After the latest batch of Final Fantasy XIII screens, you can come to a clear choice of which version is going to be the best option for you -- if graphics make the difference.
ps3 version looks better
both ugly ;-)
we already know ps3 version will look better no need to hate
No need to compare. If you're really interested in comparison shots wait for the inevitable Lens of Truth.
Honestly, if they didn't have the name of the system next to the tiny picture I would think they were the same version. I'd really like to see some HD grabs of the same scenes to get a better idea. Doesn't really matter, though. Because if I do get it I'll pick up the PS3 version.
Well according the Square Enix themselves, the game is going to look identical on both systems But hey, who you going to believe, the developers who created the game themselves, or some retarded fanboy?...
"While the graphics of both versions are solid, the PS3 appears to be the cleaner of the two." Yep, I agree with that.
where are these screens exactly? the only ones Ive been seeing are some printscreens.
Sure, wait until the worst more compressed screenshot batch of the 360 version is released and make a comparison article. What a bunch of idiots. How about using the ones before this batch?
JRPGs are not so hot anymore, people that thought they loved them just realized that the problem was there were not any good western RPGs, but thts not a problem anymore.
" How about using the ones before this batch?" You mean the ones that were from the ps3 version with the 360 buttons photoshopped in. : )
Yeah, the best way to compare HD games graphics is by comparing 430x320 images.
The PS3 version looks brighter, more vivid and just in general alot more crisper. I guess thats because of the blu ray. The 360 version looks good though the colors look drab and a bit more washed out. Also maybe its just me but everything in the looks a bit boxy. For instance the characters chins dont look as rounded. While the 360 version looks suprisingly better than I thought it would, youd be a damn fool if you owned both systems and purchased it on the 360. All the DLC in the world wouldnt change my mind.
i know it's off topic but does that guy named metalgearrising really have no life, because take a look at his comment on examiner wow. anyway on topic to ps3 version looks better to me.
Erm will someone please explain to this Examiner.com what a comparison is.. They should be the same screen shots, side by side, in hi res....Not totally diff tiny screen shots on seperate pages.
uh, even if the PS3 version does look better compared to PS3 exclusives it looks like crap. I will be buying this used.
All conditions need to be the same. The shots are from completely different area of the game. Lens of truth are the best at this.
LensofTruth won't make a comparison becuase the PS3 version will win. They normally only do comparisons where the 360 wins for stupid reasons.
most of the time http://www.youtube.com/watc...
but the PS3 version is already getting nods around the web, so it's hard to counter at this point.
There is a very noticeable difference in lighting, specular highlighting, and most importantly anti aliasing. Much more jaggies in the 360 version and textures are not as detailed. Even the color and contrast is a little more vivid on the PS3. The comparison posted in Neogaf comparing the resolution and anti aliasing gives a much better comparison of the differences. PS3 has that extra layer of polish that just looks much much better. Its really a bunch of smaller details that all come together to make all the difference. When you see the two games in person on a large screen TV you'll see the difference...well maybe fanboys won't, they'll just trick their minds into thinking the 360 version looks better. Even if Square Enix came out and said it openly (which they won't after all that money MS gave them), the fanboys would still deny that PS3 looks better.
So what's the problem? I have been on N4G for some time now and have seen many websites give unfair comparison shots of the PS3 when it came to multiplatform games and now that the tables are turned, you seem to have a problem with this? Sure, go ahead and be a hypocrite.
"" How about using the ones before this batch?" You mean the ones that were from the ps3 version with the 360 buttons photoshopped in. : )" and WMW comes around the ring climbs on the turnbuckle and delivers "MASSIVE PWNAGE" to the flailing aquanox who is half conscious and even getting into fights with the audience, This fight is over folks.
yeah, that video "compairison" deserved no hits.
They look too close to call for me. However I bet the uncompressed audio and HD cut-scenes look better on the PS3. But the gameplay itself does not look any different at all to me.
could they make the pictures any smaller?
Poorly put together, bad shots. Overall fail. Im sure there will be many more comparisons in the near future using the same old images to continue this stale fermenting argument. Hooray!
epic fail. your comparison isnt working, and plus, after all that garbage by SE, you really think il believe any comparisons? lost interest after gimped screenshots, lies, linearity, lack of towns, newbie combat system, horrid summons (a motorcycle? what?). plz move on from this multiplatform epic fail of a fantasy game and get on with versus 13
http://www.citrustreesonlin... vs http://www.dietsinreview.co... which one has better graphics?
Guys just wait for the game. We won't get any honest comparison if we let SE supply the SS.
430 x 233... What are these? PSP screens?
Yeah, nobody wants to show real comparison screenshots because there would be outrage if people found out the 360 got the better version
These are the screens that have talked about as being some cheap screen captures.. You can even see the mouse pointer in one of them.. http://www.n4g.com/News-477... EDIT: Disagree all you want doesn't change facts and the truth.
Well Square released them. So they are what they wanted to be released. $hitty capture or not
So instead of using your brain and realizing something is wrong you just roll with it and accept that this is what the 360 version looks like? I'm sorry but screen shots are supposed to represent the game and these are not doing it.. Released by SE or not they are still wrong when compared to proper screenshots.
Giant don't try to reason with them, they're gonna take it and run with it.
The only course of action is to wait until both games are released, these cr*ppy 'comparisons' aren't helping anyone...
The question is, if they're actually doing it - WHY THE FU*K ARE THEY BOTHERING!? No fan worth their salt is going to give a damn which system they play it on, I understand this whole mess was because MS wanted the franchise on the 360 giving any 360-only owners no reason to buy a PS3 if they wanted to play it, but I can only imagine those on the fence fans being honestly pissed if the game they get looks worse than press pics. Nevermind Square throwing their rep away for this.
"So instead of using your brain and realizing something is wrong you just roll with it and accept that this is what the 360 version looks like? " remember all the GameTrailers fiascos that 360 fanboys like yourself would gloat over and then LMAO @ ps3 owners who tried to say what you just said above. OH THE IRONY. lol
I really dont think the xbox version looks like those screenshots show. The xbox can do much better than that. Examiner is just trying to get some hits for free.
Wow and that's coming from raztad
indeed lol the size of the pics is ridiculous tbh
@Blaze It's an imposter! jk
Honestly, those are the same shots from earlier that showed up at TeamXbox with the mouse pointer that looked like rushed grabs aren't they(I can't really tell from the quality of this sites posting of them with my knacked lappy!I'll have to check hwhen I shift the missus off my rig-bloody WoW!)? The ones from SE that look like sh1t? Whatever, no site which has had both versions has even claimed the 360 shots look this poor. Most sites I've read might give the edge to PS3 version while a few make it out to be six of one and half a dozen of the other visually(one better in game and one on the CGI)with the uncompressed audio on PS3 being the consistent plus for either version. Anyway, there was NOTHING you wouldn't expect from a multi led on one of the systems ion ANY review where they had both versions so just, exactly why are SE running around messing the issue like this? There is NO awful 360 version ready t emerge and there's no chaos causing weak PS3 version coming either! All I can imagine, and I'm reaching I'll freely admit, is that because they haven't managed perfect parity after claiming they had they're overreacting and trying to fudge ANY differences until the game's been on sale a little while and the bulk of gamers have made their chice on the matter. Seriously, though, if there was anything t see here the first sites who got both games would have flagged it and none of them found anything even minor to distinguish between the two. Just why SE are shooting themselves in the foot and making it seem they're trying to hide the 360 version is beyond me and if they ARE too proud to admit they couldn't match the two to a degree NEVER possible then I give up trying to understand just what's going on under Wada's reign. There's no scandal here except SE's thinking we're all stupid, I'm afraid. Multiplats looking any great deal different, let alone noticeably better on either, are countable on the fingers of one bloody foot anyway. Jesus Square, wtf? I've just about had it with FF13 and SE's last minute efforts to up it's profile by insulting our intelligence!
Weak. To compare you need side by side, same setting screen shots, not just a bunch taken from different points in the game, cut scene, in-game. Examiner are just using the newly released 360 screen to try and get some heat. If this thing is that important to you, you should at least wait until the screens in the COMPARISON are COMPARABLE.
if the Xbox sells well thanx to people skipping the vs becomes multi. you idiots buy the game on the ps3 enjoy then COMES FFVS HA YEA!!
Wait for Lens Of Truth comparison to see what the difference is between the 2 is
though i do think that for once the PS3 will get the 'better performing' version of the game
who needs the lens of truth comparison when we know the ps3 version looks good, we know there is no compression, we know there is no installs and we know there are no multiple disc the ps3 version is the only one worth getting period.
After that Bioshock 2 bull comparison, they have no more credibility then the Examiner. But we all know why people like you wait for LOT comparisons.;)
Its true that comparison of bioshock 2 sunk their credibility completely. After playing both they just plain lied crazy stuff.
if Lens of Truth has done a bologna sandwich comparison? I'm REALLY hungry, and i wont be able to eat until they tell me which one to buy
what was the bioshock2 incident? can some one summarize it?
@gololo Check these screen shots. http://www.lensoftruth.com/... I own Bioshock 2 on the PS3, and it's nowhere near as bad as those screenshots. I don't understand how anyone can trust this site after crap like this, that is unless it makes their console look good.
Jesus, that's awful! I've also got the PS3 version and can also assure people it looks NOTHING like as poor as that. I just hope their PS3 was on the blink as if I see another PS3 game compared on LoT that desn't even look as good as it does on my set up then I'll lose complete faith in them. Not that I ever had a great deal in them, GT or DF as when they started trying to bother finding differences you can't possibly see with the naked, gaming eye just to find spurious "winners" and doing so by usinhg bloody programs I started realising they HAVE to find a winner or loser nearly every time to justify their existence which isn't conducive to them being completely honest, now is it? Also, how on earth, if they can only find a difference using a program, can we ever check out what they're finding? Fact is, and it will be exactly the same with FF13 the two versions will be virtually impossible to tell apart without really trying and never when just playing the sodding game. Yeah, the audio is uncompressed and there's only one disc on PS3(which IS an issue when you've got little children who like getting discs out for the dog to skid round the effin floor on, trust me! three discs is just three times the chance of me never finishing the game!)so most multi owners will go for the PS3 version unless they have a real preference for the 360 pad but 360 only gamers won't be playing some unruly, lazy ,mess by comparison. However, that Bio2 LoT comparison has PS3 screens of a quality unrecognisable from how the game looks on my TV and I very much doubt I've got a better set up than they have! Almost looks like they put it on an SDTV and the 360 version looks worse than it did over at my mates too! Maybe they're having issues with embedding(or whatever) their screenies but those are all of a quality well below what te truth is, ironically.
Yeah, and the 360 version doesn't look that bad either. Screenshots often look worse than the way the game will look on your HDTV. I have played both versions and I'm telling you guys, Lens of Truth's comparison was essentially accurate. Besides, you guys just ignore that their findings were almost exactly the same as Digital Foundry reported as well.
"Don't take these screenshots as any indication of how the 360 version looks - we've played it and it looks a lot better than this! We'll bring you the inevitable retraction and next set of screenshots (third time lucky?) when they arrive." by uffsite/rpgiste
IS FULL OF SH!T WE ALL KNOW WHO'S HAS THE BEST VERSION
For the Amiga, of course.
All I know is if Square is trying to pull something, are still doctoring pics regardless of version, its only going to blow up in their faces come release day. Ten times as worse than if they just came out and admitted one version of the game didn't match the other.
Not putting pictures side by side on a comparison = EPIC FAIL
FF7 Looks better than the Xbox version of FF13 Thy Silly Little BoTs
Fail and flamebait. 2 for 2 Matt. How can you even make a comparison when the screens aren't "like for like"? What exactly are you going to compare when the game assets are the same and the minutes of detail will actually separate the two?
just by the fact that they are not side by side comparison, they are completely different scene which has color/lighting change in their picture, worthless comparison to me, and plus i will wait until full release SE has been trying to hide something for the last few days
PS3 is teh better version
I think Square has had a little bit too much.... How do they twist that frame... canlt find that button man..... What's the name of that consle babe? I can't remeber but it's alright-a-alright. What is with SE's Pokerface?.
We should all just get the version that we think/know is better. Besides gameplay>graphics or graphic>gameplay I will be getting the PS3 version since I only own a PS3.
If this is only a mistake - a chain of mistakes - then we're all either going to be laughing at it, or 360 fanboys will be tormenting the PS3 crowd because "their" looks visibly better. If the 360 version actually looks worse and people go with what they want to think as you suggest, we'll just be seeing a brutal episode in the current asinine console wars.
