Mafia xbox = one of the best xbox graphics.
Mafia PS3 = one of the compromised PS3 graphics. They can max it, but it will be impossible on xbox

did you even look at all of the screens? you dissagree with a question? how is that posssible?

Come on, it's clear that the 360 version is better. It has better anti-aliasing, has ambient occlusion that is missing in the PS3 version and looks crisper in general.



The ambient occlusion that I am talking about is the subtle shadows that you see behind objects. Switch back and forth and you will see what I am talking about.

As i told you in the other thread of same name.
No its not clear.
Again look at the tree's in the top left corner and at the grass arround the sewer opening, it's washed out on the 360 and you can count the branches and leaves on the PS3.
Switch back and forth, and you will see what i am talking about;-)

The ps3 version just looks raw. Like it is missing effects or something. The grass and other textures just looks raw and jagged on the ps3 while on the 360 version it is smooth and better balanced with other elements in the scene.

Aquanox3647d ago

I wouldn't have noticed without those screenshots. Xbox 360 also has better shadows, not it's clear.

Well like I said before. Are these little details that important?
I want to know more about pop ups if it is like RDR,.. then there is no more talking needed.

From those pics it's hard to tell but the lighting is clearly better on 360. When there are some video of both game engines running, we will have some idea of frames, draw distance...etc. This reminds me of Saboteur comparisons, bad lighting on PS3, same with RDR, but with severe drops to the fps, draw distance pop in, washed out colors and lower resolution...Hmmmm...

For some reason I suspect we will not be seeing the 2 versions running side by side before launch. Doesn't matter, it's a GTA clone. It does look good regardless and the PS3 has some sort of DLC ( for now ) so I guess the PS3 wins even if it's a little less in the graphics. They aren't saying if the video's they've released ( substantial ) are PS3 or 360, again, just like RDR.

It's not a GTA clone. If you've played the original game you would know that it's very different.

ProjectVulcan3647d ago (Edited 3647d ago )

Pc wins another one you mean, and i dont even have to look......LOL

Neither of them has AA enabled from the shots. Plus we dont really know performance which is more critical than anything

TEFL0N_D0N_813647d ago

360's does look better. Call it a fluke, blame it on the TV, blame it on the devs, but 360's version has better lighting, outlines, textures, etc. Sometimes you just gotta bite down and admit the truth. So dizzleK, I'm agreeing with you on this one.

Doesn't mean I'm picking up the game though. It's gonna need some good reviews for me to look at it more.

I suspect that, and is owned by the same persons. They all post similar and sometimes identical articles. All crap, of course.

jeenyus3647d ago (Edited 3647d ago )

Sick of those german websites, Google translator and all that crap. It's a flood, FFS.

No point in over-analysing screenshots, if the game is good it will be played either way. Analysing feels like grandpa nitpicking...

Cheboury3647d ago

I just hope that the Xbox 360 version runs at the same clip and sports as few screen tears as the PS3. Regardless, BOTH VERSIONS look AMAZING!

peeps3647d ago

Really? graphically i don't think the game looks anything special but i suppose looking at still like this does show up any flaws that aren't usually noticeable in motion.

i'd say both versions have their strengths and weaknesses but perhaps the 360 takes the edge overall. Either way it should be enjoyable on either console providing the performance is similar

kevnb3647d ago

deja vu, we already had a similar article where the pc owned all.

TwistedMetal3647d ago

Thats all I really care about when it comes to games. The content and gameplay.
