Performance has always been a bit of a contentious issue with the Assassin's Creed franchise, as the Xbox 360 has generally been the more dominant console.
I hope the difference is less this time, though 2 wasn't so bad.
Yea, AC2 wasn't too bad, but the difference was still quite noticeable when placed side-by-side.
Good to hear.
It shouldn't be a 'should' It should be a 'will'. (thats a lot of shoulds)
I never played the 360 version on AC2, but I played it on the PS3 and I didn't notice any problems besides the occasional screen tear.
i didnt have any major issues with the PS3 also besides some screen tearing.
Graphically both the games were nearly identical, but the frame rate on the PS3 version wasn't on par and the screen tearing was horrendous... But it didn't really affect the game that much in my play through... In fact the screen tearing kind a felt like the animus wasn't performing that great and initially I actually felt it was on purpose lol to show that even the Animus had V-Sync problem :P Either ways, I am waiting for some comparisons before picking AC:B... Now that I have a 360 as well, I will at least wait for the result.. If the difference isn't significant, I'll pick up the PS3 version.. Fingers crossed
WHAT!? 2 was horrible on PS3! It had A LOT of screen tearing, pop-ups! Area5 team had a comparison on co-op, difference is huge! I sure as hell hope Brotherhood is better!
I own that game and it has very little screen tearing and pop ups.
Yeah i platinumed it. Circled the entire map about 10 times...only screen tearing ruined it. nothing else.
Indeed I own it and platinumed it aswell, one of my fave games! But if you don't think that game is without problems on the PS3 watch this from the 24th minute! http://revision3.com/coop/a...
Why should it match? It should 100% be equal to or even better. I don't like where some developers do this even this late in the game
With the more powerful hardware you'd think that the PS3 version would be more dominant. But since it's up to the developers and it is well known that developing for the PS3 is a more demanding task, the PS3 version will only be as good as the effort that Ubisoft put in.
I was thinking the same thing. With the power of the PS3, it should be the other way around. 360 should be the one matching the PS3's.
The idea of a multiplatform title is for both games to look pretty much the same, instead of making one look better than the other. I'm quite sure the effort put on the PS3 version will make it look as good as the 360- or similar, at least, but not "superior", because that would be silly.
It's always sad when the guys making the game can't get the two versions running the same, let alone commit to doing it. Why, if they can't give you gamers that much, should you give them your hard earned money?
i played AC2 on PS3 and had no problems with it, the preformance differences people go on about are 99% flamebait.
I think there has been more than enough evidence provided which shows that the games weren't as close as they should have been.
Well, PS3 versions lacked the v-sync... but that's not so a bad thing in AC, where you have some made-up glitches of the Animus which look like vertical desync.
I don't think so given ubisoft's record..
Well I would hope so. Weird that devs actually have to come out and make a public statement that the PS3 game can reach the same performance as the 360 version. Times have changed.
yea now only if platforming wasn't automatic...
It will be more or less the same as Assassin's Creed 2. Same screen-tearing, same frame rate, Same everything. Only new content is the story & play around with new stuff like the Tank & Missile boat.
Don't know it wouldn't be ! Assanins Creed brotherhood is leading on PS3 just like future solider , Driver and other Ubisoft titles . Never heard of a leadplatform game trying to keep up with a port
give me the blu-ray version
All multiplatforms should do better on PS3.
AC1 and 2 on PS3. Seemed good enough. AC1 had a few framerate stutters but played OK.
Like someone said earlier, it shouldn't be "should" its suppose to be "it will"...doesn't sounds like a lot confidence to me...should of made the PS3 the lead platform then if they are feeling that way and wouldn't have this problem.
It's a BS article ! PS3 is confirmed the leadplatfom by Ubisoft
Ps3 can be lead platform but the Xbox 360 just manhandles multiplats and the Ps3 likes to do things the complicated way. Thus Multiplats>Xbox 360
How is it a bullshit article when the quote comes direct from Ubisoft?
Gamerunion is spitting this out there ass ! Ubisoft said themselves the PS3 version is the leadplatform and I played the beta at home and The single player this year at E3 is runs perfect ! So If history proves correct ! Leading on PS3 then port to 360 , both versions run identical........
Isn't this story is like 2 weeks old? http://n4g.com/news/628175/...
Cool, although i didnt really have a problem with the first AC on the PS3. For some reason out of both versions i liked that one the most.
Yea i want to know why that sh*t happens to PS3 performance drops with a lot games, why haven't Sony fix's the frame rate drops yet. look at the hole video and see the issues.
Because most games are written for PC/360, And the sloppy code does not handle well on the PS3. There are other reasons though. 1 ppu vs 3 ppu's Unless SPU's are properly used. Check uncharted 2 capped at 30fps, no screentearing, smooth gaming experience with the best graphics to boot.
its simple either it has vsync or it doesn't no if maybe should bull someone needs to post the facts.
