BioWare rocks, Thats how a multi-platform games is done. I would however choose the Xbox version for having a lot less screen tearing.

PS3 for me, better overall frame rate and MLAA..

OhReginald3972d ago (Edited 3972d ago )

how does the ps3 version have better overall frame rate? look in the video at 1:05...ps3 drops to 12 frames per second while 360 doesn't drop at all. Then when they continue to fight the spiders the ps3 version goes above 30 and below 30 making a unbalance. But the 360 version is consistent at 30 fps.

and anyways screen tearing makes the game look like it has bad frame rate.

MegaMohsi3972d ago

@above look at global avg FPS, PS3 is higher and even the LOT article states the PS3 FR is higher but at the cost of screen tearing...

maxcer3971d ago

you would rather have 1 more fps rather than the screen tearing? odd

Projekt7tuning3971d ago

They both look great. You really got to be knit picking with fanboy glasses on to say ones better than the other.
If you have both systems, I'd buy it for the one that I liked the controller for the best. And that's an easy test. Just download both versions and see which one is more comfortable for long sessions.
BioWare should be supported by us gamers for their dedication to making multiplats near perfect ports. They show they care for the quality of their games and us the gamer.

I agree, but I think they're pretty much the same; I bought mine for 360, because I like the acheivment system better and it seems easier to install games on my 360.

It all pretty much came down to the fact that I finished Origins on 360, so I wanted my save to carry over....not that I've really seen anything in relationship to my Origins save, after about 25 hours of gameplay.

Wow MLAA implemented by Bioware, impressive. If I didn't get this for PC already (don't get me started on the DX 11 issues) I wouldve gotten it for PS3

callahan093971d ago

When I first ran the game in DX11 on PC, it was crashing a lot and/or having lots of slow-down issues. Then I upgraded my AMD video drivers and it fixed everything, runs like a dream now. Try that?

MegaMohsi3971d ago

unfortunately I have a Nvidia card, we need updated drivers to fix the situation

BioWare knows how to make multiplats. That said, the game isn't graphically impressive on any platform. Not sure why they couldn't even put it on ME2 graphical level at least.

Empire X3972d ago (Edited 3972d ago )

I agree 100%.I like the look of the first one better. Good game but graphically it's a bit of a let down IMO.

paintsville3972d ago

Hmmmm. Well this on was VERY close. As for graphics I can't really say one is much better than the other. But I'll attempt to objective. PS3's MLAA is a savior for currently releasing games as it frees up a lot of RSX processing cycles to be used for lighting, geometry, etc , and it's implemented very well in this game. I'm impressed. However, there's still more screen tearing than 360 had and let's just be frank about it. This screen tearing thing that we keep seeing be due to bandwidth being at a premium with the RSX. The tearing would have been much worse had it not been for doing the MLAA on the SPU's in this game. Again, I'm impressed. There's still one thing that I find baffleing this late in PS3's life cycle. "Mandatory" installs. This is still unacceptable. I realise that the blu-ray drive in the ps3 doesn't have the available bandwidth of the 360's dvd drive but, and this will surprise you (But I am trying to be objective), if UC2, KZ2, and GOW3 developers can pull this off then the rest of the world should at least give it a shot. This is a good game to get on either system and shouldn't be missed by RPG gamers looking to have a lenghtly fun filled adventure.

Lol thats funny, I love how sarcastic you are.
