its just read lens the ps3 version came out on top and then you have an xbox site like ign starting flaim baits all of a sudden i wish they would stop comparing these silly articles as i like. i prefer killzone 3 over crysis2 anyday because to me killzone 3 is on another level. and crysis2 failed on consoles if i was going to get crysis2 it would be the pc version peace out?

Vherostar2770d ago

there is always gonna be one other site saying ps3 loses even though we seen proof it doesn't. Its easy to pick pics that favour either console.

thewhoopimen2770d ago

I dunno man... I think the person who submitted this article, basically made up the title. The link says "Crysis 2 in the graphic comparison: PS3 vs. Xbox 360 Xbox 360" Nothing about anyone winning or losing.


captain-obvious2770d ago

i like the flame bait on the title

ohhhhhhhhh N4G
you'll never change

and one more thing
its not the original title of the article

MaxXAttaxX2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

That dark crush in the harsh contrast of the 360 version hides detail.
I can't even see the detail on their clothes because 360 makes things so dark.
Also, notice those textures.

PS3 version looks more similar to PC one anyway.

Pixelated_Army2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

I've noticed no framerate issue at all with the PS3 version. excellent multiplat so far.

you notice how they didn't provide a good amount of variety with screenshots for this comparison...yeah that's call cherry picking but when they finally did show something other than direct sunlight the 360's harsh contrast/gamma crushes huge amounts of detail in the textures.

and here you notice hardly a difference at all. It does look a bit stretched on the PS3(set the display output to 720p max and you should be good).

Hanuman2769d ago

@NathanExplosion; Haven't you seen the pic with the red truck?! The difference just hurts!

I can't wait to go and see the difference for myself at the end of the week. (Us Europeans have to wait a few more days!GDDMT!) I'm curious how the PS3 version will look in motion and if the difference is still noticable when you actually play the game. If the difference is as big as the article is showing, the PS3 is in for a treat when it comes to CryEngine 3 based games in the future. Sony makes sure the PS3 has lot's of nice exclusives thougout the year to keep the fans happy, but still it's a damn shame the PS3's power is so hard to tap into when it comes to making multi-plats. Without proper assistance and funding from Sony it clearly isn't possible to take advantage of the extra horsepower. Also...there shouldn't be any discussion about wich version looks better in the first place. They should perform according to horsepower.

Calling "retard" people stating facts based on their real gaming experience, it's sad.

keep your delusional/mind if you want, but don't insult people who are just seeing by themself the reality.

ChrisW2769d ago

Personally, I'm waiting for a comparison of all three consoles... the PS3, the Xbox360, and (according to many aforementioned console owning fantards) the PC.

still with this crap? Just buy Crysis 2 on PC. Crysis is a PC game. You get the best version on the PC.

Crysis on consoles was a big mistake but then again is all about the money.

XxBarretxX2769d ago

How is it a mistake? Is graphics the only reason to justify buying Crysis? Because if it, you shouldn't buy it.

Ryudo2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Yeah if you want graphics then Crysis 2 doesn't come close to 3Dmark available on the PC for no charge.

Although that is only an unplayable tech demo but if it's graphics you want forget games. Go watch yourself some tech demos.

DigitalAnalog2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

I concur with iPad. Nowhere did he state that "graphics" was the main reason. After reading the reviews, it was clear that Crysis 2 was a step-down just as Oblivion was a step-down from Morrowind and Deus-Ex: IW was a step-down from Deus-Ex 1.

-End statement

ChrisW2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )


How was it a mistake? It was a mistake because it's an awesome game that could have been more awesome. But thanks to gimping the graphics so it could be developed for consoles, PC gamers don't get to enjoy the game in the way that it should've been.


3DMark Basic (Free) is crap because you cannot change any of the settings. The only way its graphics are better *than* Crysis 2 is if you're able to max out the settings, which will cost you $19.95. With that in mind, I'm certain only naive console fantards gave you those "agrees".

PC version is where it is peace out?

Muffins12232769d ago

theres only been one site to say ps3 version better,ign review also said xbox version was better and this site and i saw one awhile back that said xbox version was better

socomnick2769d ago

why would you believe lens of truth over ign. Cmon now.

Wait for the Eurogamer comparison, the images don't lie the 360 version looks way better.

kikizoo2769d ago

Only in fanboy dreams, it's the same (almost) good multiplatform games, and it's not really new to see differents sites giving "best version" for one console or other, since it's pretty much the same game most of the time, and the only differences are based on tv, console set up (when it's not a biased fanboy comparison)

the fact is that crysis 2 is a 8 game, so pretty good, but logicly not on par with best exclusives on pc or ps3 for graphics, wich is normal.

hoops2769d ago

socomnick, they look almost the same.

CryofSilence2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )


As much as I hate to refer to Lens of Truth, but this seems to be a bit more honest.

A lot of the time, the PS3 version actually has the advantage (which I didn't expect), while others show the Xbox 360 version looks better.

Bonerboy2769d ago

Well there you have it, The Xbox version is the better version.

Rikan2769d ago

This should have been a PC exclusive, going console effected the end result. It still looks amazing, but would have been 2 times better had they just stuck with PC.

Reviews so far say its good. I'll be getting this for my PC, as should anyone who can.

I'll wait for Digital Foundry to do a proper comparison.

lodossrage2770d ago

how about if you HAVE both systems, just rent both and compare for yourselves?

It amazes me this day and age with how people need to be "told" which is better rather than have proof and opinions of their own

Corrwin2770d ago

It amazes me how some folk really expect others to rent or buy 2 copies of a game to compare.

Which is really the dafter option? Reading a technical analysis or playing the same game twice on two different systems because you don't trust anybody?

lodossrage2770d ago (Edited 2770d ago )

is needing an "opinion" spoon fed to you.

If a person is that obsessed with pixel counting to the point he or she "needs" to know which one is "better", then yeah why not see BOTH for yourself WITH YOUR OWN EYES and THEN formulate an opinion.

It has nothing to do with trust. It has everything to do with having your OWN opinion rather than taking someone else's opinion as gospel

Thoreau2769d ago

if you state common sense you will lose bubs quickly.

dantesparda2769d ago

Im with lodos, the man has a good point. I understand what he's saying perfectly

MiloGarret2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

That's because you have some sort of brain-related problem. Possibly idiocy.

Watching/reading a technical analysis performed by relatively proffessional individuals and making your own mind up based on their observations is obviously the better choice. You're saving money, energy, and most importantly time as compared to renting both games. Not to mention the fact that it's not even a possibility for residents of many countries because there are no renting services available.

If you're smart, you'll do the sensible thing and base your purchase on the comparisons online. If you're really smart, you won't even care about the comparisons and simply buy the 360 version, which 9/10 times will look and play better. If you're smarter still (like me!), you'll buy a pc capable of playing multiplat games on superior settings and laugh your ass off at these comparisons.

ChrisW2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )


Well said on your last paragraph.

Surfaced2770d ago (Edited 2770d ago )

We really don't have a choice at this point. Every other site is declaring "OH, XBOX 360 WINS!" or "WOW, PS3 WINS!"

Just gotta wait for the real experts.

come_stains2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Who's waiting LOT already did it... Game over it's a tie!

callahan092770d ago (Edited 2770d ago )

Comparisons don't matter. The game is practically identical on both systems. Pixel counting and magnification lenses and framerate counting equipment aside, you're not going to notice one way or the other if you just pick a version of the game and go home and play it. Here's what it comes down to:

1. Which console do my friends play the game on, if I intend to play multiplayer I'll get it on that machine.

2. Which controller feels better to me?

3. If 1 & 2 are a wash, then would I rather pad my trophy level or gamerscore?

4. If 3 doesn't make a difference to you either, then FLIP A COIN.

These comparisons are a waste of everyone's attention, though. Multiplatform games are either downright obviously superior on one platform, or the differences are negligible, so these in-depth comparisons are just a whole lot of nothing if you ask me.

rrw2770d ago

my bet is he will say "ps3 have this advantage, xbox have this advantage, blah blah, if you want better version buy pc"

come_stains2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

wait you shall Dilbert!
Sux's you to have to wait. Why not grow some and buy the game you want! ...Guess what I don't have to wait I made a perfect decision with out ANYONE HOLDING MY HAND. Just like all the other big people out there and I get to go home and play tonight and not a week later!

paintsville2769d ago (Edited 2769d ago )

Wow PS3 version has Waaaaaaay more jaggies. But it's still better than Killzone3.
360 superior release, no "mandatory" install required, is much more crisp and appears to be running at a higher resolution.. PS3 version is no slouch but 360 version is clearly superior this time around probably due to superior unified shader tech of the 360 GPU and it's huge amounts of available bandwith.

Before anybody starts kickig off, the title is fake and not mentioned in the article anywhere. It's just a ploy by the submitter to gain heat, a shameless tactic that seems to have 'somehow' been approved here.

heylo2770d ago


btw, the PS3 version has higher res body textures:

yume-k2770d ago

It's clear that the 360 version of the game is better.

Vherostar2770d ago

Clear?? As what?? You need to look up the term clear in the dictionary mate.

Krimson-Rage2770d ago

To the people who only read fake headlines, yes.
