is the looker out of the 3 but it sucks that we are yet to get dx 11 support for it

gameseveryday2982d ago

They had released patch for the pc version but contrary to what Crytek promised there was no DX 11 included.

according to DigitalFoundry:

"The unavoidable conclusion we came to is that when frame-rate does crash in those affected areas, it's actually Crysis 2 on PS3 that holds up better."

"however, close up, it's clear that shadows are somewhat more blocky and unattractive on the Microsoft console."

"Bearing in mind the limited nature of the 3D support, it doesn't really factor into the purchasing decision – but the PS3 undoubtedly gives the better picture here."

"this makes Crysis 2 one of the most inconsistent performers released in recent times. In these situations, it seems that it is the Xbox 360 version that has the most difficulties, though there's no mistaking that both platforms seem to lag badly in much the same areas"

Way to be one-sided...
I suggest everyone just read the DF article themselves and not trust malandra.

(The conclusion in the article is actually more like... Inconclusive. Which is good for everyone, I guess.)

@ malandra

Way to troll fanboy, I guess you didn't read the conclusion.

"There's little doubt that the Xbox 360 is the cleaner, crisper experience and for the most part it commands a small but significant frame-rate advantage and fewer little glitches; especially outside of combat scenarios, the game just seems to run that much more smoothly."

"On balance, 360 has the edge in terms of visuals and general performance."

SMH at you being an idiot like most wouldn't have read the comparison. We can all be fanboys and be selective can't we?

PS3 maintains a consistent fps during intense action scenes there for it runs and plays better.

PS3 has better gamma/light levels

360

LoT has other examples of how poor the gamma/lighting is for 360 http://bit.ly/hikTvk

PS3 has no screen tearing at all

So all in all where it counts, the PS3 tops the 360. Enjoy those few extra pixels while I'll enjoy the gameplay and everything else.

@people saying it's the same
It's most definitely not a tie. The 360 suffers from screen tearing, erratic/inconsistent fps, poor gamma/light levels.... how is that the same as the PS3 version?

They need to compare MP next.

If they don't have displacement maps generated for all the art, then what is the point of releasing a dx11 version of it???

just sayan...

Downtown boogey2982d ago

There are still more to DX11 than tessellation, but yeah you're mostly right...

Queefy_B2982d ago

PC version
is the looker out of the 3 but it sucks that we are yet to get dx 11 support for it,

Thats true, im gonna finish it once on ps3 for the trophies and then again on max on my pc.

Amphion2981d ago

Why are we still arguing about this when Killzone 3 looks better anyway.

hennessey862981d ago

Id say they both do things better than the other but there are parts of crysis 2 that blow away killzone 3. in parts its simply unbelievable

The people who were in denial have nowhere to run now. The game is out, people are seeing it running for themselves, and we can all see; it is a barely enhanced console port on PC.

What a disappointment, I only wish the people in denial would have realized this sooner, rather than bashing everyone who dared to criticise a unreleased game. As if it can magically turn into a PC lead title in the last month of development...

halocursed2982d ago (Edited 2982d ago )

OMG! I don't see much difference between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions..what was all the noise?

strifeblade2982d ago

360 version runs better. and certain instances looks better, look at IGN's review

fooltheman2982d ago

ign is exaggerating everything...

and I thought the reviewer founded himself in some black hole of some company ( no objectivity as a result)

( I know you can't be fully objective...but you can try too)

NukaCola2982d ago

PS3 version is 2 frames less on average, but has zero screen tearing. The resolution is less than the 360 according to DF but not LOT. I dont care to really get in it. Both versions are great and the PC destroys both of them. End..

Raf1k12982d ago

If '360 version runs better. and certain instances looks better' is what you got from IGN then you should realise that it contradicts what IGN said about the two versions earlier which was that the PS3 version is signigicantly worse. You really shouldn't be taking their words so seriously.

strifeblade2982d ago (Edited 2982d ago )

@NukaCola
you can't say the pc version destroys both since it is only an enhanced console port to tell you the truth. No doubt it looks the best, but if it destroyed them, one would assume it was absolutely optimized and designed for the pc ground up in every way which is not the case

IGN is a reliable games website. They played and beat all versions of the game so i do take their word. Perhaps what you are reffering to earlier when ign said it destroyed the ps3 version is when they were comparing beta MP demos in which the case the PS3 demo was flawed and taken off the network as a result.

The final version reviews of both games seem reliable because they are the final build.

ILikeTurtles2982d ago

Rofl yeah, since IGN is a very reliable source xD
look at lensoftruth pics/analysis
they are identical, but the 360 has a little smoother framerate and screen tearing while the PS3 is vsynced.

In other words: It's a tie.

Queefy_B2982d ago

360 version runs better. and certain instances looks better, look at IGN's review

Thats not true at all it has like 1.4fps highrer average which is nothing and has screen tearing and no vsync , and btw going by what ign says is like me reviewing bulletstorm or gears.

karl2982d ago

i just bought this game over killzone3 ... i am soo disappointed, i hope it gets better

im terribly regretting my choice... and it doesnt look nowhere near as killzone 3.. i ve seen both of them running

Aren't you all bored of comparing crysis 2 yet?

waltyftm2982d ago

Yes, How many times do they have to do this.

jakethesnake2982d ago

Especially with small compressed images.
