Here they are - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare side by side for the first time. Since CVG posted a bunch of in-game movies from direct from the Xbox 360 retail code this morning, they've had numerous emails asking about the PS3 version.
I prefer comparison videos from GameTrailers and GameVideos but these are not bad.
Isn't it sad that the 360 is able to keep up with the PS3.. i thought Sony said that the next generation doesn't start until they say so! From all the hype Sony gave it I thought the PS3 will have better graphics than the 360 right when it launched.. A year(a half)later you still have Sony fanboys wishing and praying that Multi Plat games and even exclusives will be equivelant to that of the 360s games! Sad sad sad! Good thing I didn't buy into sony's hype! @PS3fans below- There was a lot bashing of PS3 fans and Sony itself about its competitors. So many statemetns made by Kutaragi about the PS3 will be the greatest thing to come out until the second coming of Jesus! That's the reason Kutaragi is no longer associated with Sony.. All you fanboys believed all that and now its just getting harder and harder to justify spending $600 on a GAMING CONSOLE. If you bought the PS3 for blu ray then you are probably getting your moneys worth. But if you bought it as a gaming machine then you probably feel ripped off. Specially now that you can get one for $399!
there was def more rain drops in the ps3 version jk
ever heard of Heavenly Sword...R&C....those are pretty stunnig graphically....Uncharted..?? they look the same ...big deal...it's nice to see that the Ps3 isn't getting inferior multi plat games ne more..that is overall pointing to good things to come for the PS3..
on the sea i saw 1 more wave on the ps3 version! jk! but i think the smoke is slightly better on the ps3 or maybe my imagination! but they are the same!! maybe if u play the game on each console then u might feel a 1 bit different!! so there is no point on saying which is better!! we all can enjoy the game now with out complains!! and i hope they keep this way from now on!! it just sucks when 1 console get the crapy version!!
@1.1 Isnt it sad that the PS3's games are equally as good/better than 360 games not even a year into its life cycle compared to the 3fixme's 2 years.
LOL @ JigyJay ..ofcourse they look similar this is a MULTIPLATFORM game, built from the ground up meaning the will both have good version. You want to see the PS3's power look at Uncharted, Lair, Heavenly Sword GRAN TURISMO 5, MGS4, FF 13, KILLZONE 2... 360 has NOTHING that looks like those games. I have a 360. Yea bioshock had pretty good graphics... but it couldnt run it at 1080p NATIVE like the PS3 can COD4 huh? And Bioshock even had a "lock" onthe framerate where it woud'nt run as good so the graphics could look better. And you can turn it off or on in the options menu. The 360 does good for a old outfated machine. But its still not going to run COD4 at TWICE the resolution like PS3 can *NATIVELY*....meaning using CPU power. PS3 has come around.... and it's only uphill from here on.
@jackfatal you are not alone with the smoke thingy. But this was more like "do I see more smoke here ?". But else...identical.
i knew it, there is no way in earth PS3 will pull ahead of 360 in term of graphic. @[email protected]@@1.12"..when u have more bubbles than me then speak to me xbot fanboy..."" i took bubble from you, (now u 2 have the same number of bubbles) and now you 2 can have prober conversation.
Keep up?? this is stupid. Activision purposely made both games the same despite which platform have the advantage or not. They dont want to pick side. Keep Up, get real.
okeey!!!! ur box is better than the ps3!! so wat? leave us alone!! or u have that much free time to waist posting here and in gamespot? i guess this means only one thing!! ur box have died on u and its in the service now!! damn it!! just go to ur news!! or r u all jealous that u have no good news like us these days? if not then go away!! (shoosh) this is gaming not mine is better than urs!! this apply to u too "Evil0Angel"
okeey!!!! ur box is better than the ps3!! so wat? leave us alone!! or u have that much free time to waist posting here and in gamespot? i guess this means only one thing!! ur box have died on u and its in the service now!! damn it!! just go to ur news!! or r u all jealous that u have no good news like us these days? if not then go away!! (shoosh) this is gaming not mine is better than urs!! this apply to u too "Evil0Angel" Sony fans are the ones that glorified the PS3 has the end-all console and said all multiplatform games would be far superior on the PS3, which hasn't happened yet aside from Oblivion. Grow up kid. Learn to speak english instead of spending your life playign video games.
when u have more bubbles than me then speak to me xbot fanboy!! beside i never heard such a thing that ps3 fan said ps3 multiplatform will be far better than the 360!! only in ur mind u created such thing to justify ur attacks on ps3 for no reason!! if u dont like it then dont buy it!! @info bubble for u!! thats a normal gamers post!! u dont find these kind of statements among the xbots thats for sure!!
That's because first of all most games are built on the xbox then ported over the ps3 and secondly the PS3 is harder to code for than than Sony promised. With games like KZ2, and LA NOIRE in the works it's only a matter of time before PS3 games exceed 360 games, that is unless they keep upgrading their xboxes thus making all other models obsolete because it'd be the only way to keep up with Sony. Of course this could all not happen as well. Oh and let's not forget that the PS3 is still in it's FIRST YEAR. So the real question is "Isn't sad that the PS3 can handle just as good as the 360 even though it's been out for TWO years." That's right you all seem to forget that the PS3 came out a year later. If all the games promised for 2008 releases on time then it'll be one hell of a killer year for PS3.
It goes like this. Sony says that nextgen gaming starts when they say it does. The PS3 brings HDMI 1.3, SATA, pushing 1080p standards, high-bit rate MPEG4 and PCM audio. The 1st gen PS3 games aren't are decent. But not great. The multplat games are sub-par to the 360. XBox fanboys rant and rave about Sony's statements. Yet, Bill "the Goat" Gates starts putting in HDMI and pushing for 1080p games (as the follower he is). So, on the one hand. Sony's games weren't ready. But the multiplats are getting better and better. This was a known issue since there's a learning curve required to learn any new hardware as complex and advanced as the PS3. So, the PS3 is moving along fine. It's the 360 that has to keep changing their hardware in order to try and keep up. But the PS3 has a long plan and they thought things out for the long haul. Their vision is coming true. It wasn't long ago that xbots were saying that multiplats would never look better on the PS3. Well that's turning out to be false. And it will only get worse for 360 fan from here on out. Sorry.
Don't give me that first year crap! The PS3 was suppose to launch in March 2006 and it was delay because there wasn't enough blu ray diodes so it was ready then but just didn't have enough for a mass launch. Technically the PS3 is 1 and half years old making it just 6 months younger than the 360.. The devs had enough time working with it because they probably have the dev version for the PS3 for at least a 3 years now! That isn't my point though.. My point is Sony and its fanboys were claiming from the start the PS3 is going to blow away anything that the 360 can offer because of the power of the cell and because of Blu Ray! That's the reason why it was easy to justify a $600 purchase for many fanboys! So its sad now that they can have the same gaming experience on a $400 console than a $600 console! Compare it like this... Would you buy a first class seat that's $600 more than couch when you will get the same service and same seating as the couch section? Probably not! @gizmo- Sony does the same thing but they do a lot more and are more arrogant about their statemetns! Hmm remember the quote "rumble was last gen?" "next gen doesn't start until we say so".. Talking about changing hardwares.. How many different SKUs has the PS3 gone through? I think the answer is 4.. How many different price drops have they gone through? 2 from my last count..
This is really getting on my nerves. Why don`t you guys switch on the brain before writting something. Give me back my doll cause its nicer than yours mwoaaaaa. You`d figure out by now that most multiplatform games are just identical in terms of content from one platform to another. Infinity ward differentiated the coding of the 3 platforms so that they all run equally to the specs of the game. The content is the Same. They are certainly not trying to push one platform ahead of another as they are not going to build additional content or specific resolutions of textures or models. If they were porting COD4 on DS then you can bet that there will be specific content developped for it as the current graphic elements will not run, engine as well. Its a rewrite in this case. You will only be able to see different and specific quality titles for exclusives only. Do not expect any of the multiformat games to take specific advantage of any platform in terms of performance. The funny thing is that you would be hard pressed to compare exclusives between different platform since they are unique, hence different. As it stands the PS3 does not look leaps and bounces ahead of the 360 nor the PCs. In time perhaps. However there are some exclusives that are showing the possible potential of the platform. The scientific calculations using PS3 also show that the technology behind is a powerful paradigm. In practice, many developpers will have to shell out some to get going on it. Whether it works out in the future or not, its something no one can predict for sure. Just enjoy whats there at the moment. The 360 has already proved its potential and does not need to do so. I have a PS3 and I think it is a sleek design and a very nicely built object...I can`t really play it at the moment but I can already use it for many things such as media streaming etc... Fact is it feels heavy and robust and could easily knock someone out...It reminds me of the build of the original panasonic FZ1 3DO...ah nostalgia.
Before you go on about the different SKUs. You might want to look at the 360's version that have been ADDED to the 360 since launch. The 360 still doesn't come with built-in wireless. The HDMI 1.2 has been added afterwards since component 1080p wasn't good enough (not enough bandwidth). Sony taking about 1080p was for good reason. They HAD HDMI 1.3 from the START. The different SKUs you talk about are removing BC, USB and card readers to cut cost. The core features are still there. Cell/RSX, HDMI 1.3, SATA, 720/1080p support. So, you see it was those later feature that had to ADDED to the 360. 360 Arcade 360 Core (no HDD) 360 Premium (20GB) 360 Premium (20GB w/HDMI) 360 Elite (120GB w/HDMI) 360 Halo version And yes, the "rumble was last gen" comment was DUMB on Sony's part. But the "nextgen stats when we say it does" was not dumb. It was predictive of what was to come and is evident in M$ attempt to try and keep up by adding core features to their 360 line when the PS3 had it all along.
So of course the games will be exactly the same if the Dev are doing their job right. there no benefit to adding extra features in unless either sony or MS pay them to do it. So you can't really use this to ssy "hay such and such is better than whats it". The only time either system is truly going to show what it can do is through exclusives.
you are an idiot. first is was its not as good now its only on par with. wot the hell are you gonna say when it starts beating it ? stupid fanboy !!!
exactly the same thing. they both look identical in ma eyes
me too. but raindrops are more on ps3. i felt ground and wall textures are better on 360. these movies arent gameplay.i would rather see gameplay comparisions.
looks like it's bring out the binoculars time
Good one. The game looks truly amazing on both systems and I can't find a problem with either one. Kudos to Infinity Ward for making a perfet game for both consoles.
u wanna talk bout graphics then y isnt the mph/kmph meter not going up on BOTH systems its good but not perfect... its not as detailed as halo so ...hmmmm i remember a post saying that it can go against halo i dont think so no details no good graphics details r most important on graphics department
Damn that's pretty much right on. What I am interested about is this: The PS3 version is hooked up with HDMI probably The 360 probably on component. What if they hook up the 360 through VGA or the newer 360 model with HDMI? That are the details that would be pretty interesting. Anyway, Infinity Ward really put much effort in the game to get an equal experience. If dev's can keep this up, it will really all come down to the exclusives you like which system you'll get, ofcourse combined with the price of the console. I believe that Microsoft will strengthen its position with a pricedrop of the 360 line, just before Christmas. If the PS3/Sony feels save at 399 Euro, MS suddenly comes in and BAM announces 279 to 299 Euro for the 360 Premium (even with some games bundled). I see them doing that to keep momentum over Christmas EDIT Those Sony Defense Force/Sony Protection Group ones disagreeing: do you have the abilities to point out what it is you don't agree with. The connection methods? JEES
Wow, if TheMart is saying they look identical, the PS3 version must be superior! ;)
I´ll tell you why I disagreed. Here´s a statement from you Mart: "1080p @ HDMI also gives washed out colours. And if your screen isn't over 42 inch, not many people would notice the difference. Component has more rich colours." So what do you mean when you´re writing: "What if they hook up the 360 through VGA or the newer 360 model with HDMI?".
WTF at @4.
The MART would never say that a multiplat looked IDENTICAL. Now even his bias ass says it does. What happens when the PS3 start to truly pull away graphical? the MART can always bring up, "it's the game play that matters." Blah, blah, blah... It will happen. Bank on it. Face it xbots. The 360 is a DUD just begging to be beat down.
because MrSwede just owned you in epic proportions. He just proved (by using something you said) that you are an ignorant fan boy willing to say anything to prove your ridiculous points. In fact, i agreed to what you said, untill i read his post...
Mr. Swede for pointing out why this idiot should be banned from this site.
MART, i remeber you posting that like 2 days ago... B*tich you are soo full of SH*T!!!! your own words come back and bite ou in the ass for the FANBOI< MICROSOFT B*TCH YOU ARE!!!!! proceed to put a foot in your mouth and then yank that 360 out of your ass because you have just made yourself the most riduclous looser here and is totally uneducated... LOL!!!! this day i LMAO till my stomach couldn't take it anymore LOL!!!
Mart if your saying that both consoles are hooked up with what they came with then the PS3 isn't using HDMI because you have to buy that seperate. It's impossible to tell really because these videos aren't in HD, but on the other hand who cares? Really if one has more acorns than the other you wont notice because your playing your version...
my god is totally identical but i pefered see in hd
I cant see any difference, It be good to see other enviromentsm, grass ect. But from this vid, No Difference.
is anyone actually gonna play this game or just moan/compare it? i thought this site was for gamers?
360 looks better as usually
what a tit....
Biggie is turning over in his grave as we speak.......
maybe if you could put 3 words together correctlly I would aggree with you..
...IW on making a great multiplat game :)
Agreed. IW have set the bar now for 3rd party multiplat developers. It really doesn't look good on EA
EA might own some great developers (DICE, Criterion) but they suck themselves IMHO, how else can they charge $60 for the same sports game every year? But I get C&C from them so I have to keep them happy or they'll take it away...
They look identical in my eyes.
How is one supposed to notice any sort of difference from low resolution videos? Can't we do better than this??? BTW I own a PS3 and it seems as if both are identical copies.
I totally agree with you. You cannot make a real comparison using low rez web video. You'd really have to have identical TV's side by side with the same hookups. Regardless, the reviews coming out are saying that both versions are nearly identical. I'll be getting the PS3 version since it runs at 1080p.
Agreed. As I said in my first post, nothing beats GameTrailers' HD comparisons but until they release them, this is all we have.
Make both of them look crappy xD j/k :P and yeah, they are identical.....
Having played the demo on PC with everything maxed, I can't see why it makes them both look "crappy". Unless "crappy" is just a word you like to throw in just to get attention. All 3 versions look much like, if not completely, the same.
LOL (wildly) at black28. You're dead and delusional.
.....so just enjoy the damn game. Either version would be worth picking up.
this game was created to be the same in both systems. You cant expect from ps3 to improve graphics by itself!!!
I destinctly remember PS3 fanboys using COD4 as one of the games that will be better on the PS3. Now all of a sudden it's like "lol @ these xbots saying they look the same, the PS3 was never supposed to look better" Jeez!
So no point trying to do a comparison here. Anyways, Mart, man, seriously, go see a shrink or something, you need counselling, fast! Some ppl are just....strange...
i used to love games for the sake of playing games. now im envovled in all this fanboy foolishness. i realize i bash 360 games or try to find something wrong with them JUST BECAUSE THERE ON 360. i even remember waiting for halo to get that ONE BAD review so i could laugh in there face. i get all upset with reviewers now even though i have my own mind and opionion. i remember i use to look at a preview of a game and just go out and buy it and if i liked it, i liked it, there was no, waiting for reviews. to be honest halo was one of the games that got me into fps's. and when i first saw bioshock, i told my friend that it was gonna be a crazy game. (i still think mass effect looks boring.lol) but i realize i dont have the same fun i use to have with games as when i played them for fun. NOW DOES MY OPINION CHANGE THAT SONY WILL COME OUT ON TOP? NO, but im not gonna hope for the 360 to do bad. i just want sony to come out on top because i want to see the potential it has just like i saw with my ps1 and ps2. i remember when i got the xbox, and i knew nothing about console wars, i actually would buy some of my mulitplats on that (splintercell) because it looked better to me on that and i didnt think about betraying anybody. i think what gets me in my fanboy ways is that when 360 fanboys bash on ps3 and say it has no games or w/e, I GET ANGRY BECAUSE I KNOW IT DOES AND I JUST REACT. i know im not gonna change people in there ways of thinking and im not trying to. but im typing this because i need to help myself just become a gamer again. i know why i prefer playstation over xbox, its because im a very loyal person and i stick with someone to the end (sony) i know why i hate microsoft, its because i can tell who's just in it for the money. but regardless, i need to force myself to just pay attention to the games being brought out. so yes i still think the ps3 is better but i dont hate the 360, i just hate microsoft. i dont hate the games on 360 either. call of duty looks the same on BOTH CONSOLES, and still i find myself looking for that ONE LITTLE DETAIL BETTER ON PS3 JUST TO PROVE 360 FANBOYS WRONG. and thats why im forcing myself ot type this so i can just get it out of my system. idc if people say im just trying to get bubbles or not, but can we at least come out of this argument saying that we both have good games and were all gamers here. and i want to thank news 4 gamers podcast for bringing that out and reminding me of all the fun i had back in the day when i was 7 playing my genisis. so goodbye to my fanboyism and back to the way i used to be. and by the way, if you guys remember hotshot127..............IM HIM. hahaahhaahahahaah. but anyway, happy gaming to everyone
lol. I'm with sony for the sole reason i know Microsoft wants to Purge the Videogame industry just like the computer one, with there $$$. And be in control of everything. In whihc case you'll get stuff similar to Television (rehashed games) over and over and over all (Mainstream). And They also want Monthly paymetns to keep there wallet Fat, along with there FUD Campaigns and other decieving adventures. I for one will not support a company like that to ruin the game industyr. Its already too late for the PC one. I'm waiting for a GOOGLE Operting System.
And you think MS is the only company wanting to monopolize an industry? Just look at Sony and it's Blu-ray format and the amounts of cash thrown at it to influence the industry to back it.
I'm on the same boat you are. M$ has always been pushing us for as long as I remember (since windows 3.1) I have been having to upgrade PC parts and software or will just become a piece of crap... and soon they will kill XP just to force you into Vista either you want it or not (which I personally hate vista at all cause tried it on my dads pc and sux he even got rid of it). I keep wondering everyday when is anyone on the 360 going to sue microsoft for their console failures? WHEN!? seems like they love their customer support or like sending they X360s for repair... but I think any consumer must have a reliable "whatever" for the money they paid. Anyway... for me both versions look the same, tho the video quality is horrendous and can't really see any details, also they should have pair em right and not having em run with a half second delay or else... finally bubble for you ^^
The PS3 has way better lighting on the 1st vid, check it for yourself again. The lightning is more responsive on the ps3 version. I love the game, beat it already but man it was a ride.
I checked it again... but I disagree.. they look exactly the same.
if you look at the guy with his legs hanging out of the chopper, his helmet looks more authentic in the PS3 version whereas in the 360 version there is no specularity AT ALL on his helmet. The rest looked pretty much the same. I agree that low res videos are a stupid way to compare both versions. IF my kid really wants it I will buy it for 360( i already have the PS3 version), then I will post my own pic comparisons.
It looks like the Playstation 3 is destined to suffer the same doomed fate as the Sega Saturn that disappointed a lot of people and sold very poorly! Sega kept on saying things like, “The Saturn ‘potentially’ has more power than the Playstation and the Nintendo 64.” But the fact of the matter was that the Sega Saturn never had developers take advantage of the hardware in special ways. The parallel processing of the Sega Saturn and Playstation 3 is too difficult to work with–it is very inefficient almost all of the time. Playstation 3 has “processing power” based entirely off of Floating Point math calculations. Power like that is great for a computer spreadsheet, but finding ways to efficiently use processing power like that in videogames for the purposes of graphics is MUCH more difficult! When it comes to Polygon Power, the custom Xbox 360 GPU from ATI is much more advanced than the Playstation 3’s Non-customized GPU that is based on four-year old graphics card technology. The Xbox 360 uses a custom GPU with Unified Shading, whereas the PS3 still uses the outdated Non-Unified Shader design. And when it comes to Memory, the Xbox 360 is significantly better, just like the man said in the interview. The Xbox 360 uses the revolutionary new Unified RAM architecture, wheras the Playstation 3 still uses the outdated Non-Unified RAM architecture, which has been used for decades, and is now outdated. Plus, the Xbox 360 is far superior to the Playstation 3 in online gaming. Many legendary game developers have said that the Xbox 360 is very easy to work with and program games for; the Xbox 360 is very developer friendly. Xbox 360 takes all of the best developer features of the PC and combines them with the benefits of designing games for console hardware. Silicon Knights did the right thing by making sure that the Too Human trilogy of games will be released as a console exclusive for the Xbox 360. Xbox 360 is my favorite videogame system ever!
Should read: Please disregard *everything* above, "Xbox 360 is my favorite videogame system ever!" 8D Damn dude I can't believe you wasted your life writing all that garbage. Must be awfully boring where you live. Boring and blurry.
sony has to many proven franchises and loyalists that will get the system to sell. do you think those people that liked jak and daxter, socom, mgs, final fantasy, god of war are just NOT GONNA PICK UP THE PS3 WHEN IT COMES OUT. do you not think that developers are more expierenced in adapting to hardware then they were in the saturn days. as you can tell developers are quickly starting to learn the ps3's hardwar, call of duty 4 for example. sony is also a multimedia machine, bluray alone will help sony's system sell. also, sega saturn used cartridges still while sony had made the cd disk and it was cheaper to make. but the thing is, the price to develope for the ps3 will drop because of it gets cheaper to manufacture cell processor and all that good stuff. if you think that somone that sold over 120 million consoles is just gonna fall out of the race and not even sell 20 million, your very ignorant and have much more to learn. even perer moore said himself, he knows sony will exceed. sony can also go off of brand name, when i talk to my friend who dont know much about this console war thing, they ALWAYS say the ps3 is better JUST BECAUSE IS PLAYSTATION. thats another reason it will sell. your just to dumb to realize these things. idc if you like the 360 better but saying ps3 is the new saturn is one of the dumbest comments i've ever heard. and one quick comment on why i hate microsoft (not 360) but microsoft. THE ONLY REASON THEY MADE A CONSOLE IN THE FIRST PLACE WAS BECAUSE SONY HAD MADE A COMMENT ABOUT PLAYSTATION SALES SURPASSING PC GAME SALES SO BILL GATES GOT UPSET AND DECIDED TO HAVE PEOPLE MAKE THE XBOX TO COMPETE AGAINST PS2. THINK BACK PEOPLE OR FOR THOSE WHO ARE TOO YOUNG, LOOK IT UP SOMEWHERE
gw4k, you should tell that IW, because they obviously wasted their time doing a absolute fantastic game - on both 360 and PS3.
This quote right here: "Playstation 3 has “processing power” based entirely off of Floating Point math calculations. Power like that is great for a computer spreadsheet, but finding ways to efficiently use processing power like that in videogames for the purposes of graphics is MUCH more difficult! " Proves that you honestly have NO idea what you are talking about... sorry...
games wouldn't be possible WITHOUT floating point processing. I think this only proves that some people should stick to just playing their console of choice and leave the technical discussions to grownups. Ya hear that "Mart"?? lol
Everything this guy just said is total bull$hit
I couldnt have said it better myself. The parallels between the Saturn and PS3 amaze me, thing is the Saturn is one of my favourite machines, maybe if the PS3 only gets shmup and fighter releases when it goes the way of the Saturn it will become one of my top retro consoles in a decade or so
