NowGamer: Rage is a stunning-looking game – but which console does it look best on, PS3 or 360?
What is this? The game doesn't appear that blue on my TV...
wow, I clicked to view the first image and an exe tried to install itself. wtf
me too.. too bad they need an .dmg to install on my computer ;)
RAGE is a jaggies heaven on consoles! why don't they just do a Borderland by making it cell-shaded and get done with it? these short aren't even looking close to what have been showed before! those jaggies are not gonna look pretty on larger screens! even on the pc side, there's no advanced graphic setting. looks like id really dropped the ball with this!
Lol, bullet. Using a mac? Same here xD But it didn't try downloading anything for me :O
Something funny is happening; LoT's pics look almost identical, but these pics show one to be better than another? One is lying, the other may also be lying, but who these days are ipartial?
Knights must always tell the truth, Knaves always lie. Person A says Person B is a Knight. Person B says either Person A is lying or he (Person B) is. Is Person A a knight or knave? Person B?
Look at what we saw earlier today with the video comparisons. One site had the 360 darker, the other site had the PS3 darker. You can't trust anything from a group of people that refuse, I mean outright refuse to list exact test setups, refuse to list detailed review standards, and consistently publish articles composed of hit hungry headlines.
My God! This comparison sucks a$$!
I get flagged for trolling when I only stated the obvious in regards to the photos! Love it!
You have to remember. You say anything negative about the PS3 on here, you get flagged for it...
Yeah, but if you say anything negative about the 360, you lose bubbles; so it evens out.
both look great
i would say id did a really really good job on making the graphics same on each console.
Wow game looks amazing, been playing for 3 hours now and it's pretty cool, I'm loving it... it's pretty cool to be playing at 60fps and you notice it right away because everything feels so much more live... Amazing Looking game.. So far I'm loving it.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
PS3 jaggies. Jesus. I'll be installing it then...
Don't think it'll make much difference - the PS3 is a mandatory install and the Xbox is optional. Although installing the game on Xbox should improve the texture load times. Those jaggies on the PS3 version are unforgivable though. This is hardly a good advert for the idTech 5 engine.
Jaggies are there because game drops resolution rather than frames when its under stress. Both are 720p native though.
I have seen this game running on PS3. These jaggies are not this bad. This game looks the same on both consoles and NowGamer is full of it. They will also have two seperate people reviewing the game and I bet the scores will bve different. I really don't like this site.
Yep, even in the crap quality youtube videos the graphics don't look as terrible as that
If the game drops resolution at stressful parts, then I'm sure Nowgamer nit-picked out the worst ps3 screens they could get, when it hit the lowest parts.
This game runs 60fps. Likely the framerate is used to apply some sort of AA (remember how Kojima used half frame interleaving to add AA to GT PSP?). That said, those jaggies can be a result of grabbing a 16ms shot which indeed has jaggies; but won't be visible in motion. No video looks as bad as these shots. And then its a question how those shots were taken. Play with the contrast ratio and you loose color range resolution which will result in over saturated edges (hence jaggies). That's how those shots look.
@Shaman Would rather it lost frame rate than resolution – what's this obsession with 60fps? @NukaCola Yes, this is what the PS3 version looks like. I believe NowGamer captures on this hardware: http://www.digitalfoundry.o... Same as Eurogamer.
Both version had jaggies (supposedly the PS3 had more) and still had alot of pop-ins as well. No wonder this game is scored low. From article "Pop -ins are bad on both consoles, though it appears to take longer to load textures on the Xbox360." Edit: Just asked a friend on Live and he said that he hasn't even noticed pop-ins in his version and that it doesn't have a blue tint to it either. I guess I'll just stick to LoT comparison.
If it is a loading issue, it is probably cause the texture is streaming from disc. Try installing the entire game and see if the issue is still there. However, the more frequent texture pop-in on the PS3 is quite blatant in the video below. It also shows blurry PS3 version in the pics. Verify it yourself: http://www.gameblurb.net/fe... This jives well with Xbox 360 having the ability to store more texture in RAM so less pop-ins. As you said though, we will have to wait for Digital Foundry or LoT comparison.
@gamingdroid so you bring the article that says: "Pop -ins are bad on both consoles, though it appears to take longer to load textures on the Xbox360." but some how you still think xbox360 has the better version ??? why so desperate ?? any way both version are nothing to brag about and with all the 8s and 7s this games fails big time
As I said, it loads slower because the texture is loaded from DVD disc. If it loaded from HD, what do you think will happen? It will be on par with the PS3 and less pop-ins. Metacritic has this game at 82 based on 46 reviews. A very respectable score! I think you are just upset because your favorite console didn't happen to be better on your platform of choice... not my fault so don't hate on me. :D
@gamingdroid lol ...i'm upest ???XD i have always said that both will look the same and i was right H2H for rage from lens of truth : they look the same in every pic http://www.lensoftruth.com/... "Rollover to see the Difference. Notice the Textures look almost identical " and from this article : ""Pop -ins are bad on both consoles, though it appears to take longer to load textures on the Xbox360." " i know you feel sad you want xbox win so feel free to think what ever you like this game have nothing in the gfx to brag about anyway
Screenshots doesn't show popins.... As I said, was the "slower" loading of textures from disc? If so, it is obvious. Just install the game, problem solved.
Sure, the game looks the same in stills, but watch the megatextures streaming comparison video. PS3 lags behind: http://www.gameblurb.net/fe...
PC is going to be the only way to play a game from the makers of Doom and Quake. Does look nice on the 360 though...
pc version doesnt have any video options lol its a console port, texture popping every few seconds.
Serious? You cant tweak your PC. How wonderful too take away what pc gamers fundamentally do. They tweak it to the best graphical setting and try to dial it in too that close marker being fps to appearance. LOL screw that I want to push my system to the max, I don't need some predefined graphical test to tell me what settings it thinks are best for me. I'm sure someone will make an advanced graphics option like the one for crysis 2 but I will hold my breathe
... With joy
lol - I was only jesting anyway. I actually think it doesn't matter about graphics, you'll play on whichever console you personally prefer. Well, that's what I do anyway.
Got the 360 version pre-ordered and I can't wait to play it!
Both versions, besides pc have jaggies. I don't see your point?
wow rage john cormack has over hyped his engine and he has really really embarrassed him self. PC fanboys call when u get more games like killzone and uncharted gears of war GT5 and halo, Forza 4 You are becoming worst than the console war. I have a gaming rig and i still love the consoles more. Due to better games.
How old are you?
11 maybe 12? He can't be much older than that with the kind of nonsense he post day in and day out. If he's any older then that I’m embarrassed for him.
TROLLS DoNT AGE!!! Run!
Trolling as the norm THC CELL?
That name is auto troll.
PC for me, console versions are really starting to look long in the tooth.
The PC version looks fantastic. There are a few low res textures here and there but over all the Rage is the most unique looking game to date. Unlike other games out there it looks like one continuous canvas instead of a collection of texture maps.
i love how the console versions look perfectly fine i mean seriously why do you guys love to delude yourselfs
I agree, it looks good. Yet all these fanboys (console & PC alike) are extra exaggerate about it. Pathetic!
best looking game on xbox360 and ps3 at the moment a 10 on 10 in graphics according to ign Lets see......
Looks turd to me
actually the 360 Screenshots are the ps3 version of the game and vice versa cheap trick NowGamer CHEAP TRICK! @ CGI-Quality simply cuz i saw Lens of Truth comparison, the game looks bit sharper and darker with better draw distance on 360... more proof, see this: http://www.gameblurb.net/fe... NowGamer=bunch of trolls!
How exactly can you prove that? I had that suspicion too (after seeing Lens of Truth's screenshot comparison), but I don't know for sure. According to these screens, the PS3 version has stronger contrast and a sharper image in certain pics, but with a bit more jaggies. This is where DigitalFoundry will make their biggest impact for me!
"According to these screens, the PS3 version has stronger contrast and a sharper image in certain pics" i can see some pics=360 version sharper too um...maybe textures pop in still not end in that pics
lens of truths comparison made the two games look identical so...I think I'll take their word over nowgamer.
Well. Here ps3 version looks more sharper. Maybe SRGB/SWHITE turns on. Identical. About gamma on ps3 and xbox 360 - http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... (In fact, a signal on ps3's hdmi goes directly, while 360-signal a lot of times processed and re-encoded.)
And besides, I watched a guy play the game on PS3. And they don't even have jaggies like that. Not even close, So these are most likely PC screen shots that have the graphic settings on low with AA off.
Lots of jaggies, in both versions, surprising.
These articles are useless we are all playing the same game at the end of the day........
Screenshots of this game really don't do it justice.
both look good to me.
wow 360 looks terrible compared to the ps3 version... 360 is so cloudy.
Are you being sarcastic? There doesn't seem to be any clouds in the PS3 version except for the sky areas. The 360 seems to have smoke and clouds throughout the landscape... an extra effect, not a bad point. Although the gamma makes little difference I think I prefer the sheen from the PS3 version but I will get the Xbox version so my little bro can play it after me. Kudos to ID, looks great and a big contender for Epics Unreal crown.
who the f cares about some small jaggies, since this gen started multiplatform games have been getting more and more identical on both versions, smh at fanboys.
Having seen both in motion now...got to say the 360 version looked markedly better in texture quality and pop in.
who cares about this carmack shit game anyway, Nba 2K12 and Dark Souls is killing it
You know your bored when your looking at comparisons
I have it for PS3 and the game is jaw dropping gorgeous. Some pop in here and there, but the visuals are so incredible I can accept it. It plays amazing as well.
Lol, the textures are better on the 360 by a little. Not much tho. I know I'll get bashed by this, but if you disagree, you're pretty blind. Look at the pic with the four wheeler and look at the ground. Much better textures on the 360 version. Edit: Be easier to do this. PS3- http://www.nowgamer.com/sit... 360- http://www.nowgamer.com/sit...
Yeah the 360 version looks way better in that picture.
