Which console version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 looks better: PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360? Check out the huge interactive slider graphics comparison.
Please anyone looking for graphics wont be looking at this game.
Tell that to the people with no ego
Yeah, I think Call of Duty is the last game people care about having the "edge" in. This would be like comparing graphics for "The Sims" or "Roller Coaster Tycoon". I just had a discussion with my cousin recently (me not a MW fan, and he being a fan), and he made it perfectly clear that he'd rather them put their time into the gameplay than into the engine. That makes some sense. Some.
***he made it perfectly clear that he'd rather them put their time into the gameplay than into the engine.*** Sh!tty gameplay with beatiful graphics doesn't earn a buy from me, but great gameplay with sh!tty graphics likely will. Time and time again, I go back and play old games and it ain't graphics that keep me playing.
I agree with you. For games in a genre I don't necessarily care for (like FPS), I won't buy unless they offer something groundbreaking in the tech department. It's the only reason I picked up Rage and BF3, and I didn't finish either of them because that style of gameplay (FPS) doesn't interest me. I know I'm in the minority on that, though, and that's why I think companies like Activision focus more on what the majority is looking for...which is just more CoD, or more Halo, or more...whatever.
I have to agree with the gameplay over graphics argument. I just finished Metroid: Prime, nearly a decade old game, and had a blast. I really have a strong dislike for this generation's hyper-focus on tech and graphics. What happened to being excited about how the things play rather than how they sound and look? As far as I am concerned, if an engine makes a game look eyes-bleedingly beautiful but doesn't bring anything new to the table in terms of gameplay, they do not have my interest. Disclaimer: I am a sucker for a nice art style though (e.g. El Shaddai, The Wind Waker, Deus Ex).
I'd say it's a perfectly clear assumption that Call of Duty isn't getting a graphics makeover until the next generation of consoles (PS4 & Xbox whatever). It's pretty obvious that people don't mind CoD's graphics, even though I'd love to see them look a little better. They've all looked pretty well the same since Call of Duty 4: MW1.
I switched over to Ps3 as my primary console and bought Black ops. The first thing I noticed is that Black ops looked a bit blurry compared to the 360 version. These pictures show the same thing. Doesn't matter because it still played the way it was suppose to and I will be getting MW 3 on Ps3 as well. I still like the 360 and have mine, but I just can't see myself paying for XBL when there is so much cool sh*t going on with Ps3 right now!
I'm here because I'm a sucker for interactive sliders. This could have contained pictures of corn cobs at various angles and I would have clicked. Corn cobs. Various angles. Interactive sliders.
thats true with CoD all people look for is fun and the fun on both consoles is on par.
YES I agree. It was really fun when the PS3 and PC was bugged to hell to the point of being broken.
a valid and very stong point well said Bubble up
Where is all of this COD love coming from all of a sudden? Oh, BF3 is already released and most are ready to jump back to COD. Lol, just a month ago it was nearly impossible to read a positive COD comment on N4G.
They wanted to put more time into gameplay then graphics?to those who are blinded by the dollar signs that activation flashes before you tells me that you are either stupid or just afraid to play other real fps games.It's the same gameplay with nothing new in 7 years with the same old crapy engine with the same old school girls screaming into there mics that tells me that you really need to play other games to understand how bad COD really is.The fact that this site has to show us how bad the game looks is just sad to the gaming world.
What are you talking about? People have fun playing COD, I enjoy cause I can pick up play some team death match for 20 min or so and leave if I have to. Saying that nothing has change in 7 years is also non sense! True graphics haven't really changed but it is still fun. Don't be bitter bud. Oh and what's a "real" FPS game? Please which games are those? lol
@ snipes101 The obsession with graphics is age-old.Earlier it was "bits",now the obsession is with the game engine.Gameplay trumps all,but average graphics over poor ones also make an experiance imo.
Why are they doing a graphical comparison for the first Modern Warfare? Oh wait did not see the 3, this must be alpha footage... Wait, what it's releasing in a few days?
I loled so hard. Don't see the point in graphics comparisons for the COD games. They might as well do graphic comparisons for COD4 and MW3 to really see that it's just a new map pack.
i really dont wanna bash cod mw3 since i actually loved the games, but seriously ? this looks AGED. i had higher hopes for this game graphically. Gameplay will be as good as ever, but come on this is fugly EDIT:: ok watched the section in a video again, it does look better then the stills. but still its not that much different to the last incarnations.
Haha yea, i dont even see why we are having graphics comparison for this game. Its old the same, All CODs since COD MW1 have been about the same on both the consoles, with PC having a slight advantage. Really no need of a comparison, the COD buyer already knows its going to be the same experience on both the consoles atleast in terms of graphics.
Well it's the modern day version of quake on the old quake engine. Expect another engine release.
Let the COD bashing commence!
It's not even fun anymore. Like shooting fish in a barrel.
Even if one piece of s*** looks better than the other, it's still a piece of s***.
Um. The lighting looks odd for ps3 on the first shot and for the Xbox on the second... Dated graphics.
360 beats PS3 here, but M$ spoke $$$$'s again, so......
Pretty much the only difference is color balance/brightness...Easily remedied in your tv options..
nah 360 does look better in these pics. i looked at both for about a minute and the one on the right looks better ... coming from a ps3 owner. but ... its only cod so the graphics arent amazing anyway
Ok...but the point is that you had to look at them for a MINUTE to notice the difference! That effectively means that there isn't a difference. The 360 textures are EEVVVERRR so slightly sharper..but when the game is running, you're never going to notice that. These graphics wars are getting so petty it's insane...
Looks like crap on both.
I watched it over several times and ps3 has slightly better graphs. Barely, but there is a better version. Sorry fanboys.
Xbox 360 actually looks better in this game. PS3 looks more detailed close up, but environments and lighting are better on the Xbox. Strange, cause with most games its the other way around.
That's until you notice all the missing dust effects from the 360 version, and PS3 has a little bit more natural lighting too.
360 version is better... 360 http://www.pcgames.de/Call-... ps3 http://www.pcgames.de/Call-... 360 http://www.pcgames.de/Call-... ps3 http://www.pcgames.de/Call-...
Lets be honest, they both look dildos. This is not a game you play for graphics. Get the version your friends have.
Just because it looks slightly better doesn't mean it's better.It's the exact same game and plays the exact same way on both systems.
strange, on some scenes the ps3 simes to have better lighing and in others its the other way around, however when it comes to a cod game i really dont care about the graphics (expect black ops, what they did with the resolution for the ps3 is unforgivable) but more about the performance, as usual in previews cod titles (expect black ops) the xbox version manege to have a better frame rate, while it may be a slight 10 frames ahead of ps3 in most times (not always tho) its an advantage, in the price pics of the ps3 version it seems to be blurred but it could be the gamma (which is adjustable, thank god). but i rather wait for Lens of truths' head2head.....
Correct me if I am wrong. But they said they didn't need a new engine right? Because this game looks dated as heck. XperiaRay
Yep, same engine as MW2.
Which is the same engine as MW1.
Which is essentially the same engine as Quake III
Oh my god, you guys are sounding like such retards...most engines these days are enhanced versions of really old games, worked over so much that there is almost no old code anymore, just like MW3.
so show me sum evidence of how Battlefield 3 looks exactly like Bad Company 1. Since its just an enhanced version of the original frostbite engine. Face it, Activision hasn't done any major changes in their COD 4 engine in over 5 years...
same engine as minecraft
Its all about the game engine really. If the game engine is running crap on console X, then all the games developed on it will be running crap. Licensee Developers can't automagically fix game engines.
256mb RAM on PC - that's including other PC processes such as as Anti-Viruses and Firewalls.... of course it won't blow you away.
that looks like crap.
If you want to see a real disappointment compare MW3 on the PC to other current multiplat games. F-U-G-L-Y!!!
Both of them look like shit
This game looks dated and awful on both consoles ! Really,it's a shame to see these outdated graphics in 2011 ! Seriously,MW1 was great but with MW3,where's the evolution on gameplay and graphics quality ? Common guyz,it sucks !
I wouldn't expect much more from the PC version either. COD has been a console port for a few iterations now. I think BF3 being optimized for PC has benifited both consoles!
The shot inside the copter looks A LOT better on the PS3.....
Both looks like diarrhea
360 commands a slight advantage. But there's nothing mind blowing here anyways. Screens for this game don't do it justice though. The best effect in MW games is the 60hz framerate. It won't look as fugly when you see it in motion.
Playstation 2 visuals. Nice.
Ps3 is better i think from wat i saw xbox lighting isnt that great
Possibly. I forgot that MW2 was actually pretty good on PS3. So MW3 should be as well. I keep getting confused with how awful Blops was on PS3. I remember being all hyped for Blops, drove home, popped it in. Anger.
I think I may have found the reason why I started enjoying COD. It's just so easy to hop on and have some quick games. There is always time for some COD before work. I can't really squeeze games in like I can with COD.
Really? This is what we get from the franchise leading the industry!? I would expect more than what looks like the first Modern Warfare. Why haven't they updated the HUD or green Text-Font? (could they really be going for nostalgia?) I always have to watch how much I say about graphics, because to me it's the most important thing. While majority of gamer stick with gameplay, I find that I can enjoy a bad game that looks good, and get bored of a good game that looks bad. Gameplay is opinionated; one can like it, hate it, or get tired it, (it all depends) but with graphics our eyes know what's good. It's like a nice coat of paint over everything that everyone always notices when playing. Sadly COD, despite being on top, has abandoned this sensation.
This is exactly why I regret building a monster pc. Being able to run everything maxed and then going back to play console games makes everything look like crap. If I never built a gaming rig then I might still enjoy console gaming 100%. I think the reason why we feel that way about graphics is because we can compare them and see they are clearly outdated. There is absolutely no excuse why these graphics aren't the best on console when they have as much money as they do.
All the COD games have looked better on the 360 than PS3, Higher texture detail and better lighting.
They both look terrible. Looks incredibly dated.
they propably use same old engine 4 new console generation too =)
I wish I could erase COD MW2 from my list of games. It's like a dirty smudge on my trophy list that I can't wipe away no matter how much I wish I could. Edit: I tried to warn my nephew that COD would enslave him. Now he's sunk in even further because of BLOPS. My only regret is he cannot be cleansed by UC3 because he only has a 360.: END rant lol
The 360 has the better lighting effects. I love my PS3 to bits, but I'll be picking up CoD for my 360 because that's where my friends are.
Respectable comment. I'll be picking up MW3 for my PS3 cause well I only have a PS3.. or two :) but if I had a 360 I'd probably get it for the 360.
With the Modern Warfare games, you're pretty much guaranteed to get a decent port so it's best to choose the version that you're most likely going to have more friends on. Honestly, I wish my friends all had PS3s because I don't like paying for Live when I only use my 360 for 1 game.
so this is how the wii version will look as well
