Eurogamer's Xbox 360 vs. PS3 Face-Off: Round Seven

After a joyous yuletide spent playing Naughty Dog's supreme Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, it's back to the frontlines of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 console war for this reporter, with the latest battery of cross-platform confrontations. You know the score by now: impartial criticism on each multi-format release is the name of the game, the aim being to supplement the original Eurogamer reviews with additional commentary relevant to each version of the game, with gameplay the primary concern.

Eurogamer compares the following games:
- Kane and Lynch: Dead Men
- TimeShift
- Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
- Tony Hawk's Proving Ground
- Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
- Blazing Angels: Secret Missions of WWII
- Medal of Honor: Airborne
- Dynasty Warriors: Gundam
- Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War
- Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
- Clive Barker's Jericho
- John Woo Presents Stranglehold

"impartial criticism on each multi-format release is the name of the game, the aim being to supplement the original Eurogamer reviews with additional commentary relevant to each version of the game, with gameplay the primary concern."

really? i thought the primary concern was to get fanboys riled up to get more hits and attention.

Yeah, it must be a slow day for their website or something.

He constantly bashes the PS3, saying "But if I had to make a choice it would be the 360 version, if only for the gamerscore challenges and the fact that the excellent graphics aren't diminished by the needless Vaseline effect." But looking at pics like these ones makes me wonder the objectivity of his comments because to me the 360 pics are the ones that look "out of focus"...

yeah, i thought the same way. he talks about no AA, bla bla bla. but when you look at the picks they proove him wrong. lol, what a fanboy.

cod4 does this in a really awesome way, it blurs everything around your target when u manually aim. its a cool touch but im not sure if thats what theyre doing in those screenshots. the ps3 ones do look more clear.

I thought that, too, in the first place (and it might well, be true, but then, even the PS3 version has depth of field - just a little bit more in the distance). However, then look at the second (Graw2) shot, and you see way more details on the rocks in the background. And look at the volume of the dust below the helicopter. Just to point out some details.

Same for K&L. He complains about the AA (or actually no AA) in the PS3 version, then click on the shot and if there wouldn't be a "360" or "PS3" text printed on the image, you would have a hard time to distinguish which is which. - And both have AA.

So, well, I agree. Either this guys is just biased or he is intentionally lying. W/e. I think he disqualifies himself and the whole site is pretty pointless. This whole "lets do a comparison story" gets really old. We had that over and over again. And it only leads to threads where the green side argues with the black side forever. Useless. (I don't even know why I even read these threads, still).

@4 & 4.1

What is wrong with you two? This just *repeats* everything we've heard of cross platform games.

This isnt "fanboy" bias -- it is confirmed over and over and over and over by every site. THAT is why when you goto METACRITIC, you'll find that Xbox 360 versions rate higher than PS3 versions of cross-platform games.

You people *CANT* be for real.

Have a look at this GRAW2 shot attached look at the doors (whats up with the 360 version) now in this article it says the screen shots are captured from the HDMI port well these pics look sharp so if the reviewer says he gets soft focus his TV must be a right piece of sh!t my PS3 looks sharp on my Hitachi Plasma!!!

i own both, the 360 and a PS3, i have a new 46" 1080p 120Hz Samsung, and i have no problems with my PS3 games looking washed out...i think the media is trying to make a big thing out of nothing...i am a Sony fan, but i also enjoy some games in my 360 and i agree that when the PS3 first came out the multiplat games looked awful, but the latest games like, NBA 2k8, Kane n Lynch, Assassins Creed, CoD 4, Orange Box, Burnout Paradise etc etc i cant tell the difference whatsoever, i like the PS3 controller better and thats why im backing the PS3 more :)
