Despite the low resolution, the 360 version looks very clean and smooth. It certainly doesn't have the blocky, low resolution appearance of something like Haze, for instance.

I'm really surprised at how different the various ports of this game turned out. They all seem solid, but they each have their own quirks. The object motion blur in the 360 version is really slick and it is disappointing that it did not appear in the other versions.

My god did you even read the thread dark? recheck the comment on PS3 not having motion blur. Did you totally ignore the cleaner look of 720p?
 
These are some wonderful threads and all of them are very important for this one! Did you already checked my Xbox Live Account? You really should!

Seems that way.

Stop quoting comario, for those of us ignoring his posts, it defeats the purpose...

dude STFU already sheesh


My god lol. You and your bud still concerned? Okay what does his post prove? The PS3 cannot do shadows? The basement has to be locked if this tickles your fancy so much.
Why don't you put me on your ignore list and then you can troll in peace.
You know i saw your stfu comment to him right after i posted, lol. Calm down man, nothing personal. It wasn't what his post proved or not. My point was simply pointing out that your wording made you look stupid because all of the links were not of prince of persia. It wasn't even two links to the same game, it was four links, four different games. A simple, "oh, i just meant the first link" would have been enough really. But you were either proudly ignorant and didn't care about the other links or were just trying to cover your tracks by saying that you 'only' needed to see the first link to invalidate the rest. Either way, saying go mind your own business or go away doesn't do much either.

I don't think i have anyone on the ignore list, again, don't take it personally.
 
this thread has some of the dumbest posts i've seen in a while, jesus

i thought nobody gave a damn about TRU. I was fucking WRONG, apparently

Indeed, it's not really important...

For the record - over 50% of those where to respond to personal attack from people 'ignoring me'- forgive my weakness - I shall move on to greener pastures... you saints continue your unbiased discussion on 'which version is better'

I've made a name for myself with Sony defense? I'm on an ignore list?
Only one way to address that...

wow.


note the lowercase - I think I did it right


EDIT: Resume ignoring...
Holy crap aren't there any mods in this forum? How can a 12 year old shit up an entire thread?

No you were right but this thread isn't about the game anymore, it is about console warriors. The game was merely a catalyst to all this.

This thread has changed......its no longer about resolution, AA, or lighting........etc

Sometimes I wish GAF implemented some of the vbulletin options I have seen elsewhere like post and author ranking up/down and self notes. And also a reporting button.

Heh. Is that a subtle MGS4 poke or am I deceived?

I HATE COMPARISON THREADS *posts 15 times* Like 4% of posters in this thread posted in the TRU thread. There were more posters in the "exclusive demo/dlc" thread bragging and bitching. suck a teet, teet suckers.

why do you need a button? just PM a mod.

My post isn't about you, it's about how the mods let a kid ruin a thread. I won't fall into the same trap others did and start a silly insults marathon with you.

Good for you - seriously. I was minding my own Gaffin' business when I was personally challenged - I did not handle it well. Took the low road - the end.

Which single kid ruined the thread? from my standing it had a pretty consistent "joke thread" theme.

When it comes to a shitty console war, every multiplat game gets thrown in, just for shits and giggles.
 
Why would anyone ask to get themselves removed? That just seems ridiculous.......You could just leave the thread, or stop arguing with people who are never going to agree with you no matter what you say.

I actually never argued a real point - I just pissed around the fire, threw some logs on - and then was told I was a bitch - this of course required a bit of level-headed retaliation from me on a personal level... it was never about the game ;)

Goodday

I can't believe that you're actually trying to defend him. Go read the thread from page 4 to see which is the kid I'm talking about.

wow this is a bit sad

It is IMPOSSIBLE for them to be equal across platforms, the fact they are so close should be enough for you.

Sometimes it leans one way, sometimes it leans another. Get over it, who cares, rarely does it even effect gameplay anymore.




:lol What are you 12?
ah, gotcha.

What are you doing man this thread is completely serious. No jokes.
 
Not only is Microsoft trying to reduce the price of their game console lower than the wii, now they are trying to downgrade the resoulution of their games lower than the wii as well.

Er, you do know that PS3 has games at such resoulutions?

Uh, him PM'ing a mod to remove himself I think was just his stupid humor.

And yes that insult was designed to get you back in the game commariodore64.

GTA IV on PS3 had Pop In, not sure what world you're living on if you think it didn't.
I think he means that ground texture slow load "pop in" under your feet/wheels when driving. Both had distance popin...

Da fuck?

The PS3 version was handled by a relatively unknown dev.... you mean to tell me they did a better job than Crystal Dynamics at their own damn game?

Not enough lulz in the entire world. Tell this Nixxes to get cracking on their next PS3 project. They got skills.

And patch Underworld for trophies, yo.

Not to go off topic, but the shadows are present in both cases complete with self-shadowing. All that's seen on those shots is a minor difference with shadow-bias(which is one of the hacks all games use to reduce shadow bleeding and other associated shadowmap artifacts). Obviously different platform teams had different criterias for how much artifacting is ok under different scenarios.
It's not a coincidence that the differences are noticeable only on screens where shadows are very low-res and artifacted to hell to begin with (ie. cases where shadow resolution/precision is already stretched beyond its limits on both platforms).
