3D games on the PS3 are graphically inferior

1 min read


Inferior, I love that word. It gets the hair standing up on the loyal fanboys back and is at the same time perfectly accurate.

But back to the point, much has been said about the PS3’s ability to render 3D games and this has already been proven when they took the 1080p HD title WipeOut and successfully rendered it in 3D.

The only problem being that the 3D rendering takes it toll to the tune of a couple hundred pixels dropping WipeOut down to a 720p title… which in all honesty is still all you need for a 42” TV no matter what anyone tells you.

The other 3D title that has received the treatment is MotorStorm which has dropped from a perfect 720p to sub-HD… and is now reliant on the PS3’s up scaling algorithm.

Not being a major graphics person this really makes no difference to me and lets not forget that this is just the beginning of the 3D revolution, things can only get better.

Or fade away into obscurity for another 40 years.

      The Xbox 360 doesn’t support 3D unless run with one of those tv’s that convert normal video to 3D video.

      So far we haven’t seen any 3D games coming out for the 360 so we can’t compare yet.

      I would expect the same, if not more, performance degredation when and if it does ever happen.

        Im sure i read some where that the 360 isnt strong enough to re render games in 3D the GPU or CPU just cant handle it

    Scrap metal on XBLA can render in 3d. Not sure what it would look like on a 3d tv.

    with natal sucking up 15% of cpu , dont think 3d is a option on 360 , unless you want a ps2 that does 3d and has natal ?
    make sense?

    Those games were converted to 3D. Games that are developed with 3D in mind won’t suffer much degradation. The difference will be like Avatar and Clash of the Titans.
