Call of Duty 4 better on the PS3?

1 min read

Jonas Allen, from, has been reviewing the upcoming Call of Duty 4 from Infinity Ward. Now I have read enough of these reviews and seen enough demo’s to be 100% sure that Call of Duty 4 is going to bea a huge success.

The gameplay is awesome, the graphics are amazing and the intensity is unbelievable. However I have only ever seen it on the Xbox 360 and so can’t compare, yet, from personal experience. However according to Jonas the PS3 is going to be the better looking version 

Still, as strong as Call of Duty 4 is shaping up to be in the gameplay department, the most immediately impressive aspect is by far its graphics. The PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions all look surprisingly similar, but that’s not due to one platform being the lead; Infinity Ward personally assured us that development occurred simultaneously on all three platforms, and that there wasn’t a base system. With that said, the console similarities end when it comes to textures, lighting and resolutions, because those three areas make the PlayStation 3 version definitely excel over the Xbox 360 SKU.

If this is true, it is really going to be a feather in the PS3’s hat and would mark the first time a day and date release looked and played better on the PS3.

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

    Now if they could only enable cross-platform gaming on all three it would be heaven! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gameplay wise this game seems to be over anything in its department. I dont think even Crysis will better this!

  • chase

    it will never happen
    xboxlive you got 2 paid
    playstation network is free

  • abev

    So what difference doe that make chase, I would live some cross platform gaming ๐Ÿ™‚
    No I just pray the ps3 version doesnt let me down, Im holding thumbs for you baby ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • SlippyMadFrog

    If they want to do cross-platform gaming, Microsoft and Sony would actualy have to work together to achieve this and I don’t see enemies working together. The one would probably try to sabotage the other or something like that. Would still be cool though ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ruslan

    Or at least get more PC games to work. Pity the PC version of GoW wont have cross-platform like Shadowrun.

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    Well, I called this several weeks ago – the bit about the PS3 version looking better. Though this is the case, I’m gonna settle for the 360 version because, well, I have more ‘friends’ and get along better with those ‘friends’ than those on PSN – other than the cross-pollinators, of course ๐Ÿ™‚ .

    Can’t wait, though. 3 days before I finish exams so it’s just gonna sit there, sealed, waiting.

  • Ruslan

    I am going to download the PC demo this weekend hopefully since I missed the X360 Beta. Now is the PS3 version going to have peer or server based online matchmaking? Curious about that one.

  • abev

    Due date?? I need to start saving. Hope the ps3 version isnt delayed.

  • Ruslan

    CoD 4’s PS3 date seems solid, same as the others. 7-9 Nov for SA.

  • abev

    Too many tiles to buy ๐Ÿ™ Anyone know where I can whore myself for some cash?

  • @ Ruslan, hard call really. I estimate it will have a dedicated host like GoW.

    Pundits have made comparisons between versions of Activision and Infinity Ward’s upcoming Sony PlayStation 3, Windows PC, and Microsoft Xbox 360 video game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It was pointed out that CoD4: Modern Warfare looks no better on the Sony PS3 than it does on rival console Microsoft Xbox 360. This prompted IBM Cell Project architect Jim Kahle to react.

    Kahle said that the next-generation of gaming is taking on more than just pushing graphics to extremes. He indicated that artificial intelligence (AI) will be higher on the priority list than ever before. He said:

    I think we’ve got to get back to where is this edge of graphics going to be. I’m not sure that pushing the graphics all the way to the extreme edge is where people are going to go. It’s going to be the simulation part, the AI.

    Kahle adds that there are many characteristics going into games. “You haven’t seen the full power of the PlayStation [3] exploited yet,” he adds. “That’s what we worked on… we still have a ways to go.”

    IBM was the manufacturer tapped by Sony during the process of designing its high-end PS3 game console to design a processor that would be powerful enough to give the Sony PlayStation 3 a “future-proof” effect.

    The release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare by Activision and Infinity Ward, on the other hand, is among the most anticipated gaming events this year. It’s the first iteration in the Call of Duty franchise to take the setting out of World War II and into contemporary time frames. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare comes out for Microsoft Windows-based PCs as well.

  • ps3 will have slightly better graphics, but does it mean better gameplay?

  • shadowfax

    how do i get on a south african server for call of duty 4 right now im on an american server and it takes about 2 seconds for my bullet 2 ht them

  • LazySAGamer

    Call of Duty runs on a peer to peer network unless I am mistaken.

    The best way to find a local game is to get some local friends and join their games… or host your own.
    For the PS3 go to and ask who is playing and for the 360 go to

  • LazySAGamer

    or even better yet head on over to and create a game for people to join

  • Ben

    Yea that would be awsum… sept that ps3 and x-box ppl would get frkn owned by the pc ppl. think about it, whats easier to get more acurate with quicker, a mouse or a joy stick???
