Darksiders – Xbox 360 vs PS3 Comparison

1 min read


It’s time for the first graphical head to head of 2010 and with the PS3 generally losing the cross platform comparisons it will be interesting to see if it can start 2010 off with a bang.

First up it is worth mentioning that the guys at Lens of Truth were hard pressed to find any graphical difference between the two games with one of them even going so far as to go back and confirm that he didn’t have two screenshots from the same game.

Also there are no load screens in Darksiders with all loading happening behind the scenes during logical cut scenes and mini loading occurring on the fly, pretty much in all respects this game is a testament to how you should make cross platform games.

However there was one difference which helped to choose a winner and this was in the performance category where the Xbox 360 version had far more noticeable screen tearing as well as the odd hiccup here and there which affected gameplay.


So in the first cross platform comparison of 2010 the PS3 takes the rewards.

On a side note the Xbox 360 version of Darksiders is now available locally after a stuttering start where the PS3 version initially only managed to make it to the retailers. Must have been an omen.

    If Darksiders is an indication of how 2010 is going to be then we are in for some really great games regardless of what platform you are on. Simply excellent. 🙂

    sweet ill get this for PS3 then. Strangely, im leaning more towards the Ps3 these days then the 360. Lets hope more multiplat releases have the same advantages as the 360 🙂

    It’ll suck if we get a few other Ghost Busters results in the future

    There’s a patch in the works if not already out to adress the screen tearing in the Xbox version.

    360’s are so much better than ps3s and pcs. the game line is incredibly ownage and they have the best online support ever. pcs are just stupid. you have to constanly upgrade just to play them. ps3s are nice and i like them although the game line up isn’t that great. online support is good to but to me 360’s dominates all systems and don’t get me started on the fag wii…..
