The PS3 wins a cross platform comparison

40 second read


Unless I am mistaken this is a first.

A title that has been released on the 360 and PS3 at the same time is looking far better on the PS3 than the 360 and its coming from the site I count as one of the most reputable, Eurogamer.net

In their review for 1942: Joint Strike they warn the 360 users that the 360 version suffers from noticeable slowdown while the PS3 is silky smooth…

So the next time someone asks you which title looks better on the PS3 compared to the 360 you can point them to this one.

Oh the game actually sounds pretty good as well and got a decent 7/10 from Eurogamer.

    You are mistaken. Oblivion, GTA 4, CoD4 and Burnout Paradise are some of the games that look and perform better on PS3.

    Oblivion was not released at the same time.

    COD4, GTA4 and Burnout Paradise were rumourd to be better until they were released and then they were either identical or the 360 won.

    I disagree. Having played the full BP demo on the 360 and the game on the PS3, the PS3 version doesn’t suffer from the screen tearing on the 360 version. It’s clearly better.

    “Certainly, early reports of screen tear and frame-drops on the 360 version are way off-beam”

    Eurogamer’s technical comparison came to the decision that they were as identical as you could get really.

    Let’s face it…we can count the amount of games that look better on the PS3 on a single hand, so the 360 clearly is the winner by far.

    Eurogamer is wrong on this one, which is why I don’t trust its comparisons. I’ve seen it myself. The screen tearing isn’t gamebreaking but it’s definitely there.

    Remember you are comparing a demo to a retail version.

    I have not seen any reason to distrust Eurogamer yet.

    I can’t take all the credit, I must admit.

    Some people put too much trust in one website and their article writers opinions… 😉

    Well, I have a 360. I don’t have a PS3. So whether a game performs better on the PS3 or not, I know which one I’ll be playing and that’s all I really focus on. 🙂

    lol, I don’t only trust Eurogamer. I just find them to have the best methods of comparison. All the main sites have so far come to the same conclusion when it comes to comparisons.

    1-up and several others mention screen-tearing in the 360 version in their reviews – it’s there. The consensus is that there is no change between the demo and the retail versions.
