Xbox 360 vs PS3 : Gamespot Round 4

I actually groaned when I saw this headline coming up this morning, while I have always enjoyed Flamebait postings I am just to tired for this one today.

It’s the end of the year and I want to go to bed now… but It’s a biggie and thus cannot be ignored so onto the comparison.

Now the last couple of Eurogamer head to heads have gone the way of the Xbox 360, actually every single one has gone the way of the 360 but lets not get picky. The latest option of rabid PS3 fans has been simply to pull the fanboy card and build up the case for a conspiracy against the PS3.

No cookies for guessing who won this comparison

First up Fallout 3 and the 360 takes this one with better draw distance and textures.

Next up we get Soul Calibur IV and this time it’s a tie with the 360 version having more ‘stuff’ on the screen while the PS3 has better “anisotropic filtering” (say what?)

Then we get Dead Space where the 360 easily walks away with the title thanks to some bizarre banding on the PS3 version.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is up next and once again the 360 is the better version graphically thanks to higher detail textures and better lighting.

And then we have Call of Duty: World at War which Gamespot feels is a tie as the PS3 has better lighting contrast but the 360 once again has that anti-aliasing advantage.

Finally we get Mortal Kombat vs DC which is a clear winner for the 360 even though it really shouldn’t be pushing either box to hard.

Oh I nearly forgot Madden 09 which was a complete tie.

So that’s it, another cross platform comparison and another win for the 360. Now the thing that gets me about this is that people won’t believe it. Someone is going to call me or Gamespot an Xbot (why me when I am just reporting on it still bewilders me), the other option is that people are going to say cross platform games don’t matter and the PS3 is better purely because of Uncharted Drakes Fortune or MGS4.

I can understand people not caring as the differences are really minor and do not in anyway detract from the enjoyment of the game, but to refuse to admit it is odd.

Anyway that’s it, you can view the screenshots overlayed through the Gamespot link below and I recommend doing that and taking a look at the Call of Duty 5 screenshots as they seemed to think the PS3 version was equal to the 360 and from those screenshots I would personally disagree.
