View Full Version : Best Platform?

I don't think I've seen a thread regarding this particular issue, but I wanted to know which platform would be better to buy the game on, graphics-wise. PS3 or Xbox360?

Please note, I'm interested in opinions only on these two platforms because they're all I play on.

Also, if this topic has been discussed previously, apologies.

I've heard that the PS3 has slightly better graphics (I only own a 360), but from everything I've seen, they look pretty much the same.

It doesn't really matter since they're the same. Either is fine.

Hmm..well, ever since I playing Iron Man and Assassin's Creed on both Xbox360 and PS3, and finding out that the PS3 version had vastly inferior graphics on both games, I've been concerned about the quality of cross-platform games.

GTA4 was solid on both platforms, but given how much money they spent on development, that was only to be expected.

Well, hopefully the 360 demo that's coming out this month should placate me.

Depends, really. If the 360 got anything coming as downloadable content that the PS3 doesn't, then perhaps it's best choice. However, as a matter of controller, I find Sixaxis to be better and much more comfortable.

I have seen some of the Comparsion videos, which compare the graphics between the Xbox and PS3, the difference however is so insignificant that it can barely be seen by the naked eye.

So, from my perspective, they're both equally good platforms and i can't wait to get my hands on the game. :)

Dude the graphics are the same. You would have to be a droid like PROXY to see the difference it is soooo small.

Yeah you should not be able to tell the difference between PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

The thing about PS3 for multiplatform games is that it requires more work to make it run as smooth as on 360.
PS3 development is, without a doubt, harder than 360 development. Blame the Cell CPU for that one xP

Assassin's Creed just has a lower framerate and this annoying filter that all PS3 games seem to have. It's not like someone increased the brightness on the monitor, but it looks brither in a different way. Not certain what it is, but it makes everything look worse imo xD


Anyway, I'm going for the 360 version. If you want something to help you decide between the two, I say Rumble and superior trigger buttons for 360 xD
(Unless you have a dualshock 3, in which case the 360 only wins for having better trigger buttons xD)

I have have played both many times and in my opinion they both have the same graphics capabilities, BUT the 360 runs a bit smoother at times and I'm very happy with the one I own.

How so? I don't own a PS3, but Sony's first two consoles have been kind to me.

The 360 version will probably sell better, but only because more people have it than the PS3 because of it's age and price. I, personally, am much more comfortable with the 360 controller over the PS3 controller. Not to mention 360 has achievements.

The only major difference between the two versions, I'd think, would be achievements for the 360. If you want to know what they are, click here. (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/star-wars-the-force-unleashed/achievements/)

That would be correct. All the sites that list features for each console have been the same for both the 360 and PS3, from what I've read.

LOL I love all the fanboy bickering :D. I own both consoles and I much prefer the PS3. It's just preference, I mainly only play 360 for online with friends and now I don't even do that as much. I kinda wish I didn't get to the 360, I have used songs platform since it came out and haven't had an issue ever where as my X360 had the RROD twice. I just like the smooth Sony controls and easy network store and stuff. I'm sure the game will be identical on both consoles it's just a preference on controllers. Just mah 2 cents

All right, this is probably a signal that we should get back on topic.

For those unaware what that was:

I wanted to know which platform would be better to buy the game on, graphics-wise. PS3 or Xbox360?

I can't speak out of experience for both, as I don't own a PS3, but the graphics look overall the same in most aspects. Again, I've heard that the PS3 has a slight advantage due to whatever is jammed in there, but it's nothing that will blow your mind compared to the 360.

Let's try to stick to that topic only, please.

considering i think both consoles are good in their own ways, i'm not a fanboy, i own both and i like both for different reasons, as for the sales, ps3 has outsold 360 in the first 18 month timeframe by alot, its only in total 360 still leads because they started way before sony, i don't see any difference between either console on this, i just find it funny how everyone starts moaning bout the ps3 as opposed to actually giving the guy their experience of the game on either console, :xp: ya fanboys need to grow up lol,

You're last post sure alluded to you being a fanboy. If you do not feel yourself one, perhaps you should make sure your posts don't sound like fanboy drivel.

Also, punctuation and capitalization are your dear friends. Please take advantage of them as it's proving hard for others to read your posts.

I've gone through four Playstations and two Playstation 2s due to them breaking, and being a hardcore collector, I can honestly say I take care of my consoles very well. I've heard lots of complaints about Xboxes, but I'd sure as hell get a 360 before a PS3 after my previous experiences with Sony.

The thing about PS3 for multiplatform games is that it requires more work to make it run as smooth as on 360.
PS3 development is, without a doubt, harder than 360 development. Blame the Cell CPU for that one xPThat's not what the people making the Ghostbusters video game are saying.

I have to agree with Da_Man here... The reason they put the additional 5 levels and duel mode on the Wii is because the Wii system couldn't support DMM or Euphoria. So they decided to make up for it by giving it additional levels and the duel mode.

I'm sure they also did this from another stand point of wanting people to go out and buy the game on more than one console :D

I have a question for those who have both 360/PS3 (as I do)...

I noticed that in the cut scene at the beginning of the demo that on the 360, around when Vader ignites his lightsaber, there is a hiccup. The audio and video pause and jump. On the PS3 this doesn't happen. Anyone else notice this? Makes me wonder if the PS3 might be better for this one.

You're gonna base your entire purchase on one cinematic hiccup? Wow. Not to mention the fact that I haven't noticed it (I own a 360), we haven't even seen the other cinematic movies. Maybe your 360 is broken.

I did not notice that on the Xbox version of the demo. I don't really think that's anything to make your purchasing decision based on. Really it should be which controller you prefer and whether you care about having achievements or not, those are the only differences between the two.

LucasArts Senior PR Manager Adam Kahn has confirmed that the upcoming PlayStation 3 version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will not include trophy support.

Speaking with Talk PlayStation, Kahn stated, The Force Unleashed does not support the trophy system on PS3. I can’t speculate about what might happen in the future, though."

While this confirms that the game will not support trophies upon its release, there is still a possibility that a patch may be released to incorporate this feature at some point in the future.

I don't think I implied that my entire decision was based on this hiccup - but it makes me wonder (since other people have indeed experienced it) what the final product will be like. I like a smooth experience. I'm not an achievement whore - but I do like the 360 controller quite a bit more than the dual-shock. For this sort of thing I usually wait for the reviews - they usually mention the difference (if any) between platforms. Sometimes there is a performance difference or graphic difference (though the graphic differences tend to be smaller).

They can always release patches to fix stuff. Your "smooth experience" should be based on how smooth the actual gameplay is, not one hiccup in a cutscene. You haven't even seen the other ones, so you don't know if they'll have the same problems. You should still base it off gameplay, I think.
