Dead SpaceDark corners, slow player movement, intense music, and monsters with a propensity to crawl out of walls left us reaching for a pair of adult diapers while taking screenshots. Once again, the PC is the overall champ here. A high-end video card goes a long way when it comes to running a game at insanely high resolutions with detailed textures and superior antialiasing. Objects in the seating area and the sheets of paper in the middle of the room get blurrier and blurrier as you switch between the platforms. Even the text readout that's practically in front of your character's face looks better on the PC.
There is something wrong in this comparison, PC can run this game at 1080 but these pictures are all at the same resolution. There is no comparison between PC and consoles, PC is in other league and looks another game, just search youtube gameplays at 1080 and filtered to compare. (Not mention the mods that make the real sense of this kind of games).
Fallout 3 :
360 looks like it has much better lighting and a longer draw distance than PS3
problems with the console versions: look at the trees and see how they're pixelated particularly PS3, and the bushes look terrible (you can see the bottom of the grass bunches) and they don't blend in with the terrain on the right, in the first picture the rocks and bushes in front of one of the buildings aren't there on both consoles (render distance).
PS3 version looks awful... I was thinking of grabbing the PS3 version for the heck of it but I'll stick to the 360 The PS3 is failing to focus the resolution correctly resulting in muddy textures
@zeno99 There wouldn't be a difference if there were higher speced hardware for the slim versions. Specs make a difference in PC games because games are made to be scaleable, that is, they're programmed so that you can choose different graphics quality levels for different hardware. It takes effort to code that, and generally has to be redone for each platform you release a game for. So if there were different hardware in the old PS3 and the Slim, to take advantage of it, developers would have to add new code. Either that, or make games Slim exclusive, which would piss off Old PS3 owners.
The difference between PC and console games, is that console games use extreme amounts of contrast to cover up the sloppy graphics. If the game is bright it's easier to pick out details, and in console games, the details to be found are not very good.
the ps3 and xbox 360 are under powered. the slim versions should have been designed with higher speced hardware. how ever can a high end pc fix gta 4 slow game play and other problems like how slow niko moves,the brick on ice traction,slow vehicle acceleration,and crap weather changes. custom controller maping and saving the game away from a safe house should be possible on a pc. my hope is that gta 5 is next gen and that much more than the graphics are improved.
@ Ur_Daddy_711 That's a silly thing to say. You can get cracked 360 and Ps3 games too. Also to everyone else going on about pc being more expensive because you need a good graphics card. Check out the prices. £10 cheaper PC games usually are, buy ten games and you've already saved £100 that will buy you a pretty good gpu now. :)
I've only played this game on the PS3, but I can tell the 360 version is better. The colors are more vivd and the res looks sharper. I've never played the PC version of this game, but I've played the classic GTA's and the verdict is definitely out that Rockstar isn't very hard for the PC market. I don't blame them. Why put forth time and effort into a game that's just going to be cracked and made available on iPirate.com.
PC>Xbox360>PS3 for all the games featured in this comparision, GTA IV for PS3 is dark. GTA IV is best on Xbox 360 because you need at least a quad core processor and a 2 GB graphics card for PC, but then if you have a quad core you will get random crashes in Fallout 3 because it is not optimized for anything over 2 cores. Also PS3 started to look as good or better than Xbox 360 for 2007 games. But now Xbox 360 dominates the PS3. The main reason is because both consoles are graphics limited. And both have almost the same graphics power. The main reason why Xbox 360 is better is because more games are optimized for xbox 360 and then ported to PS3. If developers took time to optimize games for the PS3 it would look better than Xbox 360 an example is Oblivion IV which was relased first on xbox 360 then on PS3, where the PS3 version is a lot better. For PC you need at least a ~ \\$400 PC to play Fallout 3 on high and ~ \\$900 PC to play GTA IV. The equivalent graphics card for the PS3 and Xbox 360 is about a 7900 GTX
i had gta on xbox and the quality was amazing, i then bought a ps3 and got gta on that and the picture quality is terrible! I play 720p on a 19" LG monitor and the picture is amazing for all my other games like cod and killzone, but its all blurry and dark for gta!
@Mrgoldfish 1 aside from looks and some minor hardware changes (USB ports) the difference is non-existent ESPECIALLY NOT in GPU/CPU. Your statement is FALSE
I own a Playstation 3 Slim. I think PC has the best graphics but is that the original PS3 or the Slim. Because I think the Slim would have the best graphics.
Torrasque,Your a troll to even bring up Cell.First off if it's program right it makes the best looking console games around.Both the Ps3 and xbox are really old in pc terms they are like Dinosaurs.The thing is you can't buy a pc for 200-300 dollars that runs these games.Sony shoulda put 1gig of xdr ram in it and 512 vram this woulda made a world of good but since blu-ray was included that took up the budget.Cell acts as a second Gpu to a point.You can off load things the gpu does, on it.This is the reason Ps3 has the better looking games.It actualy makes the gpu better since it's frees it up for other tasks.Both consoles are very old i have no idea why you are killing em.For the money the Ps3 has more bang for the buck,the 360 has things people like as well.Thats how it works out.The cpu in the 360 is pure trash as well,fk if it wasn't for ati's gpu the 360 woulda been xbox 1.3.Cell is a better Cpu hands down.
I always play on PC, but PS3 and Xbox360 have a higher rendering speed. Who cares if the game looks better on PC if it is really slow to play.
why couldnt they just set the same brightness?Anyway,although i own a ps3 and an old pc i would say pc is way better than both ps3 and xbox.
in terms of this comparison the order of better graphics is PC>Xbox360>PS3... Normally it would just be PC>Xbox360=PS3 because both consoles are truly the same graphics power, I know everyone likes to throw hardware power into the equation, but it doesn't matter because unless a game is an exclusive it is made on PC then ported down to consoles so they almost always have worse graphics than PC and have equal graphics compared to each other. I'm sorry I had to break that to ya'll the hard way.
Lol exactly! What IS THIS ??? This is a brightness level bias, the PC is deliberately kept at the highest brightness and therefore called 'clear', the Xbox360 darker than that and the PS3 the darkest so that people wouldn't be able to see the power of the consoles. And what is this special bias against the PS3?
Someone should change the damn brightness on the PC. Someone likes it a lil too bright haha.. Completely Bias like all the other comparisons which Gamespot do
You can't really compare the graphics fairly, because where both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 both shine are their exclusives, which you can't compare side-by-side. I mean, Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 right there are graphically amazing games.
pc contrast is too high, or the light setting is too high, turn it down and the game automatically looks better.
In general i have to agree the pc looks best but the article says "the reflections looks better on the PC" , judging by the picture given the reflections look both more detailed and more realistic in the xbox 360 version, the pc versions are jagged and lack any depth in comparison. ( i have neither so i'm totally impartial , go ps2 gameplay trumps all :P )
People, people stop it. PS3 and 360 are both great. We need to see the real problem here...those Nintendo fools over in Japan. PC, PS3, 360 need to team up and kick some Nintendo ass.
wolfenstein plays better "looks better "on 360 then on my rig . its how the game is ported . newer games might cater to consols. "good info on the net but a lot of info is outdated."
WarLokk, you're correct, but the PC is a much, much more expensive platform. And you can never guarantee a stable FPS. +The PS3 fails at lighting even after all these years. Die away.
PS3 is very dark and texture is also very bad. PS3 only has some games which have extremely great graphics and those games only release on PS3. X Box has better graphics from ps3. But one thing is fine that PS3 is very expensive but has great hardware. The biggest thing in graphics of pc is that it is very clear.
