The Superior Version Of A Multiplat. Game Thread! (Consoles Only)

Forums - Gaming Discussion - The Superior Version Of A Multiplat. Game Thread! (Consoles Only)

NOTE TO MODS AND FANBOYS: THIS THREAD IS NOT CREATED TO INCITE ANGER, IT IS ONLY TO KNOW WHICH GAME IS BETTER FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS MUTLIPLE CONSOLES!!!

Okay, I know that I'm not the only one around here with more than one system, and I'm sure that many of you have had to make choices on which system to get your multiplatform games for, so... I've decided to make this thread.

Below is a table, listing the Name of the game, the Available systems (Wii, 360, and PS3. Portables and PS2 don't count) The Major Benefits/Problems of going with each version, and the determined best system, or if it close enough, It can be listed as PP (Personal Preference), and the winners, if any, can be listed.

For example, The 360 version of Madden '08 (not '09) was obviously superior to the PS3 version, but it is a matter of taste between graphics and Control to determine which is better between the 360 and Wii version, so the last column would say "PP: 1. Wii60," followed by "2. PS3" on another space down

And for the record, Quality of online play (service, not game types) is out of the window, with the exception of Wii-PS3 comparisons, because for the 360's better online play, you have to pay for it, while PSN is free...

If the game is finished, the title will be highlighted in Green Gray. If not, It will be highlighted in Red. The title bar is highlighted in Yellow. If 2 versions of a game are similar enough (nearl identical), they will be listed as one (ex: PS360).

I will start this thread with Guitar Hero: World Tour. I will update the OP as much as possible (probably every 2 days on average)

Your contributions will be greatly appreciated!!!

Game Title - Call of Duty World at War

Avail System - PS3, 360, Wii

Wii - Wii version available for $49.99. No online co-op mode and limited version of the online multiplayer mode. The Wii version is the most awkward to control. Nowhere near as good looking.

PS3 - Trophy support. Prone to latency issues. Aliasing problems on the PS3, especially when playing in 1080p (the game supports 1080i and 1080p on the PS3), making for a jagged picture. Textures aren't quite as sharp, and smoke effects tend to wash out environmental details with a flattening white effect that doesn't happen on the 360. Some occasional issues with sound

360 - Online community on 360 seems a little bit bigger and the performance just a bit more stable. Looks a bit better than the PS3 version.

Verdict - 1. 360 2. PS3 3. Wii



EMULATION is the past.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

 

 


Whats P.O.D.?

Game Title - Far Cry 2

Avail System - PS3, 360

360 - Runs just a little bit more smoothly.
