so the only differences are AA and contrast? 


man the hud is soo hard to read on the ps3 version (same with the demo) they need to fix that, it shouldnt be hard

The sun made both pics completly different.



I posted this picture with a few others a couple days ago showing that the ps3 had better textures, lighting, contrast etc. and everyone who posted said they liked the 360 version better because crushed blacks are supposedly super attractive....

The 360 does have better IQ though, and runs with 100 pixles of more resolution suposedly.

That is because the ps3 version has rays such as in the pc version but the 360 version has an ugly bloom effect.

In the multiplayer anyway. I'm only comparing multiplayer here.

With all the talk from ign, and bs shots from lens of truth no one wants to believe that the ps3 version is possibly superior. If it makes them people feel better though the 360 demo is a week or two away from final build and rumors fly around that the ps3 version is the final build.

Fail comparison is Fail

Pick the same weather/lighting next time.

These pics are both from the multiplayer demo on the respective console. The lighting on each system is different wich is what is shown in the comparisons. The weather does not change on the map. What you see is what you get.

Either the PS3 demo was a much older version of the game compared to the X360 demo or Crytek really failed big time. 2-3 years ago is wasn't uncommon for multiplatform games to look better on 360 but today most look identical with differences being at most negligible. And with the likes of Uncharted 2, Killzone 2/3 and God of War 3 if Crytek can't do any better on PS3 why even bother. In any case they are no longer the king of graphics like they used to be no matter what version we look at.

Still its worth waiting for a comparison with the final retail version.

Can't really compare based on these two screen grabs; the lighting differences are simply too extreme.

I will say that there is clearer reflectivity in the water for the PS3 frame grab, but also more aliasing visible, particularly on the weapon and holosight, most likely due to a lower native render resolution.

I'm sure there are about million better frame grabs that could have been used to represent the 360 port as the "HDR" lighting in this particular frame make the blacks look crushed and the highlights blown out due to the high contrast horizon style lighting. But this is the type of effect one would expect to see in a realistic setting under the same lighting conditions, so it's not inaccurate by any measure; it just looks extremely contrasted.
