Surprised to see a UE3 game running better on ps3. Still, pc is the obvious buy here



Around the Network

This was console lead on PS3. Irrational Games stated by getting the code to run well across multiple processors on PS3 would mean a more efficient code on the 360 and PC as well.

The differences are minor though with 360 having a lot less screen tear and higher res shadows but with a framerate penalty while PS3 get's faster texture streaming, better texture filtering, better frame rate but at the cost of more screen tear due to a more liberal use of adaptive v-sync.



Just the fact the PS3 runs smoothness and have better response makes my day.

For gameplay "The more responsive PS3 game gets the nod for delivering a more consistent, flowing gameplay experience."



For 360 owners, install the game. No framerate issues at all. Its best best version on consoles.

PC looks a lot sharper but not a world of difference.

I second this notion.

Not when the PS3 have the most responsive controls during intense fire fights where quick reactions count.

That is the DF conclusion "The more responsive PS3 game gets the nod for delivering a more consistent, flowing gameplay experience. The addition of tearing isn't particularly attractive, but the extra controller response is preferable during intense combat scenes."

PC >>> PS3 > 360


unless you like screen tearing...

there is bugger all in it as usual these days for PS3 and 360.



I'm not really here!

I prefer better gameplay even with some screen tearing... smoothness and responsive... what do you prefer?

Of course the best of the world is better gameplay and no screen tearing... PC.



As expected really. No shocks.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Even though screen tearing can be terrible, I will always take that over a low framerate
