It really is a nice looking game, except for the character models. Their giant dead staring eyes creep me out.

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

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."

Sadly they didn't tell us if they installed the game on 360. I remember some comparisons from lensoftruth.com where this also happened ("360-version has worse textures").

To do a fair comparison they wouldn't install it. They have to see it working in a way that can suit everyone. No everyone has a hdd to install multiple games on the 360 were the ps3 comes with bigger hdd's to make up for the mandatory installs on most if not all games this late into the gen. I installed mine at it runs well. I get very minor frame rate issues and even used it on unlocked frame rate option in the settings for a decent amount of the game towards the end. I find it better to install newer game because of how much they push the hardware this late into the gen.

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


You really hav no idea until you play it, or see it in action.  Some online videos can stream it ok, but almost none do next gen justice.  The videos just are not high enough quality to show the detail.

 

Believe me, Bioshock: Infinite maxed out in 1080p at 60 FPS is easily a full generation ahead of the PS3 version.  Also the PS4 is easily capable of running it...

Yeah, yeah... I have an idea because I've seen and played games running on high end PCs before.

I anticipated the PC version to look considerably better, but the PS3 version actually holds up better than I anticipated.

what about people with this?

It takes GT5 to make it useless for other games with mandatory installs.

But they usually mention the result both ways if installing helped the performance in any way...

GT5 didn't have mandatory install... it is optional (but I don't recomend to play it without install).
