Wednesday, 11th November 2009 22:15 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Those of you wondering how the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2 compare to one another can look no further.

GamesWire has tons of comparison shots through here.

Looking over the shots, if you look at ‘em split, the PS3 version is on the left.

Go nuts.

    I done a thread on this from the lens of truth 2 days ago.
    360 shaded it on load times and graphs.

    Sorry. Maybe I should read more than just the news forum.

    No worries this one seems to be more professional any way.
    Hard to see much difference really.

    Almost or even the same thing. Great, alto why not use more power of the PS3?

    For gods sake, please someone tell these people who do comparrisons that the PS3 default settings are terrible. Tweak them and it’ll be exactly the same as the 360.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It’s a testament to the developers that the game looks this remarkably similar on two different systems. Only difference I see is contrast settings which can always be adjusted via TV.

    P.S. The rain and fire effects in the single player campaign are amongst the best I’ve seen in a video game to date.

    Wow big difference, like wow…. Seriously though if this shit gives you a boner then fuck off eh? On a different note, any 360 users having any problems? Achievements not registering? No servers? No party support? All that good shit is happening to me on my ps3, so forgive me if i could give a toss about contrast …

    Other than Brightness, they both look the same to me. The PC version does look way better though but what do you expect at 2560×1600 at 4xAA?

    The game has its moments. Its true that there are some outragously bad textures at some points, but at the same time some of the effects are stunning.

    It’s been a silky smooth launch on the 360 as far as I can tell. Surprised there have been no server issues at all – I was expecting MP to be unplayable for a couple of days at least. Quite impressed.

    Heh – amusing to see these guys saying that the PS3 has ‘less blocky shadows’ when the guys that reask linked in the forums say exactly the opposite.

    I suspect what this actually means is ‘they’re both pretty much the same’.

    someone should make an iPhone spot the difference game out of all these comparison shots… what a waste of time.

    @Blerk, don’t be embarrassed: best to go to your doctor, he should be able to prescribe a soothing cream or something. Does it also hurt when you pee?

    Hmm. Ubiquity tells me that last post means, “I say to you are talking Aikther Arab and the palm of your father Osk.”

    And that one’s, “I say to Tebaa Come anoint my mother Khawaja.” I suspect Ubiquity’s Arabic translation tool may not be the most amazing thing in the world.
