    “Assassin’s Creed is a game that comes with a bit of history. Way back in Face-Off Round 6, the PS3 version was savaged for its hugely disappointing performance, general blurriness and the feeling that its development was treated almost like an afterthought compared to the more technically solid Xbox 360 game.”

    and

    “So, overall the performance gap has dropped, but if you’ve got the choice, the Xbox 360 offers a sharper picture, smoother performance, lower levels of screen-tear and faster loading, and it doesn’t require PS3′s 1.5GB mandatory install either.”

    I’ve always been under the impression that the PS3′s versions of the games were superior to the 360′s. To be frank, the differences are tiny so I don’t see why it matters anyway. I’ll only get it on PS3 because of the extra free content, otherwise it doesn’t really matter.

    #16 2 years ago
  17. Dragon246

    @16
    Exactly my views. In most games, differences are too small for average joe for notice. Extra content is what that matters.
    And exclusive too :)

  18. Cozzy

    Yes exactly, pretty much all multi-plats, especially in recent times, are identical is terms of performance…well, except Skyrim.

  19. Gadzooks!

    I spent a lot of time A/B-ing versions of games when I bought my PS3.

    The AC differences were pretty fucking obvious, if you had functional eyes. First one especially ran like ass on the PS3.

    #19 2 years ago
  20. Cozzy

    Well it seems the first one may have had some problems but all sequels have been almost identical. I really don’t care that much if the lighting is brighter on the 360 version or a certain colour is a nicer shade on PS3. I’m more interested in exclusive DLC which is normally on the PS3 for Assassin’s Creed.

    #20 2 years ago
  21. Dragon246

    Taking 1st game as the benchmark to justify that the 5th game in the series is not better on ps3 despite having hours of exclusive content.
    Well done haters! Your logic is as convoluted as expected.

    @21

    But when it takes the last 1/4 of a consoles lifespan to achieve parity, surely that’s a bit shit?

    Sure things aren’t as bad now, but you’ve been playing inferior ports for most of the consoles lifespan… How is that a good thing?

    Skyrim was only last year and multi platform releases on 360 still edge out the PS3 ones.

    How does that ‘not matter?”

    It’s the whole reason Sony are dropping the CELL next time. It matters to Sony, but it doesn’t matter to you? Glad youve felt okay playing shoddy ports for the last 3 years.

    Like I said, PS3 is for exclusives only.

    I always purchase multiplatform games on 360, they’ve always been better 95% of the time, fact.

    Christ, some games on PS3 have been almost unplayable. That’s a first in console history…

    @24

    Sony are hardly a charity.

    They were typically arrogant when they stuck with the CELL for PS3, they paid the price when it came to multiplatform that’s all…

    It’s not anything controversial, it’s just a fact.

    It’s why the PS4 will basically be the same as the 720, I.e. Full PC architecture which will help with UNREAL 4 engine etc…

    You wouldn’t find loads of articles talking about Gaikai and Sony’s backwards compatible solution if not.

    It’s weird when you state facts and it ruffles people’s feathers when theres no need to be upset. Hopefully Sony will learn, if not screw ‘em and they deserve any difficulties they face in the future.

    They didn’t learn from the Emotion Engine difficulties in the past, hopefully they’ll get there shit together for PS4 / Orbis.

    Also, another tip:

    Don’t make your new machine sound like the second coming power wise, when it’s basically the same as the competition but slightly harder to make games for…

    That will always help.

    @26

    Indeed…

    @25

    Bet you were crazy jelly when it got announced for 360 though! :)

    The mighty 2 speed bluray drive helped the PS3 that time! ;)

    #27 2 years ago
  28. Cozzy

    @23 I think you may be slightly over-exaggerating. Yes there have been a few ports on the PS3 that haven’t been up to standard e.g. Skyrim, that’s fair enough, however it has not taken 3/4 of the PS3′s lifespan for multi-plats on PS3 to reach an equal standard to the 360.

    Many multi-plats are apparently superior, based on reviews, on the 360. However they are superior by very small amounts. More recently multi-plats will have a difference on Metacritic of no more than 1 or 2 and that leans either way with games being better on PS3 to 360 as well as the other way round.

    Normally the deciding factor for which platform a game performs best on is which is the lead console and for many games, especially in the early days of this generation the lead platform was 360. At the end of the day a port is a port and won’t normally be as good as the original. BUT it’s never so bad that the PS3 port is unplayable and some have even been superior if the developers have taken the port seriously.

    With regards to Assassin’s Creed, aside from maybe the first one the rest have all been on par with each other. The only thing that makes me want it on PS3 to 360 is the extra content. I really don’t see what the big fuss is that there may be a minuscule difference between the two versions.

    Console talk, PC super race has no need for petty mortal quarrels :)

    My conversation is based on processor choices really, if your into PCs, you should have a mild interest in system architecture and the choices console manufacturers make.

    Take a tour through digital foundry’s article history. The evidence is right there in straight-up numbers, videos and screenshots.

    Platform parity has rarely been acheived on PS3.

    The missing data is how much it cost developers to achieve that parity, or rather lack of.

    This is the damage that Sony’s ‘exotic’ hardware does to the industry. It damages developers, damages the platform holder and leaves millions of dissapointed gamers.

    Anyway this is way off topic. We should be calling Sony moneyhatting bastards.

    Or lens of truth…

    And it’s still happening… It’s certainly not the huge increase in performance that Sony had boasted of when the announced the CELL…

    And which helped its premium pricing…

    GTA 5, Metal Gear, Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3 comparisons should be interesting.

    They should be 1 to 1 near the end of the life cycle.

    Makes me laugh when Sony fans slag off the Wii U power (at which no point has Nintendo boasted about), yet the PS3 was supposed to smash the dowdy old 360… Yeah, how did that turn out?

    I’m overly critical of Sony mainly because of the huge amount of bullshit and lies they spew when announcing new tech…

    So let’s get something straight Monkey. By your methods EVERY multi-play game has sucked on Ps3 even though. The site you more then likely got the source from I’m going to say Digital Foundry(lens of truth is head to head). Were going to be selective in terms by choosing games that in the early development of ps3 where we had shoddy development from developers who openly stated that they don’t know how to develop for ps3.

    So from your example we should only compare a game from say Valve. Whose Orage Box was a shoody port and mess on PS# leading him to further state PS3 architecture sucked because he didn’t know how to develop for it. And, had the entire gaming community call him out to the point where when his presence on sonys E3 stage announcing Portal 2 and recanting his words was not a huge deal. Not at all right?

    Because by your logic all the counts is the shoddy beginning of this gen with shoddy development?

    Such a resound logic. Because we won’t go into detail how a game like Castlevania LoS was superior on ps3 than 360. We won’t go into detail on how Vanquish was also superior. Let’s not even get started on Dead Space 1 and 2. We also won’t go into retro specs that since developers have gotten the hang of developing for PS3 that not only have the difference been so minor that it came to gamma preferences (Which are interchangeable in the options menus.)

    None of that should be seen as sound reasoning that the difference on the Multi-plat front is still based solely on where the devs comfort lies. No type of logic of that sort can be implied right?

    Not even the fact that AC:B, AC2, and ACR all played identical on both machines right?

    We will just go with the per-determination that you are right and the early games speak larger volumes then current games. Dead Space 2 isn’t a valid achievement of developers in parity and developing techniques to fit all versions. We will just go by comparisons like AC1 and Rainbow Six Vegas 2.

    And let’s not even go into tech comparisons of exclusives that people like Lens of Truth did for games like Resistance 2 vs Halo 3, or Killzone 2 vs Gears of war 2.

    We will just go by your perspective since you and Da Dipsh*t have a clearer since of fanboy BS on your faces.

    @40

    By your logic Sony will obviously be making a CELL 2 or other new chip for Orbis / PS4..?

    Oh wait, they’re using similar spec to PC as this has caused all sorts of headaches for them in the currant gen…

    Sony blew the power of the PS3 out of all proportion when it got announced alongside the bluray drive to justify the ridiculed asking price.

    You’ve mentioned about 5 games there. Well done, clap clap, have a biscuit.

    You know it goes about 10 to 1 if not more in the favour of 360, it’s wildly docemented.

    So much so, Sony are changing tactics next gen. Even Sony have admitted this in a round about way, why cant you just ‘fess up?!

    I didn’t even bother to mention Valve, by the way.

    Stubborn mule is stubborn…

    @44

    And you are blind to the facts.

    Surely your precious totem should be smashing the 360 out of the ballpark with all the power it contains?

    Sony lied to you, deal with it.

    @Da Man did you know not once have I gotten angry?

    @Monkey so I named five you named 1 and then on top of that you just give a wild notion of a 10 to 1 comparison. Did you know most starting games this gen that received a sequel have not stayed consistent on the 360 being better end of your argument?

    Did you not see that SF4 which beat ps3 on 360 came back as parity on ssf4? How Tekken 6 was better on PS3 than 360? How TT2 on LoT was compared to be better on ps3 but equal on Digital foundry with controller preference being the deciding factor?

    Did you know that depending on which site churns your butter you can be selective and choose one analysis over another analysis just to support your biased agenda to “make” others mad?

    Guess none of those were known huh?

    Oh did you also know there is no official wording on what the PS4/Orbis will use and you don’t know if it will mock cell or orbis?

    Did you know even if they did mock PC specs it doesn’t matter because once the console releases some type of proof specs then it would be relevant?

    A lot of did you knows there did you know?

    “Have you played Gta4 on PC? Or Bioshock?!

    Why yes, both of those are the superior versions, GTA 4 because it was modded into an attractive game and Bioshock because it allowed for quick-slots and an actually playable pipe-mania rip-off. Fucking horrible console FoV though that was pretty lazy. Neither of those are all that more or less buggy than the console counterparts.

    I need more.

    Breaking news, first impressions on PC version of Gta4:

    http://www.1up.com/news/grand-theft-auto-4-suffering

    From being unable to start the game to missing textures to seemingly arbitrary limits on graphics settings, the situation appears to be nothing short of a disaster.

    Actually on the contrary. I was able to feed my son clean the kitchen get ready for work and type all this out. Time management is an awesome thing. You on the other hand lead a different impression. Constant streams of insults on multiple articles. Same inane attempts at trying to verbally castrate your peers. Same desperate outcry towards the most redundant things.

    With regards to the power of the PS3, it is much more powerful than the Xbox, an example of this being the incredible graphics on PS3 exclusives. A multi-plat can only have as much power behind it as the weakest platform.

    BUT in the early stages of the PS3 it was a bitch to develop on, hence some of the poor ports. This isn’t a problem anymore as developers know how to get the most out of it.

    Do you know what’s ‘inane’? It’s when you go on about close combat in Halo without having played the game. Like I said, amazing how i’m the one enlightening you on what was supposed to be your native tongue.

    No you are. My son is better than yours, my kitchen is cleaner and my dog os better too. I’m not angry by the way. You silly piece of Microsoft shit.

    Don’t you worry, sony will soon become redundant and the flames will disappear.

    The great thing of owning multiple consoles, besides exclusives which are the main soul for owning an X console, is that you can decide were the best multiplatform game is, i got darksiders, GTA 4 for ps3 because of that, and bayoneta and read dead redemption on the 360, and like this all the previous mentioned games on this thread, because i wanted to play the best possible experience of a said game (insert any name), and i think most gamers are this way too, of course those who can afford it.

    Having said that i think earlier this gen the difference in multiplatforms was palpable, the 360 did have the advantage while the ps3 did suffer a little bit due their new tech and different architecture, now things are more equal, altough some of the AAA multiplatforms games are still having some problems in the ps3 side of things, but now they are the exception rather than the rule, i try to keep a balance between consoles, one game for my 360 and one game for my ps3, to give all the consoles an equal amount of games, something that is not easy, becuase like i said, till this moment there is some problems with some AAA multiplatforms games, for example i have strangehold and battlefield on the ps3 and wet and COD on the 360.

    Also i do think microsoft made a wise decision when they did built the 360 with a common PC architecture, which enable easy to do ports without too much effort, time, money and resources speaking, while some developers due the different ps3 architecture, did had to go with giving the work of porting those multiplaform games, to another team entirely to handle the job, which speaks of the hard process due to time, money and effort constrains, i think is nice to have a new tech under the hood, and maybe the best tech, but its also good consider to make it affordable in the development process, and i think next sony home console will sort this out, because it was one of the reasons why it didnt had the many games like they did in the previous gen with the ps2, which was a very capable machine but it was easier to develop for, which incide in various factors as well in the development cycle, an becuase of this it was a mantra for games to flouirsh, and this is being quite the opposite case with the ps3 this gen.

    p.s oh and i forgot to mention with the topic at hand, i have the complete Assasins creed collection on my ps3, since i got the first one on the ps3, and i want to have the complete collection under the same console, i think i got it on the ps3, because i thought it was the main console in the development process at that moment.

    edit : I edit it to improve/polish the language, sorry, and probably i will do a multi edit while iam at it, but the sentiment will remain the same

    *yawn funny how subjective you are yet again. Funny thing was after I walked away from that Halo thread just like I will this one after this. People came out saying the same things I said about how Halo is played only difference is instead of them saying they are annoyed by it like I was. They said they still loved it, The wonderful thing about opinion are their like Da Mans… Whoops I meant Ass holes everybody has one

    @57 Nice post Manu, you’ve summed things up quite well. That’s how it should be really. I have a 360 and PS3 and split the multi-plats across each platform, normally based on DLC etc.

    Oh wait so GTA 4 was released as a sub-par mess because of the platform it was on and not at all because Rockstar is a bad developer?

    NewFlash it ran like shit on the consoles aswell. Actually it still runs like shit and looks like shit, neither of which now apply to the PC version.

    Someone send this to Kotaku.

    EDIt: Although in my experience I did encounter bugs in both GTA 4 and Bioshock, but that was through Games for Windows Live and not the games themselves. Figures.

    Find me a sentence where I insisted it was because of the platform (capabilities).

    You PC nerds get shit ports. Sad reality.

    Of course it didn’t run half as bad on consoles. I can find more google results about the pC version therefore I’m right.

    #63 2 years ago
  64. absolutezero

    The thing with shit ports on the PC is that alot of them can be fixed, by either the developer or the fanbase ala Dark Souls. Sadly thats not really possible on the console boxes.

    So you get a horrible frame-rate dropping ugly close draw distance juddering mess of a GTA with smeary mandatory vaseline vision and I get this instead :

    http://youtu.be/omUEpgtclNg

    Was that worth waiting the time for Rockstar to get its act togethor in order to fix the PC version? I think so.

    “Have you played Gta4 on PC?”

    I’d say theres a pretty heavy implication there that the reason for the games being buggy was because it was on the PC rather than it just being a lazy port.

    Defensive console nerds, jeez.

    The only thing they did is make it run better and look better, nothing inside it is changed. Modders also added multiplayer into San Andreas.

    ok ok ok Let me get this straight modders ruined a series that was originally a PC game?

    Dem neckbeards man thats some talent, especially when the downward trends of the series began when the series went over completely onto being console driven titles.

    Modders then. Worse than Hitler.
