Far Cry 3: PS3 vs. 360 gameplay comparison video

Postby budge » 22 Nov 2012, 13:44

I'm no good at spotting the tiny differences in these comparison vids and not really arsed but I would like to know if the PS3 version has framerate issues as tends to be the case.

Why is the 360 version so much darker? Are both of these at the same settings brightness and gamma wise?

I could be wrong but, I thought this isn't getting released in the US until a week after we get it in Europe?

And it's definitely not out in Europe till next Friday, not this Friday.

i've never ever ever ever ever ever ever seen ANY comparison video which is worth watching, for that reason. not only the actual tv settings, but the cable that connects the console to the tv makes a difference, also there are settings on the actual console which can make a difference.

basically, there's no way AT ALL of comparing these systems in the way in which they always are in these videos. you can get the settings of the consoles close and the tv settings the same and the cable the same, but the graphics cards output/compatibility with certain tvs, etc etc.

bottom line, just don't watch these vids - they're pointless. :D

appreciate a comparison vid, but the segment you've selected is god awful, its dark and allot of it is ingame cinemas, open world gameplay during the daytime would have been a much more intelligent choice.

Not nearly as pointless as these were.

Pogs are only good if they have Alf on them.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

These comparison vids always make me laugh!! YOU never even bother to make the level of brightness / colour saturation the same for each console/set, so one or the other is going to look "washed out" etc. if you do not get the levels right then you are not getting a chance to see the "graphical difference" is all I am saying...

qSPARTANp and z_surf_z make valid points.

Think I'll just wait for digital foundry's verdict, hopefully they'll have it up by next friday.

yup i have it pre-ordered November 30th,Yanks get it December 4th


I am not overly keen on these type of videos,i can never tell,i much prefer two screens showing the same thing rather than half and half...so apart from the darkness,i can not really tell that there is any difference

so PS3 and 360 peeps be happy
