252w ago - Ever since the PlayStation 3 got out on the market there have been different comparisons of the two systems.
Well, there is nothing wrong with them, but now, graphically, with upcoming titles like Killzone 2 and even Uncharted 2, the Xbox 360 console has nothing to compare with to the PS3.
I recently read the review of Killzone 2 that was published in The Guardian newspaper and the reviewer stated that the game is, and i qoute; "not quite up to the awesome standard of 360's Gears Of War 2″.
I know he's not talking about the graphics. And I said to myself; "What the hell is so damn awesome about Gears Of War 2?". The gameplay maybe? It's still too much alike the first Gears Of War. There is nothing wrong with the gameplay in Killzone 2. It's been too much picking of how much the PS3 suck. No great games and how the quality of the graphics that's not any greater than the 360.
Well, I can agree that alot of games for the PS3 is not that great graphically and story-wise. I can't get how you, as a game producer, can release such games. Well, it's also about how big budget you have, but anyway. Like Blacksite for example, I think that is one of the worst games ever. There is nothing great, or even good, with that game. The graphics would fit the PS2 system easily.
Other games that also looks aweful is Army Of Two, Kane & Lynch and Conflict: Denied Ops to name a few. Haze is a nice looking game, but the story is just aweful. Also, it's time for EA to ditch the Need For Speed series if they can't make it any better or interesting, the PS3 version of Undercover is laggy.
Even the upcoming Prototype game looks pretty descent compared to Killzone 2. They haven't put any hard work in the surroundings, the cars looks like cheap models like they did in GTA3 on PC for example. Poor quality. Check out this image.
Back to the consoles. Let's talk about the prize. As of now, I don't think the prize is a big difference and the PS3 is not too expensive. Not if you look at the differences of the two consoles. The 360 has no 1080p support or Blu-Ray player and you don't have to pay to play online games with the PS3. Just to get a stand alone Blu-Ray player costs like the 360 console. So, that's only good things for the PS3.
So, how is it with the development of the systems? Maybe the 360 is easier to produce and develope games on but I don't think that's something you can go for if you should do great games or if you are in the plans of making a game exclusive for the 360 or even a port to the PS3 system. It's all a matter of how good you are to put out the best of anything.
Those how can make the best out of the PS3 is Naughty Dog with their Uncharted-series, Guerrilla Games with Killzone 2 and SCEE with God Of War 3 so far, I think more developers will join this squad pretty soon. All of these games is exclusive for PlayStation 3 and I think it's great so they can fully consentrate on it to do the best possible game, because they know how to do it. Just take a look on Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, I think this is still one of the best looking game ever made and this game was released in 2007.
Other notable thing is that Drake's Fortune only used about 30% of the PS3's power and they're planning to use nearly 100% with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. If you've missed it, check out the first trailer here. Not to talk about Killzone 2. This will absolutely have the best graphics so far and I think they will have that title for a while.
What concerns God Of War 3, you can't make any real review of how the game will look, because it's so far from completed, but what was shown the other day with the trailer, check it out here, it really looks promising and outstanding. The 360 has no games, not even upcoming, that can match this. Playstation 3 has a big advantage with it's Blu-Ray player, wich have bigger storage on discs and to get true 1080p.
Check out the fire in this Gears Of War 2 video, do you think that's nice?, there is nothing good looking with it. Even the crosshair looks damn ugly, and WTH is about the big creamy-like blood losses when you get shot?
Hell, you should be drained on blood in a second in loosing so much blood. Instead take a look at the fire and explosions in Killzone 2, it is way more life like and much better looking and the blood isn't that thick. Just to mention how the water looks in Uncharted. It's really beautiful.
I'm not saying that Gears Of War 2 overall looks ugly or something like that, but it can't be compared with the PS3 titles. Call of Duty 4 and Call of Duty World at War is pretty nice though, but they are built on an engine and CPU to be released on both systems.
Can you imagine how Killzone 2 or even Uncharted would look like if they were, just say 360 exclusive? Didn't think so, share your comments below!

Yes it is true that not all games are True 1080P but most games on PS3 are 1080P, and for all those saying that the xbox360 hardware does not support 1080P Native games you are wrong I know of two Native 1080P games and they are; Street Home Court & Virtual Tennis 3.
I will agree that saying Killzone 2 has the best graphics ever is complete bullshit since there are many PC games which look much better, but I believe this article is only referring to consoles. The HDR used in this game has never been seen before on any console game, but it does over saturate with bloom effects. Controls can be changed and manually set and the final game will always be better than a public release demo.
If you look up some reviews of Killzone 2 you will find that the online play is absolutely magnificent. Once again controls can be changed, and Uncharted was a good first release for the PS3 when uncharted was released Developers where just getting their heads around the PS3 architecture and thats how they managed to release a stunning game, since then most dev's have learned alot more about the console and you can see this in Killzone 2 which has the best graphics on PS3 to date.
Xbox360's hardware does not support 1080p. sure it can upscale it to that, but it's not true HD. When looking at the PS3 hardware, it does support 1080p. This was defined from the start already. As for games, I don't think we'll see games running at 1080p (true HD) soon (except Wipeout HD if i'm not mistaken). They also tried it with killzone 2 but they could not get it stable in the small amount of time left (or stable at all).
Bud not all though games are 1080p native MGS4 is 720p only as it says on the back of my case but it upscales to 1080p.
also i don't agree with Killzone 2 having the best graphics ever it looks good but that's it its nothing special the only thing i can say is good and haven't seen this good before on a console is the HDR lighting that's it and the controls are god awful this is all from the demo though but i doubt it will be any better in the final game.
also i am a gameplay online and SP i don't care about the graphics as long as its playable Halo3 dint like that its to arcade just doesn't feel right also Killzone 2 you have to fight with the controls to look about even with the sensitivity max the best game i have played on PS3 is uncharted i like this game it looks good and plays good.
