Video: Tom Clancy's HAWX: Demo Analysis for PS3 & XBox 360

100°
299w ago - The Xbox 360 demo of Ubisoft's take on the Ace Combat-style arcade flight sim genre has been available for some time, but due to 'technical issues', the PlayStation 3 code only made it to the Store last week.

It's worth pointing out that the PS3 code does come with a disclaimer saying that the demo is not representative of the final code, but we find it hard to believe that core elements of the engine such as the anti-aliasing method and lighting model will change that much in the final game, especially when it's out in the US today. Suffice to say, we'll be looking at that too though in the fullness of time.

As it is, demos are released to give you a taste of what you'll be buying when the game comes to the shops, so with that in mind, here's our take on the HAWX sampler on both PS3 and 360.





The game runs at native 720p on both consoles, with the 360 code running full-on 4x MSAA, while PS3 is using nothing but horizontal blur. This noticeably deteriorates visual clarity and doesn't really smooth edges much at all.

There's also a lighting difference as you can see from the shots, the excellent use of light bloom from the 360 code is nowhere to be seen on the PS3 version.

One of the most popular graphic novels of all time hits the big-screen this Friday, with 300 director Zack Snyder at the helm.

So while I am figuring out a way to snag IMAX tickets for Friday, Watchmen fever is spreading to the PS3, with the downloadable title coming to PlayStation Network this Thursday.

Jeff and I recently visited with Warner for a little hands-on time with the game, and I grabbed associate producer Jerry Pritchard for some questions.





And Jerry was nice enough to agree to come on back to the Blog tomorrow from 11am - 12 noon for a live chat about Watchmen: The End is Nigh for PSN. So get your questions ready because we're doin' this all over again!
