No quality difference between 360 and PS3

Written by David Stellmack

No meaningful difference in Crysis 2 between the two
A number of sources have said that there is a large gulf between the quality difference between the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Crysis 2. Developer Crytek, through executive producer Nathan Camarillo, claims, “…if there is a meaningful difference, I don’t see it.” He also challenges anyone else to find a difference.

The source of all of the problems seemed to have begun when a PS3 build reportedly suffered from choppy frame rate performance. Later, PSM3 magazine chimed in that there was a difference in visual quality between the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Crytek has said that the CryEngine 3 has the ability to appropriately scale the visual quality between platforms to get the best out of each platform to produce the best gaming experience. While Crytek calls it magic under the hood, it seems that the debate will continue on which version is visually better, but for our money the best version will still be the PC version by a long shot.

There are differences and the 360 is the best version and everybody knows it! There is a reason Crytek showed that version first,gave it the first demo ect. It was the lead platform and reaped the benefits from it. The PC by a long shot? Nope, not even a short shot!

my god.. where to start. the reason is this: development costs of the x-box 360 version are much lower then the ps3, which once you have developed crysis for the xbox or pc, it is relativley easy to port it over to the other and optimise it. the ps3 on the other hand is hard to optimise for due to it's unusual architecture.

Saying the Xbox version is better than the PC in graphics is well, quite frankly stupid.

Take a look at these comparison shots of the PC version @2560x1600 vs the 360 and say the PC version by a long shot! Also read what AM-CRACK SWEAT had to say about PC graphics!

'It's funny,' says AMD's worldwide developer relations manager of its GPU division, Richard Huddy. 'We often have at least ten times as much horsepower as an Xbox 360 or a PS3 in a high-end graphics card, yet it's very clear that the games don't look ten times as good.'

Thats straight from AM-DUNG's doo doo factory! I've been saying the same thing since I've been here! Now you have AM-DUNG admitting it!
