Compared to 9.3 they gave it for the 360.

It's the same game, with apparently slightly worse graphics and 20 free maps.

Surely it should be the same, or more?

I don't really see any difference in the graphics, except that they've turned that irritating soft-focus effect off.

People its a 9 month old game . Which in turn looks a little worse now than it did back then Ubisoft overused the bloom and HDR lighting effects in the Xbox 360 version and I think those effects probably masked some slightly ropey-looking textures (as well as interfering with your view in some sections). In the PS3 version, those effects have been toned down a bit (they are certainly not missing as IGN have suggested). This makes the game look a little rough and gritty but, strangely, not in a bad way. In fact, in some ways, everything looks sharper and clearer; kind of how I would imagine things would look if you had just had cataract surgery! I always felt that the Xbox 360 version looked a bit cartoonish; this version looks more real to me, but it's all a question of taste really.

Simple Qs ,does the 360 version look better ...........?
A simple yes or no will do .

I've played this on my PS3 and when the display output is set to 1080i all the writing is blury and the game does not look sharp at all. I've had to set the display output to 720p and this solve's the problems I had.

Hardly a glowing recoemendation to buy the game if you ask me, compared to the 360 version. The graphics look quite poor in those videos, although being a veteran R6 fan, I expect I will enjoy this game, so I am making my way to the shops this morning to pick it up. Still looking forward to 'proper' games coming out for the PS3, the ones which are designed for it from the ground up (Killzone 2, Heavenly Sword, MGS4).

Just got it, did the first mission and played a match online. And i cant see a single difference graphically between this and the 360 version. And i didnt have any lag online, but one guys headset was mashing up, but i think that was just his headset. The only problem that needs sorting tbh is the lobby system.

Whenever IGN do a review of a PS3 game compared to the Xbox version the PS3 always comes off worse, personally I take everything they say with a pinch of salt, especially there ratings.

I bought it earlier and to be honest its the second worst game ive played on PS3!

(F.E.A.R was the first, for pretty much the same reasons)

It just seems like another second rate import. It sucks. It in no way, shape or form does the PS3 justice!
Im getting seriously fed up of this cr*p, its been like 4 months and all we seem to get is shoddy half ar*ed games imported from some other console months before.
And to top it off when a new game is due out, the PS3 version gets f*cking delayed! :mad: (The Darkness)

WHAT THE F*CK IS GOING ON!?!?!?!

its not Sony's fault.games makers to blame really. its a shame though because Sony console's made them millions of $$ in the past decade & now they treat the PS3 with no respect at all & favoring the hacked 360 over it. dont these losers know thousands of people are playing their games for free ?? while all the Sony fans are paying full cash to play their games ?? this truely sucks.
