My, That's a Fine-Looking Necromorph - Dead Space 3 Graphics Comparison

Which version of Dead Space 3 is the best looking? You decide.

Considering picking up that plasma cutter for one last foray into the world of Necromorph dismemberment, but in a dilemma over which version to buy? Well, consider this following graphics comparison much like said plasma cutter: a tool to help you with a potentially tricky job!

Check out the video below containing gameplay slowed down 50 per cent combined with some helpful stills. In addition, if you click the download link beneath the video, you can grab an uncompressed version of the video at standard speed--60fps--in 720p. Be warned, though: the file is over 1.2GB in size, so you might want to put some coffee on while you wait.

Download Uncompressed Video Here.

If high-resolution screens are your weapon of choice for visual comparisons, then fear not! We've got you covered below as well.

nobody cares, anyone who would sit here watching this videos to consider to which platform they are going to buy dead space 3 for this little difference in graphixs either have to many consoles at home and need to get a life, or are simply retarded. :) 


or in otherwords, gamespot has lost it´s edge, need to come up with better things to write about

Dead Space has some of the best graphics I've seen. The anti-aliasing in 3 is awesome. Even on PS3 I couldn't see any jaggies. That's how I want games to look.

Comparison between Xbox 360 and PS3 is fine but between PC and Consoles is pointless.

Regardless, video games are 1st made for the Consoles...and then finally for the PC. It's sad but there are more Konsole Kids out there than there are PC gamers.

I play it on the PC(Mouse controls FTW) and the only differences I notice are the crisp (Somewhat higher res) textures, AA, and a playable on a much higher resolution. The differences in graphics are almost exactly the same, nothing new added at all.

Max out Nvidia overrides. Dead Space 1 with 16xQ AA, 16x AF, 8x supersample and ambient occlusion ( Bit of a mouthful that one.. ) easily looks as good as Dead Space 3... atleast at the settings they used for this comparison.

PC version doesn't have DX11 so its pointless to have a comparison when it will just look the same on all three platforms

LOL This is not how you do a comparison.  What are you even thinking?

PC version and 360 are pretty close, with the PC logically having a higher resolution. That's not necessarily a clear cut advantage though, as it sometimes looks a bit overdone. Especially in a stormy snowy atmosphere like DS3's, I find too much clarity can at times actually reduce immersion. That said, at other times it does just look plain better, be it only a bit. However, I find the PS3 version to be noticeably worse than either competitor. Occasionally it just look blurry but most of all I simply can not stand the overall darker tones. You'd say it's something that could be easily "fixed", but I've seen it with other multiplatform games too: the PS3 version just looks darker. It looks darker and contrast seems to be lower.

I'm not sure what all the commotion is about. PC gaming isn't the best unless up you have the good hardware, which is going to cost you. You're not getting top performance unless you pay through the nose, and if you have 500$ to spend on a video card, or the latest CPU, you probably don't care anyway. Generally, it's PC, xbox 360, and Ps3. I've found that Ps3 textures are lower resolution, and it's darker. Some worship the ps3, but that's only because they're in love with the system, not cause the graphics are Better. I think it has to do with the fact Ps3 is OpenGL based. Unless it's a ps3 exclusive, games really don't shine.

I own a PC and most of the time it is pretty obvious that the PC version is superior in graphics, but I seriously barely notice any difference at all in these pictures.

everyone stop being fan boys now. its ok. most games do look better on pc. but more people buy a console so the dont half to build there own pc or shell out almost a thousand bucks for a pre made pc tha will run all of these high def games. its not a matter of witch is better its what we are able to afford. i mean if u can afford a good pc by all means go get it. but ill be sticking with my console. not because its "so much better than pc". its because its cheaper for me. and sense ive spent the time and money to build a games library for my ps3 i dont think ill be changeing anytime soon. anyways ps4 is out this year. so ill wait and put my money on that instead. oh and to coment on graphics for this specific game there is no real difference.

Seriously, when you're straining your eyes to see the most minute detail difference, there is no point.  What's really important is to wear a cup while playing, to protect your balls from being kicked from all the awesome that is sure to occur.

You do understand that consoles make up a the largest amount of cross platform game sales?

LOL @all of you fanboys... I play PC and PS3.... My system can run so far all games on high settings and a lot new ones on max.. and I still prefer gaming on my PS3 :P 

Most popular mutliplayer games (i.e. COD, Battlefield[whether you like them or not]) have larger and better communities on the consoles than on PC... On PC you'll shoot someone and they'll ban you from their server SMH.

Although when it comes to MMO's, obviously PC is the place to play them... :D

@yukimura12 Might have something to do with the PC being up to date and the consoles having the same hardware as they had 8 years ago when they came out. Might want to do that hard thing for you, called thinking before you speak

@advanracer PC gamers need knowledge to build a nice PC, handle games settings and that, Console gamers don't.

@Gaming-Planet The developers of the game didn't code it to take advantage of the PC's advanced graphics.  Sloppy, code porting to the PC.

@OneStrong2 do you even know the ps4's specs? those specs will be able to beat pc for the next 3years to come... i'm not a fanboy, I play a lot pc game's as wel. do you're research please before u try to be smart would ya? this realy pisses me of MISINFORMED GAMERS WHO LIKE TO PRETEND THEY'RE SMART. thank you

@OneStrong2 I compare PC games to movies.  If you want to watch a movie with superb graphics (video) quality then you invest in Blu-Ray and an HD TV.  If you want to watch a movie with poor graphics (video) then you watch a movie on DVD or VHS tape on a 32" tube TV.  The Xbox and Playstation platform is equivalent to watching a movie on DVD (or worse) on a non-HD TV.

@OneStrong2 you dont have to spend that much on a video card you can spend $200 and get a card that is as powerful as a PS4

@samdam3 Agreed.  Self Righteous PC gamers are equally as annoying as the squeaking little console kids if not worse.

@cimpeanradu @yukimura12 That is the ADVANTAGE of PC.  They can STAY up to date!  Its called I can upgrade faster than you can complain that my PC was better to start with!  PC Rules!

@jotazombie @advanracer Or they just don't want to spend the time or money to build a Gaming PC. Not everybody is a super video game nerd.... Why do you think there is so many custom gaming PC sites?

@tionmedon @realone2005  

your gtx 690 does what? support DX11? thats great, but means nothing if the game isn't set up for it... -_-

@CP2077 @OneStrong2  why bother if your going to have a video card as powerful as a ps3 just buy the PS3 less hassle and cheaper to maintain.

@OneStrong2 also I might add games cost less on PC making it easy to to save $200 a year on games so it pays for it self if you buy a lot of games

@cimpeanradu @RedtailD @yukimura12 Well... fanboy... lol.  I am 46 years old and have building PC's since 1985.  Consoles are cool, I have two, but the PC rules.  No fanboy here, I just know the difference when I play the XB and when I am on the PC.  And its not a fair comparison, my PC smokes by the consoles.  lol fanboy... lol....Now time to call me old man.  My wife and kids do.

@cimpeanradu@RedtailD@yukimura12 

 Well my system from 2006 (save an upgraded GPU) still runs everything out today.... with better quality...soo....yeah.

Also, with a PC i don't have to pay extra to access features that should already come with the system, or pay a fee to have access to online gaming...

Also, for enthusiasts, PC is far more protected in the world of unlocking/rooting with some component manufacturers now ENCOURAGING builders to tweak their systems.

Add in the option of Free-to-Play games, and I'd say the PC heavily outweighs all opponents (for now) in the world of gaming, at least for those who are serious about it. for the casual gamer, sure, an xbox is probably your best bet...but if you want options and the freedom to use them...go with PC.


Another reason that wins me over is the ability to assemble your own pc...you have that personal gratification of building a badass rig on your own.... sure sometimes you have to figure out things on your own like airflow, cable management, etc. but isn't that part of the fun? for me, yes.

While these guys look like idiots - you don't necessarily have to throw any money into it for 8 years. Any monetary arguments just don't apply. Once you have your computer - upgrading it can be a one time hefty fee of $500. (Mind you $500 will get you some bad ass hardware.) Sure, it's an additional cost on top of the computer, but it would be no different than owning a computer and purchasing a brand new console for the first time. That $500 would have gotten you better hardware than any console. And it would stay above the specs for 8 years. Still allowing you to offer a better experience than any console. 

 I hate the misled objections to PC gaming. We get it, you don't want to bother with upgrading and patches and installing anything because people may not understand Windows fully. Yes, PC gaming takes a bit more hands on to work. Yes consoles just work out of the box. 

 I'm not denying ANY pro's to owning a console. (Simplicity) But there is one undeniable pro that a PC has (and every console owner seems to refuse) is that it will ALWAYS offer a better platform for you to play videogames on. Yes, it takes a little more investment of TIME. But for those of us who prefer PC's; don't hate. We have just chosen a more rigorous way to play our videogames to get the best experience possible. 


Can we all just end the fanboy shit? Isn't that what we are all here for anyways? Our love of videogames? Who the fuck cares what you play on.

@RedtailD @cimpeanradu @yukimura12 Your fanboyism is off the charts and you manage to completely ignore all the facts due to your love for pc's....or that's what you make it look like. Of course a pc can stay up to date, but I'd rather buy a console be it xbox or playstation, and be able to play games for 8 years or more without having to invest more money in it. How many times would I have to upgrade a PC in order to do that over that timespan? Yup, thought so. Look at the facts, leave the fanboying thing aside, and think bang for buck. Or just keep doing what you want and keep the IQ of a pistachio. Whatever you do, I couldn't care less.

@megakick @jotazombie @advanracer good to know that building a pc on ur own and not being an ignorant fuck possibly while not even having gaming in mind..makes ppl super video games nerds :D
