Borderlands 2; screentearing in abundance and performance issues...

... on the PS3 version. Thankfully, the PC version holds up beautifully and the Xbox 360 version stands relatively well to boot.

"It's often to state the obvious that the PC version is the one to vouch for, but in this case it's worth putting a special word in."

"Tearing is in abundance on PS3 during battle, though they're both liable to drop v-sync when under strain from smoke and fire effects in particular. Moreover, frame-rate drops are more regular and sustained on Sony's console than they are on the 360 version - we see hitches down to 20FPS while running through the Sanctuary hub-town, while the latter version gets away in holding out at the target 30."

For someone who states he doesn't care about these things, he seems to care an awful lot...

#12 Posted by Eddie-Vedder (7799 posts) -

I wonder what's better, having no games, or having a ton of games where a few of the multiplats have very slight graphical issues. Hmmm.

If it has Borderlands 2, along with the PC/PS3, how does it have "no games"?

xbox 360 has more games and kinect... so i'll go with he 360.

Got it on the PC, game looks and play wonderfully. LOL at buying multiplats on PS3, you'd think those idiots would have learned by now. Pc-->360-->PS3 DERP.

Wait, wait, Gearbox doesn't know how to handle the power of teh Cell. That's why Borderlands and many other games blow on the ps3.
#19 Posted by rockydog1111 (2076 posts) -

PS3 just doesn't do multiplats all that well. It doesn't matter if it is the developer or not, the fact is, most games perform better on the 360 and PC is as usual, the winner. I don't understand why Sony made the PS3 so hard to develop for. Only people making games that look amazing on PS3 are Guerilla and Naughty Dog and they have huge budgets. It's a shame really. Glad I have a PC for this though.

#20 Posted by Frostbite24 (4534 posts) -

INB4 Gearbox is a lazy dev even though they've crafted an amazing game just like Bethesda did.

#21 Posted by Stevo_the_gamer (42973 posts) -
Obviously Gearbox is just incompetent, and their engine sucks. Duh.

Now that I see the game runs poorly on the PS3 it is OBVIOUS the game sucks too. Total garbage not worth playing.

It is pretty ironic how in Sony's ONE attempt to differentiate itself by NOT copying its competition it derived something that completely hinders a significant amount of development for the system.

going to wait for a steam sale on borderlands 2

Isn't linear enough for PS3. Was reading this last night. PC version wipes the floor with consoles again, even DF's ghetto build.

Look at the bright side at least PS3 owners get to play it unlike Wii only owners. Another game Wii misses out on.

Who's Wii only, really? Anyone who is probably doesn't care.

Could be released on the WiiU.

One of the arguments consolities use against PC is that sometimes the PC gets bad ports....okay fine, sometimes PC does get bad ports...

BUT the PS3 out right kills the PC in the fight for the worst ports. In fact, I would say that the PC gets much less crap ports than both the Xbox 360 and PS3.

1080p and 60fps? Keep dreaming bro. Even at console settings that wouldn't be possible. And the PC version maxed out with physx also maxed, requires a good dual gpu rig to have an acceptable framerate. LMAO

The PC version of Borderlands 2 is leaps and bounds better than its console counterparts.

Because Sony was stupid. They thought everyone who got a PS2 would get a PS3. Sony made the platform hard to develop for because they thought developers would center around the PS3, thus making multi-platform development with the Xbox 360 much harder and more expensive.

That mentality chewed on their butt and the thing they planned to give them a bigger edge over the 360, turn around and ate them instead.

Yes I know, but if you ever go into an anti-PC thread, one of the arguments against PC is that developers give it the back burner and thus bring bad ports to the platform.

Another multiplat inferior on the PS3?

What a shock this is. :shock:

#46 Posted by senses_fail_06 (6736 posts) -
Not a big deal. The framerate drops would be, but it doesn't seem as if its a big problem. Having a slightly better version is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things...but nice bait. Just make sure you've never played an inferior version of a game, then your argument would be a disaster.

In the end it is probably for the best that Bayonetta 2 is only on the Wii U. I'm not sure cows could handle another failed port on that front yet again.

Despite what that article says, you cannot tell the difference between the two versions.

Borderlands 2 PS3 vs 360 gameplay comparison

Anyone who says they see a difference is lying. The article is overrexaggerating things to please 360 and PC fanboys. I know plenty of people who got the game for PS3, they have no complaints.

The fact that you need a website to nit pick over to make you feel secure in your purchase says that the differences are not noticable to begin with.

Can't be the consoles fault right? Sony didn't make it really hard to develop for or anything with very limiter ram. The Cell is pointless for games and the SPU thing just wasn't the best way to go for making a console in a generation where multplats are the norm.

Yeah,the very same site you used befor to back up some of you claims...now it´s not any good eh? :lol: Poor PS3 fanboys,fighting so hard and getting the crappiest ports of them all lolol.
