Wow.All kinds of junk that is TOTALLY useless.Battling over graphics is stupid enough,but then battling over such minute details?Can't you just be happy you have a fantastic game with good graphics?

@mw2hardcore Just because you're not shooting bullets doesn't mean you're not shooting.

why do people describe portal as a FPS? FPS=first person (shooter) correct=FP=first person

FACT FACT FACT FACT FACT did you know that portal 2 which has about 5-6 characters has 13000 lines of dialogue?in another case , MASS EFFECT 2 with over 540 characters has only about 25000 lines of dialogue? so not even x2?

@supersackboy23 i say so.though you got a lot of thumbs down but playing with a controller is a lot easier (for me at least). also why do gamespot do this video?it's not like your looking for extreme levels of graphics in a puzzle/thinking game , now are you?

Who really cares....When you're playing the game it doesn't really matter how the shadowing of a tree looks... I mean seriously.

this guy is flat out stupid the 360s shadows are not better. he really must think shadows in the real world appear pitch black. the really isnt better graphics because it is caused by missing global illumination.

I don't know what is wrong with Gamespots computer, my toilet has shadows, just had a look. Doesn't matter at all wich platform you play it on anyways, it's a great game regardless.

Anyways, i can't even imagine myself playing Portal 2 on a console, I played the first one on console and the second was ment to be played on console too.

They all Look the same why do you even do this video!

Is it really necessary to compare each version to another? It only feeds the fanboyic fires. I've got the X360 version (since that's the only console I have) and I enjoyed it tremendously! Whatever version you'll get, pride yourself with the fact you played a wonderful game. The experience is the same.

PS3 was a no brainer for me, it comes with the PC version.

@supersackboy23 You can do both those things on a PC too...

Sure the PC graphics are probably a little better, but honestly, I'd rather sit on on the couch and play with a controller. It's not that hard.

@J4m3sR4n0r72 and @snake_6483 The accompanying article says up front that graphics aren't the reason to play Portal 2. They just think the comparison is interesting because it's an unusual situation. The narrator needs to get the marbles out of his mouth.

Do the graphics really matter much in portal 2? I mean yeah there are moments where the game can look good, but it is running on a 6+ year old engine. There are many games that look eons more advanced than this. I do have to say though, most games don't have as many moving object as this does and can keep the smooth gameplay, Portal 2 is awesome, but is nothing I would want to show off for its looks. That still goes to the first Crysis and Metroo 2033

I guess someone forgot to turn shadows on in the options.

That's really bizarre how the Xbox gets shadows that are even better than a high-end PC. How strange.

J4m3sR4n0r72

In my honest personal opinion, I don't feel that many people are going to choose which platform to play Portal 2 on due to which platform has the best graphics. That's just MY opinion.

Get rid of shadows and give me higher FPS.

Lol I want to see them show PC vs Mac graphics for Portal 2...now that'll be a landslide! :)

He hopes that will help us decide what platform to play on. Does he? Really? Because playing Portal with a PS3 or Xbox controller is better than a mouse and keyboard right? If I had to play Portal - or any FPS for that matter - with a console controller I'd give up gaming altogether and pick up crocheting. Or something. Playing a FPS game with a console controller is like peeling a banana with your feets. It's doable but extremely frustrating.

um more canned shadows doesnt make it better, real-time high res shadows do however. Lets just face it, pc looks way better than ps3 which looks quite a bit better than 360.

I play on the X-Box 360 (partly because my computer is crap and I don't have a PS3).

"...Must bow down to the mighty PC." Now, I could care less on the topic of '"which gaming system is the best?" (I mean, they're all pretty awesome in their own way), however, that line makes me feel proud to a PC gamer. I don't know why, though, just does. :P Anyway, can't wait to pick up my copy of Portal 2. Heard it's amazing!

@Lukemaneiro I'm sorta confused maybe you can clarify for me will the PS3 be getting the same mod support as the PC version since it is Steam compatible? I just really want to know because I think mods would be pretty cool.

@ Aristowi the ps3 version comes with a free pc copy so that way you can play on both

@Aristowi No, most console games run at 30 frames, Some do 60 but i believe the majority do 30. Pc, all do 60 well depending on your hardware.

Aristowi

Does the game run at 60 fps on consoles? because if so i might consider getting the PS3 version, if not, I will get it for PC.
