I got stuck on the PS3 version, and it was markedly inferior. Lots of screen-tearing, particularly during cutscenes, a smushed draw distance and some rough, ugly texture compression. Granted, the game still played fine, and most console owners won't care, but the PS3's graphics weren't looking so hot. The Xbox 360 version, from what I saw, looked somewhat betterless tearing, and darker textures, though still nowhere near the quality of the PC version.

Well, this sucks. I was planning on getting it on the PS3 for the exclusive content, but now I may have to switch. Get your s**t together Ubisoft.

Not surprised about the PS3 version, PS3 doe's not do openworld games good

I'd be worried about Assassins Creed 3 on PS3 to, that game is huge

Well, that's not surprising tbh.

The E3 demo on the PS3 looked like crap (pop-up, jaggies) and ran sluggish.

PC is where it's at it for the game.

Oddly, there's no Wii U version planned for some reason.

I think everyone knows multiplats are better on 360. Why beat this horse to death for 7 seven eyars.

I am worried. If it wasn't for those PS3 exclusive missions, I'd definitely get it for 360 instead.

Lies!! Kotaku isn't trustworthy and hasn't been for years. Ps3 is either equal to 360 in multiplats or better

This is in no way suprising to me. It isn't worth it for the devs to put forth the time and money to optimize the PS3 version. Here is to hoping Sony learned their lesson about creating a console that is hard to develop for.

This is to be expected really. It's PS3. A b!tch to work for! But I don't care because I'm getting it on my PC.

I can remember ShadowMoses saying that FC3 will be superior on PS3 since it was shown in Sony's E3 (I thought it will be superior too). Looks like he'll be very upset about this.

It's so good not be a consolite. If PS3 is my primary platform, I would get pissed about this.

No he will just claim PS3 has the best version against all facts. Same like he did with Red Dead Redemption

Yeah, I just wish he would use some logic.

In this thread he would probably say "Nah, PS3 version is superior because of exclusive content", and the game's performance is much more important to me. I don't give a damn about exclusive content! I just want a well-built game. Therefore his standard must be really low.

But again, I'm getting it on my PC, so screw consoles.

Talking about the PC version and additional content: is there going to be mod support ?

Played the PC version at Eurogamer, I guess this is why they were showing that version.

Still, it didn't look amazing. Maybe it wasn't on max settings.

The PS3 is known to have a little screen tear in some games, like seen on Dishonored, Skryim and others, but sometimes have a TINY bit crisper models and environments. I have to look hard to see the differences on either system so it's really on what you want to play more. I prefer 360 and others don't. I guess my comment is pretty neutral.

As for the game itself, I personally think it looks pretty awesome. I hope to pick it up at launch, but maybe wait until Christmas.

I don't know yet.

Personally, I never intend of using mods unless it's a flight simulator.

further proof that the 360 and ps3 truly are the HD twins. They are equal in power and ability. For shared multiplats, whichever version got the ground-up development will have the superior version to the system getting ported to.

Speaking of which, I just saw the DF comparison for Dishonored. It's a solid tie between the console versions, according to them.

I'll still get it on PS3. Regardless, visual difference between versions will, as usual, be very minimal. Only certain games do I buy on 360.

Me too, along with the sure to be vastly superior PC version. Cant help but support Sony.

Why? Everyone says they are hurting financially. I buy Pc/console versions frequently if they game is good enough and add on when games go on sale for cheap, why not.

Why support Sony, did they give you a free PS3, do they pay your bills? I guess I will never get why people feel they should support a company that they don't work for or own.

I'll wait until the game actually comes out first, I'll let other sites like GS/IGN etc....make the call, if they say there is a difference then there is.

I doubt the findings of this article currently, this happens everytime a new multiplat is coming out, fanboys find some dumb article that overexaggerates things to make themselves feel less insecure about their system.

Hope it's great though, we will see when the game is actually released.
