Just wondering with the upgrade in graphics if the game is actually running in native 720p, because Reach was sub-HD and upscaled.

What are some good games for the 360 that don't require too much skill in order to successfully play? Like, a game anyone can just enjoy without spending so much time learning the mechanics of it?

Was finally able to play DOA5 (on the Xbox 360) and came into this weird glitch. Not sure if this is normal or not. My 360 is new (slim) and seems to be working well except for this glitch.

The glitch is that DOA5 will not save my settings. It happens when I change the language to Japanese. I have not tried other settings yet. When I back out of the menu after changing the language to Japanese, it says "Saving", and works fine...until I eject the game and put it back in. Then it resets back to English. 

Another strange thing I noticed is that, every time I insert the game it tells me to select a storage device. I click "ok" and no storage device pops up for me to select - it just goes straight to the main menu, almost as if it chose for me or something.

There is also a popup that says something like "there will be a saving icon at the bottom when the game is saving so don't do anything while it's saving" or something. 

This issue is only happening to me with DOA5. I'm wondering what's going on!

[QUOTE="HOD4"]

I have a some technical questions regarding the PS3/360.

1. For multiplatform games, why does the 360 generally load games faster? I bought Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for the PS3, but have read that the 360 loads the game noticeably faster than the PS3. Is this because the PS3 hard drive is slower?

2. I understand that the 360 cannot output true 1080p (only upscales it), but can the 360 output true 720p? I have not seen the 360 running in 720p (just 1080p), but from what I've seen, the PS3's 720p output gives better picture than the 360's 1080p output.

3. Why are so many good Japanese-made games landing on the PS3 instead of the 360? Games like House of the Dead 4, Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles/Darkside Chronicles, etc.?

4. Why is the Xbox 360 generally more popular and considered the main gaming platform of choice for this generation?

5. How come games look similar in visual quality between the PS3 and 360 even though PS3 uses Blu-ray and 360 uses DVD? I thought Blu-ray was supposed to make images look better?

Thanks.

You have to be level 10 to post here, and you're obviously flamebaiting. If your thread is locked, don't make another, f*** off. Now, mods, please lock, AGAIN.

I didn't know I had to be a certain level. And I'm not "flamebaiting".

That's very rude of you to say "f*** off".

Graphics are only a minor upgrade to T6. I like the motion blur, but again the console game looks nothing like the arcade version :(Ready4Pickup

I agree. The clarity of the picture is much better than Tekken 6, but the graphics themselves are only a minor upgrade. I've only played the arcade version of Tekken 6, but I would have to assume the arcade version of TTT2 looks better in some way.

The stages are ok, most of them are boring.

Totally agree! There are a few stages that are really interesting like the flopping fish on the boat, the rainbow stage, etc. but many are boring like you said. Tekken 6, in my opinion, had more interesting stages overall.

So the only positive things I can say is:

- I like the crazy stuff that happens in the combot training :)
- Tag moves are fun, and you can do huge combos
- The roster is awesome

But overall it's almost the same as T6

I think the roster is one of the best I've seen in a fighting game. I would prefer if everything were unlocked from the beginning though like most arcade games. It does feel like Tekken 6, but it's obviously an upgrade. TTT2 is like the Super Smash Bros. of the Tekken universe!

Overall I agree with the score Gamespot gave it.

Console hardware has to evolve at some point. If it didn't, we'd all still be playing on the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis.1PMrFister

True, but each console generation, we get a more "definitive" experience (or closer to the "ideal" experience). For example, this generation (with the PS3 and 360) is much more definitive (closer to the ideal) than last generation because all games are now displayed in high definition and have a nice amount of graphical detail (textures, etc.) that are a significant leap over last generation.

Back in the Super Nintendo days, games did not have a level of detail and realism that would be considered a realistic experience. Back then it may have been cutting edge, but not "definitive" or "ideal" or "realistic enough".

I think we're at a point where we've arrived in the sense that the hardware now (PS3) has enough power to run games in high definition with detailed graphics, which is what I think of as a good gaming experience. Of course, next generation there will be even more realism and higher resolutions, but for the time being, I actually enjoy where we're at (all games in HD with a good amount of detail).

I'm not saying I don't want the PS4 or that innovation is not necessary, I'm just saying that at this time, I don't see a need for one considering the level games are at now. Also, depending on which kinds of games you're into, there may be no (or very little) benefit of a system with better graphics hardware. One major benefit of better graphics hardware would be true 1080p gaming.
