    What is with 360 versions of multiformat games getting the better hand?

    It could be a multitude of things.

    • Developers have had longer with the X360
    • M$ is Bribing them with $$
    • M$ is bribing them with $$$
    • M$ is bribing them with $$$$
    • M$ requires some sort of Live on all games
    • Developers have had longer with XBL and probably have pre-written integration code

    All could be valid but M$ has a reputation for Bribing companies.

    Well, in a few areas I think the 360 excels over the Ps3.

    -The Xenon cpu design is easier to program than Cell.

    -Live has been 'live' (no pun intended) since 11/02...nearly 5 years; PSN is still in infancy.

    -360 installed userbase is larger, obviously because it launched a year earlier, but I also think because of price

    I don't agree with that. MS is suspicious of bribing no more than Sony is IMO. Other than paying for the GTA4 episodic content whereas Sony either didn't want to pay up at all or didn't want to pay that much. Do you think Sony isn't guilty of it themselves though? GTA3 was a Sony exclusive for 1 year (before PC version) and 2 years (before Xbox version). I'm sure that wasn't free. ;)

    ^ Graphically the game is meant to be superior on the 360 too. So maybe you should add GPU to that list too.

    I think at their cores, the gpus are similar in power (or, so it's reported as being that way). But that coupled with the cpu I think is where the Ps3 has its difficulties. Ps3 caters towards inefficient raw power, 360 is efficient weaker power.

    I'm not trying to rag on the system, but they certainly didn't make it easy to develop for, and not only that but also Microsoft's XNA development team/platform has been touted as being very friendly and easy to use. Those are comments we've all read straight from the developer's mouths...:eek:

    Brains vs brawn, the timeless philosophical question. ;)

    edit woot just noticed today is my 1yr MR anniversary :D

    Good to hear. The only traditional fighter I really got into was Soul Calibur. I might give this a chance. Online should give good competition.

    Kida similar, but the 360 gpu has that chip that gives AA to games without using overhead to the cpu.

    Also the fact that the memory can be dynamically assigned so that it can access more that 256mb gives it a little boost over the ps3's gpu.

    Sony doesn't pay/Bribe companies for exclusivity.

    No wonder they're losing exclusives this gen round! Games are costing more to produce, I don't blame developers for accepting bribes :cool:

    And now they're reaping what they've sown.

    While good to know....doesn't really matter to me...I want games on the system I buy. As long as MS doesn't buy the whole market(won't happen) then I think this is fine.

    I see it as, funding the creative skills of the dev.

    Oblivion looks much better on the PS3 vs the 360 though.

    It's all about the devs having more time to polish.

    R6 for the PS3 looks exactly like R6 for the xbox...no difference to me. I think we will see improved graphics as devs get use to the system...look at ninja Gaiden: sigma

    The darkness looks the same to me as well....I hear a lot on the web about the PS3 version has framerates issues...where?! not the game I played.

    I'm not really checking for what looks slightly better...as long as I get it in my hands and its kick arse.

    I think it's a combination of:

    Microsoft bribing
    + XBox 360 dev kits have been available longer
    + More people have 360's so developers target that one first and make the PS3 port later
    + 360's easy to develop for so they make 360 games and port to PS3 later.


    Kind of like how most people had PS2 so all games were developed for PS2 first then ported to the other systems last time around. Except 360 and PS3 are much more alike and the 360 actually has a better GPU and it's hard to optimize for Cell to get better CPU performance out of PS3, so the PS3 ports look equal or worse.

    Cause devs had a year.

    You're right, it is all about having more time. And if they start on the 360 version first and aim for the same release date, the PS3 port falters.

    Dude, come on man...you don't really believe that. And we all know it. I mean, I know this must piss you off as a Ps3 owner, but let's get real. :rolleyes:

    Yeah that's true I guess. I re-bought Oblivion for the PS3 just because of that.

    But I wonder if the 360 version had an extra year of development, and both it and the PS3 version came out at the same time....... then which would have been better ? That would be a far more interesting result.

    The EGM was surely finalized to print weeks ago, this was unveiled straight from Sega three days ago.

    Sorry man ;)

    It still wouldn't surprise me if it were not included. It doesn't show as "online" on sega's site. This may be a online outlet putting words in a developers mouth or misunderstanding/assuming, something that happens all too regularly.
