CoD:MW2 Comparison

11-13-2009, 09:40 AM

Wow, the PS3 and 360 version look identical with a few points giving to the 360 over the PS3 version, but not enough in my book to make or break a buy on it over the other.

The PC version...also looks identical with a better color (any one think this time around the 360 version looks more washed out than the PS3 version?)

This game had zero optimization for the PC. Sad. On uber high settings in CoD4, you'd have textures and objects that weren't present in the 360/PS3 version.

At least it seems they fixed the texture swap issue that plagued all CoD games. Haha.

As someone whom has played campaign all the way through on both systems I am telling you straight up the 360 is better. Never trust these comparisons as they rarely give an accurate account of what’s really going on. I was replaying portions on the PS3 and could remember in my head that they looked way better on 360 with no side to side comparison.

Here are 3 areas I remember off the top of my head.
1) PS3 has jaggies in several cut scenes
2) Shadows on PS3 have pixelated edges throughout the game biggest difference
3) Night Vision is also very Pixelated to the point that I would keep it off during gameplay.

In the end I played though and will be again on Veteran I just figured I'd point it out, to anyone whom has a choice on which to pick. I picked PS3 because of friends but its still not working for me so I think I'm gonna go ahead and order a copy for my 360.

360 version is better for the fact that you could play online right off the bat and it never had any down time..

As for graphics and game play I checked out COD4 on both systems and they appeared identicle to me...

I could see a big difference and if they say they adjusted them all for brightness they either screwed up the PS3 or it looks worse easily to me when you see them side by side. The PC version looked the best with the best contrast and detail.

PC version looks great. Praying for a Steam christmas sale for it because there's no way I'm paying $60.

Added AA and FSAA in the PC version is all it really has over the console versions.

Just upping the resolution to 1920x1080 eliminates most of the jaggies.

Color saturation is the only other perk, aside that MP isn't what IW promised it to be.

But the difference in color saturation is HUGE in this game.

But the difference in color saturation is HUGE in this game.

Still not enough to make up for the gimped MP.

I wonder if people are still being absorbed by MW2, not many of my friends have commented on it. I think only two got it day 1 for 360.
