Castlevania Lord of Shadows: PS3 Vs Xbox 360 Screenshot Comparison

 

By Posted 6 Oct 2010, 03:35

For those of you who are planning to pick up Castlevania Lord of Shadows on either the Xbox 360 or PS3, we have some screenshot comparison images for you to take a look at.

The screenshots come to us courtesy of LensOfTruth, and they were taken from the demo build of the game, meaning that this might not be the final retail version released.

Anyway, there are a collection of images for you to look at, each comparing the same background on the two different platforms. You’ll find the images over at LensofTruth, you have to hover your mouse over the image in the bottom right corner, to see the relevant platform differences.

Unless I’m going blind, there really isn’t too many differences between the two. Perhaps the Xbox 360 version features brighter colors, but you could then argue that the PS3 visuals are more realistic towards the ‘dark’ feel to the game. There is nothing major to tell these two apart – which is obviously a great thing for gamers who own both consoles.

Take a look at the images yourself and let us know your thoughts on them. Can you spot any differences?

    Reviews and reports have confirmed that the final builds of both games are pretty much identical visually, howeverm the PS3 version performs better apparently and the Xbox version comes on two discs. The game was lead developed on PS3 though, so neither of these things is a huge surprise.

    Why pull the screenshot comparison article BS for this game in particular and no other that's come out in recent times exactly?

  • Coolldude

    Ha ha ha !!! the PS3 version performs away better than the crapbox360…..

  • Mac Russ

    yep its needless to say but the PS3 kills the XBOX360 i wouldve been highly disapointed to see a PLAYSTATION Classic come back better on a different system.

    • gore

      eh hem. castlevania is an nes classic.

  • Lucas

    Played both demos and didn't notice any difference regarding the performance. Blind Sony fanboys are funny.

  • fenn

    a playstation classic-numpty! can you say NES?

  • Mike

    lawl, fanboys are hilarious

  • Taglia

    for the everidots fanboys castlevania is not a "sony plaistation classic" but born ages before, with the oldest gen, the 8/16 bit… so… please… don't give breath to your mouth for free… and the version of game are the same, two difference… colours and format… BD (one disc much slow loading) o DVD (2 disc but faster loading time…

    fanboys… bah…

  • CAROLINAS B3ST

    haha you guys are lame. Yeah sony has better graphics but not to the point that we really give to shits about it, thats why we a xbox. And sonys online multiplayer cant even compare to xbox live. Hands down no argument. Better online players reside within xbox live. Not all games even support in game chat on the Playstation network, there is no party chat, you cant stream netflix without having the disc in the console, there is no voice messages or video messages, and you dont get awesome free videos like IGN Strategize with miss fine ass jessica chobot. So playstation fans you can keep your only a tad bit better graphics. Us xbox owners care more about having a good time online with our friends!

      recent ps3 update. no need for a netflix disc, and i get to keep my 8 bucks a month that you spend to play with "better players". I own both systems and let me tell you, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on ps3 has FAR more skilled players on it than on XBL. And try playing some Metal Gear Online before you bash PSN. Not to mention, I GET TO KEEP MY 8 BUCKS A MONTH.

      THE CLASSIC GAMES THAT EVERYBODY LOVE ARE ON PS3,IS BACKWARD COMPATIBLE GIRL! JUST THE PRICE OF THE PS3 TELLS YOU THAT IS BETTER!FURTHERMORE YOU CAN DO MORE THINGS WITH IT!ALL THE GAMES MOSTLY THE XBOX HAVE NOW WERE PART OF THE HISTORY OF NINTENDO AND SONY AND SEGA!I AM AGREE ON MUTLIPLAYER ONLINE IS BETTER BUT WHAY ABOUT WHEN YOU PLAY A GAME WITH60 PLAYERS OR 200? CAN XBOX DO THAT?NOPE I DO IT ! i GOT XBOX IS GREAT CONSOLE BUT THE PLAYSTATION IS A CLASSIC AND CLASSIC IS ALWAYS POPULAR!FOR THESE REASON PEOPLE WHO KNOWS ABOUT OLD GAMES THEY LIKE TO GET A PS3 CAUSE THEY WONT GET DISSAPONTED WITH NEW GAMES THAT THE ONLY THING THEY DO IS COPY THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE OLDER ONES!

  • Amenophis

    ps3 is the best hardware, but 360 has much ram than ps3, sony never die bitches !!!

    • guest

      Actually the XBox is the more powerful system. Faster processors and more ram.

  • 1st_Luis

    Well, just some points I felt the need to say.

    Some1 said that BD has a slower loading than DVD. Wel thats CRAP. Even though Ur 360 may read its crappy dvd at faster speeds (Talkin about 2X. 4X, 8X, etc.) the bit rate is much slower than a BD. Even when PS3 BD drive is only 2X lecture, that is WAY FASTER than a f***** DVD.
    So I don't really care if Ur DVD spins faster than my BD.
    It's like if I say than a CD (52X) is faster than a DVD (16X). The cd may take…. 2 min to burn while on the DVD you take 4 min to burn. But 700MiB is nothing, compared to 4.38GiB. Well, at this point U may get it.

  • Luis

    Faster processor…. I really don't care which is faster, but which is more powerfull. Ho do U know which, well, it depends of the capabality of the proccesor to PROCESS.
    Lets syat that the 360 has a proccesor of 2 cores & 8GHZ while the PS3 has 8 cores & 2GHz.
    Well, that means the 360 can do…. 2*8,000,000,000=16,000,000,000 instructions per second
    While the PS3 can do……………………8*2,000,000,000=16,000,000,000 intructions per second
    Well, now, we all know a crappy 360 doesn't have a procesor of 8GHz (Immpposible) & that the PS3 has a proccesor way faster than 2GHz. Again, make the numbers.
    I know a processor can't only be measured by that, but I don't care if the 360 has a "faster" processor.
    Besides, have U ever heard a rumor of a cluster of 360? (Even a rumor) On the PS3 hand…. well, do some research.

  • 1st_Luis

    About the online communitiy…. I'd really love to have Xvoice chat in PS3, but it only seems a dream now.
    But NO WAY, & I mean it, NO WAY Im gonna pay for playing online.
    Besides, if U say that most games doesn't have voice support, do Ur homework. Its called MAG. At least 128 persons hearing 1 guys voices, leading them to victory or defeat. THAT IS AN ONLINE EXPERIENCE. If you have a chance, get it graphically its not the best game, but even though its so good.

  • 1st_Luis

    About the RAM…. PS3's RAM is crap. Im not sure about 360's, but Im pretty sure its the same or even worse. No videogame console nowaday has a descent RAM. It not needed in most of the cases.

    For every1 else, who didn't say a thing about console's "power".
    I think that every game will look better in the console they were developed for. Lets face it.
    So Castlevania: Lords od Shadow is meant for PS3. I U have the chance to decide for which console U want it, get it for PS3.
    If U don't, well, its the same game. Still buy it. It's a good game. Maybe not the best castlevania ever (SotN for my taste), but still a good one.

  • 1st_Luis

    About classic… As far as I rememeber the 1vst one was for NES. But I also remember GB, GBA, N64, PS, PS2, Xbox, DS….. well, maybe every console (Except Virtual Boy, lol). Even Sega Saturn. (I think the better ones are in 2D)

    BTW, I would never buy something like Gears of War for PS3. That is a game developed for 360. & again, I would never buy Metal Gear Solid 4 for 360. Besides of the numer of discs (Google it, lol), that is meant for PS3.

    L8er!
    Have a nice day & thx for reading my ridicolus speach n.n

  • robo

    speak to any games developer and they will tell you which is the easiest to develop for and which is the most powerful, I'll give you a clue fanboys its not the PS3

    • Stickandmove

      That's just simply not true, no other way to say it. The Xbox is actually becoming harder to develop for, and being dropped by developers because it's long in the tooth and basically hit the ceiling of its capability in relation to hardcore games. There are certainly a lot more exclusives scheduled for the PS3 than the 360 for this year, and that's very telling. More and more developers are saying that they prefer to develop on the PS3 and that it's partially due to the PS3's robust hardware that has yet to be pushed to its full potential.

      Don't believe me? Why do you think there's SO much focus from MS on the Kinect; a device that caters to casual gamers with no commitment necessary? It's because MS knows they need to make a profit, and by adding a party peripheral they can cater to the casual gamer. These people (who most likely already own a Wii) are happy with shallow games they can play in between rounds of beer pong. That being the case, don't expect much more out of the 360 in terms of hardcore games, especially since MS is now in the business of milking it.
