By Daniel Chubb - Dec 22, 2010

When it comes to Mass Effect 2, we have been reporting updates as soon as we get them. So far we have brought you the release date for the PS3, we reported the news of the demo being available and more recently about the PS3 version of ME2 using the Mass Effect 3 engine.

We have also revealed that Mass Effect 3 will be coming to the PS3 as well as the Xbox 360. Putting all of that aside, we wanted to show you a screenshot comparison for Mass Effect 2 between the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. There is an article over at that has a really cool way of doing a comparison using a slider bar, you can view it here.

    wrong. i've played it on both systems and it looks better on the ps3. those are the worst screenshots i've ever seen and they do the game no justice

  • PpWarMaster

    omg what a lie iam not a fanboy but this looks ridulous for me the "ps3" shoots are maybe from the pc low seting version

  • Eric

    Yeah, but the screens are taken from a demo! So the graphics obviously will be better in the final version! (Afterall, the Playstation 3 is running on the Mass Effect 3 engine!)


    well to be honest, graphics will obviously be better, but the gameplay will be the exact same. no point doing all these comparisons, if you really want a review on the game you may aswell search for the 360 review seeing as it's the same game. Naturally, ps3 will look better cos it's blue ray. don't really need a blog about it, do you ? this is Krazynut, putting 'SENSE' into your senseless minds.

    they actually messed up on sheperds face comparison coz its supposed to be the other way around. the ps3 version is far more detailed than the xbox version. check out mass effect 2 videos for ps3 at to see you game comparison side by side.

  • Steve-o

    Why are no actual in-game screens being used in this comparison? Seems a pretty useless thing to do.

  • low

    All that hype and the xbox screens look better.

    Funny, I've played ME2 several times on 360 now(On a 42 inch 1080p HDTV) and it looks nothing like the 360 shots used in this 'comparison'. In fact, it looked more like the PS3 shots being used. Funny that. It's already been confirmed the PS3 version looks better(Though has a slightly choppier performance rate) than the 360 version. Both versions however, remain vastly inferior to the PC version of the game.

    "However if a really good WW2 airwar game like Blazing Angels came out on PS3"

    Blazing Angels DID come out on PS3, as has every other WW2 'airwar' game that has also come out on 360.

  • Personally I prefer XBox just has amore ruggard,earthy appeal for my liking.However if a really good WW2 airwar game like Blazing Angels came out on PS3,Icould be won over.

  • They seem to have made a bit more effort on the XBOX than the PS3.
