Dead Rising 2: PS3 vs. Xbox 360

Following on from our Dead Rising 2 review roundup today, we wanted to expand more on one of the reviews that looks at the Xbox 360 vs. PS3 verisons in detail, this EuroGamer article can be seen here.

If you check out the link above you can see a two page article which puts the PS3 and Xbox 360 side-by-side, here you can see identical screenshots from each platform and even a video showing framerates and general performance.

In this article we will summarize EuroGamer’s findings, on the whole it looks as if the Xbox 360 is better, shadows and lighting are far superior and the 30fps cap ensures smooth gameplay, whereas the uncapped PS3 version suffers from screen tear.

The PS3 version does cope better when there are a lot of zombies in an outdoor environment, whereas the Xbox 360 can sometimes struggle, however this is pretty much the only time the PS3 excels.

EuroGamer also suggest that the native resolution of the PS3 release is in fact just 1024×576, which has been upscaled to 720p, whereas the Xbox 360 version runs at a native resolution of 720p, this is sometime noticeable in these screens.

To conclude it seems as if the Xbox 360 version does have the edge, that said 95% of gamers probably wouldn’t notice the PS3 versions slight imperfections.

Do you own both consoles? If so, has EuroGamer’s comparison convinced you to buy the Xbox 360 version?

It's always better to go with the X360 version, just for the fact that Xbox Live is a much bigger and more active community.

You will still be able to find a game on Live in two years, where as on PSN and PC it's doubtful. Also, servers get shut down all the time on PSN and PC (so you can't play them on-line, period), where it rarely happens on X360.


well i have both xbox and ps3 .. I dont get the point the point of these comparisons .. and the end of the day its basically exactly the same game , its like comparing your left hand to your right hand . there just no point ?

What it realy boiles down to is that programing for the 360 is exactly the same as pc, in other words they know all the little secrets to make a game run smoothly, ps3 on the other hand requires that devs take the time to learn the hardware (and in reality it would be better for the develpoers in the long run) but capcom realy does seem to be telling us ps3 owners that our buisness in unappreciated, or maybe the fact they put it out on ps3 was just a cash grab to try and stimulate their slipping sales.


naaah same history fucking port, is the same fucking history, why they didn't a good job, ps3 is obviously the best console i mean in the harware cpu graphics etc, even in the online, but the 360 is the best in ram

screw the x-box ,it burns up,then laseres the disc,and the red rings are super annoying also,why would anyone pay to play online ,ps3 is really the better consule and i bet the small imperfections arent even anything to care about.


Well it should be no surprise….these devs have given the 360 two exclusive episodes….its an old 360 exclusive anyways.

They obviously didn’t take the time to make the game as good as it could be.

Not really a concern to me after playing through the first episode on 360 I wasn’t really impressed.

Even with that…these developers should stay exclusive rather than making a subpar port….same goes for u square enix ..(crappy ffxiii)..

Either way…non story to me
