Skyrim PS3 Vs Xbox 360: Shock as PS3 wins in video comparison?

Following on from our earlier article which identified possible texture and freezing issues in the recently released Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game, we now have something for console owners. You can now debate on which version looks better, thanks to an early Xbox 360 Vs PS3 video comparison that we’ve found.

Before you take a look at the video below, you should be aware that prior to release, Bethesda had been reluctant to show off the PS3 version of the game, seemingly prefering to show the public the Xbox 360 version, with even the PC version taking a spectators seat.

Now though, we’re thankful that this comparison video courtesy of AllGamesBeta has shown the PS3 version side-by-side along side its console counterpart. Usually we would take a neutral stance and let you guys draw your own conclusions on graphics comparisons, but after watching this video, it does appear that the PS3 version has the edge, with much better lighting effects, sharper textures and brighter colors – would you agree with us here or strongly disagree?

That is just my personal opinion and we’re guessing that some of you will probably say that the Xbox 360 version gets the edge. Here’s one rumor that we’re hearing though that you may want to take into consideration – we have seen some feedback online that the Xbox 360 version actually contains a bug, in that if you install the game to the HDD disc, you won’t be able to enjoy Skyrim with hi-res textures, whereas if you don’t install you will. Again, these are just rumors to bear in mind if you are a bit suspicious on how the Xbox 360 version looks in comparison to the PS3 version shown in this video.

Watch it for yourself and tell us what version you think looks better. Perhaps those of you with the Xbox 360 version of the game now can chime in on this debate by saying how the game looks on your TV right now.
