Bayonetta PS3 vs Xbox 360: PS3 Port Disaster



The suspicions that the PS3 port of Bayonetta would be markedly inferior to the Xbox 360 original have been born out, with comparisons of the demos revealing that the graphics on the PS3 are noticeably degraded, with muddy textures, fewer polygons and lower framerates…

The comparisons, with the Xbox 360 on top; you will likely need to view them full size and side by side to see the differences:



The PS3 port has been handled independently by Sega, and it seems Platinum Games is keen not to take credit for the port as Sega is being branded very heavily as the party responsible, a decision Platinum will doubtless be regretting.

Xbox 360 fans are delightedly celebrating the minor differences as a battle won in the lately especially hard fought console wars.

The superior Xbox 360 version is available for pre-order now.

    I guess they're just feeling sorry for the 360 because how much it fails today...

    You called it "port disaster" and then "minor differences". Gotta love the bias on this site.

    You wish. All the games so far have looked exactly the same on both platforms. It's like comparing Arial to Helvetica. Nobody worth giving a shit about would see the difference. There's a maximum amount of detail the human eye can see, and with 1080p HDTV we've already exceeded that.
    And plus, who gives a shit about how the PS3 version looks. Even if it did look better the gameplay will still suck because of its crappy controller built from the 90s made specifically for minimal comfort and utility.

    More like buy PC for $800 dolars and spend at least 3 years playing games at far better quality than consoles. Then you upgrade your video card for ~$200 and you spend at least another 3 years with it.

    Oh and that's just if you want to play at max settings. Right now most games that are recently released run comfortably on 5+ old video cards and CPUs.

    Now the problem with PC is that games are almost exclusively released for Windows, so you may have to shell $50 for an OEM OS, unless you know how to acquire one without paying.

    The only drawback of PC gaming there ever was, is that many great games are released on console only out of fear of piracy.
    But then again, the same holds true the other way around if you like RTS/MMO/FPS games.

    Anyway, there is no reason for fanboyish PC bashing. Consoles are an obsolete gaming model that should have ended with the age of PS2/Dreamcast. They have absolutely no advantage over a PC. If you think you are paying less than a brand new $800 PC by adding the cost of X-Box live and DLC (which is free on the PC), you are deluded.
    Oh yeah, PCs don't go belly up in <1 year. My previous PC is currently 7+ years old and has been working almost daily for all this time.

    The so called "NextGen" consoles have been largely obsolete for nearly 3 years compared to PCs. I fail to see what is so superior to them, unless you are too damn stupid to use one.

    Looking at the screen shots and video.

    - The PS3 used might not have its contrast / black levels set correctly. That alone can make both versions look much more similar.

    - Some textures on the PS3 have a bit less detailed... but in movement, hard to tell the difference.

    - But in the ViDEO clip, the PS3 has Anti-Aliasing, so I'm not seeing the JAGGIES that are easily visible on the 360 version. So perhaps this is causing some of the issues.

    Personally, I'm okay with both versions, just calibrate the PS3 which can be done on the console end or the game itself.

    Technically, the 360 has a bit more powerful ATI GPU over the PS3's nVidia version.

    Sega got lazy and didn't do it the way they should have. Nothing more, nothing less. Xbox360 can only win in the "Has so many FPS games you think it's a PC" department..

    each to their own, ps3 has far more potential but as it stands 360 has a better catalog of titles. where the hell is gran turismo anyone? plus blu ray is a plus. if i were to get anyone one of these consoles which i won't by the way, i would get a ps3.

    I prefer my 360 over PS3, but it's bullshit either console should get a worse port. Customers on "both sides" should get what they paid for, not sloppy-ass ports like this.

    Know what you need to stop making articles like this without proper facts, The PS3 screen shots are not from an HDMI source and are from the factory default settings for display.

    Conversion from component cables makes the screens look like that muddy look.

    Well, then you can go watch this:

    Screen tearing galore, booya!

    Also, may I ask why the default display settings for the PS3 seem to suck donkey dick while the 360's don't? I mean, what's to be gained by not configuring the system to its optimal settings for modern displays, anyways?

    Should have gone the Sigma way: release it one year later with additional stuff and probably less gore and/or nudity.

    Both PS3 owners and Sony itself would have been happier.

    Sour-graping too much.

    The butthurt of console gamers goes both ways. Sony fans butthurting Xbox360 fans and vice-versa. That means they're both gay for fucking each other in the ass.

    PS3 version has inferior textures, an unstable mess of a frame rate and suffers from censorship.

    And yet it'll still outsell the 360 version (four copies worldwide compared to two, it's a Platinum Games title afterall, nobody gives a shit about anything they make - Okami, God Hand, MadWorld etc.)

    If I bought this game for a "Castlevania Fetish Thrill" I think I will then buy it from the "X-box 360" bargain bin.

    The only question is: "Will there be ANY X-360s available on the 'used' market or will they all expire via RROD?"

    A PS3 at least, WORKS. My PS1 - WORKS. My PS2 - WORKS. Turn them on 10 years from now, they will all still WORK.

    My V1 Xbox - Crashes right and left, ten times as often as my 486DX50 PC did when I tried to render movie screen sized images and browse the net at the same time on Win 3.1 or play "Die by the Sword" on a P200 with no good graphics card. Sometimes I have to fight with it to play a non scratched Music CD...

    However, "Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath" is an incredible game so lush and beautiful I wish I could enter it. Even made me like the idea of Westerns which despite being in a 'Western' state I don't really like that genre that much. And "Elder Scrolls: Morrowind" is similarly enticing...

    I guess if they were women...

    The PS series would be reasonably attractive bookish women who are very stable and a bit bossy and spartan, but could do a job, do their chores, be super loyal, remind you to do your part but be supportive and not judgmental as long as you were trying, help with the kids and have regular efficient sex. You'd sometimes wish she'd have bigger tits or do other efficient missionary position, but you could totally trust her and she'd love you. And suggesting a "Boob Job" or a "Different Position" would just make her mad, you'd know it without asking it, so you wouldn't dare.

    The X-Box series would be super gorgeous fashion model women with lots of friends and wild impulses who could teach every pervert from DeSade to Chester M. a lesson or two. "Don't get mad at me for drugging your drink, dahling, it made you a man possessed. I haven't been fucked that hard since I was a grade schooler, should I tell you...?" They'd be taking you to the beach one day, then impulsively flying you to Paris to fuck on Jim Morrison's grave, and what was that job you thought you had...? But you used to have a lot on your credit cards... And they'd either and all at once randomly leave you for some beefy psycho then come back crying and demand you fight him because he wanted to pimp her... Or she'd suddenly crash and be a basket case of depression, and you'd be trying to get her not to kill herself and ignoring the fire of all your possessions in the bathtub... Or she'd go into "RROD" mode and turn into a "Lorena Bobbitt" horror show chick chasing you around with a carving knife... Then she'd be back to (Ab) normal and go on her usual schedule...

    The issue is not so much the graphics as it is the god damn ANIMATION. IT's tearing EVERYWHERE, no vsync, horrible!
    Even the FMVs and title screen (which i suspect is part fmv too) have tearing ffs!

    Poor PS3, being treated like an ass since day 1 (when price tag was announce); and poor XBOX 360, mock by the problems of rush design.

    Holy crap, I just notice a pattern: Sega Saturn VS Sony Playstation; history repeating itself, but this time Sega is ready for old revenge.

    I really don't have high hopes for this game. When the main character in a game is a sexy woman, it's usually a sign that the game sucks and that the game company is hoping that a bunch a kids will buy it for the fanservice and not care about the rest of the game. With a character that's as fanservicey as this it makes me feel that there is going to be a huge fatally flaw with this game.

    People who argue 360 vs PS3, are just to poor to own both, and that is sad. Glad I'm rich. I would hate to have to buy used games, and stand in line with food stamps.
