Tekken 6 PS3 vs Xbox 360: PS3 Victorious!


The release of Tekken 6 on PS3 and Xbox 360 is imminent, and computer graphics experts have decreed that the PS3 version is superior graphically.

Sadly, the experts in question insisted on using Heihachi’s impressive yet geriatric physique to make the comparison, which can be seen below…

With motion blur there is virtually no difference:



However, with motion blur off, visual quality is minutely improved and after much beating about the bush experts prefer the PS3 version:



The shocking inferiority of the Xbox 360 version in detail:


The PS3 version is also said to make full use of the additional 20GB of space allowed by the PS3’s Blu-ray format, although this looks all to have been squandered on shiny pre-rendered CG cutscenes.

Tekken 6 itself is due on both platforms at the end of October.

    Doesn't the 360 have virtually free 4xAA from the eDRAM logic?

    That's a HUGE fucking difference!! Xbox360 is not even worth playing now *sarcasm*

    Srsly it's sucks when PS3 fanboy work's in Xbox team. He would deliberately alter a couple of pixels so other nerd fanboys would shit bricks over this trivial matter.

    I make games for a living (70% graphics engine programming - 14yrs and counting), and every time one of these posts comes up, I am forced to stay off of the comments list, as it's nearly as useless as the 'fuck China' posts. But really... over and over... these posts make me sick. The 360 is _different_ than the PS3. There are reasons it's better, often... and it's also worse a fair bit too. In this specific case, the thing I love is seeing 'net retards with no sense of how this shit works blather over AA vs no AA. Wow, congrats, you are clueless. The PS3's frame-buffer, on most _modern_ displays (aka non CRT) will blur like a MF when it samples from 1024x576... 1280x768 TVs will blur (or just oversample if they don't filter), and 1920x1080 TVs will blur it. Simple as that. So those 'pre-filtered' pixels on the PS3 won't look any better than the X360 _non_ blurred pixels at 1280x768 (x360 will look more crisp, and at that res, sitting at a reasonable distance from the screen, it'll look excellent). On 1920x1080, it'll look approx the same... sharper for sure. Again, not a 'negative'. As bitmaps, the PS3 looks better, coming out of your TV/LCD, they will look more or less the same. Enjoy.

    The Digital Foundry original article went into all this in painful detail. Trouble is nobody cares - what they want is the cut and thrust of console tribalism.

    I use a capture card on my computer and set the fullscreen res to that of the PS3.

    Both screenshots in the last composite image is from the 360 actually. One is with motion blur and the other is without.

    Go here to read the article the images were taken from for the TRUTH. The screenshots in question used in the composite image are the last two in the article.

    Not to mention motion blur is a pretty badass visual effect for when you see the game in motion (redundant, I know) rather than static, far less relevant still screenshots that aren't as good of a comparison method as actual in-game footage is.

    But yeah, we're discussing a game that's being simultaneously released on both platforms, of course a true videogame console will have a better overall performance when compared to a computing server/ movie player hybrid that "only does everything", save for superior looking games with motion blur.

    Who the fuck in their right mind is going to blow up the pictures 500 times to compare pixel complication between the 360 and the PS3.Who gives a shit anymore but lifeless fanbois'?!This comparison bullshit has gotten wayyyyyyy out of hand.I own all three systems and various different handhelds and will be buying the version of Tekken 6 that PLAYS THE BEST, not which one has 50 more pixels of graphic superiority over the other...i'm not that petty or immature as hundreds of thousands apparently are.GET A LIFE!

    I'd love it if they would come out with a comprable PC version of Tekken 6 that my Geforce GTX 295 1792MB video card could show off with.It can and would wipe the floor with both the 360 and the PS3 versions of Tekken 6.....but again..does it REALLY matter? NO!

    ..so you have to zoom to 500% to notice a barely noticeable difference?

    Seriously, who gives a shit? Most people wont see a difference anyways >_>

    No, the edges on the PS3 are more smoother, it doesn't take 500% zoom to notice that, it's just MUCH MORE easier to prove it that way.

    Just look at the PS3 version using MSAAX2 and the 360 does not. The PS3 uses anti-alaising to smooth textures and the 360 doesn't.

    Comparisons to which is better is only going to make me wonder why hell should I buy into this BS out which System is better.

    Sony Playstation 3 is a good system for Japanese men to watch there VA movies in HD and play Video games at the same time.

    Nintedo Wii is a good system for Japanese women to practice there jerking off motions for there future husbands good luck to you ladys.

    Xbox 360 for those any Japanese Otaku who can't get a date.

    Am I supposed to be impressed?

    An extra YEAR of development on PS3?
    Boat loads of money designing super-powered gaming?
    Extra MONTHS boosting graphics?
    Wasting a full TWENTY GIGABYTES smoothing lines?

    Not bad...personally I would have used the memory space for...I don't know...Special areas...new characters...hidden features...a decent storyline...porn...
    but what to I know...I just play the games...what could I know about Improving the quality of the gaming experience?

    after the vesperia beta, they didn't want to piss off more xbots. So they screwed them over, but subtlely this time.
    subliminal messaging to let them know they're still inferior to the ps3.

    haha, i agree with you. i can't tell the difference. but if the difference is a micro meter, thats pretty sad that they had to spend a butt load of more money designing the game on the ps3. wow. this website always TRIES to belittle the xbox 360 because its not japanese. sorry sankakucomplex, xbox has more consoles sold, as well as more games per console sold, as well as innovative features that ps3 copies later on. you have nothing on the xbox 360!! except this micro meter. i love my xbox 360! =D

    Wow! That's a huge difference in graphics! I shit my panties from the shock! My life as a gamer has a new meaning now! (if you didn't get it, I'm talking ironically; after all, it's the same game since Tekken 4 with better graphics, so fucking what?)

    The only real differences I see are that the PS3 version is more colorful, and oddly enough, Heihachi's shoulder is shaped better on the PS3. You would think they'd use the same assets on both versions and just try to make them work on those consoles, but the shoulder in those shots are very visibly different, with the PS3 version looking more natural. Bizarre.

    Experts agree? LOL sorry nobody agrees with this conclusion.

    Why don't you take a look at an "experts" website, at least one of the most consistent, Lens of Truth.

    I think they pretty much say your summary is wrong.

    Another MP game that runs better on the 360, color me surprised.

    The ps3 could have been better. They had to tone down the ps3's quality just to be in line with xbox's crappy hardware that doesn't cut it.

    Check the ones in the arcades. Those are the best and they're run by a ps3's hardware.

    So basically, according to the article, the only way to really justify the PS3 fanboism is to zoom the game to 500%..("Look, see? I told you the PS3 is moar 1337")

    When in reality, no one really gives a rat's ass about how aliased a background object is when you're fighting another character at (hopefully) 60 fps.

    As tekken6 was on ps3 arcade hardware its fairly logical to summise when ported the 360's video card specs may result in slightly different rendering?

    Im pretty sure the 360's gpu is superior to the ps3's as it was custom designed by ati and has more shader pipelines and higher fidelity rendering, the proof lies in the numerous badly ported ps3 versions that were obviously designed from the ground up for 360.. like ghostbusters.

    Not to mention nobody's mentioned the intracasies of the different software engines! I mean who here can go into detail about those platform specific pro's and cons?

    ..cmon troll's back in your cave lol.
