The ground texture on the PS3 version looks a tad worse, and may be lacking the bump-mapping that the 360 version has. Need better comparison shots to make a proper conclusion.

The textures in the first PS3 pic are just hideous.

They both look bad, but 360 version does a little bit better. But, both aren't really up to next gen calibur. And, even the Darkness devs stated that 360 games will have more texture in memory. So, yea.

The 360 version definetly looks better texture wise, but at any rate this will most definetly end up in a couple people's collections. You ever wonder who buys the games you don't?

They are out there!

Yeah I know PS3 has less memory but it doesn't even look like it has enough to look decent at all.

Come on now, there are games on the PS3 that blow this out of the water.

No PS3 images...I guess it's been linked wrong.

Only one word for this... Marvel-ous! :)

no anti-aliasing for the PS3 shots either. You would think it would be easier to implement on the 3 than the 360, with the 360 requring tiling afterall (unless they are using predicated tiling, or whatever it was called where the driver handles it).

Early days of course. No doubt the 360 version will be out first as well. May well be effort is being put into it as priority now.

It has nothing to do with the systems, as direct-feed screenshots almost never have AA applied to them. Also AA is significantly easier to do on the 360, as the hardware has 10mb of RAM built in SPECIFICALLY for AA purposes and nothing else, whereas the PS3 does not. Both systems can do AA no problem, but the 360 takes less of a performance hit because of this extra RAM.

No this is another.

The other will be an exclusive, as MS have the rights.

head over to www.gametrailers.com to see the next generation version in motion. It looks gorgeous.
Commented on 2006-07-27 22:41:14
*sigh* Looks better than the last shots, and looks WAAAY better in motion, but still nothing special visually.

THe subject itself is sure to drive sales, no doubt.

This just looks like the Xmen game they made

Why is Blade even in it? I never thought he was a main Marvel character, but I guess because of the movie/show they decided to
Commented on 2006-07-27 22:47:21
There are 140 playable characters in it.

So you can expect a few more, 'lesser known' ones.

Ps Blade is quite a popular Marvel Hero, with his own series.

    GriftGFX The biggest difference to me is how your character POV changes. I don't mind third person games it just changes engagements a lot when people can see around corners and over high cover etc. (1 Hour ago)
