I own both, and while some features on PS3 (faces especially) look sharper, I have heard that Batman's cape flows more realistically than the PS3's, which cape looks more static than the Xbox. Is it true?

I have it on 360, but I would say PS3 because you can play as the Joker in some challenge maps

ps3 because of those challenges maps you get and the joker.

I've played on both and I didn't notice any difference on the cape. The 360 is slightly sharper then the PS3, and the 360 is a bit darker. It actually looks better on the PS3 because it's not so dark imo. I liked the feel of the PS3 controller for this game then the 360. Haven't touched the Joker stuff yet.

Whatever controller feels better, and if you care about playing as Joker on a few challenge maps.

The man speaks sense.

I really hope people don't make their decisions on the way a cape flows. :x
 
Seriously though, considering the differences in the X360 version and PS3 version (visual wise) are quite negligible, it comes down to either: achievements/trophies, X360 Controller/DS3, and whether or not you want the exclusive Joker content. I haven't played the PS3 version, but all the adverts showing the Joker gameplay make me really want to play it.

I originally thought the PS3 version would be the way to go because of the "challenge rooms as the Joker" bonus.
 But after renting the 360 version for the sake of achievements being > than trophies, I realized how uninterested I was in the challenge rooms and how limited a bonus that really was.
 
Tho if you don't care about trophies or achievements and you are completely console neutral I guess why not get the added feature in the PS3 version?

Don't own a PS3, and I'm sure the joker maps will be released as DLD later down the line and I think the graphics look superb on the 360 (havn't seen PS3 gameplay so I can't say for sure) so... The 360 version.

I'm playing on PS3 right now and it's great. Although like CL60 said, I prefer the DualShock controller. While I can't vouch for the 360 version (I'm sure it's awesome too), I can definitely recommend it  on PS3.

Graphics are superb on both.
Doesn't strike me as a decision maker/breaker for either.

PS3 for Joker. That matters more to me then cape physics tbh :P

Yeah it's a excellent game and if enough people buy this we may, hopefully, get some more great games by Rocksteady.

I don't think you need to worry about that. This game looks to be doing quite well commercially. I'd say Rocksteady has a deal for a sequel in the bag at this point.

PS3, you get 8 Joker challenge maps, about 30 minutes worth of bonus feature videos on the blu-ray, and the graphics look a bit nicer on PS3 than 360. I've played both versions and while not 100% certain I'd wager Rocksteady probably used PS3 as the lead platform in development its that smooth or they actually gave the full effort required to make both versions run at their best for each console.
 
 And personally I find the controls a bit tighter on PS3, but that probably comes more from the fact I like the Dual Shock layout for games like that. Really this is the first PS3 multi-plat that I would absolutely recommend over the 360 version if you have both consoles.
 
Wish more developers would start doing that, its not the PS3 or its hardware that is at fault for PS3 always having the weaker of the two versions of games. That blame always falls solely on the developer and their choice of which platform to lead development on or how much effort they feel like putting into a game so it plays correctly on different hardware.

PS3 just because that is what I got it on and I judge the amount of friends I have based off of video games that I have chosen to buy. And what favorite flavor milkshake they have. STRAWBERRY DAMMIT!

Let's be honest here - The Joker will come to the 360 eventually as paid DLC, it's inevitable. Like Darth Vader. It really comes down to which controller you like more and whether you want the Joker content now or later. Moreso the control, however, since I don't think the Joker thing is that big a deal (And this is coming from an obsessive Joker fan.).

...because realistic cape flow is essential to the game experience, clearly.
 
You should stop worrying about such minor things. If there were any serious issues between the two versions you would have heard about it, but it sounds like its an awesome game however you play it. Assuming you have no problem with either console, free extra content is always good, so i'd go PS3. Sure the Joker stuff might come to the 360 eventually, but that's not even certain, and you can be sure that you'll have to pay for it.

*SPOILER* also at the end of the credits you see Bane grab a box of Titan and the screen goes black, so that probably hints at a sequel.

So no PC fans eh?
*sigh*
Ah well- I'd go for PS3 since it has all that additional stuff.

Playing a game where the characters cape is constantly moving and you constantly have to look at the cape it could get annoying if it glitches.

A think the 360 version looks a little bit better, but the PS3 has a playable Joker.

@HolyCrapItsAdam: I own both consoles, not games. 
#29 Posted by yevinorion (691 posts) -

Visually there's not a whole lot of difference...things like occlusion shadows and cast shadows are different, but realistically...you won't notice these things unless you look for them.
 
I'd say go with whatever system you prefer. Yeah, the PS3 had Joker content, so that can be a deciding factor. One other thing I noticed tho, the 360's default camera seems to be zoomed in more than the PS3 version. That combined with the Joker stuff and the fact that I prefer the PS3 controller for everything except shooters made this a PS3 purchase for me.

I hate to say this but ... neither.
Having played it and watched a friend for several hours I am NOT impressed with this slow paced brawler ...

I have both consoles, but I'm getting it on the PS3 because the JOKER! ahaha

#32 Posted by PercyChuggs (1087 posts) -

I have both consoles, but since my 360 is a ticking time bomb, I got it for PS3.

Vectrex... No seriously, for PS3.
