Have we seen the game running on PS3 yet?

#1 Edited by Raven_Sword (3446 posts) -

Im wondering if weve seen any vids of the game running on a PS3, so I can see how it looks. Im kinda worried about the PS3 version because Ive only ever seen 360 videos of it, and im considering getting it on PS3. What are the chances itll look exactly the same?

As far as I know NO. But apparently the PC version impressed brad so much he will play that version and not the console version.

yeah i've mainly seen 360 videos for the game (on giantbomb only tho..) but they have shown some ps3 gameplay for it too and it looks pretty much the same (like 99% of all multiplat titles..)

why do you keep making these threads every time a multi plat game comes out? Now a days 99.999% of the time they will both look the same. maybe some contrast or brightness differences but those can be fixed with options or settings on your tv.

Based on the quick look, the PS3 can definitely pull off that graphics. 
 
 
however, what would interest me is a comparison of the PC version to show just how much better the graphics are.

It doesn't matter because both you and I know that Borderlands will be FUCKING AWESOME no matter which console it is on.

Im jsut assuming it might be more vibrant on 360, adn more "washed out" on PS3. im basing this off of Prince of Persia, which had a similar art style.

???????? i played PoP through the end and the colors were amazing. Maybe you should check your tv.

Yeah, PoP looked great on PS3, exactly the same on the 360.  Besides, you couldn't tell when playing, unless you sit the 2 versions side by side of each other.

Randy Pitchford told me at PAX that the PS3 version looks a little better, more vibrancy to the colors in particular, but that the 360 version's framerate is a bit better.  He described it as a solid 30-45fps on PS3 and 30-60fps on 360.  The lead programmer on Dragon Age told me the same thing about Dragon Age.  Usually that's the way games come out, though obviously there are exceptions.
 
I could believe PoP looks more vibrant on the 360 (not having played it) since the PS3 version is a little washed out.  The art style in that game actually isn't similar to Borderlands at all, though.  It might look a bit like it in video but in person it's very different.  Neither game shows very well in video (or screenshots) compared to what they look like in motion.

@Raven_Sword: I'm wondering the same thing. It'd be nice to see it running on all platforms before making a choice between them. 
 
I'm trying to get an answer to this as we speak. But if I don't, I suppose we'll know soon enough.

Thats really cool that you talked to him and stuff.

@hpv: That's wierd, cuz Randy Pitchford and his grandma told me that the 360 version looks/runs better. He said while the 360 version runs at over 9000 fps and has graphics only dreams are made of, the ps3 version sadly ran at a whopping -10 fps and looks like my toilet bowl after some bad mexican food.  Seriously dude they look the same and run the same nice try though.

Have you talked to Randy Pitchford about it?  I didn't think so.  I have, and that's what he told me.
 
This shouldn't be surprising in the least as the 360's GPU is a bit more powerful than the PS3's and when developers aren't targeting the PS3 exclusively it's a bit easier (or a lot easier for the developers who just suck) to get a better framerate out of the hardware.  This has been widely reported.  Obviously when targeting the PS3 hardware properly and unloading some of the graphics rendering to the SPUs (as Naughty Dog has done with Uncharted 2) they're going to get excellent framerates and graphics that probably can't be done on a 360.  That the 360 outputs slightly more washed out colors than the PS3 in most circumstances, though I've never seen anyone specifically point out why.  Randy Pitchford described it as "something about the 360's video output" if I remember correctly, but as that was almost two months ago he might have used slightly different words.
 
The lead programmer on Dragon Age told me almost the exact same thing about his game.  I haven't played either on PS3 but I can vouch for both of them looking great, running smooth, and being a ton of fun on 360, since that's what they were demoing on.  I'm positive they'll both be great on PS3, which is where I'll be playing them exclusively unless my computer can handle Borderlands decently and then I might have to double dip.
 
I don't know what you think I was "trying" to do, but I'm glad you think I did a "nice" job at it.  Gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside.
 
Considering that the closest you've gotten to any version of the game is watching videos on the Internet that don't come close to doing the game's graphics justice you really should shut the fuck up.  Now calm your ass down, you're being obnoxious.
