Any big differences between PS3 and 360?

#1 Posted by Mittt (43 posts) -

Has anyone heard of any big differences between the 2 console versions like framerate issues, screen tearing or anything else? I know Diablo III is far from graphically taxing but I always like to check on these things. Thanks for any help!

I have heard things like this game offers local play only, is this true? Will the console version not allow me to play online with friends?

@scullinator: I can speak for the 360 version on that - it supports local and online 2-4 player co-op. I'd assume the PS3 version is probably the same?

I'm playing now - looks good, feels good.

You probably simply misunderstood the huge selling point: the console version is the ONLY version that allows you to play OFFLINE both solo and co-op IN ADDITION to the online co-op. Not that it's local, offline co-op only.

Thanks for the link, @vanek. I was at work and didn't have time to search. I picked up the 360 version. Runs great. Pretty bad screen tears sometimes but the framerate is great.

@frankiebeanz: All current gen versions do not have online capabilities only local co-op. From what Blizzard were saying next gen versions will probably have some online support.

This was taken from another thread about cross platform gaming. Still confused.....

Edit: jimmyfienix is wrong about more than just the spelling of Phoenix
