Platform comparisons

Got to love that PC load time. As someone that loves to reload saves a little too much, this is probably good news.

Game looks better and loads faster on the PC.

Xbox and PS3 are down to which controller you prefer.

What was the point of this video? Surely pretty much all Multi-platform games conform to the above?

@Emilbus: Short load times can weirdly be a double-edge sword - There's been a bunch of games where I've barely been able to see loading screen advice, since the loading is over and done with so quickly.

I stopped the video right after he tried to make it sound like Bethesda made Dishonored, comparing it to how their Skyrim PC version was. Going to finish watching it after this comment

Thats like this guy at my local gamestop who tries to sell Dishonored by saying the same guys who made Skyrim are making Dishonored. I once heard him say the guys making Call of Juarez are the same guys that made Call of Duty.

This is necessary because there is a review site out there that is saying that the PS3 version has graphical problems. But obviously the PC was going to be the top platform for this game.

Thank God for the FOV slider on PC. The default FOV on consoles is absolute garbage from what I've seen in videos.

I want to punch the guy in the video. What a tool.

Also, what's up with this or this playing in the background?

Load times....thank goodness I have a fast PC cause I will load a lot.

@SuperSambo: For people with both the 360 and PS3, it's probably good to know that there isn't much of a difference between the two version. I know afew people that prefer playing on a PS3 but bought games on the 360 because of bad ports.

This guy is the WORST!

Thanks for that. I'm sure I'll buy this game sooner or later.

ugh this guy :)

shame the game didn't add a higher rez pack or something for the PC - but higher display rez will always win anyway :)

I'm stuck now between playing it with the (slightly) better k/m or the 360 so I can sit on the sofa.

The load times are decent on the PS3 as well.

If you're stuck to consoles I say go with the 360 version, PS3 has some screen tearing.

Did that look mega washed out to anyone else? I haven't picked up Dishonored yet but for whatever reason the gameplay looked very pale in that video. I probably need to recalibrate my monitor again, or just shell out for a new one.

That's just the way the game looks, it's all watercolour stylised, it looks really drab in places.

No kidding? I wouldn't have expected that from all the promo images I've seen, thanks for the heads up. This is what I get for not watching gameplay videos.

For people with multiple systems (probably many of the people on this site) who would like to know which of their options is best, considering a few high profile games in the last year were pretty broken on specific systems.
