Is this better on 360 or PS3?

#1 Posted by NTM (7542 posts) -

I understand it's probably best on PC, and if I were to play this, I would have loved to play it on PC like I did Origins, but with the lack of a working PC to do so, that's not happening any time soon. I also understand that many people believe this is a disappointment, but I was wondering, if I were to ever want to buy it, and I had to choose either PS3 or 360, which version would be the better choice? In a way, it's really too bad that I got so into the whole Dragon Age thing in the first place, 'cause I loved Origins and had played and beat it about a week or so before the sequel (although I did have it from release), and hearing the amount of people that were disappointed in this game I just never picked it up. Also, are they going to make another Dragon Age? I'm not really all that interested in Dragon Age right now, but since I have the soundtrack to Origins, and rarely listen to it, I thought I would, and so I just made this thread.

I played it on PC, and from my experiences I can't say that a console wouldn't do it as much justice. The control system is extreamlined from Origins, so it shouldn't be a problem. Can't say which console would be better though. I suppose Xbox generally has the best performance out of the crossplatform games though.

@NTM:

I've only played it on the 360 and I didn't have any problems. I never had a glitch and, despite some occasionally compression artifacts in the videos, it looked really good too.

It plays fine on PS3 as well. Honestly though, I think it's best to just pretend it never existed.

No real difference on the consoles. The PC obviously will run better and has a high resoultion texture pack for download. If your comparing strictly consoles... then no difference.

It should play the same on both. There are demos available for both platforms, so why not try them?

I have tried them when they came out, and noticed differences, neither of of them I liked from a technical standpoint, but not sure if it's what the final product was like.
