Xbox 360 or Playstation 3?

#1 Posted by LikeaSsur (1432 posts) -

A weird question to most of you, but it's a valid one to me, nontheless.

Which system should I get this for? I don't care much about the graphics or slowdown or whatnot, because at the end of the day, it looks the same to me.

I played the demo on the 360, if that has anything to do with it, but my main question to those who have it is this: Does it feel right to have it on your system? I've always had single player games on the Playstation 3, but this feels like a multiplayer game....oh, the dilemma of my first world problem.

Help me, duders!

I had the same problem I played the demo on both systems and in the end went with the 360 due to more friends and hard drive space for dlc. I have it installed on 360 frame rate is solid and I don't notice the screen tearing at all. The black bars are present in both version as far as I know. I am really enjoying it on 360 despite my preference for 3rd person games on ps3

Well isn't the 360 version getting a Resident Evil 6 demo with the game? I only have one console but If I had a 360 I'd go for that one.

PS3 but I believe it's under that stupid 360 timed exclusivity deal.

Also, I've been hearing that the 360 has screen tearing and, if you don't install, NPCs take a few seconds to pop in. I'm on the PS3 version, which doesn't have screen tearing, but apparently has a very slight frame rate drop. I barely notice it though.

Which one is worse: Screen tearing (360) or slowdown (PS3)?

Those are the issues with each version that I've heard about. As far as I know, everything else about them is identical.

I have played about 12 hours on PS3 and have not had any slowdown or frame rate issues.

I rented it for PS3 because my Xbox is currently dead. Can't comment on the Xbox version, obviously, but I've had no problems whatsoever, and I am really enjoying playing it on the PS3.

According to some reviews the 360 version framedrops more during intense battles, but my friend who's played it for a while now says it's not that noticeable. Personally I would get the 360 since both my PS3 HDD and friends list are tiny.

Thanks for the input, everyone. After careful consideration, I am a proud owner of the 360 version of Dragon's Dogma. I'll see your pawns in game!
