Does the PS3 version have the same problems as the 360?

#1 Edited by JimMcGowan (12 posts) -

Not sure which platform I should buy this on. My PC isn't up to the task, but I there are a lot of reports here and on the bombcast about the 360 version having pretty bad framerate issues. However, I haven't heard anything about the PS3 version. Anyone here playing it on PS3? How does it hold up?

It is mostly fine. Not like PC great obviously. But the only time the frame rate got really bad for me was on one of the hectic side-missions involving using an alien ship.

The framerate is mostly okay. The reason I ditched that version was the screen tearing. I CAN NOT handle screen tearing in games anymore.

Some people have had a much better time with the ps3 version than me. My experience with it was pretty miserable with the poorest framerate, 95% of the cutscene audio out of sync and 32 lock ups. At one point it froze 5 or 6 times in 15 mins. If there's a broken mission or a bug written about the game online Iprobably encountered it.

@vanek: thanks for the eurogamer link, pretty in depth stuff!

Think I'll prob end up going with the 360 version.

Thanks all.

I read somewhere that the 360 version is much better if you install it. Maybe try that.

I'm finishing up SR3 on the PS3 now (thanks PS+) and once I'm done with GTAV I'd imagine I'll give SR4 a rip on the PS3 as well once it's cheap for continuity's sake.
