How is the PS3 disc version of the game?

#1 Posted by LiquidPrince (15907 posts) -

I already own the game on Steam, and I can run it at max settings very easily. But for whatever reason (probably because Trophies allow me to play the game more then once with different goals in mind) I want to also play it on PS3. Another reason is I like owning box copies of games that I like. I've heard tons of complaints about the 360 version of the game but not so much about the PS3 version. The quick look was also on PS3 and it didn't seem to stutter much. So for anyone who has the boxed PS3 copy how is it in terms of performance?

The frame rate gets pretty bad in a couple of places and it pauses occasionally to load up the next piece of dialog or whatever. I've only done up through episode 2 so far, and it hasn't really ruined the experience for me. I'd say pretty standard for a PS3 port.

Sounds like the PSN version. The game plays perfectly fine on the PS3.

@MetalGearSunny: @Redbullet685: So it doesn't have all the stuff that was wrong on the 360? Is the 360 version a lot worse for some reason?

Judging from episode 1, the 360 version is the port, not the PS3. I experienced way more stuttering on the 360.

It's a technical mess on every platform, even PC has the stuttering.

@LiquidPrince: Can't really speak for the 360 version, never played it.

@Sooty: I wouldn't call it a mess, unless you're talking about the PC save issues, but it has it's problems. Still a fucking amazing game (so far).

@LiquidPrince: From what I've read/heard, the 360 version has some save issues. It also has the framerate stuff like the PS3 version, too.
