    Resistance" Fall of Man is a great , older, cheap game. Reminds me of Call of Duty meats Halo. lol.


    And I just upgraded my 60GB PS3 with a 120GB 7200RPM drive. :)

    Yep. I have both consoles and did a comparison between the two. Visually the 360 looks better. The AA is better and its not dark like the PS3. The visuals on the 360 are bright and vibrant, can't say the same for the PS3 version. Controller preference however... I prefer the PS3 controller over the 360, especially for this game.

    Well then, that's a matter of taste. Bright and vibrant isn't always what people prefer. I'd like to see some comparison shots, personally.

    I loved resistance. It's not good compared to what?

    And uncharted is pretty good, if you like Tomb Raider-ish games.

    And why would you buy a cross platform game for it if you already had the ability to buy the game for the 360? If you are going to get an older game for your ps3, it should be an exclusive.

    hrm, well i dont want to argue since i havnt seen it in person, but there are SO MANY REASONS why the xbox360 versions "looks" better. the ps3's video card isnt the same as the 360's which means you would have to adjust your tv to increase brightness and contrast. lol. pretty simple. those screens hardly look any different.

    Thanks for the links. I knew it was a matter of taste. (which is the case in most PS3 vs 360 comparisons, save for the few really poorly coded ps3 games)I think the PS3 looks better. It's more realistic. The 360 overuses HDR lighting, and the contrast is too artificially boosted.

    All I can say is, if you play them one after another, you'll see what I mean.

    Other games aren't as dark on the PS3, it seems to be just FNR4. I will try upping the brightness and contrast to see if it helps. Aside from the darkened look, it also has poor AA and movement when compared to the 360 version. It feels smoother, more responsive, and a little more polished on the 360, IMO. I will eventually buy the game for the PS3 because I don't really play the 360 unless I'm playing GoW II with friends. Other than Gears, the 360 doesn't get played. I don't want to buy a game for my 360 and then all the sudden I get the RROD. I got the 360 for free, so I have no warranty. I only really use it for NetFlix streaming. The PS3 however, I play a lot. Little Big Planet, Killzone 2 (omg beautiful), Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and misc. PSN Store titles.

    Not to mention, I refuse to pay to play online. My ps3 gets used more too. I only use the 360 for 360 exclusives, or on the rare occasion a ps3 port is done really, REALLY terribly. (Think NHL 08).

    EDIT: OOPS didn't know i was added already haha consider this an "update"

    PSN Username:xGRAVExMAKERx,
    PS3 Model: 80GB - HD Upgraded to 200GB WD Scorpio
    Accessories Owned: 1X Six Axis Controller,blue tooth headset (official ps3),BD remote
    TV Owned: Vizio 46" LCD 1080p.
    Games Purchased: Resistance,Resistance 2,Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2,Fracture,Ninja Gaiden Sigma,Genji, Street Fighter IV, Motorstorm,
    Currently Looking Forward To: Metal Gear Rising
    Blu-Rays Purchased: The Devils Rejects,House of 1000 Corpses,Land Of The Dead,Diary Of The Dead,Dawn of The Dead (old),Hancock (came with BD remote free), and like 25 more. :rockout:

    I've had my ps3 for almost a year and hardly played it (mainly used it for blu-ray), but for the past week I've been giving my 360 a break, and i decided to finally sit down play and beat Metal Gear Solid 4 (all 18 hours of it...)

    This game, (and i am by no means a fan boy i have a 360 with literally 68 games.) This game...is probably the best game I've ever played in my life; I can't explain it but the story seriously drives you like a F-1 car going non-stop, i have always been a fan of the MGS series since NES. played and owned all of them, but this one is just...amazing if anything this game shows what the ps3 can do and if this is the case i feel that the 360 eventually will be left in the dust only producing games for its natal to keep up software demand, with games like this... (and Konami ALWAYS pushes a system when they make games for it).

    If you haven't played this game or even aren't a MGS fan. i suggest renting it and giving it a go, i bet you will want to play the other games after.

    Siren is a great game haha cameras take some getting use to but it is scary as shit when your sitting in the dark alone hearing the moans and groans and they sell it on actual BD in the U.K not in the U.S though :[. Im ordering it from play asia cause i have the one on PSN but i want to own it not just have it downloaded. the Japanese version has english titles/subtitles and language option.
