    Wow that's pretty weak...They should definitely stop with these comparisons if they can't even get which video belongs to which console right.

    Holy crap you are right G4 doesnt even have a clue what they are doing.... I bet most people didnt even notice that. You can clearly see the right is XB and the left is PS holy cow....

    Both look really good!! The only difference that i see is the lighting. The PS3 has a brighter image but that is about it! If people say that the PS3 looks way better is stupid. they just want to fuel the flames between the fanboy war!

    Both look great. There are some difference I'd say that definitely lean towards the PS3 though.

    Dear G4 and posters: Pause at about 8:09. I didn't know the 360pad had a "square" button/s.

    The labels of the video are mixed up. The PS3 version is on the left and the Xbox 360 version is on the right.

    I'm not sure whether they themselves were confused because of the similarity, or if they just wanted to make some posters look foolish. Both are oddly amusing ideas to me.

    The usefulness of these types of comparisons is dubious at best because the truth of the matter is that developers always have to choose: develop to the lowest common denominator (xbox or wii) or build separate versions of their products for every platform they release to. Based solely on the hardware capabilities the spec for wii is worst, followed by xbox and ps3 (in that order), with pc being best (only if the user has the cash to afford the rig). Building platform specific games that are released over multiple platforms is technologically unwieldy and fiscally irresponsible.

    The reason xbox and ps3 games end up looking so similar is that developers build their games on pc, targeted for xbox (for the easy portability). The ps3 version gets port of the xbox port, sometimes supported by a texture upgrade or even a small ps3 development team that improves some programming issues but retains the original assets. The pc team then focuses on pushing the outer limits of the average consumer's graphics budget resulting in cherry marketing videos and demonstration experiences at consumer events.

    Media professionals exploit consumer ignorance of the process to get eyeballs on these silly comparisons. Way to drop the "in-depth reporting" ball there G4. You did an excellent job of following the well worn path of "get the eyes, feed the sponsors, ignore the consumers."

    From IGN

    Crysis 2 isn't finished yet. This build could be a few weeks to a few months old, and optimization is often rapid and pronounced toward the end of a game's development period. That said, my time with the PS3 version was sandwiched between the multiplayer demo on PC which, despite its own issues, understandably smokes its console cousins, and a re-released multiplayer demo on the Xbox 360, which I spent some more time with last night. My previous complaints about that version's iffy controller response have been mostly addressed, and visually, it's clearly outperforming the PS3 version. Everything is clearer and sharper, and the framerate is solid. Most importantly, it just feels better than its PS3 counterpart from a play perspective.

    It looks so close, that it is a none issue. The guys saying that the PS3 version blows away the 360 version are retarded... the difference is negligible.

    Who cares? These debates are truly stupid...I own all three consoles and what matters most is how much fun you're having, with the least amount of money required to get there. The PS3 and Wii win...the 360 loses by a wide margin due to the extremely high failure rate and the cost of XBL. Great software, terrible hardware. I'm sure fanboys will flame like MSFT if their birthmother. I simply prefer to be console neutral, these are just businesses trying to make money of you, nothing else.

    Crysis 2 is a tech demo huh @macross2012 idiot you are... the pc graphics are always better. The closest you will ever get to the pc graphics is the ps3. Xbox is a non factor in comparison. I didn't even have to look at the whole video to see how muddy the graphics looks on the Crapbox 360

    Yet another XBox and PS3 comparison only, leaving out the PC version again. I have a 3 year old laptop that's nowhere near the best and Crysis 2 runs really good. So what about those that do have a PC to play Crysis 2? I suppose if I get paid making XBox/PS3 comparisons all day, I would do it too.
