Interesting read. To me the PS3 version looks a lot better, less muddy textures from the images shown, but yeah seems like 360 can run it better.. hmm. I'll stick to getting the PS3 version
LoT also supported 360 having blurrier textures. Still on a game like this, it doesn't really matter. Still, if you own a Vita, better to get the PS3 version...

Not surprised really. The 360 seems to win most of the comparisons....probably because it is easier to program for (from what I have read over the years). Buying 360 version, confirmed.
This was their deciding factor for those who don't want to read the article:
To summarise image quality, both the 360 and PS3 versions carry distinct visual leads over the other. On the one hand, the PS3 has sole command of a depth of field effect, which grants the game a distinct cinematic quality, while the 360 has free rein over both ambient occlusion and light shaft effects. In all, the deciding vote for us must be based on performance. Tearing is in abundance on PS3 during battle, though they're both liable to drop v-sync when under strain from smoke and fire effects in particular. Moreover, frame-rate drops are more regular and sustained on Sony's console than they are on the 360 version - we see hitches down to 20FPS while running through the Sanctuary hub-town, while the latter version gets away in holding out at the target 30.

I have the PS3 version and I have yet to see screen tearing or a drop in frame rate. sorry Xbox360er's but I must have a magical PS3 version or something. websites can say what they want but coming from sites like IGN and "Lens of Truth" which have made it obvious to being bias, I just know how the PS3 game runs since I have it. don't listen to the "derps" that don't have the PS3 version. I got it and have yet to run into any performance issues as well as playing online with 3 others.PSN ID: Intense_Peanut

But then again, thats because its missing effects and low res alpha transparency.
Its not like the PS3 couldn't have done those effects. Just not at a decent framerate.
But as usual when it comes to post processing the PS3 pulls its weight (depth of field).
Still you never miss what you aint got.
I don't think they have ever been different, outside of the odd poorly programmed Japanese games, and the odd post processing effect (which the SPU's slice through like hot butter).

I personally haven't seen any tearing either. Maybe im just blind.

So now Lens of Truth and Digital Foundry are biased. Well that wraps up the Internet gaming sites then. SMFH.

Why are sites biased when their findings don't jive with someone else's experience?

Ya I heard on g4tv and other reviews about the issues with the xbox 360 version of the game. I have a ps3 and have been playing borderlands 2 and was pretty amazed at the game's graphics and gameplay. Being a person who has never played borderlands this game blew me out of the water. I have been playing non stop since borderlands 2 release and no glitches yet. I havent seen the framerate drop or anything even when I'm in a heated battle. THis game rocks!
