View Full Version : Which platform looks to be the best for AC3?

Excluding PC of course.

It's well known that many games are made on the Xbox and then ported to the PS3, and often the PS3 is lower in quality because of this. In the past Assassin's Creed games, I think Xbox had the edge, with PS3 gaining each year but remaining behind.

With Revelations, according to an analysis on Head2Head, the PS3 actually appears to have better detail and textures than the Xbox, but a slightly lower frame rate.


So, which console port of Assassin's Creed 3 looks to have superior graphics / frame rate?

This will not influence my buying desicion, just wondering what people think.



And I suppose Wii U should get an honourary mention, haven't seen any good footage from there yet though.

Pretty sure the fact that PS3 gets 60 minute worth of exclusive content should mean something.

I'd say PS3 just because of the fact that AC1 was going to be a PS3 exclusive. I've played all of them on Xbox and PS3 and I didn't notice any major differences.

But wasn't AC1-ACB better on Xbox due to bad optimization or something? The exclusive content is awesome but I am talking purely graphics and performance rather than content

PS3 has exclusive content, but on the other hand multiplats usually, if not always, run and look better on the 360. The WiiU will probably be the superior console version though (true 1080p, superior hardware)

PC is obviously the superior platform though.

I'm not sure how different the PS360 versions look since E3. However judging of those builds, the WiiU is superior in visuals. Noticeable but not a massive amount; after all its only a port. I'm pretty sure the WiiU version is 1080p native as-well.

Like these two have stated Wii U has the superior hardware, hell it supports DirectX11 features, that's superior enough.
So Wii U looks to be the best, in terms of visuals atleast.
(of course then we have the PC)

PS - Those screenshots look...bullshotty to me.

The only AC that I've actually noticed running slower any time is the the downloaded version of AC1 on PS3, but I'm sure that's just because it's a download.

Also, I have no doubt that AC III may have superior performance in terms of Console play on the WII U, but the Visuals will likely be the same for the 3 consoles...

^This. Unless Ubi are using the WiiU to it's full potential by making effort towards it, I doubt the visuals will be much better from the other consoles.

There might be a little bit of lighting differences between Xbox and PS3 but they look exactly the same, No console looks superior than the other here.

Pretty sure it means that Sony and Ubisoft have a deal, not that it is "superior".


I'd say PS3 just because of the fact that AC1 was going to be a PS3 exclusive. I've played all of them on Xbox and PS3 and I didn't notice any major differences.

Just because it was meant for PS3 does not make PS3 superior. The PS3 suffers every year compared to the Xbox 360 version in terms of frame rate and screen tear. Only exception is revelations and Ubi have gotten better with ports every year.


The extra content probably means that the PS3 is worse and they have to compensate...

This is also not right.


PS3 has exclusive content, but on the other hand multiplats usually, if not always, run and look better on the 360. The WiiU will probably be the superior console version though (true 1080p, superior hardware)

PC is obviously the superior platform though.

This statement is true.

I wouldn't be so sure. I was reading some stuff on the Wii U and 3rd Party games run at 1080p 60fps. Visually it will look better on Wii U, but not massively. Then again we don't really know because we haven't got footage from all 3 consoles yet of the same thing. Alex said the Wii U would have the same graphics as consoles but I think it will be better as it does have better hardware.

Listen to the wise man people! Don't let it happen.

I think all versions will look the same visually (especially if you look at the ingame footage of the japanese WiiU boston video, it looks the same as the PS3 footage we've seen so far) but WiiU will have the edge with a consistent and/or higher framerate (since the hardware is new of course, so it's easier for it to keep up).

That being said I think this time PS3 and Xbox will finally be exactly the same in both looks and performance, revelations was amazingly close for both of them for being a multiplatform game so AC3 will probably be the "perfect" one. Aren't they developing for PS3 again this time (since the first footage we saw and a lot of the other footage was PS3, we've only started seeing Xbox footage recently and then only on screens in making of videos)? Supposedly AC1 and AC2 were made with PS3 in mind and then with ACB and ACR they went Xbox, maybe for this next numbered title they'll go PS3 again?

Also: The extra content means nothing people! It's neither an indication of the "main" console nor an apology, it's just an exclusivity deal Sony has with Ubisoft to give their platform a couple of extra missions to give their version an "edge" over the other so more people will buy on PS3.

I may be wrong but didnt they develop AC3 on the xbox (at least they use 360 controllers in the dev diaries) so surely it would be better on the Xbox than the ps3.
That said of course it will look better on pc and then wii U than either of them due to the hardware
Also the difference between the consoles will likely be so miniscule you wont be able to see it.

I have an Xbox and a PS3 and I've played them extensively, so I can speak for both sides.

In fact, I have Assassin's Creed I and AC Brotherhood for both consoles. I also have Red Dead Redemption, Battlefield: Bad Company, NCAA Football 09, The Force Unleashed, and UFC 2010, for both consoles*. And yes, I've played them on both consoles.

From my experience, the Xbox is better at everything. Everything on my Xbox 360 (which is the Gears of War 3 Edition) saves faster, loads faster, downloads faster, installs faster, runs smoother, and looks better. Let's not forget the Xbox has a much better user interface. When I buy games, and I rarely do, I always get them for my Xbox 360 cause I find it better.

*I have games on both consoles (and even have two of the same games on one console) because my dad picks them up VERY cheap at the flea market (the 'Jockey Lot'). He can find any AC game out there for 5-10 bucks.

Uncharted 3.



PS3 is the best gaming console in the history of everything, period.















( :P )
Naw, sounds fair enough, I still prefer PS3 though I don't doubt what you are saying is truth. Comparing my PS3 to my friends 360 which I play a fair bit, they are pretty equal, my PS3 seems to have sharper graphics and better colours but frame rate is probably a bit slower, the graphics thing could be the TV though.


If I could afford it I would have a $1000000 gaming desktop and play AC on max settings at 60fps all day err day!

Ha, I don't care how much the computer is nor how good it is, I'll NEVER play video games on a PC, UNLESS they're point-and-click strategy games (Age of Empires).

Good lord, the fact that people like playing on them is beyond me. Better graphics, sure - I totally understand that, but trading off to play a game like AC on the keyboard and with a mouse? HA! I'll never do that.

I prefer a sole analog to move, a sole analog to look, and a button layout to play the game.

Oh hell no I wouldn't play any console game with keyboard and mouse, aside from the fact that I don't even have a mouse :P No I would get a controller (PS3 or Xbox, I like both.. In fact I would probably have one of each to mix it up) but like a proper set up with a decent sized moniter (20+ inch? I don't really know much about gaming computers but would want as big as possible)


So basically play it like a console but with the advantage of superior graphics, better frame rate and... MAYBE.... Mods.. :)



That being said I am perfectly satisfied with my PS3 for now, in fact I have only been in current gen gaming for about a year now so it's still pretty impressive to me. But one day I want a high spec gaming desktop :)

Glad i bought PS3 because it is clearly more easier to use online, setting up and simply playing on.

I just saw a little video about the Wii U version and in that thread it was stated that the Wii U version is only rumored to run at 1080p and 60 fps. It was also said that the Wii U version is made to match the other consoles, not exceed them (it also might be missing some particle effects the other versions have!). So for all we know right now the Wii U will be exactly the same as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, only with all/more weapons permanently on shortcut (as opposed to just 4 shortcuts) and HUD elements on the controller.

Just thought I'd post that since previously I myself posted that I thought the Wii U version would be the best one graphics/performance wise. Sorry for the misinformation people! I had accidentally seen the rumors as statements.

Mario had a glass eye!? XD
So that's what was so weird about him to me, could never really tell what made me feel he was weird but now I know! His eye did seem a bit off!

But also think about that if you play a PS3 on a small SD tv and an Xbox on a big HD tv that you will make out those things way more easily, I played AC2 on an SD tv so I never caught details like that. I noticed that especially when I was replaying some of my old games a while ago how much details I could suddenly make out. What I'm trying to say is: Make sure it's a fair comparison with the same tv's and all that before making statements like that. I can guarantee you most games look really close if you play them on the same tv. Of course I know nothing about your tv situation, just some food for thought.

Depends on: the reference version is the Xbox 360, and you can see from the various diaries depict where development studies.

The demo version is the PS3, for purely commercial purposes.

If logic serves me correctly, it should be better on 360. In this case, get the PC version, which will surely be the best. :)
