Welcome back for another exciting Head2Head!  We will now take a look back at another huge release for this year.  We apologize for being a bit late with this one, but the wait is over.  Call of Duty has always tended to show favor to 360 hardware so far in this generation.  However as we all know, things are changing and upsets have been quite normal.

this is pathetic, i cant believe the mediocrity these guys put out yet still sell so much.

i have about 5hrs into the game since launch, and every aspect of it is behind its time and honestly shows how crappy the engine looks and sounds.

they are so intent on getting that 60FPS they neglect the visuals and sound which in this game are atrocious.

this will be my last MW3, i mean they cant even make a good PS3 port, and it really shows, they probably make the absolute worse ports ive seen since the launch of the new consoles, its honestly sad

Really no surprise here with a 360 win for this game. Really nothing else to say.

it was obvious that mw3 would look and play better on 360. ps3 has never gotten the treatment like 360 gets it when it comes to cod besides maybe cod4. Actvision=360 Ea=ps3 what more can u say on that.

This thing is almost making me want to return the unopened PS3 version I got for my little brother, but when you consider the campaign is 4 hours long, and that the visual quality is FAR lower in MP (this has been confirmed by Digital Foundry) then there's really no point in celebrating.

Am I willing to return the PS3 copy, trade it, and then pay 60 dollars for LIVE! all for the privilege of a slightly sharper 4 hour campaign?

No.

I'm really glad I got this for the 360.

However, multiplayer should run about the same on both systems. When I played the PS3 version online, it felt as smooth as the 360 version and that's all that matters to me.

They really effed up the lighting in the PS3 version though… everything looks so flat (and the 360 version isn't that great looking, but even then, it's more realistic than the PS3 version)

That being said… I don't play CoD for the graphics, so I'd take either version.

Yup, I predicted this when i saw MW2 comparisons.
EVERY SINGLE COD GAME IS BETTER ON THE XBOX 360!
And that's fine.
Thank god I hate FPS!

P.S.- I'm a PS3 and PC owner.

its not fair to ps3 users.
this is first gen ps3 launch title problems.

clearly shows they threw the port together #1. because it wont sell as
big as the 360 version, and B. it will sell to ps3 owners no matter what.

i have the entire series on 360, and i do own a ps3, and i just feel bad for anyone ps3 only

the problem is that Activision isn't putting any of the money it makes off of the games into the next game, the engine is old, the respawn system is downright broken, they had to remove diving because it was too buggy, many maps suffer from incredibly easy geometry exploits so they can get through the walls, and worse of all is that we all know damn well that if Activision wasn't at the helm we'd be getting a way better product…

Do you get that feeling that this is endorsed by MS or what?

Predictable as it is, I still can't help but feel disappointed. Whatever, I have officially lost all respect for Infinity Ward. *Sigh* PS3-only owners should just stop being blind and stop buying Activision's games altogether, then maybe these guys would finally care to open their eyes and give you all the proper treatment that you deserve.

@Lens of Truth
I would like to request a Head2Head F1 2011, Rayman Origins and The King of Fighters XIII, please.

usual activision crap, but tbh, in the only part that matters in these game ie mp, theres little between them , as confirmed by Df. Yes 360 has slight edge there too, but there's no huge differences noticeable in motion, with ps3 just looking softer. The frame rate is good at least, unlike black ops.

I bought 360 version, but when brothers on ps3 version, i can barely tell difference.

ps, funk knows why the sp got good reviews, it was cack.

Hmmm, LOT definately noticed a bigger difference than DF. I think Richard Leadbetter is going all soft and failing to mention (or spot) some of the basics. Glad I read both LOT & DF for a clearer picture. The PS3 blur filter is ugly, I'd rather crips visual & jaggies.

Normal service resumed after the ps3 finally won a game in saints row 3.

I thought these kind of crushing victories were going out of fashion, but as we can see here, the ps3 still suffers the most in the cross platform wars.
Nice to see zero screen tear though.

You do realize that Sony doesn't produce nor developer this crappy game, don't you?

Of course you don't, because you're a blind fanboy.

Im the opposite as i much prefer a soft look to my games. My settings on my telly has the sharpness at minus 10. Something about a game looking to sharp and angular irritates me. I just feel that when a game looks to sharp it often makes its flaws stand out more.

For example, and you make think im mad here, but the best looking shooter iv played this year is resistance 3, or in particular certain levels like the prison or st louis. Now that saying something considering this year iv played crysis 1 and 2, battlefield 3 and killzone 3 but as good as they look they have visual flaws that catch the eye be it shimmering lines or dancing shadows which can irritate(killzone 3 to a much lesser extent).

Resistance 3 looks superbly clean, yes i know its low resolution at 960 by 540 or something like that but it looks flawless. no shimmering lines or artifacting, no dancing shadows and barely a jagged line in site, add in zero screen tearing and a rock solid frame rate no matter whats happening on screen and resistance 3 is not shy in throwing enemies at you with smart lighting and big explosions all at the same time.

I sometimes wish developers would stop going for this holy grail of 720p because i often feel the comprimise is poor performance and visual flaws whereas a drop in resolution could lead to a better looking better performing game.
