Conclusion: As you can see in the Analysis video the Xbox 360 version has an overall higher frame rate, but unfortunately it screen tears almost 50% of the time! On the flip side, the PlayStation 3 version sports higher resolution textures. The texture and resolution differences can easily be seen in our rollover images above. In the end, both version have some major screen tearing issues, and graphics  hiccups throughout. Although the Xbox 360 version sustained a higher frame rate, the screen tearing is horrendous and very distracting.

If your on the fence about which one to get we recommend the PlayStation 3 version. Performance side of things the Xbox holds a higher frame rate while the PlayStation 3 version is locked at 30FPS with much less screen tearing, so pick your poison. Graphically speaking though, the PlayStation 3 version has the clear advantage in this Heads Up. Its a shame, because we were all really stoked to play this game when it was first shown, but after reading some of the initial reviews its looking like a huge let down.  Make sure to check back shortly for the Wii U version screenshot comparison.
