Skyrim: PS3 vs. Xbox 360, and console favoritism

Skyrim: PS3 vs. Xbox 360, and console favoritism

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are coming in thick and fast now, but one that sticks out most of all when it comes to comparisons is this game on both PS3 and Xbox, and console favoritism.

When it comes to reviews, we have already shared: review highlights recluse issues, Skyrim vs. Uncharted 3 review scores, and another about gameplay. This time round is all about comparing graphics and visuals between two top named consoles.

So when you look at the visuals, which console comes out on top? Well, we visited Now Gamer and they have what we call the best screenshot comparisons of Skyrim on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Now Gamer has put together 28 screenshots, and when you visit them you can cleverly roll over each one, when you do this it will give you the PS3 and Xbox 360 comparisons, hover your cursor over the Images and then off again to flip. Some of the comments on this site are interesting, obviously with mixed responses. Some say that Skyrim on the Xbox 360 clearly wins, but another commenter believes that the PS3 is better; they believe that the details are much better on the PS3 and are missing from the 360 version.

Digitally Downloaded points out their opinion of Skyrim being tailored for consoles, they believe that Bethesda are doing it all wrong, they say this game is perfect for the PC but gets screwed all over when they bring to the console market. Read their outtake, it is a good read.

Whilst on the subject of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, please watch the YouTube video below that we have embedded walking you through the PS3 vs Xbox 360 split screen comparison. When you watch you will notice on the left side is the Xbox 360, and on the right is the PS3. Please let us know what side you think is the best.
