    Default Biohazard 5 Demo Comparison

    After receiving the Playstation 3 version of the Biohazard 5 demo, I spent most of the day creating a little article which compares the two. Keep in mind that the game has several weeks still until release, so most of the "issues" could end up being fixed and polished. I'll have a video comparison for you guys sometime tomorrow, and it will be for members only, since the bandwidth demand for this will probably be too big to support the general public.

    Is the Ps3 version "widely available" yet like the 360 version was?

    Hopefully I'll be able to find one to order...I'd like to see the difference for myself.

    No, read the article. Its only available on a disc you get if you buy a new PS3 from Nov 18th onward.

    I cant. Its 1GB, and also has this oddball way of copying it to the PS3. Basically, you put the disc in and go to boot it, but it opens like a folder. Then you click on the BH5 demo, and it copies the INSTALL to the HDD. Then you have to install the game proper to the HDD again. So yeah, its odd. Plus, afaik, you can't rip PS3 game demos properly yet.

    The odd filtering present in DMC4 seems to here as well, but I suppose Quaz & co are better judges. The most prevalent differences are the shaders with those builds, which was a minor difference between the two versions of DMC4 as well.

    Any LPCM support on the PS3? DMC4's was basically 484kbps and it didn't even override the DD option.

    Jesus Christ...Dot, I see why you did it and I appreciate it but this is the shit that only fuels the fire of the stupid-ass console wars that will never come to an end. Fanboys on GameFAQs and probably NeoGAF too are linking to this comparison and bitching and moaning about it...it's so ridiculous.

    I understand why you did it -- to show the differences to people who own both consoles(like myself) and want to make a final choice -- but I just LOVE when people shit their pants over differences like this. So ridiculous.

    Nevertheless, for what its worth, the comparison is very in-depth and well done.

    Dot, here - http://www.the-horror.com/index.php?id=features - if we click directly on the text: "Biohazard 5 Demo Comparison", it directs us to the (great) "Dark Biohazard Interview". I thought i'd warn you.

    Great comparison, so far by what i saw i'm glad to be buying an X360! (soon) I just wonder why does the PS3 demo has twice as much data compared to the X360 demo...

    The real comparison is naturally the one between the final retail versions, so this comparison is purely for kicks, since the demos are of older builds of their respective consoles. The 360 had more demo builds as well IIRC.

    Dot's reason for doing it... well, for kicks really He did a DMC4 demo comparison despite not being interested in the game one bit. Far better than relying on Gametrailers or the press in general, and it's fun.

    Is the demo a full GB, or the whole content of the disc? I really don't anticipate any differences in that respect, but it's all the better if they're taking advantage of the extra space somehow.

    No, just call me old fashioned because I miss the days when people played games to have fun and didn't bicker over consoles and exclusivity and other bullshit of the like.
