The 360 has more contrast it seems, and in most cases sharper textures.

Some people have told me they don't see any difference. Honestly, with many of these games there isn't much of a difference or the difference can't be told from the screenshots (a screenshot says nothing about framerate for example)

Some titles with noticable differences: Pirates of the Caribbean, Transformers, The Darkness, Oblivion

Observing the immense amount of replies this topic has attracted since your previous post, I can only draw the conclusion that everyone in this community really cares a lot about console fanboyism.

It's not really fanboyism to compare.

Anyway the screenshots in these comparisons are closer to each other than multi format games that appeared on say... Snes, Megadrive/Genesis or Pc engine/Turbo grafix.

Close enough to not actually care if your version looks a little worse.

I don't like how the PS3 versions appear lighter than 360 games. I believe people pointed the finger at HDMI doing it but the HDMI 360 doesn't have that problem. 360 games in general seem to have better textures than PS3.

The way I see it, there are slight differences and some games look better on one console than the other. However I don't really care too much with looks better, aslong as I get my precious HD gaming experience.

Actually James, the PS3 versions generally appear washed out since the RGB Full Range (HDMI) option is set to limited for the most part. When set to full, the difference is considerable.

Normally each color channel uses eight bits, which equals 256 possible values. For computers, black is set at 0 and white is set at 255. However, for TVs black is set at 16 and white is set at 239. PS3 apparantly output using the TV video levels and the 360 outputs computer video levels. Actually, the 360 can output either way, you can set it to use the TV levels if you wish. I believe originally the 360 output only TV video levels, which caused a washed out image when using the VGA cable with a computer monitor, so they added the ability to choose video levels in one of the updates. The PS3 doesn't have a VGA cable, so it doesn't need such a feature.

It does have it, like Smeggy just said, it defaults to the limited range and people just don't change the setting.

Apparantly it DOES have it, yes. Some screenshots have the full range and some the limited range. I assume the PS3 leaves it up to the game to output the right video levels
