Monday, June 08, 2009 Claims Tekken 6 on PS3 Has Aliasing Issues

"Now here’s the real kicker, if you like the staff of were at E3 last week you’ll notice something very interesting about the Xbox 360 version of Tekken 6. It is graphically better than its Playstation 3 counterpart. Am I happy about this? Not at all but I find it very ironic that after all this arguing over Tekken 6’s ability to even be on the 360, it looks better as the Playstation 3 version has jagged edges."

My opinion: I have both versions of Street Fighter IV for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Now, guess which version has the most visible jaggies/aliasing issues? There you have it. I wasn't really surprised that the above blogger/writer gave the same observation when comparing the Xbox 360 version with the PS3 version.

Interestingly enough, if you have both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 (and YES, I do have both systems), and you download Namco-Bandai's Tekken 6 Trailer for both systems from their respective marketplaces, you will see the difference between the two versions right away. The PS3 version has noticeable jaggies just from the trailer alone that's on PSN. I'm surprised that Namco didn't embellish their trailer for the PS3 version with one that didn't have any visible graphical defects.

Maybe they thought PS3 owners wouldn't really mind; they're probably used to it. I mentioned on my review of Infamous that that really stands out for the game---the jaggies that are just all over the place. If you can look past the jaggies, there's a great game in Infamous. But the jaggies are just there. They don't make the game bad, but they are in plain sight, every time, in every frame.

So, will Tekken 6 on PS3 have lots of jaggies? Definitely.
