Call of Duty Modern Ware Infinity Ward has done an excellent job with the game engine in Call of Duty Modern Ware . The game runs silky smooth and looks great on both consoles. Outside of a few blurry ures on the PlayStation 3, which can be seen on the gun stock and the ground ures, the two console versions look largely the same.

Dragon AgeIn a departure from the norm, the PlayStation 3 version looks cleaner because of its higherresolution ures and the increased depth the ures get from bump mapping. While the Xbox 360 version looks worse, it definitely runs smoother.

Batman Arkham AsylumBatman Arkham Asylum is a ntasticlooking game on both platforms, and if you play it like we did with Detective mode enabled 0 percent of the time, youll never be able to tell the difference between the two versions.

Every subsequent comparison pretty much ended the same, with the Xbox 360 getting the benefit of slightly higherresolution ures and other marginal improvements that wouldnt be noticed unless the s were put side by side. Well see if the trend holds true with some of the best games from this year.

Resident Evil Much like the other games, Resident Evil looks marginally better on the Xbox 360. The improved ures and shadow resolution give the 360 the edge, even if it is a very small one.
