    Hello all, something has come to my attention that is really disturbing.

    I have been watching my brother play the Fall of Cybertron demo on his 480p 24 inch screen and his xbox, and the graphics are less jagged, blurry and all around better than my 1080p 52 inch plasma television on the ps3.

    I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing graphicalproblemss like I am on the pee ess trey, but I sincerely hope it doesn't look like this in the final cut.

    Which ever way it looks, it still looks better than WFC in my opinion.

    Well you're lucky. I played WFC on my xbox before it died on me, and those graphics were ten times better. Smooth edges, no blur, no jaggies. FoC is looking pretty bad in the demo.

    Even with that, I don't know why it looks better on my brother's set up

    But there's a bigger problem with texture loading.

    I don't even mind that. I know how Unreal Engine works, and they can just polish that out with updating. I just don't understand how my setup makes it look so bad as opposed to my brothers. Is it a matter of xbox over ps3, or what.

    i just don't like having the sequel to a game look worse than the original D:

    I... Kinda have to agree. When I started Multiplayer on the demo, (Can't judge Singleplayer, haven't played it) The first think I saw when I transformed was "Are the graphics a little off or what?"
    I don't know if that's just for PS3 or not, and frankly, it doesn't bother me. But that is kinda annoying.

    I've played the demo on my 360 and PS3, both on the same TV. Haven't noticed much of a difference.

    Yeah, the texture loading is pretty awful.

    For me, it's really bothersome. Only once did my Bruticus look sharp as opposed to blurry in the Bumblebee level, and whenever I first go mess with customization, they all look blurry and I have to sit there and wait for the textures to load.

    Yeah, now I know what you mean.

    I just hate these jaggies man. Any game, jaggies...ohgod.

    I'm currently putting my brother's xbox on my television to see if it makes a difference.

    I haven't really noticed the problem with textures, maybe because I have a HDMI cable?

    I use HDMI as well, which is what is getting me so confused.

    1080p vs. 480p and the 480 looks better? What is that?

    So, the xbox version looks superb on my television as opposed to the ps3 version.

    Well this sucks. Maybe I'll just re-reserve it on xbox then, and see if the thing can handle playing a game :/

    Switch the tvs and see what happens. Which ever set up the graphics follow should help you out. Trouble shoot a little. It might be even how you system is hooked to your TV. . . maybe

    my ps3 plays the game at 720p. should it be 1080p? the only time i really can tell the blurry textures is at the character customize screen. it only looks good when the camera zoom up to the face

    My TV automatically changes to the best resolution. With FOC (and most other games) it changes to 720p even though I have a 1080p TV with HDMI. If you look at the back of video game cases, it'll usually say "HD video output" with the resolutions it runs the best with. WFC is 480p and 720p. So, try setting your TV's at 720p and see what happens. The graphics look really good for me.

    The demo looks great for me (360 version, 720p, 32" LCD, HDMI cable). I also haven't noticed the texture trouble as much; it takes a while on the customization screen but in game it's plenty fast, and in either case it's faster than WfC was.

    It also looks fantastic for me as well on xbox, but complete dookie on ps3, and I don't know why.

    I don't like assumptions and this sounds like one

    as much as I would love to believe you, and believe me, I would LOVE to, but I couldn't see how the console would make a difference of graphics demo wise.
