Watch Far Cry 3: PC vs Xbox 360 (Video)

You have to give it to Ubisoft; at this stage in the console generation they really know how to push the Xbox 360 to the limit of its characteristics, graphics-wise. The proof comes in this comparison the Game Front video team has put together, between the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Far Cry 3.

What’s interesting is that the differences are very subtle. PC looks sharper and the colors and shadows look, well, more subtle than XB360, but otherwise the graphics compare well. Have a look for yourself (NSFW dialogue):

Is this just Youtube quality graphics obscuring real differences? I haven’t yet played either version of the game. Let us know in comments what you think (assuming you’ve played both.) And of course, be sure to check out our PC tweak guide.

The biggest thing I noticed was of course the FPS changes between PC and Xbox. I don’t know if its because of the youtube video or not, but it really seems like the Xbox version has a lower FPS of about 30 or so in comparison to the obviously higher and smoother PC version.

The graphics are pretty good for both though, which is good, but it could also come at the cost of the lower FPS on Xbox that I see.
