Xbox 360 vs. PS3 Face-Off: Round 15

BioShock, Dead Space, Pure, Midnight Club, Spidey, Star Wars.

Eurogamer's dogged, relentless coverage of the latest in cross-platform console development continues into this mammoth 15th round, where six more high-profile games are torn apart to the sounds of rage, applause and occasional reasoned debate from the internet assembled.

Of course, you all know the deal by now. Key to our quest is mastery of the video outputs of the respective consoles. Zero-compromise 24-bit full-range RGB captures from the HDMI ports of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 allow us to produce the best comparison screen grabs, while Eurogamer's h264-equipped video player means the best in streaming video (make sure you have that 'high quality' feature enabled). And if all that isn't good enough, the high-def captures in all their 720p 60FPS majesty can be downloaded for playback on fast PCs, Xbox 360 or PS3 via the author's blog where similar content for the technically obsessed can also be found.

In terms of releases covered this time around, we've centred on a collection of the most recent, interesting or controversial titles:

Next up after this is a special face-off bonus round: a gaming ménage a trois featuring Fallout 3 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Just how good, or bad, are the console versions compared to the PC game? Find out later this week; the results may not be as clear-cut as others have already proclaimed. After that, it'll be back to the regular format, combining a number of new titles with a series of round-ups in an effort to reduce a genuinely intimidating 'to-do list'.
