Fanswag: Fanboys Fight for The Darkness


The Darkness, as you may have heard, is fast drawing in upon us. In celebration of this glorious gloom, 2K Games decided to give us 5 copies of the game. The only problem is, they didn't bother to tell us which version. As such, we have decided to collaborate with the heathens over at PS3 Fanboy. We came up with a cordial little contest, and we need your help to settle it. How will you do that? With a good old-fashioned flamewar, of course! All you have to do is:
  1. Finish this sentence: "The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because ... "
  2. Submit your idea to our comments section.
Two winners will be chosen from Xbox 360 Fanboy. Here's the kicker: if Xbox 360 Fanboy receives more entries than PS3 Fanboy, we'll also give away a third copy to another lucky winner. As an added bonus, all winners will receive a prize package from 2K Games including both the game and a special The Darkness comic. We'll accept entries until June 26, 2007, so get cracking. Please note that this giveaway is limited to U.S. residents only, ages 18 and older (it's an M rated game after all). One entry per person.

22. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because the PS3 is a bad machine and this video tell what I think of the PS3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R98qC0fd_1w

23. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because the PS3 sucks!

24. - Because when it releases they will have comparison videos and the 360 will look better... again

- Because FPS always play better on the 360

- Rumble baby... rumble

- The 360 was made for FPS

- You don't have to swing your arms like a crazy person trying to use the sixaxis

- Since the game is set in dark areas you will actaully be able to see (see past comparison videos)

- Its 360... why wouldnt it be better?

29. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because 360's tend to act like a heater. I like drop my darkness like its hot.

snap.

Posted at 6:30PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by BAK6E

30. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because ... wait a second, are you actually trying to compare a PS3 to a 360? That's like comparing a Honda to a BMW, just know the 360 version will rock because it's being played on a 360,

Posted at 6:31PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by Ben

31. The 360 version will be better than the PS3 version because 360 multi platform games ALWAYS score higher than the PS3 versions,It has achievements,custom soundtracks,rumble,its the same game except 200 dollars cheaper,AND BECAUSE THATS LIFE BEING A PS3 OWNER ISN'T FAIR!!!!

Posted at 6:31PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by Roderick

32. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because... Well who doesn't like Achievements and Rumble Feedback?

Posted at 6:32PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by Beck

33. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because Jackie threatened to spawn a Darkling and have it eat my heart out if i don't say it.

Posted at 6:32PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by Warpy

34. ... because the 360 video codec (blah, blah, blah) renders darkness better than the PS3.

Posted at 6:33PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by Ozyman666

35. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because I paid less (and still have my soul) to play the better version of the game on my console of choice, my good ol' (still working) Xbox 360. cheers.

Posted at 6:33PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by Tyr1n

36. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because it's on the Xbox 360.

Posted at 6:33PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by Andrew

37. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because a 30% failure rate with achievements is better than a motion-control without achievements!

Posted at 6:34PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by zephan

38. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because i can actually talk to my friends while playing in multiplayer without selling one of my kidneys to get a top notch bluetooth headset.

Posted at 6:34PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by L1B3RATION

39. ...I dont't have to wander aimlessly through HOME, finish choking on the price of a Blu-ray player, suffer until integration of rumble feedback or pray for a price drop before I can enjoy it along with an entire library of other good games (which will soon include EXCLUSIVE GTA IV content)(I don't want to be too hard on the Sony fanboys because this is basically the only good game on that system in near future).

Posted at 6:34PM on Jun 22nd 2007 by w10

40. The 360 version of The Darkness is better than the PS3 version because it has...ah, I can't do this when we all know the PS3 is going to fail miserably. We should support the PS3 owners in their first, Good, non-port, 3rd-party game, since they won't know why they bought a PS3 when Metal Gear Solid 4 is announced for the Xbox 360 at E3.
