Last night, we pointed you towards some comparison shots showing the supposed differences between Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3 and 360. Problem was, those shots were iffy. Tonight, let's instead look at a proper, thorough analysis.
Lens of Truth have copies of the game on both systems, and have posted an exhaustive selection of screenshots, statistics and rollover comparisons, allowing people who own both consoles to see exactly how the two versions stack up.
The short and skinny of the breakdown is that, aside from some bloom lighting and minuscule framerate differences, both versions are nigh on identical, especially when it came to texture quality.
As you'd expect, what with the stellar job Infinity Ward did on Call of Duty 4, which remains one of the best examples of how to handle a multiplatform release on the PS3.
Which means, as is often the case with these things anyway, the decision on which version to buy will probably boil down to which version your friends are buying.
(For reference, in these shots, the PS3 is on the left, 360 on the right)
