Assassin's Creed: 360 vs. PS3

The two versions side by side

Ubisoft's long-awaited Assassin's Creed finally swings gracefully into the shops this Friday, and to help you dual-console owners decide which version to get, we've knocked together a comparison video.

Under a microscope the PS3 version does look a bit sharper when the two versions are running side by side.

The Xbox 360 version makes up for this with (arguably) better controls and we're also told it runs two or three frames faster than the PS3 cousin, though no-one's going to notice that.

The other, less fanboy-ish aim of these movies is to show off the game's awesome free-running system. It places Altair's hands and feet onto individual stones and ledges as he clambers across the Jerusalem rooftops. It looks fantastic, we're sure you'll agree.
