It's one thing to look into a game as an individual product, but human nature tends to have people throwing down comparisons left, right and centre. When there is no official yardstick to measure something, the next best thing is to look at is something similar. Gamers compare all sorts of things all the time. Boxers have their own unique attributes on paper, but it is their ability in the ring that determines who reigns supreme. It is with this thinking that I present to you today's two contestants in a gaming head to head battle.

Highly anticipated sequel BioShock 2 sees general release in South Africa today. While not quite living up to the narrative heights of its predecessor, we thought it was an excellent game in its own right. If you’re a multiple system owner and unsure about which one to get it for, Eurogamer have put together another of their famed face-off’s detailing the highs and lows of each version. Which do they recommend?

You knew it was coming and while certain elements still falsely attempt to discredit Eurogamer they are still the only site that is technically above reproach when it comes to these comparisons. So when they sat down and compared Resident Evil 5 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 which one came out tops?

“while PS3 owners still get a decent enough version, it's the Xbox 360 rendition that is clearly the more attractive, solid and more playable game”
Succinct and to the point, the Xbox 360 is the superior version when it comes to Resident Evil 5. They do however still state that the PS3 version is enjoyable enough and if all your friends are playing on a PS3 then get the PS3 version as the co-op section of Resident Evil 5 is most probably its best attribute.

It’s back, the regular Eurogamer feature that gets the worlds fanboys frothing at the mouth. So the big question again is can the PS3 finally get a round win over the Xbox 360? Remember all the indisputable technical details can be found through the link at the bottom but if you are going to blame Eurogamers for your console of choices failures the technical details are not going to be that important.

Eurogamer have produced another fanboy flame-baiting console face-off, this time focusing on the home versions of Capcom’s critically lauded Street Fighter IV. Street fighter IV, of course, is ported from the arcade version – which runs on Taito’s X2 arcade system. Taito’s X2 system in turn is comprised of fairly mundane PC components – A Nvidia 7900GS, and Intel 2.13Ghz Core 2 Duo. Something to note is that the PS3’s GPU is based on the same architecture, being a modified 7800GTX. Let’s find out how each console fares after the jump!

It’s that time again, Eurogamer has posted up their results of the latest console Face Off and this time we are taking a look at some really big titles like Bioshock, Pure and Star Wars: Force Unleashed.

Before seeing what they have to say let’s get the two biggest questions or accusations out of the way. One of the most common statements is that Eurogamer are just being biased and favouring the Xbox 360, well if anyone can find a technical fault with how Eurogamer are testing then you may have a point however no one has been able to do that yet.

The next question is why do we care? Well that is more difficult to answer as the difference between the two has now become minimal and it rarely stops either side enjoying their game so it’s really just a bit petty now. But having said that I honestly feel since both companies made HD gaming a large part of their marketing campaigns it is only right that we rate them on their ability.
