You've probably already seen comparisons of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Ghostbusters, with the general opinion being that the PS3 version is graphically inferior. Now, developer Terminal Reality has confirmed that the game does indeed render at a lower resolution on PS3.

Asked for comment by Joystiq, a Terminal Reality spokesperson said: "For the record, the PS3 version is softer due to the 'quincunx' antialiasing filter and the fact we render at about 75% the resolution of the 360 version."

The spokesperson added: "So you cannot directly compare a screen shot of one to the other unless you scale them properly. The PS3 does have less available RAM than the 360 – but we managed to squeeze 3 out of 4 textures as full size on the PS3."

It's not great news for European gamers who don't have the option of buying the Xbox 360 version - until later this year it's the PS3 and PS2 versions only.

I just bought it on import for the 360 when it came out in the states - must admit I wasn't that impressed with the game tbh. But only being available on import actually did me a favour as I got £5 more than I paid for it originally when I sold it on Ebay after completeing it! It was like Blockbusters paying me to rent it!

SCEE got it as a timed exclusive in order to combine this with the blu-ray release of Ghostbusters and because Atari didn't have the funds to publish it in Europe. Thank goodness I live in the states.

1280x720 on 360 compared to 960x540 on PS3; 75%? their calculator must be broken..... Why have SCEE got this substandard visually looking game as a timed exclusive is beyond me;)
