[DF]Dragon Age 2 Face Off

After the disappointing console versions of Dragon Age: Origins, BioWare has plenty to prove with the sequel and based on our experiences with the game over the last few days, the studio has delivered. The enormous gulf between the PC and PS3/360 versions has been bridged, and despite the computer version's support for cutting edge DirectX 11 rendering tech, plus a downloadable artwork upgrade, the console SKUs are still very competitive from a visual perspective.

Of course, the chances are that you've already played the recently released Dragon Age II demo. The good news is that the PC and PS3 versions have been significantly tweaked, changed and improved from the code that's out there, and only the Xbox 360 download really represents the quality of the final product. In a sense then, this feature isn't just about comparing the three games, it's also about informing you about how much things have improved from the sampler code you've already played.

As per the norm, let's kick off with a straight comparison between the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Dragon Age II, supplemented with a triple-format comparison gallery.

Bioware can't do visually powerful PC ports, just like ME2.
Why is the draw distance on tessellation so damn low for the ground tiles? They don't reach further than 3-4 feet.

There's supposed to be a patch from Bioware that will (in conjunction with a new a driver from nvidia) massively boost the framerates of single nvidia cards and send multi GPU performance into space. So far they have not delivered. Have you tried 267.59?
