First off The Way the game handeled was Amazing... This Game Handels alot like the ""Call of Duty"" games.. So its Very Easy for Most FPS players to get used too.. Basicly You run around Shooting Monsters and bandits and what not, and Doing Quests for Citizens in need... The Game kind of has a ""Mad Max"" wasteland feel to it. This is also Possibly one of the Most addicting games i have played in a little while.. The Games so Addicting i have hardly set the controller down since got it.. you will find yourself lost for hours Looking for the Perfect gun out of the 15+ million guns out there... A Must Buy/Rent anything.. just make sure you try this game..

I didn't know that the Xbox 360 doesn't support DirectX 10. That's wierd because they're both Microsoft. The PS3 uses OpenGL but there is talk that the PS3 can support DirectX 10. The PS3 can play DirectX10 PC games on the PS3 over a network or the internet.

There's not much differance in the console versions of the game. The PS3 loads textures in slightly faster and supports slightly crisper graphics, but that's just because it's a more powerful system. The playstation has always put a white wash look to dull the colors down some to give there colors a more realistic look. IMO the Xbox has the best online community, and for that reason I bought the game for the 360.
