Hands-on: Fanboy bomb: Star Trek D-A-C is better on the PS3

It can only go uphill from this, right?

Star Trek D-A-C got an upgrade to its systems for the release of the PlayStation 3 version, and we had a chance to check it out at Comic-con. I could lay some fanboy bait and boldly say that the PlayStation 3 version is better than the Xbox 360 version, but somehow I don't seen the flame catching. Instead, I'll just tell you about the changes, or better yet, let you see them for yourself in our video interview.

Among the improvements are changable difficulty levels and more setting options, but the biggest addition to Star Trek D-A-C is the PS3-exclusive fourth ship group, a support type. Unlike the fighter, bomber, and flagship, this support craft doesn't have much offensive power. Instead, think of it as a healer and a defensive assist. This addition really changes the dynamic of the game completely, promoting more cooperative play. You'll have to protect that healer to survive.

How much better is D-A-C than the Xbox 360 version? We only played it for less than half an hour. Let us give this new one a spin and we'll tell you. As for why the PS3 gets the fourth craft type and the Xbox 360 doesn't, I'll let you take that up with the devs. I'm sure they'll update the Xbox 360 version, though.
