Devil May Cry 4 comparison video: love the one you’re with (update)

Remember when the Internet exploded over the announcement that Capcom was going to do the unthinkable, and share the Devil May Cry 4 love with Xbox 360 fans? Since then, we’ve witnessed more than a few screenshots and videos of the game in action — and each has been more pleasing that the next. 

Unfortunately as a result of the multi-platform announcement, DMC4 (like other games in this predicament) has found itself in the virtual tug-of-war match that countless games before it have endured, as a result of the advent of side-by-side comparison videos posted on the Internet.

With games looking remarkably good on both consoles these days, you have to ask yourself if it even matters which game has the slight graphical edge. It’s understandable that you want to get the most “bang for your buck,” but the comparisons are getting way out of hand.  Possible framerate and playability issues aside, one has to ponder if it’s simply a waste of time to go out in left field over minute differences between the same game on an Xbox 360 and a PS3.

Chances are, you’ll equally enjoy whatever version you choose. It might come down to controller preferences, and whether you prefer Xbox Live’s features vs. what the PlayStation Network has to offer. Better yet, it may be even simpler than that. What console(s) do you own? Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young might have said it best: “Love the One You’re With.” Now unpause that quick panty-shot you’ve been transfixed on, watch the whole clip again, and tell me that any one version seems superior enough to even consider commenting about. Devil May Cry fans –this game is sooo going to rock on both platforms.

[Update: Well, it looks like Capcom agrees that the two versions are identical.]
