GameTrailers has done us a service by recording some footage of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 on both the XBOX 360 and PS3, comparing them in split-screen.

The verdict? Well first of all the game doesn’t look that great to begin with. However, the PS3 version is lacking many of the shadow effects of the 360 version, and the framerate looks to be a bit lower in some areas (although you can’t really use a crappy flash video or even HD flash video for this, it’s really apparent in the helicopter scene that the PS3 is chugging away at 30 fps at most). Also, the PS3 appears to be adding some motion blur to keep framerate up, and the lighting is… well… crap.
Again, it’s not like the 360 looks that much better, considering we’re over 2 years into the console’s life span. But if you have both consoles, the 360 version is clearly the one to get.
