Rayman origins is down to 20$ at least online and probably in store. Don't miss the best 2d platformer of this generation.

It's already been proven that there's no multichannel effects in either version, stop fearmongering. It's a 2D platformer.

I've been waiting for this magical price! I had my eyes set on the PS3 version since I prefer the d-pad, but I just bought one of those silver 360 controllers for Fez so I might jump in on 360. Are there load times?

I don't have a 5.1 setup anyway.

I went for the PS3 version because I prefer that controller for 2D games.

I'm guessing you only own a PS3 with such a vitriol response.

I went to the trouble of digging up a link for something I'd only heard about in the peripheral. You come at me and accuse me of fearmongering (sic) without backing up your claim.

Please do so. (if they are identical I'd rather own the PS3 version)

Oh, and because it's only a 2D platformer, you might as well buy the Wii version, right?

I know you're being sarcastic, but it bears pointing out that the game looks INCREDIBLE and it full 1080p (at least on PS3), so unless you only have a Wii don't get it on Wii. I've only got TV speakers going but it sounded great to me.

I did hear the audio issue for the ps3 version. I have a full fledged 5.1 sound set-up and even though it's a 2d platformer it may have some neat ambient effects in the rear-channels.
Though the very fact that the PS3 version doesn't even include support implies the dev's didn't care about which implies that they probably didn't bother to put in any great ambient effects (if any at all).
I'll still get it for PS3 because the dpad is so good for 2d games.

EDIT* There is no surround sound of any sort as far as I can tell. Ubisoft gimped the PS3 version as far as I can tell. Kinda pisses me off, I was planning to buy it for the 3DS because I like the game that much but Ubisoft can shove it just for the fact that they tried to pull a fast one and removed everything DTS related right before launch.

Sound aside however this is one of the best games I own and I have over 50 PS3 games. IGN had a glowing review (9/10) that sums up my thoughts of the game, but if you have both consoles 360 version is the way to go for sure.

It MIGHT be the regular price. Nowhere does it indicate that it's on sale. But who knows.

i DO in fact have a ps3, as well as a wii, and an xbox 360. none of the 3 systems actually make use of ANYTHING other than the left and right channels. I have played all 3 versions, there is no discernible difference in the sound whatsoever.

Hmm that's interesting, to hear it from someone who has played all versions it definetely changes my mind on buying it for the 3DS. Thanks for the info.

PS3 has by far the better dpad of the two, if those things matter to you.

Oh and after reading through the topic that stated the PS3 version had worse sound; it turns out not to be the case. The ps3 version supports lossless 7.1 PCM through HDMI, which is essentially the very best possible sound out of any format commercially available. The only downside is it does NOT have a DD 5.1, and the sheer amount of data in a 7.1 PCM cannot fit through an optical cable so unless you are running a high end receiver that takes an HDMI input you are stuck with stereo.
So the PS3 version has the best sound and the lower level sound but no middle ground sound support. While the 360 version has low and middle end sound support.

I'm particularly proud of my switch on top.

We have a bigger CRT downstairs but my sister likes to watch wedding shows and I have no patience for that. So while I do have a problem with my sides being cut on this TV the big problems I've had are Mass Effect 2 Demo, Amalur Demo, SkullGirls Demo. I haven't finished it by any means but DeadSpace was actually pretty playable when I played the demo.. disc is still sealed. If you want to see an HD game that looks gorgeous even on my TV I highly recommend Eufloria (PSN). I've never seen text so large, clear and high contrast to it's background.

Spring Fever was the worst headache because like many PS3 Themes it has white text on light pastel background. I have to wonder if even in HD it's hard to read.
