It's your TV.
It could be something to do with the cabling, perhaps? If it were me I would try swapping the PS3's hdmi cable with the Xbox 360's and see what the results are. Maybe the the Xbox's hdmi cable or port it's plugged into in the TV is having problems? Or it could be that the channel (ie - hdmi 1, 2, 3, etc) that the PS3 uses is configured differently than the one the Xbox 360 uses. Either way, if you use the cabling you use for the PS3 and swap it to your Xbox 360 (not moving the port the cable is plugged into on the TV, just moving the other end from the PS3 to the Xbox 360) it would go a long way to ruling a TV or cable problem out.
The next thing after that would be looking into what you Xbox video settings are (under Settings in the Xbox dashboard).
Anyway, not saying it's the TV or not the TV, just some general troubleshooting tips.
So you guys can't handle that one game is bad and want me to try all of these other things to prove that it's not the game? They're both the same Monoprice HDMI cables that has worked perfectly fine for every other Xbox 360 game I've played with them. I guess the Xbox 360 HDMI cable has an anti-The Walking Dead feature.
Just to add to that, the driving scene looks pretty much the same on both, but the XBLA turns into that dark third picture I posted once those cutscenes are over. It's a bug that happens right around there that breaks the game.
Edit: I humored you guys and switched the HDMI cables. It's exactly the same as before, which isn't surprising since they're good HDMI cables that continue work well. I switched HDMI ports and it was still the same. Please continue giving me suggestions so I can prove to you that it's the game and not the TV, the cables, the system, or the person that is the issue.
Frisky's TV is a Sony Fanboy. I distinctly remember that daytime forest scene being nice & sunny and bright when I played it on the 360
Yeah, I sabotaged my copy of the XBLA version to make the PSN version look better.
My TV is super dark and I can't change the setting so thanks for the warning!
There's no guarantee, so just try out the demo to see if it's the same for you.
