Of course not, you'd only have them if you got the 360 version.

Yes because I hate the X360 so much that I own one just to trash talk it! Rawr!

Now let me go play Overlord on the ****box because I need more negative things to say.

You know what, Atleast I can say I have on hands experiance when I say something negative unlike you who states whatever the hell he wants when the facts say otherwise, by chance do you work for the US Government?

My bad Magus, I keep forgetting how fair and unbiased you've always been.

It's the opposite... at least for this game. Check IGN review for proof.

1.) DAMN EvilChris you really can't help yourself can you? So Magus is biased but its ok for you to come into a perfectly civilized console-neutral thread and make sarcastic inciting remarks based on a game and console you don't even own

2.) I've had some low framerate issues on my PS3 version of Darkness. They were sparce and tended to occur during scripted heavy action events. I'm currently running 1080p but I'm going to try setting my PS3 max res to 1080i and see if that takes some strain off.

3.) Great game, can't wait to get off work so I can go back to playing it.

I picked this up today but haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Also got the the Silver Surfer game although I don't have high hopes for it. I really like the Fan 4 though so I had to give it a try.

Could you let us know if you get the same frame rate issues on 720p and 1080i. Would be good to know.

It really shouldn't matter what resolution you're using, all games are rendered natively at either 1080p or 720p and the console simply up/downscales to your video settings.

I can't decide which system to get it on. I was leaning towards the PS3 as haven't bought a game for it since getting VF3 - I already had Resistance and COD2 with the bundle. I would like to know from someone with the PS3 version if it has any AA or not.
