The great thing about multi-platform games is that owners of different consoles get to play the same game. But what about when the game isn't exactly the same?

As it has been pointed out (via website CVG), the Xbox 360 version of cowboy game Red Dead Redemption runs at 720p, while the PS3 version runs at 640p. Meaning? Meaning that the PS3 version of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption is at a lower resolution. There also was a discrepancy for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Rockstar's last huge game Grand Theft Auto IV. I got the PS3 version of GTAIV — it was fine!

Previously, SEGA's action game Bayonetta also seemed to suffer from multi-platform discrepancies with the Xbox 360 looking sharper than the muddier PS3 version.

So I picked this up for PS3. These days I grab my multiplayer games on PS3 and my singles on 360. More friends and clanmates on PS3.

But in any case, does the 360 have the same HDR issues? Assuming they even used HDR?

Example 1: Walk into a saloon in mid-day and the screen DARKENS as you walk inside. It should be the inverse if they actually used HDR. I've walked into some buildings where I can't see a damn thing except the windows.

Example 2: Rain during the afternoon. Sun is not visible anywhere in the sky, totally overcast. So it's dark. Fair enough. But when I have the DARK sky visible in more than 25% of my screen, everything darkens significantly.

Yes, I have messed with brightness settings, no my TV doesn't suck. Most dark games I barely touch the in-game brightness settings and they're fine.

It just feels to me that their HDR settings are inverted almost.
