Fields on PS2 v. XBOX

I recently got a chance to play Madden 2006 on the PlayStation 2, and I must say, the fields on that version of the game totally eat up the fields on Madden 2006.

I don't think it was my TV, because we played on just about the same size (not huge, not small, just about medium). I do think his screen was a bit darker, but, judging by the player uniforms, it wasn't extremely dark.

Anyway, we played at Ralph Wilson Stadium (home of the Buffalo Bills). They have changed to field turf in real life, and the PS2 version mimiced that. The field was a lot darker and more realistic looking. However, on the XBOX version of the game, the field still looks like chalky astro turf.

Anyone else notice this, or is it just me?

*It's not a gamebreaker, but I am disappointed by it playing in the Bills stadium for 50% of my games.

Are you using a boob tube or a HDTV the xbox version id ypgbr component optimized.
I play with component cables using progressive scan RED, GREEN , BLUE

looks good to me and in fact on the xbox version players leave turf marks and
tracks in the dirt when they get tackled and slide on it. You can see chunks of dirt flying off the cleats of in some stadiums!

Re: Fields on PS2 v. XBOX

You can see the difference in IGN's H2H:

http://insider.ign.com/articles/643/643377p1.html

The best fields seem to go in this order: Gamecube, PS2, Xbox/PC

I don't know why the most powerful systems get the worst fields, but whatever.
