I'm not "wowed", but console wise it looks "next gen" I guess.

Well, I'm pretty impressed by some of these games. I honestly wasn't very impressed with Sony's E3 showing, but these pics look pretty damn good. I'm very intrigued by the game Africa. Unfortunately, I have no idea what that game is about. I heard they showed a video of the game at the TGS press conference, and it showed a cheetah sprinting across the African plains, and it looked really cool. I wonder if you get to actually be an animal, or what. That game could be very interesting.


Hot Shots Golf, looks really good to me too. I've always liked that series, and this looks like a game that will be very fun, while at the same time being a visual stunner. Fatal Inertia looks pretty cool, I wonder if it could be the new "Wipeout" ? Some of the games were unimpressive though. The newest pics of Metal Gear Solid 4 actually are kinda underwhelming.


Anywho, at least for the people that do sell their kidney's to get this system, they might have a few games that will absolutely knock their socks off in the visuals department. Hopefully the gameplay will be there too, and hopefully these games aren't delayed way into 2007.

They sure look like it! LOL


Actually, you have to wonder if those games will really look that good when you get the real system and get it hooked up to your TV. Even on a HDTV I wonder if they will really look that good. If they do really look that good, then I think you can safely say that the PS3 is going to be the graphical powerhouse of this generation. Of course, being the graphical powerhouse means virtually nothing if past history is any indication, in fact, going back in video game history, the most powerful console doesn't win the war 8 out of 10 times.

It all looks pre-rendered to me. I'm skeptical as to these shots being representative of PS3's real-time rendering power. For one, there is no life bars, hud or anything to suggest these are actual gameplay shots. I can't see where the big deal is if it's prerendered...

For years isnt true, but you can get better gfx on PC games of course. The price is much higher tho. To get a top notch gaming PC you must atleast use $2000.

The Final Fantasy screens and possibly that hovercraft shot are pre rendered, the rest looks in-game. Looks sweet anyway :)

Those animals in "Africa" don't really look all that realistic. They are quite rough around the edges (both Rhino and the Hippos)

That and:

I want pictures from games that make me go "DAMN THAT *IS* NEXT GEN!!"

The CPU you need to run Crysis on recommended settings costs about the same as the whole PS3 so its not really relevant to compare these. This thread is about PS3 games tho, not PC :p

The "games" don't look gorgeous -- the screenshots do. Since I saw the 64 Marios walking around and then experienced actual games on the N64, I'm very mistrustful.

BUT after having the 360 for 4months now I'm sure about one thing: the lamento about the lack of "next gen" in the graphics department is utter nonsense. The 360 can produce graphics two classes better than the most recent old "gen," and so will the PS3.

Games look fantastic, let's hope they will play as they look.

BTW, it looks Hot Shots Golf won't be ready for launch, and this goes for a lot of other titles. Ridge Racer 7, however, is already completed and will be a launch title for sure.

I dunno, doesn't look any better then some of the 360 games. Pretty is one thing, but who gives a rats ass unless they play good.

Yeah they look about 360 quality to me, you gotta remember, most of those shots are probably not actual gameplay sequences.

Neo Rasa
09-22-2006, 11:53 AM
I'm not going to speak for the rest, but those Fatal Inertia screens are taken from the E3 2005 cg movies. Hot Shots Golf is the only one in there that looks like its ingame due to the jagged character models. Lair ought to actually look that good though since Factor 5 is involved. I wish they'd stop being idiots and make a new Turrican game.

09-22-2006, 02:40 PM
The only thing I was trying to say is that these new screens look pretty damn good. Of course, how the games play is another question, and whether they honestly look like this is another question. But at least these games don't look like shit in their screen shots. The games better look fucking incredible, for them to charge 600 smackers for the damn thing.

This is almost exactly what I was going to say. I didn't think about the abscence of a HUD though.

09-22-2006, 04:00 PM
None of those PS3 screenshots impressed me. Everything just looks the same but high-res. Its like whenever i've seen a 360 in a shop all i see is high-res, ouch this hurts my eyes. On the other hand, those Crysis screenies are lovely.

Maybe the graphics in these games are getting better - maybe they are getting more like the CGI which you get in films, which 9 times out of 10 i dislike the look of. Its wierd that the Crysis screenshots look so awesome to me. Maybe because its not just that they've upped the resolution but done lots with shaders, lighting etc also.

After writing this I'm starting to wonder what 360 and PS3 games look like in non-high-res and if that would make them easier to look at.

Lord_Magus
09-22-2006, 04:30 PM

Indeed! Factor 5 have always produced phenomenal material, and for that reason Lair is the one game I'm really looking forward to seeing in action on the PS3. Oh, and needless to say, just the thought of playing a new (2D) Turrican game on any new console brought a wide smile to my face. Bring it on! :D

09-22-2006, 06:01 PM
First of all, comparing anything to Crysis is unfair. Crytek has publicly stated that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are not powerful enough to run that game... imagine the PC you'd need to have to run it as well as my 360 runs every game I put in it. It is by no means the benchmark by what the "average pc game" will look like, and won't be for years.

Second, the FFXIII shots aren't gameplay? I DON'T BELIEVE YOU. In most games I play they have the camera a foot away from the face of the protagonist looking straight at it. Insert rolling eyes here. They look great but they certainly don't show anything representative of how well the game will look from a playable angle.

Third, as mentioned before, the Fatal Inertia screens are old and completely meaningless.

Fourth, Hot Shots looks exactly as it does right now. I understand it's meant to have a cartoon look, but holy fucking jaggies.

And finally, to Julio III, I suggest you gouge your eyes out because there is clearly something wrong with the set you've got in your face right now. High res hurts your eyes? How does that make any kind of sense? You suspect that the current crop of X360 titles are simply Xbox games with high res textures and rendering? Thats... retarded. I'm not sure if you're aware, but there were quite a few "high res" titles in the original Xbox library, that were rendered in 720p just like the 360. Here is a fantastic example:

Forza:
http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/2005/017/920720_20050118_screen024.jpg

Forza 2:
http://img82.imageshack.us/img82/5848/02cm4.jpg

The Forza 2 image doesn't even have AA applied. It'll look better in motion. The Forza 1 image DOES have AA applied as it's a pre-release press screenshot. It doesn't look as good in motion.

It seems people like to remember things better than they were, like someone who isn't really into games who thinks DS 2D games look like NES games. But how you can remember things better than they currently are is beyond me.

I agree. The only screenshot I believe to be actual in-game is Hot Shots.
I'm holding judgement until I see footage of these games actually running in real-time during gameplay.

Crysis is just plain ridiculous. I haven't been a PC gamer, since before the Dreamcast launched. I was a PC gamer for a very brief period of time, from late 1996 to 9.9.99 Once the Dreamcast hit, I went back to consoles, and I haven't been a PC gamer since, but Crysis is almost enough to temp me back into the world of PC Gaming. Of course, the reality check is the fact that I would need to spend about 4 grand trying to build a uber PC to be able to run the thing properly.


So, I'm going to be sticking with console gaming for the forseeable future. I just can't roll with the old ways of upgranding the video card and processor every 8 months. I don't know how those people do it. Those video cards and CPU's are expensive as fuck, but these guys are constantly upgrading them on a regular basis to try to stay cutting edge.

Personally I just buy the used videocard off a friend of mine when HE upgrades. Then i go try one of the games i "missed" because my card sucked, end up not terribly impressed, and reinstall postal 2 or something.

Actually, my PC I bought back in April only set me back around $1500. And that's replacing everything. Normally I "roll over" my monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc. to my new PC (which usually keeps me under $1000), but this time I replaced everything, and even had enough to buy an OEM Windows XP Home disc with my parts. ;)

And the only game I've played maxed out with slowdown is that cutscene in Black & White 2 where all the Aztec (?) warriors are running down the hill to take over a town. Everything else is smooth as silk.

I'm about 95% sure I can Crysis just fine. Now the thing to worry about is DirectX 10 / Shader Model 4.0, but that's still off from being the norm for at least a year, in my opinion.

Not yet. DirectX 10 video cards won't even be released until after Windows Vista drops as far as I know. There's videos of it out there, and it's all running on DirectX 9. :)

To anyone complaining about these not being in-game shots, I hear ya. Afrika looks like a demo Sony put together, not a game (I could be wrong). With the release of this system in less than 2 months, I think it is about time for some more in-game footage. I'm not saying they don't look good, but they are clearly not in-game shots, (with the exception of hot shots and afrika). For 2 months away and $600, I am not impressed.

Daniel Thomas

Well, this is very often the case when a new console launches. The first wave of software titles are typically learning experiences for the developers, and are usually among the weakest games in the overall library. It's only six or eight months later, when the second wave of titles appear, that we see the real goods.

It makes things easier for PS3, since hardly anyone will actually find one in stock until well into 2007. I think the technology of the hardware is amazing, and it's really going to show its power two or three years down the line. The question is whether Sony can sell enough PS3's in order to slow down the bleeding long enough to survive. If they can last the next three years without the stockholders revolting, or without Blu-Ray going bust, they may be in the clear.

I have no idea what Afrika is about, but I really hope it won't be a violent gun game. Not another Doom clone, or another GTA clone, or another Tomb Raider clone, or another Splinter Cell clone. Please please please let it be something new and different.

Dont you belive that this (http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/2006/256/933010_20060915_screen002.jpg) screenshot is in-game? I mean, if you havnt seen it running live on a Wii you wont belive its in-game screenshot, eventho all say it is and thousands of people have tried it, but not you?
