I for one will be playing through KZ2 and KZ3 again this year in preparation for KZ:SF...

who's with me? :)
TheTwelve  +   1006d ago
With you, might even do a KZ1 run....haha

I'm not surprised, it was a jump imo, but it didn't seem like a jump 16x the ram would have allowed. To think this is only the beginning, we are in for one heck of a generation. It looks utterly amazing.

It's VRAM - VIDEO RAM! Ps3 doesn't have 8 gig for video guys need to learn to read...jesus fanboys will believe in anything.
Yodagamer  +   1007d ago
Actually if devs wanted to have 8gb devoted to the GPU as vram, they can. This is a benefit of unified memory
EbeneezerGoode  +   1007d ago
Not quite, they'd need to leave a little at least for the CPU (not to mention the OS/Side processor).

He said PS3 anyway for some reason...

and PS4 is unified memory, so you could in theory have 6GB for GPU 1GB for CPU and 1 FOR OS/SIDE PROCESSOR... or a variation on that.
Yodagamer  +   1007d ago
@Ebeneezer with the gpgpu architecture they wouldn't need to use any processors if they decide to put the cpu load onto the gpu it would put the 7 gb onto the gpu.
JasonXS12  +   1007d ago
Not surprising. Shouldn't be that amazing either.
Daves  +   1007d ago
Don't forget sound effect, speech and music need some of that Memory.

Music could well be in memory rather than me streamed.
Daves  +   1007d ago
To the idiot who disagreed...

I see you with your fingers in your ears shaking your head and making silly noises.

There is more than plenty of memory for graphics and audio.

So this demo uses only 1.5 gb of vram of possible of 6-7gb. Sony's PS3 Uncharted 3 utilized only 256 of vram. I could only imagine the possibilities the PS4 holds for developers next gen.

cant wait, naughty dogs are very good developers along with Bethesda
AsimLeonheart  +   1006d ago
Naughty Dog are good but cant quite agree with Bethesda though...
abzdine  +   1007d ago
this is the strength of Sony first party exclusives. i'm not surprised, just remember Uncharted 1 when it first came out, and compare it to Uncharted 3 graphical quality.
Holiday 2013 cannot come soon enough!

Wee need 1080p at 60fps not 30...

LOL, KZ:SF of course gonna look better than Crysis 3 since it is being built on the PS4! -.-' not the X360, PS3, PC just a specific platform. It's still amazing that Crysis 3 can compare to KZ, even look better in some departments.

This demo didn't impress the same way the Killzone 2 demo did in 2005. This demo is probably the equivalent of some of the less great-looking demos from the PS3 reveal. Hopefully :)
Tei777  +   1007d ago
lol, Killzone 2 demo in 2005 was a cgi target render, not in game.

But still, there was no chance we were ever gonna get the same visible leap seen last gen. The only place I think we'll really see that is in effects/particle simulation, where character models and environments move to, its gonna be impressive but not blow your mind. This image is a brilliant demonstration of diminishing returns

I can't wait to see what we get when developers really start using the consoles power. Exciting times to be a gamer
Father Murder X  +   1007d ago
Just a few points. The game wasn't even the best looking gae at the show. They are not getting my money because of graphics. How come no one ever talks about story or gameplay with Killzone. Pretty graphics will only get you so far. Don't forget that Killzone 3 flopped horribly and deeply discounted within a month of being released despite those so called awesome graphics. The killzones games have pretty much been lackluster and it isn't even considered among the big boys in the grand scheme of things.
dafegamer  +   1007d ago
if it's true, it means that crytek really got Killzowned hard
1886afc  +   1007d ago
i really can't take anymore of this delusional console fanboyism. i'm done with this crap.

Welcome to N4G.
Convas  +   1007d ago
Same here. I've had it up to my neck. I've never seen so much idiocy, 'cept on Yahoo's news articles.
givemeshelter  +   1007d ago
Ddue this is to the nation of the retarded. For ANYONE stating that Killzone the first demo we saw looks better then Crysis 2 or 3 on a high end PC only GAME on consoles. It does not.
But alas...this is N4G.COM...Continue
Animal Mutha 76  +   1007d ago
I really wouldn't read too much into this at this stage.

The portion of the game we saw is only a level demo I would guess. Also PS3 used a lot of texture streaming to allow the devs to work beyond the ram limitation.

Its safe to assume that the streaming wasnt needed for this demo hence the higher mem usage.

Im curious to what the final OS footprint will be. How much ram will be available in reality....
leogets  +   1007d ago
like the pc community say crysis3 can't be fully shown to its pure awesomeness over YouTube etc. well my answer to that is well neither can kz sf.. it looks stunning at alpha. imagine it in the flesh and final build..
hobohunterz  +   1007d ago
Let the pc elitists enjoy their Benchmarks while console gamers enjoy games.
alousow  +   1007d ago
naughty dog will blow our mind
MoreRPG  +   1007d ago
And this is just the beginning.

I can't wait to see what a next gen God of War or Uncharted will looks like.
madduey  +   1006d ago
Sorry dude I hit disagree by mistake!!! ND and SSM will not let us down!!
KillrateOmega  +   1007d ago
Not surprising that when you mention the graphical quality of a console game all the PC gamers inevitably bring up their specs and at some point mention Crysis.

i was exprecting alot more then that, the more i hear about and see the ps4 the less i want it,very dissapointed
TrevorPhillips  +   1007d ago
console hardware is always great, ps4 is turning out really good. ps3 only had 512mb of total ram, and it lasted a good 6 to 7 years with graphics, and this shadow fall is using only 1.5 gigs of ram, all i can say is WOW! I cant wait to see what 8 gigs can do.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1007d ago
Damn 1.5 of VRAM! And they can shoot for even more! The power of PS4 people!
CrustifiedDibbs  +   1007d ago
Killzone... The crysis of the playstation... It amazes me that the same people that's bash crysis for being all about graphics, praise the kz series. Kz is all about the graphics as well. Kz is just another average, pretty shooter with a borderline retarded story and characters, and very standard fps gameplay that get overhyped by the fanboys on this site.

It looks like console fanboys are even bigger graphics whores than pc gamers. If they weren't, kz wouldn't be the only ps4 game getting talked about on this site.

I'm pumped for ps4, but ever since the ps4 was announced, Sony fanboys have once again gone to full on idiot mode.

I will agree that killzone is a bit dull in terms of story; visuals are of course fantastic. The strength of killzone lies in its amazing multiplayer offering. The multiplayer can be pretty competitive and intense. The graphics also make the experience that much better. I couldnt say the same thing for crysis in terms of their multiplayer offering.

"So Killzone" what game is that? Gotta love unnecessary conjunctions.

That, by the way, was expected. It's a launch title after all.
LAWSON72  +   1007d ago
Stop comparing youtube videos. That and the ps4 8gb ram is not all for games there is an os to run that probably has a very intensive sharing feature. Disagree= retard count
MacDonagh  +   1007d ago
Oh c'mon guys. Didn't Aliens:Colonial Marines teach you anything? You're all setting yourself up for a fall.
--Onilink--  +   1007d ago
correct me if im wrong... but how much of a difference could it be if on those 1.5Gb they were already using hi-res textures...? having more RAM available just means they will have more textures stored, it doesnt actually mean it will look better. Not everything is related to RAM you know...

Now if they were using low-res textures (which didnt look like it), then it could definitely look better with more RAM involved
LAWSON72  +   1007d ago
Wrong ram equals better graphics you wouldnt understand you dont believe in magic
