Resistance: Burning Skies screens – best looking game on Vita right now?

New screens for Resistance: Burning Skies show off new monsters, gun and a levels, all rendered in super ‘ooooh-o-vision’. (PS Vita, Resistance: Burning Skies)

Those do look pretty good.

Screenshots look gorgeous but they don't reflect gameplay. The frame-rate on this game is atrocious, they better have a fix for that.

That's very old footage of the alpha build of the game..

Here's footage of the final retail build:

As you can see, the frame-rate is very smooth.

Come on now.. that video was posted last year.
Lazy_Sunday  +   1285d ago
Thank you for proving me wrong. Multiplayer framerate is still dipping a lot, but that single player footage is spot on silky smooth. Dammit I want it now.

According to that disagree, I don't want the game anymore.

I dont see how you can say that its fps are dipping a lot. the only time it seems like it is when the player is shaking the vita around. Thats when it looks like the frames are "dropping a lot". I doubt it has FPS issues. but who knows. i could be wrong.
kingdavid  +   1284d ago
I still think the vita is capable of more. That screenshot with the bicentennial celebration banner doesnt look the greatest. I assume thats more down to the game's art style than the console itself.

Maybe its because the vita's smaller image has been bloated into a larger one though.

Definitely. I was kind of shocked when I first saw them. Can't even tell it's a handheld game.

can't wait to get my Vita after E3. Anyone knows how is the online for resistance 3? its like 20 bucks gamefly so i was thinking about getting it

heard single player in R3 is pretty good
Rynx  +   1285d ago
The online is pretty good too. Yeah, it's a step down from the past two entries, but on its own, it's still pretty fun.

if you have played a handful of FPS online, probably any one of them are better than resistance online.

I'll never understand how they can have a fun engaging single player then half ass the online to where it feels like you're shooting nerf weapons and hit detection/collision/animations are very generic.

If you have to think about what I just said then you probably have no idea what I'm talking about and would expect a disagree to follow...

I'm talking about R1-3, games I've owned. I haven't played/seen anything for the vita yet so I cannot say anything about that.

the co-op in R2 is a blast. R3 online is OK, but not great or terrible. I think 2 is the best.
EZMickey  +   1284d ago
If only Resistance could be one of the best looking PS3 games.
TVippy  +   1281d ago
They do look ok for a portable game. But no, not on a level of PS3, as they claim. Looks definitely worse thatn Resistance 1. Don't forget that it runs in a lower resolution with lower framerate.
Emilio_Estevez  +   1281d ago
It also runs on a tiny screen, so it will look better in actual use
remanutd55  +   1285d ago
we are less than a week away from release!!!!! i can't wait.

Nah, gotta get rid of that color filter their using that makes it look brown/beige overall.

Whats with tlou?
KillerPwned  +   1285d ago
Wow this does look pretty damn nice I would say it beats Uncharted for now....
JoGam  +   1285d ago
Hell no dude. Dont get me wrong it looks good but Uncharted looks better.
KillerPwned  +   1285d ago
For me personally it is hard to tell I am just going off of memory. A side by side comparison would be better. No matter both games are flagship titles for the Vita with great gameplay, visuals, and story.

I am pumped to play this online! If anyone is interested in having someone with a vita to play this with PM me your ID.

Im not entirely sure it beats Uncharted. I would probably have to see them side by side to make a proper comparison. However, Resistance sure is the best looking game from a scale standpoint. It looks like the levels are decently open.
TheModernKamikaze  +   1285d ago
Best game for the vita I have seen so far.
cpayne93  +   1285d ago
2nd best. Gravity rush interests me the most atm.
kingdavid  +   1284d ago
No doubt about that.

Resistance burning skies would just be an average looking game on consoles.

Gravity rush would make my jaw drop even on consoles.
TheModernKamikaze  +   1284d ago
Best game I'VE SEEN SO FAR.
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1285d ago
Most definitely.
SandWitch  +   1285d ago
Guns look amazing. Though surroundings doesn't look very good in the screens, but it should look nice on small Vita's screen.

Not sure if it's the best looking game on Vita. Uncharted is beautiful (especially jungles) and Wipeout is nearly perfect in terms of graphics. But Resistance looks very good too.

Unexpecta  +   1285d ago
Yeah for sure the game will look a lot better on the Vita's screen.

The games you mentioned must be in every PSVita gamer's collection because they simply show the power of this handheld. It literally dwarfs what other handhelds are capable of and I'm very happy picking mine up on February 15th, 2012.
vividi  +   1285d ago
looking very good, I cant wait to a play a multiplayer deadmatch in my vita
Spenok  +   1284d ago
Most definitely agreed. Cant wait till next tuesday xD

This will have to be platinumed for sure :D
neutralgamer19  +   1285d ago
Ahhhhh i cant wait havent been so hyped for a game since uc3!!! (oh im lying star hawk too) but yessssss i love resistance franchise!!!!
Brosy  +   1285d ago
Resistance is a generic shooter at best. We all know where you need to go to get the best shooters.

Wow I can't believe that you are claiming that the 3DS is better for shooters than the Vita. I guess you love playing shooters ala PSP with only one circle pad or with an atrocious circle pad accessory that isn't as good as the dual analog sticks on the Vita.

BTW people must be dying to buy a Vita because they don't stop talking about a price drop announcement at E3. Honestly I don't believe that Sony will drop the price but instead they will start to bundle Vitas with memory cards and a game (like in Europe)

You people amaze me.

Not sure if trolling

Or really didn't get my sarcasm
cpayne93  +   1285d ago
@mastercornholio its a joke.

OT: Those are some awesome looking bosses. I was afraid burning skies would be way too small scale, but it looks pretty epic.

Hopefully this E3 will definitly remember us PS Vita´s existence with a price drop.

It should be a minor price $250 for the 3g and $199 for wifi only model.The thing is worth every penny imo,just their isn't that one game that screams out buy me quite yet.
neutralgamer19  +   1285d ago
In response to grly i mean brosy lol

Yeah let me go play galo lol as generic as they come hahahahah. You wish your system did visuals as good. This looks better than most games on your console of choice which is sad.

Hopefully Sony advertises this game a lot.
The first FPS on Vita. It's a HUGE deal.
Skate-AK  +   1285d ago
That last screen is awesome but I do have a question. Those screens are 1,920x1,088 so what does that mean since the Vita doesn't have that high of a resolution? Does it mean those screen are more detailed then when played on the Vita?
Krew_92  +   1285d ago
Yeah they'll look better, since they're stretched out as a bigger image. They'll be condensed on the Vita screen and every little detail will look much better since it will be much smaller.

Also the Vita's OLED screen will make it look better than a standard computer monitor, unless you own a good one of course.
srcBFMVBMTH  +   1285d ago
If Nihilistic Software gets this game right. I hope they could pick up the Resistance IP from Sony and develop for PS3/4/5 etc, in replacement of Insomniac. Since they aren't gonna make anymore Resistance games. :(

Though I could see Guerrilla Games do justice to the Resistance IP as well. :)

Considering that this is on a handheld(lets not forget that), this looks damn good.
Shok  +   1285d ago
Wow, I'm very impressed. And it would look even better on the actual screen cause these are blown-up images.
archemides518  +   1285d ago
bullshots, pretty sure this game doesn't run at the vita's native resolution...much less super 1080p or whatever those shots are rendered as.
Platinum_k  +   1284d ago
I'm disappointed that they stopped the series for Playstation 3.

Resistance 3 did not get the recognition it deserved!
BABYLEG  +   1284d ago
Is this a ps3 spin off
TheLastGuardian  +   1284d ago
I'm probably getting a Vita next month and this might be the first game I get. I just hope it turns out good because the last game Nihilistic developed (PS Move Heroes) was awful. Those screens do look really good though.
Ethereal  +   1284d ago
Looks good!
Nivalis  +   1284d ago
I've been playing it for the past two weeks, it doesn't look that good in person.
Britainz-Fin3st  +   1284d ago
Would i be right in assuming that it would actualy look better on the Vita because the image is actualy smaller making it look like a better reseloution, like waching a film on iphone?
CaptainSheep  +   1284d ago
Awesome! Can't wait for the release... :D
n64dude  +   1284d ago
Does anybody know if the game uses the full resolution of the Vita? I hope so.
