According to 1up.com currently there are 6 games that are playable at TGS in 1080p. What considered to as lofty technical claims by critics and many alike are turning into a tangible reality.
is this to fight the previous article about the 360's 4 1080p games? This is silly. I'll admit it's news, though.
Where is the article about the 360 1080p games? Could someone repost it or point it out?
Xbox 360 will upscale all games to 1080p. The box (as far as I know) does not ouput native 1080p for games. HD-DVDs, though, will be native 1080p. And yes, do a perspective check: Maybe 2% consumers own 1080p HDTVs. And in 5 years, that's projected to still be under 10% even optimistically. 1080p basically doesn't matter, no matter what either side wants to think. But hey, it's nice that both consoles have it now. And maybe 360 will even have some native 1080p games. All 3 people here who have true 1080p will be overjoyed!
if it feels like that, i opened 1up.com, there were 2 pieces of news that were not yet posted so i posted them.(1st being this and second bieng ps3 dashboard & browser) but i agree it is just after the 4 games 360 news
its ok bilal as all this news will produce some sort of flame war. I just want this news to be accepted already.
Something is kinda wrong with this site as it accepts all the PS3 news at the moment and not the Xbox 360 news which is very weird.
yah whats up with the 360 1080p games like doa and lost planet that got denied. It like had 36 comments on it and they erased it. I'd like to hear a reason for this from a moderator.
sometimes it accept news which have already been posted many times and often it doesnt accept very legit news. i think that 4 1080p 360 story didnt make it, was legit i thought. They should have a fixed criteria, not a variable one for news submission.
i suppose i could post it again for the third time.
Because its not true that why the erased it
Here is some footage of 1080p game on PS3 http://www.jeux-france.com/... Damn fine! PS2 graphics in 1080p, what's the use exactly?
That video is so small I can barely see anything!
Maybe their posting one console at a time a day. This back and forth BS is getting old Sony has talked down the 360 and boasting what the PS3 can do. Now their getting desperate with the competing.
Who cares? Unless it is an old atari 2600 game, NEITHER system can run a current gen game at 1080p NATIVELY. They can upmix, but the raw horsepower simply is not there. Anyone who deals with video cards in a PC will tell you the same thing - NEITHER ONE CAN PLAY A CURRENT GEN GAME NATIVELY RUNNING @ 1080P!!!
...Lair is a true next gen title that would even without 1080p blow every 360 game. I also wonder about which 1080p 360 games you are talkin about. Upscaled doesn't count, what I wanna see is true, native 1080p 360 games. I was on 1up and I couldn't find anywhere such an announcement. Is it because 360 isn't capable of it and they took the news down? It seems so, looks like these games were running 15fps LOL The only I could find was: "As far as we can tell, 1080p isn't intended for games, contrary to Sony's approach with PlayStation 3." Dream on MSfanboys and continue Billy to milk you with the way too overpriced accessoires. Twice the size for half the price, thanks Sony :-D
NEW VIDEO OF FORMULA F1 FOR PS3 http://media.ps3.ign.com/me... JUST WOW AMAZING IM SPECHLESS THAT THING INSANE PGR3 YOU GOT ONWED BIG TIME THE GAME %60 COMPLETE AND THEY ALREADY LOOK THAT INSANE HOLY CRAP 360 FANS DON'T WET IN YOUR PANTS
Xbox360 will have 1080p native as well as up scaling 720p & 1080i to 1080p, so basically EVERY game will be 1080p whether up scaled or native. Will PS3 upscale their 720p and 1080i games? Or will it not have the ability to upscale?? I'M JUST CURIOUS!!!
The upscaling patch is just a MS marketing trick. PS3 don't need to upscale to 1080p, cause every TV that's capabale of 1080p will do it. That's why this patch is only a marketing trick, if you have a Tv capable of 1080p, it will do the job, no patch is needed.
Don't 1080p tvs upscale anyway?
I believe (and could be wrong) that there are upscaling 1080p tvs and native 1080p tvs. so I don't think all do, but again, what do I know?
Very few TVs today accepts 1080p input and has a native resolution of 1080p. Of theese few TVs, only a handfull actually displays the input as it is supposed to look, the rest first downscales the picture, does its image optimizing, and then upscales it to 1080p again. This is because of the amount of data in a 1080p frame, which makes image optimizing circuits that handles 1080p native very very expensive. This will ofcourse change in the coming years. TVs that accept 1080p signals will accept lower resolution signals and upscale them as well. Both because not much content is broadcast in 1080p, and because it is almost a free feature with the circuits already in the TV. Really expensive topend TVs will have upscaling capabilities that are superior to what both the PS3 and X360 can deliver (unless MS and Sony has spend a disproportionate amount of money on a good upscaling chip like the Faroudja).
All those connections (composite, component, s-video and VGA) have one thing in common: they carry the video signal in an analog format. What about digital connections such DVI or HDMI? Will there be A/V packs with DVI and/or HDMI connections? If not, will you consider offering that in the future? Todd Holmdahl: Xbox 360 will support HD component video output, which is compatible with nearly every HD-ready TV on the market today. We’re poised to hit the sweet spot of the HD market at launch and as the market matures, and we will provide an HDMI for our customers when it makes sense. The reality is, you don’t need HDMI for HD gaming. I understand the choice of 720p over 1080i because of the fast-motion action sequences involved in gaming; a progressive scan picture is better than an interlaced one for this case, but lately we have seen more and more 1080p capable displays, especially DLP-based flat screens (although 1080p doesn’t belong to ATSC’s specifications for HDTV). The question is, will the Xbox 360 be able to offer a 1080p signal? Is the Xbox 360 GPU powerful enough to render games up to that resolution at playable framerates? Todd Holmdahl: Xbox 360 offers choice for both the game developer and the end consumer. The game developer can create their game in any resolution. The consumer can request any output resolution (480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i). The Xbox 360’s advanced video scaler will scale the game’s native resolution to the end consumer’s requested resolution with extremely high quality output. Bottom line, the games will look amazing. Xbox 360 does not support 1080p at this time. It’s an incremental improvement at an astronomical expense, and we don’t see consumers clamoring for 1080p TVs yet. We will continue evaluate the market and deliver the capability when and if customers want it. As for the GPU, the Xbox 360 has the most powerful GPU of any gaming console; even better, we made specific design choices to enable game developers to render real-time complex scenes at high resolutions with high-quality anti-aliasing. Without our Embedded DRAM on the GPU and the huge 256Gbyes/second dedicated bus from the GPU core to the EDRAM, it is impossible to render true next-generation scene complexity at high-resolution with anti-aliasing. The Xbox 360 has three general purpose cores and three VMX vector units (one per core) while the PS3 has one CPU core, one vector unit, and seven SPEs. These differences found in both consoles’ architectures result in the Xbox 360 having more general purpose power than the PS3 while the PlayStation 3 has more floating-point performance (2 TFLOPs against 1 TFLOP of the Xbox 360 to be precise). Isn’t this a major advantage of the PS3 over the Xbox 360? Todd Holmdahl: No. The PS3’s vaunted teraflop “advantage” is only an advantage on paper, because the PS3’s performance will be limited by its architecture. Real games are about 80% general purpose code and about 20% floating point code. Xbox 360 has three 3.2 GHz general purpose processors to Sony’s one, and it is these main cores, not special purpose SPEs, that are best suited for game code. The PS3’s design requires high levels of floating point performance, because the PS3 GPU is unable to do automatic load balancing between pixels and vertices, so performance will drop off during vertex processing. The PS3’s design requires that the CPU take up the slack. On Xbox 360, we do not plan for the CPU to do any vertex processing at all, which leaves all of the processor’s power for game simulation code. Floating point performance is much more relevant on the GPU, where Xbox 360 has more floating point performance than PS3. Not only does the Xbox 360 GPU have greater raw shader power than the PS3 GPU (240 GFLOPS versus estimated 228.8 GFLOPS on PS3), it will also use more of its power. The Xbox 360’s unified shader model will automatically optimize graphics for each game (vertex or pixel shading), without the developer having to write any extra code. Xbox 360 will also have embedded DRAM to avoid bandwidth bottlenecks and to give developers “free” anti-aliasing to eliminate jagged edges in every game. Both systems have 512 MB of memory, but we gave developers the flexibility to decide how they use it, while Sony’s split memory architecture is more limited in its options. (We actually looked at the split memory architecture and decided not to use it because of those limitations). Sony’s emphasis on certain areas of the PS3’s performance is a nice way to distract attention from the fact that they seem to have no response to Xbox Live. Only Xbox 360 has the hardware, software and services to enable the complete gaming and entertainment experience. http://interviews.teamxbox....
TOPGAMER TO SHUT YOU UP http://media.ps3.ign.com/me... PLZ STOP POSTING OLD FACTS THOSE FACT CAME FROM TEAMXBOX LOL TEAMXBOX KNOW FOR FANBOYISMM ITS OK YOUR JUST JEALOUSES
Yeah man, here is some other new video http://www.jeux-france.com/... GET YOUR CAPS LOCK FIXED MAN Is that why you only have 3 bubbles?
tnks man it looks good to me gt-4 hd only 50%complete http://media.ps3.ign.com/me... dang look at the details compare that to test drive unlimetd can't wait for GT-5
But every PS fan knowns, we are getting the better sack of worms. We've known it from the ps2 era and now the ps3. Halo will now in its 3rd iteration start to drain on people. Look at the GT serious FF series they got liek 13 in teh series and gt has 5. Time will truly tell the tailorship of a game, if it can go to the 4th iteration(although i thought this was there last). Halo is cool and fun, but its the same thing over and over. You'll see the future is here NOv, 17. Welcome the xbox nightmare known as PS3 WoooT!
Every GAMER knows that worms are for birds and games make the console. Furthermore every GAMER knows that the XBOX was more powerfull then the weak PS2. Every GAMER knows that XBL is here for years and it's hard for Sony to even get on the same level, let alone be on first spot in it. Every GAMER knows that the 360 GPU is stronger then the PS3 Nvidia 6800 standardized PC card which can do only simple games on 1080p. Every GAMER knows that the 360 hardware is optimalized for games and the PS3 is just for the non standard BR videoplayer that Sony wants to push in the market. Halo 3 is the last one in the series, but will still be great. Gears of War is the new leader on the xbox platform. Watch and see how it will crush anything on the PS. Gears will take the 360 to the nr. one spot, this Christmas and long after. Nightmare? That are the last and coming months with Sony who can't deliver. Whe've all seen it but still PS fans sh!t in their own eyes. Strange. But many will jump in when they see Gears running this Christmas and Resistance on demopods will look like COD3, but not as good and some aliens added.
If halo in its 3rd iteration is starting to drain on people, what the hell in FF 13 doing for them?
What are the four 360 1080p games?
Blue Dragon Trusty Bell and two others I forgot. Did nobody read the article about the 360 being NATIVE 1080p??? Did the fanboys not read it or are they just saying MS is lying?? Yeah they are so used to getting lied to they think we are too.
...and poor Real Freakio can only resort to some old and biased MS analysis. Unlike for the PS3, there is no dev stating 360 is the most powerful console and unlike for the PS3 there are no true native 1080p games announced. All I could find about 360 and 1080p was this: "As far as we can tell, 1080p isn't intended for games, contrary to Sony's approach with PlayStation 3." Case closed, 360 can't handle it or tell me please where are the games? Dream on MSfanboys and continue Billy to milk you with the way too overpriced accessoires. Twice the size for half the price, thanks Sony :-D
Are you stupid? I normally dont like to go there with people on this forum but I feel this needs to be said: you are either straght up retarded or highyly misinformed. MS is releasing a firmware patch update which will allow games to be developed for native 1080p. It will also allow games that are in 720p and 1080i to be upscaled to 1080p. And thanks for the info joe. I believe I read somewhere else in this thread that the other two games of the four are lost planet and DOA so in total its: DOA Lost Planet Trusty Bell Blue Dragon Also I was just wondering if you are that one sony fanboy "The Truth" that repeatedly said fanboy bs and started flame wars in previous threads
...maybe cause some sites got a call of the sort: "Uhhmmmm well...360 is capable of native 1080p...but...such games run 15fps...and...need at least 3 discs...sorry for that...we give our best...but...that just ain't enough...we can't do wonders with the 360 hardware...and the sad truth is 360 can't handle it" ROFLMFAO
Microsoft doesnt say things without backing them up, unlike sony who says things and doesnt deliver. I dont even need to make a list, you have heard them all before. Microsoft said they would output native 1080p and I believe them, they never lied to me before. The four games that are supposed to be in 1080p, its really up to the developers to make that decision, but I know microsoft is throwing them alot of money to do it. And for the 3 discs, when was that ever a problem? For two weeks, you play the first disc, then the next two weeks you play the 2nd disc, and then after a month you finally get to the 3rd disc. You arent swapping out discs every 10 minutes. Remember PS1?? Multiple discs werent a problem.
ha ha ha ha...did yall read bout ps3's overheating when playing 1080p games? ha ha ha ha...Its only one day and already overheating. WOW....Just what sony and their rabid fans deserve. Thats what happens when you put unproven tech in a machine and push it too hard with 1080p. Thanks Microsoft for putting in proven next gen tech...Here is the link to one of the news about it. Its all over the net. ha ha ha ha http://www.kotaku.com/gamin...
mmm. throw a steak on that grill!
"We've seen a couple of kiosks and machines go down, but can somewhat safely assume this is just software related and not an issue with the PlayStation 3 machines themselves." I like the Sony guy's solution though. My roommate has the same thing going with his 360.
somewhat safely assume
Knowing thats not even close to true the 360's GPU is Xenon its not even as powerful as the GPU for the PS3 knowing your just a 360 fanboy thats not showing the facts and just stating your opinion from your own perspective point of view Lets see compare to the graphics of the PS3 games like MotorStorm and MGS4 and Mobile Suit Gundam and compare them to the 360 games not oohhh! not even close!,TopGamer you are %100 a "Lier!".
So I don't know what,your talking about knowing your just like those other Xbox 360 fans out thier saying that to just protect M$'s reputation when really they have alot of bad rep like Xbox murder trials and the Xbox Live contract that has been ripped from M$ themselve's so you can protect them all you want but there still ain't good as Sony atleast "Sony" hasn't had a news about a gamer that killed thier baby daughter over a PS2 cause she unplugged the cord from his PS2 like the real trial that happened to a real man because he killed his baby daughter over an Xbox and atleast Sony doesn't ripp off contracts like M$ did when they ripped off that contract for Xbox Live and thier going to get sued if they choosed to lol!.
the kid is retarded leave him be.
You knowing how stupid are you when you type your (?) down.
Kinda gives me a confidence booster, you know, makes me feel better about myself...
