You asked. GameTrailers listened. Component vs. HDMI, full RGB, ultra white. Here are the results from a PS3 Test Unit!
Seeing this game in HD in person is jaw dropping. It seriously looks sooo good. COD 4 looks good... but Uncharted is just untouched. Its like WHOA... dude this sh!t looks like a painting! LOL
lol what are the jealous XBOTS disagreeing with?
Guys PLEASE give me bubbles!!! Everyone and I will have 4 or 5 in no time! THANK YOU if u do!
Agree. Bubbles for u (u clearly need it bro)
If I buy a PS3 somewhere down the line, this game will be one of the reasons why. It looks excellent.
the difference is that hdmi has better sound. and component is more prone to shearing and tearing because it uses analog video, and analog is very likely to be interrupted by telephone waves and stuff. since hdmi uses digital instead of analog, it doesn't easily get tearing and shearing whenever there's some other electronic nearby. i'd rather stick to hdmi.
@HarryEtTubMan - If you would drop the constant "Xbot" fanboy banter and make reasonable posts you would have 4 or 5 bubbles in no time.
@ddldave - I didn't know that HDMI reduces screen tearing. I still notice it in Uncharted and in Assassin's Creed with HDMI. Are you saying that it would be worse if I used component?
This game is a true piece of art! its excellent.. Still, gamespot gave it 8/10, what freakin morons! and they wonder how they keep losing credibility and members!
it has to do with RGB full range /partial range
If put to Full Range the picture quality looks much sharper with more colours
HDMI/Component wont make any difference
Dont know about Gametrailers vid since i myself is seeing a diiference on Full Range RGB
Here is assassin's creed comparisons
GT is on a damage control
@power of green
did you even read what GT said -- they were actually using a ps3 DEV kit to record HDMI streams since you cannot do that on your normal PS3
I own both ps3 and xbox 360 as well.
power do look at this rather than trolling :-
theres huge difference between Full Range and Partial Range
I tested the settings myself on my 60" samsung LCD.
see this too :-
GT said they couldn't record tho HDMI therefore component is used. And of course then they couldn't get Full RGB tho component.
Its doesn't?, they're showing the difference between what they have done in the past and what you Sony fanboys wanted them to do. Which I can't see any changes.
Nobody asked for a comparison between 2 different cables mate... People just asked to turn RGB to full instead of limited, that's where the big difference is and believe me that's not a very difficult thing to do. GT clearly doesn't want to do this and clearly thinks that the majority of people visiting their site are pretty dumb also...
Also I believe you can see the irony of you calling someone else a fanboy
im not a big fan of power of green but i do agree with him that gt are doing this to try and prove a point. although there is improvement in sharpness. i dont see washed out colors in the component feed like people were moanin about. btw uncharted is a class game. get it
@zambrota. jus checked out the assassins creed comparison and there is defo a differance.
360 will NEVER be able to do that.
have you seen Gears?
uncharted >>>>>> Gears
Uncharted looks really good, no doubt, but its engine isnt as good as the unreal engine. as far as gears of war goes, both consoles are capable of producing better graphics, as seen by unreal 3, not a great game but the graphics, though the same engine, are a abit better than gears.
i own a ps3 and not a 360 but to say that uncharted looks better than anything on the xbox 360 is stupid.
what are u smoking seriously?
I have both Gears and Unreal Tournament 3.
I can say that Uncharted looks much better than anything we have seen so far on consoles.
Yes i agree the mighty Crysis looks better than Uncharted but excepting that nothing on ps3 or xbox 360 can even challenge Uncharted.
Area 51 uses Unreal engine 3,huxley ,dark sector all uses Unreal 3.
Do you even them getting close to Uncharted.
Do you see Gears on xbox 360/Unreal tournament 3 on ps3 getting even close to Uncharted?
i own both ps3 and xbox 360. I own utIII on ps3, gears on xbox 360 and Uncharted on ps3.
yeah im sorry unchartd has good graphics but to say 360 cant do that is blind and stupid, gears of war beats that game hands down, as does bioshock, and im sorry but the gameplay in uncharted gets boreing verry quickly, yes ive played it, its not the godsend 360 killer that sony fans make it out to be, but when your console is getting cained by the opposition i guess its ok to clutch at straws
just hurtful to your fanboy feelings, the 360 has a gimped architecture that will NEVER allow a dev to make full use of all 6 threads.
Ok... I will not comment on whether the 360 can or cant do anything like Uncharted. I cannot read the future, I have a guess but who really cares what my predictions are?
Anyway to say that Gears looks better than Uncharted is rediculous. UT3 looks just like gears and I can say without a doubt that Uncharted does have the best graphics on any console to date. To deny it is either pure ignorance or fanboyism... er... is there a difference?
Uncharted does have great graphics. And it is a great game, too. I don't think that Gears of War really compares, but I do think that BioWare is giving it a run for it's money with Mass Effect. Mass Effect's environments aren't as lush, but it isn't set in a tropical jungle, either.
I do think that as of right now Uncharted definitely has the edge graphically, but I think that the best is still yet to come for both consoles.
im sorry but to those who think uncharted is better looking then gears of war...stop dreaming! uncharted is a good looking game, the animation looks bad though and yes uncharted is just dude raider, been there doen that
how can uncharteds plastic doll faces compare to gears? and yes even bioshock shows uncharted up with its water lighting and particle effects, its the ps3 thats gimped, with its strict ram limitations it would strugle to pull off the textures and effects in bioshock without being dumbed down or screwing up the frame rate
but yes uncharted is good ill give it that much, i got bored quickly with it though, its just climb shoot climb shoot, but why say its better then gears? cos its clearly not, i suggest some of you get new glasses
So they lied when they said they couldn't capture over HDMI and instead of redoing a multiplat game comparison go with an exclusive game.
You can't trust them now unless in the future they compare both games over HDMI on both systems at their best.
GT is on damage control indeed and this isn't helping.
Cant tell difference unless im actually watching it on hd tv.
Just change your RGB setting from Partial to Full
You will see that there seems to be more Colour and the picture will look much sharper
If you have Ac/darkness/any game just try it on your ps3 on the 2 settings. you will see huge difference
Okay, if everything looks better when set to RGB full then why isn't that the standard setting?
Anyways, only difference I could tell was sometimes the HDMI was lighter and there was a slight green/cyan cast (may be the green reflecting from the foliage) on the close ups.
lol, this game looks nothing like either of those on my TV.
Are the xbots getting uglier? Those probably are their real pictures right!!
Maybe these vids aren't doing justice, but I haven't noticed any differences between the two. The same for the RGB comparison.
Vids aren't doing it justice. On my own PS3, I notice a big difference.
There is huge difference
My HDtv doesn't have HDMI (I need to upgrade). I haven't messed with any of the appearance features like RGB. Are they HDMI exclusive?
Unfortunately, I believe they are HDMI exclusive.
And it looks vastly superior to what we're seeing here. God I hate GT videos, they always look so crappy. Gamersyde has much better quality vids.
That's where I go for my Gameplay video needs. Great ten minutes of gameplay vids.
I'm done with GT
that is not HDMI 1.3 compatible
I was thinking that too.
chalk this one up to ignorance but what TV's really support 1.3?
I don't think they record the vid tho the TV. So it won't matter as they connected the recording device to the PS3.
I'm using a Component connection, and the picture quality on my tv (not resolution, of course) looks better than the 'component' video that Gametrailers put up. Seems like they're just doing damage control to prove that there's little difference between component and hdmi...when really the argument is RGB Limited vs RGB Full.
Like Mullet, I recommend Gamersyde as they provide perfect-quality gameplay footage of both PS3 and 360 titles.
they are trying to fooling us with this video so that we think that it looks the same with both video outputs,see the video at 2:39 where it says hdmi and you will know what i mean.
More retarded videos from GT. What happened to the handshake? How did you manage to pull this off?
-We used a PS3 test unit which has the option to disable HDCP."
Not sure, but they probably used component for both and said one of them is HDMI..
I noticed the hair looks sharper in HDMI and the explosion was a little more clear. But, When I played the game the graphics were better than both HDMI/component that are presented in the video. I had the Full range on and used HDMI.. The game looks astonishing, no question, its one of the best games I have ever played...
Take a look at the scene where he lights up the room!!!!! It's clearly a difference.
This is not right...there suppose to be a noticeable difference between the 2
Didn't they just state late last week early this week, that they COULD NOT capture video in HDMI. All of a sudden they can.
HAHAHA this is a joke, damage control is all it is.
Secondly when and I mean WHEN!! have they ever been able to perfectly sync a video for a compression. Adding a black bar in the middle of the screen doesn't make this a comparison.
Nobody should take this video seriously, this was trying to prove their point of no difference when all PS3 owner know differently.
My guess is both of these are set to RGB = Limited lol.
hmmm, i might need laser vision surgery, but from the video there doesnt seem to be much of a difference
I don't think it's possible to capture video from hdmi, but I still don't get how they did it.
the scene where they light up the room is different.
I hate how they compare videos like that. it doesn't do any justice. why not just do split screen with the exact same action on both screens.
Lets see, the were differences if u loooked carefullly enuf, in the jungle it looked "washed out" with the component cables and the colors with the hdmi seemed richer and darker. it also looked a bit sharper wih the hdmi cables.
Agreed, these videos look like crap.
i think i need my eyes check up cuzz i saw no diff?!! or just more of sonys hdmi 1.3 bs?!!
read my comments above
well depends if ppl look carefully at the surroundings, i noticed alot theres a pretty big difference if u think about it.
so you show me a vid of Assassins Creed? wtf?
Maby they are f***ing with us.
Something stinks with this video I swear to God. Did they have RGB Full enabled? No way are they trying to tell me that their previous comparisons were representative of the games. That is bull. I'm tired of this anyway.
I'm done with GT
you can see that the colors are slightly better in the hdmi shots. but the difference isn't as big as everyone expected it to be. anyways, i trust my own tv more than theirs anyways.
anywho, i get you to 11 bubbles, you get me to ten. deal? haha
me either think so.
If the RGB full range is enabled, the difference would appear more clearly...
They should've used a multi-platform title for the comparison, because the audience was complaining about their biased comparisons. Instead, they go and use a Playstation 3 exclusive, which is FULLY optimized for the machine. They fail.
either way....the game looks damn sexy :)
There is only way to find out. Buy the game, a 1080p TV and a HDMI cable. and tell your parents to give you the crappy TV in the basement.
Ok yea.. Component vs. HDMI GREAT!
What resolution are they both taken in? Either you are trying to make us all out to be fools, or indeed GameTrailers are the fools. We know component is @ 720(progressive I'm assuming). What is HDMI; 720? 1080? please it looks like GT is in need for some new management because they are playing damage control,UNFORTUNATELY, its just creating more damage.
Secondly, how can they do a comparison video when it doen't even run in HD? What is this SD stuff. NOT a valid comparison video in SD.
Third, umm I dont know how to say this exactly but... PS3 TEST Unit? WTF?! (I hope they mean Dev. kit)
-Here is a test video comparing RGB Full with ultra white vs RGB limited on a "test" machine. It doesn't run the same as any of our "real" ps3's.
There is a Big difference From RGB limited to RGB Full. (You have to see it with your own eyes. Believe me. Look at all the other ps3 owner on here saying "big difference")
-just so everyone knows, it is impossible to capture video from a HDMI device that has HDCP. (every ps3 has HDCP except the dev machines can disable this).
its funny that there were 42 comments and no xbots coming to talk their load of BS....is it that they steer clear of games that they know are good?
i find it strange that there is so much animosity over a crap game, but when faced with a really beautiful game they show none toward ps3 owners. i guess they were picking their jaws up off the ground.
now that my rant is over about that, u can see in the darker colours, ones that blend or are close to shadows there is more intensity in the colour....what i dont understand about it though, is that even if they found a way to capture HDMI, then this is a raw compression of that data...but it still looks better on my HDTV.
Uncharted looks *NOTHING like that on *MY TV.
the colors are vibrant, textures sharp. it's *BEAUTIFUL.
Game Trailers blows.
and the problem isn't between Component and HDMI. the problem is with them *REFUSING to use the RGB Full settings on the Playstation 3.
i've been using the RGB and Super White settings since they became available, and i always wondered why the games running on my system looked *DIFFERENT than what they're videos were showing.
oh yeah, and i thought they *COULDN'T capture with HDMI, right?
fricking *LIARS. i'm done with that site. i'm getting my vids from places like Gamersyde (which i did before GT). hell, even Stage 6 has better videos than GT. hypocritical, lying, bias bastards.
*EDIT - what's also funny, is that this video is *NOT representative of exactly *HOW AMAZINGLY DRAWDROPPING the visuals in Uncharted actually are. i'm telling you, there are parts in this game where you just want to set the controller down and *STARE. and it's not just one or two parts, it's practically the *ENTIRE game. not even the *DEMO of Uncharted fully encapsulates how gorgeous this game is, and i thought the demo was pretty damn impressive.
"Uncharted looks *NOTHING like that on *MY TV. "
Exactly, it's the settings no YOUR TV. Not the game itself.
*WHAT are you talking about?
the game looks vibrant and colorful on my roommate's TV too.
are you saying that the game *DOESN'T look vibrant and colorful on an HDTV?
i beg to differ.
my point, is that the video quality of this trailer is low quality. my other point (stated in the post below), is that Gametrailers is trying to throw off the argument, by comparing two things that *WERE NOT at the heart of the issue to begin with.
the problem was *NEVER HDMI vs COMPONENT.
the problem was RGB LIMITED vs RGB FULL.
with limited, the colors of games are washed out. with full, the colors are vibrant.
when i first got my Playstation 3, i tinkered with the console settings for a bit.
when i finally got my HDTV, i spent a good 30 minutes or so, fiddling with the settings on my TV until it was to my likings.
when the RGB FULL and Super-white settings became an option in a later firmware date, i turned it on, and was *VERY VERY impressed with the immediate difference in picture quality. especially when RGB FULL is turned on, Superwhite didn't seem to make that big of a difference in the picture quality.
i don't know what your point was, but i thought i'd clarify my stance. the truth is, i watched this "HD" video, and came to the conclusion that Uncharted doesn't look like that on my TV. for one, the picture is much sharper. crystal clear, actually. and two, the colors aren't as muted.
once again, i think Gametrailers *DID NOT turn on RGB Full when doing this video, then tried a slight of hand trick, by making the issue about HDMI vs COMPONENT, which WAS NOT the original complaint. slick bastards.
This looks much much brighter and fuzzier than on my Sharp with HDMI :S
like it's a dispute between component and HDMI, when that's *NOT what people are contesting.
what we're contesting is Game Trailer *NOT using the RGB FULL option in the PS3 when doing their comparisons. it's already been proven, *REPEATEDLY, that when RGB is set to LIMITED on the PS3, the games aren't as vibrant and colorful. when RGB is set to *FULL however, the contrast is much better, with blacks, blacker, textures sharper, and the color palette more, well, *COLORFUL.
they're trying to make the complainers look like idiots to those that don't fully understand the conflict.
i guarantee there'd be a difference if they ran the game (over HDMI), with RGB set to Limited, then with RGB set to Full. i'm sure they tested it, saw the difference, *KNEW they were in the wrong, and decided on this spin-tactic.
and people think the console manufacturers are spin-doctors. please. they got *NOTHIN' on these idiots.
