Gamepro counts down the 8 most visually impressive games from TGS '06. The number one games was kind of shocking, but all of the games look amazing.
...i think this list was supposed to be comprised of (playable) games, hence MGS4 coming in last and GOW not being included at all (at least i think it wasn't playable at TGS?). kind of a shocker to see RR7 at #1, but hey, there you have it. nothing concrete, nor indicative of what will actually happen once gamers have a chance to choose for themselves. but still a fair summation of the graphical capabilities of both systems.
MGS wasn't playable, was it?
MOST of those games weren't playable. The guy who wrote this article must have been on crack...
Ridge Racer 7 at #1? Yeah right! Even for a Sony fanboy, there was GT:HD. If you're not a Sony fanboy, Forza had a showing. Oh, but I forgot:
IT'S RIDGE RACER!
And apparently, that's all that matters.
Uh, guys, I don't think you realize that the piece was highlighting the "Top 8 Games", not a ranked, "Top 8 Games, In Order".
Once I saw they didn't include Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey which showed actual gameplay. I knew this article was all but bias.
i think they were talking about graphics, not gameplay.
Wow. I would've chosen Motorstorm, or F1. But yeah, looks like they only counted playable titles (which makes sense).
Who played this one?
Its a tad biased being since it comes from Mr. Marbles.....He is the Sony editor at Gamepro.com. Its neat to see he actually tried to be fair by naming a couple 360 games in his top 8. But he clearly favors the ps3 in all of his editorials...being that he is the Sony editor for the site. We'll see who wins the most awards from this years show.
Pic comparison for MGS4
most of the people at the show seem to say differently, but everyon is entitled to their opinion...
MS should have blown away Sony at TGS, but they got knocked out. This just shows that now Sony has entered the ring and is begginging to pummel MS once again. Just 2 games for MS, thats just pathetic. 360 has been out for about a year now, and they are getting their butts kicked by LAUNCH titles of the PS3. Damn, its really over folks, its really over for MS.
Can we put aside the fanboyism for a second? I understand this was written by the PS3 editor, but I'm not sure that is any excuse.
Can anyone on this site, honestly, from the bottom of their hearts say that Virtua Tennis looks better than GOW? I know half the people on here hate the 360, but to say that the tennis game has graphics that outshine GOW is insane.
I don't know if they considered Gears of War for this, it wasn't playable on the show floor because of someone said it was too violent for public viewing. Anyways, why can't a tennis game have great graphics? I've only seen two Gears of War videos because most of the stuff has been behind closed doors. The graphics are really good but its not like its the best looking game ever, and it if it was considered for this then it probably got looked over because it wasn't in 1080p while a lot of the competition was.
the videos i have seen from gow were by far not impressive. its very likely that other games have better graphics. but i think they didnt consider gow. on the other hand there are many games for me with far better graphics.
...may actually be the best looking game ever. Name one that looks better, that is out or coming out by the end of the year. The only game that I have seen that has better graphics is Crysis.
Its totally bias and i know you cant see it because your blind. I thought you only had 3 bubbles. Do you keep changing your name? adding letters?
You say stuff to me like ban his ip address, but all in all you are no better you are attacking Sony fanboys for there say, so that makes you a MS fanboy, your opinion is now worthless just like THE MART!
He's got a point though. Jin's talking out of his @ss about the ps3 giving a knock out blow (or w/e) when its not even out. It would have even been better to say the ps2 than the ps3.
because most of them were PS3 games, 2 Xbox 360 games and i like both of them, Lost Planet and DOAX2, but really, VT3 is crap. Top Spin is a beeter tennis game, and plus i dont even like tennis, so reaqlly i dont know how it got on that list. But a pretty fair, not great list. Some other titles like ohh say Gears of War, and maybe White Knight. But hey its a PS3 website, so obv. the favor goes in for PS3.
I agree completely with hyperbear and zypher. Just as they said, this was written by the playstation editor for gamepro so of course there is going to be a bias especially when lost odyssey and Gears of War wasnt even on the list.
true that! Where the hell did lost odyssey go. All i heard about that game was how amazing it looked in motion.
ten of 360's hot titles are exclusives, while 6 of the PS3's hot titles are exclusives. not bad for either really, especially considering that for the PS3 these are launch titles. but still, this is just another site's opinion.
please this list is a joke ! smackdown is on 3. hahhaaa. i think this list is far more biased lol. who at tgs choosed smackdown or gow ??? this is a totally joke list.
This isn't a vote by industry professionals. This is based off of the ign gs ranks. I'm pretty sure thats based off of how many times they game has been searched for on their site. Its definitely not a vote by people in the industry from TGS.
"Before arriving at TGS, we would have given the Xbox 360 the nod in terms of the next-generation hardware battle. Sony has made a series of blunders in the last six months, and from what we saw and heard about prior to the show, developers were having a lot of trouble developing for the PS3 hardware compared to the ease of PC-like Xbox 360 programming. Plus, side by side, 360 and PS3 games looked almost indistinguishable in terms of graphics.
But at TGS and the following special hands-on media event at Sony Studios in Tokyo, we were swayed in the Sony's direction. Some of the PS3 launch-games on display were simply breathtaking -- definitely the most advanced graphics ever displayed on a console system."
"And, to our complete surprise, Ridge Racer 7 was playing in full 1080p definition at an astonishing 60 frames per second"
Nice job buddy,but its the sony fanboys theres no getting through to theses mindless drones,this games list was voted by the people who atended the shown,what cant speak cant lie its in black and white for all to see,read the list and take of the fanboy specs
graphically better. (i.e its hype based)and hype for games is created as time passes as we see more of the game...
so its stupid to always throw a link of 'hot' games from ign.
Secondly i thnk GOW didnt make it to the list, firstly it was nowhere on show floor, secondly graphically it looks good but it had framerate issues last time. i heard the game is more stable now.
I think the only game that should be in the list should have been lost ody.. instead of mgs4 (mot because of graphics but because it was not playable).
I'll be buying a PS3 obviously but.... Lost Planet will maybe make me buy an Xbox 360...it looks amazing...really..I mean it!
its been almost a year since 360 launch i think they should have more better games, but 0nly 5 6 titles are outstanding in the other side i think PSWii is in the good spot to launch .
One PS3 editor does not make the PS3 games the best. Seriously, it's one biased person's opinion. According to many different reports, Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon had the longest lines, were playable, yet they didn't even make this guy's list. Sounds a little fishy to me.
Everyone knew the PS3 was going to have good graphics. It's a $600 system, it better have good graphics. I've looked at many videos from both systems. I only consider videos that show actual gameplay for comparison and the PS3 has some good looking games. I watched White Knight, Resistance, F1, and Motorstorm in action last night and they all looked nice. However, I also watched 360 games in action.
While White Knight looks very good, it doesn't look better than Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Blue Dragon, or Bioshock. While Resistance looks good, it doesn't look better than Lost Planet or Gears of War. F1 looks nice, but not better than the little bit I've seen of Forza 2 or even PGR3. Motorstorm looks great and there really isn't a game of the same genre on the 360 to compare it to, but overall there are 360 games that look at least as good.
Point is, go to a site like gametrailers.com and compare yourself. One PS3 fanboy or 360 fanboy doesn't show anything one way or the other. If you compare games from both systems, side by side, you'll see what all of the unbiased people have been saying all along. The systems are very similar in output. Also, before people start comparing PS3 launch games to 360 launch games, PS3 developers have had an extra year to work on games. A year is an eternity in the game world.
Pissing contests about graphics between the two systems is irrelevant. Anyone that can think clearly knows that both systems offer great looking games. This isn't going to be a deciding factor in which system to purchase. The deciding factors are price, bluray, Japanese dev support, Western dev support, online service, and PC connectivity. These are the only real differences.
read it carefully b4 you start bashing
Good job, you found two forum posts that bash the 360. You proved everthing!! How about posting the articles/posts that bash the PS3.
http://www.bplaystation3.co... http://www.playfuls.com/new... http://www.joystiq.com/2006... http://www.topofcool.com/?p... http://www.xbox365.com/news... http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/... http://www.gameshout.com/ne... http://www.computerworld.co...
So do all of these articles prove the PS3 sucks or is worse than the 360. Not at all. There are so many of these articles for both sides floating around that they mean nothing. Play the frickin' games. Look at the videos. It's how good the games play, look, and how many of them there are that make one system better than the other, not what fanboys claim.
I was actually very impressed with the PS3 showing! It put away my thoughts of the system not being on par with the 360! Now I know for sure I will be getting one whenever the price drops to around 3 to 4 hundred dollars! Next week is XO6 and im sure MS is going to give a really good show just like they always do!
First of all, isn't Ridge Racer the game that overheated a PS3? Virtua Tennis is on Xbox 360 too if I'm not mistaken, so that doesn't really make it a better looking PS3 game.
Obviously I'm a 360 fan, and like any 360 owner the little demon in me wants to see the PS3 tank horribly because I can't afford one yet and I want to justify the console I have already bought. That being said, the PS3 did have a really good showing, all the games looked pretty good and Microsoft is still struggling in the region for whatever reason.
Why were Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon left out though, or White Knight Story and DMC 4? Whoever this guy is threw together a horrible list as far as I'm concerned. And in regards to a lot of these games being first generation PS3 let's be fair. A lot of this stuff was shown in some form or another around the same time that MS was beginning to show their launch titles. I know that developers need time to learn the hardware, but they have been developing a lot of these games with the specs given for quite a while. I think MS has held back a lot of games for after the PS3 launches, like they should, the games until this point have tended to be rushed or ports simply to generate some interest in the system (aside from GRAW and Oblivion). I'm only going to really start making judgements once all the systems are launched and everyone is forced into serious competition.
Yeah, but I think RR7 and Virtua Tennis 3 were both in 1080p at 60fps for the ps3, resulting in their high showing in this list which was based purely on graphics and not gameplay.
I have no doubt both the PS3 and Xbox360 will trade strong blows in regards to graphics. They both have great hardware under the hood, don't believe everything you hear in the media. They will bash any console maker just to get there personal perks from the other (hardware, games you name it). I say this because back in the days when the 9700pro was out I had concerns between ATI and Nvidia. So I sent an email to a website where I'm a member at (to the editor). I was soon replied and told the Nvidia at that time had the better Image quality and that performance would be equal once a new set of drivers was to be released. I took there advice and purchased the Nvidia graphics card which sucked at that time. Since then I'm no longer a drone to what is published by the media so I tend to do my own comparisons. From a graphics point of view you won't go wrong with either console. It all boils down to which one has the games you want.
Stop posting this link! It's not a judgement of the top games at TGS! It's a list of games at TGS sorted by their gs ranks on ign. It has no relation to the Tokyo Game Show. Heres a link to see the top 100 by their ign gs rank:
This only has to do with the users at the ign website. I don't know how you came under the notion that this was somehow a ranking of the top TGS games, but its something completely different.
PS3 got 6 out of the 8 best looking games on that list..........hhmmmmm
