Did they intentionally blur the PS2 images? Because I remember the game looking quite beautiful, not like I had just removed my glasses.

Yeah, this doesn't seem right

They're accurate. It just looks blurry because they enlarged cropped screens for the comparisons. The only real (full screen) comparison images are the very last two.

Enlarging them certainly seemed to create the illusion that they were real. Thereby making the comparisons inaccurate and pointless. Kotaku's post on the comparisons seems way more accurate:

One is probably 720p and the other one is 480i native so it makes sense when you zoom on both. Cell Shading rendered in HD gives a great result!

I'm hoping for Dragon Quest VIII in HD remaster soon, we haven't seen much from the japanese devs regarding HD remasters, hope they announce something during TGS!

No remasters from the japanese devs? Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Devil May Cry, FFX, Ico & SotC and ZotE says hello.

@ Aggesan: sorry man i was writing and talking at the same time :)
I meant Japanese RPG developers and editors haven't released anything, that's why i wrote about DQ8.


I think so. I used component video cables on a 27" screen. It didn't look as good as the HD remake but it definately didn't look as bad as the PS2 version in the video. I'd imagine they used the composite cables that came with the PS2. That would be a reasonable reason for that kind of picture.

Would this game look good in 3d?

Better not to enlarge these images, because it makes the comparison hard to believe. I am playnig the game now on my PS2 and old 50Hz Sony TV and it still looks great. I appreciate the PS3 HD remake of this game and added MOVE support, but the original will stay the original! And I love Okami as it is on PS2.

I'm trying to contain my excitement in only three words: I can't wait.

The game was awesome.. It was blurry in the original too.. The draw distance was blurred in as u get close.. I hope u dont have to use the move control cuz i dont have it & i want this game again
