For those who wondered about those close-ups of the supposed heroin of Heavy Rain Quantic Dream released a few weeks ago, here is the same face in video. Totally useless, but impressive.
drool now i know its in-game
well...if it isn't in game...its pretty pointless as a tech demo...there are far superior mo-cap techniques for pre-rendered animation... I agree though it does look awesome...its just that its actually pretty lame compared to newer pre-rendered animation... ha 4 disagrees?...Beowulf (the movie not the game) doesn't have better motion capturing technology in place if we are talking about pre-rendered content? ... I was only pointing out that this definitely better be in game real-time rendering if it is supposed to raise eyebrows...no pun intended...
in game so there just showing us how good it will look ingame..
It written at the beginning of the Video. This graphics are gorgeous
ya you are rite it says at the start of the video that its real time and it dose look good...
console war finishes in 2008 WItness the power of PS3
It looks very stunning, with the original demo which showed lots of emotion I can see this game technology setting the bar for future cinematic experiences.
quantic dream is amazing. for anyone who played INDIGO PROPHECY knows what i`m talking about. the Graphics were amazing, in that game for being on ps2. they are a very very innovative company, that make NICHE games like TEAM ICO. that FACT that PS3/SONY has these three companys making EXCLUSIVE games is unreal....... 1. TEAM ICO 2. QUANTIC DREAM 3. SUCKER PUNCH all of these guys fly under the radar in the mainstream, but are very respected around the industry. and ALL make amazing games.
I'm not saying that there bad, but they seem mostly to make mainstream games. At least a lot more mainstream then Team Ico and Quantic Dream...
sucker punch aren't the cream of sony's crop, but they are making that promising game called infamous and i love their sly cooper series i think sonys top 3 studios are: INSOMNIAC TEAM ICO NAUGHTY DOG quantic dream comes in at fourth, because apart from stunning facial animation and detail- we dont know if the game is any good (although it probably will be given how good fahrenheit was)
@hey hey hey i didn`t say CREAM OF THE CROP. i said NOT mainstream. Insomniac and ND are mainstream. @clap your hands they are MORE mainstream BUT, Sly cooper is NOT mainstream and is INNOVATIVE as F**K when it comes to action/platformers. SLY doesn`t sell extremly well, but is loved by those who play it. like SOTC. GOD, it`s ADAM SESSLERS favorite games series, he always TRYED to make people buy it, on the OLD XPLAYS and i`ll always like him for that! more people NEEDED to play them.
anyone got a towel for my drool......???
http://omikrongame.blogspot... "Although we didn't plan for it to be shown, this trailer(E3 2005) is indicative of the direction we will take regarding acting quality. The final quality of the game will be significantly higher, though. Also, this trailer is just a real-time non-interactive movie, where the game will be fully interactive, without cut scenes." notice the part about being interactive without cutscenes. http://www.gamesindustry.bi... GDC should prove mighty informative about some of sony's upcoming games.if they have passed the uncanny valley.i expect something simular in look to heavenly sword cut scene characters in realtime with backdrops taking a backseat to the characters. mag lev...................
How the hell did this get approved with that awful typo? It's "heroinE", not "heroin". Big difference. Stupid and lazy.
well perhaps because people are more interested in the screen rather than the grammer. but your right, stories get approved which contain a torrent of mistakes. i still belive a good 50% of this site dont even read the articles.
Maybe that's part of the story - you know she's made of heroin or something and it's all part of some big drug deal.
50% ????? that`s being generous! LOL.
wow that looks unreal...my excitement for this game just went up another couple notches...me personally i love games that have a cinematic feel to them with great story, characters, voice acting, the whole 9...and with such amazing facial animations like these and those of heavenly sword and uncharted drakes fortune...it makes the game an experience and thats what i love playing games for...the experience...and fortunately for me the only place i can experience them is on ps3
Sorry I just had to title my comment with a fanboy comment. Anyway a certain tech expert from company A is going to be eating some crow sandwich. Uncanny Valley has just been Pwnd in the ass.
isnt she lovely...the facial expression looks so realistic...PS3 owners is getting to many games which is goood...Heavy Rain going to be very kool.
If this is anything near Farenheit, this game will be gawd damn kewl.
this game can only run on ps3 power.no other console can handle this kind of detail.and this is just the begining.PLAY B3YOND!
Sony didn't lie in their tech specs...
wow, if that's how detailed and realistic the character is actually going to look like if you zoom in on her in-game.. wow. i will buy this game just for that!
Wow, that's pretty impressive.
Looks pretty amazing.
i'll just add another WOW!
Did anyone else notice the huge mistake on the site that posted the video? They list the platforms for Heavy Rain and it says 360 and PS3. I don't think so.
360 versions been canceled long time ago.
Does anyone know when this maybe headed our way?
so... for now, it doesn`t impress me much.. BUT THIS has GREAT potential, indeed.
Ha! And people scoffed at the Alfred Molina tech demo in 2005...This looks BETTER. Now, I realize it probably wont look nearly this amazing in-game, but if its this good in close-up I'll bet it can hit the overall quality of the faces in the infamous 2005 killzone 2 trailer.... reason being there probably wont be tons if ridiculous action going on as well. I bet Mag-Lev hit it right on the head. The hits will be taken by using lower res backgrounds.
I can't even tell what that girl really looks like. Don't cut this game short. It could be way better than Indigo Prophecy. It might follow up on the elements of interacting with characters kinda gameplay. But the production levels are way higher, plotline and characters can all be better. They hint that this game is a lot more dramatic. And this one doesn't have supernatural elements.
