The screenshots were released over at the official PlayStation website.
7th image added.
60 players online. 8 player coop
super realistic graphics
These are most certainly beautiful. Wow, look at the polygon count on that Chimera with the armor on. Very impressive stuff going on there. Now all that is left is an official video and we are all set.
EDIT: Added my personaly favorite.
this looks hella good & it ain't even polished up yet...
EDIT:Does anybody know if alot of people play the map packs they released for R:FOM
just look at the lighting and that damn grass
It looks absolutely amazing. Imagine if the grass and other things moved when touched like in crysis. That would just be just about the coolest thing yet. Am more hyped for this game than I was before. Wow.
No bots to be found in this thread. Just disagrees. :]
All that's needed now is an official announcement of Crysis coming to PS3 and my bank account will reach -$59.99 :(
Next fight confirmed: Resistance 2 vs Gears of Wars 2; Gays of War has zero chance now that Insomniac has their grip on the PS3 (Though I will still play GaysOW on PC when it is released).
simply beautiful eye candy! insomniac is dropping something nuclear soon
Decapitor. There is no question that they have completely outdone themselves this time. And the game is at least 6-9 months away :):).
The most amazing thing about these screenshots is that they're the same ones from the magazine... and in the article Insomniac emphasized the fact that they have been focusing fully on gameplay and have not started to "pretty up the game yet"! Can you imagine how good this game is going to look once they've began to focus attention on polishing up the graphics!!!
look at the difference between the visuals in resistance 1 and 2. I mean that jst shows how much power is left untapped in ps3. The game hasnt even been polished yet and it already looks good. Then lets not forget the fact that its going to be running on an updated version of insomniacs engine which last ran and 60fps and insomniac themselves said all their games after ratchet would run at 60fps. Not confirmation that it will be locked at 60fps but insomniac did say all their games running on their engine would run at 60fps
2nd gen PS3 titles Oh My!! 360 can only dream!
Can anyone confirm that this is In-game shots?
I'm not saying it's not it's just unbelievebly beautiful.
I wanna kill some chimera now!
Oh well,at least they've got UNDERTOW...aha ha HA!
Jump OUT and Play B3YOND,January 28th=DOOMSDAY for Xbots.
maybe you gonna hate me now, .. what's happening on january 28th??
i cant wait till they show this off at GDC with their SPU presentation as well. amazing Insomniac has officially lost it they are essencially the best devs ever. ^^ awesome stuff
I think Resistance 2 might even become the biggest game of 2008.
But whatever it is the fight will be among mgs4,ff13,kz2,r2 and
4 games all of them being ps3 exclusive will fight for GOTY crown in 2008
amazing feat indeed
actually it seems to be pre-alpha! they have finished the single player level designs but have not molded each level together into a complete game yet... the lead dev said that they were focusing only on gameplay at this point & how the levels tie in to the story... they haven't even began to focus on polishing graphics or playtesting the game as a whole yet... still have nearly a year in development!
your list is very true, but you forgot one game: gta iv.
GTA4 is going to compete against MAFIA 2, and when comparing them GTA 4 looks like cartoons, i am not bashing gta, i played every iteration of it but i don't think it has what it takes to be GOTY unless they do smth revolutionary with the game,,, now i am hyped RESISTANCE 2 AND MAFIA 2, 2 GREAT GAMES FTW
Incredibly awesome find. The game looks sick and we all know how innovative and crazy Insomniac gets with it's sequels (Anyone remember how mindblowing R&C: Up Your Arsenal was?).
I do. I stayed up all night play R&C: UYA. That game was one of the best i ever played
Ture. The game was a blast. I haven't gotten a PS3 so couldn't play R&CF: TOD but if Up Your Arsenal is any indicating, R2 could indeed go way beyond the original.
R2 pwns real life CONFIRMED
R2 looks as realistic as real life if not better. It is looking like a sci-fi alien movie . dont you think
"R2 pwns real life CONFIRMED"
Gotta disagree here. The game looks really good but nowhere near GT5 in terms of realism. Also, Killzone 2 is still better looking IMO but the enviroments of R2 look indeed much bigger and more crowded.
I do believe it looks superb but the only game to ever reach an unmatched level of realism IMO is Gran Turismo 5. Killzone 2 is also mindblowing and for now, those two are still my picks for the best graphics ever.
In R2, you can still see that it's a game even though beyond stunning but in case of Gran Turismo 5, I saw a lot of people that couldn't distinguish GT5's gameplay from real life driving.
Sorry for the double post.
I disagree MK. There is so much missing compared to R2, which lets it reach this high visual level. The levels are empty compared to R2. Just take the time and count the different kind of grass textures in the close up, the polycount in the stalkers and chimera. The level of AA thru out the whole scene, lightning, shadowing, etc. It is simply amazing. Amazing that I have a hard time believing these are in game. However, there are some "shortcomings" in those shots (e.g. pretty visual short range texture resolution issues) which you wouldn't have if you would render that scene statically. But those make me believe, this is really rendered by the game engine.
Ju, R2 is indeed much more crowded and enviroments seem bigger but still, it doesn't wow me as much as Killzone 2 and GT5. Just my personal opinion.
At least they smile for the pictures
it is very gears like , dont you think, but then again its always good to see games getting better by a margin, this is very delightful especially after playin ratchet toold of destruciton
OMFG!!!!! WTF WTF! Insomniac delivers yet again. However, if Resistance 2 already look this good at alpha, then imagine what Killzone 2 looks like now. I mean, last time we saw it it was only at pre-alpha stages. I expect Killzone 2 to look A LOT more realistic than this but Resistance 2 will probably end up being better due to INSANE multiplayer features. We'll see though.
Resistance>>>>> ;real life
What the hell?
because i pissed myself
due to these screenshots being amazing.
Killzone2.. better beef up their game.
I thought Blademask was an xbot though. Maybe I'm thinking about Bloodmask.
You're thinking Bladestar. Or yeah, maybe Bloodmask.
I like purple.
its like math.
Bloodmask x bladestar = blademask
i.e. two negatives = 1 positive
Bye Halo, Bye Gears of War. Bye Xbox 360
as nmuch as i love my ps3 and dont have a 360 your comment doesnt make any sence. why should halo and gears say goodbye 0o.
is saying bye to those games because he won't be playing them anymore.
That is the best looking game I have ever seen!!! I still enjoy the first one, it is the only reason i got into FPS, before I only liked RPG's and racers.
As the saying goes, "Business has just picked up".
This is what I call first gen to 2nd gen transition! The scans don't do these screens justice. Exponential improvement!!!
Only on PS3 :)
Wouldn't this be a 2nd to 3rd gen transition?
this is ps3s 2nd year on the market so its considered 2nd gen
This looks pretty darn cool and you all know I'm up for PS3 exclusives.
Right on, Looking Great.
first day buy for me
everyone say it with me, Insomniac 4ever!
This game looks SICK!!!!
Wait ... Did you hear that?
I hear a select few members on N4G crying after looking at these screens. Ahhhh poor things. You still have Halo 3.
I hope we get to see more at the Game Developer's Conference in the Moscone.
uh.... someone please tell me what to do with this hard-on that I have after looking at the pics..... LOL
Go find a woman now!!!!
Bubbles for making me laugh....
try the memorycard slots or spooning your pad
the screens are in 1920x1080?
While I prefer 720 myself, since more can be crammed into 720 than 1080 on a console, I would find it impressive if they pull 1080 off with more on screen details than RfoM.
1. Anti Aliasing
2. Texture Quality (sharpness)
I never thought a single game could put an entire console to rest. But WOW... This *looks* a bit better than Uncharted.
Not good as Uncharted. On consoles there is no game like it (graphicly or gameplay-wise).
I know we're all high on Resistance kool-aid, but just stop and smell the daisies for a minute.
99.9% of all screens released by, um....ANYONE these days are touched up. These are very obviously no exception.
don't try to spread 360 fud on the PS3, Imsomniac doesn't do fake screenshots. The only ones notorious for that were Epic with their queers of war screenshots that were doctore to makeup for the 360's limited graphical output and color palette.
Dont want to try and sound fanboyish, but when the first R&C screens came out a poster at myresistance.net flat out said they were not in game assests being used, and an insomniac employee, cant remember who maybe "BEAST!" I think thats his user name posted.
"the screenshots are 100% ingame" I just dont think insomniac feels the need to doctor screens, and Racthet certainly looks up to par with its screenshots.
I could research this...buts thats a bit anal rententive IMO
There's a big difference between what can be called a FAKE shot, and a touched up in-game shot.
Some of you take this fanboy stuff way too much to heart. 360 fud? Pfff, yeah...right. I'm spreading 360 fud when I don't own one of the blasted things. Did I mention anything 360 related? Sounds like someone is a bit insecure to me.
Anyway, a fake shot would be like something that was FMV and touted as gameplay. Hell, a fake shot would be a pair of idiots in costumes and called gameplay. Fake = nothing to do with the product.
Touched up screens are not a bad thing. The edits are very minimal anyway. These shots I'm sure represent the very integrity of the game, they're just a little bit smoother and are a bit easier on the eyes.
This doesn't make Insomniac dishonest, nor did I imply that...but of course, that's what people will tell me I said.
Anyway, I'm not the type that gets bent out of shape about little stuff like this. Accept it and enjoy the game, doesn't take away from the experience, everyone does it and it's never so drastic as to misrepresent the game. People get too wrapped up in the particulars.
I like how they're in just the right size and aspect ratio for PS3 wallpapers. .. I can't wait for this game, Insomniac kicks ass. Now show us The Cloven!!
