Some truly amazing artists to get a game to look this good on such old hardware.

black9111716d ago

Beyond Two Souls is on the Same level graphically. Maybe even better.

ritsuka6661716d ago (Edited 1716d ago )

Are you talk about in game or CGI? new Metal Gears uses in game engine no BS of CGI like this game.

grassyknoll1716d ago

Doing quicktime events is a bit easier than having a sandbox environment to interact with.

JasonXS121716d ago

I agree with grassyknoll on the sandbox and quicktime event based games. I saw gameplay on Beyond Two Souls and the map is really small but the game does look absolutely amazing.

When I first saw the face of the doctor at the beginning I shat my pants at how detailed his face was, as well as the face of the patient being shot under the bed. That's some real realtime graphic fidelity right there.

Aghashie1716d ago

@ ritsuka

Beyond does not uses cg, only in game graphics. Same as Heavy Rain. Now that you know that fact, go to youtube and watch the trailer. Remove your computer keyboard from the desk... you may drool all over it.

Grap1716d ago (Edited 1716d ago )

Phantom Pain wasn't mind blowing, GZ in other hand is something else.

nukeitall1715d ago

@grassyknoll :


Quicktime events means you don't have to simulate physics for a lot of objects or even worry about hit detection. It's basically canned animation all the way, so a lot of the overhead is gone.

NastyDaddeh1715d ago

yea but look at that necklace on her...eeewwwwww

Beastforlifenoob1715d ago

why is everyone acting like this is the begginging of something "new" creating photo-realistic 3D models were introduced years ago, these people use 3D scanner type techniques. EVEN indie games will reach this graphical fidelity within 5 years

Norrison1715d ago (Edited 1715d ago )

When you're in a small room with almost no interactive objects you can achieve really good graphics, btw those graphics don't impress at all, look at the lack of detail on the scars/wounds, look at the lack of geometry and low res textures on the collar. The character model is flawless but the textures aren't impressive at all. But the trailer of beyond still looks impresive especially the facial animations and the fire.

Now look at phantom pain/mgs5 screens all the character models are high quality, yes there are low res textures but there's more going on screen.

ZombieKiller1715d ago

Graphically, this game is amazing, BETTER than Two Souls. Plus Metal Gears graphics arent everything, the gameplay and story is what grips me. They could have dated graphics like COD and I wouldnt care. This is just the beginning too, imagine what it will look like when it comes out!

Except that Beyond Two Souls is just one big Quicktime Event...

Imagine how proud they must feel to be so good at their craft? Man, I can only dream of being such a master of something..

maximaz1715d ago

You can be the master of playing that game.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1715d ago (Edited 1715d ago )

You can't build a current console gen spec pc today. With what? a gtx 560? 550? with the dx11 only cards sold today? dx9 cards are no longer sold starting 2009.

Was it running in higher than 720p? & 30fps for presentation? I bet.

Console gamer are ready to eat this info up.

KwietStorm1715d ago

Keep trying. You want that gold star you gotta push just a little more.

akaakaaka1715d ago (Edited 1715d ago )

Ps, i cant wait for the ps4 im tired of my ps3 old tech through we are getting few amazing games starting 2013 I want a ps4 after those games in 2013.
Look how beyond looks or gow or lou they all look amazing, devs improve and juice that old technology.
I agree new pcs have amazing technology obviously, all you are getting from your investment is just better textures and better fps, for me and I bet for most is not worth the stress and money to stay updated with new technology hi end pcs plus devs are not going to juice or even going to touch half of the real potential your graphics card has and I think that's a shame and I will feel I'm been rip off and is not even fair. That how I see it and that how its.

Plus PlayStation has few amazing devs, pc also have like what two or 3 good exclusive devs for them? And this pc devs don't have the talent that devs like naughty dogs have or santa monica, they do have the advantage on technology and only few use that advantage. But the artistic talents are most on the PlayStation and a couple or one on the xbox(the new halo looks good) but the rest are multiplataform devs that will never use whatever your hiend pc card can do and this is the reality .

ZombieKiller1714d ago

ShutUpAndTakeMyMoney- All consoles are today are just Sony/Ms branded PC's. Trust me, if Metal Gear went PC exclusive, I'd be a PC gamer tomorrow. Regardless, he will have this at 720 or higher with 30fps locked if not more when the game is released. Im glad this isn't on PC because Kojima does consoles pretty well.
This game or 2 games are prequels to MGS5 which I bet will show up on the next gen consoles. They aren't Vita games like the one article suggests. It's a PS3/360 intro into next generation by Hideo Kojima pretty much. I bet he will cut down the cutscenes and GZ/PP will be a combined story the size of MGS4 if not bigger.

The_Infected1715d ago

Yea expect all developers do is try to squeeze power out of old hardware while they could take that and apply it to focusing solely on the game itself. We need new hardware ASAP so developers quit having to spend lots of their time trying to squeeze every last drop out of 7 year old hardware. This cycle went on far to long. I hope next gen consoles are upgradable to help with the cycle. At least I'm pretty sure Valves console will be.

Welshy1715d ago

You think a step up to another level of detail will benefit creativity?

Quite the opposite. Alot of the first wave of next gen games will practically be "tech demos" as they also have to move their own software tech up to match the masses having next gen hardware.

So if anything, you'll find less creativity. Fine tuning existing engines with familiar tools is substantially easier than trying to establish a whole new engine and making it run properly.

The_Infected1715d ago

Don't you think if Developers quit worrying oh how do I get more out of this system all throughout making a game then they could use all that time and invest it more into creativity, story, and gameplay?

SephirothX211715d ago

The trailer is very good for current specs but if you want to see next gen, look at the Unreal Engine 4 videos. If next gen consoles can get a graphics card as good as a GTX 680 (I doubt it), we will see some truly stunning games.

Norrison1715d ago

I can run the UE4 demo at 60 fps 1080p C:

Monstar1716d ago

I would take this with a grain of salt, Hideo and his team is known to state such things at first, until the game progresses further and things eventually downgrade.. especially when design choices are altered and more things are added, etc.

One can't forget the initial MGS3 realtime gameplay and MGS4 original look which was suppose to be running in realtime (wasn't even running on a PS3)...and eventually changed.

Just keep that in mind. Will look great regardless.

CarlosX3601716d ago

Um. I dunno if you noticed, but at the time of MGS4's development, PS3 was NEW.

There is no excuse this time around.

modesign1715d ago

when games have to accomodate for both ps3/360, quality is sacrificed.

cee7731715d ago

ps3 downgraded specs like ram last minute. kojima himself is ashamed of mgs4 even tho its a masterpiece

ZombieKiller1714d ago

CEE .....FAIL. just...plain.....FAIL

cee7731714d ago (Edited 1714d ago )

go check the interview with kojima sony changed ps3 specs so he had to make compromises with mgs4 its a fact this is what I read on a kojima interview about the development of mgs4 sony changed dev units many times with ps3

ABizzel11715d ago

I'll believe it when I see it.

"All footage is shown running in real-time on hardware equivalent to current generation consoles (PS3 & XBOX360)"

It's been possible for several other games that were far from release to actually run their demos on PS360, but this game is running on "EQUIVALENT HARDWARE". Equivalent being the key word, meaning equal or "NEAR-EQUAL". By all means this could easily be a PS4 / Nextbox launch game, and with graphics like that this early, in a Sandbox world, and Sony wanting 1080p @ 60fps, then I'm satisfied with what Next gen will be bringing.

If this is truly PS360 footage of the game then Kojima just [email protected] on every developer this generation graphically. The lightning and details within the hospital are unmatched in this scene.

And here you can even see the wrinkles in his foot

And I can't finish without posting the @$$ shot. I see you peaking out the back of the gown :D

Pintheshadows1716d ago

So I go away for a while to play Hitman and Far Cry and Dark Souls 2 and MGS5 (this is MGS5 right?) get revealed. Maybe I should stay away from N4G more often.

Summons751716d ago

No body knows yet, more likely than not its MSG GZ since its too early after that announcement to be announcing mgs5.....but even if its a new ip than it looks awesome. Either way we have an excellent game on our hands.

Syntax-Error1715d ago (Edited 1715d ago )

If it were it would have FOX STUDIOS attached. This is clearly another MG game in the works called Phantom Pain. MG:GZ is Big Boss and last time I checked, he didnt have a prosthetic arm.
