PlayStation’s biggest makeovers – gaming characters who changed their look

From classic characters with snappy new looks to last minute in-development tweaks, we present the biggest character changes in PS3 history. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 6, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360)

Ellie actually looks like a troubled hungry child now.
MaxXAttaxX  +   933d ago
Which is a good thing.

And before, she didn't look her age.
Bimkoblerutso  +   933d ago
Kinda wish they'd fix that fivehead though.
PurpHerbison  +   933d ago
I see nothing wrong with a fivehead seeing as many people have them.
Bimkoblerutso  +   933d ago
...I dunno. I think they could subtract two from that thing and it would still look fine.
IAMERROR  +   933d ago
The snake comparison was just silly, why compare an NES model to a current one? lol Of course theyre going to look dramatically different but it has to do more with technology advances. hahaha
MaxXAttaxX  +   932d ago
That wasn't the NES model -__-
IAMERROR  +   932d ago
k, msx. point still stands lol
lociefer  +   933d ago
i must admit the old ellie model looks better
th3n00bg4m3r  +   933d ago
But, the old Ellie does not fit with the game.
lociefer  +   933d ago
i dunno, maybe she looks too childish or i have a thing for ellen page lol, regardless im getting the game day 1
Nightfallen  +   934d ago
Must admit, I prefer the new Elizabeth look.
Enemy  +   934d ago
Elizabeth now looks more natural for the game's setting and atmosphere. Not too sure how a slutty goth version of her even made the cut at some point.

@ VsAssassin: LOL

I just found it odd that they were trying to cater her personality as an innocent-yet-older girl who hadn't grown up so she still had a child-like personality. Yet she was dressed like a giant cock-tease in all blatant means.

Not that I was complaining about the older look.....I quite enjoyed the view of anything that simulates a push-up bra. Only issue was indeed that, she was more sexualized than what Ken Levine wanted, even though her external style just contradicted the internal concept of her character.

Boobs were nice though, I'll miss them....
Bimkoblerutso  +   933d ago
Yeah, all slutiness aside, the hair, eyes and clothing just looks a lot more accurate to the game's aesthetic, I think.
SilentNegotiator  +   933d ago
HMPH. I hate it >:[
Megaton  +   933d ago
It's not a new look. Ken said it's just how she looks in the beginning when you first meet her. Everything we've seen before is how she looks for the rest.

Dante now looks like Hilary Swank from the movie Boys Don't Cry.

Great. Right when I was finally being convinced that maybe this new Dante isn't so bad, you show up and post that image. I hate him again now. Congrats.
Reibooi  +   934d ago
That made my day. I got one hell of a laugh out of that.
Kevin ButIer  +   934d ago
nailed it...
banjadude  +   933d ago
I cannot unsee this! damn you, lol.
VsAssassin  +   933d ago
Honestly, I always thought of the new Dante (or is it Donte now?) as Hilary Swank when he was first revealed almost 2 years ago. I never thought that this would cause you guys mental damage after I voiced it out though! Hahaha!!! Sorreeee... >_<

Isnt it possible that Elizabeth changes clothes later on in the game? Ah well, she still looks great.
Auron  +   934d ago
Ive seen in the trailer she switches clothes and hair. It shoulda been chris redfield in stead of leon. Hes changed alot more than leon.

Megaton  +   933d ago
Not just possible, that's exactly what it is according the Ken. People questioned the change over Twitter, where he said she just looks like that in the beginning when you first meet.
SolidGear3  +   934d ago
I lol'd at the difference in Solid Snake. Metal Gear (1987) and Metal Gear Solid 4 (2008). Did they expect him to stay 8 bit!? LOL
BoNeSaW23  +   934d ago
The older and balder Max Payne looks like Walter White from Breaking Bad.
J86blum  +   934d ago
The Malcom in the Middle dad sure did loose it
InTheLab  +   934d ago
Kinda miss poop face Max Payne...and Elizabeth's...eyes.
Blacklash93  +   934d ago
I think Elizabeth still has her old look. She just changes out of the schoolgirl outfit and into the blue dress at some point. We still see her in it in the new footage - in places that are obviously later in game.

Some are simply the same look in more detail (Leon for example, and Lara Croft.) While some are big makeovers such as Dante, Max is the same just with facial hair and a shaved head. Alterations or improved look due to graphics isnt the same as a complete makeover. they should of included Spyro and Crash.
Y_5150  +   933d ago
I knew they would show Cole, I just knew it!
phinch  +   933d ago
Suprised Chris redfield wasnt on that list.... i also disagree with the tomb raider one, i think thats just a case of improved graphics
PurpHerbison  +   933d ago
The only one that I think really needed to be on the list was Dante.
