PlayStation 3: A Graphical Evolution 2007 - 2013

The PlayStation 3 is (apparently) about to meet its match in the form of a successor, a console so powerful it will probably bend space time and end the universe as we know it.

No, not really, but it does seem strange that a new console is set to be revealed (supposedly), despite current hardware being so graphically capable (at least when stacked up to other console games -- let's not start the whole "PC vs console" debate).

Although, it's probably time to start moving onto new hardware when developers maximise a console's power during development. Sure, developers are now so comfortable with the hardware that they can spend more time tinkering with gameplay mechanics, but, ERMAHGERD, the graphix!

All this talk about the PlayStation 4, it's time-bending capabilities, and upcoming PS3 exclusives got us thinking: just how far have PS3 games evolved graphically since the console launched in late-2006? (PS3)

Update For those of you who can't read, the article states you need to DOWNLOAD the high definition comparison.

Just my 4¢
1. Metal Gear Solid 4 uses 100% of the PS3z power..!!

2. Resistance: Fall of Man looks worse than Super Mario Galaxy.

3. The Last of Us is the game with the best graphics.

4. PS3 is outdated

5. So is Xbox 360

6. Playstation 4 will be shown on 20th feb and PS3 will be blown out of the water.

7. Wii U Zelda will put the final nail in its coffin.

8. PS3 is remembered as a good console

9. Uncharted 2 will be remembered as its best game

10. PS2>PS3>PS1

I'm pretty sure they put up the wrong picture for UC2. The picture's from the first Uncharted. I don't remember seeing Drake in that costume in UC2.
But this is really good. :D the games just got better & better. :')

I recognized the pics from Resistance, Uncharted, MSG4, KZ2 and UC2 from early press screenshots.

I'm thinking the author hasn't played most of these to notice.

That Uncharted 2 pic is actually Uncharted 1, the GoW3 pic is from the E3 2009 demo before MLAA implementation and resource freeing up and the GT5 pic is actually GT5P.

I was just about to say the same thing. the person who made this article is an idiot. how hard is it to get proper images right for each game?

There's no such thing as gaming journalists, just goof balls with a pc lol

Get your facts straight cause many uneducated gamers rely on proper information from you unfortunately

voted wtf and disliked the website.

first impressions are very important to me. it just shows lack of knowledge and respect for the developers and the industry as a whole

The uncharted 2 pic is actually uncharted 2 from when Drake was in Nepal.

Wow as you go down the list of pictures to can see how everything just got cleaner and sharper. Props to the developers for putting in the work and figuring the PS3 out. It's paid off for us gamers.

Beyond Two Souls Best Graphics Ever!!!!!
NateCole  +   722d ago
Resistance FOM oh what great memories.
SlyFamous02  +   722d ago
MGS4 can still hold its won graphically but as far as gameplay goes very few games even come close. Still, I saw an alarming lack of Journey in there, one of the best looking games on any platform.

Came here for the pics, and was more amazed at manchild's comment. Dude seek help. Or hack into your own account and delete it.

poor image quality !

My tablet won't load the file. Would have been much easier if you didn't upload the original pictures with a f***ing phone camera out the end of someones a$$. Seriously, my left ass-cheek can take higher res pictures than that.

EDIT: wow. Even with the 'high res' shots, it is still blurry as all crap. And, if I can remember correctly (ooh, I can), Resistance FOM was released in 2006, at least initially.

It's all about the graphic engine. The PS3 has the same power that it has in the launch day.
Jamaicangmr  +   721d ago
Thats a messed up GT5 pic they could've atleast use premium cars in the pic.

Why is it that these games look worse in image form? I don't remember them looking so bad. And even some of these I've played recently and they all looked fantastic.
