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?


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

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. :')

MaxXAttaxX1870d ago (Edited 1870d ago )

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

yewles11870d ago (Edited 1870d ago )

ROFLMFAO!!! They updated with proper pics now. XD

JetP06191870d ago

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.
