cgi awesome
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   958d ago
I was confused by what was in game.
Some parts looked like it was in game with little item menus on the side and such.
Still..looked awesome.

This was the highlight for me.
Flipgeneral  +   958d ago
Yeah, this was probably the best shocker for me..

Mature looking characters with a BEAUTIFUL engine. Take my money!

Sounds like a Porno Movie o_O

That is why it says " working title " next to it....That title won't sell well as it does sound like an odd porno.

Even though I'm not a huge fan of Capcom after some of the crap they pulled this gen, this video really impressed me. I liked the feel of it. Reminded me greatly of things like Demon's Souls. Deep Down COULD be a great dungeon crawler where you can give your gear to friends if you struggle with a boss or something. Looks interesting.

And you can also buy gear in DLC :D

What? It's capcom.

RyuX19  +   958d ago
Don't imagine DMC I have a feeling that series is done after this gen.

Capcom has announced the "PR" Engine.

I dunno, it stood out to me for some reason. Game looks great though.
NegativeCreepWA  +   958d ago
I'm looking forward to seeing more of this.
HeavenlySnipes  +   958d ago
This can't possibly be what the game will look like O_o

this game was amazing looking and pay attention you can see the HUD so that was real time gameplay
Reibooi  +   958d ago
I don't think that was real gameplay. The hud looked fake and overlayed rather then a real one(and the way the camera moved was way to cinematic for gameplay).

I think they just used the engine to render a cool video and then put the HUD on it. It looked good but I can imagine the game looking and controlling the way it showed. It would be impractical to have such cinematic camera angles unless the game is nothing but a massive quick time event.
trenso1  +   958d ago
good points but ill believe thats in game until we see more from it since thats all we have to go by at this point
wenaldy  +   958d ago
I don't know man, HUD can be superimposed on cinematic video.. Nontheless, i cant wait to see PS4 potential.
Eldyraen  +   958d ago
As Reibooi said, it seems much more likely its some serious HQ in-engine footage more than anything. 'Some' of it looks like it could be in game assets but the action itself just looks way too controlled to be real gameplay (the fire especially... when 'striking' the shield it is too perfect for any game even if the PS4 could somehow run everything else as real time gameplay).

I definitely want to know where they're taking this though as whatever the footage was the video was incredible and looked like my type of game setting.

Other than that I was actually thinking about how cool a modern take on Dragon's Lair would be as the video's inconsistencies (or at least cinematic flair... the mix of slow motion, 'real' time, and fast paced action) sort of gave me the idea. I'm not saying I expect it or would even prefer it but after Reibooi's comment not afraid to admit it at least ;)

Panta Rhei was the game engine capcom have made for next gen, the games working title was Deep Down, nice to see this writer was paying attention..... Not
M-M  +   958d ago
I was going crazy when I saw this, because I remember watching this on Youtube a few months back. Now I figure out that it was actually a PS4 running it in real time.
t3gamenews  +   958d ago
lets see it in wii u games now.

I still think that it looked like CGI. I want to see what it will eventually look like.
NiteX  +   958d ago
Now THAT has got to be CGI! I really didn't get how people could be so easily impressed with the lackluster looking new Killzone, but this game holy crap, it's so far beyond Skyrim it's not even funny. I will be truly impressed if this isn't CGI.

Panty Raid.

I laughed when Blanka was the player asking for help from none other than Yoshioro Ono XD
Tyre  +   958d ago
@Nitex What's the purpose of showing a new engine running on nextgen hardware if u were just showing pre-renderings? THIS IS FROM REAL-TIME RENDERED FOOTAGE...meaning this is what the game will look like on PS4!
stuntman_mike  +   958d ago
this looked awesome, also the game reminded me of dragons dogma. could be an evolution of that game.
ThatXboxGuy  +   958d ago
I was getting the dogma vibe too.Infact, if i didn't enjoy DD so much i would have absolutely zero faith in Capcom.Heres hoping it's PS4's Dragons dogma, eh.
kainslayer  +   958d ago
panta rhei means everflowing
Reborn  +   958d ago
At one point, I thought it was a new Dragons Dogma. Looked like it drew inspiration from it. Lets see what Capcom do, and hopefully, they pull their act together regarding DLC too.

Capcom were the hell is ur WiiU nextgen games ?????
