The Best Looking PlayStation 4 Game Revealed

TQ author writes: Next generation gaming consoles are just around the corner and Sony has given us a little preview of what’s expected. During the recent PlayStation 4 reveal meeting in New York City, Sony brandished off a number of next-gen games that exposed the power of the new gaming system and the new technical advancements in its games. One game shown at the PS4 meeting definitely left us with that “WOW” effect and reassured us that next-gen gaming was right in front of our eyes.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Do you agree that Deep Down was the best looking PS4 game revealed? "

Of course I agree!

This Panta Rhei engine looks more like a second gen engine and not a launch one.

I see great details, like when the torch the archer orc was holding made a great refraction in front of the icy stalactite.

And for those doubting it was not ingame:

I can add to that the part when they were talking (that most of you think it is CGI); look closely at the bald templar's ear, there are flickering pixelated shadows behind it, plus at the presentation screen before they showed the trailer, when talking about the engine, they showed the bald man's head model (so it was modeled to be ingame and to show the game engine and not CGI, moreover it doesn't have many polygons).

Finally, the only officially announced platform for this game is the PS4 now, so it may have taken advantage of its hardware (power of the exclusive games):

I am very happy to see japanese developers coming back in force for the next-gen after they totally missed the last-gen (at least in terms of graphics, many of them handed their franchises to western studios).

Now we are spoiled by Fox Engine, Luminous Engine and Panta Rheir Engine and more to come. Next-gen and especially PS4 could never be so much fun.

"Finally, the only officially announced platform for this game is the PS4 now, so it may have taken advantage of its hardware (power of the exclusive games):"

Dude you are dreaming if you think this will be exsclusive to PS4, And this was probably running the same way as Watch Dog, on a PC similar to the PS4. where did you see them say that for fact it was running on PS4?

PLASTICA-MAN2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

At above: Did you read my second comment?

The only game not running on PS4 was Watch Dogs (and it was the least impressive one btw with huge screen tearing, Ubisoft didn't even start developping on PS4 and surely they don't know about the 8 GO GDDR5, even Sony first party devs didn't know about it).

Even Unreal Engine 4 Elemental Demo was running on PS4 and Knack developper moved it using the trackpad.

And why you don't think it will be exclusive to PS4? Capcom released many exclusive games on the PS2. If the PS4 releases so early, the same PS2 could happen again and Sony needs that along with some 3rd party exclusives.

Don't let your hopes be so low. Everyone expected the PS4 to have only 2 go of RAM or games looking less than Battlefield 3 or Witcher 2. Deep Down wipes even Witcher 3 which pretends to be next-gen. If you don't expect such graphical leap for next-gen and especially PS4, then there is no need to evolve for you.

Kingdom Come2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )


This is Capcom we're talking about here, notorious for on-disc DLC. Do you REALLY think they're going to pass up the opportunity for higher profits by making this title exclusive? And, if it is an exclusive, then why was the title discussed outside of the exclusives section of the presentation...?

joab7772037d ago

I was so hoping it was dragons dogma or its spiritual successor. It probably wouldnt be exclusive if it was dragons dogma, but it looks killer. What surprised me most was the activision nod with destiny to ps4 with exclusive content. That and jonathon blow may signify a change. So why wouldnt capcom supports sony's rise back to the top. Its hard to tell now but maybe MS isnt bettingon games this time. We will have to wait and see but I think sonys initial showing was very powerful and not so much because of hardware but because of software and the possiblilities that these choices may lead to.

xursz2037d ago

I saw him using a PS controller... Why is it hard for some people to admit that? And "it was running on pc with similar specs" makes no sense.. If it was running PS4 software and operating system (which it was) then it was not a pc.

How many ways does one need to explain this? At the very least you can say it was run on a PS4 dev kit which is entirely possible.

Kevin ButIer2036d ago (Edited 2036d ago )

Lol this is getting weird... It seems that pc gained a lot of momentum for gamming in the last years, everything is so affordable now. I've seen a lot of trolling from pc users with the ps4 release.

On topic... I loved this trailer... but I still have my doubts on how the final product will look like. I mean... its Capcom.

whoyouwit042036d ago

See folk even Kevin Butler Have his doubts about this game lol.

and also a good point if it looks this good now at a possible pre alpha stage imagine it when its at its final stage with the icing on the cake . heck killzone 3 showed a big difference from pre alpha to beta code finish . http://community.killzone.c...

Yodagamer2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

Seeing as killzone shadow fall launches with the ps4 i don't think we will see a huge improvement in the next year, but honestly it looks pretty darn good as it is.

BigStef712037d ago

It's like a Manta-Ray, but with PANTS!

saulx62037d ago


I was also doing my own research because I myself found hard to believe the game was running in real time.

The game looks miles apart from all the other ps4 games showed. It seems many websites have over looked this gem.

I am glad you provided us with this info. THANK YOU

PLASTICA-MAN2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

You are welcome anytime! ;)

Anyone wants next-gen and PS4 to wow us. We waited so long to play in such quality.
For fun:
Ingame (bad quality screen saps) vs overhyped pre-rendered movie. Welcome to next-gen. Movies makers, watch out. :p

miyamoto2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

a true seasoned gamer can tell that Deep Down was in game engine. You can tell by the animation

What happened to the MT Framework by Capcom?

Timesplitter142037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

I don't believe this was real-time, though. Seems to me like they pulled a Killzone 2.

At no point do they say it was in-game footage. They simply said it was "using the engine", which is a very vague statement that could mean anything. Yes, they put a HUD there, but I think they just added that to give the impression that it was gameplay.

The way the player moved and looked around felt too fluid and scripted to be actual gameplay

BlmThug2037d ago

It looked so good, I honestly did think it was CGI but damn those visuals stunned me :O

tapaz2037d ago

@ whoyouwit04, I thought Infamous Second Son looked almost as good as, if not better than the Deep Down demo, and it was an in-engine cutscene as per confirmation by SP themselves. Needless to say, it looked better than the Watch_Dogs demo (which ran on a PC equipped with PS4 specs) by miles. So are you gonna tell me that the Infamous cinematic was also running on PC? This can pretty much be said about the U4 demo as well. Just like PLASTICA-MAN said, don't lower your hopes so much. Welcome to next-gen.

Dee_912036d ago

Great explanation
but what makes you think that model wasnt high poly?
That was rendered in mudbox I think, and the wireframe isnt an actual representation of the polygons, its an "isoline display".

DaThreats2037d ago

Is it confirmed that trailer is real-time graphics on the PS4?

PLASTICA-MAN2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

Watch the presentation starting at 01:27:00

At 1:30:40, they said the engine was developed and suited for the PS4, so it pretty much confirms it:

Edit: At 1:31:35

"I would to like to show you a new IP running on PS4 using the Panta Rhei Engine".

Edit 2: @ whoyouwit04, did you read this comment?

whoyouwit042037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

That doesn't confirm any thing, I want believe that was running on PS4 unless I see someone playing it watch dog was running on a pc and it looks no where near as good as this, there is no way this was running on PS4. I'm not saying that games aren't going to look like that but there is no way in hell they have a game looking that good already.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

I want to believe but I have to see gameplay sorry.

A capcom game blows away a 1st party game? idk..

Kennytaur2037d ago

Dude, sit down. He says "representing a new game running on the Playstation 4". So it's not real time on the ps4, but either a pre rendered in-engine trailer, or running on a PC.

princejb1342036d ago

This is cgi
Our current consoles can show cgi like this

They should show gameplay to actually wow us

Chupa-Chupa2037d ago

During the gameplay demo, you can actually see the hud bottom left. It's running on the PS4.

Kingdom Come2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

Wait, so you think that just because a HUD is featured within a trailer, it's gameplay, that's just a trick of the trade, just look at the Zelda WiiU Tech Demo? That wasn't a gameplay trailer for "Deep Down", that was a concept trailer, look at the camera movements, they look way to fluid to be in-game. That was not gameplay...

If you genuinely believe that to have been gameplay footage, you're delusional, and should expect to be disappointed on the games release...

ThatXboxGuy2037d ago

" they look way to fluid to be in-game. That was not gameplay..."

Welcome to next gen.

Qrphe2037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

I'd be with you but to be fair the face models aren't very good plus there are some imperfections on the video itself that would not have happened in CG.

Read the first post for as reference (even if I do not agree with some of the details by him/her).

Shadow Fall looked more impressive to me anyway.

gta28002037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

Might not be direct gameplay but I think they will get close to that trailer. Killzone Shadow Fall footage is turning me into a believer.

hulk_bash19872037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

@Kingdom Come

We don't know how long these games or engines have been in development. And we have no idea exactly what the PS4 is capable of so to just flat out deny that this could possibly be in game is very close-minded.

ThatXboxGuy2036d ago

I'm delusional? This game has the exact same combat camera style as Dragons dogma.Only difference is better animations and obviously, better graphics.

How is it so hard to believe this is what the game could look like? I know some parts of this are probably smoke and mirrors but i can easily see gameplay too.

Moncole2037d ago

You do know you can add a hud to any video with video editing software? I can take a movie and add the HL2 hud to it.

squarecircle2036d ago

I didn't think people were actually going to fall for that... Seriously?

WeAreLegion2037d ago

Possibly. If that head tech demo from David Cage was anything to go by, however, there could be a pretty big competition.

BushLitter2037d ago

The thing is that clip showed no real gameplay.

Kamikaze1352037d ago

Yep. Looked nice, but I see no reason to get excited over it just yet.

ABizzel12037d ago

There was a tiny section where the group is walking through the cave. It looks like gameplay.

Other than that no
