These new screenshots include a look at the vehicles from the trailer, the jungle surroundings, and new use of Havok physics.
I really enjoyed the first one and it seems that they are taking it up a few knotches.
I do think it's going to look better then the first though. If they manage to improve as much as insomniac has, then I think the game will be out of control.
The graphics in-game will be great no doubt but it won't look like that trailer. Remember the Opening scene on Motorstorm? Great graphics but not in-game
I haven't played the first one, but I'm really interested.. I hope it has online split-screen, that would totally rock!!
Yeah its obvious that the in game graphics wont look like the trailer, but im pretty sure that Evolution Studios will make an excellent work in terms of graphics
Hey at least it doesn't say "Male Cleavage"
it's all CGI so doesn't bother .. :/ Intro in MS1 was partialy CGI about half was in game.
nice. wont look as good in the final game but still nice
No doubt about that. Pre-ordered when available.
Well the first MS only used 15-20% of the SPUs - "MotorStorm only uses between 15 and 20 percent of available SPU resource, so we’re aiming to achieve a 5 fold increase in SPU performance, which should allow us to do some awesome stuff!" I'm kinda hoping they surprise us and it comes really close to this trailer.
That's marketing talk. Don't get caught up in it, just take it with a grain of salt.
This isn't marketing talk. The guy that said this was Scott Kirkland - technical director of Evolution Studios before Sony bought them out. I am curious though as to how SPUs have an effect directly on motion rendering. So far they've been greatly useful with physics and AI, but not so much the graphics part. I guess we'll see - everything's taken with a grain of salt! =)
***** I am curious though as to how SPUs have an effect directly on motion rendering. So far they've been greatly useful with physics and AI, but not so much the graphics part. ***** SPUs could probably be used to calculate some pixel operations, like blurring, etc, thereby saving the RSX from having to do it. They're just number crunchers, basically, so if you could use them to do graphics calculations then they'll help. I have no idea if they can do that, though, as the bandwidth between the SPEs and the RSX may be way too small to pull off something like that. ------------ For the most part, though, my understanding of SPEs is that they're sorta like the "math coprocessors" back in the old computer days -- when your CPU didn't have one built-in, you could order one online and slap it on your motherboard, and your CPU would do floating point operations a hell of a lot faster. They don't directly affect graphics, though, which a lot of people I don't think realize. The RSX is still the limiting factor on graphics, just like any other console or PC with their graphics cards. You can have the fastest CPU in the known universe, but you're limited to how much your graphics processor can push out at any given time, when it comes to graphics. Time will tell, though! Supposedly GTA5 is going to be running at 1080P/60FPS, and if that's true, then it's proof the RSX can push out some nice eye candy. I dunno, I could be totally wrong and the SPEs can largely, directly influence graphics...that would be interesting information also!
any different then the ones in the trailer? Are they CGI as well? Sorry ... I was out of the office and got a chance to check out the trailer but, now I'm back in the office and am getting blocked from that site.
I'll wait for in game screenshots.
I think they will get close the CGI in the trailer. Sony did buy Evolution Studios and they have all the resources Sony has to offer. I think MotorStorm 2 will be a vast improvement over the original. Just my opinion.
.1 - Meh. That's marketing talk. Don't get caught up in it, just take it with a grain of salt. That is not marketing talk. If you view the insomniac pp file, you'd know this. Resistance 1, hardly used any spu resources. Resistance 2, use them in abumdance, meaning that the amount of data,geometry,textures,etc. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with whats coming, both graphically and physics wise.
is it just me or was the music just perfect for that trailer - i hope they bring that type of high beat music to the game. 2nd of all - i see alot of ppl saying that the game wont look like the trailer..hmmm...remember KZ2 CGI trailer?? do u remember the ALPHA in-game footage of KZ2...some area looked better then the CGI. i expect this game to come very close and in some areas exceed this trailer. ppl need to remember that the PS3 hasnt been full tap in what its able to do. all devs say that its only using like half of the power. i loved the first Motorstorm and this MS2 just got me all excited all over again. expect great things from this game...another must-have game. with a fall release date...i dont think im gonna have any money for christmas presents for anyone....and YES!..this game would make me greedy therefor no presents for any1 hahaha must save money for all the a$$-kicking games in the fall we all know which ones they are
Well if it even looks half as good as these screens it'll be awesome. Remember everyone said the same about the first one after seeing the initial footage, and they pulled that off, so I'm staying hopefull.
Im pretty sure the graphics are going to be pretty damn close alot of good games are coming out this fall......)runs to the liqure store and buys a bag full of lottery tickets) crown,crown,crown...PINEAPLLE dammit next
with the game not really being very far off i dont think they would release CGI footage which looked shiit loads better than the actual game is. I think the game is very close to that trailer and now and they are working, polishing the shiit out of it so come release date it will look as good.
If that were the graphics( which is not) i would most likely throw my laptop at my tv...
this game will be so awesome, it's gonna be more than just desert maps!
Nice decision to go tropical.Slushy road with loads of flying dirt and muddy vehicles will RULE ! I didn't buy Motorstorm coz it didn;t have split screen, this one has it and I will buy it ! :)
