It's a shame Super Mario World is only in 16-bit....

It's not a shame....we should be grateful we get to play this game on any console.

Pl4sm41566d ago

ape0071566d ago

ain't no different than 1080P

PurpHerbison1566d ago

It kind of is a shame to be honest.

Muffins12231566d ago

Yea i would wait for the pc or ps4 version...

ZombieKiller1566d ago

@Lior- dude those are 1st world problems. a game this size running on 7 year old hardware...consider yourself lucky....and spoiled.

deafdani1565d ago

If it is 720p, it will be a marked step up from GTA IV and its expansions (Gay Tony and Lost & Damned), which ran all at 640p, at least on the PS3. The resolution looked decent on my 32" 720p Sony Bravia when I first played those games, but when I replayed them on my upgraded TV (full HD 50" Viera), my eyes bled. So. Damn. Blurry.


xflo3601565d ago

@3-4-5 Its a shame that more gamers aren't like me and you (cup half-full people).

We are spoilt as gamers these days: Online, free demo's, cheap games, variety and choice, great value consoles, very cheap mobile gaming etc.. Yet there are still those who moan and squabble about petty little things that just dont matter.

Just play your games people, and love life!

FlyingFoxy1565d ago

1080P if you want high framerate, in game graphic settings affect much more how the game looks over resolution.

I'm waitin on the pc version anyway hoping Rockstar do a good job this time and have a huge multiplayer. otherwise its back to SA-MP again.

It'll be the perfect terrorism-simulator for that area. Or at least that's what the news channels will be saying around release.

We all know it's coming. It happens with every GTA game.


It's still not 1:1... It's really scaled down and some areas are different (and I think it's on purpose, you don't want to go too realistic when you can do whatever you want creating your own city, you have hardware/larbour time restrictions and some stuff are just more fun if you make 'em different, afterall it's game, i.e. fun, not a simulation, i.e. realistic). So no, it can't be used as a terrorist simulator...

That said, you still have a point, if anything as minor as a kid trowing a fart bomb on a school bathroom in LA area, you can be sure we'll be hearing about GTA 5 on Fox News.

MEsoJD1566d ago

Being from SoCal is kind of surreal. I can't wait!

GT671565d ago (Edited 1565d ago )

that is wrong with games now days to much like reality
not enough FUN games these days. grand theft auto,uncharted,call of duty,battlefield,destiny list go's on. to many games focus on terrorist and not FUN anymore.illuminati got you guy's just where they want you blind.

I really need to play this to believe how big it is. I still can't picture a world map three times bigger than Red Dead.

teedogg801566d ago

I know right. And they say it's gonna be five times the size of RDR.

Oschino19071566d ago (Edited 1566d ago )

Didn't they say the land mass was 3 1/2 RDRs or bigger then GTA IV, RDR and San Andreas combined?

Unless you are counting all the water areas also, but even though you can fly over it or swim/drive on it and Scuba dive I wouldn't quite say that it's worth counting in terms of overall map size. There will be fun things to do with the water areas for sure but not nearly as much as on land.

Unless they have submarines..... Racing sumbmarines.... and an underwater city.

_-EDMIX-_1566d ago (Edited 1566d ago )

Now THATS WHAT I WANT TO HEAR! That is progress and classic Rockstar. No more of this "GTAIV little map DVD9 crap" I want the biggest, best GTA they can make.


Mutant-Spud1565d ago

Well thank goodness it'll have cars and planes and not horses.

turnerdc1566d ago (Edited 1566d ago )

Looks like 1996's Daggerfall is the reigning champ with a world map size of 62,394 square miles compared to Red Dead's map size of around 28 square miles.

Elwenil1566d ago

Minecraft is said to have the potential to generate a 1,575,605,688 square mile map so I would say it wins in overall size. It would literally take you days of real time to walk far enough to expand the map to that size though.

yess1566d ago (Edited 1566d ago )


Say hello to Outerra, planet size map, inc. space.

This is an engine not a game, but you can download and play around with the engine right now.

SpideySpeakz1566d ago

Elwenil. That would take 36 days to go from the middle of the map to the end.

MrDead1566d ago

Frontier Elite 2 gives you a galaxy where you can fly to and around any planet and any star within the game.

Dasteru1566d ago


Earth is 57,500,000 mi^2.

Minecraft 1,575,605,688 mi^2

If Outerra is planet size based on earth then minecraft is about 25-30x the size.

dogoodmatters1565d ago

For the time Daggerfall released, absolutely!

rooxx1565d ago

@dasteru Don't forget there's a huge difference between completely random worlds (can be made infinite) and large worlds based on real data or artistically modeled worlds.

Minecraft is essentially competing in a different category.

DeadManMcCarthy1565d ago (Edited 1565d ago )

I doubt those maps are even to scale, and not in equal proportions.
