Looks great can't for this remastered collection

abzdine1111d ago

yes they didn't only apply the HD filter they added some roundings around the arms and edges.

Pretty cool effort i'll buy this collection now SE finally treats their fans the way deserve!

character models look better on the PS3 remake but everything else looks much better on the PCSX2.

True, however the emulator is likely chucking on a bunch of effects that most devs would never dream of using anyway. If you look at some of the other screens the character models are also strangely elongated in the screens from PCSX2, it's likely when they were taken there was a lot more than just AA in use on the emulator

Gotta love comparisons of 'HD' remakes with sub-HD screenshots.... Games are in 1080p / 720p and we get comparisons in 600x300...

smh

Why do people call these HD remakes? They arent and it gives a different impression of what they are. These are HD remasters.

A remake is the new freddy movie that came out last year. A remaster is more along the lines of prettying up a DVD to release it on Blu-ray.

@ Minato

Shhhhh, common sense isn't allowed on the internet, you know that.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

hard to tell really. The textures in the ps3 version look higher rez but less saturated than in the pcx2 version.

Also it does almost look like the poly count is bigger in the ps3 version... hard to tell though. Look at riku's hair. Her braid is less angular in the ps3 version.

SoapShoes1112d ago

I disagree. The character models are better, the hair is noticeably more detailed and if you look at the clouds the sky is more detailed as well. I also noticed that foliage looked better too.

ShinMaster1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

Backgrounds are just darker on PCSX2 smh.

CEOSteveBallmer1112d ago

No it doesn't. The PCSX2 version just have a darker color scheme, and the colors look saturated. But You can't be serious that there is more textures and polygons in there right? The developers know what theyre doing.

Oh_Yeah1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

The PCSX2 looks over saturated and oily. Probably due to the heavy AA that person used and their rgb settings, it's definitely not as easy on the eye as the remaster.

darthawesome901112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

I got to say the PS3 version looks better than when I put my FFX PS2 disc in my beast of a gaming PC and emulate it. That's pretty good considering with the PCSX2 I can make it look far better and run at a higher resolution than the developers at the time ever thought possible.

One downside though...The colors look more washed out and not as vivid on the PS3 as the PCSX2 version. Still better than the PS2 version though.

Oh and by the way the PCSX2 doesn't look over-saturated when I play it.

ShinMaster1111d ago

You're still only upscaling a natively low res game. You won't get the same detail as with a proper PS3 remaster, especially when they add higher res textures. Just like with every game.

Also, it's cleaner, not washed out and your TV will add extra contrast anyway.

Yeah we dont care about that. Much rather have a case and add this to my PS3 library.

kalkano1112d ago

Looks best on PS3. Unfortunately, it plays like crap and has a ridiculous story on all versions.

GeckoPutt1112d ago

Opinions are like assholes...

I think that it looks beautiful in HD. The emulator does an absolutely FANTASTIC job at upping the resolution, but they've completely redone the textures and it looks absolutely brilliant; something which can't be emulated on a PC.

As for the "playing like crap" comment, the Battle system is one of the best things about this game! It might not be the story, but the gameplay is great.

White_Tiger1112d ago (Edited 1112d ago )

Totally agree broheeme,. x-2 actually has the best gameplay out of the series, story was OK, but it is an expansion of the universe we fell in love with in X, I don't mind. I actually liked that it was laid back until the ending.

X was amazing tho, holy cow that was a good game, can't wait to play it again, the HD remaster is a huge improvement.

FamilyGuy1108d ago

LMAO at that second part

kalkano1108d ago

The amount of disagrees are more than a little shocking...Clearly, these are the opinions that are getting us a 13-3.
