Final Fantasy X HD Vs PS2 with one GIF

Product-Reviews writes: The screenshots that we have seen for Final Fantasy X HD so far are very impressive to say the least, but this GIF image gives you a clear idea of the key differences in quality between the two. Considering the long period of development and Square-Enix’ reluctance to give out information on the game, it tell us that this isn’t just a bog standard lazy port. (Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, PS Vita, PS2, PS3)

Impressive screenshots.
FamilyGuy  +   474d ago
Been looking forward to this, I really wish some of my anticipated games would come out already. As it stands it looks like everything I want will be releasing right next to each other later this year -_-

Dragon's Crown
South Park the Stick of Truth
Beyond two souls
The Last of us
PS4 with Infamous Second Son
Monolith softs Wii-U RPG
FF14 on PS3
Possibly GTA 6

Probably forgetting something but the point is this waiting sucks.
MoveTheGlow  +   473d ago
I'm pretty sure Monolith confirmed that it's Xenoblade Chronicles 2, so that's even better news :)
SpaceGhost  +   473d ago
You're missing Thief 4 there good sir. Other then the sports game that I suck at, I agree
inveni0  +   473d ago
I'm actually a little nervous about Thief 4. The magic of Thief was its peers when it released. When it first hit our screens, we'd never seen stealth applied to an FPS. That was a major part of the magic.

This means that the team bringing back Thief will need to do something with stealth that we haven't seen before. Even just one major mechanic that you don't get from other games will do it, but it HAS to be there, or it risks being just another game.

GTA 6? =P

Anyway waiting for games only to go bankrupt when they all release at the same time is the joy of being a gamer.
And just think, it makes us really good at managing finances, so that's a thing.

What is so impressive about this? All they did was redraw the textures and render it at a higher resolution.

Obviously you are a FF-X fan. But why are people hyping this so badly? Good for those who are fans...but seriously this is not "impressive".

They literally did a texture revamp. Look at the sprite grass, they haven't even added more flora. So I take the environment hasn't been touched either.
TopDudeMan  +   473d ago
Because ffx was a good game and a lot of people haven't played it since the PS2 was last relevant.

For some people an up-scaling to a higher resolution is more than enough reason to be excited for this.

In Europe we were also screwed over with a terrible 50hz PAL port complete with black borders. We are all delighted to get this too.
GEO9875  +   473d ago
I agreee, oh well the jrpgnophiles are like this always...

I just want it on my vita
Cryptcuzz  +   473d ago
I'm excited for this simply because I enjoyed the original game on the PS2. That is why I will be getting this game.

I really liked the battle system as well as the sphere grid that lets you choose how you wanted to upgrade your characters. The story line kept me hooked til the end and the ending was and is still good til this day.

On top of that, the summons were so awesome.

Compared to FF 13, the summons in this game is way better compared to FF13 and is more in line with how the past Final fantasy game summonings are suppose to be.

In 13, I was put off at how they were like mechanical vehicles (bad design) and simply did not have the same nostalgic feelings as previous FF games.

FFX also had memorable characters that the series is known for. All the characters were liked and had a personality. Compared to FF 13 and its character, this game had a much better cast that overall is liked by the fans.

I understand if you do not like JRPG or RPG games in general, then this is not for you, but those who are should be excited for this game.

Whats not to like in seeing one of your beloved games in greater detail in a remastered release?

Ask the millions that go watch and buy all the remastered releases of Disney classics.

Auron's textures appear to look worse in the remaster, but that might just be because he is farther from the camera. Conversely, going closer to the camera we see Lulu looks even more stunning. =P

If they can do this with Final Fantasy X, imagine what they could do with FFVII and FFVIII.

FamilyGuy  +   474d ago
That would be completely different, all they're doing here is laying textures on top of the base models and environments. For FF7 it would look better sure, but they'd still be in that chibi sprite form.

People want the PS3 tech demo version, or the one from the ff7 movie, not the shrimpy bobble-heads of the original with textures slapped on like they were about to do here.
CLOUD1983  +   473d ago
Don't talk about every1 because in my case I believe that realistic models would destroy many humorous scenes in FFVII so I believe that "if" they decide to remake FFVII sometime in the future the "out-of-battle" models must remain in that chibi form as u say but they can put all the effort they want to make the "in-battle" models as realistic & awesome as possible, that's the best direction in order to not destroy the game imo.
FamilyGuy  +   473d ago
@ Cloud

I clearly said "People", not "everyone", I get what you're saying and I was referring to the majority when I said that but who am I to say even that? It's just an assumed thought based on all the excitement that original PS3 FF7 tech demo brought about in a large number of people.

Anyway, you're still arguing the difference between a remake and a remaster.
Remake = change as much as they need to while leaving the essence intact.
Remaster = Cleaned up graphics without changing anything else.

Any jokes associated with those cute forms would be changed because the whole game would be changed in a remake.

Do you really think HD textures on ff7 would look good? If they were to remaster it I think the only relevant look would be cell-shading. They could then be made HD and still look cute.

awesome :D

hopefully the quality doesnt decrease on the Vita Dx
Aggesan  +   474d ago
Missed this game the fist time around, so I'm really looking forward to this!

You all getting it on Vita or Ps3?
joel_c17  +   473d ago
Vita for me
maddfoxx  +   473d ago
Vita, because no other games on the system interest me at the moment. I am tempted to just get it on PS3, because it comes with X-2.
I hope they do cross-play for this because I would love to play on the big screen when I'm home and on the vita when Im at a friends house.
GreenRanger  +   473d ago
You all stared at Lulu's breasts to see the difference between the switching images, didn't you?
Admit it!

Cross-save would be nice. That hasn't been mentioned before though.. let's wait and see.
LAWSON72  +   473d ago
I would rather see this compared to emulated on pc. I think i might buy this for trophies and it always feels good playing a ff on a playstation.
o-Sunny-o  +   473d ago
$quare$oft probably wouldn't let us get it for cross-buy(mostly Sony 1st party's do that). I'm hoping $35 the most for the Vita version and 40$ for the PS3. ^~^' idk..
Salooh  +   473d ago
This is the best final fantasy games ?. I never liked FF but if these are the best i will give them a chance in my vita. Vita gives me a feeling to play almost anything xD.
ChickeyCantor  +   473d ago
I suggest you try FF9 or FF4 . But hey thats my opinion.
Dark_king  +   473d ago
honestly no it was the start of FF going down hill.However its still is a good game an worth playing if you have never played it before.Though if your looking to play the best FF game then I suggest FF5 or FF6. FF7 is the most popular but its not actually the best in the series.
Snookies12  +   473d ago
One of the best in my opinion. As a fan who's been with the series from the first game on Nintendo.
GABRIEL1030  +   473d ago

Why is it every time news about FINAL FANTASY X|X-2 HD REMASTER comes out, people always being up FINAL FANTASY VII... It's not going to happen any time soon (if at all!), so wind it in!
BlueEye  +   473d ago
Ok holy shit! Look at Lulu's fur thing! And her hair! And the grass in the background! Damn!
FRA85  +   473d ago
they bring out new screen shots almost every week now, ok we get it it looks better.
it was'nt my favorite, for all the crap FF13 got for being too linear FF10 is where it started.
izumo_lee  +   473d ago
True FF10 started the whole linear gameplay but unlike FF13, FF10 gave the players other things to do to distract from the main story line.

Whether it be monster hunting, playing blitzball, all the side quests the game has (dodging lightning strikes!!!). Heck even NPCs to interact with & buy things from. That is what sets 10 apart & i get tired of people comparing the 2 just cause of the linear path.
izumo_lee  +   473d ago
Can't wait to boot this game up on the Vita or PS3 & hear the timeless music of 'To Zanarkand' & Tidus mutter those magical words once again...

"Listen to my story, this maybe our last"
jc48573  +   473d ago
FFX had like 3 stages of graphics if I remember correctly on the ps2. The whole point of this is to raise the gameplay graphics to a similar level as the cutscenes by simply adding more polygons and textures. I guess it was something they were unable to do at the time because Square was still learning the ps2 hardware.
Ngai  +   473d ago
gonna buy it.
ChillOut707  +   473d ago
The biggest difference in that GIF without sounding like a perv is that Lulu's breasts has become more detailed and prettier and also her fur has been way more detailed

Wow! Even the dynamic intro oozes quality. I can see why some people would be hyped over the HD version of FFX.
Hozi  +   473d ago
I had hoped SE would add extra missions and new boss battles to them both....i hope they surprise us.
LKHGFDSA  +   473d ago
I don't know why this is top story, we already saw these two screenshots compared in another article.
Also, the character models in the HD remaster are actually from the original PS2 game. If you look in the files of the iso, you can find them.
Apparently they were too resource-leaching so they only used them for cutscenes and stuff.
