Quantic Dream’s David Cage knows the PS4 quite well, well enough to be at the helm of a creation of the impressive “The Dark Sorcerer“ tech demo, that turned quite a few heads at E3, and today he expressed what he thinks about the upcoming machine.
And so I'm looking forward to it. Already preordered my bundled machine with Killzone: Shadow Fall, Battlefield 4 and PS Plus. Gaming heaven I reckon.
No Killzone for me, th franchise tends to drop in price pretty steeply soon after launch for some reason so i'll wait. I got Watch_Dogs and Knack so far.
@Killzoner99: Supporting Sony? I'm not a fanboy. I support myself. Why should I think about "supporting" a corporation that doesn't even know I xist? It's good enough that I don't buy used.
@Killzoner: So are you pro DRM then?
@killzone & abriel your both wrong,if the games is purchased at a reduce cost they still get the money,if no one buys the game new either full price or some kind of bundle then that company can't produce any more games.
@Killzoner Lacking? GT5 sold 10.45 million. UC3 5.49 million. Heavy Rain even 2.45 million.
Honestly, I don't know how it works when you buy the game late in the retail. Is it just a game that the retail already paid the publisher/developer? Or would it works more like consignment?
I don't agree with the Killzoner99 comment but flagging him for trolling is silly, it was just an opinion. @Killzoner99 games need to prove themselves worth the full $60, were not in a charity, if Abriael gets more hyped or the price doesn't fall he may get it at full price or never, it's all a matter of preference.
so in other words all their future games will be PS4 exclusives.
Cage: PS4 a “Fantastic Hardware” with “Incredibly Realistic Graphics” enables “Totally New Features” From a guy paid by Sony, just for info.
As far as I know Quantic Dream isn't owned by Sony. Can you imagine that he is just excited to work on a new platform. It's not like he is throwing empty words around. Everything he said sounds reasonable.
it´s not only from this guy, pretty every developer praises PS4 even console-haters like Crytek, just for info
Quantic Dream isn't owned by Sony. It's actually not even a second party studio AFAIK
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... They're Third Party. However you can consider them Second Party as their last two games (Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls) are exclusive to the PS3 and Cage hasn't shown any indication of production for other platforms beyond the PlayStation platform. Quantic Dream is in no way owned by Sony or anyone else for that matter. They are an independent company that provides motion capture services to the game and film industry. Their games have just been offshoots to promote their motion capture technology - granted their games have also done much to redefine or create entirely new genres of games.
but all the devs paid by ms that talk up the cloud should be believed. and sony doesn't own quantic dream
mark LAchance as troll and carry on guys its that easy, if you do it to all the xbone fanboys they wont have any bubbles to talk with, then all we will be left with is the decent ones. Every dev will be happy about the ps4 it was made by devs.
Killzoner is speaking nonsense. I buy games to play them for my entertainment, not to support a company. Me spending $60 on a game I can get a short time later for $30 or $40 is just stupid.
PS4. ok where is my 60fps and 1080p resolution ? oh i can only choose one? Next gen my ***
you forgot to mention "In games that are in unoptimized pre-alpha state and about 30% of their development" It tends to be a rather relevant element, unless you're intentionally trying to be disingenuous of course.
Killzone shadowfall 1080p locked at 30frames. Only game I heard of that has both is Forza 5 1080p & 60fps. Boom Top LULS
@BlueDodger323: yeah because a single game (not even completed) speaks for the whole console rite? Yeah, you're being disingenuous.
GT5 1080p 60fps. enough said
Foza: no real time weather effects, no day/night modes, baked lighting. In order to achieve that 60/1080p it had to sacrifice a lot.
Most racing games are 60 fps not impressive and you can't compare a fps to a racing game. Is ryse 1080p 60fps?
idk if you're throwing that X1 exclusive at me because you think im a fanboy or because you're a fanboy ?
@BlueDodger323 You mentioned forza running running at 1080p 60fps which is not impressive because it is a racing game.
If i'm not mistaken Gran Turismo & Wipeout on PS3 has been 1080p 60fps since ages and Rage has been 60fps 1080p on both current systems. So what's the big deal with 60fps & 1080p? This is not what makes Next-Gen graphical quality different....Physics/A.I./no loadtimes/no more low-resolution textures or pop-ins what so ever/incredible view distances/complex particle systems/more complex realitistic lightening/incredible detailed characters/complex facial animations/no more jagged edges/better anti-aliasing etc.etc Give me 30fps 1080p/720p with all these features and more and i can tell the difference between this gen and NextGen immediately. Watch the behind the scenes of the Dark Sorcerer and you will see that IT IS ALL IN REALTIME on PS4! Incredible! Definitely worthy of being called close to CGI quality and certainly not possible on current gen, forget 60fps...all CGI movies in the cinema are 24fps, do we mind? It's still F'ing incredible!
no its 1080p at 30 fps
You know what i find interesting about that statement. FORZA has higher rez, Higher textures - No Dynamic weather,lighting. As for Titanfall. Uses Source engine which would run on any pc rig at stupid fps at any rez. Not saying they are bad games, but i haven't seen a MS game that pushes boundaries.
Source is so damn old
Amazing how people keep talking about 60fps and 1080p as the only standards for Next gen, its not even at launch and people are complaining. There are more to next gen than just resolution and frames per second.
First of all ps4 can run all pc games on 60fps and 1080p. The games we saw are early games. Most of them didn't announce what they will use. It's obvious that they can run on these settings but it's developers choice.. Ps4 games are not normal games . They are going for another level . That's why it's called next generation. So even if it can't do it at least we will get new level of gaming..
no it can't
Battlefield 3 is one of the biggest games in pc , right ?. http://ps3trophies.com/foru... BF4 at least 2 times better then BF3 pc version. And i'm 100% sure that it doesn't use all of the ps4 power. I even think it's less then 50%..
We could have hardware 10 times more powerful than the PS4 and devs could still decide to push for visual fidelity instead of performance. I can play Pacman at 4k and 100 fps - Does it make it next gen?
Even Wipeout HD on PS3 could do 1080p 60 FPS so Forza's thing is nothing special. Also, I saw Titanfall running at 720 p so GG.
how bad is titanfall , i didnt realise till i saw the direct feed screens lol , i thought it was meant to be some xbone graphic powerhouse it looks more like a 360 average cod with mechs.
I'd like to hear Cage comment on how much easier it was to make The Dark Sorcerer as compared to The Casting, since each was the first tech demo on it's respective Playstation.
I agree I'd also like to know how long it took them to create It considering the ps4 is much easier to develop for. This will determine how regular we'll get exclusives, multiplayer and deferent genres
About time Sony snapped up Quantic Dream
@abriael You know as much as I know... NOTHING. I'm pretty positive you work for one of these companies, you know "SO MUCH".
And yet you're talking like you know SO MUCH. How's that work? You just admitted your ignorance, but you're also acting as if you know it all?
I'll use my last bubble on you <3...... LOL
I cant wait... Also looking forward to the webbrowser.. I hope its reaaally fast compared to the ps3 browser /:
More than fast, I hope it's less clunky...
With the PS4 and its its available memory and speed of said memory, I am pretty certain the browser will be a much much better. PS4 OS is also based on FreeBSD, low memory foot print with speed and multi-tasking as its specialty. I am not sure the internet browser is confirmed to be on the PS4, but I sure hope so! The DualShock 4 and its touch pad seems like a perfect fit for the browser. So with that said, I look forward to finding out whether the browser would be apart of the OS and how much better it is compared to its predecessor. Cheers.
Nothing looked better than quantum a tech demo graphically at e3 I'm excited to see what they have in store for ps4
@xReDeMpTiOnx Hell yes!
lol you get 5 disagrees for stating the truth, i challenge anyone to name any game that looked better than this at E3.
@magoo yeah I know this community has its ways. But they can't not one game/cgi trailer looked better, that techno demo was all ingame
I'm hoping to see something new from QD at next years E3 seeing that Beyond releases in like 2 months.
they must release beyond two souls for ps4 too its nothing less than call of duty ghost graphically
give me ps4 or give me death
Can you wait until around October/November? If not, I am afraid you leave us with only one option :) jk. give me ps4 (at least by end of the year) or give me death.
This guy should learn that games need gameplay. xD
I enjoyed playing games where narrative plays a great part of the game. Its a breathe of fresh air where games like COD straight out drained all the fun in playing a game with their same shit every year. COD ain't the only suspect, but who am I to judge. Its good to have options.
