This game is so much better than i could have imagined anything you see on the internet does not even do this game justice until you see it on an hdtv running at 720p... took long enough to get this on marketplace, but just like the game, its worth the wait!!!
Jees... I first saw it on the internet. It looked nice, but then I went from office to my 360 and HDTV... really what I saw is jaw dropping... like nr. 2 says OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG For real guys. This sells 360. This rocks this Christmas. No one can stands this and say: I'll buy an other console and enjoy other games. Just simply can't
I dont know if this is CG or the Games engine, It looks SO damn good, Almost to good to be true. If this is inengine stuff then im sold.
according to major nelson and other sources it is ingame... which is just so hard to believe... but i've got my copy pre-ordered and so i'll know in 13 days (nov 8th at EB games yo!)
...that indicates real-time gameplay footage, which this obviously is not. But still, like I said, it's a testament to the beauty of UE3.
sorry, in-game engine---see my post below
...but with enhanced visuals over the gameplay, obviously. That's the thing about UE3...you don't have to pay a CGI film company to make your trailers (*cough*Killzone2*cough*), because the engine is so flexible, and easy to use.
"This is the commercial that was played last week at X'06 Canada. It was created entirely with the in-game engine"- Major nelsom i'm not sure what he means by "in-game engine" but it certainly sounds like it was taken from the gameplay engine... when something is just inengine it means its spiffed up (like halo 2 cutscenes) but i think that this is actually in-game... but like i said, we'll know soon enough ;-)
...but he really doesn't know his gaming terminology very well. Like I said, the distinction between "in-engine" and "in-game" is whether or not it's from real-time gameplay, or a pre-rendered movie, using the same engine. It's obvious this isn't gameplay, and looks considerably more cinematic than any gameplay we've seen....but it's still in-engine.
what needs to be seen is how much they added to this trailer... as in, will this graphical fidelity translate into in-game... i hope it does... This is the first time i've seen footage of the engine outside of internet sources... running at 720p on my samsung lcd and it looks outstanding.. if the game does look like that sony will have trouble arguing that their system is significantly better graphically (i would say they are on par with each other, with neither system really being better in the graphics department)
Major Nelson does know his gaming terminology :) Your distinction between "in-game" and "in-engine" is semi-correct, but remember that "engine" can mean more than one thing (e.g. a separate graphics engine like those which they use for CG cinematics). "In-game engine", which is what Major Nelson said, merely means that the engine used in the game was the one that was used to produce the footage. This in no way means that the footage is taken from the game, just that the game engine is used to produce it. It's just pedantry, but I thought I'd straighten that out for you :)
That was a very deep and beautiful trailer! I wonder if there will be moments in this game that touch u kind of like Transformers the movie did when I was a kid! I mean Cliffy is a big fan of that show so i wouldn't be surprised if gears made us all drop a few tears in the game! So if your a real emotional person this game might not be a good choice for u because I would hate to hear u crying over Live in co-op!
Yeah guys it's INENGINE "This gripping ad was produced entirely on in game engine. "
...the song is "Mad World" by Gary Jules, and it was featured on the Donnie Darko soundtrack. ;) And if you haven't seen Donnie Darko...you need your ass kicked between your ears. :|
Was going to ask who sang that song ...and you already had answered. :)
1- the choice of song against the imagery is very striking and beautiful in places. The aching music against the violent images will catch many peoples attention, even non gamers. It is shocking and attention grabbing. Not what people expect from game adverts. I predict this advert alone will shift 360's to new customers. 2- Graphics. In game engine. One word: Whoa. I have never seen anything on any other console come close. 3- It reminds me of bungie and halo- the soft gentle music against the brutality of warfare. very nice. though halo's score was original... It also has that classy adult feel that Halo manages. 4- damn why that song though it makes me sooooo sad and remember not so good moments of my life. argh. 5- donnie darko is great.
very very nice indeed! UE3 at its finest looking at this! lets all hope the game matches the visuals!!!
wow this is great the best graphics ive ever seen i just cant wait to play this game, this game alone will sell millions of 360's ,we are so lucky to own a 360 sorry ps2 lover but your missing out on the best game ever made
I just downloaded the Gears trailer off of Live....all I can say is OMG THIS IS GONNA BE A GREAT GAME!!! Trailer is done "in game engine" graphics.... which was INCREDIBLE! I can't say the last time a game trailer gave me goose bumps...this one did it. Completely struck an emotional chord inside me. Great choice of a song to go with the video clip. Honestly just over the top incredible imagry that seemed perfectly matched to the song... JUST OMFG....I still am catching my breath.
Didn't the Halo 3 trailer give you goose bumps.
Honestly...no it didn't. I guess I expected the trailer for H3 to be good...and the Halo music score while great is something I am used to hearing now. This trailer on the other hand was completely unexpected...and remarkably good! Way better than I expeceted, and my expectations were already high on this game.
I downloaded the 480p version of this as i did not want to wait to download the 720p version and it is amazing, i can't wait to see it running in HD on my PC monitor.
...its worth the wait.
Wait for 60 MB? Don't know what connection you have, but it was here in no time And yes it's worth any wait. 2 minutes, 20 minutes, 2 hours :)
W+O+W If this is how MS is going to market this game.. its a wonderful plan. This WILL pull in non gamers.. fantastic!
I watched it 9x in a row. [email protected] I can just imagine the effect this game will have on the popularity of the 360.
I have a 27" LCD, 480p, 720p, and 1080i. The game looks awesome. Seeing how my Flatscreen does 720p natively, that is the setting I prefer, and this game looks amazing on it. BTW I have already paid for the game, just waiting to go pick it up.
P.S.: the guy who voted "Lame" is a [email protected] There is nothing lame about that trailer.
...they meant "lame that it's not coming to the PS3". ;)
I think they're scared...Hehe anyway, Man I cant stop watching it, Its amazing.
that was an amazing trailer, those are crazy graphics too. i can't wait for this game
I'm pretty sure the song is a remake of a Tears for Fears Song from the 80's.
Can't wait! That song is incredible!
Nice find on youtube! Hadn't seen the vid before...honestly was kinda impressed by the video too. Interesting art direction for sure.
You guys have said it all.
I`ve already pre-ordered mine and it`s gonna be picked up the very minute Gamestop opens! Whoever doesn`t pre-order isn`t gonna find this game anywhere easy! better preorder NOW!
Sike... I wish I could have seen all of your faces... especially "The Mart"! lol This trailer was da sh!t. Plain and simple. I'm going to pre-order this and I don't even have a system yet. This WILL sell systems. This WILL increase brand awareness for the 360. I know haters will probably say how do you know if its good when you haven't even played it, but sometimes you just get that feeling that a AAA title is upon you. Think back to the first time you seen Halo, Ninja Gaiden, God of War, GTA, etc. You just know its something special even before you play it. Thanks Epic for not putting out bull sh!t like most Japenese developers who save all there time and energy to put high quality material on the PS3.
Its an amazing looking game when it is in play - see what im saying Sony True Fanboys. IM OUT.
Your very much a speachless bud.
good song amazing video have downloaded on my 360 =) watching it in 720p
I am stoked on this game as much as anyone but this trailer isnt what you guys are making it out to be. I think its kind of fruity if you know what I mean. The game play footage gets my blood pumping.
Thats whats so cool about it though, it touches on the emotional side of chainsawing somebody in half.
Man i don't know what to say every one say everything.So that beeing said thanks, P.S i will pick up this game this is JoeRated R game tag name i see ya there nov-7
im stuck at work and my work PC can not watch that trailer and it won't allow me to install Flash player 9. just 1 more hour till i get off of work and arrive home!
Two weeks and i'll be shooting, sawing, driving, running through mud and yelling orders at avatars and friends. Bring it on!.
Don't watch the online trailer... That's really not giving the thing the way it should be displayed! Get to a 360, if you don't have one yourself go to a friend who has one. Download the 720p version, pump up the 5.1 surround soundset and be totally flabbergasted!!! You need to watch it over and over again, I can assure you! nr. 30 you didn't get the greatness that it had by being the total opposite of what you'd expect. And did you watch the trailer on the PC/internet or the 360??? And again smelling fear from some Sony guys voting lame. It's just too freaking funny. We smell it guys heavy fear. nr. 25 right on man. Funny to hear you're going to order the game even not owning a 360 yet. And that alone on the trailer on the internet/your PC? Jees man. You should be able to watch it on the 360... Sorry guys I am going to add this comment now, run back to the 360 and play the damn fine inengine trailer again and again and again untill 3m3rg3nc3 day is here!
The Best Game Ad I have EVER seen, Its truly awesome, One thing bothering me though....Did Marcus die at the end there?
That trailer was perfect, it's the only trailer that has made me feel the emotion of the game. it, it, it's beautiful.

Seriously at least in Halo the songs in it actually match what you see in the visuals!!!
Listen to the song bud, worn out places, worn out faces, the streets and buildings look pretty worn out to me, as does the face of the statue he holds in his hand.
It's called atmosphere, or maybe you prefer simple guns blazing full FX with heavey metal in the background; i'm all for it (sarcasm) The song made you feel sad about the state of the planet and made you feel for Marcus, something that's hard to do indeed.
Listen to the music in the Halo 3 Trailer!
It's funny how one guy has a different opinion and you people jump on him for it.
It was an example, i wasn't being literal
I have just started to make a picture for Gears of War and its not finished yet, i using fireworks 8 as i want to see what i can do if this program compared to photoshop. I have also preordered the Gears of War special edition and its coming November 17th. [url= http://imageshack.us][img= http://img120.imageshack.us... Sorry if the link is not working.
THE SONG IS FROM THE MOVIE: DONNIE DARKO
I could have sworn it was just used in Donnie Darko, not made for it.
wow, wow, wow, wow, i am stoked for this game. IT SHALL BE GREAT. i cannot wait. this and cod3. boom!! that is great.
i am so glad i own a 360. beautiful trailer with stunning visuals. well done to those people who made that trailer.
After everyones comments, I was expecting more action in the trailer. But this TV spot showed off the art direction and graphics just fine, hail Gears!
The song is actually a Tears for Fears song, it was covered in Donnie Darko. The cover is what was used for this video. I'm watching this video and thinking to myself how much unimaginably tragic it is for this guy to see his civilization crumble to ashes...and how lonely it all is. And when you look at it from that perspective, that song just drive the feeling home.
The song was suppose to show a once powerful civilivation that is all but forgoten(destroyed) and the struggle of the impossible odds of servival(humans are like animals being hunted). lol J/K i thought it showed the human side of the game with class and depth. I know you wanted heavy metal whatever it's called, you can't win them all. Cliffy B. and MS are going for an Cinamatic Thriller with this tittle(interactive movie)when you pick this tittle up you'll know what im talking about.
so why isnt this the top story?! c'mon dusty
I heard someone ask the difference between "in-game" and "in Engine" so ill provide a simple definition. "In Game" = to run on the platform the final code is designed for. (running on the 360) "In Engine" = to run the engine on anything, be it the 360 or a development computer using UE3 this lingo can be confusing. be aware that in engine is usually not in game. ill provide the opening sequence for "ghost recon advanced war fighter" for example. that was "In Engine" but "Pre" rendered on a faster machine and recorded into hd video. all in engine but not in game. But.... this video is right on the brink of me saying in engine or in game i honestly am torn this is almost believable which makes me happy. if it is in game, it is absolutely amazing but otherwise you will see a bit toned down graphics in the final game. ps. i am totally neutral so please don't bash me.
The animation looks slightly jumpy and simple wich tells me that the game looks like this and all they did to make the AD is move the camera around and used halo style cutscens(alter real gameplay).
