Infamous Second Son is going to Ionic Drain everything. Suckerpunch is one of the most underrated dev teams out there. I'm happy they're gonna finally have their time to shine.

edit: I gain and lose bubbles like no one else.

Drain the competitors? I thought the Infamous games were great and am looking forward to this one but is there any game similar to Infamous coming out on any other platform? Not that I'm aware. I'd be happy to be proven wrong. Perhaps I misunderstood you? Whoops, didn't notice you have one bubble.

Wow. This game looks absolutely amazing. Here is another great exclusive for the PS4. Here the developers don't have to worry about multi console release and thus can avoid the lowest common denominator(xbone) factor and thereby take full advantage of the power on tap from the PS4. Awesome , awesome, oh and did I mention awesome?

♥ Infamous: Second Son looks amazing ♥
abzdine  +   271d ago
funny about the bubbles i noticed that too :D

These screens are insane, it feels like some horsepower is involved in there! Too bad this game cannot make it to the release date of the PS4, i can't wait to explore this beautiful world made by one of my favorite game developer.

their will be more improvements in inFAMOUS: Second Son than the graphics and animation, Sucker Punch have one of the lead gameplay designers from Halo.

At a resolution of 5,760×3,240?
Unless of course their intent is to show off the power of a high end PC.

inFamous: SS is looking great.

And here's the kicker:

Up until the official PS4 reveal a few months ago in February, devs thought the PS4 was only going to have 4 GB of GDDR5 RAM. Even 1st party devs thought the PS4 was only going to have 4 GB of RAM. In other words, these games we're seeing were built with target specs of 4 GB of RAM, but now the actual system has double that.

Let that sink in.

Imagine what games built from the ground up for ~8 GBs of RAM will look like...

you've said it all!! Sony always said that they're only scratching the surface! Now the 1000000$ question is: how thick is the surface because this is scary.

you can have 60GB of Ram and it changes nothing cause graphic fidelity all depends on the power of the GPU which is almost a AMD HD7850 so that's the limit of the PS4.

the extra ram will help on world size, A.I. complexity, on screen characters, etc..

The Ps3 suffered cause it had way too little ram but Devs got the most out of it.

The PS4 has a ton of ram but not all 8GB will be for gaming with 1GB dedicated to O.S.. so far 7GB is for Gaming but that may change as the PS4 will be tasked to do other things at the same time like recording gameplay which may take up more Ram from gaming.

HiddenMission  +   270d ago

Actually your wrong...

The recording featured is a background function that is being controlled by a secondary chip that does not task the Ram.

Everyone forgets that the secondary background chip exists and that it's a 4 core chip that will handle everything non game related in the background.

So zero impact on the Ram from that stuff.

Now that's a next gen title. And people were saying the leap to next gen won't be that big.

Genji: Days OF The Blade screenshots http://www.gameover.gr/phot...




Infamous: Second Son Screenshots http://gematsu.com/gallery/...




Genji was the only launch title that resembles Infamous in some form.

Both games are exclusive to its next gen predecessors. Its obvious Infamous looks 10x as better then Genji for a launch title so I'll say the leap is much bigger.

mattdillahunty  +   270d ago
you are either willfully blind or just ignorant if you think Infamous: Second Son is approaching Crysis 3 quality.


skip to 3:40. if you honestly feel that Infamous: SS is approaching that technical level of graphics, then you have been sucked so far down the rabbit hole of fanboyism that i genuinely feel sorry for you.
devwan  +   270d ago
tries to prove point... by linking to lossy 30fps youtube video.

Comparing ps4 launch games with PC games is a futile exercise anyway. Come back in 18 months with a better video source and knock yourself out proving your point.
dredgewalker  +   261d ago
Even if Infamous can't match Crysis 3 graphically I'm 100 percent sure that gameplay will be leaps ahead of it.
SuperSteve  +   271d ago

Show me some native-res, uncompressed GAMEPLAY video, then I'll be impressed.

Seriously, only fanboys give two shits about BULLSHOTS in 2013.

Infamous is my favorite game(s) this gen. I'm super stoked for the new release.

PS Lol at PC elietists getting all buttsore. Don't you guys have a patch to install or driver to update?
JunioRS101  +   271d ago
Just so you know though, that's only in 720p, so it STILL doesn't do the game justice.

When the game is running at 1080p 100% finished??

Get out of here SuperSteve, you're obviously just not buying a PS4.

I am ;)
SoundGamer  +   271d ago
Not sure why people are so quick to call them bullshots when the gameplay (not even the finished product) looks just as good as the screens.
theWB27  +   271d ago
You're in the wrong area...how often do we get what you're asking for? Must be hard for you to buy a game since that's what the model is. Release screenshots and a few trailers leading up till launch.

How many NATIVE UN-COMPRESSED videos can you find on the web of current gen games? Are they that prevalent to be demanding them of next gen un-finished un-released games?

Name one PC open world game that looks better. And please, don't throw Skyrim with mods at me.

Also, you're pretty contradictory, an uncompressed 1080 native pic or video would make it look even better.

Dayum do those environment screens look great. Second Son is one of the greatest looking next-gen games, and thinking that it's an open world launch title with graphics better than most of the games shown will almost boil my head. Future's looking bright for PS4.

SuperSteve  +   271d ago
You just don't get it, do you?

You and a bunch of other people on this thread need to spend some time playing on a decent PC.

THEN you'll have some clue of what we're talking about.
Braid  +   271d ago | Well said
Unfortunately Steve you've got the wrong guy to play your "get a PC" card this time, as I DO have a good gaming rig myself. Don't worry, I know exactly what I'm talking about.

What open world game looks better than that on PC? There's Sleeping Dogs and it looks good but not THAT good. Not only I understand the technology behind games but also I have perfect visual senses, so I insist on my comment above. The level of detail, shaders, polygonal details of the characters and the environment is superb for an open world game.
The_Infected  +   271d ago

Bubble for you. Well said:)
shadow2797  +   271d ago
Because the resolution of the shots is almost 6K?

Sure they could be upscaled, but judging by the quality of the anti-aliasing, I'm pretty sure they aren't.

Thus, they really are "supersampled bullshots".

The textures and polygons are the same as they'll be in the game, but the game isn't going to run at 6K and there's going to be some jaggies. Let's be realistic about it.
wishingW3L  +   270d ago
because the screens are rendered at 4k and we all know that inFamous SS will run at 4k, right? Another thing is, there are no games without jaggies and when downsampled the jaggies are gone.

When it comes to Sony stuff you guys become plain silly. =/

Allright, but what does it have to do with all the other details EXCEPT the resolution? When you call something "bullshot", it means you don't believe the authenticity of what you see, which can apply to the resolution in this case but everything else in those screens are not altered, nor do they depend on the resolution.

It'll run at 1080p, sure. But how about the gorgeous looking skin/clothing shaders, volumetric fog/smoke effects that react to light sources, or how about reactive soft shadows cast by every single object on the map (including leaves) and real-time reflections, along with tessleated assets and global illumination? Are those "bullsh#t" as well?

The final game may or may not look jaggier than this, but everything else you see is real. How do I know? Because it's one of the FEW next-gen games from the bunch that they showed "actual" in-game footage: http://goo.gl/dnGYU

When you have PC fanboys calling the screens bullshots when we've got technology that puts out graphics like this, you know the game is good looking.

ZOMG TEH PS4 AnD Xb0NE can nevaaa match TeH p0wRzz of da Mighty PC!!! /s

Bullshot my Ass, PC games with this specs don't need bullshots so consoles with PC like specs aren't going to be supesampled either.
DigitalRaptor  +   271d ago
This is the most gorgeous looking next-gen game so far and we've only seen a small, early slice. The detail, the animation, the art style - all fantastic. The game's not even out until early next year, so it can look even better.

I don't know why PC-only gamers feel the threat so much. If you have a custom built PC with all the latest hardware standards, of course you can run your games with more detail, at a higher resolution and with more effects. It doesn't change the fact that the majority of PC gamers have nowhere near these specs. And it doesn't change how gorgeous this game looks.

Idk why, it's just preference, but I like the look of the little 'electric bullets', if you will, that Cole could shoot whenever.

on inFamous 2 you could choose between electricity, ice or fire. This game might give other choice down the road too... Who knows.
