Definately, a game that sets a change from the common exclusives for the xbox also other new IP's like Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive and the upcoming black tusk studios game can't wait to get my hands on them

150,000 is nothing. Even late PS3 exclusives (Heavy Rain, Uncharted 3, Killzone 3, GT5, GT6, even Uncharted 2) are comparable.

It's ok for a launch game.
cee773  +   684d ago
Lmao the very first sonic game on ps360,sonic was 1 million polygons.
JokesOnYou  +   684d ago | Well said
Enemy no those ps3 games are not comparable
If you notice Racers always have higher poly counts because theres not alot to render up close compared to action games. UC2 had 37k to 45k for Chloe and Drake, KZ3 had 10k for characters and 45k for head closeups.

"For in-game characters, the PS3 game used three different LOD models (more polygons used the closer you are to the character in question), up to 10,000 polygons and 1024x1024 textures. Things have changed significantly for PlayStation 4 with seven LOD models and a maximum of 40,000 polygons and up to six 2048x2048 textures."

-Ryse Son of Rome has alot of tech running under the hood, which has clearly made it the most visually stunning next gen exclusive game.

@Enemy It's crazy how you're spreading false information yet more people agreed with you than disagreed!

Here's a shot from Killzone SF technical presentation.

It says Killzone 3 used 10,000 polygons for the highest level of detail character models. Killzone SF uses 40,000 for the highest LOD character models.

Cold fire i think those numbers are just for npcs not sure though as the article about it was a while ago, either way both games look fantastic.

Jodie from Beyond Two Souls is at 30,000 and looks awesome.

I will never understand how the few can come in here and say this doesn't look impressive or at least sound impressive. The game looks pretty solid so hopefully the game play is deep.
Ju  +   684d ago
This is the same for Ryse, Joke's, 150k is their "cut scene" model. All this really is, is they can seamlessly switch into a cutscene from game play (listen to Evan's speech). You will never play a 150K poly model - which is pretty apparent if you actually take the time and compare the opening sequence and compare the fidelity with the same model during game play. He also mentioned the joints in faces which are designed @ 260 - but can drop down to 10 (!) during game play - if you want to extrapolate from here what the LOD drops down...

150K is LOD0 - used for cut scenes. I would also think - since those roman guys all look the same - the same model is quite re-factored through geometry instancing.

It just underlines what you see in the game: High res on closeups - with no other detail around (usually covered in motion blur or DOF) and a quite simplistic environments in the distance.

Gray colour filter =/= bland

look at MGS4 and MGS3, they're filtered with grey and brown color, but they're all not bland
Autodidactdystopia  +   684d ago

This is different. Its seamless lod transition
just like in game,

Previous games and engines had a definite split between what could be seen in game and the cutscene assets.

you will play a 150k model if you want but you will have to do the usual run character against a wall and rotate the camera to look at his face, then you will get a seamless lod0

so in fact you can see the cutscene models at all times and in game.

your facts are straight but i think you missed that part.

difference being that in games like uncharted, no matter how close you got the camera to the players face in game and outside of a cutscene you would never get the lod0 cutscene model detail.

in ryse you can.

simple :)

@cold fire

And old wizard trailer tech demo used about 1 million for 1 character.

Lol. Lets not compare. If you go to shader it's also is not comparable
JokesOnYou  +   684d ago
ju watch the vid with Chris Evans Autodesk presentation go to 8:40 it begins with

"From day one we had this mantra in the company of play the cutscene"

"that rig, the chracter you see in the cutscene is the same character in gameplay if you zoom in anytime during combat its the same"

This gives you a quick comparsion specs that show how much Crytek are pushing with Ryse:

-hey spin it all you want but we have eyes and Crytek is putting it out there for all to see, no big talk while hiding the game, the vids, behind the scenes work vids, tech breakdown presentaions all speak for themselves, its not all about graphics though, a game could have superb visuals and suck or decent visuals and kick ass in the fun dept but to downplay what Crytek is doing here at least for now from a visual standpoint is fanboyish talk, spin, spin, spin, but it is what it is.

Ju  +   683d ago
a) there is no such thing as "seamless lod transition". This would require "vertex morphing" and "interpolation" which would be so expensive that the whole purpose of using LOD in the first place becomes irrelevant.

and b) "playing through cut scenes" means exactly that. The cut scene models are run by the game engine - sure an achievement - but it does not mean, "you play cut scenes", because you don't.

And Joke's..for someone who doesn't care about "console power superiority" you are trying quite hard to make the XBone something it isn't. The whole thing is MS/Crytek marketing at work. Why didn't they in fact publish the LODs for the model and tell which is used where? They have nothing to hide, don't they?

Crytek does this quite well with Ryse. It uses state of the art technology to squeeze from the XBone whatever they can. Quite an achievement, I give them that. Nothing what others haven't done before though.

timotim  +   684d ago
I agree with Fun that KZ: SF is going to average 7.x across the board, the GAMEPLAY just doesn't seem anything special at all and it doesn't look to bring anything even remotely new to the genre...but lets say you're right about Ryse...how did you come up with "garbage" for a game rated 7? Not every game needs to be 9-9.5 to be considered good. I think Ryse looks phenomenal graphically and they have only touched on elements of all the mechanics. If the general stuff pans out well, I see it being a great start to a promising series/franchise.
fpshooter2  +   684d ago
Why is it whenever a new KZ game comes out people like to say it brings nothing new to the genre? But they praise a game like C.o.D to high heaven.

KZ is an excellent series and Ive enjoyed every installment of it. Cant wait for shadow fall day one.

GodGinrai  +   684d ago
"Why is it whenever a new KZ game comes out people like to say it brings nothing new to the genre?"

To be fair KZ does not bring its own contribution to FPS as a genre. Its just eye candy with descent game mechanics. nothing more. you would call it an average game if it wasnt so pretty.
timotim  +   684d ago

Yet another KZ would have been perfect...if it was for the PS3. But this is next gen we're talking about here. You can't go into the next generation with the same exact game, bringing nothing new. Where's the 4-way co-op campaign? Where's the revolutionary new multiplayer modes? You have to actually make something next gen...other then graphics I don't see anything next gen at all with Shadow Fall...if that's the case, the game should be coming out for PS3 as well.

And for the record, I despise CoD. More of a Halo man myself.

My point is the fps genre is really saturated. I never see any complaints about any other shooters not being innovative. Why does this always seem to fall on the shoulders of GG. And how can anyone be so sure of what the game is doing without having played it.

To be honest i play a lot of shooters and very few of them bring anything new, but i still enjoyed them no less. I may be in the minority but i play kz because i honestly like the story and the characters. The fact thats its on the ps4 with awesome graphics and more open just makes it that much better for me.

@enemy heavy rain was a game for mini-pressing game and the character facial details wasn't as good as L.A noire and uncharted 3 looks really good but this thing is better , and how do you compare a racing game to a action game ??!!
Blackdeath_663  +   684d ago
people discussing polygon counts are silly it may have been relevent a few years back during ps1 and ps2 days but now its completely irrelevant because of diminishing returns. 150,000 polygons will look exactly the same as 200,000polygons as this pic explains http://a.yfrog.com/img618/8...
trywizardo  +   684d ago
@blackdeath_663 actually this pic shows the importance of the polygons look at 6000 then 60000 there are a huge difference between them and that happens to 150,000 polygons ^_^
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   683d ago
No, the image doesn't. Yes the 60,000 ver. does look a tad better. But that's 60,000, and it's already extremely smooth. You can't get much better than that in an easy to notice way. If anything, I think developers should work on collision and such more. Lara Croft's hair going through her neck with tressFX on is a ideal example of the lack of advancement in collision.

30fps for an action game is never a good thing. There is a 60fps standard for action games. Takes Ninja Gaiden, or Devil May Cry 3 , even Metal Gear Rising. What made them great games? Not story, that's for sure. But definitely the absurdly fast reactionary based gameplay which you can only really do at 60fps.

This game was announced at E3 2010 as a current gen game and, up until 4 months ago, was a Kinect only game before moving to the Xbox One. Crytek have not made a good game since the original Far Cry released in 2003.

Hey it's true Crytek has always been a mediocre developer no matter what platform they are developing for.

All they are famous for is their arrogant CEO and pretty graphics.

Don't expect much from Ryse as it's changed direction quite a few times. Wasn't it meant to be a kinect game for current gen console?

Now its a next gen game without kinect but with added QTEs.
FamilyGuy  +   684d ago
Ryse looks like trash to me, I really don't understand the hype.
It doesn't look all that great, the main character may be high in triangles but it's a really bland looking character model. He's extremely plain looking.
The movements all look scripted likes it's on rails. Sightseeing with no off-the-path venturing.
The fighting is nothing but slowed down quick time events. It wants to look like 300 and Sparticus during the attack sequences but with it slowing down during those button press moments it loses a lot of tension compared to something like Heavy Rain where you had to frantically do the quick time events during high tension scenes.
On top of all that it looks like it's gonna be a short game, like 9 hours or less. I can't justify/explain this one, it just gives me that vibe.

Console preferences aside, I just don't understand the excitement. The theme is cool, I like Roman Empire dated stuff but this just doesn't look fun. It looks like it's still meant to be a Kinect game.

I think the game looks really good with deep visuals and hopefully game play. This game is also going for that Rome vibe and doing a good job at it. Why anybody would compare it to Heavy rain is beyond me and just shows some people simply have lower expectations. It was never described exactly what type of game Ryse was intended to be but the removal of Kinect was definitely a good choice and paid off. Day one with my XBO console. I could careless about the competition because the games I prefer are all coming to the console of my choice.

They won't need polygons for the main character, it is a fps.

So really there is 40k polygons for npc's, I'd wager that there is that or more in the npc's from Ryse too.

And as for the tech demo that has 1 million polygons I think it goes without saying that we all know we won't see graphics like that for a very long time or even not at all.
HammadTheBeast  +   684d ago
The Killzone thing was a joke.... keep it classy N4G.

However, GT5 has cars with 500 k poly counts. In the early PS3 game LAIR, the rider and it's dragon had 150 k polygons.

starchild  +   684d ago

In guerrilla's presentation they never said the 40,000 polygons were for NPC background characters. I've looked at the slides myself.

Here is what Digital Foundry said about it:

"For in-game characters, the PS3 game used three different LOD models (more polygons used the closer you are to the character in question), up to 10,000 polygons and 1024x1024 textures. Things have changed significantly for PlayStation 4 with seven LOD models and a maximum of 40,000 polygons and up to six 2048x2048 textures."

Nothing about it only being used for background NPCs. Even if the main character does use more polygons, I seriously doubt that it will be significantly more that the other characters. Maybe around 60,000.

Yeah, ~150k @ LOD0. 260 joints in the face - in the close up. And goes down to 10 (!). So, what we knew before. LOD0 is really only used for cut scenes (according to Evans). You'd probably never see that while playing the game.

I'm sure Naughty Dog will put out something amazing because they are one of the most talented and skillful developers around.

That said, this Naughty Dog job listing doesn't mean that in-game models will be one million polygons because characters are always modeled at a higher polygon count in a modeling program and reduced for use in-engine.

Oh really...cause a job listing says a lot right? Here's a further explanation.


"But there’s more to it than meets the eye, as we found out when we caught up with 3D World’s technical editor Rob Redman: “The PS3 almost definitely couldn’t handle [million-poly models], especially not while running lights, normal mapping, anti-aliasing and the geometry for other characters and environments.”

“It just doesn’t have the memory available. Or the graphics processing power,” Rob elaborates. But that isn’t as clear an indication of a PS4 project as is seems, as Rob explains: “almost every game character these days starts of as a high resolution model with tens of millions of polygons.”

“These are then baked into a set of texture files, either displacement or normal maps, that give the lower res model the look of the fully detailed.”

So just because someone’s working on creating million-poly models, that doesn’t neccessarily mean they’ll show up in the game in such high detail. Perhaps Naughty Dog were already in million-poly territory with Uncharted 3 before scaling it down? Let’s take a look at the development shots from a little behind-the-scenes blog Naughty Dog posted:

Nice try though Mounce
porkChop  +   684d ago
Did you bother reading the article Mounce posted? You're talking about Naughty Dog on PS3, whereas the article was talking about Naughty Dog on PS4. Whether 1m poly models were possible on PS3 is completely irrelevant here.

In the quote Rob says-"Almost every game character these days starts off as a high res model with tens of millions of polygons. These are then baked into a set of texture files, either displacement or normal maps, that give the lower res model the look pf the fully detailed."

Then it ends with-So just because someone’s working on creating million-poly models, that doesn’t neccessarily mean they’ll show up in the game in such high detail. Perhaps Naughty Dog were already in million-poly territory with Uncharted 3 before scaling it down?

Should I break it down more? Just because they are creating million poly figures, doesn't mean they'll show up in game at a million polys. Crysis 3 isn't even pushing a million in game polys...stop dreaming.

I don't care if it was posted last year. The most demanding PC games out there don't push a million polygons. PS4 won't be either...so a tech demo or a job listing doesn't change the fact that the PS4 won't be pushing million poly in game characters...period.

About the PS3 bit- it's there for you to read. Characters start off at high poly counts...learn to read and not see what you want to see.

PS4 WILL NOT BE PUSHING MILLION POLY CHARACTERS. It's not even Sony's fault for the way numb skulls think about this machine. Shame...

Game not made or shown off.. this article holds 0 evidence for this aside from a job listing? dude that oculd just be for cinematics or a demo for their game..

creating million poly models is easy but getting them to render and be dynamic in a real time environment wont be possible..
corvusmd  +   684d ago
Be careful with this one...it's very vague, it could be just a tech demo or something of that sort. Not to mention that as we see Ryse is a game that is incorporating destruction and such...if you don't do that to the level that Crytek did, then you can free things up to make higher poly-counts. These characters are that high poly count in game...not cutscene only. However, more important than all of this...Ryse at 150k looks amazing, wasting time to create a 1 mil poly count character at this point may end up being a waste of time/resources and go unnoticed
Tontus  +   684d ago
Do you not understand game development? In every single game you play artists create the characters in Zbrush using millions of polygons and then convert all the displacement into normal maps which uses a tiny fraction of the amount of polygons used to originally create it but with a comparable result. The characters that you play as in Naughty Dogs new game will not have 1,000,000 polygons in-game, don't be so naive with your 'in Naughty Dog we trust' nonsense.

Ryse is an incredible looking game, people should stop talking about polygons when they don't even understand what they're talking about and just focus on what you can actually see.

I find it hilarious that you don't talk about how it looks on its own, but rather compare it to your favoured console exclusives. It's like, can't you give credit where credit is due?

Say you compare two 10/10 movies. You would be the one that is like "Well movie one has this and looks better than movie two. Movie two is crap compared to movie one"
Even though both are 10/10 movies, you try to belittle one and make it look like trash by judging it *relative* to your favoured movie.

Dark Sorcerer isn't a game. It's a tech demo. The tech demo was pushing that. No physics, no character interaction, a small room. No sunlight...it was a tech demo.
HammadTheBeast  +   684d ago
There was lighting, particle effects (millions), the whole set piece going on, the interaction between the character models, and physics for the hair and clothing on the sorcerer/imp.
corvusmd  +   684d ago
True it was all prescripted, poly counts in tech demos are ALWAYS tons higher. Pulling the Dark Sorcerer tech demo excuse out just looks scared and desperate. If your thing is watching a tech demo over and over that's great, but I prefer games that I can play.
claterz  +   684d ago
Actually, Quantic Dream used lower polygon counts for "the casting" tech demo for heavy rain. Also there was a difference of 10,000 polygons between the "Kara" tech demo and the characters in Beyond. There's quite a significant difference visually between their tech demos and the final game.

Obviously most tech demos don't represent actual gameplay, but QD have managed to improve upon them in their past two games. I guess that could be due to the nature of their games but that's besides the point. I just don't think we should rule out the possibility of them doing the same thing again by matching/improving upon the sorcerer demo.

So what's the NPC poly count then? Main characters always use substantially more polygons than world NPCs. Seeing how KZ4 is an FPS it does not need to spend anything on its main character. How detailed is the world, light engine etc comparing the two? See you're being stupid.

ziggurcat  +   683d ago
the fact of the matter is that the game they showed at E3 was in its *ALPHA* stage, not pre-alpha.

a pre-alpha game is in its early stage of development (which can be anywhere from 1 month - 6 months depending on milestone they've set for themselves), it doesn't have all of its assets in place, it's very unstable (i.e. it crashes if you look at it the wrong way), etc...

you people clicking disagree clearly haven't worked in QA before. i worked in video game QA for several years, so frigid is wrong in stating that the game shown at E3 was pre-alpha.

frigid is correct, though, that the game will be in its beta stage once gamescom rolls around.

I agree with you 100%.

I still know what happened since I was on this site when it happened.It turned to graphics when x360 fanboys and the media trashed PS3. They said x360 is more powerfull and trashed CELL using FEAR and other first wave multiplats as proof. I think it was so silly for them to do it and that's why people are still stuck on graphics. Propaganda can be seen as quite a negative thing.

It all started after the announcement of PS3. MS and it's fans talked trash about Xbox being more powerful which upset the Sony fanboys who claimed Xbox sucked and wouldn't be around long. At first graphics didn't matter but PS3 went for graphics and all of a sudden it mattered. Now Sony and it's fans have some type of strange logic where they think graphics are everything and they have to always be better then XBO. The truth is both consoles have there strong points but MS is going for more than just pushing the message of "hey we have the strongest console" bull crap.
