Lol Crytek the "King of Graphics"? Sure maybe on PC, but on consoles their games always under deliver. Games like Halo 4, Uncharted 3/Last of Us and God of War III all look much better (and play better) than something like Crysis 3 on consoles.

Why is it that doctored screenshots, which everyone does, are such an issue when MS does it, but when Sony puts out trailers using a target render it's fair game?
Gamingcapacity  +   718d ago
To me the original looks loads better, not faded and less blurry.

Could be a simple case of a completely new screenshot that is taken from an updated version of the game. Might be that they had to reduce the quality a little bit to ge it running smoothly with the provided X1 specs.

@Bessy - It wasn't fair game because they took a lot of bad press for it.

@ xHeaVyx -
Thats not the case at all - I have both consoles on Pre-order ,
My comment about Driveclub relates to a valid point ... Why would I care about being able to view star constalations in a driving game - thats not bashing anyone its just my opinion.

I was at Gamescom and played/saw Driveclub , Ryse and Forza 5 running on actual ps4 and x1 hardware and I can assure you that forza 5 looks and runs better than driveclub does and driveclub maybe 1080p but it runs nowhere near 60fps.

The point i was making was if the PS4 really is that much more powerful than X1 you couldn't see it from the games I saw.

You can argue all You want but what i saw was what i saw and if a PS4 'exclusive' is not making good use of the power on offer then maybe the games not all that good..... just a thought

You however are in the comments section of every X1 article slating the machine and/or its games if you really don't like the machine so much just stay away don't buy one , none of your opinions are based on known facts just 'what you've heard' or 'read' from anoynomous sources on N4G.

The rumours may well turn out to be true but right now you're not offering Your opinion you're ramming it down peoples throats

I worked for a gaming magazine (among other magazines), and pretty much every screenshot gets a little tweak/boost in some settings to make it pop-out a bit more, or whatever.

No biggie.

Ryse doesn't look appealing to me though. Not a big fan of QTE-games. I also know nothing about the main character(?) or story or whatever, so I'll just see how it will turn out, but I kinda expect it to score in the high 70's, low 80's.
Silly gameAr  +   718d ago

Could be because xbox fans would say Ryse was the best looking game they've ever seen on any console evar?

-So why the article? Hell I looked and looked cant really tell what their talking about, ...you could switch those pics and nobody could tell. Lately pixelenemy has made some very poor news with sensational headlines based on essentially nothing.

Seriously? We all seen the game running so why the F you guys even talk about screenshots? Game is PLAYABLE on XO it was there at PAX and it will be there october 4. It's also playable on Beta hardware shown in youtube leaked videos. Why the fuss about screenshots when the game already is up and running? Also the so called "original picture" is not completely original at all. Just for the sake of the article quality in Original one was downed awfuly just to make it look 480p resolution. Ryse runs native 1080p and anyone who believe this crap with screenshots is just an idiot

this is the original screenshot without the stripes removed just as in article but in normal quality


We could be also looking in Second Son screenshots where half of it got Anti Aliasing and other half doesnt. Obvious photoshop.

@Heavy you stated yourself your are a fanboy.

You claim that you come with facts, you have come through sometimes, but why is that somebody come with facts in regards to the PS (that's negative) they're trolls and a automatic fanboy?

What about logic?

Instead of saying "So much for Crytek being the "kings of graphics" You would click on the article and clearly see the guy is DESPERATELY nitpicking to the point he needs to magnify the picture to justify his claim. I see a small difference but to an average gamer they would barely even unless they truly looked at it.

The fanboy part about is you don't use logic. And when you do, you use logic that benefits your inner fanboy instead of real and sensible logic like you failed to do here. Its not all about "facts".

Like I said you failed because you just just read the headline and said the first thing that came into your fanboy mind. Instead of looking as the picture and coming up with sensible logic that's super easy to dismember.

This isn't even news and yet you gladly ran with the headline. Facts and logic are strong but what's facts if you have no logic, very little logic, or lopsided logic that benefits you and the rest of the fanboy crowd.

Considering this is N4G I rather use logic than facts. And boy do people hate it.

the problem here is that the xbox fans would be jumping all over this if it was a PS4 title (hell they were saying driveclub looked like a N64 game based on a video that had been compressed countless times over), but since it's their beloved ryse, we're nitpicking when it's quite obvious between the two screenshots that there's a difference in lighting/shadow detail? or the same people nitpicking over a few palm tree leaves in GTA V?

Let's be honest here, the photoshop is pretty obvious in that shot but why wouldn't they photoshop it? Those straps are clipping pretty bad and they wanted to use the shot for the site so touching it up isn't really a big deal. I can't imagine any game company posting a shot that clearly shows a big imperfection like that on their website.

It probably would've been a better idea to just take a shot where the straps weren't clipping but I guess photoshopping was easier.

I don't see the problem in the Infamous shot you trolls are posting. I see ailasing on the tail light of one car and I don't see Sony trying to hide it. What is it about that shot that makes it a "bullshot"/ photoshopped?

The game graphics look top notch and im pretty sure when xbox owners are playing it and fighting people they arent going to notice something so miniscule when they are too busy stabbing people in the neck.

I'd say the recent news about the resolution (upscaling to 1080p instead of native) is a bigger deal than this.

Though photoshopping screenshots isn't cool, it may turn out that the added detail was something they planned to have in there by launch.

Either way it won't impact the fun factor, and Ryse has always looked fun to me. I just never agreed that it was the best looking early next gen title around.
sonarus  +   717d ago
The art style in ryse is what sucks if you ask me. The graphics are fine, the gameplay looks shit though. Forget about the qte's the combat just lacks a certain fluidity that makes the overall game seem lame. Thats just my opinion though this is a launch titles so sure many people will pretend its the best game ever but in a few yrs we will look back and most of us will acknowledge the truth.

This game reminds me of Lair for ps3

Forza 5 however exceeded expectations and is now the #1 for me on X1.
robotgargoyle  +   718d ago
I was curious about RYSE. I kept thinking that it couldn't he as bad as people were making it out to be.

I still haven't played, but initial reports are not promising. Graphics look good, gameplay does not look the least bit entertaining.

Forza 5 looks fantastic. To me- it is the only "must have" exclusive launch title for xb1. In a sea of current gen ports, options kinda seem scarce. If you are getting a PS4, it looks like Killzone:Shadow Fal is your game of choice. If don't like racing games, your're probably not getting Forza, so RYSE needs to be a successful title. I still remain skeptical.

Ever? That's a bit of a stretch.

But if people only play consoles, chuck steak, while still being steak, will seem like filet mignon.

But then again I remember people saying certain 360/PS3 games had better graphics than PC games, only to then see One/PS4 games that were 'the best eva' even though they still don't bypass what was done years earlier on PC. People see what they want to see. You still actually have people saying 30 FPS is ok and they can't tell the difference. No, it isn't OK.

Next gen will have some really nice looking games and tons of fun to be had. But remember if you make a claim like that people playing at a kiosk that 'none of those people are disputing that this is one of the best looking games ever made' then you're supposed to back it up.

Looks like to me it is a game with DECENT graphics and a bunch of QTE's. If that floats people's boat then GREAT.

I also wouldn't be surprised that some people played a PC version that looks superior running on a PC meant to be representative of an Xbox One.

Hard to believe? It's pretty obvious that the clipping on the strap and the armor was photoshopped away. And it really doesn't have much to do with whether Crytek can produce "great graphics," it's just a minor modeling error that should be easy to fix.

I don't really have a problem with "bullshots" that adjust contrast or saturation or whatever, but the clone tool should *never* enter the equation.

On a side note, the modeling and texture work on the NPC is *way* below the quality of the main character.

Its not just the things pointed out in the article. There's a lot more 'touching up' going on. Look at the skin-tone on the arms, the shadows under the helmet are reduced (to show more clarity), various coloured patches are minimised and altered.

Not really.

The Neogaf thread had a much better and bigger image.

It is DEFINITELY a noticeable difference. (but then again some people can't tell last gen from this gen...so if people are that or are towards that end of the spectrum...then perhaps they'll miss it too).

But for the average gamer they are going to notice a big difference.

Whatever site used those two photos as comparisons should be ashamed of using low res photos to make a comparison. This way both look awfully similar.

When you see the better quality images of those two images, you'll see one that looks noticeably worse.

Im starting to wonder if any of these so called fan boys ever play games esp the Sony ones as they seem to be commenting on here 24 7 about how much better the ps4 is over the one. Great we get the message the ps4 is going to be more powerful now as a gamer I want to play games and I want to play games like halo, forza Mario, dk, pokemon, Zelda, Alan wake ect. Now you see it really dose not matter how great the ps4 is or how well it sells those games not on the pa4. Just like you want to play kz, driver club Ect those games are only on the ps4 so you need a ps4 to play them.

You see how simple that is now what you need to do is turn off your pc turn on your tv pickup the controller of the console you like to play on the most and then press the power button on the controller and play the games you like to play and let everyone else do the same thing.

See it really is that simple and it also makes this site a better place for people who want to read games news rather than rants on who's dad is the biggest.

Also it isnt just this website. People keep saying that but for the last few years most well known websites have become Pro Sony and not due to fanboy reason but because they just like what Sony is doing better. Sites like Neogaf have a larger population of Pro Sony as well.

Also the hate isnt nuts, i can give you at least 5 good reasons why im not pro Micro. but that's neither hear, nor there. I wont knock someone for liking their exclusives.

Thats another point and a good one. Pro xbox people complain that everything is pro sony. Never once acknowledging the fact that maybe more people like sony playstation and prefer playstation. Its not the same people everywhere after a while you just have to acknowledge this as not a coincidence and maybe a little bit of fact.

Stop crying fowl poor me stick up for yourself state your case and carry on a conversation. The victim card is getting really old.

this is getting really ridiculous...so the media and gamers who actually have seen it running on the hardware and played the game at events and were impressed with the graphis are all liars?....its sad to see people bring up such just to get attention.
ziggurcat  +   717d ago
actually, gribble, the difference in lighting is significant without having to press your nose up to the screen.

the original image is definitely warmer, and has deeper shadow depth.

Photoshopping screenshots should really be considered misleading consumers and should be highly illegal. Having said that we've seen Ryse in motion and unless every frame of that video was individually photoshopped it looks pretty damn good. I'm not personally expecting it to play all that well given what I've seen and the studio's past games but you have to admit it looks pretty damn pretty.

Lol.. If only you knew what fast food restaurants did to the food in their advertising..
ShwankyShpanky  +   718d ago
I don't think anyone said the game doesn't look good, but the most egregious edit on the image was the removal of visible clipping, and I've seen clipping issues in a few of the vids/screens for Ryse as well.
BigShotSmoov007  +   718d ago
Are we serious now? It's come down to this to try and take away from a game? Gaming websites have stooped to this level now? Come on, the game isn't out, probably still being polished and finished and it's 2 months away from being released. This is just silly now, this is why I read less and less gaming websites now cause things like this.
Regis  +   718d ago
The guy who wrote the article firmly states that he will still get the game and all this doesn't bother him but the clipping and well its an opinion article.
Belking  +   718d ago
lol...this is so bogus. people who have actually seen and played the game says it looks awesome......and take any thing coming from neogaf with a grain of salt.

The ext story will be Forza may not look as good as it seems....lol Come on N4G...show some class for once.

Take anything from Neogaf "with a grain of salt" The same Gaf that has devs and insiders posting constantly in their forums? The same Neogaf that was 99% right about Ps4 and Xbone specs, DRM, games and started the no DRM petition? lol Let me guess take what they say with a grain of salt because they havent been pro Microsoft for awhile, gtfo with that bs.
ShwankyShpanky  +   718d ago
I just think junk like "take any thing coming from neogaf with a grain of salt" is sad because it's not like the images are sourced from GAF. Anybody can look at the actual original shot and the image on Xbox.com see that it has been shopped. I can see with my own eyes... GAF doesn't enter into it.
AKR  +   717d ago
Although I do agree with your statement about GAF being highly accurate with their intel ~ it seems like N4G just went into overdrive Sony butt-kissing mode, and now - if it isn't good news about the PS4 (or anything PS related) - 95% of will either ignore it, or if it's bad news about something Nintendo or Microsoft related, they'll pounce and start firing the trolling rifles.

Talk about nit-picking

Crytek - Thats enough to raise red flags. Gameplay is obviously going to be average and boring

Not a big deal. I played it and it looks gorgeous. The gameplay is the concern here, but I hope they fix most of those issues before release.

Still...this is stupid. Very good graphics.

Why do they need to?? It looks good already IMO ---> http://assets.crytek.com/as...

Download it to watch.
Animal Mutha 76  +   718d ago
I've only watched videos. As for touching up screenshots its not unusual for publishers to pass the AA filter over images that are used online or on boxes.

Its not right but as GryestOfBluSkies says above its common practice so this game shouldn't be singled out.
Convas  +   718d ago
Taken straight from NeoGAF. Well done PixelEnemy. We have yet another (idiotic) reason to make fun Ryse!

Story quality: WTF x 100
Dlacy13g  +   718d ago
PixelEnemy cherry pick NeoGaf often. They don't come up with a vast majority of what they report...just stuff they see on NeoGaf and the like.
Dlacy13g  +   718d ago
Dear lord... this article looks desperate to make a controversy if they are trying to make a big deal out of varying shades of grey. Now if it was 50 shades of grey maybe they are on to something but as is...this is just stupid trolling.
Regis  +   718d ago
Literally the best comment I have seen yet. On the 50 shades of grey thing.
BLow  +   718d ago
I know that people want to shit on everything Xbox but this is getting out of hand. Really??? I actually think the original looks better. I just need to ask who in their right mind is going to pause the game on put a microscope on the TV to find these little flaws. If your one of those people then I feel sorry for you...Man, next gen is starting to look uglier by the minute. This is fanboyism to the extreme....WOW
hankmoody  +   718d ago
This is the equivalent of kicking a guy while he's lying on the ground after he's been beaten unconscious by an angry mob. This is just ridiculous already.

The need to prove one system as being better than the other, I mean I get it but it's just getting out of hand already. Really hoping the Xbox One proves everyone wrong and this nonsense stops already. As far as I'm concerned, the PS4 hasn't shown a damn thing to make anyone that excited over it.
ZHZ90  +   717d ago
"the PS4 hasn't shown a damn thing to make anyone that excited over it."

Yeah because no one wants KZ:SF, Infamous:SS, Order and Deep Down. /sarcasm

To you nothing exciting just to you and people like you, there already are lots of people already excited about PS4.

You need to stop being deniel just for sake of Xbone.

So...this is what the console wars have come too? It's a sad time for gamers. Fanboys are probably loving it though, but to the ones who actually PLAY the games, we're like :/

The game play videos I have seen look really nice. It kind of discredits people trying to act as if they are hiding something. Besides what game company doesn't do this??

I've been able to play it and think it looks amazing. One of the best looking playable games at PAX znc even that footage was labelled Alpha. I was sold after playing it and have it ordered for launch day now.

im sorry i know were all entitled to our own opinion but judging from the videos ive seen the game isnt really nothing special.cant judge the game play but from what im hearing its pretty clunky

Eh. I think people are Nitpicking. When the game arrives, play it and make your determination. Otherwise, I think this story is for hits.

Where did those straps come from anyway? they are nowhere to be found in the gameplay scene 1:43 - 1:57.

Lets compare the helghast armor from E3 demo and the one from the reveal demo, no jaggies in reveal and tons of jaggies in e3 demo without even zooming in.
