PS4's Deep Down: Debut Gameplay Vs Revealed Gameplay Comparison - Not Quite As Good?

PS4 Exclusive Deep Down blew everyone's socks off with its Debut Gameplay, but with the recent reveal of more Gameplay we feel the new gameplay doesn't quite match. Heres the comparison. (Deep Down, PS4)

Didn't we know the original, as you put it gameplay, video was a CGI video. I didn't think it was gameplay as it was never announced as such. It was just a typical CGI trailer (I dislike how it is such a common practice. AC series does it all the time)

Latest Gameplay had amzing graphics
So i dont know where this article is coming from.

Literally non hardcore gaming media blew up.

It even made top list on reddit which never really cares about graphics.

it's more like comparing real-time cute scene to a gameply (not cgi)
take a look at ND games all cute scene are in game-engine not CGI the deep down debut was a cute scene running in game engine and the fire effect is almost the same BTW

bottom line whom ever write this has no clue maybe next time u can compare between agni's philosophy demo and Final fantasy XV

^^ Agree 100 percent.

Running in game cut scene real time. Is not same as CGI.

If you want real deceit, look at X1 BF4 at E3. Or Ryse at E3. Every real game play seen was never good as the E3 gameplay.

Well, being as though the recent gameplay has the smoothest physics and best graphics of any console game (ever) I don't think anyone will be complaining.

Latest Gameplay had amazing graphics.

Lol, if you want to laugh, just look at the article, because it IS the same game play footage, it's just the screen shot's resolution is not quite on par, but that's it.
Here, look: http://n4g.com/news/1372084...

Nah, if you REALLY want this kind of Article, compare the original Ryse E3 demo VS latest gameplay footage.

The E3 one looked very much next-gen high end graphics, but the new one just looks current gen, like a glorified Wii U game in comparison.

Note at the bottom of the screen: "Not actual gameplay" on the first intro.

So you 'believe it was mentioned somewhere' that it was gameplay after doing a 'gameplay comparison' with no sources about that in your article? That's some serious journalism there, great in-depth research (NOT).

It's a target render with a serious amount of time left in production, this game will look astonishing on release.

FamilyGuy  +   440d ago
Black0o and GameNameFsme have it right

The original debut trailer was all "IN-ENGINE", running on "Real PS4 hardware" http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The models used were definitely higher in polygons but none of it was CGI. It was a situation similar to the cut-scenes in Uncharted.

The actual in-game footage still look amazing, the link they posted still doesn't do it justice.
Watch the 720p 60fps gamersyde videos to see how good it really looks. http://n4g.com/news/1357589... They aren't very exciting like the dragon gameplay demo but they do a great job showing off how amazing the lighting and dungeon really look, how smooth the character animations are and how accurate the hit detection is.

@iamnsuperman actually it was stated by the developer, and on the trailer if I'm not mistaken, that it was all in-engine. The later gameplay vids that were revealed have the exact same graphics anyway, the only difference being that the original "cg" trailer as you called it, had more cinematic animations and camera work

This website has more sponsor shipped ads than actual article depth, story, quality.

It's come to this blogisphered world we live in; were people can write, publish, toss some screen grabs of high res production shots vs half arsed pixelated, crappy off screen grabs from some gaming convention. This is to conjure some story stating teh graphics are worse than that were promised.

Lets wait and see until the dam games start rolling out. Until then, they are not finalized unless stated otherwise.

Well that's how I feel about it.

Blaze, yes is a F2P game. But when was announced that it will be a F2P game? A month ago, right. Off course many believed that graphics in first demo will be in final game until F2P announcement.

Tell me, what is the release date of the game? Some rumour said that the release date is somewhere in late 2014.

This game look pretty good for a F2P game and for a really early stage of development.

DigitalRaptor  +   440d ago
The fact remains is that it IS in-engine, tech-demo gameplay, not CG. The original trailer contains gameplay artifacts and this was before anyone could have guessed it was an online game. So NO- no one's blind for being reasonable, and no-one's blinder than those thinking the latest Deep Down footage we've seen looks worse than Ryse.

Ryse only looks impressive when things are slowed down, control is taken away and you see the animations close-up. In fact, if Ryse looks so much better than Deep Down, how does that make the original trailer shown a graphical impossibility, when it's running on more powerful hardware?

And nope, this is nothing like Killzone 2 situation at all.

Or maybe it is not more powerful machine? Recently there were articles about ps4 having R290 gpu inside...which is quite funny when console is only using 100wats while XO use more double of that when really stressed. MS still didnt come out with their GPU specs so I'll hold my judgement.

Well BallsEye. Of course you will hold your judgement, cause you have nothing else working in your favour and this entire coming generation will be spelling it out to you a day at a time. It's delusion here on out for you guys.

The trailer looks closer to a combination of CGI and real actors. Then to completely deceive the viewer, they throw in a few seconds with the weapon selection HUD. Those few seconds were clearly showing gameplay which looks far better than the latest gameplay videos out there.

please, take off the blinders and just accept the fact that you got duped.

"please, take off the blinders and just accept the fact that you got duped."

I clearly wasn't duped as I thought it was CGI. Some of the comment here are telling me it is in game engine (which I might have gotten wrong) but when I first say this I thought CGI because no-one said gameplay. So I could have I been duped (unless you are talking about me being duped into thinking it was CGI)

Initially we got a trailer setting the theme of the game. Then we got an early build setting the character of the gameplay. The latest build of the gameplay (though not on par with the trailer) is a big improvement on early gameplay & I'm expecting this to be improved & developed even more.

So Deep Down running on a consumer PS4 looks NO where as good as what we were seeing in September?

I love watching Sony fanboys change their tune. YOU guys should be Politicians. Tha back pedaling, the damage control, the Spin, you guys got it down pat.

But just in case you guys somehow Forgot how you bragging about Deep Down i got a link.


It's funny reading what you guys said in September versus the damage control of today.

Remember Sony fanboys.....It's All about the GAMEPLAY not TEH GRAFICKS, well that's what you always tell me.

I'm actually looking forward to Deep Down as it seems like a Great Dungeon Crawler with nice gameplay.

Awesome gameplay Runs at 1080p 60fps And still looks awesome with Amazing fire effects and physics to match. what more do you want from this game its still has the wow factor it had in february and not to mention its free and will be in beta mode for PS4.

Speaking of changing tunes xbox fans are known for the same thing http://n4g.com/news/1354297... its funny how you guys point out one group of fans when the others do it too. i find it stupid not to mention xbox fans kept saying Deep Down is coming to xone then hated the game instantly when they learned its a PS4 exclusive.

same thing could be said about Titanfall and PS4 fanboys. They loved Titanfall until it became a PC XB1 Exclusive.

I can go all day too Remember MGS when Xbox fans would bash it every time now that its on their console all i hear is i can't wait to play it -_-.
Insomniac i remember xbox fans hating insomniac and their games but now that they're making Sunset overdrive all i see from xbox fans is i can't wait to see Sunset overdrive -_-.

Tech Demo VS Gameplay, anyone expecting an early in the generation game to look like it's tech demo is pretty ignorant. That being said it still looks amazing, honestly all the tech is there, things are just far more modular IE less complex in design. The dragon and the fire look pretty much the same though, as does the lighting and shaders

Debut was on a PC, so of course the footage on the new console isn't going to match. It's still months, maybe even a year before it's release and is probably not optimized at all.

However, I never expected this game to match the reveal trailer. It looked to good, even for PC games. It was the most life-like thing I've seen in gaming. Gave me massive goosebumps when I first saw it.

bsmith61  +   440d ago
That original trailer wasn't even gameplay. Sony did the same stuff back at e3 2005, they made a pre-rendered trailer with far better visual effects than the final product. I can't even fathom why anyone would think that original trailer was real gameplay, everything looked pre-rendered and the "HUD" they put in looked completely fake as well. The real gameplay looked extremely smooth and well polished, but there are no consoles, let alone PC's, that can play a game as detailed as the original trailer was, at a steady framerate (well maybe with 4 290x's in crossfire). Nobody should be surprised by this, Sony has done this before.

I'll still buy this when it comes out, regardless.

Send this to Capcom... not Sony. I guess they want to make this another Killzone 2 situation. In the end, I feel that Guerrilla Games Delivered!

The true advance of the next gen doesn't come from GPU muscle -- it comes from having 8 GB of RAM.

Ironically, its the CPU that really needs the extra memory to make GAMEPLAY shine. Huge,open worlds. Minimal loading times. Brilliant AI. This is all in the CPU domain, and all aided by the large amounts of available memory.

You're just not gonna see CGI-grade graphics on anything less than a multi-high-end GPU setup, and even then, probably not outside of a fixed demo. In other words, not in console games, and not in PC games either, because not many gamers actually even own a pair (or more) HD 7970s, GTX 780s, or Titans.

As an example, those UE4 demos (Samaritan, Elemental) were shown on paired GTX 680s, with absolutely NO flexibility outside what was shown in the demo. That has a HUGE impact on performance. Demo != Game.. never. Demos are all false-fronts, and no-AI, no dynamic animations, no extra resources loaded, etc. They are high-performance puppet shows, and no more.

graphics look just as good as the febuary demo, the febuary demo was mostly cutscenes

people are so dumb i swear the first vid was using camera angles that were unplayable just to make the game look really good it still does look the same just without a cinematic camera.
