They do. The 720p version just has more jaggies and worse shadows/textures.

it seems like ps3 will be able to play most of multiplat games on next gen consoles and get the same content but with just lower setting and lower framerate

it's not ps2 to ps3 this time

Salooh1522d ago (Edited 1522d ago )

It could have been a great step if they focused on next gen but this time they saw an opportunity to get more money so they chose money over something stunning ..

Sadly , this is one of the reasons why the new consoles wasn't exciting. inFAMOUS second son will be a great start :P .

AngelicIceDiamond1522d ago

Well 720P doesn't look that bad though. It isn't that jaggie.

This is the editors disclaimer: "Note: the shot at the top of the post is just an artistic rendition to showcase the concept, and it’s not representative of the actual looks of the game."

I had a feeling it wasn't real 720p. 720p realistically doesn't look that bad.

The game looks distinctly previous generation to me, ported onto the new consoles. That's not to say bad. It looks superb. That is just to say this game's roots are without doubt in the PS3/360 era.

It seems fairly obvious this game was designed for PS3/360, and then the decision was made to make enhanced versions for Xbox One/PS4.

This is no bad thing I suppose, GTA5 could easily do the same sort of thing if Rockstar are working on next gen versions.

Mega241522d ago

Be honest, do you really think that 360/ps3 can process this game at 1080p with AA and sharper shadows?, I was even amazed that its even releasing for last gen.

Panthers1522d ago

@Ezz this is just the transitional period. Soon the games will have much larger gaps and PS4 games wont appear on PS3. Right now the PS3s install base is still too big to ignore compared to the PS4

minimur121522d ago

when people say jaggies, do they mean jaggedness or lag?

DC7771522d ago

Things like this will keep people from buying new consoles but game companies know they can make that money.

abstractel1521d ago (Edited 1521d ago )

@Ezz2031 That's quite the ignorant comment, coming from someone who is working in the field and has for a long time. New powerful hardware always open up more possibilities that simply weren't possible on last gen. That goes for gameplay too. Cross-gen titles aren't going to show this, they are going to show mostly just graphic changes and in some cases FPS improvements but not core game design changes.

The problem is that it's easy to show improvement in graphics, but trickier to show what gameplay changes are now possible that weren't possible before. But good game designers will be able to make much better, and more varied games, the more power they get. And this new gen is far from the end of the line.

Skip_Bayless1521d ago

They should reconsider and not make last gen ports. It takes away from the appeal of the game.

They do. It's pretty obvious that the last gen versions would be 720p though. I don't think anyone was expecting 1080p native for last gen.

1080p @ 60fps for next gen? Nice.

Abriael1522d ago

Yep, 1080/60 is confirmed on both PS4/One afaik.

ThePope1522d ago

If not native, it will be upscaled.

GarrusVakarian1522d ago (Edited 1522d ago )


Yeah, it will definitely be upscaled, the 360 and PS3 had pretty good upscalers too so people who are buying the last gen versions won't have anything to worry about. It won't look quite as good as the native next gen versions obviously, but still pretty good.

EXVirtual1522d ago

It's confirmed to run at 1080p @ 60fps on next gen? If it is, cool, must've missed it.

Anyways, I definitiely think this game will be upscaled to 720p on the PS3 and 360.

ZombieKiller1522d ago

Yeah that is REALLY nice. I can't wait to see a Metal Gear game with these graphics running @ 1080p/60FPS. It is going to be SWEEETTT!

I am honestly so excited for this story I almost don't care about graphics....almost.

"They mostly come out at night....mostly" lol

Sevir1522d ago

The Next Gen Versions run at 1080p/60fps so we should see a huge upgrade in fluidity.

from the article: Note: the shot at the top of the post is just an artistic rendition to showcase the concept, and it’s not representative of the actual looks of the game.

blakstarz1522d ago (Edited 1522d ago )

They both look good to me as well, I don't think you will go wrong whether you have a next gen system or not.

Ps4Console1521d ago

Will you see that much difference being honest I doubt it .

MysticStrummer1522d ago

Well if they look exactly the same, wouldn't that be kinda odd?

Summons751522d ago

Looks great but this is kind of a bad comparison, they aren't side by side and they aren't marked.

Game is going to be a treat for anyone who play Last or Current gen. It will be much better when the full game comes out with GZ and PP all in one instead of this silly one mission tutorial for twenty bucks crap.

allgamespc20121522d ago

why the dumb question on the title?

ginsunuva1522d ago

Whoever wrote this knows nothing about games whatsoever.
