Worlds Factory:
"With Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes coming in less than two weeks, we thought it would be appropriate to compare available screens from next-gen version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes with Metal Gear Solid 4 screens, and to see how big is the generational gap."

The colorless gen is finally over lol

Irishguy951660d ago

Haha, yeah I think Halo and Uncharted are the only 2 big games that kept colour in their palette

SolidGear31660d ago

Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us?

yezz1660d ago

GTA V, Far cry 3, Minecraft... But it's true that there were loads of washed-out games last gen.

Razmossis1659d ago

MGS4's sound is so underrated (scratch the... so, not talked about), yet it is hands down the best sounding game of the generation. People need to give over about graphics for a day or two. Start noticing sound instead.

I think he means at the beginning of the 7 gen guys

Kinda true, there were many washed-out palettes, mainly in the early part of the generation though.

Though I never had problems with "colorless" games. First that comes to mind is Killzone 2, and I really enjoyed its enviroments.
So much, I complained Shadow Fall is just too colorful. :)

But seeing more colors can't be a bad thing either.

Well to be fair KZ2 was during a major war.It;s not like there's gonna be rainbows and magical unicorns during the game.The setting actually drew me in it was gritty time for the ISA.

RevXM1659d ago

Agree with vegeta.
While colours were "absent" through most the levels they all came alive through attention to detail and nuances. it seemed alive or real and it all drew me in.

Now we have the "bloom" gen to look forward to

Alexious1660d ago

Nah, Bloom gen was Xbox one.

Tony-A1660d ago


I'm not even sure what that means...

Lord_Sloth1659d ago (Edited 1659d ago )

@ Tony
He means the original XBox.....I think.

mgszelda11660d ago

MGS4 had color. It is that off white kind of yellow/gray. Every mgs has a color that pops out. MGS1(blue), MGS2(green blue), MGS3 (mostly green with some yellow)

dillhole1660d ago

I blame Gears Of War for that.

I still think MGS 4 was one of the best looking games of last gen. I'm expecting MGS V will make that mark to with Phantom Pain. But on the color side MGS 4 really is very greyish as MGS V is extremely vibrant and full of beautiful colors.

Salooh1660d ago

I consider it as big as the last of us in last gen. But it looks good for this gen. It would have been better if they focused on this gen.

Alexious1659d ago

Nah...The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls are the best looking games of last gen.

MGSIV isn't even close.

elhebbo161659d ago

maybe color wise but the animations and textures on the characters where solid in my opinion.

PS4FEVER1659d ago

NOT really, these screenshots are bullshots. Mgs4 looked better than those. Different levels of mgs4 had its own colors. It wasnt all grey, but then again its war time, kojima chose the colors for a reason. My only issue with mgs4 was that it was broken into chapters, unlike mgs3. Mgs3 is still the game to beat.

Festano1660d ago

The differences are obvious, I think I get it.

FantasyStar1660d ago

I would've been more interested in a last-gen comparison. I already know the PS4/XB1 would look nicer. It would've been more interesting to see a PS3 comparison of MGS4 and MGS5.

MorbidPorpoise1660d ago

Gotta love those nextgen weeds lol.

micx1660d ago

Weed and lots of colors on next-gen :O
