inFAMOUS: Second Son Uses SMAA T2x, 25,000 Particles for the Rain Alone in the Orbital Drop Scene

Sweet tech and isn't being downgraded either! best news ever!!! (Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons)
Lukas_Japonicus  +   530d ago

I'm sorry, did you just say...25,000 particles? Wow.

Also, that AA solution should result in a really clean 1080p image.....which is already apparent from leaked screenshots.

Can't wait for this game.

You can't really go off screens leaked from Devs as they're usually cleaned up of potential blemishes, regardless the game footage looks great.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   530d ago

I'm not talking about touched-up, developer bullshots, im talking about the ones that have been leaked via people who have early copies of the game. The game looks so clean and HD....even in compressed share button captures.

The image quality is just really sweet on this game I seen it in all the shots and it isn't just some post process or downscaled bullshot cheating like most games, it's actually just really good anti aliasing!

On a console!!!

Bout time

Kingthrash360  +   530d ago
kz did start next gen. it was the first next gen game out this year that looked next gen, but launch games are always the worst.
this had more dev time and not rushed...this is the new bar....this, my friend, is next gen.
Magicite  +   530d ago
first true next-gen game.
finally console games will start using anti-aliasing.

Nooo current gen CURRENT lol.
ITPython  +   530d ago
@serratos27 - On March 21st it will officially be current gen. What we have gotten so far have only been next-gen teasers, but the real deal is the day Infamous:SS arrives.

This is one of those things that I assume is supposed to get me excited, but I don't have a reference point, so I really don't know if that's a lot or not.

Abriael  +   530d ago
according to my (limited) experience, that's a lot. The average explosion on an old gen game is about 2000.
cell989  +   530d ago
Wow I like those numbers
Statix  +   530d ago
I called the SMAA.

webeblazing  +   530d ago
yeah smaa is great.
ABizzel1  +   530d ago
Good job. Sony's AA solution games like Killzone: SF used is pretty much a more demanding SMAA.

SMAA is like 75% FXAA + 25% MSAA = solid AA, low performance hit, less blur
SonyAA is like 75% MSAA + 25% FXAA = good AA, modest performance hit, slight TfAA bonus
G20WLY  +   530d ago
Well done SMAAtarse ;)
mkis007  +   530d ago
I see what you were trying to accomplish if it is any consolation.
Statix  +   530d ago
SMAAtass would've worked better.

First taste of next gen, just 1 week away! :D I can almost taste it.
GeraltofRivia  +   530d ago
I tasted next gen about 3 years ago when I was able to play games at 1600p. I will probably buy a PS4 for great games like the new Infamous however next gen is not quite next gen when a pc can run games way past 1080p
kingdom18  +   529d ago
This IS next gen, for consoles. You can't compare it to PCs when they can constantly be upgraded.
EXVirtual  +   530d ago
All of that in native 1080p! The anti-aliasing looks so good man. Surprising they can achieve this sort of thing in an open world game.
GeraltofRivia  +   529d ago
This has been achieved in open world games for about 7 years already.
Tripl3seis  +   530d ago
Just got my ps4!!!!! Finally after searching for over a month for it can't wait to play this bad boy wen I get home!!!
Onenyte  +   530d ago

Your timing couldn't be any more perfect.
Tripl3seis  +   530d ago

kenshiro100  +   530d ago
You're lucky. I have yet to get one.
Tripl3seis  +   530d ago
Keep searching bro I went to best buy were I live at and they had 10 ps4s left so I was lucky to get one
ShowGun901  +   530d ago

bam3737  +   530d ago
Get the word all 6million ps4 owners lets buy this game !
Studio-YaMi  +   530d ago
With all these touch ups? it would be a shame if this game sells poorly(which I doubt) but shame on the Playstation community if that ever happens.

The game looks FANTASTIC! :D
serratos27  +   530d ago
It will sell not much else out there.

Until the game disk is in my PS4 I will hold judgement on the quality of the visuals.
EXVirtual  +   530d ago
A lot of the recent screenshots of inFamous: Second Son are from people who got the retail version of the game early.
So don't worry about the visuals.
mkis007  +   530d ago
apologize accidentally disagreed
farhad2k8  +   530d ago
Can't wait! Hope it arrives early in the post, been waiting for this since E3!
jairusmonillas  +   530d ago
I'm not a fan of infamous but the graphics are really awesome I can't wait to see my favorite games with graphics like this.. FFXV and KH3 is going to be awesome with ps4 graphics :D
kingdom18  +   529d ago
I just salivated at the thought of KH3 with graphics like this.
chobit_A5HL3Y  +   530d ago
there's nothing about this game that ISN'T next-gen lolz it's gonna be scary to see how much better ps4 games will look over the next few years...
Father__Merrin  +   530d ago
by the gods, this is best next gen graphics ever!!!!!
GeraltofRivia  +   530d ago
best next gen console graphics ever, maybe. however graphics way beyond 1080p or what the ps4 can handle have been around for at least the past few years.
