Here Is How inFAMOUS: Second Son Looks With and Without its Advanced Lighting and Reflection Effects

inFAMOUS: Second Son looks absolutely stunning, and it owes part of its beauty to its advanced lighting and reflection effects. At the Game Developers Conference Lead Engine Programmer Adrian Bentley showcased a few pictures of the game with and without some of those effects. (inFamous: Second Son, PS4)

Opening the gifs really helped, but dang this game looks good!

I can't wait to get my stupid backlog out of the way and play it.

best game this gen so far imo, and i have played all new releases wince the new consoles came out. As far as graphics go nothing on console touches it not even killzone and considering its open world and part of the first wave of games on the new consoles it is mind blowing to say the least.

Best game this gen so far? Yeah, I'd agree. Its the first game this gen Ive spent 8 hours straight playing.

I wished SP had included fan made missions like I2 had, people made some crazy missions. I am on my second playthrough and want to keep going but want to also wait for some added powers in DLC like finishing paper trail. Too much fun to be had and enjoying my powers!

Such a pretty game. And my god, the sound design is the best I've heard, especially on a 7.1 home theater. The sound imaging is immaculate. Every time a mobile command units blow up or a checkpoint crumbles it's ear candy. I agree with some of the reviews that the gameplay takes a half step back from I2, but I'm just nitpicking. I also platinumed recently.

Also the best written game of the generation. They kept it simple and really just focused on making Deslin and his brother as likable they could. Which really paid off toward the end for me.

Maybe read my comment again, im not sure how many times i used the word "CONSOLE" but i am pretty sure it was enough to get the point across i was talking about console, get your fanboy head out of your arse.

Playstation 3 backlog? Same here, but i dont even own a ps4 yet. Lol
Thatlalala  +   396d ago
Fuck your backlog. If you have a PS4 and you haven't played this, your doing it wrong.
OutcastMosquito  +   396d ago
I agree 100%!!! XD

For a open world the game looks fantastic can't wait to see what SP does next.

Better story and more content would be awesome for the next game. I expect they'll be optimizing the hell out of their engine for the next game if they choose to continue the series.

What really amazing is that these are no bullshots either, thats what the games really looks like when youre playing it, except ad in that its as smooth as a velvet child and has amazing destruction.

I cant wait til the no hud patch comes in, but I wish they had a totally free roam 1st person view spectator mode to really take some special screenshots.

No HUD will be amazing!

The game still looks good without them.
ironmonkey  +   396d ago
love the game and of course, 1080p no problem.
Sly-Lupin  +   396d ago
I can really only see a difference in the first comparison. And even then, I have to really look for it.
ShowGun901  +   396d ago
its close, but its the difference between good and amazing. IMO
KingPin  +   396d ago
i still cant believe this is a launch title.
cant wait to see the type of graphics the PS4 pulls off in another 3-4 years time.
ShowGun901  +   396d ago
launch WINDOW title... but yea i agree, this is one hell of a start. to be able to pull these graphics in an open world game is frigging AMAZING!
KingPin  +   396d ago
lol my bad bro...launch window title. but you knew what i meant.
ShowGun901  +   396d ago
LOL yea, it probably woulda looked this good in november too, but im sure the extra time helped polish it up!
akaFullMetal  +   396d ago
Its only going to get better, graphically, air and physics. I mean this game is open world, has great lighting, great fps, and has destruction! The future looks very bright!

Was hoping the "without effects" shot was going to be of GTA3 or something haha.

Seriously though, game looks great even without the bells and whistles

If Infamous looks this good so early in the PS4 life imagine what it would look like in 3-5 years time when Sucker Punch decide to make the next one.

I look at it in the same way Uncharted evolved on the PS3. Look at Uncharted 1 compared to Uncharted 2 or 3, what a difference a few years can make. Excited to see what Sony's 1st party are capable of down the line.

I just got the game yesterday and I really can't put the controller down. I need help. So far its been a blast.
Shane Kim  +   396d ago
Fantastic game.
dmonee  +   396d ago
Wha? Wha? This article was like reading a college text book. More power to the tecchi nerds that understand the lingo. I couldn't figure out which pics looked better or just different. Not a bad article, it's just loaded with info I don't understand. Go Dualshockers GO!!!!!!!
