Rumors about upcoming PS4 exclusives have been following one another lately, and there’s another interesting one coming from industry insider Ahsan Rasheed, who has also something for Xbox One fans in the form of new Halo info and more.
Playstation Exclusives have always had ''Killer Graphics.'' This shouldn't be a rumor
Oh yeah for sure. Ratchet and Clank games always had killer graphics
R&C on PS2 looked stunning; Tools of Destruction and a Crack in Time look phenomenal too. Do you think that "Killer Graphics" only apply to realistic graphics?
XiNaruto - apparently that always seems to be the argument against Nintendo games. Mario 3D World looks beautiful, and MK8 looks simply awesome.
I think people are starting to like stylized graphics more and more since realistic graphics age very fast and after a few years looks dated. Meanwhile, stylized graphics never age or age much slower. Wind Waker will always look stunning, as will R&C. Dont get me wrong though, I like my realistic graphics too. But Ill take a great art style over realistic any day.
Did you just compare Insomniacs artistic approach to their games compared with games that are made with a more realistic approach??? Not every game company wants the great realistic graphics approach for their games. I guess you are also going to call out Sunset Overdrive for not having killer graphics Hell even flower looked amazing
The attempt at sarcasm comes off as blind unjustified ignorance.
If your using the term "Killer Graphics" then yes should mainly refer to realism or atleast something close. This is what the average gamwr would rhink, but i agree, even aome cartoony games can look incredible but killer rarely would describe it. Cept KI. Haha
Lol dualshockers + thuway the shill = clickbait heaven
Heh when you say KILLER GRAPHICS you expect it to look godly. Like Uncharted/Killzone level. It's not about realism or whatever, but can you honestly say R&C games wouldn't look that good on another console I was merely pointing out the original claim that every PS exclusive has killer graphics. If you say R&C games also have killer graphics then every Xbox game also has killer graphics. SMH fanboys
@blitz0623 Care to provide a platformer that has better graphics than R&C? None on the Xbox for sure and not just yet on the Wii U.
Having better graphics is subjective. And the point is R&C games were never about having "Killer Graphics". I could have easily said Infamous 1&2 which didn't have "Killer Graphics" and they are both PS exclusives, debunking the original statement that claims PS exclusives have always had it. Or are you gonna tell me now those games had killer graphics? Don't get me wrong they had good graphics, but not "killer graphics". Tell me people. when you read "Killer Graphics" does the first game that come to your mind is a game with animated graphics? Lol riiight. All of you who disagreed with me expect a game like The Order or Uncharted.
@Neonridr: Nobody's denying the fact that Mario 3D World looks great, but what people shouldn't do is say that it looks on par or better than something like inFAMOUS SS, which I've seen people do. In that case, Mario 3D World can't even compete. Well, people can make that argument, but it's most likely subjective because what they're arguing about is art style.
Halo is just sounding better and better. Open world doesn't sound too promising in terms of what it is going to look like graphically, but 343i winning best graphics with Halo 4 makes me think they'll do a stellar job on vastly more powerful hardware. Likely a strong GOTY contender. Sooooo glad bungie gave up on halo, with as boring as the destiny game play videos have been lately no doubt Halo 5 would have been a massive letdown in their hands. Thank you bungie for moving onto other projects, best thing that has happened to halo since halo 1.
Hey if people think is a killer graphic then they are entitle to it since it's a opinion but it doesn't mean you have to come here in this article and just being sarcastic. Ratchet and Clank have Killer graphics as a platform since you can't compare platformer with uncharted/ killzone which it doesn't make sense. You may be old in N4G but it doesn't mean you have to be a partypooper. It's like comparing Mario with Metal Gear Solid Ground Zerous graphics and they are two different type a game Mario is cartoonic while MGS GZ is realistic. Tearaway have killer graphics, Mario 3d world have killer graphics, killer graphics could be with cartoonic and realistic games.
no Blitz just no.
Lair and Haze had "Killer Graphics" too.
They sort of did, especially for the genre
@Panthers I second everything you said. I mean look at Okami or Killer 7! I would still pick up and play them to this day and not once think what the hell am I doing playing this dated looking game I played before? (I even thought about this yesterday when I played like 5 minutes of MGS4 on my dusty ps3). SO yeah I love stylized games like borderlands and the like the only one I didn't enjoy much though was the last Prince of Persia game...
Donkey Kong Country (1/2/3) have killer graphics.
i agree their exclusives have always had killer graphics so theres no real surprise their I' mean look at deep down even if it is third party its currently imo the best looking console game out their at the moment and i hope that the jrpg xbox exclusive is lost odessy 2 for xbox 1
Its a rumor as the information provided in the dualshockers article is based on rumors with no facts. As far as playstation games always having the best graphics or exclusives that is also subjective and not a fact. So yes rumor would be exactly where this belongs. Lastly why would people concern themselves more with graphics over gameplay?
sony's 1st party always delivers on killer graphics. not new news
Well, yeah. Probably... "described as better than what we’ve seen with Ubisoft’s Snowdrop’s engine, and that’s definitely a tall promise." Agreed. Matching The Division would be an accomplishment.
exclusive JRPG for X1? nice!
Amazing what you get when you have a corporation buy off a developer!
Works for me, I like amazing things.
If it doesn't sell like hot dog poop, I will be quite surprised. If some of the bigger PS3 JRPGs didn't sell massively, and an established franchise like Final Fantasy sold as follows on the 360: FFXIII (2m), FFXIII-2 (0.7m) and Lightning Returns (0.15m), I don't think a new JRPG IP would do too hot. If it's Lost Odyssey 2, then it has a chance, but should be interesting to see what they come up with regardless.
Well, we saw Killzone : SF, and especially InFamous : SS how they look.
But the gameplay for both of those games are mediocre
Mediocre? Like that half content COD with mechs that's disappointing to everyone? http://www.amazon.com/Titan... And if the gameplay for Infamous is mediocre, Ryse's gameplay is complete trash (a game hyped for it's graphics). lol
Mediocre? I don't know what you consider as not because last time I checked, gameplay and control for both KZSF and Infamous SS are tight. Seriously, care to explain what is so mediocre about them? Even if I already know that you're just a troll!
@ScareFactor Understand what mediocre means before using it. BTW, This article is talking about the graphics not gameplay...
You should probably play them before running your mouth off.
I was going to stick up for Scare here and say why do you guys need to bring up M$ games. Now intentional or not it makes sense for replying to him. Otherwise anyone else i would say don't be so insecure in having to scram MS games out at the top of your lungs.
If anything is considered mediocre this gen, it would be Titanfall. The vast majority agree that it gets boring after just a few hours of play. If that isn't mediocre, then I don't know what is. Even the yearly COD games don't bore people that fast, and that series sets the standard in mediocrity. KZSF and Infamous:SS on the other hand, I got weeks upon weeks of 3-4 hours of night from them. Heck I played Infamous:SS twice through, one after another, platinumed it, and I'm already thinking about going through it again. The game not only is breaking records visually, but it is incredibly fun and addictive. Plus the photo mode is essentially a standalone game on its own.
Going by the screenshot which was teased by 343i im guessing the next halo will be an open world type game.
Open World Halo!!!!!!!! Dreams coming true. I would love a Lost Odyssey sequel in the works. Really solid JRPG and you could see Sakaguchi is a beast. If only he would go back into Directing JRPGs.
Same here bro. Imagine masterchief traveling across the world on a hover bike or banshee... or traveling across various worlds.
If they made an open world Halo there's literally nothing that could get in the way of me and that console. I don't care how much it would be priced.
"as much as Rasheed’s track record is quite solid" You don't say!
They keep saying that, but he says that for EVERY RUMOR and so far we haven't seen anything proven true?
All I need is Halo. Not a big FPS fan and the rest of them on consoles pale in comparison to the Halo franchise.
Sony will kill M$ easily at this E3
I very much doubt that, but E3 will be entertaining to watch
Phil Spencer vs Shuhei Yoshida This is the first time since Original Xbox that Xbox has had a head focused on gaming. I doubt either of them will "kill" the other, because their are two strong heads that have mad respect for one another going at it. Phil Spencer may've been put into power at a bit of a late time, but I can expect some epic game reveals even if they're just conceptual/CGI trailers to show off the games potential at E3.
I love Shu, but I wonder who will be presenting for Sony. I imagine it will be Andrew House, since jack is gone. :/ The new President of SCE isn't as strong a speaker as Jack was. I wish Cerny would do it though.
Doubt Yoshida will be the main guy on stage for Sony, maybe Shawn Layden
I'm more referring to the two powerheads who will be over seeing the presentation. Phil will be playing a major role since he wants less execs that shit their pants on stage. I still find it hilarious that he's getting agrees. Who really believes that one conference is going to "kill" the other when Don is gone?
I have to admit, im going to miss Jack Tretton.
If only they want to take a risk of buying all the games that made PlayStation amazing. ... like crash ...etc Not seeing this happening myself but I wish I am wrong
I don't think this e3 will be as condescending to MS and the last. MS will surely step up their game this year. Sure E3 will be great for Sony, but I think it will be equally as good for MS.
Do you think Sony is going to add even more pre-recorded cheering and clapping than they used last year?
@Andrewlb There's a word for your kind, and I don't care to feed them.
I'll admit, i'm more of a fan of Sony's consoles, but Sony usually has boring conferences. For all of Microsofts flaws, they usually put up a good show.
Stop giving these clowns exposure. They literally say nothing and use buzzwords. Have some freaking quality control and not post this crap.
Man an open world style halo game sounds really interesting. It reminds me of the original Bungie reveal. I can't wait for e3!!!
Sony and Microsoft are going to have damn good shows. Not doing a damn thing June 9th.
what does "heavy action" mean?
So many games confirmed and rumoured for Sony recently... H1Z1 - Confirmed Without Memory - Confirmed Project Beast - Rumoured Now this one... Plus we know that GG, SM, and other studios will have games!
I can't believe e3 is so close it only feels like couple months ago when the last e3 happened. I have a feeling Sony is going to have some old favourites to show this year fingers crossed.
I would really love some old PS1 and 2 IPs making a return. You know there were so many great and under rated games in these eras.. Mark of Kri, Legend of Dragoon, and the likes. Even more excited for the new IPs. Yes the time moves so fast!
I'm a little concerned with ps exclusives using graphics as a crutch. KZ & Infamous have stunning graphics but very little replayability. Meanwhile, forza & DR3 are less impressive visually but... I'm still playing them. And this is coming from a huge supporter of playstation.
Damn dude you nailed it on the head. uber bubbles to you!!!
I won the platinum trophy in InFamous and i still play it ( especially with photomode and Papertrail missions ). I finished KZ : SF a long ago and i still play MP. What's your point, curtis?
You find a game less replay ability, the other find more replay ability like( one man trash is another man treasures)
Do you find it non-replayable because your discs somehow broke in half? inFamous has as much replayability as you want to put into it. At least 2 playthroughs to experience the full story and it's an open world with fun powers and fun gameplay. Killzone has a reasonably long and good single-player, but its multiplayer is better and is more than worthy of replayability.
You find to games there not story driven re playaible, that no really surprising, I still play left 4 dead and portal a lot, but if your implying that forsake and dr3 are better games just because you replay value in them. Your completely wrong, sorry
