Final Fantasy 15 Screenshot Comparison Shows Impressive Graphics Evolution

"Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 15 is one the most anticipated games of the decade. Previously known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the game has seen its share of development challenges." (Final Fantasy XV, PS4, Xbox One)

Yebis is an optics middleware. It's not an engine. Comparing screens from a trailer which is a year old with something even older is also kind of ridiculous.

People shouldn't even be looking at screenshots, it's all about the gameplay. I don't even care if it's SD, any where above 15FPS is also fine.

Are you crazy? Even if you don't care about the graphics at all, everything below 30fps has a significant impact on the gameplay. 15 fps would be nearly unplayable for most games. Also SD resolution wouldn't allow devs to include as many details.

I agree that gameplay is important resolution and performance have an impact on gameplay and immersion. There is no reason for devs to aim for anything below 1080p at 30fps.

30fps is completely fine, 15fps is not.

The game looks better than the E3 presentation.
Previous videos had this game built on last gen and I can see quite the leap.

Middleware software they have no apparent intention to use for the full release of the game. Meaning that, like this discussion, Square's only wasted production time and resources.

Nevermind that what's been shown may not even look like what's been shown. In fact its a near certainty.

Yebis hasn't been developed by Square. It's a rather cheap middleware developed by Silicon Studio that was just used as a placeholder.

Can you guys all believe that next year will make this game 10 years since we heard about this? To me it's do or don't. My hype died a half of decade ago.

"Yebis hasn't been developed by Square."

And what does it matter: they using it. Not for the main production anyway.

The point was however how they're burning through money, making empty, pointless claims, and in general just puttering around.

I was really confused and thought the new footage was old, and old footage was new. I'm so happy that's not that case. That would be massive graphical downgrade. ;P

Not really sure which screenshot is which.

This is a stupid clickbait article.
abzdiine  +   78d ago
2 pictures to showcase the animation? is this article trying to troll us?
well the game has been shifted from PS3 to PS4 so why an article to state the obvious?
gamingbolt is about graphic difference and esram... can we have some gaming news please instead?

Of course the graphics are different knowing one version was the defunct PS3 version compared with the now PS4/XBO version

My most anticipated game based on E3 2013 footage. Getting tired of waiting though.

I dont see to much of an Impressive Graphics Evolution. How are we supposed to see impressive animations with pictures?
hkgamer  +   78d ago
I was waiting for the GIF to load and then noticed that this site/article just trolled me.

If anything, judging from those screenshots alone, it would seem animation is exactly the same since they all are in the same pose. LOL

Article could have atleast made a frame by frame gif to show the difference.

E3 2013 trailer which was running on the PC.

I look forward to seeing a Last Guardian version of this article, complete with trailer screengrabs.
Sevir  +   78d ago
This comparison is silly, how the heck do you compare animations from a STILL IMAGE! not even an Animated GIF? just stupid.
Nicominoru  +   78d ago
Bah, whatever I don't even know why modest topics like this bother coming up now because once 2015 gets here and the game is nearing release the only think people are going to be concerned about is if it runs "1080p, 60fps". Final Fantasy has been around for decades and it's a franchise that deserves a little more respect than that to be judged by standards like that. Graphically the game has always been acceptable on each platform it's been represented on and this one will be no different.

I'm looking forward to the unique world, memorable characters and the story they deliver per usual.

This needs to be released already, it's been WAY too long & I want to play in that greenery.
ZORDON  +   78d ago
Ill believe it when I see it.... 7+ years in the making.. so they have said.
Bobby Kotex  +   78d ago
At this point the only time I'll trust 'screenshots' is if it's from the final retail game.
