Defy death by racing at the edge of this canyon's cliff. They added groups of spectators also, nice touch.
I just got back from the mall picking up my Wii an while I was ther I played the Ps3. I played Nba 07 an the much talked about motorstorm.while the graphics in motorstorm looks great, the game playes great, a good sence of speed, it really looks like its going pretty fast!!overall its a pretty good game, nothing that cant be done on xbox!! now for the guys that said it had awsome particle effects with mud slinging on the windshield an mud building up on the cars. NO!!!right now its just a bunch of dust that goes away pretty quickly, an throught the whole race the truck I was using stayed shiny or clean during the whole 10 lap race!! ok now I remember someone bashing it was either GOW or COD3 that the grass didnt move an the trees didnt react,well the same thing is going on here. I played with the dune buggy car,a black an red truck, an a woman on a green motorcycle an I ran over the grass an it didnt react either, the cars ran right through it like it wasnt even there. I even drove right on top of the weeds an stopped an the tires went right through it!!the rag dool physics were ok but if I wanted to get technical, when I was using the bike a crashed I slid across the ground like I was on a smooth surface, kinda like I was on glass,but that wasnt a problem for me!! the game overall was fun, it difinitly next gen graphics wise, is it a game that sets the 2 systems apart!! no not at all, but it should be a game that anyone who plays it should have fun!!
I think the games looks good for gameplay and graphics.
But can some one tell me how many processors the Cell chip has? I thought it was taken down to 8, so you have 7 SPE and 1 SPU(I think). But now every were I read it appears to have only 7. Is this true?
It's one G5 processor(PPE) and 7 SPEs. They can either work independently or collaborate in different groupings, which is kinda cool.
One of the SPEs is dedicated to the OS, so the devs don't have to worry about the OS taking some of the other SPEs or the PPU at any time. This leaves 6 SPEs and the PPU for games.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any follow-up articles on what the final OS requirements are. Have you seen anything recent? I just remember a few devs saying that final OS requirements are smaller than what companies originally lay out, but I'm not sure by how much. With PS2 it was a 50% reduction in CPU/RAM requirements, but considering how much multi-tasking the PS3 has to do there's no easy way to predict.
It's probably still 6 SPEs and the PPE available for game functions, but they might've freed up the 7th SPE for game functions (only devs know). "Sony is not considering having the OS periodically demand a second SPE." The 5 SPE possibility was shot down pretty fast.
http://arstechnica.com/news... That's the article in case anyone wants to see it. The info's 7 months old, but still a good read.
this demo a few days before Gears of War came out and a few days after. For this game being the graphical showcase of the P$3, I don't see anything superior to 360. The textures were all blurry. The crash animations were good though. After playing Gears though, this game looks even less impressive.
Guess you guys haven't heard or own a PS3 yet. There's an updated motostrom demo available for download for free from the playstation store. It looks better than the kiosk version. Check ign.com for their write up about it. I played the koisk version the day before I picked up my ps3 at launch. The textures are improved in the demo along with the particle effects. Plus I doubt there would be mud splashing everywhere if the ground was dry; makes sense doesn't it? Plus it's not done yet. The latest video shows they added spectators.
Neat... I'm looking foward to this title. :D
Good normal-mapping, natural lighting, great physics, and terrain deformation. Having 20 racers at once is awesome, and it's good the see the PS3 can handle so many AI/Physics calculations. The spectators up on the cliffs adds some noticeable life to the game.
I think the only thing left to do is make the vegetation interactive, but considering how much they've accomplished on the more important aspects it doesn't matter too much. The game looks fun, and that's what's important. Hopefully they add that little detail in the next version though.
"The spectators up on the cliffs adds some noticeable life to the game."
Well if you look at the spectators closely, it looks like there are about 3 animations. Besides, when was the last time you seen that many people standing on a edge of a cliff??? Maybe they're all ps3 fanboys ready to jump realizing their beloved ps3 is inferior to the 360 ;)
...you see the lil wink in the end? It was a joke...nobody here is mad. I own a 360 and the best games, why would I be mad? Relax buddy, it's just video games!
...and another MS fanboy gone mad.
This game looks damn impressive and has physics 360 gamers can only dream about. Dissapearing bullet holes in GOW anyone? Haha
I wouldn't worry about vanishing bullet hole's in GoW i would be more concerned about the vanishing next gen gameplay and graphic's on the PS3. PS1 gamplay with PS2 graphics should have your ass too ashamed to even comment on the 360.
yes its stupid, but it happens in nearly all shooting games, and im sure it will be fixed for GOW 2
There is nothing to be ashamed of as it's already showing up that if the devs take their time, the games look better on the PS3 Haha actually you should be ashamed on even dissing the PS3 while playing on this little overheating ripp off hoover. You should be ashamed that after 1 year on market the best game is GOW, a game with crappy story, crappy physics and poor lasting appeal.
Never look better just bigger. I take it you dont know much about the PS3 besides owning it. All consoles games look better when dev's use the hardware better. lol
If you're talking about MGS4 and FF they look like PS2 games with less jaggies with all that weak ass Cartoony Anime looking cover up the true power of the PS3 Art styles.
You really think Sony has changed it's tactics in one generation 360 is more powerful and everybody know's it at least everybody that know's what there talking about and work on both.
No $hit, but why only console games? What's about PC games? Haha every game becomes better if more time is invested ;-)
PS3 is harder to develope and just launched, so devs need more time than usual to take advantages of given hardware. NBA 2K7, a PS3 launch game already looks better than the 360 version, expect most 2nd gen PS3 games to blow 360 3rd gen. MotorStorn and Lair, both 1st gen games already blow any 360 game.
Haha too bad that everybody is saying PS3 is more powerful and nobody as of today said that about 360. Even your boy Carmie admitts it haha
http://www.xbox360only.nl/s... PS3 will never have the detailed true to life graphics the 360 has dont make post Alan Wake pics. You know i just set you up to be proven wrong, have you been reading the news lately?.
This game looks like alot of fun. I definatly want to try this one out. But seriously, if u guys think that this game cant work on a 360 than just tattoo "sony sucker" on your forehead!
I like the way some of these sony suckers still believe it looks like the cgi from e3. The cars in that demo shattered in hundreds of pieces when they crashed...Some of these crashes consist of around 5 pieces. And some sony suckers actually believe it looks better than the e3 demo!!! Wow, thats called denial folks!!!
Nevertheless; looks like a great game!
Used to say that the 360 couldn't handle cutting edge computer ports?
Isn't it funny that now its the ps3 that can't handle games that the 360 runs flawlessly.
That is the funniest stuff ever. I know they feel really lame. but I told them months ago that they would get what they deserve when the ps3 launched finally.
The ps3 plain and simple can't handle games that the 360 runs via 3rd party games. And to top it off....the exclusive ps3 games have recieved 2's, 3's, and ONE 8. Freaking hilarious.
Now all you hear is sony fanboys making excuses for sony and their system that was suppose to be the real deal. ha ha ha ha ha
And the thing is...I don't feel bad for those rabid sony fanboys who constantly dissed the 360....Because now they pay 200 dollars more for a video game console that can't compare to the 360 in terms of real world games and performance as of NOW. WOW...
And Thanks Sony Fans for making a butt out of yourselves all those months. You got exactly what you deserve in the end. An over priced underperforming video game console.
P.S. Nba 2k7 doesn't run as smooth as the 360 version and the detail to the muscles, faces, and charactors are more detailed on the 360 version. I have both. The ps3 version in 1080p is sluggish and barely playable as a sports game. And even in 720p it still doesn't run as smooth as the 360 version. If you don't believe me...Here is a link to the Gamespot review which supports what I have wittnessed playing both versions at home.
Here is a direct quote from the review
"NBA 2K7 is one of the few PS3 launch games that supports 1080p. The game looks nice in "true HD," but you're more likely to notice the aliasing around players' bodies, as well as blurry names and numbers on their jerseys. All of this extra resolution comes at the expense of the frame rate, though even in 720p, the action gets choppy. The frame rate's not too bad when you're playing from the default camera angle, but it isn't as smooth as on the Xbox 360. The frame rate really becomes erratic if you play using the baseline camera."
They also state in the review....." If you already own the game on the Xbox 360, there's no reason to pick it up again on the PlayStation 3. "
"Do yall remember when DJ, JIN, The Truth, The enforcer, and others used to say that the 360 couldn't handle cutting edge computer ports?"
Even though I don't remember anyone stating that since you talk out of your ass on a daily basis, what does that have to do with PS3? You ignore all the positive reviews and previews for PS3 titles and only focus on the negative minority.
"Visually, NBA 2K7 has been taken up a notch, particularly in how the game is rendered. According to Thomas, the way the PS3 renders pixels gives its overall look a richer appearance when compared to the 360 version. From a personal standpoint, it looks much more organic and lifelike -- and if you thought you were watching a realistic game on the 360, just wait until you see it on the PS3."
Explain that then.
You have to give it up to DJ, even in defeat, he still is swinging.
and it looks great and is very fun to play.it doesn't look like the target render,but then again,that was A TARGET RENDER.the lighting is cool and the game is fast.FKT^^^,i smashed into something and my truck just exploded.it might be based on speed.some crashes are small and don't kick up a lot of debris,some just look killer.but for a game that was aiming for the target,it's very close in gameplay.the demo doesn't have any mud though.i would like to see that and some rain if they have it for final release next year.got to go check some mo.
Are we talking about the same "target render" as Killzone at E3 2005?
another fanboy rant posted above.ports never take advantage of hardware.that's fact.one system has been out a year.one just released.the system is fun to play.end of story.thanks sony,nintendo and microsoft for making cool systems where there are good games to play.
When Xbox 360 came out, Sony Fans cried that it was crappy and the PS3 would kill it because PS3 was so much more powerful. Even called it a Xbox 1.5.. On its release, 360 looked amazing compared to PS2 and Xbox. The way Sony makes out is that PS3 is a generation leap to 360. If that's so, then why do the PS3 games look crappier and/or slower than the 360 versions? That's why Xbox fans are pissed at Sony fans. You have yet to prove anything and in typical Sony fasion, just over hype everything.
He said that it doesn't look no where near as good as the 360 games. I have to agree with his assesment. He has no agenda...he won't even play the ps3 at our house. His friends say its weak and I should have sold it on Ebay. Its funny when 9-12 year olds think its lame. I actually find myself defending it to the kids...I don't think its bad...I just don't think it is nearly as good as the 360 is for games. Motorstorm is fun to a certain degree and looks decent in High Def.....But the frame rate is very slow for a racer. But I see absolutely nothing in Motorstorm that the 360 couldn't do better. Honeslty....I can do nothing but laugh when I think about the enforcer, DJ, Jin, and others who actually believe ps3 games are fresh and new. The 360 has been putting out games for a year with many of them being much better than the ps3 launch games. Even on CNN today they had a tech guy on there saying he reccomends the 360 over the ps3 and he explained why in detail. Pretty common sense sfuff.....
Bottom line....keep talking about Gears of War. But the fact is there are 19 EDITORS CHOICE games from IGN on the 360...Right NOW ! ! ! ! With many many more to come. The 360 launched with 4 editors choice games. WOW....Ps3 has 1 and it has recieved an average score of 88 percent on all gaming sites....Call of Duty 2 recieved an average score of 9 at launch a year ago....WOW...And sony fans say the 360 was rushed to market. But yet the 360 had more highly rated games to launch with. Interesting indeed. But most of all...I love hearing the sony fans make all kinds of excuses for the ps3 failures. Thanks Micrsoft....
Proof? Ha ha ha ha
You have over 1700 postings on this site. And I'm not going to go through all your lies and bs to find where you and other rabid fanatics talked stuff about the 360 not being able to handle PC ports. Everyone who has been apart of this site remembers the constant bashing done by you and a few others. It has everything to do with the ps3. The ps3 can't handle games that the 360 runs flawlessly....And the ps3 is suppose to be next gen? WOW....And I have a ps3 buddy. Nba 2k7 does not look as detailed and run as smooth as the 360 version.
The article you quoted was a preview of the game. And in that preview the guy self admittingly didn't compare the games head to head. I have compared them head to head and honestly the 360 version looks better and plays much better...Its somthing about the texture quality in the ps3 version. Its lacking. But that goes for all of the ps3 games. Like Matt Lee said many months ago...the ps3 will never be able to compete with the 360 in regards to texture quality and graphic fidelity. I see exactly what he was talking about NOW.
Not one review of the ps3 games is as good as the 360 cousins....
Every ps3 exclusive is getting 2's, 3's, and 6's.
With the exception of Resistance averaging 8's. WOW
G4TV even said they are soarly dissappointed in the ps3's games thus far. WOW
But thats right...we are all haters...we couldn't be honest....
Well, I'm honest about it...and all the reviews are honest about it. And we all agree. The ps3 is over priced and under performing from every aspect.
CNN had a tech guy on there and he clearly says that right now the 360 is outperforming the ps3 easily.
All the bashing you sony fans have been doing and now you have what you have been waiting for.
But ALL THE developers and editors and annalysts are "haters"...ha ha ha ha ha
Nope...DJ and others are just in complete and utter denial. Get over it folks. The war is over and not only does the 360 have a bigger base of fans out there this NEXT GEN...but it has the best and most complete next gen gaming experience on the market...according to everyone in the know.
Nicely said Gamer! :)
you ain't surely in the position to call names. After you got caught so many times lying, why would any believe any story of yours? Why would any even believe you got a kid? The multi account Real Freakio that's 24/7 here and plays in between has a kid? The mother must have some tough life and is raising 2 kids alone lol
Real Freakio I would advise you to repeat some classes, truth is there are 4 PS3 editors choice launch games ;-)
Another truth is COD3 is better than COD2, but received only a score of 8.8. It just looks now that before the 360 games only got such scores, cause there was no competition in the next gen console market and the reviewers had nothing for a comparison. Truth is 360 launched with avarage games and PC ports and had to wait 1 whole year for a killer app:
"One year in, the Xbox 360 has its Killer App. And we mean killer."
The PS3 on the other side launched with a killer app:
"Owners of some gaming systems have to wait years before they get a true "killer app," but PlayStation 3 users get theirs on day one."
Truth was enforced.
power of green II - NBA 2K7 was released September 26 and in Europe October 27, so you can hardly call it an extra time. Also in case you didn't know it, PS3 just launched and the devs have no experience working with the PS3 and also got the final kits just a few months ago. This are 3rd party devs without the support that for example MotorStorm or RFOM devs get. For a better comparison of the 3rd party games we must wait until the devs have some experience and even that won't be a real comparison. Many studios go the easy and cheap route(can't blame them for that) and develope for 1 platform and then port it to the others. This gen they developed for the 360 and ported it to PS3 and this can't go flawlessly. The PS3 hardware is just too different from the 360/PC hardware. Maybe in the later gens they will develope for the PS3 from the scratch, but even if they don't, the end result will be cause of the experience much better.
The real comparison can be only made between 1st party games, cause only with such games you can be sure that they are taking the advantages of given hardware. And there is difference in 360 and PS3 1st party games. While RFOM beats any 360 game when it comes to objects, action on screen and physics, MotorStorm does the same when it comes to visuals and physics.
I personally was really happy with the launch games of the 360, PGR3 had me hooked for months and I still think it looks good now, as well as COD2 and ghost recon etc. I think your being a bit unfair! yeah GOW looks amazing now and I still can't belive it but I certainly would'nt dismiss all of last years games and say the 360 had no killer app...I've been having the most fun on a console in the past year than I have ever had since I started played games in the ZX81 days, and I have a growing number of friends who have jumped in! and feel the same as me.
You give away that you was xbug because of all the childish name calling you do. I won't even reply to your talk of my child or my family.
But, in regards to games...which is what this site was intended for us to discuss.....I love hearing you and others make excuses daily for games that have been recieving 2's, 3's, 5's, and 6's.... ha ha ha ha ha....
And one game that averages an 8 is not a killer AAA title buddy. The 360's launch saw just about every game get 8's. and 4 recieved 9's. So make what every excuses you want...it just makes you look childish and sad buddy.
And if we take your advice and compare 1st party games....ha ha ha ha ha....
Your first party launch games have an average score of 6 out of 10 buddy. Ps3 scores have been F's and D's buddy. And thats the 1st party games....
What excuse will you have now? I love hearing them. Its hilarious. You are a Joke and everyone on this site knows it.
P.S. how many bubbles did your xbug account loose from those type of personal attacks before you switched to your new account? ha ha ha ha ha...
I don't agree with all of this constant back and forth comparision crap, but The people that you mentioned did talk alot of crap and don't deserve any respect what so ever! 2007 is going to be a bad year for Sony and the year hopefully some of these hypnotized fanboys wake up and smell the coffee! I wonder how good the european launch is going to go and will they at least be a little brighter than America and Japan!
Who called resistance a killer ap? Because it doesn't seem to be. Granted it seems better than any 360 launch game but it better be, bcause it is nov. 2006 not 2005. A killer ap is a game that people remember years to come. From the lukewarm reviews and comments that I am hearing this game will be forgotten rather quikly. It is all just marketing hype telling us that this game is something special. Maybe it is but with an average review of below 9 I don't think so.
it's not better than any 360 launch game. COD2 was better when compared for launch titles. Just look at the reviews. ROFM is getting 88% on average and COD2 was getting low 9s.
the new demo download is just bad ass it's much faster then the demo at your local stores and the graphics have been upped wow i love this game.!!!!!!
It is better compared to the kiosk version out now. I wonder how much more work they want to put in before it's released.
To TopGamer: your 9 year old? Have we gone to a new low as to involve people's own children in this fanboy debate. That's so elementary school. If you don't like the PS3 then sell it. It may be open but at least you'll get more than you paid for it.
A lot of you know of course that a lot of reviews for the PS3 are being compared to the XBox 360. However, when XBox 360 came out, it's games and graphics were being compared to the last generation. Of course the game ratings would be higher at the 360 launch; there was no other next-gen system available at the time to compare it to. If PS3 came out first, before XBox360, the games would have been rated a lot higher. This is for known fanboys and fanboys in disguise: a lot of them seem to lack logic and common sense in arguments. If you take offense to that statement, chances are you're a fanboy.
What ever you say bub.
You're right. It is whatever I say.
" Resistance has a PS2-on-steroids look. Resistance isn't ugly, but its visuals are disappointing for a PlayStation 3 game."
Quote from Gamepro.com
the following about in-game Resistance screens:
"Is this CG cut scenes? I don't see a hud, a weapon...anything to show its actually in game. Sony is good for this type of stuff...But where are the ingame screen shots? What are they attempting to do showing all these "obviously" not in game screen shots of this game. Show the real deal please."
'Course, two months later, he claims the game looks like crap. But it fits his behavior. If something looks too good, he'll claim it's "obviously prerendered", and then once he's disproven he reverts back to "it looks like a PS2 game" mode.
I'm sure RFOM is a really good game, but how can Sony fans say its a killer-app? That's the game you want PS3 to be connected to? A game that got an avg of high 8s and was considered to have just OK graphics?
Motorstorm on the other hand is starting to look promising, but I'll wait. I still believe its not close to the E3 2005 CGI.
By the way, 360 had a stronger launch titles. Here's some scores (got bored and wanted to settle this).
NFS Most Wanted-8/8.5
Sorry... got tired. As far as the multiplaform on ps3/360 releases, 360 has gotten better reviews and overall the graphics were better on the 360.
why did you use this link: http://arstechnica.com/news... did you really think no one would look at it and see how it can be used to prove that the 360 is superior to the ps3 at gaming???
The 360’s OS uses only 3% of its CPU time on Cores 1 and 2, while Core 0 is free altogether, and 6.25% (32mb) of its 512mb RAM, this means that the 360 has more processing power available for in-game graphics and physics. Meanwhile, the ps3’s OS…
“In the case of the PS3 this equates to 12.5% of the available Cores on the CPU always reserved, an additional 12.5% sometimes taken by the OS, 12.5% of the available RSX memory and 25% of XDR Cell memory. Balancing these out, one could argue that Sony has removed up to 25% of the available CPU power and 18.75% of RAM for these features as well as others that are not mentioned here or will be added in future updates to the PS3 Operation System.”
Wow, 18.75% (96mb) of the ps3’s 512mb of total RAM, vs. 6.25% (32mb) of the 360’s 512mb RAM, say, that means the ps3 has 416mb RAM left vs. the 360’s leftover 490mb RAM for graphics…
I could be wrong, but isn’t 490mb greater than 416mb???
http://arstechnica.com/news... <--the link you posted DJ, LMFAO!!!
http://ps3.qj.net/Inside-th... <--another unbiased source that states the same exact ps3 information from your link DJ, and also describes the 360 and compares them.
DJ, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT, ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU
DJ just keeps getting owned like the b1tch that he is and he still comes back for more...unbelievable!!! But funny at the same time.
AANNDD another comments section goes down the sh!t pipe!
No Demo or nothing for the Game?
What about Warhawk?
Frame City Killer and all of the Supposed launch titles?
Oh when Will the Madness End with Sonee?
u still at it ? give it up .
as for the article lol have they down graded the graphics on motorstorm or have i been playing gow for to long and now most if not all the games on the ps3 look very poor grphicly.
oh dj play thru the full campain on gow have a look at the AI physics . u might b very suprised :) .
happy gaming to every one
"as for the article lol have they down graded the graphics on motorstorm or have i been playing gow for to long and now most if not all the games on the ps3 look very poor grphicly. "
Yeah Cause i though Cod2 look Pale in comparison to GOW.But About 6 Months ago i though COD2 was one of the most detailed games out. Thats What im taking about in graphical leaps and bound in year span look at GOW it make anything PS3 has to offer and Curb stomps it into the Pavement.
I am now sure DJ is a wind up. Either a wind up or a bit mental. Either of the two still means you are a narrow minded fool.
