No matter what p it is, it's one of the most beautiful games shown at E3 on any system. Presentation is also off the charts.

MGS 5 GZ , crazy how blurry it looks on Xbox 1 compared to ps4

ThePresentIsAgift978d ago

I'm shocked by how bad it doesn't look running on my brothers brand new 46 inch at 1080p. MGSV Ground Zero, perhaps in some micrometer based comparison it would seem lesser. That's a univere apart from actually, you know, playing the game.

That old fashioned hobby that seems to have fallen by the way side whilst every Tom, Dick and Harry trolls their miserable life away.

2pacalypsenow978d ago (Edited 978d ago )

Well it's noticeable on my brand new 65" x930c big difference since the Xbox 1 version is 720p .
I guess anyone who doesn't agree with 720p being the same as 1080p is a troll then I guess so be it

krypt1983978d ago

I just beat gz on ps4 and the diff is negligible, if You get caught up and excited about something like that you need a new hobby, last time I checked gaming was about playing games, people on this site need to do more of it instead of looking for bullet point for there imaginary console war smh. What's next people are going to start buying hardcover books instead of paperback because the pages are thicker smh..

Andofaus978d ago

Yeah beautiful alright, and looks like it will be 1080p also. Great to see developers are starting to extract the potential of X1.

If you download the 10mbit HQ video, you would not state that. For a corridor third person game, it´s not good looking at all.

They rely on heavy visual effects to hide most of the other assets; .... they have learned nothing from 2013 TR, nothing...

- Except Lara, everyone else is low poly compared to her (as seen in the e3 demo, fatso guy with dead eye look)
- If you watch the HQ video, you notice lack of shadows in the first minute or so, in a scene/situation where only trees are rendered on the screen
- They kept the same boring utter shit fight against the wolves (remember?) in slow motion, now instead of wolves it´s a bear, a bear missing some animations/frames
- it´s so heavy narrow/corridor that you have to wonder WHY are they still using pre rendered videos? It looked bad when it switched from ingame to pre rendered....
- the heavy use on motion blur, yikes
- the dumb patrol stating the campfire is still WARM.. next scene it´s still lit behind him!
- her uber annoying attitude, constantly bitching, moaning, yapping ... holy cow!
- the bear oh fuck moment/escape scene .... just /smh
- same moment as in TR13, instead of a guy trying to pull you back (cave), this time its a bear....
- the snow effect just looks strange to me, like some worm left a trail behind it. She´s walking.. so where´re the footsteps?!
- overall not that appealing, there are better looking games on the xb1
- they sadly use the same formula of the prev. TR13...

Here some images from that 10mbit video

PersonMan978d ago

Yeah. I agree. It looks last gen.

BallsEye978d ago (Edited 978d ago )

It was the best looking game of e3 imo. I mean...THAT SNOW PHYSICS AND REALFLOW LIKE LIQUID!

A X1 bundle with Tomb Raider and Rise of Tomb Raider wouldn't be a bad idea.

... or a bundle X1/RiseTombRaider/Fallout4 (since Microsoft is promoting both those games).

christocolus979d ago (Edited 979d ago )

Lol. A bundle with RTR&F4 would sell out in mins. I think they'll be aggressive again this holiday,we'll see all sorts of crazy bundles&promos i.e Gears UE&Halo 5 Xbox One Bundle, Forza 6&Elite:Dangerous , Fable Legends,Rare Replay&Gigantic Xbox One Bundle, Fallout4&RTR Xbox One Bundle and the usual buy an Xbox One and get 2 games of your choice free(for a limited period).

KarmaV12979d ago

I'd buy a custom Xbox One bundle in a heartbeat. But I'm sure Halo will get that treatment instead.

But they just reached 900p LOL

MasterCornholio979d ago

Well they can always aim for a semi dynamic resolution to reach 1080P. That wouldn't be bad at all.

Svinya979d ago (Edited 979d ago )

The original Tomb Raider was 1080 on the X1 so have fun with your trolling.

MasterCornholio979d ago

You mean dynamic 1080P right?

Unless they updated the game to full 1080P later on.

GenuineGamer979d ago (Edited 979d ago )

Gameplay was 1080p native. Cutscenes were dynamic but you honestly could not notice the difference. Considering the state of xb1 SDK at launch its understandable and not a fair representation of the actual HW capabilities.

NatureOfLogic_978d ago

@GenuineGamer, So 1080pr. Lol, ok.

SlapHappyJesus978d ago

So many on this site give gamers a bad image. You count among the ranks.

All those sdk updates are paying off

GenuineGamer979d ago (Edited 979d ago )

Yeah man xb1 was hampered by its premature software compared to ps4 at launch giving a false image of being weak in comparison. Xb1 and ps4 are practically identical in HW capabilities they just get things done in different ways.

Glad games are starting to come out and prove this now.

Tomb raider is beautiful.

MasterCornholio979d ago (Edited 979d ago )

"Xb1 and ps4 are practically identical in HW capabilities they just get things done in different ways. "

They are not equal in power though. The PS4 is slightly more capable which is why it had less issues hitting 1080P than the XB1 does.

IrishSt0ner979d ago

Yea very true, same CPU, same GPU technology, same x86 architecture. PS4 does have more raw power, coupled with the concrete API made it look like the XBO was much weaker. If we were comparing within PC benchmarks they would be considered to be at the same level.
