White knight chronicles to run in native 1080p with FF XIII image quality

Here is what Dengeki scans of WKC say-

-First RPG on the market to be native 1080p
-Storyline quality on par with that of DQ series story lines
-Image quality approaching that of Final Fantasy
-Aspects reminiscent of Monster Hunter

The story is too old to be commented.

{Thank you level-5 for this excellent ps3 exclusive,I will import it from japan come december}

Bill Gates3559d ago

You see BABOONS, this can ONLY be done on the PS3...AHHAHAHAHAHHAHA

pwnsause3559d ago

Well this is truly megaton.

cahill3559d ago

It could exceed 2m according to some analysts at NIKKEI
I think WKS will be bigger than FF13 but not as big as FF13 versus

jaysquared3559d ago

Well it better run at 1080p native after 2 years worth of delays. Wasn't this game suppose to be a launch title for the PS3 and still now out.

n4gzz3559d ago

this game really excites me.

TOO PAWNED3559d ago


Lets not overhype it. Dont give a chance to you know who later to say but but but...
WKS is new IP and especially in Japan it is hard for new IP to break into the market. For example amazing Rogue Galaxy sold only 400k in Japan, lifetime! And RG in my book is better than DQ8 that sold over 2 million in Japan, japanese are very strange so go figure....

That said i still expect WKS to be big in Japan and in first week i expect between 300k-500k. Life time it should get over 1 million but it will take some time. Of course it depends if Sony will bundle it as they should.

sonarus3559d ago

I have been hyping this game alone for almost a yr. Glad to see some of you guys are joining the band wagon:D

I really didn't expect close to FFXIII visuals or 1080p native but with the one yr delay it really looks like level 5 is going all out with this. The game creator already said its the greatest title he has ever worked on and he thinks it will spawn many sequels. Considering level 5 makes ace JRPG's for them to say one is the greatest they ever made means its going to be awesome

This is the JRPG to get. The only JRPG that can stand on the level of WKC is FF at this point. Can't wait to play

Blasphemy3559d ago

This game was just announced last year with a 2008 release date. I love how people just make stuff up.

season0073559d ago

LOL yeah totally agree

Every single title on PS3 is delayed Launch Title ROFL>....

I have seen people saying things like..."Isn't it supposed to be launch title?" for like couple hundred times...

B-Rein3559d ago

WOW, WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!1 I cant wait for this the the 1st true next gen rpg, OWAH!!!! I jus GOTTA LOVE LEVEL 5, CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!

(sori for caps in jus over reactive rite now over this game)

badz1493559d ago

this game makes more promises and I really hope that these are true! here's hoping for the best RPG ever!

sonarus3559d ago

Actually back at TGS last yr the developers hinted they were aiming for an early 2008 release in Japan...guess it wasn't so early afterall:)

And the game WAS NOT announced last yr, it was announced before PS3 launched but it was not supposed to be a launch title

psycho3603559d ago

@cahill / tanod
"I think WKS will be bigger than FF13 but not as big as FF13 versus "

Why bigger than FF13 (cuz its also on 360) and not as big as FF13 versus (ps3 exclusive). Did i miss anything else ?

TheHater3559d ago

Dude, I have been more hype for this game since the Tokyo Game Show in 2006. I been saying a long time now, that I want this game more than Final Fantasy and have been getting a lot of disagree for than.

juuken3559d ago

Lol @ jaysquared.
Someone needs to do a bit of research before they scream 'delay!!!!'.
Oh man...this game...I'm speechless again.

gaffyh3559d ago

That sounds awesome. Lol @ jaysquared's wrongness

sonarus3559d ago

@hater i guess i wasn't alone afterall:)

I too want this game for than FFXIII and versus. I honestly think level 5 is going to do something amazing

Saigon3559d ago

thats all i could say...

Homicide3559d ago

Cahill, you're so freaking delusional. WKS is not going to be as big as FFXIII. Versus won't be as big as FFXIII. No level-5 game, except the Dragon Quest game, has sold over a million in Japan.

Homicide3559d ago

Wow, I just lost a bubble for speaking the truth. Alright FFXIII sucks because its on the 360. Versus and White Knight Chronicles are the only AAA JRPGs this gen.

Overr8ed3559d ago

yay 1080p! first RPG to have that res, Level 5 should be proud. And that is the power of the Ps3 when people take their time.

Marquis_de_Sade3559d ago

Homocide showed just how lame you guys are. Im amped for this game, but better/bigger than final fantasy 13? come off it xD

theusedfake3559d ago

I can't wait, it looks completely amazing

Panthers3559d ago

not one disagree. That is surprising with over 30 agrees.

Montrealien3559d ago (Edited 3559d ago )

How is this a megaton? The PS3 has been out for 2 years now, games should all run in native 1080p, like I was promised by Sony. It is the more powerful of the two real current gen consoles.

I can't wait for this game though, just finished Rogue Galaxy last week, really looking forward to this one, an it's nice to know the game will look great in full 1080p.

prowiew3559d ago

This is good news. Too bad my hdtv is not 1080p. Anyway, I want to see more of this game. It looks interesting on tgs.

only possible on PS3

also Wipeout HD is being released tomorrow

please dont forget it --It runs at 1080p native at full 60 fps

Statix3559d ago

I'm really trying think of why the 360 doesn't have many 1080p games, while the PS3 has a good number of them now. While I'm pretty certain the PS3 is the stronger system overall, with more performance potential, one common line of thinking out there is that the 360 has stronger GPU component, and that it's generally the easier system to develop for. At least that's one line of thinking.

yanikins1113559d ago

"light our darkest hour...."

If i got your av right....

StephanieBBB3559d ago (Edited 3559d ago )

If im not entirely mistaken I recall reading somewhere that the 360 can't have fullHD resolution due to that it doesn't have the support for it. it has 1.2 hdmi hence the ps3 has 1.3 and that makes so the ps3 can display 1080p and the 360 only can upscale 720p to fit 1080p monitors but the pixel count is still the same as 720p.

not sure as I said before but I know that the 360 can't scale trueHD 1080p. Microsoft is tricking people in to thinking that it can just so it won't look "inferior".

NanoGeekTech3559d ago (Edited 3559d ago )

You made a great point...agreed.

edit: Thanks to the person....using my old avatar..

Gorgon3559d ago

Why don't you people just go here and actually learn something about the resolutions on both the 360 and the PS3:

tk3559d ago

It is because of tiling and the size of the edram. Fast - but not big enough to handle 1080p. XB360 will be generally better is some resolutions when the edRAM can be leveraged - which mostly is if I remember correctly just a little bit under 720p.

Gorgon3559d ago

True, but the PS3 isn't better either. Check the link I gave above.

Blakzhuk3559d ago

I thought you were playing Wipeout HD now Cahill?

"cahill - 3 hours ago
Don't track
5.4 - Ariexv aka Inyourmum aka Gam71
Oh well Neogaf finally banned you

Now u troll our website


I am playing Wipeout HD as we speak . It is better than all games on LIVE. It runs at 1080p at 60 fps "

3559d ago
Montrealien3559d ago (Edited 3559d ago )

And let's also not forget Cahill, Buzz! Quiz TV is in native 720p, why is that? And you not making any good points, your just proving you have PS3 underwear and can read ;D

oh, and what's your PSN? I would love to do laps around you in Wipeout HD tomorow.

DJ3559d ago

It can only run at that resolution at 30 Frames Per Second. HDMI 1.3 (which is what Sony put in the PS3) can do 1080p at 60 Frames Per Second, which is what we see in titles like GT5: Prologue and WipEout HD.

The 360's ED-RAM chip is more of an offset in order to offload bandwidth from PCI Express. However, it can only handle 480p with 4x Anti-Aliasing, or 620p with 2x Anti-Aliasing due to its small size of 10MB. 720p frame buffers are 13MB, and 1080p frame buffers are 32MB. Thus, tiling comes into play and the benefits of ED-RAM are lost. The degree depends on how many tiles have to enter and leave ED-RAM before post-processing is applied.
