Terrible graphics spotted. Ben Cadwallader of XboxOz360Gamer discusses the graphics of the upcoming Resident Evil game.
Personally I can't see all that much wrong with it myself. Somehow, I think 'some' people look way too closely at opening scenes like this hoping to spot some flaw. While the game its self will not consist of this as gameplay, I can't see how this will matter with regards to the "game" as such . . But I'm easily pleased.
Who the hell cares about that, it's probably just a 10 second cutscene of the intro of the game, who cares. when the game is released, it is still going to sell millions and probably be chosen for game of the year .....again. Oh! and BTW, thanks Xbox for bringing gaming standards down, if Resident Evil 5 was a PS3 Exclusive it would look beyond better than that. (cough cough look at Metal Gear Solid 4 compared to any Xbox game cough cough)
"Oh! and BTW, thanks Xbox for bringing gaming standards down, if Resident Evil 5 was a PS3 Exclusive it would look beyond better than that. (cough cough look at Metal Gear Solid 4 compared to any Xbox game cough cough)" Wow...watch me spin your post...you ready? Oh! and BTW, thanks ps3 for not being good enough and/or not having a bigger attachment rate to hold on to a series that use to be partly a Sony exclusive. (cough cough look at Halo 3 compared to how many people purchased Metal Gear Solid 4 cough cough) Hmmmm, Bioshock came out how long ago for the 360.......and the ps3 version is having problems with having the same quality....want to explain how the 360 caused a lower standard on that on? Ohh, and its not just a myth...because the company responded to complaints by ps3 owners. I say all this to say......unless you have proof that the quality will be dropped......stop blindly echoing the sentiments of others.
Lots of coughs there.
need a cough drop in here? I agree with XboxOZ360, if that's the worst of it... meh. Who care's? That certainly won't ruin my gaming experience with it by any measure.
I understand what you were doing there...and it was all well and good... ...but his post made logical sense. Yours did not. I don't, in any way, think the 360 is dragging this game down, but it's at least a possibility. If 2K can't figure out how to make a good PS3 port, it's their faults...not the PS3. Bethesda and EA Chicago figured it out. Why don't they just ask Insomniac for help? They even teach a free course to any developer willing to listen. The PS3 not being good enough or having the attach rate to hold onto the series thing...you are aware that Resident Evil 1, 2, 3, 4 and many side-story projects have released on Gamecube, PC, and Gameboy systems, right? Xbox is just getting it because Capcom likes to make money. The attach rate is the cause of gamers...poor gamers. We don't have money to buy 2 new games every week, trade them in, and buy 2 more. We are GAMERS! Do you understand this? Most Xbox gamers I know were given an Xbox with Halo by their moms and dads for Christmas one year and had no qualms about dissing the rest of the gaming world when they had JUST started getting into it. Am I wrong? Most Xbox 360 gamers are the same way. Other sources of income paid for the system, so they don't see a reason to stop buying games constantly and trading them in. Gamers keep games because they are good games...games that changed their lives...we don't just trade them in later because we needed that extra 10 bucks for Rock Band 3. Most real gamers aren't rich. What does that leave? Rich kids who are given everything. Does someone disagree?
To me the intro and that trailer has made me excited for RE5. The stuff that dissapoints me is demos of the gameplay. The graphics don't look like a 2009 game and none of the gameplay has been different compared to RE4 besides the coop which at this point it looks boring. It's not like we haven't played a coop storyline online before.
@ leon You contradict yourself in your statement. you say real gamers are poor, and most 360 gamers are rich spoiled kids. Then you say they trade in games cuz they need 10 bucks for rockband or whatever. If they were rich then why would they need ten bucks. Point is your boy got pwned, deal with it. not to mention your trying to imply that its better to not buy alot of games, and trade the ones you dont like for other games. just plain illogical. I guess its people like you that dont buy too many games keeping the ps3 down. I buy enough games to support my system, and I rent most games, but if i buy a game i dont like I trade it in, and im a real gamer.
What the hell are people expecting? Its not like multi platform titles set standards or anything. They dont. Far from it.
It's not really a matter of which system is gimping a game. If it's multiplat and it's not a direct port (at least from 360 to PS3 in most cases) it's going to reduce the quality of the overall game. Look at GTA4; if it had been an exclusive on either system it would have been a much better game. Instead Rockstar had to develop two separate versions of the same game at the same time thus reducing the quality of the game overall. ON TOPIC: BOB DOLE GETS WOOD EVERY TIME HE STOMPS ON A ZOMBIES HEAD! Just thought everyone should know that... wait that's not really on topic is it?? Ok Bob Dole's done.
You are saying that his post made logical sense that we should say that a game will be of lower quality because of it being release on the 360 as well? If that is the case..then why did you say this, "If 2K can't figure out how to make a good PS3 port, it's their faults...not the PS3." Which means it is not the xbox 360's fault....Capcom has the right to maximize RE5 for each respective console....if they choose not to do that, then it is Capcom's fault. Moving along...the rest of your post I have no idea what you are talking about. The logic in my statement is that clearly developers know which console gamers are willing to drop their money quicker on. Search the forums and see how many people are willing to buy the 360 version of a game over a ps3 version because of live...because of achievements, the list goes on.......so if ps3 had all this stuff on lock and had a clear advantage over the 360, with it showing more gamers using the ps3 just for gaming.........then the cost/benefit ratio would swing heavily for the ps3, which would give Capcom less of a reason to bring the game to the 360. Games that are released on both consoles often times sells better on the 360...so if Johover wants to blame the 360...lets go a little deeper and blame the ps3 for the things they did wrong...which would have companies opting for non-exclusive 3rd party games.
dude, halo was the same crapy game with more graphics, WHOO HOO! congrats on sales, OH! and BTW congrats on sales of Xbox 360s after the three rings of death WHOO!, yea. dude, Metal gear was about 32 gigs, xbox would NEVER see that in its lifetime. and if you want to talk about sales than look at gta 4 which sold more copies on PS3, or Madden 09 which sold more copies on PS3. sigh i could go on forever. ANYWAY bottom line, resident evil 5 is going to be a awesome game. i just had to talk back to a certain fanboy.

ANYWAY bottom line, resident evil 5 is going to be a awesome game. i just had to talk back to a certain fanboy." First off, if you think Halo is the same crappy game with more graphics then fine, that's your opinion. I could say "Well, Resistance 2 is the same mediocre Resistance with more graphics." or "MGS4 is the same old boring game with better graphics." but that doesn't make it right cause I said so. Number two, the typical 'RROD LOLOLOL ALL DAY LONG' thing. The newer 360s with the Japser or Falcon motherboards last almost as long as a PS3 or Wii would. Even then the RROD has nothing to do with the amount of sales. Number three, MGS4 almost used up the whole Blu-ray disc and Kojima had to cut some things to fit it all in the disc. True about the Xbox 360 not being about to use more than 9GB but it doesn't affect quality. Number four, GTA4 http://www.shacknews.com/on... Madden '09 http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... Please don't go on forever until you have some real argument. Don't come back to talk to a certain fanboy when you're pretty much a hypocrite. Apparently, "thanks Xbox for bringing gaming standards down" is nowhere close to a fanboy remark.
the graphics look awesome but to me this isn't a step forward. RE5 is basically RE4 HD with Co-op. the next generation of hardware means when enemies get killed there bodies stay there, they done bubble up and disappear, especially if you are a human being... for PS2, and Gamecube RE4 was exceptional and i knew of the PS2 and gamecube limitations preventing bodies from just staying there. this is next gen... games like Resistance and gears and Heavenly sword and Fable 2 have it where if an human dies the body stays there they don't just disappear. which was also why i was a bit upset with DMC4, because the creatures certainly had mass but disappeared into thin air, even after their elaborate death animation... It looks and plays the same way with just higher poly counts and better animation. and i'm sure it'll be the same for the next games that follow the series.
Capcom has yet to impress me this generation. They keep ruining (or at least hurting) what could be great games so far. Hopefully this game is clean outside of this.
from what i saw from the trailers and demo videos they do have the same movements as RE4 but hey, never know until the game is released. OH! and Master Debater, real simple, mind your damn business. A and B conversation C your way out.
Oh I'm sorry, did I prove you wrong? Didn't mean to, actually I didn't want to but almost everything that came out of your mouth and fanboyish and wrong that somebody had to correct you and shut you up. You're plain out embarrassing yourself.
Anybody who just engaged in that pointless discussion is not a real gamer... They are a fanboy.
lol resistance 2, halo lol no contest (graphic wise) (I didn't play resistance 2 yet). but whatever, nothing is gonna beat metal gear.
"lol resistance 2, halo lol no contest (graphic wise) (I didn't play resistance 2 yet). but whatever, nothing is gonna beat metal gear." Are you even listening anymore? Please stop you're making yourself look stupid now. I said your opinion is your opinion, and mine is mine. None of them are right. If my quotation marks in my examples didn't solidify that it was an example then I don't know what will. And you're calling other people fanboys? Please just stop and leave PS3 and 360 out of this topic. And BTW to the people up there that doubt multiplatform, multiplatform games can raise standards. Look at Assassin's Creed, Great graphics and ambience, it was just too repetitive. Other than that, there's parkour mechanics, the amazing storyline, the combat system, the graphics were astonishing on a HD set up. The draw distance was pretty damn far with no slow down. Resident Evil 5 is shaping up to be a great game, no matter what. So far it's my anticipated GOTY for 2009. Co-op Resident Evil? Count me in!
Back to the subject at hand, yes i think that the resident evil 5 trees might just be a small cutscene and not actually in the gameplay field. for example: in the trailer of star wars the force unleashed, while Darth vader is staring out the window into space, his right hand man comes up behind him. you could clearly see his arm going through darth vaders body but yet again.....it was only a cutscene. i also believe that it is going to be game of the year.
How does this bloggers opinion become news at 500 degrees? Fuq you fanboys drive traffic. No wonder N4G got bought out. $#!T. You guys do understand your all like little slaves paying N4G right. And yes Im jealous for not coming up with the site first.
Even if he agree's to your truce you're outta bubbles aren't you? Bob Dole pitys tha foo' wit no bubbles.
12/10 mate. Many of the comments that find fault with someone "picking" on "their" game do come from a disgruntled number of Sony supporters who solidly believe a developer should NEVER cross the fence, no matter what. Even IF their company is loosing money, even if their favoured developers is not selling the numbers needed to support the HUGE financial outlay they now incur with development of games that the fans DEMAND. Those developer should stay steadfast and not buckle and move across the floor and keep their stockholder happy, who will pull out their support if shares do not rise, but fall due to poor sales figures. Most definitely, Square Enix, Capcom etc should NEVER taint themselves such trivial matters, and be happy with a small attachment rate, while their "competition" has a solid 8:1 attachment rate and sell several million copies of their games to a huge userbase. Silly of them, after all, they will "disappoint their fans, who, by the way, are NOT buying the games in the numbers they need for said developer to survive . but what does that matter . . .Sony is god, and all else is trivial. 12/10 mate, good one. Bubbles for you !
Well it seems like he's outta bubbles and asking for truce, but if I don't truce it's an automatic win, decisions decisions.... AUTOMATIC WIN!!!! :)
"Number two, the typical 'RROD LOLOLOL ALL DAY LONG' thing. The newer 360s with the Japser or Falcon motherboards last almost as long as a PS3 or Wii would. Even then the RROD has nothing to do with the amount of sales." REALLY?? you have a time machine and went two-three years into the future?? How can you make such a bold claim like that? According to you not only has RROD been solved but now a 360 will last as long as a PS3? I love when FANBOYS call other people fanboys. It's just comical.
No I see what he means. Pretty stupid for a company to use this as their opening trailer type thing.
What do you see exactly? I'm looking at a desolate road in Africa. I don't see what's so shoddy, retro, "shocking", etc... My judgement of a game relies on my PLAYING THE GAME, not how a trailer at TGS opens.
Whoa! Nice find, im quite suprised to see those good old tree's in such a big title. But yeah its not a huge deal to see them in that big shot scene. But the tree's should have been rotated more so you couldn't see the X's
seriously after resident evil lost the zombies, i feel like im loosing interest in the series fast
Resident Evil 4 was a fine game, and this looks to be the best one yet. But you like what you like.
these trees would just be placeholders wouldn't they?
I used to be all about the resident evil series. I played 2 at least 27 billion times. But, nowadays, I just can't get into it. It lost it's flair with me. I hated resident evil 4 and most people consider it one of the greatest. I miss you resident evil, but I think we still need space!
Yeah, it's no longer a horror-adventure genre. It has become a pure action genre game. Yet, it's a great action game (talking about 4 and most probably 5) but for horror fans, the game has lost that touch to it which is sad.
I see typical Capcom graphics here. Which are lame. The whole thing is an eye sore, not just the red circles, guys. Look at it long and hard. The whole thing looks cheap.
Wait til you see the PS3 version hehe
You got that right, it'll look like donkey balls dunked in a cup of human $#*T. Sony kills me with the way they think. They thought by making a system so drastically different in memory, GPU and CPu power that developers would adopt it and love it and adorn it with praise and compliments and give it all these exclusive games, since Sony has been the lead dog for 10 years +... Boy did that back fire on them.
you really hate Sony. Let me ask you, did Sony steal your girlfriend? Why all the hate for a system you don't own? I don't own a wii but I don't go into forums and rag on it. You need to find another hobby. On track, the graphics look meh, but then again graphics don't mean squat if it plays like a dud. Far cry 2 instead for me
ive seen gameplay and it looked good to me, this might loook ok but the game looked good. should play good. most people dont get that ps2 was an inferior to xbox, but it won by throwing every game under the sun at the xbox. now 360 has adopted that strategy and it works for them, who knew gamers like having games to play.
@N4Flamers: "most people don't get that ps2 was an inferior to xbox, but it won by throwing every game under the sun at the xbox. now 360 has adopted that strategy and it works for them, who knew gamers like having games to play." - well first, most people do know that the xbox was more powerful than the ps2. second, PS3 is doing the same strategy as ever but they loose a little of third party support to the X360 because of the high price tag that caused that less people purchased a PS3. less user fanbase = less games; why? less money for the developers and with the increasing cost to make HD games third party's prefer to make game multi-plat. there are fewer third party exclusives games compared to last gen and that was made the PS2 to win over the past console war but this time around there are fewer but the X360 has the lowest price tag and there is were they got the edge over the PS3. my point with my argument is ^ that the X360 is not winning because of the games but because of the combination of games and price because most games these days are multi-plat and that means that both consoles have practically the same games. PS1 introduced Compact Disc as the media storage, PS2 introduced DVD as the media Storage and PS3 introduced BLU-ray disc as the media storage. Did you see the trend? Sony it's doing the same that have been doing since the first time they entered to the video game market. but now Sony knows that most third party's are going multi-plat meaning that they are coming to the PS3 too anyway and that is why they don't care as much as in last gen about them so now they are focusing in making their first and second party's stronger to try fallow the strategy you're talking about. Sony's trying to push their pricy console with exclusive games that as the word "exclusive" implies, you can't found them on other consoles.
Developers should have gotten behind the new architecture given what's possible on the system (Uncharted, R&CF:TOD, MGS4, KZ2, R2, and inFamous all say hi) but most freaked out and decided to take the easy way out and cop out behind "what! No same ol' same ol', I don't have to and YOU can't make me." Unfortunate but it's rapidly changing. Compared to what's coming out for PS3 this probably will look terrible so you're right about that when put into perspective.
this website has reached a new low .....
Bring the zombies back!!!!!!
He is nitpicking.
Must be the 360 version he refers to.
Nothing more to say.
That's just nitpicking on his part. The reason they use the "X" technique for the foliage is, 1) because it's a cutscene, and 2) the player doesn't ever get close enough to that part of the map/level to see that the foliage is "X-shaped" in the first place. No one's gonna notice this crap! Nor will anyone care.
Actually someone DID notice it and people DO care... so suck it
To specify, no NORMAL person, with anything better to do, would notice it and then whine about it. Does that clarify anything for you, Mr. "Suck-it?" What are you, a 13-year old, Degeneration-X fan?
OH NO NOT THE TREES!!!!!
exactly cause after all most people go around shooting trees not zombies, and i can't interact with trees I will be pissed!
Its was SH!T The roadside was the worse... LOL You know what i mean when you see it...
thats wacked ur bubbles be gone here have 1.
Not really sure what he's talking about. Sounds like he's just trying to make a name for himself.
if they r talking about the latest resident evil 5 trailer then they must be smoking da ganja that trailer looks amazing specially in HD
It was noted that the bushes and the clouds in Super Mario Bros. are the same sprite just different colors. Seriously, who cares? It's just to save from framerate issues since, like RE4, the cutscenes are in-engine. RE4 didn't have X-cut tree textures so the final version of RE5 I incredibly doubt will have them either. Quit crying, damn!
If it isn't going to be in the final copy, then why put it in a marketing preview? I like my cut-scenes to be good too. I'm pretty sure this game will aim up, when it is finally released.
i think the graphics are OK - nothing amazing but still very very good. looks like Infamous will be the next game with really good graphics. Destructoid's preview says: ... "so far, it's not a stretch to say that Infamous may be the best looking open-world game this generation" nice
What does this have to do with Infamous? GTFO.
The graphics are good enough for me. As long as the game is fun im going to get it.
This is the lamest "news" I have read on this site.
Oh God not this crap again. Gaming news sites are getting less and less hits because news is surface level reporting. Opinion about that news is what I like to read, whether I agree or not. It makes me think about the games, sometimes in new ways. It provokes debate, like this one has (though the boring 360 vs. PS3 stuff is just sad). You want news, just go to any news site and avoid N4G.
Another day...another post from a "newsworthy" blog. Seriously, the guy is probably 15, he has a decent looking blog, and it's posted as news. What is going on with this site??!!?!
it definately looks better than mgs4 no question
you guys will be shocked hold on the background foliage in gears of war are are are PLANES TADA. get a life ......
Good thing this has nothing to do with gameplay... Not too worried, the RE5 team is massive. They will keep fixing things. Yea I thought we were done with X trees though.
wow, human kind has hit a new low, is this a cheap shot at RE5? you do know EVERY CONSOLE GAME HAS BAD TEXTURES AND BAD OBJECTS HERE AND THERE, right? not everything can look as detail, it isn’t possible in todays fixed console hardware you idiot. MGS4 has them, Gears 1 and 2 has them, Halo 3 has them, every top graphical game has them. of course being a nit picky moron as your self you going to find some. we haven’t reached that level of hardware power NOT to have them. geezus, get informed. kids and attention seeking these days…yeessh
360 has really gimped this generation of games with its low powered hardware, no next gen disc media and no standard harddrive. Well Capcom are partially to blame also, they could have made it PS3 exclusive but chose to suck Bill Gates balls instead. I dont have much hope for FF13 either. The sooner MS leaves the console market the better.
