"We also have 12 all-new high resolution screenshots from Killzone 2 straight from Sony which you can look at below. Feel free to drool, and don't forget to put a big huge mark on your calendar for February 27, 2009. "
KZ2s' textures are too blurry and low-res (generic FPS)
*Digitally slaps you*
*joins in the slapfest*
*Steals his wallet while he's getting slapped* ...*runs away*
*then fondles his misses* edit, ha menagatoi
*joins in as well* You must be kidding me.
Break his neck and extract and burn his cancerous brain! PLASTICA-MAN WINS FLAWLESS VICTORY F A T A L I T Y I couldn't join the dc universe in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe (You know plastic-man belongs to the dc universe) so I brought the kombat here!lol Hey guess where am I.
To be honest I don't see any sort of 'true' lighting in gears 2, it all seems so plasticy and fake, but the textures are impressive, yes, but I just don't think that the game looks that good Killzone 2 = WIN
You do have a point, I still can't see where KZ2 surpasses games like COD4 and Gears in graphics, some of the shots show awesome lighting but it seems like some of the earlier pre-pre-Alpha (ha ha I still laugh when I hear that term)screenshots had more detail, what happened?...I do agree with jmcorp that the texture work is probably biggest weakness for KZ2....ooops ahwww damm I know I'm going to get alot of hate mail from sony folks maybe lose a few bubbles but its true go back and look at some of the earlier KZ2 screenshots and also its easy to compare these current pics with Gears2 pics...in the end KZ2 still looks great, however I think Gears2 and COD4 looks a hair better, although again some of the lighting shots are really cool. http://www.thehdroom.com/Ki... http://www.computerandvideo... JOY
I kinda agree with the troll... There are some textures here and there that look flat like on this one http://www.thehdroom.com/Ki... -look at his shoes but that's just nitpicking. As an overall the game looks gorgeous.
To all the haters complaining about textures: http://www.psu.com/New-Kill... and http://www.psu.com/New-Kill... The list sill goes on also in the hd videos when they first unveil the mini boss with submachine gun, the floor shows the most advanced glowing bump-mapped textures You've ever seen. You can check
I played Both COD4 and GEARS 2 and those games looks gorgeous but forget about textures, forget about lighting, and forget about screenshots! When it comes down to it there is no game that looks better than Killzone2. http://www.wipido.com/video... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
i dont get it, this game clearly blows everything else out of the water and yet you all stick try to knock it down. I can understand trying to knock it on gameplay since we havent played it yet, but come on. The graphics will only improve on this so you all are just fooling yourselves.
If you think that well in my opinion I think you need glasses and you need to compare a couple of HD videos from the games. Killzone2 has amazing textures, animations, lightning effects and it generates an incredible amount of action on screen at a locked 30fps. BTW for those that are disagreeing with my previous comment I should ask why? I Just pointed that out and even showed the pic where you can see the flat texture I'm talking about. Is not like I'm saying that every texture looks bad just a couple of them but considering the games still has a couple of months for release there still time to polish it even more and fix this little details. Even with a crappy textures here and there the game still looks gorgeous and I already consider it the best looking game to date (on consoles). You guys are crazy or just don't know how to interpret what you read, I don't know... I'm starting to understand why everybody says that PS3 fanboys are the worst... They really are the worst but only the ones from this site. edit: If you don't just praise the game you get a bunch of disagrees and lose your bubbles. The bubble system clearly doesn't works for this site. A system like this would never work in a site that is as filled of fanboys and stupidity as N4G.
I've checked very carefully on both Gears2 and KZ2, KZ2 wins by a country mile, sorry guys you both FAILED!
Please keep in mind that these are a combination of single player and multiplayer texture shots. Let's use our brains when we start bagging on KZ2 using a 500mb multiplayer screenshot as an example. Please... I see too many ignorant posts to make a discussion even worthwhile. There is Single player preview code shots and there is Multiplayer Beta code shots. You can tell the difference so... fans of the opposing console please use discriminate examples instead of playing stupid.
I'm all for 360 and can't stand anything PS3 but honestly see this as the best looking shooter ever. 360 might have an answer for it later but for now we need to all just suck it up and give props were it's due. The game is looking freaking incredible and as gamers we should be happy to see this type of advancement over last gen. I hope other developers take note because GG has done an amazing job. 2009 might be full of surprises but seriously we need to quit hating on this game and leave the hating for the usual suspects.
Wanted to slap him as well but the line is too long now. Comment again. I want to slap you too...
Hmmm it seems my comment yeterday got a lot of disagree's.....as expected, anyway I tthink the pics speak for themselves so I stand behind my statement, reminds me of MGS4 first ingame screenshots you know the ones where the nanosuit and snakes hair were super detail then a month or 2 before release the graphics while still looked great had definitely been downgraded.....now sony loyalists call others blind if they don't believe K2 is the best graphics on a console...hey just look at these *New pics....and for those who say I shouldn't judge the game graphics based on these....every other game is subject to similiar comparisons.....Well the atrticle states very clearly these are "12 *New High Resolution Screenshots from Killzone 2 straight from *Sony" = why should I not believe these shots ARE meant to show off K2's graphics. JOY
whasup. Textures or whatnot can be improved. The full game is yet to come out. I remember the first shots i saw of the barbed wire coils a few months back and they sucked but little by little they polished so ill wait until the full game is released personally. Ill decide if its the best console game ever in Feb.
Gears 2 >>> Killzone 2
Average New York Crackhead's brain >>> You're delusional, bullsh*t-fed brain.
At least you got the acronym correct. Remember kids the real GoW is God of War.
I think every Xfag just commited suicide after the pure awesomness of Killzone 2. Also while pp, jmcorp, Jack Who, Grimlock, Sony Defence Farce, SONYSLAVE and Patchstation 3 take turns fuking Cliffy B up the arse we Sony boys and girls won't be mourning the day when the eXbox RIP in February.
With that name you're only recognizing his importance... I would feel flattered if somebody makes an account with the purpose of simply insult me, that means my opinion is really important to him.
It still looks remarkable as always.. Release the damn thing already!!
one of the only flaws so far is i didnt get to play beta. sony sucks. they hate me for some reason. any beta im excluded . must be because i said i own a 360
go to playstation.com and get an account, make actual comments that are sensible, and every once in a while they choose people to get into the GAP. Let's just say I got into a couple of things...
I can't believe this one game is going to make me pick up a PS3 sheesh. It's having that Halo effect which got me to try out Halo 1 and pick up an Xbox back in the day. These guys have gone all out to truly immerse and for anybody to miss out it will be ashame.
It looks like someone painted them.
Every time I see screen shots or video of this game, I am blown away. Coming from someone who started playing video games when Pong was popular, I find it so amazing to see how far games have come in 30 years. I remember the first time I saw Donkey Kong in the arcade and was so blown away because it looked like an actual cartoon. Killzone 2 is insane. I can't even image what video games will look like when my 5 year old is my age...
http://www.thehdroom.com/Ki... In-game facial animations FTW.
Good Lord, I want this game so badly. i hope they come up with a collector's edition. *-*
I hope they come out with a collector's edition too. One with a metal case with the Helghan insignia and comes with a highly detailed 12" Helghast figurine and a full scale model replica of the ISA's assault rifle. =D
Oooooh. * - *
...but I don't know what it will contain.
I thought those were cgi, but I know they aren't: http://www.thehdroom.com/Ki... http://www.thehdroom.com/Ki... http://www.thehdroom.com/Ki... Really awesome game
Second link... is that an arm I see flying off?
not only has this game passed many games to date in so many aspects, but it just keeps getting more and more like the vision of the 2005 E3 trailer. I am really blow away by this game... Be a Gamer not a hater... :-)
I wish more people would be as level headed as you. thanks bubbles for you. Comment 4 don't know how to make a 4.1
Bubbles for you too!
haven’t watched anything related to KZ2, to be honest these previews and videos ruin the game for you, they ruined Gears 2 and R2 for me, so from now on, no trailers for me The only time I am going to watch is when a game is being shown for the first time
I'd like to ignore these, too. Can't though. Too much pressure these days :-)
the amount of detail being shown is amazing.
GG is killing all the other devs on the Planet.. KZ2 looks amazing and this game is using 60% of each of the 4 and half out of the 6 SPUs thats available for game developing on the PS3.. jeez!!! and it looks this good with total destruction and deformation of surround, lighting. and Focused Blur that gives realistic blur to everything that moves in the distances immediate foreground, mid ground and back drops way in the distant horizons. and then the awesome bump mapping, animation system, and a.i system, and the every polygon texture id and then the astounding physics system. It's one beast of an engine that does all this on the fly and doesn't chug or lock up. the PS3 is a monster. Sony's exclusives show time and time again the PS3 has the Muscle to go toe to Toe with the 360 and above and beyond, it's even challenging Games like dues ex 3 and crysis on PCs... a game like this that runs so smoothly will all this going on screen with no stutter is simply amazing. it just blows my mind that 3rd party devs like quantic dream are doing a game that's also on the level of this game graphically but with less going on on screen. KZ2 is a beast, heavy rain is a Beast, Gt5 is a beast, and from what we are hearing God of War 3 is a beast... hell the PS3 is a beast. bring on the games that show the power. MGS4, uncharted, ratchet, HS, and GT5:p were all just a glimps the Sun will rise on KZ2 and basically shows that PS3 is teh most powerful Console ever made.
Everything really looks amazing with this game. The shots they are getting are just epic too. I hope when "we" get this game, we will be able to take shots like this..or even make videos.
Amazing..... I have absolutely no idea how they can keep up the Anti-Aliasing together with so much amount of detail in the Screens. There are no jagged edges that I can find.... Whatever magic GG has come up with, I didn't expect it so early in the PS3's life cycle.
- Models - Texture\Shaders(yeah, omg the gun, skin, clothing oh my - Scale - Lighting - Multiplayer - AI - Dynamics - Particles - Motion Blur(real time motion blur anyone? lol @ the unreal engine) - No install, Streaming game - Making everyone that talked [email protected]#$ about 2005 CGI trailer and Sony lying eat crow so the only thing that they can complain about is the orange helgast eyes. lol. Sony wsa right when they said it starts when they said they do, but damn. And as far as texture resolution goes, Yeah. Some game might have 1 texture that looks nicer than kz2.. but does it have : - Models - Shaders(yeah, omg the gun, skin, clothing oh my) - Scale - Lighting - Multiplayer - AI - Dynamics - Particles - Motion Blur(real time motion blur anyone? lol @ the unreal engine) - No install, Streaming game - Making everyone that talked [email protected]#$ about 2005 CGI trailer and Sony lying eat crow so the only thing that they can complain about is the orange helgast eyes. as well? no sir. No. And how often is anyone pausing the game to stare?
The screenshots from that older article about the ground textures impress me much more then the ones in this article. All this article shows is some pretty bland player model textures and models, although other sceenshots prove otherwise. Also, your list is kind of moot to Crysis, KZ2 is on a VERY small scale compared to Crysis where there are a billion things happening at once while still maintaining just as much detail up close as in the distance. I'm currently making my way through Crysis:Warhead( god like particle explosions) with my GTX 280 and 3.6ghz E8400, and I must say it's pretty damn epic. larger versions of my attached images in these links http://img108.imageshack.us... http://img123.imageshack.us... http://img129.imageshack.us... http://img225.imageshack.us... http://img214.imageshack.us...
Kz2 is the best looking game on consoles.
oh god.. give me this game now. i dont care if i have too many other games i havent even really touched yet.
but crysis on a $2000 pc looks better =)
Absolutely don't disagree at all.... that's what you get when you pay $1600 more. However, i recently read an article where Polyphony digital networked 6-9 ps3s together to run Prologue on a high res screen that was like 4x-8x the resolution of 1920 x 1080 at full 60FPS. Now my guess after reading about this is that a tandem (2) ps3 could potentially outperform most $2000 high end pc rigs. And if you could network 5 (what you'd you pay for $2000) it would definitely kill any PC in that price range. Sadly, there isn't such a solution, but polyphony's solution points to the possibility.
I can make it look better on a 1,000 dollar PC. You must not know where to shop :P
it was 4 PS3's showing 4x the resolution of 1080p at 60fps =)
Having this game to start off the new year is gonna be excellent. This and RE5 and Infamous right after should be one hell of a first quarter for PS3 fans that's for sure!
Certain games' visuals cannot be rightly judged from still images; Killzone 2 utilizes motion blur effects that do a lot where blurry textures are concerned and is only noticeable when motion images are viewed, not stills.
Go watch the new single player 720p videos if u wanna look at graphics.
jmcorp why come here to troll? You act like you're just making a real comment but you search out ps3 articles to trash them and it's just getting old after 2 years straight of it. If you don't like ps3 that's fine, everyone likes different things, but just ignore the ps3 news and move on please.
cant wait those screens are sexy
