PCGH interviewed one of the developers of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. The interview focuses on technical questions and the engine. One of the answers indicates, that the game might look better on the PC than on the consoles.
That'd be nice, but I wont get my hopes up.
Why not? Games automatically look better on pc due to higher resolution support. And that's assuming that the developer doesn't throw in a few pc-specific features...
"Better textures, effects and resolution on PC?" Removal of the question mark is all thats needed.
lol seriously, I don't know why people insists consoles have the best graphics. Especially people in the gaming business, it shouldn't be a surprise...ever.
duh pc games look better than consoles lol the next gen console still won't have a game that look like cryiss
devs over the past 1-2 years have used the 360 version as the lead and just got the other versions of games to match it, not adding anything for the PC version, so the textures probably wont look that different, neither effects and all of that. Especially looking at how Monolith seemed to have abandoned PC gaming, or Warner Bros have made them abandon it.
Too bad that I read in a preview (don't remember where, I'll look for a link) that there will be PC-specific enhancements. The game also has no lead platform, each version is being developed specifically for each platform.
Too many developers have said that and then just never delivered. When push comes to shove and a release date nears, the PC version is usually the first to get cut back.
I don't think Monolith have abandoned PC gaming. Their most recent game, Condemned 2: Bloodshot, was console exclusive but that was most likely a publishing decision on Sega's part. All of Monolith's games before that have been on PC. Monolith didn't even make F.E.A.R. for consoles--a third-party studio was hired to port those. I expect F.E.A.R. 2 to be pretty great on PC and have it be the definitive version.
Sega? Considering Stormrise, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Alpha Protocol, and the Aliens RPG are all PC/PS3/360 I doubt it, but who knows.
Funny how their only exclusive is Empire: Total War. And its only on... Oh, wait, that contradicts your point... ;)
Ha. Umn. Duh?
When i look at killzone 2, all my fears are answered. And textures is old skool. It's all about shaders, parallax mapping etc. It should have a higher rez on pc. But whereas consoles use tv's which are upscaled anyway, or you just get the console to upscale if you wish. Resolution is great, but it does not make or break a game. And to run crysis full up, you do need a high end card and processor. But other then crysis, what games are currently pushing pc's? Even the crysis devs are going to console, because that is where the money is made.
The hell you say? ::serious eye roll:: Whoever doesn't know this needs to resign from gaming right now.
...and the cow goes "moo".
"PCGH: If there will be a special built for the PC what technical feature can't be realized with the console version or in other words are there any features the PC is the ideal platform to develop for? John O'Rorke: The main limiting factor that we run into on the consoles where the PC can really shine is in the memory available as well as the space on the DVD." WTF, I guess they didn't utilize or forgot about Blu Ray? Here comes another crappy port, great.
