Can the PS3 do any better than Killzone 2 in terms of visuals?

Gamer.Blorge:

"Killzone 2 is now out there on the streets, although I'm not playing it for the reasons outlined previously. It is regarded, by many, as the best-looking game ever to have been released, be it on PS3, any other console, or even the PC. But is this is, the best the PS3 can do? Or is there more to come in the years ahead?

I may have decided to avoid Killzone 2 for a month or so, but that doesn't mean I'm not impressed with the game, at least visually. Mike has previously stated that it's the best looking game of this generation, even surpassing the PC eye popper that is Crysis. And on the evidence I've so far seen, he's not far wrong."

Wait you until you see Uncharted 2 this year and lets not even mention GOW III oops I did already

MasFlowKiller3426d ago

Its hard to believe right?

but ps3 games are only going to get better.

remember Uncharted 1 was a first generation game and its still one of the best looking game this Gen.

XGRaViSmOrSX3425d ago

exactly were only gonna see it get better on first party.

Uncharted 2 and GOW3 are going to push the bar higher IMO

GWAVE3425d ago

In some ways, upcoming games that we have already seen such as Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, and God of War III surpassed the graphics in KZ2 (in SOME ways, mind you). And let's not forget that inevitable Team Ico game still being developed...

Awookie3425d ago

Uncharted is my absolute favorite game this gen animation, story, atmosphere are top notch I cant wait to play the next one.

andyo133425d ago

has graphics better than gears of war 2, i saw the comparison and uncharted blows gears out of the water in the screens. but in motion it blows it out of the universe with its dynamic weather system and clothes that get wet realistically. Infact the movement of the trees are more realistic than in crysis, difference is you can't cut down trees in uncharted but still the trees move very realistically

MNicholas3425d ago

because Killzone 2 is already doing so much more than any other game in just about every technical category, it's hard to see a massive improvement.

However, I can see a game with a lesser scope, which does not need to simulate all out warfare on such a massive scale, cutting back on some of the outright extravagent things that Killzone 2 does just to show off how much better it's engine is (like glowing embers from explosions bouncing realistically around the environment while casting light on objects) and emphasizing other areas that may result in an overall visibly better looking game.

I may have decided to avoid Killzone 2 for a month or so, but that doesn't mean I'm not impressed with the game, at least visually!

really?

ok let me just say like most storys posted on n4g i didnt read this! Mainly because i dont read many sites outside 2 or 3...and even then i dont really read them. I like podcasts

so your going to jump online with ppl that have learned all the maps and have ranked up for a month already?

ANYWAY
can the PS3 do any better? What a STUPID QUESTION

Killzone will be top 10 for PS3 exclusives even after 5 more years...right now its maybe #1 even thou i think MGS4 really looked awesome! I also think Uncharted looks and is looking awesome...

it might be the best looking FPS on PS3 for a couple years BUT SOMEONE will top it

Freak of Nature3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

Yes that is totally correct.I agree!

Plus I think that overall "style" may figure in on something "looking better",plus peoples taste on different genres,etc,etc...

In the end games like Killzone 2,the next Team Ico game,uncharted 2,GOW3,may all be true "bar raisers"but in different categories...And more stylistic games like whatever Media molecule comes out with next, or the next ratchet and Clank game can be genre re-defining" games eye candy wise within a more toonish/pixar direction.......

Bloodwar3425d ago

this will remain a 3 console generation. The 360, PS3 and Wii all have something that separates it from the others. Even if Wii only gets the casual market and has double the userbase than the PS3 and 360 combined, the PS3 and 360 will continue to flourish because of the core gamers like myself and many of us here on N4G. Kudos to all of you. =)

May all of the consoles win this generation. And PC. =)

Le Idiotce3425d ago

when the game has already been played for 3 days or so and around 99% of the people who played it, rate it higher than Crysis.

ilemon is furthermore completely wrong on how KZ2 is only confined to small rooms and corridors. His ridiculous claims has blown his cover and that he has not played the game at all and that he doesnt know what he is talking about and that he is a 360 fanboy bashing the game.

Because had he played KZ2, he would have known that the single player is hardly confined to a room and does not consist of merely shanty town. In fact, he is owned.

You can cut down the trees in the level where you're on the .50 on the back of the jeep... that part was so fun.

kparks3425d ago

This is how i feel about the game ill get alot of disagree for this.. but it didn't amaze me sorry... WOW it has good graphics and it also has a controller lag that i noticed and awkward X Y AXIS sensitivity!!!

mfwahwah3425d ago

@1.7

"Mainly because i dont read many sites outside 2 or 3"

Why don't you just stay at those 2-3 sites instead going to N4G then? O.o

anytime soon. I own both systems, am far from a fanboy. I put the game in for the first time this morning. and it made my head hurt it was so hi def. I had to put it down. Gears looks good. Crysis looks DAMN good, but you have to put a ridiculous amount of money into a PC graphix card to get it running smooth, but for $400....KZ2 is flawless.

For everyone who said the E3 2005 trailer wouldn't match the game....its okay to take your foot out of your mouth.

Obama3425d ago

Crysis looks great but in motion I think killzone 2 wins.

iLemon3425d ago

You could run Crysis on a 200 dollar card if the Feild of View was as small as Killzone 2. It is like your soldier has no peripheral vision and only one eye. Eveything else is great but the FOV is annoyingly small.

XLiveGamer3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

I have a few questions for you:

What the hell?

Are you drunk?

Killzone 2 better than Crysis?

Do you even own a good PC with a 8800GTX?

Can you please find somebody with a 200 Series nVidia GeForce Card and pay attention?

Hey Crysis its not the new kid on the block here its Killzone 2 but the old joe its still kicking his ass ! lol

Traveler3425d ago

Killzone 2 looks better than Crysis in some ways and Crysis looks better in others.

pwnsause3425d ago

Theres something that Killzone 2 does that Crysis doesn't do. Animations. Can a enemy get killed in a dramatic fashion when he gets shot in Crysis? don't think so.

MNicholas3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

does a lot of things well, even a few things better than Killzone 2. However, Killzone 2 simply has a hell of a lot more going on on-screen. For example the Cell processor can simply handle vastly more dynamic objects than any desktop CPU. The deferred rendering engine also enables things like hundreds of real-time dynamic lights. Polygon counts are also superior to Crysis (in fact many console games push more polygons than Crysis!). The hit response on dynamic, AI driven, moving objects using animation blending is quite a bit more impressive than anything in Crysis (or, for that matter, any other game). The list could go on.

iLemon3425d ago

has alot going on screen. but the majority of the maps seem to consist of small rooms, corridors, and stairs. I have never seen such restrictive map design in an fps. at any given time you can't see 85% of the map in multiplayer. I think this is how they maintain frames.

XLiveGamer3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

@ iLemon 2.7
You understand this sh!+

@ MNicholas 2.6 "For example the Cell processor can simply handle vastly more dynamic objects than any desktop CPU"
¿You are not including the Intel i7 CPU on that right?

Traveler3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

Not true. There are some absolutely huge vistas and open areas in Killzone 2 and the game still runs beautifully.

Your comments reveal that you guys haven't even played the game.

Le Idiotce3425d ago

ilemon and xlibvegamer are obvious 360 fanboys in defensive mode trying to convince us how KZ2 does not look better than Crysis
when the game has already been played for 3 days or so and around 99% of the people who played it, rate it higher than Crysis. Yes, KZ2 looks better than Crysis. In your face.

ilemon is furthermore completely wrong on how KZ2 is only confined to small rooms and corridors. His ridiculous claims has blown his cover and that he has not played the game at all and that he doesnt know what he is talking about and that he is a 360 fanboy bashing the game.

iLemon3425d ago

I haven't played any single player. I never play any FPS single player. And up until last night EVERY f$*@king game I played was one of three small maps. I guess it was just some weird coincidence. Since then I have played some beautiful outdoor maps that are very impressive. I really like the one that is like a mars volcano.

MNicholas3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

is just a hyper-threaded 4 core CPU. The slowest version costs as much as a Wii and the top of the line model costs almost as much as three PS3s!

PC and Console CPU floating point performance specs (source: Beyond3d):

Xbox XCPU 733mhz: 1.5 GFLOPS
PS2 Emotion Engine 300mhz: 6 GFLOPS
Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz: 6 GFLOPs
Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz: 7 GFLOPs
Intel Pentium 4 670: 7 GFLOPs
Intel Pentium D 840: 13 GFLOPs
Intel Pentium D 955: 14 GFLOPs
Intel Pentium D 965: 15 GLOPs
Intel Core 2 X6800: 23 GFLOPs
Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700: 43 GFLOPs
Intel Core 2 Quad QX6850: 48 GFLOPs
Intel Core 2 Quad QX9770: 51 GFLOPs
Intel Core i7-965 3.2Ghz: 51 GFLOPs
Xbox360 Xenon 3.2Ghz: 77 GFLOPs
PS3 Cell 3.2Ghz: 179 GFLOPs

Nvidia's website backs up those numbers as well. Let's throw the i7 a bone and do the old hyper-threading spec bonus of 1.5x. That leaves it at just over 75gflops.

In optimized applications (like video games), the Cell outperforms these other processors by an even larger margin because it's unique architecture allows considerable fine tuning. Feel free to visit IBM's website to learn more.

iLemon3423d ago

All those gflops are great but ps and xbox are limited by old video technology. It doesn't matter how many gflops you have on paper if after many years you can only squeeze out killzone @720p and only 30fps.

cliffbo3425d ago

of course it can do better... take any second year PS2 game and compare it to GOW1

reaferfore203425d ago

Compare TimeSplitters (launch game) to Black or KZ1.
