Amazing footage of what the PS3 is capable of using CRI's new development technology.
it makes me say: wow
AmaZing!!!!! i think all Developers shold use this engine
..are people STILL showing Tech Demos for PS3. Shouldn't they be well into showing new GAMES?
Because this is a developers conference maybe? It's not for us folk to find out new games really...that's E3. ANd I have to say wow...showing developers this for the ps3 gets them to go...sh*t I want to make a game on the ps3 and now I have some tools to do it! Yes let's go!. And that;s the point. Wish there was mor eto see:(
In other words game developers get together and show off tech demo's of what they have been working on for software/middleware that developers can take advantage of in creating games. Its not E3 or TGS where its designed to showcase the actual games developers are working on.
Maybe you guys are right, but it just seems odd that most of the 360/wii tech demos are actual games. I don't mean any ill will to Sony, just thought at this point even at a dev. conference, the engine makers would be better served showing what an actual developer is doing with the engine. Kinda like gears,star wars,Indiana Jones,crysis,fable and so forth. But I may be misguided. Sorry.
Like Factor 5 did with their Lair lecture?
In a way I agree...but I think really they need to be getting devs onboard. And the main critism of the ps3 was that it was hard to develop for and so by showing them how they have these tools, it will soften the blow. Also what's coming from GDC is filtering very slowly...I think there's another day. So lets wait and see.
looks very nice, I wonder what game it could be or which studio is using their engine.
Suddenly all those claims of "half the texture ram, weak gpu, and not optimized for games" seem absolutely hilarious.
Could not agree more .
yo wasup n4g!!i'm new 2 dis web site.lately ive ben hearin alot of good news abou da ps3 (wich makes me a proud owner).1 of those news iz dis video SIMPLY AMZING.

ps. loving your enthusiasm
i have no idea what you just said, but welcome and yes, the ps3 kicks a$$
http://secure.hop.com/index... Go there now with no delay
hey.. datroof3. no offense... still love your enthu though. just didn't understand what you wrote, that's all. q:
Could you not use my name in vain ;)
really short and really amazing.
DAMN waiting 3 days in the cold, cold nights is starting to really be worth it.
looks final fantasyish
looks really good by the way
what the heck i only have 3 bubbles??????since when. who has the big diapers to give me (-)s hmmmmm speak up
chitown why do you have a lakers icon as you're avatar. as a Chi-town native i have to tell you thats a no no.
back on topic....man this looks cool
you probley clowned on TheMart. I did that twice and two of my bubbles are now gone.
DAMN I said his name, next time you see me am only gonna have 2 bubbles.
You get three bubbles because you said something good about the PS3. The people here don't like that. Oh, and I found out it's not N4G's fault either. It's based on the OTHER USERS giving you bad feedback. It's not up to the administrators.
Oh...and datroof3. Welcome to the site...but holy CRAP was that hard to read! If ur from the ghetto...i still don't care...you HAVE to go to school legally...so try somethin' else. *dropping out's not an excuse*
This actually looks like the Ratchet and Clank demo they showed at TGS this year. I wonder if insomniac will use this. Most websites say R&C looks outstanding now. Hm...
I'm so freakin' tired and we have QUARTER EXAMS at my highschool. It sucks hardcore.
How about just being uneducated, why does everything these days have to be labeled as GHETTO? That indicates someone who was part of the holocaust or someone from a predominantly minority or black neighborhood. If he is uneducated to you then say so but to say that someone is GHETTO is not cool. I have been to the GHETTO and its not a place to be taken lightly, it should be considered a tragedy of modern society. Get educated bro.
On a related topic this is really cool looking. To all the people who have come and will come on this message board saying that it isn't footage of a game think of GDC as a physics convention where the finished product is one thing but how you got there is most important. All this will translate into better more easy to create games in the future. Sony has heard the complaints and is ready to deliver.
Because he is spamming. For instance he just triple posted except using all his bubbles to actually make a point.
we're having a good time!
Looks good though
Dude we know it's not cgi as it is a tech demo for developers. That's a great compliment to the engine and ps3 if you htink it looks like cgi. That's great.
I'm not buying the old "PS3 is hard to develope for" rant anymore.
With tools like this theres no excuses for passionate devs not to get top shelf results. Look at what a tiny little dev team did with LittleBigPlanet with nothing more than passion and buckets of creativity. My new favourite Most wanted title.
off topic but interesting avatar...
looks almost as good as 5th element.
yeah, was my 1st thought.
wow i cant wait to see what the games are going to look like thats developed for this.
That headline is just plain ol' misleading.
CRI Middleware develops the high-quality video and audio codecs - CRI Sofdec and CRI ADX. Both have been used in over a 1000 titles, including hits: Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack, Sonic Heroes and Mortal Kombat: Deception.
For 1080P hi-def movies on the PS3 and 720P Xbox360 our quality is unrivaled
im i really dont understand the whole bubble thing some one wanna explain
the bubble system is easy to understand:
act like a fanboy = lose bubbles
post with common sense (can still be biased) = keep bubbles
Add intelligent comments on all platforms - extra bubbles
I lost a bubble, gained abubble and then lost a bubble again all in half a day. I think my bubbles moved more than I actually made posts today.
that was nice vid. short but get the point out. hopefully developers start using this or something. can't wait to see more potential coming from the ps3.
all in real time...? wow! things we normally see as cut-scenes can be rendered in real time. simply wow!
Pretty stunning material! Sony is revving up the engines as it seems from GDC. I own a 360 and PS3. I never had any validating reasons to own a PS3 right at release, except for the bragging rights. Especially after becoming acquainted with the 360 for a long time coming as well. I've always believed, don't get me wrong, but now I can see the light.
the demo looked cool (bit short though), good to see sony have finally pulled their fingaz out.
That looks hot
pc isnt fast enough to show this video ...
my pc isnt hd ready :P
does somebody have the link in no hd?
I am almost positive Sony showed this clip before in another "tech demo."
Personally, I don't see anything in that tech demo that could not be done on the 360.
I was actually more impressed with that new "3-d" side scroller, albeit a tad interested in the actual gameplay, as it had no real enemies.
"Personally, I don't see anything in that tech demo that could not be done on the 360."
- this wasnt the topic... -.-
meri_jaan “- this wasnt the topic...” tell that to the PS3 fanboys posting anti xbox stabs all over this page.
Whats everyone raving about, some flying CGI ships..it looks kewl and all but jeeze I wanna see upcoming games, not promises about what games might look like. I really don't go goo-gaga anymore for these demos, unless its real-time game fottage. Something having potential never means it actually meeets it.
These guys have worked on alot of titles, so thats saying something. I get esxcited about GAMES, GAMES , GAMES...anyyone can work on a 3 month, 1 month, super tech, 1 min CGI demo. This news is great for developers at aw with different engines.
You sony boys love useless demos.
Define "useless" here. Does it mean, it bothers me that the PS3 is obviously capable of more than my console and I'm upset? Because I honestly don't see how this technology is useless.
what is all the excitment about u have been seeing silly videos like this on pc's now for donks, forget about the visuals u need full games and also what makes good games even better is good gameplay calm down u GEEKAZOID NERDZ
has anyone heard any truth [no rumors] when the newest firmware update
1.6 [march 8th] is[was] going to happen on the ps3
The grafix are okay but, there doesn't seem to be any physics, advanced shadows or anything that's really processor intensive or gpu intensive so ram is no longer an issue, all the ships move in straight lines fairly slowly and so camera does too so this doesn't justify any power to the PS3 and i still think 360 would handle better with it's advanced gpu overall it had some potential there.
you SDF are feeling real smug now huh?
WTF is a SDF??? Put me on.
I'm guessing Sony Dumb F@#ks.
Do I get the prize?
I agree, I don't know what all the Ohhhing and Ahaaaing is about. For all we know it's CGI. I think Sony fans need to start showing some respect for themselves and start demanding real tangible results from Sony for their purchase instead of licking up the sh1t Sony's been feeding them.
Guys I'll tell you why it isn't CGI. Because this wasn't made to wow consumers...this was made for the Game Developers conference, for Developers to see what they can do with this new tool for the ps3 and to get them on board to show how the new tools can help them achieve results. This is a clip of many demonstrations they have been showing.
Sony Defence Force.
To all You young, willing recruits, sign-up here hehehee
But yet this is being shown all over the internet where consumers can see. How much would you like to bet that "consumers" have seen this tech demo more than publishers?
X_BOX FORUM RAIDERS....
hmmm whats this... good news about the PS3.
X_BFR to the rescue.
Just wow i can't wait for developers to use this.
I want to see actual games looking like that.
i do think these things are great, but im scared that if they make games in such beauty im sure the price tag will go up too.
i will own all consoles, yess i have the money for that....but i dont have the money for buying games evrytime i feel like: I WANT THAT GAME NOW.
that piece of tech demo looks amazing, but i also miss the side scrolling games :( XD( yeah ik old school )
BTW, this is all "pre-scripted" now show it with a moveable character and allot of particals and stuff like that then ill be jerking off ok?XD
I can't wait until Developers use this ENGINE its really awsome PS3 is Beast is just take longer to Tap its Power. Developers barely even touch the Power of PS3 i can't wait.
Gears of War - everyone remember the early pics of a Locust Grunt?
These tools are exactly what the PS3 needs - the tools/middleware to make game making easier - like what MS has done with the 360.
This is the first step - yes, Sony may currently be a bit behind in this area, but we will be seeing, or rather playing the fruits of all of this soon.
Its a great time to be a gamer, boys!

Why would they show a tech demo that isn't in game to developers? So it only means yes it is game graphics, and it is something they are probably gonna license out to make developing games easier.
It's a video/sound playback tool.
