During a developer walkthrough at E3 a developer confirms the details.
Using all the SPU's and using all of CBE's power are two different things. My car uses all it's cylinders just idling, but it doesn't use them to max power until I'm in 7th at over 2800 RPM. ('97 3000GT VR4, yes seven gears)
I love how the title is misleading as well... The guys says it uses all of the processors, not processing POWER. In other words, they use the 7 available processors instead of 3 or 4. Who knows how much actual power theyre using.
..and nice analogy!
Are you really counting your 6th gear as 7th, since you're in a 6 speed manual with reverse? I'd say your wording is pretty "misleading" as well. Still a nice car though.
http://www.gametrailers.com... Holy cows, that demo they showed on stage during Sony's conference DOES NOT do this game justice. Look at these vids. Look at the textures. The skin of the cyclops. The detail of the characters and enemies. The SCOPE of the game. The textures in the cave. The water running down in the cave. The little details like the rats. HOLY SHIAT, this game looks FKING AWESOME. One of the best looking games and definitely does a run for best looking game of the year. I didnt think Killzone 2 could have a challenger but dang here are Uncharted 2 and God of war 3.
it doesnt matter how much power their using its how WELL their using that power.just like with the 360 no devs can say any machine is maxed out as there is allways a way to milk that little bit more
Exactly. Sloppy programming will "max out" any console quickly.
God of War 3 doesnt impresse!!! Uncharted 2 that yes use the max or almost of Ps3 ... Not god of War 3. On X360 i think the max will be Forza 3 in cars and Halo Reac in Action/Shooters...Alan Wake , Mass Effect 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction looks AMAZING aswell but i think Halo Reach and Gears 3 will rise the bar...
lol... You were unimpressed with the trailer.. you must be kiddin me. And they demoed the 720P trailer... when the game will be out, it will be at 1080P native resolution. The demo had awesome graphics. Just wait till you see Kratos riding and fighting on Titans and Hades and various other magnificent villas. Oh ya and that Gears 3 and Halo:Reach.... LMAO. Gears 3 will again be made on UE3 and will look like Gears 1 (OH ya and Gears 2 look like Gears 1... So in short graphically Gears 1=Gears 2= Gears 3...) and Halo: Reach is even funnier.... The 3rd came out at 620P resoulution and you suddenly expect the next one to trump 1080P title like GOW3.... Man fanboys sure are stupid these days.
i'm the only one that isn't empressed by gow 3 graphics ? it looks good but nothing really amazing .
but also what your game can do technically. But I agree with you on that but theres still 9 months to go, graphics will surely get better but as it is now I'm with you. I mean it looks good...but not amazing.
yes you are. GOW looks F'in awesome. Go watch the developer demo from E3 and watch the first 10 seconds where the demo screen fades into the actual gameplay. Look at Kratos and tell me he's not easily the best looking rendered videogame character ever. Drake does not look remotely as good as Kratos does. Now imagine that detail everywhere in the level in a HUGE game, with a far draw distance and a huge lava man crawling over the city. Yeah it's not impressive...not calling you a fanboy or anything but it's a technical marvel.
we still almost a year till the game is finished , plus if you watched the developers walk-through on GT , you would see how great and epic the scale of the game is , and the graphics are mind blowing considering all that is going on.. I think the graphics are great also...especially the scene when the Titans tries to attack Kratos and Kratos goes in for the kill and you see how detailed everything is from up so high in the sky , looking over all of Olympus.
looks better than all of halo series combined + gears
The game looks awesome if you ask me. Just look at the amount of things happening on screen... and there are still 9 months to go. Also, they demoed the 720P demo at E3... cause a question by G4TV about the 1080P native thing was asked to which the devs replied that they are still working on it... So that means that the final build will be better looking than the current one displayed. Frankly, the part shown by them didn't really have different colors to really judge it now. Just wait till different videos or trailer showing different places like Hades or back of Titans are shown.... I am sure the game will blow away any competition. Anyways, even of GOW3 came out with GOW2 graphics, then too it can kill any game even on a bad day. The Story and gameplay is just EPIC.... Graphics are just the icing on the cake.
@PS3Wii360 I thought I was the only one noticing that. God of War3 menu presentation is indeed in-game. That is F*ing awesome. I just couldnt believe what I was watching, the transition from the Kratos figure in the menu (almost CGI quality) to gameplay. Same graphics, all in-game.
Ok Kratos definately looks supergood. But saying Nathan Drake doesnt look remotely as good was very unnecessary. After all Nathan Drake is the most detailed character in any videogame to date with his 25000 polygons. Kratos is on a fine second place with 20000 polygons. But anyway, people complaining about Graphics in GoW3 really doesnt have a clue. Point me to 1 game that renders graphics at a similar scale as GoW3 without looking like sh1t in comparison. Infact there probably isnt any game with the same huge scale on the market that there is in GoW3, yet GoW3 graphics sh1ts on pretty much any other game on the market. And the game is supposed to run at 1080p. /bow Santa Monica.
The PS3 is far from being "Maxed Out" and there's plenty of optimizations that can be made. If Guerrilla said that they could get more out of the PS3 after the release of Killzone 2, then there's plenty of juice left in the PS3. Lately I've been seeing more statements on the 360's limits from developers than the PS3's limits though. If there's just ONE game to push the PS3 to new limits, TeamICO's game The Last Guardian is the game to do it, and anyone that's played ICO and SoTC will know what I'm talking about.
Actually the only developers i hear talking about using the full power of the PS3 is Sonys first party studio. Third party studios always talk about 360 being the machine that is maxed out.
If it's true, i'm not very impressed. The trailers and sreens look normal, there's nothing going on that I haven't seen done in other games. To think $ony spent $1 billion + ,on research and developement for the cell.....and these are the results. What a waste of money
You mean like the billion wasted to cover their hardware failures?
1.89 billion to be exact, call it 2 billion just cause of cheap faultey parts
No, I mean like $1 billion being spent and not seeing any advantages and/or results.
"No, I mean like $1 billion being spent and not seeing any advantages and/or results." please show me the results for microsofts 1.89 billion lol is the RROD problem fixed lol???? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! LOL
That money was used to provide a 3 year warrenty dumbass. And the 360 failure rate has dropped below 15% with the release of the newer models. PS3 on the otherhand, has a rising failure rate with YLoD and disc reading problems, not to mention corrupted HDD's. The 60gb model is now above the 15% failure rate mark....and rising. Go and check the official ps forums to see all the complaints. There are people getting class action lawsuits, against sony, over their poor customer repair service and their ignorance to the enormity of the YLoD defect.
-MoOkS- is high again.
Where are you getting these percentages from? They are beyond ridiculous. I know you are fighting a losing battle here, but to resort to making up statistics? That's lame. I found a forum post once on a 360 site encouraging users to get a playstation account to post on some failure rate poll. Now I know which topic they are commenting in. pathetic. The 360 failure rate is the worst failure rate in the history of gaming. The fact people continue to defend them is ridiculous. A few supposed ylod claims is nothing in comparison to just under half the userbase of a 30 million unit sold product (supposedly). The 360 was rushed to market, and it shows. Even if the RROD was fixed in the newer models (way too early to tell), there are a great number of other issues with the 360 that were never addressed. Edit: Quite a few names on this playstation forum poll are well known 360 fanboy usernames from across the internet. Grow up kids. There isn't even enough names to make up for a 1% failure rate, which would be completely natural for a electronic product. With the hatred on the PS3, if this YLOD thing was anything to worry about it would have been played out to death by the media. Every sign points to the failure rate being well within natural limits. No where near the 33%+ failure rate of the 360, that was confirmed to be accurate many times.
Look at the amount of 60gb models sold to the public, then compare that with the amount of 60gb's that have been breaking lately. The amount of YLOD and disc reading errors has risen dramatically over the last 6 months. Look what happened with the ps2, 2 years after it launched the DRE errors started flaring up, and everyone knows that was as big if not bigger, than the 360 RRoD problem. Now 2 years later and all these problems are emerging with the ps3, YLoD, Faulty bluray drives, corrupt HDD's, 080058110 errors etc. Do you really expect me to believe that all the people with YLOD are 360 fanboys in disguise? If you actually used the official psforums you would know that 99.999999% of users are ps3 owners. Such a pathetic excuse on your part, just goes to show how much fanboys like you are in denial. It's not just the US forums either, it's all over the internet. The PS2 Disc Read Error was far more prevalent than the RRoD is/was. And it looks to me like $ony rushed the ps3 out aswell, the YLoD is caused mainly by the cheap thermal paste sony uses, the bluray drives are also faulty. We'll see what happens when the YLoD really gets into action. Things are starting to appear now, this time next year it will be an epidemic
Ah, if it isn't -MoOkS-, my favorite trash-talking fanboy muppet... Did I ever mention just how pathetic you are? Keep on hating. That's all I'm gonna say. You will regret it.
The amount of shear misinformation that is spewed here on a daily basis WITHOUT A SINGLE BIT OF PROOF to back it up is just staggering. The uninformed know nothing but misinformation only to TRY and propagate their misguided incorrect views as fact...all in the name of bias and idiocy.
I am pretty sure you thought that menu start screen was CGI or something and then... BOOM! It was all real-time and as soon as you press the start button the fu<king game starts without showing a damn loading screen. If you aren't impressed by this then how can you live having an X360 that it is inferior on everything?
Yet another fanboy to add to my "Ignore" list.
i cant wait until a first person shooter maxes the entire ps3,
Imagine a cross between Killzone 2 & Uncharted for the graphics, physics, lighting & environment but the gameplay of CS 1.6, AVP or even COD all together in one...
I love the GOW series but personally dont see what is so outstanding about the GFX. The Last Guardian however is a different story.
Why was this let through??? Seriously this should have stayed in pending till the title was fixed. The ps3 has NOT been mxed out yet, its just usingall the SPU's... Its not using them all to the max, theres more power to be found, and then theres software advancements. Seriously people dont let stories though when there blatantly misleading... Poeple just read the title, nothing else then decide to approve knowing nothing about how accurate it is... ----------------------------- ------------------------------- ----- EDIT: lol I guess that disagree was from the guy who made this thread. Well mate its true... Its fine to post the story, but at least get the title right. It just seems like you wanted to start a fanboy war or something...
The game is pretty.Even if thats as good as the PS3 gets,so what???
I don't think PS3 is maxed out...
It was God of War 1 and 2 on a 297 Mhz console that came close to some of the first Xbox 360 games. Because of the neat tricks with the render engine Santa Monica studios has been able to pull off. No one could ever imagine the good old PS2 was capable of producing image quality like this. You can truly say the PS2 has been maxed out by God of War 2. Maybe the PS3 has been maxed out in terms of raw power, but not with tricks like in God of War 2, where they rendered only the things you could currently see on screen, nothing else, it was only possible like that. The sacrifice was a steady camera, but it was working perfectly, I mean it, you were always able to see everything you needed and it left no room for any improvement. As the years go by even Uncharted 2 will look old, I am quite positive about it.
another title which is misleading..... its using ALL the SPUs NOT ALL the processing power of the PS3. author is to dumb to understand the diff. and needs a title to attract attention, meanwhile losing the little credibility he had..
You're statement is the same as, "I borrowed one hundred cents, not a dollar." If the game is using all six SPUs (only six can be used for game purposes), then that means that the devs are using at least all of the power of the first five SPUs. Otherwise, they wouldn't spread it out over six discrete processors because it's really tedious and unconventional to do so. I can't say that they're using all of the power of the sixth SPU, but it seems like they are using as much raw power of the PS3 as is available. This doesn't mean it's maxed out. Or maybe it does, but maybe "maxed out" doesn't mean what you think it means. Maxing out means that based on it's efficiency, the engine is using all of available power. You can always create a better engine, and always optimize an existing engine to make the game look better each time using the same amount of power or even less. In the same way, the 360 has been maxed out on several occasions to due developer incompetence and inefficient game engines. I assume even Halo 3 maxed out on the 360, but it doesn't mean the hardware is bad, it just means the engine was a power guzzler.
Uhm, they said it's using all the processors, not all the processing power. Nice try, though. I guess Firefox is really awesome as it's using all (one) of my laptop's processors. Imagine that.
its funny to see that developers says that they are using the full potential of the ps3 as a good thing. On the other hand when devs look at the 360 it is maxed out as it should be.
If GOW3 is maxing out the PS3, then all I can do is laugh at the future games coming. Thats probably why Mag looks like Counter-Strike.
MAG looks like CS? You can't be serious... *Fanboy-sense begins to tingle* *checks comment history* Ahhh
Mags pretty ugly man. I'm not upping it, but it's also 256 players online, what did anyone expect?
MAG isn't the prettiest game, but it looks nothing like CS.
Mag's visuals look like an average game.
@above However, looks better than your loved Halo 3. When MAG is released and servers crowded. Hell will unleash. 128x128 full scale warfare. I want that. You can go to play an exciting 8x8 Halo 3 match.
You are an abomination, PP, that REALLY needs to just die off already. I guess you like being hated, says a lot about you doesn't it, get stuffed into lockers much? A lot of xbots even show respect to this game where its deserved. You, you are just a mindless M$ c!cksucker.
If anybody talks negatively of Kratos I will personally come to your house and kick your ass! GOWIII looks amazing and if you don't think so you can leave lol. Kratos = best looking videogame character ever. edit:: damn this stupid crappy website and the fact the upload photos doesn't work!! check out the forum post I made and any naysayers tell me this doesn't rival any game ever made. http://forums.n4g.com/tm.as...
should port this game for xbox 360 if they now whats good for hem
Maybe when Xbox 720 release, it will be able to handle it.
And Microsoft should make their own f*cking games. Idiot.
trying to conceal your longing for the game!!
I highly doubt it, MW2,Killzone 2 looks better then this game and they never claimed using 100% of the power.
Its not a surprise that a game like GOW3, the first AAA Ps3 eclusive that is focused on large scale battles with numerous baddies would max the Ps3's power, Just goes to show that games that are developed for a long time and uses cheap little graphic tricks and offers little features + no splitscreen and poor scale(killzone 2, Uncharted) can be accomplished by the 360.
All of that coming from a guy with a Halo avatar... No split screen... so what? Also, you clearly don't know the epicness of the battles on KZ2, you clearly don't know the features(specifically clan features) and you obviously are trolling. Hey, what about Gran Turismo 5 Prologue? It's a demo and it sold 3 million copies. It's a demo and its already crazy good. Ugh, stupid trolls. Oh, FYI, KZ2 is AAA according to Metacritic...
mooks tell me game then that looks better than gow3 thats on 360
The Power of Cell the Power of a God unites.
And Dev needs to learn from sony it't not hard to use the cell processor or blu-ray. If they can just take their time making a good quality exclusive titles they can make better games just like God of War. Instead of making quick cash and stop delaying games for the PS3.
BTW If they said it uses all the proccessing power of the PS3 that is another word for Maxed out they had to use all 6 SPE's since that's all they have access to with games all games for each console use everything the system offers even during launch it's how they learn how to use these specs in games is the hard part and considering the work in progress demo looks worse then the teaser shown before E3 I'm guessing that the PS3 is just as maxed out as the 360
Erm.... just because it's using all the SPE's doesn't mean it's using all their power. As someone stated earlier, their car would idle and still be using all 6 cylinders. The engine isn't hardly being pushed, but the cylinders are still in use. I guess you didn't read the article. Not once does the guy say "Uses all the PS3's Processing Power." He says "Uses all the PS3's Processors" >.> Title is misleading.
"funny when people say this stuff about the 360 you believe it now that it's the oppsite side of the coin it's considered BS" It's called hypocrisy.. Get used to it on N4G. If you want facts and reality run from this place now and never return! ;)
He's on some kind of a campaign of making sh1t up. Hey guys do this: ask mooks for proof so he can spend time researching ps3 stuff. Make him post links. As he waste his time on the computer & away from games he might bump into some truth that will change his life & create a new ps3 fanboy account. Either way, as long as the words Sony & playstation cramps his fingers typing it over & over he will always be only talking about ps3. It's like being a ku klux Klan member living in a all black neighborhood. So much hate until he falls in love with a Nubian princess & has to explain to everyone that his baby is the exception. Ha ha ha!
If this is true and the ps3 is using all of processing power with the gameplay we saw at sony's press conference that mean ps3 is the most powerfull console on the market to date. If sony have anymore exclusives games that shows the detail of graphics that God Of War 3 have then this could win it for sony ps3 in 2009 we just going to half to wait for TGS 2009 to see ps3 have anymore exclusives that could do the same thing as God Of War 3.
