Even more FF13 Graphic Changes

After yesterday's story on FF13 Graphics Changes in Action, a few more near-identical screens have surfaced showing off the difference between the older build of Final Fantasy XIII.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well on the first couple of pics the first/old looks a lot better. On the second couple of pics the second/newer pic looks much more detailed but let me tell ya that both of the old pics look like CGI.

If that was real time on the PS3 then I prefer the old build by far... =D

FF 13 Versus + FF 14 at E3 2010 next year :-/

Even tho this years E3 they didn't really get anything PS3 Exclusive. MGS:R is not MGS4 SUCKERS!!! ;-D

'NOOOOOOOOOO!!! NOT!!! SNAAAAAAAAAKE!!!' ;-D (Kojima said to M$ at E3)

Now that the secret is uncovered, Square wouldnt dare release this graphical abomination.


DonCorneo2937d ago

The only thing the FF series has got going for it has always been the GRAPHICS. FF7 first 3D rpg with beatiful pre-rendered background. FFVIII fully 3D. Then there's the over the top effects for magic and summons. Plus, their CGI movies are always top-notch.

However, the story/plot is always cliche and boring. Battle system sucks. Customization is hit or miss. Too many lame mini-games. But the music is always good, though.

In the end, FF has always been about graphics first.. without great visuals, this series is just a second rate jRPG

F*** u and ur inventor and ur damned souls and every money u spent to ruin FF13 on ps3!!

F*** u again and again!! i will never support MS even if it is the last company in the world!!!! never ever!!!!

u will not get a pinny from me and i will buy ps3 when there is a price cut this year!!!!

fcking losers!!!

Letter to the bots: u deserve all the money u lost with MS and got in return a finger in that hole!!!

topdawg1222937d ago

The ps3 would've got this game years ago, but since it went multiplat and got delayed now were gonna be left with a watered down version. They delayed this an extra 3 years, and yes it is because it is a multiplat. If it was still exclusive it most likely would have looked like the older build. God, i wish they would have stayed exclusive, Ps3 owners would have had it already!!

First pics is is better on top,
second pic, the one on top is cgi. bottom one isn't

lociefer2937d ago

yep, now its officially downgraded, thaaankk yoouu microsooft

Syronicus2937d ago

I was looking forward to this game due to both graphics and game play but with the loss of decent game play in past releases by Sqenix and now the loss of the eye popping graphics shown for this game early on, I have begun to lose my interest.

Godmars2902937d ago (Edited 2937d ago )

No, thank you Square. they didn't have to make the deal. Or make any over estimation of their abilities.

Of course its going to be ironic, and death sentence, if they manage to make the 360 version look like the first pics, while the PS3 gets the downgraded one.

presto7172937d ago (Edited 2937d ago )

But is it really because of the 360 that they had to downgrade? I thought Square assured us that they would finish making the ps3 version before they even start doing anything for the 360. Or was that just a load of BS?

At least squeenix "promised" to keep Versus XIII exclusive to the PS3. So if the regular FFXIII looks like crap compared to Versus, then we'll know it was because the game went multiplat.

THE BIAS2937d ago

And some people think dvd's haven't hindered games

Jmlopezbr2937d ago

Is it not possible that the first ones were touched up or target renders? We all know Square Enix lies... a lot... so they could have easily "lied" to us with those first images.

Also, have you people not seen the demo? The demo looked great and it wasn't even the final build. The E3 Trailer was amazing as well. Can we please stop worrying about the graphics and more about the story. That is what I am more worried about, because I don't worry about graphics while I play.

Boody-Bandit2937d ago

my anticipation for this title is starting to dwindle.
SE has some explaining to do but I'm sure it will be just pure BS PR spin / damage control anyway.

...*shakes head*

This game looked really good the first time I saw it.

Thank you Microsoft. You strike again.

Omegaheat: Are you blind? This game looked really good before it went multiplatform. You can clearly see the downgrade in graphics.

Hellsvacancy2937d ago (Edited 2937d ago )

Wait 4 Versus like i am

Thats y im all 4 exclusive titles the devs can can get the most out of the platform there workin on then - rather then lower the quality

Hence y i said "Wait 4 Versus"

Chubear2937d ago (Edited 2937d ago )

MS has told developers in the past to "DOWNGRADE/DEGRADE YOUR GAMES ON THE 360". So if you support a company that tells developers to do that in clear simple English then why's everyone now up-set?

I has thought that gaming "journalists" would have talked about this more when MS openly came out and said these things but n-o-o-o. They're just patsies looking for their next ad$ meal.

I know a lot of 360 fans will say I'm lying about the quote above but it's true. I know a couple of sites did vlogs about it like 1UP, DLB etc. How the hell people can support a company that openly tells developers this is totally amazing to me.

If you disagree then that means you're saying I'm lying about the quote and I'd love that you set me straight after you disagree.

Christopher2937d ago

Looks like the graphic changes aren't really downgrades but 'Americanization' changes.

Aquanox2937d ago

Do you remember the first screens released for MGS4?

Do you remember how it ended up looking?

Ok, it's the same thing here, and that game wasn't even ported. Stop blamming the Xbox 360, it has always handled ports splendidly.

Chubear2937d ago

you all got to know they downgraded other things like all types of gaming physics, lighting and even certain gameplay elements and parts of the story to make things fit on DVD9. It's sad.

N4g_null2937d ago (Edited 2937d ago )

Ha every thing has an xbox green to it now LOL. I think they are trying to show off some differ rendering from what it looks like... also the colors are much more richer which will make it look more cartoony to HD gamers because they like darkness.

This is a graphical choice and possibly to keep the detail higher. I would suggest them offer both choices on the blu ray edition just to make some people happy.

Another thing is there are less shadows just because of the contrast this is why some of you feel the graphics are flatter. They are all the same the only change is in the screen color adjustment.

ultimolu2937d ago

Yeah Aquanox, keep telling yourself that it isn't the 360. It's interesting to know that 360 fanboys can't see that Microsoft chose the wrong format.

Yeah, because everyone is a 360 hater around here...anyone who dares speak about the downgrade of quality in the game.

I have seen videos of this game before it was announced as multiplatform and it looked a LOT better than it does now.

Chubear2937d ago

I think you're going to see a lot rentals or used sales for this game on the PS3 while the base puts their money on FFvs13 instead. It'll be interesting to see how much the 360 fanbase support the game in NA & EU

Rusco872937d ago

MGS4 looked better after after they Graded it like they do in films. i.e 300, the matrix, LOTR and every film that is recent

foxtheory2937d ago

The hype for this game is slowly going away as well, although I'll still get it for sure. The gameplay still looks great, and even though it doesn't look as good as it did earlier, it still looks amazing. It just won't be a day one buy for me...

leila012937d ago

I'd wait for the game to be in my PS3 before I make any stupid statement.

phosphor1122937d ago

And I still don't see it. The background looks better, but for all we know, thats a 2D background. The models themselves obviously lost thousands of polys. You can now see the corners from the polys on Lightning's hand, boobs, and the hair looks utterly atrocious.

meepmoopmeep2937d ago

i've played the demo many many times.
it still looks great to me.

and yeah, the 2nd images.
Top is the CGI one, in the demo that scene is real time which explains the 2nd bottom image.

THE BIAS2937d ago

Ps3 fans said this since the beginning though. Either the 360 version will look noticeably worse or the 360 version will drag the ps3 version down. Of course ms aren't going to want the ps3 version looking superior. So its been dragged down, noticeably. Look at the pictures. This is why we hate it when ps3 exclusives go to 360. No wonder Hideo Kojima refused to make mgs4 for that xbox tripe

ThanatosDMC2937d ago

I'll wait for people's reviews and what our N4G people has to say about the game when it comes out.

meepmoopmeep2937d ago

the graphics (so far) are on par with some of the best looking games this gen.

so yeah, i don't know if it'll get downgraded or whatever, but the demo
was no slouch in the graphics department.

the gameplay is awesome (if you love you the ol' turn-based system) with a twist

NeoCloud2937d ago

Wow, that is quite a big difference there, Lets hope it gets better with time.
