Gamespot asks the big question: "Why PS3 exclusive?". Watch the full Gamespot interview with Epic's Mark Rain to find the answer.
Nice Cornrows. Right behind the Mullet as my favorite hairstyle.
Good show me the "POW3R" of the PS3, I am still waiting for a reason to get one.....
Edit - A remote control really? Well hell that was the clincher Keyser :P
[email protected] You asked for a price cut. Sony gave it to you.
No,Actually they just went back to their original pricing structure of $599 and $499. Granted they have sweetened the pot. But it is still a lot of money $400 is the sweet spot IMO.
- You asked for games. Sony and Developers game them to you.
I have yet to see a game exclusive to the PS3 that is out now that makes me think. OMG I have to have that right now.
- You asked for the power of the ps3 to be proven. Killzone, Lair, Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavenly Sword and etc. gave it to you.
These games aren't out yet so they don't prove anything yet.
So the price drop, great line up of games, remote control, and 5 free bluray movies wasn't enough huh?
Man, tough crowd.
You asked for a price cut. Sony gave it to you.
You asked for games. Sony and Developers game them to you.
You asked for the power of the ps3 to be proven. Killzone, Lair, Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavenly Sword and etc. gave it to you.
You're asking for rumble in six-axis. It's coming soon.
You wanted a top notch online experience. Sony gave it to you for free.
The List could go on and on, What else do you want? Halo 3 on the Ps3? Why?
You have better games come out.
Sometimes I think some Xbox 360 fanboys are B3yond help. That's what denial does for ya.
Follow in Bladestar's example, he you used to hate the ps3 and now even the most biased 360 fanboy is getting one.
Ps3 for the win baby!
Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4 for the Kill!!!
O yeah, Sony fans, don't forget to give Sony fans +bubbles. You all deserve them. After one of the best E3 2007 for Sony and Nintendo, Nobody can ever say you were wrong again.
I am just saying, Blu-Ray is no incentive in my book even though I own an HDTV and a Surround system. And no game so far has shown me I need to spend an additional $500 on another system that is essentially the same as my 360. I am just saying if this game is running smooth and fast like it is being chased by the cops, Then I want to see it and if it stomps the later 360 version. Then kudos, I just don't need $1,000 of gaming systems doing the same damn thing.
Plus, If I start playing PS3 all the time what about my Gamerscore, LOL
the corn rows and mullet combo is too much.
Someone please break it down for me.
suck it up andy you noob.
The real reason UT3 and Haze are TIMED EXCLUSIVES this holiday season is because of Halo 3.
Ubisoft and Epic know better.
@1.10: Thats called marketing hype. They will say the same thing for the 360 version when it launches. The final product and sales will tell the real truth. Well see which one sells better.
I think my cousin told me who you are.
Yea, it's called the Halo effect. And it moves everything off of the 360. It creates the kind of market that allows Halo 3 to thrive. It dominates, therefor no other games dare cross it, therefor it's the only option on the 360, therefor it dominates, therefor... You can easily see how success feeds success. Success creates hype. Hype creates success. It's self-feeding. However, it's also good for the competition, because it gives them exclusives or timed exclusives.
"UT3 now running better on PS3 than Gears on 360 last year"
Man that's just cruel ;-)
"Good show me the "POW3R" of the PS3, I am still waiting for a reason to get one"
Your 'Second best haircut' gave you plenty of reasons. All the way through the video you clicked on because you were interested.
Keep on saving up and you can have both (exclamation mark)
I can't give you a good reason to buy one. But if you've seen the PS3 demos of E307, then I can tell you why. And it's [email protected]
Wow, look at your pic, still got that 360 so far stuck up your put, and it looks like you are trying to shove it up there even deeper. Good job dude, keep it up.
Man that Mark Rain is one of the most sizable dweebs ive ever seen. By him saying what he said i get one thing from it, that gears of war still looks better than killzone 2 if not he would have compared this game to killzone 2. why compare a your game to another if that other is not the one with the best graphics so far? and guess what he's wrong and this game will evetually come to the 360 and look even better than that
as expected from the most powerful system out.
the best console experience has been confirmed.
not only does UT support for usergenerated content for PS3 but it also supports keyboard and mouse on the ps3.
in Graphics The XBOX 360 is a clear winner. The GPU is more powerful. It has more powerful fillrate, and far more pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Part of the reason is their choice of memory, and architecture of pixel and vertex procesing. I can't get into details but the same vertex shader will run much slower on the PS3 than the XBOX 360. The 360 also has a clever new way rendering high definition anti aliased back buffers. To accomplish the same effect on PS3 is prohibitively expensive. For this reason I think many games will have no choice but to run in non-HD resolutions on the PS3 version, use a lower quality anti aliasing technique, or do back buffer upscaling. The end result in all cases is going to be noticeably worse image quality.
NOTE: he doesn't say anything about it but next year the 360 will get UNREAL TOURNAMENT and you know it will play better when they have a chance to work on it and tweak it a little bit, PS3 JUST KEEPS PULLING MEANINGLESS thing out of there @SSES to make poeple buy PS3's in my opinion CHILDISH and PATHETIC
You honestly think that, "many games will have no choice but to run in non-HD resolutions"? I can't see any SD game EVER being released on the PS3. That's crazy.
"In graphics, xbox 360 is the clear winner"??? Are you icelandic? Have you seen Killzone 2? The issue of ps3 games looking no better than 360 games should no longer be brought up
360 GPU>PS3 GPU
PS3 GPU+Cell Processor>360 GPU and 360 CPU out of the Water
example: watch killzone 2 again
Why else do you think they harbor on an island desolated from fools?
going along with (but not necessarily agreeing with) wat videogames4life said about the GPU's of the PS3 and 360.
i heard, and i dont remember where, that the ps3 is significantly underpowered compared to what they were originally designing it to be.
the story is that IBM and sony were tryin to get the cell processor to do it all, that is as GPU and CPU therefore cutting cost and power consumption while having insane power. apparently they failed and got Nvidia to bail them out and derived the current GPU off of high end Nvidia chips
this may be complete bs but if some1 else has heard this and can find the source it would be great
wikipedia sheds a little light as it says that the cell processor was designed to bridge the gap between CPU's and GPU's but it doesnt say much more to my level of understanding of such things
MS isn't too happy about this one.
Pete: "Yes Bill I know we can make money from it But Sony is giving it away for free."
Pete: "Damn I need to sell my stock fast and bailout"
Bill: "What did you say?"
Pete: "I sad H3 is going to rock and really help out"
Damn did Mark say exclusive (Dr Evil Voice) "Reeeaaally"
I expect some money to be thrown at this one very fast, checks accounts, 50Mill to Take two, 1.5 Billion warranty fund.
Hmm things are looking tight.
Send in the space marines they will make us some money.
um, 50 million wouldnt make it 1.5 billion, .5 is equalivant to 500 million (500,000,000) not 50 million (50,000,000). So 50 million would make it more like 1.05 billion (1,050,000,000)
But does the placement of that zero really make that much difference when it's over 1 billion? I'm thinking not so much.
It's nice to actually have good news directly from Epic about the PS3 after the stupid Gears of War/Resistance comparisons for all this time. They're just a great dev company period.
lol @ disagrees...there's some true fanboys here. You disagree that Epic is a good dev company?
EPIC is well... EPIC! They're an EPIC dev. The games they make are EPIC. Anyways, that's probably really annoying, but I think EPIC is one of the best devs.
My list of devs I know about and like (not necessarily in order):
My list of devs I know about and dislike (not necessairly in order):
Nintendo (I really really really hate Nintendo with a fiery passion)
Thx for listening to my rant, and have a nice day. =)
wheres Konami for MGS and Valve for HL2??
They're on there now.
OXM magazine were invited to play the 360 version of UT3 recently and reported the same thing....that the unreal engine running UT3 on 360 was looking better than gears of war (which was released a year ago!)
Gutted it's a timed exclusive though! i'm really stoked about this game and want it sooner rather than later over halo anytime.
Epic says : On the contrary it's doing better than Gears.
How will this be spun... 3,2,1
Let the spinning beggin.
huh? stay with me here keywords = "Unreal and tournament" is currently running better on the PS3 than more keywords = "Gears of war" was running on the 360. This could be a myriad of reasons. They know UE3 better now, their actually smart enough to work with the PS3, the ps3 is more qualified to run all the tasks flawlessly...I don't know the reason but it's unfair to spin it negatively against the 360. My bet is that they just know UE3 better now...Gears was their first game built with it. but we will see when the 360 version comes...
The XBOTS are just being POUNDED with shietty news all WEEK LONG....hahhaahahaha
This week will for ever be remembered in the gaming community as HELL WEEK for the XBOTS....HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHA
360 fans still have all the games this holiday season, one of them will most likely win GOTY. so no, i am not to mad about this. plus UT3 and Haze are both coming to 360 eventually.. so no, not mad at all.
Still calling people xbots.. Are you guys freaking 12
huh? im sorry but i think uncharted or warhawk has a better chance at GOTY, hell UE3 and haze have a better chance.
you most likely have no life and 10 + accounts
How is it hell week?
I have a load of new demos to play on the 360 from E3? So UT is a timed exclusive? So what? I've got too many games to buy before Christmas anyway. And I would hope that epic has upped their game since they were building Gears. If they hadn't, it would be sad.
I'd take bubbles but you have none to take.
and there was an interview with a different guy in the studio on the same show were he said it will run great on 360 too and will also have the mod support.
always picking the stuff that suits your system.
pick and choose fanboy, pick and choose.
M$ doesn't let mods on it's console, only on the ps3 that is an open platform.
Hrrm lets see the engine has been refined, and improved upon, the more important question is, does it run better then the PC and 360 version.
O well, Copy and Paste Time.
My Previous Comment:
OHHH, Now I get it-
"PS3 Cell = 4-5 times faster than 2xQUAD CPU single percision, about 1.5 x faster @ Dp" + Blu-ray + Standard Harddrive + Wifi + Sixaxis+ Rsx + Me = KILLZONE 2
Guy's the power of the Ps3 has already been proven at E3. Ps3 had the best looking games of all the consoles. Halo 3 looked garbage, Mass effect was OK at best, Too Human was garbage, Project Gotham 4 = 30fps. I mean come on. Compared to even Lair, the Graphics of every other game on the Xbox 360 looks like something i drew in 1st grade.
And let me not even get started on Heavenly Sword, Gran Turismo, Drakes Fortune, Motorstorm, ***"Metal Gear Solid 4"*** and etc. etc, and etc. All these games compared to what 360 has out in 2 years except Gears is really just phenomenal. And even more amazing is that the ps3 has only been out since last November--Less than a year? and it took a Year to Achieve Gears of War but it takes less than a year to achieve Unreal Tournament on the Ps3, which is much better than Gears.
Wow, the Ps3 is a monster and all Devs, biased and unbiased, will realize that is really capable of ushering the new generation of HD gaming.
You can talk about ports all you want, but How many games from the 360 can even compare to all the games of the ps3 that aren't ports? Halo 3? Nothing but Hype. Killzone 2, nothing but the future.
Killzone 2 for the Win Baby!
Your a Fuc*ing Idiot
the 360 has been getting Credit for its Graphics, PS3 Graphics look almost the Same as PS2 Graphics, KILLZONE did not have better Graphics than any titles on 360 KILLZONE 2 had some good Physics and Graphics were ok (to NEX-GEN Standard) but NOT BETTER THAN 360 i can get you some Facts if you want
You and every other PShitty 3 fanboy out there are going crazy over killzone 2 saying how it's the future, the best this the best that. ok i understand why you guys are all hyped about killzone 2. i mean since the ps3 came out there's been nothing but garbage coming out for that system and now you finally have something to cheer for. i totally agree the graphics are awesome (no one can deny that) cause they are. but i mean look at killzone 1 - it was a piece of crap! it got pure
sh!t reviews. now look at halo. halo in my opinion has never been about the graphics because the graphics were always average at best. but halo is a proven franchise. It's proven to make money and sell xbox's. now compare what halo has done for xbox (again proven franchise) and look what killzone did for the ps2 - nothing. it did nothing. i can't believe it was labeled as a "halo killer". i still don't understand why people compared it to halo, but anyways:
Halo -> proven franchise
Killzone -> still trying
Now of course the chance of killzone actually becoming a franchise like halo exist but right now it's just a fluff video to get you ps fanboys sucking each other's d!cks in excitement. when halo comes out we all know it will make history, lets see how killzone does when ever it comes out. then lets compare the 2.
so the point of the post, dont compare you wannabe killer app to halo. you ps fanboys can talk to us 360 fanboys when your sh!t game actaully delivers!
If your SMart Sell you Xbox360 know when you still can, get 500$ And go get a Ps3, For You My Friends(not) Are gonna get less games. Cause Now all Dev are learning how to make Really good games for the ps3, and they wanna change their games Exclusive to the ps3 cause its getting easier and the games will look even Better. so Preper yourself. This Fall(as in Time of the Year) is going to be Hard Fall(as in Failure!).
Mass Effect & Call of Duty 4 WILL BE much better games than Killzone2. Killzone1 WAS trash, Killzone2 will have a lot more to prove beyond great graphics. Graphics are only part of the puzzle, GEARS OF WAR is the best next gen game because of it's OUTSTANDING GAMEPLAY, the graphics just add 2 the icing. UT4 is a game in development, GEARS is the game that has PWNED NEXT GEN & you dare 2 compare ? Killzone2 isn't even out, how can u begin 2 compare it 2 Gears or any other game that is available for purchase NOW ? I cant wait to actually see & play Killzone either, but sorry, COD4 looks fantastic. It looked as good as KILLZONE2 to me if not better & much more realistic - G4 gave COD4 "Game of E3" along with honorable mention to MASS EFFECT - Killzone2 was NOT even mentioned in their Best of E3 wrapup today, MASS EFFECT & COD4 were. I guess you think you know more about the Industry than people who were ACTUALLY AT E3 & SAW THESE GAMES & REVEIW THESE GAMES FOR A LIVING. Your whole line of commentary is a whole lot of heavily biased speculation on games that aren't even available for us to review much less actually *PLAY*.
As for Halo3 being hype, whoa you are going to $HIT on yourself when you see Halo's sales numbers this Fall. It's not my favorite either, but to call one of the biggest selling franchises’s of ALL time "TRASH" is hilarious. As far as your list of great games there Son, you need to add BIOSHOCK, MASS EFFECT, HALO 3, TOO HUMAN, ASSASSIAN'S CREED, COD4, DARK SECTOR, GRAND THEFT IV, FABLE 2, RE5, GUITAR HERO III, GEARS OF WAR 1 & yes, GEARS OF WAR 2 (since most of the PS3 games u cite are 2008+ models). MASS EFFECT okay at best ?!? I'm so glad that YOU will not be enjoying the BEST SciFi RPG on any platform to date. Wouldn't be surprized if it gets GOTY either.
I have a PS3 & a 360, they are both great consoles. The *potential* for the PS3 is there, no doubt. But unlike you, I'm alittle less biased & reserve my final opinion 4 when these games are RELEASED & I PLAY THEM. However, so far, I have *yet* to see a AAA PS3 game that is BETTER than a AAA 360 game, graphically or otherwise. By the way, my PS3 is so powerful that I find myself playing my 360 much more because I have a library of great games I can play NOW & MORE keep coming every month. *Achievement Unlocked*
Sony did a great job at E3, but I wanna play METAL GEAR, MASS EFFECT, ASSASSIANS CREED, COD4, DRAKE'S FORTUNE, DARK SECTOR, BIOSHOCK, & yes, TOO HUMAN online co-op, & eventually GEARS OF WAR 2 way more than I do KILLZONE2 or HEAVENLY or LAIR if I had to chose. But you, GENERAL, are the kind of FLAMING FANBOY that makes me more biased to my 360. Oh well, if these games are half as good as you say they will be, at least I'll have a reason to play my PS3 again besides RESISTANCE & THE DARKNESS. I just wish we had just one of the games you mentioned on store shelves.
So go ahead, disagree with me. We will see when ALL of these games are actually out & reviewed & played. Oh & GENERAL, sorry for the multisyllable words. Maybe a more realistic & educated gamer will take the time 2 explain my comments to you. Now go play your graphically superior games... oh wait, I'm sorry, they don't even EXIST ?!?
First, there is a spell checker. Please use it.
Secondly, why would I want to sell my console? When more good games are on the way?
Oh and the video of DMC4 on a 360 is brilliant. Please purchase an xbox360 to watch it on live. Don't sell your PS3 (if you have one) as it does have some good games coming.
fanboys r in denial. it was just said by the developer that URT runs better on ps3 then gears did on 360. man, all this positive press ps3 is getting. gotta love it.lol
worst week ever for the 360...
Well there's no denying it then. Looks like the PS3 is more powerful than what most poeple think.
or many are willing to admit.
there are quite a few spin artists comming back to 'haunt' these positive articles. strange they were oddly missing from anything E3/Killzone2/GTA5 related :/
I am very glad that epic has got the game (and engine for that matter) running well on ps3. this game is going to be a must have with branching single player, 4 player online co-op, and free mods. Cant wait.
Epic is turning into a top-teir developer, up there with the big boys. I think it's great that they are doing unique projects on each console. We need more developers like this.
Oh man I expect alot of people here are already planning maps for all of us to play. This is going to be a great experience.Someone give me some bubbles since the xbots took em all away lol. Here I'll start giving everyone above me 1.
THIS IS MY FINAL COMMENT..... AND WHAT BETTER ARTICLE THAN THIS....
This goes out to
Power of Green: "PS3 can't do realistic graphics and textures. everything comes out cartoony.
FirstKnightT: "Why do I need a PS3...ohh why someone please tell me why would I need to buy a PS3"
TheMart: "Cell is not optimized for gaming"
TopGamer: Wow I own every console...blah blah blah and Xbox360 is just better...Wow its the truth wow wow wow. "Its a good time to be a 360 owner"
To all the other fanboys I didnt mention I apologize. Your snifflings never hit my radar and werent consistent enough. Now hate me all you want but im now just going to spectate this site and continue to watch Sony butt hurt your everyday lives. Their is no more need for GaMr here. But should the evil of the "Xbots" and the Sony bashers and haters return and start to get out of control then remember one thing you fanboy lames. Remember the name that strikes fear in fanboy hearts.
To Be Continued:
deserve +100 bubbles. Good Job.
"But should the evil of the "Xbots" and the Sony bashers and haters return and start to get out of control then remember one thing you fanboy lames. Remember the name that strikes fear in fanboy hearts."
I just had to laugh about this
And take the rest of the derelict-delusional Sony sheep
fvck wads with you.
we have agrees and disagrees for this comment too :rofl:
Oh and the Mart is a jackass and Thammer1 is a douchebag.
this is one of the games thats tempting me to get a split fish controler, played unreal 2004 in class and had a blast and remember how awesome and fun unreal is!
if you guys havent heard or seen one here is the IGN review, cheers!
ps it comes in a much better looking black now
When it drops on the 360 in 2008, it will run better I can guarantee you. They are trying to sale their engine to PS3 developers as well as build hype for the PS3's small fanbase. Unreal notoriously runs alot better on the 360, so when the time comes next year PS3 fanboys will be crying.
at least there is some logic behind your comment.
"UT3 now running better on PS3 than Gears on 360 last year"
And PGR4 is running better on the 360 than PGR3 did last year. COD 4 is running better than COD 3 did last year. What Mark Rein is saying is that games look and run better now than they did last year. Is'nt that pretty obvious? 1 year of development time usually has that effect on games, Mark ;)
with your point, It's still funny since, I heard out of numerous mouths here that Gears isn't even possible on the PS3. Silly fanboys.
"Play B3yond" and thats what ima f#cking do!
UT3 will rock too bad for microsoft if only they allowed user generated mods wait its not bad it good really really good muhahahaha
This and LBP is a must buy for me.
Its clear most of you did not understand what was said. lol
They have more skills with the engine using the two games as an example has nothing to do with what you people are trying to imply as if the 360 version won't be as good due to more skill with the engine and dev time plus hardware. lol
retards wondering if Gears could even run on the PS3?
