In addition to the announcement of Rockstar developing a exclusive title for the PS3. It is rumored that this new title may be using Natural Motion's Euphoria animation engine which Rockstar reportedly licensed a few months ago.
i can,t wait for new information,Rockstar is really a great company :D
GTA IV use Euphoria? am i wrong
I think they said it was a modified table tennis engine, HEAVILY one would think!!
Euphoria is an animation and physics engine, so yes GTA4 uses RAGE and Euphoria, atleast according to many previews of GTA4
GTA IV uses the table tennis engine, RAGE.
it's so nice to hear all this good news for sony. finally they're back in business - i think they've never been away. smart smart
Name of this engine doesn't tell me much. What games use it?
This is Huge for the PS3. It's not just a game it's a FRANCHISE. Meaning that part 2 or 3 or even 4 will never ever come to the Xbox 360. Let's just end all rumors from the future that when the 2nd or 3rd part comes out, regardless of what we hear on the net we already know that it's PS3 exclusive. As a matter of fact i'm going to save this article so that when 2010 comes i can still show off to speculation that it's only PS3 exclusive.
"As a matter of fact i'm going to save this article so that when 2010 comes i can still show off to speculation that it's only PS3 exclusive." Wow
Why are u saying wow. It's true that in a few years people will start speculating like they do always. And start up internet rumors.
"Why are u saying wow." because you wanted to save it for three years from now
"It's true that in a few years people will start speculating like they do always. And start up internet rumors." Facts never really slow rumors especially ones driven by desire
That above game uses the Euphoria engine. I think the GTA 4 game is going to use it to some extent.
It's obvious that it's not on developers best interest to have one console dominating the market... 3rd developers would have no where to go if the dominating console maker (i.e. microsoft, Sony or Nintendo) flips on them... due to large install base it makes business sense for developers to support the console with the most consoles which is not currently not the Playstation 3. But by doing so they put themselves in an odd dangerous situation if microsoft or Nintendo changes directions as Nintendo did back when N64 came out and Sony saved the day with the original Playstation.
I think 3rd party developers are being very cautious about what and when they developed games for an expecific console... their presense and the survival of at least 2 consoles in the game industry is key for the future of their companies.
this is great news for ps3 owners i really looking forward for more info on the game
When they announced the Euphoria Engine most speculated that Rockstar will use it for GTA4 and maybe have it pushed back into 2008. Now it's using a Tweaked RAGE Engine.
I REALLY want to see how awesome the Euphoria Engine is. I really was impressed with the Tech Demo shown earlier this year or so.
DarthBillBoy seems to be one of a few people who has actually read the articles regarding the technology behind GTA. RAGE is for the GRAPHICS, while Euphoria will be used as a backend Interaction/Physics engine.
RAGE has serious potential... but in my opinion; Graphics aren't even half the battle - we need realistic phsycis & interaction. This is where Euphoria comes into play. This engine will blow the hinges off of Havok and I can't wait to see it in action.
The fact that the PS3 exclusive, whatever it may be, will be built on Euphoria... might actually force me to unwillingly get a PS3. MGS4, GT5, LittleBigWorld, etc... would never convince me to drop the $$ for a PS3. But Rockstar exclusives built on the Euphoria physics system? Hell, I would buy one without the price drop for that.
also saying that the envitable sequels will come to ps3 is also a moot point at the moment. considering you dont know what game it is. it might suck. if rockstar has proved anything is that GTA is there only real hit.(State of emergency and Bully have had some success)
really? aren`t manhunt and max payne from rockstar too.
Rockstar has more thant GTA. Granted the rest of the titles fall in the GTA shadow, they do make decent games and are probally the most innovative north american developer as well.
Do not hate what you do not understand.
Edit: The warriors was pretty good. And I also heard that Table tennis game wasn't that bad. R* is no 1 hit wonder company.
Euphobia Engines......whatever it is sounds good to me?!
If the game is going to utilize the PS3 Hardware...and harness its power, when you have CELL-BLURAY-RSX, i seriously doubt that the game will suck. Im pretty sure its going to be very similar to Grand Theft Auto, I can almost gaurantee you its going to be some new Street-Thug-Mafia type game and its gonna go to the next level. GTA-4 will be a great game but the franchise is dying. They have milked that game to the bones 3 PSP versions, 3 PS2 Version, 3 XBOX VERSION, and now its multiplatform, i can just tell you that its in its end. Now it will SELL millions still, but the hoopla is kinda going away. As time goes on DEVELOPERS will have to make the next BIG games on PS3 because only on the PS3 you can develope new never before seen games.
NEW FRANCHISES, THATS ALL ABOUT POWER BABY!!!!!!!!!!
yea i agree with you there, the GTA series is getting old and i think they need to do some major rebuilding with it because a lot of the stuff that would've worked last gen wont cut it this gen.
It is growing old and I'm sure Rock Star is growing old of all the negative publicity that sadly happen.
It will probably be a more tasteful mafia/higher class. Now people always get the wrong impression when they here the word tasteful. Would less senseless work. They will probably do away with the street thug beat on helpless people, improve on the story oriented part of the game but of course I will go with the "take it to the next level" when in comes to the Action/violence.
This way, they are not alienating their audience and greatly reduce, or even call off, the conservative media Hound Dogs.
Wasn't there some announcement awhile ago that the Euphoria Engine had a major upgrade that included PS3 Cell processor support?
Seems like Sony is finally getting back on the saddle. Great to see them showing the same initiative they showed during the PSX days with new IPs and attracting 3rd parties with interesting technology that opens up unique avenues for developers eager to test new ideas and innovations. I was worried that Sony were happy ti sit on their laurels and simply run off the remaining momentum following the PS2's success, but they really seem to be back in the driver's seat as of late, especially after an obviously weak start. Let's hope they keep this up. Technology like Euphoria is very suited to the PS3's abilities and can only make a game better.
lets get the name of the game 1st... THEN talk about euphoria
never heard of it...
Star Wars: TFU
Both upcoming by Lucas Arts. The engine is developed by Natural Motion.
Check the site here, really cool stuff:
i hope this new engine shows of the ps3 true power
Confirmed, the new PS3 controller will have smelling sense. Euphoria sounds like a scent.
do i have to say its the R* western that was shown at E305 it was ment to be releasd some time 2008 but know one has seen it since.
reveled in the first batch of PS3 movies was a western from R*. the company has been extremly secretive about the project since then withnary a scrap of info made available since it was unveiled. we dont even know wat its called-"old west project" its still as much as anyone knows. speculastion continues that the game is in fact, the sequal to red dead revolver but wer not really buying that. two years of black out for a sequal? oer guess is that its a new sandbox western, like activisions GUN, only.... nex gen-ier
where is it now?
