PSM3 scores GRAW 2,plus other reviews.
is like she's a real person like SimOne. If you see her, chuck us a pm and ill be there real quick (europe only)
Here is a real person that I think resembles her a lot.
dude your quick. we should set up a website, lol + thx shes hot
Is PSM3 the same magazine as PSM or a different one?
PSM3 is from the UK, I believe
WOW O.O beautiful cover :D I like redheads XD
Yep. Lara Croft's reign is over. It's Nariko's turn now.
it still is a CARTOON, i really hope your not attracted to a virtual girl
eeeeks, how sad
That is dirt cheap for an AAA title. For example Everquest 2 cost roughly $75 mil to develop for the core game alone, thats without the expansions.
Gears was developed for under 10 mil. Thats cheap.
I'd say that's quite a bit. It costs [adultswim] 14 million to make ONE episode of Aqua Teen. I'm not kidding at all...
It was around 700 million for War of the Worlds, I think. Yeah, it bombed, but the special effects were incredible, right???
Snap, my rents got Godfather's!!! I love pizza!
Thanks for the info!
Just checked it out on the web,and yes PSM3 is from the UK.
Am I the only one who thinks the shadows look really bad on the PS3 version (at least on the demo they released over the PSN)?
must be your Tivo bro .. looks much better than on 360 on my HDTV.
lighting and sound is better in the ps3 version + you get 14 exclusive maps and new weapons.
I mean, the shadows on the beginning of the demo are kind of moving and they look somewhat jagged, but when I looked up to the sky I realized it's because there's some kind of heat effect affecting the shadows being cast from that metal tower... for the rest of the demo, the shadows are really, really nice! Best I've seen on a PS3 game so far, in my opinion
Got me confused there for a bit. I have the PSM this month and GRAW2 wasn't there. I enjoyed the demo so this score is not surprising at all.
@LoudNinja - I thought it was a typo lolz.
People get them mixed up
Well it makes sense that they have in-depth preview of Killzone since GG is a European developer. I wish PSM had that for this month's issue, because it was kinda bland imo. Also, $40 million development cost? Wasn't it $20 million reported before if I remember correctly?
I hope the game doesn't get delayed....if it does,it better be for a good ass reason or ima be pissed.....
Is that much for a game? What does the average nextgen games cost to develop? (that doesnt include the updated lastgen console wii)
Yea it doesn't sound like much compared to paying $50mil for d/l content.
I dont see the big deal with 40 million when M$ pays 50 million for some exclusive content?
That covers hot.
Good score for GRAW2, I definitely get it if I didn't already have it.
They reviewed ManHunt 2, those Bastards. Just so we know what we'll never have.
There will be 6 animation clips on PSN which will tell the story of the Heavenly Sword. NOOO .....spoilers.
with the way they have turned around their performance on the PS3. If delaying a game helps them turn out gems like R6:V and now GRAW2. Then delay all you need to boys. I played GRAW2 when I had a 3FIXME and while it looked good, the PS3 version just blows it away. Just look at the explosions alone, they look real on the PS3. Somehow I get the feeling the xbot leaders at these "review" sites will stay away from screen comparisons because it will only make the 3FIXME version look like a glorified etch a sketch.
It should be better than that. GRAW2 is extra dope. On line co op is sweet with your friends and the story is good too. Just play it on hard though easy and normal are too simple. Also moving your squad correctly is key to not getting killed.
That's exactly what I was thinking. 86/100 isn't an exactly an awesome score especially when it comes from a magazine with your console on the cover. I downloaded GRAW2 on PSN but I haven't had time to play it yet. I am going to give it a try right now and see for myself.
Please Sony give us a VGA cable and 1366x768 support for the PS3. I have both a 360 and a PS3, but this GRAW demo looked like dirt compared to the
360 version on VGA. Im running HDMI on my PS3. Shadows were just terrible. Rainbow 6 was the same. The 360 version on VGA was superior in every way.
If you have a native 1080p or 720p tv, then maybe you are ok. But still the 360 version looked better at 720p on component on a 1366x768 native tv.
Blue Ray at my tvs 1366x768 resolution would look soooooo much better also.
neva heard of that... yes i have a 720p t.v and it looks sweet.
The 1366x768 is also called 768p and most 720p TFTs have a native resolution of 768p (768 lines). I use a 1080p HDMI signal from the PS3 and a 1080i from my set top box. Both work fine. The thing is 1080 is converted down to 768, while 720 is actually converted up to 768 (physically) so one would guess, 1080->768 is the better resolution (it is, but 720 ain't bad either).
I miss a native 768p resolution - which is strange. As I said, most HD TFTs run that resolution. I can use a VGA input with 1366x768, and that seems to work properly, though.
For GRAW2, and I haven't played the 360 version, it looks awesome, in my opinion. Great game. I had the feeling it is a bit hard at first, but now I finish the demo in a couple of minutes and wished it would be longer - can't wait. They better bring a Lair demo, or this will be my next spending.
the xbot spinmachine hard at work already...lol
just look at the firefight you get into at the end of the demo and tell me you saw anything that intense on the 180. This game bored me when i had that console, now it actually looks exciting.
One dumbass poster at Gametrailers says GRAW2 is too hard - he shouldn't ever pick up a controller again.
Another one says GRAW2 is a horrible port - let's see, it looks better, has 14 more maps than the 360 original, has 8 more weapons, and a new MP mode - that idiot needs to tear his own eyes out.
Don't take offense to this because I'm not attacking you but did you play GRAW2 on the 360? I did. All the way through several times over.
(BTW my name here is the same as my 360 LIVE and PS3 PSN so people can check my LIVE info to see I don't BS)
I don't know if I would go as far to say the graphics are better. There are some things I like more and some I don't like as much. All in all I'd say it's a wash but to be fair it's been months since I played GRAW2 on the 360 and I have since sold it.
I downloaded the demo on LIVE to compare them but they don't have the same demo on LIVE that PSN has. LIVE is the multiplayer demo and PSN is the single player. But even still I think they both have different strengths and weakness.
I am probalby going to pick up GRAW2 on the PS3 because I really like the PS3 controller and interface. Besides I want to give it a try online.
It's kind a harder ... but you only need to get used to it. The enemy cover system is excellent. If you pull the trigger to early or don't take cover it becomes pretty tricky to get thru it. Also, bullets are more lethal then in (arcade?) shooters. You can't just jump out behind a cover and start shoot'n. You get counter fire and will die pretty quickly.
But, its a "getting used" to. After a while its not too hard. Now I am at a point to play the demo just with the pistol. That's kind a fun. Have to try this with the sniper portion. Keeps me busy until I can actually buy it.
The spin machine. Funny. Play Beyond. Funnier. I have both and now your dissin' like an 8 year old who got his loolipop stolen. So I get 2 disagrees.
Connect your 360 to VGA and compare the demos to the PS3 on a non-native 720p display and then you can disagree.
Or perhaps you dont know jack about televisions. Are you suggesting I but a SONY tv? Blind fanboys.
Many TVs, especially LCD TVs have a resolution of 1366x768. Look it up. Problem is you dont have both and cant compare. That is why yours looks "sweet" in your opinion.
My TV does 720p, just not native. My opinion.
All I am saying is Sony could give us VGA support and make all HDTV adopters happy. Until then, multi-platform games for my TV look better on the 360. So, I will be only buying exclusives for the PS3. It does not help that PS3 attach rate so much.
By the way, I want the PS3 to succeed. You wanna disagree with that?
720p looks very nice(the sweet spot now). I think since your t.v has a weird native resolution the ps3 might be downscaling ur games.. good luck with that and happy gaming.
so you're basing your entire position on a gimped "720" display that can't even do it natively and you expect anyone to take you seriously??
Im playing it on a 42" Philips 1080p LCD Display with 5ms response time.
trust me johnny, right now the PS3 does everything better harder and more intense than the 180.
sofaking.. its no use
I have a BenQ video projector. Via VGA it supports 720p. Problem is to get a Component cable to VGA converter where I live (South Africa). Most shops have no clue what I am asking for. They keep on trying to sell the composite cable to me. The easiest would be to just give us a VGA cable - and that will make all of the video projectors with VGA ports give us 720p support.
I at last found someone that understood what I was asking for - now getting a specially made up cable with the VGA part in 5 meter length - because the projector is mounted on the ceiling. But it could have so much time and effort if I could walk up to the counter and just ask - gimme a PS3 -> VGA cable.
Get a life and a girlfriend going out to anyone that thinks a cartoon is hot. Get out of your nerdy shell and get laid by a real chick.
The problem with our society is that everyone's just goin' out and screwing any and all people they can. This causes...STD's!!!
Now, imagine if these guys got their wishes. Then, CGI characters would start getting STD's!!! We can't have that!
Cartoon Abstinence my friends!
I don't think Kennedy's ever been laid :/ just a hunch
So I guess Sony's answer is no. No VGA. You screwed up and bought a Samsung now you should buy a Bravia. I guess I'll just have to cough up some dough to get that Phillips 1080p tv(even though many TVs do 1080p over VGA) to see the real power of the PS3. I thought the cell was enough.
Guess being a PS3 owner does not count for much.
And yes the PS3 is downscaling, that is why the picture is not as nice.
But, a VGA adapter would solve that problem. Better to spend 50 bucks on an adapter than sell a 1 and a half year old TV to get a native 1080p 0r 720p tv. The 180 or whatever you call it does fine on the TV I own now. Microsoft supplies VGA, component and HDMI. Why cant Sony?
in one model??
their HDMI adapter costs $479.00 right??
you're a tool...right?
Was I the only one with REALLY choppy framerate in the demo? Way too choppy for my taste
It was very smooth for me. Guess it was only you.
The issues I had was that the textures and lighting were clearly weaker than the 360 version(I did a side by side on my tv). As well as no bobbing effect on the PS3 version. It just felt wrong without it. :(
dont know about u. Watkins u should get an avatar.
the demo is not choppy, whoever said needs their eyes checked.
The shadows however, are not any better than on the xbox 360.
i use VGA with resolution 1280X1024 for my 360, but the game is kind of dark to begin with, i have to use night vision half the time, similar to rainbow 6.
I rented the game out on my 360 and the game is crappy to be honest. It was just GRAW 1 with better graphics, You sony fans should save your money and buy many of the better games coming out on the PS3 this year and next.
Why can't you people just refer to each other as gamers or not mention factions, period? :|
That I will agree with. Save your money. The first GRAW was much better.
My Fatal Frame III I just bought from Gamestop froze in the middle of a cutscene and I never saved. I need to go buy another copy...
I'm really sad though. That game was scary as heck for a little while.
Sorry clinton514 if I said sony fans, just refering to them to tell them to save up for the better games coming out. Gamers etc just save your money and buy all the better games coming out this year on PS3, Wii, PC, 360 etc.
played the demo it's gonna be great
