Vanquish 360 version is subHD 1024x720 with 2xAA

Initial analysis from the 360 demo of Vanquish reveals it's resolution.

PS3 demo will be available later today during the PS Store update.

The story is too old to be commented.

its not that low of resolution to begin with

lovemyps32659d ago

Damn that sucks for 360 owners, either way everyone should buy the game 360 and ps3 owners, it looks great regardless.

SuperTiger2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

The PS3 version might be worse.
I hope it won't be but they're the guys who made Bayonetta so I don't expect much.


Why am I getting disagrees? :\


Are you sure this is true? I hope it is!

MisterNiwa2659d ago

Get your news straight.

The PS3 is the lead platform for this game. And the Team is lead by Shinji Mikami this time. He didn't do Bayonetta.

Tricksy2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

not a bad resolution in my mind as long and FPS(frames per second) is nice and, although I dont have an xbox and never will, the xbox has a reputation as a good machine for FPS's (frames well as first person shooters i guess hehe).

If this is from the creators of Bayonetta... expect them to not know how to utilize the cell. :(

EDIT: Oh? Great news MisterNiwa. Fingers crossed this game looks stunning on the PS3.

scofios2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

Mikami has stated that the game is being developed with the PlayStation 3 as its lead platform .
Bayonetta was developed with the xbox 360 as the lead platform . platinium games made bayonetta as an xbox exlusive , which later on became a multiplatform game due to sega who is the publisher and who did the ps3 port .
edit : for those who disagree .
Go google it up . i see some people are butt hurt use vaseline next time .

rockleex2659d ago

Seeing as how Vanquish was made by Platinum Games on BOTH platforms to begin with, it should do pretty well on both systems.

I never really trust developers when they claim one system is the lead platform or whatever.

Just look at Ghostbusters. -_-"

inveni02659d ago

If the vertical resolution is 720 or above, I'm happy. Of course, I don't have a 360, so we'll see what the deal is on the PS3, I guess. I'll make my decision on the game itself, though...not a pixel count.

Double Toasted2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

Ah, no Gears of War killer here folks, move along...ha.

PS3 holding the 360 back in terms of graphics, huh? Shame really...

wicko2659d ago

Even though the control scheme is a bit wonky (crazy japs) the game itself is awesome. Comparing this to Gears of War isn't all that fair, since this game does a hell of a lot more interesting stuff than Gears does.

Conloles2659d ago

Lol poor consoles never in true 1080P HD :'(

jacobdevos2658d ago

lead by that guy.. but the same team as bayonetta right?

So I'm not sure he was wrong.. he said the same guys and he's right.. if you've ever worked in a programming environment you know that the guy who leads development typically doesn't even write or read the code..

PS3 is lead platform for this game though i remember an article about that.. although a couple comments on this post have been saying it's the same engine as bayonetta? that seems a bit confusing.. how could ps3 be the lead platform when its on bayonettas engine.. whos lead platform was x360?

mastiffchild2658d ago

Conloles-do you NEVER stop? People don't all want to game on their PC even if you do. Personally, I've started gaming more on consoles this generation because I got sick of mouse and keyboard controls, feeling the need to improve my set up(not including upgrading cards etc but JUST my gaming mouse etc)all the time and finding it a bigger barrier to immersion than any resolution issues ever. I found it was TOO good, if you wil, and I was capabe of almost game breaking speed and accuracy with PC controls schemes and also found the online felt less and less of an even playing field with everyone using different control schemes, different tech and often cheating with the choices they made with console mods etc.

I'm not saying I',m right but just showing that that PC and M/K isn't first choice for everyone for many reasons. i'm miles BETTER with a mouse etc and even then find aiming on a separate plane feels too unrealistic these days(again JUST for me) and a lot of folk like the convenience of a console but you just want to look down on people for not being PC gamers and PC gamers alone. What of the console only games we all love? We should forgo them just cos you get 1080p more often? Idiocy, elitist idiocy and the kind of 'tude which splits us as a community and ensured console gamers didn't care, when they should have, when MW2 went P2P on PC and when the pirates ensured there was no proper , full featured DA2 on PC. It's possible because people like you make console gamers hate PC gamers as elitist tools.

I refused to buy Alan Wake BECAUSE they shafted PC gamers over it and if fewer PC gamers acted like you, mate, maybe more console gamers would have and Remedy would have released it on PC.

I would NEVER be witrhout my rig and love my PC gaming even if I use a pad for it where possible but fail to see just what makes you bitter with console owners when the biggest enemy for PC gamers is the rife piracy we suffer making our PC games less profitable. Moan at them not consoles FFS. Another thing-my PC monitor is only 26" and at that size I'd say no one could tell me when they were playing at 720 as opposed to 1080p anyway so your resolution talk is VERY subjective in value when most monitors are even smaller than mine!!

Tell u wot-play some games. might make you a bit calmer rather than trolling console threads advertising the fact you like PC best. Both have their places.

Scrooge2658d ago

Yeah, how will I ever enjoy this game when it's missing a few pixels per square inch?

tplarkin72658d ago

Anything less than 720p is "subHD". Like it or not, 720p is standard HD for games this gen.

sikbeta2658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )


They didn't, Sega dealt with the Port, Platinum got nothing to do with the port and this time Shinji Mikami is working on this game, so hopefully, there will be no problems for the PS3 version...

@Double Toasted

Hmmm... I don't know pal, something tells me it's going to be like FF13 disaster all over again....

Still not a good thing. The faint blurriness will be noticeable. For such a fast paced game I hope the PS3 version is a crisp and clean 720P but I doubt it :(

Funny how different the tech is from Bayonetta

Bayonetta 360

Vanquish 360 (using a highly upgraded Bayonetta Engine)

dosgrtr2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

so it is 30

Christopher2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

There's a ton more happening in this game than Bayonetta. I can see why the downgrade for both physics and maintaining a certain framerate.

Not that I wouldn't want more, but can see why it resulted in a downgrade of this sort.

As long as it's good looking (not awesome) and fun to play, I'll be happy... when I can get to playing it.

@disagreers: Aww... crap, I forgot I'm not supposed to support games, I'm supposed to chose to support 360 or PS3 and bash the other. My bad *rolls eyes*

raztad2659d ago


Sorry about those undeserved disagrees. You, as always, make sense and some people dont like it.

Let me support your point, and this is something people seems to forget frequently when talking about graphics. Vanquish looks to have a lot more stuff going on on screen, + stuff under the hood, like collision detection, AI, physics, that werent in Bayonetta.

I'm totally surprised game is not 60fps but achieve to feel look very fast paced. Probably is just a very smart use of motion blur.

MorganX2659d ago

Just tried the demo. Lots of potential. Gears cover system feels tighter. Better than I thought it would be but, noticeably blurry. Unacceptably blurry.

StanLee2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

Did you play Bayonetta? There is certainly not more going on on screen that in Bayonetta. I wonder if fanboys will say now the PS3 gimped the XBox 360 version because that is exactly what happened.

totallysane2658d ago

what does it matter. the game looks good and is fun to play for now. get over the goddam graphics will you people

mastiffchild2658d ago

Stanlee-you're being daft. The 360 version of Bayonetta was complete before a PS3 version was even started. Talk with a bit more sense-if Bayonetta was better looking than GOW3 then, even with the above reasoning, you might have a point but as there are better games on both consoles I have NO idea what you mean by anything being "gimped" other than if they downplayed BOTH versions late in the day to ensure "parity" this generations multiplat cancer.

Seriously, if the PS3 was gimping 360 versions of anything where are the exclusives to prove what you speak of? Where are the 360 games that eclipse Uncharted1, let alone U2, GOW or KZ2?

Why are people worried about the PS3 version? The PS3 is the lead performer of this game. Therefore, the PS3 version is superior.

Biggest2659d ago

That remains to be seen. Either way, the game does look like a blast to play and the acting seems horrible in the very entertaining way. Should be good all around.

bjornbear2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

PS3 was the lead platform for ghost busters...and look what happened.

I could care less. This is more important for fanboys than for real gamers (exception of Multi-console owners who will simply buy the better version and care less about commenting on it)

regardless, this game and Lord Of Shadow are both proving to be the multi-plat heavy hitters of this Q3 =D

this, Lord of shadow, GT5 and LBP2 are the 4 games on my radar for this xmas (way too many for my budget =()

meetajhu2659d ago

i disagree with you because u have Ipad as a ur name!

And it begins, any word on ps3 version?

jay22659d ago

Nothing on the PS3 virsions, but this downgrade is a bit worrying....

jizzyjones2659d ago

PS3 is lead platform, jus like 360 was lead on Beyonetta, so this time the PS3 version will be "superior".

Tuxedoassassin2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

The PS3 is lead praform for this game, so itˇs hard to guess, but we see more later.
