Microsoft and Bizarre Creations released these images of Project Gotham Racing 4.
the raindrops on the car looks pretty good.
Oh baby! Next gen racing only on the 360! With this and Forza 2 I have the best of both worlds: Sim and Arcade!
sweet, looking mighty good
Now THIS is living.
PS3 owner here, don't have a 360 but DAYAMN! This game looks sweet. Being a motorcyclist this game just OOZES appeal! Can't say yet if it's enough for me to get a 360 but I gotta admit I'm jealous! lol =p
The close up of the bike crossing the bridge looks stunning!
Check out the draw distance behind the bike in the 5th pic. The texture work is the best I've seen.
I bet this is taken in photo mode :)
Yeah. Photo Mode is great. But the actual gameplay video's dont show this much of level (obviously). I will compare because they are both races, but GT5 looks better than this. If you dont believe me, do a side by side comparison of the videos.
I dont think you guys read developer's comments on Forza which had something similar. Anyways lets wait for the game to come out and then make the judgments.
The game looks awesome.
Like someone pointed out , maybe, they should of had this team do the Forza 2 graphics..hehe
The 5th pic looks awesome, as well as the raindrops looking sick..
Man..I love the 360, so many great and high-profile games in 2007, plus some surprises..(bioshock).
Still more to come..
But those graphics are completely different to when you're actually racing. In PGR, there is a mode called Photo Mode where you pause the game and in real-time, you can zoom in into the cars and environments. Yes it shows what the machine is capable of and how much work went into the game, but go watch actual gameplay and you'll see that these details are hardly apparent.
I noticed it in PGR3, and anyone who owns the game knows what im talking about. It does not look as good as GT5 but it does look very good.
I'll show you what I mean. In GT Prologue, there is a My Page at the start in where you can see your car of choice in this background. This is somewhat similar to Photo Mode, but the details shown in this are just as good as that. But you wont see that detail/environment scope in the actual GAMEPLAY.
That GT5 pic you posted is also from photo mode ;) The backgrounds and road textures look very sparse. It's easy to choose the pics that make the other game look bad.
That was my point. If people want to compare the two, compare the gameplay. But if you want to compare these type of images then please make the distinction.
till GT5 comes out, this will keep me happy. No way I am going to buy Prologue which despite what fanboys would say is an extended demo nothing more.
edit: GT5 lighting overall feels more real but PGR4 has this sort of dull look that is also realistic not to mention weather effects.
Prologue is a full game with Online multiplayer, Darth. It was thought to be just a demo but the presentation by the developers proved otherwise. You can go to http://www.gametrailers.com... and learn more.
maybe you should shut up about pgr and just wait for prologue instead of having a cow
There is no point in arguing on whether Prologue is an extended demo or a full game in itself as it seems futile but I can understand that some people love GT series or only own a PS3 and can't wait for GT5 to come out.
edit: in comparison to GT5 that is coming out later, Prologue is not a full game, its more like Half Life: Day One if you know what I am speaking of. Thats all I have to say about it
Some people compared the two games and I added my opinion. I think they look great, both of them but personally GT Prologue looks better to me.
I then responded to Darth's impression that its just a demo, well its not. It's a full game with every feature you'd expect. And I am right.
So whats the issue?
These are beautiful no doubt, but I want to see some in-game photos and/or videos.
LOL at these people in here making excuses I'v seen gameplay for both games the PS3 game still trails.
The PS3 game is lifeless with dull color and no effects.
Wow this game is looks great, can't wait for it but I'm really not sure whether I should preorder this or CoD4.
til GT5 comes out. Just Wait. 720p 30fps seems to be our thing for a system that boast 1080p. Wonder what happened??? It's the dev's fault that's it blame them.
PGR4 has the edge with the 360 being slightly more powerful the weather, night and day changing, and the environments and weather physics on the cars gives PGR4 the edge graphiclly.
#9 that pic you post is of a jazzed up envrionment to make the game look better than it actaully does and isn't part of the game world anything you see in PGr4 is in the game and still looks that good.
better graphix than GT5
The difference between Forza 2 and GT5 is as great as the difference between PGR4 and GT5, GT5's environments and lack of advanced effects scream been there done that.
GT5 tree's are cardboard slabs cross sectioned, PGR4 looks like discovery HD.
GT5 is MUCH earlier in production than PGR4 (ie graphics/effect are not finalized)
GT5 WILL include full damage modelling.
Now: These are PHOTOMODE. Even those shots you just put in your post are almost certainly photo mode. I really, really want to believe that the in-game is as detailed and anti-aliased as these (insanely beautiful) shots, though.
It feels to me that Bizzare is pulling the exact same bullshot they did with PGR 3. If you can give me a 720P link to GAMEPLAY footage that looks as clean as these shots, I will believe you. As a fellow 360 Owner I would be overjoyed if this time BC's game actually looks like these screens.
Poly phonys focus will be the cars as always the track/enviroments will not match the 200k poly on the cars which serve no purpose in PGR4 sense the paint on the cars are always covered. Nothing will change much visually in GT5.
It just doesn't matter what you people say PGR4 as a full package looks better than GT5.
"GT5 is much earlier in production than PGR4", You mean its taking much longer to develope, many racers have damage does it mean its going to be matching Dirt and Forza in physics or have FlatOut complexity nope!.
Why waste so much time making GTHD's and GT5P's etc?.
GTHD, GT prologue and GT5 proper are all stages of the same game.
I finally did find E3 offscreen PGR4 footage and it does look great. Way better than PGR3..So maybe these screens are for real..we will see
Edit: let me clarify about GT5: seems to me my showing "vison GT" in 2005 they were showing the ultimate goal of what GT5 would look like...What we are seeing appears to be the different stages in that process. (GT HD used assets from GT4, GT5 Prologue will use some assets from GT5 proper. Instead of waiting six years in silence, we are seeing the game as it developes..Kind of like how Valve is developing the HL episodes.
Different stages! thanks I was thinking that but did not wan't to say anything, strange!. GT5 is slightly dull and lifeless lacking Photo real vibrance to say the least.
To tell you the truth GT5 isn't that different from Forza 2 in looks less shinny and thats about it.
Top: PS3 game(GT5) and on the, Bottom: two 360(Forza 2).
Holy Nuts!! I just saw the intro video off Gamersyde, some of it truly looks photorealistic.
I can't believe the video was posted here yet has only 4 comments and isn't even on the first page..it even appears to be showing some gameplay in it. Wow! I hope this isn't delayed to long, it looks astounding.
This looks awesome. Can't wait to ride a bike in PGR4.
mmm..... PGR 4 have betters graphics and look more cool than GT5
