game looks better during replay

Hideo_Kojima2553d ago

Why is everyone disagreeing with him :S
I thought that the replays use higher polygon models too.

Correct me if am wrong because I want to know even though am getting my copy tomorrow morning no matter what.

Hideo_Kojima2553d ago

So why is everyone disagreeing with me :S

Am I right or wrong at list let me know :-/

Replay mode uses in-game assets. It just adds post-processing effects like motion blur and depth of field.

You must be thinking of Forza, which uses different LOD models for gameplay and replay modes.

Bathyj2552d ago (Edited 2552d ago )

Information Minister is correct.

GT5 uses the exact same model in replay. It just has some different effects turned on.

Forza puts a higher poly model in replays because it cant run them ingame.

Hideo_Kojima2552d ago

@Information Minister


The mailman is going to bring my copy in around 8 hours I think I will go wait behind the door.

Lifendz2552d ago

Man, there's a lot of butthurtedness among 360 fanboys when they see these vids. U mad?

ryuzu2552d ago (Edited 2552d ago )

Just to clarify, the replays use an extra step AA and motion blur - these 2 things differentiate them from in game.

EDIT : A similar thing is done in that other game btw but it still doesn't match GT5P of course.


raztad2552d ago (Edited 2552d ago )

I read the "other game" uses a much higher polygon count during replays and a higher Level of Detail (than during races), on top of post-processing + AA as you state. To do that it drops the framerate to 30fps.

If what people say is true GT5 cars (in races) have the same number of polygons than on replays. Anybody knows what is the framerate of GT5 replays?

number472552d ago (Edited 2552d ago )

raz, 30fps.

The other game also switches out models from the start of the race, with the cameras angles all around the car.. and when you start the race. 2 different LOD's.

acky12552d ago

So GT5 does look better in replay mode because they use effects not present when racing to enhance the visuals?

creatchee2552d ago

Why is everyone downplaying post-processing effects?

Yes, they make replays look better.

No, this isn't how the "real" game looks.

Yes, the "real" game still looks and runs phenomenally.

Using enhanced replays as graphical prowess isn't as misleading as using CGI cutscenes or upscaled "bullshots", but it's similar and such replays are not indicative of the graphical experiences a player will have during realtime gameplay.

Even so, those videos were crazy looking! I might actually watch replays now instead of just tapping the button to get to the next race.



That's the funniest shit I have seen in this entire year!!! I can't stop laughting right now!!!!!!

Gameplay = replay

And direct feed gameplay screens

These screens even look close to photomode.

Sunny_D2553d ago

Dude, that first pic is mind boggling. It soo real, it's insane! I really hope a patch comes out to turn off HUD.

bambam19012553d ago (Edited 2553d ago )

Awesome shots! Can't believe I'll actually be playing this in less than 3 days. Can anyone tell me why I can still see comments from numbnuts like Units even though he is ignored?

N4WAH2553d ago

Those shots are eyegasmic!
The anticipation is finally getting to me.
I am going to have a meltdown!

2 more days!
2 more days!
Be strong!

Now if only we could turn off the HUD it would make this game so epic with the lights off using an HDTV

Xusuyzus2552d ago (Edited 2552d ago )

I'm sure they will fix that, if people really want it,..You can turn of the map though,.. I kinda like having as much info as I can with the glance,..So I can perfect some lines,..
It is like 15Kb worth of patch,..

But this is going to be such a treat,.. Saw a video of a day-night cycle,.. and guy behind him turned on the lights and it lit up his cabin a bit,.. lol he spun off,..

Spitfire_Riggz2552d ago

.... Those pictures are stunning.. For Shinginos I really thought they were real cars

King-Leonidas2552d ago

To unlock full damage, you have to be level 20 and onwards in GT5!

Maybe if someone posted a 2D racing game youd be more impress with its realism.

You see the most stunning and realistic visuals ever and you say "meh"...

xYLeinen2553d ago

It's been 5 years.

That's all I got to say..

bambam19012553d ago (Edited 2553d ago )

Well, Alan Wake and Too Human took 5+ years to make and they're no GT5. That's all I have to say.

shoddy2552d ago

Now that is the fail of the century.

Ducky2552d ago (Edited 2552d ago )

What do you mean by other developers not starting from scratch?

Anyways, graphics, as with all the previous GT games, look stunning.

soundslike2552d ago

Too Human was rebuilt multiple times and ran into a lot of issues not applicable with Polyphony Digital

dragon822552d ago

PD also released GT5:P and GT PSP during that time and built GT5 from the ground up. I don't see too many other devs doing that with a game of this quality.

xYLeinen2552d ago

What the heck is wrong with you guys? I don't give a crap about what you feel about GT5 or whatever. It comes down to that I've been waiting 5 years for this GT5 racer on the PS3.

jizzyjones2553d ago

Neither its Gran Turismo 4 upscaled......jus kiddin
