Epic's predominant work on Xbox may leave you concerned, as seems to be a trend this generation, that the PS3 version of Epic's latest, Bulletstorm, will be a cast-away port. Not so, promises Epic bog man Cliff Blezsinski.
I'll belive it when I see it.
We've heard this SO many times before, but no one actually delivers. They either say PS3 will be up to 360, or better. They say performance will be better, graphically equal, but then in comparison videos/screenshots, they end up being of lesser quality than 360.
You do realize Epic did Unreal Tournament III for the PS3, right? It was just as good as the other versions, was one of the first games to ship with rumble support, it is the only console version that contains the mod support, mouse/keyboard support, and the Titan expansion pack. Just because Gears of War is exclusive doesn't mean they are against the PS3 or morons when it comes to development. Plus they want to keep selling the Unreal engine license, so they aren't going to put out a version of the game that runs weak.
Yeah right that's what they all say. I'm done with multiplats and will never buy new again, it'll mostly be preowned if I even decided to pick it up. You can thank Treyarch, 2K and the rest for that. PS3 devs get priority! I'm not paying top dollar for second rate shit.
He said "Solid" not "Same as xbox 360". Sorry PS3 owners :( PC for me, looking like a very beautiful game, and when I say beautiful I am saying I am very impressed by all the colors.
Did Mr. Bleszinski really help with Unreal 3? Man that game was crap online. It had tons of potential though. Don't get me wrong, I really want him to be right. I just hope its not a hoax and he does what every third publisher has done to us this gen. Skimp our version of the game. This gen has changed alot, I miss the good ol days when devs were really passionate about the product no matter what platform it was on.
I'm sure it'll be fine, there are as many "broken" PS3 experiences as there are "fantastic" most experiences are either slightly lesser or equal to the 360's. people always remember the bad and forget the good. @ Andrew Ryan don't be sorry Andrew Ryan, PS3 owners will enjoy the game equally to any other platform, even PC, because enjoyment is subjective, and you don't know what you're missing out unless you, say, play the PC version first and PS3 version after, which will be a rare case. So to expect that PS3 owners will be cursing and crying over some missing pixels or some other details is silly. Sure if the game is BROKEN then it won't be fine, but most multiplats aren't, so please, don't be sorry.
@visualb Lot's of people complain however. I have a PS3 myself and whenever there is a multiplat game I usually always go for PC or the next platform that is superior. Is it not in your best interest to spend your money according to the quality of the item being bought? I do believe so. I love my PS3 for the exclusives but some of the multiplatform games are sort of a let down, not saying they are bad and sometimes the differences are not noticeable, but I mean to say that when they are I definitely will not buy the game. If you want to buy lesser games go ahead, it only shows the developer that you don't care if you get the "leftovers" so to speak. You could either go complain and call the developer (Which I am sure they are not going to care) or you can not buy the game and maybe they will finally say "Hey Bill, we really are not selling that much copies on the PS3. I think it is because we didn't make a good port... Maybe we should work harder next time!?", "Gee wiz Dylan! That sounds like a superb idea!"
Nothing to do with "Vanquish" but everything to do with UE3. Bulletstorm is not done by Epic themselves, though, but hopefully they brushed UE3 up for PS3 (where is the AA god damn?). That thing doesn't do much PS3 special magic - there should be room for MLAA.
Funny this pops up now. There were just showing a preview of the game on X-Play. The multiplayer looks sick. Very unique.
If they used all of PS3 power like it said in the article the 360 version would get the raw end of the stick I mean sure 360 gamers can disagree with me but we all know the PS3 can put out more if pushed enough games like Uncharted 2 proved this. So I don't believe this one bit. PS3 gamers will get a crappy port and then the 360 fanboys will just try give ps3 gamers and fanboys grief well guess what? We are here before the storm saying we don't care as we expect it.
You know that Uncharted 2 is basically smoke and mirrors to hell and back, right? It DOES take advantage of most of the PS3, however, the PS3 isn't a supah-megah-awesumzxDDD lolgraphix machine. In raw power, the PS3 lacks in memory and is just as limited as other consoles are. Honestly, I thought we all knew this by now. Not only that, but the main purpose of a multiplatform title is to basically make both versions EQUAL. Also, an exclusive developer usually gets more time to use a certain coding for a game, which means the focus is on said console and will take full advantage of it, unlike a multiplatform title that needs to have all platforms in mind. ...I don't even know why I'm explaining this, it should be common sense.
So what does UC2 have that is different from other games? So how about emphasize on it further so people can understand the technical marvel of UC2 right? Like for example what graphic engine did they used for the games to help clarifying how UC2 is different/above and beyond any other console games out there?
"...I don't even know why I'm explaining this, it should be common sense." - I'm a bit confused as well because you're clearly not the one to explain this! you don't now shit of what you're talking about! you mentioned about raw power, then you said lacks of memory! you mentioned about smoke and mirrors, I clearly can see you don't know the meaning of that term. and then you said "Also, an exclusive developer usually gets more time to use a certain coding for a game,..." - Uncharted 2 took just a mere 18 months to be made. http://gamer.blorge.com/200... dude, seriously, just shut up!
So i get disagree for asking people to clarify their claim? Quite funny, how do you disagree w/ a question? Question need answers right? LOL. You guys are quite funny.
Understandable as long as they don't make one "sub-hd" with poor textures compared to the 360 version, then they have delivered. Hopefully they end up like Batman: AA's multiplat quality standards on UE3. -End of Line
... But will it be on-par with the Xbox 360 version? In terms of frame-rate & visual quality.. That remains to be seen.
If it is Xbots will swear they got a gimped version.
Considering that Epic made Unreal Tournament III for PS3 which ran great, went above and beyond in order to take advantage of every little thing they could support on PS3 from trophies to mods to free DLC, and make the engine that powers hundreds of games, I'd say they know what they are talking about moreso than forum posters whose only expertise is screenshot comparisons that highlight differences that otherwise wouldn't be noticed by 99% of people.
THIS^ Hope they do take advantage of everything.
Not getting it onless its on pc
It's on the PC as well.
People can fly will not abandon the PC.
Repost.... from the Playstation Blog. >.>
Disagree? Look at the video yourself: http://blog.us.playstation....
lets get Gears working on XBL first buddy
clearly you havent played Gears 2 online since Title Update 6 like 6+ months ago. Gears 2 works brilliantly online now - client side hit detection on more guns, region filters, and better matchmaking. what i find funny about this article/game is that people still for some reason seem to think that Epic Games are making Bulletstorm - theyre not! Bulletstorm is made by People Can Fly, with Epic just kinda there to help them with the engine (since its made using UE3) and promoting/hyping. it must suck to be an employee at People Can Fly, knowing they could release the best game of the year and people will give Epic the credit for it. i cant wait for Bulletstorm, it looks fantastic. easily my most awaited FPS along with Bioshock Infinite.
Yeah Epic owns them and probably helps minimally. Epic is mainly focused on Gears 3 obviously. And Gears Kinect?
Meh, this game holds no interest for me at all. I dont see the attraction.
Really? I think it looks fun, that's enough for me.
I havent been following it avidly, just none of the videos really spark my interest. I think I'm just not into these fantasy shooters, I prefer them grounded a bit more in real life. Killzone, Rainbow 6 and Brothers in Arms are probably my current favourites, but Resistance in probably an exception to that rule. Even though its aliens, its still set in a gritty real world type situation and location. Still, I hope you enjoy it.
Haha, how is Killzone in there with R6 & Brothers?? Killzone is SciFi as hell hah.
Well what I said about Resistance I was going to say could relate to KZ too. Its Sci Fi pretty much only because its on another planet. They're aliens, but they look human. Its set in a world that has physics and environments, much like ours. It has mostly realistic, plausable weapons, not plasma rifles and needle guns. Plus it looks about a thousand times better than Bulletstorm which doesnt hurt.
aww naw man it looks awesome. I'm just hoping its long, and not just a rushed tacked on SP with MP as main attraction. still, the game looks promising =) too many serious FPS's, we need some fresh air I have my eye on this game
just looks like another typical epic game on the unreal engine
Typically Epic games are great. And they just so happen to use Unreal. I fail to see a problem.
I agree, if you watch the newest episode of Qore. The game looks like a mediocre sci-fi shooter. I'm not saying it won't be fun, but it doesn't look appealing to me.
another BOOM!HEADSHOT! shooter for the frat boys to get in a lather about. Considering all the fresh, exciting new prospects on the horizon - oh like say, Catherine, L.A. Noire, The Last Guardian, LittleBigPLanet 2 - a title like Bulletstorm has never looked more by-the-numbers.
A heads up for people, in the GI mag, both KZ3 and Bulletstorm are releasing February 22. So you have a choice...maybe =D
Thats like a choice between should I breathe, or not breathe.
Not sure if that is smart from Epic...lol
I will be plopping my money down for Killzone 3 first, as I think they both release in Feb. I will try the game. If I like it and it runs equally well, or better on the PS3 I will consider purchasing it. Edit: WTF, both releasing on the same day. Very strange..
Thanks, But No Thanks
Epic games, please stick to the 360. I hope Microsoft will buy you out and make never a PS3 game.
Why would you want to limit the PS3 like this? I want all developers creating games for my system so I can have the most diverse gaming experience possible.
why? whats this obsession. I feel many these "trolls" and console fanatics want LESS games available to them, not more =/ give me an inferior yet still enjoyable game to the 360 over NO GAME AT ALL.
Now we're going to trust a "guy" with a tattoo of Bill Gates on his rump?
What momma dont know... Wont hurt her...
I was thinking of getting this for my PC, hopefully it won't be a disaster like Activision's Black Ops.
it will be similar on both consoles from the multiplatform games i have play on both the xbox and the ps3 i can say that games on the 360 have better lightning while games on the ps3 have better texture
Everybody here is hating the game and Cliff just because he made Gears for 360. It's sad,but is true.
Im not sure about this game. It looks fun but it kind of reminds me of unreal tournament. I was hoping for more of gears of war like feel but its cool, ill still check this out but I need to see more to really catch me. Looks pretty good though.
The only peeps I trust for PS3 performance are second party devs and first party devs. The graphics are great for this gen but as good performance and graphics as exclusive PS3 games? nopez
They have to talk up the game and re-assure PS3 owners. But it's just spin & politics. I mean, it's not like they'd ever admit the PS3 will be the worst version of the game prior to release, it would hurt sales. TBH, don't know why i'm commenting on a game that will be ultimately be overshadowed by Gears 3 for 360 owners & KZ3/R3 for PS3 owners. And there's Crysis to consider too. Bulletstorm's not even on my radar...I have no intentions of purchasing, but i'm sure it'll find a niche market though.
vid looks good... and now even Cliffy B. gives BlueRay a nod... he joins the list of developers who are pro BR
Come to teh darkside...we have teh cell.
This is a People Can Fly game, not Epic and especially not Cliffy B's. In other words, it's going to be awesome.
So if the game was designed By Epic it would be horrible? Just asking.
It'd be average, like Gears of War and the, sigh...pains me to say it...recent Unreal Tournament.
MS slowing the ps3 down mgs4 is longer then any 360 game..thats how u no 360 games make ps3 games shorter when games on both system..
most games are short because of the 360 stop slowing the ps3 down we ant long games not short games
@Cajun Chicken I don't really care much for Epic Games, since their PS3 output is poor. But you have to admit Cliffy B is a quality developer/producer. If he was heading up a Sony studio, PS3 owners would be showing mad respect for him. So I don't see why people get lemon (sour) just because he made his fame & fortune the 'other' console. It's simple business and economics. We have Guerilla, Insomniac, Santa Monica, Sucker Punch.... just to name a few. I think both sides are doing pretty well.
I hate Gears of War, and his feel of Gears got put into Unreal Tournament 3. I mean...it says "From the Makers of Gears of War" on the box. This is the third game in the series, of spinoffs based on a pre-existing universe, which existed before Gears of War and was better before the 'attitude' of Gears of War got into it. No, Cliffy B does not make good games, he makes money out of a series with minimal plot, violence because of the sake of it, a rubbish universe plus backstory and what you can barely call characters. He's just a mouth piece to say he had a hand in games...because y'know...he's a 'dude' and 'hardcore', apparently. Cliffy B leaves a trail of broken stereotypes, terrible backstories, token characters and an ego which I'm looking forward to get brought down. Epic are great developers. But mainly when the influence of Cliffy B stays the heck away from the rest of the team.
Cliffy B ruined Unreal Tournament 3 which is one of my favorite franchise. As much as i like gears, i wish that he won't touch UT series.
example: ima ENSLAVED fan but the game was really short but good if it was just on the ps3 it would of been longer..
you mean like heavenly sword long?
Epic are good developers and if they are working on the ps3 version it will be top notch. I have UT3 for PS3 and it runs really good and looks really good. Only thing is that since its running on UE3 you can see lot of the map loading before it starts but thats not something that affects gameplay or is an issue whatsoever.
