The excellent F.E.A.R. was announced as a launch title for PS3 yesterday, and these five images were released.
yep, that a good one. nice to have it on the ps3.
What the crap is this? I come to this site EVERYDAY and have never registered. This article has forced me to do so. These are the Worst screenshots I have ever seen. i consider myself a Sony fan (NOT A FANBOY), but only because i have never considered owning an Xbox.
I have debated for weeks if i'll get a 360 or not, but when i see screens like this I cry. For all the power the PS3 has, For all of it's superiority, why does it look like poo??
Thats it. i have €600 in my bank account sitting there. Tomorrow I join "The other Side".
Hmmmm, i have never played a console online. Wonder what its like?
Well if you look at the comments within that article you will see a link to the 360 version . . . not any better.
I agree the screens look like crap. This could be because we don't have the capability to view them on a HD set with the PS3 or 360 as of yet. Or it could be that it plain sucks.
there are a few reasons why you should not join the other side.
A:online is free and you wont have to keep throwing in $50 a year that you could be spending on more games
B:you have to put into consideration that this game has been announced for the xbox360 at e3, thats over four mounths so you can expect the graphics to look alot better RIGHT NOW. vivendi is not going to make a crappy looking title for the ps3 but a great looking one for the xbox360
just please wait for more screens at the very least before you buy a xbox360. the game isn't coming out for a while so please reconsider. and look at games like resistance fall of man. those graphics are pimpin!
just please wait because you may regret it in the long run
and console online is really fun like on killzone or halo 2
i just don't like that you cant mod or use a keyboard and mouse(you can use k & m on the ps3, but not on the xb360)
spreading mis information are you. Not cool buddy.
1. xbox live is free for 3 months with the purchase of most live games.
2. xbox live year subscription is 36 dollars at walmart and through the dashboard you can pay monthly if you like.
3. the xbox had an adapter to use keyboard and mouse. I'm sure there will be one for the 360. its made by a 3rd party and it worked beautifully.
4. you get more bang for your GAMING buck with the 360. You will see many of the same games with identical graphics/gameplay but with less of an investment. So with that extra 200 dollars you save you can buy extra controllers or games. Sure, you can't watch blu ray movies on the 360 out the box...but if what you want is to watch blu ray movies on your 1080p tv...then get the ps3. But if you want next gen games, and money to spare for more games. Get the 360. The choice is clear. Jump In. We welcome you and don't demand you to chang3.
Look at this pic from the 360 version:
and then at the PS3 version:
Did they downgrade the PS3 version?
but because it's really blurry for...some odd reason. o well.
the be honest. the ps3 version has more detail and looks far smoother.
they will say oh its blurry lol lol lol lol.
no fony fans its running at a lower res lol lol lol 1080p loll lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol ool lol lol lol lol lol lol lol
I hope they take advantage of its power though instead of just doing a straight port.
The ps3 looks like sh!t. Its bland.
the 360 version has been in development for how long? The PS3 version just got started up.
how many more times will i hear you PS3 fans say that?lol
They look the same. If you can find that much of a difference you are looking for something that isn't there
Look at the PS2. Those were the worse graphics of current gen. Sony should have been ashamed of themselves for making that. Truth is the PS3 does not need the "Cell" Blu-ray or a HDD. IT will outsell the 360 with PS2 graphics period.
To:DJ how long has the PS3 version been in development ? You don't know sh8t so shut up. The fact is most PS3 launch titles have been in dev longer that 360 launch titles. And PS3 will not be competing against 360 launch titles. You forget the console was delayed. Remember when xbox came out after PS2. The launch titles killed the PS2's launch titles. Some PS3 games have looked the same since E3 05. But fanboy blinders keep ppl from seeing that. This also happens with 360 fangirls. Who cares anyway PS3 will outsell 360 on hype alone. Who needs games and graphics. The first 5 mill will sale without games. Don't ever pull screen shots from different web sites that is not a far comparison of games. Also if the screen is from different locations then it does not matter.
You keep talking about how much a bargin the PS3 is but you got a PS2. This is were I have a hard time understanding Sony sheep. PS2 had not biult in ethernet, no HDD, no 4 controller support, but for some reason it was okay. It would cost thousands of $$$ to build a PS2 up to a xbox, but it was okay. The reason is because of the games. In the end it's about the games. You guys come here everyday not gaming but posting. Consoles have become more of talk about than a do thing. Eitherway got a 360, getting a wii, and picking up PS3 when something other that MGS4 looks good. Killzone PS3 baby. You know the E3 05 killzone. Sucks to be a console fangirl.
I was playing Jak & Daxter (which was the technological powerhouse of its time) and...the graphics are hideous compared to its sequels. Jak 3 pushes at least 3 times more polys and has much better textures, on top of a slew of particle and cloth fx. It was a bit of a sobering experience 'cause it makes me think about how much better the PS3 games are going to get in a few years time. Most of them already look amazing.
I still don't understand why people claim that the PS2 was the weakest console; true, it's GPU was shoddy and only had 4mb of texture memory, but it had the best CPU out of all 4 consoles. It rocked at floating point calculations and the devs that used the vector units properly did amazing things that couldn't be replicated on the Xbox or Gamecube. Even the polygon counts are higher on PS2.
Sadly, it had a sh1tty amount of texture memory, only 32 mb of system ram compared to GC's 48 and Xbox's 64, and the fact that SIMD was hell for most developers (since they'd never worked with it before. same with assembly code). Luckily devs like Criterion, Naughty Dog, Kojima Productions, Insomniac, Incog, Team Soho, and Team ICO got their hands dirty and worked a lot of magic. PS2 had almost no general purpose capabilities, but current games don't rely that much on general purpose code anyway.
That's why when i see people flaunting the 'general purpose power of the 360' and dismiss floating point I can't help but laugh. It's a technological repeat of last generation, only this time Sony created a chip that's a lot more accessible and exponentially more powerful than anything on the market. It rocks at floating point, which is needed for graphics, physics, particles, cloth simulation, you name it. I think it'll take about another year before the majority of PS3 games start overshadowing the 360 titles, but even the launch titles such as Warhawk, Resistance, Motorstorm, and Heavenly Sword are showing hints of this power. It's not just about graphics, it's about number of opponents, their intelligence, the physics simulations, and all that stuff that goes on behind the scenes.
True, superior power doesn't guarentee better gameplay. But it does allow for better games. The fewer technological restrictions developers have, the easier it is for them to carry out their visions. And Sony works hard to support their developers. Heavenly Sword was ignored by Microsoft, but Sony took the team under their wing and supported their vision. Insomniac is an independent game company that chooses to work with Sony because they provide superior hardware and support. Factor 5 pitched their idea for LAIR to numerous companies, and ended up becoming a 2nd party PS3 developer because of Sony's unwillingness to compromise and the gameplay possibilities their hardware allows.
The list goes on and on. It's funny that Microsoft is saying "It's games, not power that matters" when they don't have the power advantage this generation and definitely didn't have the software advantage last generation. It's too early in the game to tell how bad/good the 360 will do because Sony has only revealed half of what we need to know about their console. Hell, we don't even know what the RSX is, and it's only 3 months till launch. Sony's strategy is to keep quiet about things till the last second, while Microsoft relies on viral campaigns and leaked images and information for...everything (if it's unintentional, that's just sad).
Sony has a lot of work ahead of them though, and if they falter Microsoft will take full advantage. They kind of screwed up their 1 year lead and desperately need a second chance to hold onto their lead (shortages, not many AAA titles, etc). Sony has yet to explain to the general public why the $500 version is actually not a 'tard pack' and that it has a lot more capabilities than the high-end 360. I know this, but most people don't. Most people don't have a clue what HD means (or even what it looks like), let alone what Blu-ray or HD-DVD are. I mean you ask anyone on the street about the RSX and they'll probably say "By Acura?"
Sony realizes that too many technical terminologies can be extremely confusing and will probably market the PS3 as much more than a game console. To do that they'll need some incredible game footage as well, but they might not even end up marketing it as a multimedia center. For those who've taken marketing you know what I mean. Just look at the first advertisement for the PS2, the PS9 commercial. Didn't show a single piece of gameplay (exact opposite of Microsoft's strategy), but it made a lot of people want to find out what the hell a PS2 was. Sony will probably resort to this same strategy and not market it as a game console, a media center, or even a system that brings all the pieces of your living room together with you at the center. Nah. We'll probably end up with a bunch of "Play Beyond" posters and something similar to the PS9 commercial. The media tends to spread most of the information FOR Sony anyway, so the buzz will spread. If this old strategy works, I'll be shocked. But sometimes old tricks are the best tricks.
BTW, if you want to see where PS3 games are going to end up (visually at least) download the 720p trailer of LAIR here:
I've watched the GDC developers video so I can assure you those are in-game dragon models.
do you work for sony?
is kunt kataragi up ur a$$?
when the ps3 comes out in november , u will see for ur self how over hyped it IS,
games will look better on the 360 due to the easy programing on it unlike the ps3 ,,,,
u need to smash ur head against the wall to snap out of the sony trance ....
sony r well known for there false marketing ,,
if u fall for there bull $HIT ,, THEN YOU NEED HELP ....
as for devs saying how gr8 the ps3 is etc lol do you think they will say bad things concidering they have millions riding on it .( developing a game for it)????????
What makes you actually believe that trailer is gameplay? lol....lol....lol....lol Honestly. Show us were you read that lair cgi video from E3 is gameplay. I haven't seen or read one thing saying that it was playable or using the gameplay engine in that video. Are you just hoping its gameplay? Clue us in on how you know. We all know, since most of us have owned a ps2, that sony systems have always been masterful at cgi cut scenes. Lets be honest. How many times have you played a ps2 game and the opening movie was stunning then the game starts and you think to your self...what tha "F" is this? Come on folks. We can all agree to that. If sony fans can't at least admit that then they are a lost cause and blinded by faith and hopes for their sony console of choice. If you have never played an xbox game, let me clue you in on how it works. I will give one example but every game does it. Prey..... The opening sequence starts and you are watching the cut scene in amazement on how good it looks. Then the camera stops and you are sitting there. You move your contorller and you are in the game. Thats a formula that all 360 games have been using since the original xbox. Halo does it as well. The cut scene engines actually use the gameplay engine, thus putting you in the game. But, back to Lair. Please give us a link or something to someone talking about that video you linked is gameplay. Forgive me if I have extreme doubts.....Sony has a track record of showing CGI and then you run out to buy the game and get totally let down. But here are some screen shots. This is what sony calls next gen gaming? Come on DJ. I won't even comment on these screens.

dj is full of $hit m8 , he keeps going on about the hard drive on 360 being only 20gb when if he really knows what he's talking then he would know that all you have to do is get a externel hard drive like my 250gb and it works ... he did NOT reply to my post the guy is full of $HIT HE dont KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING about ... if he wants prof then just ask me how to do it ;).....
as for the screen shots lol what madness ,,, what r the fony fans following ? it really dont make sence ...
why dont none of the stuff match the CGI THEY SHOWD AT E3 05? ..... OH I KNOW WHAT DJ WILL SAY THEY WILL MATCH IT IN 2-3 YEARS TIME LOL , SO WHAT WILL THE 360 BE DOING IN THE NEXT 2-3 YEARS ??????? ....
!!!!!! DJ IS THE BIGGEST BULL$HITER ON THIS SITE , END OFF !!!!!!!!!!
Ok Mod, I can see you deleted my post for being offensive, but why do you not delete the posts of 360 fanboys ? Are you damn anti-PS3 too ?
Ach..this site sucks.
