PSP 2 vs. PS3: Uncharted comparison screenshots

How good does Uncharted for NGP look when compared to the PS3 versions? Sony has said that the newly unveiled PSP 2 (Codename NGP) will be able to display PS3-like graphics on a smaller display. Now that the first real screenshot from Uncharted NGP has popped up: Can the NGP really compare with PS3 graphics? Check out this gallery with shots from all four installments of the Uncharted franchise - can Sony keep its promise? (PS Vita, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted: Golden Abyss)

Why do I get the impression that the PSP shot is just lifted from a close up of an off cam video.

Bloody German sites using the same one shot of the PSP uncharted against three different PS3 shots.

Seems like no real screenshots exist for the PSP version.

The PSP2 is so powerful, that it can only rival it's older brother...the PlayStation 3.

No real screenshot, but NGP is looking good. The only place I can really tell a difference is in resolution and aliasing.

the psp2 is gohan, ps3 goku
HappyGaming  +   1175d ago
+ When you are actually going to play the NGP it will be on a 5 inch screen.

This images are from cameras and they have been stretched quit a bit.

Makes you wonder what PS4 will be able to achieve! I mean if they can pull a PS3 on a portable device, God help us all! The next generation is going to be mind blowing!

hit the nail in the head thats no PSP2 screenshot...
TheLastGuardian  +   1175d ago
Not quite on the same level as the PS3 but it's pretty damn close. So impressive for a handheld to be pulling off better graphics than the 360.

You are insane. It looks good for a handheld but it still isnt as good as 360 graphics. Your just blind fanboy who makes absurd claims and makes yourself look dumb.

This is getting silly. Still, what I've seen looks good.
DigitalAnalog  +   1175d ago
Comparable to the PS3?
Yes. But don't forget this is because it doesn't produce the amount of pixels the PS3 does on TV. It doesn't equate themselves on a full PS3 level but having the same quality on a 1:2 ratio.

-End of Line

Even if these were good screenshots it's not exactly fair to compare a 3 year old PS3 game to a game that was just made on PSP2.
BigPappaPump  +   1176d ago
Impressive for a handheld.
peeps  +   1176d ago
Not a great comparison considering the resolutions are incorrect + you'll only be playing the psp version on a 5" screen.

The shots of the game on psp look impressive when you take this into consideration. It's like when I view standard quality tv channels on my 37" bravia, but when I view PAP with them displayed in a much smaller window the detail looks amazing

The resolution of the PS3 screenshot is scaled down for the comparison, so it actually is pretty fair. Anyones guess how the psp2 version stacks up, but it looks like it could range from slightly worse to far worse "Wii" quality. Fine for a handheld I guess.

Upscaling and downscaling don't cancel each other.... idiot
slugboss  +   1175d ago
Lol, what do you think happens when something is resized smaller. It doesn't maintain the integrity of a high resolution picture, you fail.
Awookie  +   1175d ago
It makes the pixels SMALLER meaning a crisper picture u obviously don't know anything about resolution
Ifone  +   1175d ago
Wii...3 !
slugboss  +   1174d ago
Uhhg, look I even have a tab in the graphics card menu of my computer called "Scaling Options".. It is where I adjust the overscan and underscan of my TV, my resolution is 1920x1080, what do you think happens when I make the picture smaller... Do my pixels get smaller?

Anyway, you trolled me good. I just wanted to say the PS3 screenshots in the article weren't HD either... you didn't have to recite literature from your TV manual...

TheTruth89  +   1176d ago
both looks amazing! but PS3 = 1080p or 720p
PSP = 960x544

Anyway, both pwn 360 :D

If you think about it, on a small screen, the PSP resolution should look like on the go HD right?
TheTruth89  +   1175d ago
clearelite  +   1175d ago
Pretty much and since it's OLED, it will probably look better than games on a lot of HDTVs. A crappy HDTV and make even the prettiest game look mediocre, whereas the OLED will make great looking games look unbelievable.

High definition does not always equal high quality.

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1175d ago
Well we can't call it HD as this don't display 720p images, but 544p... Still if we consider it's size, the image quality is more detailed than we can get in such small area from most full HD screens.

If you look at a full HD display that is a 2,073,600 pixels. If we think of an small TV of 22", those are really smal pixels. In a 16*9 section of this monitor with a 5" diagonal it carries roughly 471,272 pixels. NGP 5" screen have 522,240 pixels.

This doesn't mean technically better than HD displays, as any full image will be displayed in under than HD resolution on NGP, but on a screen that small, this mean way less pixelation will be visible, specially if compared to big 1080p screens (32" and up). Although current tech could be used to make bigger TVs 2 or 3 better in resolution, the OLED tech used in NGP could make a 40" display with resolution as high as 4352p. That's a really nice tiny screen.

Your comment begins nice, but then you took the idiot route.
Ifone  +   1175d ago
Only for xbox fans who like disagreeing with facts (look at the dumb disagree here, each time people bring 360 in the comparison :))

Lol@the LMS's joke "it will surpass ps3...games on my iphone look better than 90% of the next grns gzmes@ : ridiculous, not a single game is on par with a wii game, and don't forget the power you need to use your console with a 1080 tv....ps3 is 5 yezrs okd, but had 4, 5 years advznce on pc, and if you use it on an iphone screen, it would be photoreality..

is 960x544 sub HD?
Marked  +   1176d ago
Well its better then standard 480. so its a higher definition. Plus with a 5" screen higher resolution goes to waste, kinda like buying a 24" 1080p monitor to sit 8ft away from it.

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1175d ago
The term you guys are looking for is Enhanced Definition (ED), which covers anything from 480p to 719p.

Standard Definition (SD) only applies to 480i (PAL) and 576i (NTSC) displays. High Definition (HD) is from 720 to 1080p.

MisterAV  +   1176d ago
no standard PAL is 576 so is between PAL and NTFS
ct03  +   1175d ago
It's higher res than PAL. PAL is a 4:3 aspect ratio with a pixel aspect of 1.066, which gives a resolution of 720x576.
Sarcasm  +   1175d ago
It's on a 5" screen though...

The term "HD" is now a marketing moniker meant to trick consumers.
Ju  +   1175d ago
Or, say, half 1080 (actually would be 960x540, makes me wonder where these 4 more lines come from), which is still the same aspect ratio, 16:9.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1175d ago
Yup, and I don't see many 10" 1080p screens around.
hassi94  +   1175d ago
It's not half 1080, it's actually a quarter (as it's halved on both vertical and horizontal).
Ju  +   1175d ago
Yeah, pixel density is quarter, x/y res is half. Deal?
Gran Touring  +   1174d ago
don't worry about it being sub-hd in terms of pixel-counting. It will have the CLARITY of an HD device because of the density of the pixels. So it technically won't be HD, but it will look just as good, because of the high level of detail.
dorron  +   1176d ago
Looks amazing...but not on par with PS3. I'll be picking NGP without a doubt!
turgore  +   1175d ago
Not on par but the site is being unfair. thats a bad screenshot of the game.
jerethdagryphon  +   1176d ago
apearently the psp2 chips can nativly output 1080p but the physical limitations of the screen wont work for it

but from the specs its a very powerful peice of kit more data is needed
Ju  +   1175d ago
I looks great. PS3 still has the edge (compare same res and poly and lightning, etc). But this is on a not released machine. Imagine what's coming 2 years down the road...
DeathMetal1474  +   1175d ago
The Fact that A portable
is even comparable to the PS3 is impressive. however it also shows how weak the current consoles are.

DFresh  +   1176d ago
It looks close enough to looking the same as Uncharted on PS3.
Still nonetheless very impressive for a handheld device.
cloudfights  +   1176d ago
it makes you kinda wonder if this is the power of sony's new handheld.....just what do they have in store for us with the ps4
Ju  +   1175d ago
Just imagine how many of these babies you can link on a size of a PS3 style motherboard. 4 maybe? That would be 16+16 core (both theoretical available today, might be 4 Quad Cortex 9, but the SGX544 exists in a 16 core version)
N311V  +   1175d ago
Very impressive
e3kehoe  +   1175d ago
Is there a video out? Mini hdmi maybe?
shadow2797  +   1175d ago
Rahim92  +   1175d ago
Look at Drake's face and compare it with his face in Uncharted 2 and 3, big difference. Still very impressive for a handheld. However I don't think that it will be on par with the PS3, considering that PS3 still has to show more of its true colors to us, which will be way ahead of the NGP/PSP 2.
LMS  +   1175d ago
it will surpass the ps3, it's not even out yet, look at ps3 launch titles to compare it and this thing shits on them, do not compare it with games from 2009, 3.5 years into the dev cycle, the ps3 and 360 are just that old, my iphone has games that look better than 90% of console games, i dont know why everyone is suprised, read up on moore's law, this is what tech does, it continually evolves and improves, the ps3 is ANCIENT by tech standards.

I really don't think these are direct screen shots from the PSP2. I think they are shots of shots. That said, still looks really good. I don't think it's as powerful as the PS3 (I hope I'm proven wrong on this), but for a first demo product... it looks amazing. I don't own a single console or handheld from this generation... but, I will most likely be buying a PSP2. I love my desktop computer - It's my hands-down gaming platform of choice - but, I can't take that with me on the go.

I don't care who you are or what platform you identify with... this is looking like it is going to be a great gaming device.

Reminds me a lot of the God of War PSP/PS2 comparisons: slightly below its console counterpart, but impressively close for a handheld.
