TMC: A Bethesda member has confirmed on the Neogaf forums that the footage from the recently released Elder Scrolls V trailer were captured on the Xbox 360.
OK, this news really just solidifies this game as powerhouse contender for GOTY. I mean, we know the visuals are not going to be any worse for any other platform that what we saw in that video...and those visuals were stunning!
yeah i thought it looked pretty good but this means it'll look even better on PC! pretty excited about Skyrim now =)
The draw distance is impressive for consoles.
This is a PC buy for me. Games this large and this immersive need the best fidelity possible.
Well this news is a no brainer. It couldn't have been captured from ps3 because the frame rate was steady, didn't notice any torn frames, shadows looked awesome, lots of ambient occlusion, good alpha resolution...had to be captured either from pc or 360.
Go back under your bridge. Oblivion looks great on the PS3.
The visuals won't be worse on another platform? Aren't you aware that multiplatform games still look better on the 360 the vast majority of the time? And this is Bethesda we're talking about here. They're notorious for crappy PS3 ports.
Well I think he meant if it's on PC the consoles will look vastly inferior. So good that it's console. They look quite similar, and this is a new engine that was built with Xbox, PS3 and PC platforms all in mind. The PS3 version will probably look about the same as the Xbox version.
@YodaCracker, I know Bethesda has had some issues in the past. That said, I am pretty confident they have ironed out most of their problems for PS3 and in the interest of not turning this into a flamewar I was keeping things civil. Obviously that is impossible on N4G (see @SasanovaS1987 response).
Actually Oblivion run better on the PS3!But was released a time after the 360 version!And Fallout 3 PS3 after the patch run and look equal to the 360 if not better!I can say the same about new vegas because the lack of AA on the PS3 version made the xbox 360 version look better and it run better too!
Bethesdas games are fairly identical on consoles. Unless you game with a microscope your not going to notice any differences.
Gamers play games, Consoliphiles play consoles. Me, i'm looking forward to this game.
Lol so its AA on 360 and maybe better textures on ps 3.
Oblivion was, in fact, better on PS3.Like the multiplats that do end up better on PS3, nobody talks about them.That would be detrimental to the fanboy mindset. In any case, oblivion loaded faster, had higher resolution textures, improved shading and an increased draw distance.Not to mention better frame rate.That is a fact. http://www.joystiq.com/2007... Will be buying this day one on PS3. :)
Notorious? Oblivion was better on the PS3. Granted it was released a year later but at least they took that time to improve it.
Oblivion 360 release date: 3/20/2006 Oblivion PS3 release date: 3/20/2007 What is there to talk about? I sure hope a game released a year later is going to look better. There's no reason to compare them unless they are released on the same date.
if bethesda continue the way they have been dealing with the ps3 the skyrim wil look very average on it. fallout 3 looked horrific and oblivion was the same(even though you could look past it because it was an awesome game). they've had 2 cracks at it so no excuses please.
NICE!! I thought that the visuals were lacking (textures) for it to be PC footage, this is good news the PC version will look amazing.
I think that looked rather impressive for a console game. Good for them. Now lets just hope its not too buggy.
I thought it looked very standard for what we have come to expect from this generation of console... That doesn't mean the art isn't good though.
Yea...very standard for action games,not RPGs.
No frigging way. That's brilliant!
I will not be suprised if this will run on 2 discs on the Xbox 360
I think they'll probably just scale back the size of the world so that it fits on a single DVD. Each DVD on the 360 carries an additional licensing fee, and most companies like Bethesda would rather just cut content than pay the additional licensing.
HORSE DUCKY! They repackage the extra content as DLC, and pump the price of the game up to $120 but paid in installments.
This is a false information, that turns up every time again. Microsoft does not charge additional fees for multiple Discs. This was discussed several times with major Nelson who cleared this up. So please do not push this BS anymore. Anyway, i think the Modding Community on the PC will turn this great looking Game to a Monster Master Piece.
That is not really a problem, as long as it has the same feature as Castlevania LOS. Which was install both discs to hard drive and you never had to swap discs.
it will not surprise me if there is a five to ten gig install for this game on the playstation 3. waiting for the stupid installs takes a lot more time than changing one stupid disc after you reach the half point of the game, and you end up with less hard drive space.
maybe he means the game maybe massive and open world and some locations are located on the second disc.... ala Mass Effect 2
Its staggering what developers can do when they get to intimately know the hardware they are working on
Not spam # http://gamestage.com.br/tem... Really hope Jump and levitate are back. So I can jump from hill to hill. A retty damn fun way of travelling btw. Why do people care so much abou tthe graphics in a game like Skyrim though? It's not a linear shooter like Uncharted or anything. Big world or good graphics. For a console it's one or the other not both. The theme sounds SO like Morrowinds theme aswell, except till the people start shouting Dragon shi* out.
I know... I miss levitate. Of course, you can mod it in... but, it's not the same as it being included with the retail product.
I want to see what the PS3 will look like.
Likely about the same, maybe a touch less as teh 360 is obviously the lead platform.
im so stoked for this game - dont care about how many discs as long as it lets me just keep disc one in and have everything installed to my hard drive.
In a podcast interview, the head developer said the 360 was the lead platform for making the game, not ps3 or even pc for that matter. ;]
I assume you mean lead console between the PS3 and 360 but the game is being developed and tested on the PC according to the gameinformer podcast.
Games are developed on PCs, they are always the lead platforms. I guess the 360 would be the console lead platform as games are supposedly straightforward to port from PCs to the 360.
Lead platforms are what they're developed FOR, not on. The Xbox is the lead platform, then they're porting it to PC and PS3 and touching it up on PS3 and adding graphics and UI features to PC.
@Hassi Please let us know about your deep knowledge of videogame development.
ah Neogaf, love it :)
Now let's wait for them bugs, freezes and crashes. You KNOW they'll be there, they're Bethesda's Seal of Quality.
If they keep does horrible game brake loadings that happen on Oblivion exterior environment out i will be a happy gamer!
lol, there always has to be one jackass who rains on everyone's parade... Can't you just enjoy the trailer like the rest of us?
Im so happy they arent using the crap engine that they used for their other games. This games engine looks amazing, now lets hope that its not insanely buggy like their Gamebryo engine
Actually this is a VERY heavily modded Gamebryo engine. Again HEAVILY modified though.
Why didnt they just use the same engine as Rage? Have they ever said why? @ below I guess it could also be because the rage engine is untested really. A case of teh devil you know is better than the devil you dont prehaps?
I really don't know. I guess they felt this was better to work with. Again though its almost a new engine from how much its been modified.
Not that suprising imo. It looked great, the part with the cave and the guy doing a spell showed just MAGNFICENT lighting and generally that did look better than caves in other games. BUT, Just Cause 2 and Red Dead Redemption - both open world, look just as good as this, if not a bit better. Very excited about it though, the game looks like it's going to take another 200-400 hours of my time.
Red Dead has fine vistas, but I think Just Cause has better graphics overall. Think Skyrim will blow them away though
In other words this game will look great on consoles. This also means it'll look mind blowing on a high end PC... Can't wait to see more
I was thinking and state previous that it was the PC version mainly because of the drawing distances!!I guess i have to eat my words,and im glad for it!Nice work Bethesda!
So much hate from the pro Sony folks they can't stand it a game looking superior than their precious exclusives. This should let people know that Sony in-house developers aren't the best. Wouldn't surprise me if the 360 was the lead platform.
I'm typically pro-360. But come on man.. do you really need to say that? How on earth do you know it won't look better on PS3? Let's face it, both consoles have four year old tech in em... compared to PC, they both lose "graphics-wise" Every single time. I have a feeling that most people on N4G, however are intelligent enough to realize that graphics are but one factor when it comes to what a truly great game is. Having said that I love being able to play on my 55 LED TV in the living room. Thats the only reason I would grab a console copy.
I don't know how you have established by watching a 3 minutes of a game, is better than Sony's "precious exclusives". One such exclusive is Uncharted 2 which happens to be one of the greatest of all time. Don't take away credit where its due. They also have some of the best in house devs. These facts don't don't take anything away from Bethesda as being among the best devs or Skyrim being a mindblowing game. Skyrim>Uncharted 3 awesome we'll see in November, 360 lead console with PS3 version looking just as good also great, guess what everyone's happy. Live and PSN:inmyfin4lh0ur
GREAT for 360 owners It looks great!! can't wait the PC version should be awsome!!
No wonder I thought the graphics needed work. At first I thought it was PC but since the xbox explains why I thought that. I dont have to worry.
I hope this dosen't mean the PS3 is going to be a crap port. I like to think they at least try and get both consoles to run the game smoothly
Im thinking 360 version will be on 2 discs , and if ps3 gets the ported version then i guess bethesda really do suck after all at making an unglitchy less buggy game. Ps3 version can be just 1 blu ray with the Dlcs the 360 could get exclusively itll be all on 1 blu ray for ps3 but Overall the PC version will be the best version mods galore etc.
It's not really a step up from Oblivion at all. When they said it was on a new engine I got excited , but the graphics are pretty awful. Low resolution textures, poor facial animation. Poor enemy animation. Poor third person characters like all Bethesda games. It looks like a 2006 game, I'm not seeing the new engine at all.
It's Because people like to throw out buzz words like "Maxed out" and "more powerful" when in all honesty, the PS3 isn't THAT much more powerful and it's rarely taken advantage of. When these companies take their time and do things right, meaning a 3 to 4 year cycles in games, you see how these games look fantastic, ie Rage, Crysis 2 ect....
Raven Nomad: you should really be more specific when you try to argue things using broad and unresearched statements. The PS3 is technically superior to the 360 in many ways, but not necessarily all and numbers alone aren't necessarily a better comparison, unless you actually know what's going on behind the numbers. It also works similarly with pc graphics cards. That is fact. Also, because devs are too lazy to learn how to properly utilize the PS3 devkit and they port from the 360, "SOME" ps3 ports end up looking shitty compared to the 360 version. Tell me what 360 game outshines Uncharted 2 from a graphical perspective.
Well I for one wasn't blown away by Uncharted 2's graphics, I thought Mass Effect 2 as a whole looked better. I mean when it comes to graphics, your really just arguing opinion for the most part, because how can you prove what game has better graphics when they are completely different? One game might offer lush floral environments and the other a space setting, hard to judge something like that.
What they've show of Gears 3 does, but until it comes out there's no telling if that's how it will really look. I agree with Raven, there defiantly isn’t as big a gap in the graphics as people like you make it out to be.
Looks absolutely amazing. Can't wait for this!!!wow
Oblivion looking better on the ps3 is a fact; you're not allowed to disagree. Bethesda even stated that it was technically superior. Now, if you want to bitch about the analog sticks on the ps3 controller...that is fine. Fucking 360 fanboys. I believe I might get Skyrim on PS3 since people with modded PS3s are already modding Oblivion.
Yeah that's true. Oblivion came out a whole year after the 360/PC on PS3 it better be better from a console perspective. PC still owns. :P Everybody needs to experience Elder Scroll's as a series.
