This show had its own little surprises, like this Haze demo, showing the jungle level from the beginning, and continuing where the other presentations stopped.
Looks very nice indeed, aside from some vegetation pop-in.....Is this 640p out of interest? j/k.
Looks ok, but it's not Gears of War quality. It almost looks as good as Halo 3.
It looks better than Halo3 kid, graphics wise.
Jeeze Brad, I bet that hurt to say.
Why are you so insecure? The game looks better than both Halo 3 & Gears. Quite impressive really. It's not even a direct feed... it's an off screen recording and it still looks very sharp & crisp, that speaks to just how good the visuals in this game will be.
It doesn't look as good as Halo 3, sorry sony kids.
HALO killer confirmed
It has 4 player co-op and 24 players online
halo 3 is now dead
Not that great graphics wise. Killzone 2, Mass Effect, Call of Duty 4 and MGS4 all look better.
Ignore bluebrad 1974 he's just a child (probably B Gates lost child), now on to the serious issue game looks like crysis (not on the same graphic level before you xbots start ranting, but close) and ill be looking forward to this, UT3 and uncharted this coming fall
Click ignore on blubrad
Looks like 720p running @ 20fps.
GEARS OF WAR IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS:
The xbots are still staring, eyes glazed over and empty, at the smoke and mirrors Microsoft is blowing at them.
Turn on the the bright lights, and you'll see that the girl isn't as pretty as she looks when the lights were turned off --> Gears of War dark and gritty **cough. (hiccup** too while I'm at it). There's a reason why Gears was intentionally made dark and short? Smoke and mirrors anyone? There's a reason an ugly girl wants to have sex with the lights turned off or dimmed down? So you can't see how ugly she really is. Trickery for the easily fooled.
Turn on the the lights or shine a bright light on Gears of War, and out of the darkness, after your eyes have adjusted, you'll see that you've been sleeping with --> HALO 3 all along. Turn on the lights, and you get Halo3. Same goes for the dark Bioshock. Flash a light bulb on Bioshock, and you'll see Halo 3 again. The ugly girl looks good only in dimmed lighting. Caution.
Notice the amount of leaves and grass in this game called HAZE. This should be enough to convince you of the power of the PS3. There are no deceptions here with magical artistic deceptions to compensate for a low quality hardware to fool the gullible.
These are a gazillion leaves in open daylight where you can see them in all their glory. No light dimming. No painted leaves. They're all made one by one. Count them all. If HAZE had been multiplatform with the xbox360 in mind, well, lookie here. Suddenly most of the game is in night time. Suddenly, there are more boulders and open plains than an ocean of individually bladed grass and leaves and branches. Suddenly, the campain is only 5 levels with only four enemeis on screen at a time. Remember in the 8-bit days when you fight a huge boss? They' make all the backgrounds black. Smoke and mirrors. But everyone would say, "wow, the NES has awesome graphics. That boss filled half the screen."
But if this is not enough to prove once and for all that the xbox360 sucks, take a look at Grand Turismo 5. That game will forever seal the deal and draw a line between the two consoles. To the left of the line, everything that's xbox360 and multiplatform developed with the xbox360 in mind. Everything to the right of that line, the PS3.
Smoke and mirrors? EGM would rate jessica simpson as a perfect 10 female in looks, albeit. I'd stick to Jessica Alba (or Paris Hilton), in terms of looks, that is. You'd wave the EGM magazine all over my face while you seek out Jessica Simpson's looks. In contrast, I'm waking up with Jessica Alba in bed with me (plus she cooks for me), and I'd tell you that I'm pretty happy with Jessica Alba, someone I find way more attractive and productive. You can hold on to your magazine for proof though...But for me, proof is in the pudding.
Throw in Gamepro while you're at it.
MICROSOFT IS A BAD CITIZEN:
Sadly, I've always noticed that the xbox360 is dumming down this generations graphics due to its limited hardware capabilities. Listen, most developers will want to focus on the xbox360 because they can sell more games because of the larger gullible fanbase prone to be mesmerized by smoke and mirrors and hype (they probably own a Wii by now). Almost all developers will make the ports and multiplatforms for hte PS3 very similar to the quality of the xbox360. And therefore, all gamers this generation has suffered and might continue to suffer from the xbox360 graphical limitations. Mediocre graphics. Microsoft is a liability this generation.
Think of a slow car that got to the freeway early in the morning ahead of everyone and is now causing a massive graphical traffic jam because it got there first and is only mediocre in speed. Because it still wants to be first, all gamers will suffer. Get that 60mph hunk of junk xbox360 off the freeway. What a disservice to gaming society by insisting on being upfront while it's overheating and slow and clunking along at 60mph when everyone has work to do and wants to go faster, xbox360. Greedy, selfish. Think of society for once and not yourself.
The most recent MGS4 trailers after Beauty & the Beast all look suspicisouly low quality. This is a suggestion that Kojima might be contemplating a possible crossover to the xbox360 by "future proofing it" for the xbox360's limiations. Perhaps some kind of deal with Microsoft is pending and Kojima is just prepping the game to appear on the xbox360 just in case any deals do go through. And so, the graphical crime on this generation has occured again. Capping off this generation's potential to the limitations of that slow car up front,getting in everyone's way and causing a huge slow down traffic jam and smiling smugly as everyone is late to work or school and car horns are blaring.
Look at Final Fantasy XIII, and you know for sure that cannot go multiplatform based on the graphics.
Look at the PS3, the model citizen. Blazing breakneck speed graphics to clear up the freeway from traffic jams. Folding to help the entire world through research of medicine and space and societal issues, according to Stanford University and government & not-for profit groups.
All xboxts and microsoft care about, in contrast, is hurting people in hope to benefit themselves somehow. They seem to care about their own consoles than the well-being of humans by abusing anyone who talks down on their xbox360. And Microsoft is even worse. It's knowingly continuing to realease faulty hardware on its own xbots. Why? Doesn't it even care about it's own supporters? Do they care about you xbots by doing this?
And if you're buying a PS3, you won't miss out on anything. Here's something for you to think about:::::
READ THIS EVERYONE:::::::::::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
PS3 ports of xbox360 games + your PC computer versions of Halo, Gears, Bioshock, and so on ==> free xbox360 without the internet fees, without the need to buy a hi-definiition player, without the need for wii motion sensors, without the clunky two piece design, without junk games you'd never buy, without worry about hardware issues, without the loud noise. But it also comes with PS3, PS2, PS1, and PSN games. Let alone SACD playback.
To think that you can watch bluray movies in all its glory, too, in addition to playing the game shown above. Spiderman 3 and Harry Potter anyone?
Oh, and another thing. XBOTS will have spend the most money this generation. They're the most gullible. Smoke and mirrors can get them to rebuy the same machine over and over again even when it breaks. Smoke and mirrors can get them to think that Gears of War is actually a grpahical breakthrough. Smoke and mirrors can get them to think that they're saving money with the xbox360.
Here, try this.
Add your xbox360 console cost
Add your HD-DVD and / or Bluray player (most likely a PS3, especially if you like games, too)
Add movie costs
Add $100-$400 internet fees for the life of the console
Add game accessories (wi-fi, gamepads, and so on)
Add games on either consoles
Add Wii to experience motion sensing
Deduct and add whatever applies to you
Now tell me how much money you've saved...
PS3 owners get a free bluray player, a free PS2, a free PS1, a free xbox360 when coupled with the PC computer versions of Halo, Gears, and Bioschock along with ports of xbox360 games with mediocre xbox360 graphics because developers focus on the console with a larger fan base to make more money that way, a free SACD player, a free video chat to save long distance phone bills, a free linux computer, and anything else?
And if I don't like Gears of War, Bioshock, or Halo and all those other psycho death metal crack cocaine games that I'm sure prison inamates and mass murderers would prefer (compared to games Hillary Clinton would prefer), why should I buy an xbox360? For it's price and other issues, why would I want it? What else does it do?
and gameplay wise
nice lighting maybe a little generic but still look like a console version of crysis.
looks very good and more importantly it doesnt need to send its reviewers an 800$ duffel bags to get good review scores
Once again you prove your ignorance. Report as spam please.
This is how a first Person shooter should look and play
lets hope it gets better cuz rite now graphics are not good enough 4 me and i think tht halo 3 stil has the beter graphics i mean the killzone looks hot no lie and the gameplay looks sick so yeah tht s a game that yall might be lookin 4ward 2 but this still has 1 more month 4 approvements
I hope we get a playable demo of this. I cant decide whether i should buy.
all I can say for this game is: KOOL
I like the draw distance and the fact that for once a jungle level that isn't just overcrowded with trees.
I will buy this game, but probably not on day of release.
This game looks great and I'm sure it will be load of fun considering it's from the makers of Timesplitters.
I like it except the zoom & the gloving enemy part but it's not gonna be like that online,well i hope not...
I'm still gonna buy it!
It will be like that online. Similar to the Chimara seeing through walls in Resistance if you have that. It's just one of the advantages the one side gets. But dont worry, the other side has counters and their advantages as well.
from what i can see. Haha lets not even compare it to Halo 3. We know how that looks already. Plus bashing the xbox is pointless now anyways. Im happy that this is a PS3 exclusive though, so it can be made for/push the ps3.
Ok at first i wasnt even going to say anything about the xbox...but what are you talking about? These graphics DESTROY Halo's lol. The lighting, the water, the detailed explosions, and the fact that the boulders ACTUALLY look like boulders.
edit:(ok maybe not BETTER than gears of war, but DEF craps all over Halo. If all of Halo's hype was because it was an amazing game, i think it would be in serious trouble right now.)
I'll be passing on this one.
What a perfect way to describe it. At least it'll have multiplayer but I think COD4 will bury it.
And it DOES look better than Halo 3 but in no way will it be a "Halo killer". There's more to a great game than just pretty graphics.
I would say this and H3 are a push in graphics.
I dont give 2 squirts what resolution its running in, H3 looks *awesome* on my 62 in HDTV - awesome.
But, H3's gameplay has kept me up until the wee wee hours of the morning like no other game Ive played in *years*. It really is going to be a tough act to beat, imo.
Certainly isn't bad looking but there's certain things that look bad. The wreckage of Covenant ships looks terrible, like they gave that coding to an intern or something. It really doesn't matter as the game is fun as hell to play.
This game will rule the earth. So cool. Million times better than Halo or Gears.
Is their specialty having videos without the sound?
fine for me, check your browser I am using firefox.
the GT video didnt have sound, this one did.. they are soo weird..
In Resistance the Chimara can see though walls sometimes. I could criticize Resistance and say that the humans wear purple overalls and run around, but thats just not true.
The game is attempting to simulate a hightend state of awareness. Now for the time being their only way to simulate this is through visual or audio. Perhaps in the future they'll tap into your brain stem and feed an intuition into your brain, but until then were stuck with glowing characters.
You speak as though their always that way, but their not.
Do you know anything about the various abilities either side has?
at the same time as Unreal and COD4 right? Dam dude
i guess i will have a FPS to play for atleast 6 months. I think i will start with COD4 then after i get my fill of that i wil need to choose Unreal or Haze. Atleast i know i can now feel like i own a 360. No shortage of FPS's to play
Except for the fact that the PS3 already has more shooters vs other games than the 360...
So I will get this... maybe. Like KZ and MGS series more than plain FPS shooters. Looks like Halo on PS3... so if the kids get the Halo hype I will pick this up and tell them it is Halo on PS3... Looks like it.
LOL, I can see TK's kids opening their X-mas package to find a Halo: Combat Evolved case, and then they open that and find the HAZE disk inside, but it's crossed out and has Halo written to the side of it with a sharpie. They'll never know the difference.... LOL
and i think thats what you get alot in PS3 games. HS, Ratchet and clack future, Uncharted hell even warhawk and lair have incredible draw distance and it dosent look fake or pasted on like some of the other titles i've seen. mgs4 and killzone look amazing with how detailed, with how far you could see with game.
The end of next year? Final Fantasy 13 is going to blow everybody away. Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 will probably be to die for.....
All the xbox is going to offer will be Gears of War 2...and it will still be too short because of the limits of the DVD-9
The PS3 actually has native 1080p games...something not even possible on the xbox 360 yet...
The jungle looks lush. Very nice. Maybe not quite as good as Crysis but miles better than Farcry which is not a shabby game by any standard.
Hey, off topic but that reminds me, it sucks they took the zoom off the pistol in Halo 3. One of the best weapons is now useless.
bleh. game looks boring, uninspired graphics and just dull. UT3 and killzone for me
Haze and cod4 will be the most realistic....nobody will be playing halo 3 online after UT3 and COD4 are realeased...plus Haze will be the sleeper hit on the PS3. And all 3 are on the PS3, with only cod4 on the xbox 360....all they got to do is add some maps to warhawk by december....and all is awesome! Oh do not forget Socom: Confrontation....
You are one of the biggest idiots i have ever known.
I like what I've seen. The waterfall is amazing and the water actually makes waves when the grenade explodes. What I missed, though: Where are the fps drops ? Or the level loading ?
Let us argue over whether UT3 will own Haze or Warhawk has better online. Or if Uncharted will be funner than Killzone 2. It is in good fun to do this because all these games look amazing and are purchases. We need to have debates between us because it is obvious we purchased PS3's for our line up of games. We all know why we love Heavenly Sword and Ratchet. Why even consider what xbots say? Let us have our friendly debates between the best PS3 has to offer! This game looks good, where are the frame drops? non existent to me!
This game is looking sick!
This game looking better and better everytime the whole nectar things is a really interesting concept. Looking forward it this November.
This games look good yes better than Halo IMHO. I just hope they get the gameplay down right and ofcourse the multiplayer. This has real potential.
you can trust this to have excellent gameplay as the boys (and girls lol) from free radical are behind it.
Halo looks horrible.. The lighting looks good but the character models, facial and enviorment lack anything good.. I played it at my brothers house on his big a$$ theather projection hdtv and it looked like halo 2 HD.. Ok a little better than halo 2 but the graphic were way weak.. I attached pics to prove im not lyning.. Halo 3 is a good game.. A great game, FAR FROM IT.. Bungie should have waited another year to make this a great game..
Back on topic this looks like crysis almost.. Not as good but this kills halo 3 in graphics wise.. And dont compare this to gears of war.. That game was gritty and dark. Different atmosphere than haze or halo.. Halo and haze are a good comparison. I like when ur on the nector and have the hand gun and it follows ur bullet. looks sick.. Also did u see the butterflys? so pretty.. lol..
I was shocked to see jagged edges and low quality textures all over the place. Anybody that says otherwise is fooling themselves.
In regards to Haze, looking heaps better than previous videos. Should be great when finally tweaked for the PS3 - they don't have to compromise anything.
wow the jungle level is pretty inspiring, not as good as crysis....but damn close, and yeah the butterfly's that came up were a very nice details. made the area look almost alive. and the smoke tracers look much better
the waterfall was nice too, but as far as the zoom and glowing enemies go I think those are nice touch's making nectar use feel more authentic and that it really affects the characters body.
hope these glitches are ironed out and the release the demo over the PSN :D
when Haze comes out I want everybody who's getting it on for some co-op!
Yeah, I've considered taking some of my PSN buddies and coming up with some pact that we'd play 2 hrs every night and that we wouldn't play ahead by ourselves. That way we'd co-op our way though without knowing what was coming. Gota play on a harder difficulty as well. :)
Pretty soon,we will be playing the most awesome games on the engineering marvel;the mighty PS3!!!
This is really looking good. The forest is so lush... The lighting is amazing... some of the palms looks like you can see sub surface lighting... the forest is full of life...
Smoke effects are sexy as well...
mad because its another game 360 wont get thatll pwn
Gears is a 3rd person shooter. Those kinds of shooters will have better graphics than FPS. But graphic wise it seems that FPS are looking better and better, look at KZ2, insane graphical atmospheric beauty. Halo to Haze can be compared but not Haze to Gears or Halo to Gears. If you look at Drakes Fortune, it looks similar to Gears and their both 3rdPS. It's going to be extremely hard to choose Haze, UnrealIII, and COD4. They're all power houses when it comes to pure graphical eye candy goodness. I don't know which to choose first.
I've already played the game at Leipzig, the demo build though they had was really buggy but I was still fun to play despite the bugs, making someone OD on nectar is cool as hell and funny. The graphics are pretty good too and I'm sure they've improved them as I only played an early build.
I've seen it in the flesh on a HD screen and I'll tell you all the graphics are better than Halo 3's.
i never made a big deal about haze but its looking better and better
I CANT WAIT!!!!!.
What a shoddy game.
remember the interview?
this game is going to be better than the overhyped generic fps Halo 3.
