Side by side screenshot comparison of the same Uncharted: Drake's Fortune video posted by GameVideos and GameTrailers with different graphics settings.
they look really different
They tweak / calibrate screenshots for xbox360 games versus PS3 games in the same way, to purposely make one appear better than the others. Microsoft Smoke & Mirrors.
However, some people can look beyond the smoke & mirrors and see the truth. Others continue to drool and gaze in awe and amazement at the smoke & mirrors and fog. C'mon, you know which group you belong to, xbox360. They're even fooled into thinking that they're console is the least expensive. Right.
I remember during Gamespot's xbox360 / PS3 comparison shots, they'd force the PS3 on component cables instead of HDMI cables to slow down the PS3 to match the xbox360's then maximum connection option. That's like saying, "let's see whether the guy in the wheelchair can go faster than the guy without the wheechair. Oh, but wait, let's handicap the non-disabled guy and put him in a wheelchair to make it fair." What's the purpose of the race then? I thought we wanted to see if the disabled guy can go faster than the non-disabled guy.
That's like racing an xbox360 Toyota supra with a maximum speed of 60mph with the Black 400-800mph PS3 lamborghinni. But there's a catch. We'll only allow the PS3 to run at 60mph in this race. What's the purpose of the race then if you're going to limit the PS3 to 60mph?
Do they have a different build of the game ?
In Gametrailers there's no self-shasow while GameVideos, yes.
There's definitely some sort of self-shadowing going on there. It's just that it's a lot more complex and not the hard shadows we're used to seeing in games. The sun also looks like it's in a different position, and they are standing in the shade of the structure.
use to record it. That's my guess but could also be the t.v ...
in the images of the right side they look darker
the lighting is different... there is direct sunlight in one, not in the other.
these are not from the same built, graphics settings on a console are very basic, pretty much just resolution, that cant possibly make for such a huge difference.
The girl is smoking hot ! :o
Actually she's a toon. 100% in fact. Every texture in Uncharted is hand painted, no photos of any kind. It really gives a less realistic and more romantic feel to the whole thing.
Now, I dare not say she's hot, since she's really just a piece of code. The fact that we can find computerized characters sexy is sometimes freaking me out really. So... no comment. :D
A paparazzi pic of Jessica Alba frolicing in the surf is just a collection of pixels. A naked portrait is just paint. Doesn't mean they cant be sexy.
For your insight. Your explanation makes me feel a little less awkward when I play HS!
i agree with bathyj. the picture of your girlfriend is just a bunch of pixels formed to create a picture to the viewer's eyes. same in games. you find your girlfriend hot i find laura croft hot. simple as that
the most obvious difference is in the first picture. the right side has the girl with a gun holstered to her and the left one just a strap. or should i say she's "strapped" on the right side instead.
I had to catch myself when playing heavenly sword. Nariko looked too "real". First glimpse I saw in a mag. I was like "okay whatever, just another girl playing the lead". Then when I actually bought the game and played it on my HDTV I said "She's fvcking hot".
Then as you said, I had to realize she's a piece of code. Nothing more.
Its a shame that girls like Nariko aint real :P It would be cool :P When you play the game you it makes a relation between you and nariko, but in the end, you relize that she is just a big back of beutiful code :)
u could play different kind of graphic modes when u finished the game. that are some of the unlocks.
What a meaningless unlock stuff...
Have only one question......
Which of these cut-scenes will be in the Final game ?
Why bother comparing if you aren't using the same variables for the product?
Maybe Uncharted is suporting a day / night cycle...
It would be great !
Hmm...could be BUT...to me it seems like 1UP has much much more worse video quality than one on Gametrailers. But that is not strange, their hate for PS3 games in repulsive, just check last 1up yours podcast to "feel" the love. I am getting sick of them and will probably stop listening them from now on.
Because they did it with Jak and Daxter.
these are different builds the backgrponds are totally different in the last three sets of shots
Thats my guess to. 1UP wants to make look bad or "nothing special" PS3 games. Its just so strange that video on GT looks " OMG that is so amazing" vs 1UPs "Meh that is mediocre" and it really looks mediocre on 1UP. To much of a coincidence from site which on its podcast not so long ago said that Uncharted is not big title and in same podcast bashed Ratchet. Like "I don't like it, not my type of game", Shane being only one that like it, but even he has become ass licker
It's obviously a different build. The building in the background in the third screen is a completely different model. Not just a sharper texture, there's a whole ledge that isn't there in the other shot.
I like how the ledged look in the GV shots, but I like GT's backgrounds. Also the sun lighting in GV really makes the colors stand out more.... anyone notice the little gun/waist strap glitch in the GV vid...like I said they should mix up certain things, just makes me wonder how awesome the final version will be
*prays for day night sequences*
One is in 480 the other is in 1080. Just like PC: higher resolution = more details.
is this actually supposed to be another competition? Or are we so used to comparisons turning into arguments about which is better that we immediately jump on that aspect?
I just figured it was to highlight the huge difference that the game engine itself is capable of producing. Perhaps it's using a dynamic engine that allows for weather/effects changes on the fly, so as you play the game it changes the look of the environment. Or maybe it will be tied into the story/gameplay in the final builds.
Either way, I can't wait to find out when it releases.
It probably is a day/light cycle difference. The shadows and lighting are different in both vids.
this game looks awesome, the female character looks ages better than she did in the earlier builds too
It has to be more of a day/night difference. Whole structures are missing in the one vid.
I shall be getting a PS3 when the lower price model reaches the US (though i am hoping more for the 60 gig bundle) ... and I will get this game
If you download the high res versions of the video, both the GameVideos and GameTrailers video look exactly the same. I don't know what's wrong with the low res version.
it is obviously different builds of the game, one is an earlier one that is rough .. the other better lighting , more detail, and a higher detailed background (or a background in general) .
Which one will we see in the Final Game.... ????
I am sorry but that is a bit of a dumb question ... which do you think ? the better looking version or the one that is worse? lol They just made it look better only to release the one that is not as finished. Not trying to come off mean .. but ya ... why even ask
