A batch of new MotorStorm Apocalypse footage – in 1080p format – undoubtedly shows off the PS3′s power.
im sorry but lolz
Try playing ps3 instead of xbox 360 or Wii. Troll harder next time
Go back to playing your DVD's
fanboy issues aside played the demo and just wanted to say the AI in this game does not f**k around if you try and overtake it will destory you.
Where is the demo?
It's obviously not the most "powerful" game ever on PS3, but I do think it should be appreciated for what it is.
The destruction and chaos going on while playing is immense and staying at 60 fps is pretty impressive.
must buy for me
Day One for me, fan of MotorStorm series here, this one will be the Best!
I think PR looks better, but apocalypse has way more stuff going on than PR.
N4G it's not spam damit! http://i.imgur.com/PbMA5.gi...
I agree! Just look at. Its like watching Saving Private Ryan but then in racing form!
Actually the game runs at 30FPS. But it's pretty rock solid and VERY responsive. This is one hell of a technical achievement. Evolution studios has outdone themselves once again.
Yea sorry, it is 30 fps. Must of been some other game I had been testing this week. Mix up.
for those lookin for the demo try the EU store
Hmmm should we call the nurse and let him have his meds... or let him play Crysis 2 and pretend that it looks better than Killzone 3, even with all the jaggies, lower rez, and fewer onscreen enemies with last gen AI...? Nah... let him have his fun... just get him a bib. OT - I've never been into the Motorstorm series. They look very nice and this one is no exception, but I like the more traditional racing games (Dirt, GT5) better.
me your being sarcastic, crysis 2 visuals for some are better but some people will prefer killzone 3 its called opinion and nobody is wrong. read my review of killzone 3 if you think im a troll but you will see otherwise.
WOW, N4G is getting overrun with delusional 360 fans... What happened? Anyway, MotorStorm is looking to be as awesome as ever. Definitely showing off the PS3's graphical capabilities.
And hennessey86 is leading the cause lol. *from his comment history: "just played the ps3 demo and omg is it bad. Its the jaggiest game ive ever seen." Xbox defense force unite! /s Motorstorm owns!
That one bubble looks real good on you ;)
I seriously LoL over these "shows PS3 power" articles. N4PS3 is funny :/
360 fanboys butthurt is even funnier.
i love comments like yours that suggest N4G is full of ps3 fanboys.. When about 80% of ps3 articles are bashing it.. I also see far more people making such comments than i actually see ps3 fanboys, kind of ironic
I'm sorry, but are you blind? Anyway, I've seen much nicer looking PS3 titles out there. Not sure how Apocalypse is showing the PS3's power, at least, judging by those videos.
Units, you ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Pretty much. This game looks better than Crysis 2 and runs natively at 1280x1080p with MLAA. Go figure. :)
@CernaML Must suck being blind. C2 rapes this one in the eye socket. Besides FPS games are technically more demanding than racers.
LMAO, big LMAO. Looks better than Crysis2 LMAO LMAO. Sorry but lol
I was going to trade in homefront and black ops to get crysis 2.. but im gonna hold out another week and stay away from fps for awhiel and get this xD although i would have had this instead of homefront if it wasn't delayed lol.. anyways awesome game xD
What the fuc* happened to Motorstorm? It's now about driving as fast as possible? Music is crap, too. M1 is still king.
Yeah first one was class, still this game is looking just as good
I played the demo and was very disappointed. It was slow and the graphics weren't great. I would rather play Split/Second over this.
The demo isnt that great. Just finished the game though and it actually is pretty good. For anyone who is worried that cars and bikes all use the same routes, Dont be, they still have advantage routes to take. The game certainly isnt slow though and neither are the graphics bad in any way at all. Its a much more complete package than MS 1 or 2. To give a run down. Story Campaign Extra modes (time trial and an extra challenge for those who beat level 8 on MS:PR, Its just as hard) Car and Bike types finally been split into categories Customisation, you can do quite a lot with it too. Easily worth more play time than the last 2. Not all tracks have dynamic events either for anyone who prefers a 'constant' track
I agree with you on the music, drum and bass and rock was much better than this orchestral shite, it really doesn't suit the game.
The music is drum n bass actually, Not really much rock now but its done by 3 pretty well known DJ's. The strings bit from the demo is just one of the songs, A remix by Noisia I think so still technically drum n bass
the game has custom soundtracks...
That doesn't mean they can go ahead and change it to something completely different, the soundtracks in the previous games were probably one of the best things about them. The fact that they changed the song style shows that they don't care about their fans, because I've never heard anyone say they didn't like the soundtracks on the last two. The fact that the game has custom soundtracks shouldn't be used as an excuse for their epic failure of completely ignoring the fans.
just wait and buy the game, 1 song on the demo and you beleive they changed the whole theme. Its drum n bass, I got my copy early, trust me if anything the drum n bass is more core audience now than it ever used to be
"The fact that they changed the song style shows that they don't care about their fans" They don't really care? wow. Have you seen how much effort they've put into this game? If they didn't care about fans they wouldn't have added custom soundtracks in the first place. They clearly care about what people want to listen to because they added the feature. all you have to do is play the MS2 soundtrack when your playing, simple. Also the dramtic music is aimed to go with the feel of the game. The dramatic end of the world theme etc.
no wii fit and halo reach have better graphics and crysis 2(sarcasm smh)
*sigh* yet again another YouTube video... please give me an uncompressed raw file of the video to see for myself...  because as the articles title suggest, its "showing off the power"
The average file size for each of these videos was 20-25GB for uncompressed, so that ain't gonna happen.
My apologies... didn't really think that one through. Still getting day 1 thoguh, (whenever that is) :D
Can't believe they still haven't added cockpit view, oh well maybe next time. Hopefully this one will be as awesome as the last two, definitely day 1!
first video with the hectic storm.... jizzzzzz
The demo rocks, the graphics seem weaker then the previous two, but theres a hell of a lot going on, cant see two many racing fans missing this one
i need some more money to pick this game up
The first thing i noticed in the demo was the bump in vertical res and the implementation of MLAA. Future first party titles should render at 1280x1080 from now on.
you mean 1920 x 1080 right? 1280 x 1080 is used in certain VIDEO codecs where they cheat the 16:9 by stretching... and its not that they dont want to do games in 1080p all the time... its just that it cant be done with the current hardware without some sacrifices... heck... id rather have 720p with uncharted level graphics any day... The thought of a ZELDA in HD on the next gen of consoles makes me drool...
The ps3's RSX is only capable of horizontal scaling. When outputting 1080p, other than full 1920x1080 developers are limited to these resolutions: 960x1080, 1280x1080, 1440x1080, and 1600x1080 The resolution chosen is then upscaled to 1920x1080. Hope that explains it lol. ...aaaand im out of bubbles :P
what sacrifices? and unless i see it on any other platform there are no sacrifices is it on pc? no is it on 360? no only possible on ps3
Pure crazy fun, cant wait
1080P video of a game running with 720p. Does it make sense?
The game renders at a vertical resolution of 1080p. Its not full 1920x1080 but its still technically 1080p.
So it's technically 1080i? AKA the equivalent of 720p. Edit: Whoops, didn't realize it was 1280x1080.
I'll consider getting it. NGP that is...
Does anybody know whether it's native 1920x1080 or upscaled?
Rendered at 1280x1080 then horizontally scaled to 1920x1080
I didnt know that, thats pretty good. Im impressed with this game. Never really got into the series but might check this one out.
I really hope that MotorStorm: Apocalypse is the last game, I want to see a new WRC or IRC rally game from Evolution Studios.
lots of havoc cool
Just because its been captured at 1080p dosent mean it is. No wonder fanboys are trolling when games are realeased and a 720p, with articles like this.
I just wish they could fix those shadows with all the lines in them.
My only problem with the demo were the controls. It just didn't feel like "motorstorm", regarding the handling. It felt really stiff and too quick. Than again, the demo only showcased the two newer vehicles, so the possibility of the traditional handling controls could still be present on the other vehicles. Nonetheless, I was really impressed by the action going on and nearly everything! Apocalypse looks phenomenal, and I can't wait :D
The demo was garbage. What I saw in 3D last year at E3 and what I'm seeing in this demo don't even look like the same game. Not a big fan of the franchise anyway but even if I was I wouldn't be buying this. Honestly it looks like a downloadable title at best. I guess it's out in AU at least if not Europe but it got delayed here. Comparing the visuals in this one and Pacific Rift this is sad smh
I'm sorry but there are games which show the power of the PS3 better than MS:A
Game looks great to me the demo was great aswell. But again big problem is people will not support the developers they will much sooner rush off and get cod mw3 when it releases. Tbh its a waste id much prefer to put my money into games like this that are made for exculsively for the console.
Lots of jaggies around, but it is fun, I have retail game http://www.youtube.com/watc... Time for ps4 . I was not impressed with crysis 2 boring.
Looks meh, i'd say split second looks better.
After spending the last six months gaming on PC exclusively, I must say this looks like shit. LOL. Before any of you point it out, yes, I am trolling.
LOL @ the last vid at the end with the plane that comes down and crashes right before you. I want this game! :D
