Ubisoft released some ne Comparison Screenshots of Splinter Cell HD that coming to PS3 this Spring.
looks really good... defiantly picking it up.
Looks like they used the Xbox version. Definitely good news.
They're using the PC version. http://blog.eu.playstation....
They ported the PC version actually. There's a post about it on the Playstation Blog. EDIT: ha, looks like Blaze beat me to it.
Well, why isn't this remake on the Xbox 360? We got SC: Conviction.... I might have to pick it up on the PS3.
Either it's a Ubi-Sony deal, or there's simply not enough disc space to put all 3 games in a package, including high-res textures etc.
I'm a huge SC fan.. I wish I could pick this up day one. Anyone have a solid European release date?
Haven't played any of the previous SC, just Conviction and it really didn't impress tbh. Might have to look this up though, really love that they're bringing a lot of the classics back in HD.
Looks like an HD remake of the Xbox or PC version from what I can tell, alot of similar assets being used.For sure isnt a remake built from the PS2 version though. Great to see new life, the first splinter cell was very impressive.
i am not buying it because it has no multiplayer. the multiplayer was epic.
wow. what a difference
yep, cant wait to do some gangster ass ninja shit in hd
Wow, now THIS is what an HD remake is all about. Rebuilt right from the ground up. Well, at least all new high resolution textures throughout the whole game and updated lighting techniques. This is not the half-assed lazy direct port (basically) of RE4 that Capcom is trying to pass off as a HD remake where they have to make the PS2 screens look like crap to make the pseudo-HD version look good. Well done Ubisoft, for actually putting in some effort (and they obviously put in quite alot) on your HD remake and providing a reason to purchase, instead of taking the lazy, money-grabbing Capcon way out. Kudos!!!
well to be fair though, you have to remember that Tom Clancy games on the PS2 were all completely crap compared to the PC and Xbox versions. They are using the PC version of the game here for this collection. Meaning they really didn't have to change much or rebuild anything. If they were to do a remake of the Xbox 1 version...it'd probably still look like the xbox 1 version and it's be like how you're describing the RE4 remake Capcom is doing. If you pick the shittiest version though and remake it from the best version, then you'll have what we have here.
Now, mind you I didn't disagree with you, but I DO disagree with you if you know what I mean. I wouldn't know about the PC version as I've pretty much always been a console gamer aside from a very few select games. But Xbox was the platform I played Splinter Cell on. It certainly looked better than the PS2 version, but it was hardly some kind of huge leap. The Xbox version deffinitely had more polygons, but the truth is they still looked very similar. AGain, I can't speak to the PC version, and I'm sure it looked even better than the Xbox version, and who knows what kind of visual improvements it had with modding. But I can tell you that the Xbox version didn't look anywhere near as nice as these HD remake screens. EVen Chaos Theory didn't look this good, and that was about the best looking console game last gen aside from maybe DOOM 3.
it wasn't just polygons, the xbox version defecated on the ps2 version when it came to lightings (especially), textures, particle effects, and even AI GC and PS2 versions suffered from stupid AI
Actually looks really good compared to other HD remakes.
Agreed, looks great in a 'really bad current gen graphic' look.
This must be first actually remastered game, not only a resoulution change like God of War. Great job Ubisoft, respect. This how HD remaster should be done.
As Blaze has said, this is the PC version that we're seeing on the PS3. With the other HD remakes they used the PS2 versions and upgraded the textures, Particle effects, resolution, and stuff like that. But they were still the PS2 version.
Damn, am I ever looking forward to this. If I don't snag it on one BluRay disc (which I'll probably do), I'll be downloading them (PSN) for sure. It's kind of hard to avoid some of the best Splinter Cell games ever released.
Not that much of a leap from the xbox version though. Its better, but i'm amazed how bad the PS2 version was. Last gen the PS2 was the graphics pig. The Xbox was the more powerful and expensive machine. This gen, the positions have switched.
Actually, it's almost as big of a leap from the Xbox as well. The Xbox version wasn't that big of a leap over the PS2 versions. http://www.youtube.com/watc... I think people remember the Xbox version to be greater than it really was.
100% agree. The Xbox version didn't look nearly as good as these HD remake screens. These look ALMOST like a current gen game, and in fact better than SOME current gen games I can think of.
.....any word on Spies Vs. Mercs?
Nope, no online. Confirmed by a reply on the PlayStation Blog. Sorry.
it's retarded that they would leave such an important feature out.
hmmm... is this game coming out 360? i want this!
¿Multiplayer will be available?
I hope so :/
How making an HD version of Double Agent?....... get it? ;)
Ever played the 360 version? Didn't really look that bad. Looked pretty good for '06, actually...
Agreed, I was pretty shocked with Sam's skin texture. Not bad at all. Also areas in Middle East are not looking much worse than the MGS4 ones.
He probably played the PS3 version and that is why he thinks that. ;) The PS3 version looked worse than the 360 version.
Don't worry Inzo I laughed...
i bought Double Agent 1 year ago for 37fucking pounds, wtf?!?! In my country prices are like that... And i have played it on PC some time ago, on low graphics, but i had extreme lag, and i saw it in store and i LOVE splinter cell games, and on PS3 i thought it will play just PERFECT! but when i got it, frame-rate is TERRIBLE!!! I wouldn't even give 5 pounds for that game. They should release a BIG HD update Patch for Splinter Cell Double Agent, it's definitely possible, it just like everyone who has Double Agent gets patch and its like a DLC game from PSN store. they just want to charge us for that. At least they should make game playable! i mean increase frame-rate, because its just TERRIBLE, like 17FP/S.
MGS HD COLLECTION Still dreaming.. :'(
...and no multiplayer.
thats a real remake its the first hd collection that shows difference
Don't see enought value w/o multiplayer. What a poor choice.
