Some one in the Forums has managed to get COD4 earlier than most and has posted some retail screens for the game including PS3 XMB shots and box arts. Hit the jump and see all the excitement
that screen shot with the gun looks amazing and someone took it from there camera of of there tv screen. it's pretty impressive. my first day purchase
It looks awesome.The great thing about it is that it was built separately its not a port.So 720p at 60fps sounds great to me.
graphics are really nice. We will see if the PS3 version is really superior.
Check out this attachment, it's from that alternative source. It lists on the back of the box: 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. Does that mean NATIVE 1080p, or could it be upscaled (I didn't think the ps3 did that with ps3 games)
edit - ok, the picture wont post for me, but check out that alternative source and go to page three.
Edit 2 - ok pic is up. I had to change it from png to jpg.
May be they have discovered a way to get that upscaler inside PS3 do the job :)
Because If it's native than ....I wont say anything
Can't wait until this friday
What rez is the 360 version?
are you waiting for a 640p answer? :D
Why would it matter?
I believe the 360 version is the same 720p at 60fps.I know the PS3 version is so I'd imagine they're the same.
Both versions are identical, though, correct me if I'm wrong, 360 has hardware upscaling? So technically, you could get 1080p upscaled from 720p on the 360. Unless the upscaling is only for Xbox games. Both are 60fps though.
Infinity Ward said they overhauled the PS3 version and now the lighting and particle effects look the best on the PS3 version because they had more to work with...AKA - Cell
Hell you could probably get 5400p with upscaling, it is scaling after all. It doesn't magically mean you have a native 5400p game.
Open photoshop, notice how you can scale an image as big as you want to. What is the obvious problem with this?
It would matter because it would prove that the PS3 is indeed more powerful than the 360. If this game runs @ 1080p native with that level of graphics fidelity. I think this completely validates what Sony has been saying about the power of the PS3. I've always said all along that out of all the three systems I have I'm most optimistic and excited about the PS3 because the approach they took in the design of the PS3 is so radically different that it might produce something beyond what we are used to. It's great to be a gamer.
wait for this game it will be amazing =D
I wouldnt be suprised if it is
How long is the game anyways, as I wouldn't get it if it is less than 6 hours.
If its too short, you can always trade.
has this really been developed separate instead of ported???
Amazing how there are NO problems & Delays developing from the ground up, vs porting from the 360.
The COD2 engine was ported to the PS3 and upgraded. The guys at Infinity Ward are geniuses. They managed to get the engine up and running without a hitch in just 3 months.
that makes EA sports look like idiots.
very nice. this just adds to the excitement. only one more week.
I want one my best buy had them but I didn't have the money :-\ they are selling them early
That picture looks amazing with the gun! BTW guys, CoD4 will run at ATLEAST 60fps on PS3. ATLEAST. Plus, we'll be getting some "special love" for PS3 according to an Infinity ward rep.
this special love might be that the game runs nativley @ 1080p 60 fps ..... how SWEET would that be
Looks great but I'll pass if its single player is shorter than 8 hours
eh. Call of Duty has always been known for its multiplayer. Ever since I started playing it on the PC, the MP aspect was amazing.
can't wait for release, CoD has always had short single player so i'm not worried about the length of the campaign its the quality that matters with IW games, plus the multiplayer is really awesome so definitely worth picking up
Rental at best though x360 downgrades multiplat games really bad.
i will buy Haze and Unreal 3 instead real mans shooters.
and they know how to develope on hardware look at cod 2 the 1st game on 360 it is so good graphics and game play and its the 1st generation 360 game and there doing the same with the ps3 .... infinity ward rocks
I wasn't hugely convinced, but apparently OPM UK has reviewed the PS3 version at 10/10. That's pretty rare for them, and I'm kinda swinging round to getting it now.
Bah! I have so many games to buy, and too little money.
I agree. It wasn't until recently that I realized how many good games are coming out this winter. I've pretty much decided to limit myself to one game on each platform though I may end up breaking that promise.
@13.1: Well, I reckon you're in for some hard decisions. I'm finding it very difficult to limit myself to just 5 PS3 games between now and Christmas as there are so many good titles coming out. I can't imagine how hard it is going to be for cross-platform gamers to make their choices.
Good time to be a gamer, huh?
gamespots review will probably look like this
COD4 - X360 10/10
COD4 - PS3 7.5/10
for being too similar too the 360's version
@13.3 LOL, it will be funny if COD4 is excelent in both consoles and other games with inferior graphics suffer in PS3 that would prove that there a lot of lazy developers out there
...and they'll probably review the PS3 version first....
Already got my credit card at hand for this one. If this game controls and plays as good or better than Resistance then am gonna be happy with my purchase.
Another question does it have split screen co-op? I doubt online but i really hope it has split screen. I did a quick search but can't seem to find anything that says definatly.
But seeing that Infinity Ward is proving that they're not taking the half assed route it's now down to a matter of which version my friends will be playing the most online.
which means you'll pick up that version, your a worse multiconsole owning fanboy then i am.
...this game will pwn all.
Fact: game will sell more on 360 then ps3.
Go away troll.
Am sorry how did we get to the point where were comparing sales? Get a life either buy the game or don't hell if sales mean that much to you then you can buy 2 copies for the Xbox360.
You wont see a dime of the sales profit anyhow
I will be playing the same game online for free
WIlliam is gay.
I love how you say FACT like it means something. I bet it sells more on the larger install base too...douche.
You say "Go away troll" and yet an earlier comment on this posting you state that the 360 version is SD not HD. Before you start calling other people trolls perhaps you better take a good look at yourself.
I'm guessing you're living under a bridge waiting for some billy goats to risk a crossing.
He has some sort of grudge against me now. Haha!
"Go away troll"
Did you read what you wrote up above? My god kid grow the hell up.
lets see which console has a bigger install base, 360, so obviously it will sell more, and if it doesn't sell more then there's something wrong. Anyways who really gives a sh!t which sells more. Personally i'll be picking up the ps3 version if all the rumors about the better lighting are true but will see.
WilliamRLBaker has no life.
of course it will theres more xbox360s out there
William suck at FPS Games
...for the actual game to be released and compared on the 360 and PS3 before start all the sh*t. We all know what the developers have said with regards to the PS3 version but that does not make the 360 version the rancid pile of sh*t PS3 owners would like you to believe.
I for one think this game is looking brilliant on all formats although I am concerned about the length of the single player campaign. However, after playing the multiplayer beta I'm guessing most of my time will be spent on-line anyway.
The best thing about playing on-line is that there are no fanboys quoting things like "Play B3YOND", shesh, as if that actually means something anyway.
COD4 on PS3 looks great. I should knw i am on the Gamers Advisory Panel for Sony. Finally separate teams working on the game for both consoles. ANd they both look remarkable. PS3 is finally getting the needed attention for the developers. I wish just like PCs we could play against each other. One shoould have the right to chose whiever system he or she prefers to use. You got a Dell, i have a Mac so what we can still frag each other in the same game. Anyway console wars would not be the same if these kinds of features were allowed. Good will hunting to you all.
P.S PS3 Rocks!
I think that would get pretty ugly.
I added the main source of the images under Alternative Sources. BTW there have been 2 more screen shots added.
Check out this attachment, it's from that alternative source. It list's on the back of the box 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. Does that mean NATIVE 1080p, or could it be upscaled (I didn't think the ps3 did that with ps3 games)
edit - ok, the picture wont post for me, but check out that alternative source and go to page three.
it is upscaled...IW confirmed 720p @ 60fps for the PS3...it was an interview from a playstation magazine, so it didn't get into the 360's specs...of which I never saw confirmed, but probably the same...unless they did some bizarre Halo 3 buffer for whatever reason...SCE doesn't allow less than 720p native for a PS3 game though...not sure if that is a hardware issue, or licensing stuff...MS apparently doesn't have restrictions like that though...
the PS3 will do upscaling now...it just does it software based unlike the 360's hardware I think...1080p upscaling was never a problem though, it was issues with 1080i only televisions...in which a 720p game would run in SD on a tv that only had 1080i HD (the PS3 wouldn't take a 720p signal and convert it into a 1080i signal...and since some older HD tvs didn't have 720p, the ps3 outputted 480i/p instead...pissing the entire world off)...that was later fixed in a firmware update iirc...although it is still an issue on a few launch titles...
that alternative source shows some great shots though...whatever resolution it is, it looks fantastic...
"that looks better than what i saw in the 360 beta. can't wait."
ONCE AGAIN XBOTS, 3FIXME = PWNED
Uhh wait now... beta... not done.... what?
For your sake i hope you are right.
Imagine the backlash if the 360 final version is as good/better than the final ps3 version.
If it turns out that the PS3 is better, then congrats PS3 - it surely is the first time that the ps3 has been better, isn't it?
But if the reverse turns out to be true, then I challenge you to post on the 360 threads telling everybody what a bigmouthed idiot you have been, huh?
That would be a matter of integrity for you right?
its not the first time...why do people pick and chose what they want to hear only to fit their opinion...
Oblivion...confirmed by every single mag and site...looked better on the PS3 than any other platform...yeah yeah it came out later...but it looked the best on the PS3...enough that Bethesda said "we are working on a patch to fix loading and graphical issues with the 360 to get it up to par with the PS3"...last I heard...that patch never happened...
Dirt...looked staticly identical to the 360...however had a far superior framerate...but the game sucked on all platforms...so it doesn't matter...
Oblivion is the only highly rated multiplatform game to hit both systems except for R6 Vegas...both Vegas and Oblivion were also later confirmed to only use the 3.2ghz PPU of the Cell, without any of the SPEs...which affectively makes it a 3.2ghz single core processor...1/3 of the 360s processing power roughly...Vegas had less bloom lighting (so on a technical level, the 360 was superior...but some people dislike large amounts of bloom...making which version looks better an argument entirely based on opinion)...
the 2 highest rated games to hit both the PS3 and 360 were the same, or in one case...better on the PS3...every other multiplatform game was a half-assed junker in the first place...People like madden and everything, but no one rights home about its visual quality...and what other game was better on the 360 that is worth mentioning?...Splinter Cell: Double Agent?...hahah...FEAR?...it is so obvious how little effort went into that port there is nothing else to say about it...it looks like a PS2 game on the PS3...
CoD 4 is definitely the biggest and most hyped multiplatform game to hit this generation...and its pretty apparent that both versions are so incredible looking that it isn't worth comparing...
is really amazing on the PS3...
