Uncharted Golden Abyss vs Among Thieves: Which one looks better?

GB: "Uncharted had a great showing at E3. On one hand, Drake Deception’s demo was enough to melt our brains and on the other hand Golden Abyss amazed us with its innovative gameplay mechanics and controls. After getting a hands on session with the game during E3, we were convinced that Golden Abyss looked better than Among Thieves. Ever since Golden Abyss was first shown during the PS Vita reveal, Uncharted fans have been wondering whether this is the best looking game in the franchise yet.
Today we answer your questions by comparing some of the recently released screens of Golden Abyss to some in game screens of Uncharted 2.
Please not that its almost impossible to match the camera angles of the Vita version, so they are a bit off. But should be good enough to give you a great idea on how the two games match up." (PS Vita, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted: Golden Abyss)

The funny thing is, they both looks AMAZING. Damn near the same.

Glad the Vita is HD
Being accustomed to HD gaming for me the PS Vita achieves a level of graphics performance that is palatable.

I also believe this will apply to millions of nerdy geeks like me who are graphic lovers who enjoy jaw dropping graphics as much as tight controls and game plays.

This will be the Vita's selling point: graphics!

And looks like the Vita will be my first OLED purchase and lunch console of all time.

I love Organic LED and all organic stuff like vita-mins. So the Vita will be close to my heart.

UC:GA has amazing contrast (its OLED! your blacks will be real blacks) but Uncharted 2 still tops Uncharted Golden Abyss hands down.

It was hoping the Vita was on par with the PS3 graphically but this will do for now.

I hope that the next PlayStation device will be a powerful home/portable all-in-one device.

There must be something wrong with the U2 screens. There is no way U2 is gonna look blurrier than the NGP game when the game's running at twice the resolution.

Probably has to do with the shadows. As is displayed in this scree for example:

Gamingbolt compresses the shit out of their images. Their comparisons are fucking pointless to begin with.

PJ you can still see that UC2 has more going on in the background detail. Drake's character model is close though. Still an amazing achievement for a handheld. Love UC series definitely a God send for this generation.

Golden Abyss graphically compares more closely with Drake's Fortune.

Maybe the 2nd Uncharted game for Vita will look like Among Thieves.

this is what i'm thinking as well

Stretch them over a 42+ inch screen and see if they still look as close. They wont.

nuff said.
koehler83  +   1287d ago
Oh c'mon.

At least compare Golden Abyss to Drake's Fortune.
KillerPwned  +   1287d ago
Golden Abyss looks better then Drake`s Fortune but does it surpass Among Thieves.......no it does not.

LAME article . . . LOL
cochise313  +   1287d ago
I hope golden abyss is a launch title.
WooHooAlex  +   1287d ago
Looks increbible, its much closer to Drakes Fortune tho. I'd love to see Naughty Dog make an Uncharted game for Vita after they finish up UC3.
beast242tru  +   1287d ago
i dnt think the uncharted 2 screens were from final build but i do know that the vita is a beast
Inzo  +   1287d ago
The better comparison would have been Golden abyss against Drakes fortune because at this moment its a loosing battle against U2.
mttrackmaster38  +   1287d ago
Maybe Ps vita will eventually have a game that graphically challenges Uncharted 2.
Bay  +   1287d ago
Uncharted 2 looks better, but Golden Abyss looks pretty damn good too.
Liamario  +   1287d ago
Absolutely ridiculous question. Not even going to read the article. The title is enough to make me want vomit while laughing uncontrollably!
rob6021  +   1287d ago
UC: DF runs at a higher resolution, but Golden abyss will look very impressive and hold it's own on an OLED screen.
starchild  +   1287d ago
Mighty impressive for a handheld. It looks surprisingly close.
e-p-ayeaH  +   1287d ago
mainstream media everyone...
kudakadere  +   1287d ago
It's hard to tell , in a way you should be compering Abyss to UC1 since as Abyss is the first one on the platform.

I don't get it... is this what passes for journalism these days?
