Here are some new screenshots taken from a retail version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for the PlayStation 3.
wow impressive... can't wait to pick up COD4 next week
but this contest is even nicer. Win a PS3(or 360),a copy of the COD4 game, plus signed original art from the designers and programmers at IW, and other swag... http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... Contest Ends 11/10. Your welcome.
Looks good. Looks WAAAAYYYYY better on my PC though. : ) But then again I build a rig for $1200 it better look better on my PC!
Advertise the best version just before release yah!
The way things are going this year for the PS3 I pretty much doubt the PS3 will get the better version. All multi platform games seem to be better on the 360 this year since the 360 was the lead platform. I hope the PS3 is the better version or at least equal to the 360 version. At least there will be free online. It will either be this game or UT III for my purchase because I don't want so many shooters. I think UT III will be worth the wait but if it's delayed till next year then COD 4 will be my choice for this year.
they built all versions simultaneously
I really wish u guys would wait till all the versions are released and compared. Or this whole better version thing could turn into a hearty serving of crow. No doubt the screens look amazing, I'm just saying lets not get too happy just yet.
There was no lead platform they built them both from the ground up.
I'm impressed by infinity ward more than anything at how they can make a game like this run at 60FPS at 720p. Development issues? Doesn't look like it.
it runs at 1080p on the playstation.
That's incorrect. Both games run at native 720p and upscale to 1080p (if you so desire) Gorgeous looking game, well done IW :)
please explain, because the ps3 doesnt upscale to 1080p (as far as i know) yet it clearly states 1080p on the back of the box?
Is not native 1080p it is like 1440 X 920 or something like that then upscaled to 1920 X 1080, so yeah the PS3 can upscale.
Its got a hardware scaler for 1280*1080 to scale to 1920*1080. Actually, digging about (found online).. "rendering modes also supported now include 1280x1080, 1440x1080 and 1600x1080. These modes, similar to 960x1080, are capable of being upscaled by the hardware into 1080p/i." Basically, a horizontal only scaler, which is different to the Xboxs one which can scale in both horizontal and vertical
It is software upscaling for the PS3, hardware/software for the 360. Then again, I'm pretty sure all 360 games put 1080p on the back of the box because of hardware upscaling, which is kind of cheating.
because they have dedicated teams working on each version...no porting going on over there, they committed to doing it right from day one.
Both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 can do upscaling. Choosing 1080p in the settings for both the PS3 and 360 is what the consoles will do it's best to upscale to if the games are not already 1080p. It's a lot like resolutions on your computer. You can set your desktop to 1280x960 or whatever you wish, everyone knows that's separate once you jump into a game on your computer. You have to choose a resolution again within the game settings. On consoles, that option is removed. Developers choose FOR YOU what resolution the game is playing. The setting you choose inside console settings is only telling the system what your TV is capable of, and whether or not to go ahead and downscale/upscale the image, if or when needed.
PC games dont' scale, only consoles do that. All PC games display resolution natively, meaning if you set CoD 4 to 1080p, then it is rendering in full 1080p as long as your monitor support that resolution. If there is any scaling at all then PC games will only scale DOWN, they don't cheat and scale up like console games.
Impressive... I wonder what version will look the best, though? I mean, these look awesome, but we all know the xbox 360 is much easier to dev for and thus the dev's probably took the easy route and made their versione ven better. Lazy Smacks!
that the ps3 is the best of the pc and the 360 .
Infinity ward stated before that the PS3 version produced the most accurate colors of any other platform.
You guys need to put the crack pipe down. How the hell can PS3 version look better than the PC? Unless the PC version shipped with inferior textures then maybe thats a possibility but then it wouldn't make any sense would it?
Why do the textures look really bad
maybe its the camera the pics were taken with...its like the colors look oversaturated, especially the 1st 3 images going across [look at the mountain], i saw pics of the game yesterday and those looked awesome but these new images look kinda funny
its the camera
To me it looks like it's running in 480p and not 720p or 1080p.
care to say which image you are talking about and which textures also bear in mind some of these are MP maps.
This is my most anticipated game! I cannot wait until this things comes out. Playing Counter-strike and BF2 on pc got me completely hooked modern day multiplayer FPSs. I just hope in the furture they add KEYBOARD AND MOUSE SUPPORT! (HINT HINT). The PS3 won't be lacking any titles soon enough. Don't care what the xbots say, I love this system.
For the Xbox360 and leave Killzone 2 and UTIII for my PS3.
ps 3 is the better of the pc and 360
Can,t wait for this monster, less than a week to go.
The lagg is F****D UP in xbox live, reason why i quit that system not long ago. Good system but Live SUX and ruins all multiplayer games in it...
Then you, my friend have a crappy connection. I live in freaking Turkey and i'm playing games with anyone and everyone just fine.
When put into perspective... The ps3's 1st year smoked the as of Xbox 360 or wii's 1st year. Easily. Resistance Ridge Racer 7 Fight night round 3 Oblivion Ninja Gaiden sigma Warhawk Heavenly Sword Motor storm Lair < I love the game. It's relaly amazing. Ratchet & Clank Folklore Eye of Judgment Call of Duty 4 Strangle Hold The Simpsons Conan The Darkness Rainbow Six vegas Virtua Fighter 5 All their psn games... Not to mention Assassins creed will drop before their 1st birthday on the 17th and 2 days later Uncharted hits. Ps3's 1st year was amazng. I can't believe people are complaining.
Well put. Have a bubble. And lets not forget, its done it with a high price, bad publicity, competition, dev problems, and constantly whinning FKNing Xbot who claim to hate it but cant stop talking about it. No I think PS3 has had a rough, but successful first year and it hasn't even had its first christmas in most of the world.
It's not important to compare first years... It's important to compare what's there at the same time to buy the console for. And then it still lacks compared to the cost of the platform. It'll change. In 2008, with all the delays of MGS4, FFXIII, KZ2 and GT5 I am betting Christmas 2008 is the best time to get a white PS3 with rumble controller, Home not in beta/delayed anymore for 200 to 300 Euro/Dollar
mart i totally agree with u there 2 b honest - but i prefer non-rumble controllers ( just think, we're the first ever generation of peolle using rumble controllers on games consoles - god only knows what its doing to our arms...) and because they're lighter and battery lasts longer
I don't know what rumble might be doing to our arms, but I sure loved the idea of it massaging my shoulders when I was playing Metal Gear Solid :D
And 5 of those were out on the 360 BEFORE they were on the PS3 so you were saying you were smoking what before you put that into this forum?
This has already been discussed numerous tiimes. The ps3's first year is a joke compared to the 360's first year. That's a fact.
What games did 360 have in its first year? I'm curious, I really don't know, all I know is that most things I read have said there wasn't really much that was very good until GeOW and that came 7 months in or somethin.
can we get some proper 1080p lovely-ness please? EDIT: for the strange people who diagreed, would you rather look at low quality screens?
Im LMFAO wit you bro. About how people keep insisiting that the PS3 uses the same upscaling trick that the 360 does. Once in for all people. Stop trying to place both consoles in the same bracket they are not the same. Xbox360 has a scaler chip. It even has a name "ANA'. Which to me is very disturbing and weird. I even hear some of the die hard xbox fanboys brag about ANA as if she was a real girl and thats even more disturbin and weird. But thats why alot of Xbox360 games are not Native 1080P but they are upscaled by "ANA". PS3 does not have an upscaler. This is a pro and a con. Con being if a game is 720P native thats the highest resoulution you will ever get that game to run at. The Pro being if a PS3 game happens to be 1080P. Best believe it is a Native 1080P. Simpley because the PS3 does not have a hardware scaler that works anything like the hardware scaler in the 360. So please stop gettin if confused. COD4 is however native 1080P on both consoles. Also not upscaled is not the same as native. Upscaling simply blows up the picture to make it run at a higher resolution but you definetly lose image quality. Dont believe make. Set your PC screen resolution to 1024x720 then take a 800x600 size wallpaper and set it as your desktop. The select the "fit to screen" option. Yes it will now fill your desktop but you will see the difference in image quality and there you have it. upscaling 101. Now STFU about it.
The PS3 does have a hardware upscaler, but unlike the xbox 360 one, it can only upscale horizontally, not vertically. http://www.beyond3d.com/con... Quote... "rendering modes also supported now include 1280x1080, 1440x1080 and 1600x1080. These modes, similar to 960x1080, are capable of being upscaled by the hardware into 1080p/i."
I stand corrected bro. The PS3 does have a scaler. But if im understanding this right it isnt used nearly as much as the 360 scaler. In other words here is how it was explained to me by someone who knows a little more than both of us: Me: Does the PS3 have a upscaler Source: Somewhat Source: remember we upscale dvd's and ps2 games Source: 360 upscales their 360 games b/c not all of them are native 720p ie Halo3 640p upscaled to a jaggy mess I believe thats what I was trying to say pretty much. And again im not bashing just trying to show people the difference between the two consoles and how they handle HD output. Enough Tech Talk though I usually leave this to the forum trolls and die hards.
OK, the PS3 has a hardware scaler, its horizontal only, so the following res are supported:- 960x1080, 1280x1080, 1440x1080 and 1600x1080. Each one of them will get scaled to 1920x1080. So if you were rendering at 1280x1080 you would send a horizontally squashed image to the scaler so it looked correct on a 1920x1080 16:9 display. Now, I'm not as teched up on 360, but I think it has both a horizontal and a vertical scaler for typical resolutions. Any standard res can then be scaled to any supported output (480, 720, 1080, possibly 576). The difference is that the xbox is more flexible, but open to dev dropping the res to get frametime back. As people claim about Halo 3 and Gotham. As for the hardware scaling on the PS3 to 1080p, even at the very lowest res the scaler will support, 960x1080, thats still a higher pixel count than a 720p image (1,036,800 vs 921,600)
Alot of Boasting of the PS3 version. Ahahaah Those comparison videos are going to blow the top off N4G with heat. Fanboys expecting the usual outcome that we saw alot of in the early stages of PS3 developement. Your in for a big suprise !!! Guys get your flame suite's ready. Im pickin mine up from the cleaners this afternoon. LOL
man, I not going to lie. I haven't read not one of your comments...I can't get past that picture.....
i think the website will explode when the comparisons come in...
I'll be too busy playing this wonderful game to care about which one looks better.
these are some ugly camera screenshots...
Yeah, poor contrast as well. Shame he didn't have video in to get some direct feed captures.
looks great. I'm sure both versions will look stellar.
Damn this game look's better every time i see it! At first i thought that it would be the same old cod game but this is different. I'm gonna by this for ps3 becouse my pc aint so good anymore. But it is one thing i'm concerned with,It's the aiming,you have to be fast and good at aiming,i hope it's not some kind of help aim on this! Well i'll be buying this beauty when it's coming out for sure!!!
How do you know the Ps3 version is upscaled to 1080p and not native? Have you xbots actually played the Ps3 version? Also the 360 version is 720p only.
How do u know the 360 version is 720p only? Have you actually played the 360 version?
Is is really confirmed that the PS3 version of COD4 is 1080p native?
I think The Darkness is a native 1080p game on the 360 as well as the PS3...could be wrong though, especially with how confusing this scaling crap is... basically if the systems use scalers to get "HD" resolutions...its not HD at all...you can't make true high resolution out of pixels that simply are not rendered...they have come up with some tricks apparently, but its pretty pathetic if its really the case...and it would appear the 360 is using more tricks than the PS3...most developers have confirmed that SCE requires any PS3 game to have an unscaled 720p static image rendered as a minimum...so the native resolution has to be at least 1280 X 720...that is not the case with the 360...
for my killing streaks i want to call in a C-130
got a question for you all, I want to buy the fragfx for the PS3 but my PS3 is seriously 12 feet from where I play, how long is the usb cord and do they have a wireless version out? Bubbles for those who help!
Don't worry about it get an extention cable for the usb that's what I did for my head set. It works great and it can be up to 15ft I think. See you in the game Later.
Monster makes a normal USB charge line for the PS3 (normal USB end for PS3, mini USB end for the sixaxis) that is like 15ft for 8.99...can probably find some cheaper, but it comes with a nice holder for when not in use...irrc...best buy and circuit city have them in stock usually...
Lol. We're getting mre PS3 screenshots from one guy who got the game early than we have gotten from Activision.
Infinityward built this ground up on the ps3 and 360.. Finally some one is doing it right.. Both games should look the same.. But, Game daily said the ps3 version excels over the 360 version in textures, lighting and something else.. I guess we will all have to wait and see.. Im getting the ps3 version because the online is free..
and colors(that was stated by infinityward). that's a decisive answer to all who say that PS3 colors are not good. infinity said that PS3 produced the colors that they had in their minds when they designed the game.
Why dont everybody just S.T.F.U as to which one is better. It was fun for the last 365 days but its getting really retarded. It takes time and if you dont see that. Than your an idiot. Thats how it was then and thats how it is now. Love your console ...anybody know the code to get to mike tyson on the NES... Thank you
