Take a look at these stunningly clear wallpapers of the anticipated titles of Final Fantasy 13 and Versus.
nice cutscene images.
its actually pretty much common consensus that for FFXIII, the only CG there was is the pic where her hair is ridiculously detailed and the part with Sheva. all else is in game
i won't use them as a wall paper though until they show us something new :-( why is square so hush hush about it? next time it comes up to breathe i expect it to look even better than these screens
Why would Square Enix need the Unreal engine if their White Engine looks this sweet? I can't believe the battle scenes are in-game. Amazing...
simple, 2 years without KZ2, and now it looks amazing, and in final build will look even better. =)
FFXIII ingame looks just amazing, day one purchase for me.
try in-game buddy. PS3's power is coming to fruition and you xbots can't handle it. GT, FF, MGS4, Uncharted, and with COD4 showing the 3rd parties are getting it, the games are only going to look better. 360 is tapped out and we all saw what the Wii can do (remember Xbox anyone?). PS3 runs the tables from 08 on.
Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot about Killzone 2. lol. The power of PS3 is almost scary.
The Unreal Engine is great for a multi-platform solution, and they are using it for "The Last Remnant" which will be available on the 360 and PS3. The White Engine is used exclusively for the PS3, and used for games such as "Final Fantasy XIII", and according to Tetsuya Nomura "Final Fantasy Versus XIII" also exclusively on the PS3. Tetsuya also believes that having his team working exclusively for one platform is an advantage, which is a reason why the White Engine is a greater solution for the PS3 than the Unreal Engine, because of it's specific approach.
According to Square Enix the White Engine along with the PS3 hardware has given them the opportunity to render near CG graphics in real-time. The Engine uses 4 of the 6 SPEs available to the Cell.
I know square from a long time the pics they show for FFXII where much much better than the actual game. Heck FFXII looked like crap at certain levels. Just look at those screenshots they look 10 times better than the highly anticipated Crysis. If square could make graphics like those they would make Crtek, epic and ID out of the engine lisencing market.
Well as for those who think it is realtime will really feel the pain when the game actually comes out.
I dont see this game going multiplatform. Sony has this game Secure, they know that this and metal gear solid are the biggest exclusive to come out. When this game comes out i will get the ultimated edition, not the limited. you heard me right the ultimate one.
Bonsai1214 you know so much about this game. when is going to be release? and does it have online multiplayer? is it 1080p and 60fps? do u know?
lol same question could be asked to you,how do you know its all cutcenes Cgi what bonsai said was logical
because the developers came out and said that almost all the trailer shown at that e3 was real time, and only a portion was CG.
and if you watch the trailer, you can clearly tell which part is in game and which part isn't. The close up that i'm talking about with the ridiculous hair is cg, but the part with her fighting the big monster isn't because you can see the hair took a step down and you can see the edge of the "monster" layer and the beginning of the background. then most of the stuff that happened in the middle was real, and the last bit with her jumping onto the train at the end was cg. not to hard to see with a trained eye that started playing VGs before 2001..
You WISH it were CGI!!!
No doubt if nothing else this game will be a visual masterpiece. Cant wait to see what Square cooked up for the new gen.
Good find. I really want to see this game in motion.
looks awseome better than 90% of what's out already and it's not even near finshed
are you dumb it looks better than anything out. only kz2 and gt5 come even close.
don't get ur panties up in a bunch..that's my opinion..kk...that's what this site is about...gamers opinions...i never said it look awful..
These look fantastic!
look at the polygons on those eyelashes lol
Dont get me wrong guys, I love PS3. But these pics look CG. The reason is that the textures are too high and there is no Aliasing. I saw clearly and there is no Aliasing at all. This is impossible still in this generation games.
I really really hope that I am wrong, but it seems CG.
look closely, I think pic number 1, 6(looks really impressive btw) and 7 are real in game screenshots(its mostly the hair that gives it away). The rest are a class above them.
I think it's about 50/50 CGI/real time game engine. Some of them have that overly smooth CGI look, and others have the smooth but crisp engine look.
Either way it's stunning, and I wish we could get a whole bunch of completely new ones.
I mean it's possible it is real time. I mean PS3 games looks fantastic. MGS4 for example.
just look at the screens closely and its sort of clear which is cg and which is in game. After watching the entire GT FF retrospective, I dont doubt that Final Fantasy XIII is going feature really gorgeous art and going to be another great jrpg.
Gorgeous CGI shots, really stunning! but lets see some ingame gameplay pleeeease
gonna be a great game
look at pic 6. apparantly that is in game.
1 is from ingame cutscene
6 and 7 from ingame gameplay.
3 and 5 definately CGI, about others i am not sure.. =))
it`s easy to tell where ingame and where CGI by lightning`s hair.. but when she is not on screen, it`s harder. =)
i think you are right. 1,3,5 cant be realtime. but the other pics look amazing also.
The first pic does look like it's in real time. If you make a comparison between the first pic and the third pic you'll notice the imperfections. The hair, for example, looks like it has jaggies in the first pic, but the hair in third pic looks smooth and more detailed. So I think that the first pic may be ingame.
Regardless, the graphics of this game are insane.
These images have been out for ages! How did this get approved!?
They went with a woman as the main character. I love the Final Fantasy series but those gender confused leading men really creep me out.
She got striking name Lightning with that style of clothes and her gunsword like Squall.
They're nice screen shot.
I believed, it'll be exclusive for PS3.
These games are one of the many many reasons im soooo happy to have a ps3
For cripes sake guys!
Have you forgotten the 'oh-so-recent' track record?
FF games deliver rich content and immersive japRPGs that is a FACT!
BUT DONT FORGET that thru'out the FF franchise ALL the CG ingame scenes were never matched by the ingame engine.
So why is it that all you people still think the actual game is defined by the Cg cutscenes?
Wake up, smell the coffee!
(this is not even a fanboy comment)
HAHA why is their faboy complaining going on when Final Fantasy 13 is shown? This is one of the top 3 games to be released this generation... only behind maybe mario and I dont know... Gran Turismo. And yes I'm goin by how much the franchise is worth. OK lets be real.... this is the second beiggest game only behid Mario and on the true next gen machines... it is number 1 - BAR NONE. How could you guys actually be arguing over these pictures? They look absolutely PHENOMENAL and its only going to get better. Final Fantasy f@#$king PWNSSSSS SOOOOO BAADDDDD nad its coming exclusively to the PS3 computer entertainment system. Enjoy.
this is one of many other perfect games.
So much spiky hair!
I seriously can't wait for FFXIII! Fun, fun, fun RPG
What is FF 13 Agito? Is it a PS3 game too? I heard they were doing a mobil game for 13 but no way in hell that is mobil.
which is retarted. they should have just done it all one PS3 because it's retarded to do a game with this much anticpation and not give it a proper next gen treatment. FF games should be on next gen platforms. i wouldn't even care if it was done on 360. a ff game on mobil is a waste of tiome and developer money
in this shot we have the hair physics all clumped together rather than look indivvidualized like in the other shoots. which is proof that the game was running on actual PS3 hardware and was ingame while some small snippets was rendered in CG. have alook at the screen here and see what i'm taking about this shoot is in game look at the hair. and then you'll see why Square has this game in the bag and why it will look just as good as the CGI when it hit's late 08/early 09
look and see
its nice, but it is CGI render... not real time version. check the depth of field blur... I'm not sure the engine or any graphic can render that smooth blur in real time yet now.
but look at the beowulf movie~ see what CGI render can do now. it just amazing.
But I admit that realtime render now is now at the same level at FF VIII CGI movie ^_^;
