GB : That’s right folks. Don’t believe us? Uncharted: Golden Abyss is shaping up to be really impressive and is being developed by Bend studios.
PS3 launch titles are running at much huger resolution
Doesnt matter. The end image quality means a lot. Still Uncharted Drake's Fortune is 720p, and Vita is close to that Resolution. Not much but still it's close.
It doesn't matter to the people playing but from a technical standpoint he/she (units) is correct.
Question: What type of screen is the VITA using? Is it an OLED screen.
I think it's already looking better than many PS3 launch titles. http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Not precisely UC:DF though, because it wasn't a launch title(came out almost a year after PS3 launch).
@micro_sony, it uses an oled multitouch screen.
This is why it should be release on ps3. the vita is gonna crash n burn. put it on ps3 so the rest of us can play it.
Actually, 1280x720 is nearly double the number of pixels as 960x544.
I don't care if it's a handheld or if it's the PS3's "little brother", given the number of technical advancements there have been over the past five years, I'd almost expect games on the Vita to look as good if not slightly better than what the PS3 originally launched with back in '06.
TheIneffableBob is right, 1920*720 = 921,600 pixels 960*540 = 522,240 pixels In other words, U:DF run natively at 1.76 times the amount of pixels of the Vita's screen, and we don't know for sure that Golden Abyss is running at native resolution on the vita yet (no reason it shouldn't be).
LOOKS BETTER THAN HALO 3!! I kid i kid... no wait, I'm serious, screw you fanboys, it does look better. There. I said it.
That's irrelevant, only matters how it looks on the screen because since it has no video output nobody will be playing it on a huge HD TV.
When the hackers eventually find a way to get video out ... Cant they find a way to get a game that runs 60FPS to output at 1080p at 30FPS.....battlefield and Call Of Duty gonna be cool on the go.... All i want is for Call of Duty 4 to be ported to this and ill be super happy, and GTA San Andreas would be cool remake on this
Has it been confirmed yet that it wont wirelessly throw its signal to your TV via the PS3 or Bravia Wifi tv?
Lair proved this. I could name several 720p games that looks better than the true 1080p Lair.
I still thought Lair was a beautiful game though...
it actually does...if a game was running 1080p with the exact same graphics and framerate as at 720p it would look better in 1080p.
True, but thats different from the point I was making.
Cause Uncharted Golden Abyss is running on guess what? A handheld.
not even CLOSE! Dont see how any of those screens can compete with any PS3 title.
uncharted fans will pick up VITA and hopefully at launch UC with it
I am, so I'd really like if you people would purchase these. ;)
I would for sure, but i would look forward to a MH title. It would almost be like a tradition since I bought my first PSP along with MHFreedom on the day it came out.
More PSV's sold directly translates to more dev support so it's to the benefit of anyone whos going to own one.
Looks good and certainly comparable to launch titles for the PS3 regardless of whether or not you think it looks better it is certainly within the same league.
5 Pages? Gamingbolt strikes again...
Yeah I have no idea why people still click Gamingbolt. I suppose it's the reason Day-1 DLC still makes huge money: people don't think.
Doesn't matter what the rez is on a screen that size.
We've come a long way in gaming! Never would I have thought to think about or expect the PSVita back when I was little and had a gameboy advance color... still pissed off that I lost it in a mcdonalds playhouse >:( but thats another story.. p.s. LOL @ the dudes typo below. "Warhank" xD Agree or Disagree if you Agree
Does anybody acknowledge that the PSVita actually has MORE TOTAL SYSTEM RAM than the ps3? 512MB + 128MB dedicated VRAM That right there tells me that psvita titles should be able to match or maybe even surpass ps3's titles running 720p or better, at LEAST TEXTURE WISE.....
That is true, but you have to consider the amount of pixels/inch. The Vita has (960*544)/5 = 104448 pixels per inch. The Vita screen is 5 inches. If the ps3 is hooked up to a, lets say, 42' TV, the amount of pixel per inch is (most games run in 720p): (1280*720)/42 = 21943. Conclusion: The Vita has almost 5 times the amount of pixels/inch that the ps3 has. That is why the games on the Vita will look amazing early in its lifetime, if the proper work is put into it ofc.
It's still handheld, amazing but still a small handheld device so it's obviously in no way going to out do the Ps3 in terms of graphics, processing power Polygons and pretty much everything else. The most amazing thing about the Vita is the Cross game chat and 3G online anywhere you go! Day 1
It's mighty impressive but I see some low res textures which Drake's Fortune does not seem to have Launch titles like Warhawk also still look better while doing a lot more too.
Warhank was a launch title?
Drake's Fortune came out in 2007, and the PS3 came out in 2007 as well in the EU; so yeah, it can be called a launch title or atleast a first generation ps3 title.
My bad...wait, Uncharted wasn't a launch title either, was it?
Dont call them launch titles... call them first gen PS3 games. Anyway it doesnt matter the screen and a few low res textures. Compared to what portables can or cant do the VITA is a very awesome piece of tech...
No. Warhawk came out Aug 2007 I think.
Resistance fall of man first title next best game was heavenly swaord
Can't wait, already have it pre-ordered. The only thing I don't like is that I couldn't pre-order the white one, at least at Gamestop.
uncharted wasn't a launch title for PS3, was it?
nop Resistance Fall of Man was though
so was call od duty 3 and i think the game with the "giant enemy crab"
Resistance Fall of Man is the reason I got a PS3 at launch! Glad I did too.
put it on a 47+in tv and see how it looks than
Incorrect use of "than" and you fail to understand that it's a handheld, not a console.
true but i feel they just mean comparatively. Better than the wii games, thats for sure
it still going to look fine, the PS Vita screen res is 960×544 not that far away from 1280x720. I mean, Call of Duty games run at 1024x600 you know. =/ Future Vita revisions need an HDMI!
The PS Vita is a platform that will evolve in future iterations. 3d and hdmi out versions are to makes us buy more than one. But your absolutely right. They just have to make money off it before throwing the kitchen sink.
1280*720 is almost double the resolution (in pixels) compared to 960*544. Don't believe me? Do the maths. Or, if you're lazy, look up at my last post. Now, do we need 1280*720 on a 5 inch screen? No, not really. The pixel density (ppi) at that resolution will be much higher than on any regular hdtv because the screen is much smaller. That said, you're also likely to be closer to it. Look at the iPhone 4's screen, at 960*640 it's not too much higher than the vita, and is considerably lower than even 720p, yet because of the screen size it is one of the sharpest displays around. I do wish the vita had at least matched the iPhone though. Besides that, resolution isn't the be all end all of gaming graphics. Games often run at lower than native resolution to improve framerate, apply better ant-aliasing, use v-sync to eliminate screen tearing (a big problem for the original Uncharted), etc.
Completely amazes me what will earn you a disagree here. His grammar aside, the guy's overall point is correct. Redundant, but correct.
When did Sony gamer's become so obsessed with graphics? Considering this is the only console generation they've actually had any sort of edge, I just find it a bit hypocritical. @PirateThom I didn't realize Halo, Forza, Gears, Call Of Duty, Battlefield, Mass Effect and Batman Arkham City were casual games... @Why o why I did think Gears 1 was the first true next generation game, but I was never all strictly about graphics. I recall last generation when the original Xbox and even the Gamecube had been graphics then the PS2, how all the then Sony fanboys went on about how "graphics don't matter". I just was making a comment about how times have changed. Judging by how fast I got commented on it, it's obviously a sore subject and each insecure Sony fan that disagrees just further proves my point.
When did Microsoft's gamers because so obsessed with casual gaming? Considering this is the only console generation they've actually lost any sort of edge, I just find it a bit hypocritcal.
PS2 gamers were TOO BUSY PLAYING GAMES to care about graphics, which is all Xbox gamers did and Halo. Also, COD, Battlefield, Mass Effect, Batman are multiplatform games. And there are two games on your list that are casual.
nathan your saying ps3 players don't have games now? lol!!! I guess even you know every exclusive isn't worth playing
I don't speak for everyone, but a lot of people, including myself, care more about the games and gameplay than graphics. To you not every PS3 exclusive may be worth playing. In reality it's hard for everyone to get around to playing ALL the exclusives, but that doesn't mean they're not worth playing. This all depends on money, time and taste as well. I mean come on, do I have to say it? You play on 360.... it's like me asking you if every multiplatform game is worth playing, lol.
I game on all systems except pc. But you implied it! @Raven_Nomad PS2 gamers were TOO BUSY PLAYING GAMES to care about graphics, So your saying ps3 gamers aren't playing games which is why look at graphics
Apparently you didn't get the clue from the second paragraph on my previous post. Just because I said that things went a certain way on the PS2, doesn't mean it's not the same story with the PS3. I never implied otherwise, so stop putting words in peoples mouth when you think is convenient. I never even mentioned the PS3 on my original post. I only spoke of the PS2. You're just assuming and turning things into something else. [P.S. People are talking about graphics in this particular article because it's part of the topic].
fact is you implied it which is what I said. Don't be mad you messed up.
Again, I never implied anything regarding the PS3. I only spoke about the PS2. You only see what you want to see. So instead of you assuming anything, I'll do you one better. I'm going to blatantly say that both PS2 and PS3 gamers are too busy playing games to focus on graphics which is all Xbox and Xbox360 gamers do(especially when it comes to multiplatform games).
like how you were so into graphics when gears 1 and bioshock were the graphical kings. Guess theres hypocrisy all over the place aey Oh yeah, forgot about the new found love for casual with a smidgeon of core. Yeah, only fanboys love exclusives now..... I forgot about that just incase you're new to this the ps2 was the strong graphically but the dreamcast and xboxcame out with better graphics. This gen has shown that sony would push for the title which its games have proven on varying fronts and genres SOOO graphics AND games = happier sony fans NOT insecure ones my friend ...in fact what are you doing in here anyway, the mandatory install articles are further down
I think you mean the "Xbox and GameCube" because the Dreamcast was weak as hell compared to the PS2. Or do you really think that the Dreamcast had the power to run games like God of War and FFXII on progressive scan and wide-screen? Even GT4 was 1080i... Dreamcast was much easier to develop for but the PS2 was like 2 times more powerful. Just do a google search for specs, comparison of games and what other more knowledgeable people say.
my bad. I personally liked the dreamcasts look. Less grain if u know what i mean but im not gunna argue with what you said as I was just letting the sony loather that gamers always cared about graphics. Its one of the main reasons people go 'next gen' When sony started pumping technically excellent games at a higher frequency the graphics whores started running with bloody nose to their older brother 'the PC' for back up.
I was surprised at how powerful the little cube was. When I saw Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime, and Wind Waker I was thoroughly impressed.
