According the the costs shown in Amazon. PC and WiiU versions of Metro Last Light are suppose to cost less.
lol and they will likely be the 2 best versions
Metro Last Light : 1. Global Illumination ( 2033 had it disabled ) 2. Heavy use of 3D objects instead of sprites ex : the moss in 2033 was 2D , but in Last Light its 3D 3. Full use of Tessellation. See the humongous number of worn out cars and the huge number of men in a room in the screen shots. 4. Super quality textures : Metro 2033 had on average 2k by 2k textures. With LL it only gets better 5. Metro 2033 was the first game that was developed with developers wearing 3D vision glasses, may be LL will continue the trend 6. Animations have been improved , cloth physX ,better sound , more wide open levels. 7. Attempt to fix all the complains the original had 8. Still use the original formula of survival horror not a COD remake 9. In summary : This could be the most improved sequel this generation.
To get another surprise zoom in the grasses or leaves of this image: http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/... Then zoom in the leaves of this image http://bf3blog.com/wp-conte... What you see is that leaves in Battlefield 3 occupy two dimensional planes , where they bend , they bend suddenly in order to reduce polygon count but that does not happen in Metro Last Light Now zoom in the branches of this image http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/... Then zoom in the brances of Battlefield 3 trees, The branches in Metro spread out in different directions , another example of the extreme geometric detail used in Metro Last Light Zoom in the shoe of the man in this image http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/... then zoom in the shoe of the man in this image http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... Now zoom in at the face of the boy in this picture ( remember who he is ?) http://www.fernbyfilms.com/... Now zoom in at the face of the man in this picture http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/... Are we close or have surpassed the Milestone ???
Metro just needs a new vegetation engine. from what i can see its the same one... very crude sprite system for the smaller branches and grass. infact... that looks alot like s.t.a.l.k.e.r foliage
No way MEH
I thought this always happened? Why is it news lol...WiiU isn't that shocking either since Wii games were cheaper too.
the $10 price hike this gen was the result of corporate greed and NOT a rise in the cost of developing software. After speculation that Witcher 2's budget was a mere 8 million, this will reaffirm the notion that downsizing resolutions and spending months optimizing code to run at acceptable framerates on "HD consoles" was the real culprit. I think it's also significant because it means Nintendo is serious about luring 3rd parties back. They're ensuring the WiiU will not suffer the same launch issues as the 3DS.
PC games always was less than Xbox 360 and PS3 nothing new really.. but Wii U to cost less that a shock.
yeah looks like nintendo is pulling out all the stops but wii u won't be NEARLY as powerful as a modern day single gpu high end pc :/ its way too small to accommodate a cooling solution required by high end parts besides nintendo is being cheap as usual(thats why wii u doesn't support hard drives or even basic dvd playback) it will probably match a 2006-7 high end pc which would still be FAR superior to ps3/360 @below external HDDs cannot be used to help streaming speeeds and reduce load times nearly as much as internal HDDs . besides you only have the option to use your external HDD as usb storage or an sd card the consoleby default relies on 8gb onboard storage it doesn't support internal hard drives the way ps3 and 360 does Nintendo is being cheap again whats your excuse for no dvd playback even ps2 and xbox1 had that and all current consoles(ps3, 360 and wii) have it but wii u does not.
"thats why wii u doesn't support hard drives " It does, an external one.
PC games are almost always cheaper than consoles versions...why is this surprising? Wii U on the otherhand, hmm....
