Comparison video of God of War: Chains of Olympus on psp at 222mhz vs 333mhz.
The graphics are amazing for the psp, and since the change in clock speed the are pretty big differences
is very noticeable one looks like a beta opposed to a final product, that was pretty ridiculous they were able to add two-five extra people per battle and the game and particle effects are significantly more polished its like a first year game vs late second year game.
I just may have to go out and buy one now
Looks better than a lot of Wii games.
unfortunately i have to agree. if only there were developers like this working on the wii. (ones that take time and polish the game up nicely) apart from nintendo of course
... "bu..bu..but it's about gameplay not graphic!!"
*Psst! Ninty fans, you do know other consoles have (gasp!) BOTH, right?*
Ironicly Ready At Dawn (the one who's making this game) is working on a Okami port for the Wii.
Wow Douche that is a ridiculous #s of agrees, and I'm one of'em, truer words were never spoken.
The funny thing about that comment is that its true.
if u gotta pass the N4G Contributor Test to be able to post stories?...I tipsed this video & i'm trying to see how i can post it or post other gaming information in the future....
EDIT:Ok, thanks man.
You are correct sir, you must pass the test to post stories.
The test is easy...
maybe WAY too easy considering some of the trash that gets posted here or how some people feel obligated to modify plain articles into flamebait >.>
Looks so much better. Frame rate improved as well.
i thought it would be a pointless improvement, clearly im wrong.
it takes the game from ps1 to ps2 qualities by the 111mhz jump.
Totally worth the extra drain on the battery. I just hope all developers only use the extra power boast when they need it.
Since the CPU was up'd on the PSP from it's base, can that be possible to do later with PS3 and Cell. Cause I know that Cell has eight SPU's on it's one Processor, but two of those are not enabled to handle game code, so is it possible that later on we might see games that use 7 or even all 8 of the SPU's?
Back to the topic at hand, I never would've thought that 111mhz increase would help so much, I would think faster loading maybe a few graphical enhancments but the difference is almost PS1 to PS2 upgrade.
SWEET! use of a CPU.
Side question: does anybody know how much that extra 111Mhz takes away in battery life.
I need to upgrade my PSP.
Me too. After Christmas Im trading mines in for the PSP Slim.
Uhm.....Your PSP V1 WAS upgraded to 333Mhz, when you downloaded the latest firmware.....the only difference between V1 and V2 PSP is the weight and redesign....
Dear LORD, those are big differences!! Maybe not PS1-PS2 diffs, but definitely early PS2-late PS2 I mean it looks practically as good as GOW2. I never would have thought it could be that much better, wow. I don't yet have a PSP (been waiting for FF7:CC) but hey, If I have the money, GOW:COO is a system seller as well!!
The difference is definetly noticeable...this game looks better than Lost Odyssey...lol
really visual differences, and love it.
On a side note
Man i got to get me one of those slim psp's by trading it in. i wish there was a black slim psp in North America
Awesome, getting a Slim & Lite TODAY, oh yesss. It's not intended for me though, its a christmas present for ma girlfriend, but I have a strong feeling she's not gonna get to use it alot...
This is extremely cool, whay'd go developers squeesing out extra powa!
And I am glad I did. I had the original PSP but thought I would rather have the lighter design. Now with this game on the horizon, I am glad to be back into the PSP. Man that game looks great!
I have always had problems watching their videos.
Someone posted that with the firmware update, original PSP's were upgraded to 333mhz. Is this true? Is there a way to tell on my PSP? I do not have the new slim and would certainly hate to have to trade in for the new model just to play Chains.
ALL PSPs had this feature from the beginning, Sony locked it out from developers to save on battery life but they've been finding ways to boost life for games so it has been unlocked.
Thats it, im trading my psp for the slim....
its already been stated many times, so for the last time: You do not need to trade in your PSP. All PSPs (yes, even the ones from launch a few years ago) have a 333mHz processor. Sony initially locked it to 222 to help with battery life Again, ALL PSPs have a 333mhz PROCESSOR.
psp sales will be big next week in japan sales in excess of one hundred thousand the big red one,s out and its first and second on amazon japan
Holy sh1t, that's faster than PS2's 299 Mhz processor! Well, at least on clock speed. Furthermore, PSP plays at a lower resolution than the majority, if not every PS2 game. That allows this particular God of War to look perhaps even better than GoW2. Or at least, I can't really say that GoW2 for PS2 looks better than this game.
you don't need to
Wow, the GOD OF WAR on PSP is awesome. I was already blown away by the demo. Can't wait to buy this game.
People are like "Im so shocked at the difference 111mhz made". If you think about it logically the originally psp was locked in at 222 mhz. Its now at its full speed of 333 mhz, thats a 50% increase. Of course thats gonna make a noticeable difference.
