Game companies are trying to expand the Field Of View with Next-Generation Console FPS games. The current FPS games use a field of view of 60 right now.
I really hope there are less shooters next generation, and more variety
Your welcome :) lol
It's true, but I don't mind first person games in general. I liked mirrors edge, though it was a bit rough. Skyrim of course, though it could use a combat system a bit closer to demon souls. Dark messiah, umm other games. There's not as many as there are shooters. In any case first person games damn well better have a better fov. Third person games should as well. I'm playing kingdom of amalur right now and it's narrow fov hides how beautiful the world is.
I know this probably wont happen but I wish next generation consoles supported triple panels (eyefinitiy / nvidia surround) like PC gaming currently does. Forza and GT do on the consoles but it takes 3 consoles and 3 copies of the game. Triple panels is insane and people are so much easier to spot camping in FPS games on triple panel setups. It honestly levels the playing field. With racing games it really adds a whole other level of immersion (well it does for every game that supports it) and makes it easier to corner. That is what I want most from next gen consoles as far as viewing perspective with displays go. Pic included of my triples. Seriously gaming on this setup is just amazing and so addicting.
If more people would buy games like rayman, prince of persia, and things like that then we would. The games go where the money goes. It's all up to the consumer. Buy the games you want to see more of.
They broke PoP though :P I bought the awesome ones because I wanted to see more of them... then they went and crapped all over the series.
U say that, but if 80% of games on the market are shooters then gamers hardly have a choice. Also im buying Xenoblade Chronicles, Ni no Kuni, Tales of Graces f. RPGs make more of them.
I was about to say the same thing. Hopefully there are more JRPG's in the same way there were a ton of greats in the 90's. I really hope companies like Level 5 start making more games like Dark Cloud. Hopefully Square starts to pump out games year after year again. And maybe that will inspire all of these developers making these fps games (which end up all being the same thing) to make new and innovative games.
I hope theres still plenty of first person games. Can we just lose the shooter part. It's called innovation and it's not limited to a 3rd person or fixed camera view :)
Playing Killzone 2 with its 45 degree FOV makes me laugh. Let's hope they can keep those FOVs at at least 75 for next gen games.
Metroid Prime Next on the Nintendo Wii U console will be the true showcase of what next generation capability can do for the 1st person shooter. Locked in at 60 frames per second at true 1080p with next generation graphics followed up by true future proof tech. With a holy gaming box such as the Nintendo Wii U backed up with the newest innovative controller in the business today. Not only Metroid, but other shooters on the Nintendo Wii U will stand heads and shoulders above the crowd. All of that will be only possible on the Nintendo Wii U console. Rated E For Everyone
What I like about this guy is that he doesn't see the need to hate on other platforms just because he's in love with Nintendo. . .unlike his counterpart DarkSniper who just simply hates everything that isn't SONY. Truth time: if he'd said all those things about sony, he'd have a heck of alot more agrees.
True. He may be rabid about Nintendo but at least he doesn't bash the competition. The Sony statement was too true. His agrees and disagrees would be switched.
I don't know how long you've been on this site but he doesn't sound like DarkSniper since his literacy skills are much weaker and his comment sounds like a typical OpenZone comment.
You say you like that he didn't say anything about Sony....so why in the hell did you bring them up? Trying to start a wildfire?
@LX General Koas I am sure you find humour in doing this dont you?Your account was even made in Feb...You must be doing all this for kicks theres noways your head is this far in Nintendo Ass. LOL for what it is I always give you bubbles because your comments are funny.
Er... maybe. The FoV is chosen based on screen size and distance though... why would that change next gen? Though I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of games this gen have had it low to reduce graphical strain (potential of less polygons/resources to be culled if the FoV is higher) I know, they should let the player change it :/ Just like some other graphical things (multiplayer at 30fps is dumb for example, so why not allow lowering some IQ settings?) Also, wtf is that site even on about: "The larger field of view will also make 3D run smoother" lol, moron 'journalist'. Remember to downrate this junk site.
not a good idea. Those with small TV sets will suffer the most because things will look much more smaller. It could work great for PC gaming where you sit less than 1 feet away from the monitor but for console gaming, unless you have a 50" TV I don't see this as being very convenient.
So...just because some people r playing on tube tvs those of us that wish to see more on screen can't?
Why dont they only add the fov to higher resolution consoles. Because its very rare to have a small tv if youre going high defination.
They just need to add a slider to the games and let people pick the FoV they want.
Video games for life! i came out of my mommy with a joystick in my hand, an imma die with one in my hand :)
bullshit thats depands on how you setup your camera --' and if you don't agree with me send me a pm and i will show how to do that
It's for video games, not cameras.
Dude its a camera in the game engine ....i hate people when they Talk about something and they Don t Have any idea dude make your research about blackbirdi and you will Know who i m -:)
The issue lies in that when you increase the fov in a game it requires more rendering power. Hence why console games are locked at such abysmal fov settings.
I'm a bit confused by this FOV thing - it seems like the bigger the number the less zoomed the screen is. I don't want to be too zoomed out but I definitely could be missing something important here. I understand I probably sound moronic but I've never heard of this before. What number would reality be?
180 degrees. It would be impossible to have 180 FOV on one monitor cause it would look horrible. So that means consoles would have to support more than one Tv. I bet someone probably managed to hack the XBOX 360 to have more than one tv connected at once.
But vision is focused on say 80 degrees with the periphery always blurred.
This is one of the dumbest rumors I have ever heard.
