Digital Foundry - Face-Off - Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

Thomas Morgan writes:

"To round up, if you're one of the lucky souls who happen to own both platforms, the 360 version comes as a clear recommendation here for its smoother frame rate and clearer image quality, though it should be stressed that the PS3 is no slouch.

Variances in lighting aside, both games offer up very close results in the visual department. The superior treatment of the 360's image comes as a result of its superior edge detect algorithm, where texture-work can look a tad blurred over on PS3 by comparison. The sub-HD native resolution leaves some noticeable aliasing on both platforms too, but the 360's post-processing tackles this with a greater degree of success."

I played the beta on both 360 and PS3 and noticed it immediately. Kinda sad to see discrepancies this large so late into the console generation.

blackbirdi4130d ago

@sltPoison i think its an engine issue coz the fxaa implemtation has the same script

yewles14131d ago

They gotta' stop using FXAA on the PS3 through the RSX, it's bad. MLAA through the Cell is much better.

Oldman1004130d ago

I like this comment:

"GRAW2 (2007) - 1280x720
GRFS (2012) - 1024x600

I love this generation."

jetlian4130d ago

well thats what they have to do to get better gfx

andron4130d ago

But why is the AA implementation different on PS3, couldn't they have fixed this so the two versions looked the same?

DF should get an interview with the devs and find out...

Have there been any reviews for this game?

Akira20201452d ago

Wait till you guys see all the Pay To Win micro-transactions that are in this game!! Yes, everything from buying weapons (NOT just skins), to attachments, to skill unlocks, to "time savers", etc....and this is just naming a few. Check out the videos online for Breakpoint's Store!

I was so jacked for this game, but now it's a pass just like this year's COD.
I'm predicting that these greedy companies will soon be the death of video games as we know it.


Revisiting Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

Gamerheadquarters; "Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was a shooter that felt tactical, slightly futuristic and was a blast when played cooperatively."

This is the only game in the franchise that I’ve played

skycaptin52015d ago

I heard the latest entry Wildlands was solid, the Advanced games were enjoyable and the free to play that no longer exists was alright from what I remember.

Zjet2014d ago

Future Soldier is damn good.

Advanced were also great.

Wildlands is really good.... It's like Open World SOCOM

PUBG2014d ago

Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm on PS2 and Ghost Recon: Island Thunder on Xbox were also awesome games.

2pacalypsenow2014d ago

You should really give Advanced Warfighter 1/2 a try.

TheColbertinator2014d ago

Ghost Recon has gone in all kinds of directions but I've enjoyed them all

icerob2014d ago

I have been waiting forever fór GRAW2.. please please please!!!

Elwenil2014d ago

You are a bit late, GRAW2 came out in 2007.

COZMIC2014d ago

I loved this game back in the day. Played multiplayer a lot with my friends. Only complaint I really had was how overpowered the auto turret was in multiplayer. Good times.


3 more arrivals hit Xbox One via Xbox Backwards Compatibility – Are they worth the return?

Carlos writes: "Once again, the Xbox Backwards Compatible library is expanding and with 2018 already proving to be a great year for the program, even in these early months, new titles can only be a good thing right? With that in mind, let’s jump into this week’s additions to see which Xbox 360 titles have hit Xbox One and whether or not they are worth spending time with once more."

Still waiting on Splinter Cell Blacklist

LucasRuinedChildhood2015d ago

Badass game. Way better than Conviction. Cool split screen co-op too.

mikeslemonade2014d ago

Are they worth the return? No.

BC not needed.

Grown Folks Talk2014d ago

The entire series please. Either a X enhanced Chaos Theory, or a remastered Chaos Theory in the Blacklist engine will do.

ULTp0ltergeist2014d ago

Wouldn't mind it at all especially with some enhancements.

chris2352015d ago

no. no backward compatible game is worth anything. i looked at playstation now the other day because finally it‘s available in switzerland. but the only thing that emerged by browsing the old unaltered titles were question marks. it is beyond me who uses this service or prefers to play something very dated instead of playing the actual versions.

starsi3602015d ago

Not everything has to be about how up to date the graphics are.

There are many games from the 360/PS3 era that stand head and shoulders above their current iterations from a gameplay perspective.

Halo 3 campaign versus Halo 5 campaign for example. Halo 3 for me is a very enjoyable game, I found 5 to be bland an uninspired (the multiplayer was good though)
