Gamepro counts down the 8 most visually impressive games from TGS '06. The number one games was kind of shocking, but all of the games look amazing.
...i think this list was supposed to be comprised of (playable) games, hence MGS4 coming in last and GOW not being included at all (at least i think it wasn't playable at TGS?). kind of a shocker to see RR7 at #1, but hey, there you have it. nothing concrete, nor indicative of what will actually happen once gamers have a chance to choose for themselves. but still a fair summation of the graphical capabilities of both systems.
MGS wasn't playable, was it?
MOST of those games weren't playable. The guy who wrote this article must have been on crack... Ridge Racer 7 at #1? Yeah right! Even for a Sony fanboy, there was GT:HD. If you're not a Sony fanboy, Forza had a showing. Oh, but I forgot: IT'S RIDGE RACER! RRRRRIIIIIIIIDGE.... RAAAAACEEERRRRRR!!!!! And apparently, that's all that matters.
Uh, guys, I don't think you realize that the piece was highlighting the "Top 8 Games", not a ranked, "Top 8 Games, In Order".
Once I saw they didn't include Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey which showed actual gameplay. I knew this article was all but bias.
i think they were talking about graphics, not gameplay.
Wow. I would've chosen Motorstorm, or F1. But yeah, looks like they only counted playable titles (which makes sense).
Ummm... Who played this one?
Its a tad biased being since it comes from Mr. Marbles.....He is the Sony editor at Gamepro.com. Its neat to see he actually tried to be fair by naming a couple 360 games in his top 8. But he clearly favors the ps3 in all of his editorials...being that he is the Sony editor for the site. We'll see who wins the most awards from this years show. http://gamepro.com/communit...
Pic comparison for MGS4 http://www.wii60.com/videog...
most of the people at the show seem to say differently, but everyon is entitled to their opinion...
MS should have blown away Sony at TGS, but they got knocked out. This just shows that now Sony has entered the ring and is begginging to pummel MS once again. Just 2 games for MS, thats just pathetic. 360 has been out for about a year now, and they are getting their butts kicked by LAUNCH titles of the PS3. Damn, its really over folks, its really over for MS. PLAY B3YOND
Can we put aside the fanboyism for a second? I understand this was written by the PS3 editor, but I'm not sure that is any excuse. Can anyone on this site, honestly, from the bottom of their hearts say that Virtua Tennis looks better than GOW? I know half the people on here hate the 360, but to say that the tennis game has graphics that outshine GOW is insane.
I don't know if they considered Gears of War for this, it wasn't playable on the show floor because of someone said it was too violent for public viewing. Anyways, why can't a tennis game have great graphics? I've only seen two Gears of War videos because most of the stuff has been behind closed doors. The graphics are really good but its not like its the best looking game ever, and it if it was considered for this then it probably got looked over because it wasn't in 1080p while a lot of the competition was.
the videos i have seen from gow were by far not impressive. its very likely that other games have better graphics. but i think they didnt consider gow. on the other hand there are many games for me with far better graphics.
...may actually be the best looking game ever. Name one that looks better, that is out or coming out by the end of the year. The only game that I have seen that has better graphics is Crysis.
Its totally bias and i know you cant see it because your blind. I thought you only had 3 bubbles. Do you keep changing your name? adding letters?
You say stuff to me like ban his ip address, but all in all you are no better you are attacking Sony fanboys for there say, so that makes you a MS fanboy, your opinion is now worthless just like THE MART!
He's got a point though. Jin's talking out of his @ss about the ps3 giving a knock out blow (or w/e) when its not even out. It would have even been better to say the ps2 than the ps3.
because most of them were PS3 games, 2 Xbox 360 games and i like both of them, Lost Planet and DOAX2, but really, VT3 is crap. Top Spin is a beeter tennis game, and plus i dont even like tennis, so reaqlly i dont know how it got on that list. But a pretty fair, not great list. Some other titles like ohh say Gears of War, and maybe White Knight. But hey its a PS3 website, so obv. the favor goes in for PS3.
I agree completely with hyperbear and zypher. Just as they said, this was written by the playstation editor for gamepro so of course there is going to be a bias especially when lost odyssey and Gears of War wasnt even on the list.
true that! Where the hell did lost odyssey go. All i heard about that game was how amazing it looked in motion.
ten of 360's hot titles are exclusives, while 6 of the PS3's hot titles are exclusives. not bad for either really, especially considering that for the PS3 these are launch titles. but still, this is just another site's opinion.
please this list is a joke ! smackdown is on 3. hahhaaa. i think this list is far more biased lol. who at tgs choosed smackdown or gow ??? this is a totally joke list.
This isn't a vote by industry professionals. This is based off of the ign gs ranks. I'm pretty sure thats based off of how many times they game has been searched for on their site. Its definitely not a vote by people in the industry from TGS.
"Before arriving at TGS, we would have given the Xbox 360 the nod in terms of the next-generation hardware battle. Sony has made a series of blunders in the last six months, and from what we saw and heard about prior to the show, developers were having a lot of trouble developing for the PS3 hardware compared to the ease of PC-like Xbox 360 programming. Plus, side by side, 360 and PS3 games looked almost indistinguishable in terms of graphics. But at TGS and the following special hands-on media event at Sony Studios in Tokyo, we were swayed in the Sony's direction. Some of the PS3 launch-games on display were simply breathtaking -- definitely the most advanced graphics ever displayed on a console system." "And, to our complete surprise, Ridge Racer 7 was playing in full 1080p definition at an astonishing 60 frames per second"
