1080p at 60fps - SWEET

"Xbox's Director of the Game Technology Group, Scott Henson, had his doubts about Sony's claim that PS3 games will feature 'full HD' (1080p resolution): "I think 1080p, just to address that directly, will be basically impossible. I think if you talk to any developer they will tell you that they will not have a performing game at 1080p."

Haha how even dare this dudes to make a PS3 360 comparsion. It appears they don't have any clue about the PS3 hardware.

Donkey Slayer6207d ago

Half the time they don't have a clue about their own product. Just read one many quotes from Peter Moore.

PS3 Ultimate6207d ago

In that article about the NBA game for PS3. The guy said the game was running at 1080p and at 60FPS! Things are shaping up good!

Voodoochild6207d ago

This game looks sweet. I don't like sports games that much, but I have to admit that this game looks dang sweet. I don't know about the 60fps statement, but it does seem to be running pretty smooth to me.

NBA 07 Review

It can be difficult to measure the worth of a ported title to a newer, more powerful console. Inevitably, people will make comparisons to the previous version, gauging if the transition to the new system is any better (or different) than the original game or if any glitches or bugs have been fixed between versions. Most importantly, fans will want to know if they're missing anything by not buying the game again. In Sony's case, their first party basketball title, NBA 07 came out less than two months ago on the PS2 and PSP, and it's helping to lead the charge onto the basketball court for the PS3. But is this version of Sony's basketball title any better now that it's made the leap into the next generation, or should this game be benched for poor play?

Better than I thought it would be. The online features are definitely innovative, but I don't the gameplay has improved enough to warrant a purchase. Maybe next years will be even more improved.

andy capps6167d ago

Honestly, the game sounded pretty boring until I got to the part where they'll be adding 5 new scenarios a week based on some signature plays during the week in NBA games. That is interesting, and may actually have me renting a sports title. I'm still not much for the plastic looking characters in next-gen video games.

Grown Folks Talk6167d ago

hope the final version plays better than the demo.

CAPS LOCK6202d ago

lol both console beat the 360's launch by far. there are alot of exclusives launching with each console. i think i would get the ps3 with resistance, motorstrom, gthd, full auto2 and maybe fear.

for the wii i would get zelda, red steel and excite truck.

SjaakHaas6202d ago

Wow you just named half of the exclusives on the PS3! is het niet geweldig?

Daytona6201d ago

Lets see the ps3 has been in development just as long as the 360 yet it takes until now release and you wanna brag? What an friggin fool u r.

That's not somehing to brad about, it's like the ps3 is the slower, mildly retarded brother, so yeah be happy for that I guess.

D R Fz6202d ago

both ps3 and wii have a good line-up which we can all agree is a good thing for us gamers. And with gears of war coming out and the ps3 and wii launching in Nov., i might have to drop out of nyu and forget the whole medicine thing. The Gift and Curse of the next-gen.

kewlkat0076202d ago

There is nothing in the PS3's lineup that screams come buy. As far as the Wii's Zelda, You know your getting a great game after months of delays.

On the PS3 hmm..( Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom , Mobile Suit Gundam: Target In Sight,) I would wanna play. All the other games are either mediocure or will be on the 360.

So as of right now I don't see why I would pay $600+ for the PS3. No anticipation with any of these games besides COD3, Rainbow Six: Vegas. I'm not too exctited for all the other titles form the Wii cause I'm not sure how the contoller will play out. I just wanna play zelda for now.

D R Fz6202d ago

And you do know that both verions will have very similar graphics, right? Have you even played Zelda for wii yet? If not, how do you personally know that it is great game? Have you played any of the games coming out for the ps3? If not, how do you know that they are mediocre? Putting fanboyism aside for a second, you must agree that do not know anything about how any ps3 or wii title is going to pleasure us until we play the title on the conosole.

ChaosKnight6202d ago

Those are pretty good lineups, the only thing for the ps3 that may hurt it is the fact there is only 7 of those games that are exclusives. Also i heard Ninja Gaiden is coming out early next year, and Fight night is in December now.

But really they're pretty good

blackmagic6202d ago (Edited 6202d ago )

Hmmm... as much as I'd like to believe in these lists, I know there will be titles pushed. Just like for the 360, when we get within about 2-3 weeks several titles will be delayed.

Heck, Fight Night Round 3 was already delayed from Nov.17 until Dec.12 and it's a port!

btw, shouldn't this be in the ps3 section?
