looking better and better..

P0werVR3427d ago

Yes sir!

I feel this is going to be the generation where gaming is going to "comeback".

From my opinion, this gen was kinda of missing something. Which is why I was mostly on steam(PC).

But boy Deep Down looks AWSOME!

We're all gamers, just with different tastes.

Just like a Cubs fan or a Lions fan.


NatureOfLogic3427d ago

I have to agree with the guys below. This is not impressive at all. Looks like a PS3 game. You could even argue that Demon's Souls looks better than this.

Maddens Raiders3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

Looking fantastic. More than ever, Sony seems hellbent on having the best looking games on its machine this gen. Can not wait.

NatureOfLogic3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

I'm looking forward to playing this and I hope It's fun, but I'm disappointed with these visuals. Hopefully the final game will look so much better.

WarThunder3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

These pics are blurry and small doesn't show of much of the game's details

These ones are also blurry... but the game looks great! The lighting is spot on! This game has the best fire effect ever seen in a game



BallsEye3427d ago


This looks low res (the jaggies) and extremely blurry (look the textures)...Im sure the game will be great but wtf guys are you completely blind? amazing real time gameplay from Ryse for example get bitched for "last gen graphics" and this gets praised? Woah...

NewMonday3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

people need to keep it real with this game, as far as graphics it is not setting standards, it is just OK for the next gen first wave, but this should be a game with solid gameplay and that is what matters most

FamilyGuy3427d ago

You guys can debate the low res picture quality and even the textures but the fire is undeniable. The dragon also looks good even in the pre-tgs game play.

Just one more day to see more in depth information and hopefully direct feed game play in HD.

ajkula3427d ago

@1.1.5 it's playstation exclusive, wont release on video tape...

MWong3427d ago

@ WarThunder
Those pics remind me of Dragon's Dogma. If CapComgave this game DD's combat system and a longer storyline, Deep Down will be amazing.

So far Deep Down is shaping up to be a beautiful experience on the PS4. I can't wait to see new in-game footage from TGS.

mewhy323427d ago

This game is going to be amazing. I am so excited about this exclusive. You see what can happen when the dev isn't held back by the lowest common denominator? Just think of how good this game looks now and what the devs will be able to do next and next and next with exclusive software for the mighty PS4. Wow amazing.

Downserj3427d ago

I will not be getting a PS4 right away. But this would definitely be the game to get me to buy one after it releases.

There are no other exclusives on PS4 that are drawing my interest besides this one right now. Well besides the F2P MMO stuff maybe.

13 dislike ??? oh boy some people dont want a comeback because they are Xbone fanboys and they enjoy FPS and GEARS of War

The_Con-Sept3427d ago

Since its reveal I was intrigued by this game. But every bit of gameplay that I have seen now has me wanting this game more and more. Looks like destiny and deep down are going to be my main two games for a while.

mewhy323427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

Wow. This game just looks better and better. Exclusive for the PS4 doesn't have to worry about being held back by the lowest common denominator Regis. That means that the dev can take full advantage of the PS4's Superior hardware and not have to try and cope with the bones weakness.

ChrisW3426d ago (Edited 3426d ago )

The real reactions and comments are at the bottom of the page posting the screenshots.

Of course those people would be called a troll in a heart beat if they posted the same comments here.

Not nearly as good as that CGI people claimed to be gameplay. Still probably will be awesome game. Loved Dragons Dogma. Hope it's something similar.

FamilyGuy3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

It was never CGI, it was running on target hardware based on the PS4s power, aka a PC.

It was not some video (CGI = video) and this was proven by the imperfections that were visible back then. That video was thoroughly inspected right after it came out. CGI doesn't have jaggies, clipping of textures etc. The imperfections proved it wasn't a video.

It definitely wasn't CGI.

Most likely just higher polygon models, probably a couple million used for the dragon and each character.

Here's the chunky guy they used for motion capture commenting about the game and the experience. He was the one that was complaining at the campfire scene.

Read the linked comment

LOL, here he is talking again in the comments section but this time he specifically states "The game’s realism is because it is not CGI, but rather a very accurate computerization of we actors being filmed actually going through our interactive dialog scenes in a motion catpture studio. Sword play, explosions, magic, insults, back-stabbing, envy, hate, … all that."

ceed9113427d ago

Yeah this isn't nearly as good looking as that reveal trailer they showed. I loved Dragon Dogma's as well, but as its Capcom I never get too excited.

Evilsnuggle3427d ago

First deep down trailer was not cgi it's running on game engine . also it was broken down on in the depths on gt here a link sounds like a butt hurt X girl .

NoLongerHereCBA3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

I agree with you ballsEye. These screenshots look quite nice, but they don't come close to the reveal trailer that was being shown. Which make me believe that that wasn't running in real-time.

The difference in quality is just too big.

@Evilsnuggle, in-engine and real-time is a very big difference.

black0o3427d ago

u need to learn the def between in real time engine CS and a CGI, ND uses RTE in UC, TLOU and doesn't includes any type of CGI that's why they were able to get smooth transition between gameply and CS which delivered the best cinematic experience in games ever made

so I great to know what kinda of engines can the ps4 run

I'm annoyed by these low-res shots so I'm linking the better quality version plus others below.
Dualshockers fumbled big time on this one.

The REAL brand new shots that were released today are linked here.

Here's some others you guys might have missed too, all of which are better than the ones shown on dualshockers in this article.

black0o3427d ago

let them dance .. few hours from now and the gameplay steam will shu them just like with Driveclub back at e3 ""looks so bad bla bla bla.."" and now not a word of those has been heard

Blaze9293427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

This is the game people were just saying is miles ahead of Ryse? Trippin

SquillieDeeWilliams3427d ago

I was about to say the exact same thing. This looks decent, but does NOT look as good as Ryse.

Bobby Kotex3427d ago

There's nothing special about these screens at all, and I'm a huge PS3/PS4 fan. Looks like Demons Souls.

Ps4Console3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

The leap in Graphics is not going to be huge don't forget but they'll have more polygons to shift around yes & more on screen but it's not a huge leap forward like a Nvidia Titan card you can forget that .

AbortMission3426d ago

26 butthurt drones can't handle the epicness of Deep Down Lol

SonyPS3603426d ago (Edited 3426d ago )

It looks good but not the graphical leap that the reveal trailer implied. They obviously faked that first trailer by putting a little HUD icon in the corner of a pre-rendered cinematic.

It's weird, but so far for next-gen; Ryse still has the best looking actual gameplay footage, graphically at least.

It's still early days though. There's some other beautiful looking games on the Ps4 that we need to see gameplay footage of.

I'm just annoyed at the double standard shown by the community here. No Ps4 exclusive has been criticised for faking gameplay visuals, yet there's been a huge song & dance made about Ryse screenshots looking different, despite actual gameplay footage being available.

Looks very good -- if not beautiful! The first one is my favorite.

Pancit_Canton3427d ago

Looks almost like an Avatar CGI.

Salooh3427d ago

FF15 yes but this no even if you compare it to the reveal trailer that looked awesome. These are first year games. So i don't expect a huge step like that until 2 or 3 years. Last years are always the best but by the time we reach them i for one will be already bored of the ps4.

SonyPS3603426d ago (Edited 3426d ago )

Okay, let's roll it back a bit. You're getting a bit over excited; even by console fanboy standards.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3427d ago


Those screens aren't impressive.

Abriael3427d ago

Keep telling yourself that mate :D

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

Sorry Buddy. I'm extremely excited for this game, and I'm sure the game itself looks great. But those screens a fugly.

What is so impressive about them? It's 720p and the angles are off. They're blurry. In the one with the monster in it you can't even make out any detail in the guys armor because he's in a shadow. And what the heck is going on in the third one? I don't even know what that is.

Abriael3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

you are either very liberal in the use of hyperbole or your idea of "fugly" is more than a little weird.

The polycount is visibly extremely high, and the textures are stunning.

Oh, and the fact that the screenshots are 1280 x 720 doesn't necessarily determine the final resolution of the game.

Edit: actually the screenshots are 960x540, so yeah, they say absolutely nothing of the final resolution of the game. As a matter of fact, they just seem to be 1080p halved in size.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3427d ago

Sorry I'm not having it. I'm a playstation only gamer so I'm not being a fanboy. And when I first saw the Deep Down trailer at the 2/20 event it look like the most beautiful game next gen had to offer. But these screens make it look like Dark Souls. Those screens do not do the game justice, they're blurry and while it might have a high poly count the low resolution makes the textures look bad. And aliased. Those screens... are not impressive.

_QQ_3427d ago

He is right, these particular screenshots don't show off much.

starchild3427d ago

The first shot looks great. The armored knight looks amazing. But the second shot isn't so impressive. The ground textures at the bottom of the shot look kind of low-res and flat.

bujasem_893427d ago

why are you defending the screens like they are your children?? The game is awesome I cannot wait to own it, and the PS4! but the screens them selves are horrid! @Abriael

ABeastNamedTariq3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

I'm pretty sure those are off-screen screenshots (correct me if I'm wrong). They look great to me.


Oops, I'm dumb. I was thinking about the other three released screenshots. I shouldn't comment when I'm tired. Sorry!

Abriael3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

They're not.

1nsomniac3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

I have to agree, the first image is clearly rendered & the other 2 as he quite rightly says are not impressive at all.

There is no detail to see in the 2nd picture infact the only good texturing is on the far wall. The floor & monster textures are very poor & blurry - Clearly not a visibly 'extremely' high polygon count! (I think your getting mixed up with your renders) aswell the poor solid volumetric block lighting effect coming from the left of the screen.

The 3rd image although you can tell in motion it would probably look great, in picture form its nothing new & showing no new particle effects or anything really & again showing very poor texturing not even any bump mapping what so ever.

..My guess is that these are from very, very early code & that there really is such a thing as blind fanboyism because a lot of people are seeing things that just arnt there!

MasterCornholio3427d ago

"..My guess is that these are from very, very early code"

Yeah this reminds me of peoples reactions when they saw DriveClub at E3. I'm pretty sure that the final product will look much better than this.

BlackTar1873427d ago

I agree these shots arn't overly impressive. But this game is and as a gamer who doesn't reall y care that much about graphics but more the experience. I am just as hyped as i ever was. Love these type of Dark souls games. Need a lot more MORE MORE MORE.

need tough every movement and attack counts and could get you killed games. Love it.

SonyPS3603426d ago

I'm glad it's not just me. These don't look like a big leap to me at all. They look more like the best that can be done with current gen consoles.

I'm dissappointed.

BlackTar1873426d ago

People are too sensitive.
