PS4's Deep Down: Debut Gameplay Vs Revealed Gameplay Comparison - Not Quite As Good?

PS4 Exclusive Deep Down blew everyone's socks off with its Debut Gameplay, but with the recent reveal of more Gameplay we feel the new gameplay doesn't quite match. Heres the comparison.

Didn't we know the original, as you put it gameplay, video was a CGI video. I didn't think it was gameplay as it was never announced as such. It was just a typical CGI trailer (I dislike how it is such a common practice. AC series does it all the time)

codelyoko3401d ago

Nah man it was Gameplay, they have the in game HUD and all. + i believe it was mentioned somewhere.

GameNameFame3401d ago

So i dont know where this article is coming from.

Literally non hardcore gaming media blew up.

It even made top list on reddit which never really cares about graphics.

Forbes going nuts. and news making gifs.

black0o3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

it's more like comparing real-time cute scene to a gameply (not cgi)
take a look at ND games all cute scene are in game-engine not CGI the deep down debut was a cute scene running in game engine and the fire effect is almost the same BTW

bottom line whom ever write this has no clue maybe next time u can compare between agni's philosophy demo and Final fantasy XV

GameNameFame3401d ago

^^ Agree 100 percent.

Running in game cut scene real time. Is not same as CGI.

If you want real deceit, look at X1 BF4 at E3. Or Ryse at E3. Every real game play seen was never good as the E3 gameplay.

IcicleTrepan3401d ago

So in regular gameplay are we going to have shields that melt from fire?

Eonjay3401d ago

Well, being as though the recent gameplay has the smoothest physics and best graphics of any console game (ever) I don't think anyone will be complaining.

UltimateMaster3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Latest Gameplay had amazing graphics.

Lol, if you want to laugh, just look at the article, because it IS the same game play footage, it's just the screen shot's resolution is not quite on par, but that's it.
Here, look:
Nah, if you REALLY want this kind of Article, compare the original Ryse E3 demo VS latest gameplay footage.

The E3 one looked very much next-gen high end graphics, but the new one just looks current gen, like a glorified Wii U game in comparison.


Latest Trailer:
Note at the bottom of the screen: "Not actual gameplay" on the first intro.

colonel1793401d ago

It was target gameplay, not actual gameplay. Just because it has the HUD doesn't mean it's actual gameplay.

BitbyDeath3401d ago

Game has 4 player splitscreen and is doing 1080P+60FPS all while looking simply amazing.

What more could you possibly want?

CommonSense3401d ago

Reddit doesn't care about graphics? what? I'm on Reddit...i care about graphics.

FlunkinMonkey3401d ago

So you 'believe it was mentioned somewhere' that it was gameplay after doing a 'gameplay comparison' with no sources about that in your article? That's some serious journalism there, great in-depth research (NOT).

It's a target render with a serious amount of time left in production, this game will look astonishing on release.

loulou3401d ago

grfx look great, gameplay not so much.

i wanna see alot more.

FamilyGuy3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Black0o and GameNameFsme have it right

The original debut trailer was all "IN-ENGINE", running on "Real PS4 hardware"
The models used were definitely higher in polygons but none of it was CGI. It was a situation similar to the cut-scenes in Uncharted.

The actual in-game footage still look amazing, the link they posted still doesn't do it justice.
Watch the 720p 60fps gamersyde videos to see how good it really looks. They aren't very exciting like the dragon gameplay demo but they do a great job showing off how amazing the lighting and dungeon really look, how smooth the character animations are and how accurate the hit detection is.

Bimkoblerutso3400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

Edit: I can't even joke about that. The game still looks incredible.

ShinMaster3400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

Why compare with a cinematic announcement trailer and then ask Sony "what's up" when it's Capcom who is developing the game?

And the author completely cherry picked those last pics. We've all seen better screens and from the latest gameplay footage.

Dee_913400d ago

wait,so the gameplay doesn't look as good as the trailer because the camera isn't cinematic or because the graphics got a downgrade?
If its the former,I don't see the issue with that..If its the latter I will have to disagree..

Ezz20133401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

the GFX from the latest build looked very very Next gen to me

also this article didn't show side by side
any downgrade at real proof at all
i really couldn't tell what different between the debut trailer and this gameplay video

EDIT: @codelyoko
ok where is the proof that it doesn't as good?!
there is no side by side here to back him up
i'm not saying there isn't downgrade nor i'm saying there is
just need solid facts not just an opinion

codelyoko3401d ago

No one is saying it doesnt look Next Gen :P what it says is that it doesnt look as good as the debut game play,

Yo Mama3401d ago

Wow!!!!!!! Those GIFS look amazing. If Deep Down wasn't on my radar already, it sure is now.

speed3893401d ago

it looks amazing, i dont know how anyone can argue it... its easily one of the best looking new games coming out

Beastforlifenoob3401d ago

The game's graphics have quickly devaluated and I now serioisly belive battlefield4/killzone SF/Driveclub/Watch_dogs/Ass4 smash it into bits.

Twignberries3401d ago

@iamnsuperman actually it was stated by the developer, and on the trailer if I'm not mistaken, that it was all in-engine. The later gameplay vids that were revealed have the exact same graphics anyway, the only difference being that the original "cg" trailer as you called it, had more cinematic animations and camera work

trancefreak3401d ago

This website has more sponsor shipped ads than actual article depth, story, quality.

It's come to this blogisphered world we live in; were people can write, publish, toss some screen grabs of high res production shots vs half arsed pixelated, crappy off screen grabs from some gaming convention. This is to conjure some story stating teh graphics are worse than that were promised.

Lets wait and see until the dam games start rolling out. Until then, they are not finalized unless stated otherwise.

Well that's how I feel about it.

andrewsqual3401d ago

And the actual gameplay is 60fps too.

ape0073400d ago

that's why it's downgraded, if ps4 and X1 were 100$ more expensive, it would make gfx like PC, like the first two watch dogs gameplay vids and BF4 PC Gameplay

damn straight

Orionsangel3401d ago

Apparently you haven't seen this?

Yes, it's game play and the first next gen console game to look like true next gen. The first next gen game you can say that 360 and PS3 could not do it.

Mkai283401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

This site captures videos well at 1080p at 60fps. Thumbs up, game looks amazing at 60fps..
A little off topic

LetoAtreides823401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Plenty of PS4 games that can't be done on the PS3 unless you water down the graphics and particle effects. Killzone, Watch_Dogs, and Resogun for example.

Blaze9293401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

lol, so now everyone just "knew" the debut trailer was a target render?

People have been saying this about Deep Down for weeks yet it was rebutted rebutted and rebutted some more.

People were fools to really believe this - free to play - game would look like this:

But...hey. Nothing better than sitting back and watching with a smile at the end.

imt5583401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Blaze, yes is a F2P game. But when was announced that it will be a F2P game? A month ago, right. Off course many believed that graphics in first demo will be in final game until F2P announcement.

Tell me, what is the release date of the game? Some rumour said that the release date is somewhere in late 2014.

This game look pretty good for a F2P game and for a really early stage of development.

Ezz20133400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

before you sit back and smile
point what in the latest Gameplay don't look the same as Debut trailer
because this article fail to do soo
it was nothing but opinions with no solid facts nor side by side
so tell those "fool" people why it's not as good ?!
in full detail with facts plz
also while at it tell all those "fool" people what's wrong with the latest gameplay gfx as well ?!
since everyone saw the latest build said it was jaw dropping and said it's one of the very best looking next gen titles
and it's 1080p /60fps as well

i will wait...

JackISbacK3401d ago

for your kind in formation ac never youse to do that this deep dow looks like shit and ac is a big hit ,you fucking compaering this lame gameplay with ac franchise fuck you.

Shuyin3400d ago

I think you hit your head if you say AC looks better than DD.
P.S: AC turned shit after 2. 3 was a HUGE let down for not only me but alot of people.

ramiuk13401d ago

i always thought the first video was in game engine but not a cgi video.
the demo looked amazing from other day .
he must be a xbot and wants to defend Ryse,which was faked

BallsEye3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Blind fanboys were still insisting it was real gameplay and even made comparisons to Ryse. How sad. -.-... this is exactly what happened with kz2 and blind fanboys get fooled once more, always forgiving.

Ezz20133401d ago

looking at the latest bulid
it still look far better than ryse as well and in 1080p with 60fps

and i dare you to point me to what different between that Debut trailer and THIS latest build gameplay with SIDE BY SIDE too
because this article didn't
he simply saying his opinion and didn't back it up
every one who saw the gameplay is saying how the gfx are beyond incredible

as for KZ2 comment
E3 build (left) vs final build (right)
any one who have eyes can see how much better the final build look than E3 trailer

what else ?

DigitalRaptor3400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

The fact remains is that it IS in-engine, tech-demo gameplay, not CG. The original trailer contains gameplay artifacts and this was before anyone could have guessed it was an online game. So NO- no one's blind for being reasonable, and no-one's blinder than those thinking the latest Deep Down footage we've seen looks worse than Ryse.

Ryse only looks impressive when things are slowed down, control is taken away and you see the animations close-up. In fact, if Ryse looks so much better than Deep Down, how does that make the original trailer shown a graphical impossibility, when it's running on more powerful hardware?

And nope, this is nothing like Killzone 2 situation at all.

Hicken3400d ago

Nobody claimed it was gameplay. In-engine? Yes.

But NOT gameplay. Not that original trailer.

Keep trying, blind fanboy.

BallsEye3400d ago


Or maybe it is not more powerful machine? Recently there were articles about ps4 having R290 gpu inside...which is quite funny when console is only using 100wats while XO use more double of that when really stressed. MS still didnt come out with their GPU specs so I'll hold my judgement.

DigitalRaptor3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

Well BallsEye. Of course you will hold your judgement, cause you have nothing else working in your favour and this entire coming generation will be spelling it out to you a day at a time. It's delusion here on out for you guys.

The "bu-bu-bu but wait until...." argument has already disintegrated since it's been used by you guys so much, with nothing to show for it.

AndrewLB3401d ago

The trailer looks closer to a combination of CGI and real actors. Then to completely deceive the viewer, they throw in a few seconds with the weapon selection HUD. Those few seconds were clearly showing gameplay which looks far better than the latest gameplay videos out there.

please, take off the blinders and just accept the fact that you got duped.

iamnsuperman3401d ago

"please, take off the blinders and just accept the fact that you got duped."

I clearly wasn't duped as I thought it was CGI. Some of the comment here are telling me it is in game engine (which I might have gotten wrong) but when I first say this I thought CGI because no-one said gameplay. So I could have I been duped (unless you are talking about me being duped into thinking it was CGI)

BallsEye3401d ago

Fanboys will reject the truth...just like with killzone 2 demo back in the day.

3400d ago
Irishguy953400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

The hypocrites on this site just don't like to admit Sony mislead people too. It took GG 3 years, that's right, finally say the Killzone 2 reveal was a target render.

This reminds me of the FFXV reveal trailer. No one seems to know that was a target render and not actual gameplay trailer.

avengers19783400d ago

I guess its a good thing they still have LOTS of time to work on the game then, geeze it's like it's coming out next week not next year, I'm sure when it releases it will look amazing

Convas3400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

I can't believe what I'm reading from some of you folk in here.


Those articles are full of them. People did breakdowns and all kinds of mental gymnastics to confirm it was running on PS4 hardware.

And then, to make matters even worst, the used the February footage in that Ryse Vs Deep Down comparison.

So no. "We" didn't know the original was a "CGI" trailer. It was touted as the real deal.

Yep3400d ago

Lmao. All of a sudden the original was CGI when before all the fanboys were hyping it up as if it was actual gameplay.

Thatguy-3103401d ago

The gameplay looks next gen. I randomly came across the multiplayer gameplay and was honestly amazed how it looked. It's honestly on my radar from now on.

Beastforlifenoob3401d ago

Only thing is its freemium and that can either be good or horrible.

Silly gameAr3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Thank you for the comparision gaming website that's here one weekend and gone the next. I like how you compare a CGI video to actual gameplay. Real quality work there.

sorane3401d ago

Why would you think it's cgi when Capcom themselves said it was running on PC?

codelyoko3401d ago

It wasn't CGI :) it was confirmed in-engine footage. Notice the HUD in the debut trailer.

Silly gameAr3401d ago

Disagrees aren't going to change the fact that it was a CGI trailer.

sorane3400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

You're really in denial aren't you. No matter how many times you say it was CGI won't change the fact that it was realtime on PC.

Silly gameAr3400d ago (Edited 3400d ago )

No, I'm not in denial, just know the difference.

sorane3400d ago

Apparently you don't since you still think it was CGI when it wasn't.

Abriael3401d ago

So now we're comparing what was basically a tech demo, calling it "gameplay" because it had a hud for show purposes, with actual gameplay.

Yeah, I see how this comment section is gonna become fun.

Kayant3401d ago

I still can't believe people thought that was actually gameplay. No where did it say it was running in-engine or was gameplay. Like you said it was a tech demo.

AndrewLB3401d ago

It had a HUD bozo! When there is a HUD, they're supposed to show actual gameplay. Having a HUD over CGI is about as deceiving as you can get.

ADodoBird3401d ago

When you show an HUD and pretend its actual gameplay, then you cant get away with calling it a Tech Demo. If it was a Target Render they should have said so. -...-
