Check out a screenshot comparison between Sleeping Dogs old and Definitive Edition.
something looks off on the new version. i prefer the one on the left more. anyone know whcih version is on left and right?
The one on the Right is the Definitive Edition.
i know the definitive version is on the roght. just used the wrong words. was wondering which platforms they were comparing with. pc and pc? the one on left has less effects, but it just looks better.
I have to agree with HK. I also thought the one on the left looked better. o_O
It's just a different angle and because of that different lighting. The textures are definitely better on the right one
Seems like this is just a texture upgrade.
Ok lets say 30 bucks is just right for this 'Definitive' Edition considering the amount of work put into it..
Something's wrong there. I also think the one on the left looks better in most parts. I got this game free with PS+. It's a good game but not sure it's worth the "Definitive" treatment.
They are wasting money releasing a definitive version. I don't get it but hey it's their money to burn so whatever. The game was cool but it's definitely not worth a rehash.
except they are not wasting money , they are literally porting the pc version +dlc , that's easy for them . Between that and triad wars it's obvious they are squeezing and milking further cash , from a game they once said didnt make enough money
I think it has something to do with the lighting, I think they took out most of the bloom and any other lighting effects. It just looks off like you said, apart from the definitive version having higher textures here and there, the lighting is what made the game looks alive, now it looks to be gone.
Looks like the pc version I've played... @ cjducncan... They are not wasting money with this. It's little effort to port from the pc version since the architecture is similar. But the REAL BENEFIT of these definitive editions is the devs can get a grip on the hardware so when they do make a game from the ground up they will know the hardware better versus learning while making games so we don't get semi crappy games until they are 2 or 3 games into the gen..
Texture are sharper but those lines around the arm and hands on the definitive version are horrible...the softer old version looks better overall.
I actually like how the left softens up the lighting.
i'm pretty sure that's the blurry textures...
Yeah, it looks weird on the HD version. Guess the AA/blurriness of the old makes it look more "convincing", at least on this particular comparison.
not sure wich console was on the left but the one on the right certainly looks better,just look at the textures on the meat cleaver itself,less blurryness everywhere
At the bottom of the pictures there is an "SD" and "HD". There is also a SLIDER on the picture starting at the left edge of the picture. The "HD" picture has more definition around the collar and sharper pattern on the shirt and cleaver. If you never played the game it would be the one to obtain if you could. However, it certainly isn't worth more of your money even if you receive all the DLC.
sorry, wrong use of words, i wanted to know what platform they chose for old and definitive version. its pretty obvious especially with the buttons you press at the bottom, even though it shouldnt be labelled as sd. doesnt the extra detail make the game look worse to you? maybe that was just this picture. im not getting game since its only 30fps on consoles.
Are some of you absolutely blind? How can you not tell which the next gen version is? The textures alone give it away completely. Hmm...one has blurry textures and the other is far sharper. I wonder which is next gen! Derpaderpaderp!!!!
If you zoom in, you'll immediately be able to tell the one on the right is the definitive edition. It looks sharper and texturing on the hair net and collar are more detailed.
its easy to spot the definitive version. just wondering whatt hey did to mess it up so much. left is less superior in graphics but looks a lot nicer.
"Definitive Edition" 30 fps lel
Oh look, someone is bringing up FPS again. Because we don't see this in every article...
if you want to play this game buy the available verions dont spend money your (maybe) hard earn cash on this money grab
Is this game any good? Ive never played it and Im wondering if the Definitive Edition would be worth the extra cheddar.
Its a highly enjoyable game. No gta but holds its own, specially in d kungfu mechanics
Kung fu you say? Now I am very intrigued. I still dont see a massive difference in the Def Ed of Sleeping Dogs, so Im not sure if I should pony up the extra cash.
SteamPowered: Pick up the game if you never play it. I can guarantee that you won't regret it. Like spidermann said "it's no gta but it holds its own". Def edition comes with all the DLC.
It's very good. I wasn't convinced at firs but after I played it I got hooked. I enjoyed it more than GTAIV, that's for sure.
I'd wait till it's about 20 bucks.
The definitive edition looks more clear and sharp but also looks like it has a tint of yellow in the colour.
That fact that some people couldn't tell one from the other is a problem. Either they did such a good job on last gen with the graphics or they did a poor job with the current gen version.
blech ... crossing this one off the list
pork bun is love...pork bun is life
suddenly I feel like ordering chinese for dinner..think I will actually!
"You look like you need a pork bun!"
Sleeping dogs maybe a pretty game, but besides that and good combat mechanics this game is a mess imo. Driving and on-foot mechanics were such a moodkiller. Will definately pass.
Great game, but this looks like just a pc port to current gen consoles. Nothing major, just a last $$$ haul and possibly making sure interest is there for a sequel.
I got the PC version with all the DLC in the steam sale for like £6.00, too me that was the definitive value edition.
Maybe one day we will get awesome sales like steam .
The original had some of the ugliest graphics I've ever seen in 2012 game. This game was better than GTA (except for Vice City) but this is a pointless port. Stop supporting this trend. Reward originality instead.
im glad i mainly game on pc. an extra $30 for a pc port.
Maybe my memory of it is wrong, but the definitive version only looks just as good as GTAV on last gen :/
I Believe that character models are not really getting too much attention in this game more the environment and cars as well as how smoothly the game is played. Overall the gameplay is pretty good and was a surprise for me. PS+ subscribers got this for free (or super cheap cant remember it was a while ago). Anyways was so worth it on the PS3 version I got the PC version on steam on a really good deal and have no regrets yet for the purchase. As long as new console owners are getting all the DLC like the net has been saying I say this is a good deal..... Not great ...... Good deal for those of us gamers who enjoyed already on last gen consoles and still play from time to time. There are a lot of gamers who were on the fence last gen that didn't play Sleeping Dogs..... I say go ahead and pick it up this gen and play it ...... I believe this game will surprise you......
bought this game during a steam sale. It sucks. i was bummed about how low budget it felt.
I got it from + I thought It was great But Still I won't buy it again
I will get this because I didn't play the original version , think I have it from ps+ though. But I will wait until its cheap , which inevitably it will be , Maybe Black Friday .
Ok so Who will buy this game? I know I won't.
this game is trash. they have balls trying to release this game a month before GTAV which is a way superior game and makes Sleeping Dogs look like a PS2 game. that goes for the Saints Row 4 next gen rehash as well. i hope this game flops. publishers need to realise just because its a remaster doesn't mean people will buy it and you can look at Metro redux remaster's sales as proof.
Is the left image with or without HD texture pack (considering it actually is PC version screenshot)?
looks the same just higher res. If they can hit 60 fps that might make it a buy.
the wall details and face details is better on old gen Oo , even the eyes in the older gen is better WTF
Agreed, I think SE is missing the point of remastering a game. Not so much upgrading resolution, textures, and lighting. More like sell it again, make more money. Not impressed...
Yawn.... Already enjoyed this with all the bells and whistles on the PC...
Can someone tell me what sleeping dogs is all about? Ive only heard the name.
The upgrade looks minor to me. Doesn't seem like the getting the next-gen version will be worth it. Are they adding more content to the game?
This is ridiculous charging full price for a game that been out almost 2 years? Gaming has been water down greatly, boring as hell nothing new same old stuff with slightly better graphics, i'm really disappointed, i was not expecting this. Too many Definitive Edition games coming out, no one is willing to take chances, make a totally new experiences, but all we get is recycle bull crap over and over and over,i can honestly say there's nothing to play and my interested has drop significantly.
Ps4 = rubbish Xbone = rubbish P.c = rubbish Game boy color = way forward
Not worth buying again. Now...1080p, added effects/advanced textures, all DLC, extra modes, and 60fps, well...then we could talk. Because this isn't a classic like RE4 or TLoU, you can't just give "a little bit" and say "can you guys give us $50 too?!" Not this guy... :-/
The lady's boobs on the right image is kinda blocky
Metal Gear Solid 4, that derserves a remaster Godammit.
Honestly not much of a difference. At all.
There might be fans who would dev double dip. I'm just not one of them.
but no where does it say is this the pc vs definitive or is it the PS3/360 Version, because I'm pretty sure when it was released on PC the graphics and even characters were over hauled and made to look so much better
Dont care if it looks basically the same. Awesome, extremely underrated game. Just happy to play it again.
The clothes and objects look better, but the face looks worse
