Naughty God's man I tell you some of the best in the industry

breakpad1253d ago (Edited 1253d ago )

they were nt just talented ..they were also not bored (like many lazy others) to work on PS3 which was a beast ... Kojima,FromSoft and Naughty Dog made their own engines specially for PS3 (also Sony helped them a bit too), which maybe was difficult at start but later were benefited alot by that as now they have their own engines perfected and giving some very well made games ...(kojima started with MGS4engine for PS3 and now evolved to Fox engine, Sony gave to FromSoft the phyre engine which evolved to BBorne engine..etc etc

Bullshit. PS3 wasnt maxed out by U2. TLoU maybe but not U2

TRU3_GAM3R1253d ago (Edited 1253d ago )

how is the ps3 maxed out with uncharted 2 or TLoU when there is this?.

crysis 3 on console realtime

uncharted 2 pre rendered cutscenes



yeah I am blind lol...

Third-Party never maxed out the PS3,they had to change a lot about Crysis 3 in terms of attributes to make it even portable.
Crytek uses high end solutions and do not necessarily optimize them
for pretty much anything,Uncharted 2 was developed with the CBE in mind and took full advantage of it's capabilities,well in comparison.
I would love to see a next gen CBE with more bandwidth and a better graphics solution,it's a very underrated chip

Crysis 3 looked so bad when running. The framerate was in the 15-20 range the vast majority of the time and the jaggies were oppressive.

For all of it's effects, Crysis 3 looked worse than Crysis 1 and Crysis 2 on PS3 - Crytek tried to do too much and the horrible performance ruined the experience and graphics.

You can max out a system, but you can also optimize your engine on a maxed out system. You can only get so much power out of a system. Your next steps are to optimize your engine to get more performance. Which i think you're getting the 2 confused.

It was obvious that it was maxed out with Uncharted 2 as it will be maxed out with Uncharted 4 and Star Wars Battlefront

Spotie1253d ago

Dunno how the PS3 will be maxed out with games it won't even have...

CertifiedGamer1249d ago

I messed up but meant the PS4 will be maxed out with Uncharted 4 and uncharted 3 as both games are coming out in the systems third birthday.

A system can be "maxed out" and still show improvement, as he is saying (I'd advise reading beyond the title). Despite what Uncharted 2 did/looked like, God of War III, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 3, and Beyond: Two Souls looked better. Why? Maxing out a machine doesn't mean you can't make improvements in other areas.

The latter portion of the console's life had developers (as Hable put it), "squeezing out" what they could, though he admits, there wasn't really much left. I don't expect Uncharted 4 to be Naughty Dog pushing the PS4 to Uncharted 2's point on the PS3, but their second game? No doubt.

Not really. "maxed out" means the limit has been reached. If you've reached the outer limits of what it can do, you can't go beyond that. If they were able to tweak something here and optimize something there to get another 1fps out of it or improve textures or improve loading times, it means they didn't hit the max with U2.

What he wanted to say was worded incorrectly.

NeverHeavyMan1253d ago (Edited 1253d ago )

If the PS3's limit had been 100% reached, you wouldn't have seen better games than Uncharted 2. That is not what maxed out means. Its RESOURCES can't be pushed any further, but the engine code can be modified in a way that would allow for optimization (as plenty on the PS3 proved). The Naughty Dog 2.0 engine had reached its limit on the PS3, but there was still enough juice to make games look and run better after Uncharted 2 released.

The engine, to that point, was maxed. The PS3's capabilities were not. Something I see people get confused on all of the time.

kneon1253d ago

You can max out any machine due to crappy code. It's easy to do, any idiot can do it.

A computer is only truly maxed out once the software has been fully optimized, and that takes a long time as someone will keep finding clever solutions to certain problems.

firelogic1252d ago

You're not getting it. If you can max out something that's it. You keep bringing up optimization. If it can be optimized, it didn't hit max. Max is the end of the road. Like I said above, if they can optimize to get better performance, it means it was never maxed to begin with. Max is the end. Being able to optimize means it wasn't at max.
