I'm sure the last gen version will look great, after all I'm getting the PS3 version

The 360 and PS3 versions of GZ look PHENOMENAL when compared to their next gen counterparts. I have no doubt in my mind that TTP will be any different.

Loktai1202d ago

Yeah I Mean.... theres a difference but ground zeroes looks fine on PS3. Ill be playing on PS4 but Im sure the experience will be similar enough.

It does look good for old hardware no doubt. I was going to get it on ps4 but I'm going PC. I had a chance to try GZ on PC the other day and the difference is pretty big especially at 4k 60fps

Loktai1197d ago

now THAT Im sure is a leap. I think it looks great on PS4 but I dont have a 4k display to take advantage. Im moving my theater room and will eventually upgrade TVs and maybe put a gaming PC in there... build a quiet place to store it so I dont need to go low-end to hear myself think and Ill be in 4k bliss also.

Anybody know where the English version of the new demo is?

Meltic1202d ago

why did they even bother with the old gens. This was the last MGS.... would have been cool to only have next gen MGS

Sm00thop1202d ago

Some game engines just scale really well over different hardware, plus there is still a massive audience on last gen that can't afford to upgrade right now and I'm happy that everyone gets to at least play the game. It will obviously be better on current gen so no one is getting shafted.

IIFloodyII1202d ago

Probably because it started development 5+ years ago.
I'm just guessing here now, but Japan probably played a big part in the decision too, with current gen consoles not really taking off there.

WitWolfy1202d ago

You DO know you're talking about Konami here, right?

Fez1202d ago

I'm a bit disappointed it is cross platform as well. MGS games have always pushed the graphical boundaries on release and even though V looks great, I wouldn't say it's any sort of graphical benchmark or standard on consoles.

Bit of a shame Konami is trying to maximize profits rather than potential.

The only disappointing aspect of this games visuals is the simple geometry which is due to previous gen consoles. You can see it everywhere but especially the rocks which are àlways pointy. People rarely consider complex geometry when speaking of visuals but its incredibly important

PhucSeeker1201d ago

I'll take 60fps over eye-candy any day of the week. But what's that? MGS5 will be released on PC? You know what, drop last-gen ver.

Kojima wants his games to be enjoyed on as many platforms as possible, nothing wrong with that.

The PS3 version will sell a lot, that's for sure.

So that's why it runs @60fps

IIFloodyII1202d ago

Also the Fox engine being amazing. Shame it'll probably only now get used for PES.

WitWolfy1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

I was under the impression that the FOX engine is property of Kojima, not Konami.

IIFloodyII1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

It's Konami's, everything Kojima Productions has made, is Konami's.
