According to Seb Downie, QA Manager for Guerilla Games, the scene where the Helgast generals come out and overlook the destruction in the city was in real time.
game over for competition
having played the beta i can easily say those are standard gameplay graphics
Killzone 2 definitely utilizes technology not seen in gaming yet, or at least to the level they do. Everything from lighting effects to rendering. The general scene for example shows high detail in the character models as well as amazing draw distance and effects for the back drop.
who didnt think it was real-time?
when did we not think it was real-time? wasn't the whole trailer real-time?
I like the part where he says sometimes the controls locket up and the player would throw a grenade into the cutscene. That would be hilarious.
"There is of course some special animations for it, but if we wanted to we could run into the scene, guns blazing. In fact there have been bugs in the game where the player controls were not locked out properly and you could still throw grenades into a cutscene, wreaking havoc with the narrative." lol?
That scene doesn't look anymore amazing than the rest of the game.
oh baby halloween bubbles~ @above o ooo oOoo0ooOo
LOL Who would NOT want to throw grenades into the cutscene?! They should leave that bug IN!
Killzone 2 Rules .. Nothing else
Its over folks. Lol that sh1t is insane, with games at better than CGI levels on the PS3 in only the beginning of it's third year........damn. Its already the third year for 360........where is it's Killzone 2? and don't tell me Gears of War 2 otherwise I'll show you this http://image.com.com/gamesp... It makes you wonder what kind of games will look like on the PS3 in it's fourth year, or fifth year, or sixth, or seventh, or eighth, or ninth, or tenth. Makes you wonder what God of War 3 is gonna look like......*drools*
And that's a bullshot of Gears 2!!
Gears2 look worse than Resistance 2 and why bring it up anyway we all know KZ2 looks miless better than anything out there and it also plays miles better , i am saying this cuz i played the beta it is like SUPERCHARGED cod4 with 10x better graphics
if by bullshot you mean a fake it is real, it's from gamespot, IGN has the SAME picture posted up http://au.xbox360.ign.com/d... see. No bullshot, that's Gears of War 2 (1.5)
the real ones actually look a little worse than that too
when we mean Bullshot, we mean a cleaned up picture, aka photoshop to clean up the in-game pic.
The official screenshots that have been released are often bullshots. This means they are released at a higher resolution than is even possible on 360, and have lots of AA and post-processing has been applied. Of course, we expect a screenshot to show off a game's best side - if you take a screenshot at the best moment you can make a game look really good - but that's not what this is about. The bullshots released by Epic often have improved lighting, AA, resolution and detail. In Gears 2's case there is actually a full-screen motion blur effect the whole time so if you take an actual screenshot it does look blurry.
It is funny i have been noticing this alot here latley. Actually 360 fanboys don't start sh!t as much as people think they do it is retards like xhi4 that cause problems. Nobody said one bad word or came in here trolling until you ran your mouth. Shame maybe i haven't seen your post before cause i know i would have ignored you, but it is tooken care of.
Oh yeah guys..tell that to pp/failstation3/flopstation3/g aystation3 La chance/GiantEnemyCrab/POG/MART /Bladestar and the 20+ other morons always starting it. Incase you didn't realize..this is a PS3 article.There not in a 360 article bashing or trolling.And it's obvious (by looking at your old comments) You're a 360 fanboy yourself.Don't try and act so innocent.
I strongly believe it would be impossible for the Xbox 360 to render a single pubic hair of a Helghast General
even b4 release
Looks like it's gonna be Killzone 2 vs Gran Turismo 5 vs God of War 3 in 2009 Nothing else comes close.
Thats going to be sick. Thats 3 graphical powerhouses right there. 360 fanboys are going to have a hard time explaining how ps3 sucks. TBH 360 really needs some fantastic looking game next year. If they cant then the perception some people have that the consoles are equally powerfull is goint go change.
It is sad when the so called 360 fanboys are not even posting, and you still have to run your mouth. What would life be like without idiot's.
I hate the fanboy bullcrap just as much as the next guy around here but xbox die hards have karma coming. For the past 2 years while in development of a solid game base, ps3 has been bashed and torn by the gaming community as a total flop of a console. I will be the first to admit, after playing both consoles the ps3 needed better OS features to be truly on par with it's online adversary. The wait was worth it. Now that development for the ps3 has reached 3rd gen games, it's only proper to compare consoles. Why? I don't know how long i had to stand up to bullys for my purchase of a ps3. Every article was negatively spun, and in some cases still is. I felt like a minority in the gaming community, a ps3 owner. Things have obviously shifted more evenly since the launch of the ps3 only because more people can afford one and the games being exclusively developed are actually utilizing the technology. If you think the fanboy war is bad now, wait until the REAL ps2 base adopters purchase a ps3 after another price cut.
@4.2 I'll let you know once you stop posting.
KZ2 Looks great but they need to fix that mutli-player kill Lag,, The Video I watched the guy shot someone and there was a delay to when the guy died... Also the Explosions in the game look Fake, it looks like a poof of smoke with a reddish cloud rising up, I think they could have done better.. I also hope it works Day one, not week 4 Has for Gears 2, It Looks way better then that picture, they are 2 different games to judge graphically but IGN gave R1 a 8.5 in graphics and a 9.0 for R2 theys not a big change... Personally I Like R1 graphics better looks more real not cartoonish.. **DeZimatoR** I said it looks Great but it's game play had some Flaws,, I'll be picking it up if that helps you sleep at night... Also Killzone 2 should be one of the best looking games out they've been working on it for 5 years now... I just hope PSN doesn't hurt this Title, as it has to many others
...right? *sighs* Killzone 2 looks better than any other console game to date, and it will most definitely only be surpassed by other PS3 exclusives...
"KZ2 Looks great but they need to fix that mutli-player kill Lag," Thats why its still in closed beta. Still overall in the beta there is very little lag, at least when ive been playing it anyway
no lag kill
All I have to say to that is... DAAAAAAAAAAAMN!!!
its reminde me of a scene in Star Wars, but i dont know in wich episode it was
No... that's real time as in it's playing on the PS3.
thats what the game will look like in real time. You would be very uninformed to believe otherwise. Hell, ASK SOMEONE IN THE BETA. The MP looks the same lol and with 32 people in the game. no other console can pull that off.
Here in reality, the whole trailer is in real time. You can tell yourself the trailer was CG, but you've got no proof or reason for it. You can hate all you want but the truth is gonna smack you in the face come Feb 09.
KZ2 will be a truly epic FPS. I cannot wait! Are the Helgast robots or something? What's with the red eyes? I never played the first one. Please advise.
The Helghast have to wear specially engineered environment hazard suits to survive for long periods of time on Helghan (the planet they are on). (from wikipedia) Storyline The game is set in an era of space colonization where the Helghast Empire has recovered from its defeat in the First Helghan War and launched a blitzkrieg against the outer Interplanetary Strategic Alliance (ISA) colony planet Vekta. Vekta's orbital Strategic Defense (SD) platforms failed during the initial assault, allowing the Helghast to land swarms of soldiers onto the surface. This makes it all the more difficult for the outnumbered ISA forces. In the game, the Helghast are a faction of human descendants who colonized the planet Helghan many generations ago. The planet's harsh environment forced the Helghast to adapt and mutate so much that they can no longer be considered human. They are stronger, faster and more resilient than their human cousins, and possess a burning hatred for humanity. Except for a small number of half-breed Helghast and trained troopers, they require a gas mask and air processing tank that creates air similar to that found on the planet Helghan.
I too didn't get to play K1 (thinking about getting it though) but I came across the whole storyline here http://www.killzone.com/kz/... Long read but it describes alot and answers many questions which really draws you into the title.
Liiiiiiiiiez! /sarcasm But seriously...HOLY SH*T.
Game Over? You seem to think that graphics decide a generation, which is laughable! The original Xbox was more powerful but did that mean it was a better console than the PS2? Nooooooooooo
so NOW u admit the ps3 is powerful
Dude, do yourself a favor. Throw that xbox in the trash bin where it belongs, and buy yourself a PS3. I PROMISE, you will NOT be disappointed.
i cant WAIT for this game
I'm wondering if you can shoot the Helghast's airtanks.
As always, PS3 delivers. And this is at the beginning of Year 3 for the PS3. Heavy Rain and (hopefully) God of War 3 are also in 2009. Imagine what we'll see in Year 4 or Year 5...or Year 8!
If that part was real time, was the rest CGI? Oh..a new acronym for CGI. Cell Generated Imagery.
Bubbles for the CGI remark. Looking forward to KZ2 very much. I'm not a huge fan of shooters but can't wait for this game along with R2.
I agree, i like it too. Slick and true.
Killzone 2 will put the hole game industrie in a new Level. After this Game i think we will see other publishers to try to produce games to be on paar or to be match this quality. I must say i never seen Graphics like this on a Console, they are almost CG-like
"In fact there have been bugs in the game where the player controls were not locked out properly and you could still throw grenades into a cutscene, wreaking havoc with the narrative." i hope they don't patch this bug =X
Photorealistic graphics are too immersive. People shouldn't be fooled into thinking they're playing CGI in realtime; games are supposed to look like games!
Everything from this game that we saw in the last 2 years is real time. So there is no doubt here.
yeah pretty says it all!! can't wait
