Activision Bullshots Confirmed

Erik Brudvig from IGN writes:

"It isn't any secret that many publishers touch up screenshots before sending them out to the public. If a game doesn't look snazzy enough in its current form, digital artists can make sure you and I don't get the "wrong idea" about an upcoming game. Message boards around the Internet regularly post and dissect such "bullshots," but as you might imagine it is nearly impossible to get a videogame developer or publisher to admit to retouching screenshots."

The story is too old to be commented.

I hate bullshots. They are dishonest and only do gamers a disservice.
It also makes you wonder how many of these "screenshot comparisons" are actually valid.

LOL remember the HAZE bullsots...ahhh good time, good times.

Remember those Halo 3 & Gears 1/2 bullshots, but yet M$ never gets ANY crap about those huh? Whereas Sony clearly explains the KZ2 video as TARGET RENDER (no lies or bs talk) and they still get the crap end of the stick for being up front & later when surpassing the target video everybody is mum about it. Hypocrites...

Here's part of my proof before people call "BS" ~
1) http://screenshots.teamxbox...
Gears 2 cannot be displayed at a 2922 x 2880 pixel resolution on the 360. PERIOD.

2) http://www.1up.com/media/03...
Neither can it be done at 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution

Halo 3 NEVER looked ANYTHING like this video as M$ was implying it was "in game"

That is why I don't look these comparisons. Demos and rentals first!

mfwahwah3551d ago

Demos and rentals to judge graphics? Hell, I try not to judge graphics at all lol.

RebornSpy3551d ago

Graphics aren't a huge deal. As long as they don't suck, I'm fine as long as the gameplay is good. Companies shouldn't have to worry about the quality of screenshots so long as the game is fun to play.

Unicron3551d ago

Epic are the king of the bullshot.

El_Colombiano3551d ago

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Bathyj3551d ago

Didn't the term Bullshots come about after the Gears of War pix were so obviously altered?

I could be wrong, I'm asking a question not making a statement, hence the little ? mark.

Epic: 2560x1600 with 16:AF 16:AA ftw!

*Customer gets game*

Customer:LIAR!!!
