I know I will get a lot of disagrees but I must honestly say that if this is how each console will run this engine, then I must say that Killzone 2 and RE5 have just been outperformed.

Daz5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

i agree but everyone has a differnt outlook on what graphics are good and great.

i like crysis more but others like others game better.

MURKERR5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

we know your desperate, but you should wait for a REAL preview before you start with your fanboy flame comments. companies are known for touching up videos of their games and this is certain

YungXclusive2K95294d ago

I honestly don't think 360 will be able to handle the physics of the trees and lighting effects of this engine, which is the main reason why crisis was so detailed on great gamer computers.

Look at the way the trees sway and break down, Those are not graphics those are physics

my ps3 has multiple cores to handle effects like that my 360 doesn't

And so it begins, let the useless, magnifying glass pixel counting arguing commence.

/on topic

I must say, it`s looking good, expect a few games to support this since EA is knee deep into Crytech.

YungXclusive2K9, I thought 360 had 3 cores, while the PS3 had 1 core and 7 SPEs?

Edit: No on what?
CPU: Cell Processor
• PowerPC-base Core @3.2GHz
• 1 VMX vector unit per core
• 512KB L2 cache
• 7 x SPE @3.2GHz
• 7 x 128b 128 SIMD GPRs
• 7 x 256KB SRAM for SPE
• 1 of 8 SPEs reserved for redundancy
• total floating point performance: 218 GFLOPS

360 -
Custom IBM PowerPC-based CPU
• Three symmetrical cores running at 3.2 GHz each
• Two hardware threads per core; six hardware threads total
• VMX-128 vector unit per core; three total
• 128 VMX-128 registers per hardware thread
• 1 MB L2 cache

Nice now let see how Sony is gonna answer to this :D

morganfell5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

Well it isn't just the physics mind you. How big are the worlds going to be? Disc space suddenly rears it's ugly head.

You are also looking at a game engine that won't be seen until 2011. By which time we will have already seen the final God of War III engine and will have seen the new Killzone 3 engine. No multiplatform engine can compete on the same field as a dedicated engine.

What games are using this engine? Exactly.

What question are Sony supposed to answer? It's a tech demo. Some people will buy into anything. No AI, no game scripting, a great deal is missing from a tech demo. As soon as you start taxing a system with that the visuals will take a major hit.

Multiplatform engines don't look or work as well as dedicated game engines. Jack of all Trades = Master of none.

And Killzone 2 lighting engine rules all over this. Question answered now put your hand down.

YungXclusive2K95294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )


correct morgan how the hell is my 360 gonna run some shi* like this when it can only hold 5 gigs of disk space with the other 2 for security

and what makes killzone 2 so spectacular is the lighting effects and the and particle effects just look at phyrus rise on

Crysis Has some bad azz graphics though but they seem impossible on my 360 without drastic measures, and News flash to microsoft nobody has a 100mb per second bandwith so we can't download this shi*

theKiller5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

sorry Killzone 2 is ps3 exclusive!!!!

while these videos r great have yet to see it in real action!!!!

plus the good thing about KZ2 is not only graphics but the animation and art style combined with the graphics and different and many light rendering!!!

so far Killzone 2 is the best FPS game ever made and best console graphical game in existence!! until that is broken then let me know by who!!!

Montrealien5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

Morganfell defending a PS3 game!?! I am shocked!

I love being me, I think this engine looks great for consoles just how colorful it is wins points for be compared to Killzone 2 though. With that said I also think Killzone 2 looks great. Now was that so hard? Being me, and not a brand wh*re rocks!

joydestroy5294d ago

no dude, i def agree with you. that looks amazing!
i'm speechless!!! just wow! esp the water effects.

HDgamer5294d ago

Comparisons of games that aren't out or playable. Wow

JokesOnYou5294d ago

hands down best gaming engine on either platform....that vid is awesome....dammm I'm excited.


Aquanox5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

RE5 yes. I believe it has the best character models and lighting out there whereas Killzone 2 has the best particle effects and probably psychics and there are great enemy animations on both.

The vegetation, lightning and water I see here aren't matched in any of those games. They could improve the citadel scenes though.

Major_Tom5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

I don't mean to be cynical but honestly how do you think the Xbox 360 is going to graphically out perform the PS3? It's not going to happen, the PS3 has newer hardware in it that's all it comes down to.

RE5 is extremely static and linear that's a bad example.

The Lazy One5294d ago

there are some really dumb people disagreeing to some of the comments in this article...

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Myth5294d ago

"look at the Island at 1:19 and campare it to the ps3 Island"
Very true this engine looks awesome on both systems. But the PS3 pulls way ahead on this one look at 1:19.

y0haN5294d ago

Look how crap this looks on PS3. The colours, the aliasing, the lighting. Oh my!


ps921175294d ago

No ps3 has 7 cores, vs 360 3 cores, in a single chip of a ps3 you have a single logic cpu and 7 spus, in 360 yo have 3cpus.

hazeblaze5294d ago

RE5 is not at the top of the heap to begin with... but I agree. Still... doesn't look much better than KZ2 yet graphically. But by the time they release finished games vs. demo trailers, it should be a different story. However, it's interesting how much better the water and volumetric smoke look on the PS3 version.

thewhoopimen5294d ago (Edited 5294d ago )

hahah... Walther. Tell me your arguments again and lets compare multiplatform vs. exclusives.

If multiplatforms are so great why are there more people playing exclusives comparatively? Why do magazine writers consistently proclaim this or that exclusive as the "best looking game we've seen on this console?" Technology just isn't pushed to the edge on a multiplat that any exclusive will get.

Multiplats are middle-of-the-road titles when it comes to the technology envelope. The goal of the developer is to make a multiplat fun equally well on all consoles. It's about compatibility not performance.

I'm not even trying to do a console comparison and I still have your reasoning debunked. Please try a little harder.

Aquanox5294d ago

Ok look at this picture:


Nothing, I repeat nothing in consoles looks as good at the moment. I can understand people saying this has been doctored (I myself think there's a bit of that) but believing any game, Killzone or not, looks as good or better than that is just ridiculous.

All-35294d ago

LOL --> What part of --> "REAL TIME" didn't you understand?

DelbertGrady5294d ago

The PS3 fanboys are crying like it was holiday 2008 all over again.

joydestroy5294d ago

if you think this engine won't be on anything until 2011, i'd like to disagree on that.

i think Crytek will use the CryEngine 3 to port Crysis Warhead over to consoles and make some extra dough. it might not be called Crysis Warhead though. i think we'll see this engine in a game by the end of 2010.
