On the line at E3 representatives of the game said that the graphics weren't done and that the game still has alot more polish to go through. When asked if the game will rival the CG trailer from E3'08 they responded saying
nicee One Game...apart from Uncharted, GT5, The Agent that I would do anything to play is..... God of War 3!!! The excitement is literally eating away at me!
God of War 3 is going to be a great looking game and it is one of the games I am looking forward to next year.
means absolutely nothing to me if the game isnt fun. which im guessing GoW3 will be.
of course God of War is gonna be fun! has there ever been one that wasn't??
Psshhhhh and they mock "teh cell". The Cell Broadband Engine is simply a technical marvel, no matter what anybody has to say. Oooops my bad, wrong reply button!
Wow that was a big jump from VGA to E3. Well they have over 8 months, and I for one think they can do it, seeing how it's already on par with many of the best looking games all console right now. But hiphop I'm going to have to smash you. Killzone 2 was not the only game to look like CG. Ratchet and Clank: FTOD I was the first at least to me.
Even with games like these the Ps3 gets soo much hate, and the 360 gets praised even when it has technical defects (and yes 360 fanboys it still is defected forget about the e74 virus?).
But I won't be buying this game. I'm so over hackand slash buttonmashers, they just get overly repetitive. Pushing button combinations over and over and over again loses its fun too quickly. The other God of War games, DMC4 and Heavenly Sword are recent examples of games that are just too repetitive and involve too little interactivity to keep me interested.
@abizzel...you're so right..I downloaded all three trailers on my ps3(VGA,SCALE,E3) and even thought all three are suppossedly the same, you can see the differences majorly, escpecially when you pause at the close up to Kratos's face, great work Sony Santa Monica @ mal_tez: well..thats your opinion and I respect that, but I just want to say the director of GOW III Stig Assmussen said that there are two ways to play throught the game( this comment applies to all the GOW's) you can go through it with a couple of combos, like square square triangle, or you can create combos through out, I used to love creating combos escpecially against the Minotaurs...dude you hit them a couple of times then swing up the air grab them in the air and slam them, they would bounce back up then you would swing them onto the floor and right before hitting the floor you would press square and Kratos would swing his other blade to keep the minotaur in the air, you could also hit him before he hits the ground and make fly off the cliff(if you were on one) man.....oh...sorry about that, gd times, might actually replay it for like the fourth time
I own all 3 "next gen" consoles and I can honestly say that the PS3 is the only game system I play now. I have no bias towards any company and as a HUGE fan of the original XBOX I was hoping MS would have created the 360 with more storage and power. Regardless, back on topic. I CANT WAIT for GOW3!!! I am in the UC2 beta and the CO OP gameplay is AMAZING! You know a game is good when you play the same mission close to 100 times!!!!!! This is unheard of. The graphics, gameplay and immersion in the environment with the other 2 players has never been presented in this way before. I love it! KUDOS TO SONY!! THE GAMES ONLY GET BETTER FROM HERE ON!!!
I love Hiphopgamer's enthusiasm for the gaming industry as a whole but jeez, tone down the hype on the titles of the articles. Peter Molyneux would be proud. For example: "Bethesda Software Brings Killzone 2 Quality For Xbox360 With Brink." It may have great graphics but Killzone 2 is at a very high bar in terms of visuals. Hell, I'd be surprised if Brink surpasses Gears of War 2. I don't doubt God of War III is going to have eye exploding awesome graphics but rival CG? It cannot rival CG without AA, locked FPS, and high IQ. Even Killzone 2 cannot rival it's infamous CG trailer. It can look close but NOTHING will ever rival CG this generation.
What does locked FPS have to do with CG quality graphics? By your analogy, since GoW3 runs at between 30 and 60 fps i guess that means it already surpass the CG trailer which i persume run at atbout 30fps. Also as far as im concerned to rival something doesnt mean that you are better or as good as something else. It means that you are close. Also while you could say KZ2 didnt look quite as good as the CG trailer, it was still better then the CG renders in some areas while not quite as good in others. Overall i think you could say it pretty much met the target render.
and i'm not talking about the game. i'm talking about the flip-flop hypocrite sony fanboys that normally line up to hate hhg. but because he supposedly got this info at e3(yet took many weeks to post it, and is the only site making such claims...interesting) everythings all forgotten, and the turds are having a party!! n4g...lol the worst and biggest hypocrite idiotic community on the net. now i'm going back to play some killzone!b
Great! Can't wait to see more footage in the upcoming months.
Lord a' mercy. o-O I cannot wait.
Anyone with eyes and half a brain knows God Of War III's eye-melting graphics are fact.
Meh, I just do a little dance whenever I hear awesome stuff like this. :) In Sony's 1st party studios I trust. Knock em' dead Sony!
Comparing pixels in multiplatform games. It only makes sense that if folks are going to bash consoles for sharing inferior ports then there should be news explaining how awesome and eye melting the exclusives are going to be.
i have no doubt that the final product will come close to the E3 08 trailer...this is God Of War 3 after all haha! its gonna go out with a bang!
by the gods...
Epic post is epic.
that E3 stuff was pre alpha?
it kind of boggles the mind doesnt it. :) in my time as a gamer ive gone from pitfall (the first game i ever owned) to this. god i love being a gamer.
GOW I & II two weeks ago just to catch up with the story and to know how the gameplay works. I gotta say for a ps2 game they super good with widescreen, smoothing, and progressive scan turned on.
I remember doing that just to test my TV with the Ps2. I'm probably going to play part 1 and 2 before 3 is released. Can't wait. ^_^
I did too, it's amazing what a few years can do.
it already looks awesome, the kratos model is full of detail, and is effected by outside sources like blood from bodies. I can't wait to see what the final product will look like.
Kratos has to be the most detailed character model I have ever seen. He even surpasses this guy!
Your trying to hard Colombo.
can't wait on fall 09.
March 2010 is when the game comes out -_-
Maybe he's referring to TGS. More GOW III gameplay there with newly-polished engine, possibly? :D
i thought ghost busters prooved ps3 wasnt capable of thing like this. lol. :) how odd.
I've been doing my best to stay away from all hype of this game. I don't want to see pics, movies or any inkling of story. I want to be completely surprised by EVERYTHING when I purchase this game.
I don't care what hhg says or any of u because everything I've seen so far in no way impresses me with "cg" graphics or rival uncharted 1. How 3 looks like gow and that's great but not impressive
Just like everyone here but to say that GOW3 isnt graphically impressive would mean one of three things 1.) You are an extremely jaded gamer 2.) You need ur eyes checked or 3.) You're in denial.
If any one can pull it off, I'd say the talented People at Sony Santa Monica can.
CG Render to rival GoW3's in-game graphics. ;P
that claims stuff just to get hits and get fanboys amped..
lol this will never happen on a console.
-Never? I would agree that high level prerendered CGI quality will not be attained on this round of consoles, but I am sure it eventually will be attained by consoles.-
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of destruction says hello
The marine in the StarCraft II cinematic trailer is one of the most complex rendered characters in history. I think he's got something in the neighborhood of 5,000,000 polygons, and that rendering one frame took a whole farm of computers HOURS to accomplish, because of the insane textures, reflections, effects and lighting. In fact, it was such a massive load that Blizzard's own renderer BROKE and refused to render the scene. They had to do separate rendering passes in the end LOL. http://eu.starcraft2.com/fe... The only thing that comes close to this is Gran Turismo 5 on the PlayStation 3, which can render up to 16 car models on track with each car having approximately 200,000 polygons. Running at 1080p and fairly steady framerate of 60fps, this brings the total to approximately 3.2 million polygons, notwithstanding the character models on the sides of the track, the environment and the skybox. I'd say a fair estimate of a fully-loaded environment in GT5 to be approaching about 3.5 million polygons. Let's not forget about 128-bit precision HDR lighting, independent A.I. and physics per car, and animations for spectators, water, textures on and in the cars and on everything you see, So for the PlayStation 3 to come past the 50% point of that amazing pre-rendered StarCraft marine and in REAL-TIME no less...is absolutely stunning, shocking and awe-inspiring and it further shows that the PS3 is indeed a technical innovation and inspiration, and that when put in the hands of a talented developer and when running a proprietary engine built for the machine specifically..you'll see results that are nothing short of amazing. And a side note...I'd love to see an animated film with Ratchet, clank and quark made using the R&CF: TOD engine. The animations and graphics are so nice, I know I'd watch it for sure.
I'd hate to break it to you, but there's a little something called LOD (level-of-detail) in games. While the full model, up close and personal can be rendered at full mesh resolution, cars further away are rendered in their lower resolution models, and there's absolutely no reason to do otherwise. So the 16 cars are not each 200000 polygons at the same time. Yes, GT5P may be a feat in graphics department, but your calculations are way, way off.
Yeah, forgot to include LOD in there. But still...when there's 16 cars bunched up near eachother on the track...they're all being rendered fully. That's still 3.2 million polygons at least.
i cant wait 2 play this. never had a playstation till ps3. i never got 2 play GOW till the other day when i bought GOW on psp. it was cool.
People, look at the source...it is Hippopgamer....the National Inquiry of videogame Blog... Nothing to see here. You can tell by my avatar and past posts, I am one of the biggest GOW fan there is..but I am not going to listen to a fake 50cent wannabe videogame reporter that claim KZ2 have a chance to surpass Halo 3 in sales or GTA5 will be a PS3 exclusive...this guy is making stuff up as usual.
Hiphoplamer is retarded. But if Killzone 2 is anything to go by, it wouldn't surprise me if God of War 3 actually does surpass the CG render.
are you kidding me they approved this ? MY GOD , that's HHG for you stating the obvious weeks after we saw the amazing E3 09 vids really is this what he calls news worthy by stating the obvious we know GOW3 looks amazing already HHG jesus christ ppl need to stop approving this junk especially from a guy that is easily blown away by CG trailer ( remember when he mentioned Halo ODST months ago that it looks amazing from a teaser trailer ) seriously HHG LEAVE! we don't want you your not a journalist you were just lucky now leave gaming journalism to the professionals like IGN , GamePro or hell even Classic Game Room and even than the guy just reviews games nothing else and yet he's way more entertaining than you . listen HHG fans leave him and go watch Classic Game Room on youtube it's way better .
"that's HHG for you stating the obvious weeks after we saw the amazing E3 09 vids" Wait you really do think GoW3's graphics looks like CG? Uncharted 2 has better visuals than this game.
they both have better graphics than any other console game
How come HHG still isnt banned from posting his turd here?
From HHG.. nevermind then.
Because we are feeding him and his family back to the topic God of war vs er ghostbuster anyone yes thats what i was thinking STFU mooks cant comment on these types of games cause the cat gets his tongue and sticks it up pps and marts ass God of war and any other ps3 exclusive >>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>> >>>>>> Any xbox game
"and his family" DAMN!!!!!!!!! HE IS MULTIPLYING!! (grab a shotgun)
because one of the mods likes him.
I played the game at E3 and my mind was blown. To me and my staff, the game already looked unbelievably good. If it's going to get better, then MY GOD.
it is that hip hop gamer . sony fanboies are so happy now because it is about god of war 3 but still it is HHG no credibility. don't get me wrong sony fanboies i love god of war 3 but still it is HHG craps .
Shades of Scorpius!
GOD3 does look great but it has more to do with the the talented devs and large budget/4year timeframe than any technical merits of the cell engine.look what the devs got out of ps2 last gen even though it was the most underpowered console compared to xbox1.the xbox1 had the best multiplats last gen as it was the most powerful why do sony fans think anythings changed this gen i.e. xbox360 = most powerful
I can't really tell if Uncharted 2 looks better then GOW3, they both look stunning. The GOW3 Devs said that the footage shown at E3-2009 was a June/2008 build of the game so just imagine how far it's progressed since then.
The GOW3 Devs said the demo shown at E32009 was a June 2008 build of the game and that was almost 17 months ago, and plus the Dev said they already have an updated build of the game running on the PS3 that hasn't been shown to public. Could this be the build that's going to shock the gaming world? because this unseen build has been in development for about 16-17 months.
The CELL is a future based product you dumbass, just because the tools aren't available to make the most out of it within a short span of time doesn't mean it's under powered. Soon games looking as good as GOW3 and KZ2 will be made in a span of 2 years and then that time will be shortened to 1, this will happen when better development tools for the CELL are available to the developers. The CELL is new remember that! and the XBoX360's more powerful? I find that hard to believe after looking at it's games.
oh please the CELL chip has been a disaster for SONY with 99% of games released being superior on the 360 with only a few in house devs with large budgets and lots of time getting a decent performance.multi plats make up the most popular games each year and if industry vets like capcom EA cant allways get a decent performance just look at the recent ghostbusters game.multiplats is a consoles bread and butter and the ps3 has had a lot of negative press because of the complicated cell which has probably effected sales along with the many delayed games.dont believe sonys hype the cell has allready been outperformed by the pc gaming cards.
have people forgotten this? http://www.destructoid.com/...
As awesome as GOW looks and is gonna look, Im sorry to say we're still not close to cgi quality graphics yet. Maybe next gen or the gen after that.
... it'll only continue to get that much better! Killzone 2 looks amazing, but not the old school CG trailer amazing... at least not to me! so Im definatley taking this statement with a pinch of salt! but obviously this'll be yet again another mind blowing/stellar must own PS3 release! cannot wait to expand my collection with this title!
@ SolidJun You won't have to, the special edition disc will have a blu-ray of Part 1 and 2, so that new players can play the complete trilogy since the PS3 is not PS2 BC. I think the price point is 89.99. There's tons of people that have not played the first 2 and are dying to see what the hype is all about. Same goes for Uncharted 2. You will see a spike in sales for Uncharted once part 2 arrives. People who were skeptical are hearing the buzz about the game and getting anxious to see what this phenom is all about. Honestly, it looks like 2010 will overshadow 2009
