Much like Naughty Dog did with Uncharted 2; it seems that Insomniac has also improved various aspects of the engine for the upcoming Ratchet & Clank.
well the pictures arent even @ high resolution so how do they know the graphics improved? And it only been like 1 month in a half since comic-con. either way Ratchet looks sweet.
U can't tell from crap ass pic, aint' buying into that hype. even though i like RC
If you'd listen to the Full Moon show then you'd know by now that there is constant graphics improvement towards the end of Insomniac's game developments, always. Brian Allgeier, the creative director said "It's just amazing to see how the graphics and overall look of the game has changed in the 2 week time period." Even though these images shown are very pixelated and lowres, you can still see that the armour of ratchet has changed, and the face is also improved. InsomniGod, NaughtyGod and SantaMoniGod... There really isn't need for more after this.
It looks much better than Tools of Destruction, and that game didn't look half bad to begin with...
I am so buiyng this! They are getting my hopes up for Resistance 3 as well.. I bet it will be the best - and best looking of course - Resistance game.
Many people love Resistance but I hope they do something else. Maybe a new IP perhaps? If they are going to do Resistance then it should be simply mind blowing. GG has set the bar extremely high and I think Insomniac should take some time to meet the high standards set by a PS3 exclusive itself. Every PS3 shooter will probably get compared with KZ2 and it'll be damn difficult to top KZ2 every time.
Killzone 2 and LBP ruined Resistance for me! I only played through the campaign once and I had some good time with the MP, but not nearly what I would have wanted.
"Many people love Resistance but I hope they do something else. Maybe a new IP perhaps?" They did open a new studio so the new IP is possible, actually I think they did say they were working on a new one.
But the resolution these pictures are shown it really sucks. It's hard to tell the difference.
You can see the shadows are darker tho in the newer screens on his face.
this is the the PS3 we are talking about. Not the x360.
Do I dare say this will be the best looking comic-art looking game on the market once it's released?
You may dare. It'll be replacing the previous champ, Tools of Destruction.
That's it. Why the hell are you still reading? :D
that 360 can ever do these kind of graphics?
OMG Dirt2 looks f' amazing is like having Motorstorm2 on my 360, WOW... :D
both Ratchet & Clank games are sub hd. http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... unlike Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts it's full 720p with 2xaa
yes 360 can, I hav a ps3 slim and a 360, ive been playing ratchet and clank, and I love it, it feels like im playing a cgi kids movie toystory vs robots, but I also have Kameo for the 360 and I feel its graphics are slightly better and its music is epic, now im not a fan of either console just my opinion. and I think kameo came out in 2005 so think what a new kameo would look like :), oh and cant wait for uncharted 2 I think this game will have the best graphics, I think it will set the bar to a new level,as a new ps3 owner, I love uncharted, mgs4, and ratchet and clank, now I played killzone 2 and I think that game was overrated I could not get into it, I found it boreing and to fast paced, graphics were good , but I dont know I feel gears of war 2 has better graphics , and how I like gears better, way more variation in enemies and love the cut scenes. anyhow I like both consoles both have good and bad points and both have good games, to me game play comes first, graphics come 2nd and there is not much between the 2 consoles as far as graphics go, both can do what the other can do from what I can see and have experienced.
I think that you should go and play Kameo again @NewZealander. Because I think that you still have the same impression of the game when it came out and you saw HD for the first time. The game looks like a PS2 game, seriously. =/ Kameo X360: http://www.youtube.com/watc... FFXII PS2: http://www.gametrailers.com... Ratchet & Clank Future Tools of Destruction PS3: http://www.youtube.com/watc... - As you can see R&C blows both out of the water. Kameo looks like sh!t. If you want to search for a better video of Kameo then do it.
Unfortunately the Xbox 360 hardware would blow up if it ever ran such beutiful graphics. The graphical powerhouse is only to be seen on the true HD hardware of this generation, the PlayStation 3. Games like Uncharted Drakes Fortune, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and Killzone 2 are some of the released games that are not possible on Xbox 360. As well as the upcoming games, such as, Ratchet and Clank A Crack in Time, Uncharted 2 Among Thieves, Heavy Rain, Eye Pet, God of War 3 and The Last Guardian. All hail, the true HD console of this generation, the PlayStation 3.
love to see sony make this into a movie animated of corse
LOL and MS just confirmed they want to run all their games in sub-HD. At least Sony's not this stupid to force developers to make their games run in sub-HD.
got it all wrong. they just dropped the MINIMUM. that still doesn't mean a developer can't make their games at 720p, the hardware is there it's just up to the developers to use it correctly.
They should have named it Ratchet and Clank Future: Clock Blocked. Seems like the perfect name
unlike Batman AA. Batman and everyone else in that game look like a wet, shiny plastic toy.. that's UNREAL for you, the best the crapbox can do.. LMAO!!1!.. but it's a good game. just one more trophy for platinum #8 (need to beat it in hard mode, i just ended croc part)
Hard mode was extremely easy on the campaign. But I'm having lot of difficulty with the challenges. And not enjoying the attempts either. So, I think I'm just going to shelve the game and start playing something else without worrying about those challenges and getting the platinum.
The graphics have indeed improved. Honestly, I really would love to see an animated film using the Ratchet & Clank game engine. Wouldn't that be cool?
R&C 3D game and movie!
heres pics in better resolution of ign: july http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... ----------------------------- --------- August http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... ----------------------------- - graphics improved for sure
that is a nice jump
Ratchet & Clank games are among the best platform games ever made. I can't wait for this game. I played the hell out of Future and Size Matters. This game is looking awesome.
If this game doesn't have some kind of freaky new weapons, like a weird alien whose balls you squeeze and it belches enemies to death, then it blows... wha?! You, you mean... it does?
news for graphic whores.
Macho Meter detects an XBot envious of the glorious non-FPS on the PS3, yeah! And one thing I can also comprehend and contemplate about this situation we're talking about is where might the critically acclaimed platformers of three-sixtical nature? YEAH!! Hey, you're alright. DIG IT.
Oh yeah, because graphics is the reason there are ten iterations of this game!
strange how you jump to the conclusion that im an "xbot". i own a ps3 and unlike you, i dont waste my time participating in these "next-gen" fantasy wars you and your peers probably get boners over. "DIG IT"? who even says that?
well if you own a ps3 you know that you get graphics and gameplay with ps3 exclusives i really don't get why so many idiots try and say graphics aren't important if they don't matter why buy any new consoles just play tetris its the same game as it was when it released i know i didn't spend hundreds of dollars on a system and 60 on a game to look like crap i want to see progress in my games so all the clowns who don't care about graphics ask yourself why did you buy a next gen system if you don't want next gen looking games the gameplay of old games and new ones aren't much different in golden eye you shoot with the triggers and move with the anolog stick just like every shooter on consoles so the only reason i can see for buying a new console is for progression
Firstly, when replying, at least use commas ffs. Secondly, are you saying that "next-gen" for you meant better graphics? wait... lemme get this straight... the ONLY difference you see between the ps2 and the ps3, and the xbox and the xbox360 ARE GRAPHICS?!?!? pff... you obviously are a retard.
yeah i'm not gonna waste my time with grammar on a game forum and yes graphics are the biggest improvement in next gen consoles like i said golden eye plays just like any other shooter ninja gaiden still plays the same racing games all play the same yes game consoles have other improvements but none as big as graphics and if you think i'm wrong give some proof or keep your mouth shut
all the comments up until yours were positive ones in regard to the game. then you called everyone graphic whores. so it seems that not only do you partake in "next gen fantasy wars" you like to start them. if your not concerned with graphics there are better ways to express it. "DIG IT"? who even says that? macho man says that, that's who. lol that's actually the funniest online macho man impression i've seen. anyway i love graphics and the ratchet and clank series. glad to see the visuals have improved so much. i'm confident the gameplay will follow suit.
Game looks awesome both visually and gameplay wise. Day 1 purchase, love R&C games...just so much fun.
Not saying the game has not improved, but what the hell can you tell from those pics,lol.
those pics are terrible, but helghan666 posted some great pics from ign a few comments above. also, there are a couple of vids in the psn store that really show off the upgrade.
I was one of those crazy R1 lovers. that game to me was close to perfect. I loved the graphics. I loved the gameplay and weapons. I loved the weapon wheel, and most of all I LOVED the overall gameplay elements and overall feel of the game! Enter R&CF... that game was awesome but modified the R1 engine for R&C. Then it went down hill for Resistance IMO. They needed to separate their tech for the two games, R2 to me was ratchet colorful, and although some parts of the game like the swamp level and the sewer level were AWESOME, it didn't have the personality of r1 in the least. I also feel they tried to do too much in 2 years and the game suffered for it. Not to mention incorporating other games' trademarks to make it more "normal" With R3 coming most likely in 2010, i hope they just give us an INSANE single player and a COOL multiplayer. if they want coop, just let two players going online together or play the single player from separate ps3's. I want R1 back!!! but just INSANE and a game that looks like its their 6th game.. can you believe that?!?!? Insomniac have made 5 ps3 games this gen so far.(including the next ratchet) I am a huge resistance believer and fan, the second one was good but not what i wanted.. here's to hoping resistance 3 can be killzone 2 caliber, (because we already know insomniac are better than GG in some departments) we just need the graphics and the soul of R1 instilled in the next installment and I'm all set. From what I've been reading a lot of you will be all set as well ;) ok rant over, sorry guys lol
i like the fact that developers are getting the hang of the ps3. hopefully the graphics will get better as the release day aproaches.
