NF shift doesn't perform at 60 fps.....and so it fails miserably.

Model5407d ago

GT5 runs at 60 and it smashes both games

ur mama doesn't perform at 60 fps.....and so she fails miserably.

El Botto5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

Did Turn 10 lie about that aswell just like they did with the "10x more polygons" crap?

Did xbots got suckered into ANOTHER one of MSs lies again?

Chubear5407d ago

Can't even get metal or Carbon Fiber to look right. 360fanbase, psst, metal isn't supposed to look like Plastic.

Hellsvacancy5407d ago

Forza 3 bein out-shined by(not only) a Multiplat game but a game made by EA



LOLZ,it's not like i care 360 has the better version of shift, so maybe i'll both.

Eh, car models are better on NFS (lok at the R8 headlight detail on NFS) why does forza 3 have plastic shaders on the cars especially when all the car photos have reflective surfaces. Also are they using shadow maps for the track?

Marceles5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

After seeing this, Shift looks better than I thought. Is there a way to pan down or back the camera up while in the c0ckpit in Forza? I gotta download the Forza demo, otherwise I would say it sure makes a Forza modeler's life easier since the camera is up closer to the c0ckpit, so they don't have to model as much of it.

Sarcasm5407d ago

You can pan left and right in Forza, but not up and down.

Lets-Game5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

I think nfs shots are blurred because almost all of them are taken in motion while in forza cars are standing still.
I gotta say though NFS does look better but does it play better?

Marceles5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

thanks, damn...that's a time saver then. Put the camera close so you don't have to model that much lower than the dashboard.

I have been playing Shift since it came out and its beautiful in every aspect.It plays smoothly and the ranking system is fantastic.I have played the demo for forza3 and I was completely dissapointed.Everything was like living in a plastic world.Not very detailed cars either.The engine there using looks like the cod series, which made things even worst.I know its just the demo and not the finished project or I least hope its not but it gives me an idea of what to expect which will be dissapointment.Thank EA for doing the right thing with its series and putting themselves back on the map until gt5 arrives.

Forza 3 > Shift in every aspect.

The PS3 version even outsold the 360 version.

Simply shows the 360 community has chosen FORZA 3. Not bothering with Shift.

The PS3 community...well...they're playing Shift...not like they have the choice...

EvilBlackCat5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

Comparing Shift vs Forza3 and say Shift is Better is just stupid. Forza3 is more of a simulator than what Shift is and trust me is not a sim. IMHO i believe that one of the things you must not do while racing in real life is take a time looking inside your vehicle while taking corners. Why the need to look down when you know when and how to shift?

JokesOnYou5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

The F3 demo eats Shift for lunch....thats why 360 owners haven't bothered with Shift with F3 right around the corner. As for the ps3 fanboys above who follow F3, you got to forgive them, after PD saw all the features F3 was bringing to the table they knew GT5 wasn't ready to compete with F3 so all that "we can release anytime" BS was just hype, now once again the irrational extremists are directing all their anger as usual at another great 360 game. Its not micro/Turn10's fault GT5 probably won't be out here until at least next summer or longer, well then again maybe it is Turn10's fault in a way, seeing as GT is finally throwing in some damage. So now I guess they're pretty much forced to hype Shift, they can't even lie and scream "I'm buying the PC version", its very sad....how empty they must feel.

Still its strange how the "ps3 fanboys" love to hate all the great 360 games. -Well this explains that mentality very well.

"Fact: PS3 fanboys are the worst"
"Xbox 360 Fanboys support the Xbox 360 by LIKING the Xbox 360.
PS3 Fanboys support the PS3 by HATING the Xbox 360."

-lol, See all you jealous extremist on the next post about another great 360 game.

Shift looks amazing.

Forza 3 ... not so much. So much for "we dont do bull-shots!"

Biggest differences:

Modeling: Shift has smoother curves. Some interior parts that are modeled with 3D polygons in Shift are just painted 2D textures in Forza.
Textures: Shift has better textures
Shaders: Unlike Forza 3, Shift's interior doesnt look like it's all made from the same plastic

In forza 3's favor, having been spanked in every visual category by Shift, is that it's running at literally twice the frame-rate (effectively twice the resolution). This means despite being aesthetically inferior it maybe technically on par or even better than Shift. Sadly the compromises required to run at 60fps are just too many.

Most disappointing is that the developers (in Microsoft tradition), overpromised and underdelivered.

Graphics are not the best of available games
Polygons are not 10x Forza 2
Textures don't appear to be uniformly 4x Forza 2
Damage is still unrealistic
Still only 8 cars
Lots of jaggies

Thanks to whomever posted this video:


Bloody amazing footage from actual 60fps gameplay (not replay or photomode). Incredible. Not flawless but very close. Even more incredible is that it's doing this in a 16 car race at 60fps at a 50% higher resolution than Forza 3 and effectively 3 times the resolution of Shift.

NFS Shift looks less plastic.

simplyRealistic185407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

your an idiot, in every aspect, you can clearly see it looks better, just because people choose an exclusive doesn't mean it better, this is like taking candy from a baby, they should of compare NFS:shift to gt5 instead, i know most people didn't buy because Forza is coming out,

i for 1 played the demo and was disappointed people can actually compare that to GT5 let alone GT5:p

xTruthx5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

Ah, jokes on you, your so ignorant and blind. Not gonna waste time looking at the uncharted two, GT5 and Quantom theory articles to show you how wrong you are. A fanboy is a fanboy, and they act the same in any console, saying what you said just makes you look worst than most fb's in here. You can stay blind and ignorant but that isn't healthy, and acting like that for a peace of plastic is even more sad. I hope you find more important things than a gaming system.

HolyOrangeCows5407d ago (Edited 5407d ago )

But NFS makes me feel claustrophobic, the way it's so far from the window (I don't care if it IS more realistic, it still makes me feel claustrophobic)

Gran Turismo 5 comes in March. Keep dreaming, cold.

IcyJoker1875407d ago

Joy is predictable now, I also find it pretty stupid he thinks the only ones saying Shift is better than Forza are Sony "Loyalists".

Ju5407d ago

Well, well. So, that's how it looks without bullshots, eh ? Thought so. Somebody got debunked. Especially if you open your mouth like T10. Its what I was expecting, though. I'm not saying what's better, but both are very close, IMO. I say it again, NFS:S is a great game, and got totally ignored by because of the F3 propaganda. Funny, huh, and people thought it will have a rough competition on the PS3. Guess what. It sells more there - and GT5 will still sell.
