Motorstorm Apocalypse versus Motorstorm Pacific Rift: HD screen shot comparison

GB writes: "Evolution Studios have always been at the forefront of creating visually impressive games. They have already proved that they can create some of the most visually appealing racers, as evident with the first two iterations of Motorstorm. Now with the third game in the series, the developers are trying something unique, the game will be set in an post-apocalyptic world. So how much has the series evolved visually since the last game in 2008? Let’s take a look."

The playstation 3 is again showing its muscle. Man Sony always takes it to the next level every time, every year. Wonder we will ever need a PS4 for the next 5 years lol.

Wow improvements in Playstation exclusives are just crazy Uncharted to Uncharted 2, inFmamous to infamous 2 now this. The playstation is not aging as it gets older its getting better and better.

PoSTedUP5080d ago

they picked screens from MS:PR where, the sun, the mist from the waterfall, and the dust all cover up most of the good graphics (i use to play this game every day so i would know the levels they chose)

motorstormPR has amazing graphics, these screens do not justify them. and i don't think MS3 is going to be that big of a leap in graphics due to MS:PR having stunning realistic graphics already.
im not trying to complain but i could have picked out much better looking screenshots from MS:PR.

cant wait for MS3 tho the game is going to be crazy.

RedDragan5080d ago

The motorstorm series has never been given the praise it deserves for it's graphics.

The first one still wipes the floor with all other off-road racers that followed, yet the ones that followed some how got higher ratings on the graphics front.

It's a bit of a sham really.

Ch1d0r15080d ago

Graphics should be the given w/ ps3. Just make the game fun. Which is what it truly needs. That is why it doesn't get the respect it deserves. I recently played MS:PR and it is boring as hell, it is not even challenging. Somehow i enjoyed the Dirt 2 demo more than the full version of any Motorstorm.

I'm guessing we'll have a ps4 by 2013-14, 7-8 years into the ps3's life cycle. Sony may not be eager to release a new console just yet but I don't think they want to let the xbox 720 gain too much of a lead.

colonel1795080d ago

It would be a disadvantage if the release the PS4 shortly after the next xbox, but if they release it 2 or more years after, then it won't be. I think the PS3 is in the situation where 3rd party developers don't want to take advantage of the ps3 power because they can make a similar game on the 360 and it's cheaper for them.

If the ps4 launches way after the xbox 3, and it has way more power, then the difference will be obvious and the xbox 3 would feel old, having the developers get more attention and making games that even if they are on the xbox 3 the difference this time would be very noticeable.

Blaine5080d ago

I don't think next gen will boil down to which has the best hardware. It'll be a combination of hardware, and ease of programing--especially if Sony joins the fight extra late.

Look at past gens: PS2 crushed the original Xbox even though its hardware was nowhere near as powerful, mostly because the console was already so established (and remember, it wasn't particularly easy to program for either). In this gen, Sony is really using their name to pull through, and the 1st party devs are doing an amazing job to provide us with quality titles, but most of the third party devs prefer the 360's easier development platform.

Next gen, if Sony can have hardware as good or better than MS, but also have a console that is as easy or even easier to develop for, then that's how they're going to win.

cjflora5080d ago

I guess when it comes to power and graphics, the PS3 only has itself to compete with now.
