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.

Joule3191d ago

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.

PoSTedUP3191d 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.

RedDragan3190d 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.

Ch1d0r13190d 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.

colonel1793191d 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.

Blaine3191d 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.

cjflora3191d ago

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

jeseth3190d ago

It's about time. It's nice to see the PS3 finally getting some meat on its bones.

raztad3191d ago

about time? you skipped 2008-9?

scofios3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

Actually the ps3 showed its power in 2007 with heavenly sword and uncharted 1.
And after that it got better and better .

RedDragan3190d ago

And the original Motorstorm, scofios.

RedDragan3190d ago

And everyone forgets the nuclear bomb that is....



Cloudberry3190d ago

Please don't forget YAKUZA 4 in Spring 2011.

MexicanAppleThief3191d ago

I love the massive jump in power PS3 exclusives have, thats why I love these sequels. I wonder how Uncharted 3 is going to look like? :D

SeanRL3191d ago

Uncharted 2 pushed the ps3's limits didn't it? I think it's time to focus more on gameplay now that they are so good with graphics.

Not that Uncharted 2 didn't have good gameplay! :)

Holeran3191d ago

It may have pushed the ps3's limits at the time but every year they get better and better at codeing so I expect uncharted3 to look even better than 2. Whenever you hear those words "we have gone as far as we can go with this hardware" bypass it all together until you see what can really be done with it.

dkgshiz3190d ago

Every new PS3 exclusive gets better graphically each time.

gameseveryday3191d ago

I think so the most amazing jump visually in two years was Uncharted to Uncharted 2. Not only the visual level, but the animations. If anyone of you actually look how Drake moved in the first one and how he moved in the sequel, that should be enough evidence that visuals is a combination of right color combination + great animation + great lip sync + greater study of human body so that developers can actually represent that in the games.

GoodSpeed3191d ago

I just finished UC:DF a few days ago, and I forget how much UC2 progressed from the original. Although UC is a great game, UC2 completely expands on every aspect of the first game and makes it better. And the animations definitely improved from game 1 to 2.

TrevorPhillips3191d ago

I don't know how Uncharted 3 will look like but I can say this, I assure you that it'll blow our minds away thats for sure :)

mrv3213191d ago

Motorstorm 1 still looks great, go back and play it... a few areas like fire could do with work but they game still looks great.

GoodSpeed3191d ago

Especially when you hit parts of the track with the mud, kicking dirt and debris all over your vehicle. I always drove with the interior view to get the full effect and it was intense.
