the graphics gap is getting bigger and bigger and we are still far from next gen according to analysts, Sony, EA, MS, and devs.

GT5 = photorealism good enough for PS4

it only does everything

tacosRcool5019d ago

yes. Old DX9 level graphics not good enough anymore. Dude we have DX11 graphics and do you see how cool tessellation looks?!?!

lonix5019d ago (Edited 5019d ago )

Ps3 does not use dx9 level graphics it uses OpenGL

Dx10 was a waste of time and dx11 isn't much better

Joule5019d ago

I don't understand why people don't see Heavy Rain having one of the best graphics? They are so good, people must be blind

reload445019d ago

Heavy Rain - most realistic character design
Gran Turismo 5 - photoreality
Uncharted 2 - best art design and animations
Killzone 2 - best interactivity and atmosphere
Metal Gear Solid 4 - best ingame cutscenes
Final Fantasy 13 - best CGI cutscenes
God of War 3 - god of graphics

upcoming games The Last Guardian, Killzone 3, InFamous 2 will change the situation

kingteekej5019d ago

It is not out yet!!! And can you all (alot on this forum) please stop saying "it only does (insert)/everything in the end of every comment. We get that the ps3 does more than whats required of an entertainment system, but its so irritating that people buy so much inn to sonys commercials, that they are literally promoting everything that comes from sonys corner without even trying it.

PS: Waiting for GT5

SeanRL5019d ago

Yes, a PS4 is needed, it will probably make another step by being smaller, more powerful(same graphics but more stuff going on), maybe even holograms. It's needed, just not quite yet.

bjornbear5019d ago (Edited 5019d ago )

guys - I agree GT5 looks better than most games out there, and HR is also quasi photo realistic

but consider a game that is:

open world / free roam/ huge (say oblivion size or even GTAIV size) and then try having those graphics

THATS why we'll need PS4/new xbox/new PC tech - and other tech - the PS3 can achieve mind boggling quality graphics, but at a price.

you don't have games like infamous looking like GT5 (YET - infamous 2 is looking en par with Uncharted 2 which does still make me all giddy)

tbh, when I think graphics and power, I consider not only LOOKS and POLYCOUNT, but how its used

I loved HR, and it looks AMAZING, but I (and everyone else here should be too) am aware that it was a VERY limited game. things were generally static and quite enclosed.

the day we have a PS3 game that looks as good as HR/GT5 and is open world like Infamous and you can go inside most buildings and MOST objects are movable with HAVOK and so on, to have photorealistic open world levels with procedural destruction

(that not even crysis 2 has fully - you can't destroy a whole sky scraper piece by piece ala Red Faction Guerrilla now can you)

etc...then we won't need a PS4...but i doubt a game like that will ever work this gen on console, maybe next?

Its actually amazing just how much better GT5 looks compared to prologue

BrianB5019d ago

Gears of War 3 tops all of them imo

8-bit5019d ago

Wow that was a great laugh. Thanks for this

AKS5019d ago

I just thought I'd add that MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is massively underrated and frequently overlooked. It's an absolutely gorgeous game.

And yet graphics continue to be one of the least important factors in determining a game's quality.

acedoh5018d ago

most of these games are excellent quality. SONY has proven they can make a great product and although many were impatient when it came to these games they are here and for real and only getting better.

Are the best and I dont even hav a ps3 LOL

plb5019d ago

For me, it's between GoW III and Uncharted 2.

Eazy-Eman5019d ago

Wait 'till Uncharted 3 comes out. But wow, if you think about it, Uncharted 2 represents the pinnacle of graphics on a Ps3. Imagine what a next-gen Uncharted would look like;Lavish jungles,beautiful scenery,unprecedented textures...oh god I'll stop there!

Areeb115019d ago

God of War 3 is Sony's Biggest Franchise. It is a part of Sony itself. Uncharted can never achieve the old school status of GT5 or GoW3 or even Twisted Metal.

and one another thing. when you are playing uc2 next time take your ak 47 and just zoom in on any random texture.. it doesnt look that amazing at all. its just the colour palette and lighting is amazing.

and lastly: Poseidon Boss Fight. Nuff said.

BkaY5016d ago

that was just mind blowing....

for me

heyheyhey5019d ago

I'd have put Valkyria Chronicles somewhere in there, due to the exquisite art style
