Wow.. The guys over at Santa Monica Studios & Ready At Dawn Studios weren’t lying. God of War: Ghost of Sparta is really putting the PSP through it’s paces as you can clearly see in the video below.. Check it out!
Nothing less from Santa Monica :p
Ready at Dawn. Credit where credit is due.
Santa Monica and Ready at Dawn worked on it. Credit to them both.
I'm surprised they haven't used the "can't be done anywhere else" line yet.
wait for it...
I gotta say, it looks even better than GOW1 on the PS2.
well.. im sure they know your 360 would have no problem running this now that it used 100% less cpu power
Ok time to move on to PSP2
I didn't know Sony Santa Monica made PSP games......... Ready at Dawn however make great PSP games.
Lets just say SM and RaD are both amazing!
100%? I believe it. Im 3 hours in and it looks awesome. Tons of stuff going on all the time onscreen, and the lighting is very well done. Also playing with super bass headphone sound crazy. Loving the game so far.
are u suggesting it can be done on the DS?
I'm just saying this is complete BS and a sequel would look and run better. Does that mean the game will be using 130% of the PSP?
Tetris can use 100% of the CPU. I hate it when devs say this. Unless they come out and say their code, at it's current state is taking up 100% of the CPU's cycles, then it's all PR talk. There is *always* room for improvement. I'm sure PS2 could be cranking out games that look better than launch 360 titles no problem if devs stayed focused on that console still. Code is ALL about optimization.
it shows on screen ... but the battery energy of my psp was sucked at an alarming rate ... ( or was it the time that felt short ? ) awesome game ..
Impressive! This is not a one word comment
Hmmm, this is not an eight word comment......Now.
Damn pirates not even giving the game a chance. You better make sure to buy the game and support the developers. If you got an early/leaked store copy then that's fine, disregard my comment. At least it was bought.
Pirates are the scums of entertainment.
no they are smart poeple who know good cost cutting measures to continue to enjoy gameing in this economic climate
pirates ruined the PSP.
No pirates are lazy leeches that suck off the rest of society. They make it hard for the people making our games to keep creating great experiences for us. Pirates are scum that think they deserve something for nothing.
2 analog sticks a little better textures and graphics power a little better battery life and great launch titles with a good price i think maybe $249 if they go 3d and or touch screen i will stay away from that just because i am not fan of either
implying you would have ot use the touch screen or 3d
If you release a handheld devise that isnt touch screen your pretty silly. It doesnt have to be used as the only input method, but it offers your device far more options now and in the future.
If God Of War can be this good on PSP just imagine when Ready At Dawn make the next handheld God of War game for the PSP2.
...to have a touch screen. Not so much for gaming but for any apps.
Pre-ordered my copy today, this is a beast game! Haven't bought a game for my PSP in ages, and I was a bit skeptical, but this, this looks like it will be worth it. Between this and Fable 3, I'm set for a bit. Least till Nov 9th that is ...
PSP2 i guess.
Ive never understood how they determine these %'s. Sounds more like marketing garbage than anything else. Game looks fantastic though.
Rather easily, they'll be able to track CPU loads, much like you can at home on your own PC. Obviously software helps squeeze more out at the same percentage, but I'd imagine they've got their PSP code about as good as it can be now.
I'm guessing the CPU load was the % on the right top of the screen. It was fluctuating a lot.
A good swan song then, time to show off that new shiny PSP2.
Pre-ordered today. This will pull me away from MAG for a week or so.
This game is very impressive considering it's running on a handheld that first released in Japan almost 6 years ago.
Kinda hard not to use 100% of the CPU, when there's only one CPU. The "using X%" thing really is only applicable to multithreaded hardware.
i hope PSP2 can play psp games....then ill wait for it then get the game xD
these two development houses have done a remarkable job. i am enjoying this gem right now. i like to pull out the psp when grocery shopping with the mrs. while she talks, i am busy destroying foes at the checkout counter.
i miss my psp so much. last one i had was 2 years ago but i kept dropping it and didn't want to repair it again so i threw it away. i loved the games i had for it though. loco roco was so fun. RFD.
As far as graphics go, it is the only psp game to use ambient occulsion. Not even ps2 games used it. Quite honestly it looks better than GOW2.
That is definitely gorgeous! I feel sad that T3B isn't gonna look like this xD I think
