A video showing both the 3DS and PS2 versions of Snake Eater. Go on and decide which platform plays it better.
I'm shocked how good the 3DS looks, although stereoscopic 3D still doesn't have me sold. I'm really interested to see how the Vita pans out over E3.
Why are people saying 3ds looks worse than the ps2 ver? cus it is sincerelly not, also noticed how the ps2 box was smaller and bad compressed, darker unvivid colors while the 3ds all the contrary. Anyway, kojima already told there will be further version coming to ngp, from zone of ender and metal gear hd collection, both having tranfaring, ngp is the obvious winner lol. And no, if snake eater is what we are talking boutta of, 3d aint adding sht to it, shame it is essential.
Adding mini QTEs and features utilizing the 3DS is cool. I like the photo camo feature. But overall the 3D is not impressive and the slightest movements turn the 3D into a giant headache.
So... by producing PS2-like graphics the 3DS is.. the PSP undercover?! /joke I'm sure the 3DS has new games that looks stunning, but this looked very identical to me (3DS somewhat sharper, some re-touched textures), not that impressive IMO. Sorry =(
the 3ds is a beast but im still shocked the ps2 looks this good for such an old system... well old in tech years.... no take that back old period.... e3 cant wait... project cafe gonna end the console war until 2013
PS2 version is better. The foilage is better and the lighting seems to be better. There was better animation or physics for the backpack before jumping out of the plane. Other than that It is close I mean very close but not quite.
This is not really a fair comparison as you can't see the 3D effects on the 3DS version. Best bet: find it in your local store and try it on the real 3DS system. It's a trade-off between graphics and 3D effects.
There should be 3D videos available on the eShop in 3 days... I don't think that has much to do with it though. My complaints would be about the lack of colour saturation. Especially in the faces near the start.
3D effects aren't going to make the game look "better", simply "different". So yes, viewing the side-by-sides in 2D is not only completely fair, but the standard at which 3DS games should be measured considering 3D is merely a feature, not a requirement. One which some don't prefer, and others can't even utilize.
PS2 looks better IMO
It does. It's easy to say the 3DS is "up to par" when the screen is so small.
In SOME cases it looks as good or even better, but around 28 seconds, the guys flapping suit does look a LOT better on the 3DS. I don't like the Red-heads hair on the 3DS as much, but the white haired guy (Snake?) looks better on 3DS. Not to mention the cockpit looks smoother.
lol, if you're referring to the old man with the grey hair and a scar his face, that is not Snake. That's Zero.
@Eamon Sorry, not big of a MGS story follower, only have MGS4 and can't get into it. I'm such a failure at sneaking around >.<
Thats the only bit that I thought looked better
I think they look about the same really, and that's without the 3D... even if the 3DS is no NGP, it's still a pretty powerful system. This is a port of an old game and it looks good, so I'm waiting to see developers actually push the system to its limits.
PS2 version is slightly more detailed and sharper, which is weird cause I remember the very first 3DS-PS2 comparison with the 3DS version looking much better. But I'm sure the 3D effect will make it look much better. EDIT: Snakes flapping jacket looks a lot better on 3DS, just noticed.
I was thinking the same thing. I've seen screenshots where the 3ds version was clearly superior. This one (especially the screenshot)the ps2 looks a bit better apart from a thing or two.
Its the resolution that makes it look sharper. There are about 4x as many pixels in the original PS2 image, and a downsampled clip will make it look like everything is cleaner, similar to having a really good AA technique.
While I admire the conversion has retained much of the sheen from the original PS2 release, the 3DS version is still a bit on the flat side. Some missing textures, flat foliage in the forest canopy, and some issues with reflective surfaces. I suppose I'd give it a pass considering it's an almost picture-perfect port, with the addition of Autostereoscopic 3D. Then again...two analog sticks and the freedom to sit comfortably in a couch without keeping my arms firmly planted, yeah, I'll wait it out for the HD Collection. That said, any 3DS owners who haven't played this game are in for a real treat.
The ONLY thing that looked better on the 3DS version was the cloths shaking in the wind. Everything else looked better IMO on the PS2 version. I'm not really surprised since the 3DS isn't that powerful.
It's not wise to judge a system's power from a PORT. Ports will never look as good as a game built ground-up for the system. Look at Resident Evil Revelations for instance.
"I'm not really surprised since the 3DS isn't that powerful." The 3DS "IS" pretty powerful for a handheld device, especially a Nintendo handheld. It may not be as powerful as the NGP, but it's still powerful in its own right. Clearly the best game that shows that is Resident Evil: http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... And Campcom even said there not using all of the power of the 3DS: http://nintendo3dsblog.com/... Comparing Resident Evil for the 3DS to the DS version is like night and day, so it shows it's power has increased specifically: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
those vids look amazing id be satisfied with a handheld that consistently had those graphics
PS2 looks like it have more brighter colors and the 3DS doesn't. Other then that, they look pretty much the same. Don't really care because I'm waiting for a Mario game to come out to waste money on a 3DS.
I think the PS2 version looks far better. The colors from the 3DS are far to washed and it also seemed that the 3DS version was missing some of the lighting effects. eh, just my 2 cents.
Honestly I don't even care which one looks better, I'm just surprised by the fact that one of the biggest games of the previous console generation is running on a handheld. I wonder how it would have looked on the PSVita, but since it's getting a PS3/Xbox HD remaster, it'll never happen. It will be interesting to see how good the graphics will look on 3DS/PSVita 3 or 4 years from now.
ahhahahahaahahaha LOOK THIS!! http://n4g.com/news/611164/...
Some nice animation improvements on the 3DS, like the flapping jacket, but its missing lens flare, and seems to be missing some depth-of-field effects later on, as well. Also seems like some of the foliage is missing in the 3DS version. The PS2 version does look crisper, as well.. but then its a higher rez image... It's still impressive that the 3DS can pull this off, and with only a 266 MHz processor (the OS reserves the other one). The 133 MHz Pica200 GPU has a decent amount of muscle, to look nearly as good as a PS2 game, and in 3D, to boot. That said, look at the difference between Portable Ops and Peace Walker, on the PSP. Clearly the 3DS will have better looking titles down the road. Peace Walker looks amazing, even compared to the 3DS MGS3.
I think that when people are debating whether a nintendo handheld can generate graphics as good as a PS2 then something is going right
Looks pretty close but the PS2 version looks better.
Looks ok for a last gen game running on a handheld. Needs better textures,etc.
