3 Games that can show what the PS3 can do

Forums - Sony Discussion - 3 Games that can show what the PS3 can do

Uncharted 2 (Amazing visuals and animations with brilliant physics and set pieces not seen before)
Killzone 2 (Good use of rendering techniques that take advantage of PS3 architecture + very good A.I)
Heavenly Sword (sheer number of units and the AI being cleverly optimised for the Cell processor)

Honourable mentions: Metal Gear Solid 4 (full use of blu ray) and God of War III

Here I'll spell it out for you worst case scenario even.

PS3 uber game runs @ 720P

Xbox 360 runs said game @ 25% lower resolution which proportionally frees up 25% of the shader performance, which is ~70Gflops worth.

Xbox 360 can run said uber game, but just at a lower resolution.

Thus your 50Gflops deficit are accounted for and the Xbox 360 can run said game.

Dude, you just proved my point. I wasn't trying to say that the 360 can't play those games, but rather it can't play those games at the same level of scale. You would have to water down the super-uber game for it to work on the 360. 

Nope. I said worst case scenario, the reality is infact somewhere between the two. Until multiplatform games show any advantage, let alone a decisive advantage for the PS3 in terms of frame-rates/visual effects the verdict remains that they are about the same computationally. Besides this every game is watered down to some extent, even exclusives relative to what my PC is capable of so im not sure why some marginal difference needs to be over-exagerated.

It's still a pretty good difference between the two. Anyway, I keep hearing the same argument over and over again from whatever website or forum I visit. That its the multiplats that make the difference. In my opinion, I don't really think that multiplatform games could really show the public a decisive difference/advantage for any console. I would have to compare the exclusives. That's just my opinion. I don't really think the PS3 can take whatever software you give to it and transform it to some uber game. That's just not possible without taking that software and optimizing it specifically for that console. 

What did you say last gen when the annoying Xbox fanatics bragged about the amazing graphics of the Xbox and system quality compared to the PS2?

I get what you're saying but I doubt PS2 fans were concerned with it's quality of games last gen. Highly doubt it.

Exactly. This gen it seems to be graphics over true gaming substance for the Sony fanclub much like it was for the Xbox fanclub last gen. For me it never changed...great games are great games no matter which system. Last gen everytime a multiplat game came out on the PS2 and the Xbox the Xbox fanboys claimed the Xbox title was either visibly head and shoulders above or it was watered down. I wish Sony and Microsoft both would just create visibly computers and get it over with so both sides could just shut up. I wont really blame techies for jumping ship to the PS3 because they follow which ever system is more powerful (I notice tech fanatics have an issue with system power), but I really do blame Sony fanatics for not staying strong with what made Sony so great. They sound exactly like the guys they argued against.

P.S.

Quality has never been an issue for Sony. They have good companies making games for them. Almost every exclusive they have visually compliments their hardware. The 360 on the other hand is just getting into exclusive console pleasing software after Forza 3.

 

Fair enough.



                                                                                                                                            

All this talk just proves SONYs 1st & 2nd party are insainly brillient!



Playing and finishing games first>>>>>>>>>>Then talking!

Opinions are subjective and just like moods, can change.

TOP 12: Deus Ex, Shadow Man, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturn, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Metroid Prime, Zelda (series), Uncharted (series), FF Tactics, Persona (series), Demons Souls, Vagrant Story.

MOST WANTED: Deus Ex: Human Revolution, The Last Guardian, ICO/Shadow OTC HD

Flower (showing a good use of six-axis controls as well as being the most beautiful downloadable title I've played)

Demon's Souls (mostly to showcase how the increased online functionality of this gen's consoles allow for new ideas and cool implementations of online systems that meld single player and multiplayer into one seemlessly)

Uncharted 2 (Best graphics I've seen on a console thus far as far as the full package goes, also showcases that a game that has amazing graphics doesn't have to suffer in other aspects)



...

I would pick Uncharted 2, GOW3, and for the third one, something very different, like Flower, to show more different stuff

Have we not played God of War III yet Mr. Torillian?

I did, hence why I said "full package" since God of War 3 definitely has the best looking single character (Kratos) but the rest of the game is not as good looking as Uncharted 2 and has obvious blemishes where as U2 had none that I noticed.

Did you not look at the environments closely? Sweet Jesus, they look absolutely stunning, bump mapping everyhwere and much more anti-aliasing than Uncharted 2. Ah well, I guess it's all on preference.

Dude....I know it is rare for me to talk about graphics, but GOW3 had way better graphical models than U2. The enemies graphics were brilliant all the way down to Zeus.



The first Uncharted, for its time spoke volumes, same with Ratchet & Clank ToD. That's 1 full year after the PS3 launched, a little late indeed, but not much when you consider the 360 only had Gears (as exclusive) and then had to wait for Gears 2 to get more of the same (no, Mass Effect and Halo 3 are not technically impressive).

 

Right now there are 3 games that are untoachable : MGS4 (2008) , Uncharted 2 (2009), God of War 3 (2010).

 

VERY Strong runner-ups:  Killzone 2, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (yes, it still amazes more than any other racer, technically).

 

I wish to add, none of those games are quite possible on multiple discs, perphas you could do it for MGS4 ("maybe"***?)... the others are just impossible.
