Where are the 1080p @ 60fps games?

It's more than likely that the 1080p are a mistake on Eurogamers side.


I would consider it possible, not likely.

This is very good if it's indeed true!

I'd consider it pretty likely, cause as I've already posted there are 2 sites that said at the same day that the game is 720p. Also all screenshots for the game are 720p, don't you think that's a bit odd?

It is, but it also wouldn't be the first time I've seen a game get a resolution buff not long before its release.

Already did but why would I need to? the discussion is graphics, wich only have to be seen. MK8 is much more graphically impressive than any ps360 game and that's not a discussion.

As big as a Mario Kart fan i am, there's no way you have played the best offerings of the PS3 and 360 to make a statement like that.  So your saying that it looks better then games like 

 

The Last of Us

Uncharted 2 or 3

Tomb Raider

Gears of War 3

Alan Wake

Halo 4

Beyond Two Souls

If you think those games look better than MK8, you are forced to say they look better than ps4 titles too or else it's hypocrisy.

I don't own a PS4 or an Xbox One at this time so i couldn't make that statement (I'd probably say they do look better then any PS4 game at this time though even if i did) but this is about you saying Mario Kart 8 looked twice as good as any PS3/360 game and those are a few games i have played on both those consoles that i would consider to look as good or better then MK8. You can't compare games like these to a kart racer that is more meant for fun and gameplay then pretty realistic graphics.

 

Either way sir, you have your opinion and i don't want to take this thread away from the TC's original discussion so i'll end this little chat before it gets out of hand :D Have a good day!

realistic graphics? this is about GRAPHICS, and MK8 pushes it a lot more than ps360 ever could. if you want to talk about opinion, you can say you prefer those ps3 games but that's it.

To achive proper realism, you need better AA, more complex geometry and character models, superior lightning and physics, waay more detailed (and thus bigger) textures, more realistic (and thus more demanding) animations, motion capture and much more polygons. There is also stuff like particle effects and clothing animation. Did I really have to explain this?

Except for textures and a certain extent of character models, all of that could be done in a cartoony game. You're talking about effort put into the game period, which, as i said, is a factor that cartoony games tend to be lower-budget on the whole. They do not have to be.


A cartoony game is more than just art style, simple animations etc etc are a staple of cartoony things also.  Is for example how one anime can be cartoony, and another reaistic.  Fact is, Mario Kart has none or next to none of the above.  So if it does 1080p/60fps it isn't really as much an accomplishment as say, GT6 doing it.  Mario Kart is more in line with Wipeout HD, which was also 1080p 60fps.

Lot of Ninty fans being defensive in this thread saying it looks great, but no real arguments why it does.  They just like the artstyle, and some are probably not used to seeing Nintendo games in HD so there will be a noticable clarity in visuals from those who been playing MK Wii.

What they really should be defending is SSBU, mixing in some more human/realistic characters with the cartoony ones really shows how awful it looks, unlike MK where everything matches.

Nothing on ps360 is even half as impressive as mario kart 8.

Try playing a PS3/360 game before saying something like this.

The Last of Us

Uncharted 2 or 3

Tomb Raider

Gears of War 3

Alan Wake

Halo 4

Beyond Two Souls

To be fair, none of those are arcade racers and mostly are corridors a la RE4.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


Who cares?

I really don't see why ya'll get so much out of 720p vs 1080p. I'd bet you wouldn't notice the difference on nearly all of your TVs.

In terms of what, pray tell? Where is the proof that realism is technically more demanding than cartoon graphics, except that realism might demand more complex textures?

...

...

seriously now?

Cartoony games tend to have lower production values not because of their choice of art style, but because of a factor related to the dreaded "Animation Age Ghetto". There's nothing to suggest that such games are categorically inferior, just that they tend to be lower-budget on the balance.

Which was more impressive? Super Mario Galaxy 2 or No More Heroes 2?

Of course it can be done on a cartoony game, but all of them are waay more harder amd demanding on a realistic game than a cartoony game, which was the point of my post and what you asked.

Aso, I heard a statement from some tech industry big shot that somewhere around 5 TFlops are required for a photorealistc game, which again proves that better than realism = more demanding power
