UE4 ones do look better. But meh I'm more interested in seeing ND's next engine..


I think the RED engine is going to be better than both, and I never really liked the ND's engine that much I think it's a little overhyped but God of war 3 engine is amazing

This is what I'm hoping next gen looks like:

Those UE4 screens don't even impress me much more than the best looking PS3 game as seen in the following in-game/real-time shots (maybe it's just the art style?):

And that's their first attempt on the PS3 vs. 4 from ND and 2 from GG. God of War: Ascension is said to be the same step up from 3 as 2 was over 1 graphically, so expect a huge improvement over what already looks amazing when the game releases in spring next year. Next gen is going to have to look near-CGI to really impress gamers, and I doubt it will, those UE4 shots certainly don't but the Samaritan tech demo does.


*looks at screens you posted of GoW3* *Looks at screens of Ue4*
*sigh* *Shakes head*
The difference is so big I don't even know where to begin. 



Turkish says and I'm allowed to quote that: Uncharted 3 and God Of War 3 look better than Unreal Engine 4 games will or the tech demo does. Also the Naughty Dog PS3 ENGINE PLAYS better than the UE4 ENGINE.

Ue4 looks good certainly, but I don't think it looks miles better like some have been claiming.



This coming generation is going to really define the difference between the more casual core players and the hardcore core players. As technology increases, the improved effect people see is diminished. Only those who truly look critically at games and take the effort to notice the detail will see the vast differences - everyone else will only notice moderate improvements in the screens.

Also, the difference should be more apparent when you see actual gameplay videos of high profile games running on the UE4 vs those currently on the PS3.



UE4 screens do look better. But it is not the same jump from let's say God of War 2 and God of War 3. HUGE jump there. God of War 3 felt like something entirely different after playing God of War 2. This generation saw the best jump in terms of visuals but it seems that we will only see incremental changes in future generations.

Just wanted to let you know that you're comparing the UE3 there. That's not the UE4. You can check out the UE3 tech demo, that you took pictures from, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSXyztq_0uM

 

UE4 is an entirely new beast.



Gilgamesh - you should know by now that comparing a future engine to PS3 exclusives, and then praising said PS3 exclusives in the same topic, will invite a feeding frenzy of negativity towards your view. I thought you knew this?

To me, the Unreal Engine 4 shots are VERY impressive, but the PS3 titles you compared it to still remain in their own class for current gen. Of course the UE4 looks better (rez, textures, and draw distance all have their fair share of advantages over current gen consoles), but I can't jump up and down for this engine without a game to get excited for. It's the same reason why I haven't gone all crazy for David Cage's Kara - the engine is fantastic, but there's no game to tag along with it yet.



                                                                                                                                                           

It is noticably better, but it's not like the same jump that we saw from the 6th to 7th generations

It seems some people see a big improvement and some don't.

Those who are care about and are knowledgeable on the technical side of things see a huge improvement because they love all the real-time effects and such while to those only interested in the perceived difference don't see as that big of an improvement in their eyes.

I can definitely see why some have trouble seeing it as a huge jump since to some it doesn't look like like the instantly noticeable gap between UE2 and UE3 when it was revealed. Back then no one had to point out graphical effects to show UE3's superiority because it was immediately noticeable from UE2's flat blockiness.



Just diminishing returns I guess.

Or maybe some had really high expectations thanks to mark Rein saying it would make Samaritan look lik a joke.

Still, next gen games having this kind of graphical fidelity would be sweet, especially with a sexy artstyle.



I think if you can make a comparison that says it's not that much better in a tech demo vs exclusive ps3 games tailored specifically to the platform, then I'd say Epic has succeeded and actual games will be miles better, if the engines is able to run in high quality modes on puny consoles.
