Forums - Gaming Discussion - No Other Console Game this Gen Will match Crysis Graphics(56k)!

Just curious if there are still people coming in here trying to argue that Crysis isn't the best looking game ever made?

It isn't a console game.



Heavens to Murgatoids.

@sc94597, Vlad.

yes PC's are more powerful. yes crysis has the most amazing shaders and it looks drop dead gorgeous. But the OP "was will any console game look as good as crysis"..

Now lets examine a fact from that IGN article someone posted. When the game released in 2007, most people could barely run it on low/medium settings and ultra high was impossible. its been over a year since its been out now and you have the
ATI 4xxxx x2 series etc and more powerful processors so these ultra high settings are possible.

Next year, you may very well have them release a super ultra high patch that makes it even more ridiculously real. But is that a fair comparison? since PC hardware evolves constantly, its easier for developers to just release a game and wait for hardware to catch up. Plus most people who bought crysis had powerful PC's to begin with. That is not the case with the xbox/ps3. Comparisons with medium settings, games like alan wake and KZ2 are nearing the PC level of realism. Sure it may never get there but it can get close. GT5 looks pretty damn real to me..more so than NFS on the PC

So yea, Console games may never look as pretty as Crysis on ultra high settings, but it can and will compete on medium ones and hopefully the high settings as well before the end of this hardware cycle.



Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

5 THINGS I'd like to see before i knock out:

a. a AAA 3D sonic title

b. a nintendo developed game that has a "M rating"

c. redesgined PS controller

d. SEGA back in the console business

e. M$ out of the OS business

the consoles will never beat the PC NEVER



On topic: I agree with HappySquirrel and a couple others who believe that there will be console games that, for all practical purposes, at least match Crysis. We'll see how FFXIII and Killzone 2 measure up, but even if they don't, later in this gen it WILL happen.

can the 360 run gears at full 1080p with 60fps .. ofcorse not but the PC can
can Killzone 2 run at 1080p with 60fps in the PS3 ? ... ofcorce not.



Can the PC run your mom?

I'm iwlling to bet money on the fact that it WILL NOT happen this gen, it won't happen until the next generation of games start getting churned out.

 

@azurearsenic

For all you know I could have bought that $8k Falcon Northwest rig and I'm running it smoothly at 1920x1200 with everything on ultra. The point is, the game looks better than anything the consoles can offer. There's no ands, buts, or howevers about this. I bet you Crysis looks better on my computer even at medium setting than do any of your HD games on my 100 dollar, 4 year-old, SDTV.

@Happy, FinalFan and others

I don't understand how you are supposed to have graphics on par with High level settings on Crysis with a GC ala 7800 GS / GT which is both RAM (256 Mo + 256 Mo with high latency) and bandwith (128 bits bus) limited ?

If you speak about art direction, i too expect wonders in the coming years from the HD console, but technically Crysis won't be acheived this gen ...

On a final note, are you sure you have looked at Crysis with decent set up ? (honest question)

Because several people compare Uncharted to Crysis in this very topic.

In all honesty, Uncharted look like a Wii game compared to Crysis on my setup ...

Because it's "been there, done that" ? it's called PlayStation 2 and still exists. And you don't have to strip a supercomputer to lower it PS360 level, just take any Core Duo processor of your taste and a not so powerful graphics card, let's say a little above of what the 360 has inside. You won't be able to run , not only Crysis, that would be a joke the way you'd have to play it, you wouldn't be able to run the same games available for those HD consoles like Gears of War, Devil May Cry 4, Prince of Persia, etc, not as well as PS360 can do it. It's a well-known fact.

 

And HD consoles are been there done that to PC's who have been outputting to HD for a long time. But the Wii isn't the PS2 unless the PS2 had a motion controller that was supported by a significant number of games (whether somebody likes the Wiimote or not is irrelevant as to whether it is different to the DS2).

As for the aim of your experiment being to show that consoles are more efficient than Pc then yes, I agree, and it is indeed a well known fact and is due to the number of variations of PC hardware; power and flexibility come at a price. I did not understand the point of your experiment as it is totally off topic, you might have been a bit more explicit.

Any argument that goes against the Wii from the HD  fanboys can go agaisnt them from the PC fanboys.

QFT. All 3 represent different power/price/flexibility compromises and none of them are intrinsically right/wrong. They can only be right or wrong for a particular person (and apparently there are far more persons for whom the Wii is right than for HD consoles).

@arsenicazure: a test at 720p would be more in line as many if not most PS360 FPS currently out do not even do that. Here you would be comparing Crysis at 2 megapixels against consoles whose games can't even run at 0.92 megapixel (720p). Not really fair is it? If you think it doesn't matter then why not use a crysis test at 2560x1600  (4 megapixel) to compare its low framerate to those console games that can't even push 720p. You say: "KZ2 looks quite nice and is comparable to crysis" but it isn't unless it runs at a comparable resolution.
