Here's the new CGI commercial for R & C: Tools of Destruction:

link

If you've played the demo or game, you'd notice that the CGI looks remarkably similar to the actual game. Note: I said "similar"--not "the same"--there are obvious particle, lighting, physics, and texture resolution advantages in the CGI movie. But I dare say that Ratchet has gotten much closer to CGI, or "Pixar" quality visuals than any game before it.

Here's some gameplay footage for the sake of comparison:

An in-game cutscene:

And in blistering 1080i high-definition, this game looks much crisper and brighter than fuzzy, compressed gametrailers footage. It's a lot of fun to play, too :)

Pretty. :)

I really like the commercial. Whatever team worked on that ad needs to work on all Sony ads.

No, you didn't tell me. I'm hurt that you'd tell other people without telling me first.

Did you get the 40GB? Heavenly Sword I'm guessing?

I'm getting one when MGSIV or GTAIV comes out, whichever is out first (probably GTAIV now). And it's rumoured to have online so I think that'll be the first game that I kick your ass on. It's gonna be fun to run over you (in the game). Then kill you in MGS, Killzone etc, it's just all ass-kicking for you.

The same site PS3 fans bank on. So, if you don't agree with it, go to Sony Defense Farce or something.

we have a 52" lcd hdtv with hdmi input from the ps3, this game looks brilliant on it even close up, the only thing i've noticed a big difference between the cg cutscenes and the in game footage (and in game cutscenes) is that faces are slightly different: eyes and mouths, their lines are a little smoother, otherwise there's not a whole lot of difference, and of course emperor tachyon's face is too smooth to be in game footage, but otherwise the only time i saw jaggies was during the first cutscene of the game, the game is very very sharp
my only complaint is the final armor you get in the game (badass looking trilium armor) is pretty-low res, in cutscenes it looks like ps2 graphics, that's my only real complaint about the graphics in the whole game, otherwise it's all brilliant

I beat the game, and I haven't noticed any screen tearing. There is some slow down in some cutscenes, but none durring gameplay.

Totally agree, and I been playing this game on my 42 inch LCD HDTV in 1080p and im like stunned with the graphics alone. Its funny because everytime I am playing it my nephews and nieces sit there and just watch it like its a pixar movie, and when I go to play Warhawk or Halo 3 they get mad and say put on the movie of RAC, lol. It truelly is an amazing game even if it is easy, I still love it because of exploring for new items and weapons. Must buy game for anyone who owns a ps3, simply the best ratchet ive played, and worth the buy. :)

I'm getting one when MGSIV or GTAIV comes out, whichever is out first (probably GTAIV now). And it's rumoured to have online so I think that'll be the first game that I kick your ass on.

haha you wish. You're gonna be walking along, minding your own business in MGO until you spot a magazine featuring Adriana Lima on the cover, and while you're busy "reading the article" I'll come up behind you and CQC your @ss :D

And lol, I haven't told anyone yet. I might make a blog about it in the near future. I got the 80GB with Motorstorm, even though I said before I'd get the 40. I just figured the extra HDD and backwards compatibility was worth the extra money. I also rented Heavenly Sword, so hopefully I can beat that this weekend.

Improve on what? Textures? FMV? You think developers will spend their time creating high quality textures and FMV? 50GBs worth? What exactly will you 50GBs of?? Do you even know?

So far, only Motorstorm. I haven't opened it yet, though, since I'm thinking of trading it in for a different game.

No, it doesn't. That's gametrailers' video capturing that's causing the tearing. The game itself runs seamlessly.

can some one answer this question for me? why is that the cutscenes in the game looks terrible compared to the ones in the very first level? ( ihavent beat the game yet). Are those cutscenes CG? it cant be because its looks nothing like CG or the 60 second TV spot...so wtf is up with that? it bothers me because i thought the first level was so amazing because it was so damn cinematic then after that its feels like idk? not as exciting?

:lol: That was good.

I'll think you'll need longer than a weekend for HS. I have concluded that you aren't talented in videogames. I came to this conclusion through solid research (so if you win in any online games in the future it's causing I'm letting you win).

But anyhoo, congrats! I'm not jealous at all.

Based on storage space? See, you can't even give examples. You result to insults. NO developer will spend the amount of time needed to fill up a BlueRay disc with 50GBs of data for a video game. 50GBs worth of storage is for one benefit - MOVIES. And thats were BluRay does well - no where else. The improvement will come from CPU/GPU, not storage.

Sound, FMV and textures. So, developers will give you 5GBs of gameplay mechanics, and 45GBs of all that other stuff? It will take YEARS to complete one video game.Again, improvement in games come from CPU and GPU, not storage. Storage is nice, but its not up there in  making better games. What would you rather have? A car with a powerful engine? Or a bus? if you want to get from point A to point B faster (game play and performance), you go for the car with the powerful engine. If you want to haul 20 people from point A to point B, you go for the bus.

i agree, personally if it can't fit on a 5.25" floppy then the developer is just being lazy, and what's with all these 256 color games nowadays? can't people see 16 color is all that's needed for a rich colorful environment? all these people worried about graphics, pshaw

So we will stay at making games at about 25gbs and never improve, ever, ever, EVER and technologically, this is the best its ever gonna get?


Improve on what? Textures? FMV? You think developers will spend their time creating high quality textures and FMV? 50GBs worth? What exactly will you 50GBs of?? Do you even know?

Your an idiot arguing with me on this one, you think things wont improve, thats just foolish.


Based on storage space? See, you can't even give examples. You result to insults. NO developer will spend the amount of time needed to fill up a BlueRay disc with 50GBs of data for a video game. 50GBs worth of storage is for one benefit - MOVIES. And thats were BluRay does well - no where else. The improvement will come from CPU/GPU, not storage.


i agree, personally if it can't fit on a 5.25" floppy then the developer is just being lazy, and what's with all these 256 color games nowadays? can't people see 16 color is all that's needed for a rich colorful environment? all these people worried about graphics, pshaw

Bad, bad use of the slippery slope argument. Seriously, anyone who uses it in this way just makes a fool of himself.

Improved CPU will result in real time physics calculations, advanced AI and a million other things that would ENHANCE a video game experience. Pretty textures, bloated FMV and overkill on audio is just eye candy. What makes me go wow are games that mimic real life in action, not looks.

so you would be okay if the game had great physics but everything was B&W gray blocks that emitted beeps and nothing else? updating formats has always been healthy there's a reason why the 360 doesn't use CD's for its games and there's a reason why people don't use dialup anymore either

haha you wish. You're gonna be walking along, minding your own business in MGO until you spot a magazine featuring Adriana Lima on the cover, and while you're busy "reading the article" I'll come up behind you and CQC your @ss :D

And lol, I haven't told anyone yet. I might make a blog about it in the near future. I got the 80GB with Motorstorm, even though I said before I'd get the 40. I just figured the extra HDD and backwards compatibility was worth the extra money. I also rented Heavenly Sword, so hopefully I can beat that this weekend.

the-very-best

:lol: That was good.

I'll think you'll need longer than a weekend for HS. I have concluded that you aren't talented in videogames. I came to this conclusion through solid research (so if you win in any online games in the future it's causing I'm letting you win).

But anyhoo, congrats! I'm not jealous at all.

:lol::lol: @ your comeback

fuzzy, are you thinking of getting Resistance? the single player is really good, and the online is fun.Mordred19

Maybe...I tried the demo and I wasn't very impressed. The shooting action seemed like CoD, but something just didn't feel right. I don't have a lot of time to play right now, or money to spend on games for that matter, but since you recommended it I will definitely consider it.

Btw, what's your PSN ID?

Well, Resistance does feel a little unfamiliar at first. I don't think I've ever seen that game's health system used in any other shooter, for one thing. The art design and music definetly feel different, even a year later for me. Could be unfamiliarity with the PS3 controller in your case, perhaps.

MyPSNID is Mordred19, same as here.

Pretty. :)

I really like the commercial. Whatever team worked on that ad needs to work on all Sony ads.

Hey, did I tell you I got a PS3?

We'll game online as soon as you get one next year.

Congrats! Seriously get R&C I bought it and I love it, at least worth a rental.
