Must have some pretty high-res assets to enable a zoom function.

This is exactly what I am thinking.

I got a shit load of footage from GC of the Vita in action. It's a shame we have to wait until next year to get it. But most of the games look to be in a complete or near complete state already. So at least if most of the games that were shown off at GC are within the Vita's 90-day launch window, this is going to be the single best portable launch in history. Well worth the $250 and the unfortunate, extended wait until next spring. It'll feel so nice to finally have a proper portable game system again.

The Vita is damned near HD. The screen itself has a resolution of 960 × 544 pixels, which at 220 ppi, is physically larger than the 5" screen. So yeah, some pretty high res assets are needed, to fill all that. And these photos which show the game in it's native resolution, as well as condensed in a full-sized mock-up of the system, bear that out. And the 4-core SGX543MP4+ GPU in the Vita, can render images at a much higher resolution than that, even. So there is a lot of spare power there to really push the level of detail in Vita games to eye bleeding proportions as devs get more familiar with programming for it.

    KORNdog @jmd749: between the specs and saying it's a few years away still i think it's safe to say it's a next gen console title. (1 Hour ago)

    jmd749 @KORNdog: that's a pretty high end PC rig for Cyberpunk. I really hope they don't dumb the AI down as a result of consoles weak ass CPUs. good AI is essential in a title like this. (1 Hour ago)

    HR2 @KORNdog: they needed the publicity and also needed to make a good first impression in terms of the visuals. they are really good devs but I can;t help but think they have always been a bit dodgy (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: which is probably why they don't want to show it. although it is weird that the xbox trailer is already downgraded compared to the main release of the trailer. (4 Hours ago)

    droezelke @KORNdog: I other words: won't even look close to it on consoles :-) (4 Hours ago)
