GRAW Xbox developer diary

GRAW Xbox developer diary

UBI has released the first Xbox developer diary for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. Who can call Xbox 360 "Xbox 1.5" after this? The version's are so different that I almost want to buy both.

Wow, it definitely looks better than Summit Strike but boy does the 360 version tear it a new one.

Wow, really makes you appreciate the power of the 360. I never thought xbox had graphics this bad, xbox 360 is really screwing with our minds.

Doesn't it look like the AI of your squad is much better in the Xbox version? Well of course you only have one guy. Anyway...

mmmmm, didnt they say that that little square on the top left, where you can see your teammate's point of view, could only be rendered by the Xbox 360?

What's up with the outsourcing?
Commented on 2006-02-18 18:43:58
Outsourcing? Ubisoft have a studio in Shanghai is all.

I was about to say that. In the 360 videos they claim that it's possible to do the crosscom only thanks to the power of the 360 but here it is in the xbox version ... makes you wonder
Commented on 2006-02-18 19:20:43
maybe they mean that it cant be done in the same way. U'll notice that the FPS of the cross com is no where near full speed, where as the 360 one is. Can't be done as well as 360 maybe.

That's what i'm guessing.

Yep your completely right, the crosscom on the 360 is a realtime window, on the xbox it's definitly not realtime.....
Commented on 2006-02-18 19:36:11
look at the middle bottom pic the player is clearly visible in the other crosscom window look realtime to me may not be as detailed as the 360 but they said it was only possible on the 360
Commented on 2006-02-18 19:36:17
after seeing that video, i think it's best that the 360 version doesn't have the gun model on the 1st person mode, becuase it makes it look too much like rainbow 6, and I think most people will use the 3rd person view since it's just cool :p

on that matter, can't wait for RS on 360 :)
Commented on 2006-02-18 19:49:19
I hate 3rd person perspectives in games...

And I don't hate this. They did a GREAT job with the 3rd p view. Plays like FPS, but with all the advantage of 3rd p.

Lol it's crap compared to the 360, the fps on that little window looks like 10 fps, sometimes u see it standing still, sometimes it's even "unusable" as u can see in the video,
i don't think i've to explain this more cause if u can't see the difference than so be it...

when someone tells me something 'cant be done on other systems' then why is it in there? it is CLEARLY REALTIME ie, not pre rendered

the updates may not be as high but it is clearly useable

there is obviously no comparason between the two games the 360 version is probably 200% better but that was not the point of my original question

ok! I wasn't saying that RS is bad, I love RS myself, but I think they need to keep the two series seperate and different. GR has always had no weapon in 1st person view!

Rainbow Six kicks ass, and first person weapons view DESTROYS first person NO weapons view and the gay ass OTS view!!!! The makers of the 360 version ruined the game by not including weapons view!!! Heck, that's the only reason why I'm not getting it!!!!
lol you are not buying a game becuase you cant see the gun?? i have other priorities like xbox live functionality and my pc neing upstairs on a desk and not connected to my HDTV :-)

I love the whole "but I can't play it on my couch" argument. My 360 is sitting right next to my 24" 16:10 LCD..the same screen I use on my PC...so I play at my desk...it's still comfortable!

This looks cool..looks a bit more like the PC version, sorta strange, really..I too may be buying two GRAW's, depending on how the PC version turns out.
