Image of Heavenly Sword

The following image has hit the web, and according to a developer at Ninja Theory it's actually an image that shows how the game should look like at the release. It's supposed to be from a realtime cutscene, slighly touched up, and it's really really impressive as you'll see for yourself inside.

Impossible for this to be Ingame. Come on now, Dont bullshit us Ninja Theory will ya ? The game looks really good and there really is no need to Lie Ninja Theory!

This is one million % CGI period

One million percent is... like... a lot.

It's like.. ten thousand times its own CGI-ness. :O

Quote from the dev:

Only touch up work done on the image was a quick re-do of the specular highlighting on the eyes, the blurring on the background, and then resizing and jpeg'ing.

Yes sure he's saying that, he's the developer of the game. but My eyes are telling me differently and I sure as hell will be stunned if they will pull this off! We'll see.

in The Develoepr diary they released recentely, this is how the main heroine looked like [ http://images.playsyde.com/gallery/public/5013/644... ]

Sorry but this screams COMPLETE BULLSHIT to me. :D

I can't wait for this game, the picture kinda shows her free falling...to her death, damnit.

I gotta agree with Alimo...the fact that they tried to say thats realtime made me laugh...and I liked how this game was coming along too, why would they have to lie? Compare the screens...

In-game:

what? I know I said unless they added like a million polygons to her model since the last preview/build. And with the huge environments and tons of other characters on the screen at once, theres no way they could.

Lol, well, in regards to yours I wanted to emphasise how un-realtime it was, because I agree with you.

About him, come on, it was too good to pass up. :D

I mean that this screen's was from very old build.

comment from dev

It depends, often higher detailed models are used in the cut scenes..

If it's improved near that much it'll be very impressive. I know nothing shown till now has been that new.
Commented on 2007-03-09 21:01:02
I don't find it very hard to believe at all that this is in-game. If any of you guys know anything about pc stuff, you'll know that gpu manufacturers have used tech demos of that quality and better to show the power of the hardware. Seeing as the ps3 uses an overclocked 7800gtx, this seems very possible. Especially if they use higher quality models for the cutscenes, which is an actual tactic. It was used in resident evil: code veronica.
Commented on 2007-03-09 21:02:57
O yea, and don't forget that nobody has really seen this game since E3. There's no telling how far they've advanced the graphics.

What you're referring to are CGI Cinematics which have nothing to do with the game engine and the same is applicable here. The picture in this thread is CGI and no developer can fool me with their crap. They really didnt have to do this. The game as I said was looking ubelievable already and then they go and spit this lie ..... Na Na Not cool at all Ninja Theory!

Get over it, its a realtime cutscene,we have not seen the game for awhile now, I mena NEW footage, not some odl build, so stop saying thats not ingame when you do not know how it looks
Commented on 2007-03-09 23:28:54
The build from the last video we saw is from November 2006 if I'm not wrong.

Anyway this is the cutscene model, In-game of course will not boost all this quality.

No, actually what I'm referring to is real time technical demonstrations of what modern GPUs are capable of. I'm not talking about CG. If you want an Idea of what I'm talking about, go to ATI or Nvidia's website and look for their demos. They all run in real time and are downloadable. But seeing as you have no idea what I'm talking about you probably don't have the hardwar to run any of the newer demos so you'll just have to watch the videos. Cmon man. You really think I'd let myself go by AMDman if I didn't know what I was talking about?
