Wow, thanks. The graphics are mind-blowing. But what's with the DMC2-like expansive environments? It takes away all the tension that made the original DMC so damn fun.

Here are two more screens.

Uh, I thought DMC4 was confirmed to run at 60fps...

That isn't possible on the Framework engine (30fps).

Doesn't look "expansive" to me. Pretty much on par with DMC3. Maybe it's the widescreen aspect ratio that makes the areas look bigger.

It's amazing how detailed the game looks even in this pic...

Amazing, truly amazing!

Please let this come to the 360, otherwise I'll have to get a PS3 just for this!

Looks great, and in motion it will be wow!

Amazing, the detail on Dantes sword is crazy. :D

I'm glad there is a DMC 4 game out..but i can't really see the wow factor you guys are noticing lol

I'm amazed and happy dante is there..but that's about it..i'll wait till i see some videos from TGS, hope you guys will capture some good ones ;) Though the first pic of dante does look great..i think it's the environments..doesn't have that WOW feel? maybe heavier shadows needed?

Doesn't dante look like someone ? can't put my finger on it, but his face just seems familiar..i first thought he looked like the guy from silent hill 4 with white hair and a slightly more paler look..

and loudninja thanks for those images!

If you compare these directly to PS2 screenshots, the difference is very noticable.

Not Dante ;) He does look a lot like Dante though, but maybe that's the point. The new guy is named Nero.

This game looks incredible though, and I know after seeing other Framework games that this'll look mind-blowing in person and in motion. I simply cannot wait. Now I want to see RE5!

Its fully possible, ever thought of the fact that you can change the source code,
optimize it for new, more powerful hardware?^^
Trust me, its possible, this I know since I've been studying digital games for a couple of years.

It has absolutely nothing to do with more powerful hardware. If you think the 360 is somehow supremely underpowered when compared to the PS3, you're going to have a rude awakening. Changing the source code and reworking parts of the engine to accommodate a constant 60 frames per second is fine, but it's got nothing to do with hardware and everything to do with the game style.

Nope, I mean the one in the Red coat, that IS Dante. The sword is Rebellion, and he has Ebony and Ivory in other pictures aswell, I actually talked about pictures which weren't in this thread so that's my mistake. :) But Neros sword is awesome too. :D

Here are the pics:

Red = Dante ; Blue = Nero

Dante is definitely in the game btw, I do beleive he will be playable, but it's not confirmed yet.

I assume you love other DMC? Then why did you get a 360 in the first place when you knew DMC would obviously come to the PS3.

I am getting sick of "let this come to X360!" comments now...Especially on DMC *FOUR*! comments.
The first three was PS exclusive for crying out loud- It's NOT and never will go to another console! Evey trailer- EVery shot is labeled as PS3 Only! Jeez...

As far as the screenshots go! Let's get some NERO action!!!

Btw, what's the release date for this game?

Hahah Dante is growing a beard? hes really gotta shave =D
It looks really good, although Nero's arm in the 3rd picture doesnt look that great for some reason... maybe its just the sleeve

Antena you're right, it's the same with MGS4 and other PS3 games. Seriously if you like the games on the system, just get the system. It will be worth it in the end, because the games will prove their worth. Every system has to have its exclusives, otherwise they wouldn't be unique, so stop complaining about them.

"but it's got nothing to do with hardware and everything to do with the game style."
If you were to follow your theory, you'd be able to get the engine used for DMC4 up and running on, lets say, PS2 or whatever. It has everything to do with the engine and the hardware.

"If you think the 360 is somehow supremely underpowered when compared to the PS3, you're going to have a rude awakening." When it comes to processing power, the PS3 has a lot more of that, on the GPU part on the hand, there is not much of a difference, although the PS3 is still more powerful on that front too.

Devil May Cry 4: Information HQ, a blog that keeps up-to-date info on the game:

http://blogs.ign.com/DexterXS/2006/09/11/30632/

So that settles it, I suppose... DMC4 is confirmed to run at 60fps. And it's PS3-exclusive.

Actually antena, I've spoken with a few of my friends in the industry. You might even say they work with Capcom. Word is, because of the sales from Dead Rising and the popularity of the Lost Planet demo on the 360, Capcom may bring Devil May Cry 4 over to the 360. As you can tell, Dante is not the main character for this game. This is because Capcom is seriously thinking of putting it on both the PS3 and 360. Because of a chance of people not knowing anything about DMC on the xbox front of things...they've decided a different main character. Anyways, it will be interesting to see if this game goes the 360 route and Sony ends up losing another exclusive title. (Because they've lost a few so far.)

Now let's all understand, I will enjoy any of the new systems out. But, wouldn't it be awesome for others to enjoy this great DMC series? Do you "not" want other people to like this game? Seriously...instead your just promoting Sony. Sony, MS, Nintendo...whatever, they are all great console creators and I just want the games. Isn't that what gaming is all about!? The games!? Oh and you've got to remember folks, with exclusive titles...a lot of them have gone to other systems later down the road. Examples? Resident Evil 4, GTA:3, Vice City, Metal Gear Solid 2, etc. blah, blah, blah. Just because it's exclusive doesn't mean it will be that way forever. *sighs and goes back to playing Disgaea 2.*

There are a lot of developers out there that beg to differ on the GPU standpoint. From what I understand, the PS3 GPU can't render nearly as many triangles as the 360's, though the CPU may be able to take up some of the slack for that, who knows... Regardless, I see lots of things in these screens and the ones that came before it that annoy me... For starters, the use of 2-d sprites as objects (such as the fence, for one). Also, the lack of any bump-maping on the relief sculpture in picture 5... Right now this is something my crappy computer can run.
