Images of King Kong 360

Images of King Kong 360

Ubisoft sent a King Kong press kit to the european press with these images of the Xbox 360 version of the game included. For a "simple" port, it's quite good. Thanks to neural for the images.

I Played the demo at wal-mart a couple days ago. Looks really good in motion, But I couldn't figure out for the life of me how to distract the dinosour. I tried punching him in the leg and got stepped on :( Oh well, I guess i'll have plenty of time to figure it out when the 360 is released.

you need to grab either the spears or the gun and hit him 2 keep him from eating your friends and goto either side (left or right) and just weave in and out around the little structure. Its kinda tricky at first cause hes so fast. After a minute or so they will get the door open then you run inside but you gotta time it right on T-Rex will eat you. You can only take 2 hits then you die. But you can recover from 1 "bite" if you get away for a few seconds then you can take another hit :)

Crap I just deleted my first post when I went to reply. Oh well :(

Basically I said the 360 version truly looks next gen which is suprising since everyone thought it would be a port from the xbox version. Think of the xbox version as conker on n64 and the 360 version of conker remake thats how much better the graphics are (I played the xbox and 360 demo which is identical besides the xbox version being shorter).

I spent a good 5-10 minutes just walking around with my eyes wide open staring at the ground(rocks) and the wall's detail. Thought they was going to have to pry me from the kiosk.

The ground textures still look a little low res, but the bump mapping overall looks great. Particularly in the T-Rex

Yeah, where does the old ape play into this? I wonder how detailed they will get with him. Im hoping for hair.

They've added a more dramatic lighting system and have high res textures but that's about it. I sort of hope they don't try to add a bunch of next geny features and end up breaking what's an A M A Z I N G looking game.

Rock solid framerate and sharpness is everything I expect from my extra fiver, and I do get a tingly sensation from knowing that this is essentially what the PS2 version looks like. I almost don't dare imagine what Ancel can do with a game developed primarily for the 360 or PS3.

Rayman 4 on the 360 \o/

Some look great and some don't look so great... o_o; Wasn’t this game built from the ground up on PS2?
Commented on 2005-10-31 15:01:55
hmmm... can somebody explain why the PC version is much worse in graphics then these screens from the 360? this looks great! I mean the PC-Version has great atmosphere and what they did with the old graficengine looks good on the PC but this, this is totally different...

my friend from ubisoft said the difference from xbox to 360 is huge. It has better everything and it wasn't a port.

Looks like a port to me, you can see some of the edges of objects aren't smoothed out of have jagged edges and the details don't really seem to be much of a leap from the Xbox version. It's looking good but too me it's mostly bumped up surfaces and higher texture detail on some objects and dinos.

Thanks for the info BlimBlim

Well, you can still compare the Xbox version T-Rex to the one in these images. Quite a difference.
It's a great port, but still a port.

In some preview I read, they used a special software tool that automagically added geometry to the PS2 assets.
Sounds like a handy tool, but I hope they don't get used to doing things that way in the future.

Damn that's extreme. If I were only to get one game on the 360 launch I would get this, if for no other reason than to support the Beyond Good & Evil team. I hope this one does well and gives them lots of $ for "R&D", hehe.

thats a pretty big diffrence but still not up to next gen quality
Commented on 2005-10-31 17:53:47
I'm also worried about the Pc version too the demo looked like a high res console port where the xbox360 looks so much better, maybe the final version gets better
Commented on 2005-10-31 17:57:16 In reply to jondaviskorn
umm this is a launch game. Ive played both version the 360 version truly looks next gen. Looks 10x better than I expected it to be considering the limited time they had to work on it. Go to your local wal-mart its even more impressive in motion. I guess some people need to lower expectations a little...

ThE_MaSTeR_3:
The thing is that most of us are europeans, and there aren't any kiosks here. Judging by the screenshots, the game doesn't look that impressive, but as everything it looks better in-motion.
UBI released one 320*240 X360 trailer, and that's it. It's their own fault.

Oh I see. Well your lucky cause I kinda wish I didnt already play it cause it took away some of the magic of playing it for the first time in my home.
Commented on 2005-10-31 20:56:46
I was hoping we'd see a T-Rex that looked as good as the ones in Jurrasic Park. Oh well, I'm sure 3rd/4rth gen xbox 360 games could do it.
