Hm... the PS3 really seems to struggle with UE3. But as long as it'll run smoothly the PS3 fans can look forward one of the best games ever^^

Mind you, BioShock runs on a modified UE 2.5 engine.

Nope, it moved to UE3 towards the end of development I believe.

EDIT - Yeah there is a Case Study on the Unreal Tech site.

looks like they stripped a good portion of it to me, wtf and jaggies around girl in the first and bd in the last one.. lord they really need to take more time on this as its not looking good... i mean on the 360 it was a showcase of how good and atmospheric a game can be... on the ps3 their rushing for some reason.

The same graphics as on PC(dx9) and X360. As i expected. :(

Gosh, the 360 and PC looked way above and beyond this. O.o

You sure? I played Bioshock on PC and can't see any difference

Bioshock runs on UE2.5 with the UE3 renderer. These screens look about the same as 360 version and PC. Smoke is better on 360. UE3-games all suffer from jaggies cause the engine can only do software antialiasing.

That seems to be the case. I stand corrected.

The textures in that third screen are just... wow.
Commented on 2008-06-11 20:31:37
The 360 version looked better at least.
Commented on 2008-06-11 20:35:13
nice shadow in the third screenshot. overall looks a bit to light?

The 360 version had no AA either you know, have you all ever seen pictures of bioshock one? Its not that pretty as a still image.

Here's a screenshot from the 360 version:

See anything familiar? Starts with a j.

Here's another one so you know it's not just a one-in-a-million.

Dude i agree, but bump mapping is sooooooo 2001!
Normal Mapping is soo 2007!
Now we should expect Parralax Occlusion Mapping (as in the crysis pebblestones you know) :)

Did he ever say anything about it not being jaggy on the 360? No.
This game will suck and be a 1-day play-then-collect-dust game just as much as it was on the 360 :P

Fanboys always jump to fast conclusions. The fact is that these screens look horrid. But let's see how it turns out in the end. Xbox screens weren't beautifull, too, but the game was a looker when running.

i thought the graphics were supposed to be enhanced for the ps3 version? If the 3rd screen shot is anything to go by then they've been downgraded. The textures, lighting, and colour all seem to look inferior to the 360 version.. unless thats just a very bad quality picture.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (41 minutes ago)

    nostradamus @jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I've played a ton of Halo too. Just not Halo 5 because I'm not a masochist. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tiz: "Individual skill" still drives top players to become top players in OW. The team with the better comp *and* better players is going to win. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tiz: Eh.. "more dependant on individual skill" is one way to look at it. (1 Hour ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @droezelke: it's awesome that one of the greatest minds in game development is given funding and respect. And using a hardware specific engine for his new game suggests he'll be a Sony 1st party dev. (1 Hour ago)
