Need for Speed Carbon images

Need for Speed Carbon images

EA released these images of Need for Speed Carbon. I'm not completely sure they are new, but at least they weren't online here before.

This game looks quite well but I like better Forza 2 which won't be out this year.
Does it have support new microsoft racing wheel ?

NFSC runs at 30 fps though, and these are bullshots.

tbh, the forza images were alot better than these... Seriously, those last few images show that NFS is basically running without lighting/shader effects of any sort.

The first couple of images are quite nice though, which is even more wierd.

Well, NFS was never really my kind of racer anyways.

Either a faked or high resolution shot of a game. These images were 2560x1440 originally.

How can you tell the original res was 2560x1440?

I like this term bullshots

looks exactly like screens from underground 2. not a single graphical enhancement ...

Because I downloaded them with this resolution from EA's press site?

I have no doubt FM2 will look overally better than NfS:C after its release (as FM2 is an exclusive title and is being developed by MS themselves), but PR has its own and Microsoft shouldn't have shown these horrible screens, I'm still in shock (I saw them yesteday)

BTW what is different in actual game than in these screens aside from incredible AA? I assume you played NfS Carbon on GC and you can answer my question. Thanks in advance.

im impressed by this. Dont get me wrong its no pgr3. But im impressed because its EA and it actually doesnt look half bad. Combined with all the tweaking you can do to the cars. Should make it worth a buy.

Are you sure?

This looks like being a fun game and I am really interested in the mods aspect of it. If Forza is released before this, I probably won't get it.

This maybe a dumb question but can anyone download them from the press site??
I would like to get some images to create wallpapers

You should start scaling shots using nearest-neighbor scaling in photoshop to get rid of the "uber-AA" (supersampling) resulted from (precise) bicubic downscaling which is default in photoshop and other apps.

Jaggie them up the way its going to look on our screens.

Anyone can as long as you know the web address (and login/password if used - some don't).

ive allways thought these games looked better in screens than in motion, so ill wait for my verdict on this one.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
