PGR3: Yet another video

PGR3: Yet another video

Snoopers also had the chance to visit the Xbox 360 showroom on Friday, with my camcorder. He sent me back about one hour of footage, so we'll start with this PGR3 video showing a bit more of New York and the photo mode.

This game alone makes Xbox 360 worth buying!

So I'm guessing that a chunk of that 1 hour of gameplay is PDZ stuff right? Please say yes.

Very cool stuff, I like that photo mode..

It's very cool to see the bridges so well rendered--and the skyline..looking at the financial district downtown is pretty brilliant..hell, even Canal St. gives me goosebumps--but there should be WAY more people on Canal, on an average day there's about 50x as many people on the streets in Chinatown--and that's not even durring a special event like this :) heh

It looks incredable, I sorta want to go take some comparison shots of this track vs. real life if I've the chance to do so.

Honestly Blim, I don't think that huge resolution is needed for your videos, they're still not direct feed, so why bother with such a huge res? Although, I have a high speed connection, I always download the "low res" vids, 640x??? is better, less space on my and your hardrive (server), basically the same quality, just smaller screen, much shorter download time.

Thanks for the video, but i'll wait for the low res version, which is by no means low res. For what is being shown, the low res is more than enough.

LEBATO:
Of course we always try to have both low-res and high-res. Low-res is up now. And I always download high-res, as I then can watch them full-screen.

Thanks Manager. Yes, you can watch them full screen, but since it's not direct feed, watching them full screen is, in my opinion not needed. The only video I have watched full screen is the new Gears of War trailer, of course, that's direct feed, that's worth it.

Thanks

Great Vid!! Got see alot of things that we've only just been able to read about, like photomode, car detailing in realtime, and you even showed off the crowd's reactions to crashes. Brilliant!!
Only other thing I would of liked to see was car damage in photomode.

And correct me if im wrong but this is the first vid to show the Austin Martin too, good exclusive. Now if you could get a vid of the Mercedes SLR :D

Damage? It's not like it is that good, it's just like PGR2 with today's graphics, nothing outstanding, not that I'm upset about it, this game has a lot more going for it.
Commented on 2005-10-23 22:57:44
i have to agree about the damage...its not fully realistic, physics wise or anything, but still looks perdy
Commented on 2005-10-23 23:03:41
when u were zooming the camera in on that blury building and N64 type people, i could hear PDz music!

Well, just wait 'til next video, there will be some crazy sounds which WON'T fit into the game Snoopers (not alone *hint*) is playing. ;)
Commented on 2005-10-23 23:13:22
If the damage physics were really "realistic", most average gamers probably wouldn't make it through a whole race without wrecking their vehicle beyond repair and perhaps even dying, heh. There comes a point in fantasy where you've just got to suspend your disbelief in something, we've been playing racing games, even "sims" for years without proper vehicle damage--having the indication of damage without it crumpling the front end of your vehicle to all hell and back is a good thing.

I would like to have the option though, depends on how much of skilled driver you are.

WOW! now that was one nice looking video, gfx really are amazing.
and nice to see Gotham with a decent Aston martin for once.

Ok...seriously...What the F is up with the reflections?! THere are no realtime reflections in this game. ANd if you say that there are...look again. It's a static reflection. I just hope they turned it off for this show in order to get the framerate up.

THey do appear to be disabled in this build, for speed or stability perhaps. the earliest released cam footage showed them updating.
Commented on 2005-10-24 00:19:45
I believe they have them on depending on what they can handle in the build. Some vids have realtime reflections where you can see everything, and others have none. It's a freakin demo of a non-final game, what do you expect. Wait until Nov. 22nd if you want to see everything perfect. That is the reason why these people hate showing off vids when the game isn't done, because certain people can never understand that the game is NOT DONE. Which is why they show it to press, who are used to it and can make judgments based on what is there (most of the time).
Commented on 2005-10-24 00:20:33
I'm with PoweredByTHC. Why are their no real-time reflections? The car models look almost current gen without them.
Commented on 2005-10-24 00:28:47
Some people. I remember a time when it was common knowledge that when a game was not in finished form, all of the bells and whistles weren't likely to be shown. Oh wait, no I don't. Thing is, its a great looking game with wonderful cars and surroundings, and its a GAME. We could easily point out all the unrealistic things in any game, so don't let Sony's dellusions of grandeur influence what you think next gen should be. Especially in an unfinished product.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (47 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (50 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (2 Hours ago)
