Prey 720p Xbox 360 videos

Prey 720p Xbox 360 videos

2K Games released two short single player videos, and a quite long multiplayer from Prey - all in 720p. The last one is heavely confusing though, it will probably take some time to get used to the physics. There's also four images from the PC-version in the news.

Awsome stuff, thanks.

I've been waiting nearly 10 years to play this game..hope it was worth it :) Is the X360 version of this title actually going to ship around the same date as the PC version? I wasn't expecting a quick conversion..hopefully their port (of a Doom3 Engine game) is a better conversion than Quake 4 was.

I hope the reason 3DRealms outsourced this project is 'cause they're HARD AT WORK (lol) on Duke Nukem 4...heh

looks very nice and at a solid framerate. that multiplayer will get a bit confusing! but still looks original.

Looking very good. Great use of the D3 engine. I wish they would spend more time on it and get it at 60fps instead of 30fps, but I guess a release date is a release date.

Does anyone know if this is the PC version or the xbox 360 version? Or will both versions end up looking pretty much the same?
Commented on 2006-02-11 16:57:09
they will end up looking basically identical since they said the same assets are being used for both, not dumbing it down for console, which is good :)

any1 know if i need a special codec to play these files properly,my media player is running the vids really slow

It may just be because of the high resolution of the image and general high bit-rate rustykaks.
Bring up your task manager while you play it and see how much your CPU is being used.
I'm D/L at the minute

Holy cow! That MP action looks insane! Oh, man, i hope they've got splitscreen! that would rock.

btw rustykaks, the MP video does play a bit slow for me, in windows media player 10.

Venom is doing the 360 port. Not sure if they will be release simultaneously. I'll pass on this. Looks like a modern day Turok with aliens instead of dinos. I'll stick with GRAW, BF2, GoW and Halo3.

I've never been too intrigued by the multiplayer player aspects of Prey, but it does look like it could be fun--it's Quake meets Escher. Being a big Quake fan, and a big Escher fan--this sounds cool to me :P

I think the single player game has a lot of potential though..it's going to be quite a different sort of campaign--certainly nothing like Turok--atleast I hope :P Prey is all about "portal technology" and the Escher sort of effect..concepts that when backed with cool campaign and level design could really be something special.

This game sounded awsome in 1997..and it still looks pretty fresh to me.

That's probably all I would buy if I had an xbob 360 right now. All the good stuff :D

I'd say Prey is very origional and looks very unique, which I'm sure will be extrememly good. I think you should keep your eyes on Prey a little longer and try and get it, because no Halo 3 till 2007, possibly during summer corresponding with the movie release. This game looks like a winner.

Acert I doubt they'll get it at 60fps since they are targeting 30, but you think they'll be able to optimize up to 60fps even though they are most likely using 4xaa, softshadows, HDR among other things?
Commented on 2006-02-11 19:42:49
Another thing to take note of guys is this game will look much better when running on your 360 :)

The video can only do so much.

Looks very nice in my opinion.

Must you say this in every single topic?
Commented on 2006-02-11 20:43:28
Hell its true isn't it? We all see from the video how great it looks, but I like others have also had my hands on the dead or alive 4 720p images or videos only to see the actual game look superior as its running on my 360 as opposed to what I saw in some 720p video.

Even pgr 3 every 360 game that I've seen screenshots or videos of looks better when your actually playing it. I notice this is becoming quite the trend so why not point it out? Look at ghost recon screenshots or videos people have been finding out recently you haven't truely seen this game until you've seen it running on a 360 that is in the same room as you are.

Prey like the others will be far more immersive when you have the thing running on your 360 and judging from how good it already looks from videos the thought of it running on your 360 is very promising. Plus the other times I've mentioned it people have complained about how not next gen it looks, but I admit this time the statement wasn't called for as nobody really insulted prey :)

Could they? There is no reason why not. The problem is the D3 engine was developed with DX7 class hardware in mind (GF3). This is one of the reasons the FX series--horrid at SM2.0/DX9 games--did well in Doom 3 benchmarks yet got spanked in Far Cry, HL2, etc.

Could they do it on the short amount of time they have? Obviously not. Be it deadlines or just being happy with 30fps, there is no reason the 360 cannot run the game at 60fps from a technical perspective. But if you are co-launching the fact is you need to cut corners and having a second 3rd party port it (id < Human Head < Venom) there is no way they are going to touch the engine much. Kind of like Q4, id did most of the engine port (Carmack worked on it).

Oh well it is looking solid and looks "paced" enough 30fps wont kill it... in general every gen has these ports issues. All I can say is that my opinion is pubs should wait for games are done. Cannot say much for Prey, but Q4 obviously needed to be delayed. That was an example of launch being more important then the game itself :(

Good choices.. :)

I might even pick-up GoW and Halo3 myself just because they are not on PC.. But only if they're really must-play AAA-titles, and UT2007 and ET:QW aren't released ealier on PC.. :P

It has the potential to be a "sleeper" hit, same thing with Time Shift (Chronicles of Riddick was a great game, but didn't sell that well because of other big name games) Prey was a highly anticipated game about 10 years ago, it really depends on WHEN they get it out and how much promotion the game will get. One thing's for sure, they better get it out before Halo3, GoW, UT2007, and/or the possible F.E.A.R. port to the 360. I don't see the big deal with 30fps vs 60fps as long as the frame is consistent and doesn't affect the gameplay (movement with analog sticks on the gamepad is not as extreme as the mouse). That multiplayer stage looks like it can strain my neck. They are implementing some interesting concepts in the game though (different gravity, spirit walking, organic weapons, etc).

I agree with nossy all the new elements look really cool, but one thing that seems cool in the single player game: the wall walking seems to be a bit overdone in the multiplayer section, i was almost getting nauseous...
I've played some fps games where u could wallwalk (Alien vs. Predator for example) but this time it's a faced paced multiplayer session and i know that it will make me nauseous :D

you 360 fanboys make me laff.. lol,

face it, 360 isnt saying S^%T when ur used to high-powered PCs..

YET again a (suposidly) next generation super-console cant produce decent looking FPShooter at 60fps.. its aiming at 30fps?? lol this is funny s^%t.. face it 360 isnt really all that powerful when in hi-def mode..

Expect both halo 3 and Gears or war to run at only 30fps also..

My pc could Piss out this game at 60fps with ease, like any other Doom3 engine one before hand.. (q4, doom3)


Please stop hyping the 360 up soo much... cos to people who own powerful PCs like myself, 360 isnt saying anything..
i think your pc is stuck in your ass budy, nobody wants to hear your shit....
