Sonic Next Gen 720p screenshots

Sonic Next Gen 720p screenshots

Announcement time for Sega, who unveiled the first images of his Sonic Next Gen, planned for Xbox 360 and PS3 somewhere in 2006. After the mistake "Shadow the Hedgehog", it's damn good to have the Sonic of our childhood back in business !

How does the character model look like crap?
That is Sonic? What else do you want?
I love these screens, thank you Snoopers.

That's what I expected from the sonic model. Looks just like it's supposed too. Game looks great I might even try this sonic game.

It's been 6 years to the day since I've even cared about a Sonic game. This one looks great!

I don't think the Sonic model looks like crap, but I think it could look a lot more "next gen-ish"...

But everything looks great anyways.

I hope the Chao World is back...This time with Xbox Live capabilities to race, play, fight & even mate with other peoples Chao. And a huge online garden.

This is one of many Sonic games I'm intrested in since the Dreamcast game.
So far it's looking good, they are really going tech for this Sonic game fo'sho.

Now's the time games really start comming out Next Gen.

There isn't a lot you can do with Sonic other than make him higher poly each time. Fur shading wouldn't work (though it would on Tails.)

Have we reached the law of diminishing returns in terms of graphics? All of these udnerwhelming-looking next-gen games can't be an accident.

I think we've reached a point where people can't see how much better games look until you show them comparisons side by side.

I agree with the sentiment that you can't make Sonic look more next gen without.. you know,.. changing how Sonic looks, bur I also sort of see what people mean when they're underwhelmed by the look of Sonic.

However, these are drawn from the tech demo shown some time ago, and while they're bundled with the confirmation of next gen Sonic, I don't think we should attach too much to these screenshots.

Rejoice that he doesn't look like a balloon animal anymore (Sonic Heroes) and look forward to playing what's prolly the first Sonic game since 1999 that doesn't... play like a Sonic game from 1999.

About the game

What's up?

    GriftGFX @aphex187: Well the early access edition is $75 it looks like anyway. Steep for a game that's not finished but I guess that's not an unheard of approach. (11 minutes ago)
