TGS06: Motorstorm gameplay

TGS06: Motorstorm gameplay

MotorStorm is of course at Sony's booth, with a brand new build and finally a new track to race on. This game is really beautiful, especially the lighting, but IMHO something's very wrong with the actual speed sensation.
Update: I've just received some very interesting informations. The build used today at the TGS is indeed faulty and too slow. A new fixed build should be available tomorrow and we will of course do our best to do some new videos!

I don't quite understand how all of these are looking worse everytime I see them... maybe it's because the show lighting is different? =/

Cam footage never does a game much justice. There is a new HD direct-feed trailer with the same track floating around...that would probably be better.

I don't quite understand how this can look worse to you than the gameplay videos previously shown. I think this looks absolutely fantastic. The lightning effects are superb and I can't find anything else to complain about than the somewhat unstable framerate. I think that with some vehicles the sense of speed is good enough (that red & white car, for example), although some looked really slow. Still, I don't think this is even meant to be like F-Zero on wheels.

And of course the gameplay probably looks worse than it actually is because the ones playing it haven't played Motorstorm before and are not completely at home with the controls & handling of the vehicles.

I like the new HUD. The graphics are very nice too.

this looks nice enough, nothing amazing tho, also the LOD clipping on grass and the like is crap, i was hoping that would be something that got fixed this gen with 360/ps3, but so far no go, surely there is a better way of LODing thats more seemless, really ruins the effect of enviroments in games

Terrible. Just Terrible.

You'd think that with that level of graphics you could at least get some sense of speed. This game is nowhere near the level of detail we see in games like PGR3 - and yet it still runs so slow.

Maybe it's all the physics, but come on - I rather have a game that moves faster.

boring and slow , needs more speed and a bunch of liars , this doesnt reach the target video , no buy.

About the game

    MrWhite that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (42 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (43 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (44 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (45 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (46 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (3 Hours ago)

    nostradamus put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (5 Hours ago)
