Sony: Heavy Rain Graphics Outstrip Uncharted 2
So far this year, I've been hinting that many developers with super promising projects will immediately make comparisons to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, simply because of the "measuring stick" quality I've spoken of in regards to Naughty Dog's masterpiece.
Well, it's happening again. Yesterday, Battlefield 2: Bad Company developer DICE, while still paying the correct amount of respect to Uncharted 2, claimed their vistas were superior in terms of graphics. And because many associate a raising of the visual bar with 2009's Game of the Year, everyone is looking to make comparisons to what could be the best-looking titles of 2010. Take Heavy Rain, for instance. We all know it's going to look fabulous - the footage we've seen thus far is might impressive - but according to GamerTell, one Sony representative who showed off the game at this year's CES show took it a step further. When prompted during a presentation of a Heavy Rain demo, the rep said, "graphically, it blows Uncharted 2 away." You can actually hear the rep say this in the video provided through the link and if you're on the fence, you can decide for yourself on February 23 when Quantic Dream's massively anticipated new IP arrives. For our part, it's very difficult to compare the two sets of graphics presentations; they're both striving for completely different things within completely different gameplay formats.
But perhaps what everyone is starting to note is that most all games in these "best graphics" conversations tend to be PlayStation 3 exclusives; Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, God of War III, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5, etc. It's worth noting...as I look back on the dark days of 2007.
