We’ll be talking more about KZ:M next week, so I’ll leave you hanging for now![/QUOTE]

A new issue of a Polish magazine has already hit the internet with some new pictures and the first details. Some of them are as follow:

[QUOTE]- Engine is nearly 1:1 from PS3 version
- They added a few new gimmicks to the engine, so they can utilize more PS Vita
- Game is gorgeous, clear and crispy textures, big draw distances
- Character models are awesome, the same with animation
- Stable FPS even with gigantic action inside levels
- Literally - game is like portable Killzone 3, looking better than Uncharted.[/QUOTE]

It looks absolutely [I]staggering[/I].

The story direction and setting of this need to influence KZ4 in some way. It seems too awesome.

H_Prestige 01-27-2013 10:48 PM

It looks just like the ps3 version. And on a OLED? Holy shit.

Byakuya769 01-27-2013 10:50 PM

Sony needs to get their 1st parties making vita games. Deserves to be doomed.

Oh... wait.

What do they 'better' than Uncharted, like Golden Abyss better?

[QUOTE=Trevelyon;46968577]What do they 'better' than Uncharted, like Golden Abyss better?[/QUOTE]

Golden Abyss looks shit compared to PS3 version. Maybe they're emphasizing that it looks more like PS3 Killzone when compared to Uncharted's look compared to PS3.

Wynnebeck 01-27-2013 10:55 PM

AWWW YEAAHHHH. Let the hype begin. I think we're heading into E3 season gentlemen. I can sense it!

Iacobellis 01-27-2013 10:55 PM

AH! I need to play this game, now. Native resolution? AA?

RoKKeR 01-27-2013 10:55 PM

Can't wait for what they have in store for this game. Could be a huge lift for Vita sales if it blows people away.

jgmo870 01-27-2013 10:56 PM

[QUOTE=Trevelyon;46968577]What do they 'better' than Uncharted, like Golden Abyss better?[/QUOTE]

Probably, yeah, since it still stands as the best looking Vita game.

[img]http://www.emuglx.org/nextemuforums/images/smilies/wow.gif[/img] This souns delicious! Finaly some big 1st party effort after launch of the console. I cant wait for more previews and media.

Nirolak 01-27-2013 11:01 PM

Split bump.

i-Lo 01-27-2013 11:02 PM

GG's ability to create beautiful and atmospheric worlds, great gun play, splendid animation are matched their incompetence pertaining to plot, characters and dialogues. This franchise could have been so much more and yet they continue to pummel at the wrong direction.

[QUOTE=shagg_187;46968658]Golden Abyss looks shit compared to PS3 version. Maybe they're emphasizing that it looks more like PS3 Killzone when compared to Uncharted's look compared to PS3.[/QUOTE]

I would contest that given the mitigating factor presented by the small screen size.

Oh god more touchscreen bullshit. Please have an option to turn off this shit.

Derrick01 01-27-2013 11:03 PM

I'm expecting it to look a LOT better than the mediocre debut which was a long time ago now. Hopefully more details on the SP campaign which is all I care about.

[QUOTE=Deadbeat]Oh god more touchscreen bullshit.[/QUOTE]

If that's all we get then we'll have dodged a massive bullet. No motion or back touch crap will feel refreshing.

Musiol 01-27-2013 11:05 PM

Just to clear things - there will be a lot of new information but for now - I can't write a thing. But believe - it's worth for waiting. I think that embargoes will go up somewhere around Wednesday.

I wouldn't mind more gyro aiming for the sniper rifles similar to U:GA.

But for every little good idea you get scratching away sand/dirt. Its better if theres an option to turn off the gimmicks.

unaveragekid2 01-27-2013 11:07 PM

Sorry for requesting links to scans, wasn't thinking.

If there's a price cut or a nice bundle around release, this game could probably make me finally take the plunge.

[QUOTE=Iacobellis;46969035]I wouldn't mind more gyro aiming for the sniper rifles similar to U:GA.[/QUOTE]

I don't know how similar it was to Killzone 2's sniper/Sixaxis implementation, but I loved that. It was great for making tiny adjustments in aiming, and I was really bummed when I got to the first sniping section of Killzone 3 and couldn't do it.

And that "point your Vita towards the sun" gimmick.

Honestly, I didn't even mind scratching dirt too much, but that one is just straight-up bullshit.

SolidSnakex 01-27-2013 11:11 PM

[QUOTE=RoboPlato;46969170]Remove those. Not allowed on GAF.[/QUOTE]

That's PSXE's official site. Those are allowed.

Ingueferroque 01-27-2013 11:11 PM

This might be the game that shows the potential of a powerful, gaming-exclusive handheld like the Vita. Let's hope it is 1) good, and 2) Sony advertises it.

Musiol 01-27-2013 11:11 PM

[QUOTE=Trevelyon;46968577]What do they 'better' than Uncharted, like Golden Abyss better?[/QUOTE]

Oh, It's added by me. It means that graphically it's better than Uncharted. From technical point of view, 'cause it's always design side of game :)

RoboPlato 01-27-2013 11:11 PM

[QUOTE=KurowaSan;46969223]it's not a scan[/QUOTE]

Ah, didn't see that it was from the magazine's own site. You're good, my mistake.

H_Prestige 01-27-2013 11:12 PM

Eh, looks like they're sticking with KZ3's "colorful" outdoors environments. Was hoping they went back to KZ2 style.

Iacobellis 01-27-2013 11:13 PM

[QUOTE=H_Prestige;46969289]Eh, looks like they're sticking with KZ3's "colorful" outdoors environments. Was hoping they went back to KZ2 style.[/QUOTE]

Colorful environments would look amazing on the OLED screen. I need something to get the dull aftertaste from BO: Declassified out of my mouth.

Loudninja 01-27-2013 11:14 PM

Yeah this is going to be pretty amazing.

Forsete 01-27-2013 11:14 PM

Please be co-op!

I thought the color they added to KZ3 was great especially the "jungle". Definitely one of my favorite locations in the game and MP.

Grisby 01-27-2013 11:15 PM

Man, I'm ready for some fps love on the vita. Put those sticks to use!

VanWinkle 01-27-2013 11:15 PM

WOW that looks insane.

Black tones are even better on OLED. Dat inkiness.

Goddamn. Sony 1st party rocks.

Labadal 01-27-2013 11:19 PM

I see Tearaway info. I hope these games can give the VITA a little bump in sales.

spats 01-27-2013 11:19 PM

I hope this game delivers. Looks cool though.

Akainu 01-27-2013 11:20 PM

Excite. Is there a tearaway thread?

RoKKeR 01-27-2013 11:20 PM

Damn that looks good. Can't wait for some official screenshots.

Duffyside 01-27-2013 11:20 PM

I don't even like Killzone really, and I'm excited for this. The environments look wonderful. Just don't like the forced touchscreen crap.

James Sawyer Ford 01-27-2013 11:21 PM

Hard to tell from the tiny screen shots, but it looks very comparable to the PS3 version.

Color me impressed....hope the multiplayer is scaled down and plays more like KZ2.

Edit: Where are you people seeing Tearaway?

BigTnaples 01-27-2013 11:21 PM

And I am hyped. Can't wait to see people truly start to tap the Vita hardware. Uncharted looked great aside from IQ and it was a launch game.



Also, if the gameplay is as good as KZ2 (or even 3 really) it will be a system seller. If I showed any of my casual friends an FPS looking and playing as good as KZ on a freaking handheld they would lose it.

TheChillyAcademic 01-27-2013 11:22 PM

[QUOTE=VanWinkle;46969385]WOW that looks insane.[/QUOTE]

Preach it sista!

Finally some information!!1

Famassu 01-27-2013 11:22 PM

[QUOTE=Deadbeat;46968962]Oh god more touchscreen bullshit. Please have an option to turn off this shit.[/QUOTE]

Uhh.. dude, that doesn't sound like anything gameplay related. They talk about making some adjustments to the ENGINE, and given that (IIRC) they are using the same engine they used for KZ3, it simply means they are utilizing Vita's hardware better for the game and are doing some neat-o stuff with some effects or something, which has nothing to do with what they are doing with the gameplay.

Akainu 01-27-2013 11:23 PM

[QUOTE=James Sawyer Ford;46969589]Edit: Where are you people seeing Tearaway?[/QUOTE]Its like right under the killzone pictures in the link.

V_Ben 01-27-2013 11:23 PM

I am so looking forward to this. Cambridge are a fantastic studio, and the game stars whole new characters! That's what has me most excited.

Ein Bear 01-27-2013 11:23 PM

[QUOTE=i-Lo;46968931]I would contest that given the mitigating factor presented by the small screen size.[/QUOTE]

Uncharted's problem is that it has absolutely terrible IQ. If they got it running at native res it would look mindblowing.
