The textures are incredibly accurate. Blew me away. I spent time looking around the virtual city, and they really nailed most of the smallest details. The construction around the south exit of the station wasn't present, but that's not suprising. I wonder when they did this research?

The textures are very high resolution as well...and, unfortunately, you can't notice that level of detail while playing. The ground often looks blurry, thanks to the lack of AF and the motion blur (which means there ARE no "sharp" areas), yet the textures are razor sharp when you look closely.

That screenshot with the First Kitchen fast food place on the left side -- the Xbox 360 screenshot actually looks identicaly to what First Kitchen used to look like. They changed the outside of all their shops a few months ago.

I remember seeing that Epson building from the PGR3 demo. It's kind of trippy seeing details like that. I know I biffed the sides several times just because I was gawking at the environment. Very gorgeous game... the garage area just floors me. Again, it kind of trips you out when you can look inside the car and see every little detail.

:lol @ traffic...that must've been a fun commute.
:lol That spiral really is real? I remember the first time I encountered it in PGR3. It seemed so ridiculous that I thought they might have made it up (even though I knew the roads were supposed to be real). I just didn't want to believe it.

Speaking of which, check out l88bastard's Sanyo Z4 pics from over on the AVS Forum:





Notice the outline of the room door in the right of the pics. :)

Here's the thread if anyone's interested:

So, post your 360 screenshots and tv u r using

Wow. I didn't know it was the close to real life. I always love going into Photo Mode during the races and looking around at builiding and stuff. I spend a good amount of time doing it too, believe it or not. I love that mode. A great addition to the game.

thing is... it's hard to really be floored by this while playing when there's jaggies all over the place and blurring that just takes away the detail while im driving by.

driving across the manhattan bridge is like driving through a gigantic motion blur especially when you pan the camera to the left or the right of the car.



the garages are sexy as hell though.... i love walking through them just to absorb all the scenery.

my ford gt sitting outside of the converted barn garage looks sexy as hell.

Damn, those are nice... if you didn't have the real-world comparison shots to compare, the majority of those could be mistaken for real pictures if someone were just glancing at them casually. Props to BC (couldn't bring myself to say the obvious :)).

i used to "complain" about PGR3's jaggies a lot, but when i started playing in progressive instead of interlaced most of them disappeared.
A lot of the jagginess was just the interlacing's fault, are you playing in 720p ?
