This game looks fucking incredible. The colors, that music. The first game was an unfortunatley overlooked gem, this game deserves to be in sonys first party lime light

This got me thinking maybe this game will be one of the showcases for Neo?
I think the mix of bright, sunny environments with shadowy areas mixed in could demonstrate HDR very well indeed.

Pickups could sparkle even brighter against already-light environments.



Even the menu would twinkle with brilliant stars.



It has great art but it's certainly not a tech showcase game.
It very much is, the only standout flaw I'm seeing is heavy pop-in when speeding between sky-islands and milder pop-in elsewhere.

That's the first time I'm seeing this. Is this game menu? It looks amazing...

How so? Compare this game to Uncharted 4 or GoW or FFXV. Those are the types of games that will appeal to people tuning into the Neo reveal. This game looks great but it is very clearly low budget compared to other games.

It's a showcase of strong technology, moreso than FFXV which is kind of a mess.

Popularity is a different thing entirely.

Small budget, small profit.

That is what I am hoping the situation will be. GR2 getting a 100K+ opening would make me flip though.

Sure but I'm asking why GR2 is a technical showcase.
Crisp clean shadows, good texture filtering, attractive lighting response on metals, goo, glass, brick and so on, parallax occlusion mapping, dense and varied particle animations, heavy destruction and physics objects in battle, animated cloth, clouds blowing through the sky islands (or sky islands floating through the clouds) I need to see the clouds more clearly but there appears to be a nice sense of depth.

GR2's art style is unique, even amongst cel/toon shaded games and there's plenty of subtle detail I think could be presented even more clearly to the press, watching and playing HDR source+display demos.

Looks good. However, i read a comment or two saying delay this for a bit as Final Fantasy would be out the same time. I'd say yes, because Gravity Rush vs Final Fantasy would not be beneficial for Gravity Rush sales.
