Easily one of the most impressive demo’s at E3 was Killzone for the PS3. My god that video was perfect. But as it turns out what we saw was really rendered by the PS3 at 5 fps, and speed up to 30 fps, which sucks. Guerilla Games has recently fessed up to as much, but also explained themselves and given us an update on that status of Killzone PS3:
“The video shown at E3 was not in real time. It was a CGI demo sped up from 5 FPS as you said. The development team did this because we could not make a demo of that calibur at 30-60 FPS on the hardware we had at the time. Now however, the team is working the game on PS3 alpha kits, and it is looking just as impressive as the demo, at 30 FPS. The game is still in the very early stages of development, and I expect that it will release with visuals that are just as impressive as those in the E3 demo. We are planning on showing in game footage before too long, and we can’t wait to see the public’s reaction to it.”
Those are the words of Arjan Brussee, Development Director at Guerilla Games. And if she’s telling the truth… My God.
oh my god thats the greatest news ever but just as impressive makes me nervous, i wish sheda said more impressive than the demo.
