I know the MGS saga has clones aplenty but this is ridiculous. OK, it’s really not that much about clones this time around. I’m just getting at the fact that Kojima has released a comparison video for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The video, which you can watch below, showcases the graphical power of all four systems that MGSV: GZ is to be released on. the PS3, 360, PS4, and XB1 are churning out superb graphical output in my opinion. Of course there are to be differences to take notice of, what with the PS4 and XB1 being the newer more powerful of the bunch. But it’s really safe to say that the game looks fucking amazing across the board. No need to fuss about intricacies unless you really are the type to gloss over every fucking pixel and polygon. Oh, did I mention it looks FUCKING AMAZING? Yes, FUCKING A-MA-ZING.
This GIF I found is not exactly too relevant at this point but showcases the differences between the first time and second time that the MGSV:GZ gameplay trailer were released.
You can see that the blue tint in the second instance has been added in favor of the greener subdued look for a more dramatic tone. The lighting on Chico’s face for example is brightened in contrast to the background to give a him a more frightened emotion. It shows us how grim the consequences of his supposed actions are.
Here’s a quick gif I found of the PS3 VS PS4. Pretty big difference in resolution if it’s THAT important to any of you.
Looks like Konami has posted some comparo shots of MGSV across the four platforms spanning two generations. PS3 next to PS4 and 360 with XB1. While it IS obvious that the now current gen pics look nothing less than stunning, the last gen shots are no slouch either. Better lighting, shadows, and overall sharpness in detail do stand out on the PS4/XB1, contrasting the ps3/360 versions fuzzier, less focused counterpart. But let’s not make this an SNES VS GENESIS battle, OK?
Current Gen/Next Gen Comparison Chart
Konami even made a Friggin chart for goodness sake! Honestly, they ALL look great. Plus, the newer generation of systems are more powerful. There is no real argument here. The only thing we gamers need fret over is which to get, and that depends on which console you already own. If you own current gen then make it all the more viable by purchasing for them. If you’re like me and own last gen, then make the appropriate choice. Or you could buy the game and then wait, save money, then buy the next gen console that corresponds to the game at hand. Either way its WIN WIN.
I did run into this which had me cracking up, Hahahahaha:
MGSV drops next month so lets be glad it isn’t exclusive on one system or the other.
