View Full Version : X-box graphics not so good.
07-07-2001, 07:23 AM
It has come to my attention that the graphics on the X-box are not so great. True some of them look awesome, but others look horrible. True also that some of the games have not been worked on long, but I am seeing better graphics on gamecube games even after mere days of work. Also gamecube seems more consistently good while X-box has some good and a lot of bad, and this is the more costly system.

hey, they've still got months to improve, jeeze. probably some of the GCN games look like shit right now, but nobodys pickin on them, are they? No. Just let it alone.

Hmm... Basically, what he said. :p
Also, keep in mind that all that we've seen(Except for the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X screenshots from xbox.com.... And in the infamous "Fuzzy Xbunny"... :D ) were all done on 2nd phase development kits, which are basically a normal Personal Computer equipped with a Geforce3... And the majority of those games we saw weren't even optimized for those kits... You'll be seeing some major improvements, trust me. ;) The guy whos working on Project EGO has said it'll look 100% better... Have you seen the screenshots from that game? Do you know how incredibly good it looks? How could it get 100% better than that?!... Wow...

also 'ports' from pc and ps2 arnt going to look alot better all the sudden.a game needs to be build from the ground up for DX8 and the NV2A to make the diffrerence.

well ill say that these bad graphics right now arent helping xbox much... i harken back to my software etc.. visit about 3 weeks ago now:
i go in there and this like 30 year old guy is asking about xbox.. the basic questions you know.. and he says well how much will it cost? the salesman says 300 for the system, about 50 for games.. the guy makes this you konw... noise from the steep price.. seeing his chance the salesman jumps in with a "but you can reserve this system now, and its 100 bucks cheaper..look at this" he whips out a magazine and compares rogue leader to some other game and the dude is like... and this system is cheaper?? salesman: yep the dude reserves a GCN right then and there.. behind him are about 5 other onlookers to reserve their GCN's...
what im getting at is that the general public doesnt know that xbox is going to get better (hell i read a LOT of game news and i was completely unawares of this fact until well after E3)

Wow thats pretty cool simps.

I still can only wonder on the quality as their time ticks away, but still even after a greaat deal of improvement I doubt they would look much better than gamecube's graphics. Even if it did anyone with eyes can see GCN has d*mn good graphics and it is getting at a point where better graphics are so near to pointless it isn't funny.

2 gen will make the true compairison possible.
keep in mind that gc game were farter in development since before the delay gc was going to launch in jp this month so games like luigi were practically finished

The X-box has the power, but they aren't using it properly. GCN, although it has less power, is using it all. That is the difference.
But you can bet your bottom dollar we will see something amazing from X-box soon.

XB will probably turn out a more likeable system than any of sega's (or at least the same likeability). it's just people don't know about it. only people like us who surf the net and get the latest news really knows about the crashing system and everything that happened. But, since every one doesn't know about it, it won't be popular on launch. but in a year it will become more and more popular, guarentee it.

well at launch the console will be sold out simple by the fact that there are only 800.000 available and the 'hardcore' gamers will get those. form then the 500 million marketing campain will take over which starts in september.and if you want to play a xbox just to test it out and you live in the us you can in september because they are having a mobile assault tour in the 50 major city's of the US where u can play the launch games.

I may sound old fashioned, but from what I've seen the games will lack the certain unreal feel that makes games so fun. Finally the only thing I really see exclusive on x-box is somewhat superior graphics. Which most gamers would give up for great gameplay.

:rolleyes: (<-- I've been using that face quite a bit lately. :D) Why do you think so many people bought the PS2 last year?(Well, besides the name Playstation)... It was the graphics. Son-- Err... I mean, the media kept going on about how the PS2 was so much more powerful than the Dreamcast and anything else before it, and kept showing off these clips/screenshots of games like Tekken Tag Tournament, Ridge Racer V, and Madden 2001.
Sure, for us hardcore gamers, we're not going to buy games for graphics. But the fact of the matter is, there are more casual gamers than hardcore gamers, and most casuals buy the games because of the graphics. Want proof? Look how many copies of The Bouncer were sold...

yeah bouncer horrible game.
well im off on vacation(spain,costa brava) see you guys in a week.

The Bouncer also could have sold as it was made by Squaresoft and their many fans thought it would be good. Graphics probably helped though.
