Are These The Graphics We Should Expect From The PS4?
PlanetSide 2 launched this week with some of the best visuals we've seen for a while, but is it something we can expect for next-gen?
PlanetSide 2 launched this week. It is a free-to-play FPS MMO with battles on an epic scale, not unlike CCP's Dust 514. PlanetSide 2 is a game that would work extremely well on consoles, so why isn't it available for Sony's PS3?
Well, the graphics.
We're playing a lot of PlanetSide 2 for review at the moment, and one thing we're constantly amazed by is just how good looking Sony Online Entertainment has made PlanetSide 2.
There has been a lot of rumours and talk about whether or not PlanetSide 2 could come to PS3 and, to be honest, we don't think it is capable enough.
We won't deny the PS3 is a very capable machine, but take a look at the visuals on PlanetSide 2 in our screenshot gallery and we're sure you'll agree that it likely won't be until next-gen that we'll see console visuals that can match this.
Which is a shame because, from what we've played already, PlanetSide 2 is well suited to the console. It might be an MMO, but it doesn't seem as intensive as most MMOs, even when compared to Dust 514.
