It's just about everything you've always wanted to know about Deus Ex: Human Revolution , and probably just a bit more.

If you're looking forward to the game, you just have to visit the PlayStation Blog , where director Jean-Francois Dugas and Producer David Anfossi talk at length about the game's setting, story, artistry, and gameplay. First off, they said it's important to view Human Revolution "as a new IP," and they're "re-imagining" the sci-fi world. You will play as Jensen, a security expert "who becomes the unwilling recipient of bleeding-edge cybernetic augmentations." Secondly, they claim they're "very confident" in the PS3 version. Said Anfossi:

"Since the beginning, it was very important for us to not treat the PS3 version as a ‘port’ — you can trust us on that. We’ve worked that way in the past with other games, and it was crazy."

Well, thank goodness for that. They go on to talk about how the game allowed Eidos Montreal to lure "top talent," and how the art direction was inspired by the Renaissance. Said Dugas: "We knew that transhumanism would be one of the main themes, so we started to dig for artistic connections. And Leonardo Da Vinci kept coming up." Being a fan of past Deus Ex titles, all of this sounds mighty encouraging…how's about you?

Why can't multi-platform developers, learn how to develop games on the ps3 as they do for the 360, its been 5 years since the ps3 been released and they still can't figure out the ps3.

Look at it this way…
It takes Naughty Dog 2 years to make an incredible game on one platform. Multi-plat developers are making a game for 2 or 3 platforms (if theres a pc version) in the same time frame. Combine that with the fact that Sony's first party studios are generally the most talented people in the industry and you can see how time can be a precious commodity in multi-plat development. Publishers want the game out as soon as possible (no programmer wants to make a broken game) and they are willing to sacrifice quality for a shorter dev time.

Crytek did an excellent job with Crysis 2, but it has been in development for a long, long time.

I'm excited for Deux Ex, I am, but I REALLY want Thi4f. I hope they're treating it with the same "non port" attitude.

radiohead is absolutely right. five years has been forever. as a ps3 owner i am conditioned to know no matter what the developer says if it's a multiplat game then 360 version is better. i take no pleasure in saying that, but it's true. why do you think people are always so nervous about the ps3 version they need these constant assurances?

It's not always the case, FF13 for example.

don't tell me to get over it. i can express my views just like you can. get over that. i will never get over inferior multiplats. i get no pleasure that it's this way. it's just so frustrating, sometimes. 5 yrs into this console cycle, and it still happens.

@clam

no worries, it's cool. i know you weren't trying to argue. i was just trying to make a frustrating point.

You remind us so often about how you get no pleasure in pointing that PS3 versions of games tend to be inferior yet you do it in almost every thread. I'm not saying you can't express your opinion, I'm merely saying we know already and that it's not as big of a deal anymore as it was in the first few years of the PS3's life. Multiplats are not as bad or inferior as they used to be and no matter how many times you say they are isn't going to make it true.

All those games preform better on PS3. There's even a lot of multiplats that have the exact same performance on both systems. Plus any game that used the PS3 as the lead platform will undoubtedly run better on that system. If a game doesn't run properly on the system it's almost always the developer's fault, not the system itself.

I trust them. I'm still going to grab this on the PC only because, well, it'll run better, look better, play better, and mods to download but if I was going to grab a console version, I'd grab the PS3 one.

Granted I'm sure both console versions look the same, I just game more on my PS3 than my 360.

I might have to borrow/buy this game only because it has cyberpunk elements. I haven't played the previous game before but maybe I can enjoy this one at least in term of the visuals if not gameplay.

crytek said the same thing, the ps3 the top notch version on consoles and it didn't look all that good when it finally came out with the problems it was having. imo its a another dev claiming the ps3 version of mulitiplate will look good, but than turn out to be bad looking or not up par with 360 version, when clearly it should be. ill believe when i see it.

Its a bit blurry compared to the 360 version but it has no screen tearing. 🙂

At least it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

This is great to hear, especially since Deus Ex HR is my most anticipated game this year, even over Uncharted 3. They've been using the PS3 version at various events to show the game off and that's rare for multiplat games. To be honest I never fed into the whole "multiplats are bad on the PS3" shit anyway so I never worry about that stuff. I have a huge stack of multiplats on my shelf and they all look and play fine. Characters having extra pores on their face in the 360 version doesn't bother me.

Yea even that gameplay demonstration from a few days ago they were using the PS3 version. It looked solid to me.

“You can play the entire game without killing anyone, save for the boss fights,” Dugas confirms.

Ok so this sounds like what I've been waiting for, as close to MGS4 as I'm going to get.

So apparently when you hate fps, but you love stealth, you must purchase Deus Ex. I know I will.

I hope they go deep, intelligent and artistic with the plot ala the original.

So far, all is acceptable bar a few moments in a couple of trailers.

Ummm, he said they aren't going to "treat" the PS3 version like a "port". He didn't say it wasn't a port.

well, that's good to know they are showing the ps3 version for once. i will still remain skeptical, however. i am a broken record on these multiplats. crysis 2 looks better on the 360 period. it's more than blurriness. it's like there is a haze in the air. depth of field is better on the 360. crysis 2 was new tech so i got off my butt, and went and checked it out at a friends house. saw no screen tearing whatsoever. we got the inferior version, and all the face offs confirmed that. it's a promising start for a ps3 multiplat, but still not up to snuff. i guess if you like blurinesss, and a hazey washed out look at a lower resolution then good for you. i, for one, do not.

it has been 5 years, and we still get inferior multiplats. enough, already. i will quit complaining when that stops. it drives me nuts, sometimes. new engines, developer reassurences, and still happens.

You're exaggerating. Crysis 2 does not look that bad.

i never said bad. blurry, hazey, washed out compared to its counterpart. have you seen it on the 360 in person? just asking. it's a good looking game on the ps3, but there are differences.
never said it looks bad. just not as good. sorry, that's what my eyes saw.

Yes I have. My best friend who happens to be an Xbot and loves rubbing in inferior multiplats even admitted there is no meaningful difference other than the screen tearing which happens to be on the Xbox version.

I heard the 360 version has more saturated colors, slightly higher resolution (they're both sub-720p contrary to popular belief), smoother framerate, less aliasing, while the ps3 version sports better detailed textures here and there, better shadows, no screen-tear, and the framerate doesn't drop as drastically. Plus, what i say, is even if the 360 version has it's pluses, you don't have to pay to play online.

I was really interested in this after seeing the first trailer, but gameplay wise, and this may sound silly, I prefer 3rd person to 1st person. From what I saw it only switches to 3rd person for certain actions. Regardless I will give this a go no doubt.

thats not what im worried about, im worried about the PC version.
really getting sick of all the console ports us PC gamers are having to put up with!
as the marketing director for ATI said the other day.
PCs today are around 10 times more powerful then consoles, so why dont PC games look 10 times better?
ill tell you why, because developers cant be f*cked!
i wish next gen there was a merge between the big 3, and consoles did not exist anymore it all went to PCs.
that way we never have to worry about shoddy ports AND you dont have to buy and maintain 4 systems!

… all *NEW* PCs today are (etc)… Not all gamer PCs are new, and the developers have to take that into consideration. There's always a gap between cutting edge and mainstream.

But I stopped by a gamer-oriented computer store a few days ago, where they of course have some PCs at display, filled with only the latest hardware. And omg how good it looked. i'm not sure what game were displayed, but we are talking about graphics where light is not only dynamic, but also shine through thin objects like leaves on the trees. It was such a level of details that it was almost scary.

All that's left now is high enough resolutions and then we can start talking about true photo realistic games…!

of course not, but thats not stopping them from having exclusive features only the best of PCs can use.
thats what drives me nuts, you spend all the cash on the hardware then have nothing to use it.
its like hiring a crane to lift a basket of fruit!
what a waste!
allot of PC games dont look that much better then the console games.
homefront, assassins creed brotherhood and crysis 2 for example.
obviously looks better, but not to the scale of the hardware increase!
