    So those screens I posted as new, were actually super old:

    Do you notice how every dev who ever worked with MS complains about their idiot PR department(like Ninja Theory)?

    The best thing MS could ever do for themselves is fire their entire PR team, and hire whoever the hell Sony uses.

    On another note - "they don't come anywhere close to representing what the game looks like today" niiiice

    I didn't want to say it at the time, but those shots had some suspiciously funky resolutions going on ;) They also seemed a bit set up just to show off a particular character model or whatever.

    Now aren't we all feeling silly for damage controlling those pictures (ie. in more of a "what the fuck this isn't downgraded" type way). Certain people anyway :p

    Locked because of arguments I assume (classic: http://www.beyond3d.com/forum/showpost.php?p=672042&postcount=28).

    Personally I had a good idea when I saw them (the thread was locked at the time) that they were old.

    Yeah. Epic were doing this in 2004 and most guys aren't even matching it now. And GOW has improved alot since then...

    I know I thought those screens look pretty good if they add some AA. Well those goes well for Xbox 360 owners, due to the current version kicking those screens ass.

    They have had multiple publishers, I doubt his comment was refering to MS exclusively. Actually MS's PR department is very good. From Jade Empire, to Fable, to Halo 1 & 2, they've had many success stories. Regardless of what Ninja Theory states, I doubt a game like that would have been successful with the Xbox demographic anyway :wink:

    Excuse me for not feel silly at all.These pictures still look amasing to me,and i still don't think that they represent a "downgrade".The original PR shots of the UE3 looked fantastic anyway.

    I would be really surprised if GoW ends up looking much better than these shots anyway,which is fine by me.

    " Unfortunately this isn't the first time our publisher has released content not intended for release and it feels like a punch in the gut every time it happens."

    I can only imagine the amateurism going at some places.

    Marketing people just can't see the difference. The worst thing to happen is when they get their hands on a working build of a game that can write out screenshots...
