FFX / FFX-2 HD Announced with screenshots
#1
I don't see too much of a difference between PCSX2 on 4x compared to these screenshots. Do you guys?

Probably the only difference is Native Widescreen, high poly cutscene (Not FMV) models are the default in all situation. redesigned GUI (shame Gabest isn't around to do a texture replacement system like Dolphin..) native 1080p.

Probably all they did, If we are lucky they might have added better lighting, possibly threw the original textures in photoshop and scaled them up, Possibly 60fps internal instead of 30fps (which I assume is what ffx ran at) But that's about it.

Once i'm home i'll try and take screens of the same scene in PCSX2 and see how it compares
Intel Core i5-4690k @4.5ghz
Samsung 16GB DDR3 @2000mhz
GeForce GTX 680 4GB

They used the wrong models to "remaster" ..

The high poly models they had in the original PS2 were better then the ones they're using now. They tried to pretty-up the low poly ones from the original game, instead of working on the better ones, ugh..

They still upped the textures. Comparison:

Although honestly, I doubt I'll get it. PCSX2 + Widescreen hack + 1080p = good enough.

FFX International has bonus features + English voices + English text.
FFX-2 International + Last Mission will be getting an fan English translation:

I'm buying it. The improvement is big enough to warrant it imo.

Nice comparison.

There's no doubt they look better, my point was, I found it a bit weird that they worked on the lower quality originals, rather then the high quality (close-up) ones .

It would have been less work for them, and would have yielded better results. Again, they're still an obvious improvement to the old in-game models.

By the look of that screenshot, they've also included specular mapping, post AA, and new lighting.

Yeah, they should have just got rid of all lower quality models and replaced them with the higher ones. But it's Square Enix we're talking about. Rolleyes

In two cases, the lighting seems worse:

Check out comparisons 2 and 4. I feel the lighting looks better in the PS2 version.

didn't somebody find those higher quality models in the original PS2 data files?

Edit: Sorry! I should really read the thread first >.<

I like the improved textures but the new version looks too flat. I'm also disappointed they're still using low poly models in some cutscenes. So not too excited about it, but if the compilation was $20 I'd bite.

I remember when the first news/rumours of this were going around, it was believed that FFX was getting ported to the Crystal Tools engine, now that would have been nice. Lazy Square.

I believe this may be a test run for future Final Fantasy 'remasters' though.
