          speaking of pc ports why the frick didnt they fix the controls for the pc port of metal gear solid 2? im talking about the old version not the one that came out recently in the collection, i get that the PS2 had pressure sensitive buttons and you had to press lightly to aim and press hard to shoot (which by the way sounds fricking awful i never played a game that used those when i had a ps2) but why didnt the made the shoot button a different button on pc? it makes using the fricking riffle near fricking impossible

            Not sure. The port job was outsourced to a literally who company in Japan called "Success" and we all know Japanese devs didn't have a good reputation making windows PC games back then. They were more interested in making erotic adventure games than complex action games.

              i mean other than that, the game works perfectly fine, after installing a fix of course, the only shittiness i noticed is that two cutscenes in the tanker chapter a couple of camera angles looked completely dark but it was fine after the camera angle changed, it was my only way to play the game so whatever.

      I think you're right. MGS2 would also get affected terrible given focus of special effects on both games.
      On the other hand pretty much everything else would have been much better.

        Konami is universally known as doing the worst ports of the era. They literally did not try and actively went against the higher ups trying to port games. The dual VDP used to make specific effects for MGS2 was easily replicated by the basic T&L xbox hardware, Konami just didn't care to adapt it.

        Anonymous

        I don't think 60, but I think it could definitely run SotC. The big issue is that, if we're being realistic, most multiplat 6th gen titles had porting issues and SotC would be no exception, as everything is limited by time and budget. What would happen is that most devs would pick one console as their primary one to develop for with the other consoles being weeks/months behind the main SKU, or they'd be developed after the main SKU neared completion.

        Any console that wasn't the main SKU would suffer from missing or bugged visuals, and any extra visual features a non-primary SKU may have don't usually make up for this fact. Of course the GameCube and Xbox could do almost everything the PS2 could do but better (minus fillrate-heavy effects) of you had infinite time and budget, but time and budget constraints always kick in and limit what devs can reasonably do with their ports. Because of the PS2's popularity, a lot of multiplat titles (maybe a majority?) focused on PS2 first and suffered issues when ported to other platforms, though performance was usually a bit better on Xbox.

        Do you think that in 2001 the developers immediately knew how to use the PS2 hardware to the fullest and would also rewrite all the game code for a decent port?

          it looks like shit from 2000 to 2006, there are some games that look "better" because the devs didn't use as many post processing effects, but the ps2 just had awful image quality and you can't argue that, which is why you have to attempt to pivot towards graphical capabilities.

            Microsoft probably paid Ubisoft a ton of money to do everything necessary to port the PC version of Chaos Theory to a 2001 PC (aka Xbox).

            Stolen (PC/XBOX/PS2) has better graphics than the PS2 version of Chaos Theory. Proving that the PS2 version (GC also) of chaos theory could have looked a lot better.

                Could say exactly the same about FF7. I stop playing that game when there was a 10 minutes scenes in a subway where I have to read dialogues and just wait without being able to do anything. It's FF7 the root cause of modern gaming. Not HL.

                Its a JRPG, many of them are story heavy to begin with. Meanwhile modern movie games like TLOU, nu Gow, RDR2 and more are far more similar to Half Life 1 and 2 than they are to FF7

            Nta, and I don't fully agree with him, but I do noticed that, starting with the PS1, it seemingly became the norm(1) to fill games with cutscenes (and, because of multiple loadings, it became a chore to skip them, if even possible). Is it Sony's fault? I don't know. The company did condone and even stimulated the practice, to differentiate them as much as possible from previous competitors (that's also from where "3D over 2D policy" came). However, I can't measure the impact it had. Perhaps Sony was just a catalyst for something that would happen anyway, though later on.

            1 - Yes, it happened before, many times, and I'm not saying Sony invented this. I'm just saying about how it quickly became the usual practice.

              Sony counts sales the same way, except with less warranty. I knew people who had to buy several PS1s, PS2s and PS3s cause they kept breaking down basically as soon as the warranty period was over. All of those consoles had bad designs which made the console self destruct over time.

                360 had a 60% failure rate compared to the 5% of the ps3. If MS didn't have eternal problems with it it wouldn't need to design 20 different xbox variants each with a revised chipset as it only increases manufacturing costs.

                It's not 60%, it's 100%. Every 360 before Jasper had hardware issues. I think Fat PS3s also had a similar issue, but PS3 became popular after Slim so I'm not sure. Super Slim also might have an issue, but I'm not familiar with it.
                Similar every OG Xbox also has issues with capacitors.

                I don't think PS1 and PS2 have anything similar to those.

                Everyone of them are built wrong. They didn't fix the main issues until Jasper. Worst part is they knew hardware had design issues, and hide that from people.

                I think that's the main reason PS3 eventually overtook it, rather than Sony's efforts. People simply lost trust in Xbox afterwards. PS4 released with great sales and didn't had any good games.

          Sony marketed to third worlders to buy their console for cheap cd, and with the ps2, dvd players. When the taxes/tariffs/etc are many times more for a cd head unit, you can convince Sharnelle to buy a ps1 in South America much easier for her 7 children to listen to rap.

    I had all 3 at some point (PS2, Xbox, GC) and most Xbox exclusives looked incredible compared to PS2 or even GC's best looking games. Fable, Halo, Jade Empire, DOA Ultimate, Half Life 2, etc. I would imagine God of War 1 & 2 would have looked even iller on the Xbox, like an updated HD-type not too far off from the PS3 remasters. Interestingly enough, all 3 ports of SoulCalibur 2 looked good on all 3 systems with very little noticeable differences (maybe the Xbox version had slightly darker shadows). It was a worthy successor to the 1st game's Dreamcast legacy.

      Soul Calibur 2's multiplat porting is extremely impressive. It's a great-looking game on all platforms and I can't find a single visual difference between them, aside from video output which is down to hardware quirks unrelated to asset and effects fidelity.

          Our rationale for choosing the fifth-generation systems as a cut-off is not based on age, but instead on what we deem to be particular technical attributes of these consoles compared to the sixth-generation and subsequent consoles. Specifically, we believe that there is enough of a style difference between the fifth- and sixth-generation consoles in a way we do not believe exists to the same extent for the sixth- and seventh-generation consoles or beyond that there is a benefit to focusing on the former (and earlier).

          The sixth generation was the first full generation of consoles where the use of bitmap-based 2D in games was purely for the purposes of style rather than technological expedience. The sixth generation also saw the rise of certain styles of games which still dictate the games we play today, including Halo, which presaged an era where first-person shooters would be designed with consoles as first-class citizens, changing from Quake-influenced twitch shooters to slower games with limited weapon carrying and also popularising the use of vehicles in FPS games beyond just replicating rail shooter mechanics; Grand Theft Auto III and its sequels, which crystallised the attributes of the open-world third-person action-adventure; The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, which saw the first signs of the series becoming a mainstream success, with a tighter scope over its sprawling predecessor; RE4 set the standard for all modern third person shooters, along with the start of what have become gargantuan series such as Call of Duty and Battlefield. There are precedents in other fields in maintaining strict characterisation based on style that does not progress simply because of age.

    PS2 was weakest console of the gen, weaker than GameCube. But consider this: nobody knew what an Xbox was until the 360

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      It's all about hype, timing, and release dates. PS2 was 2000, built a large base from PS1 success & Sony cashed in. Xbox & GC were far too late with very damaged fanfare. With Microsoft, they were newjacks in console space. With Nintendo, they lost a lot of steam in N64's failure to keep a teen/young adult fanbase. So when 360 dropped in late '05, they were ahead in the 7th Gen and absolutely killed 2006 & 2007 with classic after classic (DOA4, Saints Row, Halo 3, BioShock, Mass Effect, Prey, Gears of War, Deadrising, DOAXtreme2). It took PS3 almost 7 years to finally surpass 360 in overall sales.

        I believe PS2 has some advantage for special effects. I'm not just talking about bloom. Say on Red Dead Revolver despite Xbox being by far better than the PS2 version, PS2 version have better effects for things like film grain effects. I also saw similar things in other games. Burnout games have better more particle effects on PS2 as well. Yes Xbox still looks better, but if we are talking about special effects specifically, than no. PS2 is better there I believe. Not that it matters much.

          PS2's edge is fillrate and the vector units which basically comes down to you can just throw shit at the screen, faking anything you set your mind to, very very quickly and it'll be impossible to tell it apart from hardware doing it or it being faked. It's an insane solution to a problem Sony had the foresight to see and developers used it to do things like HDR an entire console generation before it was common place. It also means particle effects/transparencies can look insanely good on PS2 and on other consoles they looked like cheap 2D cards spitting around. Xbox can do particle effects well too but it starts to tank the framerate long before it matches PS2 fidelity.

          Turns out there's lots of things you can do by just faking it by throwing shit at the screen, and this has held up extremely well.

            There is nothing to gain from doing reverse engineering for free as a pro software guy, the only reason 360 had an og xbox emulator (a shoddy one, but still) was because the software engies were getting paid by microsoft to make it happen (and access to official docs helps a lot).

              The OG xbox emu on the 360 was thought to be a completely impossible thing to do and was an absolute technical wizardry, the people who did that got the official job title of EMULATION NINJA.

              Microsoft implemented a shady firmware layer to prevent users from turning an Xbox into a regular PC.
              This firmware and lack of documentation is what makes emulation difficult (in addition to the no interest factor).
              Again, Xbox (generic PC without windows) was a mistake.

              This is not even remotely true. There's no clue how the superscalar pipeline of a x86 works, and the gpu is a full custom job (it's more advanced than a geforce 3, it's more like half a geforce 4) with zero documentation on it.

                It's not magic tho. The xbox had normal 32bit executables. You could switch CPUs and ram in it and it worked. It was a PC with a custom OS. The "emu" is just a launcher.

                The Xbox 360 emulating the OG Xbox is a miracle of software engineering, despite all the bugs that came with it. Let's not sell it short. With regards to processing power, it's like a SNES being compatible with a bunch of PC-Engine games via built-in software emulation (disregarding the obvious legal infringements this would cause).

                It's not emulation. Xbox would run natively on a 360 if MS didn't make the mistake of cration a reduced direcx version for the og xbox. There was a xbox "emulator" project that attempted a simliar thing but didn't go far because the custom directx had no documentation.

                OG Xbox is x86, but Xbox 360 is PowerPC. Playing OG Xbox games on 360 requires either excellent CPU instruction emulation, or (as another anon mentioned) recompiled binaries. So it's nothing to do with having swappable parts.

                It's not as complicated as other emulation is due the CPU's sharing architecture and both consoles using an API which was essentially a superset of Direct X, programming a PS1 emulator that runs on dreamcast is crazier (BLEEM) and programming a ps1 emulator that works on PSP flawlessly also is (made by the same guy who made BLEEM after Sony hired him funny enough).

    Iirc it came out halfway through the ps2's life, so better graphics should be epected. Also, it's just a powerful PC graphics card that got thrown in there, not a custom made one. Microsoft was basically just dipping their toes in the water and were prepared to lose a shit ton of money over it. Original plan was to just buy Nintendo. They wanted to install a central hub in your home that controlled your entire house and thought vidya would be the way to do it. Evil company with lame games. They should've stuck to making flight simulators.

        dude that just isn't True, Xbox had a card based on Geforrce 3 and Geforce 4 cards came out in 2001. By 2002 ATI launched their 9700 pro which blew the top of the market and was probably between 4-8x the performance of the xbox GPU.

    Xbox games could look great, but PS2 attracted the best artists that generation and Xbox often had that cheap graphics card box art look. Most often its resources were wasted on unimpressive games and it's sad! I think later titles like Scrapland look great, early titles like Blinx look great, Halo has its moments but games like Azurik, Blood Wake and Brute Force look so ugly.

    The differences between multiplats is really interesting, because PS2 versions kept up very well and look distinct to Xbox versions.

      Yes! In early-mid 3D games (hell even nowadays) art style was everything. And because PS2 was vastly more popular than its competitors, many studios often put PS2 first with it came to multiplats, which meant ports to other platforms often suffered visual bugs even if there were extra graphical features.

      Baked vertex lighting was, and still is, OP. Many devs didn't get it, and almost every single dev nowadays still doesn't get it.

    The NV2A was pretty beastly in 2001. It was like a GeForce 3 with DX8.1, which was made specifically for the Xbox and ported to Windows, and has an extra texture shader unit like a Geforce 4. The CPU is closer to a mobile CPU with some customization. It had 64MB's of unified RAM, which was double that of the PS2's. Though PC's at the time were anywhere around 128MB's to 512MB's of SDRAM and 64 to 128MB's VRAM video cards. But the Xbox could still give most home PC's at the time a run for their money.

    Its impossible to dispute that the Xbox was by far the most capable console of it's generation. PS2 games were comparable to Dreamcast once developers managed to properly utilise it's awkward architecture, there really is little basis of comparison between PS2 and Xbox

    • 1 month ago

      Funny you should say the PS2 had an awkward architecture. Because the reason Xbox games tended to have poor ports of PS2 games was because the Xbox was a completely different kind of awkward. Couldn't do framebuffer effects properly, had shit all DMA, everything needed to be written as a shader because it was impossible to have the CPU write to GPU address space without jumping through slow hoops, OS that got in your way... There are others, but you get the gist.
      People gaslight themselves about how x86+PCGPU is "easy" and the "standard" despite the fact that it's the poor man's architecture that won out by being the last man standing after the competitors all gave up or made shitty decisions that ended their run early.
      The xbox had some pretty games because shaders WERE the new hotness and everyone wanted in on the normal mapping and per-pixel lighting goodness, but you also have to be clear that the rest of the package was dogshit we could have done without.

First one was a slim that had some problem that caused the console itself to scratch the shit out of the discs, so we got a new phat, the phat years later stopped reading discs, we had to repair it, then it worked again, about 2 years later the eject button stops responding to being pressed, and I didn't have a disc in it so I couldn't eject through in console menu, making it unplayable.

      For me both OG Xbox and 360 are the superior console at the and of the day. People also forget PS3 generally had much lower FPS. Screen tearing is nothing compared to that.
