Thanks to a heads up from Seibertron.com fan Patrick we have learned that ign.com has a screen cap of the upcoming Transformers game based on the new Transformers Movie. In the picture, we see a very large and clear shot of Bumblebee looking over a very beautifully designed environment. To see the pic, click here

Wow...OK, I was waffling on my decision that my tax refund was going for a PS3. I'm no longer waffling. It will be mine...and the game as well. Beautiful!

Just as an off topic note. You do know the 360 is capable of producing better looking visuals than the PS3 right?

Looks good so far. Definitely needs some Anti-Aliasing though.

That's and the fact the game isn't finished, and Anti-Aliasing doesn't really show up on screen shots of console games to well in most cases.

This games supposed to be coming out on the Wii too right. Can anyone see how Activision can incorporate the Wii remote into the game?

The 360 and the PS3 version will probably look the same as developers will make it for the lowest common denominator and port it to both systems to save money. I just hope the Wii version doesn't tack on crappy controls like Marvel Alliance or Sonic & the Secret Rings did. I don't want to flail my arms around to transform or jerk the controller around to jump and dash. I'm excited to be able to unlock some of the classic designs, and to just run around and transform scaring the snot out of the puny humans.

Posted by Kayevcee on March 2nd, 2007 @ 6:07am CST
Are there going to be unlockable classic designs? New colour schemes I could see, but whole new models (unless they're simplified, which would be fair enough) seems like a lot of work for an easter egg. Mind you, it would pull in punters who would otherwise be put off so it might well happen.

As to the screencap... the background is definitely in-game rendering. The character model is difficult to call, but after a friend told me the jaw-dropping cinematic Halo 3 trailer was all done in-game, I reckon it's not unrealistic to assume that this shot is in-game too.

i"ll just get the PC version that will look better, and have tons of mods for it, and probably online gaming.

This is a little off topic, but what is with all the system bashing here? Why do we have to argue (aside from the fact we love it oh so dearly) about trivial crap like "The 360 can do this better than PS3" and vice versa? Who cares. And dont say that 360 is better than PS3 because of games. The system just came out. 360 didnt have many decent games until shortly before Wii and PS3 started coming out.
Ok, I digress.

This is going to look awesome...on PS3 AND XB360. Can't wait to drive my wife crazy begging her for this game.

I have every system except for a PS3, so whichever version is rated the best is what I'm getting.

Hopefully each version of the game won't have something different from the rest. Because I am a Transformer fan first and foremost, and as Shockwave would say, "logic dicates that I get every version"...that would suck (money out of my pocket).

Planning on getting the PSP and PS2 versions. PSP sounds like it might have more playable characters but graphically it's going to suffer compared to the bigger console versions. Same with the DS version. I'm really wishing I had a PS3 at this point but I can always pick that version up later on the cheap.

The game mesh looks pretty good. I'd almost say this was a PS2 cap just from the lack of anti-aliasing, but I've seen some PS3 and 360 caps looks like that too. Hrm.

Geidiprime- well said! Hardline system factionism has no place on a TF board. The game will look awesome on every next gen system (including the Wii) and hopefully on the PC as well.

Sideshow Sideswipe- complaining about the character design AND intoning that "it's not Transformers" AND first-in-thread! Nice work. Someone give that man a coconut. Seriously, chap- I don't mean any disrespect to yourself or your opinion, but you did manage to tick a lot of boxes with just one line of text there. Well played.

dude don't get the 20g, it is a waste, fire, backwards compatitty bugs, and has no aditions.

I have a 60g so I really reqamend it because it is like the perfect system.

TheMuffen-I have both and I could tell that the ps3 is betterr in grafics. I have friends at an eb games up here and they say that the ps3 has better grafics. I love the 360 but it is to overrated and is not that great. sick it the first bumblebee

I guess you havent played Metal Gear Portable Ops on PSP. Im sure this game will look good on PSP. If they can put MGS on PSP then they can put a GTA style TF game.

Hopefully ill have my PS3 by the time this comes out. And if not ill just get it for 360 and PSP.

I to feel that the PS3 ha better graphics. Have you seen resistance fall of man? The graphics are insane. The 360 has great graphics, look at gears of war, But the PS3 is a more poerfull machine. And i to feel the 360 is overrated.

I to also hate when they make diffren game content for each system. Like SPlinter Cell and Ghost Recon. Why cant they just make the same game for evrey console? Ubi-Soft will never do it because they prefer the xbox. But i hope this game is the same on PS3 and 360. Just make a diffrent game for the PSP since its a handheld.

Bet it'll use the light gun wiimote addon on the Wii edition.
And yes, give me a 360 over a PS3 anyday.
For the price of a PS3, why not just buy a gaming pc? It can do much more for the same price.

lol. If the 360 is overrated, then what is the PS3?
And the PS3 has crap memory, the 360's memory is way more flexible meaning the game developers can put it to better use and thus produce better graphics.
Must suck being a sony fanboy in this generation war :P

PC's shouldn't be for FPSs anyway. First and foremost it is for working on and communicating others with.

Even nowadays consoles have the ability to allow users to communicate. Put Microsoft word-style word processing on them, and the PC is pretty much obsolete.

Sony has been bad from the start.

The screenshot does look real good, but a lil rough around the edges yet.


If the 360 is overrated, than Sony thinks themselves gods. They say that the PS3 is the SEX. I'll be the judge of that. And it's not.

I may be a Nintendo lover, but even I say Xbox 360 kicks more ass.
In fact, I could see a very happy future in which Microsoft and Nintendo work together:

Nintendo's originality and inginuity, combined with Microsoft's techonology and masses and masses of cash. Match made in heaven anyone?

Guys can we please NOT turn this into a pissing contest over which system is better?

You like your one system over the other. Fine. This thread is about the TF game which is coming to ALL the consoles.

I hate how every board I go to these days has a game thread that degenerates into 'my console is better, wah!' People like the console they like. Deal with it.

And to whoever mentioned that this screenshot was appearing in the PS3 section also.. Cool!

That's the way gamers (Fanboys in particular) work. It's not much different from fans of two different sports teams yelling at eachother from across the bar. It's quite like two members of two branches of the US Military yelling at eachother from seperate cars. (Which was so awesome to see) It's about the same as PC vs. Mac, Republican vs. Democrat, whatever you want.

You can't tell people to keep their opinions to themselves, much less on the internet. And if two people with opposing ideas happen to come across eachother, BAM! You have an argument.

Oh, and I throw my hat into the 360 lovefest arena. 360 is dead sexy and the PS3 is overpriced crap.

Maybe I'm spoiled by Gears, but it doesn't look *that* good to me. Then again, I'll reserve judgement until it's final. I think the main weakness is the lighting just doesn't look like it's doing anything.

Not that it matters, I'd probably end up buying it anyway... The problem with being a fan.

Quit arguing about the PS3 and 360, the Wii is the best.
