Star Ocean Developers Show Off Pretty New Tech Demo | PS3Blog.net

Tri-Ace is best know for their anime styled character models in role-playing games like Star Ocean and the recent Resonance of Fate. This week the studio shared a new tech demo that’s light years ahead of their previous works.

The demo is rendered in real time on the PS3 and 360 and runs at 30 frames per second in 720p, using real-time lighting and shadows with features that include “physically-based shading models, physically-based lighting and image-based global illumination.”

Called “tri-Ace Technical Demo Trailer 2011”, the demo is said to be a ‘Physically Based Rendering version 0.1’ that uses Tri-Aces game engine. While it does look impressive when compared to what Tri-Ace has done in the past, this demo isn’t related to any title the Japanese developers are currently working on.

    Very impressive. I wonder does this mean a new star ocean is in the works. Also wondering if this will be on Nintendos new console, which is suppose to be more powerful than the 360 and ps3. Im not gonna lie im really excited for nintendos new console. Mainly cuz now that nintendo is going HD, we can finally see who the real winner is. The wii doesnt count as a nex-gen console in my eyes.

    Sure, you could do that… but it wouldn’t be really fair now, would it?

  6. Beautiful trailer.

    Story: The dude is some kind of old, washed up astronaut from the future. He wasn’t permitted to go on the most recent mission. His pride is hurt. Cue the cute elf looking chick to talk some sense into him! After some time, he agrees to go with her on some old raggedy, broken down ship… Why? Because the fate of the entire universe lies in their hands! DUN DUN DUN!

    I think the idea behind the trailer shows how Tri- Ace is growing up. The guy in the suit is visiting his old home where he grew up playing Tri-Ace titles ( that’s where the Star Ocean action figures come in ). I think what Tri-Ace is trying to say is that they are moving away from their old style and will be embracing a more realistic approach in the future, graphics wise. Which is what the missle launch at the end implies.

    At least that’s what I gathered from the video.

    @ Pedro i think it would be fair. I mean nintendos new console wont be light years ahead of ps3 or even 360. Well maybe 360 lol. This will finally be the true clash of the titans. Prepare for WAR!!!

    I understand your point, but I really don’t think it’s fair.

    5 years in gaming is a really long time. Not only that, think about technology, processors and memory capacity. All that evolves really quickly.

    It would be silly of Nintendo not to make a console better than the PS3 and the 360. Of course it will be better.

    But is it really a competitor? I don’t think so either. I hardly believe Nintendo will change their market focus/share so that’s not really a competition, since I don’t think PS3/360/PC games will be making it to “Wii HD”. Instead, we’ll have way better Nintendo games, like Zelda, Mario and whatnot.

    I don’t think I’ve played the Star Ocean titles and I’m not familiar with Tri-Ace at all. So I pulled that out of my as$

    What you say makes plenty of sense though ^^

  11. Looks pretty impressive.
