That's what happens when you try to unify different art styles into one IMO, different devs try to go for different styles, RB1's case was clrealy aiming for the Cell-arc face while maintaining those Buu-arc muscles

Tons of screenshots from Bandai Namco's Europe FaceBook page:
Er, hope these aren't the graphics of the PS4/PC version (they look good not great).

That's what he's been doing. I'd say don't worry too much about it, even if the difference in graphics is just resolution, the footage shown in the trailers/recent demos have looked great and if this is the last PS360 DBZ game, then it is a good looking parting gift.

I love when the games add additional things to cutscenes like the pudding cups. Unlike most Dragon Ball Z cutscenes where it's normally just the models standing stiffly talking to one another (Tenkaichi and Raging Blast series I am mostly referring to)

Tenkaichi 2 had some nice cutscenes even though they were not as good as the ones from Budokai 1. Burst Limit, Tenkaichi, Raging Blast, Ultimate Tenkaichi and Battle of Z had little to no movement which made them really...crappy. Tenkaichi 3 didn't even have them IIRC, it was just those "push R3" interactions in the middle of the battles.
Xenoverse needs to have more sweet action on its cutscenes cause the Story Mode they plan to make begs for some nice and flashy presentation. Imagine all this Beerus scene being shown to us as white text in a purple box. It would absolutely kill the excitement/comic relief of the whole "PUDDING!!" disaster.

DBZ has not had a great story mode in a long time. Tenkachi 2/Sparking 2 and Ultimate Blast/Tenkachi try to be like Budokai 3's story mode and they end up being a water down version of Budokai 3's story mode instead. Budokai 3 allow you to go into different paths of the story while those two games did not. I remember the scans of Budokai 2/Sparking had the player inside a city and everyone thought you would room around a huge environment while we never got anything like that. I just hope the story mode in XV won't be total bullshit.

I don't see what there is to complain about these graphics really. I mean, Vegeta's face is a little derpy in that one shot, but probably looks fine in motion. Besides that, everything else looks fine.

Since we're also on the topic of time traveling and such, what about the appearance of an Adult Goten, finally? Adult Gotenks, and Adult Chibi Trunks from Heroes as well. :D Any chance we could be seeing Super Saiyan Ultra or Ascend grade 1 and 2 Trunks (Big Buff Trunks) in the mix as well? One of my favorite characters.

I've been reading these 'updated' character lists, nothing.

To be perfectly honest, I couldn't care less about the fans a re-issue might alienate because if all they're concerned about is being able to scalp the people who were either unaware of the Dragon Boxes or couldn't afford them at the time, they're just leeches and deserve to have their greed backfire on them.

Hey guys, recently I preordered far cry 4. So my Preorder incentive code was emailed to me but didn't work.
I'm wondering if the pre order costumes+ss4 vegeta Codes of Xenoverse will be emailed to us or will it be in the game box?
Has anyone pre ordered battle of z ? If so could you tell if the codes were in the box or otherwise.
Thanks.
Someone hit me up when Krillin, Tien, Yamcha, Chiaotzu :lolno:, Goten, Buu, and Gohan :!: :!: :!: become relevant again :?

Well Xeno's graphics are nothing special, moreover its models but maybe it looks good in motion (I haven't played it yet).

July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

It is possible. If we really get a new Freeza form it's going to be a major plot point, but Super Saiyan God was, too, and we knew he was coming way before the movie's release. They could reveal Freeza's new form before Xenoverse's release date and the game wouldn't have much of a problem bringing a "spoiler" to the roster.

Sorry to come again in ranty mood and for being an asshole, but I will be pissed off, If this last gen graphics is what I will get for PS4, because *duh* will be paying hella lot more money for the same game.
After playing on current gen, games like Alien: Isolation or Assasin's Creed for example, no one can seriously ask me how is the graphic bad. Well, it isn't bad, but it isn't good for PS4/XONE.

BOG content, I am sold!!! More so after that debacle of Battle of Z, which I was hyped a lot for, only to be turned off quickly when I learned more :)

Well, to be fair, it is cross-gen. Besides, it's a Dragon Ball game. A small-time anime title. You're never going to get AAA level stuff with these games.
