Capcom Japan has provided the first comparison screenshots of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions of its upcoming Strider reboot.

On PlayStation 4, Strider runs at 1080p / 60 frames per second

On PlayStation 3, Strider runs at 720p / 30 frames per second

As announced earlier this week, the Strider reboot will launch for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan on February 22. The PlayStation 4 version will be a 2,000 yen download title, while the PlayStation 3 version will be available in 3,990 yen packaged and download versions.

The PlayStation 3 version includes the game, a special video, and product code to download the original two Strider games on PSone.

A “Special A Class Limited Edition” will include a copy of the game, a special video, a product code to download Strider and Strider 2, an illustration collection, three-disc soundtrack CD, instruction card and sticker set, mask, badge, clear file, spacer, and special box—all for 12,000 yen. Pre-orders at Capcom’s online store include a PlayStation 3 e-Capcom custom theme.

The Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC versions of Strider have not been dated for Japan. All versions of the game are due out in North America and Europe in early 2014.

    Uhhh…Maybe I’m missing some nuances, but I kind of think the PS3 shot looks better O_o

      Lolz. Yeah.
      I’ve looked at the images a few times now.

      “The PS4 version features new opaque visuals – now you can’t see through our lighting effects.”

      I can kind of see more stuff happening on the wall in the PS4 version, though. So yeah, I don’t know.

    Strider coming to Next-generation consoles? SWEET

  • Guest

    No notable differences to see here, No fucks to give here.

    Still hoping this ends up decent if not good.

  • bloodiOS

    So, the PS4 version not only operates at 1080p@60fps but also seems to have additional light sources, added bloom, SSAO, and superior particle effects

  • miyamoto

    No offense to great western devs like Naughty Dog but this is another westernized Japanese gem game franchised bastardized at the hands of Crapcom and Double Helix Games !
    When will they learn!?

    Dark Void, Lost Planet, Bionic Commando, Dmc, etc.

    Have capcom really lost its faith on Japanese talent?

    • bloodiOS

      Perhaps it is a bit unfair to judge it this early? I mean, remember, this is a collaboration between Double Helix Games and Capcom’s Osaka studio (source). I personally believe the Japanese team is still in charge of the project and Double Helix is only there to handle the coding and such. Really, if this was entirely in the hands of Double Helix, I would be disappointed too. However, the reality is that this is a collaboration and they’re likely not the one in charge of the project, so let’s keep our disappointment in check before actually being able to experience the final product for ourselves.

        The quality aside, the point is kinda of that Capcom is outsourcing a lot these days…..and the question is ….why?

        Thats pretty much what he is bringing up despite his pre-bias

        • bloodiOS

          And that isn’t the point I’m debating as I don’t really want to get involved with it. I just don’t think this particular game should be lumped together with the other ones he mentioned (at least not yet…)

          • Budgiecat

            Yeah I know I get your point; but my point was to look past that because that is obvious. The point not to look past which we can discuss about now, is why is Capcom outsourcing

        • ECM

          The reason they are out-sourcing is it is cheaper than staffing up internally, almost assuredly.

          (It may also have much to do w/ what’s left of their cash reserves–if a chunk of that is denominated in dollars, that would explain why these studios keep getting work over what most would perceive as more competent studios.)

  • PrinceHeir

    wait so despite the PS4 version being 1080p and 60FPS.

    Strider 1 and 2 is not available? if that’s the case then it’s better to get the PS3 version instead unless you already purchase the games on PSN as a separate download.
