<div class="bbcode_quote_body">New York, NY– July 22, 2010– 2K Games announced today that its upcoming epic action crime game, Mafia II, will have a downloadable demo available worldwide on August 10 for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. Set in the fully realized and immersive 1940’s and 1950’s American urban cityscape of Empire Bay, soon all gamers will be able to experience the decadent and meticulously crafted atmosphere, intense shooting and driving gameplay, and character narrative in Mafia II that is set to be released on August 24 in North America, August 26 in Australia and August 27 internationally.

The Mafia II demo invites gamers to dive into the“Buzzsaw” level, where Vito and his buddies, Joe and Henry, are sent to take out a mobster known as“The Fat Man”. While the epic game spans two decades, the Buzzsaw demo takes place during the summer of the‘50s– a time considered the“Birth of Cool”, and with it, rock‘n’ roll, hot rods, and rebellious attitudes. The demo showcases the type of vibrant edge-of-your-seat action, as well as a slice of the expansive city of Empire Bay in the colorful era.

Mafia IIlooks to be the industry's most compelling action crime game to date. Players take control of Vito Scaletta, who is making a name for himself on the streets of Empire Bay. He’s someone who can be trusted to get a job done. Together with his buddy Joe, he is working to prove himself to the Mafia quickly escalating up the family ladder with crimes of larger reward, status and consequences… the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as untouchable as it seems.

Mafia II is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. For more information on Mafia II, please visit www.mafia2game.com (http://www.mafia2game.com/). For information on how to pre-order the game, please go to: www.mafia2game.com/preorder (http://www.mafia2game.com/preorder).

If you have a PC buy the PC version. 360 has an little edge followed by PS3.



If your planning on buying the console version, Only things that should matter are:



1. What controller do you like better?

2. Do you like Trophies or Achievements?

3. Do you want the exclusive PS3 DLC?



I think I'll grab the 360 version over PS3 &amp; PC. I want to play this on my TV instead of a PC monitor.

Not to call you out, but you have any pics or quotes that address the foliage issue? It's usually cut out due to bandwidth limitation and that's not just something you can fix so easily. The fact that other effects are missing indicates further that they are hitting a snag with bandwidth.



And demos could be months old depending on when they plan for it.

Are you sure those screens aren't from the PC build, since it's been reported that the DLC has been seen running on PC?

Looks like PS3 Owners got Screwed. PC -&gt; 360 -&gt; PS3. Shame I was going to grab the PS3 version. Still plenty of people picking up the PS3 version, even after this comment was made.


<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">When designing Mafia II, we optimized for each of the three different systems the game would run on to make sure the core experience was the best it could be. Because of this, there are some differences from one platform to the next. In terms of the PS3 version, I wanted to clarify a couple points you have been asking about: There will not be highly detailed grass or large pools of blood, the cloth movement is less noticeable than, for example, the PC version, and the visual fidelity in the demo is generally representative of what you’ll see in the full game.



Our aim is to make a cohesive and immersive experience and optimize the game for each platform so that it could run its best. And while there are some differences between each version, I’m sure you’ll find that the core gameplay and the heart of Mafia II remains no matter whether you play on PS3, 360, or PC.



Thanks for your patience while I checked with the dev team on the specific issues you were asking about, and I hope you see you in Empire Bay next week.</div>

Re: The Official Mafia II Thread



I envy people like you who can comfortably play shooters with the DS3, it always felt awkward to me. Oddly, I thought Killzone 2 controlled great on the DS3 and that's the shooter people complained about regarding controls.



I'm curious as to why things like cloth movement is scaled down for the PS3. Pools of blood I can understand, it's probably a fillrate issue, but the cloth simulation more than likely runs on physx which is an nvidia firmware and was highly optimized for the Cell.



Regardless, I wouldn't describe it as PS3 owners getting screwed, IIRC the game was developed across all 3 platforms simultaneously and not just straight ported from say the PC. The PS3 has been out long enough and has a large enough install base that the notion of a lazy port or developers not optimizing enough doesn't hold water anymore. While very powerful in many ways, the system is severely bottlenecked in others and developers can only work around these bottlenecks so much. The fiasco surrounding Bayonetta for example is another instance where the developer got a bad rap for something that was beyond their control. We can look at any cross platform game now a days and pretty much see where the weaknesses of each console effects any cut backs the games may have.



Anyways, here is another comparison vid from Eurogamer:

Re: The Official Mafia II Thread



Been hearing Demo is from 2009 or early 2010. Don't judge the demo as a final Project. For those thinking it's the final Product or Demo is from E3 2010.



I remember assassin's Creed II, It was stated AC2 would run poorly on PS3. However I pick the game up it ran beautiful on the PS3. However 360 version did have some issues, Not everyone ran into the problem. Graphically 360 may had a small inch over the PS3 version. Other than that both versions were on par. Prime example of a great PS3 &amp; 360 version of a game released by a a 3rd party developer.



Not sure how many people worked on PS3 version. No excuse to make the PS3 inferior to the 360 version(Especially after all the delays &amp; like 6 years in development). They should be on par, 2k wonders why PS3 sales are not extremely high on selected games, This is one reason. Give PS3 bad port &amp; you get bad sales.





If your having issues with the DS3 &amp; want to use a 360 controller on the PS3. You can either use a switch to convert the current 360 controller to work on the PS3(not 100% sure if wireless controllers work or not).



or buy one of these. I suggest buying the Elite PS3 Wireless Controller. Since it has more functionality than the Shadow Controller(Photo 1).

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Been hearing Demo is from 2009 or early 2010. Don't judge the demo as a final Project. For those thinking it's the final Product or Demo is from E3 2010.



I remember assassin's Creed II, It was stated AC2 would run poorly on PS3. However I pick the game up it ran beautiful on the PS3. However 360 version did have some issues, Not everyone ran into the problem. Graphically 360 may had a small inch over the PS3 version. Other than that both versions were on par. Prime example of a great PS3 &amp; 360 version of a game released by a a 3rd party developer.



Not sure how many people worked on PS3 version. No excuse to make the PS3 inferior to the 360 version(Especially after all the delays &amp; like 6 years in development). They should be on par, 2k wonders why PS3 sales are not extremely high on selected games, This is one reason. Give PS3 bad port &amp; you get bad sales.</div>
</div>


Did you just say that the demo is old when earlier you posted a quote from the devs stating the demos are a good representation of the final product?? :confused:



You can't compare AC2 to Mafia 2, you can't really compare any two games of any kind, exclusive or multi-platform. Seeing as how you didn't read or understand my last post, there are very good reasons as to why the ps3 version is inferior to the 360 version. The foliage in the game uses A2C (alpha to coverage) technique, which takes up a deal of bandwidth. The ps3 is severely bandwidth limited, so how would any amount of development or time open up more bandwidth on the ps3?? There's a reason why PS3 games generally use lower resolution buffers and such or how there are many games out that have foliage cut down on the PS3 compared to the 360 (Flashpoint and RDR being two that I can think of off the top of my head). If it makes you feel any better, the PC and 360 version lacks PCF on the shadows making them look slightly messier than the PS3 version.



I love how 5 years in and people still are drinking Sony's kool aid over how the ps3 is this mystical system with no weakness (and apparently unlimited power) :lol

You can't compare AC2 to Mafia 2, you can't really compare any two games of any kind, exclusive or multi-platform. Seeing as how you didn't read or understand my last post, there are very good reasons as to why the ps3 version is inferior to the 360 version. The foliage in the game uses A2C (alpha to coverage) technique, which takes up a deal of bandwidth. The ps3 is severely bandwidth limited, so how would any amount of development or time open up more bandwidth on the ps3??

If you're referring to the quote you posted on the last page, I wouldn't really call that an explanation. However if you're talking about another instance where the devs addressed the ps3 version, I've love to read what they had to say.

Re: The Official Mafia II Thread



It's more of a Dev saying something &amp; the PR team putting their spin on it.



IGN Review was a pretty bad. Poorly put together. I think everyone is expecting GTA in 1930 with Mafia theme.



Mafia 2 is not an open-world/sandbox game. If you played the first one you know what to expect. Mafia I Story does come in play in one of the missions. All I saying without spoiling the entire Mission.

Re: The Official Mafia II Thread



Finally finished the game(Normal), I doubt I will try to beat it on Hard. Last level was great. Didn't like some of the levels due to bad level design or not enough/right cover for the selected area(mainly Chapter 14).



If you get nailed with selected guns it will drop you instantly. They should give you a little more health. You can die pretty quickly if your exposed for a brief time.

<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Mafia 3 is in development for the next Xbox and PlayStation 4, according to our Czech Republic cousins at Eurogamer.cz (http://www.eurogamer.cz/articles/2012-08-06-mafia-3-bude-a-pro-priti-konzole-ale-ne-na-start).

Eurogamer.cz's story (translated into English for Eurogamer by Jan Doskocil, the author of the report), reveals that the gangster sequel had been intended as a next-gen launch title, but this is now unlikely as the developer, 2K Czech, is still in the process of staffing up after the loss of some 40 staff (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-09-01-lay-offs-at-2ks-mafia-2-studio) last year.

11 positions are available at 2K Czech, including one for a systems designer (http://www.2kgames.com/#/jobs/2k-czech/systems-designer). These job listings say the developer is working on its "next AAA title".

2k Czech declined to comment when contacted by Eurogamer.cz.

In March 2K Czech was rumoured to be helping Rockstar with the development of Grand Theft Auto 5, working on cutscenes and general gameplay. According to VG247 (http://www.vg247.com/2012/03/06/rumour-2k-czech-working-on-grand-theft-auto-v-mafia-iii/), the two studios were trading tech secrets in an attempt to turn Mafia into a monster franchise.

Both Microsoft and Sony are yet to announce their next generation plans, but consoles from both companies are reportedly set for launch late next year.</div>

I really like the series, Head onto Xbox 360 and Download the Mafia 2 demo. It gives you a small sample of what previous game was like.

Seriously WTF did they do to Mafia? This is nothing like previous two games. This is some kind of GTA clone but worse since it's extremely repetitive.

I basically have zero interest in finishing the game.
