First Alien: Isolation Screenshots on PS3

Alien: Isolation is less than two weeks away, consequently early copies of the game have started to slowly make their way to the surface including what appears to be a Russian version of the game on PS3.  Alien: Isolation has yet to be officially shown on PS3 or X360, making these fan screenshots the first images of the game in any last gen consoles. Be sure to check them below:

    PC Master Race: no upgrades needed, 2 year old rig runs it smooth in all likeliness at glorious 1200P native.

    PS3 is looking fine for some features but this needs to be played at full res, full sounds and no lights.

    Speaking of that, I just reminded myself today how much I hate the Predator mission series in AvP. Cannot stand it. Playing it on hard this time too, so that's gonna be fun. First marine mission still pretty solid.

    Some of the marine missions weren't bad. Letdown game, but it had some moments.

    Yeah, decent game, but perhaps lazy. I mean it completely trashes ACM in retrospect, but it was released alongside the likes of Mass Effect 2 and Red Dead Redemption. I haven't played it for a while, and coming back to it, other than the Predator missions, has actually been pretty fun today.

    Just finished the marine's second mission. Pretty tense actually. The thing I like is that the game doesn't throw unlimited, non-stop hoards at you. It's balanced by the fact that they're way harder to kill in this game than in AvP '99, where there were so many, but a burst from a pulse rifle had a really high chance of killing them outright. Plus, back then the AI had them pretty much just running straight for you. I've always been impressed by the Alien AI in the 2010 game. They hide in the shadows and they don't bunch up if they're all out in the open together. Makes it pretty tough. It took me several tries to get past the bridge section at the early part of the level. Getting bum rushed and having to resort to the pistol for the last three or four was really tough.

    The sequence going through the hive with Major Van Zandt or whatever his name is. The flamethrower was my best friend. It was a really quiet, tense playthrough and I was doing it on a big TV in a totally dark room. Really tense. Definitely getting fired up to do it with Isolation.

    Just drove over to a local place and got it for $8 used. Disc looks really good. Why the hell would a new copy be anywhere near $70? Did it have a limited run like Predator: Concrete Jungle?

    Now I got my quick fix till next Tuesday.

    I still haven't finished Stasis Interrupted for A:CM.  That will be my "quick fix" until Tuesday. 

    Even though they haven't all been great, I feel really good that we've had a steady flow of Alien-based games over the last couple of years.  I recall a time (more than a few years ago) when nothing was coming out at all.  This has been refreshing.

    I had the season pass for ACM on 360. I hated the game so much I didn't even bother downloading anything after the first DLC release.

    But who knows, the game is so cheap now I might get it again and play it through for the trophies.

    I was really just skimming certain parts to see if it held up visually, which I strongly thing it does. Definitely don't want to give the game away for myself.

    As excited for this game as I am, I was also excited for A:CM, AvP '10, both AvP movies, Predators, Prometheus, etc. I'll be safely assuming the game is going to get rated somewhere around a 6 or 7 by IGN and the likes of other press sources.

    The last time I wasn't let down by an Aliens related game was Infestation. AvP '10 was decent at BEST, at worst it was really underwhelming. I feel like buying it again though just because I have a PS3 and no longer an Xbox, which I had it on before.

    EDIT:

    Or maybe not: It's over $70 for PS3 on Amazon.

    It's only $10 at GameStop if you have one close

    A 7 is a victory by ACM standards. If it gets an 8-9, forget it. Sales will be off the charts.

    No prob, just make sure to set Steam to "offline mode" before you take your PC back to your flat.

    Because ironically enough, you need to be online in order to switch it to offline mode. Fortunately, thereafter it will automatically stay in offline mode even if you switch off or reboot your PC.

    Nope, you just need to activate the game once and then you can use Steam's offline mode indefinitely.

    If you want to update the game with the latest patch or if you want to re-install the game then you'll of course need to go online again.

    Great, looks like I'll be buying the PC version then (there's a nifty looking steel book on Amazon).

    Thanks for the information, you've been most helpful.

    I'm torn as to whether I should buy this game for PS3 or PC.  I want to get it for PC ideally (better graphics) but if I do, then I'm concerned about how I would be able to buy the DLC.  Do you guys think that I would need to install Steam to do so?  Because If so, then PS3 it is!

    You're going to need Steam in order to activate the game on PC even if you buy the physical version. The Nostromo DLC will most likely be included on the game disc (as was the case with ACM's pre-order DLC incentives). The rest of the forthcoming DLC will probably have to be downloaded from Steam.

    The PC version will no doubt be the superior version (as was the case with ACM) so if your PC has the horsepower then definitely go for that version. Steam ain't that bad.

    Thank you kindly for the speedy response.  If I buy the PC version and use Steam to activate it, do I need an Internet connection to keep playing?  I ask because I don't have an Internet connection at my flat.  I could take my PC to my parents place to activate the game online after an initial install but I need to know whether I'm required to be online every time I boot the game up?

    Sorry for the (probably quite) stupid questions but I'm not very knowledgeable about newer technology.

    Damn it, those kids are back again my front lawn AGAIN!

    I don't recall a hardcore gamer ever saying that graphics, polygon counts, etc. are the first things that make a game great.


    I'm getting mine for the 360 and hoping that the overall experience is something that produces challenge, tension, responsive controls, and an immersive storyline to boot. 

    Every system that Alien Isolation is being released for has that capability to deliver those things.

    But thats its ORIGINAL resolution. These screenshots are what you will see stretched on your big ass TV.. Thats unacceptable in 2014 imo. Even most of the phones these days are running on 1080p.
