Beautiful screens of Katamari Damacy
Xboxyde is on the ball again, this time bringing us some bright and colorful screens of Beautiful Katamari Damacy. Pictured is the roll of over seven thousand kilometers in diameter, taking a chunk out of the Earth that even Galactus would be proud of. Other screens are a little less planetary in scale and still show off the addicting gameplay that PS2 and PSP owners have been enjoying for years. Beautiful Katamari is looking to live up to the legacy, are you ready to start rolling, rawhide?

Visually it doesn't look much better that the PS2 version.

i love katamari. that being said, i'm pretty disappointed with what i've seen so far of beautiful katamari. they could make the graphics A LOT better without disrupting the feel of the game (that's the only excuse i can think of for having such bad graphics). in fact, i think better graphics would gratly enhance the game (imagine if things clung and dangled more realistically from the katamari!).
it would be very difficult to justify paying more than $20 for this, so i hope it's intended as a bargain title - do we know anything about that yet?

20 dollars is way too low. I think 40 is a fair price for this. All games on the 360 are required to be 720p/1080i, so the graphics ARE going to be improved over the old PS2/PSP versions. Sadly though, it seems like the physics aren't going to be upgraded at all, and I've seen nothing to suggest that there will be any more variety in the types of things that can be picked up at all.
My one gripe with Katamari is that it's not very seamless. There are obvious transitions between when you can only pick up small things, and when you can pick up large things. I'd be thrilled to see a Katamari that was not broken up by missions (as far as warping back his home planet after ever mission) and more like...it's hard to explain but, what I want is the prince, starting with a very small Katamari, and then plopped onto Japan. He's then stuck in Japan untill he gets the Katamari big enough to move across the sea and onto China, at which point the entire continents of both Asia and Europe would then be open to him (with land barriers like the alps etc barring his path to keep it within certain limits)
I should mention that I am pretty drunk,and I'll regret rambling on later.
