Can't wait to see what kind of stuff they can pull off with the PS4.
Dylila  +   1100d ago
so this game would be impossible on a wii u and xbox. im glad the ps3 was made more future proof than xbox and wii u.

i can't wait for this game. i cant wait for ps4 either.

@ grieversoul
im not bashing anything but stating what is apparent. i understand everything someone says on n4g is scrutinized but when i see something as true i like to say it truthfully. no game on any console is up to the last of us in regards to game tech. zombie u was just released and it will cost the amount it is to buy the last of us.

my point is i wont hold my tongue to be scene as console neutral when in fact there is one console this generation that is above all others. people can compare game tech ,quality in quantity and if ps3 isnt number one then that person is an idiot. people will have a few niche preference but console successes done lie on just one or two quality games.

ps4 is the number one choice for non biased gamers next gen who prefers quality and diverse titles in abundance with cutting edge tech.this is based off ps1,ps2,ps3 support so id rationally assume ps4 will get the same amazing support.

No need to bash the competition.
They have eyes too and know that already! :)

TLOU is everything I like in a game, good narrative, good looking, action, stealth, intense, survival horror, apocalyptic, upgrade items, etc...

So much elements that if well executed, this might be a game that comes once in a lifetime. I have faith in ND.

"people can compare game tech ,quality in quantity and if ps3 isnt number one then that person is an idiot."
Dylila  +   1100d ago
console successes and worth arent dependent on a few titles but the breadth of quality titles for a wide range of people.

nintendo is known for mario, zelda,metroid , maro kart. xbox is known for forza, halo, gears. playstation is known for a lot more titles than the rest. most wii u fans are waiting for the old franchizes like mario and the 4 other nintendo franchizes. most xbox gamers are waiting for gears, halo, forza on xbox 720. for ps4 a lot of playstation gamers are looking towards sequels but mostly the new franchizes like other ps consoles.

you need to work on reading,comprehension and context.

I love the way this game looks i cant wait to get it. and i know i wont be disappointed . . .its sony. just like @dylila said Ps3 was made way more future proof than. other consoles out today. I love the way naughty dog managed to creat this game with a totally different feel from uncharted, and has the potential to surpass uncharted, if it didnt already do so. .cant wait for ps4.

What a great finish to this gen... The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls and God of War: Ascension.

The finale of this great console couldn't be any better.

Paves the way for an awesome PS4 launch aswell.

Uncharted 3 looks good but Halo 4 is still graphics king for consoles

"ps4 is the number one choice"

Why does there have to be a choice, personally I will be getting both playstation and xbox consoles (already have the WiiU and loving it) as I don't want to miss out on anything.

It could be any brand for me as long as they are the best in what they do.

Whether cheap or expensive as long as there is a balance of price and performance even if its not perfect it would be my practical choice.

Unlike many brand loyalist, I just want "the best" bang for my hard earned buck for my gaming needs that is all.

Go for the best. This is the principle of design Ken Kutaragi applied when designing the PS3 and it like a light house that has guided my way as a very satisfied gamer.

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1100d ago
I'm not disagreeing with you Perjoss, but even through it may be great to game on all platforms, for many of us it's just not necessary, viable or advisable.

In my case for instance, I don't get the time to play more than one or two campaings per month andusually stick a good time to the same game online, so it's not like I really need to invest in another console to find something worth playing, in fact I can't even finish my backlog. And let's be realistic, even through I'm missing some games, mostly everything now a days is multiplatfom (and even with performance differences, the experience remains all around the same), buying another console for 2 or 3 games means one of my consoles would be, eventually, collecting dust most of the time... So it wouldn't be very smart of me to invest in yet another console, with even more accesories and games, even through I got the money, I'll probably won't get the time to enjoy everything.

So yes, sometimes you're better of choosing one... Doesn't mean I wouldn't enjoy having 'em all though.

Steelmanner  +   1100d ago
Sure, "Non-Biased," you realize your saying this while bashing all other consoles and their features. In addition, the ps3 has slightly more processing power than the xbox360, and by no means does it have better graphics, have you seen halo 4? Also, Microsoft hasn't even revealed the power of the Xbox 720 and the WiiU is just starting to show off its amazing potential. Oh by the way this is all "Non-bias" considering i own an Xbox and Wii.

Now, what I was here to say: the game looks great, can't wait to get it.

ND knows we are ready for UC4 on PS4 and TLOU2 on PS4 too.
LocutusEstBorg  +   1099d ago
I hate bullshit statements like this. The CPU or GPU was alrady maxed out when the very first game ran below 60fps. It ran out of power. Reducing image quality and resolution to put more stuff on the screen doesn't magically produce more power.

The PS3 and 360 were maxed out on launch day with sub standard framerates.

So you like calling people idiots, yet you write like an idiot. While reading your non sense I thought maybe English wasn't your main language. Then you go and tell someone to work on their reading comprehension and context? Lmaooo

You are the worst type of fan boy. Go judge wii u when it only has 3 months in the market, and how is The last of Us since you obviously played the entire game to make such retarded accusations.
AKS  +   1099d ago

Dropping below 60 frames does not necessarily mean you've managed to maximize the utilization of all resources of a console. You could hit a bottleneck in RAM but yet be at 50% or less with the CPU or GPU. Over time, programmers find ways to use all the resources while developing strategies to code games to run more efficiently and use less power per task or effect.

kryteris  +   1099d ago
if you think the ps3 is more powerful or suited for this game, then you are simply completely retarded. Your ignorance had made you this way. You are doomed.

The ps3 only has a slight edge over the xbox, like maybe 20% if the devs really know their $!@#! The ps3 is probably, at best 6x performance behind the Wii U. Hardware tells all.
classic200  +   1100d ago
If the PS3 and wiiu is so similar so far in power.

When the PS4 comes I bet nintendo is going to need to choke the wiiu to death to keep up with third party support.

linkofrs  +   1100d ago
That is true if they are that similar but, I honestly don't trust any of the articles saying the wii u is roughly the same as any of this generation's consoles. I remember when the ps3 was released and no one knew how to do anything with it. I'd imagine the wii u is in a similar situation.
hesido  +   1100d ago
I've said it and will say again, the fact that Wii U is close to current gen is good both for the current gen and the next gen. Wii U won't be able to hamper next gen development just like Wii could not hurt PS3 and Xbox360 development because there was a big gap between the consoles. If it was halfway between, there was this danger that it could be the deciding factor in game design in multiplatform games. Now WiiU will be treated like a PS3 or Xbox360 for multiplats.
angelsx  +   1100d ago
I wana see graphics like this in next ps4.
PLASTICA-MAN  +   1100d ago
You are already seeing next-gen graphics on PS3:

Don't expect next-gen multiplatform games to look as good as latest PS3 first party games, let alone PS4 first party games.
Eldyraen  +   1100d ago
The animation part would be easy--games can already do it (not to that degree but motion capture isn't new). However textures and polygon count not going to happen unless its relegated to cutscenes. No way next gen gameplay will look like that though and have power to do anything complex at the same time. Unless its cgi cutscenes not likely anyways as would be too expensive for most titles. PC hasn't reached that level yet (granted most console games get more funding other than MMOs).

I'm sure at some point next gen though some game will have cutscenes that aren't too far off (most likely a huge Sony/MS exclusive--most likely a Halo pre rendered cutscene as MS goes all out and isn't afraid of using them or shelling out that kind of cash for marketing alone). Gameplay though, not a chance ;)

Only ones that could even hope for it are basically point and click or ate heavy games where "gameplay" is secondary (heavy rain for example--very scripted and tightly controlled). Even then those games don't always look as good as the cutscenes.

Basically, don't hold your breathe. Its still a gen or two away at the soonest and even then tech has a ways to go till could render multiple characters at that level (even it was just a head) on top of a realistic environment that wasn't completely lifeless.

Cool video though and shows how far tech has come. Basically hardware and finances are holding everything back (and time... Just think how long it would take for a full length game to release at that level of detail).

@Plasticaman: Not knocking the PS as I love it but as I said above, the only way a game can hope to consistently look like that is to basically be an interactive story like Heavy Rain.

Interactivity will probably be at a minimum (HR and Walking Dead for example as both were pretty much the same but with different style and production values). Most of the game you just walked around and could only interact with a few objects that lead to either in engine QTE or prerendered cutscenes.

Granted I loved HR and expect much the same with Beyond but don't expect that level of graphics in games with significantly more intense gameplay.

Want a teaser for February 20th? Here's the World's first screenshot of Gran Turismo 6:

The PS3 will have one more major squeeze from Naughty Dog Team B after Uncharted 3. A good 1-2 years after they launch the Last of US along with The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, etc.

Sony is doing great! After Ni No kuni, God Of War & now TLOU sony is the definitive console gaming company for sure.

I think because of the bad launch and the mistakes sony has made will make ps4 even better. Ps4 will be the best next to ps2 mark my words...

If you actually read the article you know why they said those things. You can use 100% of a system and it'll look like garbage if its coded horribly. He stated that with Uncharted 2 they were using 100% but it wasn't as efficient as they liked. With Uncharted 3 they got more effency out of the system.

bayport  +   1100d ago
I always feel like titles like the one this article has send the wrong message.

I feel like maxing out a consoles power isn't that big of a deal, developers do it right away to see how much they have to work with. It's called benchmarking.

I always felt that the true genius in making good looking video games is efficiency and focusing on the aesthetics that people really notice. Not just "squeezing power" out of a CPU and GPU.

The amount of times I've heard this statement about game X squeezing everything out of the PS3. Though I must say Naughty Dog is doing an incredible job and the game does look superior opposed to other exclusives.
Irishguy95  +   1100d ago
ND themselves said it for Uncharted 2 and 3.

There is NO reason whatever, not to squeeze the power out of the PS3 in those games. Truth is, they used all it's power for each game, they never held back, however, they have learned to use system better after UC2,3 and now LoU

"when the graphically superior sequel comes out" I honestly believe this will be one of few last good games for the PS3. it'll take another couple years to create a graphically impressive sequel and we all know the next gen consoles are bound to be revealed by then.

The only time I think it gets corny is with 3rd party games..."cough cough cough Crysis cough"
BanBrother  +   1100d ago
That's what everyone was thinking when they saw the game-play videos. Plus, it is right before the PS4 comes out (most likely). I think it will look as good as some 3rd party games early next-gen. I know people always say don't hype up a game because it might fail, but this is Naughty Dog. Even before the amazing Uncharted games they were rocking the PS1 with Crash and PS2 with Jak.

Still waiting on UnKarted though. One can dream right?

"For us, it's nice to really have mastered the PS3 at this point and be able to push things where we haven't been able to push before," he said, noting the game's use of real-time radiosity on the flashlight. That is, when the flashlight hits a surface, the light bounces around the environment. So if you shine it at an orange wall, it will bounce orange light around the environment."

PopRocks359  +   1100d ago
That doesn't surprise me at all. The Last of Us looks pretty intensive as far as PS3 games go. I haven't seen too much of it since the E3 2012 demo, but I remember it being pretty sweet. One of the most impressive aspects I remember was the enemies strategically coming out of cover if they heard your gun was out of ammo. Not to mention the girl (I think her name is Ellie?) was pretty badass when helping you fight off the enemies.

Naughty Dog is seemingly putting together a pretty sick and animated world. It's nothing short of exciting. I think anyone with a PS3 should be excited for this one.
OmniSlashPT  +   1100d ago
ND released another gameplay trailer today featuring the clickers (aka zombies) and there was the Gamescom/PAX gameplay demo (which was the same as the E3 one but played in a completely different way).

TLOU is deserving all the hype it's getting, and to be honest, I only expect to be even better.
lovegames718  +   1100d ago
No doubt after the extended video gameplay that either GOW Asc or the LOU will be the new graphical benchmarks in consoles.

Crysis was completely linear, just the route wasn't.

Farcry 3 was more openworld then crysis ever was.

As for Sony's impressive list of games, Infamous 2 still looks amazing for a large open game, considering the ram constraints.

Assassins creed is another good looking game for console and open.

If Monolith Soft has a tech demo for an open world game that has graphics better than a linear game that 'squeezes every last drop of power' from the PS3 then all this article does is prove the haters wrong about Wii U and yes I know I'm bringing up another console on an article about the PS3 but it's just a fact that needed stating, from this moment on the doom articles have no legitimacy.

Sony's timing is bad. Imagine games like this releasing with PS4? Instead we get these when the PS3 is on its way out. I hope Sony doesn't pull a Nintendo and just release the PS4 console in the Fall so they get holiday sales.

what people don't realize is that they have been running at 100 % ever since uncharted 2, but what makes console gaming way better then pc is they understand there product and learn how to make the software more efficient then what developer can do on the pc.

pc is all about brute power because ever year they bring out some new super graphics card, witch is all great but they never get the efficiency out of the cards, why because they rely one the raw power of the new cards and cpus.

console developers have years of the same system and for them to make improvements they have to run more efficient coding, lighting, engines, everything is more efficient on consoles leading to great jumps in each new ip.

pc are great i have a nice rig myself but yet ever time sony comes out with its latest and greatest game it gets me thinking why i spent all the money one my pc.
