Release date please

im hoping to see uncharted 4 trailer, or killzone 4 trailer. it would even be awesome to see a resistance 4 trailer that would launch on ps4.

i brush my teeth with colgate total
Abash  +   971d ago
Uncharted 4 and Killzone 4 should be saved for the PlayStation 4, until the new PlayStation is announced I dont want to see them.

Sucker Punch's new PS3 game NEEDS to be announced already though, I want it to be at the Spike's VGAs!
GraveLord  +   971d ago
I could see a Killzone 4 trailer. The other stuff is too early. I think they're saving Uncharted 4 for the PS4. I think the Resistance IP is done, at least until Sony finds a dev to take over for Insomniac.

Why not show the rumoured PS3 Syphon Filter?

now that would be great
NukaCola  +   970d ago
Some monster gameplay please.

Got to see some exploration, the relationships between Joe and Elle, some new characters, thugs, and the insane awesome variety of ways to solve those crazy situations...now I can't wait to see gameplay under fear and stress. Man I can't wait for this amazing looking game.

I'm fine with a January release, we need to space out all these games.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Release date

October 13, 2009
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Release date

November 1, 2011
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Release date

~ Prediction ~
The Last Of Us release date:
Tuesday 11/12/13

Holiday sales, 2 year release cycle, a Tuesday (when games are normally released), very marketable 11-12-13 release date.

ND beefed up after Uncharted 2's success and split into two teams.

Uncharted 3 and The Last of Us started production at roughly the same time, meaning The Last of Us has already been in the works for 3+ years.

Also with nextgen likely hitting end of next year i'd say releasing at the same time would not go well unless it changes to a PS4 release title.

That said their had been rumours months ago of a Q1 2013 release.

Good points.

Earlier the better (as long as the quality doesn't suffer), but God of War: Ascension releases in Q1 2013. They shouldn't put those too close to each other non-holiday season.

There's also a prequel comic called The Last Of Us: American Dreams releasing in "Spring 2013", which is Q2.

Just saw a Black Ops 2 commercial for 11-13-12 btw.

PS3 2013 Announced Exclusives

January 22nd - Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
February 5th - Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
March 12th - God of War: Ascension

So maybe April for The Last of Us? Who knows, I don't really care. I just want it to be a great game. Don't care if it's January or December.
BitbyDeath  +   970d ago
Beyond : Two Souls is set for February as well.

miyamoto  +   971d ago
Yep. This is very good news.

I hope Sony & ND take their time to really polish this game to perfection and avoid rushing it like they did Uncharted 3. If Nintendo can't rush Miyamoto so should Sony not rush Naughty Dog. They only have one shot at TLOU so they better not screw it.
wastedcells  +   970d ago
Ya better be a release date, I don't care to see anymore trailers... Just gimme the game!
Jinkies  +   971d ago
I'd rather they show something new off, maybe another IP they've been working on, I wonder what the Uncharted team has been up to, unless they are working on Uncharted 4.
Bathyj  +   971d ago
Tad optimistic dont you think? They just announced a new IP with TloU, its a bit much to expect another one so late in the gen.

If the Uncharted 3 team are working on a new IP or even UC4 it will likely be on PS4.
nukeitall  +   971d ago
Naughty Dog has been working on The Last of US? Do you want something more?
Jinkies  +   971d ago
One team of ND have been working on The Last of Us...the other team, who knows
nukeitall  +   970d ago
@Jinkies:

Uncharted for next gen wouldn't surprise me.
Shawtymann  +   970d ago
i thought i remember ND saying after U3 was finished the other half of the team started to help with TLoU. idk maybe i'm imagining things
StrongMan  +   971d ago
I now have a reason to watch the VGAs.

I'm confused...wasn't the world premiere back when the game was announced?
Nimblest-Assassin  +   971d ago
World premiere doesn't mean the first time a game is announced... but rather the first time anyone will see this information
ShinraE5  +   971d ago
Oh ok. I thought they had shown a trailer or what not before.

Thanks for clearing that up !
PinkFunk  +   971d ago
I predict we'll see some gameplay footage with them mushroom headed zombie folk. Or a glimpse or whatever.
Convas  +   971d ago
Can't wait to see it. I've been waiting on more TLOU info since E3. Hope to see some great trailers the VGA13 this year.

Alan Wake 2, a gameplay trailer of Lords of Shadow 2, and either Mercenaries 3 or a fullblown Spyro game for PS3.
BigStef71  +   971d ago
To be honest Im more excited for the VGAS than I was for E3. The VGA's have been the ones doing the new big game announcements not E3 the last couple of years. Kojima thinks the same:

A glimpse of online multiplayer
DigitalRaptor  +   971d ago
28 days and counting. Cannot wait, but I hope they don't show too much, since the game is so grounded in narrative and character development.

And like has been said, release date please Naughty Dog!! :)

Yeah, I'm we're all gonna need safety buddies for this reveal. You know....someone to watch it first, then tell us spoilerphobes if it's safe.

Someone be mine pl0x?
Bathyj  +   970d ago
28 days?

Ooo, spooky.
BigStef71  +   971d ago
My wishes have been answered. I've anxiously been waiting for new info on this game. My most anticipated with gta 5 behind it
r21  +   971d ago
Sweet, hope they reveal the release date and show the fungi monsters and their AI.
mafiahajeri  +   971d ago
Obviously Multiplayer. I want to see a Killzone Mrecenaries trailer.
Zechs34  +   971d ago
Without Last Guardian or Versus XIII anywhere in sight, The Last of Us looks to be the best game on PS3 that's been knowingly announced for 2013. Super excited!
solar  +   971d ago
Wasn't there already a World Premier? Game looks great but this does not compute....
Hicken  +   971d ago
Quoted from Nimblest Assassin(2hrs ago):

"World premiere doesn't mean the first time a game is announced... but rather the first time anyone will see this information."
Omnislash  +   971d ago
I just hope theres actual gamers and not anything lame like the past VGA's....
ILive  +   971d ago
We really need more new IPs. I am glad naughty dog and sony are investing time into creating a new IP. According to Naughty Dog, this game isn't going to be accompanied by a sequel. I love Uncharted, God of War, Gears of War, Halo, Final Fantasy, and Resident evil; but i would like to add a quite a few, fresh titles to that list.
first1NFANTRY  +   971d ago
TLOU and Ground Zeros are probably the only two games i'm drooling for right now. the anticipation is killing me
erivera1994  +   970d ago
Last of us was revealed to the World at VGAs 2011, its been a whole year. Please oh please tell us the release date of the game at VGAs 2012, that would be awesome.
th3n00bg4m3r  +   970d ago
So excited
garos82  +   970d ago
This is a definite day one buy.the little I've seen so far is all I needed to see.watching the e3 trailer for the first time was exhilarating to say the least
