Naughty Dogs was well aware of the actual release date of Playstation 4 (even before its official announcement at GamesCom 2013). Not only this, Naughty Dog even hide PS4 release date in "The Last of Us".
Out of all the dates they would put that. They did this with U3 as well, but that one regarding The last of us game.
@Mep They get confused with a lot Edit: accidentaly replied to badboy. Apologies
I wonder if 12/1 has something to do with some kind of announcement with their upcoming game on PS4. Maybe VGAs date? Or Some DLC announcement for TLG?
I meant TLoU
You guys are all high if you think it is anything other than coincidence
It reads 11/15 12/1... if you add the 12/1 you get 13, 11/15/13.... ND has been hinting us the whole time lol.
12 + 1 = 13 That's a good one, but it could also mean they reveal their next games on 12/1 (December first, which should be around VGA time) Last year it was held December 7 (Friday), December 1, 2013 (Sunday). Seems plausible, or at least an announcement trailer.
Yeah I dont think 12/1 means to add them. 11/15 is enough; we know what year it's releasing. 12/1 is probably something else.
11/15/13 is PS4 release date so they hid 2 things in one?:P
12/1 is the announcement of UC4.
There's not 15th months in a year! U.K trolling ;)
@TheLyonKing That's not trolling it's just a fact, it's common sense to go day month year. The same as seconds minutes hours. It's basic maths, start with the smaller and work up to th larger. Somehow America got confused along the way.
@abizzel1 that would be a double wammy if they will show something on that date
@mep69 Your digital clock/watch must look strange if it is in seconds:minutes:hours format...
I like the more relevant info first. When I look at a date for whatever (say a concert) I want to know the month more than the day. Never will you look at the day/month format and be able to disregard something, but if its in month/day setup you can quickly see if something has already happened in the past or is too far out for some reason. And when I say quickly its about half a second, haha.
It probably meant that the release window was planned for 11/15 through 12/1. I am not sure the exact date was set when ND was still making TLOU. Just my two cents.
@hkgamer Lol you use a Digital watch ? Not me, thanks to technology I have a phone. How ever if I was to wear a watch, it would be a trusty mechanical watch. Pfft digital watches. Also for further reference, the seconds are what make the minutes. People don't need to mention them when telling someone the time, which I might add is completely irrelevant to you being butthurt over realising you've been doing it wrong all this "time".
" ND has been hinting us the whole time lol." no, they weren't. stupid people are overreaching in their assumptions. remember when people thought that the ad for PSASBR was a PS4 announcement?
If this is truly the case, it just continues to confirm how much Sony has had everything mapped out for a while....and their continued positive strides are not by accident.
Your right they been working on the PS4 for 3-4 Years.
How dare they hide this information from us!, im not going to buy another naughty dog game again!
Haha you got a disagree ... Someones joke detector is broken
It's the Half-Life 3 release date! Naughty Dog is so sly!
Maybe 30% off was the Vita price drop or Vita memory price cut. Don't work out to exactly 30% though, but its in that general area.
ps4 rounded to 30% off ps3 launch price
It would have been amusing if the difference in price between the Xbone and PS4 worked out to be 30%, but you can't have everything I guess. If only they'd made the sign read 25%.
I like when company's do things like this but for me if they really collaborated to put the date in the game sony at E3 should of came out and said the relese date is out there already in a premier game see if u guys can find it that would of been really cool!
I know it would have been a huge hunt! I think that would be fun
Orrrr, now get this, they just put in a random date and it just so happened to be the PS4 release date. Crazy idea, I know...
It very well could have been dumb luck but ND are known for leaving clues of future products in their games.
ND you crafty bastards :D
love these guys... ND .... seriously you guys are best at everything..........
Those cheeky bastards haha
You sly dogs you! You got us good. Lol I knew they knew the date in some way though, haha.
I'll be damned.
Or it was pure blink luck?
Yup, a lot of the dates left standing in the last of us are from the end of the year, the outbreak happened around october/november, it makes sense considering how much detail they put in to every corner of that game. Even before e3 this year, people were saying a date taht was found in a screenshot released of the game was the ps4 release date :P Definitely coincidence, I'd say the only info any dev had of the release date of the console was that it would definitely be Q4 2013, but good lucking convincing the converted otherwise, it's like talking to a contrails conspiracy loon :P Or the number 23.
You think Naughty Dog, Sony's flagship company, wouldn't get told the release date?
"I'd say the only info any dev had of the release date of the console was that it would definitely be Q4 2013, but good lucking convincing the converted otherwise" It's certainly a confidence, but I would say they would be given more information. It's extremely difficult when you have developers working towards a Q4 release and suddenly they find out at Gamescom that they absolutely must have the game done by 11/15 to meet launch. What more likely happened is that Sony told them they were shooting for November and companies have been working towards a November release date. Now they might or might not have known the gate come the release of The Last of Us, but it's impossible to say when that sign was made. We could be talking 6 months before it got pressed, etc.
@admiralvic or this date could have been added in a patch on the sly, either way sony and naughty dog are so bad ass
I agree, it was a random date, due to the timeframe of the games story. Man, people on this site have some kind of incurable disease, and it's called fanboy syndrome. I mean, seriously? Wow! There's a date in the game that happens to be the ps4 release month, and day!!! That's soooo exciting!!! .... Not. Who cares? THAT'S what you guys are excited about? Lol.... Get a grip! You make yourselves look dumb.
Damn i saw naughty dog and got hyped but then it was this but on a bright note as soon as they announce their next game im going to buy the ps4 for sure
Gotta love ND.
Everyone was hoping for the earlier date.:P Book sale my ass..
People actually believe this? The Last of Us is a new IP. The game was probably in development in 2009 or 2010. C'mon guys. They obviously knew the release date waaaaaay before the PS4 ever crossed their mind. /s
The game did get delayed earlier this year, so it's entirely possible ND just edited this in.
Adding something as simple as a sign doesn't take years of development. Heck, they could have even done this 2 weeks before the game went gold.
2 weeks before the game goes gold, they would have been on lock down. I don't think so. Now, they did do a patch to correct some textures. I'd go with that if you really want to believe this theory. (Personally, I don't. It's just the middle of november, not some weird date that it would be tough to justify picking at random.)
Naughty Naughty Dogs!!!! That's just crazy! These Guys have been working on the PS4 since U3 shipped it make sense. Lol, these guys are just awesome, looking at the parallels now... Book sale... Right!
I know, because a book sale is just so, I don't know, unbelievable! Right? It couldn't just be a random part to a game, meant to make a believable world, it must have been there strictly as a way to tell people when the ps4 was coming! Yeah.... That's it..... Yup. ..... Sigh.... Fanboys these days.....
dude go have a seat somewhere.
HAHAHA. After TLOU reveal, everybody is looking for predictive "easter eggs" in their games.
yup, remember the quarantine zone sign in one of the screenshots released earlier this year? People were convinced it was ps4 release date. The rational people of course just took it as a sign of time and setting for when the outbreak occured and nothing else. Nearly everywhere in the game that you see dates and calenders, they're all Q4 months, its just to add to the immersion guys, nothing else.
They teased the release date. They also teased some cardboard games of Jak and Daxter and Uncharted. Does that mean that they're working on Uncharted 4 or that they're taking a second jab at Jak 4? I hope so. These guys truly are naughty. :D
The board games do exist. http://www.nohighscores.com...
Does that mean ND is also secretly creating a futuristic sci-fi game called "Savage Starlight"? O.O?
I think so. That seems like it could be a new and an original IP.
I wanna see "hair Trigger"! hahhaha!
I would buy that so stupidly fast.
I'll nut if it is true.
That sounds cool. I think I'll nut too.
Oh God i hope so. I want a Sci-Fi IP from them. It will be massive. I need a new Sci-Fi IP. KZ is great and all but it's still very grounded. I want a Sci-FI like Mass effect with different alien worlds and races. Actually i want a Sci-Fi Fantasy game from them.
this is probably not in purpose but, ps3 at release is 600$ and 30% of will make it almost 400$ which is the price for the ps4 :)
This is a Conspiracy i tell yah!
oh you! :')
You would think this is a coincidence.....but givin ND's past..........
Whether intentional or not, this is pretty cool!
