Rockstar Shows Naughty Dog Some Developer Love?

What happens when one big developer wants to give a shout out to another big developer without making it known to the public? Rockstar sure seems to know how to pay homage to a prestigious developer! (Dev, Naughty Dog, PS3, Rockstar Games)

There are definitely a lot of similarities! That scene totally reminded me of the Uncharted 3 plane scene.

I think Naughty Dog Would Approve.

the level of detail and the character animation is Uncharted is insane!!
But nice tribute from a top developer to another top developer.
Thehyph  +   869d ago
I'll bet Naughty Dog will throw one back at them next release.

It'll probably be hidden like a mofo though.

I played this mission yesterday. I like the moments of dialogue before the begining of this part. One of his lines could have been like this.

Mayweather plane: unidentified airplane divert now or we will engage!

Trevor: What? But I am the only other plane in the air! That's discrimination against hard working crop dusters!

i respect R* for their masterpiece RDR but now i respect them even more

it great when 2 of the best studios in history show respect for each other like that

When I played that mission on GTA V I was wondering why I had deja vu.

It makes me want to play Uncharted 3 again.

This is awesome but what the hell??? No spoiler alert?? Silly me, I shouldn't have pushed play on that video.
blennerville  +   868d ago
at least this time we had better movement and shooting mechanics - both were very poor in UC3 and it killed the scene for me.
dboyc310  +   869d ago
And to say that the Uncharted series didn't influence games this Gen. Blasphemy to those who don't think it did.
ginsunuva  +   868d ago
Who said that?
miyamoto  +   868d ago
Like ICO and SOTC was the most influential game last gen, there is no doubt Uncharted is the most influential game of this generation. You can see little bits of Uncharted elements and stuff in most games made after it.

The U3 cargo plane level is one of the best puzzle/stages ever made.
Blaze929  +   869d ago
....are you all serious -_-? This is a joke right? An easter egg? And you all are actually juicing this up? WOW...quite the parallels we're drawing here lmao.

I guess Ubisoft is paying homage to Rockstar and GTA when Ayden breaks into a car and speeds away in the city of Chicago in Watch_Dogs. Respect.

And aaaaall the WW2 shooters back in the day were just paying homage to each other huh? MoH to CoD to BiA

You must be fun at parties.
Enemy  +   868d ago
Your attempt at logic failed pretty hard, Blaze. Not only did you fail at that, but you failed to realize that it looks exactly the same in GTA5 as it did in Uncharted 3, which was released two years ago. Or are we really going to call mere coincidence?
AridSpider  +   869d ago
this sound like something HipHopGamer would pull. That's no easter egg fools
ProA007  +   869d ago
TenSteps  +   868d ago
People seem to forget what an easter egg is. Easter Eggs are things hidden meant to be found. Last I checked this was one of Trevor's story missions so it doesn't even count.

Homage? Possible. Easter Egg? Definitely not.
Ducky  +   869d ago
Barring the fact that a shootout in a cargo plane isn't exactly unique (SaintsRow3, for example, also did it), this really doesn't seem like an easter egg.

There was a mission in San Andreas called Stowaway, where you ride a motorcycle into a cargo plane, fight government agents, dodge debris, steal a parachute, and blow up the plane.

Sounds pretty similar to Trevor's mission, doesn't it?

Trying to connect it as an easter egg for Uncharted3 is quite a stretch.
Interestingly enough, Uncharted3 uses the same name "Stowaway" for its plane scene, but that is likely just a coincidence too.

No, Naughty Dog got the idea from James Bond -
Austin48  +   869d ago
naughty dog has better story's than rockstar but rockstar and naughty dog both have fantastic gameplay. imagine if these two would make a game together

Better gameplay....I don't know man I don't think you can really compare the gameplay since the games are totally different. Ones a linear well told story and the other is an open world game which you can do whatever you want
PoSTedUP  +   869d ago
all of a sudden you are an ignorant weirdo making no sense in a reply bc Austin decided to stealth edit his comment, LOL.

Ha. Sometimes when I want to tear someone a new one and dazzle them with my insight, I'll wait til their 15 minutes is up. Its extra nice when they only have one bubble. ;)
BrezzyTv  +   869d ago
Rockstar are definitely some sly devils for this one. It doesn't look exactly the same but you can tell it was HEAVILY influenced
Arcanine  +   869d ago
thats interesting... but did anybody notice the difference in quality between the 2..? because uc3 was wayyyy better!
leahcim  +   869d ago
yes but GTA V is an openworld game
Skips  +   869d ago
Imagine Naughty Dog making an open world game with Rockstar's budget. lol

A whopping $265 million...

Arcanine  +   869d ago
i dont need the excuse of open world. If its there its there there is no need to dumb down a game they had plenty of time and money. the quality is better on UC3 thats all i said and its noticable.
Septic  +   869d ago
Difference in quality? You do realise that the set piece in Uncharted was purely linear whereas in this mission of GTA, *spoiler alert* you fly a crop duster across the map into a a cargo plane and then fly the cargo plane.....ALL IN REAL TIME.
Skips  +   869d ago
Maybe he was talking about quality up close??? Because Uncharted 3 definitely has better character models, fluid animations, and smoother shooting mechanics... While GTA V isn't really about those, but more about huge scope, exploration and whatnot.

And not to mention, we're talking about a $25 million budget vs. a $265 million budget here. lol
#4.2.1 (Edited 869d ago ) | Agree(11) | Disagree(2) | Report
Arcanine  +   869d ago
regardless the quality is better thats it why put more thought than what needs to be put. its noticable that uc3 looks better thats my comment. IDGAF about money or open world or cheats or limited edition. no excuses are need UC3 looks better that wasnt even an argumentive statement i was doing on purpose. i never said rockstar sucks. im just talking about graphics. heres one for you jump off the bandwagon!!!
DoctorJones  +   868d ago
Arcanine, Naughty Dog couldn't make an open world on ps3 with the visuals of UC2, I don't know why you can't seem to grasp what you're being told. If you think they could you don't have a clue what you're talking about, there's not unlimited power they can use.

UC2 looks that good because the scope of the game is a lot smaller than GTA5, a hell of a lot smaller.

TheUndertaker85  +   869d ago
Yes you can. Check your in game settings.

Directly from the GTA V Manual: L2 Button Aim Weapon/Lock On
DarkBlood  +   868d ago
yeah my bad i meant to say can* typing too fast is a bitch for me lol
Sizzon  +   869d ago
nice, definitely some similarities there.

2 of my favourite devs, rockstar and naughty dog ftw.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   869d ago
I'm sure they have mad respect for naughty dog,. after all naughty dog has better player control, and great movie like cut-scenes, that GTA was influenced by.
CcreapMurda310  +   868d ago
Theres my damn hat, give it back busta.
Evilsnuggle  +   869d ago
The two best developers in the game by far.
IHassounah  +   869d ago
I think Rockstar Games gave both 343 Industries and Naughty Dogs some respect cause they had some figure that shows master chief (in Lester's house) , and they got some gameplay mechanics from Naughty Dogs
DoctorJones  +   868d ago
How did they get any gameplay mechanics from Naughty Dog, please, do tell?
IHassounah  +   868d ago
Not full mechanics but what I mean is that they got the airplane scene and that is the same as the Uncharted 3 airplane scene but not fully ,"SPOILERS" cause at first Trevor enters the plane and crash it in the cargo plane , then he works his way to pilot the cargo plane , later on he jumps out with a jeep. this makes some mechanics similar in a way
e-p-ayeaH  +   869d ago
generic gta5 misson being compared to awesome cinematic uncharted 3 mission!?

just because he is on a plane shooting some dudes doesnt mean anything at all its not clear enough to be considered an reference.

If R* and ND had a baby together it would be called "pure sex"
Jamaicangmr  +   869d ago
When Franklin when to rescue Micheal from the Chinese gang and Micheal ended up shooting guys while hung upside down was a definite nod to the last of us.
Benchm4rk  +   868d ago
Grasping at straws I think
Bathyj  +   868d ago
I just did that mission. It was great fun but I wish it had gone longer. All those cars didnt roll at me cos when the guards hid behind them I blew them all up and I had to climb over the wreckage. And the view is amazing when you jump from the plane. The scale is spectacular.

BTW, WOW. You forget how incredible Uncharted looks and how well it plays. GTA is much improved in the shooting area but still lacking compared to other cover shooter mechanics like Uncharted or Max Payne. I think when I'm done with GTA in a month or so I may have to play the Uncharteds again.
zoks310  +   868d ago
ND version looks and plays way better. Crazy how good U3 looks when compared to a game that came 3 years after it.
Naughty Gods.
cactusjack  +   868d ago
so taking a scene from uncharted is "developer love", dont they call that theft in the real world.
