Oh, that silly Nathan! He always does the darndest things!

I don't even want to think about a next gen Uncharted, especially if some of those guys have been working on it since Uncharted 3 and were using next gen hardware. If they keep the linear nature of the game then the visuals will certainly set a standard for console games.

Uncharted 2 was released 2 years after drakes fortune and it was basically a 5 year quality game. Point is they are fast, and don't be surprised if they announce their next game soon.

They release the game fast because they already had the base engine in place.

Just look at COD, the reason why they keep releasing it so quickly and with the same "feel" is because the engine is already developed.

You heard it here first.
mattdillahunty  +   612d ago
it would be nice if it was in space. because that would likely mean it's a new IP, which the industry needs more of. Uncharted and The Last of Us were amazing, but we don't need sequels. we need NEW franchises that continue to blow us away (like TLoU recently did).

If there's one genre i would want ND to explore it would be sci fi. Imagine the Vistas, the sci fi music, the level design, the (alien) characters and story. Mmmmmmm.

I'd love it if they came up with a new space/interplanetary-based IP but I love me some Sci fi. They would have a very nice rotation of very different games - Uncharted for the Indy in all of us, The Last of Us because everyone loves a clicker, Jak and Daxter for platforming goodness, and then a space IP because space is cool.

You Sony fanboys kill your brand. So because it's in space you're looking at it as UNCHARTED ON THE MOON? Wow, what a bunch of kids. ND makes a great IP and everything they do now will be compared to UNCHARTED. Way to kill a franchise you idiots. Exclusives never survive on PS because of childish thinkers like yourselves.
boneso82  +   611d ago
Woah calm down dude. Why the aggression? People are clearly just having a laugh with the moon ideas and such, take it all with a pinch of salt, its humorous then instead of rage inducing.

Also "exclusives never survive on PS"! Really? Gran Turismo, Uncharted, infamous, ratchet and clank, god of war, motorstorm, metal gear solid... I could go on... These are all high quality, long lasting playstation exclusives, and that's just for this gen, never mind ps1 and 2. What have MS got? Forza, Halo and Gears, oh and Titanfall is coming, that's it and that's all it ever has been! So if you don't like sci fi shooters or racing sims, you have no reason to play Xbox
trenso1  +   611d ago
the way you make your point is unnecessary, but i do agree, while everyone is having a bit of a laugh with the uncharted moon thing. I don't see why people want another uncharted, since people are asking for a 4th. Three was very well done, but we don't need to see another one

Bones maybe you haven't seen the sales of those games because if you did you would notice they all didnt sell that well except for Gran Turismo which has been around since 1995.

Same here.

I can't believe they're doing motion capture for DLC. That's some serious attention to detail, and I'm very excited to have more TLOU to play. That level of commitment to their games needs two teams, or you'd be tortured waiting even longer between releases. Some of these guys have been together so long, that they must absolutely love what they do, and they will probably continue doing it for many more years.

Neil Druckmann is no joke at writing, either. I hope he has a lot of other ideas kicking around.

I'm dying for a proper space game as much as I am a proper dinosaur game!

...& I mean a proper realistic space game, no star wars action, just a genuinely more mature realistic going where (Very few) men have gone before. Where its more about just not having a clue what's out there & just searching for knowledge & trying to survive & creating rations & a means of living.

More a narrative adventure psychological horror - Maybe pushing towards an almost "Amnesia - In Space" vibe.

and now i think they're making Mass Effect ripo... uh sorry i mean killer
NarooN  +   611d ago
No, Killzone wasn't supposed to be a Halo-killer. The devs themselves stated this countless times after the stupid journos kept making those statements.

I was a massive KZ fanboy back in the day, I was following the game ever since there were low-quality videos from VHS tapes floating around. People who were following the game knew that aside from both of the games being FPS's, there weren't any real similarities at all.

Back in the day when KZ1 & KZl were the only KZ games out, I used to routinely chat with the developers at the official forums and even became a 'Killzone VIP'. A lot of the devs were fans of other shooters (naturally) and some played Halo. Some were friends with developers from Bungie and they told me a lot of people at Bungie at the time played Killzone and liked it a lot.

It's not always a console-war everywhere.

Naughty dog saw the potential of Star Wars 1313 and they are making a game like this:


Naughty Dog doesn't want to overexploit Uncharted, they'll make Savage Starlight with the same mechanics of Drake.

Halo is an amazing game but MS made a mistake replacing Bungie for 343 industries.

Destiny is the Halo of PS4. Bungie will give to PS systems the magic of Halo, much better, because it's a new story, with a vast universe, an optimized online, amazing weapons and with all the great experience of Bungie.

Sony doesn't needs to search the Halo experience, the Halo experience finds at Sony now with Bungie.
FanboyKilla  +   611d ago
Poor delusional child. you cant replace or duplicate halo. If so what are they waiting for? oh yeah the release of halo next year lol. you won't ever have the magic of halo without halo. and if the only reason you dont play it is because its not on the system you like you are a weak individual and your opinion isn't valid to me.
ravinash  +   611d ago
Yes Halo and gears were very good, but both came out at the end of Xbox and start of 360....does this mean that the only time MS will invest in a new IP is when the next Gen comes out.
So this means over the next couple of years, we'll only see new installments of either Titanfal or Ryse but nothing else for the next 6-8 years.
jrbeerman11  +   611d ago
He trolling and out of bubbles. Hell i like halo and gears and this guy's annoying me. Well done i guess.

Destiny is the new halo for me, mostly because im more of a coop guy, and having a loot element sounds amazing.
LEOPARD1030  +   611d ago
I'm big fan of Halo, I have games like Halo Anniversary and my favorite: "Reach", with the heroic story of Noble Team, but this is time to let go the franchise, the same thing I did with Killzone, I like the Helghast, but GG won't make a Helghast campaign, then I abandoned the series.

Halo is like the good things in the life, I had good moments, but the story and the mechanics are overexploited, Halo 4 is amazing but suffers of severe fatigue. The games are like the people, in some time you must let them go, to find new horizons and experiences.

Destiny is a new beginning, a new story with fresh characters, words and the most important a new universe to explore. Only is my opinion
jrbeerman11  +   611d ago
I agree, although i do like halo fiction (books>game) im going to probably splurge on an xbone for halo campaign. Multi still hasnt beaten halo 1 for me so i wont even bother this time (pistol fanboy)

Killzone on vita puts you on neutral role so you can at least team up with helghast for portions of that game if your interested.

I cannot wait for destiny, its everything i want in a game

I'm sure that anybody who has played UC3, and after finding the newspaper in the London pub would be scanning the environments of TLOU for clues to ND's next project.
bjmartynhak  +   612d ago
Considering that there is a ND team working on a new title since UC3, it seems a bit late for this visit... or not? Maybe it is the team working on TLOU? They probably have much less personnel working on the DLCs now.

The Santa Monica new ip is also sci-fi, add Killzone and the thematic could get repetitive. Thus, I bet it is going to be related to a second ND PS4 release (2016?)
