The Last of Us Real-Time vs Pre-Rendered Models Tease The Graphical Jump For Uncharted On The PS4

GearNuke: "A few weeks ago, we heard about how Uncharted on PS4 will offer the visual fidelity of the cutscenes of The Last of Us on PS3. This sounds pretty good, right? But how big of a jump are we talking about here? We can see this by taking a look through the gameplay and the pre-rendered cutscenes of The Last of Us on the PS3."

I think it will surpass the cutscenes in The Last of Us. E3 is going to be amazing this year for sure! Naughty Dog are masters at game development. That's why I'm more excited to see Uncharted PS4 more than anything.

GarrusVakarian1359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

It will be truly amazing when ND show Uncharted 4 at E3 (hopefully). If Infamous can have this in-game character model in an open world game - (that's my own screenshot, btw. DEM CLOTHES!).....

...then just imagine what Uncharted 4's character models will look like in a linear setting.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1359d ago

Yea I have Infamous: Second Son and it's the best looking console game I've ever played and it's very clean looking. I'm loving the game and the powers are so awesome.

Spenok1359d ago

Yeah this game is fantastic. Absolutely beautiful. And if they keep uncharted linear, which they probably will. Then it sure will blow everything else out of the water. As Infected says, I:SS is easily the best looking console game on the market at the moment. And if it looks this good this early on, I can only imagine what the future will bring. :D

pedrof931359d ago

What exactly is pre-rendered model ?

Its like a cgi movie being played ? That take no effort on the console ?

Or simply are different assets being rendered ?

GTgamer1359d ago

Were talking about Nauthy Dog here UC4 will look wayyyyyy more better than those TLOU cutscences which are awesome BTW.

TheTwelve1359d ago

That was in-game, Lukas???? Goodness...

GarrusVakarian1359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )


Yep, in-game. I just stood in front of the car headlight and pressed "share" :)

And that screenshot is a little compressed too, it looks a little better in person. Very, very good image quality on that game.

DigitalRaptor1359d ago

Damn, I've never managed to get an angle in-game that provides such clarity. Thanks for sharing.

This game is soooo clean, and it's open-world.

Uncharted 4 will look mindbogglingly good.

guitarded771359d ago

Thing about this gen which has impressed me the most visually is the lighting. inFAMOUS Second Son has some sick lighting and particle effects. A game like Uncharted with so many light and dark environments should really show this well... especially with Naughty Dog being Naughty Dog.

Sci0n1359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

The beauty of SS just has you often stopping your gameplay to survey the scenery. My brother who is a true pc elitist said himself SS looks like a game on a super gaming PC rig on ultra settings. Console games don't grab his attention too much but SS did and I keep telling him wait until he sees UC4. I know ND will come threw on that one.

Sevir1359d ago

I think Infamous's lighting is Second to none on next gen consoles!!! The lighting engine and the particle effects blow everything released on any console thus far, this is by far the definition of Next Gen. The particle effects the textures, everything is just top notch.

I just beat the game on my hero play through.. it was such a blast... And the 2 powers, ******** and ***** (spoiler-free for those who didn't play it) are well done! Especially *****... Sucker punch definitely puts this franchise on a new level... It's freak awesome.

starchild1359d ago

Think about the Infamous and Uncharted games on the PS3. Uncharted blew Infamous away. Now think about how good Second Son looks and just imagine what Naughty Dog are going to achieve.

guitarded771359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

Here's a shot I took where I was like "Oh s#!t". Shot is straight from the PS4, but this is what I want to see in Uncharted. Like I say, they use so many different environments since U2, and day and night were both impressive on the PS3, so the PS4 should be impressive. Uncharted should be even more impressive considering inFAMOUS is an open world game.




abzdine1359d ago

i don't think U4 will be shown at E3 this year. The reason is that Sony needs and will put The Order in the frontline because it is one of the biggest exclusives to come out this year and they wanna make the first episode as successeful as possible to make the way for future iterations.

They will be showing some gameplay of The Order to give people that wow effect from U2 live demo back in 2009.

Expect U4 gameplay at VGX this year instead.

BelkingOfSony1359d ago


when I clicked on that screenshot I swear I thought that was real life until my gaming brain kicked in and told me it was infamous second son

Can't wait to see what Naughty Dog have in store for PS4 and of course to be able to play The Last Of Us for the fifth time albeit with a much crisper looking world :)

Evilsnuggle1359d ago

The Order is the best looking game i have ever seen. The Order 1886 is Ready at Dawn First AAA games . Now if The Order 1886 is the best looking game imagine what a game from Naughty Dog is going to be like On PS4. Just a thought

TheDarpaChief1359d ago

isnt the resolution on the order low? like 800x640 or some weird number right? looks like crytek was right after all cause the order is indeed incredible from a visual standpoint

GutZ311359d ago


You are wildly misinformed. Please take a moment to look at any news source for correction on the resolution of The Order.
1920x800 is the frames used.

It is a wide screen variant, and loses no quality in image from stretching, or up scaling.

ITPython1359d ago

@TheDarpaChief - From what I remember, The Order is going to be 1920x800, which simply adds black bars to the bottom and top for a more cinematic experience. I don't think they lowered the resolution for performance reasons, it's just the artistic direction they wanted the game to go in.

BitbyDeath1359d ago

Resolution output is 1080p with black trim at the top and bottom of the screen just like how Beyond 2 Souls was 720p but also had black trim at the top and bottom of the screen.

Illusive_Man1359d ago bars reduce the number of pixels that need to be on screen at once.

Bathyj1359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

Dont let the numbers confuse you Darpa. The resolution is the exact same image quality as 1080p. Its would be like you were playing a 1080p game and put black tape on the top and bottom of your TV. It would change the picture quality.

The difference with a game thats 720p or 900p is that picture gets stretched out to fit on your screen, and its therefore, not as sharp.

Plus The Order has 4xMSAA which I dont think any other console game has. Combine that with the cloth physics and breakable materials in the world and its going to look quite special.

TheDarpaChief1359d ago

not being stupid but is it better looking than mgs5? i havent got infamous yet but from what ive seen of mgs its gonna be hard to top

GW2121359d ago

I have both games. Infamous is absolutely better. MGS looks very good but you'll be shocked when Infamous starts up.

Pintheshadows1359d ago

I have both and Infamous is a truly beautiful game. They are both gorgeous though but just wait until you see Second Son. And play it as it feels beautiful.

starchild1359d ago

Yeah, Infamous Second Son definitely looks a lot better. Ground Zeroes looks very good, but it's a bit more inconsistent. Some of the textures and shader work looks a little "last gen" or at least not up to the standards of the rest of the graphical elements.

Infamous Second Son looks astoundingly good.

Sarcasm1359d ago

Yup, I've been playing Infamous SS and am wowed by the quality of the in game models, but I know ND will surpass it easily.

PrinceOfAllSaiyans1359d ago

I hope Sony goes all out for E3, Nintendo too. I'm really excited for U4. But I think I may be more excited for The Order 1886. And I really hope The Order 1886 and Uncharted 4 are released this year. The Order in October and Uncharted in November.

mysteryraz111359d ago

it better look better then last of us cutscenes infamous second son and order1886 have superior graphics to the last of us pre rendered cutscenes

MidnytRain1359d ago

The main thing that held back TLOU was all those awful jaggies. Wonder what anti-aliasing they'll be using in their next game.

mysteryraz111359d ago

no the game was still very pretty

MidnytRain1359d ago


I'm confused: You don't like anti-aliasing?

plaZeHD1359d ago

Why are you getting dislikes? It's true The Last Of Us suffers from outdated hardware, both in graphics and gameplay.

Ezz20131359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )


you and him getting disagrees because people can have different opinions
since non of what he said and what you said are facts..just opinions

me and most Gamers/Developer/Reviews don't find TLOU suffer anything
and it's a Classic that no one will forget
no wonder it won most awards in history from both gamers and reviews ...and developers
and no wonder most gamers don't want sequel for it because they view it as another ICO/SOC Type of classic
i wouldn't mind a ps4 version though with Next gen gfx though with that new gameplay with clickers and hunters in the same area from TLOU Story DLC and that's it

MidnytRain1359d ago

Anyone who disagrees with me is a probably a fanboy or doesn't see the shadow aliasing EVERYWHERE in this pic (from the article)

OpenGL1358d ago

I think an even bigger issue with the image quality in TLOU comes from the low-resolution particle buffers, and some shadows being extremely blocky in certain environments.

Overall though I still think TLOU looks great, probably the best looking game on 7th gen consoles. Had you showed me TLOU in 2006 and said it was a PS4 title I probably would have believed it when comparing it to stuff out at the time like Resistance.

Can't wait for E3.

e-p-ayeaH1359d ago

E3 will be bound in hype

Ipunchbabiesforfun1359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

off topic: I saw my first PS4 in a store yesterday at Best Buy, unfortunately i was looking for a GTX 770 for my PC lol. The only one I'd seen so far is the one I ordered from Amazon on launch day, i was shocked, it was on the front table and they only had 1 haha next to like 8 xbox ones. Wanted to buy a 2nd one so bad but couldn't afford $900 between that and the new GFX card.

On topic- i can't wait for this game!

WeAreLegion1358d ago

Dude. You're buying a graphics card from Best Buy? NewEgg and TigerDirect, bro! Save yourself some money!
