Did anyone really believe that it wasn't rendering real time? Naughty Dog teased they had something epic to show even though it was only that - a teaser. Do people still doubt Naughty Dog? People really think that ND will follow the rest of the industry and show non real time footage?

You can tell it's real time just by looking at it.

Running in-game is different than gameplay though. The uncharted 3/tlou cutscenes were in-game and looked better than the gameplay. Still gonna look amazing though.

I believe it actually said it was rendered on the PS4 before the trailer started.

Anyhow, if they manage to get close to this in the actual game play it's going to blow people away. The level of detail is just jaw-dropping.

I imagine we'll have to wait until next E3 to get any game play footage though.:(
Kingdom Come  +   539d ago
Whilst I am more than certain the game will be a masterpiece, especially through the direction of Neil Druckmann, I do wish people would refrain from prematurely labelling a title as "Game of the Year", despite having seen no gameplay footage and with it being presumably more than a year away...

Darkstares  +   539d ago
I have no doubt it will be a beautiful looking game but they showed no actual gameplay. You will also note in the game 1886: The Order how the graphics change from actual gameplay to when the game cuts into a non-controlled scene. All that is also running on PS4 hardware but the actual graphics get scaled back. Still a great looking game mind you.

I am super excited for fall of 2014 games, some exclusives and some 3rd party. But 2014 will be an epic year in gaming in general

The order 1886
The witcher 3
Halo 4
Uncharted 4
Star wars Battlefront
possibly Mass Effect


the most amazing thing about UC4 is that its still using the old ps3 engine. ND didn't even make a new engine for ps4.

Tetsujin  +   538d ago
(So far the majority of responses) "Oh no it's not, that's all CGI and cut scene because the internet said so! There's no way the PS4 is THAT capable of making games that good because of all the indie titles they keep over hyping and all the other games that have multiple screen tearing and lack of AA. I will NOT buy another Uncharted because it's a new generation; which means they NEED to work on another IP and move on. Just because the game looks pretty doesn't mean it will be good; look at UC3 and how crappy that game is?! You would think ND learned their lesson and moved on."

(now for a non-satire response)
I hope the game follows 1 and 2 more than 3 in terms of story; I know a lot of people will probably lynch me for this but I didn't care for 3 as much as I did 1 and 2. For the game to look THAT good THIS early in the PS4 life means games will only get better over time.

ltachiUchiha  +   539d ago
U remember when evan wells said, "Were going to experience a whole new Drake". Think back when they showed off Uncharted 2 with the helicopter scene & TLOU when joel fired an empty gun only to see the enemy react to it. I can bet that Naughty Dog will show something with that kind of hype but better. Prepare to get blown away. The small portion I seen was prolly not enough footage to really BLOW THE ROOF OFF, Naughty Dog style so im guessing they will wait & reveal it at the VGX Awards. This teaser was amazing though & I believe it will look just as good maybe even better when it is released.

lameguy  +   539d ago
Does a 'photo' mode in a racing game count as in-engine? In-engine cutscenes often showcase things... differently than during normal gameplay.
Snookies12  +   539d ago
Sure it counts, but no racer has achieved this level of realism. I'd bet my house this is pretty much gameplay. Naughty Dog has done incredible on PS3 given the hardware they had to work with. Even then, there wasn't an enormous level of difference between gameplay and cutscenes. So, with the hardware the PS4 has to offer, I can safely bet that this game will look almost exactly like this when playing.
MoveTheGlow  +   539d ago
Demos and in-game trailers are indeed weird. You just saw a cutscene that was most likely much more refined for e3 than the rest of the game - makes sense, since they want people to get a taste of what they're doing early on. The visuals *could* change as adjustments are made due to the mechanics and setpieces that are created later, but this is Naughty Dog here, not some chumps making an Ubisoft demo. I'm pretty certain they'll deliver well on their promises.
buffig  +   539d ago
There are different ways of looking at it. In engine could mean that it's still pre-rendered, but rendered using the engine. Photo mode is technically "in engine" but it's just a still. The cut scenes in the last of us have been confirmed to be both "in engine" and pre-rendered. The impressive thing in this case is that the footage is captured in engine and running on a PS4 in real time, which I find quite astonishing regardless of it being a cut scene. I think most people would comfortably watch a CGI movie at this quality, rendered using a warehouse full of rendering machines. To generate this on a £350 console is beyond belief.
JsonHenry  +   539d ago
This was not "gameplay" this was in-engine cutscene. I WISH the gameplay would look that good. It might be close (which is still impressive) but it won't look that good. Bookmark this page and come back when you finally see gameplay so I can say I told you so.
younglj01  +   539d ago
Wow....Holy shit....Can't believe that I'm sorry I need more footage because that was almost down right scary...

Seems like it was a really smart move to hire Corrinne Yu as a lead programmer. She had previously worked on Halo 4 and that game looked great for it's time but this Uncharted 4, it looks just phenomenal.

However, I can't help but to find it funny that she moved on to gaming business after having been involved in nuclear physics and space shuttle programs. Weird career development.

Can't believe people believe that is gameplay...

Even the first comment here's twitter screenshot clearly states that it is IN-ENGINE. That does NOT mean gameplay.

There is absolutely no chance that the game will have individual leaf physics, and individual particles for water that collides with other water particles.

It is impressive and I'm sure it will blow everyone away when proper gameplay is shown, but it isn't going to be THIS good.

Also here is a reminder of last time this happened and everyone believed it.

The sheer fact that you and the person below this (and apparently all the people who disagreed with me) think that it is fake makes it even funnier to see how delusional you fanboys are.

No one has said it was gameplay.

The naysayers immediately jumped onto the "it's CGI" bandwagon because they obviously couldn't believe that what they were seeing wasn't from the actual game. The fact is that it's an in-game cinematic, *not* CGI. Anyone with any knowledge of what naughty dog has done all last gen knows that they have never had pre-rendered cinematics, and that their cinematics have always been generated using in-game assets.

Uhhh you obviously no nothing of naughty dog since they used pre-rendered cinematics in uc 1-3 and tlou. In fact they said the same thing about the tlou reveal that they said about the uc4 trailer last night which turned out to be all pre-rendered footage.

They even posted a pic themselves awhile ago of the 7 or 8 ps3s all wired together used to pre-render all the cinematics.

Yes, thank you to all the usual naysayers downplaying the graphics.

Yes, we all know the difference between in game and in engine, just some of you didnt know the difference between in engine and CGI.

We also know gameplay is never quite as good as cutscenes in any game but we also know Naughty Dog games raise the bar EVERYTIME and there is never a jarring difference between the two that detracts from the game.

Bottomline is, you NEVER have to worry about graphics in a Naughty Dog game.

My only disappointment is that they didnt show just two seconds of gameplay because I felt when the camera went behind him it was going to rest in that comfortable, familiar position and the cutscene would blend seamlessly into gameplay. If it had, we wouldnt even be having this conversation.

It took me 5 secs to realize it was an game. The "fly" was an amazing way to show the detail they is trying to achieve. What caught my eye more then anything is the water and the sand. The detail of those elements allow is something usually in High-End PC CG tech demos.

But too achieve that quality on an $400 machine is just unheard of...Mark Cerny is truly an genius. I think PS5 will have an better PC technology. PS5 will be something I think would borderline realism and that's something I'm scared of tbh...

Look what simple peasants can do to master races: watch Assassin's Creed Unity gameplay and see how simple peasants DECAPITATED master races, and that was with the help of assassins which are The Order 1886 and Uncharted 4 at 1080p/60FPS. Sadly two assassins were missing or not connetced yet (lol AC unity has 4 assassins coop) and the missing assassins are Quantum Dream game and GOW4 which I am sure will look even better than Uncharted 4 (also Guerilla Games open wolrd rpg is a secret 5th assassin working in the shadows lol. Sony was too much indulgent , otherwise if all 4 assassins were connected and playing together at the satge, it will be a massive massacre for all master races lol /s
user5669510  +   538d ago
pc games do not focus on mocap and facial animation like ND do. i could say other games like star citizen and a lot of modded games look better. but UC4 is a corridor shooter and it the char models look way better. i can comment on anything else because everything else was blurry out around him.

games with mass games at 4k vs maybe 1080p corridor shooter? yeah its best not to compare console games with pc. you dont want people to start posting gta, skyrim, and up coming games.

i have complete faith in ND but i will wait and see before before claiming anything, especially with the limited footage.

above idk they barely showed anything except char model. the char model looks great tho. and crysis is running at 4k on pc this is 1080(who knows what res at launch). does resolution not matter again or do it? like i said ill wait to i see more before hyping.

they already stated that the order is not going to be 1080p for many reasons. if UC$ is 1080p what will be your excuse. every multiplat was on pc. best looking game with a cut scene with everything blurry and with environments we seen for the longest. crysis easily trumps the environment but char model is better in UC4

Yes the developers claim...
@A7MADAU They are in game visuals in 3D captured on a Playstation 4.

Yes just as drakes were in game....captured and pre-rendered using in game engine on ps3

Anything can be in game.

Fmv can be in game
Pre-rendered using the game engine in game (just like drakes fortune 1, 2, 3)

Then the real question is asked...

@Corrinne @A7MADAU They are in game but real time or pre-render just like TLOU or U series cut-scene?

But to no avail....
