Here's a few more screens from Naughty Dog's upcoming PS3 title that found their way out, and they're even more impressive than the last bunch.
The jungle looks amazing - just wish we had direct feed images instead of these crappy scans!
Interesting that the final soundtrack will react dynamically to the onscreen action ingame :P that's cool.
You saw the original one right? Their animations for this are mind blowing. Just sooo good. I believe the original was ingame, since Naughty Dog have never released footage that wasn't using the ingame engine before. And yeah Naughty Dog AI and movement is the best - they designed their own AI programming system which is used a lot in the industry now and I hear it's far superious to other methods. :P
ps. are these scans from Edge magazine? As these shots weren't on the GI scans.
Oh and I forgot to say DJ...it's Uncharted: Drake's FORTUNE :)
I'm just waiting for the gameplay videos, 'cause Naughty Dog's games always look amazing in motion. I'm actually not sure where these came from, but it looks like G.I.'s preview was older than originally thought.
Hopefully they'll put more than 1 or 2 characters in these scenes. Right DJ?
The interview preview said, they will have 2 characters on your sides? not sure if they are playable (most likily not). One is the girl who's a journalist i think, and the 2nd one is a elderly gentleman who's named is Sullivan or something. He's suppose to be your mentor and come to your rescues from time to time i think.
Due to the setting of the story, its hard for me to imagine there would too many characters to interact with. But i dont know, just guessing.. treasure hunt, deserted island, u know what i mean. I am hoping i will like this one, bc i hated all the tomb raider for some reason. Hope there will be more even amount of action vs. crazy puzzles on this one.
From footage there are more than 1 or 2 characters, as for a start you are joined by a filmmaker and there are quite a few enemies.
I should have realised...silly DJ. I apologise.
It has nothing to do with anything. My comment was a bit of sarcasm. The comment is actually what DJ said about Mass Effect screen shots in February. The game looks great and the point is that the comment is pointless. Just having a little fun:)
nice find man
im loving this game
Thanks DJ for the screens, looking at individual leaves on a tree or vine rather than the same old Unreal-Engine style texture leaves is a sight I had been so long in waiting. Now its affirmative that there is a game and in the very first year of PS3 launched that pulls off this feat of insane polygon frenzy and even with individual grass blades that sway with the wind.
You guys do remember Naughty Dog's PS2 masterpiece Jak 3 right? That title was among the very first that had me stunned at how much polys it threw on-screen. Just going into the non-loading, seamless desert and watching that every pebble, every vegetation and every thorn on the cactus tree were whole 3D objects rather than textures, and mostly were destroyable at that, was a sight both delightful and awe-inspiring. And all the mountains were a collection of individual giant rocks...with day and night models changing the light over them !...it was insanity, and the devs who could pull that stuff on a 7 years old PS2 can be guaranteed to rock the world when it comes to the power of PS3...and its just the start yet !!!
The more im starting to realize. Drake is one of the PS3's secret weapons. Could this be. An answer to Gears. Imagine that. Without even knowing or using the Unreal Engine 3. Naughty Dog vs. Epic ?
Well you guys know me. You can definetly expect comparison videos. I'll have them here Asap.
I guess we can finally see some 2nd Gen vs. 2nd Gen action.
Haha, it would be interesting to see how this one goes. But i think i can imagine the result already. PS3 brighter!!! Xbox darker but more anti-aliasing!!! or whatever bull the two sides of fanboys pull out..
But these two games are in very different art-direction, it will be difficult to compare them IMO.
This game looks freakin unbelievable!
All of the textures and lighting just looks incredible and they're all in-game, and by the looks of that jeep speeding through the forest, I know that there will be crazy action
Yep, PS3 is not built to play games. right MART? clearly tease pics show the PS3 lacking in power...Right MART? Oh! I almost forgot. you wont be hearing from her much more.
very outrageous and ambitious are the guy over at naughty dog, after all they are the one that gave playstation there mascot, crash bandicoot... and that game was amazing, and then in the ps2 cycle it was the impressive masterpiece, the jak series... This is by far among the best of the second gen games for the ps3 thats certainly eating away at what the xbox360 has to offer. and to think that this game is using the "ICE engine" that was built speciafically for graphic textures and AI on the ps3, coupled by the "PS Edge", which works with the cell and RSX in tandem... amazing stuff. I've always been a fan of naughty dogs mater piece and this along with Insomniac's R&C future: will be a games to show why the ps3 shouldn't be plainly written of because of bad publicity in it's early outing, after all the 360 when in this same scrutiny when they launched in 05 after their poor E3 showing in that year.
man this year is looking to be big...
Ms 2007 line up:
Mass effect, halo 3, forza 2, PGR4, Shadowrun, blue dragon, GTA4, AC and lost odessey(in japan)
Ps3 line up for 2007:
Lair, Heavenly Sword, GTA4, DMC4, MGS4, Killzone, R&C future, AC, Uncharted: DF, and warhawk, Tekken 6, Ninja gaiden: Sigma.
and nintendo 07 line up: Mario galaxy, Metriod prime 3: corruption, Smash bro's brawl, and thats all i can think of.
this year is gonna be one hell of a year. Ms is showing it's guns and sony isn't backing down either. the games are coming people they are coming.... and you know what this year is the year ps3 gets it apples in the basket and then 2008 will be the year it shows why it's the king .
games like FF13 and versus 13, white knight Story, RE5, 8 days, GT5, Wipeout, LBP, Monster hunter 3 Onimusha 5.
man 0h revealing day for ps3, while MS will too human, huxley and probably Gears of war 2.
I wonder how interactive the environment is. It looks nice, but will it have the same interactivity as the flora in Crysis?
The pic of him (Drake) standing on that truck is simply priceless..wow! look at that jungle,hollysh*t
Looks really nice and the video is awesome. Really nice animtation and it looks like he makes good use of cover in a firefight.
And remember these are just crappy scans. Have a look at some of the old screens and check out the texture work on them. Games are getting better and better.
Who willing to bet with me that once you're in game there will be no loading times, like Jak & Daxter. Seamless, I'm predicting.
The more I see things like this, the more I want to see Afrika.
I guess all of you have seen someone actually playing the game, true ingame footage? If not I don't see the hype. Sure, it's nice to look at but so was many of the trailers Sony showcased at E3 2006. It's funny how easily people forget. I'm not trying to bash Ps3 in any way, some of the games that are out look great. But seriously, any experienced gamer can spot that the shots aren't of someone playing the game. I mean look at the camera angles. Also the animation seen in trailers behaves in a way that would not be possible ingame. I'm just saying, donät get your hopes up too much before you've seen what the game actually plays like. Although I don't doubt Naughty Dogs capability of creating amazing games.
Jenzo! I just want to pay respect to your avatar.
Ahhhhhhh the Amiga days! Good times.
I trust naughty dog. They have never released a trailer that isn't ingame engine. Also their target for this game was for realistic movement that is responsive - hence why the movements in the trailer looked ahead of their time. Let's just say you'll be very pleasently surprised :)
Oh and camera angles? Look at Heavenly Sword and eventually Too Human - the camera is becoming more cinematic and out of the gamers hands.
Coolfool - you're wrong - we've already seen leaked gameplay screens from one of the designers and they look just as impressive
With all the "target renders" and cut scene footage it is easy to remain skeptical that in-game will look or play anything as impressive as these screens suggest it might.
I think these screens are definately not game play footage but are the in-game engine.
I think the video is all game engine, and I think the over the shoulder shooting parts are actual gameplay. It looks great, but not CGI great. Definately game engine graphics and I would guess show actual gameplay mechanics and animation.
If not just no good for me.
Does Naughty Dog have something else up their sleeves outside of the Jak and Drake series? With Insomniac, I think they will be releasing a new RFOM and Rachet game every other year. Do you think Naughty Dog will follow ... Or will they introduce a third franchise? Just throwing this out there as I'm curious what my brothers in all things gaming think. Sorry for being all sappy but I'm feeling a fuzzy inside after seeing these screens. Oh, "In Naughty Dog I trust" when it comes to delivering a solid game.
I heard around when resistance was being talked about for the PS3, that they were working on another shooter besides the Resistance serious or something, so it looks like they have 3 games, hopefully Naughty Dog has a few as well :)
Naughty Dog also makes brilliant gameplay, so this will be good.
They should show more at E3 2007
how open is the game? if it gives you the option of exploring outside of the story, it could be a GOY candidate. looks very good. the good ol adventure days.
They should have enough room on that disc to do anything
All I have to say is, they better get that Killzone out soon, because the E3 trailer is beginning to look less and less impressive.
The article about Ken K. saying PS3 has reached the Second Gen of gaming with the next wave of titles.
Well LMFAO @ everyone who laughed at him. The old fool wasnt lying after all.
PS3 just Pwned doubting Fanboys. Just happy to see them pull themselves together. November 2006 to Late January 2007 were hard months for the PS3. Real hard.
But what does 2nd gen mean? Does it just mean they look better?
Fact of the day: did you know that the Edge tool that Sony provided is a combination of tools made by 1st party and 2nd party devs?
Its not just looks. But dev's have learned even more than they originally knew about the hardware and have found more ways to squeeze power out of it. Thats the only logical explanation for the terminology. So 2nd Gen probably and more likely means they have figured out new and useful ways to play with the cell and RSX combo to get better results. So Microsoft was being pretty foolish when they said they will always be a "Gen" ahead in games. They knew better than what they were saying but its all apart of their PR. They like to rally up their fans.
Sony attacks Microsoft directly.
Microsoft attacks Sony via Fanboy army.
you, as well as i, have seen most of the sony fans using the 1st gen vs 2nd gen crap since the system came out. "well r:fom is 1st gen and gears is 2nd gen" every other topic, even though they both started production at basically the same time. difference. the majority of things that sony only fans b*tch about towards the 360, they didn't seem to have a problem with on their PS2.
that Gears of War was in development for so long that it actually forced Microsoft to change the RAM specs for the 360 (late 2004). Insomniac on the other hand didn't even touch final PS3 hardware until May 2006. In fact, the very reason so many PS3 titles got such a noticeable performance upgrade between E3 and TGS '06 is because some major pieces of hardware were missing in the Alpha and Beta kits (i.e. FlexI/O Memory Bus and the RSX GPU). Up until then they were using 7800GTX's connected through PCI to the motherboard.
if you clickout on the link to the gameplay screenshots they are complete garbage. The screens embedded on this page are not gameplay. Stop seeing what you want to see and open your eyes.
http://ps3forums.com/showth... thats the link to the gameplay which looks last gen to me. But you all can look at airbrushed crap and try to convince yourself thats what it will look like if you want.
To deepbrown re comment below. Did you even click on the link I provided here? It looks like a PS2 game with no anti aliasing and poor textures on the clothing. It looks alot like a Tony hawk character from last gen. Say what you want the images on this page are not gameplay period. Please refrain from personal insults it makes you look desperate and fanboyish and you dont want that do you?
haha that looks last gen!? They look better than these ones! Those were from the trailer. Wow. Some of these people have the eyes of gimps.
To above. Why don;t you go and watch the trailer it came from and watch the animation you muppet. http://www.naughtydog.com/c... Amusing everybody thought that trailer was CGI and now it doesn;t impress. Impresses the hell out of me
Also I don't know if you know how well devs are getting at polishing up their graphics in a matter of months now. Heavenly Sword are doing it, and it is being done here too. They have a whole year since that trailer. We'll see more at e3 so be ready to be surprisedI am still hella pleased with the original footage even though you are unimpressed - it was a trailer that got me going WOW whn I saw it.
the animations in that trailer are also what the ingame gameplay will be like :P
"This trailer is really just the tip of the iceberg as far as what you can expect from the gameplay in the final product. Animation has been a huge focus for us in terms of where we've been spending our development resources and is really something that we think will set next-generation games apart from current-gen. Bringing a realistic human character to life in a believable way, but still maintaining the controllability has been our emphasis."
And yes i am a fanboy of good games. So shoot me.
And last gen visuals in that trailer? You have to be kidding me...have a gander at this screenshot - just as good as the ones posted today.
Are you intentionally ignoring what I wrote? I didnt say trailer I said the screen shots (which the article is about). Stop personally attacking people in defense of your Hype Station 3. I agree the trailer looks good after seeing it but I was commenting on the screenshots not the trailer. Try reading posts before you attack. You guys are all drooling over this game cause you hardly have any games to drool over. Graphically this game is not that impressive to anyone who has a 360 but I can see why you get all excited when everything on PS3 looks so bad at the moment.
Yeah, deep, get it right! Don't you know that whenever you take a screenshot of any game but the ones on the XBox360 they go from HD to polygonal semi-stick figures that are worse than the LAST generation graphics?! You are such a noob, deep!
illbientone you have almost won the Fanboy of the Day award in my book. It almost amazes me how people can spew out blatant lies like that. And yeah, I read your posts a few times over. You still have bits of that HEFTY bag between your teeth.
I know deep got the sarcasm I was showing above, but to the rest of you I assure you it was sarcasm, except for the illbientone part.
Eyes of gimps! That's funny because it sounds so absurd. I've never heard of that one before......Then again, come to think of it, there where gimps in the last Resident Evil game that couldn't see.....I guess in that context, it makes a lot of sense. Anyways, the game looks amazing! This is obvious.
if the theys one thing i like about sony is its exclusive so unique and well done, different genre's look at god of war, grand turismo
They've definitely got all their bases covered. Currently, these franchises are still MIA: Jak & Daxter, Sly Cooper, SOCOM, ATV Offroad Fury, Twisted Metal, Ace Combat, The Getaway, Wipeout, etc.
yeah this game looks mighty tastey. Here is a link to the game footage, its the second post down. Enjoy
Better quality video from Naughty dogs homepage
From the ign Q&A
Evan Wells: The entire trailer was rendered in real-time using our PS3 game engine. All of the models, textures, shaders and effects are in-game.
dang that trailer looks awsome smokey. man o man. i been waiting for a game to make me decide on what console i wanna buy and i think i found it. anyone know when its release date is.
I didn't actually know it was inengine originally. That's a great surprise - and considering it's going to be over a year since that trailer released when it comes out. So wow...we have some nice surprises coming our way.
MY MY MY!!!! This game looks amazing. I can see myself spending days playing this. Nice link Smokey that was awesome.
know when SOCCOM for the ps3 come out?
this game looks great. Does anyone know when is coming out?
I was a little harsh on this in my earlier post on the screens. It looks better in motion thanks for the video link a few posts up. This is a departure form other PS3 titles since this one seems to have alot more color in it. graphics arent mind blowing but the gameplay looks fun. I like the realistic jumping climbing etc. (ie not 400 foot leaping over buildings.)
Considering people that is translating the words he say's are the
ones to blame not him and plus ever since Sony gave them that PS3
edge tools those game developers are going to go crazy with those tools
and probably wondering how helpful the PS3 edge tool really is.
Very impressive, but why does everyone seem to think it'll end the world or something?
My only gripe is it's a little too green and yellow a charectoristic i hate about PS3 with a passion.
Sony attacks Microsoft directly with a good game every once in a while and with smuthering console killing fanboy hype using Jack Abromoff/ Weapons of mass destruction like tactics.
Microsoft attacks Sony with 3-5 great looking titles for evrey one; Sony title!.
From them screenshots i can say that the lighting looks awesome, great job on the lighting other than that its does not look impressive to me.
AW pees all over this game.
of course it looks good.
show me some actual gamplay vids before I decide if i'm impressed or not.
Check you PMIn/outbox people.
If these are "impressive", then I'd hate to see what the last batch looked like...
alright then. Xbox360 has 3-5 great looking titles? okay then Name them all.
Heavenly sword; Name 3-5 titles
Rachet and clank; Name 3-5 titles
Motorstorm; Name 3-5 titles
Lair; Name 3-5 titles
Final fantasy 13; Name 3-5 titles
Mgs4; Name 3-5 titles
Devil may cry 4; Name 3-5 titles
Drakes fortune; Name 3-5 titles
White night story; Name 3-5 titles.
Ill stop it from there. Now you Please proceed. Oh dont worry ill wait. Since you have the odacity to boast that fanboyish comment in the ps3 board at that, why not back it up? And don't include past OR multiplatform titles. All exclusives.
ya need to chill.many of you guys usually start bashing when a games grafix aint totally amazing(i'm not saying this games grafix suks).many gamers sometimes foget that gameplay is moe important(knowing this is naughty dog i know its going to be fun).having good grafix is a very nice feature but not the main reasons i play games.look at final fantasy 7.its grafix arent az good az games are right now but IMO is still and will always be in my top 3 fav games(so far).
can you guys just chill and get along.
NAS says hip-gop iz drad.....well the way some yall ""GAMERS"" act i say gaming is dead!
p.s this game looks awesome and knowing that ND iz making it its already on my wanted list.
