Wow 7,300 animations ..the animations definately will not get old. Its gonna be so real .. i thought Uncharted was kool because it had like 3000 animations.

I wonder what they will include in their features for HOME. We saw the Heavenly Sword t-shirt back at GDC. Perhaps you can carry the Heavenly Sword around with your HOME character for completing 100% of the game!

That would be cool!

Ninja Theory and ND use a very different animation system. As you should know ND have a layering animation system, meaning they can layer many animations on top of one another - this means that that number 3000 grows to an almost infinite amount (saying almost infinite is meaningless, but you know what I mean).

ND's goal is to reach a moment where you don't see the character do the same thing twice. Whereas NTheory, although have a similar goal, also want to make the best looking fighting moves going.

Still impressive. Drake Uncharted - The 3000 animations is just Drake only not counting enemies on the screen. Not sure what the number of animation is for the enemies in Uncharted.

Both these games are going to blow us away.
