Here is a comparison of Uncharted's 2006 target-render with its contemporary counterpart - from video footage from the last couple of months.

The 2007 screenshots look leaps and bounds better than the 2006 ones...even though they are captures from a video. What are you getting at Hydrolex?
ps. I concur - it was an early build, not a target render.
wow the 2007 shots look leaps and bounds better than the 2006 target.. this game is gonna be something.
lol is everyone taking the piss? Do american's not say "leaps and bounds"? is it a terribly British thing to say? lol
I only agree with you deep on the enviorments, I think the character models specially skin look much more plastic then in the render.
The enviorments seem to have taken a slight swerve in terms of art form, Much darker...ect Though they look better then the render, I still think skin looks more plastic now.
Edit: upon further viewing of different picture *those aren't very good in terms of compression* the Plants leaves have a plastic quality now too, leaves are not that shiny in darkended areas only in sunlight, and most leaves aren't that shiny at all.
And that looks worse how Will? To create that look is a more complex render than the previous flat look. If you want to read about their painterly art style please go ahead - because it is completely deliberate, to make them stand out from the crowd.
They decided this art style AFTER the 2006 render. So what you talk of is merely preference, and nothing to do with the strength of the graphical effects within the game.
Environments darker? Uh...many of the ones attached are in the shade. The HDR lighting actually makes the daylight ones brighter...and the light shines through the leaves. Plus textures are immense: (wet drake also looks cool :p)
They're like 2 completely different style the 2006 one looks cartoony and the 2007 looks a lot better because it's more realistic.
a lil obsessive about the game deep?
Simply Put No the stuff isn't all ways in shade, the enviorment is darker.
The main dude has a more gruff look he looks meaner, The enemies look meaner and darker, The enviorments are DARKER, In one screeny hes up againest a pillar on a white type wall yet the scene looks dark, more gritty, if you look in the background you can see arches which he is againest the arches go all the way through but no light is comming onto him=darker.
and its not preference you can easily see that when the characters are in a lighted enviorment their skin looks plastic, Its shiny as hell, Even with a muzzle flash of a weapon your skin doesn't light up in a plastic manner.
stop being so obesseive I didn't say the game looked like crap, i simply made a statement that it looks darker, The older target renders with their (flat colors) looked more real then the plastic new ones.
*Humans have a flat tone this is simple fact, even when perspiring*
so looking like plastic is more real?....i dont think i've ever seen a human shine when in the light.
Those pictures are from an older build of the game.
There was a VAST improvement over their 2006 build... awesome to see really. EVERYthing about the later build looks way better... lighting, character models, environment, art detail, etc... Naughty Dog has done a good job pushing their vision on this game!
"The older target renders with their (flat colors) looked more real then the plastic new ones.
*Humans have a flat tone this is simple fact, even when perspiring* "
Will, there is a reason you are not an artist... seriously...
Deep, this is the same guy who said Ratchet & Clank looks like "crap"... don't bother...
Its all just sour grapes... the latest game play footage looks better than the earlier flat shaded ones... everyone knows it...
This game looks incredible.
clearly current build looks much better(more defined I guess) than the old target render.
looks alot better than the earlier version (minus the wacked out contrast levels)
BTW I bet you like looking at the wet drake pictures deep :p
to HALO 3---poor low poly models and cartoon graphics
What a shame for MS and x360?
i find it that all pictures that are taken now is better and more realistic then the target one's except his face!!
did any one heard his voice?? am interested in his charector and voice!!
and the story!! i hope they put a decent story!! if the story is not good then many people will complain!!
What is it with you british, that mmakes you think you are so much better than Americans, remember we came from england, dumbass.
you big copy cat
hehe i coulnt have said it any better, so i didnt
I think that was early build not TARGET render.. anyway new footage is REALLY AMAZING (more realistic than 2006 target render!! )..
character models,lighting,amount of textures,animations,visual effects,water physics.... all are No.1
good job ND.
EDIT : wow the 2007 shots look leaps and bounds better than the 2006 target.. this game is gonna be something.
BTW STFU WilliamRLbaker plz... S T F U ... lol ..
looks way way way better. I wonder how KZ 2 will look next year.
The last build i have seen of the game it looked like there was more color to it more then the one they showed at E3. So we should see some more improvement next year but I think there more focused on making the A.I. better.
so they have hit that target now they are working out bugs and getting the online right
the target material looks much to 'clean' and 'cartoony'. while uncharted obviously isnt a M rated or gritty grainy game, it still manages to be exceptable on everyones eye while still maintaining a little 'edge'.
also a complete lack of HDR in the render.
theres always in denial. and you know what. im tired of them taking my bubbles away. everybody here should give bubbles to each other. im giving bubbles to all of you right now.
i'm really fellin'it.
dont worry about the "trolls"
if they say something like "THE 2006 VERSION LOOKS WAAAAY BETTER"
many will look like idiots
because i remember when the first video of UDF was on this site many 360/ps3 fanboyz alike didnt think it was real.
they thought it was CG
gave you a buuble
looks real good
I like the 2007 in-game screen shot better
I'm a big fan of high dynamic lighting, and Naughty dog use them well
With joy when I saw this. Awesome work Naughty - you made my day
game is going to be sweet..
Uncharted going to one of the best looking game for the PS3 i cant imagine next year when more great games come out..
2007 shots look simply amazing. Another quality ps3 exclusive on its way and I love it!
ps. there's now motion blur - and there wasn't in the "first build"
Looking very good.
surpassed by the actual game. Anyone curious about what Motorstorm 2 will look like? =]
Everyone knows that game will look gorgeous and I hope it comes out sometime next year or early 2009.
Motorstorm 2 should look great when they get it all sorted out, and with updated Havok the physics stuff should really be over the top.
I prefer moss growing on rocks and walls since the environment is a ruin in a jungle. The developers said they don't want it to look too real. Beside that the ingame does look better with everything else.
There is moss and plants growing on the walls...ever think that maybe you're looking at a different wall?
ps. last pic is just to show how great drake looks in game. Drake ingame = drake cutscene.
Looks a lot better now! Cant wait.
that actually overcome their target renders while others release game that haven't.
this is leaps and bounds over the 2006. i cant believe how sony's first party is delivering on target renders from the past. i so remember marts cliche and most famous quote... "Sony and it's CGI lies" and then we look at the cgi comparison to the hs 2005 and hs 2007 screens and videos. and then we have killzone2 which matched it's 2005 and then some. fight night round 3. motorstorm.. who came freakin close. and lair who's 2007 screens made it's 05 presentation look laughable. and now naughty dog is showing out it's 2006 presentation just a year ago and now look. and let's add some 3rd party devs in there like Kojima san who's made MGS4 look just as good as it's initial showing from it's official 2005 TGS showing on running pre alpha PS3 dev kits. as tkonami was one of the first. and then capcom with it's DMC4 which actually showed comparable graphics from it's 05 tgs realtime pre alpha PS3 kits with it's 2007 showing at this years TGS.
"CGI lies" mart get over thy self really.
no longer can you hold that arguement. PS3 first party games are showing out xbox360 games and exclusive left and right. once third party devs like EA and ubisoft start getting grips of ps3 hardware like sony's First and second party, and they are, recent multiplatform games look neck to neck with 360 counter parts by the end of next year. games on ps3 will look better. and the first party titles will look miles ahead of everything.
The 2006 trailer and screenshots were real time:
Naughty Dog has said many times that they've trimmed down the graphics for a more cartoony adventurous feel.
wow thats pretty awesome... it looks like 1000x better now
He is a bit of a Uncharted fan.. how can u resist =)
Oh wait, were not in a Halo 3 article so I guess I can't say that.
Looks very good and I can't wait for this holiday!
amazing! it looks way more crisp than the 2006 build
If this game plays half as good as it looks it will be a AAA, 10/10, blockbuster, hell of a game. And a first day buy for me. Also images like that are what make the PS3 worth $600.00 in my book, and the system keeps getting cheaper. If you have a PS3 smart move, if you dont then you should probably get one very soon :)
i think you are forgetting that this is a ps3 game and no matter how it looks or plays, it will get -2 points just for being on the platform
yeah I know, or minus a point because it doesn't have online play... lol
anyone know the technical aspects of this game? such as how many spu's it's using, or whether it utilizes cell+rsx combo? just curious.
and i find it unbelievable that ps3 is only 10 months old and it's already producing such work of art. The future looks bright indeed.
Looks pretty amazing. Some parts even photo realistic. Although I didn't mind the more animated look of 2006, the realistic approach works wonders for this game. Definitely gonna buy this game when it comes out.
No bets on the type of member who pressed DISAGREE on every single comment here. That bought an even bigger smile to my face
Title of my coment says it all..
THE PRESENT FOOTAGE LOOKS BETTER THEN THE PRERENDERD GAME
but way more realistic than previous build,should be fun nonetheless
round of applause
looks about the same to me but clearer.
cant wait for this game, its gonna rock!!
naughty dog, you should be knighted for your service, thx for another great AAA game on ps3
Looking great, I've had mine ordered on Amazon for weeks now. After some of the latest previews said that the gameplay had been tweaked and was coming together as well as the graphics... looks like it's finally going to be the game that everyone should be able to agree is AAA on the ps3.
BTW, is it just my imagination or did someone go through and click disagree on every post through about 27?
Yep, your not seeing things. Some people actually get a kick out of using the disagree button. No joke...
"lol, I disagreed. That'll really stick it to Sony!"
I like the 2006 version better looks much brighter and colorful.
looks great, cant wait for this, i loved how heavenly sword looked, ill especially love this
Sorry Xbots but there's no contest here, the graphics in this game is by far and away superior to anything the 360 has shown so far and that includes Gears of war, and it's only its first year, and I know you lot will make a futile attempt to dispute that, but you'll only end up making fools of yourselves, you lot asked for Sony to prove it's the superior machine (even though you Xbots are too embarrassed to admit it)and it has just done that as you lot witness this was no pre rendered CGI or PC but PS3 itself and thats the results you get without b*thcing about how hard it is to develop for. And thats the difference with a console (360) that can upscale 1080p and a true 1080/24p console(PS3).
why can't you just end it at that. Why do you have to go and flame. Your just as bad or worse than opposing fanboys. I do like the games artsy look a lil' bit better then this more realistic look because i don't want all games striving for the same ultra-realistic look. Developers shouldn't fear that if they don't make their games look realistic that people are not going to buy them. That's kinda the whole point behind videogames, an escape from reality and the Norms. If all games try to make only realistic games, then that will just make the game industry look plain and the same, i like companies that charge a different path. Like the company that made Psychonauts (awesome game, by the way.) And I always respected NaughtyDog for their ambitious and creative games.
Game looks like it's going to be awesome, i might have to go and get a PS3 when this comes out. Hopefully it's at a more competitive price by then because i'm not known for my patience when it comes to things i want, and i really don't want to shell out so much. (Sigh!) But if it can't be helped, then it can't be helped.
I understand what you are saying, believe you me, sometimes i get frustrated when i come to this site, and see the childish bickery that goes on between fanboys, but when you choose to do the same is when you have lowered yourself to their level. I have not found any information that supports alot of PS3 fanboys claims that the 360 can only upscale to 1080. Especially since games like Virtual Tennis from Sega are natively 1080p. I find that to be quite the contrary, but like i said before, i do understand what your saying.
I'm only responding to those idiots who tried in everyway to bash Sony with weak and unfounded facts so I was giving them a taste of their own medicine, they had it in for Sony from the beginning(even before PS3 made it's debut and has been criticizing anything and everything the PS3 does. And I've been observing this since Nov 06. True some of the failings was Sonys fault but the media, game critics and xbots in this forum wanted to see Sony fall on it's sword (they failed to do that with PS2). I'm not having a go at general gamers who own 360 because if they enjoy the games on it then who am I to argue otherwise. It is those who are anti Sony oppotunist who make up stories of how terrible the PS3 is and know nothing about how the cell works even though they make assumptions (for your information it was jointly developed by Sony, Toshiba & IBM)and now that Sony has finally shown whats it capable of doing it is those culprits I'm laying into backed up with facts for all to see. And as for flame war they started it in the first place.
