NowGamer: "Speaking exclusively with Play Magazine, Lead Designer on Uncharted 3 predicts the best is yet to come for PS3. PlayStation 3 will be 'put to jaw-dropping use in the next few years', Naughty Dog's Richard Lemarchand has told Play..."
Naughty Dog got bigger plans have they? They're truly a great studio. Lets give the dog a bone
They're definitely one of the *ahem* big dogs of the industry. Always interested to see what they're up to.
They're definitely *ahem* The alpha dogs....:D
That's why we call them the Naughty Godz because they are the Gods of game development.
leaders of the pack for sure
Well, ignoring this asshole above me. Remember that God of War 2 came out nearly 8 years into the PS2 life cycle. I have no doubt that some other game will blow us all away even more than Uncharted 3 by the time 2013 hits. It may be from Naughty Dog, it may be from Rockstar, who knows? All I know is that new consoles are not necessary at this point in time. Sure they aren't as powerful as a few computers out there, but that has always been the case for consoles. They are not competing with the PC platform, so there is no need to try and surpass them. You PC only gamers think graphics are everything, well when you get games with such amazing stories like Metal Gear and Uncharted, then you can start talking. The fact is, when you own a PS3, you get nearly everything available to you, something to fit everyones taste.
From anyone else, I'd be skeptical. But if ND says it, then I believe them. No one has tapped the PS3 like ND. I'm loving this gen.
@Whitenoise I'm sure the ladies love you. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
"Remember that God of War 2 came out nearly 8 years into the PS2 life cycle." No, it was a little over 6 years. PS2 released in late 2000, GOW2 released in early 2007.
Generally speaking, if you look back at previous console generations. The best games visually have been at or near the final run of the systems. It is by then that they have things figured out and developers know what they can and cant do. There are several great games on all the older platforms that seemed to rival even some that were coming out on the next gen system at the time. What ND is saying is true. We are not only going to see the best that PS3 can offer but also the 360 and quite possibly the Wii. Uncharted 3 looks amazing right now just as Gears 3 (even in multiplayer beta) looks better than the first when it came out over 5 years ago. Its the same hardware running those games as it was running Uncharted 1 and gears 1. The developers just get better at understanding how these things work.
lol ND must believe in fairies and the easter bunny also. no amount of wishful thinking is going to change the memory limitations of the ps3. unless he meant jaw dropping one way hallway with a fixed camera...I can see that happening. The DLC could be a right turn or maybe a fork in the hallway where you get to choose your path!
@darthv72 You can't really compare gears to uncharted cause gears has not had big jumps like uncharted has. I would compare gears changes to a game like COD (small tweaks)
Evrfighter, even uncharted2 is jaw dropping, especially for a xbox fan like you who don't have a single game close to that. @you are right "the best player", everybody knows that gears is close to the first one, when uncharted, 2, and 3 are a real big jump...but it's logicaln everyone knows that ps3 is harder to deal with, but much more powerfull (especially the cpu).
To hear a PC gamer call someone a narrow minded fool is beyond ironic. PC elitists discuss me. Yourself included WhiteNoise. I look forward to seeing what ND do in the future. Who knows what will happen.
Fanboys from every platform should STFU about pixels and stop getting boners over pixels./rant If the game has a fun co-op experience like Uncharted 2 I will be happy and enjoy it. Hopefully it is four people in Uncharted 3 than three in Uncharted 2 and more Survival modes, Siege was fun.
Naughty dog are amazing developers crash was first psone game I played an absolutely loved the others. Jak and Daxter is also a awesome series I love all three. Uncharted well that is my favorite franchise an game character in Nathan Drake.
Good to know that theirs still much planned for the PS3 in the coming years. Mine will be ready, waiting for whatever catches my eye!
the PS3 has more life to it just as planned. I will never trade it for any other console. PS3 graphics put a smile in my face every time I turn it on on my 46" TV.
"In the next few years" is not "In a few years"
A new IP would be nice. Save Uncharted 4 for the PS4.
Hell yeah could you imagine an Uncharted 4 bundle at the launch of the PS4 it would be EPIC and I'll be camping at EB's midnight launch for that.:)
WAIT WHAT?!! :O you mean after uncharted 2 i have to pick my jaw up and wait for it to drop again?! cant wait for this to happen. their games are most probably the top of the industry.
Same as with the PS2. In the last couple of years prior to the PS3 release, some of the most creative games of all time came out on the PS2. I still think the PS4 is coming in early 2013, but the PS3 will be in the midst of its own renaissance when it does. We're going to see some amazing stuff in the next 2-3 years on the PS3.
Next gen consoles will be around soon.. real soon
Yes, but at least in Sony's case, the PS3 will live on. Some of the coolest PS2 games came out right before and even after the PS3 hit the market. Hopefully Microsoft takes a page from the Sony playbook this time, and doesn't throw the 360 in the trash like they did to the original Xbox.
I have a feeling Microsoft and Nintendo will both drop the current gen consoles like bad habits when their next console arrives. :(
In Naughty Dog We Trust
I always trust ND to deliver fantastic titles. I am glad they are first party though because they can concentrate on the PS3s hardware.
sorry double post i dunno how far they can push the ps3, I think most developers just want some new hardware to work with
the power teh cell
Naughty dog are best developers in the world
Yeah it's all a cool devs with all the fancy graphics and solid story but that's it.. gameplay wise I never got "caught" in the intensity of it's action. For me props goes to Platinum games for bayonetta, or Valve for Half-Life 2 ( best game ever)
game play wise even Cliffy B of Gears 3 bows down to ND & Uncharted 2's cover system. In U2 they have nailed the game play department first and graphics are just icing on the cake. and speaking of Platinum Vanquish by Mikami-san (awesome cover system) should come to this line of talk not Bayonetta.
In Naughty Dog I believe! They have proven themselves with Uncharted 2 to be able to push stuff further than anyone else at that point in time. I hope they're able to do this again with Uncharted 3, can't wait to have the game in my hands and in my PS3 drive. I wouldn't mind Uncharted 4 in the final days of the PS3 around fall/Christmas 2013 just before the PS4 and 720 release at the end of 2013 or maybe Christmas 2014... One of the few franchises I can't get enough off, because you know Naughty Dog does their job well unlike some other devs that bring out pretty uninspired sequels, like how Killzone 3 by Guerilla is kind of meh after Killzone 2. You just know Naughty Dog won't take the easy route but will push stuff to the max!
cause i've had exchanges with you in the past and know you truly like the series, dont know if it'll help much
Agreed, same, I've had exchanges with mart in the past too. You deserve a bubble mart. Good for you
Wow...the Mart. We used to go at it back when PS3 launched. Was checking up on some of the ol' PS3 haters and I was surprised to see you actually gave the PS3 a chance, let alone are defending a PS3 game. Bubbles up!
When you see AGENT from Rockstar North, you will know what really this is all about!
That's 'IF' we see Agent. Who knows how late/early that game is in its dev stage
agent and a new syphon filter better be at E3!
yes if Agent not at E3 then its been cancel or put on hold.
Hopefully these comments will silence the whole "release PS4" talk for a while.
...the PS4 will be dropping in a few years as well. It's really hard to imagine what next-gen gaming will look/be like. I suppose the biggest difference...for consoles...will be the native graphical fidelity will be cranked up several notches, to match current high-end PC capabilities. No more 720p...or less, no more 20-30 fps on most games, no more screen tearing, and no more inconsistent AA. I know the PS3..and even the 360...have life left in them, with even a few surprises yet to come...but I'll still gladly plunk down another $400 in 2-3 years for all those improvements. Of course, I'm also assuming backwards compatibility will be a given...maybe even with resolution upgrades. But by then, I may not care about that...
Not sure why you're bubbled down or why you have disagrees, but well said! OT: I never expect anything other than greatness when Naughty Dog is involved! Bring on Uncharted 3!
i wonder if this might mean that they're going to make the long wanted jak and daxter 4, no the lost frontier didn't count. if that happened we could expect a ps2 hd remake collection. that'd be great.
God Of War 4 and MGS5( If exclusive) will put these claims into reality.
Naughty Dog gave me a lot of fun only with Uncharted series, only single player... no need more :) they are amazing :)
Bring us another masterpiece
I'm predicting ND will finish the Uncharted franchise on the ps3, and move on to a new IP on the Ps4. Makes sense since they did the same with Crash bandicoot on the Ps1 and Jak and Daxter on the ps2
I can't wait for UTR! Best cart racer this gen. I'm callin it right now. Mark my words!
truly amazing team. ND
like i keep telling you folks, I LOVE MY PS3.
"...but I'm sure that some of the new technologies we're developing will challenge us in new ways," Maybe they are developing for the PS4? Some people said some developers are already working with next gen systems. You never know......... you never know.
...And then people keep saying that we need a new generation of consoles.I love it when developers can push a console to it's limits,and until that limit is reached,then I'm fine with this gen of consoles.
Great to see they're squeezing the last bits of power from the PS3. Love the exclusives and the graphics. But remember the hardware in the PS3 such as the graphics processor is very old and slow. If it wasn't for the cell processor most of these amazing games such as KZ3, MGS4, GT5 and Uncharted 2 wouldn't have been possible. Was a very fast processor when it came out.
If this true then AWESOME news.If tha PS3 is only going to get better in tha next few YEARS why rush another PS in tha scene. Sony is already releasing a new console and its tha S1 and S2 tablets.I'm not in a rush for a new HOME console.PS3 have everything I want so would I want to stop playing with it.Hopefully Sony will released tha PS4 on tha 10th birthday of tha PS3.I think that would be a awesome way to start a new era. Also dont forget about tha NGP is coming soon.Ppl always talking about gimmie gimmie until it comes and you complain about tha price. Sony keep tha PS3 going as long as u can.Because I really really want a GTA:San Andreas 2 and 3.If you can produce 1000+ games for PS2.I want atleast 1500 on tha PS3. Also please hurry up with PSN I need my Socom 4 fix.SP is cool but im tried of tha AI kicking my ass.I need to own some noobs again so I can feel like a man again ;)
lol I been over this b4 u telling me using an "e" instead of a "a" is so damn important on tha internet.Wow didnt know I was looking for a job on N4G.
the internet... Thiar is a raason that I point this out. Not only is it vary annoying to read but If I just started substituting rondum lattars im oll mi wardz it suun bacumes hord tu unberztag. English. Do you speek it?
lol so reading a simple 3 letter word that have an "a'" instead of "e" is annoying.Dude how do you making through tha day.I bet u correct every1 u talk to then?
Naughty Dog brave to comment about SONY right now. Some devs might not wanna do that. From an extremist perspective.
It really looks like Sony is giving them a lot of space for developing games unlike any other first party developers...
this is only applicable to exclusive devs. third party multiplatform wont bother. Which is why im getting multiplats on 360 unless told otherwise, ive learned my lesson.
why can it be jaw dropping NOW....why wait a couple of years. This makes some of you people look like morons.
until you make something 1080p, you will not convince me there is anything left in either console, there is no juice left, sorry, the only way the dev's can cram more textures into games without making them a slideshow (less than the 20-30 frames per second console games already are) is to lower the resolution even more, as we have seen with games like alan wake at 540p splinter cell 576p all console call of duty games 600p crysis 2 640p and now, almost all games released on console seem to have ZERO anti aliasing, they are 90% of them covered in jaggies. so, no naughty dog, unless the are coming out with a ps3.2 we won't see anything jaw dropping, you games look awesome, very beautiful games, god of war 3 also by santi monica, beautiful, but honestly, technically there won't ever be anything better on that hardware admit it, make new consoles! Quit stalling just to milk more money out of people with your lame day one dlc, even the Devs are calling for new consoles!
Leave it to Naughty Dog's to kick some more a$$ with the other developers. I dont know why but they are just so AMAZING!
If the PS3 is truly that powerful still I'm honestly shocked and amazed. I don't think there is still that much left however. I get that they're trying to throw Sony a bone, but I think the bone they need now is one of actual support. When Unch:3 drops support it the best way you can, keep content coming. Don't talk about what you could be doing instead.
