Eurogamer writes: Excited as we are about the new beta, it's safe to say that from a basic technological level, the core rendering elements we see here aren't that far removed from what we saw in Uncharted 2.

Naughty Dog have done wonders optimising this engine! Major props to them!

Can't wait until the holiday season.

I hate to say this but the graphics of Uncharted 2's multiplayer look better than Uncharted 3's MP imo

I think it's the lack of anti-aliasing in U3's MP that's the biggest difference between the two. You can notice the jaggies on the lobby screen, around the character models.. as well as in-game, pretty horrible to be honest. Apart from the jaggies.. everything else is fine, so maybe graphics are better than U2 then, I don't know.

Singleplayer story is going to look 1000x better than the MP, of course.. but I really hope Naughty Dog can improve the graphics in terms of anti-aliasing for the MP component before the game's release later this year.

Well after looking at a comparison what I see is that the character models, animation, and level designs are all better in uc3 than in uc2. The thing that makes uc3 look bad is the textures on the characters clothes.

I dont know if i am the only one, but after hours of playing you stop looking at the jaggies and the graphics go to second priority.

It seems a lot of changes where made to accommodate the move to 3D. This might explain a lot of the technical differences that everyone is experiencing.

It is still 4 months away from launch day so there is still is time to optimize the performance.

I'm not a big 3D fan. It looks fantastic and when you see it in action really makes everything pop on screen but I just think we are a few years and a least another console cycle away from it running anywhere near optimized.

It's too bad that Sony is forcing ND, a Sony R&D company to implement this corporate strategy. It had a negative effect on KZ 3 as well and for what??? 3D might not even last and at this point is a gimmick. Very few people are buying 3D tv's let alone WANT to sit there for hours wearing glasses and developing eye problems...just read the disclaimer posted by Sony and Nintendo if you want the heads up.

btw...why is the co-op so off. I know it requires a lot of resources but it seems like such a drastic departure. Many devs are constantly talking about how they had to make HUGE sacrifices to the game to adopt these types of game play elements but it seems excessive...maybe the 3d is to blame.

I know Gears, Halo and few others are offering 4 player, story based co-op without such a drastic drop off??? Maybe this is why Naughty Dog has said it's time for a new engine built around these new features.

I was suprised that they were able to keep the exact same graphics for 2 screen as it is for 1 screen. Most of the time games have worse graphics in 2 player but this game is not the case.

I would have liked better AA for 1 player but it still looks better than every 360 game. Maybe story mode will have different AA.

The physics are also very good for UC3 and is amazing that they were able to get the moving plane, cars, graphics, and physics going on at the same time with a steady framerate.

Gears 3 has almost just as good graphics as UC2 but they dont have nearly as much physics going on or game characters climbing, jumping, etc...

Can't wait for this game, GOTY for sure. Naughty Dog ups their game again...
