SWEET! A "true" survival horror game. I'm glad that the two characters were actually trying to get away from those things rather than going "Rambo" and facing them with Shotguns and Gatling guns like most so called survival horror games do lol. Naughty Dog, work your magic.

Only mad people can come up with such awesome stuff and by mad, I mean mind blowing, extra ordinary team of extremely smart people! I can't believe PS3 can pull them kinda graphics. This trailer easily surpassed Uncharted 3 when it comes to graphics and pure quality. And surpassing Uncharted 3 is NOT an easy feat my friends. I have NEVER been this hyped about a new game because even as it is right now, it is screaming pure quality. ND should be officially crowned as the best devs on this planet!

It's not horror. It's survival.
Blogz4Fanboyz  +   1519d ago
now that looked really good. co-op confirmed as well??
RedDead  +   1519d ago
It's survival action whatever that means, horror isn't mentioned anywhere, so we can assume they ain't trying to make a scary game. Unless you have a fear of the infected. Compare it to a normal zombie action game, then add survival elements?

And Binarymind/ This is in engine, not in game, cutscenes in Uncharted look a good bit better than gameplay, and the trailers looked alot better than the final game(cutscene's included). So we can assume this will be a minor upgrade to U3's graphics.

Someone please explain to me why we need new consoles next year if games look this amazing?
BuffMordecai  +   1519d ago
Just so we can have even more amazing games, not that I'm in any rush. If developers can make this now, imagine what they can make with future tech.

I know. Their are so many exclusives and multi-platform games coming out in 2012 why would you need a new console?
SuperM  +   1519d ago
Sadly only amazing developers like Naughty Dog manage to pull of these kinds of graphics. We may not need new consoles yet but in 2 years its about time.
hesido  +   1519d ago
This is why I'll be waiting for PS4 slim. These games will make the waiting much more easier.
zeeshan  +   1519d ago
Why I tell you why mister :)

See if the devs can do THIS with the current-gen consoles that can be easily called as OUTDATED tech, then IMAGINE what they can achieve when they receive new toys and dev kits from Sony and M$. No really, they'll make us shit our pants come next gen :D

TheLog  +   1519d ago

I would finally buy a PS3 for this game. First i must see a real gameplay video to see if the quality is close to the trailer and then make sure its not an 8 to 10 hour game.

Bathyj  +   1519d ago
So what if it is an 8 or 10 hour game? 90% of games this gen are 8 or 10 hours and weve had some great games.

Would it neccessarily be better if it were 20 hours?
Neko_Mega  +   1519d ago
Skyrim isn't 8 to 10 hours long, most games that are build on looking real are short and the ones that aren't.

Well they get long hours of gameplay, Disgaea does that.
cochise313  +   1519d ago
If you haven't bought a ps3 by now then you're either a fanboy or don't like good games.
Halochampian  +   1518d ago

can be said about any console...
TheLog  +   1519d ago
Would it neccessarily be better if it were 20 hours?

It would just mean that this game is worth my $60. If not i will wait till it goes down to half price and if there is no replayability i'll just rent it for 2 days.

I somewhat agree with you. Unfortunately, I'm not able to throw my cash around.. I either rent or buy when $20-30 games that are 8-10 hours long with no MP. It sucks cause the awesome devs deserve awesome sales

Rainstorm81  +   1519d ago
Im just hoping for a M rating
colonel179  +   1519d ago
I just hope is not in 3D... I don't want it to suffer technically because of it.
blumatt  +   1519d ago
I wouldn't say that 3D would necessarily make it suffer technically. Uncharted 3 was 3D-capable, yet had amazing graphics still.

Though I couldn't care either way, I think that the fact that Sony adding 3D support to a lot of its games is a great idea. I'm sure that next generation, there will be even more games with 3D support. It might even be standard on all games by then.

I hope it is in 3d, the 3d in Uncharted 3 is fantastic!
evilunklebud  +   1519d ago
No 3d please.......
colonel179  +   1519d ago
3D is fine, but Uncharted took a heavy hit because go it. Just look at the pictures from E3 trailer compared to the final game. (There was a story about it here). Then, when the game is in 3D, although impressive, it takes another hit.

That is why I wouldn't like the game to be in 3D. It is unlikely though.
yogaflame  +   1519d ago
I want 3d wherte you can see body parts flying and blood
Chitown71291  +   1519d ago
Guys I own an LG 3D (since black friday lol) , and Uncharted 3 looks phenomenal! Played a KillZone 3 demo too.......CRAZY Bullets and snow flies right to you. It truly is something you have to experience.....I hope its in 3D personally
N311V  +   1519d ago
3D gaming is amazing, once it's been experienced 2D just feels... well... flat.
PshycoNinja  +   1519d ago
Judging by the trailer... I think that's almost a sure thing.

The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Abandoned cities are being reclaimed by nature and the remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.

Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1519d ago
As much as I think this will be a good game, I was really hoping for something new that wasn't a shooting game. I'm really getting tired of them. But hey, whaT can ya do.

Who said this was purely a shooter? If anything it will probably feature more survival judging by the atmosphere in the trailer.....well hopefully it will.

Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1519d ago
Yea I was thinking it would be but I really want more fantasy games or a game that sites something completely new. This might do that but right now I'm a bit skeptical.
BinaryMind  +   1519d ago
I would love something different too, but you're going to be hard pressed to find many games these days that manage to sell more than a million copies without any guns in the game. This game seems to have potential to actually push the stagnant zombie genre forward.

I'm just glad to be getting another Naughty Dog game so soon.

And notice in the trailer the girl gets excited over two bullets, I'd say ammo will be very rare.
WhiteLightning  +   1519d ago
SO she's a teenage girl....


Children/Teenagers in games always come off as annoying brats, I hope we don't play her............she'll never have the same appeal as Elena Fisher or Chole Fraizer and I'm talking about personality and character.........not looks
yoshiroaka  +   1519d ago
At least she doesnt look like one of those whiny characters who are like "no we cant kill them! they are still human!"

She actually kicks some ass.
WhiteLightning  +   1519d ago
Hopefully....because those types of characters ruin a game
yoshiroaka  +   1519d ago
Yes they do :/ They ruin many movies and tv show too :(

But i trust in Naughty Dog to write good characters. Hoping for the best!
TreMillz  +   1519d ago
well her description says shes mature beyond her age
ElementX  +   1519d ago
That's so cliche
nefertis  +   1519d ago
Im getting that res4 vibe from this game, thats a plus to me.
Game4life  +   1519d ago
when i first heard the music i thought of resident evil 4
I'm thinking the rebirth of Survival horror/action
mechlord  +   1519d ago
this is no jrpg so no. the teenager wont be a whiny one.
tarbis  +   1519d ago
She looks more useful than your typical teenager. And the fact that she's smarter than her age gives us something to look forward to.
tiffac008  +   1518d ago
Basing by the trailer she probably grew up in that environment because she did mention that she only heard about the streets being filled with people and not plants (or whatever you call them infected things) from what the guy with her.

This is also ND we are talking about here I can't remember them making any whiney and unappealing characters.

MRMagoo123  +   1519d ago
OMG its like i am legend which i love, the trailer has me hyped.
doctorstrange  +   1519d ago
Yeah, got the same feeling. Can't wait.
smashcrashbash  +   1519d ago
If it were anyone else I would say it was just another plague/zombie game. But from ND I am certain it will be an experience that I won't soon forget. Jak and Daxter and UC already left their mark on my gamer heart and I bet this game will too.

I already like the fact that everyone else besides our protagonists don't seem to give a $hit about each other. From what I have heard so far it looks like you will be fighting off not only what ever those misshapen things are but normal people as well. In most games and movies the remaining people usually band together to help each other. But it looks like people have adapted the 'every man for himself' policy instead. I look forward to hearing more

BuffMordecai  +   1519d ago
They're too busy trying to figure out more ways to beat a dead horse. And by beating, I mean milking the ever living crap out of their franchises.

unicron7  +   1518d ago
LOL I thought the same thing. Resident Evil has been ruined...and now this is on the horizon. Maybe they will play it and take notes on how to improve the genre?
FelicityOldGamer  +   1518d ago
Totally agree!!! HAHAHAAAH!!! Thats what a Resident Evil should be in this gen...
thornh  +   1519d ago
Based on the clue from UC3 this obviously happens in Drake's world in the near to mid-term future. Was UC3 the last we'll see of Drake? Is the girl his daughter? Will Drake be in this game?

Thanks ND for getting me excited about 2012. I'd laugh, but wouldn't doubt, if the game is released on 12/21/2012...
cjflora  +   1519d ago
I personally think that the clue in UC3 was just that. A clue. It was them having fun with hinting at their new IP. That's what I think anyway. I doubt this will be in any way related to the Uncharted serious other than possibly throwing in little hints like the one they did in UC3 or something.
yogaflame  +   1519d ago
I hope its like Skyrim or GTA where it is an open world, a sandbox type of game. This is the reason why we dont need ps4 yet because ps3 still has lots of power and we still have allot of great games to come next year like this game, FFversus13, last guardian, bioshock, etc. I hope too finally see a survival horror game where you can use vehicles like tanks, jeep, helicopter, etc. to kill monster and zombies. hehehe

I doubt it will be, Naughty Dog have shown us that (thankfully) story is an integral part of their games. Something that is difficult to control in open world games as pacing is up to the player not the game director.
tarbis  +   1519d ago
well, you'll never know, there's always a first time for everything. But the game looks like it's gonna be open world. I hope....

Strongly disagree,

After today there is a reason for buying a PS3. :)

I would love to buy this, only if this is not a 8 to 10 hour game. I just love the genre. Comon Sony with all the power of Blu Ray make this a 20+ hour game.
unicron7  +   1518d ago
Sounds like a lame excuse to not buy it if you ask me. Longer doesn't mean better. If you haven't bought one yet, you're not gonna buy one...and that's a shame. The Uncharted franchise alone warrants a purchase, not to mention all the other content.

xtreampro  +   1519d ago
I'm definitely going to get this but it better look like that in-game, Uncharted 3 literally looks worse than it's reveal trailer and it was really noticeable throughout my entire playthrough (but the boat yard gameplay looks the best to me.

I hope this is exactly how the game looks with no changes.
CDzNutts  +   1518d ago
Wow, really?

Uncharted 3 looked noticeably better than 1 and 2...but I'm also running my PS3 on an expensive HDTV.

I know that the display can greatly affect a game's visual experience (a la display TV's for all 3 consoles at Walmart)
xtreampro  +   1518d ago
Yeah the lighting looked better and I personally think the ship yard gameplay was the best looking part in the whole series, but that doesn't mean it wasn't downgraded.

I did a comparison myself of the first cut-scene in the desert between the reveal trailer and the actual game and the reveal trailer was miles ahead. The texture quality and lighting was almost like CGI in the reveal trailer.

Even before the comparison I felt really uneasy about the graphics during my first playthrough because it didn't have that same wow factor as the trailer.

I just hope they don't pull the same stunt with this.
Rettom  +   1519d ago

too bad its not coming out on December 13rd, 2011

DAAAAAAMN...the long wait begins.

But this is good news for Capcom. If Dead Space, Dead Island and all others didnt function as a wake up call, this surely will do. Resi6 isnt even out (they gotta be rushing to the drawing table after this) and its already looking obsolete
