I hope to see some MP action in E3.

It'll either be e3 or one of the other conferences later this year.

So no Uncharted Trilogy ? Unless its being outsorced.
I got a PS4 to play Uncharted 4 so its all good.

If they were making an Uncharted remaster I would assume its by another team.

A collection could be handled by a small part of the studio.
I'm pretty sure it was stated that it was all hands on deck before The Last of Us remastered got announced, but some of Naughty Dog's staff worked on that.
Maybe a combined effort of some of ND working with outside sources to remaster the collection.

I hope that if it's a real thing that the games are brought up to par with something like TLOU.
ND will have all of the new assets they've made for Uncharted 4, which could be used for the older games.
A lot of other assets would have to be remade to match that quality.

I guess we'll maybe find out about it soon if it's real.

Yea most likely a trilogy would be outsourced but who knows they could be lying about only working on U4.

I'm hoping this game don't come out around the same time as Zelda U cause I really wanna pick this up day one

Whenever there's a post on N4G regarding Naughty Dog and their upcoming Uncharted 4, you always hear words like "technical wizardry" or something. Frankly, I think it's a bit pretentious and subjective.

Now, don't get me wrong, the things they're doing are impressive, everything from the littlest details like tangible chest hair; however, you don't hear people praising other developers who are doing things just as impressive, if not, more impressive than ND.

Exactly. They need to show some better lighting. All they've shown of Uncharted 4 so far is overcast, gloomy, dim, and dull looking that makes me think that's a limitation of using their last-gen engine for UC4... yet many act as if the graphics are amazing, as if simulated chest hair physics is more amazeballs than better lighting.

I think another problem with the gameplay they've shown so far is it being mostly forest (caves looked really dull and monotonous lit too). Although I don't think The Last of Us has the best lighting, it still looks good (especially for last-gen), though I think what makes it look good is the variation of city scenes... I think forest scenes look dull when rendered similarly.

Nature scenes often look boring, especially without good lighting and with gloomy weather (Fable Legends has excellent nature scene rendering). They need amazeballs lighting, such as Fable Legends or Battlefront uses in their forest scenes, to really make Naughty Dog look as if they're top developers rather than has beens using outdated last-gen techniques.

Uncharted 4 is supposed to be Sony's most anticipated title from the developer that Sony fans claim is the best in the world. I think it will deserve faulting if it doesn't look at least as good as 3rd party titles, such as Battlefront.

I think Naughty Dog made a mistake not going with a next-gen engine and more next-gen rendering techniques. They claim they made the mistake last-gen of rebuilding their engine for movie quality graphics then thinking that it wasn't worth it... they then didn't do that this gen, even though I think this gen is when it is worth it. Here's quotes where they describe that,
