Check out the first screenshot of Sony's new PS3 exclusive, The Last of Us.
Damn, that screen looks insane.
It does look good, do you think it's real-time?
I'm hoping it is. :D
The VGA trailer is going to be gameplay apparently, plus the textures on the leaf are somewhat jaggy, not perfect like a bullshot would be... might be the real deal.
wouldn't be surprised if it was from the news paper looks like it'll be about some sort of virus. England declares martial law and the quarantine fails in new mexico I. want more
Fyi, there is a theme available in the psn store for download.
Wow, I'm stunned. Looks like its gonna be about some sort of infection according to this: http://www.lastofus.com/wal... PLEASE SONY, let this game be a survival emotional game or something.
This is %100 a Quntanic Dream production. The images dont lie. For those of you saying EPIC please stop it - the unreal engine is not capable of producing slim fine images and only does thick stuff. see Gear newspaper http://www.supercheats.com/... Half Life newspaper http://images3.wikia.nocook... Heavy Rain Newspaper http://www.psuni.com/wp-con... Resistance Newspaper http://www.videogamesblogge...

Damn those look good. Nice when you don't hear about a new IP until it's not too far away.
By the Gods, I demand this game to be shown NOW!
Sony's gotten smarter as of late and usually provides gameplay footage of their games instead of pre-rendered. E3 is proof of that. Hopefully, like you guys said, this is gameplay footage like usual.
I dont know if any of you keep up with this illuminati stuff, but theres thing about population stabilization and what not and with the president on the front cover first thing came to my mind was corrupt government tried to stabilze the population but the virus got out of control. Cant wait to see what its actually about
Who are the revs behind this? GG?
This game definitely isn't going for realism, the newspaper dispenser says, 'made in America'.
This might be a stupid question but why haven't anyone thought of a Fallout game??????????????? Or Left 4 Dead????????????
@ Micro_Sony I was thinking the same. Look at the HEAVY RAIN textures and graphics. The models look of a very similar nature. QUANTIC DREAM being behind this is VERY likely! A zombie/infected game with actual emotional storytelling? Knowing that, I can't wait! =D
The image isn't real time. This reminds me so much of the original Halo Reach bullshots ( http://xbox360media.ign.com... ); A ridiculously high resolution and no jaggies whatsoever. I mean, are people REALLY still falling for bullshots? It must be REALLY disappointing to actually play a console game you apparently thought would have 16xAA and a resolution higher than the consumer TV can display.
Sony does it again. If Uncharted 3 is any example of how FAR the ps3 can be pushed, then I have no doubt that screen is real time. This setting up to be something awesome.
''Sony does it again.'' Oh settle down for gods sake you haven't seen any gameplay yet you fool.
Okay, so Sony is doing an excellent job with the marketing aspect of this reveal. Assuming the reveal itself lives up to the level to which it's being hyped, then it will be a complete success. However, don't congratulate Sony for crafting something which looks pretty; such an action is similar to thanking Samsung after you watch Inception on your plasma TV.
Only it's not. It's definitely in engine of course: you can see that from the leaf textures. But it's a supersampled shot with max LOD: just like we see in almost every PR shots in todays games.
I've really gotta hand it to them, they're teasing this *just* right. I'm intrigued but not annoyed. It's perfect. Will be crossing my fingers that it remains something I'll be interested in after the big reveal.

If those are ingame graphics I'll...I'll... GOD DAMN!!!
Omg the detail in the broken glass!
It's got to be something to do with a virus because, the link SuperM posted has a image of a news paper which at the bottom says 'The president addresses a panicked nation as millions more are feared dead or infected' Damn I didn't see yellow13 beat me to it.
Holly S***! They did it? they finally did it!? a Survival Horror game developed by SCE, OMG! can't wait for it, I'm so hyped now!!!
But this isn't being touted as a "screenshot" like the latest image. That image has been around for a while.
has to be new Quantic Dream game, I can smell QD vibe in it - something refreshing with great storyline, just like Heavy Rain
direct link: http://www.lastofus.com/wal... This is crazy:) can't wait. The website now says "12.10.2011" ;) [EDIT] O_O is that.... Is that Obama in the second picture [in the article]
yeah it looks like him but they cut the rest of the face out i guess to stay away from legal matters
My post was spam? lol
is that in game?
Looks in-game to me
Lol its funny how all the comments above are saying its in game, no one knows if its in game yet it could be CGI you never know. Its also funny when Halo: Reach VGA trailer was first shown ps3 owners automatically said it was in CGI yet it was using in game engine.
I wonder if this will turn out to be the survival horror game that cliffy b wanted to make so bad after gears of war triology was finished.
Seriously, who the hell is developing this? Man, just bring on Saturday!
Most popular guesses range from Sony Santa Monica, to Quantic Dreams, to more possibilities like Epic Games.
would Epic games make a PS3 exclusive? Maybe multiplatform, but an excclusive is a stretch :p im hoping it's quantic dream. I just finished heavy rain over the weekend and i thought it was amazing. It was cinematic and moving, which is what i'd like from a apocalyptic game (and believe is needed).
GG were reportedly working on a new title a few years back, heres proof. http://www.joystiq.com/2010...
It's not Epic. I guaran-freaking-tee it's not Epic. None of this...not the graphics in the shots, nor how this is being revealed...is their style at all. My money is on Quantic Dream, given their known grasp of cutting edge graphics on the PS3. There's a reason why they're the most popular guess.
at first i stated that i was going to pull the wild card here and say it was epic, im now retracting that statement... UE3 cant pull graphics like that screenshot of that forest.... I'll eat my heart out if it did.... Im guessing Quantic Dream...
Quantic Dream. I haven't played Heavy Rain (I want to), but this game will be so amazing if it's made by them. I gasped when I read, "Im guessing Quantic Dream...", because how AMAZING WOULD THAT BEEEEEE! @Ethereal That's a good point, damn it. and an opinion article http://geekrevolt.com/2011/...
I think the made in America on the last screen kinda hints a US based dev.
Man that clicking sound of the zombie (I presume that's the zombie at least) is so f'ing creepy. Sound design is such an important detail in horror games. Sounds like they might be getting it right. Hopefully at the end of the day we get a survial horror game that's a mix of Silent Hill 1-4, Amnesia, and Resident Evil 4.
That clicking sounds makes me think of giant insects. Insects took over the world? Would be awesome.
I was thinking the same thing about how it sounded like an insect. Made me think of an anime called Blue Gender, where insect like creatures took over ther planet.
I think you are right!
damn, i want more screens asap!. this looks great!
the newspaper reads" The president addresses a panicked nation as millions more are feared dead or infected" So the game is definitely about infectious fungi.
The newspaper also has a quote on the picture but I can't read it clearly. It looks like: "Our union remains strong. The military is making large gains and securing additional Quarantine Zones. This (is?) our turning point. We (can?) not and will not become the last of us. Mankind will prevail." Quarantine Zones is capitalized so maybe there's something special about that. MANKIND WILL PREVAIL!!!!
http://www.relyonhorror.com... There's a transcript of the legible text at the bottom of the article.
And below it it also says "Texas,new Mexico quarantine fail" and beside that "England latest to declare martial law" which mean the military is going in to destroy the virus. I can't wait a survival horror game from Sony that is a global epidemic.
btw the us playstation blog has the same screenshot as background layout on their page
Read the news paper SPOILER ALERT It's about a world wide infection that's killing off man kind. In the paper Mexico and England were hit by it. XperiaRay
How does that qualify as a spoiler?
is it bird flu?
Chickity China the Chinese chicken have a drum stick and your brain stops ticking. XperiaRay
That extended version of the 'Ant' version is creeeepy :o Getting an 'I Am Legend' sense to it! HYPE! Can't wait for this to be revealed at VGAS! Also read the text in the second image!!! http://www.lastofus.com/wal... Definitely a survival game! Apocalypse game! "England declare martial law", "Quarantine in New Mexico fails", "The last of the Human Kind will prevail", "Millions more are feared dead or infected"...(also Obama in the picture!) etc etc etc!!! #excited :)
Can I say PS4? If that screenshot is in-game and from the PS3........ I will shit my pants and eat my shit.
You can say PS4 but you'd be wrong:) Holy shit I can read some of the other text using my phone but I won't be able to write it down fast enough, somebody get on it please!!
lol one guy, one pants ?
Would this be one cup, or half a cup? Or are his pants the cup? This is vexing me.
We don't want to see that.
Absolutely peaked right about now. There's no way this game can be as good as Geoff is making it out to be.... can it?
Whatever game studio is making this Says, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED
what could this be. i mean what is that clicking sound that someone seems to be clicking or rotating. then there is a monster of some sort and people screaming on the extended ant video. could you be playing as a guy who is leading other people around the devastation and you have to make sure none of the people die off and if they do die the game changes up the story any other ideas people come on get those brains working.
I have a few theories. 1. It could be the sound that the zombies make. Notice how it's a distant clicking sound then becomes clearer and clearer. Finally you hear the zombie scream. I'm thinking cloverfield aliens, then sterotypical zombies 2. It sort of sounds like the clicking sound of a old generator. 3. It also sounds like the clicking sound of a motorcycle that's stalling..
