Worthplaying has some screenshots from Naughty Dog's new game Uncharted : Drake's Fortune.  With this and Ratchet & Clank Future, all we need now is Sly Cooper 4.

Can't wait.  This and Ratchet & Clank pretty much guarantee I'll have a PS3 by the end of this year.

It looks absolutely awesome. I do kinda feel like this and some other big, big names are going to slip to early 08 though. As for me, I will own a PS3 again after the first price cut.

It also looks like the main character has a romance with one of the bad guys - here they are dancing  icon_biggrin

Kotaku has some videos up too, this could be the true killer-app for the PS3, screw MGS 4 and FFXIII. Well, actually it was the main reason I bought the PS3.

if everything else didn't sell you on this game, this video will. I don't know if it will push 100's of thousands of PS3's but it is definitely a feather in the system's cap, and will a great game to point to to partly justify the price.

well, at the rate I'm finding exclusives that I want to get I'm sure there will be one well before 5 of them are actually released.

I love the Indiana Jones vibe, but do worry a bit about how much of the game is shooting sequences. I get why they would show those a lot in trailers, but it makes it look like they make up most of the gameplay. I'm hoping for a really healthy puzzle-solving component.

The developer stated that it's going to be puzzle-light...focused more on their platforming/shooting/physical combat (the 3 things they are stressing) stuff.

It looks better than the Gears of War AI.  slywink

AI isn't worked on last, but it's usually the last system to really look good.  Game AI is a very difficult thing to pull off well.

Anyone else think the screenshots for this game are misrepresenting this game's graphics.  Many of the screenshots I see are way too bright and it washes out the game's graphics.

What I really like about this is that it has Gears of War's combat without the baggage of being "hardcore" along with Tomb Raider/Prince of Persia's adventure and exploration.

Yeah, but there was some really piss poor screenshots floating around the net that were just plain washed out, I have no idea how those shots got through quality control because the game looks amazing.

You seem to be expecting alot of games to be delayed lately.  Do you have an inside track or has the bitterness of not being ATB finally crushed your soul and turned you into a pessimist?  icon_wink

Thread resurrection!  I was watching some making of videos for Uncharted, and it still looks great.

But I spotted an interesting fact.  The music for the game is done by the same guy that did Firefly, and after getting that info, I started hearing some of that guy's signature composing.  Namely using less known instruments or common instruments in weird ways.

They changed the lead female from black short hair to messy blond, kind of liked her with black hair.  Too many blonds on screen. Tongue  Her voice and mocap actress acts well and has this cool smokey voice.

From the videos it looks like the aiming and weapon damage issues have been tweaked, have to wait for the demo or full game to see if they resolved it.

Don't forget the Gears of War style cover combat elements.

Copying tomb raider, the latest one anyway, isn't a bad thing considering it's a very good game.  Then adding in some nice combat elements lifted from gears, fortunately without the enemies that can take whole clips of ammo and still stay standing.  They've also been working on the melee system so it has a bit of the Prince of Persia feel, there's some really nice melee moves you can pull off.

This and Killzone 2 are the ONLY reasons I have not sold my PS3 yet.  If they end up being disappointments, then that system is flat gone.  Hoping against hope.

not nearly as excited about this as i'm supposed to be, not sure why - there's something very 'been there, done that' about it, with nothing really unique off-setting that feeling. hope i'm wrong...

I definitely will buy this, but I just can't shake the feeling it is Tomb Raider with a dude.  Why can't I shake that feeling?  Watching the 1Up Show footage made me appreciate the graphics in the game much more.  Still shots don't seem to do a lot of next-gen games much justice.

That's because it is basically Tomb Raider with a dude, bigger environments, and better cover based combat.

That's not a bad thing, as the game seems more like the original, and recent remake Tomb Raiders than the crappy cash in Tomb Raiders.

The better gunplay is a nice draw.  Too bad there's no mystical creatures so far, I think it'll stay away from the mystical side, which isn't a bad thing.  Could be that they keep it more like Indiana Jones where the mystical elements are really underplayed until the very, very end.
