Naughty Dog’s latest opus, Uncharted 2, is approaching release and it’s shaping up nicely, ranking top among the best looking games on PS3. In fact, it’s pushing the technical envelope in such ways that are not possible to replicate on Xbox 360, according to company co-president Christophe Balestra.



I guarantee that this game couldn’t be working on Xbox 360. It would be impossible. I’m 100 percent sure of this.
First of all, we fill the Blu-ray 100 percent, we have no room left on this one. We have 25GB of data; we’re using every single bit of it.
Further to this, Balestra mentioned that his team has completely maxed out the PS3’s number-crunching SPU cores with Uncharted 2. For comparison purposes, the original only utilized them to around 30 percent capacity, which is quite a difference. It’s the first time we’ve heard a developer outright admit they’re using the PS3 to its full potential, but all things considered, we think it shows.

So are you still with Xbox360?

Well, that kind of comment was to be expected. Fanboys are looking for fuel to burn and Naughty Dog is giving it to them. Heck, it'll probably give their game more exposure because of bad tabloid-like gaming magazines which will either print or post online this comment. If you ask me, it doesn't really matter if it can be done or if it can't be done on Xbox 360 since it's not coming to it either way. The "which is more powerful" console argument is stupid since it no longer plays a meaningful part in console sales. Besides, many of the developers (like iD, for example) commented on the strenghts and weaknesses of PS3 and Xbox 360 and as far as I can understand they aren't that far off in raw power department.

I always find these "we pushed x console here to its limits" comments from developers to be a royal load, reeks of short sightedness and smells heavily of PR. Wait until the end of the consoles lifetime and you'll see games taking x console to its fullest.

Anyway the game looks pretty cool.

PC > PS3. End of story.



Where are u seeing awesome graphics in this pic, really ?? It looks like garbage. Is this the PS3 kiss ass section ?? Even Wolfeinstein 2009 has better graphics than this pic. Just put the glasses on for ****'s sake. Blind fanboyism, this is retarded. Goodbye.

PS: Even FFXIII looks better... No reason for such a fuss.

I'm sure a PC version is possible...but if the game lives up to what it's claiming, most people would probably need an upgrade.

The picture looks pretty good to me. How can you even say it looks worse then Wolfeinstein? Wolfeinstein looks like something from 2005. Everything in that game looks like Half Life 2 given a make over. This looks way more modern. Blind PC fanatic more like it :rolleyes:

And like Xblade has said...there's a difference between making full use and pushing the limit. Their first and foremost point they sayd is pretty redundant...and mediocre at best. Okay, yes, full 25GB. That's not a make or break game. Has the gaming generation gotten so lazy they can't stand swapping a disc after several hours? And only needing to do it once or twice? Good God. Spoiled brats.

I do want a see a clip of it in action though. That way we can judge it a bit more accurately.

Too bad most devs pursue for graphics and visuals forgetting about gameplay. Gameplay wise I'd say PS1 > PS3. PC is nowhere near better nowadays, nor X360. So many old DOS games are more fun than most of today's. Everything's the same, only visuals and settings change but there's no originality whatsoever. How much is Uncharted 2 different than say, the first Tomb Raider apart from few cosmetic things (hiding behind covers, etc.)? Why do I have more fun playing the first Unreal than Crisis?

M$ has actually realized that. LIVE arcade games are doing really, really well. And it's one big reason why the 360 is still so popular.

Hell, I jump on Castle Crushers now and then. Always nice to just let 'er rip with some friends :D

That's going a little too far, man. Soon you'll claim that Morrowind looks better :>

That looks much like Jade Empire.
I know, I'm just making fun of this uncharted game. I know a stupid game when I look at it and this is one. First, graphically it doesn't really look all that great (the textures on the walls looks like ****) and second I read the gameplay is really dumb.

If this game is the full power of PS3, then, I feel sorry for Sony.

Nothing else to report. It wasn't me who came with the conclusion. It was them guys. ;) I'm not jumping to anything. They said it's the full potential. If that is the full potential, I can assume it's pathetic. And.. PS3 has almost 3 years am I right ?? After 3 years and all they come up with is this thing. And to make things worse, people start.. "wowwww, this is awesome". As if we haven't never seen games much, gazilion times superior than this one graphics wise.

Give me a break... Hah.. What a waste of my goddamn time.
