@tap- actually, they mad a blog post on how this is the longest game they've done
Considering the fact that all Uncharted games can be finished in less than 10 hours, yeah, this game might be be a bit longer (12-15 hours at most). Don't expect a 30-hour franchise or else you will likely be disappointed.
I guess that's the trade off of making a cinematic game... you cannot have the duration of Skyrim and cinematic moments like in Uncharted.
But aren't the Jack and Daxter Games 20 hours long? Because on PlayStation Blog they wrote that The Last Of Us is the longest game Naughty Dog has ever made.
J&D is not as cinematic as Uncharted or TLOU. Also, ND employees that made J&D (like Andy Gavin) don't work at ND anymore.
Considering the game releases the day after E3, I have this funny feeling that Naughty Dog will have 1 last surprise for us during the event. Heck, depending on which day Sony does their conference (Like Tuesday or Wednesday?) maybe they'll even blow everyone's mind and say, at the end of the Sony Press Conference, "Oh, by the way, 'The Last of Us' will be available RIGHT NOW." -- I'm sure few days earlier of a release would make up for that 5 week delay
In other news, Watch Dogs is coming out for all consoles this December, and the rumour is that it'll be on the next-gen consoles too. Can't wait to play that game on PS4, it looks completely awesome on PS3 so a graphics upgrade will make it even sweeter.
I doubt it. The release date is "Q4 2013," but I'm sure it will get pushed back into 2014.
And honestly, I have a feeling it IS a next-gen title. Last year's E3 had a lot of games that felt like they were meant for PS4/XBOX720. And the devs probably just said they were coming out for PS3/360 because new consoles had not been officially announced yet.
I'd love for Sony to shock everyone and say "Oh yeah, last year you saw next-gen titles and didn't even know it." (Beyond Two Souls, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros, Watch_Dogs, etc.)
