The Last of Us developer well-equipped for next-gen.

“Look at what arrived today at Naughty Dog… 120 more PS4 devkits!”

– Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra

We know Naughty Dog is working on something for PlayStation 4. Sony confirmed as much at Gamescom. But until we know what will follow this year’s The Last of Us, we can rest easy knowing the developer is well-equipped for next-gen.

Play-Asia
  • Cry_Zero

    Gamestop listed Uncharted 4 for Ps4, so the announcement should be right around the corner. Maybe at the vgas?

    • Raiyu

      Makes sense. Announcement in December, reveal at the VGAs like Uncharted 3 and TLoU. Can’t wait for it.

      • King-Podigy-X

        Don’t forget Uncharted 2 was announce there as well.

        • Budgiecat

          Uncharted X Shenmue crossover with guest star Lara Croft and Indiana Jones

          • 罪罰

            That sounds horrible.

        • Dasher1572

          and Uncharted 3, and The Last of Us.

  • DarthNemesis

    ND alone is reason to buy a PS4.Best first party devs easily.

    • miyamoto

      100% agree

  • bloodiOS

    Another surprise reveal planned for VGA?
    I’m looking forward to The First of Them or Uncharted 4ever.

    • GhostNomad

      VGAs was my first thought as well.

      On an unrelated note, damn your avatar. I’m trying to tame an AoT addiction right now and you’re not helping >8[

      • bloodiOS

        Ehehehe! Glad I could help.

        • GhostNomad

          Bad Bloodios. Bad!

  • King-Podigy-X

    Uncharted 4 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • 罪罰

      Enough Uncharted.

      • King-Podigy-X

        Never!!!!!!!!!!!

      • miyamoto

        please shadupp! :-D

        more Uncharted is needed by the industry

      • bloodiOS

        I agree, we need Charted instead!

    • SuperLuigi

      Uncharted series > Last of Us HAHAHA! No seriously I hope the next game is uncharted 4.

    • Hidayat246

      Uncharted Kart

      • bloodiOS

        That must be one hell of a kart for someone to go out of their way to put it in such a place.

        • Hidayat246

          too much work LOL

          thinking that game exist someday make me LOL every time

  • Ritsujun

    UC4’d be announced on 1st of Dec.

  • MrFinalgamer

    it better be Unkarted or i will be extremely disappointed!

    • Budgiecat

      What if it’s Legend of Galactic Heroes: The game?

  • Anime10121

    Yes yes YES!!!! Gimmie gimmie GIMMEH!!!

  • AnimusVox

    Very nice :>

  • LastBoss

    Rug Roh, Reorge!!!

  • DesmaX

    Whatever they’ll do, I want

  • AdamBoy64

    I read the title as Naughty Dog themselves shipping out PS4’s.
    Not an easy title to word though.

    • zeothedeathgod

      glad im not the only one. but yeah its hard to word correctly.

  • Budgiecat

    But I want a PS4 Devkit……. : (

    • bloodiOS

      So infiltrate their headquarter, steal one, then pussyfoot out of there without anybody noticing.

      • Budgiecat

        Y U no halp…

        • bloodiOS

          Because the devkit isn’t as sexy as the retail model.

        • GhostNomad

          Bloodios is making a habit out of not being helpful, I see >.>

          • bloodiOS

            Ah, but being able operate independently will be very beneficial for Budgiecat’s future. So I believe my decision does help tremendously ;)

            • GhostNomad

              But if Sony finds out that ND is missing a DevKit and they think someone from the studio is trying to rip them off they might get shut down! No more epic games for any of us and that is no bueno!

              • bloodiOS

                Then ND just have to be able to think up a way to clone that beast. Being able to adapt to any given situation, no matter how unpredictable is a trait of a capable and successful developer after all. As for Sony, they simply has to learn to turn the other way, as being able to think ahead and not let a small mishap hinders their future success is trait of a caring and successful corporation ;)

                • GhostNomad

                  Somehow I really hate the fact that you’re making sense <.<

                  • bloodiOS

                    Hey, don’t worry about it, it’s Responsibility Shifting no Jutsu! It sits among the best jutsu ever created ;)

                    • GhostNomad

                      I was trained to take responsibility for my actions!

                      After all, if I did something ‘bad’ and got caught, I wasn’t good enough to get away with it therefore it’s my fault and I have to take responsibility for my failure! To hell with taking the easy way! >8]

                    • bloodiOS

                      You are a very respectable person. I sincerely admire you.

                    • GhostNomad

                      Likewise, while your Jutsu may not be my style, I admire your thoughtfulness!

                    • bloodiOS

                      I mostly only pull it on my troll time ;)

                    • GhostNomad

                      Hey, long as you have a use for it and it’s actually efficient at accomplishing your goal (regardless of its nature), why hide it? :P

                    • bloodiOS

                      Nah, using it in a serious scenario sorta makes me sounds like a jerk (and sometimes an idiot.) Beside, it would be very hard to pull it off during a serious argument when each person carefully provides their own point of view while constantly covering as many vulnerabilities as possible. It’s much easier during a joke while everyone’s guard is down.

                    • GhostNomad

                      So in other words, it’s the ground’s fault for jumping up and hitting you in the face if you’re having a few drinks and a good time with friends, but if shit hits the fan, game face is on and the proper responsibilities are taken? My wording’s a bit goofy, but if you’re saying what I think you’re saying, then you’re even cooler in my book :P

                    • bloodiOS

                      Yeah, but there’s also another factor to consider. During jokes, no one really needs to take the responsibility for anything so it’s fine to toss it around. But when things are serious, and no one takes the proper responsibility, things will fall out of place, and ended up leaving a bad taste in mouth. No one wants that.

                    • GhostNomad

                      Well see, that depends. I’ve known quite a few people who would always toss the blame around (anywhere from childish things to full-on legal issues) regardless of how serious the matter was, and that’s never sat well with me. It’s easy to never take responsibility for your actions, but what’s the point of life if everything is easy? Life is meant to have those ups and downs, be really awesome one moment and extremely harsh the next, but dealing with those moments is what defines us. If we want good things to come our way but aren’t willing to put in the appropriate amount of work to make it happen, then we’re completely ignoring our near-infinite potential!

                      This is so off-topic that it almost hurts. Hopefully Gematsu won’t mind our ramblings!

            • Budgiecat

              But I’m just a cat while you have the 3D maneuverable gear…

              • bloodiOS

                You’re a cat, small and nimble, and you have black fur, much harder to spot in the dark while I attract too much attention with my desirable face, bro.

                • GhostNomad

                  Hey, at least you have dem CQC skills to put most people to shame, so if a group of unarmed guards rush you, you can hold your own!

                  Then again, Bungie IS a cat, and the internet practically worships their kind so…. He/she can probably just stroll in with zero fucks given, look adorable, and walk off with a DevKit.

  • miyamoto

    Oh yeah, baby! Drake!!!!

  • bloodiOS

    Last night, I had a dream… of Naughty Dogs collaborating with Ghibli Studio!

    • Yuri4prez

      Hell yeah! Ni No Sully: Wrath of The White Mustache!

  • https://twitter.com/RyoonZ RyoonZ

    Uncharted 4 baby!
    Can’t wait!

  • Nitraion

    If only they didn’t sell crash bandicoot….
    i kinda miss him..
    naughty dog’s PS1 Crash bandicoot games is the best….
    PS2 crash bandicoot is trash…
    oh well can’t wait to another great creation

    • zeothedeathgod

      they didnt sell him, they left universal, and activision combined with universal, gaining the rights.

    • Elvick

      They never owned it. Universal did.

      As I understand, Sony still holds control or at least part control over the original PSone Classics, but otherwise never had any control on the IP itself. Sadly.

      Naughty Dog, an indie developer at the time, certainly didn’t own the IP.

      Now the IP is dead with Activision. Probably for the better, they’d probably just murder it like they did Spyro by sentencing him to a Skylanders grave.

      • Nitraion

        Hmm i see….
        so they just an indie back then but their job is fenomenal for Ps1 era… spyro is good game too in PS1

      • Zancrow

        Yeah, Sony do owns the old ones, considering they are available on PSN.

  • King-Podigy-X

    Nolan North on PS4: “I’ve Seen Some Stuff… I Couldn’t Believe it was Gameplay”

    http://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2013/09/16/nolan-north-on-ps4-ive-seen-some-stuff-i-couldnt-believe-it-was-gameplay/

    • bloodiOS

      He couldn’t believe it was gameplay, because it probably wasn’t?

      • GhostNomad

        He’s a VA, it’s not his job to know gameplay! /jusplayin

        • bloodiOS

          Oh, definitely. He’s just generating hype for a potentially new Uncharted game, where he gets to voice the main character again. /troll

          • Umar Jahangir

            He was in TLoU but as a villain. Don’t be so sure that its Uncharted.

            • bloodiOS

              He’ll still be generating hypes for a game he’s in… /troll

  • Zackasaur

    120 more.

    More.

    I guess they’re probably starting their second PS4 project now or soon. :3

    • bloodiOS

      I hope it’s a new IP with a female protagonist.

      • Zackasaur

        I don’t care about gender. It’s just a social construct.

        And, in Naughty Dog’s case, I’d be excited for more TLoU and/or Uncharted. Bloody brilliant games, all around. I’m sure a new IP by them would also be amazing, of course.

        • bloodiOS

          Well, I think it just freshens up the perspective. I got too tired looking at male characters in games and there aren’t enough primary female protagonists around.

          • Zackasaur

            I’m all for female protagonists, the same way I’m all for male protagonists. They’re really just people, unless the devs are making a political statement of some kind. There is nothing unique about a female’s perspective versus a male’s, unless the society they live in forces gender roles on people (like our real-life society does). Thus, it’s really up to the story and setting to determine whether or not the sex of the protagonist makes a difference.

            And I’m definitely up for some good feminist commentary in my games, so you have a point there.

            Elena is an awesome character in Uncharted, and don’t even get me started on Ellie in TLoU. <3

            • bloodiOS

              Yeah, but I’d like a female character that I can control. I personally find it more exciting. I guess it’s more of personal thing.

              • GhostNomad

                Simple solution, make it a game like ToX where you can pick between the male/female lead! And if the stories change depending on the point of view, that only encourages further playthroughs (so long as the game’s fun, anyway)!

            • DrForbidden

              Females and males can have different perspectives in real life, because gender is only partially a social construct. The other part is biological. It is just extremely difficult to reflect such perspective shifts in video games, especially when the main target audience is male and a not-insignificant portion of that target audience also holds sexist or misogynistic views.

          • GhostNomad

            Honestly as long as the story is great, the main character can be either gender. There’ll be plenty of other characters (NPCs/party members/etc) who are bound to add to the diversity so it’s not just a group of a bunch of overly beefy dudes or ladies with chests so large that they have their own zipcodes.

          • Jay

            If that’s the case, I hope they make one with a black guy as the lead… That would really be fresh.

            Maybe get Denzel Washington to do the acting and voice work. I think that would be great.

            • bloodiOS

              Might as well be an African American woman.

          • Yuri4prez

            Uncharted with a female character? ……..Tomb Raider!

  • Elvick

    I’m ready for another Uncharted now. Which I wasn’t when Uncharted 3 came out. Thought it was too soon, but it’s been awhile. And they already owned with one of the best new IPs of this generation. So, I want some more Nathan Drake.

    Though I wouldn’t be against another new IP, but I think they’ll go with another Uncharted.

  • Gigus

    I’d be surprised if they announced a new IP at the worst video game award show again this year (VGAs). If they don’t announce anything new for ps4, I really hope they just announce the new story DLC content for The Last of Us.

  • King-Podigy-X

    They did it’s called The Last Of Us. It’s been 2 years, they just released a new ip, it’s time for a new Uncharted damn it.
