  • zakou

    I love zombies <3

    • Would you become one? lol

      • zakou

        I already am.

  • Here are three screen-caps I took from the download version of the 2-minute gameplay (which is 1.7 gigs, btw!):

      Any public links available to the original source file?

          Thanks, much appreciated =)

      awesome looks great man

    • The game looks amazing.. but (and no its not a bad but) this gen’s graphics are showing their age. I can’t stop looking at the demo for Star Wars 1313 which runs in real time and I get super exited for next gen. What I am saying is if graphics look this good on a PS3 imagine what we are getting with the PS4 even if that jump is just a small one.. should be very amazing. Will be picking up this game it will pretty much be my first 2013 game along with Lightning returns and a few others.

  • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

    who needs PS4 or Xbox3? I’d gladly remain faithful to my trusty PS3 until 2015/16 ( ̄▽ ̄)

    • KurisuMakise

      Don’t kid yourself, there’ll be something in the wings~ For now the only commitment of faith is until The Last of Us er Tales of Xillia <3 Then I'm jumping ship =P! Speaking of, this game looks beautiful and I love the strategy. I enjoy stealthing and being strategic, so this game feels like it was made for me n.n!

      • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

        Allow me to put my comment into context. I bought my PS3 in December of 2009 (imported a Japanese LE 250GB model), that’s roughly 3 years after she launched. The console was affordable, there was a huge catalog of games and the older ones were very affordable.

        Right now I have lots of games I haven’t even started playing yet. Gonna be doing exactly that until 2015/16 and once an attractive Japanese LE PS4 bundle releases (I love my White FFXIII Lightning PS3 and I consider the Black-Red-Gold ToX LE PS3 the best LE design besides my own) I’m there.

        I’m simply not in a rush to buy the new system. PS3 improved a lot through FW updates and I envy anybody picking up a Vita now, as the system’s functionality, usability, OS and apps are a completely different beast from the launch model. She is vastly improved right now courtesy of FW 2.0.

        Hope now you can contextualize the meaning of my statement ;)

        • KurisuMakise

          I never had any doubts about your statement Ro, just had to tease hence the “~”. You’ve got a good strategy and one I was planning to do but then the hype got to me so I probably won’t wait. Funny enough I’m be it by force of budget doing that very plan on handhelds, though it’s only a matter of time.

          • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

            Well, sorry I abused your comment as a pretext to tell the community how much I care for my sexy white box, ’tis all :P

            Sony are in a position to offer a very convincing launch line-up courtesy of their plethora of top-tier 1st and 2nd party studios (can’t imagine what Quantic Dream will achieve on Sony’s new hardware considering the visuals of Heavy Rain and BEYOND).
            I simply want one of those sexy Japanese LE consoles as they look gorgeous. As I believe history to repeat itself none of the sexy special limited designs will ever reach American or European shores so I’ll wait for a design I can’t refuse.

            The price will be probably around the 350/400 $/€ mark, I assume. So start saving now :P
            I’m wondering whether games will still retail at 60 bucks.

            • KurisuMakise

              I wish I could start saving now, even with Atelier Ayesha shaved off my list (someone’s gifting it to me, hurray); there’s still Tomb Raider and Neptunia in March, Soul Sacrifice and a Vita for April and of course The Last of Us in May. Wait, I sense Muramasa is supposed to be in this mix too. Ah, I’m drowning, these new trailers only cement the screams of my wallet. Also now that you’ve mentioned your sexy white box, I’m wondering if I should wait out too. I’ll probably be in Japan when the PS4 launches, it might do me well to wait a bit.

              • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)


    • Yeah depending on what games the PS4 has I might not get one myself until DAT game I want is actually out… that tends to take years. We are still waiting for VS XIII LOL! I should have got my PS3 in 2013 -_-

    • Elvick

      I need PS4 now. I wants it so bad. I’m ready for it. Doesn’t mean I’m done with PS3, and neither are developers. So I look forward to future PS3 releases and PS4 releases.

  • Guest

    The last of us will be the best game on Ps3. Im sure about that. Just look how great this game looks

  • Charlie

    Jesus, I’m glad I’m not in Joel’s or Ellie’s situation.

  • devovit

    give it to me now

  • Clickers do one hit kills, I like that. It will really make you need to pay attention and give you “oh shit” moments when you see them. That sound they make is perfect, you could be exploring and scavenging all of a sudden you hear a weird noise in the distance, getting louder as each second passes.

  • Zancrow

    Dem noises! Jesus Christ!

  • My God, I got nervous while watching the 2 minute gameplay video. Can’t wait to get my hands on this game.

  • Ramza Beoulve

    Man this is getin even better XD

  • Holy crap…. I haven’t felt this kind of intense since Resident Evil 4….

  • Solomon_Kano

    Dat ambiance.

    I need this game in my life. Looks like a nice change of pace from a lot of what we’ve got right now. An excellent title for what I presume will be Naughty Dog’s PS3 swan song. Unless they put the Uncharted team to work on PS4 and this teams stays on PS3. That would be awesome, actually.

  • Prodigy-X

    Looks amazing. Definitely Game Of The Year 2013

  • PrinceHeir

    gonna wait this out sorry :(

    and what about the multiplayer?

    how will that work???
