Uncharted 3 Will Be Graphically Superior To Uncharted 2
Naughty Dog has said they will continue to make Uncharted "as long as the fans want it," but they must've already assumed the reaction to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves would be good enough to warrant a third entry (and of course, that's a correct assumption).
But as amazing as this sequel looks - just trust us when we say it's the best-looking console game you've ever seen - it seems the team actually can actually make a future title look better. According to what co-lead game designer Neil Druckman told the gaming press, Uncharted 3 is going to blow our minds once again, and it's not necessarily due to the power of the PlayStation 3. In fact, Druckman says they're already working with the full power of the hardware for Uncharted 2, but the engine for the game can be optimized to look visually superior. In a direct contrast, it seems Uncharted: Drake's Fortune only utilized about 30% of the PS3 hardware, which - mathematically speaking - would mean Naughty Dog used more than three times the hardware power in the making of Uncharted 2. Plus, with the 90 minutes of cinematic content that will emulate real life better than ever before, Uncharted 2 is going to be one fine production...but can you even begin to imagine what Uncharted 3 might look like? Can the designers really take another significant step? If so...wow.
We always get a big kick out of seeing the graphical achievements developers continue to make. Graphics don't make the game, but they sure as hell add to the experience.
