Nolan North On PS4 Testing: "I Couldn't Believe It Was Gameplay"

We can't wait for the PlayStation 4. For my part, I can't wait to see how the machine will develop over the years.

I'm envious of those inside the industry who get a glimpse of stuff we haven't seen yet, even in brief preview vids at events. Noted voice actor Nolan North (Uncharted) has evidently seen a few mighty impressive things on the PS4...

According to PlayStation LifeStyle citing a recent GamerHub interview with North, it seems he's checking out plenty of cool futuristic entertainment:

"I’ve seen some stuff… gameplay… that they’re testing for… I don’t remember what game it was but they were doing some testing on the PS4 and I couldn’t believe it was gameplay. I mean, it’s extraordinary technology."

He also said that just "when we think we've reached the pinnacle of what a game can look like, some genius somewhere makes it a little bit better." That has continued to happen throughout the history of the industry, and those who have been around long enough know exactly what he means. Yes, there was indeed a time when we couldn't believe that video games could ever look any better than what we saw on the first Nintendo. Why? Because we only had Atari, Colecovision, Intellivision, etc. up until that point, and that's really all we knew.

So, who really knows what the future holds?

Colecovision, whoop whoop!

He just doesn't want to say that it was Uncharted 4 he saw the gameplay for.

It must be fun to stroll through Sony's studios though and see the next big leap in tech on display, especially for someone who is a different kind of artist and not on the inside of all the crazy specs and coding.

I can't wait to see a Naughty Dog game on the PS4. Uncharted 4 or something new really doesn't matter to me. I hope that UC4, if it's being developed, is made by the same team that worked on UC2.

What is the deal with people always have to jump in, hmmmm PC gamers when consoles are being talked about. If you are a PC Gamer, why even jump into a console war or console convos. Are you guys jealous WTF.. I have nothing against Gamers of any type of gaming place you use persay. But seriously it seem rather childish to always see a PC Gamer jump into the fray. You suppose to be the elite but act like you dwell on Atari. Moving on to something of greater importance. Looking forward to seeing the PS4 in action. Hail Gaming :D

Very confusing to read your comment. Anyhow, I'm a console and PC gamer. I believe what the user above was trying to convey, is that the level of graphics seen on the PS4 has been possible on the PC for a good while. When the PS4 launches, it will already be behind. But that's the nature of consoles. Not to mention it makes sense for more people due to cost.

I agree that he must not have seen or played any modern PC games running on a decent machine. Because compared to PS3, the PS4 does/will look amazing. I'm just glad that they've moved to easier, more PC-like hardware. It'll make it better for everyone. Not to mention the lower cost of the console as a result.
