1080peas

The quality and fun of a game is directly quantifiable by its resolution and frame rate. This is is the obvious status quo determined by the internet. It must be this way, or there wouldn’t be a fuss over how may p’s and fps’ a game runs at. A game running at 1080p but at 30fps is half as fun as is a game running at 720p, 60fps. Science thus decrees that a game running at 720p and 30fps is a quarter as fun as one running at the glorious, seemingly unattainable 1080p, 60fps. Thankfully, the next Uncharted may have all the peas necessary to deliver the optimal, maximum fun output.

Yes, with their success in reaching the holy grail of 1080p and 60fps in The Last of Us, Naughty Dog is targeting the same for the next chapter in the Uncharted Saga.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Naughty Dog’s community strategist Arne Meyer said that the company was trying to leverage their new engine to achieve 1080p/60fps.

“A lot of it was because we could try something out on our PS4 engine,” he said. “How far can we do it? Can we do a 1080p, 60fps game? We always wanted to do that, but for the types of effects we wanted to put on screen 720p30 was just fine. Now with the push to go even further that’s not fine enough. So we’re trying to rise to meet that kind of challenge too.

“I think that’s what we want to push for with anything we’re doing on this generation. That’s sort of the mandate from when we were building the PS4 engine. Let’s see if we can do this and hit it. We hit it with The Last of Us Remastered, so why not stick with this?”

In the same chat, Meyer suggested we may see The Uncharted games get a similar remaster, though I personally think it’ll be a waste; why buy an entire up-rezzed trilogy just to play the superior middle game?

The only real bit of the new Uncharted that we’ve seen is the E3 trailer, which Naughty Dog has confirmed to be running in real-time on a single PlayStation 4. If they work their magic, the entire game could look that way.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces. I am also the emperor of the backend

    LOOK AT ALL DEM P’s

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Way less than 1080 peas though :/

  • Umar Fong Wong

    Seems to be the most important thing these days…I personally would love to know more about the actual game but I guess the fact that its gonna be 1080p and 60fps is all that matter these days. It’s what the cool kids these days like to call ‘glorious’….

    • CAE9872

      Couldn’t agree more – am tired of all the 1080:60 vs 720:2 vs 3billion:1 vs 60:5000…

      • Umar Fong Wong

        Same here buddy

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Welcome to graphics over gameplay. Have you met Crysis?

      • Umar Fong Wong

        I heard his brother Ryse is a pretty big douche

  • Spaffy

    Well, at least you didn’t use the other pee…

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I thought it wasn’t about the graphics on consoles but the games? I’m confused.

    • CAE9872

      Hahaha you jest surely!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Mostly ;) Seems like every next-gen game article has to start with how many p’s & fps’s. WHO CARES. It’s not like it’ll make the game less fun if it doesn’t meet some arbitrary new standard that console gamers didn’t have before anyway.

        • CAE9872

          Uh huh agreed

    • FoxOneZA

      At anything over 900p, frame rate becomes a discerning factor. Try playing NFS Rivals at 1080p/30fps and you’ll see how sluggish it can be. More feel like driving through quicksand.

  • Hammersteyn

    All I’m gonna say is that the PS4 kicks ass in graphics department. So it really doesn’t matter

    • CAE9872

      Agreed

  • ElimiNathan

    So next gen

  • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

    Shows you just how advanced the game is. Wow Stunning really. We all know SONY has the world’s most powerful video game console to have ever been created in the history of video games.

    • ElimiNathan

      Steam machines ?

      • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

        Steam machines are consoles now?

        • ElimiNathan

          What defines a console ?

          • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

            Fixed hardware

          • ElimiNathan

            Says who ?

          • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

            Yo momma last night #owned

          • ElimiNathan

            LOL . Shitsweak! Ok moving along

      “We all know SONY has the world’s most powerful video game console to have ever been created in the history of video games”
      What an achievement. How could it not be? Imagine a world where the PS4 was weaker than the PS3.

      • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

        Sony’s main goal with the PS4 was to deliver the most powerful console at a price that gamers consider to be acceptable. Now go beg/petition for more console games

        • Praise Lord GabeN

          Beg? No thanks.

          • Guest

            Lol shitty low scoring Indy and f2p games. Quality over quantity my fat sweating friend. Looks like pc will be repeating a grade lmao

          • Praise Lord GabeN

            I see you posted as guest, are you perhaps browsing the internet on your PS4?

          • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

            Tsek! The picture didn’t link correctly and I had to delete the comment

          • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

            Lol shitty low scoring Indy and f2p games. Quality over quantity my fat sweating friend. Looks like pc will be repeating a grade lmao!!!

          • Praise Lord GabeN

            Wow, this is fun.

            Ok, as a rebuttal you post some report card listing a bunch of numbers next to sites and platforms with the PS4 missing entirely from it?

            Alright, here is my repsponse:
            LORD GABEN’s REPORT CARD:
            XBone: 45
            PS4: 46
            PC: 120

            Well done PC.
            XBone and PS4, not good enough, come see me aftwards.

          • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

            Wow for a so called intelligent “Master race” you guys sure need a lot of explaining.
            Generation 7 (Pc,Xbox360,PS3)
            Platform with number of GOTY awarded titles
            Pc – lol
            Ps3 – Roflstomped ALL the others

            You list a fuckton of games (90% of them will be shit)
            You compare pc games to consoles that are out for just over 7 months with console launch games.

            Enjoy your shitty games!

            Go back to giving GABEN a handjob and playing counterstrike

          • Praise Lord GabeN

            Eurogamer only handed out 3 GOTY in generation 7? Your report card seems off. You know what games get GOTY awards? -> COD. Enjoy your military shooters.

            Everytime I boot up steam I get a figurative handjob from GabeN. It’s that good!

          • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

            3 PS3 (exclusive) GOTY awards from EG.

            Enjoy! And now with Oculus rift you’ll never have to break eye contact with the GAbeN!

          • Martin du preez (D4RKL1NGza)

            <3

          • Hammersteyn

            A bit outdated really, plus I still have my PS3…. and my Vita….. oh and my PC

  • Morne Nell

    This is going to set a new standard on what is possible in the graphics department, incredible. I am totally screwed, last of us, diablo and then Destiny all in a short space of time hope plus is giving us crap games this month…….

  • Morne Nell

    This together with Destiny will take up 90 GIG of space on the console, eish

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

    Can I just say this?

    I don’t feel resolution is such a big thing but I do feel that framerate is.

    30FPS on a 60Hz screen can be rather jarring.

    • FoxOneZA

      At 1080p, yep.

  • Consumer of Little Rabbits

    honestly who cares. I mean really now. Folk will be much more interested in the games fidelity than its stupid framerate or res. Cant wait for this silly vice on gaming to abscond itself. I can only think devs are setting themselves up for unnecessary critique. Folk should be concentrating on content not output.

  • Consumer of Little Rabbits

    Header win though!

  • Praise Lord GabeN

    Peasants, amiright?

  • FoxOneZA

    1080p/60fps should be easily achieved on the PS4 with the 7850 but the AMD APU is a glorified donkey.
