The Last Guardian

SCEA’s Scott Rohde explained in a post press conference interview with Geoff Keighley why it took them so long to reveal The Last Guardian. “It has been a very long time but I hope it was worth it. It was probably my most exciting moment of the show. I got goosebumps. Sometimes it takes a long time to realize a vision and I think it’s really important to recognize that. At PlayStation it’s really important to us. We are not just going to kick out a game just because it has been promised or whatever but the vision has to stay true and this is the best evidence of that.”

Rohde also stated that the Uncharted collection is one of PlayStation’s main focus for 2015. “That is one of the big focuses, yes for sure. We are really excited about that. We are doing a lot of work to make sure that it’s not just a ‘hey, we are just updating this game’. We are actually going back and making sure that whatever we learn over the last six to seven years of development are applied to all three. It makes a big difference.”

He also revealed that the Uncharted 4 demo is actually 15 minutes long and the remaining seven and a half minutes is actually better than what Sony showcased during its press conference.

“You actually have to come to the booth to see the full 15 minute demo. It’s amazing, really amazing. That team is amazing and again I can’t emphasize that the seven and half minute that people saw at the press conference was escalating like this, it just keeps going for next seven and a half minutes.”

    Sure. Sony shows the worst half of the demo at the conference. That makes perfect sense.

    • ThePokeMaster

      I heard Uncharted 4 will have a better demo behind the scenes too.

    • DarthDiggler


      They may have been pressed for time. Also it appeared they had a little trouble with Uncharted 4 on the stage.

  • Triton

    Looked very last gen. I think this game will sell, but get poor reviews.

  • Starman

    2009 – 2015 , And that game looks horrible , it was originally more of an open-world , they dumb it down to a plat-former , nothing matches … You can clearly see the absence of the true ‘TEAM ICO’ it’s really hard to follow that style of development … UC4 looked straight out of the 90’s style mechanics .. textures were disgusting .. movement OMG, but you all say their show was great , stop fanboying .. it sucked and you all know ..

    And none of those games , (most of them) are multi-plat … but they always try to mislead fans like these games are exclusives …

      You could… you know… try trolling without writing complete nonsense. Trolling is also a talent and you’re clearly lacking that.

      to be honest microsoft games also looked last gen ( by your logic ) especially tomb raider .
      but then again graphics arent the most important thing in games unless you are a dude bro who like shooters and dat sword middle ages game .
      in graphics department there are breathtaking games coming to PS4 .
      the last guardian is an artistic game pretty much like ico and shadow of the colossus which i enjoy up to this day more than 96% of modern games .
      i am glad that reviewers wont follow your method of review and they will experience the game not how many bullets are fired or how many guns are there .
      if you played their previous projects you will understand what is special about their games .
      the more diverse games that offers high quality experiences like this one, mario ratchet , tearaway , star fox .etc, are judged by their experiences and stories something you will not understand if you play shooters and traditional boring games .

      I know that deep inside you believe these things. I mean xbox fanboys are delusional. And you are saying uncharted 4 had horrible graphics and game play? Lol were you wearing a blindfold at that time. Typical delusional, lying xbox fanboy.

    • Tha Truth

      Thank you for proving that Xbone owners are the most uneducated, delusional, unwashed, unemployed pieces of sub – human garbage on the planet. Every single journalist is in agreement that Sony gave the best E3 conference of all time and yet you sit there in your mom’s basement lying through your teeth because you can’t handle the facts that your pathetic, weak, last – gen POS Xbox DONE is flopping at retail and had nothing to show but trash games at E3.

      Keep crying you pathetic piece of gutter trash. Your pathetic fanboy comments aren’t going to make the Xbox get any better games and they’re also not going to save it from flopping at retail. You do realise that, don’t you? ROFL!

    • john smith

      Man I wish there was a way to remove bullshit spewing trash like you. You’re a cancer in these comment sections.

    • Mohamed Sonic

      i agree and also we should remove people like starman too .
      you know those childish one way thinking individuals as if they work for those companies.
      in my opinion there is a difference between being stubborn and defensive, and being a fan , i am a fan of sony simply because i find games that i can express myself in they were the best FOR ME but then again even though i dont own an xbox i found that recore looked interesting for example, people shouldnt be blind they should enjoy thats why its called entertainment

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      Amazing just how much your comment describes you. Glass houses buddy.

    • tplarkin7

      I agree. The Last Guardian looks boring. I’d rather have a girl to drag around, than that bird-dog.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      I’m sure most of life in general looks boring to you, probably all those drugs your mom did while she was pregnant with you.

    • rocketpanda

      Omg, a game that doesn’t cater to you The shock and horror, the games industry will collapse now.

    • Nick

      you must live in backwards land, UC4 graphics look amaing man. And you are trashing a game that was just revealed and nobody has even played yet but you know for a fact that it is garbage??? Jealous much?

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      Its always hilarious watching you xbox guys trying so hard, thanks for the laugh.

    • ShoNuff

      I thought UC4 looked pretty good with some great animations. The Last Guardian though could easily pass as a PS3 game.

  • Tha Truth

    Sony once again deliver the greatest E3 conference of all time displaying real games like The Last Guardian and Uncharted. Meanwhile Microsoft offer nothing but cheap, worthless, sub – HD garbage and timed exclusives like Tomb Raider. Pathetic.

    It’s really no wonder that the PS4 is outselling the Poverty – Box by such a huge, insurmountable margin. With Sony being the only developer offering REAL games and the Xbox having nothing but buggy, unfinished trash it’s easy to see why the Xbox is dead at retail.

    The lies, overhype and underdeliver have caught up with Microsoft. Their weak, underpowered, last – gen trash console has been exposed at E3 for the world to see and sales prove that.

    • PachterStation

      I wonder if The Last Guardian will be swamped with cut scenes and quick time events? Uncharted 4 will be the same old, but isn’t that all games these days?

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      Maybe do some research on the developers making the games you mentioned and you’ll be able to make a better educated comment in the future.

    • ShoNuff

      you give game fans a bad name. I hope to never be as full of blind hatred as you are.

  • BoyBigEyes

    The BEST E3 EVER!!! Thank you Sony! Thank you Square-Enix! Thank you…. ah, everyone! <3

  • john smith

    This niche game is hugely overhyped. Sony showed half the big exclusives MS did and half of them were multiplatform. Not to mention no release dates for any. delirious PS fanboys are out of control in the forums and in the media.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      There is, we have you to balance it out with your delirious fanboying.

    • john smith

      This is the second comment so far where you’ve trolled and insulted me. You obviously have no sensible counter argument.

    • Rikarudo

      yeah agree, it would also benefit everyone to look at what games actually come out this year, so many fanboys left and right not having facts. also, that its not about the actual game, but the fact that its an exclusive that matters and also different people have different opinions, fanboys dont see facts.

    • BinaryMind

      Niche? Shadow of the Colossus sold over a million copies. And it did it again with ICO/SotC Collection on PS3. That’s not niche.

    • Abdul Shahid (CorrodedFreakZ)

      Yeah Microsoft showed “exclusive” games like rise of the tomb raider. We know that it is just a timed exclusive, but Microsoft has no guts to say that it is. And they are also misleading people by saying so. So that’s the kind of exclusives you’ve got. And many Microsoft exclusives were not really exclusive since they are available for pc as well. All in all sony had a better conference. Period.

  • Did Sony even drop the PS4’s price to $349.00??? I don’t think they did, unless I am forgetting about a prior announcement or something… :p

    If there is one guy who is actually a bigger douche in the world of gaming then Cliffy B its got to be Geoff Keighley.
