Naughty Dog: There are still “more places we can go with the PlayStation 3”

Posted By | On 04th, Oct. 2011

Naughty Dog’s lead game designer Richard Lemarchand said that even after Uncharted 2 and now Uncharted 3, both of which look stunning, the development team hasn’t tapped out all of the PS3’s potential. There’s still more thing they can do with the PS3, according to him.

“I think there absolutely are more places we can go with the PlayStation 3, even though Naughty Dog famously said we were starting to take full advantage of the capabilities of the machine with Uncharted 2,” he told GI.Biz at Eurogamer Expo some time ago.

“Certainly, what we’re doing with Uncharted 3 shows that there’s plenty yet to coax out of the machine. In terms of the volumetric lighting, the way that light now spatially fills an area so a moving body – say, a character – passes in front of it the light rays that are cast around the character look like something we haven’t seen before, even on current gen systems.

“There’s lots of technology that we’ve innovated with just for this game, like our dynamic water simulation for the sea – just as a for instance, one of the dozens of things that we’ve done. I think that because of the way that the cell processor works and the unique architecture of the PlayStation 3 – just as with the PS2, and the very late generation games on that console.”

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will release on November 1 in US and November 2 in UK and Europe. Stay tuned till then for more info.
