The Last of Us E3 Gameplay Demo

This is the 3rd and final big game that Sony showed at E3 this year. Developed by Naughty Dog, the makers of the Uncharted series, The Last of Us is a post apocalyptic survival action/adventure game where a fungus has infected the human race and driven our species to the brink of extinction - yet its "not a zombie game" - other survivors and the military pose a threat as well. Its a single player game where the protagonist is controlled by the player and the AI controls his companion, a 14 year old girl, who have come to depend on each other for survival in their quest to escape the quarantined zone. Beyond that, we dont know much, other than that if games like this can be produced in 2 years time on current gen consoles, do we really even need a next generation?

I like how the camera moves perfectly with the action and the dialogue depends on what is happening.

I can't take that still image seriously because all I see is them riding one of these which is out of shot to the left.

If the PS4 continues with the kind of exclusives it's getting compared to the 360 (not that they need to encourage some ppl because the XBLA process is so painful and expensive for developers so more are not bothering), then it is going to look like the more attractive console.

They'd still need to change their controller though or make it easy to use a 360 one.

Also, I've still not forgotten the staggered release, so that by the time it came out in the UK months later it had had the Emotion Engine for PS2 backwards compatibility removed.
