This game looks phenomenal. I hope this is where we're headed for the next generation of consoles, and not just current PC hardware level graphics.

Looks like the game is going to play it self.

He says, after watching about 15 seconds of gameplay. What were you expecting, Half Life 2?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure shit like that out.

I think I'm somehow graphically impaired, since I can't really see the awesome in this. I mean it looks really good, but if this is what next gen is I just don't find it that exciting. I guess the current gen is just visually good enough for me and this just reaches the diminishing returns. Of course there is more you can do with more processing power like better AI and that could be good.

So... Star Wars: Uncharted.

Sentient Star Wars game confirmed!

@Rohok: Of course. That's because pretty much every non-vegetable human on the planet is capable of making an assumption.

Yeah I got that vibe from the character movements as well.  Seems like that's the basic idea behind what they're trying to do here.  Gameplay wise it looks about standard for 3rd person shooter/platformer.  
 
Graphics look great but I'm not especially invested in 'pretty' at this point.

Does anyone know what the number 1313 is about?

Gears of (Star) Wars?

This trend of cinematic games that practically play themselves is disturbing. Granted it's early, but based on the videos these developers hand-picked to show off, Tomb Raider, RE6 and 1313 all appear to be the same game (Uncharted 2) in different clothing. Follow the dot, cover shoot, follow the dot, cutscene, repeat for 8 hours.

It's like we're using all this processing power to hurtle back to the CD-ROM era. Bad enough that military shooters are doing their version of the same thing.

Star Wars: Uncharted sounds like a pretty awesome combination to me

Edited by vikingdeath1

I Truly hope this turns out to be awesome, and get good StarWars games getting made again...... It's been too long....

Clearly, a rocket scientist wouldn't draw any conclusions before he had all the facts. That would lead to disastrous results.

This is next gen. They needed nextgen hardware to make Uncharted 2. No thank you.

We'll never have a jump like we did from PS2->360 or PS3. Games from this generation will stand up better in the future than any other console generation so far

I hope it's more than Star Wars: Uncharted but even if it is, the game is jaw droppingly beautiful and that's enough to keep my interest until we know more.

So Star Wars: Uncharted, looks like it could be fun.

And the set pieces. And how tired cover based third person shooters will be when the next gen hits.

@DoctorWelch: 1313 is the level of a city. So at the beginning they were traveling down to level 1313 which is sorta like the crime ridden, bad guy hang out level. I forgot the name of the planet.

Apparently the planet Corusent (sp?) is made of descending levels and this takes place on level 1,313. Heard that in an interview with the game's director.

Edit: Note to self: read all comments before replying.

A Star Wars game that's all Han Solo and Boba Fett-types sounds like just about the best Star Wars game you could possibly make at this point.

Cracking wise and shooting first in the dirty future, it's what I'm all about.

Blaster sound could use some work, though

Posted by MeatSim

Finally something to fill my hunger for a new Star Wars game and looks like there putting some serious effort into it.

Posted by RoyaleWifCheese

It's pretty, yeah, but I saw a cover-based shooter with the "Star Wars" license slapped on it.

I get more and more cynical with every passing E3.

Posted by tastyhouse

Maybe its the compression on the video - but this doesn't look THAT great. It looks good - but my mind is not blown or anything. Oh and while the graphics may be cutting edge I've had this gameplay for 6 or 7 years on my xbox...thanks.

Posted by Lazyaza

It's going to be really depressing next gen when we have all this crazy new tech and we're still just playing a billion slightly different versions of a shooter.

Posted by maverick_76

Looks pretty sick, but that only lasts for so long. Star Wars needs to make sure the story and all the little things are done well, because as we all know in the department of graphics and visuals, there's always a bigger fish.

Agreed.

Posted by lowestformofwit

I can't believe how generic games are getting these days. This looks like any other third-person cover-based shooter and was it just me or did their blaster effects sound nothing like star wars??

Sign me up when they show something more interesting involving lightsabers and, you know, stuff from the star wars universe.

Star Gears of Uncharted Wars looks freaking amazing!!!

Wow! This came from out of nowhere. I wish to see more...bring it!

I sort of feel the same way. This looks slightly better than Uncharted in terms of visuals. There are moments in God of War 3 that look better than this game right now, on PS3s we already have.

Posted by Roger778

That looks awesome!

@DoctorWelch: The 1313th level down into the planet.
