Naughty Dog Wants All of Its PS4 Titles to Run in 1080p at 60FPS

Posted by Sammy Barker

High standards

Naughty Dog is no stranger to pushing the boundaries of PlayStation platforms, having set visual benchmarks on all three of Sony’s previous systems. Now, with its PlayStation 4 debut just a week away, the developer is aiming to do the same – and with re-release The Last of Us Remastered set to run in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, it doesn’t intend to lower its standards any time soon.

We already know, of course, that the gorgeous Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will target the top-tier benchmark – and the Californian studio seems pretty confident that it can hit it. “I think that [1080p60] is what we want to push for with anything that we're doing on this generation,” community strategist Arne Meyer told

He continued: “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?” Considering how good Nathan Drake looked in the sequel’s first trailer, we reckon that it will be a difficult statistic to maintain – but if anyone can do it, it’ll be Naughty Dog.

Elsewhere, Meyer reiterated that an Uncharted Collection for Sony’s next-gen system would be cool. “We'll have to see,” he concluded. “You know, I'd like to see it, and [Worldwide Studios president] Shu [Yoshida] would like to see it, too.” The question is: would you?

then sony are going to have to add externall HDD support then for installing games the Wii U can do it and the XONE is getting it

Wow. Talking about putting yourself under pressure, right? I can hardly believe that Uncharted 4 will have the ingame graphics shown in the gorgeous trailer, even less in 1080p at 60fps, but surprise me, please!

And as you said, if anyone can pull it off, then it's dem dogs. They made the PS3 shine for sure.

Edit: And about that UC collection for PS4: Yes, please! As someone who didn't/doesn't own a PS3 and just played parts of the first three games at friends places (and loved 'em), I'd be all over this in a heartbeat!

I played uncharted drakes fortune for the first time just the other day and have started uncharted 2 but if a collection for the ps4 is announced I won't be buying 3. The games are gorgeous and good fun but the shooting and platforming mechanics are starting to feel aged a bit (especially in the first game) and if those things are fixed in a rerelease then I would certainly double dip. Idk maybe I'm just used to how much more accurate the sticks are on the ds4. The games are great nonetheless and I'm certain we will see them on ps4 at some point.

@get2sammyb I'm down to about 120GB the Last of Us is going to take 50GB of that and I'm not messing about changing the HDD on my PS4 because I can't afford to replace it if anything goes wrong so I would rather have a nice safe option of a external HDD that also allows us to upgarde our HDD space without having to keep taking the console apart in order to do it

I have 2 1TB HDD's on my Wii U and it works like a charm and I'm getting one for my XONE too (hence why I have no money now I spent it all on a PS4, XONE and a Wii U ^_^ I had to save for ages)

@FullbringIchigo changing the hard drive in the ps4 is really simple and pretty safe but I can see ur point. It would be easier to have something you could just plug n play and not have to worry about transferring anything to a new hard drive.

@FullbringIchigo changing the hard drive on the PS4 is one of the easiest things ever. I understand your hesitation but its by far the better solution IMO. Taking the console apart isn't close to what you have to do, you simply slide the shiny surface on the top off and unscrew the HDD from the tray.

This 'darling' status ND has in the industry never ceases to amaze me. It's like they've entered the realms of godlike recently with this 1080p60 talk. Shame that spec doesn't guarantee a great game now eh, but then with all the hot air blowing around from outlets recently you'd think it was all that mattered

@FullbringIchigo considering the fact that the PS4 only has 2 USB ports compared to the Xb1's 4 USB ports and 1 of those USB ports will already be taken by my PS Gold Headset, I will just rather upgrade the internal HDD. It's pretty easy to do. I'm also in that 120gb range on my PS4, while I'm still in the 320gb range on my Xbox One.

@MadchesterManc Naughty Gods! The resolution wars can get any game into the headlines, even some I shouldn't be aware of. But they are overhyping this 1080p 60fps talk, which fuels the resolution wars. Let the work speak for itself.

Any idea when we might get to see some in game footage of uncharted 4? Are there any games shows left this year for any reveals? Still waitin for TLOU footage to decide if im goin to double dip. Really enjoyed it on ps3 wouldnt mind a second helping if the graphical update is worth it. Screenshots so far havent really given a good indication I dont think.



ReigningSemtex said:

Naughty dog are blatantly making that uncharted collection, either that or they have hired another studio to handle the collection I imagine that bend would do it after naughty dog worked with them for golden abyss

@Gamer83 I'd disagree entirely. They create experiences which lack gameplay. I seriously can't fathom the love Sony fanboys give them. I heard nothing but how amazing ND were when I was a Nintendo/old Sega console gamer and then when I came to PS3 and tried Uncharted I was left completely unmoved. It's just slow, boring and predictable. TLOU too is probably the worst game - from just the gameplay point of view before the abuse comes in - I've played in years. For me since PS3 they've become charlatans covering average gameplay mechanics with beautiful looks, sounds and stories then getting praised while other developers who do exactly the same get slagged off.



Gamer83 said:


Well that's fine, I think the gameplay in ND's productions are very well done also, but to each their own, I'm not trying to convince anybody to agree with me and I'm certainly not going to 'abuse' anybody for having a differing opinion.

Just to put it out there, I'm no fanboy of any of these 3 companies. I prefer PlayStation but I criticize all 3 of these companies equally. If anything I've been harsher about Sony lately.



rastamadeus said:

@Gamer83 Oh I know, just like I don't expect anyone to agree with me. I'm just constantly surprised that if, say, we (gamers at large) criticise company x for doing something then company y has to be as well. Naughty Dog seem to get off scott free though.

Also, thanks to PSN user xSanosukeJP for the lovely message/attempt at abuse. So nice to see fanboys can't handle someone not liking a game they do.
