@TheSuburbanHero: It does seem like she was born after whatever it was happened or maybe still a baby as it was happening. Hmm, is he her father? I think it'd be interesting if they weren't related. I also think it'd be cool if we played as the girl. Shake it up, do something different.
Yeah, me too.
It would be interesting either way, at least to me. ND knows how to write a compelling story either way, after all, and it makes little sense that he would be her father anyway.
And YES! Playing as the girl would be interesting! I'm just not sure how people would respond to it. It's not like a JRPG or something where the situations are ridiculous to begin with. This would strike really close to home with some people. Personally, I think it would be awesome, but, I feel like they'd have to tread lightly. Mature themes involving young girls is a sensitive topic for a lot of people. Even subtle things, like dying. If these things are really out to rip you apart, I don't know how people will react to seeing that girl get ripped to shreds. Again, personally, I can handle it because I realize it's just a game. But do you remember people's reactions to the original Dead Island trailer?
Since this thread is about TLOU speculation and I've already posted my own speculations in the other thread, I'm just gonna quote myself:
The trailer looks awesome, the graphics are breathtaking, the gameplay seems smooth, the enemies are faster and apparently smarter than the average video game monsters, and the BEST part is that it's gonna be a THIRD Person Shooter!
I'm not a big fan of horror games though. I only played Silent Hill 2 and RE5. But I'll definitely be getting TLOU.
I wonder if it'll have an MP, I hope it will.
However, I'm worried about the future of U3 MP since ND will be very busy working on their new game so they won't have much time left for their game and for us, their fans; which is probably why they're sending us to PlayStation Forums. I'm also worried about the future of the Uncharted franchise in general because a new franchise might mean the end of the previous one. We probably won't be seeing Uncharted 4
PS. The last scene, where we can see the empty streets, looks very similar to I Am Legend
Apparently there's a trend towards making darker games, mostly horror, by game developers lately. Tomb Raider is taking the same root through its latest installment too. Crystal Dynamics are not making a new franchise, but they're adding a much darker touch to their existing franchise (since Dark Angel at least).
Anyway; it is a different team making this han Uncharted. I expect to see it next year. And I always expected Uncharted 4 to be a PS4 launch title, so I suppose we'll have to wait a bit now as that announcement does't appear to be coming anytime soon.

I'm trying not to get too angry or pessimistic about it as I don't know enough information to fully judge it.
All I can say is that I seriously hope that this does not completely dry up support for UC3's multiplayer. They have two teams working at ND, one for Uncharted and one for TLOU so I don't see why they should drop the MP support.

It seems to have a different development team so hopefully there will still be support for U3 and a possibility of U4.
People are saying it's 3rd person (crosses fingers and toes *please please please let it be 3rd person*) is there any confirmation on this or just speculation?
Looks very very cool and I'm sure as ever it will be a polished and addictive title from our Dogs!
Apart from my main concerns about support I will say that the title intrigues me.
They also said that they've worked on it for two years so far. It could be released next year which I'm fine with.
With a game of this caliber I'm hoping 3 years should get the game to be polished enough to offer a fantastic experience.
I hope it's in 3rd person, have platforming elements similar to Uncharted and of course offer a fantastic story.
I like that it's giving me vibes from "The Road" and "I am Legend" as well. It has potential.
First of all, I am very impressed by the trailer. A little sad that Uncharted 4 isn't coming soon, but at the same time happy Naughty Dog are doing something new.
What I do wonder is what will be similar and what will be different between Last of Us and Uncharted. Shooting mechanics, platforming etc. What about multiplayer? Will it have it? Will it be co-op only?
I hope there are a tonne of Uncharted easter eggs and references in the game!
