The Last Of Us Remastered 1080p Photo Mode Screenshots Shared by Naughty Dog Devs From their PS4s

by on July 26, 2014 3:30 AM 107

Yesterday Naughty Dog gave us the rundown of The Last of Us Remastered‘s photo mode, and the studio’s developers have already received their copies of the game. The result is that some of them have already started using the share button of their own PS4 to give us some example of the feature.

It’s the case of Multiplayer Designer Quentin Cobb, Artist Todd Forster, Senior Technical Artist Nathan Horne and Lead Cinematics Animator Josh Scherr, who just posted four pictures giving us a glimpse on the filters and frames which we’ll be able to use  to personalize our screenshots.

You can check them all out just below.

As an added bonus, we also get a lovely picture from the launch party of the game, portraying yummy Naughty Dog Cakes, courtesy of Web Developer Jason Paul.

And as a final bonus, to set the mood for the impending release, here’s a treat from Senior Game Designer Benson Russell, just to show you how a gajillion of copies of the game look like.

    People will be having fun with this. Guaranteed.

    • Not_true

      It seems some fanboys are very upset and angry that millions of gamers will be buying and enjoying TLOU Remastered. Sad.

    • Dynasty2021

      Reddit will be swarmed.

      “Check this awesome shot that is only slightly different to the past million posted.”

      • They Call Me Senpai

        Could you please cry a little quieter?

      • Victor Lavon Richardson

        Well seeing as how you can change the camera angle is multiple ways, add vignette filters, film grain, the depth of field and change the photo style as well as take a photo of yourself doing anything at any time during your 10+ hour adventure.. I can’t see many duplicates or similar photos being taken.

  • Alkaporty

    Never been that exited for a game I already played… 10 minutes ago.

  • PSIN4MANT

    Shame PSN didn’t offer preload.

    • BlackestNight63

      They already stated that TLOU was before the feature was implemented.

      • PSIN4MANT

        Yeah, cause opening up the digital stream a couple days before release, is a technological conundrum.

  • NeoTechni

    Wait. Ps4 does 1080p screenshots now? I find it pathetic Wii u takes native resolution screenshots before ps4

    • Jecht_Sin

      Native on Wii U as in 720p like in the PS3? Because the last time I checked all 1080p games on Wii U are upscaled. As well as this isn’t the first PS4 game taking 1080p in-game screenshots. Infamous SS has a photo mode at 1080p. FF XIV:ARR takes screenshots as well.

      Oh, and the Wii U came out an year earlier.

      • NeoTechni

        “Oh, and the Wii U came out an year earlier.”

        -Not an excuse when it’s a simple setting
        -I’m referring to how Nintendo adopted HD 2 generations behind Sony, yet managed to one-up them in one regard

        Wii U has 2 native 1080p games. So when Wii U fanboys say Wii U has more than PS4 (PS4 has 32 last time I checked) you can call them out on that lie.

        • Jecht_Sin

          And yet the PS3 managed to do that years before the Wii U. Also at 1080p I think, since it should be in GT5 and GT6 as well.

          Please name the two Wii U games at 1080p.

          • NeoTechni

            You say that as if I’m a Wii U fanboy.

            One was Rayman (a 2d sidescroller) Zelda: Wind Waker HD (a 2 generation old game that looked inferior to PSP games even then)

          • Jecht_Sin

            Well, I’ve got a bit annoyed by your initial statement about the screenshots.. It sounded quite fanboyish. But I see you misunderstood.

            You’re right about Rayman Legends (and Wind Waker I suppose), but I see now Rayman is 1080p60fps in all consoles (even PS3 and X360).

          • EM87

            GT5 and 6 are not really 1080p, they use weird ass resolutions like 1440×1080 that also cause heavy drop frames (or at least they did, don’t know if they were able to solve this with all the patches they released).

      • EM87

        Well not all of them (Smash, Wind Waker HD, Rayman Legends, MH3U and some eShop games are actually native 1080p) but yeah, Wii U does screenshots at 720p even for the 1080p games (they’re downscaled from the latter).

    • Alter

      oh bitch please, PSVita did it before Wii U even around.

      • NeoTechni

        True. But Vita’s resolution is 1/4 of 1080p. That’s easy.

        • Jecht_Sin

          It’s the same identical technology, genius.

          • NeoTechni

            It’s not the same bandwidth though, genius. 4 times the pixels takes 4 times longer. That’s why PS4 doesn’t take 1080p screenshots. It’s to save a bit of processing time/power

          • Alter

            You should compare PSVita and PS4 specs, PS4 is 20x more powerful if not more, handling 4x more pixels is just a child play.

          • NeoTechni

            True. But that was my point of why Vita shouldn’t be compared really.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Are you talking about streaming or screenshots?! Does the Wii U even stream? I dunno, just asking.

          • NeoTechni

            Well yes, but to the gamepad.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Well, I was asking about real time Internet streaming to Twitch or the likes.

        • Alter

          it’s easier to capture native screenshot and save it without downscaling, basically Sony did the extra length to save a bit hdd spaces.

          • NeoTechni

            Then explain why PS4 doesn’t take native resolution screenshots

            I’ll do it for you, it’s cause the video capture hardware already downscales it.

          • Guest

            tell me if it’s not 1080p, from the comment section of kotaku.
            http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/19870vsu3t2yajpg.jpg

          • NeoTechni

            1) Thank you. I prefer to be wrong in this case
            2) No need to post it twice. I won’t ignore evidence.
            3) How’d you get it off the PS4 when Kotaku said screenshots are downresed?

    • TallSilhouette

      PS4 has always done 1080p screenshots; just 720p for video.

    • skratchy

      Ah yes, one of the folks still trying convince themselves they bought a WiiU a year and a half ago for a reason.

      • NeoTechni

        If you knew me youd never accuse me of being a Nintendo fanboy. I have Nintendo fanboys that stalk me cause of how much I complain about Nintendo.

        Ffs. It was one complaint.

  • Alter

    Why do we even arguing over 1080p screenshot? LOL
    Even my old laptop can do 1080p post processing in a fraction of second.

    • Sage

      THE PIXELS MAN!!! T H E P I X E L S ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
      seriously though, if you care about it you’d already have a capture device to take your own native res screenshots.

    • Jecht_Sin

      Apparently it was a misunderstanding. :)

  • RealityCheck2013

    I wanted 4K Pics… :D :D :D WOW look at all those lovely PS4 TLoU:R boxes :P GIVE ME 1!!! ;) (the Cakes are cool to, well everything is)

  • Porcu Peth

    pre-loading please :(

  • naga

    Just got TLOU:R right now!!! I will play it right now and give you an update on how it feels for a new comer.

  • Rower

    The cake maker needs some kind of cake of the year award. Just saying!

  • Mitch

    If only it also had a SHAREfactory theme…

  • phar0ahad3

    Shout out to that joel selfie lol

  • rllintrllin
  • naga
  • starscream1180

    sorry but this is the easiest money theyve ever made, the differences are insanely minor , resolution bump and 60 fps noone will ever notice …either way this is a must buy for anyone who missed out on it last year.

    • Pandrew Ance

      sorry but that’s not true. if you switch to 30 fps in the options it’s a difference like heaven and hell. i would never play this game with 30 fps again. textures, lights, shadows … everything looks so much better now.

      • starscream1180

        u mean the extra shadows when you switch to 30fps?… i mean it looks better but if you played the ps3 version there isnt a wow factor, still a great game just thought theyd really do a nice overhaul with the new hardware.

      • Budgiecat

        too bad gameplay wasnt improved. A.I. is still dumb unlike they originally promised

        Also no mirror or water reflections for “oh so amazing graphics” ….yet a budget niche title: Deadly Premonition pulled it off lol

        • starscream1180

          wow deadly premonition …good oldie

        • They Call Me Senpai

          Too bad you’re completely wrong, as usual.

          • Budgiecat

            *nibbles your ear*

        • Not_true

          Stop spreading fanboy lies, FUD, and hatred.

          • Budgiecat

            Prove me wrong.

            Show me mirror and water reflection in this game.

            Show me A.I. moving more intelligently in-game than in the PAX demo.

            You can’t.

          • Not_true

            There are screenshots on neogaf of realtime water reflections in the game. You are a wrong, malicious, and lying shill.

    • superkarma

      I know. It’s almost as if they hit a button and all the work was done instantly. I mean, it’s not like they did anything else but bump the resolution and fps.

      • yardis

        I guarantee no one will get this.

        • Black Heaven

          Well, for one you got it… so your “no one” is already dismissed. :p

          • starscream1180

            i wish your response was a bit more clever.

            yikes.

          • Black Heaven

            Well, sorry to disappoint you with my clever response then.
            I lightheartedly followed along with his comment. No need to get so worked up for it.

            But he kinda has a point. Congrats for you getting the sarcasm, but you won’t believe the amount of people misunderstanding sarcasm in the net simply due to the internet having no vocal intonations.

            I’ll try to be a bit more clever with my comment then: I myself do not see resolution differences nor do I spend my time pointing them out. I play games and enjoy it. But there are those who do mind these differences and how it affects their experience. The devs worked hard to made it happen with the remastered, and it’s not simply the “set graphics from medium to high” as karma is sarcastically implying. You have been perceived as devaluing the efforts done by Naughy Dog and thus been replied in sarcasm.

            I hope my comment is a bit more satisfactory for you this time….

          • Budgiecat

            cash grab

          • They Call Me Senpai

            They’re definitely gonna be grabbing cash.

          • starscream1180

            now its too long..

            yikes

          • Black Heaven

            Wait wut? These few hundred words are too long?

            Got any better replies? I did try to engage in a civil discussion.

          • starscream1180

            ok so i read it , i respect your opinion i just strongly disagree.

            people have a hard time accepting others opinions on this site

          • Black Heaven

            Oh another reply. Disregard my other one just now then.

            (Editing…)

        • starscream1180

          do you kids really need to point out obvious sarcasm.

          • yardis

            1. I’m not a kid. 2. The internet does not understand this thing called sarcasm, so they need people like me to point it out. :)

          • starscream1180

            ::::facepalm::::::

      • starscream1180

        a basic remake like this is simple for naughty dog. have you seen the videos … its a sharper version of the game nothing crazy …infamous looks 10000 times better … this is a quick buck for them nothing else.

        • superkarma

          Totally, man. I mean, it’s not like nearly half of all PS4 owners didn’t get to play the PS3 version or anything. This is totally just a quick cash grab. Nothing else at all. Hardly any work went into this remaster.

          • starscream1180

            im glad you agree ;)

            p.s

            you and flat out wrong … you guys really must be on sonys payroll

          • superkarma

            Yeah, I guess stating facts and proving the trolls incorrect makes me a part of Sony’s payroll. No worries, though. I do this for free. Getting some good laughs at your expense is all I need. :)

          • starscream1180

            DITTO sir.

            delusions of grandeur

          • rllintrllin

            “Hardly any work went into this remaster”

            And you know this how? Did you work on the game? Anyhow you’re both wrong.

            http://www.edge-online.com/features/the-last-of-it-naughty-dog-on-bringing-the-last-of-us-to-ps4/

            How is it a cash grab if no one is forcing you to buy it? You both are morons. Keep hating and jerking each other off. You’re both so transparent, it’s pathetic.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Superkarma was being sarcastic, dude.

          • rllintrllin

            Hard to tell sarcasm from blatant trolling nowadays

          • starscream1180

            and yet you’re here.

            smh

          • starscream1180

            do you work in game design ? do you believe everything the internet says ?…watch dogs devs denied downgrading their graphics did you believe that as well?….

            open your eyes kid , when someone poses an opinion and your rebuttle is calling that person names , you automatically lost that battle.

            thanks for playing.

          • rllintrllin

            “Hardly any work went into this remaster”

            That’s an opinion? Really?

          • Jecht_Sin

            Never mind.. I see now it was posted below.

    • NeoTechni

      Insanely minor? Its literally double the resolution. Quadruple in 60 fps mode.

      • starscream1180

        when you play the game you dont stop and say wowwwwww look at those 60 fps ……

        • Антон Иванов

          Man, do you play games just to stare at the surroundings trying to distinguish 720p and 1080p? Then go watch movies, I guess your favorite one is Avatar

        It’s going to be a hell of a lot easier to spot those collectibles now.

  • DemonFenton

    FACT: People loved photo mode in Infamous: SS including myself. So why not do it for The Last of Us. I can see the rest of PS4 1st party titles from here on out having photo mode.

    • Dynasty2021

      Because it’s a genius idea thrown in to make console fans think their consoles are more powerful than they are.

      “Check out that detailz!!!!!….we’ve had since the late 2000s and are only just experiencing now on old hardware!”

      • superkarma

        And thus concludes the usual idiotic response from Dynasty2021, the pathetic PC elitist.

      • DemonFenton

        What’s your PCs specs than troll?

      • queb

        Here’s a novel idea: a game can be beautiful even if it is not running on the absolute best hardware in existence.

  • PrinceHeir

    That’s a lot of copies!

  • The Real Rick Grimes

    Best game ever created, period.. Followed closely by the original Bioshock.

    • Ice

      Play more games.

  • Giul Xainx

    I want to see another uncharted game on the ps vita. A lot of good stuff on that game never noticed by gamers. I would love to see a movie based on this game, but it should be based on Joel and his history as a hunter. I think that would shock a lot of people. The next game I hope it expands on what the evolution of the virus has started. Maybe less obvious infections?

  • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

    Oh man there’s a photo mode, ok I’m in.
