Seriously, am I the only who thinks "The Last of Us" looks terrible by any PC-based standards?
"Terrible?" I don't think the game looks terrible by any standards. Obviously it doesn't meet the fidelity levels of the best looking PC titles, but that's pretty elite company and a very short list to begin with.

The article states the explanation. The gameplay (input, not video) was recorded and the rendering was offloaded (read: it was not rendered in real-time). This can easily be done with the SDK, as it is not rendering in real-time. Not only that, but it's actually the technique ND used to render the cutscenes in-engine (but not in real-time).

So how exactly was this video made, bearing in mind that the final shipping game categorically runs at 30FPS? No concrete answers were forthcoming from Sony PR, but the chances are that something akin to the multiplayer game's Cinema Mode was used to record gameplay, which was then dumped out of the system in an offline render. So how does it look? As you would expect, really: magnificent.

Been a good while since I read the article so i couldn't remember, pretty interesting.

Glad to know this is making it to next gen. If I ever get a PS4 (which I probably won't due to the monthly fee it has now) I will get this game.

Monthly fee? You mean PS+? You know you get free games every month with that right? Im swimming in free games for my Vita, PS3, and PS4 right now.

If you want good console servers with decent speeds and loaded with features, unless you are on PC you need to pay. And you only have to pay for multi player. The Last of US is single player. The best part of it anyway. Find a good game or two on PS Plus and it pays for itself every year.

So happy about the Last of US on PS4. Now we need Uncharted, God of War, Metal Gear Solid, and Street Fighter IV.

These two I know are coming at least! And if you really need to scratch that MGS itch Ground Zeros is quite fun.

It looks terrible. Screenshot (Click to show)
Every texture is blurry, the car doesn't even have transparent windows, the railing thing literally 2ft from the characters isn't even casting shadows, the terrain is incredibly flat (did they even normal map?), the awning on the right is horrific, especially those wood... things holding it.
Screenshot (Click to show)
That car texture, those shadows, the 5-foot LOD distance....

Don't be fooled - the game looks pretty terrible the entire time. The cutscenes are the one exception (still not great), and that's only because the designers could control exactly where the camera was looking - thus being able to flip models to higher quality meshes as needed.

There's literally tons of games that look significantly better, that were available at the same time:
Crysis series
Witcher 2
Metro series
ARMA 3
Half Life 2/ Cinematic Mod (might not count, it's a mod)
Battlefield 3 SP
etc.

I'd argue that a PC game that is equal to TLOU's graphics is PayDay2. Screenshot (Click to show)

The textures are OK, the lighting is ok, the models are half decent. It's nothing stunning, but it's not BAD. But then again, no one has ever claimed PD2 was a great looking game. It's pretty average (it's crazy fun though).

The game's art makes up for the PS3 level graphics but it can always look better.

That first screenshot doesn't loot terrible to me. Perfect? Certainly not, but there's a pretty wide gap between that and "terrible" imo. For all it's lacking, it does have DoF and some form of AA applied. I've seen worse in my recent playthrough of ME3 (ugh).

So basically, a handful of high-end PC games? Like I said that's pretty elite company.

After seeing the visuals from Infamous, I'm excited to see what ND can do on the PS4 personally.
