Uncharted 4 PSX Demo Looks Even Better In Color-Corrected Comparison, Now In Uncompressed Footage

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End opened the PlayStation Experience keynote with a bang. The long anticipated sequel was seen for the first time running live on the PlayStation 4 in front of thousands of attendants at the PlayStation Experience keynote. Bruce Straley, game director of Uncharted 4, was playing the demo live on stage.

If you were noticing washed out colors in the Uncharted 4 demo, it seems to be have been corrected now thanks to NeoGAF user Skux. You can check out a comparison between the original version and the color corrected version below.

If you want to download the uncompressed version of the footage, which has been color corrected, you can download it from this link. If  you want a much higher quality footage, you can download an uncompressed 3.81 GB version.

It has been confirmed that the game is still in pre-alpha stage, and the demo that was shown was running at 1080p and a locked 30 fps. Naughty Dog are currently optimizing the game so expect it to look even better in the final version.

What do you think about this Uncharted 4 demo? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Vincent Gilmore

    I’ve seen plenty of footage in a year, and it still looks damn good.

  • Counterproductive

    What?

    • Durka Durka

      what you mean what? digital foundry thhat makes this comparisons has said it doesnt look as good as the trailer. So yeah it has hapepned just accept it.

      • Counterproductive

        I mean “what?”, as in “I don’t understand what you’re talking about.”

        Also, you’re wrong. I accept that.

        • Durka Durka

          On what am i wrong?

          Quit troling twat.

          • Counterproductive

            The guy who calls me a “twat” tells me to stop “troling”.
            Just stop and think about that for a moment.

  • Anders Öhlund

    Yeah first thing I thought when I saw this demo was “someone messed up the levels on this one.. this is obviously using TV-levels in full luma range video”

  • OrangeBandicoot

    YOU PEOPLE OBSESSED OVER GRAPHICS WAY TOO MUCH! just play the game for sakes

  • Linh Nguyën

    Color-corrected? LMAO. 10 secs in and I see crushed black. No thanks.

  • ocelot boss

    Xbots are jealous because halo 5 looks like shit

  • ocelot boss

    Best game in everything

  • ezGenesis

    ND have never tried for ”Real world” ascetics, and have always done a great job of keeping away from the uncanny wally with a more cartoony art direction. Sure Ryse may have more detailed facial models, the lighting may well be an artistic decision.

    I have played all 3 games in the series and both Last of us, and I have never in my 30 years as a gamer been so sure of a developer’s capability of delivering a game of the year candidate. I personally love that they go for the more cartoony art direction, I’d rather have that than some rubbery attempt at real… 🙂

  • Russell Gorall

    30fps. Meh.

  • bruce livingston

    Looks incredible, better than anything else to date, and it’s in pre-alpha. This is how next gen is supposed to look.

  • Tha Truth

    This shows exactly why the third – place Poverty Box is in third place all the time and the PS4 is smashing it 2 – 1 in worldwide hardware sales. Xbox gets last – gen trash games like Halo: Multiplayer Not Working Collection and Ryse: Lack Of Draw Distance whilst PS4 gets mind – blowing adventure games like this.

    Uncharted 4 is in pre – alpha stage and already looks 10X better than any exclusive the Xbox One has ever had, suck it fanboys. PS4 getting the real games like Uncharted, Bloodborne and Tearaway while Poverty – Box gets nothing but lies, overhype and underdeliver that doom it to third place, PS4 has already won the generation, Trash – Box is dead.

    If Microsoft want their trashy, cheap, last – gen POS console to sell they might want to take a leaf out of Sony’s book and start making games that people actually want to play, not releasing trash like Halo, Gears, Forza and Fable that nobody cares about anymore.

  • PachterStation

    I can’t see the direction changing much. Cave and jungle scenarios it’ll be. Hope it’s more gritty and darker. Take away the cheesiness and replace it with ruthless game play and story line.

  • Fay_Z

    incoming… fanboys shifting the blame to video footage quality… wait for it.. wait for it….

    • JohnathynMorrow

      Do you guys not have lives? Go somewhere that people actually care what you say!

  • Durka Durka

    Looks better still downgraded

    • WOLF581

      better to have a downgarded game that beats every xbot game than a downgarded xbone that eats dust.

      please tell us what happen to all the “real time gameplay demos” from pre launch e3 of xbone ?

      ryse downgraded

      forza downgraded

      • Durka Durka

        You assuming i am a xbot.

  • GunsAndTheBeast

    What part of PRE-ALPHA do you guys not understand?? This is far off from even it being a Beta. It’s like eating an unfinished pizza and saying it needs more sauce. It’s not finished yet do you understand??? am i speaking english here seriously.

    • Durka Durka

      What part of naughty dog has done this multiple times did you not understand?

      Saying this is pre alpha is like saying that the e3 trailer we saw was faked a tech demo a target render and the game wont look like that EVER.

      Naughty dog always makes their games look worse in release, it wont look as good as e3 railer period.

      • ArcadiusHale

        Why do you feel the need to comment on every single mother f***ing post that praises Naughty Dog? Seriously? Get a freaking life! Because from where I’m sitting, you’re pretty pathetic.

    • BoyBigEyes

      Ignore then! All those who played uncharted since the beginning, know that is not finished yet just because the drake shirt, which was not wet after leaving the water. 😉 (no homo)

  • Guest

    Ryse characters look better, there’s more detail in the faces, the lighting is also better on Ryse as well.

    This really surprises me, Naughty Dog are actually behind the curve!!! This didn’t happen last gen, looks like Naughty Dog are going to be playing catch during this gen.

    • Tom

      Trolls like you make me laugh, lol, it is pre alpha one year away from release, the final version will be a lot more optimised.

    • GunsAndTheBeast

      Pre-Alpha.. “Do you understand the words that are comin’ outta my mouth!?”

    • rudero

      Do you have any good games that don’t move slower than drying paint to compare to uncharted? This level is about the size of the entire game of Ryse and you can only use the pc version to try to compare. Well, I’ll take slightly less face detail over 17fps any day of the week.

    • Gjr9

      One thing you forgot to mention. The gameplay in Ryse is garbage, repetitive cliche crap

      • Durka Durka

        cant say scripted interactive movie unchartd is brining gameplay in new grounds.

        • Gjr9

          Didnt say it did. Ones things for sure i’d take any UC game over ryse. Repetitive crap all at a glorious 17fps, brilliant!

    • WOLF581

      MY pc (Radeon R9 290&Core i7 3770) runs your ryse at 1080p / 60 fps ,i got deadrising too but i uninstalled it from day 1 …but you xbot fool it happens that i have a ps4 too and sony’s console is far better from yours so go eat doritos and troll else where

    • JohnathynMorrow

      Except that Ryse used per-rendered CGI; Uncharted 4’s cut scene are not. Also, if you look at the original model, you will notice that the only thing that is truly different about this character model is the shading. If you look at the texture of the clothes that he is wearing, you’ll notice that it is still equally detailed as the character model that they showed us during the PlayStation Experience. I honestly can see why everyone thinks that it is a downgrade. Ryse also used a shading technique that always highlighted the details of the character models. With Uncharted, Naughty Dog is trying to create a more realistic lighting effect. And another reason that Nathan Drake might look downgraded is because of the fact that the camera is so far away. But I can see your point. And I respect your opinion. But I for one trust Naughty Dog and am very excited about this new game! And as for your comment about Naughty Dog being above the curve, that is not entirely true. It’s graphics still did not compare to the graphical fidelity of games like Crysis 3 or Battlefield. But they were commended because they were very high quality on the PS3.

  • Kaiser X

    “Uncompressed Footage” has black crush , anyway the game looks good but i feel lighting is a little flat and lifeless.

    • Guest

      Yep, it’s a massive downgrade over what was shown at E3. There you could really see all the lighting reflect off of his own sweat. Textures have less depth now too and all that at only 30fps, it’s hilarious how underpowered the PS4 is and that render target was big fat lie.

      • Tomr

        This is a compressed you tube video you idiot, judge it when it comes out on an actual PS4 in full uncompressed 1080p.

        • Durka Durka

          there uncompressed videos on gamersyde you tool

      • EX+

        What part of PRE ALPHA do you not understand?

        • Durka Durka

          The part that naughty dog has done that before multiple times and their games never came out looking as good as the reveal and if this is pre alpha that means that it will never look as good as E3 becasue that traielr wasnt even game footage but a cutscenes teaser tech demo they put together to wow people.

          • EX+

            You have it backwards.
            Wait till E3 2015. These happens all the time. It happened with Infamous too.

          • Durka Durka

            LOL, are you series naughty dog has been downing that for years there is nothing to wait for, their games never look as good as the revelats, dont expect this to reach the e3 teaser visuals.

          • Counterproductive

            The Last of Us came out looking better.

          • Durka Durka

            Meh, not really, TLOU was ruined by the ai, which was amazing in e3 and crap in the actual game, no one called naughty dog on that one either.

          • Counterproductive

            Probably because that’s not true?

      • andy

        Yeah why isn’t there moonlight on the environment in that gameplay? Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr dumbass Xboner alert.

      • such.wow

        Idiot.

        • Durka Durka

          someone is mad at facts

          • such.wow

            What facts? Please, provide them.

          • Durka Durka

            go to dsogaming and see for yourself.

          • such.wow

            For what? In-game cutscene VS actual gameplay? If anyone thinks this is a massive downgrade, they are idiots.

          • Durka Durka

            Correction anyone who thinks the game looks like the e3 teaser is an idiot, yes there is a massive downgrade from that “cutscene” i dont know how to tell you this fanboy, but cutscenes ae not pre rendered but real time, the demo starts during nighttime with a CUTSCENE if you think that the graphics are the same as the E3 teaser, you need glasses.

          • such.wow

            You’re the one who needs glasses, suggesting a massive downgrade, complete idiot.

          • OrangeBandicoot

            idiot

          • Durka Durka

            digital foundry confirmed it doesnt, so that makes you an idiot.

          • OrangeBandicoot

            why the fuck do even play games if all you care is graphics ?

          • Durka Durka

            I dont, i am just proving wrong the fanboys.

          • Section8

            Wow. You’re an idiot.

          • Durka Durka

            You are the idiot for thinking that this game looks as good as e3, i watched both footage on 1080p, i could see every little detail and if you think that the begining area looks as good as e3, then you need glasses.

          • Midstr8

            e3 was zoomed in farther, it wasn’t even game play it was a cutscene, look at the last part of the trailer although its still not as zoomed in you will still see that it holds well to the detail showed at e3.

      • Creat1ve

        Comparing pre-alpha gameplay to what was obviously a pre-rendered teaser trailer. Real smart.

      • WOLF581

        xbot troll y dare to speak for downgrade your xbone is downgarded from launch day all ms games was running at high end pcs back then anyway you fiend post us here a gamevideo from your box thats better from un4 and i hope halo 5 or gow runs at 1080p 30 fps with better graphics from un4 for your sake….

      • You are flat out wrong

        Lionheart damage controlling with more butthurt and guest upvotes.

  • hesoyamdonMonster

    Didn’t ND promise that uc4 wil run 60fps and with insane graphic of that in shown in E3 trailer ? how come its running on just 30fps ? why make a false promise ?

    • BoyBigEyes

      Dumb!

      • hesoyamdonMonster

        ?

        • BoyBigEyes

          !?!

    • Guest

      Because poor dying $0N¥ = lies, overhype and underdeliver.

      • GunsAndTheBeast

        and you’re just another in denial fanboy whose going through an inferior complex.

        • Durka Durka

          You fanboys need to do some research naughty dog is OVERestimated.
          uncharted 2 and 3 were downgraded and didnt look as good as the trailers
          and TLOU ai was butched and wasnt as good as e3.

          Wake up already you falling for lies.

          • CernaML

            Yet they were still some of the highest rated games of last generation. 🙂 Something you cant say for your platform of choice due to its irrelevancy.

          • Durka Durka

            No one argues rating, gone home got high ratings too and everyone hates it.

            Lol how is pc irrelevant? Its morepowerfull than ever with the most games most dev support and highest revenue.

      • Tha Truth

        Buy a console you worthless fucking scrub, you obviously don’t have one, sales prove that. Your peasant mother is too poor to buy you the Xbox you keep crying for so you spend your entire pathetic existence trolling on the internet.

      • You are flat out wrong

        And here’s Lionheart, desperately clinging to his delusion while crying because his butthurt and underintelligence overdelivers.

      • Linh Nguyën

        You again, “Guest” who can only troll behind anonymity.

    • GunsAndTheBeast

      1st, pre-alpha, 2nd it was doubtful it’s gonna make it to 60fps, but graphics wise will get lot better. Don’t underestimate Naughty Dog.

      • Durka Durka

        “dont understimate naughty dog”

        lol what?

        You fanboys need to do some research naughty dog is OVERestimated. uncharted 2 and 3 were downgraded and didnt look as good as the trailers and TLOU ai was butched and wasnt as good as e3.

        Wake up already you falling for lies.

        • JohnathynMorrow

          You guys are ridiculous! YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THE GAME WILL LOOK LIKE WHEN IT COMES OUT!!! IT MAY LOOK IDENTICAL TO THE E3 FOOTAGE OR NOT!!! WHY DO YOU CARE ANYWAY? YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BE PLAYING IT!!! YOU JUST HERE TO GLOAT ABOUT HOW RIGHT YOU ARE!!! IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO MOVE OUT OF YOUR MOTHER’S BASEMENT AND FOR YOU TO GET A LIFE!!!!!!!!

        • Vincent Gilmore

          Are you seriously trying to start an argument with everyone? Haha, wow, so sad.

    • such.wow

      No they didn’t. They said they were aiming for 60fps, then promised nothing.

    • hoyyoyo1

      Did you not fucking read its in the Pre alpha stage and did you not notice the transition to the cut scene into gameplay you dont even notice the character model changing it look just like it did in e3 just the fact that there was no water

      • hesoyamdonMonster

        What the hell do you mean, there was plenty of water! The gameplay had more water than the e3 trailer ! If the game isnt ready, then why in the first place show e3 trailer and calming that,” it was running really time and the gameplay will look like the cut scene !”Bullshit! Why did ND showoff something that was never ready.

        I have been following UC4 from the beginning of it announcement, it was very clear ND was confident that the game will run 60fps but it looked nothing like the e3 trailer . I could have actually believed UC4 was running on a ps3.lol. Its what ubisoft is recently doing; fooling gamer by showing an extremely good looking game that will never-be, not even in the high end pc.

        I have spent more than $100s on ND games and i have very much the right to give my opinion, i just don’t want them to lie. I don’t mind if the game cant run 60fps at high graphic setting , they got to tell us the right information. Never before than 6th December they announced in twitter that the game was pre alpha, once they found gamers were pretty upset at them.

        Before staring the game they could have given us a headstart, that it was pre alpha version, at-least our expectation could have been lowered. I was very dissapoted with the over all game. ND, thank you for trusting your words, i never expected this form them, a cheap trick.

    • Jeffrey B

      Pre-Alpha,Demo,superb AI,Great Level Design..and have the qualities of a released game version. they lock it to 30 for a stable presentation. they have one year for optimization

  • dave

    Game looks stunning for a pre-alpha version a year away from release, trust ND to make the final product even more polished.

    • Durka Durka

      You fanboys need to do some research naughty dog is OVERestimated.
      uncharted 2 and 3 were downgraded and didnt look as good as the trailers
      and TLOU ai was butched and wasnt as good as e3.

      Wake up already you falling for lies

      • JohnathynMorrow

        Is that why Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us were the universal games of the year upon their releasing? Because that is a fact––not an overestimation!

        • Durka Durka

          Does the fact that they were downgraded change the overall quality of the game? NOPE, infact no one even called naughty dog on their bs with the tlou ai that was amazing in E3 and crap on release.

          Just admit it was downgraded and move on.

          • Vincent Gilmore

            Stop acting like your opinion is higher than everyone else’s. Seriously, you’re making yourself seem like a moron. People LOVE the games, you obviously don’t, so fuck off.

          • Durka Durka

            Where did i say the game is bad in any way shape of form?

            Yes fanboys LOVE the games, the company who makes them and everyone in them and so they cant accept critisism and go full rage mode when their beliefes are questioned.

            i even said that you idiot, the downgrade doesnt change the quality of the game, so maybe you and those people who have far more love for something than logic should “fuck off”

          • Vincent Gilmore

            Or maybe you should fucking grow up and leave the page? I didn’t say you said the game was bad, so yeah. Who gives a shit about the logic? It’s. A. Fucking. Game. You want to play it, play it. You don’t, then don’t. Jesus dude, it’s not that hard to understand.

          • Durka Durka

            perhaps YOU should grow up instead and stop being so BUTTHURT about an opinion in the internet.

          • Vincent Gilmore

            “It’s. A. Fucking. Game. You want to play it, play it. You don’t, then don’t.” Doesn’t sound butthurt to me.

            “People LOVE the games, you obviously don’t, so fuck off.” I can see how that sounds butthurt, but it isn’t. All i’m saying in that is if you don’t like it, then don’t play it. Sitting around and bashing it or complaining about it won’t help at all.

            So learn what is and what isn’t butthurt.

          • Durka Durka

            and what is your opinon on fanboys who damage control for a company?

            Surelly if its just a game you opinion on those will be that they are freaking insane and got no lives.

          • Vincent Gilmore

            It’s really none of my business and isn’t relevant so.

          • Durka Durka

            Well that is EXACTLY why made that post for those idios who act like fanboys and damage control and thik sony can do no wrong and the game would look EXACTLY like the trailer despite that the trailer was not actual gameplay

            So you insulted me for no reason.

      • WOLF581

        better to have a downgarded game that beats every xbot game than a downgarded xbone that eats dust.

        please tell us what happen to all the “real time gameplay demos” from pre launch e3 of xbone ?

        ryse downgraded

        forza downgraded
        p.s back to my smashbros,mk8,mario3d,bayoneta 2 and pes 15,gtav,last of us remastered
        oh and some ultra street fighter just to polish my skills for my EXCLUSIVE SFV

        now explain us please why yr xbone is downgraded hahahaha

        • Durka Durka

          I dont own a xbox, i am a pc ps gamer. I accept that this is downgraded unlike some idiots that will never admit that this doesnt look as good as 3 and screamed “whoever thinks the game wont have these graphisc is a xbot or pc elitist”
