Watch The PAX Prime Demo Of The Last Of Us

This month at PAX Prime, Naughty Dog showed off the riveting, behind-closed-doors E3 trailer of The Last of Us. If you weren't at either event, you can now see the full 16-minute demo here. We promise you it was worth the wait.

I only saw the public demo Naughty Dog showed for The Last of Us at E3, so this one was completely new to me, and serves as a stark reminder for why PS3 owners are so excited for the game. While the environmental puzzles look like standard fare, Naughty Dog has done a remarkable job of humanizing Joel and Ellie's enemies, which makes the already visceral combat even more brutal.

I'm still amazed at how dynamic all of the animation seems – we'll have to wait until we get our hands on the game to see just how orchestrated these live demos are, but so far the game is looking great.

For more of The Last of Us, check out the trailer Naughty Dog showed at Gamescom.

  • Too bad i don't have a PS3

  • Got to hand it to naughty dog, they know how to make one hell of a game!! (Jak and Daxter)

  • This is going to be goodt!

  • I cannot wait. I'll be quite excited to check this out with my headset as well.

  • If enemy encounters are going to be that tense when we get our hands on it, this game is gonna be INSANE.

  • I know this is a silly thing to nitpick, but they spent three minutes of this demo looking for a ladder to climb onto a staircase that was completely accessible via the bars attached to the wall? That just seems like dumb environmental platforming to me.

    If the platform isn't accessible, don't put climbable objects near it!

  • having bought my PS3 last july, this is one of the reasons i got one, i love naughty dog!

  • is the girl a playable character in co-op? if she is, pre-order will be placed, if not, then i can just wait a few months until the game gets cheap, ahh the effect of a budget.
  • This looks fantastic.

  • Dang! This game looks so good!

  • Looks amazing, just watching the video sucked me into the atmosphere. Can't wait to play.

  • I so cant wait to get this game.

  • Anyone think Joel might encounter the Infected down there.... in the damp, dark underbelly of the hotel?
  • tell me again why I decided to sell my PS3? TELL ME!! TELL ME NOW!!!
  • I am very excited for this game, and cannot wait!!!

  • Man this game just keeps looking better and better. I love how there's more than one way to go about getting through a level.

  • If they stick to just having a story, then this game will be great. Sorry, but Naughty Dog cannot do multiplayer right. And also I don't like that girl character, she's just a little annoying....but whatever. The game otherwise looks nice, and I may be picking this up.
  • This game looks amazing. If only I had a PS3... One day though. I am planning to get one soon. I want God of War, Uncharted, InFamous and now definitely this.

  • Glorious...

  • 15 minutes!? I am so ready to hunker down and experience awesome!
