    Yeah, you know Naughty Dog had 2 internal teams? The one doing Uncharted 3 is either drinking heavy after finishing the game, went to a Tibetan monastery or changed their profession to prepare for a musical starring fogs and goats.

    A pity that ND dint use their second team to work on an yet unannounced PS4 game instead

    Yeah, there is some speculation about ND showing a new IP for PS4 at E3, but i don't think we'll see anything from them until 2014/15.

    I love it that LoU is coming to ps3 instead of 4. It's nice to see what experienced devs pull off with a platform once they are very confortable with it, and a longer schedule. This is going to be among the ultimate best looking and most technically acomplished games of the whole gen. In ps4 it would be impressive when lauched, and look funny and dated 6 months after that.

    The original release date was May 7th, over a week ago. If its going gold now, I'm not sure what your confusion would be about the delay?

    The demo is set for May 31st.

    They have been super quiet publicly about MP, but recently tweeted about the playtesting they've been doing.

    The "promises" game journalist imagine up never cease to amaze me. They're also typically the first to criticize said companies for "breaking their promises". They seem to be confusing the instant demo streaming from Gaikai (future plan) to the PlayGo progressive download feature (immediate - intermediate goal).

    Sorry, that type of thing really annoys me. Anyway, quite surprising that they're trying this with the PS3 given its discrete download and decompression/install procedures. I'm going to guess that they're not changing that, and perhaps simply downloading and then installing the first half, and then treating the remaining half as some DLC is handled now (ie relatively transparently).

    EDIT

    For my own reference, I went back to check what was actually said:

    PlayGo
    Gaikai Demos:
    Distinction was pretty clear (especially with the slides providing further context of purchases vs demos) just as I remembered it. Appologiies again for going off on a tangent. :p

    They first download 50% of the game, most likely meaning actual code and most of the assets for first levels. (Or the full game without developer commentary videos. ;))

    Is there a difference in performance between the digital download fully installed game and the BD version?

    Do we know if it possitively affects game performance, i.e. framerate?

    Furthermore, I thought that modern PS3 games use BD and HDD simultaneously to maximize bandwith...so maybe a pure HDD installation has less performance?

    no, unless they have done something really stupid.
    HDD is usually used as cache for BD, if something is in HDD cache it's loaded from there.
    BD has long seek time and combination of BD+HDD is most likely always slower than just using HDD.
