This panel, which comes from last week's PlayStation Experience show, has the Naughty Dog team talking about how they drafted the newest Nathan Drake model. In short, there was a lot of thought put into the new Nathan Drake. It's fascinating to hear them talk about how they chose his costume, how they obsess over details like folds and creases, his wrinkles, and even getting Drake's half-tuck juuust right.

The video is about an hour long, but it's definitely worth a watch if you're at all interested in the game.

The detail here is staggering:

I'm glad they're accounting for his age. It's not EXTREMELY drastic, but it's obvious. As in, it isn't Metal Gear Solid 4 Snake where Nathan Drake is raiding tombs while commandeering an electric wheelchair. The animations in the gameplay clip they streamed looked AMAZING. One thing I love about exclusive is that they can devote all of their resources to maximizing potential on one platform, as opposed to settling for the lowest common denominator.
