100% of what? everything, so it's going to overheat and explode? Unless the game is seriously power consuming and makes use of all ps3's capabilities i doubt it will come anywhere near 100%.

Ahahaha I was just about to say the same thing.

This is totally ridiculous, there is no way that it is going to use that much from the PS3. Because if it did it would probably crash left and right, that or create a time space paradox that would spawn flesh-eating morloxs.

Devs always say this in order to make us think it's going to be the greatest thing in the universe. There is no way it will use 100% of the PS3's power... what they should say is that "they're using 100% of the PS3's power(THAT IS ACCESSIBLE AT THIS TIME)." I loved Uncharted so I know it's going to be awesome but common devies! We're not dumb!

i hate when people talk about this, because none of have the slighted understanding of ps3 development. ps2 games like god of war 2 probably only used about 60%, its all about how you utilize it all. i

Who cares. As long as the game is good I am happy. I have no doubts about it though. I am an Uncharted fanboy though so whatever I say probably doesn't mean anything.

Just because a game uses 100% of a systems power doesn't mean it's gonna look or play all that much better. It depends on how efficiently the game can use the power available to the system. Basically very well made game could look at play better that uses 70% of the power, compared to a crappily made game using 100% power.

We've heard these percentages used before, and most of the time, it's all hype, and in the end, it doesn't live up to it. Uncharted 2 will look fantastic, just like the original, but don't expect it to max out the power inside of the PS3. From the screens I saw in Game Informer, Killzone 2 already looks better.

I fully believe any company that wants to can tell any system to crank up the number of clock cycles and use sheer power. But the truly magnificent games would use all of the power and efficient coding and a full understanding of the system architecture before you could really call it "100% of the power".

So, no this is just hogwash talking trash like every developer for every system does.

Guarantee there will be bigger and better games for the PS3 in the future after Uncharted 2.

Can someone explain to me how anyone can say they're using (insert precentage here) of a console's power, if they don't know the full power capacity of a console in the first place? Don't you need to know the beginning and end, before you can say where you are in a range or are they just assuming?

Doubt it,the old playstation head guy Ken whatever he called said it wont be until around 2012 until a game comes out that uses full power as it such a beasty machine,Dont forget resident evil 3 was the first playstation game to use full power and that was towards the end of the stations life cycle and it was supposed tobe easy to develop for that and back then they were used to consoles doubleing in power(8 bit to 16 to 32 and so on)With the PS3 it entered a whole new ball park,I remember one estimate stating that the PS3 was 1000 times more powerful than a PS2(this was back in the day when they were testing it by having it run city blocks to see how it could cope with data,so the estimate might be rubbish)
