I want nothing to do with extended previews for this game (I think I've already seen enough), yet - I'm heavily intrigued.

I haven't been this excited for a PS3 game since Heavy Rain.  Let's hope it doesn't leave me disappointed like Heavy Rain.

It's a Naughty Dog game, you won't be disappointed.   :)

Cover Art:



Some background on this one:  Apparently there's been some "issue" regarding the prominence of the Ellie character on the cover:

From an interview with Creative Director Neil Druckmann / Actor Annie Wersching – "Tess" / Actor Ashley Johnson - "Ellie" 

Quote
There have been some concerns over box-art recently – including Ken Levine’s admission that the BioShock Infinite cover has been engineered to target ‘frat boys’ – so I asked the group if they had any suggestions as to why we see so few females on game covers – aside from stereotypical imagery, of course.
 
“I feel like they don’t put women on the covers because they’re afraid that it won’t sell. It’s all gamers really know – and I don’t want to be sexist by any means – but I get the feeling, generally, that they think games won’t sell as well with a woman on the cover, compared to some badass dude on the front.”
 
“I agree with what Ashley said,” Druckmann added. “I believe there’s a misconception that if you put a girl or a woman on the cover, the game will sell less. I know I’ve been in discussions where we’ve been asked to push Ellie to the back and everyone at Naughty Dog just flat-out refused.”

[Full Interview]

It's simple human conditioning.  As a culture, men are favored protagonist in most mediums.  It's not necessarily sexism, it's social psychology.

With that said, it does make female protagonist a welcome and refreshing change.  It's why I almost always choose female characters when given the option.

Kudos to Naughty Dog for taking the risk on the cover art.  Hopefully it doesn't deter attracting would-be buyers browsing the store shelves, unfamiliar with the game's trailers and hype.

This could probably be the first "Special Edition" I might spring for on the PS3.  :D
