On June 2, 2011, the official title for the game was unveiled as Golden Abyss, and numerous hands-on previews of the game were released across several sites. This was the first public appearance of the game since its unveiling in January. Prior to the announcement though in May 2011, it was rumored that the game’s title would be Uncharted: Golden Abyss, before any official announcement from Sony. The game features touch and motion based controls for navigation and aiming, though these are optional control schemes. The game has been developed by Sony Bend Studio, who are being overseen by Naughty Dog. A brief gameplay demo has been shown. The game has an optional touchscreen control feature and motion sensitive controls. In a demo at E3 2011, it was shown that weapons can be picked up and reloaded by tapping the weapon icon on-screen. Bend studio creative director John Garvin has confirmed that Naughty Dog allowed them to use their mo-cap and voice over studios. It has been confirmed the game will contain over 2 hours of cutscenes. The game doesn’t run on the full resolution of the OLED screen of the Vita (960 x 544), instead it runs about half the native resolution (720 x 408)
