With the success of HD collections and remakes on the PlayStation 3, and all the buzz surrounding the upcoming release of The Last of Us Remastered, it was only a matter of time before discussions starting floating around about giving PS3 games a fresh coat of paint on the PS4. The Uncharted games are an obvious choice for the royal 1080p/60fps treatment but don’t take our word for it, just ask Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida.
In a recent discussion with Eurogamer about the success of the PS4, Shuhei pointed out that, “almost 50 per cent of people who have purchased a PS4 didn’t own a PS3, and that’s lots of people that missed exclusive PS3 titles like The Last of Us.”
Shuhei went on to note that, “there are requests from some consumers for games that were released later in the generation, like Uncharted, which people might have missed.” But while he agreed that Uncharted is, “a good candidate,” he was also quick to point out that, “we don’t want to flood the market with remade games either.”
While the PS3 Uncharted titles being worthy of a PS4 remastered collection is pretty apparent, it does make you wonder what might come after that. Mass Effect? Red Dead Redemption? What else?
