If The Last of Us: Remastered is any indication Sony seems fond of the idea of re-publishing the latest PS3 games on PS4, and something possibly ousting a PS4 version of Beyond: Two Souls has emerged.
Not sure how I feel about this game getting a remastered version. I enjoyed it, but just doesn't seem like a title that really should. Though I guess if there's a demand
i want to try it on PS4 .. i never get the chance to try it on PS3 :)
I can understand people like you who haven't played this game wanting to play it on PS4, but in terms of Sony....i don't get why they would do this. The Last Of Us getting a remaster is understandable, it was a massive success and will most likely sell even more PS4's. But this game isn't even remotely as successful as TLOU. What exactly would be the point of bringing this to PS4? I'm all for bringing the crème de la crème of late last-gen, to current gen consoles, especially if there is high demand from fans.....but imo, this game isn't the best of the best of last gen.... i just see this as unnecessary.
Beyond: Two Souls & LOU PS4 Remastered bundle would've been better for $60.
@Lukas Beyond Two Souls did sell well over a million copies, so Sony obviousy deems it as another successful new IP http://uk.ign.com/articles/... In anycase both TLOU and BTS were using PS4 techniques so it's a no brainer to port it over and beef up the PS4 library. Those who haven;t played it yet will appreciate it for what it is. Those of us who have played it will simply move on. @ badboy 776 A Beyond Two Souls / TLOU remaster bundle would be an absolute steal at $60. A great idea, but I can't see Sony bundling them together.
I rented it. It was okay. You have to be in the mood to appreciate this game. Played more like an interactive movie. Slow paced.
Called it. Expect more recycled games.
Honestly, the three big first party exclusives that came out summer or later 2013... if Sony has just pushed them to ps4 in the first place then no xbot could utter those more false words of, "ps4 has no games." Seriously, 3 big exclusives for ps3 released within 5 months of ps4 (tlou, beyond, gt6). It's their business; I'd rather not see them go under, so port away.
Agreed, I never tried it on PS3 since as the PS4 was beginning to release I kind of stopped getting PS3 games, so ones that came out in that grey area for me are perfect to see re-released. I just prefer being on my PS4 due to how much smoother and faster everything works in the os.
Typing on my phone, but this is my view, anyway. Its clear Sony has not got the money to bring lots of first party games to the PS4. I expect some new games from thier studios at E3, but it will be on the light side Remastering old titles means Sony is worried about having no games. Rumors Microsoft will remaster halo2 but Sony is going forward with it on a larger scale.
Lol! Sony seems to want to add a few summer fillers to its line up, Beyond:2S has sold over a million copies despite it's mixed critical reception. It seems likely for them to do this since Beyond: Two Souls Engine was actually built on PS4, Cage did say that Quantic had PS4 kits before most 3rd party devs had it, way back in 2012 when Kara tech demo was announced at GDC... And what they showed with the Dark Sorcerer was just mind blowing and it was Basically the beyond two souls engine running raw and unoptimized. I would be surprised if they ported this to PS4 to fluff the summer drought. The game already looked like an early PS4 game! I was actually surprised how visually arresting this game was when I played it. I'll pass on this one though if it's announced! I'm waiting on Their next game which I'm sure will lead to their acquisition to becoming first party for Sony!
I really didn't like this game, but for those that never played it and want to give it a go it is a good game, just wasn't my cup of tea, my reasons for not liking it are bit picking, but the jumping around just killed it for me, and some parts were like why was this in the game. I don't want to get into specifics, as I don't want to give any spoilers, but enough of this remastering every game, let's get some new content already.
If this is true then DragonKnight did call it. On one hand we had a lot of people here on N4G saying BC for consoles wasn't important and they would rather play new games on a their new system. But now having these companies repackage these old games and sell them for 50-60 bux is okay? I would rather they added BC for consoles if it meant this. These games (Beyond, TLoU) aren't even considered old and are getting the re-mastered, re-release treatment. And even if this game sold a million doesn't make it a success considering the reviews it got and not knowing how much production cost. Getting William Dafoe and Ellen Page to voice probably cost what this game made in sales.
games need a shelf life, it's not all about day1 sales, and with last gen ending extended sales will be poor, also the PS4 has a larg chunk of non-PS3 owners so they constitute a new market. @maniacmayhem like I said the PS4 has a large base of gamers who never had a PS3 and never had the chance to play exclusives, this is the target market, it actually makes more sense Sony do this than an already multi-platform last generation game like Tomb Raider/GTA5 that were on 360/PS3/PC.
wow look at all the amazing ps4 support,first last of us and now beyond! The ps4 library is definitely beefed up, fingers crossed for lair remastered AND WHO COULD FORGET HAZE REMASTERED, if that happens then the ps4 library is PERFECT!
I don't get what the big deal is...If you want to play these games on the PS4,then play them...If you don't want to then don't play them...Why do some seem so outraged about this...
Exactly, I really don't see why this is an issue. The resources expended are minimal, as it'll only be a remaster-so it's not as if a AAA will be canned. More of these remasters should be more than welcome for those who never owned a PS3. For those who think it's too expensive, or shouldn't exist at all, don't lose sleep over it; it's bolstering your console's library, which means more games for those new to PS and isn't meant for you (unless, like me, you were a fan of the game and want to collect it with its highest possible fidelity, just like my albums and movies). If this is commercially viable, they will release it, if it's not then they won't. It's all pretty simple. It annoys me how people consider it some sort of ruse or con-job; People will vote with their wallets, so whether these REMs are worth the money is largely irrelevant. Should Skinny Puppy have re-released CF&M for £10? But that's twice what the album cost 30-years ago? Yes, yes they should. Because I for one don't own a record deck. P.S @quickdraw sorry for repeating some of your comment, I didn't see it there lol
add me to the list of rebuyers
My view on this repackaging issue is that I dont think it costs studios a lot of time to up the resolution of a game, so that means they generate extra sales by reselling the game. Financially it makes sense. I didnt pick this up for the ps3 so I will get it when the price (if it's $60) drops. I wouldnt pay full price for the same game thats available on the ps3 even though I would rather play it on my ps4.
Same here have lots of games on my plate, and never played it, so I'd get it.
You took the words out of my mouth. The Last of Us is getting remastered and I'm fully behind it because of how great the game is and the demand for it on the PS4 is second to none. Don't have anything against this game but how much more can it offer on the ps4? I feel if they do remaster this game or any of the Uncharted/God of war ones then it will obviously be a quick cash grab. In my opinion, they simply don't need to be remastered.
No I did not like this game, I do not want it. Well, it was ok, but doesn't warrant a remake. If they do I think they need the money to pay the actors that were in it :D
In regards to TLOU Remastered, fans wanted this. Naughty Dog revealed that they didn't even start this until a while after the PS3 version was released, and they seen the fan reaction. I don't know if fans wanted a Beyond Two Souls PS4 game. I'm sure it will be pretty awesome, but maybe a bit unneccessary. That being said, it would probably be too tempting for me not to pick it up. If they're remastering all the PS3 exclusives that came out around PS4's launch, then they may as well do God of War Ascension. Imagine Kratos at 1080P, 60FPS.
Wasn't a huge fan I would rather quantum dream make another game as good as heavy rain
"quantum dream"? :P
He means Quantum Leap https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I'd rather see QD take the concepts of the Kara video and make that into a game.
Kara Demo was such a great demo video, I so agree with you.
i would rather see sony change the name of the ps4. Ever heard of the SEGA MASTER SYSTEM? The ps4 should be called SONY REMMASTERED SYSTEM
I would have been happier for this including Heavy Rain remastered as well, but I'll take what I can get. I never played Beyond. Feel I should though.
I think it's definitely a good addition to PS4's roster of games. Aside from beinga an exclusive, sure, this game had some lows, but it had several highs (specially technically) and those were amazing. Plus, Jodie is a wonderful female protagonist. Ellen Page did a great job.
Unless this remastered game, and others announced, are to be offered with PSN+, I have absolutely no interest in them. It's just a wast of resources that Sony could be using to produce new games.
It is low cost and high profit for them. There is a huge audience that have switched from xbox 360 and did not own a PS3 and would have wanted to play TLOU, Beyond etc. It will fund other games by Naughty Dog and Quantic dream. This is no different then Xbox 360 remasters of Halo and Fable and now for Xbox One is doing Halo 2 apparently. If it cost $10 million to remaster for example and they sell 1 million copies that's about $60 million sales at retail. They probably had it planned from the start and already have it ready to go without lots of extra work. It's a smart use of limited resources and maximize the profit if you consider it this way. It's no different from re-releases and Game of the Year releases.
Costs very little. Takes an indie sized team a few months to do it.
They should make it more comprehensive.
better graphics won't fix the over-acting, shallow character development, and 2 dimensional 'gameplay', but better than nothing! the visuals definitely stretched the ps3 to the max, so having it run a bit smoother and all might be welcome... there are a good bunch of people who really love that game though, and that might be enough to compel QD/Sony to try re-releasing it. maybe they'll even 'director's cut' it or something. an even more brilliant strategy would be to make it a double feature: heavy rain + beyond remastered on ps4. now THAT might actually sell...
I pretty much feel the same about any PS3 game. This is great for new gamers, but I don't care about any of these money grabs. I can tell this generation will milk the 'remastered' thing even more than last generation. I would much prefer they concentrate on new content.
Well, I guess they can go back and remaster some areas, but character models are as good as it gets.
There's nothing that can't be improved :D Just look at what QD did with the last sorcerer demo.
yea, but we're talking remastering a game, not really remaking it to look like The Last Sorcerer. I guess the one thing they can go back to is add a bit more polygons on NPC characters. Improve the hair? I don't know really, maybe unseen content or an uncut version...did I just say "uncut" version? Hmmmm.....
Or the Kara demo for that matter.
Lol. I see where you're going with the "uncut version", but I think Ellen Page has already threatened to sue Sony over those leaked images 0.o
Honestly, I think it may have been a publicity stunt. I doubt there really is any bad blood between Page and Sony.
What I though the media leaked those and Sony threatened to sue so her image wouldn't be damaged, while also protecting the game she starred in.
God of War Ascension is next.
Well if this gets a remaster I will pick it up on PS4 as I never played it on PS3, I loved Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain.
Heavy rain was epic. I absolutely loved it. I haven't played this game yet so I might pick it up. Edit: I wonder if this was gonna be an E3 announcement. That would suck if it was.
heavy rain and beyond two souls should come on one disk for ps4.
I'd buy that
Agree! I loved Heavy Rain. For me I just didn't get as into the plot for Beyond, it felt much more fixed as if my action didn't really effect the outcome much which was What I loved about HR. I'd buy them if they were both on a PS4 collection though!
Looked to see if this was DS4 compatible for the PS3 not on any list i've seen so its very possible it could be DS4 support for the PS3 version.
DS4 support in games it not explicit, just incidental. If the controllers were to be compatible they'd be patched to the OS rather than on a game specific basis.
It was an alright game but it's not really a playstation great that needs to be remastered, maybe if it was heavy rain..
I haven't really played beyond, but from what I heard it was a good, but very flawed game, aparently the story wasn't consistent as it should of been. Now heavy rain was awesome. That was a game you can really connect to.
This is the last game that I want on ps4. David Cage is a terrible writer with a talented team of 3d artists. For christs sake he believes that the navajo lived in teepees. >:( https://www.youtube.com/wat... Not to mention his completely pretentious stance that only photorealistic graphics can properly convey emotions. Despite all the stylized games that blow his games away in terms of expressive believable characters and writing. Like Wind Waker, Walking Dead, & Wolf Among Us. I feel really bad for the actors like Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe who gave great performances but had to work with a terrible script and subpar actors who couldn't hide their accent. Beyond two souls is the poster child for the huge distance in talent between writers for video games and writers for film and television.
So I wonder why Heavy Rain was a wonderful game with a great story and well written script. I believe you have terrible taste of a good writer script, David Cage problem with Beyond Was that it felt like a long movie, have many thing in one game is to much but it was a good game. David Cage said that if he can go back in time, he wouldn't have made behind but create a game out of (Kara tech demo ) and I am more happy that he work with PlayStation exclusively and he wish that PlayStation buy the company out.
If you think David Cage writes great scripts, I suppose you should educate yourself more. Heavy Rain had more plot holes than Swiss cheese. Calling those games a masterpiece is a bit too much. But I have huge respect for him and Sony that they release such kind of games. Games that dive into the human's psychology, that are something deeper than shooting monsters down.
This game is hot trash. No need to port it to ps4. I'd rather have the first 3 GoWs on the PS4 or Heavenly Sword definitive edition.
Heavenly Sword for PS4 would be awesome! I think Sony may be hinting at it with the CG movie release. http://uk.ign.com/videos/20... Never mind a remaster, we want a from-the-ground-up PS4 version.
Dude HS was one of the most underrated games from last gen! I would love a PS4 edition or a sequel on next gen. Make it happen Sony!
meh give me puppeteer on ps4 if u wanna do late last gen remakes
The last AAA exclusive game on the ps3
Not the last quality exclusive though! Hatsune Mikue Project Diva F 2nd comes out this fall! :D
Persona 5 and plenty more still to come to ps3 its far from dead!
These remasters are a great idea, they allows developers to upgrade their engines without the hassle of creating a new game from scratch. It's like a preseason in sports.
Wow, that is a great way to think about it. Scrimmage game.
The Last of Us was the highest reviewed and most critically acclaimed game in history. Fans wanted a version for PS4. Beyond was a pretty good game, but doubt it was requested by fans. I wonder how many people would get excited for this if true.
yea i get the last of us but not this one? was this reviewed well?
