My thoughts exactly. What about the people who didn't have a PS3 but have a PS4? People are just haters who would rather complain about something that has doesn't affect them in any way than let the rest enjoy a good thing.

It's been an embarrassing few weeks for 'journalists' in general concerning this whole remastered debate. Everyone has a habit of viewing the topic entirely from their own perspective, forgetting that only 7 million of an 85 million PS3 install base bought TLOU, some of which will now own (or will own) a PS4.

Add to that the 360/Wii owners that have also now moved over to the PS4 and it becomes clear why it makes sense to release a PS4 version. People need to stop thinking only ONE gamer matters and start thinking like a company who has millions of gamers to cater for.

I'm going to go ahead and also include something that is a future motivation for Sony to do this. I await the articles: By adding TLOU to the PS4 library, Sony now have the option (which they will use) to release TLOU on PS+ just prior to the launch of TLOU2 on PS4. Watch it happen.

It's like everyone for this (and many topics) comes out like "Here's my opinion AND EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE MY OPINION AND MY LIFESTYLE CHOICES!" Like other people are stupid if they feel differently.

31% of PS4 owners owned a 360 or a Wii last gen and 17% never owned a last gen console. So that's almost half of PS4 owners who never played The Last of Us

I'm still surprised that Crytek has not tried to re-release their Crysis series to these next gen consoles. But then again, that's why they are where they are now...those arrogant pricks, mwahaha!

Publishers will always try to maximize the potential of their investments and expand upon increasingly slim profit margins one way or another, so considering all of the obnoxious ways they've attempted to do so over the last few years, I would rather deal with easily avoidable re-released content than a proliferation of dissected content in future releases.

Two words: backwards compatibility.

I would have bought a ps4 but I didn't have a ps3. So i went for a used and very cheap ps3. Very happy with it. But no money for Sony. Their loss.

It's ok when the ps4 gets it but when the Vita gets remasters it's bad. Smh

I rather have NEW games for my next gen consoles, not games I already got. It just a way for companies to make extra money.

The reasons people come up with for opposing remastered games just don't make any sense. Some claim that developers have to divert resources away from other games in development to make these remakes even though most people understand that most large development companies have several teams that work on several projects simultaneously. Then some claim that remakes are shameless cash grabs. If you have a choice to not buy the game and you already know in your mind if the remake is worth price, how is it a cash grab if you have an informed choice? The arguments against remastered games make absolutely no sense to me at all. If someone could come up with a logical reason as to why they oppose remastered games i'm more than willing to consider it. Haven't seen one yet though.

I dont mind remastered games, just dont like them so soon.
Im a big fan of most of the HD collections on PS3 as they include 2-4 games, all released over a long period of time on older consoles. They werent released one year prior.

But, no one forces anyone to buy these games. I will buy The Last of Us on PS4, as I havent played it on PS3 yet and would rather have the "definitive version".

Alot of remakes I will probably just ignore, I am building up a PS3/360 backlog thats going to take me years to get through anyway so its not like Im going to be short on games - ever.

Mcc with its ridiculous amount of content and last of us remastered, both at 1080p60fps, completely nullify any arguments agsinst remasters

lnfiniteLoop833d ago

as long as the devs dont bitch about the game not selling as many as they thought... then go ahead make your re-mastered versions... just realize your target market may be reduced...
