Five PS3 Games Sony Should Re-Release for PlayStation 4

Robert Workman (Prima Games): With the release of The Last of Us Remastered this week, Sony proved it can bring quality PlayStation 3 experiences to PlayStation 4. Granted, it's no stranger to the process, as it delivered a number of PlayStation 2 releases like Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, the God of War games and Ratchet and Clank trilogy to the PS3. However, this feels like a whole new ball game, and the company will soon follow with a remade Ratchet & Clank sometime in 2015, with a little help from Insomniac Games.

That said, we came up with a list of five great games from Sony's past that would look wonderful on the PS4. Sure, it may take some time and effort, but we have a feeling these ports would be well received with both fans of the originals and new players alike. (Journey, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3, PS4, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Super Stardust HD, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune)

Journey is definitely coming to PS4 (Gamescom is 10 days away).

Uncharted trilogy would be absolutely awesome, but can they get it done before the end of next year, when Uncharted 4 is out?

Sly Cooper: I'd rather see a new one for PS4, rather than a game I already own for PS3 and Vita. I don't think they'd see the benefit of a re-release for this one.

PlayStation All-Stars: The first one was good and has its audience, but I'd rather they continued and made a new one for PS4 with improvements and work hard at putting the characters in that we've all asked for.

Super Stardust HD was great. Wouldn't complain about seeing it on PS4, but I'd rather see a new Dead Nation from Housemarque.

I agree, I'd love a new Sly on PS4. One that could maybe have visuals similar to the movie. PSASBR should get a sequel though. They could totally expand on it and really flesh it out. I know a lot of people thought the first was a ripoff of Smash, but it was good in its own way and had some really cool ideas. I want to see a followup.

Same topic I've seen twice before in the past week.. so same comment:

"Exclusive remasters I'd buy:
*Uncharted Trilogy
*Resistance Trilogy
*Metal Gear Solid Collection (1-4)
*The Last Of Us (already released)
*God of War Collection (all 6)
*Ico/SotC (or just an SotC remake - built for PS4)
*Heavy Rain
*Killzone (2-3)
*Ratchet & Clank Future (ToD, QfB, AciT, and maybe Nexus) and maybe the PS2 ones

Multiplat remasters I'd buy:
*BioShock Trilogy
*Half-Life (1-2 and episodes, etc.)
*Portal Collection
*Red Dead Redemption (GotY edition w/ Undead Nightmare)
*Battlefield: Bad Company Collection (throw in BF3 too if you want)
*Test Drive: Eve of Destruction (a PS2 game, hopefully w/ new EoD2 game)
*Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy (I like the Spec Ops missions) / Black Ops (Blops 1 has the best MP IMO.. out of CoD games)
*Dead Space (mostly 1, I haven't played 2 & 3 yet)
*Civilization: Revolution

Some others I'd consider, but would personally probably wait longer to buy, like GTA IV, Fallout 3, LBP, Brutal Legend, Burnout: Paradise, Folklore, Beyond: Two Souls (haven't tried it yet), Metro series (coming soon), may be forgetting some, but that's pretty much all I'd rebuy, and I would definitely rebuy and replay them."

Umm how about we get new games. TLOU I appreciate because its relatively new and Im glad I experienced it and Halo MCC is awesome but seriously we got new consoles for new games not old games with updated resolution/framerate if your going to do a remaster at least update the textures like GTA5 on ps4 did.

Sly was awesome i enjoyed it .

PS4 please deliver games like the PS2 days
memots  +   551d ago
Please Sony don't release more of your awesome game on the next gen i cannot stand the crying and moaning.
After the last of Us crazy hate it shows that only Sony is not allowed to release remaster.

If i had to pick a remaster from any dev itd have to be Mass Effect... 1080p space exploration ftw :p
stefan771  +   551d ago

oasdada  +   551d ago

I don't see a point to super stardust. I'm betting they'll bring the uncharted trilogy to ps4 though.

screw remakes of old games i want new games!! if you want to play ps3 games then get back on your ps3
TWB  +   551d ago
Yeah honestly more new games.

I guess I can understand remaking games that just came out (as TLOU R basicly isnt even a remaster, its just another version of the game that came a bit later) and games that were either forgoten or missed by many (due to bad timing).

Personaly I would like to see TY The Tasmanian tiger series brought as HD remake because the games are already pretty old (PS2 era), they are pretty hard to find for the PS2 and I feel that the series is somewhat underrated so not many people have heard/played them, PS3/4 release with decent marketing would be a whole new market for the series. Im saying this because I somehow managed to find the second one from a store but first one was already sold and I just happened to hear that there actually is a third entry to the series (which came to me as a complete surprise).

Either way, this whole "remake craze" is exactly about the same sensation as playing old games on a emulator (which often can provide better than original experience).

I guess this just goes to show that the last gen did go on for too long because so many people want remakes of the games from recent years.

NO PLAYSTATION ALLSTARS! A man platinumed it but it was sooooo disappointing on so many levels. Just make a real Sony brawler without supers as the only kill method (have a bunch of game modes one of which involves supers). Also get Big Boss not Raiden (MGS5 advertisement), Old Dante not new, Crash, Spyro, some real dynamic stages, Kane, Lara Croft (old model), Joel, and Batman (Arkham).
Kemo_Spear  +   551d ago
Killzone 1,2,3 (with KZ1 being completely rebuilt from the ground up like what they did with Oddworld new & tasty. That way it would be like having a new game).
