ND or whoever can keep it, I don't buy re-masters, hanks. New games or sequals only.

Jalva1003d ago

Thank Allah I'm not the only one, no more remasters, if gamers keep buying them then the gaming industry will turn into Hollywood, then everyone who was buying them would be complaining about what they themselves had caused.

ShugaCane1003d ago (Edited 1003d ago )

I see your point but It's Naughty Dog we are talking about. They take time between each release so that their games are as good as possible. If buying a remastered edition gives them the money to create even better sequels, then I'm in.

Plus, an HD collection of one of the most entertaining and best looking franchises of the previous gen is something to be happy about. Especially for PS4 owners who intend to buy UC4 but didn't play the previous games.

Remasters can be interesting if done well. TLOU is a fine example. People should stop giving money to studios who don't put efforts into REALLY remastering.

spacewarrior11003d ago

people keep buying them because thats pretty much all PS4 and Xbox One are getting at the moment. remasters are probably at least 85% of the whole current gen library. also the actual remasters aren't the problem its greedy devs that ruin them for example missing games in the remaster such as the Borderlands handsome collection which doesn't have Borderlands 1 or pointless remasters that still charge extra for DLC such as Dead or alive 5 or only offering one game in a franchise such as Saints Row 4 port. if thats all devs give us we don't have much choice as current gen is lacking in games.

If all 3 were remastered as well as TLOU in 1080p @60fps, then yes... Yes, I would buy it.

chrismichaels041003d ago (Edited 1003d ago )

An Uncharted Masterpiece collection would be great for all of the new xbox 360 and Wii fans that bought a PS4 this gen and didnt have a chance to experience any of the Uncharted games on the PS3. If the collection also includes Uncharted Golden Abyss, that would be even better for all of those people that dont own a Vita and never played it.

freshslicepizza1003d ago (Edited 1003d ago )

why are remasters a problem? we seem to love them when it comes to movies and new formats like going from dvd to bluray so what's the problem when it happens with games?

you have to consider two things. one is the hardware improves and gives new life to older games. some older titles suffer performance or can get better frame rates like we saw with the last of us. better visuals as well. the second thing you have to consider is not everyone played the older titles since not everyone had a ps3 that now owns a ps4.

the ps4 does not offer backwards compatibility either which also explains why we see more and more of them.

this could explain the delay for uncharted 4. sony may know uncharted 4 will sell any time during the year so why not have maximum exposure for a remaster collection out in the fall? that's what i think is the plan.

from the beach1003d ago

It's fine when the game is old enough, for example the recent Majora's Mask remake, but stuff from the PS3 generation (and really PS2 as well) is still perfectly playable.

The last Uncharted game is, what, three years old?

"Remasters can be interesting if done well. TLOU is a fine example. People should stop giving money to studios who don't put efforts into REALLY remastering."

What the? TLoU did nothing that the other remasters didn't, absolutely nothing, upped the resolution, fps and adding the DLC is what all remasters have done, GTAV is a remaster done right, tons of new customisation options, new weapons, new vehicles, new clothes, new songs, new wildlife, new first person mode along with upping the resolution.

Remastering the Uncharted games is a terrible example to the industry, because people are gonna buy them and send the wrong message to the industry, before you know it every developer will be remastering recent games every generation... why am I even bothering, you lot are hopeless.

@moldybread

"why are remasters a problem? we seem to love them when it comes to movies and new formats like going from dvd to bluray so what's the problem when it happens with games?"

Terrible example, movies don't need to be reworked on to be burned onto a blu-ray disc.

"the second thing you have to consider is not everyone played the older titles since not everyone had a ps3 that now owns a ps4."

If they really cared about them in the first place they would have owned the system back then, and if they didn't, well nobody is stopping them from going and getting one if they suddenly turn that desperate to play older games, it never bothered anyone before this 'remaster' craze.

"the ps4 does not offer backwards compatibility either which also explains why we see more and more of them."

And the reason for that is so that they can nickel and dime us for every penny we have by reselling us the same games with extremely minor improvements, and idiots buy them again and again, why did they need to 'remaster' TLoU anyway, it already had perfect scores from almost everyone... oh wait, I know why, $$$.

"Terrible example, movies don't need to be reworked on to be burned onto a blu-ray disc."

and your point is? the consumer wants better improvements to go along with better hardware. how the industry does it is not of any importance to the consumer. there is obviously a demand there otherwise we would not be getting remastered games.

"If they really cared about them in the first place they would have owned the system back then, and if they didn't, well nobody is stopping them from going and getting one if they suddenly turn that desperate to play older games, it never bothered anyone before this 'remaster' craze."

this is your argument? the consumer decides, how complicated is that? the last of us sales on the ps4 clearly shows not everyone thinks like you. how many times has resident evil been remastered so your answer to this hasn't happened before is a complete fabrication.

"And the reason for that is so that they can nickel and dime us for every penny we have by reselling us the same games with extremely minor improvements, and idiots buy them again and again, why did they need to 'remaster' TLoU anyway, it already had perfect scores from almost everyone... oh wait, I know why, $$$."

you are right, it is about money. welcome to business class 101. that money by the way is from consumers who are willing to pay for remasters. money being made means a more healthy industry. here's a really good idea if you don't like remasters or want to support them. don't buy them. see how simple your problems went away? that's the beauty to all of this. both sides can be happy but for some very odd reason you appear to have issues with those who are buying those games without your money.

isn't it ironic how you talk about how this wasn't a problem before. tell me again how many games came out back in the nes days or even the very first playstation days. i guarantee we see far more game releases today than we did back then. so this notion that they somehow take away from other games being made is just fear mongering on your part. the only difference now is people seem to complain a lot more about everything today than they did back then.

"remasters are probably at least 85% of the whole current gen library."

What a ridiculous statistic to pull out of thin air.

OT - People who don't like remasters and insist that no one else should either really need to get over themselves.

UltraNova1002d ago (Edited 1002d ago )

I just went through 20,000 words of why an Uncharted collection should or shouldn't happen and I was like WTF are they talking about there's no way all 3 games could fit into one 50GB disc and we know a second disc is a no no for publishers especially for a remaster where full price is already in question!

Unless of course its a digital only release (not happening) where it could be anywhere from 100-150 GB...well try and sell that on a 500GB system where space should already be an issue for most!

mechlord1002d ago

I didnt play UC3 because it was too much for my old fat ps3 so i would deffo buy a remaster. Didnt also play the first one (only played the demo) so im all for this. Considering how many *new* players are coming/returning home, i would think this would be a success.

from the beach1002d ago

"People who don't like remasters and insist that no one else should either really need to get over themselves"

No need to 'attack the person', dude.

The article puts forward the notion of a remaster replacing a new game in a prime, end-of-year slot. A lot of people quite rightly find that unacceptable.

I've come to accept that they're here to stay.

That being said, these games might be available to the general public, but they are probably not meant for people like you and me who have beaten them in the past. Exclusives remastered make sense in my opinion (in case you didn't own a PS3 last generation), so I don't see this as a terrible move. If Sony starts that rumored crowd funding thing, we might eliminate the revenue needs of remastered titles, but it still leaves those who have never played these games alienated.

I guess I'm saying that while I would rather play new games, I understand the strategy being used.

gamer78041003d ago

That's fine but you are in the minority without a doubt

Gamer19821003d ago

I owuld love a remaster of UC2 quite possibly the best PS3 game ever made. I don't like remasters either but I don't have an issues with remastering the top-top games. Just keep the 3rd party crap away from me. I don't think games like DMC deserved one with its poor sales but UC definitely deserves one but to do so would probably be as long as making a game itself as it was designed for a completely different system and its 3 games not 1. Saying that it's not like they havn't ported a PS3 game before..

IMO remastering is the process of going back & addressing all developmental limitations imposed by a consoles predecessor. Upping the resolution, fps & throwing in all the DLC is neat, but I think its more about accentuating the finer details in audio, visual & gameplay areas of a remastered project. I am personally shocked at the critical acclaim the DMC remaster got when its simply mimics the PC version at its highest settings...Seriously game journalists are the ones propagating this "All DLC 1080p & 60fps" as the only way to go, when it should be about more than that.

Link2DaFutcha1002d ago

You don't need to buy it but just because you don't doesn't mean others, like myself, who haven't played any game in the uncharted series before would like to see this. Fingers crossed this happens.

Uncharted is about the graphics, presentation, and animation. A remaster of it would just be an update of the visuals. There's not much readeaming gameplay from this series.

This is coming from a person who ranks Uncharted 2 as their #2 best game of last generation. You had to have played these games when they came out. U2 annihilated the competition for 2 years.

During E3 if they annouce a remaster I will not be surprised and I will dissapointed.

marloc_x1003d ago (Edited 1003d ago )

Perhaps a Uncharted/Temple Run crossover on every Xperia?

NeverHeavyMan1003d ago

No reason to be disappointed about something that you don't have to buy and that will ADD to a gaming library. Not shrink it.

OT: Yes, an Uncharted Trilogy Remastered I would buy without a second thought. These are some of the greatest games to ever grace PlayStation, and some of my absolute favorites of all time!

DLConspiracy1003d ago (Edited 1003d ago )

That's the beauty of buying games on PC. No matter what gen a game came out I can still play it on PC. Unfortunately in order to play these games it needs to be updated and rewritten to play on PS4. Then next gen they will do it again.

nitus101002d ago

@DLConspiracy

We are talking about Uncharted remasters for the PS4. I am not aware of any Uncharted game for the PC so if you would like to play these games then either buy a PS3 or if it happens, a remaster for the PS4.

Either way no one is forcing you to buy or re-buy the games.

DLConspiracy1002d ago

@nitus

Thats cool. I have a ps4. I was just mentioning my thoughts.

I am not against consoles. As I mentioned. I am never forced to buy or play anything. So I am not quite sure what you mean. Happy gaming.

Gamer19821003d ago

Not really they could update the netcode for multiplayer. UC2 was a TON of fun online but had issues that could easily be fixed with PS4 especially with party chat etc.. Not to mention shareplay so your mates can show you where those last few treasures are :).

Toiletsteak1003d ago

I have been saying this since they announced TLOU was being remastered, it seems like a good thing to do and there reasoning for bringing TLOU over was that the people that only had 360's last gen never got to play TLOU so it makes sense for them to bring it over too PS4, if you don't want it then do buy it but there is more people out there that will buy then won't.
