In the move everyone knew was coming, the critically acclaimed PS3 title The Last of Us is getting the high-res treatment and coming to you, the PS4 family. While some are rather wanting more original titles to crop up, this remaster is one that will fit right at home on the PS4. After fantastic remasters like the recent Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, The Last of Us was another game that really pushed the last gen to its very limits. Hell, it even bricked my PS3 when I tried playing it! Of course I wanted to hold that against it when I finally got around to reviewing the game, but I can't fault it for that. This really was one of the greatest games to grace the PS3 hardware and one that deserves to be seen in beautiful native 1080p with 60fps.
This raises the conversation though that are game development studios more keen to just rerelease upres'd versions of games that already launched? Approaching the 6 month mark and neither of the next gen consoles have released many true killer titles, as much as we enjoyed TitanFall and inFAMOUS: Second Son, the release window between killer titles is still so wide I find myself coming back to games I've already beaten or plugging the PS3 in to catch up on cutting down the "wall of shame" and finally beating games I either shelved or never got around to playing.
Either way, this is a huge announcement and one that can definitely bring more people to the PS4 hardware. A lot of my buddies who were Xbox 360 gamers jumped ship to the PS4 for this generation, so this game could be more so for them... as for the PlayStation faithful who already played it on PS3, wait for our review to see if a brand new coat of paint it worth the purchase.
