Forums - Sony Discussion - Don't Expect Too Many More Remasters from Sony

Looks like Sony will be scaling back considerably on the remasters as the generation goes on, which is a stark contrast to the earlier comments from Andrew House, which implied that the PS4 would see a considerable amount of PS3 remakes.

"You can't have too many of these things otherwise next-gen just looks like rehashed last-gen and we certainly don't want that," PlayStation Europe executive Jim Ryan told CVG in an interview. "I think the balance is just about right but you know, there are other games that could be looked at, but there'll come a point where next gen will have moved on and rehashing old-gen will have passed its sell-by date."

Ryan explained that bringing a game like The Last of US to PS4 made a lot of sense because it earned great reviews and came out near the launch of the PS4. For the people who transitioned to a PS4 from a competing platform last generation, it was also the first opportunity to play it. Ryan said that Sony will look at bringing other PS3 games to PS4 when it "makes sense."

Money is money though. Although, right now they should be swimming in cash, so I guess if they want a break, they can take a break. But I doubt they would just stop do to reasons post up above.

Too late. The trend has already started, except SE, EA, and Capcom to join in.



That's good news. Still would like to see remastered Uncharted games.

Yeah no. I did not buy a next gen console to play boring next gen games. I bought it to see my favorite games with shinier pixels. If I wanted to play next gen games I'd wait for next next gen.

 I don't think that way, I just type that way.

My first bet.

That's an odd sudden turn-around.

I wonder if TLOUR really didn't meet their expectations and the polar split on the issue was not something they wanted to deal with with low returns?

It selling so well considering its a remaster. If they are disappointed then their expectations were too high.

Good to hear although my main issue was that the game was only one years old and not that it was a remaster cause I don't mind remasters of older games but good to hear none the less

I just can't figure out why they'd be suddenly doing such a turn-around on the issue.
