Rumored inFAMOUS Lightning Edition A Fake?
So, it seems that the Amazon listing purporting to be for an inFAMOUS remaster was probably faked.
Like many we reported this listing yesterday, and even if it does trn out to be completely fake, the discussion of a possible inFAMOUS remaster did raise an interesting point; Does remastering PS3 games for PS4 actually make much sense?
Remastering titles from the PS2 generation makes some sense because there is a huge leap in quality, and the hardware available now can accomplish things that could not be done during the PS2 generation. Ratchet and Clank is a pretty good example of this.
Remastering from the PS3 on the other hand, is a bit different. Most PS3 games rendered above 720p, used HD textures and various advanced lighting effects and post production effects. The Uncharted Collection is a great example of this, showing that even a 'stellar' PS3 game can significantly benefit from apearing on the PS4.
So, it seems very likely that the inFAMOUS Lightning Edition might be a fake, but what if it's not? What if Sucker Punch and Sony see sufficient interest in this story to suggest real interest in a remastered inFAMOUS.
Would you buy that remaster? What are the pros and cons of remastering PS3 titles from your point of view?
Hoaxers should be tracked down and made to play Haze for 3 days non-stop, or until they beg forgiveness, whichever comes first.
