Naughty Dog Considering Bringing The Last Of Us To PS4?

The Last Of Us is a legit Game of the Year contender and arguably one of the best games ever made.

Now, might this PlayStation 3 exclusive become a masterful PlayStation 4 title as well? When Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli was asked over at the PlayStation Blog whether or not TLoU will come to Sony's new console, he replied as follows:

"We're just getting our Naughty Dog engine up and running on PS4 as we work on the next Uncharted project. We will see what the future brings! :)"

Earlier this year, Monacelli said the team had "no plans" to bring the celebrated title to the PS4, so this response has a very different - and much more encouraging - tone. The Last Of Us has already garnered multiple year-end awards from various sources, including PS3 Game of the Year at GameSpot. The widely acclaimed game also managed to ship an impressive 3.4 million copies; all the more impressive because it's a new IP.

Me, I'm hoping they spend their time and energy on Uncharted 4, but TLoU on PS4 would be awfully pretty.

I think they'd be crazy not to, the extra sales would be nutso if they did a Definitive Edition. If they are busy maybe a Sony toady could do it.

They could possibly hand off the conversion to a third party to do it. Heck, Sony could make it happen even if ND didn't want to expend the time.

Anyway, I'm getting used to the idea that all of the best PS2 versions of games will be found on the PS3 and all the best PS3 versions of games will be on the PS4.

I would love for this to happen with the dlc included. That would be epic.

However he sounds more optimistic to me, rather than certain to me and that leaves me with little hope because even if it happened it's a ways off. The more time that goes by the better, however in this case the sooner the better considering it just released and people still want it.

It would definitely get me to buy a PS4 sooner. I've been wanting to play this game for a while.

I'm not a big fan of remakes myself, but I personally think that TLoU on the PS4 would be great. It already is amazing on the PS3 but there are still a few technical stuff that could be ironed out with the help of the PS4's power. A solid framerate would be one.

So yeah, I really hope that Naughty Dog will make a PS4 version. Aside from that, me and my friends love the multiplayer and would love to continue playing on the PS4.

Remakes are great if they're old games like Zelda Wind a Waker or Final Fantasy X but a game that just came out? Seems like a waste of resources and time. The game had small issues but it's the PS3's best game. Seem pointless wasting time remaking a game that just released. The time would be better spent making a new one IMO.

i wouldent take that as a remake tease, more like a sequel tease.
think about it, why would they release TLoU on ps4 after uncharted releases?
plus by then the standards would of moved on significantly!
if $ony wanted TLoU on ps4 they should of announced it by now, and released it by the middle of next year, otherwise its just pointless.
not to mention this is probably the worst game to re release, for exactly that reason, as a game its pretty thin.
TLoU was a experience, most have already experienced that, so re releasing it would only hurt the games image.
it did so well because the experience it gave people blanketed the thin boring simplistic gameplay, it hid the truth of what the game really is.
re releasing it with a shinier coat of paint will just pull back the curtain and make people see it for what it really is.

No just make a sequel to TLOU or a new IP. The industry is getting too much into remakes. While I love all the HD collections and things like that (missed out on Sly, Ico, Shadow, Ratchet, Jak) why not let TLOU breathe on its own as the great PS3 game that it is for a while before even considering a remake?

Hope they don't do it and focus on making a new title.

Sorry Naughty Dog, not interested. With this hardware you should be able to create a LOT more complex games and should be able to break free from the extreme limitations you had to relate to on the PS3.

I want to see how such masterful developers as yourselves are able to fully exploit the potential of this new platform. So no thanks, no PS3 ports are of interest to me, not even when the setting is post apocalyptic.

Well even if it did happen which he clearly doesn't say it will, I am sure they wouldn't handle all of it internally. So this wouldn't and doesn't have any effect on their future games.

Limitations like the goal of making a linear narrative driven game? Yea sorry, I hope they still continue to make Uncharted and Last of Usesque games. Not every game needs to be open world. (I know you didn't mention open world, I'm just making the assumption that that is what you mean).
