The Last of Us Remastered

The Last of Us launched to an overwhelming amount of critical praise last year for the PlayStation 3. It was hailed as one of the generation's best, and most PlayStation diehards cite it as one of the pillars of the PS3's library.

What about the gamers without a PlayStation 3?

Those folks, according to Sony, are the ones who will buy the remake of the recent game on the PlayStation 4.

While speaking with MCV, SCEE Product Manager Josh Walker explained that the PSN's data suggests a lot of PS4 owners haven't played The Last of Us yet.

"We've looked at PSN data and can see a huge proportion of PS4 players haven't experienced The Last of Us yet."

What does Walker and the rest of Sony attribute the "huge proportion" of ignorant PS4 players to? Well, they're new to the platform, of course.

"This is quite indicative of the shift in the market and the many players who have migrated from competitive platforms that we're glad to welcome to PlayStation."

Put plainly: we're making it in order to sell the game to former Xbox fans. Cheers.

While you'd have a hard time convincing me it's time for a remake of a year old game (as was the case with Tomb Raider, as well), I imagine The Last of Us: Remastered will do quite well on the PlayStation 4.
