Sounds Like flower's Going to Look Bloomin' Lovely on PS4

Before thatgamecompany changed the industry with a couple of hooded buccaneers, the studio preferred to dabble in botany. The indie outfit’s stunning flower delivered a liberating journey through a romantic world, and remains one of the most empowering experiences on the PlayStation 3 to date. But while the title’s also set to grow onto the PlayStation Vita, the platform holder has confirmed that the digital download will blossom onto the PlayStation 4, too.

According to Tim Moss, who’s the director of technology at Sony Santa Monica, the next generation iteration of the colourful classic will run in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second on the platform holder’s impending machine. “[It’s] a pretty magical experience,” he wrote on Twitter. Asked for more information, the graphics guru added that the re-release will feature additional anti-aliasing and extra grass detail. “It’s really pretty,” he concluded. Sounds like it’s going to, er, blow us away. (Sorry.)

I am going to buy this on both PS4 and Vita. This is one of my favourite PS3 games, and it can only be enhanced by the improved gyroscopes in each of the aforementioned platforms. Can't wait.

Games like these are the reason I feel PS4 has better games than Xbox One and Wii U. Microsoft seems to be only focused on the Call of Duty's and Maddens of the world, and while those same experiences will be on PS4 as well, Sony's focus is completely different. Games like Flower, Journey, Resogun, Mighty Number 9, Rain, etc are diamonds in the rough in my opinion. Some gamers try to put down Sony because of their indie focus but when you think about it indies are the ones that really carry the gaming industry. So while your waiting for the next BIG thing from Rockstar, Naughty Dog, Square, Konami or even Sony, PS4 will have a wealth of interesting and great games on the cheap and some are even free to play.

I love the way Sony is handling the next Gen with a strong focus on games for both the gamer and the developer. it really brings me back to the PSone days when there was never a drought of good games to play. This Gen has seen more droughts than I could remember. It's like after you beat Tomb Raider or Bioshock it took forever for something else interesting to come around. that led me to gaming more on my ipad because despite how gamers feel about the ipad platform they have a few diamonds in the rough that only cost $1 or is free. Sony clearly saw the same thing happening and i believe that is why their leaning more to indies now.

Here's hoping there will be a discounted price for those who have already purchased the PS3 version and/or PS+ discounts. I loved the game but not sure I am dropping a whole lot of cash (it'll probably be pretty cheap I know) on a game I already played just for some prettier graphics.

@ShogunRok Not sure how much better Journey could even look? That game was gorgeous on PS3...

Very excellent! Just read and heard about this game, never played it. I will definitely buy this for I would Journey, if there ever was an updated version.
