Naughty Dog is no stranger to pushing the boundaries of PlayStation platforms, having set visual benchmarks on all three of Sony’s previous systems. Now, with its PlayStation 4 debut just a week away, the developer is aiming to do the same – and with re-release The Last of Us Remastered set to run in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, it doesn’t intend to lower its standards any time soon.
We already know, of course, that the gorgeous Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will target the top-tier benchmark – and the Californian studio seems pretty confident that it can hit it. “I think that [1080p60] is what we want to push for with anything that we're doing on this generation,” community strategist Arne Meyer told Eurogamer.net.
He continued: “That's sort of the mandate from when we were building the PS4 engine; let's see if we can do this and hit it. We hit it with The Last of Us Remastered, so why not stick with this?” Considering how good Nathan Drake looked in the sequel’s first trailer, we reckon that it will be a difficult statistic to maintain – but if anyone can do it, it’ll be Naughty Dog.
Elsewhere, Meyer reiterated that an Uncharted Collection for Sony’s next-gen system would be cool. “We'll have to see,” he concluded. “You know, I'd like to see it, and [Worldwide Studios president] Shu [Yoshida] would like to see it, too.” The question is: would you?
