The Last of Us PS4 character models are equal to the PS3 versions cutscenes.

We all expected that the upcoming PS4 edition of The Last of Us would look better than its current PS3 counterpart, but it seems the game really is looking especially good. It has been reported that the in game character models in the PS4 edition are “on par” with the cutscenes in the PS3 version.

Whilst speaking to Edge, creative director Neil Druckmann said: “We brought in all the hi-res models, and then it’s on par with what you saw in the cutscenes,” said Druckmann. “There’s an improved lighting model. After that, we started looking across the board; enemies look a little blurry up close, so that was pretty easy. We ramped those up and saw a pretty significant difference.

Naughty Dog appear to be losing employee’s at an alarming rate. The latest to go is the lead character artist Michael Knowland who has worked for Naughty Dog for over three years.

Beyond: Two Souls coming to the PS4?

A few months ago we reported on a rumour that Sony were planning on releasing The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls on the PlayStation 4. We all hoped the rumour would prove true and a few days ago Sony announced that The Last of Us would indeed be coming to the PS4 in a remastered edition. That proved that at least half of the rumour was true, but what about Beyond: Two Souls?

Well whilst nothing official has been announced, a keen eyed NeoGAF user named Dragonbane may have uncovered proof of Beyond’s transition to the PS4. Dragonbane spotted the below image on one of the game designers online portfolios.

The Last of Us: Remastered coming to the PS4

There has long been rumours that The last of Us would be headed for the PS4 but now it has finally been confirmed. A banner on the Sony Entertainment Network online store reveals that Naughty Dog are releasing The Last of Us: Remastered on the PlayStation 4.

It seems the announcement may be a little early since when you click the banner it takes you to a “Page not found” screen. Still, it will no doubt take us somewhere magical once the link is uploaded. The game will come with all the DLC that has been released so far including the recent Left Behind DLC which received great reviews.

Naughty Dog explains the combat systems that did and didn’t make it into The Last of Us

You remember The Last of Us right? It was that ridiculously awesome game that came out last year on the PS3 and has since become one of the most popular games ever.

Sony loves that gamers are still interested in The Last Guardian

Between you and me dear reader, one of the main reasons I bought a PS3 back in 2009 (when I already owned an Xbox 360) was because the first trailer for The Last Guardian had just been released. I’m a huge fan of Team ICO’s Shadow of the Colossus and ICO and I was so excited to play another one of their games. Fast forward five years and The Last Guardian still hasn’t been released despite a total of seven years in development. Fortunately great PS3 games like Uncharted, The Last of Us and Metal Gear Solid 4 saved me from regretting my Sony purchase but every now and then I wonder whatever is going on with The Last Guardian. Finally we get a little more news on the game and it seems pretty good.

In a recent interview with IGN, Scott Rhode, one of the guys in charge of Sony’s roster of fully owned studios shed some light on the mysterious game and confirmed that it is “absolutely in the mix”.
