It was only a matter of weeks ago that Sony announced The Last of Us: Remastered would be hitting the PS4 later this summer. It was the Game of the Year for countless outlets, including Examiner.com, and provided an experience consumers have been yearning for, for years. Naughty Dog believes The Last of Us: Remastered will serve as a means to learn about the PS4.

Even with The Last of Us already being released on the PS3, there are still a lot of people who haven't experienced the game yet, and PS4 is their next chance. This will be Naughty Dog's first release for the world of PS4, and they believe this will serve as a bit of a learning experience for them. Eric Monacelli, who is a community manager at Naughty Dog, talked about how the team is looking to learn about the PS4's architecture through the creation of The Last of Us: Remastered.

"When The Last of Us wrapped on PS3 we had just started to get a handle on the PS4 architecture.

"Internally, we felt that bringing The Last of Us over to PS4 might teach us some things about how we could get our game engine to work on PS4 and in doing so, would help us understand the architecture better for future projects. Also, The Last of Us for PS4 gives us a chance to provide a definitive version of the game in full 1080p with Left Behind and all core DLC included," Monacelli said.

Those who played The Last of Us on PS3 know just how unbelievable of a game it was, and if you're like me, you can't wait to pick this up on the PS4 as well. The Last of Us: Remastered will also serve as an opportunity for Naughty Dog to release a definitive edition of the game, like a lot of games do these days.

Among all of the PS4 ports or remakes we've seen thus far, none of them did what The Last of Us accomplished when it was released last summer. This game will debut sometime this summer for the PS4 and it'll be interesting to see what exactly changes or doesn't with The Last of Us on PS4.
