Shuhei Yoshida has commented on the possibility of releasing "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune," "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves" and "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" on the PS4. According to a report from Gamepur on July 9, the president behind Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios first explained why "The Last of Us Remastered" is being released. He revealed that nearly half of PS4 owners never own a PS3. As a result, they missed out on several exclusive games.

Shuhei Yoshida thinks that "The Last of Us Remastered" is a "great way" to welcome new Playstation fans as it gives a taste of what they have been missing over the years. The executive went on to disclosed that fans have been requesting other remastered ports as well. The biggest mentions went to the aforementioned PS3 games from the "Uncharted" series.

Naughty Dog is the developer behind "The Last of Us Remastered" as well as the upcoming "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." So the studio is more than suitable to porting the previous projects to the next-generation system with enhanced graphical features like 60 frames per second and 1080p. Sony Computer Entertainment could also follow in the footsteps of Microsoft Studios with "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" as players get to play all the mainline games from the first-person shooter series before the release of "Halo 5: Guardians."

Shuhei Yoshida also cautioned that his company does not want to fill the PS4 lineup with remakes. Aside from the first three "Uncharted" games, the publisher is also rumored to be releasing "Beyond Two Souls" and "God of War Ascension" on the next-generation system. No official announcements have been made by the company, however.

"The Last of Us Remastered" is being released at the end of this month on July 29 while "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is due for a 2015 release. Naughty Dog also started work on another new game as well. You can find a screen of the fourth main "Uncharted" game near the top of this article (courtesy of the Playstation Facebook page).
