I will say a part of me is curious what the TLOU1 remake is, like is it just a straight port but on TLOU2 engine and assets or did it include some gameplay changes?
And from a marketing perspective I can kinda see a reason for a remake especially with a direct sequel and wanting both games to have a more consistent visual experience between the two (look at Xenosaga for an example of visual inconsistencies between games) and it could make for a nice boxset type package or pre order incentive, but then why not just package in the OG game?
I mean I love alot of Sony's big first party games but since the PS4 launched we've gotten less and less smaller scale games. Things like The Last Guy, Tokyo Jungle, Puppeter (why was this never ported to PS4?) Are so increasingly rare that when one does happen they pass by with little to no fanfare or even a trailer sometimes.
I mean I get the reason for the big tent pole franchise release ,it's what draws people to the consoles but for every TLOU, God War, or Ratchet & Clank there needs to be a Resogun, Siren, or Toon Grand Prix (God just imagine what a new one could look like? )
