With so many of the best PlayStation 3 games being remastered in glorious form for the PlayStation 4, is there a reason to still pick up that old piece of hardware? Probably not, however, if you look deep enough, the console still has some hits that have yet to make the transition to current-gen platforms.
Here's five games that have us scratching our heads as to why they were never "remastered" and that the PlayStation 3 still holds close to its dying heart...
Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus
Into The Nexus is arguably the last great exclusive the PlayStation 3 will ever be the sole owner of and its a shame that it was overlooked by so many. The biggest problem with its release is that it launched in November of 2013, the same time gamers were busying trying to find a PlayStation 4 console and experience that next-gen launch lineup.
Having Ratchet's adventure in Into The Nexus on PS4 at launch would have made that $400 leap feel a little better compared to the lackluster titles we received instead.
Heavenly Sword is commonly-referred to as God of War with a female protagonist - We're not calling it a rip-off, but instead saying there's a market for it. After all, those who played it, praise it and there's always been a thirst for it to get a sequel or perhaps just an update to its graphics.
Remastering one of the best PS3 exclusives of the console's first year seems like a good idea to us. Plus, we'd love an excuse to finally see it get trophy support.
Assassin's Creed Rogue
Launching day and date with Assassin's Creed: Unity, Rogue had to have been overlooked by the more glorious-looking next-gen version when it came to sales. We won't deny it, despite Unity appearing to be the better choice, we had a bit more fun slamming our ships through ice than we did putting up with glitches in Paris for several months...
South Park: The Stick Of Truth
The Stick Of Truth released in March of 2014, while next-gen platform gaming was catching ground. However, it only came to PC, PlayStation 3, & Xbox 360.
With a sequel coming down the chute eventually, in the form of South Park: The Fractured But Whole, we don't understand how Ubisoft can once again not take the opportunity to claim more sales on a remaster. Especially on one of the most highly praised games of the year.
God Of War: Ascension
This is a shocker because there have been several rumors stating that Ascension is indeed in development for PS4. However, those rumors started swirling a year ago and there still hasn't been an official announcement from Sony.
Place your bets... Were those rumors just simply rumors or is it really on its way?
