Michael Pachter reckons that survival thriller title, The Last of Us, will see a release on the PlayStation 4 as well as the PS3.
This prediction comes from famed videogame analyst, Michael Pachter who recently spoke on Gamertag Radio about the subject. Pachter’s newest estimation comes with the idea that whilst the long-awaited PS3 version of The Last of Us is being developed, there’s probably a PS4 version being developed alongside it to be part of the PS4’s launch titles.
He also reckons that platform exclusivity is going to become a propriety of first part developers only.
The only guys who should make exclusive next-gen titles are people who get paid for it, which means first-party or someone that they pay up for an exclusive..First-party… like what’s The Last of Us going to be? That’s coming out in June. Is it going to be next-gen too? Probably. My guess is that that thing gets onto the next-gen. Watch Dogs is next-gen and current-gen, you know?
Part of the suspect behind this is the recent delay of The Last of Us which puts it at a June 14 release, meaning it occupies the same week as E3 2013 which is where the PS4 hardware is due to be revealed.
