There has been more and more ideas for the PS4 ever since the console came out back in ’13 and one of ideas is remastered PS4 games or PS3 games remastered on PS4. So one could ask, why does a game need to be remastered; why not just enjoy the original copy and be happy with that; the answer is a little complicated.
For many, it is just the idea of the game getting remastered to the PS4 that really makes all the difference, an example of this is Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. The best games to come out on PS3 are now out on PS4 remastered and the improvements that were made are very noticeable.
Another example is the Spyro the Dragon: Reignited Trilogy, people thought that the 3 games getting remastered on PS4 would really make the games look stunning which, spoiler alert, they absolutely do. This is only one reason of many to get games that have been remastered to PS4.
Incidentally, it is not surprising that gamers are on the lookout for this but there is a downside to having remastered versions of games on the PS4 which can really harm or slow down the PS4. I’ll talk about the concept of Remastered PS4 games, what games are ideal and why, games with no loading screen or long screens and storage space issues.
Why buy Remastered PS4 games?
So once upon a time, I asked myself this very question “why buy Remastered PS4 games” or games that have been remastered on PS4 that was on the PS3. The reason was as simple as eliminating the concept of the loading screen when I played the Uncharted threesome on my PS3; it wasn’t going to be a century before the game to get started.
Incidentally, when I bought the remastered PS4 games that I bought, I did so from a need and not a want perspective. For example, I bought Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection because I got tired of the long loading times. Buying the game was definitely something that I wouldn’t have done if I didn’t face said problem on the PS3.
I got this….
If we’re being honest here, sometimes buying a remastered PS4 game becomes necessary because many of the PS3 games are being phased out and being moved to the PSN Plus or just regular downloads for the PS4. There is not a lot of room for trial and error when getting a Remastered PS4 game or a PS3 game that has been remastered for PS4.
To avoid this!
It goes without saying that choosing to buy PS3 games remastered on PS4 is a personal perference but it also goes without saying that if you make a choice to do it then do it for games you know would give you problems or has problems that were not completely addressed. Take God of War III Remastered, a game that didn’t really get a lot of notice starting out.
However, the longer that it was out, the more it became apparent that buying remastered PS3 games on PS4 is a necessity because God of War III was glitchy not to mention has been known to freeze at certain parts of the game.
This game solved that problem!
I’m not going to completely comment on the Spyro the Dragon Reiginited Trilogy, but it just seemed apparent to me that people just wanted that game remastered for the sole purpose of it looking good on PS4; I still have my Spyro the Dragon PS1 games and they all still work perfectly so there’s no reason for me to buy this collection.
The Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is a matter of choice because it isn’t really a game that needed remastering, but the Uncharted games for the PS3 definitely needed a remastered version because gamers no longer have to deal with…..
Long loading screens
As every gamer well knows that long loading screens can dictate more than one thing, but the biggest thing about long loading screens is that it can be a predictability factor of whether or not the game loads and sometimes it doesn’t. The Uncharted threesome for the PS3 has the longest loading screens ever which caused a huge problem.
Gamers walking out of the store with brand new copies of these games but still get them home only to be subjected to the long loading screen where there is a huge possibility of freezing. I remember when I was playing Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and I was at the part on Chapter 16 – Where am I, where I was just trying to make my way through the village.
However, during the gameplay and while I was trying to make my way through the village, I didn’t hear any sound and it was cutting in and out for a long time then I had to reload the game and it was still doing the same thing except this time the game waited until I was outside the village to start freezing.

Since buying the remastered collection on PS4, I don’t have a long loading screen nor do I have to contend with the game freezing so buying this collection is worth the money and is ABSOLUTELY necessary.
Storage space becomes an issue
Now, we eventually get to a point where downloading these remastered PS4 games start to really go to work on our storage space on our consoles. There’s nothing wrong with downloading PS3 games remastered on PS4 but I would say be smart about it, I wouldn’t download the Spyro the Dragon Reiginited Trilogy on my PS4 since the PS1 games already work on my PS2.
After awhile, the storage space on the PS4 will start to deteriorate at an alarming rate; it is without a doubt that downloading only a few of them will keep your storage space on your PS4 plentiful for future downloads. Although I made the choice to download PS4 games on my PS4, keeping an eye on my storage space is still important.
Overall, the remastered PS4 games is a very big deal and they’re great to have so as to alleviate the problems associated with past games but it is still wise to keep your eyes on the storage space because it is easy to go overboard with your downloads.
Remastered PS4 games have come a long way and have more than proven their mettle in showing improvements over their predecessors; I want it to go on the record that many remastered games are necessary and some people just wanted because they thought that the game would look cool on PS4.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and God of War III Remastered are necessary because the games had problems on the PS3. Long loading screens are completely eliminated and are no longer an issue and game freezes are completely gone, storage space is still an issue that needs to be monitored.
