For a great many PlayStation 3 owners, it is the most missed title of this generation.
And with so many developmental snags and other internal strife, it's no surprise that we still don't have a concrete release date for The Last Guardian . There has been much talk about it being saved for the next generation; perhaps it'll arrive during the first months of the PS4's tenure.
But that brings up an interesting question: Would you rather see this game release on the PS4? Or do you want Sony to bring it out for the current hardware? There are pros and cons to each, of course: On the one hand, it sucks that we'd have to wait even longer for the game and furthermore, we'd all have to buy an expensive new piece of hardware to play it. On the other hand, the team could feasibly do something really special by utilizing next-gen hardware and we'd get a truly memorable and perhaps even revolutionary experience. And can you imagine The Last Guardian being a PS4 launch title?
But then again, maybe it's best to keep the game on track for this generation. Given the amount of time and resources this project has sucked up by now, you'll want the biggest possible audience, right? Launching only on the PS4 could be financial suicide; there'd only be a tiny fraction of the PS3 audience. That, of course, is always a big stumbling black for all games that release exclusively for new hardware that almost nobody owns. So what do you say? The Last Guardian now or later?
