PS4 Version of Beyond: Two Souls Possibly Outed by DualShock 4 Input Code
If The Last of Us: Remastered is any indication Sony seems fond of the idea of re-publishing the latest PS3 games on PS4, and something possibly ousting a PS4 version of Beyond: Two Souls has emerged thanks to NeoGAF user Dragonbane.
The screenshot that you can see at the bottom of the post was, according to Dragonbane, posted in one of the game’s programmers portfolios, but was almost immediately removed, but not before it was noticed and saved by the watchful eye of the internet.
What is it? Basically it’s the input code of the game for a DualShock 4 controller, which is a very plausible hint for an upcoming PS4 version of the game.
In addition to that Dragonbane’s detective work also exposed a reference to possibly reintegrating cut scenes in a “Director’s Cut” edition.
The port probably wouldn’t be too difficult, considering that the development pipeline behind Beyond: Two Souls already runs on PS4. It was used by Quantic Dream to create the impressive The Dark Sorcerer tech demo showcased at last year’s E3.
Of course we can’t be sure that the port will really happen, as the code could be just a test, or even part of a canceled project, but it surely is a good indication.
Update: interestingly enough, Quantic Dream’s Co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière has been retweeting questions about a PS4 remakes of Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain (without answering, of course). Take that as you will.
