There are times in which our favorite developers teach us important lessons, and this is one of those times. Today new footage and previews for Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End hit the internet, and the folks at Quantum Break‘s (which is releasing tomorrow) studio Remedy Entertainment are impressed.
Head of PR Thomas Puha opened the dances, mentioning that the staff at Remedy has been watching the new footage, finding its looks stunning.

“Neil, Thank you for raising the bar & for inspiration.”

Druckmann himself responded, confirming the deal that they sealed a while ago, to send each other copies of the respective games.
Hell yeah! Thanks! https://t.co/jEYvaf4dKa

The folks at Remedy visited Naughty Dog a few weeks back, and apparently they found what they saw inspiring.
Maybe, when you’re tempted to bash a game to praise another just because they are on different consoles, you should take inspiration as well from the people who create those awesome experiences.
