Naughty Dog devs have been praising the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive title The Last of Us Remastered a lot ever since the game was showcased at Sony’s E3 2014 press conference.

Talking about the use of C++11, which is the latest version of C++ programming language that is widely used in video games, Gregory stated that the team has not implemented it in the video game development yet, but the shift might be considered if C++11 turns out to be beneficial for their upcoming titles. The new version of the programming language is apparently good for boosting up the computation speed.
@0martint We haven't made a full switch to C++11… and in true, highly pragmatic ND style we'll do it only if/as it benefits our games.

Bryan Singh, who is a game designer at Naughty Dog, managed to take out some time and explain why the developer’s upcoming highly anticipated video game called Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is exclusive to PlayStation 4 and will not come to the PlayStation 3 console. He tweeted saying that the American video game developer creates video games keeping only one console in focus so that most of the hardware potential is utilized.
@Miguel_BRomero Only announced for PS4. We build games specifically for each console so we can get the most out of the hardware.
