Jak And Daxter, Jak X Racing, Jak 2, Jak 3 Rated For PS4 By ESRB
Jak and Daxter PS4
(Last Updated On: July 2, 2017)

The Jak and Daxter games have recently been rated by the ESRB for the PlayStation 4. This includes the original Jak and Daxter, Jak II, Jak 3 and Jak X: Combat Racing. Each of the games are rated ‘E’ through ‘T’, which means they will be releasing soon.

Sony had announced that the four games were coming to the PS4 via a teaser trailer a couple of months ago, but now we’re seeing something a bit more substantial at play.

The listing pops up if you search for “Jak” on the ESRB website, as noted by Reddit user ShelobTheGreat.

It looks like Sony’s remaster and re-release of all four games for the PlayStation 4 is coming soon. This fits in line with what they’ve been doing throughout this entire generation, relying mostly on remasters and remakes of fun games from the PSX and PS2 era since apparently people these days are so creatively bankrupt and filled with Social Justice that they have no idea how to create inventive, unique and engaging intellectual properties that can sell consoles.

Sony’s chief financial executive, Jim Ryan, had lambasted the prospect of backwards compatibility, claiming that no one played it or liked it and that the games looked terrible. It’s quite obvious that Ryan’s true reasons lay in the subtext of Sony’s actions: why offer backwards compatibility when you can charge people $60 for a fresh coat of resolution on 16-year-old games?

Sony recently took this initiative of remaking old classics by hiring Vicarious Visions to remake the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy. Last year they released a remake of the original Ratchet and Clank for PS4, and with the ESRB having rated the Jak and Daxter games, it looks like they’re completing the trifecta of family-friendly adventure games from the PS2 being remade for the PS4. Next year they’re also tackling Team Ico’s Shadow of the Colossus as a remake for the PS4.

I guess the latest PlayStation console has graduated from the “IndieStation 4” to the “RemakeStation 4”.

    Question is- will it be a full blown remake like Crash was, or just a reskin and a few new models like with the Rachet & Clank remakes?

    Don’t get me wrong- they were fun, but you had the odd visual glitch from the screen being at a new ration and new textures (especially pupils sinking into eyeballs in cutscenes)

  • SevTheBear

    There is a few indie games that are worth playing. But yeah, creative new games are few. Most of them are boring and soulless.

    I don’t mind remakes or remasters as long as they are GOOD ones with improvements. If this is just scaled “4K” with old graphics I really don’t see the point.

  • ThyPancakeConsumed

    New consoles, more of old shit.

  • MONAD

    I’ve been calling it the “Indiestation 4” since it launched. These people are so creatively bankrupt it isn’t funny. They seem to think all people want are these dinkie little $15 pixel games, when people have told them time and time again that this shit sucks.

    Microsoft might be filled with virtue signaling hacks, but at least they’re fucking trying. Games for Gold is infinitely better, Xbox Games Pass launched last month and is only going to get better as time goes on. I took a chance with getting the Xbox One as my first system this generation, and I’m quite glad I did.

        wow

        • Don’t be jealous.

          The Switch is like a sexy lady who only puts out the best every time you meet.

          Xbone and PS4 are like that average chick who is always willing to put out but she sometimes uses her teeth.

            I dont feel jealous or envious towards a cheaply made piece of shit with data management worse than the Vita (which was already bullshit), and requiring other devices for basic online shit alongside with the fee.

            All that salt, because you can’t play the Switch. It’s like saying Gisele is ugly ’cause she won’t give you head. LOL

            nintendrone tier “argument”
            How does it feel to have saves completely tied to the device for instance? Or the dock that harms the tablet?

            “And that means the third sentence is true too… PWWNNNNNNED!”

            >if you arent for current x, that means you’re for current y
            In despite I own a PS4 and a couple of games, I still have a low esteem for the system (which is the reason I didnt spend more than 100 eurobucks on it a few months ago).

            Fine. I only play fun games, so if I lose the saves it just means I can play them some more. This is what it looks like to have fun games in your library. Ahahaha.

            Or the dock that harms the tablet?

            Except it doesn’t, there’s at least a 5mm gap between the dock and the tablet screen. Don’t let the fake news turn you into a liberal thinker, lol.

            That’s because Sony is for ponies, but the Switch is for stallions.

        I probably will wind up getting a Switch in the next year. I’m just waiting for more software to come out on it. Seeing a new Kirby and Yoshi game announced made me happy, so I might finally bite on one.
