Originally, they weren't going to do a port as like you mentioned
they went to work on a ps4 version AS SOON AS ps3 version was released. and they lied to the public that the game wouldnt come out on ps4. (which is very obvious because it would dampen sales of the ps3 version as people would wait for the better ps4 version)
im sure GTA5 is the same case. they are working on PS4 version, but lying to everyone that PS4 version won't come out
Naughty Dog said they had no plans. They never said it would never happen. With as long as the game is taking to release, it's pretty apparent that Sony told them to make a next gen version after the statement was made. Most likely due to an arsenal of requests. Keep in mind that not everybody who owns a PS4, owned a PS3 and still want to experience the game. I know a lot of people who made the switch from the Xbox 360.
But here you are. Trashing Playstation yet again in another thread.
Source where they said it would never happen?
They did say it wouldn't happen for PS4. But I'm guessing Sony pushed them to make one and the many requests by those who didn't experience it http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-10-17-naugh
Thanks you two, this is what I was trying to say and just didn't articulate well enough. I'm sure the plans weren't to do a port but the requests and pushing by Sony more than likely put it on the PS4 track. Apologies for not being clear enough with my last post.
I'm just glad more people can play this game who never bought it on PS3, never bought a PS3 but went to PS4 (360 or Wii /Wii U owner prior), or don't have confidence in PS Now due to various reasons (slow internet, data caps, no internet).
While many question why it's coming out or are not going to bother buying the game for the second time, there are many that I'm sure are excited and looking forward to its release.
Just crossing my fingers that an upgrade program for those who still have the game (*Grumble* Bought the game digitally last month due to the Amazon sale *Grumble*), so here's to hoping for some of us.

I honestly dont understand the salivating **bleep** licking over this game.IIt took over my controls way too much in dumb **bleep** cut scenes and was super annoying at times.I finished it and traded it.Dont get me wrong i like naughty dog as game developers ,loved the uncharted tomb raider twist on stuff but this game was just a snooze fest some times.
I must be old.Dont get why so much love.But hey they'll make money off ya.
Let me go and get a PS4 right now.....not. I don't own this game and have no interest in ever owning it. I have yet to finish Uncharted 2 lol.
Oh.... so what's the point of you posting here then?
