‘The Last of Us’ collector’s edition, disk size, PSN release and more discussed

Arne Meyer comments on the possibility of a collector’s edition, Playstation Network digital release and Blu-ray disk size in addition to addressing multiplayer concerns for The Last of Us. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Well I like how Naughty dog handles their games from keeping multiplayer separate and all. If a collectors edition is revealed expect my pre-order from standard to collectors. :)

I'm just waiting for the CE to be announced(and show up on amazon) to pre-order.

I seriously doubt we will see a CE, since Sony has backed off doing them this year. None of the big Vita games got one, none of the big PS3 games got one (many said the same of All-Stars, yet we didn't). Finally, none of the ones from last year really sold, which is especially true for Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3.

yea, but one can hope.

Uncharted 3 most definitely had a collector's edition.

"MP has never taken away resources from the SP game in any of our games, always separate teams, separate resources. The folks working on the single player campaign always have the resources and support to complete that portion of the game to the vision they planned for."

not exactly true in Uncharted 3's case. SP wasn't as great as U2's was and it had to do with some of the Uncharted team working on The Last of Us. So sure MP doesn't take away resources from SP but other projects will move their talent around, but it is what it is. I'm hoping that TLOU fulfills what Uncharted 3 failed to do in terms of Single Player and Multiplayer. Can't wait to see what they have for MP

As far as I think the game will be incredible, I don't get the point of pre-ordering anymore.

Company don't give S*** about fans that pre-order... It's a shame...

No more discount... They give in-game things that you can have anyway and habitually it is faster to just stop by the store the same day the game is out instead of waiting between 1 and 4 days to get your hands on the game...

No doubt this deserves a collectors edition. It would right right next to my Ultimate Songbird Editon :)
despair  +   494d ago
wish I could afford that one, but had to budget for other games as well, went with the cheaper version :(

I miss the days of when the collectors edition was a same price preorder incentive.

Well it better get a CE, I don't see why they wouldn't since they know this is going to sell

As for the single player/multiplayer seperation thing...well lets put it this way it would still effect the single player because your taken a chunk of resources, moving a handful of people, to make another team, so in the end your still effecting the single player because you've made the team smaller to make up another one.
fabod86  +   494d ago
what about make the team bigger?
Jinkies  +   494d ago
They already made another team...

They added a second group in Naughtydog so they can work on two things at the same time. We have the Uncharted group and this group. I don't think they'll make it any bigger, developers sometimes have to work with what they have.
fabod86  +   494d ago
I mean that the team has improved since Uncharted 3 so they have more people to split between the singleplayer and the multiplayer.
Prototype  +   494d ago
My opinion is they can make the single player is disc and multiplayer is download from PSN, and anyways why do we need a multiplayer for a game like this? Doesn't make too much sense.
BitbyDeath  +   494d ago
Multiplayer might mean co-op.
Norrison  +   494d ago
They did the same thing for UC 2 and it delivered both in SP and MP.
KwietStorm  +   494d ago
That is exactly contradictory to what they said. I genuinely want to know why specifically the PS3 gaming community is so allergic to multiplayer. Everything is single player single player oh god Herr we go again with multiplayer ugh its gonna take away from single player, as if you know more about game development than the game developers. I've been gaming since Intellivision, so I love a good single player game if its a good game. But keep in mind, multiplayer "taking away" from the campaign can just as easily be subjective. The subtle player mode of a game can be crap regardless. Not including a multiplayer mode isn't going to automatically make the single player mode better.

This will go nicely with my Uncharted collectors editions.

"The first-party studio was previously responsible for the Crash Bandicoot, Jax and Uncharted series." whats this JAX series they mention? (;
blackblades  +   494d ago
Didn't seem like info to me, anyway it's probably be a big size download, tired of people and this multiplayer talk this game does not need multiplayer.
sandman224  +   494d ago
I wouldn't mind if there was a huge install to help with loading time.

As long as the MP will be something unique and fits within the world the SP establishes then I'll have no problem with it. I just hope it won't turn into the bullet storm most MP end up as.
isyourhouseonfire  +   494d ago
the last of us? or duke nukem forever? Trying to figure that out.
