The Last of Us 'probably' coming to PS4 too, says Pachter

A PlayStation 4 version of The Last of Us is "probably" in development alongside the upcoming PS3 version, industry analyst Michael Pachter has predicted. (PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us)

this would be awesome and if its a better version of the ps3 version then i most likely will buy it also on ps4. this game looks amazing and i cant wait to buy it. most previews ive seen of this game makes it seem like a next gen title
GribbleGrunger  +   1006d ago
Yes, I've been considering this for a while now. Don't discount other huge 1st party IPs that are coming this year too. Now, all we need to hear are the words Cross-Buy and these games will sell well on both systems.

would be a great Cross buy thing. Buy Last of Us on the PS3 get a free digital enhanced version to play on the PS4
WarThunder  +   1006d ago
Don't be fooled!

Pachter made this up! Last of us will not release on the PS4. Last of us is made for the PS3 architecture. His just trying along with to mislead/confuse people to wait for the PS4 version which will not come. This way Naughty Dog will lose sales.

WarThunder, all PS3 assets are made on the PC, then crammed into PS3 architecture and RAM restraints. Developers have already said that porting to the PS4 is a dream. And I'm pretty sure Naughty Dog stated that all their assets are ALREADY in 1080p - or higher - PC format.

This rumour is hardly a stretch.
yoshiroaka  +   1006d ago
The last of Us can easily pass as an early next gen title with some minor upgrades to the lighting and textures and what not.

And with the release date being pushed to the day after E3 means that maybe there is going to be some kind of showing for the game as part of the PS4 showcase as a launch title so it will gain press.

Instead of getting buried by next gen news it can actually be part of it and really shine.

And then mention "oh and if you cant wait you can get the ps3 version"
miyamoto  +   1006d ago
This will be awesome if true!

ND hinted in an interview that that they made all of their PS3 game assets in very high resolutions ready if not easy to be ported on PS4.

Is this the reason for the delay?

Looks like there will be a trend of PS3-PS4 games coming this year

Diablo 3
Watch Dogs

Reading your comment history hurts me..

Loving a system is great, but your obsessing.
Just saying :p

Some people go far beyond 'loving a system'

They marry it.
Tonester925  +   1006d ago
I'm in a dilemma right now. I want to buy a PS3 for games like GTA V and such but I don't want to if they're going to be released on the PS4 as well..

doublejj  +   1006d ago
i would wait for the release of the PS4 due to the fact that you only have 3 and a half months till E3 and then after that you will have another 5 months to wait for the PS4 and it will be well worth the wait. that's what im doing i don't have a PS3 right now cause i don't want to invest my money just yet as the reward of me waiting will be a new system with these games available for the PS4 via the cloud by Gaikai.
Campy da Camper  +   1006d ago
Agreed. Epic 1st world problem for me. Can I really white knuckle it all summer and fall on it or will I cave? I reeeeally want to experience it for the 1st time in ps4 glory but the wait....
KaBaW  +   1006d ago
See, I also think the same way.. I'd rather buy it on the new system.
Same goes for Watch Dogs, I'd rather wait and buy that than get it on PS3.
NYC_Gamer  +   1007d ago
I'll wait for the PS4 version then
GiggMan  +   1006d ago
I agree. Although I'd probably want to hear this from Sony.
gillri  +   1007d ago
I can see this happening with alot of games tbh albeit with higher res texture, better framerates, native 1080p etc etc
plaZeHD  +   1006d ago
That would be AWESOME. Huge The Last Of Us fan here. I am more excited about The Last Of Us than ANYTHING, yes ANYTHING, even PlayStation 4.
Genuine-User  +   1006d ago
Same. Although the last of on PS4 seals the deal for me.
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   1006d ago

delicia  +   1006d ago
Cannot take this article seriously. It's, again, just rumors from Patcher. I'll wait for anything ND has to say.
BakedGoods  +   1006d ago
No kidding, Patcher's an armchair quarterback.
FarCryLover182  +   1006d ago
This is true, it is Pachter... but it does make logical sense to have a version on PS4 as well.
Zechs34  +   1006d ago
Looking forward to Getting The Last of Us ASAP, but I definitely do not see this happening. As much as the game would benefit from PS4, if anyone gets the most out of PS3, its Naughty Dog.

Besides, Pachter is right what, 1/17 times?

Game looks perfect just how it is.

June cannot come soon enough!
dboyc310  +   1006d ago
Exactly I don't see it happening either. If the release date for the console was close to the release date of the game the yea but it isn't. Why would someone wait out to get TLoU until November O.o? Most of the sells well happen in the first few weeks that's release which is in June unless they delay it again.
MrDead  +   1006d ago
I don't know if it will be a enhanced version maybe they're just making it so it works on the PS4.
Ares84HU  +   1006d ago
Last of Us 2 could be but the first one is for PS3.
baldulf  +   1006d ago
Well, if Pachter says so it must be true.

When was the guy wrong before? XD
FarCryLover182  +   1006d ago
I'll put it into some basic java code for you

for( int i = -1; i < o; i--){
System.out.print("All the time");
DigitalSmoke  +   1006d ago
Pachter has it wrong 88% of the time...

This and beyond on ps4 would be suicdr. The sales would be tiny with the months of time tlou at least would be out. Dont even see it happening with gta 5.
Alcohog  +   1006d ago
lol, no.
Dno  +   1006d ago
i hope to god that this time this guy is right!!!

(even tho i actually trust this guy he gets a lot of things right but idk if this is one of them)
THC CELL  +   1006d ago
I'd get both, the ps4 version should take even more advantage of the ai and make it very hardcore and also even ps4 gfx hmmmm
givemeshelter  +   1006d ago
For money reasons and ROI, it will launch on the PS3 and then come later on the PS4.
YourGreatUncle  +   1006d ago
I don't think it will. I think TLoU is gonna be the PS3's swan song before the PS4. Also this is Patcher we're talking about here. I have a better chance of finding a cure for cancer than he does being right on anything. This is the guy that said The Walking Dead had zero chance of winning GOTY at the VGAs and he would eat his hat if it did. I'm still waiting on the hat eating video.

Come on ppl are u serious? This guy is always full of crap. I mean dont get me wrong, it would be nice to see a ps4 version but the game is about to release in june & I dont want to wait until holidays to play this. Besides if sony did this then mightest will abandon the ps3. Remember they will continue to support the ps3 even after the ps4 launches. If it releases on the ps4 aswell as a launch title thats fine but still release it in june on the ps3 for those who dont want to wait.

This game is going to win GOTY hell yes :D
Deku-Johnny  +   1006d ago
Pachter called it, now The Last of Us will NEVER be on PS4.
Pozzle  +   1006d ago
It will "probably" happen? So he's basically might be released on PS4, or it might not be. Wow, What a vague and utterly useless "prediction".

What brilliant predictions will Patcher have next?
"A Mario game for Wii U is likely"?
"Microsoft will someday release a new Xbox console"?
"A new Call of Duty will 'probably' be released this year"?

i wouldn't look past this by Sony to not have THE LAST OF US end up on PS4 and from what i seen in the gameplay that was presented that this game visually is a really good looking game and the game is revolutionary as to what the PS4 is bringing to the table and the PS4 could definitely run this game smoothly and it would be a success. so Sony lets see y'all get it done. oh yea and about Patcher even though he is very controversial in his speaking, he more than likely is right about what he says. he predicted the rise and fall of the Nintendo Wii U and i followed all of what he said.
supremacy  +   1006d ago
I dont know but i feel This will eventually end up happening, not just with this games but a whole bunch of them.

Sony is already stating that the ps4 will have the best launch line up in history and publishers i am sure will want more sales.

Then you have publishers like ubisoft stating that watch dog is pretty much finalize for next gen platforms and that the current gen versions havent begun production.

Followed by naughty dog saying that the engine behind the last of us was built next gen ready.

It all sounds to me like more and more tripple A games will start releasing cross platform, until the current gen eventually fades away.

GTV along say a new COD and Sony's own exclusives will make the ps4 a very attractive proposition. But we shall see.

cyclindk  +   1006d ago
If it is indeed true I wonder how this will play out. Don't think we've ever had this sort of "bridge" between generations before.

PS3 version would sell millions I'm guessing, unless many switch to PS4 and then what... they sell less PS3 versions of the game, but SOME PS4 versions. Kinda splitting their sales across two platforms... I just don't know what's gonna happen! (Ideally, buying one copy gets you a voucher on the other for free!!!!) Maybe it will be a GAKAI title!

Anyway, game looks awesome PS34 FTW!!!

I'm not sure about that. They would have to completely rebuild the game since its made to use the most out of the Cell as possible.
