I REALLY hope they continue Joel and Ellie's story. AHHHH so excited!!! Joel is my new favorite playstation character!
abzdine  +   669d ago
on PS4! i....can....Barely...imagine!

Greatness awaits

I saw Man of Steel and I will be honest. Even as a game that I haven't beaten yet, The Last of Us already has a better story and direction
guitarded77  +   669d ago
The game is so amazing.

The opening level is set where I'm from, so many of my local friends and I were discussing how it's kinda eerie to see the onset of it all where we're at. Also adds a bit of emotional connection to Joel being a So-Cent Texas boy. No spoilers, but the opening had me hooked.
MidnytRain  +   669d ago

Thanks for the SPOILERS!! Now I know they DON'T die! >_<
linkenski  +   669d ago
After the ending i feel like i need more closure, but honestly i'd rather they leave Joel and Ellie's chapter where it ended rather than making up new contrived plots for 2 new games. That's disrespect to their own franchise imo.

Lucas and Spielberg
da_2pacalypse  +   669d ago
I'm not sure if I want a sequel. I think the fact that Naughty Dog did something new like this was really amazing. Why not do something new again? That's just my opinion, but I would still buy a sequel.
trenso1  +   669d ago
the ending was so grey like it a win or lose ending it was just in the middle and i need more closure for it game is amazing
kraigslist_killa  +   669d ago

Imagine what the top-notch NaughtyDog could achieve with PS4.
mario19  +   669d ago
Wait just a minute there captain... Since when did Man of Steel even release. This is as fake as Johnny Appleseed sitting on a carcass. Why? Because he said so himself

"We shall not perish for all the wrong The Last of Us presented"

Well there you go, you heard it here first or maybe for the millionth time

2 hours of entertainment vs 20+

And games cost more. Like when cod made more money then avatar i was smh at the comparison

A win for the gaming industry!
miyamoto  +   669d ago
Hey i saw what you did there!

Movie execs are paying attention to these types of news.

Sony PlayStation FTW and congrats!

Hottest game on YouTube too.

The game is selling itself marvelously. And its not an FPS.

I know Sony and Activision are teaming up to make video games industry compete with movies in the highest level possible. Get ready boys!

Great! I was worried this would not sell well
miyamoto  +   669d ago
Great Game > sales figures
Great Game > sales figures

sales obsessed fanboys are the cancer of gaming society, they take away the fun of enjoying the actual games themselves.

like Uncharted 2 TLOU sold itself by its quality not by huge advertising budget

About 13,570,000,000 results (0.21 seconds) @ Google

I remember the days when nerdy movies like The Matrix or TLOTRings found mainstream success

I hope the gaming society matures up and see greatness in the time of fabricated success pop stories

I hope many giant publishers follow Naughty Dog's lead again like they did Uncharted 2

“Uncharted 13: A Lush Movie, Justin Bieber as Drake.”

See this is the scenario Microsoft wants video games to be- the video game apocalypse.

TLOU is trying to destroy this negative trend. This is ND's relevant political social commentary about gaming.

shhhh.....don't get too excited. Don't give the gov't any funny ideas because they will think about excising a tax on violent games........
showtimefolks  +   669d ago
Single player is 16-18 hours master piece

MP is really thought out and very balanced, it's not a run and gun but more of a wait and see, more of a thing man's game

I am very hopeful this goes on to sell at minimum 5 plus million, please tell all your friends on who a ps3, Sony has done some advertisement(I seen some ads on espn.com and superman movie also had LOU advertisement) but we need to get the word out and really make sure this game is experienced by as many gamers as possible

Out all your fanboys differences aside this is a masterpiece and deserves all the publicity and than some
RedHawkX  +   669d ago
one day this game will have to decide what game it wants to become and that day has arrived! greatness is here.

TLoUs stands for hope!!

and TLOU's budget is not even half of that from the MoS's... This is why blocking used games is retarded. If you make good games then they are profitable just like Miyamoto said the other day.

rpd123  +   669d ago
And it also costs fifty dollars more to get than a ticket to Man of Steel, and I'm sure that has a lot to do with why it grossed more. Man of Steel was great, but The Last of Us is a lot more entertaining. Definitely worth the extra cash.
showtimefolks  +   669d ago
Like Nintendo said make great games and give people to buy new and keep the games as long as possible so make Great games with a lot of replay ability

LOU is a master piece and in my 23 years of gaming there are very few games that touch on the subject matter. This should be played by all gamers

LOU is just not a great game it's a experience that much be experienced by all gamers

Enjoy, it's some game. You're in for a treat with the opening sequence as well ;)
xPhearR3dx  +   669d ago
The opening sequence (The Prologue I should say) was a total glitch fest for me. Anyone else have issues? I had missing audio, unloadable cut-scenes, 5+minute load times, the game automatically skipping cut-scenes and a few other issues. Once the game took off, I have't had any issues, I'm just hoping these don't continue. It's off to a bit of a slow start, but the gameplay is fantastic, can't wait to see what comes up next.

Good to see Remember Me is still in the charts :)
doctorstrange  +   669d ago | Funny
I forgot about that one
Convas  +   669d ago
Alos88  +   669d ago
Why exactly are people disagreeing with me here? Is it too off topic? Because I don't see Remember Me getting it's own article on it's sales, or enough attention in general for that matter.
Games like Remember Me may well go extinct next gen, as the market for mid-tier titles shrinks to nothing. If you think that's worth disagreeing with, then I hope you don't regret it when they're gone.
SpideySpeakz  +   669d ago
Yes, I down voted your bubble for being off topic.
Alos88  +   669d ago
You know what the differece between you and me is?
I don't try bringing down a person's bubbles based on something that small.
MadMax  +   669d ago
Have to agree. Remember me is an excellent game and anyone that writes it off without even playing it, is seriously missing out! The music and the world are just incredible and different! It reminds me of blade runner kinda.
SilentNegotiator  +   669d ago
Gosh, maybe because people *disagree* with you? Maybe other people aren't glad to see "Remember Me" on the charts because it was incredibly mediocre? Or even that R.M. has absolutely nothing to do with this article?

You don't always lose a bubble for getting downvoted.

also last of us is so dang good you gotta play it guys. bought a copy day one and its so so good.
FreshRevenge  +   669d ago
I actually got the game. The problem with this game is that it wasn't hyped up enough like TLOU but than again, Remember Me has a new developer making the game. Whereas TLOU developers have been in the spot light since the success of the Uncharted series.

The game is rather good and enjoyable, I played it about 4 times and got all the trophies in the game. I hope they make a sequel. Gamers who enjoy scifi shouldn't pass this one up!
Soldierone  +   669d ago
Got this game too, and its awesome as well! The music is amazing in it!

A-laughing-horse  +   669d ago
Sony did a great job with the advertising as well. Most advertised game I think I have ever seen from them. Besides maybe killzone 2

Loved the game surely top 3 this generation. The MP is amazing also except I would have loved a survival mode and random attacks from the infected in MP.

Naughty Dog, you are amazing
mochachino  +   669d ago
So about 2-3 mill copies already. That's amazing for an exclusive this late in the gen.

Looks like Sony just made another killer app franchise. Now all I can think if is Last of Us 2 for ps4.
Heisenburger  +   669d ago
Keep in mind that it cost nearly twice as much for an adult movie ticket as it does for a new game. ;) lol

I beat the game last night. I didn't go see Man of Steel because I was otherwise preoccupied.

This is the game that Naughty Dog should have released after Uncharted 2. Top notch.
Lovable  +   669d ago
It's a good sending off for the PS3 before they go to PS4.
Old McGroin  +   669d ago
Are you serious? Did I read that right? It costs twice as much for an adult movie ticket when compared to a new game? So if The Last Of Us cost $60.00 it would cost $120.00 for an adult ticket to see Superman?! That's a seriously expensive cinema, stop going there!
Heisenburger  +   669d ago
Yes, it was commentary on the overpriced tickets of the cinema. :)
Gimmemorebubblez  +   669d ago
Am I the only one who thinks TLOU should be a once off masterpiece and shouldn't get a sequel. I just finished TLOU and I do not know how this can be topped.

ginsunuva  +   669d ago
It would pale in comparison to Joel and Ellie, because nothing can ever compare to them.
nugnugs  +   669d ago
I'd like to see something involving Ellie as an adult. Like a John Connor kind of thing, some resistance leader. She could be your boss.
Conzul  +   669d ago
I agree completely.

My dad watched me play the whole thing and he'd love a sequel, but I think that a sequel would be just that - a **sequel**.

I seriously hope that there's no more to the story...the ending is just so perfect!
Rai  +   669d ago
I loved the game, I was able to beat it saturday night. Its been along time since I went on a gaming spree like that.

However its expected, it would take at least 5 times the amount of people to watch the movie because the tickets are cheaper than the game itself. I'm glad that its doing well but I thought it was to be expected.
BattleTorn  +   669d ago
Very true. But the movies audience is probably much larger.
KontryBoy706  +   669d ago

why is this news and why was this comparison made? This has happened many times before, also theres a difference in selling a product for 60 dollars, and a product for 7-12 dollars. Also, completely different type of entertainment? The last of us article flood is getting annoying now.
Dan_scruggs  +   669d ago
If everyone keeps jerking this game off its gonna start to get tender. Seriously. Any number of games can make the claim of being bigger than a feature films release. Any of the last 5 Call of Duty games, Mario Kart Wii, hell even Wii Fit can say they had a bigger debut than Man of Steel. The Last of Us (a great game) will never match the profits generated by the Man of Steel. Not in terms of profit or cultural impact. In time perhaps it will but everyone needs to stop before the over hyping gets out of control.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   669d ago
Oh you, let them have their fun.
Dan_scruggs  +   669d ago

It's comparing like for like during the same time frame. That's it. No need to get all aggravated about it.
