The Last Of Us On PS4 – Would You Buy It?

Recently, rumors have been spreading of a PlayStation 4 edition of the game. Hopes were raised and soon quashed when it turned out to be a hoax / lie. But wouldn't the re – release of such an important game in the PlayStation catalogue be a boon for the newly released console? (PS4, The Last Of Us)

I would buy it, but only because I don't own a PS3.
allformats  +   279d ago
Yes, I would.
inveni0  +   278d ago
I would pay a $10 PS3->PS4 upgrade! :)
zeee  +   278d ago
^ This.
thekhurg  +   279d ago
I would buy it day one, even at $60. I also own a PS3 and have the game on that system.
ZombieKiller  +   278d ago
This and GTA V.

I have so many games to play and am kicking myself for not picking this up. I love ND and the INCREDIBLE worlds they create. Not to mention all their products are the highest quality....

I ran into the "too many games to play" issue this season. Arkham and GTA are 2 of my favorite series....you guys could imagine what this year was like for me. So I didn't get to TLOU. I also bought a PS4 and am dying to play something on it in the worst way. I mean a REAL game too. Not BF4 or some rehash of a game that has "fish AI" and makes you pay for Wolf Skins.

To make a short story long...Yes, I would LOVE to buy this for my PS4.
king_george  +   278d ago
Oh man are you in for a treat when u play TLoU. Beautiful game :) story is top notch too. Its better than Uncharted in my honest opnion and thats saying something because i freakin love uncharted
CannonB8  +   278d ago
I can only suggest you take some time off work, get a decent sound system, close all the curtains and crank up the volume. You are in for a helluva treat.

It's genuinely one of those games I wish I could forget I ever played, just to experience it again.

Lukas_Japonicus  +   278d ago
I own it on PS3 and i would buy it for PS4 in a heartbeat. For the upgraded visuals (mmmmm 1080p 60fps TLOU) and because i would want to show my support (again) to a videogame company that puts as much care, love and attention into their games as ND did with TLOU...(watch the making of The Last Of Us documentary and you will see what i mean).

I say there is a 100% chance I would get it again
dooge  +   278d ago
Hmmm, those are good odds.
Xer0_SiN  +   278d ago
did i buy it day one on ps3? yes! would i buy it again on ps4 even if it was just a port? yes! is it worth it? yes!

*pointing index fingers to the sky*
zeee  +   278d ago
put a little groove in it
garos82  +   278d ago
yes I would definitely double dip especially for 60fps@1080p
himdeel  +   278d ago
At a highly discounted price point yes.
cgoodno  +   278d ago
Only as part of the $10 PS3->PS4 upgrade. Otherwise, no.
Ezz2013  +   278d ago
even if it was a remake with ps4 gfx ?
frostypants  +   278d ago
I wouldn't, because I have it on PS3 and frankly, it's good enough. An increase in resolution wouldn't make enough difference. They'd have to add a whole lot more textures, animations, etc. to make a PS4 version interesting, and no way they'd bother doing that just for a port.

Seriously, this game is gorgeous on PS3.

I have a PS3 and played it on that PS3 and still have it installed on my HD and I would still buy another copy for my PS4.
iamnsuperman  +   279d ago
I wouldn't as I got it on my PS3 but other, non PS3 owners, probably will. It is a very good game
pyramidshead  +   279d ago
If there's a dramatic difference, as in if it runs better, then maybe. But not until about 2015/16 as I'm sure it's not going to go anywhere.
Galacticos  +   279d ago
In a heartbeat.
Walker  +   279d ago
Yes, i do. like a boss !
JohnnyTower  +   279d ago
TLOU maybe. GTA V definitely.
NeXXXuS  +   278d ago
I am disappoint.
JohnnyTower  +   278d ago
There is WAY more replay value to Grand Theft Auto than TLOU. The replay value is what would attract me to games I have already beaten.

@garos to each there own. Sneaking past dudes or stabbing them in the neck is great the first time through. I like the variety in GTA and that is what keeps me coming back. I don't really play much of either game online though.

garos82  +   278d ago
@Johnny disagree.I've had both titles at launch buttlou multiplayer keeps me coming back more than gta 5.and I played it again the other day even though I've yet to finish kz:sf.I've barely started playing the multiplayer for that yet
frostypants  +   278d ago
@garos82, I just tried the multiplayer for TLoU for the first time myself recently. Holy hell...it's awesome. Didn't know what I was missing. Love how lone wolves get obliterated.
king_george  +   278d ago
Eh GTA5 is good for the story and side missions but once u get past that and try out the online its really nothing amazing (the online i mean). Multiplayer is just flat and boring in my opinion.

Now The Last of Us oh man. That multiplayer has me hooked like a crack addict. Its so different than other games. Teamwork is everything in this game. No running and gunning in this gem. Keep that in cod. Instead u have to stick to ur squad or pretty much get ur ass kicked
KAPA89  +   279d ago
I already have it on PS3...but if there is a next episode on PS4 then DUH!
LightofDarkness  +   279d ago
I think it would be good for those who've been swayed from the Xbox camp and never really experienced PS exclusives before. I doubt most who have played it would play it again, unless there's some fairly expansive new content and perhaps alternate endings.
Neonridr  +   278d ago
I am one of those swayers... :P
TheFallenAngel  +   279d ago
I would. If they include all the DLC.
twinspectre  +   279d ago
what about a Hell No ?
already beated it and why they should release this game on PS4 it doesn't make any sense
Lukas_Japonicus  +   279d ago
To give people who have yet to play it/ don't own a PS3 a chance of experiencing it maybe? Some people might only own a PS4. So to those people it makes perfect sense. But i guess because YOU have "beated" it then they shouldn't release it /s.

ShutUpDonny  +   278d ago
I usually don't like re-releases, but in the case of a new console, it's a good way to pass the time before the originals titles arrives. I will buy it.
MestreRothN4G  +   279d ago
I probably wouldn't.

The game ran 100% flawlessly to me and I don't need graphics ANY better than TLOU's, so I don't see anything that a much more powerful machine could do to improve the already great experience had on PS3.
Eonjay  +   279d ago
The would add it to the trade up program. I would trade up and pay $10 for the PS4 version. Depending on what came with it (all DLC plus updated remaster visuals) I might.
thecowsaysmoo  +   279d ago
They should put this game on the Xbox One.
Majin-vegeta  +   278d ago
You have a better chance of the winning the lottery than that ever happening xD.
Regis  +   278d ago
Actually more like a better chance at being struck by lightning, eaten by a shark, hit in the head by a mugger, being run over by a car, or dying in an airplane crash then either winning the lottery or a port to xbox.
PixelNinja  +   279d ago
I would, I missed out on the Playstation 3 last gen, so if they would ever release it for the PS4 or stream it via that gakai service then that would be great.
ForgottenProphecy  +   279d ago
There are only two games I would buy again with a PS4 port.
Grand Theft Auto 5, and The Last of Us
Salooh  +   278d ago
GT6 to racing fans too :P ..
ForgottenProphecy  +   278d ago
Not a racing fan myself, but if I were I'd probably throw GT6 on there.
Tzunoy  +   279d ago
Well Fanboys for sure.
MikeGdaGod  +   279d ago
i beat the game but my gf missed the last 3 hours of watching me playing and is still pissed at me for finishing it without her seeing the end.....so yes.

the game is awesome enough for me to replay....but i have Gamefly so its not much of a dilemma for me...i play everything
DanielGearSolid  +   278d ago
Havent played it yet, so hell yes
princejb134  +   278d ago
Takwin  +   278d ago
Yes I would buy it. I have a Wii U and was previously an XBOX guy. I need it for my PS4, along with GTA5 and Ni No Kuni. Thanks!
Riderz1337  +   278d ago
If it has some notable improvements (Such as 60 FPS 1080P) then maybe. Also, it shouldn't be 60$ unless it will include all the DLC.
nategrigs  +   278d ago
I envision something along the lines of tomb raider for the ps4 (definitive edition). They will make sure to make as much money as possible on the ps3 version before announcing it for next gen
Seraphemz  +   278d ago
They should have the upgrade program for this one..
psDrake  +   278d ago
If you haven't played it I would say yes but ps3 graphs were so amazing already and I don't see how you can make that game better. Sure it would be smoother maybe a bit more graphically advanced but ps3 version is amazing.
OhReginald  +   278d ago
Yes i would. I already have the last of us platinum on ps3. I would love to get a last of us platinum on ps4.

I would imagine the ps4 edition to have infected in multiplayer, and or horde mode. 1080p 60 fps. And add on dlc.

BoneMagnus  +   278d ago
I just ordered it from Amazon last night for $35. I have never bought a next gen remake of game, I'd rather spend money on something new altogether rather than a prettier version of a game I already played.

Never say never, tho'.
XboxFun  +   278d ago
I have no doubt Sony will re-release this title. They pretty much started the fad of re-releasing old games with just a graphic update and selling them back to their users, and they found it work.

TLoU will no doubt also work. I hope they at least add extra content or something to make it worth a re-purchase.
G20WLY  +   278d ago
lol what a negative outlook - what about those that go for Sony product in a new gen and in the past they never had the chance to play these games?

If there are some people that buy the game twice, that's their choice and their right to do so. :)
mhunterjr  +   278d ago
I think there are a lot of people who will own a ps4 who didn't own a ps3, I think those folks would appreciate a remake.

I would never by a re-released version of something I already purchased and beat. But if it was my first go at the title , why not?

For example, I plan on getting the next gen tomb raider re-release.

OhReginald  +   278d ago
Very true. A lot of my friends who where 360 only gamers missed out kn all of naughty dog games because they hated the ps3. Now they have a ps4 so i think its time for sony to remake last of us and possibly the uncharted games
Summons75  +   278d ago
No but that's because I already own it on Ps3
ninjagoat  +   278d ago
I'm for the game stays where it is. maybe gakai down the line but the next game would be more in line for PS4.

Remastered titles.

I'm sick off them and its a lazy way to get more money out off people. Esp if they charge full price for the game. Remember we ain't talking 40 pounds a game anymore.

I own the last gen consoles. I own the retro consoles if i want to play them i will. PS4 deserves new games. I understand he last of us is a stunner and one the best games off the last gen that's no doubt.

But why open the flood gates for remastered titles when we have gakai on the horizon. We have enough to deal with spending are money on the new titles instead off picking up games we already own.

because the Gaikai version will look just like the PS3 version (with input lag). People want a better looking version that look more like PS4 games.
