The Last of Us is one of the best-looking games on the PlayStation 3, and it may very well be the best-looking game of the entire generation from a technical standpoint. So seriously, what more do you want?
The main reason I want the game ported is simply for its multi-player. The multi-player was great and a port would bring life back into it.
1080p 60fps would be pretty nice as well and yeah, it's a great multiplayer game so why not port it? Not everybody likes to keep every single old console hooked up to their TV.
More time to develop Last Of Us 2 For PS4!
Another reason could be that when playing the game on ps3, the ds4 works with it if you tether. I have one of my 2 ds4's constantly connected to my ps3, and switch round every now and then
Well said. Why tether a classic to a console. I want a definitive edition for PS4, and I'll pay. I'm sure I'm not alone.
Dude ^ the team working on TLOU2 wouldn't be working on the port of the first game, it would be given to a separate smaller dev team filled with beginners so they can get some experience working with the console architecture.
I was going to agree with this article but your actually right. I loved the multiplayer and would still play it if it wasn't for me being so lazy and getting the disc to insert into my ps3 lol. I would def buy it again (only if it sony had the special $10 special from ps3 to ps4) I had great times playing with my buddies and if it were to come over to ps4 I would add another hundred hours into it.
Well in my opinion. Don't be surprise if it is 39.99 (since it's a great game) or 59.99 because I'll buy it in a flash like I did last time. My ps3 went to my father since I don't need it anymore, but I have my ps4 on me and I'll feeling like buying all games that are coming to it like tlou for example.
ill give you one reason why it should. its the best game of the last generation. notice how i just said game and not exclusive game. i would definately pay again for a ps4 copy! do it sony...i dare you ;).
unless you play the game through PSNow on ps4.
There are just little things they can improve on like the missing reflection, but that's about it.
If it will be on PS Now then a port isn't really needed. I do want to play the multiplayer again.
1 reason it should: I just bought a PS4 a couple hours ago and I don't have a PS3.
then get a PS3.
I had 2 die on me. I'm done with the PS3.
Personally, I don't want to migrate back to a dual shock 3. I'd rather continue playing the last of us using a dual shock 4 within a next gen environment.
^^^ That means either you're very unlucky (low chance) or you were doing something wrong to those consoles like putting them in a closed, hot, dusty space (more likeley.)
^This. I moved onto the PS4 and have some PS3 titles left - not being able to play The Last of Us again sucks, and whilst PS Now solves it. Having to pay is trivial.
fat ps3? those were meant to die sooner than later. Slim PS3 should last you longer.
I would only be interested in a ps4 port if they implemented the things that we saw in the e3 demo into the full game, especially the A.I., the dynamic A.I. that reacts according to player actions, like having very good ducking animations, or hiding behind corners to ambush the player, or enemies that grab you and call out to their allies to shoot you. None of these things actually happen in the real game. even RE5 had enemies that grab you outside of scripted in-game cutscenes. Like everyone who hates Tomb Raider says, a graphical update+all the dlc is not worth $60, right?
They ain't gonna do all that for a port, especially when it seems the vast majority were completely satisfied by actual game, some even cite it game of the gen. It's weird the way ND blatantly got away with it but oh well.
In a few years, upgraded PS3 titles on PS4 will seem more interesting to me, but for now I'd rather hear that most teams are working on new IPs with just a few working on updating some long lost PS1/PS2 titles. The Last of Us was out in 2013, for Zod's sake. So was Tomb Raider for that matter, though people seem to like the upgrade. Idk just my opinion.
I think a new TLoU would be better.
He makes fair points. It wont get that much better cos its already so good and Naughty Dog have better things to do clearly. But... If someone other than Naughty Dog ported it, it would make all his point moot. Just the opinion of a cow. PS We can play PS3 games on PS4? WTF? When did this happen?
"Fun fact that everyone already knows: The PlayStation 4 can run PlayStation 3 games." Errr... what?
What if they'd been screwing with us the whole time and the PS4 is backwards-compatible?
That would have to go down as the greatest piece of trolling ever conceived! Edit: Not sure what the disagree was for - I love my PS4 but it sure as shit cant play PS3 games.
My thoughts exactly. Either I've been duped or the person really needs to check his facts..
Author of article is a moron for many reasons but mostly this. Do your research before spreading lies.
Forget the ports concentrate on the sequel for ps4 , there is far too much talk of porting games over which people already own.
No where does it say that Naughty Dog has to be the one to make the port...remastered version of games get outsourced to different developers all of the time. The story, pacing, and gameplay elements have already been created, no need for them to waste time coding it over to the PS4, and other developer could do that. There are plenty of PS4 adopters either form xbox, nintendo, pc, or those who just never played the game who would love to experience but can't...why hate on them?
Where are you getting this hate nonsense from? What is it with you folk you here something you don't like and it's classed as hating just like those who say oh why bother commenting if you don't like it BECAUSE I CAN. I'm sure there are many people who owned other consoles who have a ps4 and want to play it but as i say it's my opinion, i'm not hating or forcing it on any one, it's a forum i've had my say that's that. It's my opinion that developers should concentrate on new games instead of releasing a game that came out a year ago with a few wee upgrades.
"Fun fact that everyone already knows: The PlayStation 4 can run PlayStation 3 games." ...What? I guess they're refering to PlayStation Now?
Wait a sec, outside of the announced PlayStation Now, how is this possible? From the article: "Fun fact that everyone already knows: The PlayStation 4 can run PlayStation 3 games. Unfortunately, while that fact does indeed meet the whole “I wanna play The Last of Us on my PlayStation 4” thing in the most literal sense, obviously it's not what that particular audience wants. No, what said individuals want is to play a PlayStation 4 version of The Last of Us on their PlayStation 4 systems. Geez. Picky much?"
I would like to ask an honest question here Whats with all these ports of PS3/360 games that people seem to excite over? Tomb Raider for example We have all already played the game. Sure the graphics/framerate are better , but it is still the SAME game. Same gameplay, same story etc. Its like watching a BluRay rip of MOVIE A and then you have the full fledged 1080 BluRay of MOVIE A itself - its still the same movie - same story, characters etc.
Because once an older format its dead ie vhs I still wanna watch those older movies. It's about convenience and I'd pay for the same thing of the same quality for convenience off its really worth the monetary investment. I feel like the last of us yes with our, Duke nukem forever not so much.
Yeah but if you hadn't played the game yet then the next gen port would be a better option.
It's idiots who sold their ps3 and regret it, or they had xbox last gen instead of ps3 (lol idiots).
"We have all already played the game." Except for the fact that most have not... I am sorry that I missed out on it last year as out totally went under my radar and is a great game but couldn't be happier with the better and improved Definitive Edition. Now I am really watching out for the sequel with excitement.
Obviously the game was pushing the ps3 hard. With the added power of the ps4 the game would look truly amazing-er than it did on ps3. I bought it on the ps3 and I would gladly buy it again to see it running at 60fps higher res textures and of course 1080p!!! The game should be ported end of story! Naughty dog doesn't have to handle the port, someone else could do it so ND could concentrate on another IP.
it would be cool to see 1080p and 60fps last of us, will it happen? probably not. but this game is great and i still have it for PS3 soo idk
Enough with the ports, those funds can be put to better use in making a wholly new game or more DLC instead. If this was a very old game that came out in like 2007 or 2006, or a game from a previous generation that needs a remake i can understand it, but it just came out last year! Get a ps3 and play it or wait for PlayStation Now please.
"Get a PS3 and Play it or wait for Playstation Now"....Really... So if someone sold their PS3 to buy a PS4 you're telling them to buy a PS3 again? or If someone has a lousy internet connection or an internet cap you're telling them to play it on now?? Really?
No, let's just port over ALL of the ps3 games to the ps4 to fit the needs of those people who sold their ps3 or never had one, because who needs new games , seriously. Screw the rest that still have PS3s and bought or going to buy Ps4s, they don't deserve new games in a new console generation, what where they thinking ??!! The Last of Us was great, lets port that, also GTA V, Bioshock , and Ni No Kuni while you're at it, hell maybe even Uncharted2/godOfWar3/Demon' ;sSouls/Infamous/GT6-5/Ratchet/ Resistance/Killzones....
No port, just sequel please.
A port would make sense, it won't mean much to PS3 owners but can be the final factor that finally convinces non-ps3 owners who want to get into console gaming for the first time with the PS4 or 360 gamers who are unhappy about paying 100 extra for Kinect. However, I don't think its gonna happen because Sony probably want TLOU to be the killer app for Playstation Now
Runs to put Last of Us into PS4 http://cdn0.dailydot.com/up...
I am now convinced this site is a trolling site. Another article from this very author ( http://www.gamezone.com/ori... tells us another game more deserving than TLoU. But I guess he has trolled quite successfully...I guess.
I want this game ported because I switched over from an xbox360 and won't be able to experience the game unless it gets added to playstation now library (which if it does I won't need the port)
This is fucking rediculous, theres no logical reason for The Last of Us not to be on Ps4? and if any of you are going to say so they can work on The Last of Us 2, there are people who only have a Ps4 that haven't played the first one yet.
If they did a definitive version like Tomb Raider I'd buy it in a heartbeat!
So, five out of his ten reasons are basically the same: it won't look that much better anyways... what a lame piece. lol It will look improved enough, but that is not the point. The point is that the game is a masterpiece, and bringing it to the ps4, more people would be able to enjoy it. Also, should there ever be a The Last of Us 2, it would be nice to have both games in the same system.
Definitive edition or nothing. Ports are lame without graphical improvments.
PSNow titles can receive enhancements and TLOU will certainly be a flagship title for the service. So in essence, it already is coming to PS4. Just to add, a lot of people have switched over from the 360 to the PS4, they'd certainly jump in as would many others (I'd double dip myself out of convenience).
