The Last of Us for PS4 is Real According to Insider; PS4 Version Listed on GameStop Germany's System

A couple days ago during a show on CNN Turk, Market Manager at Sony Eurasia Sercan Sülün said that The Last of Us will be coming to PS4. Since then Sony has denied but not really denied, saying that they have “nothing to say” about it. In the meanwhile industry Insider Pete Dodd mentioned that the port is indeed real, and it has also been spotted in GameStop Germany's system. (PS4, The Last Of Us)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 13

someone really needs to ban the word insider. insiders always claim something after someone else says something about it first, that gives them the ability to deflect blame when they are wrong.

The only way that's going to happen is if N4G changes it's motto from N4G- Hottest Game News & Rumours, to just 'Game News'. Seeing as rumours make up a considerable amount of the front page....i don't see that happening any time soon.

Why don't you just do what should be done when reading the words of an "insider"....take it with a grain of salt? Here, i have some left over for you - http://www.rawrecipebox.com...

On topic - I really hope this turns out to be true, *takes a pinch of salt from the above link*.


Lmao. Puff puff pass, bro. I want some of what you're smoking.

WOW! How did Pete Dodd come to that conclusion? It's not like a head from Sony already leaked it or anything...

Do you think I can trade in my PS3 version of the game for the PS4 version? Seems fair, no
Clover904  +   116d ago
Nope. You paid for a ps3 game, and that's what you got. It takes money and man power to recode a game for a new platform, so I don't see any reason why you feel entitled to the new version.
Heisenburger  +   116d ago

I think it's very generous that certain games had an upgrade plan available. Very generous.

I updated my PC and my copy of Arkham City got a huge graphics boost. Didn't have to pay a dime for the enhanced graphics. Why should I pay for enhanced graphics for Last of Us?
Pintheshadows  +   116d ago
Haha, incendy35. Please read the above comment again and realise how silly it is in every way.
cannon8800  +   116d ago

Bro, I understand what you're trying to say; I too have a high end pc. But you have to understand that Sony does not sell upgradable ps4 hardware. They sell: consoles, games, software and accessories. That's how they make money.

He's trolling obviously calm down.

Dualshockers, go and report about news - you know, actual confirmed news.

The output from this site has been almost nothing but rumors and speculation from neogaf.

It's such a tabloid of a website.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   116d ago
I constantly see people like you show such disdain for this website....yet you are still here, why? There are literally thousands of gaming websites out there to choose from.

I'm not telling you to leave...but it just doesn't make sense to me to constantly complain but not do anything about it.

Did i ever tell you the definition of insanity?

I don't have a problem with Dualshockers. I'm a fan, actually. Well, I was.

I'm wondering what has happened to this site because the majority of it's ''content'' now is rumors, speculation, what ifs, and stories based around twitter messages from Thuway, Mort, and others.

And can I ask, why do you take such a personal interest in what sites I frequent?

That's kind of unsettling, and insane - do you know the definition. Suppose not.
Abriael  +   116d ago
@wardestroyr: actually I invite you to check my posting history. The VAST majority is actual confirmed news. Unfortunately people seem to love rumors more, and those tend to be more visible here.

Edit: can disagree as much as you want. But numbers are numbers. Just in the most recent page of my submission history there are 16 news, 4 rumors, second page is 18 news, 2 rumors, and so forth. It's obvious where the majority is.

@wardestroyr I understand it's N4G - everyone loves rumors. That's why they reach the most degrees on the site.

Your a good writer, and seem very adept at hunting out possible stories, but why don't you start writing features on top of reporting the rumors.

I've got no agenda with Dualshockers. I'm a regular visitor. Just dismayed at the amount of rumors floating about lately.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   116d ago
"And can I ask, why do you take such a personal interest in what sites I frequent?"

I don't, i just find it weird how often i see people say "N4G sucks" or "N4G is nothing but rumours"....yet they continue to post and stay here, despite there being gaming sites out there that aren't as "rumour centric". You just said that Dualshockers should "report about news - you know, actual confirmed news."...yet you know that N4G is where the "Hottest Game News & *Rumours*" are reported. It's just a little weird to see is all.

I apologise if i offended you, i *did* say i wasn't telling you to leave or anything though.

The last part of my above comment was a Far Cry 3 reference, btw.

Edit: And Abriael is right, the majority of his submissions are labelled as 'news', i just took a look. But i guess people will see what they want to see, as always. Funny how i never see people say "good job on those NEWS articles, Abriael". But the few rumour articles take precedence, (im not ranting at you specifically).

Abriael  +   116d ago
@wardestroyr: that's because I'm the news editor. I love writing features, but unfortunately my given role takes precedence, and since it normally takes between 12 and 14 hours of my daily time, the time for writing features is very scant. I do write some, but that's only when I'm not exhausted when I get at the end of the day :D

And at times I'd also like to dedicate a couple hours to playing some games :P

I've never wrote N4G sucks. I love this site - the amount of times I've almost cried from laughter reading the comments from ''supporters'' of each console is numbering quite high.

It's just that the proliferation of rumors has gone out of hand lately - I've been visiting N4G for a long time now, and I don't recall ever seeing so many rumors fly up and around the site - but is N4G, so you have to take it at face value.

In a nutshell, Abriael is good, I like Dualshockers, the rumors interest me as a gamer, but articles/features would be more welcome.

For example, with all the news about Sony with layoffs, studio restructuring etc you could write a nice article explaining what is going on, how the situation could be improved, and how the sky is not falling in. I know Mort commented, but that's not enough at this stage with many proclaiming the end is nigh for Sony Computer Entertainment.

Lots of FUD being slung around lately.

"I've never wrote N4G sucks."

I know, my bad, that's due to how i worded my comment. I used quotation marks in a general sense, not specifically. Sorry dude.

I completely agree with the amount of rumour articles, i lurked here for years before i made an account and the percentage of rumour articles is much higher than it was. But yeah, grains of salt should be taken, and the nature of this website should be taken into account.

Maybe they just want to save it for E3 to be able to say: A PS4 version of The Last of Us will be available..... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOWW!

I mean, so the publics reaction can be:

And we would all be ok with that. If they released it at $40 or less and put it on the PS Store immediately following their presentation, it would see massive numbers. I'd love that!
Eonjay  +   116d ago
LOL the insider in this case being a corporate VP of Sony in Turkey during an official interview. Don't really need an "insider" to confirm this. Don't get more official than that.

Didn't this reliable insider, Pete Dodd, just got called out in another thread about spreading fake info on the former director of Driveclub? Dudalshockers, it would be nice for you guys to stand on your own two feet and write something imaginative rather than keep constantly using Tweet and so-called reliable insiders of Neogaf (whom are just avg. Joes like you and me) and create rumored news for your site.

"my friend told me" isn't exactly more reliable than Dodd yanno. Besides, layoffs and people leaving their job very often have at least two points of view to them.

What a useless article. Why do we need an insider when a high level Sony exec already outted it?
DS and these so called insiders!

Dualshockers is the biggest offender of this and they really need to dial it back now.

I guess this will be the last insider article form Dualshockers for a while since FamousMortimer aka...trusted insider Pete Dodd is exposed as a fraud and banned from Neogaf.

Why are we fighting over insiders?

We should be talking about how amazing that PS4 version is going to look, what they are adding to it to make it unique to the PS4, and the fact that it might run at 60fps. I hope they bundle in Left Behind, cause I still haven't purchased it yet.
