What are the positives and negatives of Naughty Dog releasing The Last Of Us on Sony's new console?
Pro- it's last of us on ps4. It's going to be flipping amazing and it will look amazing.
I agree, but it already looked amazing and Ive played it to death. The big CON here is the time and resources it would take Naughty Dog to develop a remake rather than make something new. I am not selling my PS3 or TLoU so I would rather see something new.
Except they would likely contract out the ps4 port rather than doing it themselves. Their talents are too valuable to waste on a porting job.
I can think of one con: - I'm going to be $60 poorer :((
I just hope they integrate the Infected into more of the combat ala Left Behind. Yeah, it would invovle alot of gameplay balancing and tweaking, but it would definitely add a fresh take on the game. Oh yeah and if they also increase the player count in Multiplayer to like 24 (12v12), it would need bigger versions of the maps Obviously. Basically I'm hoping they don't just do a straight port. Tomb Raider:DE got heavily criticized for that.
I do not see any cons about this. I would love a PS4 TLOU. I hate not having party chat on my ps3.
I would buy day 1 last of us on Ps4,life
The Last Of Us on the PS4 The pro's it will be brilliant! The con's it will be brilliant! Everybody a winner then ; D
One of my top 3 but I already played it so I don't feel the need to buy it again. I'm sure it'll sell well on the ps4. Excellent game.
I hated that I did not buy myself TLOU for PS3, but thankfully they made it for next-gen, with updated graphics, when you just couldn't bellieve that it could get any better.
Rumor, not confirmed.
Pros: You can play it on your PS4 Cons: You have to buy the same game twice.
Implying that everyone had already bought it. This isn't only for past owners of the game, it's for people who never had a ps3 to experience it themselves or those who want the game with all it's DLC for the same cost as the game originally was with better hardware. I'd say that's pretty fair.
"Cons: You have to buy the same game twice." Not at all. I see MOST sales coming from all the people who never owned a PS3 (keep in mind, many gamers jumped ship from XBox to PS this gen.) That being said, I'm sure there will still be a small percentage that will re-buy it. I personally won't be one, UNLESS they offer the PS3 to PS4 upgrade deal. Now, that would be too good to pass up.
Trade in offer would be very nice, I hope they do it. I can see many people wanting to play Last of Us on PS4 even if they owned the PS3 version but only if they don't get double charged.
it will probably be the most "next-gen" game to come out on next-gen consoles, despite it initially being on ps3
Clearly you haven't played Second Son.
i haven't, but i'm not talking about what's more next gen on a technical level. I'm thinking like just how far ahead it is of other games
I'm for it if they update all assets of the game and not just slightly HD it up.
hope naughty dog isn't wasting their time or talent on a port , don't want to slow down their next games release date by 1 minute .
nd has 2 teams .one is already working on uncharted 4 , im sure that gives the other team time to do this . and im sure naughtydog can truly bring a post over without disappointment.
would hope the other team is working on the next great game like TLoU , and this is shipped off to a 3rd party port studio
I imagine they would break off a smaller team to quickly complete (relatively speaking) the port to PS4.
They could probably easily give it to port specialized studios
Yeah that's what I'm thinking they're doing.
You do realize they have multiple teams, right? The TLOU team has nothing at all to do with Uncharted and won't slow that games release at all. And a port like this would likely be handled by a very small portion of the team.
I think its more of a pro then a con because believe it or not, there are still many ppl who haven't played the game & if u read many of the reviews of TLOU when it came out, alot of reviewers also brought up the stunning graphics TLOU had for ps3 game even going as far as to say it looked better then most of the next gen titles being showed off at the time. I think the campaign is enough for another purchase but the multiplayer is well balanced & tactical & tough all in one. Warning if your not into tactical multiplayers that pretty much takes skills & patience then this multiplayer aint for u if your just the type that likes to run around like rambo, trust me youll be the 1st one dead lol. Cant wait, hopefully they have ps3 & ps4 players to play each other.
I dont see the cons If TombRider did it, The Last Of Us sure as hell should do it too, it deserves that treatment
I dont see any cons, make it happen!
This could have something to do with the Naughty Dog people leaving... The fact that they are pushing PS4 remakes of old games rather than pursuing new IP's on all fronts... I mean sure the gamer in me would be all happy and what not for TLOU on PS4... but, it's not a necessity.. I would rather take a brand new game that could potentially shake up the industry just like TLOU did.
Agree completely. I would like it so I don't have to turn on my ps3 anymore though. I won't get though unless it comes with all of the DLC for the game, or is less than $60.
A wise Geek would predict this was going to happen and wait to buy it on the PS4 so they don't buy the same game twice. I was not that Geek.
And wait over a year to play it? Given that some of the best critically rated games from the PS2 like Shadow of the colossus were released in HD on PS3 it'll have always been potentially on the cards but no true fan nor true 'geek' would ever want to wait.
Ever heard of patience? There are MANY geeks waiting to buy a next gen console because the prices are too high.
The only con that I can think of, is that it might not happen.
As i said somewhere else, TLOU on PS4 is going to be amazing and a must buy for all those people who didn't play it yet. Cons: another port.... well, i'd prefer a new project or so but i guess it's good anyway. It was something incredible on PS3, i can't imagine it on PS4!!
I hope whichever team ends up doing the port is able to implement some sort of Infected or Horde mode in the multiplayer. The single player and multiplayer are already awesome without it, but it would be such a great addition.
