The cat is out of the bag :D
morganfell  +   671d ago
And I think it is likely the cat got out because Sony intentionally opened the door and let the cat out. I have been through the game twice already and will rebuy.

And if Gaf is anything to go by, the thread over there that is blowing up at the moment readily demonstrates most previoius owners are like me and willing to double dip. For many first comers it is a must buy and a system seller for the rest.

@morganfell: not sure about that. Sony just seems full of holes. Remember when they did pretty much the same with the new video of watch dogs and the release date about a week before they were actually announced?
ZodTheRipper  +   671d ago
Strange ...even though I played through it 3,5 times (and then sold my PS3) I am still excited about it :D
In my opinion it's still the best game ever made and thanks to it's gameplay it's fun to play through even multiple times. Hopefully the DLC is included as I missed all of them.

i know im excited i didnt have a ps3 when the last of us came out so playing it on the ps4 is going to feel like a totally new game to me.
morganfell  +   671d ago
Abriael, I do remember. And I think more of these actions are intentional than people realize.

It is similar in nature to the instances of some of these "unknown insiders". Not the ones like Thuway whom we know by name, but others. I have pondered the genius nature of having such a person actually working for a company. They leak an idea, people respond positively, the company goes ahead with the idea. People react negatively? Well, its just an insider that was wrong. Free market research with no impact or reflection on the company for choosing a poor direction from which they are now free to back away without the consequence of flip flopping.

As regards these web mistakes and mis-postings, it is rather obvious that such matters are intentional, very deliberate actions. This isn't Timmy the web administrator who isn't aware of the impact of TLOU on the PS4 so he throws it up on the site. "Oh, I thought everyone knew and this was already out."

Although much has been speculated regarding a new gen version of TLOU, other than ND stating the engine would be used on the PS4 for upcoming titles and their models and artwork had to be downscaled for the PS3, there hasn't been a great deal of true, tangible evidence of a PS4 version. It isn't like Morpheus where you could place a solid bet without fear of losing. If you look at the speculation on which TLOU PS4 articles have thus far been based it is less concrete than the image of toast Jesus. Everyone can say they were sure it was going to happen but when you ask them for real evidence that TLOU was coming to the PS4, proof becomes somewhat anorexic. Comments such as those by Eric (Monacelli) were taken out of context and often omit his follow on remark in the same PS Blog post on which many have founded their beliefs.

I mention the above because what we have is, once you remove all the unfounded speculation, a shot out of left field. So it isn't something that seemed so possible, so known that a accidental posting was made by a web administrator.

In addition, the approval process for such adjustments/additions to the site and store related items, particularly since the PS3 security issues, is more extensive and layered than most realize.

Sony just generated a ton of interest in the PS4 without having to commit to a release date. Its quite a smart move actually. If they need to delay the project they can. In light of the leak I would say it is a sure thing but one which Sony can release at will.

gatormatt80  +   671d ago

If the PS3 version was censored in your country then more than likely so will the PS4 version. That's not a failure of the game though, that's a failure of your country's government. I would import if I were you. It would be worth it.

LordMaim  +   671d ago
@UltraNova: Is it really a remaster though? I doubt they had to go back to the drawing board only a year after the release of the game. Theoretically they could have been working on both versions simultaneously and just used lower poly models / smaller textures for the PS3 version.
UltraNova  +   671d ago

Whether they've been working simultaneously or not for both next and old gen has nothing to do with re-releasing a prettier version of a year old game with a full price.

Remastering the game adding the DLC should come at 40 dollars maximum.

Tomb raider was 45 if I remember correctly and still felt like a ripoff cause actually it was.

The only case where I consider this to be ok is for the 360 guys who jumped ship to Sony and its their chance to experience what a truly awesome exclusive feels like.

If it turns out to be 60 I will be disappointed but only because I'm compelled to buy it again and play it for the 3rd time with better graphics.

Ultranova, I thought that Tomb Raider "definitive edition" was full price at 60.

And I know for sure that I remember nearly EVERYONE complaining about it.

Not sure why this game would get a pass for doing the same thing, except because well, you know... It's Sony, so.... All hail.
Sevir  +   671d ago
What this tells me is that Uncharted for PS4 is a 2014 release! If this is coming to PS4 this year then this is a trial run to see how well the PS4 handles this game... I'm expecting the Tomb Raider definitive edition treatment with ND's Own industry setting standard, which will be a precursor for a blown from the ground up next gen NaughtyDog game.

Can't wait!

This whole remastering thing is getting out of hand, but TLOU? Count me in! Not just a great single player, but it's THE multiplayer I miss the most since I sold the game (along with Socom Confrontation, but that was because of the friends, the game itself wasn't that good).
UltraNova  +   670d ago

To clarify on my mistake. I live in the EU where the game (Tomb Raider DE)costs 45 euros, thats 60 in dollars. New games here where I live cost between 60-70 euros!

And NO 60 dollars which equates 60 in euros (EU import laws and shit inflate prices like crazy) is not acceptable for an old game by no means.

I will buy it but pre-owned. Its a must have for the ps4 I just need to see what ND did with that engine on the ps4 period .Plus I haven't played any of the DLC.

My 2 cents.

Freaking psyched lol Even though I played through it countless of times I'm psyched on what new things they'll improve on. I'm happy simply because of the multiplayer. Hopefully more people take notice of it because it's really good.

Yeh the multiplayer is great, very tense and rewarding! Could do with some more game modes and maps but still a fun and unique experience.

I wonder how much effort it takes to port a game built for PS3 to PS4 with the different architectures? I guess the more powerful hardware helps to reduce the amount of optimization required. Will be interesting to see what, if any, content, fps and graphic additions are made.

colonel179  +   671d ago
I wonder two things:

1) How much of an improvement will it be? Tomb Raider was a nice improvement, but nothing actually impressive at all. Hopefully there's more to it than just 1080p/60fps and DLC included.

2) Who was in charge of the remaster? Was it Naughty Dog or was some other developer?

We'll be seeing those questions answered soon I would say. Perhaps Naughty Dog will address these concerns on the Playstation Blog.

GarrusVakarian  +   671d ago
I actually thought Tomb Raider was pretty impressive on PS4. The graphics were really good at times.

On topic, i don't think we will see much difference apart from it being 1080p 60fps, maybe with some small extras. Frankly, that would be plenty difference for me. In my opinion, despite it being a PS3 game, TLOU would be the best game out on any next gen console if it released on PS4.

Will definitely double dip. I advise anyone who has yet to play this masterpiece to pick it up for PS4 when you get the chance.

Beyond visuals it would be awesome if the enemies used a more advanced AI. If they could somehow make the enemies change up their patrols on every playthrough it would make for a very interesting time. I may be asking for too much but maybe they did ramp up more than just the visuals bringing it over to the PS4.
Salooh  +   671d ago
I don't want them to waste their time on the last of us. Just want a fast port. Let them shock us with graphics in their new games. Don't ruin the wow factor over something you already played :D.

I'm buying it for the multiplayer though. That's what i want lol ...
DrJones  +   671d ago
If your not impressed by the Tomb Raider remake at all, then you are in for a disappointment this gen. The definitive edition was a huge overhaul from the original console versions. Maybe not according to your atandards, but if that's the case, your standards are too high. Not too say that remakes can't be better than the Tomb Raider Definitive edition, just don't take it for granted.

I personally am going to wait for a ps+ sale. That will give me a break and ill able to appreciate it again in a few months.

Can't wait to buy it day one to support ND again. this is excellent news for those who didn't have a ps3, so now they can pick up the best version with all the DLC

I watched a lot of interviews and ND always said not enough memory to get the AI to where they wanted it to be, i hope they fix that now with PS4's much bigger memory size

to those who have not played it and have a PS4 please do yourself a favor, give yourself this game as a gift and enjoy it. Its one of those games everyone must experience

25 years of playing games and this game is on my personal #1

Christopher  +   671d ago
Pointless at this time, IMHO. We need more exclusive and new content, not more ports.

Just hope the new games being announced for PS3/360 release later this year make their way to PS4/XBO as well. We need to make sure all platforms are getting the best support and not just ports from games put out less than a year ago and already played by the majority of people who would play them in the first place.

I agree, but unfortunately the internet in general does not.

People have been asking for it over and over and flat out saying they would buy it again.

$ for devs and a often requested game for fans is a win, win. Just hope it doesn't slow down other projects making this one happen.
DevilishSix  +   671d ago
Shouldn't delay sequel if that is what ND plans on doing. Often times another developer works the remastered or port versions. Like the great job Bluepoint Games did with the GOW 1 & 2 collection, the Metal Gear Collection, and the Titanfall 360 port.
ND likely has higher def assets to the game originally and scaled it down to the hardware or at least many developers do it that way.
Anyways I will support this great game and ND by getting a PS4 version.

I played an beat it once on my PS3. I had started a second playthrough but never got the DLC. If this is true then I will gladly buy it again for the PS4. It is a game that is well worth the money and something every gamer should try.
Kurisu  +   671d ago
The Last of Us is an amazing game, enjoyed my play through on PS3. This is great for people who haven't played it, but I'm not buying this again at full price when I still have a perfectly good PS3 copy. (I say that but when I see the graphics I'll probably be like "do want!")
WitWolfy  +   671d ago
Wonder when we can expect a release date?
Jeff257  +   671d ago
Probably E3 week. They might announce it at the conference and either say you can buy it right now on PSN or tomorrow in stores. I hope it actually comes out sooner but with the push they have behind Watch Dogs with Ubisoft I can't imagine it coming out before that.
ifistbrowni  +   671d ago
My guess would be shortly after E3. The Last of Us was launched in early June last year. Makes sense it would launch again in June.

Your trophies for TLOU sync to your PS4, so it doesn't matter which one you played, therefore your reasoning is false.
DevilishSix  +   671d ago
PS4 trohies are seperate from PS3 trophies, so for instance you can have two sets of trophies for Tomb Raider. They can double dip your games and the gamer can double dip the trophies.

Anyone who hasn't played it already should be excited, and definitely get this. It really is a stunning game, my favourite of last generation.


I'm amazed at the willingness to ditch this sort of money on a game we've already played and paid for within the last 10 months. The core fan base is getting royally screwed over, needs to be cheaper.

That's the thing, if you have already played it, already own it...then it's up to you if you think the $60 price tag is justified for a double dip. Personally, i would gladly pay £40 again, but for someone who has already played it and doesn't want to spend full retail again.....just wait for it to drop, no one is forcing you to pay full retail.

Besides, if it comes with all the MP DLC and the 'Left Behind' DLC, i see no reason why $60/£40 isn't acceptable.

ChickeyCantor  +   670d ago
Your reasoning doesn't add up. When a game is being re-released less resources are put into it. So therefor the price can't be justified at full.

But if you're saying it's worth the price for it's excellence then that's a different story.
#13.1.3 (Edited 670d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(1) | Report
GarrusVakarian  +   670d ago

I disagree with you on that, i don't think the price of this port is justified by how much work the devs put it, but how much game you are getting.

Look at when the game first released last year, you got just the game with SP and MP for $60. Now you are getting that same game, with upgraded visuals, the entire contents of the season pass worth $30 alone and some little extras for the same price people paid last year for the vanilla version.

Imo, for people who have yet to play it, i think that's a fair deal, but for people who have already played it but want to get it again, they may not see it as a fair deal....thank goodness no one is being forced to buy this and can always wait for a price drop.

I'm sorry, but this full price stuff for "remastered" games from last generation needs to stop. I really want this, but paying 60 dollars for it again? Come on I already got the limited edition version and DLC, why do you need my whole wallet?

The graphical leap from last gen to current isn't even as massive as say PS2 to PS3 (I mean that alone was SD to HD), yet those HD collections came with normally 3 or more games and only cost 40 bucks.....

True but not for this game. It's a must play for all people and a lot of ps4 players didn't experience it. It need to be done. And the fans will play it too because they love it. It's better then most of what released since launch.

Thats fine, but what about those of us that did play it? What ever happened to the upgrade your game for 10 dollars idea? It only lasts to sell you the console, then it ends?

Seriously if I bought this again, that'd be over 200 bucks into one game. Not going to happen, I'll wait for bargain bin or PS Plus to have it.
