Yeah but "The Last Of Us", was really good and this give new PlayStation owners a change to experience it :)

Stop making cross platform games never mind, these publishers need to commit to the new consoles already! only BF4 did it right so far where buying it on the new consoles actually was worth it, even with its issues

MazzingerZ1459d ago

This is different, was a fully PS3 focused game but thanks to ND engine is PS4-ready and the port-friendly PS4 architecture, this was possible without much effort, many on PS4 have yet to play the game so they benefit from it, this doesn't hurt anybody, we talk about a great game.

@Mazz: Yo i wasn't even talking about Playstation, i was talking about third party devs releasing games on both generations of consoles, they need to commit to these new machines already

Easier said than done...160 million consoles to 12 million. Hmmm? Maybe they just arent quite ready yet.

Besides, whats wrong with enticing former 360 owners to buy a ps4 to experience last years GotY? Yes, we all want new next gen games. Bioware said they are focusing on next gen first with Dragon Age. Sledgehammer said the same, and Watch Dogs looks pretty good.

Remember, companies have been doing this for years when making games for PC. Some ports dont take advantage and some do. But companies need the best chance to make money and Sony and MS our doing their best to sell consoles.

In the meantime, I have plenty to play on my PS4 right now w/ FF14, Watch Dogs and ESO is coming. Not to mention another action rpg next month.

Everyone i am not even talking about the Last of Us or Playstation, jeez i just think these cross platform games aren't really next gen as they are developing them with old hardware in mind is all

Parapraxis1459d ago (Edited 1459d ago )

" they need to commit to these new machines already"

Not when they have huge user bases on previous gen hardware.

A year or year and a half with cross-gen game development is good for gamers who haven't yet got new machines, and developers who can sell games to a much larger audience.

Exactly. Millions upon millions more people have PS3s than PS4s. Why ignore that market just because PS4 is out? Why not make money off of both?

MazzingerZ1458d ago (Edited 1458d ago )

My bad, got tricked by those ads below the article's title, saw Ellie's face and thought was about The Last of Us...posting from a phone isn't smooth. I apologize UnbiasedOpinions

Agree with you, the sooner the stop porting to last gen the faster we will get into the new gen but the success of both PS3 and X360 is hard to ignore for publishers, it might take a couple of years before we are there, last FIFA was on PS2 was released last year so I think many franchises might continue doing this longer than expected, exclusives are key to force other publishers to deliver quality games which are only achieved if you focus in one platform

If they did that then there would be no more CODs.

Should I buy The Last Of Us for $25 or just wait for the PS4 release. I never played it before?

LKHGFDSA1459d ago

it's two months away, i'd wait.
When I played it on PS3 I couldn't help but notice jaggies, slowdowns, low res textures, etc.

randomass1711459d ago

For $25 the PS3 might be the better value, but if you really want to play the game with the better visuals and have all the DLC included then PS4. It depends on what you value most in your purchase. Hope that helps. :)

Dustinf111459d ago

Id say support naughty dog and get the ps4 copy. I have a feeling it will be well worth it and a true 8th gen game. Its the 60fps that does it.

randomass1711458d ago

I get what you're saying, but I already bought the original so I've already supported Naughty Dog and I will support them again with Uncharted 4 and with their big project after that. Even Naughty Dog said that TLOU remastered is not a big project for them.

Thehyph1459d ago

You'll definitely want at least the $15 Left Behind DLC.

That DLC is a necessary companion after completion of the game.

It's a hard choice. You could be playing it asap, but you only stand to profit by waiting. (Even if you don't get it on ps4, the game will be reduced even further on ps3 by then)

Phoenix761459d ago

If you have Ps+ then I personally would wait till a month after it's released and you may end up with a free copy of TLOU for ps3. That's what happened with Tomb Raider.

memots1459d ago

Ps4 dude. I am currently playing it on ps3 and wish it was on ps4

the more the merrier, but I won't get a next gen console until there's something new on it.
