A "huge proportion" of PlayStation 4 owners have never played The Last of Us, Sony has said after sifting through data on PlayStation Network.
I feel sorry for them. Well now is their chance. Everyone should play it
Considering alot of PS4 owners use to be 360 owners, this is the truth. http://gaminrealm.com/2014/...
TLoU remaster is gonna be a masterpiece remaster.
I was a 360 owner. But I also owned the PS3. Glad I didnt beat the game. I played for a couple hours but then became a Dota addict. Glad I didn't because I AM going to beat this game on the PS4.
"TLoU remaster is gonna be a masterpiece remaster." Well, a remaster of a game considered a masterpiece by many. Not necessarily a masterpiece remaster. Well most likely not.
I'm in that boat and have preordered the game. My fingers were crossed ever since switching I'd get a chance so I am glad it's finally happening.
I was a little jealous of all the new players who will experience this game for the first time since I played and completed this game on PS3. But then I thought... None of us has experienced the game on PS4, and in 1080p and consistent 60 fps. This how we were meant to experience it. And since I never bought Left behind or played the multiplayer. I can't wait to get back into the world of TLOU. It's gonna be incredible even if I'm playing through the story for the second time around, I'll be experiencing it in an all new way to me. And to that extent, it's like playing through the game for the first time.
"The Last of Us: The Remasterpiece"
why feel sorry when we are playing the definitive version of the game and not buying it twice lmao
I have THREE mates who we're die hard 360 owners, who would never dream of touching the PS3 but have all bought a PlayStation 4. They have all preordered The Last of Us Remastered - my God are they in for a treat!
@Septic: Why do you try so hard to downplay this game? It's almost as if you're afraid of something.
"Well, a remaster of a game considered a masterpiece by many. Not necessarily a masterpiece remaster. Well most likely not." i feel the hurt comment! a masterpiece that has been remastered in full 1080p glory and 60fps is definitely a masterpiece+ to many.
Just speculated this in a different article: "Didn't Sony announce a ~30-40% new user (transfer from 360/pc) rate? So.. the new 9 million sold rate at 30% is 3 million new players.... Am I wrong? I'm on vacation and have been out... But that means 3 million new players.... Edit, I also remember a Microsoft fanboy saying that only 7 to 11 million ps3 copies were sold... so... So if there were ~80 million ps3's out there then doesn't that also mean around (a generous) ~65 million Sony users haven't played it? "
"TLoU remaster is gonna be a masterpiece remaster" Kind of like a *Criterion Collection release. *Criterion is a Company that remasters movies to the Highest quality of video and sound making it the definitive version to own. Not to be confused with Criterion, the game developer that just refuses to release a new Burnout for the new consoles....or at least a Burnout Collection!!!
i feel jealous of them actually, they have the chance to play it for the first time with improved graphics. who would have thought one day there could be a better version of that masterpiece?
I was thinking exactly the same
Well I've beaten the game 3 times on PS3. But going into the Remaster will be a first on PS4, a first at 60fps and a first at 1080p. It will also be a first playing grounded so... yeah it'll a kinda a first for me too. lol
'I feel sorry for them' I don't, they get to play one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time in 1080p at 60fps for the first time, I would otherwise be jealous.
Yeah i know tons of people who didn't play it but they did enjoy the story by watching walkthroughs on youtube.
You're trying too hard.
You shouldn't feel sorry for us. I'm going to experience the game for the first time at 1080P 60FPS with all the DLC included for a low price of 40€. So you see missing out on the PS3 version isn't such a bad thing.
I've played it. I'll be playing it again on ps4.
No reason to feel sorry. I have a PS3 and a PS4 havent played it yet. It came out when I wanted to secure my PS4 first then I heard rumors it may get remastered so I waited and looks like a good wait. Will get higher quality version + all dlc content for $49.99, I feel sorry for anyone who wont play through it on their first time with the definitive version.
I feel sorry for them too, it was from a time when resolution didn't matter, just great games.
And great games still matter today which is why im buying the last of us on the PS4 which will be even better due to the more advanced hardware. Unless your suggesting that the last of us will be worse on the PS4 due to its increased resolution and framerate.
No, its that people think it will be any better.
I like complex games like King of Dragon Pass, Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis and other grand strategy games. I have not found a reason to get interested about simple story driven game like TLoU. What makes TLoU so good I should buy PS and play it?
Lol, even 'Huge proportion' of PS3 owners haven't played The Last of Us if we consider that sales are north of 6m and PS3 sold north of 80m.
never played played it. preordered.
When it came out I was busy playing FFXIV:ARR so I put it off, intending to pick it up when it dropped in price, but the hype died down, and Dark Souls 2 came out, which took a ton of my time. When ND announced the remastered version, it was the last straw though- I'll be picking it up day 1.... whenever that is.
I am one of them. I didn't own a PS3, so as a new PS owner with a PS4 this will be my chance. Already have the game on preorder, so I will definitely be giving it a go.
I always thought this would happen. So I've stayed away from everything TLOU related. I know nothing about it other than people say it's rather good. I've also never played a single God of War game. My next prediction is that they'll all get remastered for the PS4. Then i'll finally play it.
yep, or I will play them on Playstation Now eventually.
God of War(s) are pretty much confirmed to be up and running on PS Now streaming right? thats what I suggest to you.... Ascension is a prequel to GoW 1 btw so maybe go in that order maybe.
well some of the new ps4 owners could be old xbox or nintendo fans, so yeah.
I haven't played it and I am very excited to buy it and play it on the PS4. I had a ps3 but by the time Last of Us came out I really wasn't a game buying dude knowing that next gen was around the corner and I was going to sell the ps3 while it still had value.
You skipped TLOU because you weren't a game-buying dude?
Correct, I skipped it, because outside of NHL hockey, I wasn't interested in playing ps3 tech with ps4 around the corner and my PC games. I've heard it is an amazing game, so I'm very happy at the chance to play it in a few weeks.
I'm part of the portion that has played it, but will still buy this day 1 again on Ps4 remastered
same here :) cant wait to play this again
There are in for a treatment, my personal favorite game of Last Generation together with original Uncharted and Uncharted 2. Pre ordered my PS4 copy and look forward to once again playing superb single player with excellent online.
I never played the first uncharted. Will I be let down since I enjoyed the 2nd and third?
If you enjoyed those I don't see why you shouldn't enjoy the 1st one.
The first one was freaking amazing dude. Go get it! I'm actually replaying it myself.
How many PlayStation owners are kids who just want to play COD online.There not interested in survival horror or a decent story.
I bought and still have the PS3 disc but life threw up a pretty major family crisis and I never got to play it ( and still can't bring myself to try it in my PS3) but that's going to change with my PS4 :)
I finished it 3 times on PS3..Will do the same when the Remastered Edition comes out!!
I said a couple days ago that i felt they were mainly remastering it because it came out near the end of the Ps3 cycle and lots of people missed out. Glad to see i'm in some way correct! i finished the game countless times and plat'ed it too. But i haven't purchased any DLC.. So i'm looking forward to TLOU on PS4 as much as the next guy.
I have a PS3 and haven't played this game.
Then why show a spoiler trailer at e3!? That drove me nuts as I still havent finished it on ps3 myself
I borrowed my mates ps3 and played through it once and I will most defiantly be buying it on Ps4, can't wait!!!!
I haven't played it so it looks like I get to enjoy the game in its definitive edition. Too bad for the ps3 owners.
Probably because they migrated from an Xbox.
Nope the majority of PS4 owners are previous owners of PS3s. Only 30% were Xbox 360 owners.
It would be interesting to see how many PS3 owners are now only Xbox One owners.
Played through it twice, and finished Left Behind. Was going to do more playthroughs but I'm waiting for this.. Day 1.
I can't wait to play it again at 60fps. They should remake all the ps3 greatest hits and bundle it on the console. Games like God of War 3, MGS4, Uncharted series all those remade for the new PS owners.
its true, the game did not sell that much on ps3, plus with new xbox fans, theres a whole new bunch of people who did not play
@Gemmol "its true, the game did not sell that much on ps3" I have to disagree with you there, unless your definition of "not a lot" is more than 6 million. With a little more than 8 million PS4s sold, (an estimate based on monthly sales) it's fair to assume that 30% of these sales were to people who have never owned a PS3. That figure comes to 2.4 million. A logical person would have no choice but to assume that at least 1 million of these people who are new to Playstation will buy TLOU for PS4. Toss in another million copies to people who want to play it again and throw in another 250,000 to 500,000 new PS4s sold over the next 3 to 4 months and Sony will have another hit on their hands. Keep in mind these are all estimates, but even at the lowest estimates, Sony can expect at least 1.5 million copies of this game to be sold over the next 3 to 6 months. Let the disagrees roll in.
I'm pretty sure it being a hit is a given. 1.5 million is a pretty good estimate. It's been in the top selling for Amazon for a couple months now.
theres a lot of games that sell 6 million, just saying they can do better, I want them to do better, I am not talking about breaking even or anything, I want the games to be well received like mario kart or grand theft, these sell over 10 million, look at Gamecube sold over 20 million consoles, and mario kart for it sold over 10 million, that is over 50 percent adoption rate......very few reach 10 million and higher, Gran Turismo for the ps2 was their first game to sell over 10 million,so hopefully sony fans do better and support sony instead of supporting 3rd parties more
Glad I did not play it yet, I´m deff buying it on the PS4!
I'm one of them, sold my PS3 some time ago
i have a PS3 and didnt get it . i have a PS4 and still wont get it . because different people have different tastes in the other hand i cant wait for LBP3 , Rime , and maybe if i saw more bloodborne . the last of us is the best game in its genre and in providing cinematic experience glad that people can enjoy a wide variety of experiences for me i like fantasy innocent out of this world games or classic formula games like Sonic and ratchet , ICo .
i like a few games you listed. i also like tlou, try it out.
wow i forgot sony could look at trophies to see who has played TLOU
yea, trophies and achievements can give devs/publishers/sony and ms lots of vital information. im pretty sure last gen will show us that if you release a shitty but easy to plat game then people will play the game >.<
no shit sherlock. sony stating the obvious again. i can look at vgchartz and see it sold less than 5 million. ps4 sold 9 million. obviously not everyone who bought tlou bought a ps4. i presume a max of 1 in 7 of ps4 owners have played the game.
Glad to be amongst those who didn't finish it in the hopes of a definitive PS4 version.
