The Last of Us: Video Comparison - PS4 vs. PS3

The Last of Us in a video comparison between the PS4 and PS4 version of the game.

The story is too old to be commented.

The Last of Us already looked so good on the PS3, it looks like the only differences between the two versions will be resolution and framerate.

And slightly better draw distance and shadow quality.

But that's about it.

I'm still getting it though because I never played the game before and its a good remaster especially with the massively improved framerate.

I agree it definitely isn't a remaster in the same way Halo 2 anniversary is. I was so sick of the last generation when this game came out so I skipped it, but I'm gonna head to the store now and pick this up and play it for the first time in its best form. About how long is this game?

MasterCornholio1272d ago


That's because Halo 2 anniversary edition is a remake of the Xbox version of the game for the Xbox 360. No idea why you called Halo 2 a remaster.

I'm amazed and perplexed at how many Sony guys here haven't played this game. What were you all doing a year ago when the hype train was going full speed?

SoapShoes1272d ago (Edited 1272d ago )

I notice a good difference. Mostly it's really cleaned up, much less jaggies. Better lighting. Better draw distance. Better shadows. Better textures. It's not a huge jump but it is the same difference as BF4 PS3 and BF4 PS4.

I disagree with you there m8 the last gen BF4 had elements off the game completely missing in the multiplayer maps from textures not drawn in to screens on walls in shanghai with out the animations.

This game doesn't miss anything from the PS3 it just looks a lot prettier hence an HD remaster but for some reason every time that gets mentioned people get slammed here like its a bad thing. The only bad thing about it is its being to far to early as with most off the masterchief collection.

For what has been done it looks fantastic i just wish it was like ICO and we had them on the shelve that bit longer so we get to take in these classic's for a while before having to dip back in again.

But then again its a choice. But when that choice comes knocking again will be be so keen to pay up again.

Having played it for several hours last night, I can say the differences are huge. None of the vids or pics do the final result justice in any way.

The jump to (almost) locked 1080/60p improves the whole experience to the point that there is no way I'll ever play the original again. And this is from a guy who thought the original was essentially "the perfect game".

It just feels like this is the way the game should always have been. And kudos to ND for leaving the gameplay and core mechanics unchanged. They could have tweaked things like AI and pathfinding but so glad they didn't.

Ignore the haters that go on about the "poor shadows" and that it "looks almost the same". They have either never played it, or just jelly.

It's a perfect score for me. The best game of last gen, has now become the best game of this gen (so far) ;-)

I downloaded and watched these videos earlier today. They are the best I've seen yet on the net. These videos are what sold me on running out and picking it up again. The game looks, and more importantly, runs, much better than the original. I'm getting ready to rip the wrapper off it right now.

See you on the other side!

Derekvinyard131272d ago

Another video? Dam I've seen at least 10 videos pop up all doing the same thing

Peloun1272d ago

Another one? Can we stop spamming tlou news now please?

thelaughingwiseman1272d ago (Edited 1272d ago )

There wasn't a mind boggling difference. It's just touched up. Perfect for people who didn't own it on the ps3 and people who really loved the game. Not worth the purchase for updated graphics, for me at least

MrSec841272d ago

Looks night and day better too me, I mean that improved detail isn't just the result of improved resolution or frame rate.
The textures have been massively improved, it looks like geometry has taken a decent jump too.

The improvements to shadows, the water effects have taken a big leap too, not forgetting AA & AF.

Seriously this is the best looking 8th gen console game too date, very proud of Naughty Dog for working their magic here.

1nsomniac1272d ago

Oh god, stay back people the force is strong with this one!

SoapShoes1272d ago

What's wrong with his assessment? It has better graphics than Tomb Raider. Better graphics than anything I can think of really. The only thing that looks better might be inFAMOUS: Second Son but it looks better than 99% of cross gen titles.

Funantic11272d ago

Exaggeration to the fullest

purp13m0nk3y1272d ago

I agree that Naughty Dog have done a stellar job. But let's not get too carried away.

For one, the geometry is basically unchanged (environmental/objects) the main character models are improved but from what I could tell from my brief play with photo mode, NPC and enemy models (geometry wise) seem unchanged.

The rest of your comments are reasonable praise, but AA and AF filtering are still very basic. The jump to 1080p has helped IQ more than any advanced filtering.

AA is still just simple FXAA, disappointingly. Having even 2xMSAA would have made a world of difference.

Still. As per my previous comment. The remaster is gorgeous, and plays just as sublimely as the original. GOTY for me so far.

The best, just got better.
