While The Last of Us Remastered is generally lauded for it's masterful storytelling and near perfection of a genre, there are a few noteworthy points common in each opinion.
With 50% of PS4 owners coming from Xbox 360 how is the Remastered of one of the best games last gen not necessary? And with $30 worth of DLC that I didn't play on PS3, it is very worth getting on top of the technical improvements it has for $50.
It's definitely a valuable pick up for a lot of people. I think the common consensus was that there isn't a lot of distance between the original and remaster. So while people didn't feel it was a crucial release, it's still worthy and very well put together.
TLOU is hype I can believe in. I can hardly wait til tomorrow to play through it all again.
Man you guys kill me with that 50% did not own a ps3 crap, sony is just spewing numbers to justify remasters and ports. Only 7 million out of 83 million bought the tlou on ps3, which is only 8%. Now all of a sudden a greater % of people are supposed to buy it for ps4? That doesn't make any sense to me. The main people that buy tlour will be from that 7 million that bought it for ps3, not from the made up 50% that didn't own a ps3. The reason tlour is coming out now is because they wanted to maximize ps3 sales before offering a double dipping opportunity with ps4.
Sony is making up numbers you say?
Maybe you're just spewing numbers to drag down one of the best games ever made because it's only available on a system you don't like.
Considering all of the remasters already out as well as the ones on the way, what exactly is wrong with a remaster? The PS4 version is objectively superior to the PS3 version in every technical aspect by a fairly wide margin, the 60 FPS only being one part of the picture. Nothing wrong with wanting to maximize sales of the game and maximize potential sales of the eventual Last of Us 2, which will be coming out on PS4 some time down the road. I swear, some people get so angry about what other people decide to buy. When it comes to something as silly as this, why get mad?
Your very biased towards anything Sony does. I see in the near future, you being in every Master Chief articles, and boasting that it's the greatest thing ever created. Many PS4 owners came from the 360. I highly doubt that they will be willing to spend 250$ to buy a ps3 to play this game, so it gives those select few the opportunity to play this amazing game.
For once I agree with you dedicated..... Looking forward to picking up GTA5 again, and Halo collection.....nothing wrong with having great games look even better....
Dude, just quit already. I know it hurts.Those numbers will also be from Xbox owners who are making the jump to ps4. Yes the game is that good.
Then die already! That'll just mean 1 less person person telling me why I shouldn't buy a PS4 version of a game I didn't experience on the PS3. Your words are falling on deaf ears for those just like me who will buy it on their PS4.
@dedicatedtogamers. This is not a jab. You asked what is wrong with remasters. IMHO, I believe they are being used to supplement a lack of new, top tier titles for the ps4. Yes, they are great games, mostly, but i believe that since most of the big named games were pushed to late 2014 and beyond, the library needed something to keep gamers happy. In comes remasters and indie titles. Games that can be ported quickly while gamers are waiting for the next big Sony games, announced and unannounced. I buy remasters some of the time, but i chose to pass on TLOU. Great game, but i didn't play online much and the story was just as good on ps3. Nothing against those who get it though.
100% agreed. It's just PS4 Sony fanboys talking out the arse with excuses for this resolution/fps "remaster".
Sure Sony are terrible for remastering last years best game. Tomb Raider Metro Redux Halo Collection - guess MS are just as bad?! GTA V Other games being released for the millionth time. Minecraft Walking Dead season 1 Also on the way. Wolf Among Us Walking Dead season 2
So did every xbox owner buy halo? No... So you post is pointless!

Yeah just like M$ is doing with the Halo remastered
You speak the truth, which is why they hate you.
dat truefan salty tears, anyway, Twinfinite is just a bunch of dumbass anyway, 99% of their articles are retarded and wack.
man your delusional im one of the main ones who didn't own a ps3 (I didn't own a ps2 for that matter) all xbox here. I got sick of microsoft and decided to try to change things up and give sony a go so far im extremly impressed so no it's not made up.
You are using Sony's PR numbers. You think early adopters are half of which never owned a PS3? If Microsoft said half the owners of Xbox One never owned a 360, would you believe it? That is something Yoshida put out right before Last Of Us was announced for PS4. Come on, it is a cash grab.
It's necessary for those who didn't own a ps3 last gen, same goes for those that did not own an xbox and any of the Halo series with regards halo collection
It was necessary to me and I had it on PS3. It was a game I was playing a lot before the PS4 dropped. But since having the PS4 I no longer played it. I'M BACK BABY. Multiplayer HERE I COME.
I finished it on PS3 and have it on order for PS4, going to try Platinum this time around. I was not saying that it was not necessary if you have already bought it!
So how can the port be unnecessary if 60FPS is a "massive improvement"?
It's unnecessary for guys like truefan up there who won't be getting a PS4 anyway.
I am not sure why a port wasn't necessary? I mean it could have not been done on PS3. Also, if you don't care for a upgraded port DO NOT BUY IT. I beat Tomb Raider and The Last of Us on last gen systems, but I bought both on next gen as I replay those games and now they look and play better. If you don't like it don't buy it simple as that. I do not care for sports games, but I do think they should make them as there is a group that enjoys those games.
Movies remastered on Blu-ray aren't "necessary" either if they were once on VHS tape as well then, right?
Had a ps3 but mainly gamed on my 360. However I did redbox TLOU and played through it. Amazing experience. Will definitely pick up tomorrow. Looking forward to playing through it again at 60fps, graphics upgrade and getting trophies. It's one of the best games ever made which came out and the end of a consoles life cycle, OF COURSE they should re introduce it (if they can) as a game for the next generation of consoles. It's a game any ps (new or old) owner should try.
Never got around to playing this, stoked I waited.
This article wasn't necessary! What is necessary is that everyone gets to play this game at least once in their lifetime become it's a once in a lifetime type of game! A real authentic masterpiece, not just hype, plenty of awards and reviews to back it up! Can't wait to download tonight and start my journey again!
I wont be buying this on my PS4 only because the PS3 version that I have holds up really well. One of my favourite games ive ever played but the upgrade for me isnt worth it. To those who havnt played it, they are going to have an amazing time with the remastered edition. ENJOY!
