It's Sad That the Best PS4 Game So Far is An Updated PS3 Game

The author wonders why an improved PS3 game is still, by far and away, the best title available among supposed "next-gen" competitors.

It's one of the best PS3 games though... So, that's not really sad, just expected.

GeofferyPeterson1116d ago

So sad that I'm crying tears of joy I'll be playing it on PS4 in less then 24 hours!!!

Winter47th1116d ago

It's not sad and the PS4's got a lot of great games, ports also count as GAMES in case you forgot that since they're the best ports on any console.

GiggMan1116d ago

I'm trying to figure out who it's sad for?

It's not sad for Sony or the people that are going to buy it. It's actually great for the million or so people who held on to the 360 waiting on MS to release a TLOU quality game and jumped ship to the PS4.

Everybody wins.

The poo poo is strong with this article.

The Last of Us Remastered is receiving higher review scores than any game currently on the PS4, Xbox One or WiiU. A game this amazing only comes around once in a while and deserves to be enjoyed by as many gamers as possible. Nothing sad about that.

dedicatedtogamers1116d ago

It's one of the best games of all time, according to some. Why is that a "sad" thing?

SilentNegotiator1116d ago

It's "sad" that a port of one of the best titles of the 7th gen is better than the games that came out in the mere first year of a new system?

The burns!

Good-Smurf1116d ago (Edited 1116d ago )

You're in for a treat!
And Left Behind is so worth it,one of the best DLC ever made!
Off Topic:Now I need Ni No Kuni on PS4! (I doubt they would port it on PS4 though,one of the most underrated games of 2013)

abstractel1116d ago (Edited 1116d ago )

Hmm, so the very solid Infamous Second Son, Watch Dogs and (in my opinion) Killzone Shadowfall don't count because one of the best games of last generation is getting a remastered release? We're only ~8-9 months since the release of the PS4, what do you expect?

Having said that, I do wish that Dying Light, Driveclub and The Crew didn't miss their "early 2014" dates as I do hunger for more next-gen games.

ChrisGTR11115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

Whats sad is the tlou is better than anything on Xbox one but they won't be able to play it :P

G20WLY1115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

It's sad that the best game on a console that's been out for a matter of months is a remaster of the best game of the past generation?! A game with well over 200 GOTY awards?!

'Opinion' is fine and all, but that one is just lame. :/

Would the author be happier with PS4 if the option to buy TLOU:R wasn't available to him? Is he a bit 'special'? lol

inveni01115d ago

TLoU is one of the best games of all time. If not THE. It'll be a long time before something trumps it. (When does the next ND game come out? :) )

ABizzel11115d ago

Just like Wind Waker HD was the best game on Wii U for a while, and just like Halo: MCC will be one of the best games on XBO.

A great game is a great game regardless of what platform it came from.

Dee_911115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

I remember when the ps3 came out and I mainly played ps2 games on it the entire first year.If anything is sad, its that current gen systems don't allow for backwards compatibility.

ShinMaster1115d ago (Edited 1115d ago )

Is the article implying that there are better games on other platforms?
Halo:MCC will be the best Xbox One game of 2014 as well and 2 of the games in the collection are at least 10 years old.

Just like Wind Waker HD, a game from 2 generations ago, and Rayman Legends, a multiplatform game, are the best games on Wii U right now.

But does it really matter that much? Not really.
Who is this sad for?

frezhblunts1115d ago

TLOU remaster is awesome and honestly there aren't many ps4 games but I believe infamous second son was great too. The line up doesnt seem huge but I am hoping for some great next gen games next year on my ps4

frezhblunts1115d ago

ok now just cause they are talking about ps4 doesnt mean wii u best game is wind waker. mario kart 8, dk tropical freeze and mario 3d world sold great and is probably their top games besides pikmin 3

Let me correct the title for the author.

" It's sad the best CURRENT GEN game so far is an updated PS3 game. "


But in reality, there's nothing sad at all about it at all. The game is was released so late into the PS3's cycle that many were predicting that it wouldn't sell, and that Sony should have saved it for the PS4. And they said the same thing for Beyond 2 souls,GTAV and GT6.

Not a single soul have a problem with rock star doing the same thing with GTAV, or Microsoft with the Halo collection. Talk about double standards, lol.

ASTAROTH1116d ago

It was the best game last gen and its by far better than anything available rigth now in both the PS4 and xbox one. But at least its on PS4 and it will be a heck of a ride...

GhostTurtle1116d ago

Couldn't have said it better.

Kingthrash3601116d ago now this is the new argument? I've seen this said too much in article titles. But isn't the best x1 game coming a remake of Xbox and 360 halos? Persona5 and ffx are the best on vita IMO. the best 3rd party games are also on last gen consoles.....
So what is really sad is bs like this is the best articles gaming "journalists" can muster for hits. Tlou is the best game ever made IMO and people who jumped from Wii/360 to ps4 can experience this bar setting game. I'm in for a do over myself

Sayai jin1116d ago

@K360 - I agree, but what does this article have to do with the Xbox.

Kingthrash3601116d ago (Edited 1116d ago )

Nothing...that's the point.
Its not OK to ignore "problems" when more than Sony are doing it....this year even. Its well well known fact that all do this...I mean psnow...vita ports..wiiu virtual console games..GTA ..halo MCC...they are all wanted things by gamers. If this "journalist" thinks tlou remake and its greatness is sad...then why ignore literally EVERYONE ELSE?

Gunstar751115d ago

Whilst I'm not saying that a remaster of TLOU is a bad thing (though I wasn't a fan) I wouldn't compare a remaster of a 12 month old game to a remaster of a series of games that span a ten year period.

Having seen the reviews, I don't know why anyone who owns this game would buy it again, unless the poop money?

But hey, live and let live. Whatever floors your boat and sh1t :0).

Sayai jin1115d ago

People on this site take this whole console war serious and personal. You guys are in the trenches for what?

The funny thing is if this game was on the Xbox One it would be the same case. Better yet its the best game on both consoles to date. PERIOD!

Qrphe1116d ago

And the best 3DS game for a while was OoT. The best of games usually are still the best of games even as rereleases.

MysticStrummer1116d ago

Typical N4G title shenanigans.

"The Last Of Us is still the best game available, even though it first launched well over a year ago. It's still the most accomplished title I've seen since it released, and we're including not one, but two new system launches in the time frame. Even though it often takes a while for new consoles to get rolling, isn't this just a little depressing? One could even make a solid point in saying that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is the second-best game on store shelves, even ahead of anything on the next-gen machines."

He's not saying it's the best title on PS4. He's saying it's the best next gen title period. Personally I don't think it's sad because the generation is still in it's infancy. If the game was being released later in the generation and was still the best, that would be sad.

wsoutlaw871116d ago

ya why would that be sad? its not like games are better just because they are made on next gen. And whats the difference? If they delayed tlou until ps4 launch would it have been less sad. This article doesnt make any sense.

truefan11116d ago (Edited 1116d ago )

More embarrassing than sad because the sony slogan is for the gamers, yeah ps3 gamers.

Before you mention Halo MCC, it is a 10 year anniversary of one of the best console mutiplayer games ever. They threw in all the other numbered Halos and extra content to increase the value. Compare that to the 10 month anniversary of tlou and it's just embarrassing. Also XB1 has other games to compliment Halo MCC like Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Ori and the Blind Forest, and Forza Horizon 2. Not to mention Phil Spencer hinting at more 2014 games, while sony is content with destiny. All in all I wish all you that already beat tlou less than 1 year ago have fun beating it again.

@kingtrash360 I have been here.

Kingthrash3601116d ago (Edited 1116d ago )

Lol there you've been absent lately. As usual you are incorrect.
Tlou has been out over a year.
Halo MCC is as great a addition to x1 as tlou is to ps4 and why not mention gta5? Its younger than tlou.
Tlou is already the highest rated game on any console this so far this year and is looking to be a contender for goty. Why not release it? It has a market for it with so many new ps4 owner who did not play it because they had a 360. Halo most every Xbox 1owner owns or played these games. Not many ps3 owners jumped ship this gen for x1 so the market is much smaller .
Lastly, the way you put it you act as if Sony has no other games when it has more announced and more currently available to play...and before you say indie look at your x1 list and you shall find indies in there.
You baffle me every time you comment. I wonder if its just for attention.
