NowGamer: "Just how much difference is there between the PS3 and PS4 versions of The Last of Us and Is The Last Of Us Remastered really worth your money?"
Arguably one of the greatest games of all time at 1080p/60fps. Yes!
Absolutely YES! Why are journalist forgetting that there are more gamers who HAVE NOT played The Last of Us, than those who have?
Exactly, there are a lot of people who didn't buy the game first time around picking it up this time. And some of those people are gamin veterans who know full well the biggest games at the end of a gen usually get a next gen port, and so purposefully held off knowing there would be a port. A lot of people did the same with GTA V too, myself included. I could NOT wait for TLOU though, I had to get that on ps3 asap. And if you think I'm just pulling this out of my ass, all you have to do is go back and look at my comments from last summer relating to GTAV or TLOU and you'll see me say several times "can't wait for the inevitable PS4 port" or in regards to GTAV "The early trailers were clearly running on PC going off the lack of jaggys, I'll wait for a PC version or Next Gen version" not a direct quote but more of a lump sum of several comments I said throughout the build up to TLOU/GTAV's launch. And to respond to the clickbait title of this article, should you be concerned on what other people spend their hard earned money on? Surely there's more wasteful products they couldve went for like another entry in the COD series? At least this game had lasting impact and deserves every remaster and sale it gets and it's another chance for those who missed it the firs time to see what all the fuss and 10/10's were about.
I think that it's not worth the price tag, the whole thing wreaks on price gouging money grab to me. Good game, yes, pretty game, yes. Same game as a year ago, yes. Key point 1 year old game with a slight up res isn't worth all this high praise or mad hype and it defiantly isn't worth the day 1 AAA price. I'm not trolling that's my honest opinion. rehash is a rehash and the Sony crowd on here is going completely bonkers over it. I have never ever seen so many comparison articles and gameplay vids on N4G ever and it's not even a new game. Yet we PC crowd get attacked about articles which show games with graphical mods. This is essentially the same damn thing, yet console owners are willing to pay for what is just a modded version of what most of them already own. AND if we didn't buy TLOU then we wont buy it now just for a few extra pixels. Seriously guys get of the high horse for this one year old game. If you didn't ever buy it on PS3 and need games for PS4, that's the only real reason I could see anyone getting this. Anyone who owns the original on PS3 and buy this, well you know "a fool and his money are easily parted".
"I think that it's not worth the price tag," "If you didn't ever buy it on PS3 and need games for PS4, that's the only real reason I could see anyone getting this." Well it is worth the price tag for the people you mentioned at the end. Every bit. As for it being priced as a AAA game? It was 45 euro for me, that includes 30 euro worth of DLC. What AAA games, day 1, can I buy at this price, with all DLC included? I'd Love to know! Also generalising that all console owners are condemning PC owners for putting up modification articles all the time isn't doing you any favours. Sure a vocal few console owners might come off a bit fanboyish or passive aggressive towards the beauty and dedication shown off and put in to such fan PC modifications (and these are articles I love to see since I would LOVE to be able to run some of those mods) but they don't represent all console gamers. The Same way arrogant PC master race gamers don't represent all PC gamers :) Fanboys from all walks of life just happen to be louder and more opinionated than the more down to earth logical gamers. This isn't the first remake/port of a game to be released at the end of a gen and then cross over less than a year later to the newest gen and it wont be the last. This has been going on for DECADES. I've seen this "nex gen is full of remakes and ports" onslaught of articles at the start of every gen. Why do people keep falling in to the same trappings?! Rogue Legacy, a game that most PC's can run, is getting ported to ps4 tomorrow, where's the shit storm over that? It only came out fairly recently, I know I've played it to death on PC myself, so why no clickbait articles for this "cash grab"? Cos TLOU is big news, its a gaming behemoth and a lot of people are looking forward to it or are bitter they wont be playing it. So interjournopreneurs are having a field day with the clickbait ad revenue on it. Something they wouldn't get for flaming a lesser known title like Rogue Legacy. Hopefully we don't get this same bullcrap around the MC collections release date, time to grow up kids. I can already hear a legion of sony fanboys posting on those future MC collection articles hopign to get their own back for TLOU outlash, and it's hurting my head already.
They're not. They're asking about those of us who have played it.
Absolutely. Here are some pictures taken in game on PS4. http://abload.de/img/thelas... https://farm6.staticflickr.... http://109.imagebam.com/tem... http://abload.de/img/thelas... http://abload.de/img/201407... http://abload.de/img/201407...
no @die_fiend below. You my friend are why the saying "A fool and his money are easily parted" exists in the first place.
Your comment history is embarrassing to say the least. You're nothing short of a troll. All you have done for the past two days is bash this game and the people that are willing to buy it. Such a sad, sad individual.
If u haven't played it and u have a ps4 yes definitely worth every penny i told 2 of my mates to get it and they are goin to buy it,,,,awesome game.
Just played a few minutes of the story mode again. The 60fps is so good in the opening scenes while they are driving & running around the town... It's like they should put a 'The way it's meant to be played' tag on it!
I'll gladly spend $20 for this.
I totally agree, this game is not worth the money. The game was already espectacular, the improvements are so minor that you can't even notice.
"Cough" DLC "Cough" "Cough" Left Behind "Cough" "Cough" Multiplayer "Cough" "Cough" 1080P "Cough" "Cough" 60 FPS "Cough" I'm coughing quite a bit today, excuse me.
You know no one takes you seriously right? The improvements are not minor. You can see te difference even in highly compressed you tube videos. It comes with ALL dlc, double the frame rate and the texture resolution is 4x greater the in gam models are vastly improved. Keep your trolling to yourself.
Y'know, trolling only works when you're the one laughing at how butthurt and upset everyone else is. It doesn't really work the other way round.
Me and 3 of my mates have all completed it and played it loads on PS3. We're all getting it on PS4, because it's worth buying twice.
This guy knows what's up, Multiplayer for this game is up there with Metal Gear Online for me, and I typically hate online multiplayer.
Twiggy, It may seem like I'm stalking you but honestly you're just every where I go today. MGO was one of the best online games EVER, I managed to track down one of those PS2 ethernet thingys just to play it on Snake Eater:subsistence, and those things were an absolute rarity in ireland at the time, the majority of people still being on 56K dial up. Totally agree, metalGearOnline and TLOU MP are two of the most interesting and unique takes on the "shoot everyone that isn't you" modes of multiplayer. Spy v Mercs in splinter cell gets an honorable mention (before they removed it in recent installments, then reintroduced it and butchered it)
Its hard to take you seriously when you say something as ridiculous as not being able to see a difference between 30 and 60 fps.
If you want to.
Stupid article, highly regarded the greatest game of all time, and you want to know if it's worth money? HerpaDepraDerp. If you've already played TLOU on PS3, why even buy it then? seriously senile people here, I'm GLADLY forking out £40 for it because of the DLC, MP, Left Behind, and the Grounded difficulty, oh! did I mention it's the highest rated game of all time? Yeah, worth the damned money.
ordered mine this morning, i never played it before so im looking forward to friday. uk
Didn't have a PS3, but have a PS4.Heard so much good thing about this game, and managed to avoid the spoilers. I can't wait for it to get here. Hopefully it arrives today, but might have to wait until tomorrow.
"managed to avoid the spoilers" - lucky you. I played it three times back to back on PS3 going through the various difficulty levels. Such an awesome game. Wish I was a TLOU virgin again :(
Already downloading it as we speak
I finished the PS3 version last year. However I did give my PS3 & The Last Of Us to my daughter when I bought my PS4. So I gladly pre paid for this game at GS. Gotta have it!
Well what else are you going to spend on it!?
Right. There's not much to choose from. But kicking out more money for the same game is not my thing.
You could apply that argument to the MCC.
yes, you fuc.... journalist! should you spend money on the halo or tomb rider ????? jesus how meny stupid heaters!
Yea the reason I wanted a ps4 was to play this game (though I taught I would play it on ps now) but a remaster one is even better. Stocked
This journalist doesn't make a bad point though. I can agree. I had a 360 last gen and missed out on TLOU, so buying this is a no brainer for me. However, I would have a hard time justifying buying it again a year later for just slightly better textures, lighting, and resolution. There are much worse articles out there than this one.
Going to Gamestop to pick this up right after work! So yes...I should buy this game.
I would buy it ,if hadn't already played it in 10 80 on PS3. So not worth buying for me, besides I don't think it a game worth repetitive plays.
I won't buy it unless the value drop, already owned LOU on PS3. And I know what's the experience like to play in 60fps and 1080p because I owned a PC as well. I don't think paying full price is worth unless it drops to $10-$20.
Its worth it for me cuz I traded in my PS3 version a long time ago and I didn't get to try the multiplayer or Left Behind DLC. I'm also getting it for only 29.99 using my walmart rewards.
Dosen't matter about the difference its still worth a spend , also the difference is amazing soooooo.........
if you havent played it then yes. if you have played it and still have ps3 game then probably no. if you have played it but dont own game anymore and havent played dlc then imaybe go and buy it. this game is either for people who missed it or big fans.
To buy it? Oh hell yes!
too late already bought it. You can't stop me!
