ShackNews - "We already know The Last of Us is a fantastic game. Even if you've championed the game on PS3, though, the PlayStation 4 "Remastered" version is well worth experiencing."
What a load of poppycock!!
Keep trying to stop the waves with a napkin... OT: I couldnt get my copy yesterday :( They were sold out after work at nearly EVERY gamestop in a 20 mile radius of my house :( I'm actually VERY surprised by this... I'm interested in seeing the sales numbers for this game. What if the remaster sells more than the PS3 version?? :0
More than 7 million copies? I dont think so but I believe it will sell at least a million copies.
^ Maybe not more than 7 Million but give it a year and I'm sure it'll do at least 4 million.
Headline will only hold true until the Master Chief collection releases, and that is a fact. I just bought this game and I don't see what the big deal is. I played to the point where you meet the little girl, stopped yesterday, and don't really have any desire to pick it back up. Seems this game is highly overrated. Maybe it gets better but the hour or two I've played have been underwhelming. Maybe the incredible hype and all the GotY awards have set my expectations way to high. But from what I've played, its clear GTAV should have got all those awards, and I think TLoU just got them because it is a new franchise and not a sequel.
@XBL Game barely started at that point smart one. Smh
@xbl where he meets ellie? thats the very beginning lol give it a little more time, it gets good. people made it seem like its the greatest game ever made, which i don't agree with, but it is a really good game. id definitely try it again if i were you
"I just bought this game and I don't see what the big deal is. I played to the point where you meet the little girl, stopped yesterday, and don't really have any desire to pick it back up. Seems this game is highly overrated." This guy *literally* hasn't fought ANY infected yet in a post-apocalyptic game where an infection was the cause, and now he's writing the game off and personally discrediting any praise achieved?
Really? I am buying this game as I never got to play it on PS3. That aside, this remaster seems like a pretty lazy port. The visuals are almost identical other than upres, there is paid dlc releasing AFTER the remaster (i have never heard of a goty or remaster pulling that) and nothing really differentiates it from the original. Don't get me wrong I believe that this remake SHOULD have happened, and am happy it did, but it is certainly not an impressive port, just a necessary one.
Are you here in another The Last of Us comment thread, trying to drag it down? Don't you get tired of shouting at the hurricane?
The author of this article doesn't even believe that title. It has been confirmed that there are few differences between the 2 versions. Halo MCC laughs at tlou remastered, hell sony never even showed gameplay.
confirmed by who? misterx? certainly not the reviews that cite it as one of the best looking next gen games...
Every time I see one of you idiots say "CONFIRMED" LIKE IT HOLDS ANY FACTUAL MERIT...it makes me feel like I lost a few IQ points
Once again someone keeps bringing up halo in a tlou article! Laughable! I don't no what world you live in but not everyone likes halo in the first place! I've had the 360 as well as the xbone and ps4 and I never cared for halo! The Last of us needs no defending from anyone! All you have to do is Google it to see its glorious well deserved praise! Kick rocks!
Master chief collection will be the new star. 4 games for $60. That's a deal. If you ask me $50 for a pretty and smoother version of a year old game is far too much.
Uh, don't forget you also get all the DLC / bonus content in that 50 dollar package. But then again your bias would lead you to omit that fact, wouldn't it?
Let me ask you this all those Halo games what are their value right now??? As for TLoU on Ps3 its about $27 http://www.amazon.com/The-L... Plus all the DLc and with improve visuals its well worth the price plus is you have the Ps3 version and don't want to pay full price just trade it in and pay half the price.
@speak da truth you're comparing prices of a game thats a year old to games that span all the way back over 10 years? lol come on now. compare sales if you want to compare something.
Hard to argue with the value of a newer game, versus a bunch of older games. I think TLoU is the better value personally.
I'm a staunch TLOU supporter but you have to admit that comparison is really flawed.
I made the comparison because of what @Dudebro said thats all.
Can't argue with that really, first timers will be the ones who benefit from TLOUR, I'm buying it simply for an excuse to play it again with all the extra bells n' whistles. If I had an Xbox I'd probably buy the Halo collection, that is something worth dipping for.
know whats better than the master chief collection? the sega genesis collection. over 50 games.
I Just finished The LEFT BEHIND Story DLC! It was so good. I loved how it balanced the Time of present and past! I just wished they'd have told more into the story of how ELLIE Had to deal with seeing Riley turn! It was gripping to say the least, I felt sorry for both of them. Really good mechanics!
Shush... no story spoilers... I am playing through for the first time. Thanks.
WOW!!! Thanks for effin ruining the dlc for me all of those who read your goddamn comment.
He didn't really spoil anything.
I spoiled nothing! You'll see how it goes. Youll enjoy it.
Lets also add the notion that this one game is better than all four halo games. God damn overrated arena shooter
We could throw it into perspective here you know. Halo 1 and 2 can be bought for less than $5. Halo 3 for about 5 Halo 4 for 20. Just because you're getting more games doesn't make the value any different. Now that being said it's talking price only. I plan on getting MCC
You mean in how fast they (Sony) can jack your wallet twice? Yes, it is a new standard. I thought Ground Zeros was a new low. This surpassed it.
"Highest rated video-game of all time." The word gets around, and quite a few people want to experience it, it ain't jacking if you buy it willingly, especially if you haven't played it before.
But it isn't the highest rated video game of all time. Not being so doesn't hurt the quality of the game, but it is an easy search to see that it isn't the highest rated.
Not the highest rated on Metacritic, but won the most Game of the Year awards.
I stand corrected, thanks gentlemen! Still, don't let these people stop you from buying this game if you want it, totally worth the cash. Best experience I'd had since Metal Gear Solid 3 back in 2004. That was a while ago mind you, glad a game could match and at times top my all time favorite.
It has won more GOTY awards than any other game in history, and has won 5 BAFTA awards. In my book that's more validation than metacritic.
Ocarina of Time is the "Highest rated video game of all time. 99 Metacritic with 22 reviews. Not saying anything bad, but I think BS hype articles like this. "Sets new standard for rereleases" This game only gives incentive for newcomers...Anyone who buys it again is getting ripped off...Unless they take advantage of a nice trade in deal or something. Going to play it with my friends this Saturday. Looking forward to playing the Factions mode again. (Been a while since we played together) but the game pace won't make much of a difference for "60 FPS". I think it's the BS N4G hype that's causing people to call this game out. The lack of strong advertising for the remastered causes pause.
Uh huh... I bet you're one of the people complaining about when Sony doesn't offer choices.
Oh I'm sorry, Didn't know you were forced to buy it.
Did Sony release Ground Zeroes on Xbox too? No wait, that was an entirely different company that had nothing to do with Sony.
LMAO!!! you compare a 2 hour prologue a complete 17 hour game with a full multiplayer suit and all the DLC along with a host of next gen specific upgrades and call it a cash grab! LOL have you played 2013's most awarded game? Sure 4 games sold better than it last year, (BF4, AC4, COD:G, and GTAV) but none was as gripping or more rewarding than that game. Shame on Sony for giving 40% percent of its install base on PS4 an experience they never played last gen because they only owned competing consoles...
Saying that 1080p/60FPS + a couple of new models and textures here and there sets a "new standard for rereleases" is not even a exaggeration, it's pure fanboyism. I suppose the reviewer never heard of Fable: Anniversary, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, DuckTales: Remastered or the latest Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty. These titles were far more improved from their originals than The Last of Us Remastered.
You forgot the commentary, added videos, ALL of the dlc and a photo mode.
It doesn't include "ALL" of the dlc.
LOL! trolls out the woodwork everywhere.. keep it up! Playing the best game of last year on new hardware with better technological upgrades is never a bad thing!
"Best game of last year" Gaming is based on preference. My favorite game of last year was "State of Decay" Second was obviously The Last of Us. But we all know people are trolling because of all the BS N4G hype articles. It's not even that good of a remaster. Matter of fact, it's a pretty bad one.
TLOU REMASTERED highest rated game on every next gen console
lol i love how this is glossed over while other HD remakes are being hated on. Sham how they dont even offer an upgrade incentive for people who already have the game.
Yes, the new standard of milking rereleases! Come one, we all know that Ubisoft is dying to milk that cow too, and from there everything will be history.
Some basic texture work and resolution upgrade sets the standard? By remaking the graphics from scratch like nintendo does with their remakes and microsoft with halo, that's more like a remaster done right. This remaster is more like a port, like dark souls 2 on pc
Personally I don't consider TLOU a remaster, It is obvious that this version was on the cards for a while and most of the work such as the higher res textures was already created and just needed putting in. It is more of an ultimate edition but I guess remastered was used for the PR and marketing, some marketing person crying when seeing an ultimate version sounds a lot more lame than crying when seeing a remaster. Just sounds cooler but it isn't what I imagine when I think remastered.
11.11.14 Legends Never Die
[email protected] Someone trying to get payed, I entered the PSN store to get the DLC for TLOU on the PS3. Should be free for me, because I have a season pass. Low and behold they wanted 7.99 for 7 mask. Season pass don't mean shit anymore.
Nope it doesn't... It's all going to be about subscription now.
Great. Now instead of making new games, everyone will just keep re-releasing their old products with better graphics. And all these fools will keep endorsing it
you mad? if you dont want to play remaster editions vote with your wallet and avoid them.
Its all good for remastered versions but in tlou case I'm pissed...not only was it way too soon but it was nd who was making the remastered version which was time consuming when they could have moved on to better things like say a new platformer or IP but no instead they had a team port an already amazing game when Sony could have had another developer port it over and nd could have put their full efforts on uncharted 4
I love the last of us but IMO it was way too soon for a remaster... And if this is the new standard in remasters then the master chief collection will set it a lot higher and probably will never be set any higher for a very long time..
Windwaker HD anyone????that game set the standard in my opinion
Admittedly I was skeptical and disappointed about the "upgrades" i saw on the web about this and kinda felt it wasn't worth the money. Good but not mind blowing. then my love of naughty dog came thru and i thought - I should buy the remaster regardless just to support such an amazing studio... then i played it. HOLY SH**. I will eat every word I said about it not being a proper next gen remaster. it is absolutely gorgeous. The hair and facial animations are still tiny weak spots compared to some new games but everything else is so amazing that you really don't even care. I know people rarely agree with me on this site, but this is a title people should pick up - especially if you've never played it before. not only is it a gorgeous remaster, its a remaster of one of the best, highest quality games ever made imo.
Bold claim, but to each their own.
people getting mad about this seriously have problems. Realize that this is coming out a year after the initial game. most big games come out with goty editions that cost $60 dollars with all the dlc a year after they come out. This is like that but they also Made it into a freaking remaster, 30fps 720p into 60fps 1080p. And then they cut off ten dollars and people are still complaining. it's a steal people
I own The Last of Us and it awesome and it looks awesome. But I cant say its setting the standard in remasters. Halo MCC, especially Halo 2 remaster looks awesome and its a game that came out two gens ago. Edit: just wanted to LOL...... and then, SMH.. Not taking anything away from TLOUR. Seems like the fanboys will give the nod to their respective game. In my humble opinion as a neutral gamer I think Halo MCC will set the standard just because of the overall package.
