The Last of Us Remastered sets new standard for rereleases

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!!

Angels37851390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

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

MasterCornholio1390d ago

More than 7 million copies?

I dont think so but I believe it will sell at least a million copies.

SoapShoes1390d ago

^ Maybe not more than 7 Million but give it a year and I'm sure it'll do at least 4 million.

XBLSkull1390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

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.

ABeastNamedTariq1390d ago


Game barely started at that point smart one. Smh

marlinfan101390d ago


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?

nicksetzer11390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

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?

truefan11390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

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.

1390d ago
Angels37851390d ago

confirmed by who?


certainly not the reviews that cite it as one of the best looking next gen games...

Angels37851390d ago

Every time I see one of you idiots say "CONFIRMED" LIKE IT HOLDS ANY FACTUAL makes me feel like I lost a few IQ points

objdadon1390d ago

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.

thereapersson1390d ago

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?

Speak_da_Truth1390d ago

Let me ask you this all those Halo games what are their value right now??? As for TLoU on Ps3 its about $27

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.

marlinfan101390d ago

@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.

EData1390d ago

Hard to argue with the value of a newer game, versus a bunch of older games.

I think TLoU is the better value personally.

thereapersson1390d ago

I'm a staunch TLOU supporter but you have to admit that comparison is really flawed.

Speak_da_Truth1390d ago

I made the comparison because of what @Dudebro said thats all.

PaleMoonDeath1390d ago

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.

user74029311390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

know whats better than the master chief collection? the sega genesis collection. over 50 games.

Sevir1390d ago

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!

GW2121390d ago

Shush... no story spoilers... I am playing through for the first time. Thanks.

Ripsta7th1390d ago

WOW!!! Thanks for effin ruining the dlc for me all of those who read your goddamn comment.

Silly gameAr1390d ago

He didn't really spoil anything.

Sevir1390d ago

I spoiled nothing! You'll see how it goes. Youll enjoy it.

SuperBlunt1390d ago

Lets also add the notion that this one game is better than all four halo games. God damn overrated arena shooter

Allsystemgamer1390d ago

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.

PaleMoonDeath1390d ago

"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.

Zodiac1390d ago

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.

LordMaim1390d ago

Not the highest rated on Metacritic, but won the most Game of the Year awards.

PaleMoonDeath1390d ago

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.

ArchangelMike1390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

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.

OpieWinston1390d ago

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.

eferreira1390d ago

Oh I'm sorry, Didn't know you were forced to buy it.

LordMaim1390d ago

Did Sony release Ground Zeroes on Xbox too?

No wait, that was an entirely different company that had nothing to do with Sony.

Sevir1390d ago

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.

eferreira1390d ago

You forgot the commentary, added videos, ALL of the dlc and a photo mode.

sorane1390d ago

It doesn't include "ALL" of the dlc.

Sevir1390d ago

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!

OpieWinston1390d ago

"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.

patrik231390d ago

TLOU REMASTERED highest rated game on every next gen console
