The Last of Us Remastered Is The Fastest Selling PS4 Title On PSN

The Last of Us Remastered was released at the end of last month, both digitally and retail. Since then, it has been selling quite well despite being a re-release of a year old game and this doesn't appear to apply to retail sales only as the digital sales are also strong.

I would expect it is the fastest selling title on PSN. It's a top quality game, arguably the best PS4 game available and cheaper than other digital titles. I'm glad to see this doing so well especially as many buyers are new to the PlayStation platform and never got to play it last gen.

I'll probably be getting the US digital download, because the EU release has been censored.

I'm sure many other European gamers have done the same, which could be a part of the reason why the game is selling so well digitally.

This is a great opportunity for all of the new PS4 owners that came over from the Xbox 360 and missed out on this incredible game on the PS3, to enjoy one of the best games of the last generation.

Just some stuff in the multiplayer, like gore, decaps, executions, etc etc. They more graphic stuff got toned down quite a bit.

I know not everyone cares, but some do, so for those who do care, they can 'import' the USA version.

This is a very very poor way to estimate sales. I almost always buy my games digital and i think i might have used that rating system like once in my whole life

Problem with getting the US download is you will probably get match made with people in North America instead of Europe which means higher ping and lag.

I agree though it's wrong to censor the game across Europe just so people in Germany can get the same experience as the rest of Europe.

This is the sole reason why I will never play multiplayer in last of us or buy any future DLC

Personally I think Germany should have had it's own servers so that they can play the censored version while the rest of Europe can play the uncut version.

Yeah I agree with that move. Get the uncensored version. You don't want to miss out on all the head smashing, clicker killing goodness that this game has.

Also when they arent any games to play. Makes sense.

Are you talking about xbox720?
What was the last true AAA exclusive? Forza 5? Isnt it a launch game? Oh, my!

HanzoHattori705d ago (Edited 705d ago )

So what game has come out on the Xbox One this summer? Hmmm... Let's see... Excluding all the multiplatform games that number comes to an amazingly irrelevant THREE. And none of them are triple A quality like TLOU Remastered.

Pinball Fx
Sixty Second Shooter Prime
Zombie Driver Ultimate

So if anyone is to believe your original statement about the PS4's library of games, "Also when they arent any games to play. Makes sense." Then we all must agree that since the only games worth mentioning to come out on the Xbox One since June were multiplatform, and the exact same games are on the PS4, then anyone who believes that the PS4 doesn't have any games must also conclude that the Xbox One has no games either. It wouldn't be so bad if you were an amusing troll, but you aren't even a troll worth mentioning.

May very well be true BUT there's is no source for this article, the writer is just guessing based on number of user ratings

HanzoHattori705d ago

If you had a PS4 you can see the number of thumbs up are on games. We rate them directly from the console.

I bought it again and love it. Playing on grounded is interesting. Then last night, i bought Diablo 3:UEE and I can't put it down. Oh well, both will be on ice September 9th...lol!

It deserves to be. Definitely the best next-gen game so far. They improved it in every way but the 60fps is amazing. Sony needs to figure out a way to clone Naughty Dog.

KUV1977706d ago (Edited 706d ago )

Actually I was disappointed by the HD-remaster. There are so many graphical glitches that have not been on PS3 that it seems they took 2 big steps forward (1080p, 60fps) and a hundred small steps back. From weird clipping errors over lights shining through objects to missing lighting maps and weird transparency issues. Even the ending credits have misplaced slides. The game itself is amazing but the remaster quality is rather poor and actually affects the atmosphere/immersion negatively. Never thought I would say that about a Naughty Dog game, but I expected a lot more.

BLKxSEPTEMBER706d ago

Actually to me this is kind of sad that a last gen game is the fastest selling next gen game on ps4. It says alot about the ps4 library. No trolling just my opinion. Sure this is good news if you never played TLOU on ps3 but what about those of us who did? what do we have to play on ps4 right now? indie games? both current gen systems are seriously lacking in the games department.

Malacath706d ago

I agree.

Personally even though I love the game (Apart from the multiplayer because it's censored in Europe to keep Germany happy).

I don't think it's a good example of a next gen game.

The graphics are upgraded but it doesn't exactly push the hardware. Personally I don't think it looks that much different to the ps3 version. Also the levels have the same limitations where you travel a certain distance then previous areas get mysteriously sealed off so you can't go back. This was obviously done originally due to the ps3's small amount of RAM. There is no reason that the ps4 version has do this.

As usual, however, you haven't said anything.
