The Last of Us Remastered has received an update today for the PS4 Pro.
It's starting!!!!!! the PS4 Pro patch love!!!!! just ordered my 4K tv!!! should be here by the end of the week. picking up the PS4 Pro on 11/10!! had it paid off in full since the first available day to pre-order
Nice Nice, I already had a 4kTV bought one this summer. I just bought the PSVR and played it enough to know the difference between the 2 when I launch the same games on the PS4Pro, I also just bought Titanfall, Deus Ex and Skyrim because they have Pro upgrades so I want to experience the what's new as well. I haven't unwrapped Deus Ex though that may happen sometime next week.
Just got my hdr 4k tv last month and downloaded tlou again..I'll see first hand how improved it is....and again when I get the pro on the 10th! Played deux ex hDr and it looks fantastic. ..gunna look even better on the pro Darth...I've already said those are some of the best looking games this year, and by far the best looking xbox/win10 games. But since we are talking about the ps4 I seen no reason to bring them up. Check my comments if you thought I had a bias. Smh. You wish I had a bias..I'm just critical in the bad that MS does, I praised forza h3 and gears.....especially forza h3, it's the better looking game of the 2. People just choose to ignore the complements I give xbox games when they look good.
@thrash, have you played forza horizon 3 and gears 4 on that HDR tv? What do you think of the color quality? edit: Dude, chill. I didnt know you just got an HDR tv. Not everything is about bias. Sometimes its about honest curiosity. I aint got the time to go weeding through peoples history. I asked because I knew you would likely answer, you answered... life goes on. thank you.
@darthv72 - Forza Horizon 3 looks insanely good on a 4K HDR tv :) I just aim to hoard all the games with a PS4 (most likely upgrade to pro soon once the wife doesn't notice) and the Xbox One S :P
You're going to enjoy that one. Finished it a couple weeks ago :3
I have mine pre ordered awhile ago and was still on the fence about keeping it but idk something about seeing a ND game in 4K with HDR just got me saying "keep it!". I'll be there day one. I can't wait to see what graphical increases we get from psvr games. Psvr is so good already, I can only imagine how much better it can be.
I can agree about being very impressed with how cool PSVR already is and... can't wait to try it out further on Nov 10th.
I'm with you... Still on the fence. Preordered mine the first day they went live, but having a hard time justifying the upgrade. I do have somebody willing to give me $200 for my launch unit, but even then, I prefer the physical look of the original.
But...but...the PS4 can't do 4K native..👌
Yeah I wonder if MS will change the ad that said "only console with true 4k"
C'mon guys, I can't wait to get my Pro but I wouldn't be trumpeting 4K from a PS3 remaster.
The saddest thing of all is that most of you bitching about how its a ps3 game yet it's one of the best looking games on ps4 and has been praised for that!!! The stupity is amazing....how many devs are even using close to the power of a few AAA developers ....everyone bitching about power and none of the games show off power bahaha pathetic 8 outta 10 devs use 10 year old engines and you eat it up. And yeah ms would be the only true 4k technically!!!!! Where is the 4k drive for my uhd movies on pro.....??? Oh yeah cuz Netflix is gonna have all the new 4k movies pathetic.....enjoy ur living art 4k on Netflix....Oh wait ps4 still doesn't have 4k Netflix....weird...I'll play exclusive 4k pro games on the pro and do my real 4k on ms since anyone who loves movies and the best quality for that in a current console is Xbox s....its just a 100% fact and thats all there is....cuz at the end of the day it's one simple :-\....... Question "friend: oh cool ps4pro 4k let's watch the shallows 4k!!!....ME: ohhh umm it actually doesn't play those futuristic uhd rays...." lolololol so sad.... The largest library of 4k and hdr content is found in physical media but we don't need that???....I'm gonna wait 5 years for Netflix to watch sausage party 4k....lol ok UPDATE yup pathetic....what uhd are you watching on the pro next week? All you have to do is tell me??? Sony is my system of choice and not my fault they messed up and didn't include actual physical 4k media drive is absolutely insane. With how much support and money we gamers invested in Sony consoles/tv's/games/music/ movies we don't deserve a full capable system. I'm PISSED because you guys are not!! So easily distracted and taken away from the game....but instead of admitting that you are pissed or don't understand the exclusion you act like it doesn't matter! If you like 4k tvs and hdr then you want uhd disc....watch star trek into the darkness 4k hdr and tell me different.
damn!! i am so jealous... i already have the 4k tv but the Pro will release around Jan-Feb 2017 here in India.. so a long wait...
I hope your 4k TV supports HDR
I dont get it. It still looks generic
How does it look generic? I think Naughty Dog have some fantastic artists and I feel they nailed the right look and atmosphere for The Last of Us.
I'm thinking PS4 Pro is gonna do good
Anyone know if the PS4 PRo supports HDMI 2.0 or 2.0a? Because for 4K HDR this is really important and I can't find anything about this
A quote from EgoGrinder on Reddit "High dynamic range displays require just as much data throughput for so much color and luminosity data. The two leading HDR specs, HDR-10 and Dolby Vision, require no less than an "HDMI 2.0a" spec, which supplants the higher-bandwidth requirements of 2.0 with "additional metadata" required to enable the transmission/reception of such HDR content. There is no HDMI "1.4a" to offer the same boosts to HDR-ready 1080p displays. To ride the HDR train, your device better be rated HDMI 2.0a, or you're getting kicked off. Rigby guessed last year that the PlayStation 4's HDMI controller is HDMI 2.0 compatible—meaning, it had been developed with higher bandwidth than the HDMI 1.4 spec required, and it just needed an official update via firmware to unlock and unleash that potential. Now, House has confirmed that it's coming, because anything rated for HDR specifications is technically also ready for 4K resolution." It has basically been discovered that even the stock PS4 has a proprietary Panasonic HDMI 1.4 port that utilizes 2.0a technology before the tech was fully ready for mass production, or even implementation without updated firmware, which is now ready.
@ColonelHugh Thank you for that
Looks a little better from the comparison shots but really hard to gauge the actual difference unless you're looking at them natively.
Trust me there's a huge difference from 1080p to 4k, its 4 times the pixels on screen if its native. Especially in open world games that have a good draw distance, things in the distance look so much clearer and have a lot more detail.
I agree with you. 4K is a game changer. People that say it isnt have not seen it. I watched Luke Cage on Netflix 4K with HDR and you could see the pores in the peoples skin. It is a breakthrough. It has a very realistic, "live" look about it compared to 1080p.
I saw Rise of the Tomb Raider running on a shiny new 1080 on a 4k TV at my friends house. It is a significant step up. Certainly from the perspective of this lowly peasant.
* only visible on screens that support HDR.
Cmon! want to play The Last of US 2. Just put a trailer out ND.
Hopefully all this TLOU talk is all in preparation to unveil TLOU2.
I like ps4, but to me pro is something i will not buy. Not enough oomph to make me justify a purchase.
Yea, I'm with you. I'm all about my PSVR right now as it is. Everyone hyping out about 4K gaming, which is kinda sad. PSVR is so much more than anything else going on in gaming right now. It's the next huge leap to get excited about, instead of a few extra pixels! It's completely immersive and people need to really give it a go. I used to be all about graphics too, until I tried the VR. Seems like people are getting more excited about a couple extra shrubs in a game, than actual full immersion. Sad
Prefer psvr to traditional gaming ?
consider getting the pro to boost performance of the PSVR, that is actually what alot of us are doing, myself included. i dont even own a 4k tv yet,
If you are an existing PS4 owner, there is no real reason to get PS4 Slim or Pro. I would rather get PS VR, but I don't recommend that either right now. VR is still very much tech demo right now. If you are new to PS and dead set on getting a PS, then I would highly recommend only getting PS4 Pro. PS4 Slim is a poor deal and nobody should bite on that.
Next year it will be more worth it cause there will be more games that supports the updates and more gamers will have a 4K UHDTV that supports HDR10. The price may also be lower as well. It's definitely worth getting if you want to upgrade your PS4. Skip the PS4 Slim entirely. The PS5 probably won't get announced until the end of 2018. So this will be the PS4 to own for awhile.
This is the closest we've ever come to feeling part of the world you are in, with PSVR. I can honestly say I definately prefer it to traditional gaming. In a lot of ways it has ruined my normal gaming. When I've tried to go back to my usual gaming, it doesn't feel right. I don't enjoy it like I did before. I was one of those people that wanted nothing to do with the PSVR. I gave it a try and was blown away. It definately is a huge leap in gaming. When I first tried battlezone and was looking around in my cockpit, I felt a sense of clostraphobia. PSVR actually scared me at just how real it felt. It put me into its own world and made me forget where I was even sitting. I cannot say enough good things about the PSVR, other than it's completely changed the way I look at games now. I think everyone needs to experience it. I want to play every game thru it! Very hard for me to play traditional now.
Your comment has certainly given food for thought.
VR is definitely very cool and has a lot of potential. I've been singing it's praises for quite a while now.
Shame you can't actually see the difference. But the variance at all shows that the HDR mode is at least functioning, even if we can't appreciate the fruits of that function.
You can clearly see more grass and more realistic hair. @ bellow Can't sense sarcasm?
OMG! Im gonna go buy it now, more grass and more realistic hair! Totally worth spending more money, time, and effort for blades of grass and strings of hair because that is going to make the actual GAME better! /s
Has 0 to do with hdr. Hair and grass......yay? Slowly getting turned off from these new consoles. Just not seeing a big difference if any. I hooe they use the power fir gameplay elements rather than graphical.
HDR = hair dryer resistance
@lastking 'Just not seeing a big difference' Well, unless you have a HDR compatible 4k display, then you wouldn't.
@Lastking, They wont use the power to change gameplay mechanics unless all they are doign is making certain mechanics look flashier, (bigger explosions etc.) at the end of the day, every game has to be playable first on ps4, and then patched for pro, so the core game is still the same, patch can be frame rate increase for SP, more assets on screen, longer draw distances. stuff liek that
I dont have 4k tv yet but im waiting for a oled 4k tv too come down in price then ill secure it for ps4 pro and xbox scorpio models
Does it add anything new to story and gamplay? No so there's no big improvement.
Don't be that guy. There's a big graphical improvement. From 1080p to native 4K. HDR on every PS4 out there. One of the best games ever just became even better.
Don't be that guy? So I'm suppose to agree and praise the almighty 4K power like everyone else. No not me. TLOU is an amazing game but 4K won't make it a better game. Story and gameplay already made it a great game.
@PizzaSteve Don't be that guy as in that guy that sees the article and complains about something else entirely. Why start about gameplay or story when the title and article don't talk about anything like that? The title talks about HDR and PS4 Pro support, which includes native 4K, so why bring in the story and gameplay? Which both are great by the way. You don't have to praise the "almighty 4K power", but you don't have to go off-topic and talk about stuff that has nothing to do with the PS4 Pro. 4K and better visuals could make it more immersive and thus a better game too.
You're hyping it out too much. Seriously, get a PSVR and stop concerning yourself with a few extra pixels! All about immersion in gaming. PSVR has changed the way we think about games! That's what people need to be getting excited about!
It doesn't have to, The Last of Us is already a masterpiece.
This is the only reason I would get a Pro, for this game.
Horizon Zero Dawn, FF XV, Ni No Kuni 2, The Last Guardian, Ni-Oh and a bunch of other games as well.
Is HDR that big of a deal? All I ever see when HDR is mentioned is the sky and clouds. Whether it's TLoU, U4, Horizon 3 all the comparisons show better clouds and sky!
All the TV experts say HDR is a bigger deal than 4k, but the only way you can get it is with a 4k TV. As an 4k HDR TV owner I have watch regular Blu-rays vs 4k Blu-ray and the color is so much better on the 4k Blu-rays.
I think the easiest way is to see for yourself. Try going into a shop where they are showing it off on one of their TV's. Or rob a bank.
Tried it out this morning. The game does look better. Will definitely be hitting this up on the pro day one
I'm most likely going to purchase a Ps4p to accompany my x1.
seriously if they didnt put it in order i wouldnt be able to tell which one is the normal and the pro. any way i wouldnt buy this for the pro i'm not saying it's a bad game it's just not my thing
I get what your saying but it's impossible to get the full picture of these sceeenshots if you don't have a 4k HDR TV. My dilemma is that I have a 4k TV but with no HDR. Oh well, I'm still going to enjoy my Pro and may get a HDR TV in the next year or 2 during Black Friday. No disagree from me.
How with all these new IP's and exclusives Sony has is there not a game coming out with the PRO?
Why would they need one? The thing's not gonna have exclusive titles, releasing a game alongside it would merely add confusion to the mix.
I'm not saying game that is exclusive to the PRO, I'm saying a game coming out alongside the PRO of course it will work on the regular PS4. Hows is there confusion in dropping a game alongside a new console?
Well the Pro is another PS4 which is why Sony wont make games exclusive to it. I believe COD is the first game designed to take advantage of the Pros hardware. Next year Sony has Horizon which will show off the Pros hardware quite well.
Its not a pro hdr comparison! Both are from the standard ps4 in 1080p one using hdr mode. and without a hdr screen how could you judge anything?
Just like the difference between 200 meg Internet and 300 but not like the difference between dial up and broadband.
this was a nice surprise. looks pretty good in hdr, can't wait for uncharted to get it though more poly's more light reflections ect. thus better looking when hdr hits.
Ok, that explains the update last night. I started playing LToU for the first time since it launched last night. I'm on the Remastered version and I'm not far into the game but it's ot the same. I LOVED the game on my first playthrough and I purposefully take long breaks between replays of games I love but I'm not sure what it is that had me not enjoying it last night?! It could be the 60fps option but when I toggled back to 30 I realized 60 was a huge bonus. The cut scenes didn't feel too "fast" or soap opera-ish, like I'd heard they were at 60fps. The game itself felt clunky and nothing like the amazing experience I had a few years ago. I play old games all the time so it's not an issue of tech, etc. I still love the MGS series (just finished it again this year), Uncharted series (all but 4 on PS3) and many others. Maybe I'm not far enough yet to really get back into it but something about the Remaster feels "off". Anyone with the same issue and/or should I replay on PS3? I'm almost at the Capitol and it felt more like a chore so far than one of my favorite titles ever, despite being pumped to play again. Is it the Remaster or am I in need of mental council (ha)?
Cutscenes aren't in 60fps as far as I'm aware, they are hardcoded to the original version of the game, which is why they look blurrier than the gameplay. I definitely would not revert to the PS3 version; Perhaps you don't recall, but the framerate is all over the place in comparison. It is an aging game, but still one of the best experiences in recent memory. If you really need help getting it to play as you remember it, try adjusting either the difficulty or sensitivity level. However, I would suggest waiting for the Pro version if you plan on spending the big bucks for the total gaming package.
Need a pro badly #ps4profanboy
