PlayStation: Winner of over 200 Game of the Year awards, The Last of Us Remastered features the critically and commercially acclaimed game fully realized on the PlayStation®4 system in 1080p.
Double dip time!!!
Yeah, I'll have to go in for a second time as well.
"This game is anticipated to be rated mature" Lol, you don't way. Can't wait for this
Simple. Class. A Masterpiece for those who could not play it on PS3 !
I haven't bought it for the ps3 yet, so I'm definitely getting this on the ps4... Good thing I have a crazy high volume of games to still play, otherwise I would have played this by now.
As much as I love TLOU, probably one of the best games I have ever played in my life, I have to say that this is a blatant cash grab that Sony should be ashamed of. The PS3 is not an ancient console, The Last of Us is not even a year old, and there is no justification for re-releasing this game at full retail price. I don't want to hear "but it's good for people who haven't played it yet" or "but it comes with all the DLC" or "it's for fans of the game." To those reasons I reply with "buy a PS3 and the game" and "that's no reason to be charging full price for a game that's just receiving some graphical overhauls and isn't even a year old yet" and "play your original copy of TLOU again." These practices need to end. It's one thing to remaster an old game, like PS1 to early PS3 old, but this is a game that isn't even a year old yet. It's clearly a move to make up for slow releases of games on the PS4. Sony should have Naughty Dog focusing on new games, not remastering a game you can currently buy for $50 new.
People were asking for it from the time it released. That's all the justification you need. Plus you say its 50 on ps3, isn't the dlc, the graphic upgrade, the share button worth the extra 10 by bucks? If you think no, then exercise the choice you've been given and don't buy it. Judging by the fans reactions, many don't feel that way so there is obviously a demand for this.
@DragonKnight. Many 360 owners are new owners of a PS4, they now have a chance to play this modern masterpiece. If the game had new DLC that was only available on this edition then it would be unscrupulous because it would be forcing owners of the PS3 edition to double dip - however this is not the case. Purchase of the PS4 edition is optional so it's not a money grab.
It doesn't matter if people were asking for it or if people were 360 gamers who now have a PS4. The people asking for it are the same people who will then go on to complain about other B.S. moves that these companies make and yet give the go ahead on blatant cash grabs? It's B.S. and you know it. Why is this ok but MGS Ground Zeroes not? Answer is it's not ok. Same crap different day. If you're against Day One DLC, On-Disc DLC, Microtransactions, releasing unfinished games, and all of the other B.S. these companies have thrown at us, you have to be against blatant cash grabs like this too. I mean, this may as well be The Last of Us Turbo. Is Sony going to be pulling a Capcom but with less effort put behind it? If you were a 360 fan and wanted to play TLOU, you should have bought a PS3 to do it. It's actually cheaper to buy a PS3 to do it than it will be to buy a PS4 just for some graphical enhancements and couple of DLC. I'm sorry, but this is an unjustifiable cash grab meant to bolster the slow release of PS4 games. Fans ask for a lot of stuff that is never honored, this is only happening because the game is still fresh in people's minds. But it's $50 on the PS3, and will be $60 on the PS4. That's robbery plain and simple. Why you people support things like this and the Tomb Raider remaster at full price is beyond me to understand, but you're telling these companies that certain types of gouging and corporate B.S. are ok. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile.
Dragon... if you don't want the game then don't buy it. Its not your place to tell people what they should do with their money. I had the game for ps3 and got the platinum for it and still am buying it for the ps4. I didn't know that the remastered version came with all the dlc in which i didn't play any of, so thanks for giving me another reason to purchase the game again. This is hands down the best game (I have ever played)and can't wait to play again with updated graphics. Everybody should get to experience a game as great as this and my friends that didn't own a ps3 but now own a ps4 will get to.
This is a great move by Sony for me. =) I had a ps3 and was extremely close in purchasing TLOU and Beyond 2 Souls, but I didn't because I knew I'd be getting a PS4. So now this comes along and I am one happy customer! Peanut butter jelly time!
-free 27 gigs off my ps3 -dlc i was about to buy included free -upgraded graphics -no longer have to switch systems to play it -second breath for the mp -it's one of the best games ever Yeah i'll drop another 60 on it.
Does anyone know if the trophies will be across PS3 and PS4?
I believe on the ps blog or on Ign they said they are separate trophies so you will have to earn them again. For me that's a bonus, I'll definitely give this version a couple more playthroughs.
If they're separate then I hope they're not the same trophies. I'll probably get the platinum again but other challenges would be welcome.
@Toon_Link Really....the least they could of done was give us some trophies to get
I'm with you on this one, I almost never rebuy a game but this time I can't help myself. I guess its a good thing this comes out in summer guaranteeing I got the extra cash to spend.
60 bucks is highway robbery, they are basically turning the graphics settings up just like a graphics setting menu on a pc game. IT DOESNT EVEN LOOK THAT MUCH BETTER, why are sony drones all over this when tomb raider definitive edition was charging 60 bucks and everyone went crazy about the price
Lior, it also includes all dlc.
$40 for the basic game reworked, and $20 for all the DLC equalssss *wait for it*.... $60. Bam! Try harder. Edit: @Lior, not you Deadmanshand, I agree with you.
Haha, thank you I've been asking myself that as well.
I have an idea! Every time a new language dominates the planet, let's NOT translate the Bible; Homer's Odyssey; Sun Tzu's Art of War; or any other work of art so that new generations can appreciate it. Yeah, let's NOT do that. But if we somehow get the crazy notion to go ahead and DO IT, we need to do it for free. 'Cus, you know. It's EXACTLY the same thing it was before. Sony drones, LOL. Glad to drone for cultured AAA titles, I am.
double dipping with full pride on this one its a no brainer
Not enough to pay full price again, IMHO. Everyone should play this game at least once, though, so if you happen to own a PS4, don't even hesitate. The same goes for PS3 owners who haven't already played it, and it's slightly cheaper on PS3, also, it might as well drop in price even more now that the PS4 version is releasing.
U FANBOY! THIS TOTALLY WORTH FULL PRICE ID PAY THAT TWICE! DISAGREE!! /s seriously though people, he said that everyone should at least play it once and I agree, but this is hardly worth the 60 dollar price tag, just like with tomb raider. The game is BARELY a year old! Besides, when I was hoping for some Naughty Dog on PS4, I was really hoping for something new. I'm excited to see what Uncharted will be, but I dont care for this remake, Naughty Dog or not I wish they were going to make a new IP These guys brought us Crash Bandicoot, Jak And Daxter, Uncharted and last year's Last of Us Wouldn't you rather want them to do something new with this new hardware?
I commend you to sticking to your guns! | I won't be able to.
The grimreaper. To think that Sonys number one developer isn't doing anything new is rather stupid. Now I need to wipe the jizz off my screen after this trailer.
Can't disagree. Loved TLoU. LOVED it. But I don't feel the need to play through it again, at least not at $60. Maybe if they have some kind of trade-up offer or something. Still a great idea to release a PS4 version though. If you haven't played this game, you owe it to yourself as a gamer to rectify that...
It says Naughty Dog on it (again). Double dip? Yup!
I'll be disappointed if it's not 60FPS..
ND + PS4 = MINDBLOWN
My mind is blown gy how horrible that looked. 1080 60fps wont save it. I know i know its nd and the best game ever made says a sony fan. Buuuuuuut, i didn't buy a ps4 to play ps3. Keep cheering fanboys and the next game will be uncharted 2 remastered.
My mind is blown by how bad your spelling is. You're an awful excuse for a gamer so opinion is void. Stop trying to create a stir, it was a great decision to remaster this game. Being a gamer for the past 20+ years, this game easily ranks in my top 3 favourites. Everyone should have an opportunity to play this and I believe they'll make 60fps pretty easily.
but you didnt buy one?
It will probably fluctuate between 30-60 fps which is fine with me.To get a constant solid 60fps the visuals will have to take a hit,sometimes a few less frames is not even noticeable on slow pans etc,during intense action and explosions the frames will probably be 30-40 but thats still smooth enough.
I'll bet they nail 60fps. 1080p is a big jump, but remember that the other aspects of the graphics won't be too demanding for the PS4. That is unless they are updating other aspects of the graphics from the PS3 version, like fixing the shadow map aliasing. Even then, though, I think the PS4 could crush this game.
Over 200 GOTY awards, dang that's gotta be some record. I never got to play the dlcs so this is great news 4 ppl like me
Uncharted 2 was the most awarded game until TLOU came along & dethroned it. Crazy thing is, both games are made from Naughty Dog. The best devs in the business.
Ehh, Yakuza devs has that title.
Dcfan Yakuza for what?
@ItachiUchiha btw my favorite naruto character lol but sadly Skyrim was the most rewarded game until TLOU :/ according to game of the year awards picks blog
# of awards means nothing since every year new random gaming sites pop up and start giving awards.
And all of these random gaming sites chose The Last of Us over other games,so that means something. Jealous much?
^^^ Not saying it doesn't deserve it. TLOU is in my top 5 of all time. But pure quantity of awards does mean nothing, right? You're saying that the ratio of [TLOU awards]:[other_games awards] is high. See, even you agree with me, that ratio, not pure quantity, is what matters. Actually a better measure would be (# awards received) / (# gaming sites).
Will buy again. I started a new playthrough on my PS3 but I guess I'll wait it out Its been a long while since I've beaten the game so replaying it again in summer will be sort of fresh feeling
Release it at £19.99 and I'm happy i have no doubt off what quality the game is I've completed it enough times and enjoyed the hell outta it enough times. But its the same with all the HD remakes for those that have already played the game all we are getting is polished graphics and DLC added in. Tomb Raider Laras hair moved -_- and the gadgets on her side moved the trees had more leafs and the game was 1080p aye. But still not worth the full price I'd already completed the game on both ps3 and PC. I'm all for these games making reappearances on the next gen platforms but at what point is the line drawn. I want to play these games but at a fair price.
You'll be stuck getting it for £14.99 on PS3, and the DLC alone is costly. Expecting £19.99 is a bit too much. It'll be £30 cheapest close to release.
I know m8 that's more just an ideal point I'd like it at ;). The curse off gaming these days is DLC and what we have to pay after we leave the store. Used to be when you brought your game that was it. Now days you leave the store with an unfinished game. Now this is not a reflection on The Last of us. I'm using the terms on other games today, for me The Last of us is one off a few games that has lived up to the hype. But i just find it hard to go and shovel out full costs on a game i already own. Even though this particular game is a stunner. £35 would be fair. But I'm not in for £50.
If you don't want it, don't buy it.
I never said once i didn't want it. No harm in asking for fair pricing in gaming.
I think its a good thing redoing great games for next gen. Only games people want though. I love to see Gears 3 remaster on x box 1 before the new one comes out.
A friend and I had the same conversation last night. A Gears 3 remake would be much welcomed on XB1. Great minds...
I miss the gears action, all the shooters out there are first person. xb1 needs a gears game, hope i don't have to wait till 2016 or 2017 for it!
Wtf is it with everyone wanting remakes of games they just played a couple years ago or less?!
from that brief teaser the game looks really good, im buying regardless have wanted to play this game for a long time.
Loved the scene they decided to add at the end of the trailer. Beautiful.
if thats in game i dont think i can handle the beauty. didnt play on ps3 and im so happy im gonna get to experience it the way ND probably wanted it to be played . but my mind is taken with this new zombie mmo ,PS2,watchdogs at moment. way to many things coming out on ps4
Yes, that is one of the most iconic parts of the game. You have to play it to understand
Dem graphics look mad smooth in 1080p!!
I will gladly rebuy this masterpiece for my PS4 it's that good. Wow you watching the end clip you wouldn't notice right away the Giraffes have self shadowing i don't recall seeing that on the PS3 version also the draw distance the grass and leafs move with the wind I'm holding off replaying on my PS3 again.
For me that looks blurry if it's from ps4
No way was that PS4 footage, that had to be PS3 footage. They'll show the PS4 version @E3 I guess....
But WHY would they show ps3 footage. It makes no sense.
I thought the same. I'm assuming it wasn't our first PS4 footage - cause the wall looked blurry.
To the kids complaining. Just think of the 360 owners who never played it coming to PS4. This is a win-win for everyone.
There are some screenshots here, hopefully we see gameplay soon cause I can't really tell a difference in these screenshots: http://uk.playstation.com/p...
pretty sure those are just PS3 screens
