I am looking forward to this game. I cant wait to play in 1080p 60fps I am just a little upset about the censorship for the UK version.

Prime1571557d ago

Wow, those screen shots have me all giddy.. AGAIN. I never thought I'd be this excited for a remaster.

thorstein1557d ago

Can you import? Are the games region locked?

Bathyj1557d ago

Wasnt it just no dismemberment in the MP. The single player is uncensored.

Is the rest of Europe still getting flogged the horrible German versions? I was hoping this wouldn't be the case, might just log in on my US account and buy it digitally that way.

I miss the days when Germany would get their censored versions and the rest of Europe would get the uncensored versions.

This seems to be a trend that's only happened in the last 2 years or so. Or at least, my most recent memories of this happening are TLOU and South Park.

It would seem that gone are the days of comparisons that show you eating hearts in the EU/US copy of The Darkness, juxtaposed to "sucking out their souls" in the German version.

Guess I better get used to the fact that PEGI are being incredibly lazy at their job these days and just reviewing games to the German governments standards.

I completely forgot Germany ran the EU, thanks for reminding me PEGI.

@bathyj Yup its just the MP but it's disappointing to lose that visual impact of taking down someone on the enemy team.

TLOU's MP is very slow and methodical, brutal in a lot of ways, getting a kill in that game is unrivalled I think compared to most competitive MP games, having a bit of gore to go with taht would be a nice lil reward I think :)

Personally it won't effect me that much, I usually only play MP for a week before getting bored, but I know some MP freaks that will be pretty ticked off if they get screwed out of their dismemberment kills again.

Well, one.

I know one guy who happened to own a ps3 last year.

I know about 50 other people though, who at that time, WISHED they owned a ps3.

The Last of Us is THAT good :)

regardless of the whole graphical improvement..

I just really want to spam my facebook with PS4 share videos of TLOU to piss off my non-gamer friends...

and I couldn't do that on PS3...

that's my main reason for getting it..

assdan1556d ago

Yeah. I'm very excited to play it. Although I don't quite get why you'd want to lock the framerate at 30fps.

rodiabloalmeida1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

Feels the same as playing any game on PC with recommended hardware. It has been like this for ages.

Catoplepas1557d ago

That's odd, because my PC can't seem to play much of anything.

Software_Lover1557d ago

That's why he spoke about proper hardware

Catoplepas1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

No he didn't. He edited that in post reply.

TheDevKit1557d ago

So go buy a better graphics card.

WeAreLegion1557d ago

He would also probably need a better CPU, more/faster RAM, a completely new motherboard, and a bigger power supply. Maybe more powerful fans, too.

blitz06231557d ago

This game coming out on PC? No? Get out then, no need to bring elitism on a console exclusive

rodiabloalmeida1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )


In my country, a PS4 costs double the price of a decent PC. How elitist is that, huh? Oh, and I have a PS3, so no need for a expensive PS4 for me.

The elitist here are the PS4 peasants who's always get butthurt when someone says the word "PC" as if we were superior in any way. It's ridiculous the amount of fanboys in here and the reaction of those who think PC gamers think they are in a higher ground. I prefer to use my PS3 to play, FYI.

ITPython1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

@rodiabloalmeida - The PS4 costs twice as much as a decent PC in your country? LOL.

By the time you buy an OS and a HDD, it's already more than half the price of a PS4. Add in a case, blu ray drive, power supply, RAM and motherboard and you are already well over $400. Add in a CPU and GPU that would match the PS4's strength on paper (minus the PS4's optimizations) plus any other little things (like fans, cables etc) and you are easily over $800.

So unless a PS4 in your country costs $1600, you are just a trolling PC elitist.

kingduqc1556d ago

my mom's pc is faster the ps4 so you just need to buy something that isn't from 2001

wow so tlou feels like world of warcraft? i had no idea!

SteamPowered1557d ago

Its kind of an unwritten rule not to bring up Pc in a console article and vice versa. No need to rile up the N4G locals.

WeAreLegion1557d ago

Yeah. Always a bad move. Especially on certain subreddits.

harrisk9541557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

"Feels the same as playing any game on PC with recommended hardware. It has been like this for ages."

Really? Do you plan to play TLOU on PC? Oh, right, you can't.

SteamPowered1557d ago

It would be sweet if you could though...

Haki11121557d ago

He's talking about playing at 60/1080p you clown

rodiabloalmeida1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

I have a PS3, so I can play TLoU as much as I want, even if its [email protected] It's still a great game. No need to ps4 for me.

Edsword1557d ago

Oh TLOU was released on PC? I missed that.

KinjoTakemura1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )


PC will never have The Last Of Us Remastered.

Imalwaysright1557d ago

With these consoles having x86 architecture, I wouldn't be so sure about that.

TardcoreGamer1556d ago

In five years or so PCs may have PS4 and Xbone emulators. Ps4 and x1 do use the same x86 architecture after all. As funny as it might sound, in theory it would be far easier to emulate a ps4 than a ps3. Just sayin.

PX541556d ago

@Imalwaysright & @TardcoreGamer
I think he means officially. Playstation exclusives don't tend to get released on PC.
I don't think he means that there's no possibility for it to be released, just that it probably won't happen.

garrettbobbyferguson1556d ago

I don't think many people would care. Tomb Raider is close enough.

Corpser1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

If there were a PC version we would already have a 1080p/60fps version last year and not have to wait for this one, last gen consoles have been holding back gaming for way too long

This version is what the game should have looked like in the first place but we got a gimped version ladt year because it has to run on 2006 hardware

ShinMaster1557d ago

Higher resolution and frame rate don't push gaming forward.

LogicStomper1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )


What does PS4/XB1 achieve then?

tee_bag2421556d ago

@ Shinmaster

Lol guess that makes this game a waste of time by your profound logic. Good one brainiac.

PX541556d ago

Visuals don't hold back gaming. Lazy developers and gullible consumers hold back gaming.

If the developer wanted they could simply only create for PC to give you the 'best' visuals.
If gullible consumers stopped purchasing the same game over and over simply because it 'looks' better than the previous version then the developers would have to come up with something new. And i'm not just talking about remastered versions of games, i'm talking about most so called 'AAA' games which are just the same thing year in year out repackaged with "newer and better" visuals (e.g. most FPS games).

Console visuals don't hold back gaming since developers, if they wanted, could produce something with looks like any CGI in a film and release it. Games are about gameplay - that should be the major factor in deciding if something is worth purchasing.

My PC can't seem to play The Last Of Us. Maybe i'm doing something wrong?

uth111557d ago

yes, go to newegg, buy at least $800 worth of upgrades, then try again :)

SilentNegotiator1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

What is it with touchy elitists on N4G lately? Why not use your amazing PC to play some game instead of crying every time console specs, framerates, or resolutions get mentioned?

sGIBMBR1557d ago

I was thinking the exact same thing.

rodiabloalmeida1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

Clogmaster1557d ago

Playing the Last of Us in 1080p/60fps is completely independent from anything related to the PC because the game isn't on there.

There was no need to bring up PC at all in this topic.

SilentNegotiator1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

Someone's butthurt alright. No one can even talk about 1080p60fps on PS4 without you and other fanboys crying about how your PC could already do it. This article has absolutely everything to do with consoles and nothing to do with PC, yet you felt the need to bring it up.

user56695101556d ago

Nope it has more to do with PS elitist coming into PC articles and bashing PC gamers like they do everybody and constantly contradicting themselves. Like he said 60 fps isn't nothing new and before this remastered version got announced every PS fanboy said it wasn't needed and said they wouldnt want tlou and UC at this frame rate because it would mess up the cinematic feel of the game.

PS fanboys are the worst and you could tell how deep Sony balls is down they throat

LogicStomper1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Because our PC's can do more than just play games. It can browse the internet, go on N4g, comment,skype,play music and,play a game all simultaneously and efficiently.

Edit: All typed up before I even respawn. How efficient.

Codey471556d ago

And when Crytek go boom and dissipates like a silent fart, in the night.

You won't have many after Crytek as dedicated to PC "Graphics" as they were.

Dota 2 players 736,209
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players 47,321
Team Fortress 2 players 30,506
Unturned current players 23,024

The figures hardly differ at weekends either.
quite obvious the MMORPG sector dominates and is the only genre to keep it alive.
No wonder GabeN wants a piece of the console pie..According to those stats I'm starting to see why.

WoW, Guild Wars and the likes of...The majority of their users are social misfits that have very little grasp on reality.
I can't stand RTS' and MMORPG's and yet another fuckin' flight simulator. The main reason why I gave up PC Gaming.

Roll on Half Life 3...the only game that'll make me build yet another Enthusiast rig. Then after'll become a 3k instant messenger.

Out of curiosity, just what does qualify as recommended hardware for pc gaming.

8gb of ram?
GFX card with GDDR5?
Up to date mobo with fast pci?
Large HDD?
Decent antvirus?
Multithread/hpyperthread capable CPU?
Robust power supply?

Can you just walk in and buy a desktop pc for $1200 at best buy and call it a day?

Or is that not enough?
Inquiring minds want to know!


Really... I didn't know the PC was optimized to play PS4 software. I guess you learn something new every day. lol

Gateway MT6706 2008

Consoldtobots1556d ago

why would you EVER buy a PC at best buy??

talk about being overcharged

I went to microcenter, spent $1500 and built a machine with an i7-4890K, 32GB of PC2100 RAM, GTX780, gygabyte X79-UP4 motherboard and this beast RUNS CIRCLES around my $8,000 BoXx workstation in the office with it's $4,000 Quadro K6000.

PC gaming is affordable you just can't be dumb about and buy into any marketing.

thorstein1557d ago (Edited 1557d ago )

Oh? So how is the PC version of the Last of Us?

How about GTA V? Infamous Second Son?

Put those in your harddrive and see if your PC can run them?

Clunkyd1557d ago

"The Last Of Us 1080p 60fps"

I don't see a PC running The Last Of Us.

God, you PC elitists are so insecure lol
You guys are so desperate for attention.

nucky641557d ago

really? so, playing remastered TLOU on ps4 is the same as pc....hmmmmmmmmm

Akarogg 1557d ago

Now Ps4 fanboys knows how it feels like for Xbox One owners having to take so much crap. Tasting your own medicine isn't so pleasant is it.

Bathyj1557d ago

God, the irony.

Im pretty sure Playstation owners know what it is to take crap. Its Xbox owners that are tasting their own medicine this gen.

I dont know how someone could not know that. Unless youre new here.


Akarogg 1556d ago

Irony indeed. PC master race.

Consoldtobots1556d ago

only idiots turn this into a us vs them mentality

I have a PS4,PS3 and a monster gaming PC and LOVE THEM ALL.

these arguments are for silly children.

You can change the frame from 60 to 30?!! cool option.

it's not remastered i bet... the original was just scaled down

False, it would be a launch title if so.
