How Relevant Is Photo Mode In The Last Of Us Remastered?

Naughty Dog has announced photo mode a brand new addition coming to PS4's version of the worldwide successful game. The Last Of Us Remastered Photo mode will allow players to capture the gorgeous post apocalyptic in-game environments to share with friends, but is this feature really relevant? Or is Photo mode enough of an additional extra to sway you to buy TLOUR again on PlayStation 4 this July 29th?

I disagree. I think Sony should start giving us new games! Its nearly a year since the PS4 launched and all we get is remastered this remastered that.

Sorry played the last of us before won't be buying this again unless its TLOU Part 2.

Lol Sony hasn't released any "Remastered games"until this week with TLOU.Next time do some research,

fonger081961d ago

@majin-vegeta wait what? I literally holding in my hand God of War Collection "remastered in high definition."

@majin Vageta

Escape plan
Trine 2
Unfinished swan
The last of us
Beyond two souls
Are all remasters

And I'm sure we will see uncharted and gow collections too

It's completely fine that they are getting those games, I'm just pointing out that it's 100% fact that last of us is not the only remastered game unlike what majin Vageta says

@iceman everyone of the games I listed received a resolution or frame rate bump. Example: flower was 720p on ps3 and is 1080p on ps4

You hyperbolers are really annoying. This is the first Remastered game, and it hasn't come out yet. What are you talking about?

New games? The order, Bloodborne, Driveclub, and more unannounced Ips. The console doesn't even have a year released. Give it time you desperate gamer.


Most of those are Indies. It is not that bad... And what if we get Uncharted too? Xbox is getting Halo collection. Why can't We have one of the most successful games of Playstation too?

Edit: The fact that you added DC universe Online and more ports shows that you are just trying to make this worse. They aren't remasters. They are just ports.

@All need to learn the difference between remaster and port.

XiSasukeUchiha1961d ago

@All consoles

I wondered how you didn't the difference between remastered and a port?

Prime1571961d ago (Edited 1961d ago )

Guess what... this is a new console's "dead season." Meaning there are usually very few games released in it's first year... in fact, the ps4 released with the most playable games at launch (by a lot compared to previous generations) AND has kept up that trend.

Even with exclusives, but having a diverse portfolio is better in the first year.

You can argue what a port or remaster is to you, but it's still another PLAYABLE GAME on a GAMING CONSOLE. Especially compared to its immediate competition. In fact, 32, more games to choose from last time I checked... probably more now.

So yes, remasters/ports have been played, but many skipped them in the ps3 generation, so why not port those over for the new adaptors, sure as hell doesn't hurt.

Edit: and about the last of us... 200+ GOTY awards and only sold about 7million in it's first month on a console install base of ~80 million?

Yeah, warrants a remaster the next year for the many millions who missed out...

there's a difference between remastered and port you know, besides most of those games don't belong to Sony therefore it's not Sony who "give us" those "remastered version" on next-gen.

let me guess, but you praise the crap out of the new HALO for the right????

charliewong9801961d ago

I would say no since PS4 does have screen share, but I was going to buy this game again anyway just to play it on PS4.

ape0071961d ago

photo mode should be implemented in every game imo

Frankskint1961d ago

But the PlayStation 4 already has image capture and share? I think this is just Naughty Dogs way of grabbing new fans to the last of us remastered game. I get bored of after playing games once so most likely will give this a miss, unless its on discount on PSN

ape0071961d ago (Edited 1961d ago )

yep the share button is already great but with photo mode + share button, magic can happen, like infamous SS

DoomeDx1961d ago

You do know that Photo mode allows you to move around the camera freely right?

I hate it when people say ''Whats the point? PS4 already has a Share Button''

Photo mode and Screenshots are a big difference.

Prime1571961d ago

If you want to compare Apple's to oranges like your comment suggests then Apples = taking screenshots in assassin's creed 4... and oranges= screenshots on infamous second son with photo mode.

If you've tried taking screenshots on both you will understand.

styferion1961d ago

nope, plain ol' screenshot is different from photo mode, where we can stop the game and move the camera freely to take screenshots from various angles.

LordMaim1961d ago

The Share button gives you the image that you see on screen.

Photo Mode stops the action, and gives you a camera that you can position in three dimensions, change orientation and angle, change focal length, add filters to give special effects, and zoom in on the smallest details or zoom out to capture the entire scene. Its quite a bit more robust than a simple screenshot.

I was going to say the same thing. I really liked the Photo mode in Infamous second son. My friends and I would share some pretty awesome images. Looking forward to this on TLOUR.

marioJP871961d ago

I think this is a feature every game should have.
