Is The Last of Us Remake Worth $70?

Brian Altano offers cogent reasons for The Last of Us remake not being worth the asking price.

PaleMoonDeath762d ago

If it also has the dope multiplayer the original had with all the graphical and gameplay enchancements, then it's arguable that it's worth while at full price, spent like 300 hours in the original games MP! something had to fill that MGO gap!

Kubark762d ago (Edited 762d ago )

Sadly, the factions MP isn't included. A real shame because factions MP with the new mechanics and visuals would've been so much fun. ND are doing a stand alone MP that won't arrive until 2023. :(

PaleMoonDeath762d ago

... I'll wait for it to be half price or something then, I mean, it's not like we've not already played it! guess this is more or less for the new folks, still a stupid price if they've cut out the dope ass MP the original had!

Isn’t this the same person excited for Resident Evil 4 which has been released on GC, PS2, PC, Wii, PS360, PS4/XBO, Oculus VR, and now PS5/SX primarily featuring a graphics upgrade with tweaks to gameplay…..Just like the Last of Us.

Brian you had one too many beers at the zoo.

BrockEmSockEm761d ago

I played the shit outta factions, it was a breath of fresh air instead of cod and shit

@ABizzel1

Resident evil 4 released in 2005 i believe originally on gamecube and then ps2. Then we get the wii edition which is a port with wii controls. Then xbox 360 and ps3 is an HD port. And then it was remastered on Xbox one and ps3.

Throughout these releases it was never ever charged full price despite the remaster and gameplay adjustment.

The series x ps5 release is an actual remake. All new assets. All next gen. That's why I'm excited and many others to play it after originally playing on gamecube.

Last of us came out in 2013. Almost10 years after resident evil 4. The remake of resident evil 4 will be far more noticeable in terms of differences than last of us. Last of us remake is too soon. Same goes for dead space.

PaleMoonDeath761d ago

Eay there chief! @ABizzel1

I'm a horror guy if you couldn't tell by my profile pic, Resident Evil 4 is a superior game/series imo! and hell yes I am excited for RE4R! I don't know anyone who isn't honestly, The Last of Us 1's multiplayer is the steal, especially if you know the story already, like I said I've had 300+ hours into the MP, charging a price like they are? boy they better be adding MP or it's waiting till it's half price that's for sure!

Otherwise, those who haven't played it are in for a treat, I'm just not sold on a single player only title that originally had one of the greatest MP's ever made, only for it to be cut. Savvy

BlackTar187761d ago

They didn't say it would arrive in 2023 they said they'll have something to show you in 2023. ND are busters for releasing this again for the third time and only giving a concept at of factions2 after 2 yrs.

Unfortunately no MP at all.

Also, MGO was amazing. I played it in MGS3 and MGS4 and there was nothing quite like it. Loved it, except for the dumb Konami log in stuff.

PaleMoonDeath762d ago

Infamously stupid log in crap.. I remember it well! I remember the hype for Survival Wednesdays too! when those servers were finally shut the closest to MGO I could get was TLOU which was brutally tactical like MGO!

Glory days, I'd deadass buy MGO again if I could! shame I don't have the cash to do the weird hack to play it online nowadays haha!

neutralgamer1992761d ago

It's all subjective for me it's not worth full price but so much of it depends on how great the remake is

Been telling people get used to $69.99 as soon as possible because that's exactly where we are heading

MontyeKristo761d ago (Edited 761d ago )

Very few games I'll purchase at $70. There were very few that I would purchase at $60.. I can wait for price drops or buying 3rd party.

MadLad761d ago

Only a very small few have tried for $70. The only way it gets normalized is if people support the small few trying to make it a thing.

neutralgamer1992760d ago

I hope y'all are right but when the biggest publishers start charging $70 I think it will be accepted just like micro transactions

I rarely buy games at launch so either way I like waiting 6-12 months because by than the game gets all the necessary patches from gamers feedback and a much better price

ConsoleAgnostic761d ago

@ABizzel1 Resident Evil 4 is way older, and will benefit from the remake. I also guarantee it will not cost $70. I love The Last of Us...I played the last remaster...but to ask $70 is insane.

MADGameR761d ago

It will NOT include the multiplayer. Which is why it will also be on PC.

MadLad761d ago

Multiplayer really has nothing to do with it lol
Sony just wants money.

The Wood761d ago

Nope. Thats a cash grab no matter how much effort was put into it.

Will the Dead Space remake be worth 70? Will the RE4 remake be worth it? Might as well make an article like this for all the remakes, because they're all going to be 70 bucks, buddy.

SullysCigar762d ago

The correct answer in all these cases is: I dunno, I haven't played it yet! Also, it will vary from person to person.

But that kind of logic won't get you clicks..

Honestly, this has already been discussed to death at this point and there's nothing left to wring from the subject until we get more info.

Dead horse topic.

Obscure_Observer761d ago

"But, they'll still be 70 bucks. On PS and Xbox. That's the point. How come only TLOU is getting singled out. The age isn't what people are bitching about, it's the price."

And where exactly did you got the confirmation that Dead Space remake and RE4 remake will also be priced at $70? There´s no pre order available on both Xbox and Playstation stores. I think you just made that up on a pathetic attempt to try and justify/defend ND´s nickel and dime bs.

R4 is expect to cost £39.99/$49.99 just like R2 and R3 Remakes. £49.99/$59.99 Max!

"And you trying to act like Naughty Dog doesn't deliver is what's mind boggling."

Deliver? It´s pretty much confirmed that Factions was stripped from that game! Gamers will be paying more for less, and you call it "deliver"? Gimme a F* Break!

"Trying to act like Dead Space is such an old ass game compared to TLOU is a damn joke too. You keep me laughing with your bullshit, Obscure."

I´m not defending Dead Space. It´s an EA game after all, what I found funny is people like you that is willing to go down as far as and fabricate facts to defend scumbag practices from ND.

Dead Space will get their fair share of criticism once the price and content is revealed. So far there´s nothing official. So you can´t stop with your made up bs.

@Obscure
Really... when i read your comments i lose the will to be a gamer. Because so much hatred for a company (Sony and all the related ones) and so much love for another one is beyond my comprehension. If this was a MS game and not even on GP, you'd praise their job anyway and justify everything even if it was $90.

Obscure_Observer762d ago

"Will the Dead Space remake be worth 70? Will the RE4 remake be worth it?"

None of those games that you´d mentioned are only 9 years old, been re-released for the third time, while missing features from the original.

It´s hard to believe in this "build from ground up" PR talk, when there´s no new and bigger environments, the game looks exactly the same with some prettier foliage and textures from Last of Us Part II. Even the camera angles and facial animations are the same with some refinements here and there.

All there´s left to see is how the gameplay itself evolved. IA, combat, stealth mechanics etc.

It´s mind boggling how ND managed to make this remake "from the ground up" this fast when Factions from Tlou 2 that should be released day one within the game, have nothing but a concept art to show us after 2 years!

This is nothing more than another dirty money grab practice from ND.

Silly gameAr762d ago (Edited 762d ago )

But, they'll still be 70 bucks. On PS and Xbox. That's the point. How come only TLOU is getting singled out. The age isn't what people are bitching about, it's the price. And what do you mean fast? News about the remake was leaked at least 2 years ago.

And you trying to act like Naughty Dog doesn't deliver is what's mind boggling. Save that concern for companies that have bugs with every damn one of their games they release.

Money grab. What a damn joke. If you don't want it don't buy it. No one is grabbing money that you're not holding out.
Trying to act like Dead Space is such an old ass game compared to TLOU is a damn joke too. You keep me laughing with your bullshit, Obscure.

Resident evil 4 yes originally released 17 years ago. But has had so many re-release.

Released on PS2 and GameCube originally. Then PC (twice) then got. HD port on PS3/360 and Wii. Then it got a mobile port. Then a PS4 and Xbox One and Switch release and finally VR version for Quest 2.

Switch was missing motion control features the Wii had. VR version was missing a few things.

tay8701761d ago

clearly someone is a hater. i already bought it twice and will be getting the platinum for the 3rd time this yr. greatest game i have ever played, i personally cant wait for this. 3 of my favorite games are getting remakes in the next yr and damn sure i will buying all 3. last of us, FF7 and RE4. damn almost forgot about dead space as well. never got around to k.o.t.o.r. so i will be buying that as well.

Chevalier761d ago

Only thing mind boggling is that you think you can speak for Naughty Dog development when you're clearly not a developer. Also it's idiotic you think you know the 'value' of this game when 'value' is subjective.

For example I don't think the Series X is
