Late last month, an executive from Sony's Eurasian division let slip that The Last of Us would be coming to PlayStation 4. It was as obvious as the day is long that this executive wasn't mistaken (remember how Gran Turismo 6 leaked?), but Sony was mum on the port. Until now.

After PlayStation Network leaked the game this morning (and after Amazon posted it for pre-order), Sony finally broke its silence.



The Last of Us Remastered is a port of arguably PlayStation 3's best game. The Last of Us on PS4 will run in 1080p, "with a list of upgrades including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements." TLoU Remastered will also include a director's commentary for every in-game cinematic.

Additionally, The Last of Us Remastered comes with DLC, including the Left Behind single-player expansion, the Abandoned Territories multiplayer map pack, and the Reclaimed Territories map pack (more on the latter is promised soon).

Pre-ordering The Last of Us Remastered at a participating brick and mortar retailer, you will get 100 Supply Points for Factions mode, bonus skins for Joel and Ellie, increased crafting and healing speeds in the campaign, and increased reload speed and clip capacity for select weapons. Pre-ordering on the PlayStation Store will net players early access to the Brawler Survival Skill, additional loadout points, and some costume components, all for use in Factions Mode.

If you want to learn more about The Last of Us on PlayStation 3 while you wait for it to arrive on PlayStation 4 this summer, read our review, watch the video review embedded above, and learn about how it won IGN's 2013 Game of the Year.

Cool, I've not got round to playing it on PS3 but looks like it's definitely worth picking up on the PS4!

Loved this game (still haven't completed it either, doh!). So probably won't buy a PS4 version, nice for those who haven't though.

I really want to see a Naughty Dog PS4 game though if I'm honest. Given the number of departures lately I hope they can still deliver.

I've just started playing this today. Not sure it'll be worth paying full price to play on PS4 if you still have a PS3.

Graphics are very impressive for the old PS3, although it does sound like some kind of aircraft is in my living room as the old girl struggles to keep cool under all that work.

Sony mulls The Last of Us PS4 discount for PS3 owners
"We're looking into the business model."

Sony is considering a discount for owners of The Last of Us on PlayStation 3 who also buy the upcoming PlayStation 4 version.


Writing on the EU PlayStation blog, Naughty Dog's Eric Monacelli responded to a fan question regarding a discount for those who had already splashed out on the PS3 game (and perhaps also a season pass) less than a year ago.

"We're looking into the business model for all this and will post about this once we have input from all regions", he explained.

Some fans have criticised Sony's decision to sell the game for full price on PlayStation 4 - £49.99 in the UK - so soon after the release of the initial game.

As well as including all of the game's DLC, the Remastered edition will also include higher resolution character models and textures plus improved shadows and lighting.

A commentary track from creative director Neil Druckmann and lead actors Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson will also be included.

I'd consider getting this if there was an upgrade option at a reasonable price.

It would be nice if they could implement some kind of system to recognise your progress through the game too. For example, I've played through the campaign once on PS3, but haven't gone through for the replay. It would be cool if I could just 'replay' the PS4 version based on my current progress.

I realise I made the same point twice then. I'm tired, and my brain (such as it is) is not working yet. :D

Ive scrapped my preorder now. As my son repeatedly kept saying to me "why am I getting this again over Sniper Elite?". Was a bit silly, but I'm old so I'm allowed the odd mad moment.:crazy:

I've just pre-ordered this from GAME. Had £14.32 reward points to spend, and some money left in my PayPal account from when I sold my PSP so thought I'd treat myself. Never ordered from GAME online before so we shall see how it goes.
