Act Surprised Last of Us Is Coming to PS4

Our favorite game from last year is getting the "remastered" treatment.

One of 2014's worst kept secrets has been The Last of Us coming to PlayStation 4, and now it's official for this summer. Naughty Dog's action thriller was already a technical marvel on PlayStation 3, and it's likely to stun on PS4, as well.

The company has said it's "targeting" 60 frames-per-second with the PS4 version. Naughty Dog is also aiming for "higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements."

The news comes courtesy of the PlayStation Blog, and while we don't have any screens or video yet. But we do know it will come with the Left Behind single player expansion, and both Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories multiplayer add-ons.

Almost wish I waited.

Might play it again.

I really liked this game, but not enough to drop another $60 for a better version. So, hopefully it won't be $60?

Glad I waited, now give me god of war 3 remastered.

will play it again!

I don't know if I can do it again, but I'm still glad it's happening. Hopefully there's more stuff like the developer commentary to make sure it's fresh for everybody who played it already, and hopefully that's stuff's available out of the box.

It's $60.

I'll maybe pick this up again if I ever get a ps4 in the future, the original game looked really really good even for a console game

Just kidding, yes I can.

I thought I saw that somewhere. Oh well!

i thought this was a navarro headline for sure. he's rubbing off on you, patrick

I only played about an hour of it on my PS3, was enjoying it but put it down and never went back. It's dumb and lazy and wasteful but I'll probably end up picking this up for the PS4 and actually play it this time.

When you talk about 200+ awards, you kind of have to wonder what the cutoff is for what they count as a proper GOTY award and what's 'some dude liked it on his end of year blog'.

Great, glad I managed to avoid the GoTY talk.

Naughty Dog deserves every bit of my money that I can give, looking forward to picking this up again.

The game looked amazing for a PS3 title. I'd love to see what "higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures" look like.

Will pick this one up. The game looked pretty good for a PS3 game but really you could still see the rough edges (the shadow resolution was down right poor). Will be nice to play though it at 60 frames 1080.

Isn't this old news? Anyway, I don't have a PS4, and even if I did I couldn't justify paying another $60 for a re-release of a less than a year old game that has virtually no replay value whatsoever.

Posted by Anund

I never finished it on the PS3, even though I really liked it. This sounds like a great time to rectify that.

Better not be censored again.

Oh the memories. I remember this game like it was last year.

Edited by R3belD0gg

I pretty much never replay games, but I've played through TLOU three times (DLC as well.) I could definitely see myself doing this game again, maybe once or twice a year like going back to a favorite movie. I wouldn't mind paying a full $60, but I want more than just a slightly prettier version with a higher frame rate. I never played the Tomb Raider remaster, but I heard good things. If they do something along those lines (like improving character models, particle effects, and dear god the friendly AI) along with the standard lighting and better textures, they can have my money.

I'll probably get this eventually but most likely not on release day. I played through the Last of Us four times last year.

Posted by TheManWithNoPlan

All right! I'll definitely play it again.

Edited by SomeJerk

With the PS3 version being $55 with the pay DLC counted in this is a pretty great deal and the people who cry about it should turn in their gamer cards.

@alecofthewest: Some Sony guy from Turkey(?) said they were doing this a few weeks ago, but Sony didn't confirm it until now.

Edited by Hadoken

I'd hit that

Glad I didn't buy it on Playstation 3.


Edited by ChrisHarris

Thanks for giving my brain more evidence that procrastination pays off.

Posted by thatdutchguy

It must have something extra if i have to buy it again.

Posted by Tblockkiller

I am surprised alright at the full price

Posted by TheHBK

If it is not 60 fps, 1080p, 4xFXAA then the PS4 SUCKS!!!!

Posted by AV_Gamer

Great! I was afraid I'd have to get a PS3 to play one of the best games of 2013. Now they need to do the same to the Uncharted games, the GOW games, and the FFXIII games.

Was it a technical marvel on PS3? It looked good for the system sure, but I don't think it was much of an improvement over Naughty Dog's previous efforts and boy did it chug at times. It had great design but the graphics were definitely rough around the edges.

Not sure why people are complaining, ACIV is $60 and is nothing more than a slightly better looking version of the PS3 and 360 games, you can say that for a lot of the cross gen titles right now, one exception being Battlefield 4. At least Last of Us is compelling and felt quite fresh, can't say the same for AC games of the last 4 years.

I think all exclusive games from very late in a console's life should get pushed to the new systems.


Those feathers next to the award subtitle look too much like parentheses, which makes me laugh.

Otherwise, very excited to finish this game. My PS3 save was bugged and I just couldn't go back.

Tomb Raider Definitive Edition was worth $30 in a flash sale. If there's a way to prove you already bought the game maybe they'll introduce some kind of upgrade voucher once they've settled on an actual release date. I bought it digitally so they could just check it against my account.

This is coming out a year after the original game. Even with all the DLC included, I don't think it should be $60, nor should Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition have been $60.

Well it's a high quality 'blockbuster' game and if they do a good job porting it, it's gonna look better than most games out on the PS4. I think it's fine. I'd rather pay $60 again for Last of Us than ever play Infamous again.

A year old or not, there's not exactly a lot else to play on the system is there? And many people will have missed it because it was an exclusive, Microsoft lost a lot of Xbox people to the PS4.

Cool, now I can not play it on PS4 too!

Posted by Lotan

Nice, I wanted to play this but my ps3 died right as it came out. I got a ps4 instead of a new ps3 so I can't wait.

*monocle pop*

Edited by NTM

Whaaaaaat? No, really? Good enough? :P Anyways, I'm excited for it even though I've already beaten it a few times on PS3; I want it.

Posted by Strife777

Oh please! That must be another one of those damned rumors....

Wait, WHHHHAAT!? It is real you say?! Preposterous.

Posted by Sergio

I haven't finished my PS3 copy, but I can't justify paying another $60 just to have it look better.

Edited by Seppli

I love the game on PS3. Won't pay full price for the PS4 version, but eventually I will grab it. Either on a digital sale, or at launch, if the price is right.

Multiplayer was so damned ugly in comparison to the main game. Looking forward to how that's going to shape up, because I love it, and played the shit out of it, and would love to play more of it.

Oh, and I haven't played the DLC yet, so that's great.

Posted by JeanLuc

If the graphics really do look better I'll pay the $60 to play it again.

Glad I didn't buy the season pass.

Borrowed the PS3 version from a friend last week. Despite it being 20 hours long I managed to power through it in 2 sittings. This does not happen. I was going to pick up my own copy because it's honestly one of the best games I've ever played. Glad I hesitated though because now I'll finally have something to show off my shiny new PS4 with.

Funny story though, I was playing it last weekend and my wife came in and asked me what I was watching. I showed her it was a game and that I was actually controlling it and her draw actually dropped. :D

Posted by ComradeCrash

Never played but just watched and I think I will pick this up!
