The Last of Us: Remastered Coming to PlayStation 4

Joel and Ellie are headed for the PlayStation 4.

An ad on the official Sony Entertainment Network PlayStation Store makes it official. The Last of Us: Remastered is coming soon to Sony’s next gen console. See for yourself:

Clicking the banner leads to a “Page not found” error, and Sony has yet to make a formal announcement, so evidently someone made a mistake. However, in a Turkish CNN interview nearly two weeks ago, PlayStation’s Eurasian Software Market Manager Sercan Sulun stated that The Last of Us would hit PS4 sometime this summer, so it’s clear Sony wasn’t too intent on keeping this thing under wraps.

We’re expecting the formal announcement with details from Sony soon and will update this post with the new info.

It seems rather early for games from last generation to be popping up again like all the various HD Collections, but I suppose the success of those makes it rather tempting to get that ball rolling for this generation right away.

Agreed with RJ, I have no problem with remastered games when the passage of time or the generational leap in technology means there’s some tangible value for a rerelease, but this game only came out less than a year ago. On one hand you could say it makes sense to do a remaster now as there could be a lot of people who were considering buying it but didn’t get around to it or held off because they wanted to invest in PS4, and they might be more inclined to play the game now it’s on the newer platform. Plus, the lack of backwards compatibility means it’s obsolete if you don’t want to be using both consoles simultaneously. On the other hand, it seems a bit needless and exploitative. There isn’t anything really to update about the game other than the graphics, which are already pretty good on PS3. Overall, I’d rather see the time spent on new games, but I guess I can’t really blame Sony for taking advantage of what is clearly a popular market right now.

Now, the proposed Mass Effect trilogy rerelease? That’s another story. Absolutely worthless idea.
