Since the embargo has just ended for Naughty Dog’s masterpiece, and all journalistic doors opened, it’s time to share our take on how the Remastered version of The Last of Us will affect Sony’s next-gen console, PlayStation 4. We are aware that some of you are not so fond of this re-release, and to a certain extent we agree with you. The majority of those who are not welcoming this title are current PlayStation 3 owners who already enjoyed the game, and taking in account the fact that The Last of Us is a story-driven game, why would you replay it? Maybe just for the sake of enhanced graphics and double the amount of FPS, if you are into those.
But for the rest of the folks who embraced Xbox 360 in the last generation of consoles, and never touched a PlayStation 3, this is the perfect opportunity to try a truly immersive game on the brand new PlayStation 4. Of course, assuming you already bought one or you plan to in the future.
When a newer generation of consoles is introduced, the main issue is the lack of games. To be more precise, the lack of good games, worth both your time and your sixty bucks. This generation is no stranger of this problem, as both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are in a gaming wasteland. In this kind of times, the re-release of certain important titles are a common thing, whether you like it or not.
Naughty Dog has managed to find the perfect moment when to release one of their best games. The Last of Us is exactly what the console needed to attract customers, and we can assure you that TLOU is a title hard to forget after you actually play it. The game’s price tag is a real issue for some, but if you do note everything that game has to offer you’ll likely find it a bargain, rather than a rip-off.
If you do manage to get past the price tag, you’re in for a treat. The Last of Us Remastered is everything the original game was, and even more. The beautifully tailored story is now portrayed in an even more detailed environment. With the enhancements that the developer made, the game has been taken to the next level, one worthy of next-gen.
But how will it help PlayStation 4 in the ongoing battle with the competition? Well, who could pass on a masterpiece when there’s only sixty bucks between you and it. Throw that into a sexy bundle, and you’ll boost PlayStation 4’s sales like a mad men.
