The Last of Us PS4 Hardware Bundle Spotted

Amazon France posts product page for the unannounced bundle, said to arrive in July alongside the game.

The often-leaky Amazon France has posted a product page (via CVG) for an unannounced The Last of Us PlayStation 4 bundle that is to include a copy of The Last of Us Remastered, a 500GB black system, and a controller. The listing says the bundle will go on sale July 30 for €429 (~$585).

At E3, Sony announced that The Last of Us Remastered would launch on July 29, though there was no mention of this hardware bundle at the time. For now, though this bundle would seem to make a lot of sense, best to consider this a rumor until we hear directly from Sony about it.

The Last of Us Remastered runs in 1080p, features higher resolution character models, as well as improved shadows and lighting. The bundle also includes DLC, director's commentary, and special interviews with voice actors Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie).

The game was originally expected to sell for $60, but Sony just this weekend announced a $10 price drop, meaning it will now be sold for $50. If you already preordered, you can get a refund.

Wish the PS4 was an interesting colour or something.

That's it? Just a regular PS4 and the game? The game better be free

Cool; I picture this selling well if it is like 400 to 440, if not-- I don't see the point.  Though, the box art is pretty.

I was planning to get this for my PS3 but since I decided to pre-order the white ps4/Destiny bundle now this game goes to my ps4 list:

TLOU

Evil Within

Destiny

The witcher 3

Alien Isolation

Final Fantasy Type Zero

Final Fantasy XV

Kingdom Hearts 3

If they bundled it at $400 I might be interested but im not paying over $30 for a game I already own. In fact they should bundle it at $400 it will generate some console sales among those who have not played the first and don't own the PS4.

If this gen had been backwards-compatible there would be no need to re-release a two year old game in the first place.

How pathetic is this. A next gen console bundle with a last gen game. Then again Sony has no exclusives worth playing on the PS4 anyways.

Im just sick and tired of reading about this sad excuse of a game and the praise it  got everywhere.

The console alone is $ 400 ,yet the console plus the game is $ 585, meaning the game in the bundle costs $ 185 ,WTF ?!

This release is aimed at 360-PS4 converts, and the many PS3 owners that never got around to it for one reason or another. Seriously, if you look at the sales numbers on PS3 you see that there is actually a HUGE potential customer base for a PS4 remastering. 

People saying "I've already played it, why would I buy it again?" - yeah, I think you aren't the target audience. Sorry. If you DO choose to buy it again, they certainly won't stop you. But I doubt you are the target demographic. And given the many many many millions who HAVEN'T played the game yet, this is just fine.

I am holding out for the white console. I don't need bundles, this is 2014, all my games are digital. Discs are obsolete.

Is it me,or every single AAA game coming to the PS4 gets a console bundle?

Can't wait I felt bad for not playing on ps3 and sold my ps3 for a ps4. Now I don't feel as dumb cuz I get to play it with better graphics.

Great game to watch in YouTube. Boring and monotonous to actually play though.

@ghost140 I think it'd have to finally bite the bullet and pick up a PS4 if this did come in at $400. I highly doubt it will though… unfortunately.

While I would like backward compatibility, I wouldn't want to pay more for it on the PS4 and I prefer the remastered option since I haven't played the game yet on my PS3.

@balrogbane


Doing so is working as a major incentive to people like me own a 360 and haven't picked up a PS4 yet.

@Blazen702 Yet when a Master Chief (lolz) collection x.bone bundle is announced, you'll cream your pants over it and say it's a good idea.

That's the USD conversion from euros, my friend.

@elkoldo Everything in Europe is more expensive, so the USD price shouldn't be a concern to you.

@xantufrog  I switched from xbox for a few reasons, I didn't want a "entertainment" center, I already have that with my cable. I wanted a gaming console and that's why I purchased the ps4. I saw the direction they were heading and I liked it, they are all about gamers and that's what I want. So the PS already had that going for them, but mainly because of the exclusives, I was so mad when Uncharted or TLOU never released on xbox so I said screw them and went to the better side. I just hope I will get a chance to play the old uncharted games like I will with TLOU.... hopefully they will remake uncharted games and sell it as a trilogy or something

@sonicblast19 It isn't just you but I would like to ask why it matters?  It's a brilliant idea if the price is right.

@mark5225 This is one of the games I wish I had played. My PS3 got the YLoD, and after fixing it twice, I gave up on trying anymore. Got into PC gaming so it wasn't a priority.

@Sevenizz False. The gameplay is solid, I loved how open ended most situations were. They gave you the choice to go loud or stealth and it was really enjoyable. You should try playing it ;)

Don't worry, just give it another year.

@VegasAceVII @shinjuki Ditto, where have you been shinjuki? This has been out on the PS3. Even if you didn't have a PS3 this is a well known game.

Well, he has a point. It was extremely flawed but got a LOT of praise. I for one despised the beginning of it and honestly the characters were stale.

Have fun playing PS3 games on your crapstation 4. Doubt you ever owned a 360 in the first place.

@phillywarrior @xantufrog There is no way they are going to remaster any of the three uncharted. If you want to play them, you either going to have to buy a PS3 or wait until it's available on PSNow.

You probably never played Halo in your life. Halo replay value is above and beyond TLOU by miles. There's a reason halo series alone outsold every ps3 exclusive combined.

bdrtfm

@Shango4 @Sevenizz  Knock it all you want. At least Halo had replay value. I couldn't finish TLOU once let alone play it again. Other than the fact it looks pretty, what is so good about the game? The game mechanics suck. If I wanted to watch a movie, I'd go to the theatre. I buy games to play them. Not to sit back and watch cut scene after cut scene after cut scene.

@Blazen702  lol when I had a xbox, ive never met so many haters as I did when I switched to playstation. Ppl like you make me realize I made the right choice because you come on a playstation story and hate lol its not my fault you made the wrong choice and now mad. and by the way, not only did I have a 360 since it released, but I also had a X1 but I returned it a week later for a PS4, my xbox live gamer tag is Toe2Toe T..


and if I have a crapstation and its outselling your shitty VCR 2-1, then what do you have???

sanchango

@phillywarrior @Blazen702 you act like there aren't as many haters on sony. There are haters on both sides. Whenever there's an xbox article, sony fanboys hate on it, whenever there's a sony article xbox fanboys are on it. There's an equal amount of hate on both sides. Don't make it sound like sony fanboys don't do a lot of hate compared to xbox.

This is why you get a WIi U ;)

@battlefront1943 @bdrtfm @Shango4 @Sevenizz I did,and I can back up the dude's statement of having 0 replay value,I do replay my xbox games from time to time and I totally replay Nintendo games,Sony games,not so much unless we are talking about third party games like Borderlands or Darksiders but other than that all games play the same,as in there is no other way to play through the game than what you play the first time,hell I suck at the games the second time around ebcause I try too hard to play them in a different way.
