Nothing has changed in the PS4 version of TLOU

#1 Posted by charizard1605 (58310 posts) -

"We up-resed textures, we also turned on various graphics features that, on the PS3 we could only afford to turn on here and there in certain spots where it really offered bang for the buck, and in some cases those are turned on across the board now, like the bounce light from the flashlight," they said. "There's better anti-aliasing. Just a host of graphical improvements that bring a lot of crispness and additional quality to the look of the game."

"Our goal with the Remaster was to keep it as a 'true' remaster. Even though we had some ideas, we wanted to really just focus on keeping the same core experience. We dove into a couple things, like the new features with the PS4 controller."

Yeah, guys... that sounds like a very poor excuse to me, if anyone wants to play the original game, it's right there, it exists, it's still being sold, it's barely a year old, it's not even rare to find. With the recent spate of news about this game, The Last of Us on PS4 is increasingly coming off to me as a cynical cash grab made exclusively to pad up the PS4's anemic lineup this year (and maybe to get Naughty Dog familiar with the hardware with a relatively safe project).

Same thing with GTA V, The Last of Us PS4 is a cash grab.

It just doesn't deserve all the attention it is getting. It's just an up-rezzed GOTY edition.

Although I blame that on nothing being available to play now.

Wasn't that already debunked in a different thread?

Not surprising.

wait, what were people expecting besides better graphics?

Well, considering Naughty Dog just said this themselves... I highly doubt it?

TC, then don't buy it moron and move on.

Everyone knows what the remaster means so stop being an idiot just because it's not on your platform fanboy.

What are people expecting in a full price re-release of a game that is just a year old, with copies of the original release widely found just about everywhere?

I don't know.

Cute.

Now if you have a point, try making it again without all the name calling.

They increased the graphics by a little, what did people expect though?

I guess I'm just bitter at how blatant a cash grab this seems to be.

@R3FURBISHED: GTA V is a true remaster with completely different assets. Watch the digital foundry video.

I have high hopes for GTA V PC. supposedly it's going to be taking advantage of AMD's mantle.

#20 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21810 posts) -

How has nothing changed?

replaced every NPC model (not just one), significantly improved shadow detail, improved texture detail, added AA, added AF, added photo mode, and it's 1080/60.

If you have a point with this thread why don't you make it. It's a remaster of a game a year old that includes all the DLC. You are acting if they should have added something else. The PS3 version is only a year old and with DLC would cost 45$.

Again, what is the point of this thread other than to scream, "please don't but TLOU R on PS4"? You have no real argument and you aren't telling anyone anything they don't already know, so why did you make this thread?

Also, do you have a PS4

#22 Edited by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

@Desmonic: You just owned the fanboy OP. The game looks a lot better than the PS3 version and it's 1080p/60fps to boot.

Very pretty, especially on the PS4. The forest screen almost seems like a different game. Still not worth $50 though :P

Okay, so those are supposed to be PS3 vs PS4 screenshots?

lol

Xbox's biggest "game" this year is a bunch of remakes. Dat cash grab

Yes because Halo Collection = TLOU. One is a compilation of every Master Chief game ever created spanning a decade and the other is a single game that was launched last year.

Keep DCing.

Also Sunset OD says hello.

My point is right there in the OP. TLOU is a cash grab on the PS4.

Yes, I have a PS4.

That is clearly worth a full price re-release of a year old game, yes.

Excluding GTA V PC -- more of a "brand new" game. For consoles, even with updated whathaveyou, it's a rerelease. Though I am looking forward to continuing to play GTA V Online.

View them full screen and it becomes very easy to see which is which :P Shame GS compress the photos so much due to viewing size limits.

No you can definitely see the difference. I was just making sure that it wasn't like PR Remaster shots vs ingame remaster. Because then people would have a definite reason to be pissed.

Yeah, TLOU on PS3 has some great art design and detail to the levels, but it looks like ass--jaggies and muddy textures

#31 Edited by ReadingRainbow4 (14473 posts) -

I don't care, it's an amazing game just being made even better with a consistent framerate and increased visuals.

I'll definitely be grabbing it up.

Whoa, GTA V there's an actual difference in PS4 and Xbox One than 360 and PS3. Not only that but There's going to be a PC version too so expect some awesome mods that will make the game even more different.

The Last of Us has literally nothing separating itself from it's PS3 counterpart.

It is a cash grab though there are many people out there that havent played it yet so for them is a great deal. So why not ?

Almost. The 1st and 3rd have the PS4 ones on top, the 2nd has the PS4 on the bottom of the pair.

Yeah, the second one was throwing me off, but I figured it must just be a bad shot, then.

#40 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38216 posts) -

Yeah cos we really needed ANOTHER TLOU thread around here.

The game definitely doesn't deserve a brand new full retail price tag and the changes are all cosmetic. It's only getting a LOT of talk because it's ND and it's TLOU which was already such an insanely hot topic. That and the fact that there's fuck all else going on in the AAA next gen scene lately.

#41 Posted by clyde46 (46634 posts) -

Played it already, having slighter up-rezed tree's and 60FPS is not worth spending £45 on this game again. If you missed out on it last gen, go play this version but if you already bought and finished the PS3 version then its a waste of cash. You already know how the story will pan out, there is no new DLC with this release, nothing new for the story.

Didn't you get milked as an early adopter for something called kinect?

Something that was so pivotal to the system that the bundle needed to be $500 and MS would never take it out?

Label them then, only one of those screenshots looked like it was from the PS4 version and that is only because I saw it on /v/ about 3 hours ago.

Yes, I have a PS4.

So...you are restating your opinion about the game being a cash grab, which you have ALREADY stated in previous threads related to TLOU R on PS4?

lol, so why didn't you just post your previously noted opinion in one of the many other TLOU R threads from other butthurt fanboys like yourself QQing about this game and how they feel so morally damaged by it's existence?

The game is 1080p/60fps increased texture on everything, replaced gameplay models, and includes all DLC for $50, while the year old PS3 version with all the DLC would still cost $45. Don't want it? Already played it? DON'T BUY IT.

This thread was not needed and you should be ashamed for making it with all the other TLOU bashing threads already on the board just to restate your biased fanboy opinion on a game you already ranted on in other threads.

Like I said, open them in full screen and it becomes obvious which is which. Not exactly my fault they get badly compressed here. Where I got them it was pretty easy to spot even at a smaller size.

Right then, from what I've seen the PS4 shots have better floor textures and more foliage. Totally worth £45.

#48 Posted by PyratRum (561 posts) -

I don't understand the point of this thread and others bashing HD re-releases/remasters.

These re-releases are for:
A. People who haven't played the game/don't own a PS3
B. People who want a game they enjoyed with better graphics on a more capable platform.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. Simple as that. Stop the unnecessary bitching.

Already stated my displeasure about Kinect and it doesn't qualify as milking by the way.

Keep stating the same tired post though.
