Sony has dropped the price on The Last of Us Remastered for PlayStation 4 from $60 to $50 this weekend.

Fans who pre-ordered the game with retailers like Amazon and Gamestop should have already been refunded the $10 difference, but at first there was some confusion about whether those who bought the game from the PlayStation Store will recieve the same treatment. If you bought the game from the PlayStation Store you’ve probably noticed you haven’t recieved the $10 back yet, and Sony’s policy about pre-orders is stated very clearly in all capital letters on The Last of Us Remastered pre-order page:

“YOU MAY NOT CANCEL A PRE-ORDER AT ANY TIME AND REFUNDS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDERS, SUBJECT TO APPLICABLE LAWS.”

However, both VP of Publisher and Develpoper Relations at PlayStation Adam Boyes and President of Worlwide Studios Shuei Yoshida assured fans via Twitter that they should get a $10 refund in the next five-seven days.

In addition to updated visuals and DLC, The Last of Us Remastered features director's commentary from Neil Druckmann, as well as input from voice actors Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie). It’s set to launch exclusively on PS4 on July 29.

The game is awesome but I will just wait another year until it's free for PS plus members.

Feel like they should do something like they did for BF4 and AC4 where if you bought it on PS3 it's cheaper on PS4. Not that it would stop me buying it if they didn't, loved it on PS3 but didn't really get much chance to play it so will definitely be buying on PS4.

Oh and is this just in the US? Went on Gamestop and it's still £49 which is about £4 more expensive than most PS4 games are

This is nice and while I still intend to pick it up at launch (again); I still feel like they would have far more sales at a 40 dollar price tag.

It is still a tad costly when compared to the PS3 version with DLC, and essentially; it's the same game with a higher frame and slightly improved picture quality.


I don't know one sane person who complained about PS3 Last of Us picture quality, You? So. .


Lest I hear this ReMaster is definitely worth the upgrade I'll hang back till it's as cheap as PS2 collections went for PS3.


Course this is my personal opinion, but $30 is what I'd be willing to pay, any higher & I'll feel like a chump. Just like when I bought Duke Nukem Forever.

<< LINK REMOVED >> $30 is extremely low, IMO. The official game has only been out for a year and with this newly remastered 1080p/60fps, better textures and lighting and all the DLC; I think $50 is much more reasonable now.

<< LINK REMOVED >> & only out a year equals a PS3 game selling at $20.


It's a last generation port, like the game or not.


PS2 games got makeovered and at 60FPS to PS3 for $30, so I highly disagree on $30 being low. Not to mention DLC is basically what older games had in the core game as 'unlocks'.


Keep in mind many of them PS2 games got bundled also, not one stand alone game, some are a trilogy. HD sets like: God of War collection, Silent Hill, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil (Japan only) all launched at $30.

So it will be cheaper than Watchdogs, Second Son and all the other 'AAA' games on PS4 and yet it's far better than any of them. Sounds like a good deal to me.

@NbAlIvEr10000 "not playing" to a third person shooter because it lacked 60fps?


Said no one ever!


This isn't a Platinum games slasher or Street Fighter. 60fps ain't essential in this genre of game.


1080p and 60fps is just the buzz topic for sheep.

Regaurdless of price, this game is one of the best games I've ever played, Remastering it on PS4 only makes it better.

Do remember they had to re render this entire game... ever square inch of it. I'm sure it wasn't "Cheap"

I really think this game should be $40. I mean it came out last year at full price and this is a re-release.

It needs to be $29.99 for those who already own the digital version of TLoU on PS3. Not sure how they would verify it for those owning the disc version but a digital discount seems more plausible anyway. Since they don't need to create any packaging for those copies. Digital versions should ALWAYS be cheaper actually.


But most importantly, why do people pre-order games anymore? The issue of games selling out hasn't been relevant for the past decade. There's absolutely no reason to do this to "secure a copy", especially with a Digital copy which has infinite copies available. I can understand maybe doing it a few days before release now that they introduced pre-loading. But the majority of "Pre-order bonuses" are worthless and are given to everyone eventually. Most of the time they even still give you the pre-order bonuses if you buy the digital version on the day of release or even the disc version days after release.

The only reason I can see to pre-order is to get access to Beta versions of the game. Which is something that Sony should really focus on as it got me to pre-order Destiny. The Alpha was really fun and it made me want to play the Beta while waiting for the retail version.


But other than that? Don't give them your money any sooner than you need to. It just reinforces this idea of withholding more and more content and making it a "pre-order exclusive".

Would have gladly paid $60. Will even more gladly pay $50. This was one of the very few games on PS3 that I enjoyed.
