Sony today announced on the European PlayStation Blog that the rumored Last of Us PlayStation 4 bundle is indeed real, and will presumably launch alongside the game next month. The €429.99 ($585) bundle includes a copy of The Last of Us Remastered, a 500GB PlayStation 4, and a DualShock 4 controller.

There's no word on if this bundle is coming to the United States.

The Last of Us Remastered, an updated version of Naughty Dog's 2013 acclaimed PlayStation 3 game, launches July 29. It runs in 1080p, features higher resolution character models, as well as improved shadows and lighting. [You can watch a graphics comparison here.] 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 recently announced a $10 price drop, meaning it will now be sold for $50. If you already preordered, you can get a refund.

Some of the weather effects are stunning. i cant wait to see what they have done with last of us.am sure its worth the wait guys.

The PAL region lucks out again with a wonderful PS4 bundle. A decent pack in game. A goty version of the Last of US. For the people who didn't catch it in 2013 on PS3. With improved graphical look the selling point. No sure if that is a huge gain for this version of the game. But at least it is a reason for Sony to promote this game once more.

This bundle would have really rocked if Sony had managed to sell it for $400.00, but Sony has to recoup the development costs of the Playstation 4 console and their first party game "the Last of US" which is good, but not great.

So a remastered version could help them make a better profit.

people who don't seem to understand why this is being remastered it is because sony knows full well people new to sony (360 deserters)will most likly buy this game, it was the MUST have game that 360 guys really wanted and are openly gutted to not play it. sony will capitalise on this by making sure thoes people pick the better version and buy a ps4 at the same time. sony also knows it would be much cheaper if people new to sony could buy it secondhand with a second hand console as well (meaning no money for sony) thats why its being done now (not in 2-3 years time) so they retain the money. considering this is probably one of the best games you can play it deserves the being remastered as well.

on the other end MS is releasing halo (there equivalent game) remastered to try and claw back thoes deserters and try to convince people that they still like core gamers, they specifically chose that franchise because they wanna capitalise on nostalgia and is really the only franchise that is consistently good.

I'm a 360 convert that missed out on this game, and I can't wait to pick it up. I was keeping my fingers crossed when it came out for PS3 that Naughty Dog would bring it to PS4, and super pumped they did. I had slim pickings of good exclusives last gen after Mass Effect. They kept trying to shove Halo trash in my face, and Forza/Gears. Thankfully Fallout/The a Elder Scrolls were there, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Dark Souls became multiplat after Demon's Souls.

Adding to that... the Halo Collection is the same as The Last of Us remastered in the sense that they're actually trying to entice Playstation fans over to the Xbox One too. Everyone knows Halo was the killer app for the Xbox, and even if you're a Playstation fanboy, it's a game series you can't deny being envious of (unless you're one of those diehard crazy fanboys that dislike any games that have a PS or MS sticker on it, depending on your console of preference).

It's a pretty smart on Microsoft's part too to include all four games, leading up to the fifth one coming out next year.
When it comes to sequels, a key issue for potential consumers is that they may not have played the prior game(s) in the series and so avoid buying it due to the belief they won't understand the plot. With this collection, it allows newcomers to come over and get all of the games on one disc/download, at one price to catch up.

Hmm, I can see a very bad business practice here. First you release a game with last-gen graphic then sometimes later you re-release the same game with slightly better graphic and charge full price for it. This could set a very bad example for future games. I can already see GTAV following this pattern.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Well, that's pretty much what was happening anyway with old games being remastered in HD and put into collections (MGS Collection, God of War Collection, Jak & Daxter Collection etc). To be honest, I don't see it as a bad thing.
If there's an old game you've never played and wondered what it's like, why not get it in one of these collections?

If however, you mean that companies will release a brand new game in the future on PS3/Xbox 360 and then later on re-release it on PS4/Xbox One, that isn't going to happen. Once new gen consoles come out, last gen consoles support slowly dies, even if the companies openly say they're still going to support it. They virtually mean they'll release games on both gens at the same time, generally with the last-gen versions being watered down and perhaps a few features missing, not vice-versa.

Keep in mind, they want to sell as many new-gen consoles as they can along with new games, so won't get into a business practice where they're shunning new-gen releases in favor of last-gen and then later on remaking them down the line so that people purchase both copies. THAT would truly be the bad business practice in this scenario.

Both The Last of Us and GTA V were released just before the new consoles came out, so it makes a lot more sense that they'd re-release them as soon as possible on the new consoles just to grab both new customers and existing fans who want to see the shinier graphics in.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Uhh, yeah...GTA has already been announced for the PC and the newer consoles...


That said, why would anyone be developing for last gen at this point? Moreover, if they are, I'm sure they're also developing for current gen. There isn't a trend here, it's just a transition period we're still in.

$585 for a PS4 and a older PS3 game? No thanks. If they included a colored PS4, Infamous SS and 30 days free PS+ as well it might have been worth it. I wouldn't get this bundle. My PS3 bundle blew this away. I could a 320GB PS3 Slim, with GT5 XL, Uncharted 3 and CoD:MW2 for $279. Great deal.

I still fail to understand how a game that was released just last year needs a remaster. Same with Metro: Last Light.

I can understand that they want to bring it to the newer system, but why, when we can buy the game for a somewhat lower price, and without the need for buying newer hardware if we don't already have it.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Its a cash grab. plain and simple. You can say that people were 360 and went ps4 this time but that's a lie. They could just as easily play the game on PSNow and it would meet that need. This is just a cash grab.

Because there are some gamers that never play Last of Us and for those who were on Xbox 360, most of them want to PS4 this gen are going to get this remastered. For me, I play it on PS3 but no longer own PS3 console so I'm buying Remastered because I miss a lot of the DLC, still need to finish getting all of my trophies, (thanks to carry-over) and it was a good game. People are also rebuying GTAV but since I play it on 360, I'm buying it for PC. Remember that we all have different taste on what we buy.

Simple, it means more money for the devs. Look at how Tomb Raider worked out. It was considered a failure but the fact that it sold well enough on the PS4 and Xbox One was an added bonus. That's the only reason they're able to go ahead with a sequel.

Unless this comes with a special case or color its not worth it. You could buy everything separately and save money.

If this comes here this is the model I'll get. I don't like the white version and it will clash with my entertainment center. But I wish they would make game specific designs like Microsoft does.

Not to me. It's an incomplete system with missing features and no real system selling games.

Even if this bundle does not Come to the U.S, you can always import it to the States since PS4 is region-lock free.
