I've got mine thru Best Buy and see if they follow suit. Seems when one retailer throws in some credit, discount or some extra bonus others follow.

Price dropped to $49.99 at Best Buy as well ($39.99 if unlocked). Kudos to them for not releasing it as a full price game.

re: The Last of Us (PS3 and PS4)

Sounds like good news for us getting the remastered version for the PS4....

The Last of Us: Remastered PS4 Is Next-Gen, "Loads High-Res Data & Way More To Fill 8GB, Its Still Faster"

Naughty Dog's Drew Thaler has shared some interesting new details regarding The Last of Us: Remastered for Playstation 4

Take a full disc. Up-rez literally everything (incl audio). Add 1GB MP maps, 5GB Left Behind. Fit on same disc. Load faster. Sixty."

"This is next-gen for me: compared to PS3, PS4 TLOU:R is loading higher-res data and WAY more of it to fill 8 GiB, and it's *still* faster."

"The Last of Us: Remastered for PS4. We're almost done, and it's beautiful. "


He further clarified he was referring to both "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and The Last of Us: Remastered" with this tweet "This game is going to look so damn good."


"Both, but I was looking at TLOU:R when I said it!" clarified Drew.

"Both … but I was looking at TLOU:R when I said it. Side-by-side it's just crazy how much better it is than PS3."
Lastly Drew stated that those who missed The Last of Us on Playstation 3, Remastered on Playstation 4 will be worth it.

" It'll be worth it!"

I would love to go back and play that game for the first time again. Even a year later, nothing has come close to that game in my eyes.

Looking forward to this. I sold my PS3 quite a few years ago, so this will be my first exposure to the game.

New The Last of Us: Remastered PS4 Info Blowout: "Day One Patch, Photo Mode, Dualshock 4 Lightbar/Touchpad Working"

http://www.gamepur.com/news/15458-ne...dualshock.html

* both singleplayer/multiplayer of The Last of Us: Remastered runs at 1080p/60 FPS, however players will still have an option to locked the frame-rate at 30 FPS for more consistent experience i.e similar to what Sucker Punch did with The Last of Us: Remastered

*In addition to this, The Last of Us: Remastered will receive a Day One patch and "Screenshot Tool" similar to the one in Infamous: Second Son. No details was revealed regarding the content day one patch will feature.

*DualShock 4 lightbar will reflect the health of players, it will change from Blue to Orange to Red depending on players physical health. With Touchpad, players will be able to open Joel's backpack, whereas flashlight sounds/audio recording will appear via controller's speaker

Here is a list of some of the technical improvements....

◦1080p/60 FPS in single player and multiplayer.
◦Texture maps are 4x more detailed. Shadow maps 2x.
◦Higher resolution particle effects.
◦Occlusion mapping on decals.
◦No texture streaming.
◦Longer draw distances, better LOD
◦Expanded audio menu options.
◦Possibility to lock frame rate at 30 FPS.
◦Possibility to swap trigger and thumbsticks controls.
◦DualShock 4 touch pad, light bar and speaker supported.
◦Cinematics with commentary by Neil Druckmann, Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson.

Yeah, I'm gonna pass on this. The first go around left such an impression on me that I actually don't wanna revisit it and possibly see flaws, etc that could dampen my opinion of it.

Gameinformer got a chance to play the new remastered version. A small but good detail on what they thought...

All I can say is that the game looks really good at 60fps. Playing it at 30fps would be a terrible idea. It's not like inFAMOUS SS where the game struggles to hit 30-35, TLOU is 55-60 the entire time.

Stu, do you know anything about the preorder stuff, like the skins and the weapon crafting stuff? Is it worth it?

Just read this and made me LOL.

* The game takes place over a period of several years, with each mission being set in a time period ala Mafia 2.
* Ellie will age throughout the game, ending at around 19 or 20
* Your choices will affect the personality she grows into - she'll be cold if you kill lots, psychologically damaged if you do unnecessary brutal things, etc
* There will be driving sections, but you won't be able to drive cars unless the mission puts you in one
* Stealth and non-lethality is a completely viable option - the section showed at E3 could have been entirely without ever being seen
* It's possible to pickpocket things from enemies - The example Naughty Dog used was you could skip entire firefights by sneaking up on a guy and stealing his keys.

I loved the final release of course. But it's always interesting how games evolve in development.

I know this sounds gimmicky but, at least it is an interesting use of the lightbar...even if we can't see it lol.

Other games do that as well, and it's pointless. The only thing the light on the controller is good for is killing its battery life.

agreed...I hate it, and wish you could turn it off.

I have never bought a custom controller for myself (I bought my son one) but I am not interested in rapid fire, or special buttons...I want a custom ps4 controller with a better battery, and the ability to turn off the light. I would buy one of those.

50gb is more or less the norm these days so no surprise there.
