No Discount For Previous The Last of Us Owners

Sony has revealed that there will be no upgrade program for The Last of Us: Remastered. Answering a question on a PlayStation Blog post, Fred Dutton said: “Alas, there is no upgrade discount.”

When The Last of Us: Remastered was announced, fans wondered if there will be a discount for gamers that already bought The Last of Us for PlayStation 3. While some games like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Call of Duty: Ghosts previously supported this option, it seems that it won’t be the case for The Last of Us: Remastered.

Last of us

The Last of Us: Remastered will be an upgraded version of last year’s The Last of Us for the PlayStation 4. The title will include 1080p, 60FPS (with a choice to lock on 30FPS if you choose), commentary from Neil Druckmann, Troy Baker, and Ashley Johnson, all the DLC including Left Behind and the more recent Grounded DLC, and a new Photo Mode.

The Last of Us: Remastered will be released on July 29th on PlayStation 4 for $49.99.

My Opinion:

On one hand, it’s disappointing that there won’t be an upgrade program for The Last of Us: Remastered, but on the other I can see why they didn’t do it. This isn’t a simple 1080p/60FPS with all the DLC upgrade like Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition, which was $60 when it was first released, Naughty Dog went all out to make sure that The Last of Us looks, sounds, and plays better on PlayStation 4. The Last of Us: Remastered was almost $60 at one time until they dropped the price to $50. They even refunded $10 to the players that pre-ordered the digital version of The Last of Us: Remastered whenitdropped in price.


Jesse Webster still gets freaked out when he hears that clicking sounds. You can find him at Twitter.
