The Last of Us: Remastered isn't a Rip-off, and here's why

16 posts in this topic

So, I've been reading on the internet on how people think that The Last of Us: Remastered is a rip-off; the reasons they give are that it only came out a year ago and that this is a cash in, it doesn't add anything and is the same game, and just isn't worth it. I can kinda understand where they're coming from. The Last of Us did come out last year, and it may be the same game in multiple ways, but I think remastering it for the PS4 is a smart move. Why? Well, let me tell you. Many people chose to go with the Xbox 360 instead of the PS3 last gen- since The Last of Us is a PS3 exclusive, a lot of people with 360s were angry/sad that they couldn't play it after seeing reviews and hearing other people talk about it. I went with the PS3, so I was able to play The Last of Us when it came out last year. It's a fact that many people switched from Xbox to Playstation after the PS4 was lauded as a better console by multiple medias (I agree with this, but I don't really have anything against the Xbox One anymore) and after Microsoft made fools of themselves with the whole DRM "can't just change it with a press of a button but oh wait we did it anyway lol forgive us plz" thing. So, the people who missed out on it last gen with 360s that switched to the PS4 will now be able to experience it in remastered form. I'm quite happy that people who missed out on it will be able to experience it; The Last of Us was my favorite last gen game and might be my favorite game of all time (not just saying that, I'm serious). This youtube video sums up my points pretty well, if you're interested:

Video links to a 404 for me, but from what I understand is that you are saying that its not a rip off since people are switching from xbox to ps?

It's not a ripoff if you never bought it before on PS3. I think it's a brilliant idea for new PS4 owners that never got to play it. If you own it on PS3 already, then I don't see the point in buying it again. They didn't release this version for those folks in particular.

And it might be YouTube, but I don't see much of an improvement in visuals, despite saying it'll be 1080p and is being targeted for 60fps. Unless the short footage shown was from the ps3 version, but I don't think that was the case.

Quite simply, this isn't a ripoff because it comes with 30 bucks worth of DLC, was being worked on for almost a year, and was an exclusive (unlike Tomb Raider). There are so many people who came to the PS4 from Xbox 360 (me included) who would die to play this, so it would be insane for them not to release it. Talk about a system seller to other Xbox converts...

Even if it was a rip-off, I'd still get it on the PS4. I didn't get around to buying it on the PS3 because I already have a big backlog of games but a friend has continued to nag me into playing it so why not go with the better version of it?

I don't think they have released PS4 footage of it yet. I know in an interview  they did with naughty dog, they used PS3 footage

There is footage in Playstation's announcement trailer. But really its only 10 seconds long, and its not enough to really get a feel for the changes.

^ I don't know why anyone would consider it to be a rip off.

Who exactly is this supposed to be ripping off?  The people who haven't bought the game or people who have?  I can't imagine any rational person could see this as a ripoff.  It just opens the game up to a newer and wider audience.
