Josh Walker has defended the pricing of "The Last of Us Remastered." According to a report from Gamepur on July 5, the product manager from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe disclosed that his company has been "careful" when determining the price tag of the port in order to give value to customers looking to buy "The Last of Us" again. The PS4 version was previously priced at $59.99 before officially dropping to $49.99.
"The Last of Us Remastered" comes with various improvements when compared to the original PS3 game. Along with running at 60 frames per second while implementing 1080p native support, Naughty Dog also increased the details to the character models and lighting effects. Furthermore, all three major DLC packs that came out after the launch of the original are going to be included as well.
Josh Walker also believed that the PS4 game is going to appeal to new players as well. His company has looked through the trophy data from Playstation Network accounts, discovering that a majority of players on the next-generation systems have not yet played the survival-horror action-adventure video game on the PS3. He deduced that a lot of PS4 owners came from other systems such as the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360.
"The Last of Us" came out for the PS3 in June of last year. Although it was only released on one console, the software product still became a major success, selling six million units in less than a year of release. "The Last of Us Remastered" will be released near the end of this month on July 29 in the North American region.
The aforementioned Naughty Dog is also working on "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End," which is being published by Sony Computer Entertainment as well. The sequel is being built from the ground up for the PS4 next-generation system. It is expected to come out sometime next year after being announced in late 2013.
