We'll happily pay the $60, just tell us when
The Last of Us proved to be a smash hit for the Playstation 3, winning over 200 game of the year awards and garnering a roundhouse of critical acclaim. It was, as many have put it, a once in a generation experience, but that experience can be… experienced by another generation, too. But when will PS4 owners get their hands on it?
The Last of Us looks pretty good on PS3. The PS4 version will be mindblowing
The game was kind-of-accidentally announced as Sony’s US PlayStation network shop listed the PlayStation 4 version of The Last Of Us. And by now we know it exists anyway because Naughty Dog has officially unveiled it on their blog. We know the price will be somewhere around the $60 mark – like any new game – but we don’t know when it will be released.
It's the news that PS4 owners have been waiting for, if they've completed The Last of Us or not...
The Last of Us proved to be the jewel in the PS3’s crown; a worthy send off for a console that provided one of gaming’s longest generations. And now that send-off is finding its way into the current generation as Naughty Dog confirm their hugely impressive post-apocalyptic drama is undergoing a transformation with a view to a re-mastered, PS4 version.

And judging on everything we know so far, we’d say it is a good idea.
Ellie and Joel navigate a dangerous town in The Last of Us
First off, a little on how the game came about from Screen Gems President Clint Culpepper: “Screen Gems’ Brian Dukes and Eric Ling brought this game to my attention insisting we go after it, and when I saw the quality of the storytelling, I knew the audience for this project was far greater than just the gaming community and that Neil Druckmann must write the screenplay .I am thrilled that SCEA’s Riley Russell was able to get me in front of Neil and Evan Wells to plead my case. Sam and his team at Ghost House round out the perfect team to help realize Neil’s vision.”

And it looks like the respected studio have done it again...
Naughty Dog put time, care and attention into their work. The Last of Us was a forensically crafted, deep title with time spent on characterization never before seen in videogames. It was, by all accounts – including ours – a masterpiece. Now the journey is extended with Left Behind: the first and only piece of DLC for Joel and Ellie’s adventure.
Riley and Ellie in The Last of Us' Left Behind DLC out today: Feb 14
At the heart of The Last of Us’ charm lay a vested interest in extracurricular foraging. Using a shiv to open a door to an otherwise inaccessible room offered up great reward, and extra tidbits of story would be relayed in places off the beaten track. For IGN’s Colin Moriarty, this is one of the aspects that carried over well to Left Behind, which features Ellie’s story before she met Joel.
