The Last of Us: Remastered release date is…

TLOU tease

The games industry is a strange place, and it just keeps getting weirder. Instead of just releasing a trailer, we get a teaser for a trailer, or maybe an announcement that a teaser for a trailer is forthcoming. Now, there is even more teasing.

Here is the teasing tweet:

Now, it’s normal for there to be release dates and deadlines that are known within a studio and only revealed to the public when they want. E3 is coming and many studios are planning on spilling the beans then. However, this is just feeling like a tease of a release tease. I’m glad to know that an internal date has been set – I would hope that this would be ready by now. However, it simply seems unnecessary to post things like this when further information isn’t available yet.

I’m glad that The Last of Us will be coming to PS4. It’s a great game and for those who missed it on PS3, it’s the perfect opportunity to play it with the improved controller and experience. However, it is getting irritating to see how many games are getting ported to the new generation; I know it’s still early on in the generation and this is the quick and easy way to build a library, but I’d still rather see games that were specifically build to work on the new architecture.

Are you planning on replaying games as they appear on the new consoles, or are you using these upgraded ports as an opportunity to play those games you missed out on the first time around?

    Got me excited for nothing ๐Ÿ™‚ : play those games I missed out the first time around. I usually skip a console generation so did not have a PS3. I am glad this game that was game of the year is being redone also enjoyed Tomb raider for the same reason. Will also buy a full set of GOW games if they ever decided to remake those.

    I will only play those I missed out on, on previous generation. Last of Us is not one of them, I will whatch vids to see the difference, but I do not think it holds any appeal to replay. Only game I would ever want redone (remastered) and will replay is Final Fantasy VII.

    Why would you wanna tease a tease trailer of a game thats already been released and is a HD port to new console. . Thats like advertising a car thats already been sold out.. very silly I say.

      Well imo if they gave this the same treatment as Tomb Raider I would say it’s justified. Though I can’t imagine how as the graphics for this on the PS3 was already awesome.

      We’ve known about this for ages and it’s a remake – I doubt Sony would use this as the ace up its sleeve. I think that was the cancelled project from Santa Monica http://www.vg247.com/2014/02/28/sony-santa-monicas-sci-fi-ip-was-to-be-revealed-at-e3-2014-rumour/

      The ace will be something like The Last Guardian or new God of War. It won’t be a remake of a game already out – certainly not for the first E3 after their console launch.

          I’m almost certain we won’t see Last Guardian, either, but that’s the KIND of thing that would be an ace up their sleeve – not a port of an older game.

          I think it may be a new God of War title, There was an PS E3 video the other day on Lagz and it showed a quick glimpse of Kratos. Not so sure if we need another one though .

            God Of War could be nice but it’ll need some major re invention! Think the new Gears Of War developers have the right idea when saying they need to “betray” fans just enough to allow for some fresh ideas into the existing IP. Sony desperately need a Sunset Overdrive or a Quantum Break and not just tech demos this E3. Just scared Sony will only be VR VR VR this E3 while we all know MS is going with Games Games Games!

    I suspect a number of people who bought 360’s last gen are buying PS4’s this gen given the high sales of the PS4 compared to the Xbox One. With that being true, The Last of Us is a game that could find a decent-sized audience of people who didn’t get to play it yet.

    Here’s hoping they don’t get greedy and try to price it at full game pricing because I doubt THAT will work out very well for them.

    Great to know that The Last of Us is getting released again. However, what if people miss out with this new PlayStation 4 version? What then? Release it for PlayStation Vita? I hope. Because PlayStation Now is taking WAY too long over here in Europe! Just announce to port this new version over to the Vita in the next few months, Naughty Dog.
