The-Last-of-Us-Nature1

When The Last of Us: Remastered was announced for the PS4, developer Naughty Dog didn’t confirm or deny that they would offer PS3 consumers a discount when upgrading to the newer version. Today’s Official Playstation Blog post, however, has crushed their dreams.

SCEA Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went on to sell The Last of Us: Remastered based on his hands-on experience with the game. When asked in the comments if an upgrade discount would be offered, EU Blog Manager Fred Dutton responded with “Alas, there is no upgrade discount“, which is bound to disappoint fans who have already purchased the PS3 version and its Season Pass content.

The Last of Us: Remastered is scheduled to release for PS4 on July 30th, featuring updated visuals, a 30fps/60fps option, developer commentary, as well as all Season Pass content found in the PS3 version.

  1. Yeah, it’s a raw deal all around. They should have discounted it in general since it was so close to the original release.

    1. I agree. I know it’s not even in the same ballpark, as far as budgets go, but Microsoft is offering an upgrade discount for Minecraft on Xbox One, and plenty of games offered a cheap upgrade fee going from 360 to Xbox One. Definitely a bummer.
