Slip of the tongue from Sony VP?

The Last of Us

The Last of Us is coming to PlayStation 4 this summer, according to PlayStation Turkey vice president Sercan Sulun.

Asked by CNN Turk if we’d see a sequel to the hit Naughty Dog game anytime soon, Sulun replied (translation via), “No, a sequel is not coming right now as far as I know. But I can say that first game will be released this summer for PlayStation 4 as a physical and digital copy, with enhanced graphics.”

The February-launched ‘Left Behind’ add-on will be included, Sulun added.

The Last of Us first launched for PlayStation 3 last June.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    I really hope this isn’t BS. People will bitch and moan about another upgraded game, but this is one I totally welcome.

    • Pyrofrost

      Agreed man. I haven’t played this game yet myself. I’ve considered picking it up, but I’ve always been on the fence about it.

  • Sal Romano

    I haven’t played it yet, so Sony plz.

    • Zero

      Same here. I couldn’t agree with you more. =P

    • Anime10121

      Its good, MUCH better than Resident Evil has become… its not ZOMG best game EVAR like everyone claimed it to be, but it IS a solid survival horror game and I think you’d enjoy it, so if it releases on PS4 DO IT!!!

    • Pyrofrost

      Same here man, lol. Same here!

  • Arcana Gear

    This isnt really a big surprise to me, i mean we will probably have a lot of end ps3 lifetime western games being upgraded for ps4 before it begins to get its own exclusives.

  • Wolf Star

    I will buy it again!! :3 I hope people don’t bitch and moan about this “upgraded game” BS like they did with Tomb Raider -___-

  • TetsuyaHikari

    Interesting. I’m not going to buy it again, but it will give people an exclusive PS4 title to brag about, heh.

    • orzorzorz

      eh, i wouldn’t call it an exclusive if its only improving the graphics

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Well, I just meant exclusive in the sense that it’s not on XBOX One. Personally, I enjoyed the game and if someone was thinking about buying a PS4 this Summer, I’d suggest for them to pick this up for a nice exclusive title.

        • orzorzorz

          well if you mean microsoft v. sony exclusive then i guess you’re right, but saying “exclusive PS4 title” just seemed a little misleading.

      • MrFinalgamer

        If people consider TF an exclusive, then this should be too.

        • orzorzorz

          people who call TF an exclusive are wrong anyway

  • Aleksandrina

    YES. Loved this game to death, I’ll buy it again without any hesitation. ♥

  • Elvick

    Will buy again, like I did with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

    • Pyrofrost

      You’ve really talked about this game a lot. How is the gameplay (smooth, freeflowing)? Would you recommend it to me?

      • Elvick

        What game? TLoU? Tomb Raider?

        • Pyrofrost

          The Last of Us.

          I’m generally not into Western games, but both of those have piqued my interest.

  • MrFinalgamer

    I bought the game on launch…my PS3 broke, and i haven’t been able to replace it…now the question is…should i play it on a new PS3, or buy a PS4, and this version? O_O
    Regardless it better include the DLC, though!

    • blank059

      Buy a PS3 because it’s getting a lot of good games.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Oh I know that! At the very least I’m getting one for P5 (as much as I fear about some things they’ll do to it), plus i got a massive backlog that i need to finish on the PS3…

  • Keegs79

    This is nice but I really prefer Dark Souls 2 on the PS4. That is the only game I can see myself buying twice. This just gives me hope that it might happen.

  • blank059

    It’ll give Xbox 360 only owners of last gen who jumped to PS4 this gen who wanted to play the game a chance to play it so that’s a good thing.

  • DesmaX

    Oh, this is cool. The Last of Us is a great game, so it’s nice to see more people getting a chance to play it.

    Might just double dib if I get a PS4. The Multiplayer is fun

  • DarthBrian

    I hope this is true. Can’t finish the game on PS3 because it keeps crashing on me every 15 minutes. >_>

  • DeadnBuried

    TLOU was my favourite game of last year, but I don’t see much point in this potential release. It already looks fantastic and runs like a dream, there’s not a whole lot of room for improvement there, and having already enjoyed all the DLC to date I don’t have any need for that aspect either.

    Who am I kidding? I loved the game so much that I finished it three times, got the platinum trophy and I’m sure I’ll still end up buying this. The DualShock 4 controller just makes everything that little bit better.

  • MrRobbyM

    Well, good thing I haven’t played it yet.

    • miyamoto


  • True Gamer


  • new_tradition

    Is anymore DLC for the PS3 version in the works after that Ellie one? ‘Cause I wonder how they would price a PS4 version with all the fixings.

    • DesmaX


    • Anime10121

      Only multiplayer dlc

  • Fango

    Awesome! This will give Xbox defectors the chance to experience a truly amazing game on the PS4 this generation!

  • PrinceHeir

    Lol and that Eric(Naughty Dog producer) guy laughed about The Last of US PS4 not happening.

    Sony owns the IP. Of course they’re gonna do what they want with it, whether Naughty Dog is okay with that or not.

    Though it’s a shame i just bought the Left Behind DLC yesterday.

    This should include all MP DLC and Left Behind being implemented in the main story(no need to go to a separate menu) Kinda like what Deus Ex Human Revolution did with The Missing Link DLC. Already incorporated in the main story line.

    Still Finally a PS4 version!! 1080p 60FPS come on!!

    All it needs now is Dark Souls II, Grand Theft Auto V PS4 :)

    • Sevyne

      I’ve actually been holding off on buying Dark Souls II just in case it gets a PS4 release (and I really hope it does). If it doesn’t happen, then at least I can get it on PS3 and it’ll be cheaper by then.

  • jujubee88

    Yeah, but if this is a big E3 reveal thing . . . it would suck.

    Just saying.

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    It’s probably the Game Of The Year Edition.

  • Budgiecat

    And yet the A.I. will still be dumb as bricks….

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Then they shall die by bricks again :p

    • Elvick

      The AI is fine. Unless you’re talking about ally AI and it not triggering the Infected… which is a conscious design choice to avoid frustrating the player.

      Faulting the player for the AI is the dumbest design decision you can make in any game.

      And that is only an issue with more than Joel and Ellie. ie; 3 or more NPCs running around. That’s the only time they move around stupidly.

      • Budgiecat


        In terms of enemy A.I., I’m referring to how multiple times they promised “amazing groundbreaking A.I.”, as shown in the initial gameplay reveal walkthrough…

        Obviously if they had to scale back on this, it was due to either budget or time restraints, or running into bugs due to the PS3 not being powerful enough to handle it.

        But I would never bring up the A.I. in the first place if they never originally boasted about it in their reveal but failed to deliver anything close to what they claimed.

        As well as Ellie’s consequence system….

  • Stealth

    He is going to get fired probably for breaking that story . I doubt Sony is happy with him right now

    • blank059

      What are you talking about!? He is not going to get fired he is going to “leave”.

      On a serious note he’ll be fine, it was probably done with permission from the higher up guys anyway.

      • Stealth

        I highly doubt he got permission to leak a game.

        • blank059

          Maybe they did it to build up hype? It’s just a possibility though. Don’t think he’ll be fired anyway since I don’t think the guy that leaked GT6 got fired.

        • Zackasaur

          He won’t get fired… This has happened before. Sony are pretty lenient.

    • Impressionnant

      This was planned BY Sony. There are no such things as leaks, anymore. It’s all controlled.

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Genetic control. Information control. Emotion control. Battlefield control. Everything is monitored and kept under control. War has changed.

        • Budgiecat

          Gran Turismo control. Infamous control. Emotion Engine control. Battlefield 4 control. Everything is monitored and kept under control. Console War has changed…

      • Elvick

        I’d say “all controlled” is a bit much.

        • Impressionnant

          Sony, please.

  • Anime10121

    Damn… I should have waited… I mean, it was a good game, but there’s no way in hell I’m paying 60 bucks for it again. Heck I LOVED Tomb Raider and I’m not paying even 30 to play it again with just prettier graphics…

    Would have been nice, but too late for me :/

  • HighBrowDrifter

    “PlayStation Turkey Boss”….lol

  • pekot

    I don’t regret playing TLOU on ps3 even if ps4 edition is much better

  • tokyobassist

    Great more last gen ports.

    Can we get some new games up in this bitch please?

    • Budgiecat


      Sony keeps firing people or they keep quitting

    • Elvick

      No, all resources are in ports. Because it takes 400 development teams to make one port.


      • tokyobassist


        Oh well…not my paperweight to sell. Majority of the titles I’m even interested in have no release dates meaning 2015 and possibly further and even then, there’s the chance that those games might suck.

        • AdamBoy64

          Yeah, it’s a pretty slow start to the gen, for the most part.

    • LustEnvy

      Think about it like this: A lot of people who didn’t own a PS3 went and bought PS4s, just barely missing the awesomeness that was TLOU. Now, they have a chance of playing one of the greatest games ever made, in it’s best form.

      Ports are not the evil that so many people think they are. They’re not tasking and resource heavy as making brand new games either, so they’re easier to churn out, without taking away from what devs are doing with newer games.

  • rurifan

    This is great, keep the ports coming. Last gen was such a failure, I don’t ever want to turn my PS3 on again.

    • LunarHaven

      Failure how? I got 140 games in my PS3 collection and I tell you, a TON of them are on my replay list.

      • rurifan

        We enjoyed them despite the last generation’s failure, but there’s no reason to put up with that anymore. If it’s worth replaying, it’s worth porting to PS4 to play it right this time. :)

    • LustEnvy

      That doesn’t make sense. If last gen was such a failure, why do you want ports of last gen’s games?

      • TetsuyaHikari

        I don’t think a lot of gamers these days know what the hell they like or want any more, lol.

        • 罪罰

          Let’s port everything.

          • TetsuyaHikari

            More ports than a router!


          • AdamBoy64

            Yeah, absolutely. Why bother making new games?
            That time should be spent porting.

        • rurifan

          I for one want every game (past and present) to run at 60fps without obvious technical flaws. Not a lot to ask.

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Actually, that’s more than you think. That’s like asking for every single movie in existence to be brought over to Blu-ray. Going from 30fps to 60fps takes some work and isn’t always even required.

            So yeah, I think your demand is superficial at best and not exactly a necessity. It is quite a lot to ask and is selfish to think you actually deserve this.

      • LeBronista


      • rurifan

        Your comment is so silly I suspect it’s a troll, but I will humor you.

        Last generation console technology was inadequate to meet expectations for a variety of reasons. This resulted in many good games filled with technical flaws. (Bad frame rate, bad textures, bad lighting, bad shadowmaps, etc.)

        All clear on why we want to see good games on good hardware?

        • TetsuyaHikari

          Newsflash. PC games were hit with technical flaws too. DRM, multiple glitches with graphics (Dark Souls comes to mind that had to be fixed with a fanmade mod no less), control issues, crashing clients after patches, so forth and so on.

          There was nothing wrong with the hardware. The hardware is only as good as the developer is for it. Basically, if the game is made poorly, it won’t matter what kind of hardware you have (see: Silent Hill HD Collection/Zone of the Enders HD Collection/etc.). If there truly was a problem with the hardware itself, then every single game released during last gen would have had issues, which is not the case.

          It’s funny how you’re quick to point out that their comment was silly and you suspected them of being a troll, and I’m just sitting here thinking the same of you since you obviously have a bias towards consoles.

          • rurifan

            It doesn’t require any kind of bias to recognize that the last console generation was a failure. Just parade out the endless line of games showcasing one pathetic technical flaw after the next. Major titles running continually below 30fps?!

            There really were not very many games that managed last gen without major technical compromises. (Bayonetta on XB360 comes to mind.)

            • TetsuyaHikari

              Yeah, I suppose that’s why we have PS4 and XBOX One now because the last generation was a failure. Yep, sure makes sense to me. Look, man, just get your crackpot theories out of here, alright?

              I know exactly what kind of person you are already. Regardless of what happens during this generation, you’re going to sit there and say it failed too come the next generation. You’re never going to be satisfied, so why even bother being a part of it any more? Just remove yourself from the situation and you’ll stop being so stressed about it.

              Go play PC games 24/7 or something since consoles are obviously dead to you anyway.

              • rurifan

                Better check your assumptions again man, since the last PC game I played was Baldur’s Gate 2 in 2001. ;)

                I notice you haven’t addressed the real life fact that almost every last generation game was riddled with technical laws. But whatever, I’m pleased to see devs are on track to do what many of us want and release proper versions of their games for PS4.

                Looking forward to the future while I hold my nose playing the mess of Dark Souls 2 on xbox360. :(

                • TetsuyaHikari

                  >Better check your assumptions again man, since the last PC game I played was Baldur’s Gate 2 in 2001. ;)

                  It wasn’t an assumption, it was a suggestion since you don’t seem to like the direction consoles are going in.

                  >I notice you haven’t addressed the real life fact that almost every last generation game was riddled with technical laws

                  I also noticed you didn’t address the fact that you overexaggerated your statement and refuse to acknowledge the fact that there were plenty of games that didn’t have technical flaws in them, and that these flaws you speak of were not the fault of the hardware, but the developer(s) involved.

                  In any case, you obviously have your views and I have mine, so let’s just leave it at that. There aren’t any more leaves left to be beaten off this bush anyway.

        • LustEnvy

          You have a deep lack of understanding of what trolling is, and I suspect just lack some common sense in general.

          Anyone would question your broken logic. The systems were fine for the time they came out. It was companies who couldn’t make games run well on the systems that were to blame.

          • rurifan

            Go ahead and believe last gen consoles were fabulous wonders of technology, hampered only by devs who failed to harness the power of unicorn farts. Regardless of why, most last gen games were crippled by technical flaws.

            So it would be great to play them ported to PS4 without all those flaws. Got it? Pretty simple.

            (Spins the camera again in Dark Souls 2 and watches the world tear in half…)

            • LustEnvy

              Jesus, you are really reaching now. Go home. You’re incredibly mistaken if you think the new systems aren’t going to have technical issues. Hell, Tomb Raider, a last gen game, can’t even stay at 60fps on the ps4, dipping below that quite consistently (I own it and love it, so no I’m not making this up).

              As time progresses, companies will start pushing these systems, and some things will be compromised as they have always been. We’ll lose framerates, resolution, and other things just to make some of these games run good enough.

              If you want your miracle system with the least amount of flaws, buy an expensive pc setup, because otherwise, prepare for disappointment.

              I’m done feeding your stupidity.

              • rurifan

                You seem to have lost track of what was being discussed anyway.

    • bloodiOS

      But I have a feeling this will be locked at 30fps though xD

      • Daniel Cool

        mate we talking here about PS4,
        Its gonna be 60 fps without worry ^^
        Like Tomb Raider ^^

        • bloodiOS

          I’m just messing with rurifan there.

      • rurifan

        Which amazingly enough would be a significant improvement over the PS3 version. -_-

        • bloodiOS

          Perhaps for some, it would be. It sure won’t be enough warrant a double-dipping from me and probably worth shit from where you stand xD

  • LustEnvy

    Good. Good. The battle system put me off a little the first time around, but I’ll get over it and play through it on the PS4.

  • nyobzoo

    will double dip if true

  • Zukato

    I didn’t have a chance to buy it for my PS3. Now? Totally waiting it out for the PS4.

  • Rezar

    This was SCEE’s response to Joystiq: “At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject.”

  • 武神水樹

    Never thought this gen would be full of ports

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I see later HD enhancements of games like Tales of Xillia & Xillia 2, Vesperia, and more. I mean ports

    • bloodiOS

      Let’s go with classic term (that not many seem to care enough to use anymore) “enhanced port” ;)

    • 罪罰

      powts powts powts powts

    • Anime10121

      Vesperia…would be nice, so it’ll likely never happen, and if by any chance it did…only in Japan :(

      • PBsolobear

        Dude….I have been wanting Vesperia for Playstation since I played it years ago on 360. PLEASE JUST MAKE A DIGITAL VERSION…..thats alll I ask
