First look at Naughty Dog's PlayStation 4 upgrade.

The Last of Us

Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog have released the debut trailer for The Last of Us Remastered, announced yesterday as coming to PlayStation 4 this summer with 1080p resolution and targeting 60 frames per second.

Watch it below.

  • Zackasaur

    Holy shit, this game still gives me chills. It’s the kind of masterpiece I’ll talk about in my eighties.

    Will buy on PS4.

  • DarthBrian

    Can’t watch cuz spoilers right? I didn’t get very far in PS3 version as it crashed my machine constantly.

    • Zackasaur

      Your PS3 has internal hardware issues. Just a fair warning.

      Do you know how to clean it out and replace thermal paste?

      • DarthBrian

        No. I’ve seen videos. I don’t have the tools or talent to do it.

        • Zackasaur

          You might consider hiring someone to do it if you want to keep your PS3 around. Sometimes you can find pretty decent people on Craigslist, depending on where you live. It’s not especially challenging, but it takes a little confidence and some tools.

          • DarthBrian

            Do you live in SoCal? If so you can do it for me. :p

  • DesmaX

    Oh, the scene on the trailer is quite a spoiler, so I woudn’t advise people that didn’t play this on the PS3 to see it.

    Anyway, it doesn’t look too different; but it should be worth a purchase if it runs at 60fps

    • DarthBrian

      Thanks for the warning!!! <3 <3 <3

    • Zackasaur

      Current gen is wasted on YouTube. The excessive compression makes all comparisons and trailers misleading. :/

  • DesmaX

    … Sal, please take the header off. It’s quite the spoiler

    • Budgiecat

      Actually Sal , you should put a spoiler warning for the vid…

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Honestly, people should expect spoilers if it’s a trailer for a remastered version of something since they are expecting you played the original already (see: HD editions).

        • Budgiecat

          Still it’s considerate. It’s not like its over 10 years old like FFX. It’s barely a year old game and this time around PS4 has managed to snag a large portion of the former XBox crowd that probably didn’t play it so..

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            You’re right, it’s considerate, but it’s also kind of common sense too. A remaster indicates that an original is out there. It’s like complaining about spoilers after watching a trailer for a remastered movie.

            The trailer itself is simply there to show off content that you’ve seen, only to show you improvements either through graphics or audio, sometimes even both. So yeah… I get what you’re saying, but that’s not really the purpose of these kind of trailers.

            • Budgiecat

              I barely noticed any improvements though lol

              the majority of the vid was them too tooting their own horn about how many awards they got lol

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Well, it’s easier to sell a game to some uninformed individual when they hear about how many awards it got.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      How are seeing the giraffes a spoiler again…? It was a touching moment, sure, but nothing that would spoil the story just by someone seeing them though.

      • DesmaX

        Knowing about them kinda ruins the moment.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Eh… Yes and no. The moment itself doesn’t even last that long. Plus, outside the short sequence, it’s optional to even stand around looking at them anyway. I could think of plenty of things that could ruin moments in the game, but this isn’t really one of them.

  • Zackasaur

    FFX is another such game. c:

    X-2, not so much. Just a distraction.

    Edit: I pre-ordered it for both PS3 and Vita.

    • badmoogle

      You’re talking to a bot. :p

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Really? I checked his profile and the content itself looks legit. He just keeps putting that link at the end of his messages and I’m not sure what it’s for (not clicking it, lol). Maybe it’s a referral or something.

        Either way, probably making money off of it and you’ll probably get adware/malware/etc. if you click it, so I wouldn’t do it.

        • Sevyne

          It’s not legit. It’s copy/pasted from someone else’s comment and then a link is added to it. That’s what they do. Hell Zackasaur’s first comment in this topic was that exact comment, and somehow he didn’t catch this even though he responded to the bot. lol

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Ah. They just copy someone else’s comment, huh? Well, I didn’t see the user that originally made the comments that were being copied :p

            • Sevyne

              Yeah. It seems to be the new thing with these bots.

          • Zackasaur

            Er, I -did- catch this. I thought they were being funny.

            I’ve never seen a bot of this variety, and I used to run websites. o_o

            • Sevyne

              It’s a more recent thing. I’ve been seeing them a lot and reporting them. Zero has probably been moderating them before you see them.

              • Zackasaur

                Pretty weird. :c

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Well, I went ahead and notified him recently about this one, so it should be taken care of momentarily.

                • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                  I was already on it but thanks though.

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    Better safe than sorry, I guess!

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                It’s typically just spam bots or something like that trying to be a bit more creative.

                • Sevyne

                  Yep. It’s an attempt for them to blend in with the comments, but on a site like this (where the comment traffic isn’t in the thousands) they’re pretty obvious. I always make sure to report those.

      • Zackasaur

        *shakes fist*

  • Budgiecat

    Anita Sarkeesian influenced and approved!

  • MrKappa

    Not much of a trailer. Wouldn’t buy this game again anyway unless it was $20… or $30 at the most.

  • Izzeltrioum

    Have yet to experience it, and I saw no big deal with those Giraffes.

    I will forget about it anyway as I don’t think I’m buying this at all. This is one hell of a title PS PLUS will receive eventually (Like U3).

    • Zackasaur

      Mayyyyyyybe…. The PS4 version makes that a lot less likely, at least for a while.

      Perhaps if they announce a sequel.

      Either way, I’m buying it twice at $60. Easily the most impressive work in gaming. I can’t play it enough.

  • Unretributed

    The original had Giraffes? I don’t remember giraffes… That must have been close to the end when I stopped paying attention because I got bored.

    I do remember monkeys though.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      See? Unretributed doesn’t even remember them and you guys are calling for spoilers, lol.

    • http://www.hush404.com hush404

      Really? It is near the end, but I vividly remember it.

      • Unretributed

        I lost interest in the game after a while. Everything that happened after the whole playing as Ellie part was boring to me since that was the highlight of the game IMO.

        And it wasn’t about playing as her, it was the events in the story that took place while playing as her that were the best.

        • http://www.hush404.com hush404

          Ahh k. Yeah, i get ya. The giraffe thing was neat though :) Twas a nice contrast to all the dark stuff happening all around.

    • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

      Got bored with it? Don’t remember giraffes? Did you even play the game? Did you actually play the game?

      • Unretributed

        It’s not my fault I don’t remember the giraffes! They should’ve made it more exciting like a boss fight with an infected giraffe herd or something.

        • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

          It was a very touching moment in the game. What your saying wouldn’t make it more memorable. It would make it cliche. It was very human moment but no, let’s just throw in some more crap to kill. Like we don’t get that enough…

          • Unretributed

            Obvious joke was obvious. Calm down.

      • DrForbidden

        Meh, I got bored with it towards the end as well. He’s hardly the only one. Stop pretending there is anything wrong with other people not loving something you do.

        Still, the giraffes occurred somewhere in the middle of the game, not towards the end.

        • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

          No I wont when it comes to trolls.

          • DrForbidden

            And how was he trolling? By saying he got bored with the game towards the end and stopped paying attention? Really?

            I guess virtually everyone who disagrees with your assessment of emotional impact in a game must be a troll in your book, then.

            • http://Xcite79.1up.com/ Keegs79

              Oh get lost. This conversation is over a couple of days ago.

              • DrForbidden

                And yet, you made the effort to reply 14 hours ago. OK. Have a nice week.

  • Bob Obb

    lmao At the people who think giraffes are a spoiler. The launch trailer for TLOU was FILLED with actual spoilers. Besides, people should know better than to watch trailers these days.

    • Zackasaur

      It IS a spoiler, technically.

      Whether or not you think they’re silly for taking the chance on a trailer is another matter entirely.

      • Sevyne

        Y’all will complain about anything won’t you? Fucking giraffes…I really can’t believe these comments.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          I know, right?

          “OMG! GIRAFFE! SPOILER! SPOILER!!”

          Seriously…? Lol.

        • Zackasaur

          People had a tendency to cry at the sight of them. It’s pretty damn powerful. There is a good reason they didn’t turn up in any of the pre-release trailers.

          But it’s also very typical for remaster trailers to have spoilers, so people should be wary.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            …Why did they cry at the sight of them? You can see monkeys around even before then. What? Is seeing monkeys, living animals as well, not as emotional as seeing giraffes?

            I don’t even.

          • Sevyne

            I very much remember the giraffes being a shown in a preview video around release time. Hold on and let me try to find that video. I believe it was a video of the devs showing the game off to IGN or something.

            Edit: Well, it’s damn near impossible to find it now with it being drowned out by the Remaster stuff and being a year old. I know it’s out there somewhere though, because I remember seeing it.

  • Reda1234

    I have yet to play TLOU. Will probably pick it up considering the praise it’s been getting :).

    • Zackasaur

      You absolutely should! c:

      Avoid spoilers!

  • Elvick

    dat 1080p, the clarity~

  • pixxxelz

    I’m buying this for the multiplayer, I need a good multiplayer game on my ps4 asap

    • Zackasaur

      Well, this one is a lot better than good. lulz

      • pixxxelz

        xD i know this is wishful thinking but I hope stats and unlocks from the ps3 version carry over.

        • Zackasaur

          Haha, very wishful thinking. It’s possible, though… But I wouldn’t hold my breath. They might want this to be a fair and fresh start, which is understandable.

          EDIT: I’m not sure I’ll be playing this online, but you have a Riku avatar, so you must be cool. Feel free to add me on PSN. Darth_Xehanort.

          • pixxxelz

            Sure thing, I’m not sure what time I’m gonna be online tho so feel free to add me instead my psn is: chiquili59

            • Christyr

              Can I add you too? :3

              PSN: Christer_Belaqua

              • pixxxelz

                Of course ^^

        • Speedo Redempteur

          The stats from PS3 multiplayer won’t carry over. It’s been confirmed already on the PS blog.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Agreed.

  • bloodiOS

    Anti-aliasing seems really good there.

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    Those spoilers, SHEESH, could have picked a different moment. (I’ve beaten the game already >>; )

  • blank059

    Lol

  • Zackasaur

    This game deserved even more than it got. lol

    But your comment would -usually- be correct.
