It looks like PlayStation Turkey Vice President Sercan Sülün was right after all–The Last of Us IS coming to the PS4 this summer, as The Last of Us Remastered.
This morning, an unexpected sight met the eyes of players who visited the PlayStation Store’s website. The Day 1 Digital Edition of The Last of Us Remaster was boldly displayed, despite no official announcement that it even existed. At the time, the link didn’t work, suggesting the ad wasn’t supposed to be there yet.
It’s not every day Sony’s own store leaks a major announcement.
A few hours later, SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida officially confirmed it.
"SCEA can confirm The Last of Us Remastered is coming to PS4, and we'll be sharing more details with you shortly." – by SCEA PR team

The Last of Us Remastered will include the main game, the Left Behind DLC, the Abandoned Territories map pack, the new Reclaimed Territories map pack, and a director’s commentary featuring Creative Director and Writer Neil Druckmann, voice actor Troy Baker, and voice actor Ashley Johnson. Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson voice Joel and Ellie, respectively.
Sony also announced the preorder bonuses:
Preorders from the PlayStation Store will also receive:
The game will have a resolution of 1080p. Although the frame rate isn’t set yet, Naughty Dog is “targeting” 60 fps.
The Last of Us was a huge success, so this sounds like a smart move for Naughty Dog and great news for fans. If you wanted to play the game but didn’t get a chance, or if you’d just like to play it again with enhanced graphics, now’s your chance. Are you planning to buy it?Tags: confirmation, preorder bonus, preorders, ps4, the last of us

Yesterday, rumors started circulating about a project called Metro: Redux, a collection containing the post-apocalyptic games Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light, remastered for the Xbox One and PS4. These rumors began due to two leaked images, which showed that Metro: Redux would include both games, their soundtracks, artwork, and special packaging.
Deep Silver responded to the leaks, confirming the existence of Metro: Redux. The leaked images are out of date, and we won’t get to see any footage right now, but we should hear an official announcement before E3!
This is great, not only that the Metro games are coming to the next generation consoles, but also that Deep Silver was willing to admit it rather than dance around the topic until it was time for the announcement. In fact, the response even takes that into account: “We could issue a ‘We do not comment on rumour and speculation’ statement and pretend this never happened. They’re pretty boring to read. They’re also pretty boring to write.” Good show, Deep Silver, good show.
Have you played either of the Metro games, and are you looking forward to seeing them in a new form?Tags: confirmation, metro, ps4, rumor, xbox one
