April 9, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


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.

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:

  • 100 Supply Points (XP) for use in Factions mode
  • Two special bonus skins for Joel and Ellie which will be unlocked after your complete the single player campaign
  • Increased Crafting Speed for use in the Single Player Campaign
  • Increased Healing Speed for use in the Single Player Campaign
  • 9mm Reload Speed Increase Upgrade for use in the Single Player Campaign
  • Rifle Clip Capacity Increase Upgrade for use in the Single Player Campaign

Preorders from the PlayStation Store will also receive:

  • Early Access to the Brawler Survival Skill in Factions Mode
  • Early Access to additional Loadout Points for use in Factions mode
  • Early Access to the Jeep Cap and Surgical Mask for use in Factions mode

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?

Rumors About Preorder Figures for Titanfall and Arkham Knight

March 10, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


Titanfall will launch in just a few hours, so naturally we’re curious about what sorts of sales figures it will pull in—especially with the number of people who seem to be pinning their Xbox One hopes on the game.

According to NeoGAF user Pete “FamousMortimer” Dodd, who claims to have inside information, approximately one million Xbox Ones have been sold because of Titanfall, although the sales for the Titanfall Xbox One bundle were not as high as Microsoft predicted.

He also said that United States preorders of the newly-announced Batman: Arkham Knight currently favor the PS4 over the Xbox One by 4:1.

A one million boost in sales from Titanfall is a good sign for the Xbox One, although the difference in the Arkham Knight figures is rather startling. Of course, these are not official numbers, and although Dodd has a good track record for accurate inside information, keep in mind that these are just rumors until we hear otherwise.

Are you planning to buy Titanfall and/or Arkham Knight? Let us know your thoughts on these two heavy-hitters.
