It is beyond obvious that the vast majority of people who complain about thsi remaster have a problem with (even hatred for) Sony. Why?

1. GTA V gets no hate threads. Not only that, but that game has sold like 25m copies and unlike TLOU:R xbox owners did have the chance to play it.

2. No one complains about Game of the Year Editions, which pretty much TLOU:R is (only better). Did editors write articles about Tomb Raider ps4 being a cash grab? No? Why is that?

Anyway, gaming journalism has been and still is all sorts of pathetic. No wonder no one takes it seriously.

GTAV has sold 33M actually, which makes the whole situation even more comical.

Got a retro room? Post it here!

Don't get it. It is just a remaster that would have taken little manpower from Naughty Dogs other games to produce. I'm sure we will see just how happy people are with it when the sales figures come out, I'm looking forward to that day

Yes and just like how anyone who did not have an XBox and/or XBox360 that might own an XBone should be happy that a great Halo collection is coming their way so early in the gen to get them prepared for the next Halo title, which will of course be on the XBone.

I think it's okay for games that are considered GOTG like TLOU/OoT/Halo CE, especially if they have sequels and want to keep people up to date with the franchise (like MCC, the GOW collection, etc).

Halo MCC and TLOU are definitely worthy of such a thing (sales should reflect this), Beyond two souls (for an example) isn't needed IMO



The whole situation is laughable. I don't even take it seriously.

Why should a PS4 version of TLOU exist? Because I haven't played it yet and I fully intend to buy it when I get a PS4. I represent a real segment of the marketplace.

That's it. Period.

If a market exists, the creation of a product that serves that market is justified. Everything else is childish fluff.

Absolutey agree.

Would the game get this much attention if it was name TLoU:GoTY edition. Seems like everyone is nitpicking this game cause of the "remastered" in the titled.

Haters gonna hate



not sure why people are so up in arms about remasters. Let the market decide if there is a place for them or not. There must be some demand for it or they wouldn't be making them...

I'm quoting this for truth.

While I wasn't thrilled with TLoU HD, mainly due to timing and relative effort put into it, it is a game very deserving of HD remakes. When I wrote about HD remakes going overboard before, a lot of people looked at TLoU and wrote it off as me just hating on that title, but the point was there's a lot of "HD Remakes" rumored for games that, quite frankly, don't really justify the effort. Beyond: Two Souls and DmC: Devil May Cry among them.



We will see in a few days, when the UK chart releases, and followed by NPD in 10 days, if this remaster is unecessary.
Everything else is irrelevant.
