The Last of Us Remastered price drop announced ahead of releaseWritten by: / / 2 Comments
The chance to see Naughty Dog’s latest technical and storytelling masterpiece on a new console with new features and new visuals is great not only for fans of the original release of The Last of Us on PlayStation 3, but for anyone looking for good reasons to keep their PlayStation 4 humming, too.
Ahead of the game’s release at the end of July (and the beginning of August), Sony has announced a Last of US Remastered price drop reducing it from full price to… a little less than that.
Originally announced as a full price $60 game, The Last of Us Remastered is now available to pre-purchase for $50 on PlayStation Network and Amazon.com. Amazon.co.uk also seems to have reduced the price a touch, but South African retailers including Kalahari, TakeALot and BT Games have no prices posted up just yet, so we’ll have to wait and see if we’ll enjoy a cut.
According to Sony’s Adam Boyes, if you pre-ordered The Last of Us Remastered ahead of the price drop, you’ll be refunded soon. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Boyes wrote:

Why is a Last of Us Remastered price drop important? Despite all of the work and extras going into the PlayStation 4 version of the game, those of us who have already bought and played the game would be better served being able to pick up what is essentially the same experience for a reduced price.
There were reports doing the rounds a few weeks ago alluding to some sort of discount for Last of Us PS3 owners, but nothing has yet been confirmed.
Will you be buying The Last of Us again on PS4, or playing it for the first time in just over a month?
