The Last of Us coming to PS4 this year, says Sony Turkey – rumour [UPDATE 2]

Thursday, 27th March 2014 00:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The Last of Us arrives on PlayStation 4 in northern summer, according to Internet translations of a comment from Sony Turkey. Thursday, Sony issued a statement denying the game was announced for PS4, and today, March 29, a Spanish retailer has posted the game online.

Update 2

Spanish retailer XtraLife has posted The Last of Us: Complete Edition on its website. Pre-orders come with with a green pack with the game’s logo on it. The site has it listed for a June 19 release. We’ll mail Sony again on the matter. Thanks, AGB.

Update 1

Sony has issued a statement to Eurogamer with a representative stating it has not announced The Last of Us for PS4.

“At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject,” said the firm.

You can read the original story below.

Original story

According to NeoGAF and various other sources, PlayStation Turkey vice president Sercan Sulun confirmed the PS4 port of The Last of Us on Turkish television.

Sulun is said to have said that a sequel for The Last of Us is not on the cards “right now” before mentioning the port.

“I can say that first game will be released this summer for PS4 as a physical and digital copy, with enhanced graphics,” he reportedly added.

The port is expected in northern summer, again according to unofficial translations.

You can view the video here; the comment is said to occur at around 36 minutes.

Nobody on the VG247 crew speaks Turkish and the report has not been confirmed by Sony, so apply the usual amount of salt. It’s also worth noting that various PlayStation executives around the world have been chatty but incorrect in the past; PlayStation France is notorious for it.

Naughty Dog has been teasing something big for a while now. We’ve asked Sony for comment.

Thanks, Johnny.

    I call BS. This port will totally kill the point of PS Now.

    @dtyk That would imply Now had a purpose in the first place. It doesn’t. It’s redundant tech.

    Not sure I buy it, but if it’s true it’d definitely be a good thing for potential PS4 owners that didn’t own a PS3, but wanted to play the game.

    Personally I’d probably double dip if the game was a decent enough upgrade on the PS3 version of the game.

    Hmm, your talk of PlayStation Now is interesting. Maybe that’s what he meant… although the enhanced graphics bit would suggest otherwise. Unless that refers to optimisation for streaming.

    “We haven’t got enough exclusives this year. Let’s just part something.”
    Joking.
    Good for the ones who hadn’ got a chance to play it on the ps3

    Well going off forums, its probably the most demanded port behind GTAV, so at least theres some market for it.

    The Last of Us in 1080p at 60fps. Holy mother of god.

    And I’m saying this as a PS3 owner. People say graphics / story don’t matter but they are objectively wrong. EVERYTHING matters. The only subjective part is that how much each part of a game matters to each gamers. For me and many gamers, the story, atmosphere and visuals of TLOU mattered more than its own gameplay or gameplay of many other 2013 releases, including Battlefields, Marios, BioShocks and so forth.

    What? The same way films on Bluray kills Netflix?
    Why do gamers have the mentality of either/or? It’s quite sad. Options believe it or not is a good thing.

    @4, you say that about everything new. I don’t think it’ll be the next big thing quite yet but if they market and implement it right it could be successful.

    I don’t think it’ll replace the way we play games anytime soon (even digital download hasn’t entirely replaced physical) but I see no reason that it can’t exist to supplement it.

    Just like vr supplementing the traditional TV experience. No one haso ever said you need to completely replace the standard to be successful.

    Count me in. I’m ready for second play through without the jankiness that came about from stretching the PS3 too far.

    @Michael Ireland As with all technology, I hold my judgement until I see it in action. So I really don’t have anything further to comment on your response.

    I don’t know where this “physical and digital copy” stuff comes from, but I highly suspect, this to just be a misunderstanding. The Last of Us is coming to PS4 through PS Now, this summer, yes. But it’s also coming to Vita and new Bravia TVs.

    @ChristopherJack “You say that about everything new”

    1) No, I don’t.

    2) This is not new tech.

    @1 This would not kill the point of PS Now at all.

    @4 Not sure how you’d call PS Now redundant tech. Streaming games to a multitude of devices and having them work with no physical copy at all is a busniess model that console makers will eventually aim for.

    @Eregol No it isn’t.

    Cross platform parity is. That means multiple devices being able to use the same digital data. Not this outmoded streaming video crap.

    Why the hell would any manufacturer want to DISCOURAGE hardware sells? They WANT you to buy that stuff. The publishers aren’t supporting it either.

    Even Sony understands that it a complimentary service, not a progressive one. Very few people are going to bother with this thing. Most will either play the superior experience on it’s native platform or will have already moved on to the newest stuff.

    Sony has issued a statement, the post has been updated.

    @Michael Ireland
    PS Now will be on Bravia TVs, Phones, Tablets and Vitas, all areas where Sony has a market shares. Where exactly is the discouragement towards hardware sales?

    Updated again. A Spanish retailer has it listed for a June 19 release, and it’s called The Last of Us: Complete Edition.
