Sony Considering PS4 Last Of Us Discount For PS3 Owners

Sony and Naughty Dog are bringing The Last of Us to the PlayStation 4, with a special remastered version. The enhanced edition includes commentary from the creative team and voice actors, upgraded visuals, and the game's DLC. It's a nice package, but what if you've already purchased the game? According to Naughty Dog, there's a chance you might get a discount.

The discount talk came after a lengthy post on the PlayStation Blog, which outlined the next DLC, Grounded Mode. A commenter asked about a potential discount, which led to the following response: "We’re looking into the business model for all this and will post about this once we have input from all regions," said Naughty Dog creative strategist Eric Monacelli.

If the company's decided to implement such a deal, it wouldn't be without precedent.

Our Take
I wasn't alone in thinking The Last of Us was the best game I played in 2013, and I've been looking for an excuse to play it again. Being able to do so with the DualShock 4 in hand is tempting, and getting the PS4 version at a discount would probably push me over the edge.
