Can't wait to get your hands on the new and improved version of The Last of Us running at 60 frames per second and at native 1920 x 1080p on the PlayStation 4? Well, you're in luck because various individuals managed to get their hands on the game early and offer up players a first-hand look at the overhauled PS3 masterpiece from 2013.
Those first 15 minutes are still some of the most harrowing moments of thrilling entertainment that will rattle you right to your core. This game never, ever, ever gets old. I can't properly say that I readily see the difference of the in-game graphics being upgraded since first off, it's on YouTube, and second of all, it's on YouTube.
Rajman GamingHD [via GamePur] is one of the first to put up the footage, offering gamers an intense look at how the award-winning game from Naughty Dog runs on the PlayStation 4.
One of the major problems with YouTube is that first of all, the quality of 1080p doesn't look so great through YouTube's compression, but worse yet is the crime that 60 frames per second just doesn't show up at all... yet. YouTube will be getting a 60fps upgrade soon, but for now we'll all have to settle for the less-than-impressive judder and drops offered by poor YouTube refresh rates.
It's one of the biggest problems for the video above only because the game is actually running at a locked 60hz, but the game's frame-rate is being cut in half to meet YouTube's standard. Eventually we'll see proper videos running at their proper rate... just not right now.
As for The Last of Us Remastered on the PS4, the game looks good enough for anyone looking for an upscaled version of the PS3 seventh-gen classic. Anyone who missed the game because they didn't have a PS3, but really want to get in some game-time with the title since they may have only been stuck with an Xbox 360, Wii or PC, will probably want to check the game out come July 29th.
The Last of Us is about Joel and Ellie as they trek across various states over the course of a year in an attempt to help escort Ellie to a specific destination. The game is classified as a third-person, action-stealth game with horror-survival elements. It sounds like a mouthful but that's because the game takes pride in mixing in a lot of different gameplay elements to keep players on their toes.
Players will have to fight through soldiers, bandits, cannibals and a fungal group of vegetable zombies that are as dangerous as they are visually disturbing.
GameStop is offering a special deal for anyone who trades in their copy of The Last of Us on PS3 toward a copy of the game for the PS4, knocking off quite a chunk of the price. What's more is that the Remastered edition for the PS4 is only $49.99 and it comes with all the DLC that has already been released on the PS3.
