It seems almost out of the blue, Sony have decided to drop the price of The Last of Us: Remastered by a whole $10. This will bring the PS4-bound title to $49.99, down from the previously advertised $59.99 price tag.
Sony Vice President of publisher and developer relations mentioned that any digital pre-orders at the previous price will be refunded the full $10 discount, despite rumors that Sony would not offer such a refund. For those wondering, the discount should reach you within the next 5-7 business days.
Some retailers have followed suit with the price change, however many retailers are still listing the physical version of The Last of Us: Remastered for it's original $60 price tag, including Amazon, Walmart and GameStop.
The Last Of Us: Remastered has been set for a release on July 29th this year for the PlayStation 4, so hearing about a price change now is a little odd. Naughty Dog also still seem undecided about any possible promotions or discounts for those that already own the original PlayStation 3 version of The Last of Us.
As the name suggests, The Last of Us: Remastered will take advantage of the PS4's new hardware to make the game look even more detailed, and run even smoother. Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells stated, "The graphical fidelity has been turned up to 11, we've got 1080p, we're pushing the draw distances further, we're creating higher resolution character models, better lighting, better shadows."
