Just wanted to take some time to thank all the professors here teaching us about how opinions differ between individuals and making sure we understand subjective vs objective.Being "worth it" is very relative depending on who you're speaking to and how much they value this game.
I think the hardcore fans and PC gamers will be the real winners here, the latter being a brand new audience who can enjoy a great game in stunning visuals.
I personally have no interest in buying it and I'm not a big fan of them even doing this project in the first place, but it is what it is.
Not a chance b this will be worth the same as Star Field or Gran Turismo 7. Sony is being absurd charging for this a 3rd time at full price
last I checked movies aren’t $70 and yes I hear people say all the time they won’t watch a movie until it lands on free streaming servicesNobody has even played it....
And if you enjoy your time with, sure it's worth. "Value" suddenly becoming the main aspect in gaming is such bullshit. You ever heard someone say they'd rather watch a different movie because it's longer/cheaper?
New?! Thought the engine, AI was being pulled from Last of Us 2. Is that not correct?I disagree.
Why would they charge less for a remake?
3rd time? You didn't get this game remade 3 times sir lol This isn't a re-release of the same game like a port, its a REMAKE. Thats like Rockstar making Red Dead Redemption 1 remake and put it in Red Dead 2's engine and gameplay and really question why its full price. Why the fuck would they give it cheaper just cause the fucking NAME is Red Dead? Its not the same engine, not the same gameplay and clearly not the same quality, thus they have no ode to price it as some remaster or port, they'll charge based on the quality and value of the IP.
I admit, Ratchet remake at 49.99 is a great deal same with SoTC remake, but clearly neither game moved a whopping 20 million plus units. If we have literally remasters like Twilight Prince at full price, a remake like this at full price makes more sense then I think many care to admit. I don't even see why Sony as a publisher should devalue their IP like that when its one of the most awarded games in history and one of the best selling PS titles of all time. They have no ode to do any of that shit with the game in a new engine, new gameplay and new AI. Someone had to be on crack to really think Sony would just give some discount on such a IP.
They didn't for Demon Souls but shit they would for such a AAA blockbuster like this? The fuck? lol

....because they don't cost $70. Value only gets talked about at all in games because they're outrageously expensive. You need to rationalize chucking out $70 on a product one way or another, and one such way, misguided or not, is arguing those $70 must entertain you for as long as 10-20 movies would.Well movies also aren't 20+ hours long. And when picking the movie you want to see, you don't think of the "value", you pick what you think you'll enjoy.
Remakes/rereleases are weird. They are probably worth the price to those who never played it, but for those who played the original it feels like a kick in the teeth. Especially if they paid 60 bucks for the original.
The point is that they’re taking all their hard work from 2 and putting it into this remake and then charging $10 more than they did for 2 (with its new setting, story, music, etc.). It’s not just that they took the engine, but they simply are porting over other aspects such as the AI and gameplay mechanics, and meshing that with the original game.Yes, as in thats not in the fucking original Last Of Us, thus NEW to The Last Of Us 2. Thats like saying FFVII isn't a remake cause Unreal Engine 4 isn't new. RE2 and RE3 remake are not remakes folks as shit, thought the engine was being pulled from RE7 GASP
What fucking game is making a engine brand new for a remake? How many are doing that to argue full price or not? What would that shit even matter so long as its an engine that is a improvement over the original? Demon Souls is one of the few to come to mind and I could be wrong on that lol
Why the fuck would you pay full price for that though? thought the engine was being pulled from creation engine omg /s The fucking irony.
So sir, with all due respect, this is a silly reason to dispute the price of a game as if all games are made with new engines or some shit. Any remake using a current engine vs the original is completely fine by me and fits the full price AAA model if the quality is high. Using the gameplay, AI, engine of the Last Of Us 2 is still new to the last of us 1, just like the RE engine in RE4 remake and gameplay concepts are still new to that remake. As in existed else where, but new to RE4.
And both will be bundled with the ps5 which will then trigger massive meltdowns when those games chart whenever ps5 gets restocked.Because the native PS5 version of 2 will come later around the show's launch and be bundled together, silly.
How dare they?!And both will be bundled with the ps5 which will then trigger massive meltdowns when those games chart whenever ps5 gets restocked.
Typical work needed to produce a brand new game or a sequel to a game:I disagree.
Why would they charge less for a remake?
The NPD sales threads for TLOU remake are going to be very interesting, to say the least.
I'm gonna blow your mind right now... you ready?If remake cost 70$, so how much would it cost if it’s was new game..? I mean if its was actually new game set in new ip… 200$- 300$?
I do suspect Sony will find it difficult to charge full price for their games going forward if people jump into extra/premium. Let the devaluation of games commence!Should be 49.99 and be able to be picked up from super markets at 40 squid or 42 squid and I'd be there day one. No game is worth 70 bones imo and I've managed to get through almost 2 years of owning my ps5 disk and not paying it yet.
Long may it continue.
Doubtful. People won’t wait for the games to hit the sub. Games will only go to the sub once theyre past the evergreen period.I do suspect Sony will find it difficult to charge full price for their games going forward if people jump into extra/premium. Let the devaluation of games commence!
Will be interesting to observe.
True, but there is also the factor of being busy with an endless selection of games - the ultimate backlog.Doubtful. People won’t wait for the games to hit the sub. Games will only go to the sub once theyre past the evergreen period.
Well, I for one always finish my day one purchases. I’d like to believe this is the same for other people but who knows.True, but there is also the factor of being busy with an endless selection of games - the ultimate backlog.
No game is worth $70 when they all go for $60 or less within a few months. Considering it's a re-re-make the price will probably drop fast and hit the $40-50 range after in 4 - 6 months if not earlier, with $30 sales.
