The Last Of Us Remastered Discount for PS3 Players Possible, Grounded Mode Included; No Co-op Coming, Ever

Today Naughty Dog detailed the Grounded Bundle DLC for The Last of Us, and Community Strategist Eric Monacelli also answered a few relevant questions about The Last Of Us: Remastered for PS4 in the comments sections of both the North American and European PlayStation Blogs.

Monacelli Mentioned on the European Blog that a business model to offer a discount to PS3 owners on the PS4 version is being considered, much to the joy of those that asked for it:

We’re looking into the business model for all this and will post about this once we have input from all regions.

Moving on to the North American blog, he also specified that Grounded Mode difficulty will indeed be part of the package on PS4.

It’ll be included. Grounded Mode difficulty is part of the PS4 version.

Quite a few were holding hope that the PS4 release of the game would bring new DLCs, and in particular one dedicated to a co-op mode, but Monacelli put an end to such hopes.

We’ve said a few times now that co-op won’t be coming. Factions mode isn’t about that.

Finally, we also learn something more about a possible “double part” weekend and about the number of triophies included with the new mode.

Double Parts weekend sounds like a good idea. We’ll see if we can get one going at some point soon.

As for the number of trophies, we’ll be talking about them soon. It’s not a ton but it’s just enough to be challenging that’s for sure!

Honestly, I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one that would have loved a co-op mode, but looks like it wasn’t to be. Maybe we’ll get one for The Last of Us 2… You know you want to, Naughty Dog.

    I don’t mind paying full price for this game again, it deserves my money however I hope PS3 owners can get a discount and take advantage of that if they can work it out.

    giuseppe. trophies not triophies. i geuss the lack of sleep comes to you again.
    we never wanted a co-op mode. at least i didnt. but i dont mind to pay for this game. naughty dog deserve all my money. even if they dont include the ground mode as a part of the package , i still buy it.

    • You “geuss” ? Looks like you need to sleep a little too lol

      • Delsin Rowe

        ha ha, im using my tablet and this happend

  • Hogwild333

    I probably won’t buy it again unless there is a steep discount for PS3 owners. I still haven’t finished it yet but it is at the top of my backlog. Co-op would have been great but oh well.

  • PhantomVash808

    The only way this would work is if Last of Us PS3 owners also have the season pass because the PS4 version contains all the material of the PS3 game plus the season pass content.

    • Raven Nafariea

      That is a good idea but not everyone bought a season pass tho with their game. I know I didn’t. I was holding out for the PS4 version in order to get the DLC with that plus I never played the game online. They should have someway where you can mail in a receipt or something as well. Figuring out how to do this has been a problem for a really long time, I am surprised they haven’t figured out how to solve this problem yet.

    • mobkingDC123 .

      depends tho they can pay a difference let say its 30 for those that didnt get the season pass and 20 for those that did

  • Modified Soul

    considering people could sell the PS3 version and then buy the PS4 version, i imagine the discount should be at least the value of a 2nd hand copy or close enough to it ?

  • Raven Nafariea

    Just noticed has this listed as a release date for June 20th so yay!!!

    • Gamist

      Ellie, you’re everywhere! Where’s Bill?

      • Raven Nafariea

        Ever since his boyfriend died he has been a complete downer =(

        • Gamist

          I thought he had a manly wife? 😛

          • Raven Nafariea

            Oh, I thought Bill was the wife? hehe

  • You are flat out wrong

    This would boost the chances of me picking this up on day one.

  • megablast16

    They’re only looking into a discount at the moment but either way I’m not buying it again. Played it, loved it but let’s move on, new games please.

  • Johnnie

    Coop would ruin this game, IMO.

    • Stefan Eckhardt

      How would a horde mode in Factions ruin this game?

      • Johnnie

        I wasn’t talking about horde mode (even though I find it extremely repetitive) as much as I was the coop campaign idea everyone keeps clamoring for. 2 player campaign for TLOU would take all the atmosphere and tension out of the game the way it is currently built.

  • I don’t understand these modes, can someone explain them to me?

  • SskHannibalXKarma

    Hell YEAH!
    I loved this game so damn much, I played it on the old PS3 PHAT (I never upgraded…) And it made my machine extremely loud… I had to put on headsets…It also freezed on me too.
    Now that I have a PS4 I can’t wait for this.

  • Alexander Petrov

    I wonder when i buy the last of us remastered for ps4 could i play with my ps3 friends together on it
