Sony mulls The Last of Us PS4 discount for PS3 owners

"We're looking into the business model."

Sony is considering a discount for owners of The Last of Us on PlayStation 3 who also buy the upcoming PlayStation 4 version.

Writing on the EU PlayStation blog, Naughty Dog's Eric Monacelli responded to a fan question regarding a discount for those who had already splashed out on the PS3 game (and perhaps also a season pass) less than a year ago.

"We're looking into the business model for all this and will post about this once we have input from all regions", he explained.

Some fans have criticised Sony's decision to sell the game for full price on PlayStation 4 - £49.99 in the UK - so soon after the release of the initial game.

As well as including all of the game's DLC, the Remastered edition will also include higher resolution character models and textures plus improved shadows and lighting.

A commentary track from creative director Neil Druckmann and lead actors Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson will also be included.
