$70 is a stretch for a game that's been on the past 2 generations of PS consoles. I was thinking it would be $50 at most like the Uncharted Collection. A masterpiece of a game no doubt, but, that's still asking for a lot. I'll hold off until it's on PC.

The fact that they're selling this for $69.99 is cheeky as hell. It says built from the ground up but a single look at the environments shows its clearly using many old assets as a basis. Looking great none the less, but overpriced.

Should be bundled together with TLOU part 2 for $69

Been waiting for this. Was going to replay the game but then heard of a remaster being made so I held off. I'll get it for PC this time around.

They are releasing this to coincide with the TV series. And not long after they will make the PS5 remaster of part 2 and then after that, part 2 will also come to PC.

Call me a sucker but I'm sold. I'm guessing the old Factions content is also being remade and lumped into Factions 2. Hope we get that next year.

Does it look nicer? Sure. But I gotta say that nothing shown in this trailer really justifies rebuilding it from the ground up, it mostly just seems like... well, the Last of Us.

First off it looks much much better that a lone justifies it IMO. You might have been fine with the version that was released but I'll always take better graphics. On top of that the TV show is coming out and if the show blows up so will the game. That's what happened with The Witcher 3 and it's clearly the move Sony is making with their game franchises. They want to use TV to bring new audiences to their games. When you do that you want the best version available to really impress people.

I'd have to disagree with it looking "much much better", even the original still looks good and the remaster looks great. This is a step beyond that for certain, but to my eyes the "graphical leaps" between consoles are getting less and less pronounced. I'd also disagree strongly with a graphical improvement being enough reason in itself to fully remake a game, but yea it's a matter of taste. And obviously yes, they are doing it because of the TV show, but that has no real connection with the game needing or not needing to get rebuilt from scratch.
