Timing of release and PS4....

36 replies 682 views Edited Feb 2, 2013

Wondering if anybody else out there is re-thinking buying the Last of Us with news that Sony will be cranking out the PS4 before the end of the year....?  It sounds like it will be released later this year based upon some reports I just read....

 

Personally, I'm just not sure I want to spend muc hmore on PS3 games if a PS4 is coming soon....I'll probably just keep playing Uncharted for a few more months until the new PS4 is launched in the fall.....

 

Anybody else have any reservations?  I mean, I wonder if Naughty Dog gave an thought to making the Last of Us a launch title for the new PS4......Or maybe they are already at work on an Uncharted 4......Which would also be a great launch title....

 

I'm kinda torn....Have been looking forward to TLOU....But also will probably try to get the PS4 as soon as it's out if there are any decent games available....So I just don't know if I want to drop another $60 for a game I'll probably only play for a few months.....

 

I just think the release is now poor timing....They should've had this game out around Christmas instead of in May....

Or you can just rent it and then buy the PS4.

I don't buy new systems at launch so it doesn't change how I feel about the release of The Last of Us.

There's always bound to be issues, etc. Waiting a month or so can help you make a better decision of what to purchase after the community reacts to it.

I'm getting both. I hope the PS4 is what they announce. (90% of people say so) so I can preorder it asap. I don't want to wait 3 days in line again like I did with the PS3.

I waited in front of my local best buy for 6 whole days, and I was 6th in line!

I waited at a Walmart.  The police had told us the store was only getting 5 PS3's and I was worried. Then when the day came, the store only had 10 systems and I got one. I still have the receipt from 2006. lol It's all faded out and you can barely make out the print.

I really dout the PS4 will be released this year. I'm thinking a reveal at E3, and an release in Q1 2014 at the earliest...hell GTA5 isn't coming out until Q4 of this year, why would rockstar make a last gen-game?

The console is expected to be released just under a year from now and that's putting you off getting a game? Seeing as TLoU is released in May, that gives you approximately 6 months to enjoy it.

Plus, who's to say the PS4 won't be backwards compatible? You'll be able to use the current Move controllers with it, so I expects games will work too.

^ I highly doubt it will be backwards compatible. The PS4 is likely to be made up of 'off the shelf' components and so will be similar in structure to current PCs. The PS3, on the other hand, has a very unique architecture. Simply put, it would cost Sony too much to emulate PS3 games on PS4
