The Last of Us: Part I is a hugely successful remake of one of Sony’s best games. However, upon launch, one thing left a bad taste in the mouths of its fans: the asking price. The PS5 remake is priced at $69.99/£69.99, which is fast becoming an industry standard. It’s pretty darn steep, and left a sour aftertaste on what should have been a straightforward release.
Things get a little more complicated now that the PC version is dated. It’s coming on March 3, 2023, and you can pre-order it now steam And Epic Games Store. Fans soon realized something, though — the game is only $49.99/£49.99, a full 20 notches less than the PS5 version.
Obviously this is good news for those who will be buying and playing the PC port, but it’s a kick in the teeth for those who had to shell out the whole 70s smackers. Many will argue that the remake shouldn’t have been priced at full premium in the first place, so they may take issue with the port being (relatively) cheap.
A strange one, this. At the time of writing, returns for PC have also been confirmed but no pricing has been announced yet. It will be interesting to see if it also falls under the SRP of the PS5 version.
