Original Story: The official Sony Entertainment Network store has revealed The Last of Us: Remastered for PlayStation 4.
A banner currently on the store’s front page lists the title for $59.99. However, clicking on the banner takes you to a “Page Not Found” notice. Sony is still yet to officially announce a PS4 port of the title, despite numerous rumors.
Last month, Sony Eurasia executive Sercan Sulun told Turkish CNN that a PlayStation 4 version of Naughty Dog’s PS3 title would be released this summer and include the game’s Left Behind DLC that released back in February.
When questioned about the possibility of a PS4 port, a Sony representative said: “At no time have we announced that The Last of Us is coming to PS4 and therefore, have nothing to say on the subject.”
