Just going through the Warehouse mailer and noticed TLOU Remastered edition (The one that got released today) is $75. $20-$25 cheaper than most/all other retailers I think.

Noel Leeming also have it at that price, and Dick Smith have it for $1 less. Surprisingly Mighty Ape are charging $99, but if you ask them to price match they probably would.

For any PS4 users who didn't experience this on PS3, I highly recommend it. It was my favourite game of the last generation.

I have heard great things about this game. I never owned a PS3 but do own a PS4 so will be giving it a shot eventually.

Finch: I have heard great things about this game. I never owned a PS3 but do own a PS4 so will be giving it a shot eventually.


If you love your games with strong narratives, then you should definitely check it out. Naughty Dog are the masters at weaving story and gameplay, and this is their best effort yet.

And despite it being initially designed for the previous generation, it was looking pretty damn slick on the PS3, so I imagine that the remastered version will hold its own on the PS4. I'd probably even consider it the best game on the PS4 currently, with the obvious disclaimer being I've only played the PS3 version. In order for this to not hold true, Naughty Dog would've had to made some serious missteps when porting it to the PS4.

I went down to nearby The Warehouse and grabbed a copy... There are a few in stock still.

Few recent reviews on the remastered version, the verdict is the 60FPS is great, and Photo Mode is nice, you can turned down to 30FPS to get better shadowing, and it's in full 1080p.

Noel Leeming is part of The Warehouse Group, hence same price.

Giving a price match a go now... will let you all know whether it's successful.

I played this game and kept thinking.. What are they going on about. It's a decent game, hardly anywhere NEAR the best game I've played even last year!

How much will they match? Seeing that it's $75 and I can get to it and grab it, I opted for that option in the end, rather than asking for price match, order, then wait.

I'm not sure how much they'll match. I already had a preorder with MA so naturally I don't want to grab a second copy at retail :)

I'm pretty sure that it's only for PS4; it is in effect a PS4 version of the PS3 game (but making better use of the PS4 hardware).

Ah I see, just price-match to get the same price whilst waiting for it to be delivered?

(Couldn't tell you're trolling or being serious - as the title does specifically mentioned "PS4")

It's for PS4, it has a few extras like Left Behind side-quest and few map packs.

just setup an US PSN account, buy $50 voucher from amazon, redeem $50 voucher to US account, buy game for USD$50 from psn.  sure if you want a disc, you can't but, USD$60 for a new AAA game is a lot better than local NZD$108 or whatever prices they are charging.
