When Joel Met Ellie: The Last of Us Retrospective

Fred Dutton's Avatar Posted by SCEE Blog Manager

So, we’re just a day away from the PS4 launch of The Last of Us Remastered, the ultimate edition of Naughty Dog’s phenomenal post-apocalyptic survival epic. We talked you through Factions multiplayer and the game’s brand new Photo Mode last week, but today we’ve got something a little different for you.

Earlier this month we caught up with Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson (who played Joel and Ellie, respectively) here in London, and pointed a camera at them as they reminisced about the three-year-long process of making The Last of Us. It was a real pleasure to hear these two fantastic actors share anecdotes and insight — check out the video above for singing, swearing and feels aplenty…

I love these videos. You can really tell the bond they have is genuine and it comes through in the game. Can’t wait to replay the game on PS4

Agreed! These two are so talented. I wish the musical ending was added as an extra in the PS4 version!

This was excellent and I must say I’m not huge on music in video games, but damn…that music! It’s just perfect. I cannot wait to play through this again on the PS4 starting tomorrow night! Oh yeah! Thank you Sony and Naughty Dog for delivering this masterpiece!

Have never played the original on the PS3 (I know I know, shocking. xD) and can’t wait to check out this remastered gem on the PS4 tomorrow!

Without Baker and Johnson I don’t think the game would’ve been as great as it was. Those two just had such chemistry when voice acting their roles in the game. Can’t wait to play this tomorrow. May play Left Behind dlc first as I didn’t do that add-on on the ps3.

Love the Last of Us (2nd fav. game of all time after the MGS series). Just want to say (in case some SONY guy will listen), that it is a slap in the face to your dedicated fans who bought the PS3 version to not even offer even a TINY discount on the the PS4 version of The Last of Us. Not about the money, it’s about the principle. You know fans will buy the game twice, why not show those dedicated fans some love though? Bad business / PR, that’s all – when you could get the opposite (positive) PR instead.

@#14 if you go to Gamestop they are offering 50% off trading in the old version…I paid off mine yesterday for $25 bucks…so worth the upgrade.

Please release a physical copy for ORESHIKA: TAINTED BLOODLINES!

And also make a Special Physical Edition for Soul Sacrifice Delta and release it for the holidays!

I can’t and won’t so please, don’t try to convince me to pick them digitally!
