Maybe good news for waiting users!

The Last of Us Remastered edition will release at first half of the year in korea. It means this will be released until june. This is confirmed by Sony Computer Entertainment Korea.

And Dekamori Senran Kagura, Freedom wars, and The Legend of the heroes: Trails in the flash also confirmed to korean localize and release at first half of the year.

We could get these titles soon enough!
One of the bigger webshops here, in the Netherlands, mentions a June 30 release date. Now, that could be a placeholder - but usually, they clearly state that it is a placeholder. But right now, there is no mention of a placeholder at all.

So, who knows... maybe, June.

New patch coming tomorrow, IGN says -

The patch, which is slated to be released within the next 24 hours, is numbered 1.07, and comes in at 151 megs. Most importantly, it adds the "Grounded Difficulty" to the single player campaign, a mode "for the toughest of the hardcore," with "super aggressive AI."

Thought the grounded mode only came with the DLC. Is IGN wrong or did I misunderstand?
 
some new info posted by Gruenel in the EDGE 267 thread:

Videogamer has some tidbits

"We brought in all the hi-res models, and then it's on par with what you saw in the cutscenes," Druckmann said, speaking about the upcoming PS4 release with EDGE. "There's an improved lighting model. After that, we started looking across the board; enemies look a little blurry up close, so that was pretty easy. We ramped those up and saw a pretty significant difference.

"Our cinematics are now running at 1080p and 60fps, and that involved rendering them all from scratch," he continued. "It's interesting that now [instead of a technical bottleneck], the bottleneck is 'Can we fit all this on the disc?'"

I like that the cutscenes were re-rendered. Too few developers bother with that... in fact, I can't even think of another example where the cutscenes were redone. Granted, though, in some cases it's probably not feasible, especially with older titles (e.g. the original assets/scripts may have been lost to time).
 
It's a little disconcerting that they're already having trouble fitting a game on a Blu-ray disc. I hope they don't compress the cutscenes to hell because of that.

I was saying just the other day about this - gotta be the only gen that there wasn't a storage capacity increase. Expect we'll get bits of games coming as downloads soon enough.

Playing Injustice last night on the PS4 and it was a little embarassing. The cutscenes are letterboxed and look like butt, but then the gameplay is smooth and sharp. Weird.

I wonder why they didn't go with a BDXL compatible drive in the PS4, is it that much more expensive than a regular drive?

Weren't the cutscenes for FFX redone in the HD remaster?

I was a little surprised that Sony didn't end up putting a BD-XL drive in the PS4 for the sake of future-proofing. When the PS4 was announced and Sony was hesitant to commit to final specs I was convinced that it'd happen at a later date, but it never did.

Seems so!
