The Last of Us: Part I is by and large a very 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 costs $69.99/£69.99, which is quickly becoming an industry standard. It's pretty darn steep, and left a sour aftertaste on what should've been a straightforward release.
Things have complicated a little more now that the PC version has been dated. It's coming on 3rd March 2023, and you can pre-order it right now on Steam and Epic Games Store. Fans quickly realised something, though — the game is priced $59.99/£49.99, a whole 10 dollars (or 20 pounds) 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 bit of a kick in the teeth for those who had to fork out the full 70 smackers. Many would argue the remake shouldn't have cost the full premium in the first place, so they might take issue with the port going (relatively) cheap.
A weird one, this. At the time of writing, Returnal has also been confirmed for PC but no price has been announced yet. It'll be interesting to see if that also comes under the SRP of the PS5 version.
