A major controversy cropped up last night as soon as the official price was revealed for The Last of Us Remastered. Rather then the full priced $59.99 that it was listed as before on PSN, it was changed to $49.99 all of a sudden. However, this led to a slew of problems as gamers who had pre-ordered the game on PSN for the original price were being told that they would not receive a refund at all. Luckily, it appears that Sony has changed their tune after all the controversy on the matter.
Through Twitter, PlayStation VP of Publisher and Developer Relations, Adam Boyes, has started responding back to those asking about a refund on The Last of Us Remastered with some very positive news. One such example found himself saying “you should get a $10 refund in the next 5-7 days.” This is a much better alternative to where the biggest PlayStation fans are not being screwed over for pre-ordering in advance. Retailers like Amazon are great at this by having pre-order price guarantees, and it is good to see Sony honoring a similar policy this time, even after initially saying they would not.
The Last of Us Remastered will release for PlayStation 4 on July 29 through both retailers and the PlayStation Store for $49.99.
