After what feels like an eternity, Vice President of Publisher & Developer Relations at PlayStation Adam Boyes has confirmed on Twitter that any pre-order copies of The Last of Us: Remastered will have a final cost that consumers expected to see, after a $10 refund is issued.
Originally placed for pre-order at $59.99 when announced, The Last of Us: Remastered has since dropped in price at retailers and on the PlayStation Store, causing a small internet riot in Sony’s direction when day-one pre-orders were not issued a refund of the excess costs immediately. Reaching out on Twitter to Adam Boyes, consumer Tony K. inquired about the difference in price.

In reply, Adam did what Sony has tended to do best since the beginning of this new console generation – give the people what they want.

This is of course a sigh of relief for all of us who were interested in Naughty Dog’s higher quality re-launch, and it’s great to see Sony sticking with their guns in keeping consumers happy. Let’s just hope that our suggestions for the repair of Sony’s PlayStation Now service can be taken into consideration.
