PlayStation Is Refunding The Last Of Us Part 2 Remastered Pre-Orders If You Own The PS4 Game

You love to see it.

With The Last of Us Part II Remastered launching today and people’s digital pre-orders finally being available to play, some users have noticed that PlayStation has gone ahead and issued a refund.

The reason for this, is that it’s proactively identified folks who placed a full $74.95 AUD digital pre-order for the game but already owned a digital copy of the original PS4 version of the game, and therefore could have paid the cheaper $15 AUD ($10 USD if you’re in the States) upgrade fee instead.

The message users received reads:

“Thank you for your pre-order of The Last of Us Part II Remastered from the PlayStation Store.

“As an owner of the PS4 digital version of The Last of Us Part II, a digital upgrade to the PS5 digital version will be available at a deeply discounted price on launch day 19/1/24. We don’t want you to lose out on that opportunity so, as a gesture of good will, we have refunded your purchase for the pre-order of the PS5 version of The Last of Us Part II Remastered so that you may purchase the digital upgrade on launch day. Rest assured that by purchasing the digital upgrade, you will also receive any pre-order bonuses included in your original pre-order. The refund amount is paid back to your original payment method.

“This may take up to 60 days to appear on your statement. If for any reason we are unable to issue the refund to your original payment method, the amount will be credited to your PlayStation Network wallet.”

Brodie gave The Last of Us Part II Remastered a 9.5/10 in his review, saying “The Last of Us Part II Remastered might ring up an emotional toll that some aren’t ready to part with so soon after its original launch, however it’s still a worthwhile release thanks in large part to its celebratory behind-the-scene glimpses at how the game came to be. Adding more value to the package is No Return, an excellent, compact roguelike that feels like an apt showcase for the game’s blunt force combat.”
