A graphically overhauled version for the PlayStation 5 was recently released with The Last of Us Part 1. However, fans who have ordered the Firefly Edition are not very happy with it. Sony probably saved in the wrong place here and now criticism is pouring down.
The Last of US Part 1 buyers will receive game in dented packaging
With The Last of Us Part 1, Sony has given the game a graphical overhaul. The story and chapters are the same, but the graphical update for the PlayStation 5 attracts numerous buyers. In this country you pay 74.99 euros for the game (view now at Amazon) – an expensive pleasure, but it’s even more expensive.
In the US there is still the Firefly Edition. This costs $99.99 and was sold exclusively through PlayStation Direct. Now, after the release of the game, the pre-orders are being delivered, but many players are reporting about it Goods that arrive damaged due to inadequate packaging.
Numerous pictures are published on portals such as Twitter. These show that the cardboard sleeves that contain the game and the extras are only packed in thin mailing bags and accordingly dented and crumpled are.
“Let’s try that again… This is how my $100 Collector’s Edition was delivered by PlayStation. As a collector and a big LoU fan, this is very disappointing,” wrote Twitter user Ains, for example.
He also reports that he has contacted support. There would be no option for a replacement. Instead, he was offered a 20 percent coupon toward future purchases and the opportunity to return the game.
By the way, The Last of Us Part 1 is also one of our Must Plays for September 22:
The Last of Us Part 1 for PlayStation 5: Scalpers have struck here too
Scalpers aim to buy products and then sell them for a profit. They tend to go for hard-to-find or limited-edition items this includes the Firefly Edition of the new TLoU game.
What normally costs $99.99 in the US is now available on portals like eBay sometimes offered for six times the price. In Germany, too, you have to dig deep into your pocket and expect high shipping costs.
Whether it’s worth it, however, is another question. The Firefly Edition includes The Last of Us single-player full story, Left Behind chapter, steel book case, comic book reprint and skins, but must be redeemed by August 2025 (Source: PlayStation Direct).
