Digital version of The Last of Us playable during download

10 replies 294 views Edited May 17, 2013
Naughty Dog has told Game Informer that its upcoming survival horror epic The Last of Us will be released digitally through the PlayStation Store on June 14, the same day that the game releases in stores on Blu-ray disc. There's also something special about this simultaneous release.Naughty Dog's creative director Neil Druckmann and The Last of Us game director Bruce Straley told Game Informer that Sony has worked a little magic so that you won't have much of a delay before playing the digital version. The game will be playable once the download hits 50 percent. Sony has promised that, on PlayStation 4, downloadable games will be almost instantly playable while the download carries on in the background.

Whoa!, totally wasn't expecting it to be day one digital & being able to play at 50% downloaded is quite a feat well done Sony.

Well, that came out of no where. Anybody here gonna go digital? I'm sticking with the disk on this one but the 50% thing is pretty cool.

 

I bet sony will announce that they're doing that with all future ps3 releses at E3.

Isnt TLOU gonna be like 35GB or more  to download? I dont see the point of downloading it and waiting for a couple of days to play when I can go buy it at the store, seems more simple :smileyhappy: but its nice to know that it will be digital GJ ND

ND is just trying to take more money from us guys don't fall for their trap!

For all we know this will take years to download.

Heed my opinions, chaps.
