VG247: Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has killed off any chance of a 2012 launch for The Last of Us, telling VG247 it won’t launch this year.
that's a good thing because I need a break from all the gaming. I just need a much more spread game release.
No no no. I was really hoping for a release this year! Damn it :(. I didn't get to watch the Sony Press Conference but if The Last Of us would have released this year, they would have told us during The Last Of Us segment. Oh well. Gives them more time to make this game more amazing then it already is!
Well fuck you if you need a break from all gaming go update your blog. God I thought this was actually coming in 2012 this is bad.
Seems fair. It was announced just 6 months ago...
Well their are a lot of high quality multiplats releasing this year anyway so ill be occupied to the max already though the tLoU would have been awesome if it released this year
my want list for 2012 Amazing Spider-Man Sleeping Dogs Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Borderlands 2 Resident Evil 6 Assassin's Creed III Halo 4 but the things i'm most hyped for are all in 2013: BioShock Infinite God of War: Ascension Last of Us Beyond Soul Sacrifice NiNuKuni
Christ, It is a good time to be a gamer.
NiNoNuni* ;) And i'd have to agree with most of what you said on those lists, minus Amazing Spider-Man, Resident Evil 6, Soul Sacrifice, and I haven't really played much of GoW to get excited for Ascension. I mean I have BOTH HD collections.... but... yknow. And i've finished GoW1
So whats the big PS3 game this year then?
dust514 baby woo
I think Battle Royale and Beyond are q4 releases.
Good question, there are a lot of decent ones like Dust 514, Battle Royale, LBP Karting, Sly Cooper 4, Ratchet and Clank FFA but nothing really BIG IMO
Sadly there is nothing for me on the PS3 this year. Even the crappy 360 at least has Halo 4.
Damn That was my #1 game for this year.
aww man! that sucks :/ So no PS3 exclusives will release 2012?
You mean other than the bunch that were already released? No, I guess not. Luckily, there's lots of great third party stuff for this year!
Wait!!!!! Sly Cooper! How could I forget? I can't wait for that game!
Well I think both Dust and Playstation Allstars release this year on the Q4. Not 100% though. There must be some other games as well.
apart from twisted metal, starhawk, sorcery, Datura, Yakuza, MLB the show, journey, the ps3 has no exclusives.
Okay, Sony is screwed for 2012 is confirmed. Their lineup ist just really really bad. You can't compete a holiday season with PSABR and LBP Karting against Halo 4, Forza Horizon and Dance Central 3. If MS cuts the price this year (for the first time since 2008!!!) Sony is in big trouble. The funny part is that Q1/Q2 2013 will be pretty crowded. Gears of War Judgement, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Tomb Raider, God of War Ascension and maybe the last of us. Q4 2013 will be the time PS4 and Xbox 3 will be released.
really? Forza is irrelevant and nothing to worry about. Horizon ll be lucky if it cross 150k mark first week. Most people who play halo, bought 360 by now, might push some hardware, nothing too much. These ar enot new ips. This is end of gen, so effect of game releases are small. Price cut d help more sony than 1 big title. Advertising ac3, fifa with ps3 might help just as much. All stars, sly, lbp karting is not big but not bad either.
Forza outsells Twisted Metal, Starhawk, Ratchet & Clank, Heavy Rain, MAG, Socom, Motorstorm, Resistance 3 and a couple of others - are these titles irrelevant as well? Halo 4 will move hardware like every Halo before. I can't believe you come up with "new ips" as an argument. These new IPs are Nintendo ripoffs, so obvious that Sony themselves admit it. http://i46.tinypic.com/jt6j... (look at the tags!) Do you want Sony to cut the price again? That is what they did last year! Every year Sony has to cut the price to stay competitive and try to catch the 360 while MS has not cut the price since 2008. Of course MS is making millions with the Xbox 360 while PS3 is in trouble to break even. And don't come up with last quarter results for the EDD, that was due to the Nokia payment. Advertising CoD, Halo 4, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil 6 and a 360 pricecut will make this year a Xbox year. Just like 2011. "Microsoft’s entertainment division, which includes the Xbox, posted a 45 percent sales gain to $8.91 billion in the fiscal year that ended in June. The Xbox 360 outsold Nintendo Co. (7974)’s Wii and Sony Corp. (6758)’s PlayStation 3 in 2011, and also sold better than any other TV-connected devices, including DVD players and home-theater systems, Dennis said." http://www.bloomberg.com/ne... And @Rockmanll7 check the developers who did not present anything for MS. Rare, Crytek (Ryse), 2nd Team of lionhead, Turn10, BigPark, MS Vancouver, Good Science Studios, MS Soho, MS Victoria are all working on Xbox 3 titles. These are just the exclusives. Games from Bungie and Respawn were not shown either. I bet they are working on games with Xbox 3 / PS4 in mind.
"These are not new IPs" Yeah but...at least they're exclusives. Sony is screwed this year. They're in the exact same position as MS last year...although one could argue that 2011 MS>2012Sony thanks to Gears. I love Sly but C'mon. This is unacceptable and it's not the end of the gen...unless you know something we don't.
Your system launch dates are wrong, neither MS or Sony will announce their system at E3 and release it that Fall. The fact that neither console was at this E3 confirms that the next gen will begin in 2014 (which ties in with a rumor of Halo 2 Anniversary being a Xbox 3 launch title).
im not worried ive got plenty to play make the game the best game ever this is new for naughty dog give them time u guys got uncharted 3 last year
Thats dissapointing, so this is the first year that I won't have bought a PS3 exclusive...*sigh* well at least ND have more time to polish this up because I'm sure this will be amazing. I guess that means I have TLOU and Beyond: Two Souls to look forward to next year.
Wow, I think this is the first year since 2008 where Xbox has a better lineup of games than PS3.
Only for this year. Next year it'll be The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls up against Gears of War: Judgment. Then that will be it for this gen.
You forgot the next Forza that is being made by Turn 10.
Didnt the ps3 already released a lot of exclusives this year already though? unless ur just referring to this holiday season.
You can really tell its the end of the console generation. Who expected Last Of Us to release this year? I figured it would be the God Of War 2 of the PS3. I doubt anyone wants them to rush the game? I'd prefer a flawless performance from the game.
well i guess the last of us and god of war will have to contend for GOTY for 2013.
It's a bit of a pity that a lot of people here are brushing off Sly 4 as if that is also coming out in 2013 rather than this fall. If it is anywhere near as good as Sly 2 then we're in for a treat. But anyway I'm really not that bothered that TLU isn't coming out until next year if it means a more polished and complete game. I'll have enough multi-platform titles and other PS3 exclusives like Sly and Starhawk (which I still haven't bought) to keep me busy.
I knew 2011 was too good to be true. Sucked up all the outstanding releases and now what's left for 2012? Early 2013 is already jammed up but there's nothing coming down the pipe for Sony this fall. It's almost Xbox-like except Xbox has their Flagship franchise to look forward to while PS3 has squat......oh...and multiplats..whoopty doo...
2012 will still be great but this really just shot it down. Me along with a ton of people I am sure were really pumped to play this game this year. All I can say is hopefully it comes out really soon into 2013.
Some of you really expected a 2012 release? Really? I guess many didn't listen to what Naughty Dog said: "we're not pegging ourselves to any specific release date". I knew once those words were spoken, 2013 would be the time it released. I'm thankful that Naughty Dog is taking their time and not succumbing to the whiners of the internet. These games need their stuff carefully done, especially a title with as much riding on its success as The Last Of Us. If you need exclusives to play (and then want to claim Sony's don't sell), stop typing and go out and buy the ones already available in 2012.
The last of us better not release November of 2013. thats way too long from now!!! I cant wait that long. I really hope it comes out early 2013 like around when God of war Comes out.
According to some of you, the year is only christmas. You could tell by the demonstration that The Last of Us is a far larger and more ambitious title than Uncharted so clearly it will take longer to develop.
