Naughty Dog's heavily-anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last of Us will be getting a demo, Sony has announced. Additionally, first access to The Last of Us demo will be given to owners of the upcoming God of War: Ascension.
2013 starting out with a Bang!
it already started with a bang (Ni No Kuni)
@cirran why did you insult me ?!
"why did you insult me ?!" lol, that really made me laugh for some reason ^_^. But yeah, Ni No Kuni and Last of Us, good times to be living in.
MAN!!!!! This is great news, trailers are just foreplay, but demos are almost intimate. Meaning its good to watch, but its always better to play. TLoU is going to be something special from ND
Not interested in God of war: Ascension but would love a demo of The Last of Us.
'BANG... and the dirt is gone' On-topic: Sony are seriously on all cylinders this year. I wont be surprised if they end with a BANG; and the PS4 gets announced/released. I have a feeling this will be a gaming year to remember.
Substitute "Angel Dust" with "The Last of Us" and "smoking" to "playing"
i won't be getting a next gen console until a few years after launch so its great news that sony continue to support the ps3.
Yes yes yes. This would put the naysayers to rest.
This is good news amidst the doom and gloom Watch the movie The Road people and get pumped
The Last of Us has naysayers?! Show me where these fools are, I'll deal with them! Seriously though this year is going to be amazing no matter what you game on. I think I'll remember 2013 quite fondly.
thinking of buying a ps3 for this game or i might just wait for the 4 in any case this game must be played
I hope PS4 can do BC.
PS4 will have a service that when you insert the PS3 game you will be able to stream it from the cloud. There will be a PS3 app on the XMB.
Definitely one of my most anticipated titles this year and that's really saying something seeing that this year is already looking incredible. It seems like no matter what systems you game on, you have something to look forward to. Fire Emblem, Bioshock Infinite, Rayman Legends, The Wonderful 101, Monster Hunter, Beyond: Two Souls, Ni No Kuni, Sly 4 not mention the possibilities of games like The Last Guardian, Monolithsoft's Wii U game, Retro Studios' new Wii U game, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Monster Hunter IV, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney being released in this year. And then there is Sony and Microsoft's new consoles. If you're a gamer, 2013 may very well be one of the greatest years of your life.
DUDE....where is god of war ascension ?!!
@Ezz2013 OMFG what the hell is wrong with me?!! Dammit too late to edit! Sorry bro, I let ya down. I left out a lot to be honest, there's SO much good stuff coming out this year I don't think one comment could contain them all. Let me make it up to ya "God of War Ascension: chadboban is An Idiot For Not Mentioning It Edition" Seriously the game looks amazing, but it is God of War, don't see how we could expect anything less.
this http://www.youtube.com/watc... ....orgasm!
"2013 starting out with a Bang!" For ps3 and nintendo users. Sad thing for xbox..
Pre-ordered God Of War a few days ago. This is a win for me.
I could care less about the GoW game just give me the TLOU demo. ;)
It's funny how long my 360 has been collecting dust in the closet. If I didn't have a PS3 I would feel cheated.
Yea Nintendo definitely did. Glad Sony could join in.
Then once the demo drops, there will be hundreds of stupid articles such as "5 things I loved about the demo" or "10 things they could have done differently". This stupid repetition of gaming has really gotten crazy. Especially the fanboys on this site. You say anything negative towards PS3, you immediately lose your bubbles but say a good thing, you get praised. I hope this site has something bad happen to it and hope it shuts down. There's alot of people here that I know agree with me but don't wanna support me because they will be shunned.
Could very well become 1 of the most downloaded demo's on ps3. The hype is over 9000.
I love how "over 9000" isn't even funny anymore. It's just a figure of speech that means "a lot" now.
Over 9000 people bought Black Ops 2 on launch day. Not a million people. Over 9000 people. :P.
If that's the case then how much do you think the demo being exclusive to God of War: Ascension for at least a few weeks is going to help sales for GoW:A? I reckon it could add around 100K+ sales for people on the fence, not that it needed this demo to be huge as GoW always has been. This cross-franchise promotion is a great idea! Sony refuse to show fuck all about the single player in GoW:A which means there isn't much hype, so at least now it can share some of the hype from The Last of Us.
Rated B for BOSS!!!!
Can't wait to finally play my most anticipated game ever !!!! Well at least a small part of it. Either way I'm excited as hell!!!!!
Ever? Really? We don't know THAT much about it for it to be that hyped. However, Naughty dog is awesome and if the demo impresses me, then I'll have to get it too.
In my opinion everything that Naughty Dog has shown has impressed me a lot. From the gameplay, to the plot, to the characters, and to the graphics/mo-cap, this game looks like pure perfection. Plus, it just feels like my type of game. I like games that focus on the characters and the story as well as having intriguing gameplay. Plus like you said it's NAUGHTY DOG. I LOVED the Uncharted series so chances are I'll love this game too. If the rest of the game is just as good as what has been shown than it will truly be one hell of a game.
My PS3 is ready.
Mare , mare ! Sheep are everywhere !
@lfclee Sheep? This game is clearly quite something from the footage we've seen and since ND are the devs behind it, it will no doubt be a spectacular game. All i see is jealousy, jealousy everywhere !
Same here, and as an owner of both consoles, I feel bad for 360 owners.
Very good news. Not because I need a demo to be convinced to buy it--I know it is going to be an amazing game--but just so I can get a taste of it a little sooner.
I refuse to play it.....since it's a portion of the main game we'll all be playing anyway, why spoil a chapter or so of our main playthrough.
Impossible for it to live up to the hype.
You couldda kept that weak comment to yourself.
You and everyone else are pushing this game like it is the best the PS3 has ever seen. Maybe... but it won't be the number one selling PS3 game or the best score(s) ever. Give it a rest with this love affair for the Last of Us. Anyone that makes a comment against this thing is banished and any comment for it is repped. What a joke.
Difficult I'll agree, but do I think it'll live up to it,... God Yes! Colour me hyped!
Why does it always have to be about sales? What if the person is just generally excited for the gampelay? Be a gamer please...unless it's too difficult to be one.
I finally have a reason to pick up a PS3
You had a thousand reasons to get a PS3.
I have yet to say that for an Xbox360, just saying.
All these dislikes for me picking up a PS3, I THOUGHT YOU PS3 FANBOYS WANT PEOPLE TO GET THE SYSTEM?!?!
NOPE GTA V
The last of "us dollars" in my wallet.
lmao XD nice
especially stoked because i've been planning to buy god of war: ascension since it was announced. the demo is like the cherry on top.
Yes a demo, I can't wait for this
awesome.. Whoever chose a xbox over ps3 this holiday & doesnt have both will be missing out big time this yr
I'm gonna pass. I don't wanna ruin the final game when I play.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say The Last of Us is probably going to be amazing, but there's always that chance. The demo usually starts the player off somewhere in the beginning of the game, so if you do spoil anything, it's early in the game. Atleast you'd know whether the game is good or not. Even if it happens to be a great game, there's also the possibility that this game might not be for you. You might play the demo and realize it's not something you want to play.
I broke down and played the GOW3 demo and I was blown away. I have the same feeling about this game. ND has always come through with the Uncharted franchise (except UN3's multiplayer) so I fully expect them to deliver here. Can't wait, happy gaming!
I want a Beyond Two Souls Demo!!!!
To the haters. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Cant wait to play the demo multiple times to see how the AI changes based on my actions.
Gonna be awesome :)
SONY sucks.They always raped my wallet :-b .Oh man Cant wait for The Last Of Them :)
Excited very very much
I anticipate many complaints about the demo's linearity.
why? its not linear. :)
