Hey.. whatever they need to polish the game

We still have no idea what the MP for this game is... it might make room for a beta/demo

Also a nice bit of room for me

Since Im getting MGR, Bioshock Infinite, Injustice, God of war... so yeah a nice break so I can have something to play over the summer

And the delay is not as bad as Bioshock Infinite.... I want that game so bad

Quietly delayed? Let's just say if they don't make an announcement, there's going to be a lot of pissed gamers in line at midnight for nothing lol
Septic  +   625d ago
Let ND take their time. A game this promising does not need to be rushed. As agonising as the wait is, the final product will be all the better for it.

Still....the wait is excruciating.

My exam is around the 18th may so for me I think it is for the best. It's only a month though but I get the disappointment.

Don't hit me but ... maybe like RayMan they're delaying the it so it can release on all platforms at the same time? First thing that popped into my head when I read the headline.
TheGamerDood  +   626d ago
I'll wait until ND or Sony confirms. I'll be f'ing pissed if they do.
Hellsvacancy  +   625d ago
So will I, May 7th is birthday, The Last Of Us was going to be my gift to my awesome self, I probably would of wrapped it aswel

Please dont let this be true OR only be true for the US, not EU
Jazz4108  +   625d ago
This game will not be big enough here in las vegss to do a midnight at any of gamestops 45 locations. Gamestop is cutting back and even deadspace three which is multi didnt make the cut.
DigitalAnalog  +   625d ago
Probably they're trying to resolve the "listen" feature which is the ONLY negative aspect that is being noted by both the media and comments. Something ND is very aware of. Almost unanimously everyone agrees that it kills whatever immersion the game tries to set up. Not to mention the split opinions on HUD. I guess was it deeply implemented into the code and it would take a lot of time to redesign the concept.

Zombie Uncharted delayed! Just like GTA 5. Making people wait for the goods.

Amazon still has May 7th as the release date.
aquamala  +   625d ago
The Last of Us is no longer a ps3 exclusive, the ps3 version is done but delayed so the game can go multi platform.

like Rayman Legends

just kidding...
Knight_Crawler  +   625d ago
You MIGHT be right about the multiplatform thing...I am thinking PS3 and PS4.

Makes sense. Sony wants to distance their exclusives away from each other. Ascension needs breathing room to sell, so does The Last of Us.
classic200  +   626d ago
I dont like the idea of delaying it near to the mad pit call E3.
joab777  +   626d ago
I have beem hoping for a good summer game for so long!

It makes sense. Microsoft will use E3 to announce. This will take some of that away and remind ppl how commited Sony is to games. Also, GoW needs room to shine and GTA5 has made it possible to make money in June this year. I cant wait. Its uniqueness may be pseudo launching point for Sony's next gen console and trajectory.
GribbleGrunger  +   626d ago
Perhaps the price drop for the Vita and Ps3 will come in June.
mn21  +   626d ago
i highly doubt ascension is the reason for the delay. sony couldnt have just looked at the calendar and realize the two release dates.

polishing up the game/multiplayer is the more likely situation.
LOGICWINS  +   626d ago
Maybe ND planned the beta for April(Can't be in March since thats God of War's month) and wanted more time to fix any issues people may have with it before the release of the full version..
andibandit  +   626d ago
It makes no sense, the gaming scene will be flooded with Xbox720 articles and other E3 news, this game will drown.

Donnieboi comment has to be the worst fanboy comment I've hear in a while. I cant believe there are people so blinded by a console.

I'm looking forward for the X720 and guess what i will be buying TLOU first day also.

Conzul  +   626d ago
Now I'll have time to play those and maybe Fuse.
supersonicjerry  +   626d ago
They been said it was coming out june 18.
mrprice33  +   626d ago
Not according to almost every other retailer, and this: http://www.forbes.com/sites... and this: http://store.sony.com/webap...
PockyKing  +   626d ago
Original date was May 18
JP1369  +   626d ago
Not to be too much of a stickler, but the original date was May 7th. If true, this would be a 6 week delay.

Edit: Best Buy and Amazon are still showing the original release date. In the case of a delay, does anyone know what the gap usually is between the time pre-order customers are notified and when the info is altered on site?

IWentBrokeForGaming  +   626d ago
Damn, my birthday is May 20th... was really hoping to be enjoying this on my bday! Im disappointed... but ND are my most fav. devs this gen. I can rest assured I'll be playing a quality product when all is said/done!
JP1369  +   626d ago
Now you can just use that birthday money to take a couple days off work to enjoy the game ;)
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   626d ago
haha you are damn clever my friend!... saddly being the manager and only person that does my job, I feel paranoid of not being at work for the sole reason other people will leave it in shambles for me when I get back lol.

I work a lot which is sad, but at the same time I just try to appreciate the fact I do have a job/money when most people would be so fortunate to be in my position. I definatley feel blessed!

Sorry off subject lol. If I can break away from work decent enough... I'll take you up on your idea for sure!
Bathyj  +   626d ago
Theres two reasons the Boss is scared to have time off work.

First the business might come crumbling down, unable to function and go bankrupt without him.

The second is, it might not.
WooHooAlex  +   626d ago
*hyperventilating*
...okay, its okay. Its only an extra month. I can wait, I think.
Bathyj  +   626d ago
1 extra month is still 4 months from now or about 18 weeks.

NOTHING IS OKAAAAAAAY!!
dboyc310  +   626d ago
They just announced the release date. They should have just said June 18 to begin with :/ GAWWWWWWWWEEEE (0.0)
Riderz1337  +   626d ago
Sad news but I am happy they are delaying the game to make it better rather than releasing it early and fixing it with patches. Seems like they would care more for their fans by doing this (If true). One of the problems with Uncharted 3, as stated by co-president Evan Wells, was that they felt forced to finish Uncharted 3 by it's release date and the fact that they announced the release date a year out, "The minute we saw the date on screen we were like, man, I really regret that." It's better that Sony spreads their exclusives out farther apart and that they give Naughty Dog their acquired time to complete the game.
ScubaSteve1  +   626d ago
if thats the case, that means they can fix any bugs/glitches, and have me enough time to save enough money
Sharius  +   626d ago
you know, through i look forward to this game but i really like that delay, because now i can buy the RE: revelation which release in 21/5 now
Bathyj  +   626d ago
NOOOO!!

My birthday is May 7th and I already feel like I'm going to be "sick", or infected is maybe a better word.
nub_cakes101  +   626d ago
May 8 here, and TLOU is my most anticipated game of the year >.<
VonBraunschweigg  +   626d ago
Same here, already started coughing at work, guess we'll have a few extra weeks to work on our clicking. I can already distinguish my fridge from my woodchipper.
Soldierone  +   626d ago
NOOOOO! Then again, Ill have money for Tomb Raider then lol
megamanX2  +   626d ago
So sonys only good game is delayed, and by the time it comes out nobody will care as usual.
smashcrashbash  +   626d ago
Their only good game? No one will care? Are you high or something? Summer time is the one time when new games are most scarce. That means LTOU will be one of the few games launching and it won't have any strong competition. Translation, more sales for LTOU. Please if you have nothing constructive to add,just don't say anything at all.

lol so true, and these idiots think there are better games on this poor system? I actually meant their only game worth mentioning retards.

"That one game literally craps on any game on your favorite system or by your fav. company in the last twenty years. Megaman lol bwahhhh go back to your troll cave to play "Its me marioooo" Same old stale games smh lol"

lol how exactly do you know what i like? just because i dont waste $60 on some shit game and systems doesn't mean anything. Sonys games are like bad movies you pretty much only pay attention to them once and never again.

P.S : Speaking of mario it happens to be a proven game that actually sells millions if you know what that means, and all the last of us is a poor mans uncharted which is a ripoff of another successful game that I'll let you think about.

Delay it I dont care there is plenty of stuff coming out anyway and I need to save money
DarkZane  +   626d ago
It's not delayed. Why are you people trusting bestbuy as a source?

Not only neither Sony or naughty Dog has ever confirmed it, but no other retailers made any changes in the date.
mrprice33  +   626d ago
Gamestop changed the date. So far they are the only ones.

That's too much of a confirmation for me. I HATE IT!!! SHIT!

I got the same email from best buy this morning, thought it was odd since I didn't see anything about it on gaming sites, but now gamestop changed the date too, I think it's real

First it was Grand Theft Auto V and now The Last Of Us too, NO!!!. I am happy as long as they do their job and not rush the game.
isarai  +   626d ago
fine by me, would rather they finish and polish all they need rather than releasing something flawed that could possibly tarnish the experience

Cyrax4  +   626d ago
Ouch. Not good for Sony.

Remember how well Infamous 2 did when they decided to release it in June? It tanked.
CGI-Quality  +   625d ago
inFAMOUS 2 didn't tank at all. And The Last Of Us has far more buzz and pre-orders, already, than that. It will be fine.
Kevlar009  +   625d ago
As long as they don't say "delayed to coincide with the Xbox 360 release" I think we'll be good

"A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever" -Miyamoto

(I'm not insinuating TLoU is currently bad in the slightest)
