Sucks but happens all the time.

DoomeDx1234d ago

Well its better then GTA V's delay..

Atleast they got more time to make this game even better!

Cant wait! Blow me away ND!

Shanks1234d ago

ONLY ONE DAY AFTER E3.
WTF SONY.

thorstein1234d ago

No kidding. Delay it a few weeks so the title is working the way they want it to? No problem on this end.

guitarded771233d ago

Hmm... didn't think about the E3 thing. maybe they have some bonus surprise to announce at E3 (1 day before the game goes on sale). Sony always has an immediate gratification announcement at E3.

miyamoto1233d ago (Edited 1233d ago )

Sony needs to give their exclusives breathing room...now they are learning

007Bond1233d ago

I doubt a month is making any difference they probably just wanted a further release date, all this "extra polishing" is pure BS

ABizzel11233d ago

Sad, but that just means it can be an early birthday present for me :D

@Shanks

I always thought it would be a great idea to release a game right after E3, especially one that has garnered as much hype as TLOU. An amazing showing at E3 and a release as soon as it's over should have the hype at an all time high as well, and spur more sales Day 1.

That only downside to it this time is that the PS4 will be the main focus on E3, so it may very well take away from TLOU showing.

E3 will have PS3, PSVita, and PS4 as the focus for Sony. Seems like a 2 hour conference or longer from them.

Sarcasm1233d ago

Oh well, still buying it either way. If it ends up being one of the last great PS3 games then I'm sure its going to be one hell of a send off.

DOMination-1233d ago

99% of people who buy video games will not have heard of e3. I don't think the clash will have any effect.

subtenko1233d ago

Outrage! I demand The Last of Us to be free on PS+ now! lol, well I'm still getting it. Would be cool if we have some cool ps+ bonuses too tho, like extra maps, skins,etc.

RuperttheBear1233d ago

@DOMination

Do you seriously believe that gamers, people who buy video games regularly and read all the gaming news, such as ourselves, are in such a minority as to be 1% of everyone who buys video games?

I think you'll find that we make for a bigger audience than you might believe.

Bad news but its out at E3 time so cant wait for June.

NukaCola1234d ago

GTA V and TLOU delayed

Gives breathing room for Remember Me, so the devs should feel good about that.

Monkeycan81234d ago

Seems I forgot about Remember me... >.>

zebramocha1234d ago

The last of us more like the sad of us :(

KwietStorm1234d ago

Doesn't Remember Me come out in June?

AngelicIceDiamond1234d ago

Well, look on the bright side. More pre-orders will be taken in with the delay.

Bonus for me as it's pretty much the same time as my birthday yeah know what i'm getting.

DeletedAcc1234d ago

PSblog:
It's easily the longest campaign Naughty Dog has ever made ;-)

Btw Jak 1 had a 20 hours campaign
HOLY SH___

DaReapa1233d ago (Edited 1233d ago )

I couldn't have been happier when I read that blog entry. Just to piggyback off your post, here's an extension of that statement for those who missed the official announcement...

"The Last of Us is an ambitious project. In many ways it may be Naughty Dog’s most ambitious project to date – brand new universe and cast of characters, brand new tech, brand new genre, not to mention it’s easily the longest campaign Naughty Dog has ever made.

As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realize just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is. But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards"

-Neil Druckmann // Creative Director, Naughty Dog

Music to my ears.

BlmThug1233d ago

Thank you for that :D Always love a good, long, fleshed out campaign.

NobodyImportant1233d ago

As long as its fleshed out and not padded out.

I don't care how long it is as long as its quality not quantity.

RuperttheBear1233d ago

Yeah that's good news. As much as I loved the Uncharted series, they didn't take as long as I would have wanted to get through. That's not a knock on the series, it just means I enjoyed them so much I didn't want them to end.

For The Last of Us, a longer campaign only makes it more desirable. And the waiting for the game even harder.

damn. ah well. It'll be worth the wait :D

blackmamba7071233d ago

The Last of Us really wants to be last

Outside_ofthe_Box1233d ago (Edited 1233d ago )

lol yeah, but I'm kind of glad that it got delayed to June and GTAV too for that matter. First half of 2013 was getting too crowded. I'm glad my wallet can breathe a little lol.

Bathyj1233d ago

I wasnt going to play the demo that comes with GoW, I was going to wait it out.

I'm going to play it now.

Booyah1233d ago (Edited 1233d ago )

... damn !!

IaMs121233d ago

And at least we know that this delay will mostly improve the game instead of go backwards. *cough *cough Aliens cough*

showtimefolks1233d ago

its the 1st time a ND game has been delayed, so i will give them the benefit of the doubt. Can't wait, just like may i think june is a killer time for this game. not a lot of competition and will give the media attention it deserves

but hold up so this game will come after the day E3 ends? i hope the announcements at E3 won't over shadow this game. I still remember the Infamous 2 launch around e3 which was a mess

GribbleGrunger1233d ago

ND have just announced that TLOU is going to be 'easily' the longest campaign they've 'ever' done! Bring it on!

University is no easy shit, more games means less study.

uncharted561234d ago

I feel your pain man. I have little social life, or time for games. Its uni, studying and work. FML

MidnytRain1234d ago

I don't understand people who post comments like these. Why not game instead of post?

trenso11233d ago

@midnytrain cause maybe they found 10-20 of free time between studying and it would Benin my eyes pointless to play a game for 10-20 what could you accomplish I'm such a short time

Irishguy951234d ago

Oh well - Study and..well..the first 5 months are ****ing packed.

Cocozero1234d ago

Right after E3, hopefully it won't be forgotten.

GuyManDude1234d ago

People aren't going to not buy a game just because "E3 happened". The people who actually watch/follow E3 already know about the game and are anticipating it. The people who don't follow E3 won't be affected because...they don't follow E3.

Fil1011234d ago

Not gonna happen, this game looks the dogs bollox and after the success of the uncharted series I can see this selling a shit load on release. Naughty dog are one of my fave devs this gen.

Silly gameAr1233d ago

Really? I seriously wonder how people like you have more then 2 bubbles.

Whitefeather1234d ago

Good, they can polish it and I can play something in the summer.
