Confirmation about The Last of Us being a Day 1 Digital title came to light earlier this month, and thanks to a new ad that has appeared on the PlayStation Store, we can doubly confirm that this is true. - PSLS
Sweet, I hope they throw in one of the pre-order DLC packs as well.
Just saw the update, glad it includes DLC and a theme!
Not a digital guy, until they give me a good enough incentive I will always go physical copy...
should be $49.99 or lower. There's no middle man so should be much cheaper
Please that whole middle man bs is such a lousy excuse to go digital. You can get a game near free if your good enough at exploiting deals and such, digital downloads you can't....it's fixed and barely goes down like stores reduce prices. I'll always be physical over digital until I see them released at a noticeable price difference and not just 5$.... I can see the pluses of buying digital but they are vastly outnumbered by the negative.
@ duli14 yeah I got mine from newegg for $47.99 when they were having the pre-order sale... at the end of the year.. (they were giving 12 dollars off and free shipping, no tax) -So I grabbed a ton of games.. -And they don't charge you until it ships so it's a win win.. I pre-ordered.. The Last Of Us GTA V Bioshock Infinite God Of War Ascension Crysis 3 But yeah, for some reason I much rather get the physical copy.. Especially if you end up not liking a game and just want to sell it. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
AMEN SUMMONS! funny some games from 2 years ago are still $30-45 digital when there $5-10 in stores
They should give free DLC with digital copies.
So I'm paying them the same price as retail so I can not have a physical copy and eat up precious hard drive space......... nope ill pass and get a physical copy.
Buying this tonight on psn, so a friend of mine can play it as well.
Its people like you that make companies wanting to do DRM.
Well to be fair, his freind can just play over his house or borrow it w/o paying a dime.
You can't borrow a game if it's been bought on PSN. ;)
As opposed to people who lend out their physical copies to friends? That used to be a large, accepted part of gaming, sharing your games among friends and they'd go out and buy it too if they really enjoyed it. That was back when making great games was a first priority for many publishers. Hell, I still let my friends/cousins borrow my games so they can decide if they want to buy it, and more often than not they do. I don't plan on stopping that anytime soon. It's my game, I own it, I can do what I want with it. And just so you know, DRM is more about piracy. Publishers want DRM because they're delusional and think if they stop piracy (not possible), that all pirates will just magically start buying games. But it doesn't work that way.
@porkChop That's why for physical copies they have the online pass. I feel that's is fine and acceptable. For any first party games i never let my friends borrow, i will always stick to my guns on that. Onto the digital front. For the longest time Sony allowed 5 accounts to transfer digital media. Which i think Sony then dropped it to 2 or 3 now, not for sure. They lost alot of sales cause of this, i believe more so then letting a friend borrow the game. Cause they don't even have to purchase a online pass. @Double_Oh_Snap Out of the companies you shouldn't steal from, Naughty Dog is one of them. They put nothing but effort into their games and it shows with the quality titles.
@LOL_WUT Yes you can give em your account and let them play when you're not playing been doing this while my brother is over seas in the army.
All you really need to do is activate your account on their ps3 and then start the download on your account(from their ps3). They can then switch to their account and install it after the download complete.
So pissed off with all this dlc crap everywhere. Finish the damn game. I'll wait. This is bullcrap. This is turning me off the industry right now.
So many good news about The Last Of Us.
I'm gonna order from Amazon. I actually want the box for this baby.
Whats the size for the digital release?
still trying to figure out how to get the demo since i have GOW ascension... going through the game, it still says there's over 2 days left, so i can't get it, and it's not in the PSN store from what i can see...
