Agree. 6/18/13 does not seem like a valid date for a game release.
Currently from all retailers listing on preorder page of . http://thelastofus.com/
** on the bottom left of the main page it says the release date is 5/7/13 .
ebgames - 5/7/13
amazon - 5/7/13
bestbuy - 6/18/13
target - 6/18/13
walmart - 6/18/13
sony - 5/7/13
I woul have to say its still 5/7/13
im not much of a complainer but this has to be said and im sorry but this rumour started from best buy who also had bioshock infinite as a febuary release i checked both eb game websites american and canadian they both say may 7th still. naughty dog or sony has not reported this. and june what ever the date is is not a tuesday thats when all new releases are released. and a demo has already been announced they have a date for it just havent released the date for it yet, and not to mention when you buy the new god of war you get early access to the last of us demo which has all the info on it and the new god of war ships out in a month to the day so the rumor of a delay doesent make sense what so ever.
I think this whole thing is a mistake. If ND/Sony hadn't come out with a new release date, I think its safe to say that the original release date is still in affect.
I am sorry to report this, but the game have been delayed to Friday June,14 and Naughty Dog have confirmed it by releasing the following statement :
"as a team we pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games - gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more. We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further - for ourselves, and most importantly, our fans."
"As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realise 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."
in my honest opinion I think its for the better,but what u guys think about the delay ??
