for those of us who are semi-retarded would one of the bros go ahead and explain to us what going gold means? why it is significant? and why it took so long to finaly become gold? i thought it would of happend a few months ago.
It means that the game is finished 100%, but I don't really get the excitement about it, because gold or not, we don't get to play it before june 17, because they are not going to change the release date, so I wonder why anybody would be excited about this news, also it isn't even gold, IGN puts a question mark with it, Naughty Dog didn't say it is gold yet
Because some people will likely have it in their hands 1-2 weeks before the official release date...
Yes, there are most likely going to be people with the game early. It happens quite often, people being able to get their hands on a copy from a store unwittingly selling it or something.
Quick guys check neogaf! There might be some news!
