Saw this hours ago and havent seen a thread yet. (about the listing, not about the exec who mentioned it existed).
While Sony hasn’t confirmed plans for the release of The Last of Us for PS4, something interesting appeared on the website of the Spanish retailer Xtralife: The Last of Us Complete Editon, as discovered by Twitter user Hero of Time.
This comes after a PS4 version of the game was mentioned by Sony Eurasia Market Manager Sercan Sülün. A mention of it was also spotted yesterday on GameStop Germany‘s internal system.
The release date is listed as June 19th, that isn’t exactly “summer” as hinted by Sülün, but it’s close enough. The screenshots on the page are from the PS3 version of the game, but that’s not really surprising.
Of course this is no official confirmation, and shouldn’t be considered as such, but it isn’t the first time European retailers with an overeager trigger finger oust a release in this way (a recent example is the inFAMOUS: Second Son PS4 Bundle) and it’s definitely an interesting piece of this mysterious puzzle. We’ll have to wait and see if it’ll turn out to be legit, but for now we’ll have to take this with the usual pinch of salt.
Below you can see a screencap of the listing and the box art, since it’ll probably be taken down as soon as someone at Sony notices.
On topic, I think everybody knew this was coming. I knew before the game even came out, that they intended the entire time to release it on PS4, just like GTAV. I just hope Sony makes it part of their $10 next gen upgrades deal because I'd get it on PS4 just to be able to play the MP with the DS4. One less reason to ever have to turn on my PS3 again. I havent touched the multiplayer for TLOU in over 2 months (since getting a PS4), because I cant go back to the Dualshock 3 after using the DS4. That, and going back to the XMB.
