The Last Of Us Leads The Charge For PSN Weekly Update
It's a big week for Joel and Ellie as the heroes of Naughty Dog's latest offering, The Last of Us finally step into the spotlight. The dynamic duo of the apocalypse headline this week's offerings for the PlayStation Network.
There is, however, a small catch. While the rest of this week's PlayStation Network content highlighted in The Drop will be arriving at its regular time during the Tuesday afternoon update, The Last of Us will not make an appearance until its launch date later in the week; June 14, to be exact. The good news is that the game will be available at midnight through the PlayStation Network and you can actually start playing it once the download is halfway finished. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the game's launch has something to do with this week's E3 events, which come to a close day before The Last of Us has its midnight release.
To help pass the time between the regular store update and Thursday's arrival of The Last of Us, several new digital games will join the virtual store this week, along with a new demo and a couple of PS2 Classics.
Flying Hamster HD will bring its adorable side-scrolling shooter goodness to the vita this week while gamers on the PS3 can finally download copies of Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Aliens: Colonial Marines.
A demo for the recently announced Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F this week, as well as PlayStation 2 games Contra: Shattered Soldier and Pirates: Legend of the Black Buccaneer.
Look for all of that (Except The Last of Us, of course) on Tuesday alongside the regular weekly dose of trailers, DLC, etc. And if Sony follows its usual E3 trend, there's a pretty good chance additional content, like trailers and their upcoming press conference, will be made available from the E3 floor.
