Naughty Dog has told Game Informer that its upcoming survival horror epic The
Last of Us will be released digitally through the PlayStation Store on June 14,
the same day that the game releases in stores on Blu-ray disc. There's also something special about this simultaneous release.
Naughty Dog's creative director Neil Druckmann and The Last of Us game director
Bruce Straley told Game Informer that Sony has worked a little magic so that you won't
have much of a delay before playing the digital version. The game will be
playable once the download hits 50 percent. Sony has promised that, on
PlayStation 4, downloadable games will be almost instantly playable while the download
carries on in the background.
