    The Last of Us will be playable once download hits 50%

    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.

    So, I'm out on that option. Oh well, I prefer retail anyways. But it's good that Sony finally realized that if they want digital downloads to catch on then they need to make things accessible.

    If you bother to download potentially 40+GB game then your internet WILL be adequate. I wonder why there's a restriction for 50% on this when ps4 doesn't have it

    ^maybe it's something to do with the os of the ps3 compared to it being almost instantly on the ps4.

    I'm glad there's a psn version. I have 20 dollars to spend anyways that I got back from the spend 50 and get 10 back deal.

    Next-Gen should offer pre-loading, like Steam does for some games. That way you can instantly play it when it hits the release date.

    You can already pre order and begin downloading at midnight of release, unless you mean something else.

    No, you can download it days in advance so you have it on, but it's locked until release date.

    Sony has been doing a good job with their digital delivery. They do need to get more realistic with the pricing of older games though.

    Sony'sSony's download and decompress system sucks. It should be like MS or Steam where its good to play once downloded. If lets say this game is 43GB (U3 was more) we need 86GB free to download and install the game

    Pretty much this. It's great that Sony are using digital downloads to their advantage but they really do need to realise that not everyone has access to super-fast download speeds. I can get about 2MB download on a good day so that would rule me out of anything like this.

    It will also be playable straight away when I insert the disk, most likely before it is even on the store.

    No matter what the PS4 can do, physical hard copies will ALWAYS be SUPERIOR to digital. I do no give a **** about the argument you will make about digital, physical>digital. End of story.

    The only time I will ever consider digital is when I can't find a game anywhere on the planet or when it's not compatible.

    In your opinion.

    I prefer the shortest load times possible in my games and the least amount of stress on my disc drive. A lot of games nowadays (mostly handhelds) are actually digital only.

    I think the fact that people get so worked up over digital is the fear that it inevitably is gonna take over like it almost has on PC, movies, music and pretty much the consoles are next.

    You should know better than to buy off the European PlayStation Store lol, overpriced games, delayed games, broken games etc. I haven't bought anything off the EU Store for like a year now.
