Gamers will be able to play The Last of Us as it is downloaded from the PlayStation Store, developer Naughty Dog has confirmed to GameInformer.

Specifically, The Last of Us can be played after the download has hit the half-way mark, but that’s still a massive step-up from where we are today.

This feature was among one of the major selling points of the PlayStation 4 during its New York City reveal back in February. However, it is apparent now that Sony is already implementing it for PS3 games.

The Last of Us will be made available for download alongside its physical counterpart on June 14.
