This Week in PlayStation: Prelude to TLOU

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, SIEA

Just a couple more days until 2013’s Game of the Year makes its rebuilt, 1080p debut: The Last of Us Remastered hits PS4 Tuesday, and we’ve got plenty of stories from the past week to prove it. Sid went hands-on, the photographically inclined will want to give Photo Mode a spin, we got a rundown on the game’s multiplayer enhancements, and the cast is taking to the stage Monday evening for a special, one-night event.

The Destiny Beta is drawing to a close this weekend — if you were on Saturday afternoon, you just may have gotten to take a crack at a Moon-set story mission! Is it September 9th yet?

My week has been split between the Destiny Beta and Final Fantasy XIV (of course). Still trying to nab those elusive BLM drops from Syrcus Tower. What are you playing?

  • I’m playing: Destiny Beta, FF14
  • I’m watching: Workaholics
  • I’m listening to: PS Blogcast 128, RX Bandits

Remember Sony, we’re still waiting for a ratchet and clank vita retail release………..

Hey Justin, I’m curious how the sales for cross-buy games are counted. I buy all of my Vita games on my PS3 and then transfer them over later in order to better manage my memory card. So I was curious if that would skew sales towards PS3 when I’m really only playing the Vita version. Or is it determined by downloads? Thanks.

Can we predownload TLOU ?

When will we be able to download The Last Of Us? You guys never fixed the store page. It shows Tuesday’s date on the main page for it but on the preorder page it still shows 12/31/14 as the date for download. It’s pretty obvious the second date is wrong so we’d appreciate a specific day and time. Do we download Monday night after midnight? Is it Eastern time? Pacific? Or do we have to wait til the store updates around 2-5PM Eastern time for it to be ready to download. There’s some pretty big differences in those times and since it’s so large we’d appreciate knowing for sure so the download could be started as early as possible. This way we won’t be forced to keep checking until it finally shows for download

Any possibility of shining force for the ps3/vita? It’s available for just about every other platform, even iOS. Maybe even a playstation mobile release.

Figured I’d throw it out there to fall on deaf ears but it sure would have been nice to have a digital upgrade for those who already own it on PSN for PS3. Especially given that Gamestop is offering it for half off when you trade the physical copy.

You guys would have sold more copies and made more money from people like me looking for something to hold us over till D3 Reaper of Souls, Halo collection, Destiny, etc. At fifty bucks for one game I already own? Meh. Maybe I’ll wait till it’s on heavy discount… probably not though because by then the MP community will have moved on.

Missed opportunity guys.

Can’t Wait for Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds and Ratchet on Tuesday, still annoyed by the delay and not having Physical. Is it true you can add amounts smaller then $5 using Pay Pal if you need a specific amount? I have $40 and change on my account and I really don’t wanna add more than $2 for Phantom Breaker. My friend said he was able to add smaller amounts than $5 if the game want’s the specific amount.

I was playing Prototype 1 (PS3), until my PS3’s laser lens died on me, and I won’t have the replacement until August 09.

I could dig out my PS2 and play some older games, but I’m honestly not in the mood to play SD games.

(I currently only have a PS1, PS2, PSP, and PS3. Our PC is incapable of playing games, and I don’t own any mobile devices)
