Well there it is. Last of Us 2 will still sell millions regardless. Then after it's out Sony can start the litigation process of any employee who is responsible for the leaks. Once the names come out they can kiss their careers goodbye.

If they just released it digitally then there would have been no leaks. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

This should put to rest speculation that Sony would hold back The Last of Us Part II to release simultaneously on the PS4 and as a PS5 launch title. It seemed weird to me that people kept citing Zelda Twilight Princess and Breath of the Wild as examples of the release pattern Sony would follow when they already set a precedent for this situation with The Last of Us Remastered launching on PS4 in 2014. The way I see it The Last of Us Part II will see a PS5 release some time next summer. I think Naughty Dog want to take the time to optimize the game for PS5 (and hopefully add multiplayer).

Something happened between the announcement of the delayed to the new release date. Who knows if that have anything to do with this.

Even if they released it digitally it would still come out in May... as they probably work on day one patch or even more than that.

Really looking forward to GoT. Too bad the ending is gonna suck.



Tried to tell people a wait to the PS5 launch was never gonna happen. Gotta know how this stuff works.

In any case, that's fabulous. Three days before my birthday!

We've talked about this before, I know you're a fan of just using digital distribution in this instance and I disagree as 50% of players in this ecosystem use physical media instead. Furthermore, the leak is inexcusable and defending it like that is in poor taste. This is not Sony or ND's fault but rather a pathetic ex employee trying to ruin a company and its fans enjoyment of the product. I am not engaging any more on this issue with you. 



Ahhh.. you poor still optimistic people.. these comments here break my heart.
