A potential Easter egg for The Last of Us has been spotted in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
The video from iWaggle shows a spoof version of The Observer which has the headline “Scientists are still struggling to understand deadly fungus”:
The newspaper headline, which was in the original non-patched version of Uncharted 3, bears remarkable resemblance to our theories on a killer fungus, as well as the newspaper screenshot of The Last of Us.
In that screenshot, the President is quoted as saying:
Our union remains strong. The military is making large gains and securing additional Quarantine Zones. This is our turning point. We can not and will not become the last of us. Mankind will prevail.
Why the teaser is in Uncharted remains to be seen. It’s rather unlikely that the game is in development from Naughty Dog, considering how recently Uncharted 3 was released, but ND has a history of helping out other Sony developers get the best out of the PS3.
