General News

  • A listing for The Last of Us: Complete Edition on PS4, complete with a satchel, popped up on Spanish retail site XtraLife with a release date of June 19th recently (but it’s since been taken down). This listing follows news from Sercan Sulun, who last week said that The Last of Us is coming to PS4. We’ll just have to wait and see if this turns out to be real or not, so stay tuned. [Via, Source]
  • The wait for the new PlayStation All-Stars patch should be coming to a close soon, with Sony Santa Monica saying it won’t arrive this week, “But next week, I am told probability is extremely high. I will not lay my head down under a guillotine just yet with a promise of the exact day, but we are very much on track for release, finally, next week. This week we are submitting for final QA approval and expect to be approved before the weekend. Assuming that, we are free and clear to deploy.” [Source]
