General News

  • Retailer listings aren’t always accurate, but when Best Buy, Target, and Gamefly all give The Last of Us Remastered a release date of June 20th, there’s some weight behind it. If Friday, June 20th is true, then the PS4 version would launch just over a year after the PS3 version, which came out on June 14th, 2013. Once a confirmed release date is announced, we’ll let you know. [Via]
