I don't think that will impact it. Sony will expecting this to sell 10-15m, I very much doubt the majority of those people who buy the game know anything is even leaking.

Hah, I was waiting for that ;)

But realistically, Sony aren't pulling out a new release date the day after a load of spoilers leak because of the spoilers are they? It'll be because they'll have sorted their supply chain.

That reveal trailer got me so hyped, but I've not felt excited about this in a very long time. Maybe it'll change now that it's finally coming out...

Jason Schreier suggesting the cause of the leak is a disgruntled employee.

I’d suggest avoiding replies to anything Last of Us related on Twitter if you’re trying to avoid.

From what's been reported Naughty Dog is a horrendous place to work at.
I know they feel under pressure to get games out but if they were just open and honest with gamers I think we'd all accept delays to games if it means the people making them aren't treated like absolute gooseberry fool.

So manufacturing physical copies was never the issue? Why don't they bring the release forward?

19th June is a gooseberry fool time to release for me so well probably wait for it to go on sale.

Seems to be a theme with game devs unfortunately, quite a number of brilliant studios have been exposed for having horrendous crunch periods. I hope the industry as a whole learns from this and other related stories and reduce crunch for all. It will mean waiting longer for games, but I'd prefer it if people weren't exploited and selfishly; I always have a back log of games to play anyway.

I think one issue is the price of videogames is stuck at the $60/£40 level generally speaking, certainly over the past decade whereas the cost of making them is going up and up. And for most games come tumbling down in price after a few months on the shelves.

Publishers don't want to rock the consumer expectation boat and neither do they want to reduce their profit margins. So they force unpaid labour on their employees.

I played up until the school and I got really bored

Ive got the remaster on ps4 since forever so I might just download that as I heard it fixes the graphics issues

Maybe I'm easily pleased but I played the game on PS3 and 4 and don't remember any particular graphics issues.
Maybe there was a bit of slowdown in some sections but nothing terrible or game breaking so what were the issues?

I can understand how you may get bored as the game is a bit samey after a while I suppose and if the story isn't gripping you that's fair enough.

Only thing I can remember from the remaster is occasional lighting/shadow glitches. Annoying but not really enough to be off-putting.

I bought the remastered version when it was on sale on ShopTo for £15 or something like that, never actually got around to playing it though :fp: The PS3 version was fantastic though, played it through a few times and can’t remember too many graphical issues with it.
