The Last of Us

God of War: Ascension will include an exclusive demo for The Last of Us when it launches for PlayStation 3 on March 12, Naughty Dog has announced.

“Just load the God of War: Ascension disc into your PS3 and find The Last of Us listing on the main menu,” said Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli. “There, you’ll find details on how you can obtain The Last of Us demo for free as soon as it becomes available.”

The Last of Us is due for PlayStation 3 on May 7.

  • That’s great. Already pre-ordered God of War: Ascension’s CE.

    That’s desperate. No wonder judging by he lack of hype or media buzz surrounding GOWA. It’s releasing in 2 months -_-

    • I agree buddy. Not a day one buy for me, they lost my interest when the word *Multiplayer* was announced….

      • DarthNemesis

        You are stupid.MP will affect the game one bit.Comments like this make me ashamed to be a gamer.

        • How exactly is he stupid? There are single player game series, that have gone from good to bad once the sequel had multiplayer for example lets say um, Final fantasy 7 had multiplayer the game would be terrible and it would make the series look bad, plus before you call anyone stupid, at least make sure your words make sense.

          • Thanks for the defend buddy, I love being called stupid from an apparent *Gamer*….

            • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

              A “gamer” who lacks basic English grammar skills calling someone else “stupid” is kind of ironic, isn’t it.

        • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

          At least his comment made sense without having had to be reinforced by insulting other members or insinuating they are of lower intellect than oneself. Additionally he does not mix up plural nouns with singular determiners ;)

      Why are people so unhappy to get free things?

      • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

        I never said that. TLOU (Ellie Edition) has already been pre-ordered as it’s my most anticipated game besides BEYOND and FFvXIII. Well, Europeans won’t receive it anyways and I certainly am not gonna import a US copy of GOWA for a timed exclusive demo.

    • DarthNemesis

      How the hell is it desprrate when they always do this? Its a great idea and I was already getting gow and now I also get an extra treat.Some of you people really are brainless.

      • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

        You are aware of the fact that a human lacking a brain would have quite a hard time composing this comment, are you not. In that case your comment is void.

    well played strategy, that may boost sales of GOWA. hope the game does well

  • bebestorm117

    I hope Sony release it on psn because I dont play GOW anymore and Im still on the fence with LOU so I would really like to play the demo.

    • ShinAsura

      I’m good cause I have a ton of games coming out and like you i don’t play GoW anymore

      • bebestorm117

        Your right about there being plenty to play I still have a backlog.

    • PrinceHeir


  • Still have not made up my mind about TLOU but I would not play the demo or watch anymore trailers if I was getting it or play this demo. I also have no interest in the GOW game so pretty pointless just put the demo up on PSN for people who want to try it before they buy it.

    “There, you’ll find details on how you can obtain The Last of Us demo for free as soon as it becomes available.”

    So, it actually isn’t included on the disc? When exactly is it going to be available then?

  • So, I have Xbox Live Gold, PlayStation Plus and I’m still expected to shell out £40 to gain access to a demo for a completely unrelated £40 title? No thanks.

  • syaznifaiq

    Never though the day will come when PS3 gamers fight among themselves about a little whinny-thing .. Sony just doing the same thing that Capcom and Konami did in the past ..remember ‘Zone of the Enders HD Collection got MGR demo’ and ‘Dragon’s Dogma got Resident evil 6 demo’

    yeah, i know the word “exclusive demo” in this article and one more thing “There, you’ll find details on how you can obtain The Last of Us demo for FREE as soon as it becomes available.” ???

    Can’t wait!
