The lights are on
Naughty Dog has told Game Informer that its upcoming survival horror epic The
Last of Us will be released digitally through the PlayStation Store on June 14,
the same day that the game releases in stores on Blu-ray disc. There's also something special about this simultaneous release.
Naughty Dog's creative director Neil Druckmann and The Last of Us game director
Bruce Straley told Game Informer that Sony has worked a little magic so that you won't
have much of a delay before playing the digital version. The game will be
playable once the download hits 50 percent. Sony has promised that, on
PlayStation 4, downloadable games will be almost instantly playable while the download
carries on in the background.

Interesting... I was under the impression that the reason this hadn't been done before was some kind of hardware limitation. If this was possible the whole time, why wait to start until the tail end of a generation?
Interesting... I guess this is so the can check it out and get it ready for the PS4.
That's pretty cool.
Mmmmmm I can taste the game already.
That's cool it will be release digital since my birthday is June 13 :) lol
