'Unbelievable' PS3 exclusive teased as 'The Last of Us'

Sony has a PS3 exclusive in the works that, apparently, we "will not believe." It's due for unveiling at the Spike Videogame Awards on Saturday, but we've been given a little taste today, courtesy of a teaser site called The Last of Us

The above trailer shows scenes of rioting and disease, leading many to speculate that yet another zombie game is in the works. The teaser site, however, contains a rather famous clip of an ant being infected with the parasitoid cordyceps unilateralis -- a type of mind-controlling brain fungus that forces ants to climb a plant and freeze in place until its ready to grow out of the victim's head. Of course, they could still just be using that as a zombie metaphor, but a game about mind-control fungus would be pretty great.

Either way, let the rudderless speculation run rampant!
