The Last of Us Remastered PS4 bundle spotted

No official announcement out of Sony, but it seems there's a PlayStation 4 bundle featuring The Last of Us Remastered on the way. Amazon France lists the package for release on July 30, 2014. This upgraded version of The Last of Us may not be an all-new game, but it's a meaningful exclusive for PlayStation. More than enough to warrant a bundle, in other words.   more

Good news, everyone: Splatoon will have local multiplayer
