The Last of Us delayed to June 14

The Last of Us will release five weeks later than planned, developer Naughty Dog announced today. The PlayStation 3 exclusive from the house of Uncharted will launch worldwide on June 14, rather than May 7 as revealed at the 2012 Spike VGAs.

"As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realise just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is," reads a post from lead game designer Neil Druckmann on the PlayStation Blog. "But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards."

It's a bit strange that the new release date is on a Friday, rather than on Tuesday like it was before. It's not like anything else is happening that week...

    I don't really mind the delay per se... but that they are releasing it so close to E3 is kinda worrying... Mainly because I remember Sony doing this in the past with infamous 2... And well, the game's release and attention was drowned by the news of the event. So I'm kinda confused as to why the hell Sony thinks this is a good idea.
