It's the one date so many PlayStation 3 owners wanted to see tonight: The launch date for Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us .
And we got it at the Spike TV Video Game Awards tonight, as we now know the hotly anticipated PS3 exclusive will hit store shelves on May 7, 2013 in North America.
Initially unveiled in December of last year, the game has received plenty of press and promotion in 2012; Sony and Naughty Dog have done a good job keeping us abreast of the studio's progress. We've seen several enticing trailers and that gameplay segment shown off at E3 really got people talking. There's a darn good chance that The Last Of Us will be in line for some awards next year, just because it's Naughty Dog and…well, we've seen a lot of it already. Is there anybody who isn't at least a little impressed?
So put that date on your calendar, folks. You won't want to miss it.
