You might have already run into this news but if not it's kind of interesting to note that Sony has some unusual plans for the digital version of The Last of Us.
As confirmed by Gameinformer a few days ago the digital version of The Last of Us comes with a fancy new feature: you'll be able to start playing it after the download has reached the 50% mark.
Thinking back to the Sony press conference where the PS4 was revealed you may recall that the new system is supposed to be able to play games soon after beginning the digital download. So is this a test drive of that new technology? Do they plan to do research on whether or not this is a popular feature?
And what about you gamers, do you find the ability to play while downloading to be a highly important feature on the PS4? I like the idea, and it seems like a natural evolution of technology but I'm skeptical of how well it will work. On the other hand, since games almost never download in the background while playing other games, I'm tired of setting up my console to download and then waiting for ages.
