Okay, so maybe we're grasping at straws. But we just really want this game.
After The Last Guardian showed up at E3Insider, Sony said it was "purely speculative," which unfortunately took the wind out of our sails.
However, today, a major Portugal retailer (FNAC) has given the hotly anticipated PS3 exclusive a 2013 release window (via NeoGAF ). It should be noted that while retail leaks can't always be trusted, this particular retailer leaked accurate launch estimates in the past. They got Gran Turismo 5 right and most recently, they leaked Rayman Legends for the Vita.
As the NeoGAF poster wrote:
"Just took these at the biggest retailer in Portugal, they don’t put these up on rumours. Same place I got the GT5 release date from and turned out to be correct. Says it’s coming out this year for PS3."
I know everyone is looking forward to seeing more PS4 software at E3 but I wouldn't mind if Sony closed their conference with the news that The Last Guardian was hitting this year. In some ways, I wish it was being made for the new console now. But with The Last Of Us and Beyond: Two Souls already slated for 2013, the addition of The Last Guardian would only reinforce PlayStation as the undisputed leader of top-end exclusive titles.
