2w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared details today on The Last of Us in which Neil Druckmann offers his insight on creating a future PS3 classic.
To quote: As many of you will have seen, the review scores are finally in for The Last of Us - the brand new PS3 title from Uncharted studio Naughty Dog.
At the time of writing, its Metacritic score sits at a mighty 95/100, cementing its place as one of the very finest video games of this console generation. Perfect scores came in from some of the toughest critics in the business, including Eurogamer, Edge and Videogamer.
In just seven days' time you'll be able to judge for yourself, but in the meantime I caught up with the game's Creative Director Neil Druckmann to delve into the project's origins, its development and the studio's thoughts on the finished product.
He was in fine form - just as we started talking, he was handed an early print-out of the very first review - that Edge 10/10. Read on for some great insight into video game development at the very highest level.

We've carefully studied the footage, asked pressing questions, and present you with this breakdown.
1. Aiden Pierce isn't your typical videogame protagonist
"Aiden is a man with a dark past who has made questionable choices," Lead Story Designer Kevin Shortt explained in our first live gameplay demo.Growing up in Chicago, Aiden used his technical prowess to infiltrate bank accounts and access surveillance systems, becoming something of a vigilante. Naturally, these pursuits earned him some powerful enemies on both sides of the law.
As you play Watch_Dogs, you won't be choosing between stark extremes on some binary morality scale, but defining where Aiden resides on much murkier spectrum of acceptability.
2. Chicago isn't your typical videogame city
We've all played open-world action games where cities feel more like a collection of giant painted boxes than a...
