To quote: So today is September 26th, 2013. That's a special date for us. It's the day the Cordyceps outbreak hit critical mass in the world of The Last of Us.
We at Naughty Dog are celebrating by sharing some crazy tweets in regards to the outbreak. Join us in describing your experience (real or not) of how you'd survive the pandemic.
Tweet with the hashtag #OutbreakDay. We'll be retweeting the most creative tweets throughout the day.
To further celebrate the occasion, we have something fun we've been dying to share with you. It is our honor to show you the "alternate" ending for the game - with a slight twist.
We originally only showed this video at this year's PAX Prime, but now it's time for everyone to see it. We think you'll enjoy it.

15w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli announced that The Last of Us Multiplayer update v1.03 is incoming with details on Interrogation Mode outlined below.
To quote: The Last of Us multiplayer gets some serious updates today with the deployment of patch 1.03. The patch rolls out across all regions tomorrow, issuing several multiplayer fixes. In addition, a brand new game mode is being added to the suite, called Interrogation.
Interrogation is an objective game mode where both factions attempt to interrogate the opposing forces during the match, in an effort to unlock the enemy lockbox.

17w ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty has shared several videos today unveiling some of the secrets from The Last of Us PS3 Multiplayer for fans below.
To quote: Greetings, PlayStation-ers! My name is Colin Moriarty, IGN's Senior Editor.
If you're a PlayStation fanatic - and since you're on the PlayStation.Blog, you probably are - you may recognize me as the man in charge of IGN's PS4, PS3, and PS Vita coverage. You may also know me as one-third of Podcast Beyond.
Today, I write my inaugural PlayStation.Blog post to tell you about something I'm very excited for. See, I'm pretty darn keen on The Last of Us... so much so, in fact, that I got sucked in for about 40 hours worth of multiplayer madness after the game launched. And that got me thinking: who's responsible for The Last of Us' most understated feature, its online suite?
Naturally, I found an answer. Naughty Dog's David Ballard was kind enough to come to IGN's San Francisco headquarters to record a series of videos with me, one for each map in the multiplayer suite.
19w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan confirmed that Chillingo's iBomber Defense blasts onto PS Mobile this week.
To quote: Every Tuesday, there are new games, apps and updates added to PlayStation Mobile. Action Button Entertainment's Ten By Eight and Chillingo's iBomber Defense released this week, along with updates to 0War and Mononoke Slashdown.
Ten by Eight by Action Button Entertainment ($2.99)
Ten By Eight is a puzzle game strong enough for a brain surgeon and pH-balanced for a rocket scientist. You can clear as few as three tiles, though don't stop there!
Swap tiles into groups of three or more. Chain up the longest match you can. Use wildcard star tiles to link a chain of one color to a chain of another color. Heat the action up in any of three modes. Timed Mode asks you how many points you can make in three minutes.
Zen Mode asks you to hang out and make your own challenges (try clearing all eighty tiles in one action). And Endless Mode never ends – if you're good enough. In Endless Mode stone tiles will appear. Surround them to destroy them; if one touches the bottom, it's game over. Also, the music is great.
