Why I’m buying a PS3 this summer

The Last of Us

1st things 1st..I AM A PC GAMER! Okay with that bit of snobbery out the way...

Sony's PS3 or Playstation 3 may be getting replaced with the launch of the PS4 this Xmas, but for me I got my eyes on buying a PS3. I have always been aware of the console, but the high price has always kept me away. The original launch price was a areufucking $599. (Really Sony??) Well along comes a little game called The Last of Us. The Last of Us is a third person survival horror action game, set in post-apocalyptic United States.

Whats the plot of the game?

The story is set two decades after a cordyceps-type fungus has killed millions, with nature gradually retaking the abandoned cities and towns. The survivors are hemmed inside quarantine zones, completely under the heel of the United States military, with order and screening for any Infected being viciously maintained under martial law. Joel, a hardened black-marketeer within one of the quarantine zones, goes through an event which makes him promise an old friend that he will get a young, fourteen year old girl named Ellie, away from the harsh regime to a resistance group known as the Fireflies. They begin a journey through the U.S., avoiding the Infected, humanoid creatures whose sole aim has become spreading the fungal infection. Joel and Ellie also have to avoid scavengers that survive outside the quarantine zones who see Joel and Ellie as their latest prey. Adding to their problems, the military is determined to find Ellie and bring her back under their power. From Wikipedia

OK that all sounds good and all, but here is some game play that has me ready to drop my cash on this bad boy.
