Naughty Dog are nearly ready to unveil The Last of Us to the world, a game that launches simultaneously on Blu-ray and as a download through PSN on June 14. If you choose the download method, then you can only play the game once it has downloaded 50%.

The PlayStation 4 will have this feature, where it will allow you to play the games as you're downloading them. PS3 gamers will get a tease of this PS4 feature with The Last of Us, but the PS4's method will be far superior thanks to its dedicated hardware that is used for background downloading and processing.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
