Say ‘Ciao!’ to a Special Edition ‘The Last of Us’ Bundle in Italy


At last year’s E3, there were three major titles that were on everybody’s lips despite full knowledge that we wouldn’t even see a hint of them until 2013. One of those, and possibly the highlight of Sony’s pre-E3 press conference, was Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us.

The PlayStation 3 exclusive has been stirring up excitement since it was first announced at 2011’s Spike Video Game Awards, and more so when gameplay was revealed at 2012’s E3 Conference. The post-apocalyptic third-person action/survival game has almost existed in a guerrilla marketing campaign, popping up here and there with just a little more info to whet the players appetite, then laying dormant for a moment before resurfacing somewhere else.

According to Gameranx.com, The Last of Us has resurfaced again… in Italy.

Amazon Italy, specifically, is where Joel, Ellie, and a bunch of infected nasties have resurfaced, in the form of a special edition The Last of Us bundle, featuring the game, a special edition metal water bottle, skins for the PS3 and a DualShock 3 controller, and a 30-day subscription to PlayStation Plus. Amazon Italy is retailing the bundle for 89.99 Euro, which roughly converts to about $120, a standard price for bundling in the United States. The likelihood of the bundle carrying over to the States at that price is pretty good, so get those Euros – er, we mean, dollars – ready.

The Last of Us is slated to infest your PlayStation 3 on May 7. If, somehow, you have not yet heard of this potentially-epic game, check out the trailer below which initially aired at the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards [warning: trailer contains adult language and some graphic violence]:
