If you took the comments on social media and sites like Push Square as common opinion, you’d assume no one was planning to buy PS5 remake The Last of Us: Part I. Of course, that’s not true, and Naughty Dog’s special Firefly Edition sold out almost as quickly as it went up for pre-order earlier in the year. Such is its rarity that some chancers tried to flog it for up to $450 on auction site, eBay.
We advised at the time there’s a good chance Sony will restock, and it’s happening on 2nd September at 12AM ET. “These will be on a first come, first serve basis, exclusively on PlayStation Direct,” the developer said.
Unfortunately, these won’t be available in Europe, and Naughty Dog has a special message for its fans overseas: “Europeans, we’re working with our partners at SIE, and hope to provide an update on what we can offer soon.”
The Firefly Edition comes with all sorts of goodies, including a copy of the remake in a steelbook case, four issues of the American Dreams comic series with new cover art, and a bunch of in-game goodies – including early access to Speedrun Mode and more. It should be stressed that you can still unlock all of this in-game content in any version of the release, the Firefly Edition just expedites your progress.
