PS3A PlayTime: 8th-14th July 2013
As predicted, The Last of Us is PS3 Attitude’s most played game of the last week. To be honest I’m starting to run out of great things to say about it, so I kind of hope another game takes the top spot next time (although I somehow doubt it). Thankfully, the Steam Summer Sale and MitchJay’s Japanophilic tendencies both help to inject some much-needed variety into today’s PlayTime.

PlayTime: 1st-7th July 2013
Once again, The Last of Us has been at the very forefront of PS3 Attitude’s play time this week and, judging by its four weeks at the top of the UK videogame chart, we’re not the only ones. Also getting some action this week were quirky JRPG Time and Eternity, the surprisingly decent Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, and great-looking racing sequel Grid 2.
