The Last of Us will receive two free multiplayer maps on PS3 & PS4
Free maps! And about those pesky matchmaking times…It’s time for a quick status update regarding matchmaking in The Last of Us Remastered. We’ve been working hard to alleviate the long waits in Factions matchmaking some of our multiplayer community have been experiencing. We are working on resolving this issue for those in our community who are still affected.We know this can be frustrating and the team here at Naughty Dog wants everyone in our community to know that working on this issue continues to be our number one priority.Over the last couple of weeks, we have deployed LiveUpdates and Patch 1.02, which have resulted in some significant improvements, but there is still more to be done to reduce the matchmaking wait times.Over the last two weeks, we’ve discovered that the most significant improvements may come from working with other teams at PlayStation to make updates to some of the existing matchmaking libraries. Since we are working with multiple groups inside and outside of the studio, we don’t yet have an exact date on when these updates will roll out. Our current estimate is on the short side of weeks, rather than months. We’ll be sure to keep you updated the moment we can provide more specific timing, or an actual date.Believe me, the entire team at Naughty Dog completely understands how frustrating this has been for many of you in our community. We’ve got some good news. At the end of July, we teased some new multiplayer add-on content which included a glimpse at new maps for Factions. We’re glad to say that we’ve decided to release these two maps for free on both the PS3 and PS4 in appreciation for all of your continued patience as we work to resolve the matchmaking issues.We will keep you updated as we continue to work on improving the matchmaking wait times and when we can expect the bigger update the roll out. In the meantime, if you find yourself waiting to get into a match, the best thing you can do is exit matchmaking and select “Find Match” again.Thank you to everyone in our community for your understanding and continued support.

Yoshida: ‘I hope’ Tomb Raider will come to PS4
During its Gamescom press conference, Microsoft announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider would launch exclusively on Xbox platforms in holiday 2015. This came as a surprise to President of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida, he said in an interview with Eurogamer."It’s very interesting the way Phil Spencer said, what we are saying is, in holiday 2015 Tomb Raider is exclusive to Xbox,” he said. “So it’s open to interpretation. But still, we didn’t anticipate something like this would happen.” Yoshida said he didn’t know if Rise of the Tomb Raider would launch on Sony platforms: “I hope the game will come out eventually on PS4. But how can I tell? Other than that cryptic message by Phil Spencer.”Crystal Dynamics head Darrell Gallagher said that the Xbox exclusivity deal didn’t mean that the studio was “walking away" from PlayStation or PC players. Still, fans’ emotions ran high after Microsoft’s announcement, with many decrying the move on Twitter and in comments.

Gaming Nostalgia was originally a series of posts that I would share showcasing retro/old school flyers, this time it’s featuring old video game screenshots/artworks. These posts will be made at random unlike the original series where they would be posted on Sundays.
