  • NEWS: Sony fans who were on the fence on buying God of War: Ascension are probably non-existent. However, if there were any still holding out, there’s now an extra incentive to pick up a copy of the game on launch as Sony Australia announced today that the latest God of War will come with a demo of The Last of Us, albeit in an unorthodox fashion. On the disc, gamers will find details on how to access the demo for free as soon as it becomes available, at a date which will be revealed on the PlayStation Blog some point in the future.
  • NEWS: Sega have let us know that Total War: Shogun 2 will be receiving a Gold Edition, which will include all the expansions, plus all released downloadable content (excluding the Blood Pack – although the Wolf Pack can never be excluded), in a limited-production packaging inspired by Wajima-nuri. It’ll be on sale in Australia from 7 March.

The tweet has been subsequently removed.
