The Ellie Edition of The Last of Us 2 Back by Popular Demand
There's no doubt that The Last of Us 2 is one of gaming's most-anticipated titles, this decade and last. One fan has already made a PS1-demake of the game in Sony's upcoming Dreams, and stills of a now-scrapped animated film connecting the first game and the sequel released online to fevered fanfare.
When pre-orders went live in September, the limited-run $230 Ellie Edition sold out crazy fast, perhaps faster than Sony and Naughty Dog had anticipated.
Those not quick enough on the mouse button lost out on some awesome TLoU2 extras, including exclusive merch, an art book, and an Ellie statue. But the laws of supply and demand tend to have predictable effects on capitalist markets.
For those hoping to get their hands on the Ellie Edition, hope is just around the corner. The Last of Us 2 Ellie Edition will be back in stock starting February 13 at 9 a.m. EST.
It's the perfect last-minute Valentine's Day gift for the special TLoU fan in your life, even if they have to wait until May 29 to unwrap it. Just keep in mind that you'll have to be quick this time around, too. Supplies aren't expected to last very long.
