You'll Need to Take Out a Loan to Afford This Hat DLC for The Last of Us

Posted by Kell Andersen

Hats off

Some days video game news runs so thick and fast that the highly trained team of journalistic monkeys here at Push Square Towers can barely keep up with it all. Other days – like when a huge European industry event is in just under a week's time, for instance – there's so little happening that we're forced to cover stories that some might consider slightly less newsworthy. Today is one of those days.

So, without further ado, we're genuinely thrilled to tell you that The Last of Us is getting some new downloadable content which will allow you to adorn your multiplayer avatar with one of several different cranial coverings. The costumes in question can be seen above, and are joined by a few other pieces of tat.

This would have been the end of the story, but one of those journalistic monkeys we mentioned earlier happened to notice that this content is priced at the princely sum of $6.99 (£4.15). Splutter. Apparently there are more packs of this variety on the way – presumably with similarly ludicrous price points – so you can look forward to those as well if you'd like.

What are your thoughts on this pricey DLC? Are you willing to fork out some serious cash for a handful of hats? Tell us it's a slow news day in the comments section below.

That DLC price is the same for a hat in real life. I'm not tripping about it, but if you don't want to buy it than you don't have to.

I tend to not complain about DLC in general! This pack gives you vanity items at a price that might interest you, it might not, nobody is putting a gun to your head and making you buy it and it doesn't make you OP in game, your gameplay experience doesn't change if you or others have it so if you don't want it, don't get it!

Maybe Naughty Dog should focus on fixing the matchmaking in multiplayer before pushing out crap microtransactions!

....You think those hats are expensive?
If you wanted a pack of hats like that in TF2, you would pay at least $40.

While i think that the last of us was arguably the best game for ps3, i really couldnt understand why the overpriced DLC was received so well. Me and my bro bought it for 15 euros, had to wait 4 hours for it to download, and then completed it in 1,5 hour. biggest deception ever. the story of TLOU was awesome, but the lesbian adventures of ellie i couldnt care less about.

Sure you are not being 'forced'to buy it. But just like with this dlc, the price is just too high and leads to Naughty Dog losing rep points in my book.

Good thing this is for the avatars, because if you pay so much for hats you have lost your head.

Naughty dog do rinse their dlc, they are one of if not my favourite developer but I have hated some of their dlc decisions

I got 3 packs for free, about 20 odd hats, masks etc.

You can just buy the one you want for 79p which isnt that bad, and no more than the usual.
