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.
