The Last of Us is getting some downloadable extras for its underrated multiplayer mode, including new weapons, skills, items, outfits, gestures, and special executions. In truth, this isn't terribly interesting news, but there is one slight quirk: a selection of the extras won't be making it to the PlayStation 3 version of the game. Indeed, a bevy of executions for the rifle, automatic rifle, and ground shiv will be totally PS4 exclusive.

Naughty Dog community strategist Eric Monacelli confirmed that this was mostly due to technical issues. "We had to exclude some sets from the PS3 version of the game due to memory constraints on the hardware," he said. "Yes, it seems with our latest add-ons we're squeezing every last ounce of memory the PS3 has to run our Factions mode."
