The Last of Us demo that comes with God of War: Ascension won't be available until two weeks before launch

Still no word on if a demo will be released for the rest of the public.

Back in January Sony sweetened the pot for prospective God of War: Ascension purchasers by promising those who bought first-run editions of Kratos' upcoming adventure would get an early demo for Naughty Dog's highly anticipated survival drama The Last of Us.

Well, technically speaking, that is true. However, Naughty Dog just revealed over Twitter that The Last of Us' demo won't be available until 31st May, only two weeks before its 14th June launch - and over three weeks later than its previously scheduled 7th May release date.

There's still no word on whether or not a The Last of Us demo will be released to the general non-Ascension buying public.

Is getting a demo only two weeks before the game comes out worth it to anyone? Would it be if it were released, say two months early?
