The Last of Us Part I Firefly Edition is Arriving in the UK

The Last of Us Part I Firefly Edition

The Last of Us Part I Firefly Edition is arriving in the UK, and you can pre-order it now from Sony’s PlayStation Direct store.

Hang on.. didn’t the game come out a couple of months ago? It did, and we loved its new incarnation, pricey as it is. However, The Last of Us Part I Firefly Edition didn’t make it these shores and was a US exclusive.

What’s special about this is that it has a steelbook and a reprinted edition of The Last of Us: American Dreams. The latter is a four issue comic that features Ellie and her would-be girlfriend Riley as they explore their locked-down, post-apocalyptic city. By all accounts, it’s pretty excellent.

However, when the Firefly Edition hit the US it sold out quickly. And, while there has been a restock or two, it was being listed on eBay for silly money. It was reportedly being listed for up to $600, though that doesn’t mean it was being sold at that price. But a quick look at eBay US confirms that it is being purchased for $299.99. That’s nearly three times its $100 purchase price.

So how do we know the UK edition (spotted by Eurogamer) won’t be a target for scalpers over here? We don’t. Sony is limiting purchase of this edition, available only on PS5, to one per customer. But enterprising scalpers may find a way round it, so we’d recommend you snap it up while you can.

The Last of Us Part I Firefly Edition is priced at £99.99 from Sony’s PlayStation Direct store, arriving on Thursday 26th January.
