Sony gives The Last of Us 2 a permanent price cut on the PlayStation Store

For all the controversy surrounding The Last of Us Part 2, even the biggest critics and naysayers will have to give credit where it's due.

Naughty Dog's follow-up to the 2013 action-adventure title won numerous awards and continues to sell copies until this very day.

Yet, despite the ongoing success of The Last of Us Part 2, Sony has decided to give the game a substantial price cut on the PlayStation Store.

The Last of Us Part 2 sees a continuation of Joel and Ellie's journey throughout the post-apocalyptic United States that has been ravaged by an ongoing pandemic.

While The Last of Us Part 2 won the hearts of critics and audiences alike, there remains a huge divide among gamers.

Much of the controversy revolved around the game's heavy reliance on violence.

The game remains just as "violent" as ever, but it is more affordable now.

Still, it is surprising that Sony and Naughty Dog decided to give The Last of Us 2 a $20 price cut.

For The Last of Us 2 to receive a price cut this late and as large as it did has fans curious to see if it means something bigger is coming soon.

If there is an update coming to The Last of Us 2, a price cut would somewhat make sense.

Fans have been waiting for Naughty Dog to release a multiplayer mode for the game.

The Last of Us Part 2 is also one of the few AAA exclusives to release last year that doesn't have an official next-gen version. 

Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut is set to release in August 2021. It will come with additional content on top of PS5 enhancements. 

Death Stranding is another game that's getting a director's cut for the PS5. 

It will be interesting to see if the price cut means something or this is all much ado about nothing.
