Lego's super heroes

SERIOUSLY, how bad do you want to play the upcoming new LEGO release, MARVEL SUPER HEROES?

Last week, Warner Bros revealed the official box art, which features in-game characters Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Spider Man, Hulk and Wolverine.

Marvel Super Heroes boasts more than 100 Marvel characters and will go on sale in Australia in spring on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Nintendo DS and 3DS, PS Vita, PC as well as the next-gen consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Last is first in sales

THIS will probably come as no great shock to anyone who has played it, but Sony Entertainment's THE LAST OF US has become the best-selling PlayStation 3 title of 2013.

As of last week, global sales of The Last of Us passed 3.4 million units worldwide a truly staggering figure.

"These sales figures are a testament to the blockbuster quality of The Last of Us," Sony Computer Entertainment president Shuhei Yoshida said.

And he's right. The Last of Us is arguably the best title ever released on PS3.
