There once was a time when choosing a console meant choosing an entire set of games. Mario or Sonic? Such tough decisions. Now, most games come to most platforms, so it's the exclusives that set them apart. This year's PS4 exclusive will make your eyeballs water with glory.
I don’t think words can express just how much I adore Devil May Cry. The Xbox 360 and PS3 generation gave us two superb outings in the franchise, with Devil May Cry 4 giving players control of a new demon hunter and DmC Devil May Cry rebooting the series under the guidance of developer Ninja Theory. Two fantastic, incredible games. And now they’re headed to the latest generation of consoles.
12 300. That’s the number of super-duper special 20th anniversary PlayStation 4’s that were released over the course of the last week or two. 12 299 is most likely the amount of them that will be quickly off sold for a tidy profit to rabid fans wanting to own a console that few in the world would have. And Sony isn’t exactly happy about that.
PlayStation is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary as a brand. Internationally, it has gotten a ton of attention and is doing extremely well. But how are things going in South Africa? Mighty well, and way better than it did back in the day.
I have to admit, that I think the PlayStation 4 is one of the sexiest looking consoles ever made. That whole slanted design just works for me on multiple levels, and when compared to the Wii U and Xbox One bricks, that feeling is doubled. In my pants. There’s a new PlayStation 4 on the way, that features a grey palette design reminiscent of the original PlayStation console. It’s a unit meant for the fans. Especially if they have deep pockets thanks to some profiteering on the part of opportunists.
Thanks to the lovely chaps at Sony Mobile South Africa and PlayStation South Africa, we’ve got our biggest prize ever to give away today. It’s a Sony Xperia Z3 – one of the very best smartphones on the market right now, and a PlayStation 4 – one of the best gaming machines ever. It’s going to one lucky winner, to make them have just about the best holiday period of their lives.
Final Fantasy 7? Puh-lease, who wants to be trolled with a PC port of that game onto the PlayStation 4? There are far better Final Fantasy games to port on over, instead of that over-hyped seventh instalment in the franchise. Unfortunately, the next game getting all tarted up doesn’t even rhyme with Shminal Shmantasy Date, and will instead be that one game from the series that has frightful daddy issues. Mon.
I have a huge crush on Media Molecule, the awesome studio who brought us LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway. Both franchises are wildly imaginative, making use of wool, cotton, and paper to bring their worlds to life. I haven’t had the opportunity to play the latter yet, but it’s a title that has been on my PS Vita radar for a long time now. I guess I really should get around to it sometime, and buying a PlayStation 4 too for that matter, because a new Tearaway was revealed at the PlayStation Experience event this past weekend.
Sony had some big guns out at their Las Vegas event over the weekend. But Uncharted 4 could easily be their Magnum .44, a franchise that fired three games and still has a few sequels left in the chamber. Uncharted 4 was revealed way back at E3 this year, as a haggard Nathan Drake returned to action. And here’s what the game actually looks like in motion.
Final Fantasy VII, one of the most beloved all all games associated with the PlayStation brand, is finally coming to the PlayStation 4. For years, fans have begged and begged for a remake or remaster of the game, and at Sony’s PlayStation experience event this weekend, Square announced that the game would be headed to the PS4. Before you get excited, let me first crush your spirit; it won’t be remastered at all.
Plenty of big things were a’happenin’ at the Sony PlayStation Experience over the weekend. Naturally, I ignored all of them until I finally got some news on Batman Arkham Knight. When the Dark Knight returns next year, it won’t just be in a vanilla edition of the game, as he’ll be getting some exclusive Scarecrow-themed content on the PS4. Night-light not included.
In case you've already forgotten, we are giving away a Sony Xperia Z3 and a PlayStation 4. It's really quite a magnificent prize and I'm jealous of all of you for being able to enter to win. This wasn't just a random prize thrown together, though - these were made for each other.
I am officially convinced that Joburg drivers are indies. They refuse to abide by the rules, choosing to be "trendsetters" on the road. You know, making their own paths and whatnot. Right? That is what's happening? I'm going to stick with that explanation in a bid to cut down on my road rage at the idiocy.
Probably the first thing I ask myself when I get up in the morning is, “why are there so few MOBAs in the world?” Then I realise we’re not back in 2013, and that there are approximately 4536* different titles in existence now. Sorry, did I say 4536? I meant 4537. There is a new kid on the MOBA block.
As you may or may not have noticed, we're giving away a PlayStation 4 as well as a Sony Xperia Z3. I love my PS4, and I'm currently using the Z3 so that I can review it for all of you, and I might not give it back. If you don't already have a new console, this might help you decide which one to buy - can we officially call 2015 the year of the PS4?
