Hello fellow nerds and nerdettes! With E3 coming to an end very soon, I feel we can tackle the Top 5 PS4 games and Sony hardware from this past week. This list is particularly because, most of the PS4 games are multi-platform titles and that would be taking away from what this article is all about. Not to say that Batman: Arkham Knight, Mortal Kombat X and No Man’s Sky doesn’t look enticing, but we want to focus on what Sony is giving us gamers this year and beyond.
5. PlayStation TV
The Sony PlayStation Vita TV will Support the upcoming PlayStation Now, PS1 and 2 titles plus at launch we’ll be able to access over 1000 PlayStation titles. Sony is obviously going to compete with Apple TV when this launches this fall. SCE (Sony Computer Entertainment) confirmed that PlayStation TV will be available in the Australian, European and PAL markets this Spring for $150AUD.
Currently Amazon is accepting pre-orders for the PS TV Bundle and coming with the PS TV you’ll get: a DualShock 3 Controller, 8GB Memory Card, HDMI Cable and a copy of the LEGO Movie the Video Game as well. The PS TV bundle will run you about $139 dollars while the standard edition will be only $99.
4. PlayStation Now
Earlier this year we talked about what we like to see from PS Now, well for one we have an release date and two; there still isn’t a firm monthly price tag just yet. Though right now the release date for open beta for the PS Now is on July 31 for the PS 4 first, but there isn’t really a release date for PS3 and Vita users to use this service just yet. Sony is boasting that over 100 titles will be able for play when the beta launches this coming July, with titles Dead Space 3 and God of War: Ascension as the marketed titles. As for the price tag for each game? It’s rumored that pricing could start at $3 to $20 and that’s depending on either you’re renting a game like Dead Space 3 or owning the game on your console.
3. The Order: 1886
When I first saw the Order: 1886, to be honest it didn’t look enticing and it wasn’t going to be the reason that I picked up an PlayStation 4. Though during this E3 I’ve become intrigued with The Order: 1886, the gameplay demo just grabbed me and Ready at Dawn Studios is really putting everything they got into this game, which is why am glad it’s been pushed back to Feburary 20th, 2015 . Right now you the game have a chance to pre-order The Order: 1886, with two different Collector’s Edition at $79.99 and Premium Edition at $149.99. (Pictured Below)
2. Little Big Planet 3
Personally I wasn’t surprised about seeing Little Big Planet 3, because I do remember Media Molecule saying that LBP3 was in development some time ago. It’s awesome that Sack Boy/Girl is getting help from three new characters and by the looks of Odd Sock, Toggle and Swoop I seriously feel this will be the go to game for gamers with kids or who are super creative with designing levels.
1. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
When Uncharted 4 was announced every single gamer speculated that the game could be a period piece with Sir Francis Drake or an untold story featuring Nathan Drake. To see that the game will feature an older and probably tired Nathan Drake is all to awesome. Right now there isn’t any gameplay footage of the game, but during the Naughty Dog unveiling of Uncharted 4 it was annouced that directors of The Last of Us Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley is handling the project. Oh and everyone’s favorite voice actor Nolan North is returning to portray Nathan Drake.
