What a week, huh?
In case your internet’s been out for the past few days, on Wednesday we announced our new console — PlayStation 4. With new, supercharged hardware (8GB of unified DDR5 memory!), the sleek new DualShock 4, seamless social features, enhanced Remote Play capabilities, and other technological leaps, the next generation is looking mighty fine indeed. Keep PS.Blog bookmarked (or subscribe to the RSS feed), because we’ll be bringing you white-hot PS4 news as it becomes available, leading up to its Holiday 2013 launch.
I might be a little late to the party here, but I’ve been reading the Injustice prequel comic (see IGN’s Q&A with its writer, Tom Taylor, here), and it’s a doozy. If you’re looking forward to NetherRealm‘s latest, I cannot recommend enough that you pick this up. If you’re not looking forward to it, this prequel series may change your mind!
We were, expectedly, quite busy this week, so I didn’t have a ton of gaming time, but having exacted my Revengeance, I’ve been gravitating back to good old Black Ops II. I only recently learned that this was a Double-XP weekend, but sadly I’m out of town so I can’t take advantage. As soon as I’m back home, it’s Vanquish time.
Which PS4 game has got your attention? What do you think of some of the system’s new features? And, as always, what are you playing this weekend?
- I’m playing: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Call of Duty: Black Ops II
- I’m watching: Skyfall, Seinfeld Season 4
- I’m listening to: Asian Kung-Fu Generation, The Unfinished Swan Soundtrack
