What do Shaun White, Snoop Dogg, Steph Curry, Yasiel Puig, Shuhei Yoshida, and I have in common? Up until yesterday, absolutely nothing… but as of today, out of some bout of dumb luck, Shuhei Yoshida and I are this month’s PlayStation HEROES, complete with our very own superpowers! Check it out:
From the minute we saw Destiny at Bungie, we loved it, and we thought it was the exact kind of game PlayStation fans would fall in love with…and you did. You spent so much time trading in items to the Cryptarch, hiding in terror waiting for a Strike teammate to respawn, or just standing outside of a cave like maniacs firing blindly into the abyss.
Anyone who buys Far Cry 4 on PS4 or PS3 will receive 10 keys to send to your PSN friends, letting them join you in Kyrat for a free two-hour trial period, even if they don’t own a copy of the game. As an added bonus, your friends will get a currency boost for playing the trial if they end up purchasing the full game!
What a week! Since Destiny launched one week ago, it has officially become the biggest PS4 game launch in North America ever. The game broke records for being the fastest purchased and most played PS4 game during its first week on sale. In fact, last week was our single biggest PS4 hardware sales week since Christmas 2013! That’s a lot of PS4s. Thanks, Guardians!
With E3 2014 mere days away, I wanted to take a quick trip down memory lane to E3 2013. Back then, I had the incredible pleasure of introducing nine indie developers making PS4 games on-stage during our press conference — probably my proudest moment of the show. We thought it would be fun to check-in with these nine developers one year later, seeing what it has been like for them to develop on PS4 and work with PlayStation in general.
Hello PlayStation fans! We held an awesome event at our offices yesterday, and in case you missed some of our new game announcements I wanted to round them up for you below. Also note that all of these titles will be making their console debut on PlayStation platforms.
PS4 has been met with an amazing amount of enthusiasm and excitement from both gamers and developers alike since its launch back in November, and the 6 million gamers who have already bought PS4 have really embraced this next-generation gaming experience. We’ve got more than 100 games scheduled to launch on PS4 this year alone, including Watch_Dogs, The Elder Scrolls Online, Destiny, and The Order: 1886.
This year’s E3 was a great show for gamers around the world with so many incredible games announced across the industry. It was an amazing experience to be on stage at the press conference to once again reaffirm our commitment to gamers to bring them the most innovative, creative game experiences and make a statement to indie developers around the world that we truly are passionate about their games and support them across the PlayStation ecosystem.
