We’ve sold a lot of PS4s, you guys have made some incredible costumes for your messengers in Tearaway, Zen Pinball 2 is coming to PS4, the fine folks from XGen Studios gave us some tips to earn a fortune in Super Motherload, and the ultra-weird Doki-Doki Universe launches on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday.
Here we go: it’s the first month of PSN top sellers to include PlayStation 4. We’ve got two separate PS4 charts this month: one that includes the PS3 to PS4 digital upgrade program, and one that doesn’t. The games included in that program did very well either way, of course.
We got some Q&A time with Hideo Kojima himself, our friends at Twitch stopped by to share a few tips for livestreaming on PS4, The Last of Us is getting some new multplayer items, we’ve got some killer Black Friday deals on deck, you can Take the Oath and make your own Killzone Shadow Fall trailer, and the race has begun to become the First to Greatness.
We did it guys! PS4 is out! I’m back home on the west coast after a week in New York City manning the PS4 launch festivities, and as much as I love that city I’m glad to be home playing my shiny, angular new game machine.
In honor of PS4′s launch, we’re gonna rock out a top 20 this week instead of a top 10. I figure if there’s any time to drop a few extras in there, this is it. Plus, well, a lot happened last week!
Let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way first: Diablo III looks good on PS4. The demo I played didn’t stutter or hitch once — 1080p and 60FPS or better throughout, as confirmed by Production Director John Hight when I spoke with him on the show floor — even when three other players jumped in. Everything looks tack-sharp, and plenty of extra bits have been added or tweaked in Diablo III’s PS4 version. Just wait ’till you see the glow of a freshly dropped health globe reflected in a pool of stagnant water.
Just think — this time next month, we’ll be looking at the top sellers on PS4!
Grand Theft Auto V takes the top spot on the final PS3 list of this generation, followed by Battlefield 4, The Wolf Among Us, and NBA 2K14. The Walking Dead and Killzone: Mercenary rocked the PS Vita charts (with a respectable showing from a personal favorite, Persona 4 Golden), and Fatal Frame and its sequel sit at the top of the Classics chart.
The Greatness Exchange is live, the Sale of the Dead is live (with some pretty huge deals on hit games), we saw a new Killzone Shadow Fall story trailer, Telltale’s fantastic The Wolf Among Us is coming to PS Vita, Ryan played PS4 launch title Knack and was surprised by its difficulty, despite its high level of accessibility, I played The Witness on PS4 and was surprised by just how freakin’ gorgeous it is, despite its simplistic art style, and more.
