Welcome back! This month, Tom Clancy’s The Division topped the PlayStation 4 charts, followed closely by an impressive debut for Ska Studios’ Salt and Sanctuary. Rocket League rounds out the top three, with strong showings from MLB The Show 16 and the ever-popular Minecraft just after that. Read on for the full lists, and let us know who you think is going to take top honors in April!
The future is looking bright for PlayStation VR, PS4’s upcoming virtual reality platform launching this October. The PlayStation.Blog team recently had an opportunity to play a host of new demos, each showcasing impressive variety and ingenuity. Here are our thoughts so far:
We’re two Blogcasters down this week, but that doesn’t mean less content. No no, dear reader, we’ve got a straight-up cornucopia of gaming goodness for you in Episode 201, including impressions from our big PlayStation VR GDC extravaganza and no less than three (count ’em!) interviews. Please — listen in.
This week, we welcome developers from all over the world to San Francisco to attend Game Developers Conference 2016. This is an industry-only event, but since we know PlayStation has a diverse, far-reaching audience we wanted to put all of the info for our panel discussions in one easily-accessible place for those who might find it useful.
Tom Clancy’s The Division launches on PS4 on March 8th, 2016… that’s tomorrow! Set in a representation of New York ravaged by a biological attack, Ubisoft Massive’s third-person, cover-based shooter features a heavy emphasis on player progression, loot collection, and social interaction.
Welcome back! Campo Santo’s long-awaited Firewatch lit a path to the top of February’s PS4 charts, followed closely by Far Cry Primal and fan-favorite Rocket League. We’ve got some big games launching in March — any predictions for next month’s top downloads?
Welcome back! This week, Ryan talks to Jeremy from PopCap about Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, while Sid finally faces his fear of MOBAs and shares his impressions of Epic’s accessible-yet-hardcore Paragon. Justin is once again crippled by his inability to choose between Destiny and Final Fantasy XIV, and we can only assume Nick is lost in the wilderness somewhere, because he’s not in this episode. I’m sure he’s fine.
On the eve of our penultimate Blogcast recording before episode 200 (I think I did that right), the gang laments the absence of one Powerhouse, talks about our earliest and dearest fighting game memories, reveals next week’s new releases, and keeps on Necrodancin’ and… Tharsin’? Tharsisin’?
