My excitement for The Witness may, admittedly, be amplified by my sentimental nature (it is the first PS4 game I ever laid eyes on, after all). After getting a chance to play it at an event last week, however, I’m relieved to know that my excitement is justified.
This week on PlayStation.Blog, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX got confirmed, we saw a new Kingdom Hearts III gameplay video, you’ve got options when picking up inFAMOUS Second son, we debuted our new TV spot, Ryan went hands-on with Resogun (give it to me now), you can go play PS4 at select retailers now, Zen Studios dropped by to show us Castlestorm, Jonathan Blow gave us a closer look at his upcoming PS4 title, The Witness, and more.
PS4 designer Tetsu Sumii talked to us about the process of creating this gorgeous new piece of hardware, Injustice: Gods Among Us is coming to PS Vita, we learned more about two upcoming, disturbing games: SOMA and Daylight, Soul Sacrifice is getting one last update that’ll score you a bunch of free quests, you can listen to the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack on Music Unlimited, Doctor Strange is getting a pinball table courtesy of our friends at Zen Studios, Ryan went hands-on with Strider and came away pretty well impressed by it, and more.
Grand Theft Auto V topped the PS3 charts, with Diablo III securing the runner-up spot. FIFA 14 made an impressive entrance, and Madden NFL 25 is holding steady at #4.
Killzone: Mercenary ruled the PS Vita charts, followed by the gorgeous Rayman Legends and the nerve-wracking Spelunky. Pixelated survival horror adventure Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut had a strong first month, showing up in the #5 spot.
Lots of Destiny news this week! First, the official box art reveal. Next, we put your Twitter questions in front of Bungie, and they replied in kind. Finally, pre-order the game to get in on the beta, and be the first to play.

We also unveiled the pre-order exclusive Knightfall-inspired costumes for Batman: Arkham Origins, you got your first look at the DLC plan for The Last of Us (can’t wait to get that single-player content), Ryan snuck away some juicy details on Thief for PS4 (including how they’ll be incorporating DualShock 4 tech for the game), October’s Instant Game Collection lineup got officially revealed, and lots, lots more.
