Phew! Team PlayStation is hard at work putting the finishing touches on PlayStation Experience 2016. I have a feeling that it’s going to be truly special.
With thousands of you flying in from all over the country — even the world! — it’s time to provide a few more details on what awaits this December 3 and 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.
Leading up to the release of The Last Guardian on December 6(!), we’ve been moved by some of the beautiful art fans have created to honor Team Ico and Japan Studio’s story of adventure and companionship. We’ve collected a few of our favorite pieces here with the permission of their artists, and asked them to share some insight about their craft.
Gamers are at the heart of everything we do, and our new campaign focuses on one of the things we love most: adventure. Starting with the original PlayStation more than 20 years ago, we’ve always strived to bring innovative ideas and exciting new adventures to our fans.
Deserted factories. Science experiments gone awry. Virtual worlds enclosed in cassette tapes. This is Small Radios Big Televisions, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
PlayStation has had a long and storied history with the Final Fantasy franchise, which is why we are so excited that Final Fantasy XV will be coming to PS4 with a Limited Deluxe Edition Bundle.
More than three and a half years ago, I stood on stage in New York to unveil PlayStation 4, which captured our vision for the future of gaming. That vision placed the gamer at the center of the PlayStation ecosystem and empowered developers to create transformative experiences. This afternoon I returned to New York for another PlayStation Meeting to discuss the evolution of the PlayStation 4 platform and introduce PS4 Pro. This new high-end PS4 will sit alongside the new slimmer, lighter PS4, which we officially unveiled today.
The new standard PS4 is starting to ship to retailers now and will be available by September 15 for a suggested retail price of $299.99 USD ($379.99 CAD), representing great value for gamers who haven’t joined the PS4 community just yet. Our engineering and design teams collaborated to consolidate PS4’s high-performance technology into a smaller, more energy efficient form factor. When comparing the new PS4 model to the current model, we’ve reduced volume by 30 percent, weight by 16 percent, and power consumption by 28 percent. Despite the sleek design, the new model packs all of the same powerful components that have made PS4 the best place to play.
