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!
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.
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.
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.
This week, we kicked off the Play the Future First promotion at Taco Bell — head over before November 10th and you just might win a PS4 before launch day. 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.
