This week we had the chance to celebrate two important video game milestones. September 9th, 2015 marked the 20th anniversary of PlayStation in North America. It also marked one year since Destiny first launched on our platform. I had the chance to celebrate these two events on a livestream earlier this week with our friends from Bungie, where we unboxed the gorgeous Limited Edition Destiny: The Taken King PlayStation 4 Bundle and played through our PlayStation exclusive Strike.
The Force is about to get a whole lot stronger with PlayStation. I just got off the stage at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, where I introduced a very special limited edition Darth Vader-inspired PS4 system that will be available as part of two Star Wars bundles available November 17th (pre-orders starting soon). Check it out!
Since Destiny’s launch in September, Guardians on PlayStation have enjoyed an expanding host of exclusive co-op Strikes, Crucible maps, exotic weapons (including the dreaded Hawkmoon), and more.
Hello, PlayStation fans! I’ve been writing this blog from the conference back stage, and I’m so glad I can finally talk about the next Call of Duty. Everyone here at PlayStation couldn’t be more thrilled about tonight’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 news and what it means for the PlayStation Nation.
What do Shaun White, Snoop Dogg, Steph Curry, Yasiel Puig, Shuhei Yoshida, and I have in common? Up until yesterday, absolutely nothing… but as of today, out of some bout of dumb luck, Shuhei Yoshida and I are this month’s PlayStation HEROES, complete with our very own superpowers! Check it out:
From the minute we saw Destiny at Bungie, we loved it, and we thought it was the exact kind of game PlayStation fans would fall in love with…and you did. You spent so much time trading in items to the Cryptarch, hiding in terror waiting for a Strike teammate to respawn, or just standing outside of a cave like maniacs firing blindly into the abyss.
Anyone who buys Far Cry 4 on PS4 or PS3 will receive 10 keys to send to your PSN friends, letting them join you in Kyrat for a free two-hour trial period, even if they don’t own a copy of the game. As an added bonus, your friends will get a currency boost for playing the trial if they end up purchasing the full game!
What a week! Since Destiny launched one week ago, it has officially become the biggest PS4 game launch in North America ever. The game broke records for being the fastest purchased and most played PS4 game during its first week on sale. In fact, last week was our single biggest PS4 hardware sales week since Christmas 2013! That’s a lot of PS4s. Thanks, Guardians!
