Before we sign off for the year, we wanted to celebrate the creators who make not only PlayStation.Blog, but this industry in its entirety possible. It’s these studios who create the worlds we yearn to escape to, who write the stories upon whose every word we hang. It’s thanks to them that we can do what we love to do.
As we near the end of 2015 there’s one thing we can all look forward to… No, it’s not the holidays, but Capcom Cup! That’s right, this year’s Capcom Cup will send Ultra Street Fighter IV off in the grandest event possible as 32 of the world’s best meet in San Francisco at PlayStation Experience on December 6th to fight for their piece of the $250,000 prize pool!
Today is a big day for the PlayStation Now games streaming subscription service. We’re adding 105 games to the library, bringing our total count to over 250 subscription games! Without a doubt, this is our biggest release of new content ever!
