E3 Recap – Sony

PlayStation4-PS4-BlackLogo

Well E3’s subpar performance this year took a complete 180 when Sony stepped up to the plate.  Sony finally showed the public the Playstation 4 and released their current games in development for the console:

  • The Order
  • Killzone: Shadowfall
  • Driveclub
  • inFamous: Second Son
  • Knack
  • The Dark Sorcerer
  • Transistor
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Kingdom Hearts 3
  • Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag
  • Watch Dogs
  • NBA2k14
  • Elder Scrolls Online
  • Mad Max
  • Destiny

Sony also announced a price tag of $399 and used game compatibility, which was met with an impressive roar of approval. Showing multiple live gameplay demos from titles such as Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Watch Dogs, and Destiny, Sony made a point to show their superiority over Microsoft’s Xbox One. Combined with their surprisingly well done presentations and their emphasis on gameplay trailers (and not that pre-rendered, trying to pass off as gameplay Microsoft and EA bullshit), Sony has the approval of many an anxious gamer.

While Sony did impressive, apparently one will need Playstation Plus service to access multiplayer online. Still the price is manageable at less than five dollars a month, but it’s still an unwelcome fee. More details will be unveiled at a later time.

I’m really not the type of person to pick sides, as lawful neutral is my preferred, natural alignment, but Sony just blew Microsoft out of the fucking water on this one, and with Nintendo Direct coming tomorrow, Microsoft is going to have to do something drastic to keep up.
