PlayStation 4 Sales Surpass 7.0 Million Units Worldwide
Congrats to Sony on what is a hell of an achievement so early in this new console cycle. Sony has announced that PS4 hardware has cumulatively sold through more than 7 million units worldwide as of April 6th, 2014. E3 is just around the corner, here’s hoping that they have a stellar software line-up waiting in the wings. You can bet that Microsoft is hard at work with their show as well.
Certainly Majesco and Arc System Works hopes you do, because they’re teasing a new Bloodrayne title. Personally speaking, I’ve always gotten a kick out them. Much like late night B or even C list horror movies, Bloodrayne games are a nice palette cleanser; they keep things interesting before enjoying a meatier AAA experience. That and I love vampires with big boobs.
Sucker Punch is continuing to grow Second Son with features that the community have asked for. Perhaps the most useful is this sweet new Photo Mode. The Second Son patch will hit PSN tomorrow. Below are some of the features in the patch.
A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those, they were extremely helpful!).
If your controller runs out of batteries in the middle of gameplay, your game will pause. Our art director pulled a hamstring scrambling to get his second controller mid-boss-battle, so we needed to fix this.
If you’re choosing expert difficulty, we let you know within the options dialog if you’re qualified for the “Unstoppable” trophy the moment you opt in.
Yep, that’s right, our old friend Sackboy is now available in the latest Playroom update. It’s awesome to see him again, but I also feel bad at all the porn he’s going to have to see now. Oh, Sackboy you’re going to see some sh*t that can’t be unseen.
Microsoft has hit the big red button at their headquarters and unleashed a fresh new firmware update for the Xbox One. This new update will add friend notifications to the system, letting you know when friends sign on and offline. Along with other UI tweaks you expect improved Kinect voice recognition and audio codecs.
In the future, atmospheric pollution has devastated the earth. Harsh penal communities called “Panopticons” now battle to secure what few resources remain.
Born into incarceration, you must work together with up to 7 others in a frenetic blend of action and strategy. Complete your missions, reduce your sentence, and fight your way to freedom.
• Co-operative online combat with up to 8 players. • Intense blend of action, shooter, and strategy gameplay created in collaboration between studios Shift and Dimps. • Select the city you represent and help your city rise in the global ranks as you battle users from other cities and countries. • Customize your fighter’s appearance, class and weapons.
Sony and Naughty Dog have released a trailer for The Last of Us Remastered coming to the PS4. When we say glimpse, we really mean it. While the video is close to a minute and a half, you’re only getting about 14 secs of actual footage. Well, at least it’s something. You can expect TLoS on PS4 this Summer and is available to pre-order now.
