Sony Presser E3 2014 Notes

09 Jun

Notes for the Sony Presser!

  • Destiny – Cinematic Trailer. PS4 Beta on July 17th and First look Alpha starting TONIGHT only on PS4. The obvious exclusive DLC. Additionally, there will be a 500GB White PS4 bundle that will come with Destiny.
  • The Order 1886 – Cinematic Trailer. This looks much darker and horror esque than the original Order trailer. I am intrigued.
  • Entwined – Artsy game from a new studio that is mostly students. Twin stick gameplay with colors and such. Somewhat interesting. Available right now for $10. PS4 Exclusive.
  • Infamous: Second Sun – Summer DLC; Infamous: First Light. Female main character and stand alone DLC. I don’t really know enough about Infamous: Second Sun to know much about the characters.
  • Little Big Planet 3 – Some new characters introduced (Oddsock ~ A Sackdog, Toggle ~ A strong Sackbro that can shrink, and Swoop a flying Sackbird. Looks just as cute as ever. Not sure how much I care personally but I won’t knock it.Old User created content is backwards compatible with LBP3. November release date.
  • Bloodborne – New IP announcement by From Software. Really dark trailer. Looks pretty violent and gory. Guns and Swords! 2015 date teased.
  • FarCry 4 – Gameplay Trailer. Very pretty. Showed off Climbing Gear, Wing Suit, vehicle hijacking, and what looked like what might be a drop in co-op mode. Players can invite friends that don’t own the game for some co-op action ‘only on the PS4’.
  • Dead Island 2 – Cinematic Trailer. Exclusive beta on PS4.
  • Diablo 3 Evil Edition – Exclusive Dungeon with Last of Us zombies (clickers and etc)

  • Let it Die – New Suda 51 IP. Some serious Deathmatch going on in a really violent live action trailer. PS4 Exclusive.
  • Abzu – New game from Giant Squid (Journey). Very pretty game with what looks like mostly Underwater gameplay.
  • No Man’s Sky – PS4 Exclusive Announcement. Really cool looking Space/Planet exploration sandbox game with procedural generation of planets.
  • Youtube Sharing on PS4 ‘Later this year’
  • Planetside 2 and two other free to play titles announced. A montage of other free to play games also showed with games including Loadout and War Thunder.
  • Playstation Now – Service will be in Open Beta in the US on July 31st with PS3 and PSVita happening ‘soon after.’ Some PSNow titles will also go to Sony TVs.
  • Vita Games mentioned: Child of Light, Tales from the Borderlands, Tales of Hearts R (HYPE), and Minecraft.
  • Playstation TV – Pairs PS4 with device to play stuff on a different TV in your home. Disney Infinity 2 for the PSTV and Vita Next Year. PSTV is a $99 device. There is a $139 bundle with the device, a controller, a digital copy of Lego Movie the game, and 8GB memory cards.
  • Mortal Kombat X – Gameplay Trailer. 4 characters show. Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and 2 characters I don’t know. A character that looks like a bee and acts sort of insectish, and a hulking character with a smaller female character on his back. They fight together. The big guy occasionally uses the girl as a weapon or projectile.
  • Exclusive TV show ‘Powers’ based off the comic of the same name. Free first episode for everyone. Free series for PS+ Subscribers.
  • Ratchet and Clank Movie in 2015.
  • Last of Us remastered – Trailer. July 29th Date. LET THE MILKING COMMENCE.
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – Cinematic Trailer
  • Grand Theft Auto V – Fall PS4 Release. SUCH MILK. MUCH CASH COW. MOO.
  • Batman: Arkham Knight – Gameplay/Cinematic hybrid trailer. Looks pretty. Show off some more Batmobile footage. Strafing hovertank. Exclusive PS4 Scarecrow missions.
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End – Cinematic Reveal. 2015 date given.

Sony had a lot of stuff to show that I am pretty interested in. Uncharted 4, MKX, No Man’s Sky, Magicka 2, Bloodborne, The Order 1886, Destiny, and FarCry 4 all look really good to me and I’m pretty excited about them. Battlefield Hardline still looks really good. If any of those are PC games I’ll be getting them on the PC first though. I’m a little disappointed that they didn’t mention more stuff for the Vita. The Vita/PS TV thing is pretty cool though but I’m not really its market. I’m really hype for Tales of Hearts R though. I think the most exciting things were Bloodborne, The Order 1886, and Uncharted 4 as far as PS4 exclusives go. Overall not a bad show, but nothing too mind blowing either. Pretty safe showing.

Nintendo’s digital event is tomorrow morning. I’ll be making a post for it as well, expect it later tomorrow afternoon though. After that I will make a post about the things I’m really excited about.
