There’s no doubting the support Sony gives when it comes to independent developers and the unique software they put out. Last year’s Journey was not only an incredible experience, but it won numerous awards including game of the year...and it’s a PS3 exclusive. This morning, it was revealed on the Playstation Blog that the PS Store will add an "Indie Games" category to the mix to "highlight some of the most unique gaming experiences on PlayStation platforms." To boot, they’re even giving special discounts on a few of their popular titles just to celebrate the situation, as shown below. Let’s all be hipsters tonight, guys.
- Retro City Rampage: 50% discount to all from May 7th to May 21st
- Papo & Yo promotional bundle containing the soundtrack and game: 40% discount (55% for Playstation Plus subscribers) from May 7th to May 21st
- Zombie Tycoon 2: Free for Playstation Plus subscribers for a limited time
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.
