This Week in PlayStation (6/23/14)


Well its that time again, after another weak showing of news (post-E3 news is usually slow) its time to wade into the stories of the week.  First up is the news that ten games have been announced for pre-load availability on the PS4, marking a move gamers have been waiting for as select titles will allow you to download the file before the games release, allowing you to play it the moment it is officially released without waiting to buy and download it in its entirety.  The full list can be found in the article linked here.  In other news Sony has also made it easier to port mobile games to the PS Vita/PS TV which means your favorite iOS and Android games could be making their way to Sony’s handheld soon!  In game news we have a couple stories about Destiny.  First up, according to an Amazon listing, the PS4/PS3 exclusives for Destiny are timed exclusives and will be coming to XBone/360 in fall 2015.  No word from Bungie or Activision if that is true however.  The stats for the Destiny Alpha have also coming out, boasting over 6 Million player games and nearly 150 Million Primary Weapon kills.  The entire list of rather impressive numbers can be found here.



In First-Party game news, inFAMOUS: First Light, the stand-alone DLC for inFAMOUS Second Son, has been earmarked for release on the PSN Store for August 26th, though this has not yet been confirmed by Sony or Sucker Punch.  In other news The Last of Us: Remastered has seen a price drop from $59.99 to $49.99, so if you have pre-ordered your copy a refund should be coming your way.



This week sees a plethora of discounts which can be found here, as well as Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Vita) for free!  Keep in mind that next week is the first Tuesday of July, which means new PS Plus games.  It will also mean the introduction of the new format which will see all free games available all month long starting next Tuesday, so look out for an update on what will be free later this week.
