PlanetSide 2, Sony Online Entertainment’s long-awaited sequel to the popular MMOFPS, was originally released as a free-to-play game on PC last year. It was extremely well received by both critics and fans, and Sony has consequently announced a PS4 release for the title.
Recently, Sony has made a huge effort in welcoming indie developers onto PlayStation platforms, and the results speak for themselves; incredible original experiences like Journey and The Unfinished Swan, and impressive ports such as Thomas Was Alone and Terraria. So it’s pretty frickin’ awesome to hear that this philosophy will continue with the PlayStation 4.
Ubisoft has announced that Aveline de Grandpré, the heroine in Assassins’ Creed III: Liberation, will be returning in Assassin’s Creed IV.
She will be featured in missions exclusive to the PS3 and PS4 versions of ACIV.
Without a doubt, the most welcome news to come out of Sony’s conference was that the PS4 will support used games, and won’t require an internet connection. But almost as good as that was the fact that PlayStation Plus subscriptions will incorporate PS4 games and features at no additional cost.
Rather than show a quick trailer and leave it at that, EA has been streaming live footage of Battlefield 4′s online multiplayer throughout E3. Here’s a 6-minute video that includes some of the best moments.

Let’s be honest; the reveal of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in March was undermined just a bit by the fact that everyone had already made the connection between The Phantom Pain and MGS back in December. For this reason, it’s vital that the game is presented in a positive light at E3. Well, we’ve watched the trailer, and Kojima doesn’t need to worry.
Atlus has announced that Daylight, an upcoming survival horror game developed by Zombie Studios, will be available on PS4 early next year.
Undoubtedly the biggest surprise to come out of Ubisoft’s conference yesterday was the announcement of Tom Clancy’s The Division. The publisher arguably stole the show at E3 2012 with Watch Dogs, so could it be possible they’ve done the same this year with The Divide?
Judging by the first footage, they just might have.
Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 4 will cost $399/€399/£349 and will release in the US and Europe this holiday season.
