Where to even begin? Sony came out swinging, showing us oodles of new Destiny footage, and then just kept swatting ‘em out of the park. They showed us in quick fashion: LittleBigPlanet 3, The Order: 1886, new inFAMOUS: Second Son DLC and more. But they were just getting started.
We finally learned the identity of FROM SOFTWARE’s mysterious “Project Beast”, an all new IP called Bloodborne. They told us about exclusive Beta access to Destiny on the PS4, exclusive Beta access to Battlefield: Hardline, and exclusive Disney Infinity content. Exclusive was rally the word of the night for Sony. Like Magika 2, and the entire upcoming Devolver catalog launching first on PS4 and Vita.
There some great surprises as well, such as a new Suda 51 title, Let It Die, and Abzu, a gorgeous new game from the people behind Journey. There were so many other game announcements that it was hard to cover, but there was plenty of news on the hardware and services fronts as well, like the Playstation TV box being $99, or $139 with controller/game bundle. Certain enabled Sony televisions will be able to play Playstation Now content without a console, and the presence of playable Project Morpheus demos at their booth.
Then there was the announcement of a new exclusive series Powers, a new trailer for the Ratchet & Clank movie, and exclusive content and features in many multiplatform titles, such as being able to invite friends to play Far Cry 4 online, even if they don’t even own the game. Oh, yeah, and a new Uncharted title, A Thief’s End.
