After the disastrous presentation of Xbox One and a few hours after the presentation of Microsoft products at E3, Sony he had served on a silver platter surpass, and far beyond, what was shown by those from Redmond. Certainly the presentation of Microsoft products It had two positive points: it was only game-based and had a fairly dynamic pace.
However, However, the highest cost was for the planet. Only one of these wee wee pads takes approximately XNUMX years to decompose. Putting ourselves in the best of cases, a dog uses XNUMX pad daily for only XNUMX years of his life, so when he is a puppy and when he is elder he would use XNUMX soakers in total. If we take into account that only in Spain there are XNUMX million dogs, mostly of mini race, with greater tendency to use wee wee pads and assuming that at least XNUMX% use them, we are talking about a figure of XNUMX wee wee pads that are used daily. Tons and tons of waste are thrown daily to the planet so that our dog does not spoil our house. Sony it was little by little, reminding us that we still have on the street PS Vita y PlayStation 3, the latter being a system that will still receive strong support from Sony, which cannot be said for the last soulless Japanese laptop.
The poor PS Vita It did not receive significant news and it seems that Sony's support will take a long time to arrive, as it is expected that the company will turn to PS4 during the next few months, and this is something really worrying among the holders of PS Vita, that with resignation, they have to settle for continuous lengths from Sony about "future announcements."
The case of PS3 it's the opposite: The Last of Us, Beyond: Dos Almas, Puppeteer and Gran Turismo 6 are the last great games from Sony for your console. They were also seen Batman: Arkham Origins, which looked a bit green, and will receive exclusive content in PS3, in addition to announcing a console pack with Grand Theft Auto V and a screen-printed headset for $ 299. No mention was made of any reduction of the console, although in some stores we can already find the 12 GB version of the console at about 150 euros.
The time has come to show PS4 to the world, resulting in a machine with a more careful aesthetic than Xbox One, and of a smaller size, especially in thickness. Of course, a few minutes were dedicated, somewhat leaden, to the offer of series, music and television that would reach PlayStation 4.
After this, it was finally time to talk about games, and they began by introducing the new IP of Ready at down for PS4: The Order 1886, a steampunk title set in London and that could be fit within the tps genre. New material from games that we saw in February was also shown, such as Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Drive Club, and INfamous: Second Son.
Quantic Dream left us with our jaw dislodged with the presentation of the technical demo of The Dark Sorcerer: models, textures and animations looked at a level much higher than that seen in their previous games, even in the vast majority of programs shown by Microsoft.
Indie games had a special role, and that is that Sony wants its platform to become a refuge for developers of this type of game. Titles like Transistor, Don't Starve, Mercenary Kings, Octodad, Secret Ponchos, Outlast, Ray's the Dead. Galak-Z and Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee They will arrive first on PS4 than on the rest of the platforms.
Diablo III It reappeared at a Sony conference, reaffirming its versions for PS3 and PS4, which will receive exclusive content compared to the rest of the ports for other platforms. Many people's hair stood on end when Square Enix finally announced that Final Fantasy Versus XIII had become Final Fantasy XV and that it would arrive on PS4, looking graphically spectacular, although the turn to action rpg does not seem to have liked many people. Finally, the icing on the cake was the announcement of the development of Kingdom Hearts 3. Interestingly, Sony does not have the exclusive on either of these two titles.
We were shown a gameplay of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag in its next gen version, which is sure to delight fans of the saga, although as an anecdotal point, highlight the crash of the game in full demo. Ubisoft also brought us new material from Watch Dogs with an intense gameplay that showed the benefits of its playability, although in essence it paints a certain linearity at times. NBA2K14 He also made an appearance and confirmed the version of The Elder Scrolls Online for PS4 (which will also come to Xbox One) By surprise, the game of Mad Max, although what was shown knew little: a short video without gameplay, which was only a declaration of intent about the arrival of this game at the hands of Warner Bros.
After the parade of games, it was time to clarify more information about PlayStation 4. We all know the controversy caused by the measures of Microsoft products us Xbox One with online checking every 24 hours or the thorny issue of used games. Sony clarified that PS4 It will not require a mandatory connection of any kind to play and that the games that the user buys may be sold, loaned or kept forever. All this was accompanied by a thunderous applause from the audience in the auditorium. Although be careful, we must clarify: Sony will not impose DRM on its games, but if a publisher wants to impose some type of measure on one of its titles and that it runs under its servers in online modes, it can apply the restriction it deems appropriate.
The success of PlayStation Plus- Memberships have skyrocketed 144% and are supported by 95% of users. It was detailed that the only membership will be valid for the three Sony platforms, that is, for example, if you are Plus on PS 3, you will be automatically on PS Vita and PS4, and to top it off, the benefits of Plus will be applied to the accounts associated with each console (although it was not specified how many users could be supported) And now comes the bad news: the online game, previously free, will now be paid by being included in the functions of PlayStation Plus. That is, Sony has dazzled the staff these months with the Plus to now give this backstabbing. The truth is that this is unfortunate news, considering that online gambling in the family PlayStation It has been free since PS2. Finally, the live demo of Destiny, from Bungie, surprised locals and strangers by showing quite interesting gameplay and where the multiplayer component predominated. This ambitious project, under the Activision label, promises a lot.
The conference closed with the announcement that PlayStation 4 would reach End of the year (late November or early December) at a price of 399 dollars, 399 euros and 349 pounds sterling, including a controller, 500gb hard drive, headshet and hdmi cable, making it the most economical next-generation system: 100 euros below Xbox One.
The truth is that Sony barely had to lift a finger to do better than Microsoft products. The only negative was the announcement of the paid online game, although they will try to compensate with the benefits of PlayStation Plus, to which it is rumored that they would add new extras, such as the free download of music discs, movies or episodes of series. On a personal level, the most significant thing was that there were not a number of new exclusives that could cover the barrage of only for games that it showed Microsoft products for Xbox One: except The Order, all were multiplatform titles or programs already known. Where did they go Santa Monica y N? Are they reserving something for the GamesCom and Tokyo Game Show? What about The Last Guardian? It is clear that the public's reaction was unanimous and the intention to purchase a new console is clear to many: In all likelihood, the next generation of consoles is already in the hands of Sony.
