It’s time to head back to the original scare-fest with Resident Evil HD - or whatever they end up calling it. The folks at Capcom responsible for letting the world know that Resident Evil’s 2002 remake is going to come to the future in a variety of release modes have given very little information to the public - but we’ve got what you seek.
This review is going to be short for one reason, and one reason only: there’s not much to say. PlayStation Now works, and it works great, but until its pricing model is changed to be more like Netflix, I can’t imagine Sony having a massive amount of success with it. Not because it’s not worth the price, mind you.
After a long wait, PlayStation Now Open Beta will be arriving for all PlayStation 4 owners in both the United States and Canada starting tomorrow. Thus far, PS Now has been in a private beta that some lucky gamers have had access to, but that'll all change tomorrow when Sony removes the shackles and begins seeking mass feedback on the offering.
Though it’s being launched for Xbox One this week with much fanfare, Sony’s response to EA Games initiative with all-you-can-eat gaming may have dire implications. Apparently EA went to Sony as well at Microsoft about EA Access and only Microsoft said yes. Sony decided the program wasn’t worth the hassle.
Japan is a very special place where obsession goes deep. So very deep for some games, in this instance, that a gamer would purchase a PlayStation 4 branded specifically for that game, and that game alone. Two new versions of the PlayStation 4 are being released for the games The Last of Us Remastered and Destiny - currently in Beta gameplay mode this month.
On the morning of July 17th at approximately 11AM PST, we’ll begin seeing keys sent out for the Public Beta for Destiny. This game will be playable starting on the 17th by the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, while the Xbox One and Xbox 360 will have to wait until the 23rd of this month. Destiny Beta for the Xbox One will come in at around 12.63GB - massive - and we expect the PS4 version to deliver something similar.
For a relatively limited time - the rest of this month - those with PlayStation Plus will be able to access two most-excellent games on their PlayStation 4 gaming consoles. Today we’re having a brief look at TowerFall Ascension and Strider - aka the rebirth of a couple of classic genres, if you’d be so kind.
This morning we’re seeing Evolution Studios show off DRIVECLUB’s dynamic weather system in two video clips. In addition to seeing how this weather system works, we’re also getting details on the PlayStation 4 bundle that’ll be offered starting at the launch of the game.
The Beta for Destiny will begin on the 17th of July, 2014, at 10AM PDT. This is a Thursday, and the first wave of openings will begin for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 only. The Xbox One and Xbox 360 opening will be beginning the following Wednesday.
The Beta for the otherworldly game Destiny has been confirmed for July 17th, 2014, and will indeed be launching as planned. When the Destiny Alpha was extended, word traveled fast that the Beta might be changed - as it turns out, only the details within the launch are different, not the date.
