PlayStation 4 owners also receive access to a new dynamic theme, 15 PlayStation Network avatars and the Play Pod and amazarashi Pod skins. Steam players, meanwhile, get two new wallpapers and an in-game Valve accessory.

“Square Enix has asked me for a comment to mark the announcement of the NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHA Edition,” said game director Yoko Taro. “Now that you mention it, NieR: Automata was first released on the 23rd of February 2017 in Japan, 7th of March 2017 in America and on the 10th of March 2017 in Europe. I have noticed something bizarre and fascinating about these numbers: if you write these dates out in long-form as 20170223, 20170307 and 20170310, then add all three numbers together, you get 60510840. If you take that total, split the digits in two down the middle, making 6051 and 0840, and then subtract the second number from the first… unbelievably you get 5211!! That’s right, a number completely devoid of all meaning! Just like life really, isn’t it? Over and out.”

Okay, Yoko.

Square Enix also announced that NieR: Automata, originally released in February 2017, has sold an impressive 3.5 million units digitally and physically, up from three million in June. Both the Japanese publisher and series creator, Yoko Taro has been somewhat coy on the subject of a new game in the franchise, with producer Yosuke Saito only willing to state that the series has a 50% chance to continue.

NieR: Automata Game Of The YoRHa Edition hits PlayStation 4 and Steam on February 26, 2019, for $39.99

Sony Unveils Plans to Expand Studios, Improve PS Now

Published

PlayStation 5 Sony

Sony held its annual Investors Relations Day today where the company has unveiled plans to maintain its position as market leader of next-gen consoles.

The company enforced that it believes in console generations, especially with the next-generation PlayStation 5 console, capturing the power of new technology to bring transformative and immersive gaming experiences.

The key to Sony delivering its promise will be the new partnership with Microsoft, using the rival company’s Azure cloud technology to improve streaming services. PlayStation Now currently runs on Sony’s servers and has about 700,000 subscribers, however, the new deal could help grow their subscriptions to 5 million.

PlayStation Now will be improved to offer 1080p resolution streaming and beyond, and the quality of content will be enhanced as well, suggesting there may not be as much of a delay with the release of AAA titles on PlayStation Now as there has been so far.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 had immense success from its own exclusive games made by internal studios such as Guerrilla Games, Sony Santa Monica and Naughty Dog. Both God of War and Spider-Man topped most players’ and critics’ GOTY lists in 2018 – both PS4 exclusive games.

Jim Ryan also confirmed plans to invest further in its game development by expanding Sony Worldwide Studios. This would be either through organic growth or acquisitions.
