As part of the game’s media, we sometimes know a lot more information than we’d like to. We cover rumors, leaks, get early looks at video games and all that sort of stuff, which sort of takes away the surprise that those of you not involved in the media get to experience every year. I miss those days when I had no idea what was coming until I saw a Gameinformer Magazine show up in my mailbox, and that’s how I found out about the latest big game announcement.
Last year, NKTRNL basically leaked the entirety of Microsoft’s E3 2014 press conference, which was awesome at the time, but once the conference came, we sort of knew everything we were getting. So far, no leak like that has occurred this year, and hell, even the rumor mill is unusually quiet this time of year. Most likely because gaming companies are keeping their cards much closer to their chest this year, and while that may hurt our traffic numbers (oh well), it’s extremely exciting.
We’ve heard lots of rumors concerning Sony’s upcoming titles, but nothing has been for sure confirmed yet. Guerrilla Games’ upcoming game is supposed to be an open world action game with robotic dinosaurs and lush environments. Sony Bend’s upcoming game is supposed to be some type of open world horror game and we don’t really have any idea about what Quantic Dream, Media Molecule or Sucker Punch Studios are developing either. Oh, and I guess we can’t forget about The Lost Guardian…I mean Last Guardian…oops.
PS4 owners also have games like Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, SOMA, The Witness and RiME on the way as well, and we’ve seen next to nothing about most of those titles.
We’re two years into this console generation and it’s about time we find out what exactly is in store for the PS4. The PS4 has had one killer exclusive released so far, in my opinion of course, and that game is Bloodborne. The Order: 1886 was great, but just didn’t reach the potential that many were hoping for. I’m very excited to see what Sony has up their sleeve for this year’s E3 2015 presser and you should be too if you’re a PS4 owner.
No, we’re not here to pit the Xbox One vs the PS4 in this article, we’re strictly focusing on the PS4’s lineup right now, so don’t bother trying to swing the pendulum the other way.
