PlayStation®4

Only on PlayStation

Since the biggest console launch in history back in November, PS4 momentum continues with more than 7 million units sold worldwide. SCEA will strengthen its robust software portfolio with new game announcements revealed live on stage at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. Featured titles included The Order:1886; Bloodbourne™, a new IP from critically acclaimed game director, Hidetaka Miyazaki; Little Big Planet™ 3; inFAMOUS First Light; and Entwined, a new IP from Pixelopus, a small team within San Mateo Studio composed of recent graduates from various academic programs, such as Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center and San Jose State's Animation Program. Entwined was immediately made available for PS4 via PlayStation Store for $9.99. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and The Last of Us™ Remastered, by acclaimed developer Naughty Dog, rounded out the press conference demonstrations from SCE Worldwide Studios.

Play it First, Play it Better

SCEA also debuted some of the biggest and best partner titles including Far Cry 4, which was demonstrated live for the first time in co-op mode. PlayStation gamers who buy Far Cry 4 at launch this November on either PlayStation®3 (PS3) or PS4 can invite some of their PSN friends to play with them even if they don't own the game. In addition, SCEA announced that starting this Thursday and lasting through the weekend, PS4 owners around the world will get a chance to play the Destiny First Look Alpha by visiting www.greatnessawaits.com/Destiny. PlayStation gamers will also get their hands on the Destiny Beta first, starting July 17. The Destiny experience on PlayStation features an incredible amount of exclusive in-game content for PS4 and PS3, including weapons, armor sets, ships, an entire strike and multiplayer map.

At the press conference, first gameplay of key franchises Dead Island 2 and Mortal Kombat X were unveiled, along with a new partnership with Disney Infinity that includes an exclusive Disney Infinity 2 collector's edition for PS3 and PS4 where the Incredible Hulk will only be available at launch on PlayStation.
