Sony has recently released the box art for its upcoming game, Destiny. Announced on the PlayStation Blog, gamers can play any of the three classes of Guardians, Titan, Hunter, or Warlock.
One good thing to look forward to is the Destiny gameplay trailer, promised to be revealed in the next 24 hours.
The box art for Destiny has finally been revealed.
Another game to look forward to for the PS4 is Killzone: Shadow Fall. While there have been a number of info leaks about the game, this time, Forbes reports that the game will be a 50GB game.
Normally, this would be a nightmare for those who just want to immediately play. Imagine the hours of download that you would need to do , the hours of waiting, and the moments of hand-wringing to stop yourself from checking your game yet again.
This is where the PS4's Play As You Download feature will definitely come in handy. First introduced by Sony, and now also a part of the Xbox One console, this new feature will become an important tool no doubt once it becomes a perfected system.
For now, Sony's next move would be to find a way to make use of the cloud. If one game was already 50GB, imagine how that can affect the 500GB worth of memory that the PS4 can take. The Xbox One has been flaunting its cloud power since Day One, and though it has received some flak when the words "Always on" or "DRM" are heard, there is something positive to be said of cloud power.
It may only be a matter of time until Sony enables a similar capability to the PS4.
Delay for the PS4 in one market
Despite Sony's strong opening, the announcement of new game bundles with the PS4, and overall winning streak in polls, it seems that the company will still encounter stock shortage for its next-gen console PS4.
Sony has recently announced that the planned release date for South Africa, which was on December 6, 2013 to a yet unspecified date. However, MyGaming reports that the company has confirmed that it will aim to deliver the consoles before Christmas 2013.
Online games supplier BT Games, on the other hand, has given a December 13 and a December 12 midnight launch. There have been no other announcements as to possible pricing changes, but the launch dates are definitely on hold at best.
