Sony has had quite the E3 experience with a number of high-profile announcements it made during its presentation. From Uncharted 4: A Thief's End to Far Cry 4 co-op modes, to a brand new Bloodborne title, Sony dropped quite a few napalms that will offer all the gaming fixes for all the Sony fanboys.
This year's E3 event, as expected, created a lot of buzz and enthusiasm among fans and players alike, with Sony primarily sitting in the midst of it all. For instance, we here at GizBot may have seen a few minutes of the ever-struggling Nathan Drake pulling himself up from the ground via A Thief's End, but that was actually enough to point us toward the direction the gaming fraternity is heading before the end of the year.
"To ensure that PlayStation is above all else the best place to play," explained Andrew House, Sony Computer Entertainment president and CEO, in terms of Sony's PlayStation strategy since last year's E3. "We know what best means: It means the best visual quality, it means choice, it means not being a lone gamer but part of a extensive community of rivals and friends."
Also, with its presentation heading toward the direction it wanted, Sony's biggest moment came during the end of its presentation when the company showed off the first footage of the game that every PS4 owner is looking to add to their wishlist - Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
But while these are all big name announcements, there were several others which, although not that big in stature, were nonetheless important in their own right. However, we fear that some of them might never get the kind of recognition they deserve.
So we take this opportunity to mention those few announcements that might not be that big in stature but nonetheless important. Check the slider below to know more about them.
This may not be that big a deal to most, but for us selected few, it's as big as any other game announcement made during the E3. Sony announced at the event that YouTube will be heading over to the PlayStation 4 this year.
Apart from that, in addition to the integrated sharing functionality, a YouTube app on PS4 will become available (just like on PS3) where you can access your favorite YouTube channels, videos and personalities.
Sure there are great games like the new Uncharted and Bloodborne that are heading over to the PS4, but do spare a moment and consider the beauty that is The Order: 1886.
A brand new steampunk game where an old order of knights keep all of the world safe from half breed monsters sounds more than a good deal to us, although there are chances that the game might be lost in time with all the other big name announcements happening beside it.
Moreover, users can pre-order from a participating retail store or from the PlayStation Network and get the Knight's Arsenal DLC which includes both the Red Lightning Pack and the Arsonist Pack. Need we say more?
This is one of those "small" games that end up making your day. And after keeping its lips sealed for so long, Sony has finally that LittleBigPlanet 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 this November.
"Sackboy is back and for the first time ever joined by three new friends - OddSock, Swoop, and Toggle. Each one of these new playable characters has unique abilities, which brings new dynamic gameplay and expands the inventive possibilities in Create mode," Sony wrote.
We are quite sad to say that everyone we asked about Entwined, they were either not interested, or didn't think it to be that big a deal. But the truth of the matter is Pixelopus, a new group within Sony World Wide Studios, revealed and launched its debut game Entwined for the PS4, the PS3 and PS Vita systems.
To be perfectly honest, the game is beautiful, addictive and an abstract action/arcade game about two souls who are in love but can't be together. A love angle invovling a fish and a bird? We are listening, Sony.
These free-to-play titles from Sony may not be that great an offering, but it surely beats the stuffing out of all those games for which you pay up only to regret it later.
Guns Up!, Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, BigFest and PAIN free to play are just a few to name at this point. And you will be amazed at others that are also in store.
