We thought we knew what Sony is bringing PS4 fans at E3 2017, but perhaps the platform holder is going to surprise us in a big way. Personally, I still like PSX and PS2 games not due to their graphics but because they're fun.
Although Sony has done many things right with PlayStation, and its latest incarnation PS4 has now overtaken the PS2 as since its launch in 2013 largely thanks to some tremendous exclusives, it has gone on to sell nearly 60 million units. According to Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Xbox, players want backward compatibility and Microsoft wants the community to enjoy the best games of the past, present, and future. Meanwhile, "Neon Chrome" and "Spy Chameleon" will both be available on PS4 and PS Vita. In the case of the Sony PlayStation, the company recently revealed their plans for the game box. World of Final Fantasy was actually worse when played on a PS4 Pro until it was patched, and many other games have worse framerates to go alongside the prettier visuals. Layden says that 915,000 of the 3.4 million copies (or about 26 percent) of Guerilla's PS4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn sold this year were digital, evidence of a "shift that changes everything" in the game industry.
It isn't just with video games that Sony hopes to drive interest in PlayStation VR.
An Irish gamer has taken legal action against Sony after he lost more than 140 games due to being banned from the Playstation Network. Here's Parappa the Rapper, but "remastered".
What's up with PlayStation these days? You might appreciate these upgrades, but the increased amount of effort required to do these necessarily keeps the selection limited and the price high. Microsoft is focusing on how great the Project Scorpio development kit is while Sony is keen to discuss how well its PlayStation hardware is selling. Sure $14.99 is a bit expensive for certain games-$9.99 would be a more attractive price point-but the publishers likely set the prices.
I don't have to bust out an old reel-to-reel film projector if I want to watch Casablanca (which Ted Turner once refused to show on television unless it was colorized).
However, in this case, Sony has made a decision to ban the man entirely - and this means that all content purchased on this account is no longer available.
