Based on several reports it seems possible that the Playstation 4 Games will likely be the last console games to be released. Not that there will no longer be Playstation games, but you may no longer need a console to play them. Sounds crazy I know, but that is what some of the big wigs of gaming are saying. A summary of what is being said is that the console is just not needed any more, that there are so many possibilities within the online gaming world now, and the technology for cloud computing has increased so much, it seems that the console is just holding more and more people back from being introduced to the Playstation brand.
While the Playstation consoles are amazing, they are expensive… and that price has kept some gamers from being able to take part… especially in secondary markets. The idea with being able to play games without having to purchase the console would certainly introduce the Playstation brand to millions of new users, it would also allow current gamers to be able to use their console funds to purchase additional games, like Uncharted.
It will be awhile before we know if any of this is true, or even logical… but I think at some point we will certainly be a world full of gamers that can access some if not all of the most popular games with out the need for a gaming console.
Uncharted on PS4
A few months ago, in November 2011, the newest game to the Uncharted series released: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. It was such an awesome game, it won multiple awards at Spike’s Annual Video Game Awards, including Best PS3 Game and best Graphics.
So, now that the newest game has won achievements like best graphics, we have to wonder how it will improve. No, we’re not talking story-wise. We mean gaming. And, right now, Uncharted 3 utilizes every possible feature of the PS3. What does that mean?
It means we need a new console. The PS4, which is rumored to release in 2012.
With the rumors going around about the PlayStation 4 under development, we have to assume that the next Uncharted game will release on a brand new console, since it takes so long for testing and development.
RAGE for PS4
In less than a week, a new game is coming to PlayStation: RAGE. On October 4, 2011, everybody will be defending against bandits and mutants in a world close to extinction.
RAGE is a brand new blend of graphics, first-person shooter, and racing game. You get to own a car, buy it upgrades, decorate how you want, and use it to race or out run your opponents.
The world of RAGE is pretty much in chaos: Earth was hit by an asteroid. Before this happened, though, Earth put people in life pods that were buried beneath the surface of the Earth. You play the commander of one such life pod, and when you rise, you realize that humanity is close to extinction as a corrupt government rules the land, and mutants and bandits are cut throat and without mercy. There’s also many useful tutorials, guides and cheats for RAGE. You can check them out to get better at the game.
Amazon always has special deals for game pre-orders. Simply pay the dollar fee and get the game on the day of release (my GOW3 came before I even woke up) and you also get $10 promo credit. That’s pretty awesome, in my opinion.
