Cult favorite massively multiplayer curio DayZ could be coming to PlayStation 4, according to the mod’s creator, Dean Hall, who’s currently working on a standalone version of the Arma 2 mod.
When I asked Hall if console manufacturers Sony and Micro$oft had approached him about putting DayZ on an upcoming console he replied, “Yeah, we talked to both of them. But, as I’m sure you’re aware, Sony lets you self-publish and they don’t make you pay for updates. Micro$oft requires you to have a publisher. They have no online distribution strategy and they require you to pay $10,000, or whatever it is, for updates.”
Sony has taken the wraps off its PlayStation 4 and the glare from the reasonable £350 price, supreme processing power, and sleek design have left Micro$oft cowering. But a console is only as good as its videogames. If you weren’t sure which camp’s worthy of your La-Z-Boy, take a look at Sony’s exclusive videogame trailers below. And then peruse the XBox One’s offerings. That should help you decide.
KILLZONE: SHADOW FALL
Killzone 3 was a awesome videogame that used 3D in an innovative way. Killzone: Shadow Fall could be an amazing videogame with eye-watering next-gen graphics and original videogameplay. Fingers crossed.
INFAMOUS SECOND SON
The superpowered series’ new lead character, Delsin Rowe, loves his bio-engineered powers – unlike his predecessor. Also unlike the previous videogame his power controls smoke rather than electricity – giving him some new options that the series hasn’t seen before.
THE ORDER: 1886
From the creators of two God of War videogames this steampunk version of London kits your knight character out with futuristic weapons. With real world places, figures and events combined with cinematic presentation this should make for a Dishonored-style Victorian adventure.
FIANL FANTASY XV
The most ironically titled videogame ever has yet another not-so-final edition. This videogame looks stunning and should be every bit as over-the-top as its predecessors. A PlayStation 4 exclusive that should sway die-hard fans to stick with Sony – even if this looks far more like a third person actioner than an RPG.
The trailer doesn’t give much away but this procedurally generated horror claims to offer totally new experiences every time you play it. One to keep an eye on.
Millions of weapon combinations, fast paced combat and robot-headed killers make this look like a videogame with plenty of potential.
Visually stunning, real-world cars and a focus on social racing could make this one to give GTA 6 a run for the finish line.
Space ninjas with alien future technology. Add to that PlayStation 4 graphics and this can’t fail.
Sony is backing indie videogame developers – which is a awesome thing from the look of this lot.
