Gamers, If you haven't a PlayStation 4 yet, Now's the Time

Heighten your experiences and enrich your in-game adventures with the console’s stunning graphics and seamless performance that makes you feel like you are in the games yourself with the PlayStation 4!

5th August was a date to remember for gamers in Malaysia, as the first-ever PlayStation Experience for Southeast Asia region was held at KL Live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. An event that was exclusively held in the United States prior to this, PSX offered fans and avid console gamers an opportunity to try out soon-to-be-released PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games. Amongst the highly-anticipated games that were showcased at the event were Gran Turismo Sport, Detroit: Become Human, and God of War.

For the benefit of those who did not attend the event and could not try out for themselves, here is a consolation prize for you – a sneak peek of some of my favourite upcoming games.

Gran Turismo Sport

Many years after its last iteration, Gran Turismo is back! Bringing graphics that challenge the limits of the PlayStation 4, players are treated to the most realistic racing game on the PlayStation series to date. Put the pedal to the metal and turn your living room into a fast-paced circuit with the Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation 4. Due to be released come October 2017, make sure you do not miss out on the action.

Detroit: Become Human

A wrong decision might lead to inevitable death. Embark on a thrilling adventure with three androids: Kara, Connor, and Markus, each with their own agenda. Whether the characters survive or perish depends on the choices you make throughout the game. The player will also be able to rewind to certain points in the story to reshape decisions previously made. Your decisions have never been more important.

God of War

First the Olympian Gods, now the Nordic Gods. God of War 4 finds the protagonist, Kratos in another strange land – Scandinavia – with his young son Atreus. Unlike its predecessors, this installment will be based on Norse mythology. Kratos is now equipped with new weapons and players will be able to visit some of the nine realms of Norse mythology. This new installment will only feature single-player mode and have elements similar to role-playing games (RPGs). Enough of the spoilers; play it and experience the games yourself.

The games mentioned above are just a handful of the games that will be compatible with the PlayStation 4, the latest-and-greatest addition to Sony’s PlayStation family. Sporting what AMD claims as its most-powerful APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) that it has developed to date, you are guaranteed of flawless gameplay. The console also supports HDR10 high-dynamic-range colour and 4K multimedia playback.

The PlayStation 4 also places an increased emphasis on social interaction and integration with other devices and services. Players are now able to play their favourite games off-console on PlayStation Vita and other supported devices thanks to the “Remote Play” feature. The console also comes with a Share Play function which enables players to stream gameplay online or to friends, while controlling the game remotely. The PlayStation 4’s controls have also undergone upgrades, with improved buttons and analog sticks, a newly-added integrated touchpad, and Microsoft Windows support, amongst the new changes.
