The PS4 is almost upon us, and that means that this week’s PlayStation Store update is heavily laden with the hefty digital goodies and games, for you to enjoy on launch day.
Of course, there is also the latest PS+ content out today, bringing Contrast and Resogun to PS4 PS+ users, as well as GRID 2 and Guacamelee! (Cross-Buy) for PS3, Sonic & SEGA All Starts Racing Transformed for Vita and GTA: Libert City Stories for PSP with Vita compatibility. Quite the bundle of fun!
But the real headliners will be the PS4 launch games. Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack are both £52.99 exclusives, while EA have brought their PS4 pricing down to the only slightly less unreasonable £54.99 for Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, NBA Live 14, Madden NFL 25 and Need for Speed: Rivals. There’s also Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Call of Duty: Ghosts at £54.99, while Lego Marvel Super Heroes and Injustice: Gods Among Us are £52.99. Just Dance 2014 is just £39.99, though, and NBA 2K14 seems to have been tucked away in a corner, at the regular £54.99 price.
Contrast and Resogun are both ordinarily £12.79 when bought outside of PS+, while Super Motherload is £11.99 and Trine 2: Complete Story £14.49, though both of these have PS+ discounts. Putty Squad brings that 90s goodness with it for £13.99, and Angry Birds Star Wars clearly wants to play with the big retail releases, considering its £32.99 price tag…
Almost of these games have various bits of DLC or Season Passes available for varying prices, and the PS4 Digital Upgrade Programme is also in full swing, for the relevant games.
But the PS3 also gets a little love, as Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition arrives for £29.99 (also out for Vita, but at £34.99, strangely) and Batman Arkham Collection brings the trilogy in a nice bundle for a princely £55.99, just like Tales of Xilia – Discovery Edition. Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory has a delightfully odd name, at £31.99, the same price as Young Justice: Legacy, while Painkiller Hell & Damnation is lowest of all at £19.99.
The Vita gets Fort Defense for £3.99, but is largely about the Escape Plan Collection‘s release, bringing the game to
PS3 and PS4 in a Cross-Buy promotion for £15.99, and also sees Flower arriving from PS3 to both Vita and PS4, at £6.49 and with Cross-Buy. Flower’s rather pretty on Vita, by the way, and a freebie, if you owned it before.
Beyond all of this, there’s the usual smattering of DLC and the odd discount here and there, the details of which can be seen on the PS Blog.
So, anything tickle your fancy?
