Update: The release date is August 19th in North America, August 20th in Europe.
The original Hotline Miami is coming to PS4 and it’s coming very soon. How do we know? Because the Hotline Miami team themselves just announced it on Twitter. We don’t have an exact date yet but you can bet we’ll be hearing about that very soon.
Hotline Miami (the first one) is coming to PlayStation 4 this month and you can beat people to death by shaking the gamepad.

Of course, there’s also the bit about being able to beat people to death by shaking the controller. I can’t think of a better use for a good controller shaking than digitally beating someone’s head against the floor. Blowing off steam in a video game just got a little easier, but this might be a good time to introduce tethers for the DualShock 4.
