Sony’s press conference took place much later in the day than Microsoft’s and – like Microsoft – focused almost exclusively on games (certainly not a bad thing). We here at KT are X-biased, but to our Sony brethern, I offer these pretty trailers from the 2014 Sony Playstation E3 Briefing.

POLL RESULTS: THE KILLING TIME COMMUNITY’S PICK FOR BEST VIDEO GAME OF 2013 IS….

The 2013 KT Game of the Year is Batman Arkham Origins.  The voting on this was the closest of any poll we’ve ever run.  A last-minute surge put Origins over the top over Grand Theft Auto V.  GTA tied The Last of Us (which I’m tremendously bummed I won’t get to play as an XBOX guy) for second place.   Continue reading POLL RESULTS: THE KILLING TIME COMMUNITY’S PICK FOR BEST VIDEO GAME OF 2013 IS….

Sony Announces Playstation Now Cloud-Based Gaming Service

Playstation Now, CES

Sony has taken a huge step toward something long-time gamers have always grumbled about when transitioning console generations: the elimination of backward compatibility as an issue.  I will paste Geek Tyrant’s coverage of the story that broke this morning from the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but essentially any Playstation game from any console era will be available for streaming and playing on certain tablets, computers and the Playstation 4.  That is a paradigm shift for the entire video game industry.  Think of Nintendo’s twenty-year library and, as an Xbox guy, the ability to play any game since HALO on my Xbox One if the other two manufacturers follow suit.  If not, this give Sony a huge new advantage in the console wars.  GT’s coverage after the break: Continue reading Sony Announces Playstation Now Cloud-Based Gaming Service

POLL: What Was The Best Video Game of 2013?

VOTE AT KILLING TIME HOMEPAGE

It’s the end of the year, so that means here comes the “best of 2013” polls.  We’re going to try to accelerate the schedule and do them every three weeks, so that will give readers until January 17th before we post the official choice of the Killing Time Community for Best Video Game of 2013.  While there are still a lot of Oscar contenders trickling out into the theaters throughout January and February, the video game industry seems content to carpet bomb consumers with the entirety of their good products for the year in a six week period from October to Thanksgiving.

E3: Sony Press Conference – Playstation 4 Drops a Bomb on Microsoft Plus Trailers for Destiny, Thief, Batman, Watch Dogs, FF XV, Kingdom Hearts III and More

PS4, Playstation 4, Sony

Sony laid out a very impressive press conference, both in terms of games  and hardware.  More importantly, it took a direct shot at Microsoft’s choices on the Xbox One and stated clearly it would impose no restrictions on DRM for used games, will not require offline users to “check in” periodically online and will debut at $399 ($100 below the Xbox One).  Those that have PlayStation Plus memberships will see them carry over to the PS4 (no backward compatibility with PS3 games).  Sony may have just won the next console war by simply countering Microsoft’s idiocy.  I, for one, looking at the two choices, would pick the Playstation 4 right now.  That’s something I never dreamed I would say going into these announcements.

A very, very impressive slate of game trailers, including new looks at Batman: Arkham Origins and Bungie’s Destiny, as well as The Elder Scrolls Online, Thief: Out of the Shadows, Transistor, Saints Row IV, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, DuckTales: Remasterd, The Last of Us, Destiny of Spirits, Doki Doki Universe, Killzone: MercenaryTwo Souls, Mad Max, Knack, inFamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadowfall, Drive Club, Watch Dogs and The Order: 1886   are below:

Later, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XV and the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III will also be coming exclusively to PS4, giving Sony a huge edge over Microsoft in games announced thus far.
