Also, there's apparently a 1.71 PS4 update, because I turned on my PS4 right after this post and there it was. woooo
(edited by thecubsfan on 3.6.14 1917)
I was on playing Battlefield 4 when the update went through during the wee-hours of the morning.
Just in case you were wondering what happens when you are on PSN when the update goes life, you get immediately kicked out of PSN when the PS4 starts to download the update and you MUST update to do anything online.
Games Shown - the Order: 1886 (announced previously as pushed back to 2015) - Destiny (limited release alpha this week, beta on PS3/PS4 on July 17th, a white bundle, exclusive strike on Mars for PS4) - A inFamous: Second Son DLC ("First Light", based around Fetch) will be out in August. Like the one they did for inFamous 2, you don't need to own the game (or still own the game!) to get it. Seemed like a prequel. - Little Big Planet 3 (PS4, has new characters, out in November, LBP 1-2 levels are portable.) - Bloodborne (Victorian era horror, out 2015) - Far Cry 4 (you can invite friends who don't have the game to play way you on PS3/PS4.) - Dead Island 2 (spring 2015, 30 day exclusive beta, and an exclusive level class) - Diablo (will include monsters from The Last of Us) - Battlefield Hardline (PS4 exclusive beta) - Magicka 2 - Grim Fandango (remastered, to PS4 and PS Vita) - Broforce (16 bit more cartoonish Contra?) - Titan Souls (dungeon puzzle solver?) - Not a Hero (8 bit violence) - Hotline Miami 2 - the Talos Principe (puzzler in the style of Myst?) - Let It Die (Polygon: "some cross between Sol and Gladiator") - Abzu (from the art director of Journey) - No Man's Sky (part planet wildlife exploration - where no two people start on the same planet - part space battle) - possibly the best looking game - Mortal Kombat X (gameplay footage shown - noticed that there weren't any visible health meters or other display indicators. Definitely fatalities. This will be a hard "M".) - Ratchet & Clank movie trailer. Noticeable lack of Clank. A(nother) remake of the original game will be out for the PS4 in early 2015. - Last of Us (Remasted ofr PS4, July 29) - Metal Gear Solid 5 - Grand Theft Auto 4 (PS4, Fall 2014 - can transfer progress from PS3 or XBox 360) - Batman: Arkham Knight - the Batmobile having a gun seems kind of not fiting with Batman. Scarecrow interrupts the trailer to cut a promo - he'll have some exclusive PS4 missions. - Uncharted 4 (A Thief's Ends, 2015) - maybe a minute of cut scene footage, with stuff along the liens of "one last time" said.
Other things - pushing how their camera is optional, but demand was more than they were expected - project Morpheus (the headset) is being worked out and can be demoed if you're at E3, but you're probably not. It sounds like you're going to need the camera for the headset. - YouTube is coming to PS4 later this year, including Share Button list. - PlayRoom is getting an update - the "Free to Play" concept was hyped. - PS Now rental service (beta) will start with PS3 on 07/31, with PS4/Vita "shortly after". Over 100 games be available. Nothing specific said about prices/lengths - "we will be experimenting" - PS Vita remains important - pushing PS Now access, Remote Play w/PS4, and 100 games in development - PS TV ($99, or $139 in a bundle that includes a controller) - will pair with PS4, allowing you to play PS4 games, PS Now and other games on other TV in your house. "access to 1000 games at launch." It sounds like you don't even need a PS4 to get access to PS Now via the PS TV device. - preview of Sony TV show "Powers" - which all PS+ users will get for free
Of the stuff I didn't know about, No Man Sky looks most interesting. PS TV could be big deal or could be no deal at all. It's almost worth buying the Playstation TV bundle just to get the controller ($60 value.)
Most of the big games from Monday's presentation - including games like the Order and Uncharted with no firm release date - are now available for preorder. They've also added this line to each pre-order
Cancellations and refunds are not available except where required by law.
Why wouldn't you give a refund if someone decided not to preorder? I'm sure it a little but of money to process refunds, but I'm also sure they're making a little bit of money by taking money for games which might not be out for a year. Don't preorder anything unless you're sure you want it, I guess.

A friend of mine pre-ordered EA Sports UFC on the PS4 store and later decided he wanted a retail copy instead. He had to contact their support centre, and they eventually emailed him and agreed to refund his money as a "one-time demonstration of good will" or something equally robolawyer-sounding. He got what he wanted but ultimately wasn't real impressed with Sony by the end of it.
There's a Only On Playstation sale tomorrow - but either there's a lot fewer games only on Playstation or there's only a few (and some of which were previously free for PS+ users.) If you're on PS+ and wanted to wait for All-Star Battle Royal to be down to $5 before you bought it, you're in luck.
Mutant Mudds (PS Vita), a "12 Bit" platformer is the PS+ add.
Note this is only up for a week. This is the last week of the old system for PS+ free games - everything up there now is gone on 07/01, and the entire July library will be up on that day. (That also means far less of these posts.)
This week's PSN update includes the PS4 version of RBI Baseball (which is also out for X1). There's a game based on the Transformers movie, which sounds like a bad combination. FIFA World Cup, out not a month, has already been cut down $10, but $50 is still too high.
PS4 version update 1.72 came out last night. I know this only because I tried to play WatchDogs without installing it, and it froze every two seconds until I did. That was highly annoying. Normal stability update.
* TowerFall Ascension (PS4) - the definitive version of the hit archery combat game. * Strider (PS4) - incredible side-scrolling action, and lightning fast combat all in a massive interconnected world * Dead Space 3 (PS3) - you may have heard of this * Vessel (PS3) - puzzle game? * Muramasa Rebirth (PS Vita) - an action RPG * Doki-Doki Universe (PS Vita) - Embark on a journey with QT3 to discover humanity
I don't think so, because it won't be long before people realize that it is not actual violence that causes the visual improvement, but rather playing this kind of first-person-"shooter" type engine that does it. (I'm assuming, of course.)
