A rumor has surfaced this week hinting that a new Spider-Man PS4 Pro bundle is possible. The rumor was based on the promotional image that has leaked online. The Spider-Man is this year’s most anticipated game. The popular game will be developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

 

Rumor hints of Spider-Man PS4 Pro

 

Spider-Man PS4 Pro’s leaked promotional was first spotted on Reddit. A quick check of the promotional image revealed a classy red PS4 Pro that has a character’s iconic logo. However, the leaked promotional image did not give a specific detail about the hard-disk drive for PS4. Avid players claim that Sony would likely to offer a terabyte of data.

 

In case you don’t know, this is not the first time that Sony offered a tera byte of data. Previous leaked high-profile bundle suggests so, as such as in the case of God of War bundle before Sony’s announcement. Another speculation was floating online hints that the Spider-Man PS4 Pro would be a limited edition.

 

 

All these details have yet to be confirmed by Sony. Thus, players should take this with a grain of salt for the time being. And to note, the release of Spider Man is near while Insomniac Games has been really slow in disclosing details about the most anticipated action game of the year.

 

 

Details of the Spider Man is expected to be revealed at at Sony’s E3 2018 press conference in June.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Will Feature Retro-Style Mini Games

The game’s new development was unveiled in a new trailer released by the game studio. A quick random view of the trailer shoes the character of Sora using a device to play four several games. These games are the Barnyard Battle, the Karnival Kid, Giantland, and Musical Farmer, respectively.

In case you don’t know, the game’s mini-games feature is likened to the classic Nintendo Game and Watch titles. This is because of the mini-games’ old school aesthetics.

 

However, fans of the game should wait for the announcement as to how they would access these mini-games. To date, there are four games that Square Enix announced so far. These four mini-games, according to the game studio, could be played in the mobile RPG spin off called the Kingdom Hearts Union X.

 

Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts III is slated to be released later this year on Xbox One and PS4 consoles.

Sony’s ‘God of War’ Is Exclusive on PS4, Will Be Out in 2018

Sony’s historic franchise, God of War was unveiled to the public back in 2016 during Sony’s E3 event. Now the God of War would bring the Kratos characters to a brand new setting. This would include other characters that players are excited to play in PS4.

Both of them are journeying in a woodland location before they encountered a huge beast. Luckily, both of the defeated the huge beast, but Atreus accidentally placed an arrow on Kratos’ shoulder.

 

 

For sure, fans of the God of War are excited about the release of the game this year. What we know so far is that Sony Interactive Entertainment as the publisher of the game hinted of the April 20 release date. This was also confirmed by the game’s developer, Sony Santa Monica, the game studio that developed God of War 1 to 3.

 

 

If such information is true, God of War is expected to come in as exclusive for Sony’s PlayStation 4 only. Regarding the game’s price, we don’t have any available information yet. What is clear, however, is that the game will be sold for full price.

 

Watch the game’s trailer below:

 

 

Meanwhile, you might as well check the God of War review by USgamer and Eurogamer, respectively.

 

 

“This is how you do a reboot. After Kratos lost his way, Sony Santa Monica has set the God of War on a new path. A more measured, nuanced character, a great supporting cast, an excellent combat system, and some of the best graphics in a PlayStation 4 game to-date, add up to a winner,” according to USgamer. The gaming website gave a review score of 5/5

 

 

Eurogamer said: “God of War dresses things up, in other words, but it is ultimately the same deal it always was. As is the way with myths, I guess. As is the way with gods.”

Now, if you want to shell out extra cash, the game’s Collector’s edition would be sold for $150. However, the Collector’s Edition would be sold in limited quantity. But it offers the same DLC content. What makes this interesting is that it comes with a steelbook case, a Spider-Man statue and a mini artbook.

 

“Pay extra special attention to the statue though, and you’ll notice something is obviously missing. We haven’t revealed the entire statue for the Collector’s edition, just Spider-Man perched on top of something. What could that be? It’s too spoilery to show you now, but stay tuned!,” Insomniac Games said as published in PlayStation Blog.

 

 

Players in both US and Canada who pre-ordered the game’s Digital Deluxe edition would receive a limited edition of collectable pin by mail. The pin shows Spider-Man in the same pose as on the box art.

PS5 Release Date: Sony’s New Console To Edge Out Nintendo and Xbox?

The company is expected to launch new games this year for its PS4 and PS4 Pro in 2018. While the Sony’s gaming consoles are selling well, other console brands are also competing well in the console market.

 

It can be recalled that back in 2013, Sony launched both the PS4 and Xbox One. This means that a new gaming console is likely possible. Sources claim that PS5 is expected to be released in 2020 while other reports hinted that Sony would announced the new console’s release date sooner.

 

Will Sony release PS5?

 

 

In fact, a recent report noted that the Sony has already released the PlayStation 5 developer’s kit to third-party developers. If this report is true then fans should expect an announcement from Sony the soonest.

 

Also, the reported release of the PlayStation devkits could be viewed as a positive confirmation of the planned PS5. Another indication of the planned PS5 is that both Nintendo and software giant Microsoft are looking forward to perform best in the console market. Thus, Sony is on the verge of expanding the success it has for PS4.

 

Meanwhile, Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription service might be getting an upgraded service. The company wants to provide AAA games to their avid fans.

 

This information surfaced in the late 2017 during the Sony Corporate Strategy Meeting. In the said meeting, Sony discussed the company’s future directions and other plans including the upgrade of the PS Plus service.
