With December quickly approaching and the second annual PlayStation Experience arriving in just a few days, it’s time we start speculating what’s just around the corner.
I’ve been knee deep in Xbox One exclusives this year. Be it Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Forza 6, Halo 5: Guardians or Rise of the Tomb Raider, I’ve had a lot to play on my Xbox. The PS4 had some great exclusives this year as well, with Until Dawn being the biggest surprise hit of the year for me by far, but I’ve spent a lot more time on my Xbox One this year than my PS4.
I hope 2016 reverses that, solely for the sake of variety, not because I prefer one console over the other.
Sony has slowly but surely been revealing a stellar lineup of games for the PS4 over the course of this year. We finally got our first look at Horizon: Zero Dawn at E3 this year, we’ve seen some snippets of Uncharted 4, the re-make of Ratchet and Clank, and Dreams and Quantic Dream recently announced their next project as Detroit: Become Human.
Since we’ve already seen Horizon, Uncharted and Ratchet in action, I’m really hoping for our first look at Detroit at PSX. More importantly though, I’m excited to see what Sony may have up their sleeves for the show. Most notably, Sony Bend’s unannounced PS4 title has me intrigued. Rumors circulating around the game bill it as an Unreal Engine 4 open world survival horror game and I dearly hope those details are true.
I’m also interested to see PlayStation VR games like Robinson: The Journey in action. If you haven’t seen the game’s initial reveal trailer you should definitely check it out just below. That game is one of the sole reasons I’m incredibly intrigued by VR devices, and we have yet to even see it in action.
Sony’s quite a bit more secretive about their exclusive line-up than Microsoft is, so while I’m excited for everything I listed above, I’m even more excited to see what surprises Sony has in store for us, particularly things that haven’t even been mentioned or rumored as of yet. We may not get any mindblowing announcements at PSX since those types of announcements are usually saved for E3, but you never know.
So PlayStation owners. What are you hoping to see out of PSX, realistically? I know one of you is going to say something about Agent, but you know that’s unlikely to happen, right?
