All the important PlayStation news you missed in a TLDR format every Tuesday and Friday mornings at 7am EST.
Golden Week sale is back on the PSN. You can save up to 65% (75% if you are a PS Plus subscriber) on quite a few games including Resident Evil 2, Jump Force and Kingdom Hearts III. What will you be picking up on this sale?
Any Retro City Rampage fans out there? Well, we finally have a release date for the follow-up, Shakedown: Hawaii and the wait will not be that long. May 7 is just around the corner and you will be able to play on your PS4 or on the go with your PS Vita.
Atlus revealed Persona 5: The Royal earlier in the week but few details were known about this teaser. Fear not, we now know what to expect when the game releases in October in Japan and next year in the US. The new content for the game includes a new character, new locations, an expanded story (it continues after the original end of the game), new enemies, new music and a variety of quality of life changes. No details are known if existing owners will get a discount of any kind when the game releases.
Have you wanted to play Street Fighter V but not shell out the cash? Now is your opportunity as the game is free to play until May 5. Most of the game will be unlocked but the DLC characters you can try will be locked to certain modes.
Earlier in the week, we mentioned CMON Games was launching their kickstarter for Bloodborne: The Board Game. Within 17 minutes of the kickstarter beginning, the funding goal was met. And then it was shattered…several times over. The kickstarter has raised over $1 million in just 24 hours. There are still a few stretch goals out there but with 18 days remaining, it would be a surprise if they are not reached. If you are interested in joining this, head on over to kickstarter.com and helped them reach their next stretch goal.
Days Gone is out today but Sony Bend has already outlined post-launch plans. These plans are scheduled to be available into June at the least and they include a new difficulty mode as well as game challenges that also come with their own trophies. Are you picking up Days Gone Day 1? Let us know what you think and look out for our spoilercast in the coming weeks.
If any of these stories interest you and you want to know more, let us know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), twitter (ng_platinum) or telephone (929-333-5762) and we will talk about it on the next show. Anything submitted before 9pm EST on Tuesday will make it on that week’s episode.
