The latest trailer for the highly anticipated multiplatform game Watch Dogs from Ubisoft has been released at Sony’s gamescom 2013 Press Conference, and along with this trailer came a few huge announcements.  Sony has promised that there will be an exclusive skin, a hacking boost, and four exclusive missions totaling 60 additional minutes of gameplay on the Playstation versions of the game.  If you were like me and hadn’t known yet which version of the game to pick up, the PS4 version will likely be your best bet.

Sony has promised that anyone who picks up the PS3 version of Watch Dogs will be able to upgrade to the PS4 version of the game through Sony’s Digital PS4 Marketplace at a heavily discounted rate for a limited time.

Watch Dogs is coming multiplatform November, 2013 and will launch on the Xbox One and PS4.

inFAMOUS: Second Son, the third entry in the Playstation exclusive series, is coming next year and Sucker Punch previewed the latest trailer for the game at the Sony gamescom 2013 Press Conference.  From the looks of it, the game’s new hero will have more than just the power to control smoke, as a new character may be able to provide him with a power we are already quite familiar with.

inFAMOUS: Second Son will be coming out exclusive to the PS4 in Q1 2014.

Playstation Vita Price Drop August 20, 2013

The sales that have been taking place in many retailers this week will be permanent.  Over two years after I originally previewed the system at E3 2011, Sony has officially announced at Gamescom 2013 that they are slashing the price of the Playstation Vita in North America to $199US.  That slash includes all model Vita systems currently at retail, 3G or WiFi-only, and systems that may be bundled with games like The Walking Dead which released not too long ago.

Not content to do just that, Sony has also slashed the price of the Vita’s proprietary memory cards.  Many people did not like the fact that the Vita used a proprietary memory card to save data instead of a more common memory type like SD or SDHC, and complained that these cards were extremely overpriced in comparison to those more common formats.  Now, while the Vita will still be using the same proprietary memory, that memory will be a lot more affordable.  While memory on the lower end will only be cut by a few dollars, the price of higher capacity Vita memory cards will be cut by as much as $20 US.

You can read all the details about the price drop, and the new memory prices here.
