Playstation PLAY 2014 Revealed

By Shadow Enz,
Playstation PLAY is an annual summertime event that revolves around the pre-release of exciting summer blockbuster titles on Playstation, giving gamers an opportunity to pre-order some brand new titles and offer an opportunity to get something back in return.

This year's Playstation PLAY has some really exciting games in store, and this is the first year to include a fully cross-buy lineup of titles.


So for one price, you get the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita versions of these titles, as well as some money back based on how many you get, if you get two or more. On top of all of this, Playstation Plus members get an added 20% back to their pre-orders, saving even more on these brand new releases.

You can pre-order these games right now. Here is the list for details on their release and prices:

An enigmatic figure, whose biography is narrated by the same voice as most North America movie trailers, Shadow walks a dangerous line in the life of a man who does not exist...

Actually, he's a mild-mannered New Yorker who lives and breathes gaming. He also loves long walks on the beach...

While his biographical strategy may be questionable, this genuine and sincere gamer enjoys all the flavors of life, including all aspects of gaming. Being heavily invested in video games since the dawn of gaming, he usually prefers to experience gaming across multiple platforms through multiple perspectives, but will always feel best at home in an Arcade environment.

Here on TrueTrophies, he's usually writing about important PlayStation announcements and tries to keep up with the daunting abyss of lists in the PlayStation store weekly updates. He usually gets the chance to spread the word about sales that occur on the PlayStation Network, and takes pride in getting out the word of the latest Flash Sales when they occur. However, he's eternally grateful to the entire Newshound family for all their hard work and diligent writing, for he feels that they contribute the most to the site's news.

Under the strong and lovely guidance of Rebecca Smith (aka Punkyliar), he's making himself a home in the Newshound lounge.

He's also the Site Social Manager, Forum Manager, a Moderator and Janitor. If you hear him grumbling down the hall, you'll hear echoes of, "Someone's gotta do the dirty work *grumble grumble*..."

He loves conversation, so if you have anything to say to him, his inbox is always open for comment, criticism, conversation, or even a bit of trolling.
