This Week in PlayStation: Welcome to Chicago

Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft’s ambitious open-world cyber-thriller, is out now! Who’s spending this weekend wandering around Chicago?

I’m still trapped in the wilds of Eorzea — I just hit level 40 on my Black Mage! — but I made sure to set some time aside for Aiden’s privacy-invading exploits.

Can you feel that? The tangible anticipation of the collective gaming community? E3 is just around the corner, and we’re bringing our press conference to you in theaters nationwide. Of course, we’ll have tons more up-to-the-minute news debuting right here on PS.Blog, so keep your browser open!

A few more highlights from this week: Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is coming to PS3 and PS4 (1080p 60FPS on the latter), we debuted a handful of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX screens, Battlefield 4 got a 20-hour free trial for PS Plus members this week, Capcom showed us how they’re using fan feedback to balance Ultra Street Fighter IV, and we got a first look at new titles Aaru’s Awakening and Blue Estate.

Just over a week until E3, but until then… what are you playing?

  • I’m playing: Watch_Dogs, Final Fantasy XIV
  • I’m watching: Bob’s Burgers
  • I’m listening to: Transistor soundtrack

  • Just over a week until E3, but until then… what are you playing?

    I’m playing: Child Of Light, Final Fantasy XIV
    I’m watching: Camelot
    I’m listening to: Kid Ink, MJ’s New album

  • Still waiting for my copy of Watch_Dogs from UPlay Store… *sigh*

  • Im playing: Uncharted 4, Project Beast
    Im watching: Star Wars Episode VII, The Avengers; Age of Ultron
    Im Listening to: The new Tool album

  • If this week seemed really good when it came to Playstation news, I can’t imagine how much E3 week will be!

  • I’m playing Mario Kart 8 on Wii U (Really great game, especially the graphics, may not be PS4 great, but really great for Wii U)

    Also any news on Ratchet and Clank Trilogy for Vita, Europe announced it, I’m sure the US will get it too, hopefully around the same time.

  • I wish Watchdogs Hard/Realistic mode didn’t have radar & auto target for hackable objects in the Campaign. It’s too easy – feels like a mobile game just clicking on icons instead of a console game with gameplay depth.

    I’m playing: WD & BF4
    I’m watching: Dual Survivor Discovery channel
    I’m listening to: 106.5 FM Sac., CA

  • I would be playing Watchdogs if I hadn’t had got loading bug after first day….
    Borderlands 2 it is!

  • Already owned Limbo, and most of what was offered last month.
    Can’t even prepare for a PS4, since without a computer I can not put it in my downloads.

    Upcoming month is not horrible, though I do not like many sports games especially basketball (NBA jams and Hockey on Sega Genisis were enough).

    Not excited, but not overly disappointed.

    Really wish there was more emphasis from past owners for digital compatibility.
    I spent the last couple years buyng and adding digital and IGC in preparation for the PS4, and thought about buying one on release for my oldest boys.
    If my mother had not bought one for them, I do not think I would have.

    I even bought a couple seasons of clone wars and would have continued except I had downloaded quite a few to Vita and when memory card issues took place am beig told I can not redownload them.

    I enjoy your hardware and do not mind paying for it, no matter how many times family has ran off with it or it has been replaced.
    But, you really need to work out the kinks with PSN.

  • @3, How are you playing Uncharted 4, Project Beast? @_@

  • @ Rezolution77, Stop Whining about getting FREE GAMES You crybaby

  • @8, Guess what? many peoples do like basketball such as NBA 2K series so deal with it

  • Since there is a 1250 character limit.

    I am playing Borerlands 2 – Vita.
    (Never played it on PS3, and although there are issues, I really enjoy games with character developement with noticeable changes in gameplay and changes in enviorrment to appoach them differently)
    And Star Wars Force Unleashed 2 – hard, when my kids are not playing Minecraft.

    The Rayman sale was nice, since I have missed them before.
    Had to pick up Rayman 2(psone), and Rayman 3 HD.

    But useless, if I buy a PS4.

  • So @10……..that was whining?

    Pease tell me you will never have kids, or at least will find a real grown up to raise them.

    Your not even a Plus subscriber, so …………

  • @ Rezolution77: Not that you’ll see this, but now you “can” actually re-download videos purchased on PSN. Used to be that you could not, but they updated it sometime last year. The cool thing is, I can even stream videos I purchased on PS3 on my PS4 using Video Unlimited. The streaming quality sometimes goes all wonky, but hey, no need to take up another 30GB of HDD space for all the episodes.

    I’m playing: Watch_Dogs, Warframe, Killzone: Shadow Fall
    I’m watching: Archer Vice
    I’m listening to: The sounds of the cars in Watch_Dogs, as the songs got old real fast.

  • @ davidxraw, I wish there was a flash sale on dlc. Games are great but DLC makes them last longer. I kinda want to pick up the rest of the Mass Effect DLC and Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning without spending a ton of cash.

    I’m playing: Dark Souls 2, SSX, Witch and the Hundred Knight, FFX HD on Vita, Spelunky
    i’m watching; Archer, Futurama, and that 70’s show on Netflix, Definance, Boardwalk Empire, and the Wire on Amazon Prime

  • @40 Thats what I thought too, it is why I began buying them.

    However, something changed again.

    I can not download them through Vita, or PS3.
    They will not even show on Vita, and PS3 will simply do nothing.

    Customer Service said We’re sorry, nothing we can do and had NO IDEA about the change.

    Horrible Service, something needs changed BAD.

  • I know this much.

    I will NOT switch to a PS4 untill certain changes are made, or buy another movie.

    These may be my last days with Sony…….ever.

  • watchdogs is sadly a huge upset, way to easy even on hardest difficulty… flying threw side missions no problem all it is pretty much is time consuming to go all across the map collecting things, no challenge wat so ever, maybe for a 6 year old following straight lines might be hard but im very disappointed in it. I hope to god destiny isnt as bad as this, or for that matter h1z1 and dying light

  • Ubisoft has issued a temporary fix for Watch Dogs “90% Loading Bug”. This bug is a nasty one and results in gamers being unable to continue playing the game. It occurs when players download or claim any item via Uplay Store.

    Here is what the temporary solution from Ubisoft reads. The publisher has promised to fix this issue permanently via patch which is currently in development at Ubisoft Montreal.

    I’m waiting for: The Last of Us Remastered

    I’m really hoping for an announcement at E3 where they will be like “SURPRISE it’s going to be released Friday (or the week after)”. Please don’t announce it for August.


  • hey Rezolution77 have you tried using the video now app on one of your kids ps4’s after logging into it to see if the purchased video content shows up because the ps4 only streams purchased/rented video content instead of downloading a drm video file for local use that is only accessible to the system it was on as long as video content is authorized for use on the system.

    playing watch dogs(ps4), transistor (ps4), skyrim (ps3), mugan souls (ps3), no heros allowed no puzzles either (vita), drakes fortune (vita)

  • Worst interpretation of Chicago EVER!!!!

    Really a mountain in the northwest corner with a hydroelectric dam?!?!

    This must be how it is for those that live anywhere and see some show or film shot in Canada which is supposed to be in the US…

    This is the worst Chicago simulation by anybody ever!!!
