This Week in PlayStation: Rock on, Morpheus

This week was awesome.

Helldivers is out now (over a million kills already!) and word on the street is it’s pretty darn good! OlliOlli2 is also out now (for free if you’re a PS Plus member), and I CAN’T. STOP. PLAYING. It’s so good, you guys.

We revealed the new prototype of Project Morpheus at GDC. It’s got a slick OLED screen, a 120hz refresh rate, and a bundle of ergonomic improvements to make sure it’s extra-comfy while strapped to your noggin. Oh, and it’s coming out in the first half of 2016! Look for full impressions on PS.Blog soon (though it’s not hard to find stories about it all over the ‘net). For now, I will say that the updated version of “The Deep” genuinely, legitimately terrified me.

Final Fantasy XIV’s Heavensward expansion comes out June 23rd! Ryan and I took our questions (and yours!) to Naoki Yoshida, the Producer and Director of FFXIV, himself — read the full story here.

Oh yeah, and ROCK BAND 4 is a thing! It’s happening! This year! And since we’re talking Harmonix, we debuted the first gameplay trailer for Amplitude. I’ve needed more Harmonix in my life.

A few more highlights: Wolfenstein: The New Order is getting a standalone prequel in The Old Blood — yep, I’m in. Heart Forth, Alicia looks beautiful, and by popular demand, HBO GO is now available on PS4.

    Playing: Dragonba Xenoverse (PS3), Jak Trilogy and Hyperdevotion Noire (Vita)
    Watching: Kamen Rider Drive

    Will there ever be a week following us getting the Vita themes Japan has, I wonder?

  • Helldivers sure did release this week….with a bunch of problems. After a long delay.
    The plus announcements came an hour AFTER they went live on the store. The blog team didnt even bother to acknowledge it.
    But other than that crap, good job.

  • I’m playing: Dragon Ball: Xenoverse (PS4)
    I’m watching: Sword Art Online II (just started)
    I’m listening to: Bad early 90s hip hop featuring horror movie stars. Want some hilarity? Look up “The Crypt Jam” on Youtube

  • New expansion for FFXIV looks hype as heck.

    I’m playing: OlliOlli2, CounterSpy, Destiny, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
    I’m watching: The Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Ross
    I’m listening to: Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Tyler the Creator

  • Playing: Diablo III RoS ($30 at BestBuy) & Toukiden

    I’m watching: Walking Dead S5, Bates Motel (Monday!), Modern Family
    I’m listening to: Lupe Fiasco

    I’m not playing: DriveClub + edition, but seriously, even though I already bought it, it would be nice if SONY would compensate people with a different racer and just scrap all hopes of a DriveClub + edition.

  • I have very fond memories of playing Rock Band with mom. She passed away recently so I’m not sure if I’ll get RB4 or not but I am very happy they are making another one. Project Morpheus looks to be shaping up really good…I think it’ll be a pretty cool addition to the PlayStation family.

    I’m still playing Dragon Age Inquisition.
    I’m watching Heartland tonight.
    I’m listening to War Eternal by Arch Enemy.

  • I’m Playing: Spider-Man: Edge of Time (PS3)
    I’m Watching: Cardcaptor Sakura

  • No pro-modes will be depressing. My 128 key guitar that I got off Amazon for like 26 dollars was gonna come out.

    Rock Band doesn’t get much play because of a variety of reasons. Multiple PS3s is one of those reasons, slow down on the PS3 is another reason… Upstairs apartment living hurts the drums… Hard drive being filled up on PS3 is also an issue… Where as on the PS4 I have a 2TB HDD installed. 800 GB left. XD

    Not as depressing as the Xbox Players who just now realized how awesome Sony consoles are after having bought all their DLC on the Xbox 360! XD

    At least it’s still cheaper to rebuy all those songs than it will be to get an Xbox One.

  • Don’t you mean broken as Hell…divers?

    Also don’t have any idea how fun effing Olli2 is cause you’re already ditching ps3 support.

    Yay Project try to get consumers to be interested in a peripheral that you strap over the top of your head, makes you antisocial, is likely to be expensive, and have terrible support all the way up until you ditch it completely leaving early adopters super pissed… again. Did I menton it can make you puke? Yeah that’s a real winner you got there Sonies.

    This long march to Sony’s inevitable self destruction is becoming hard to watch. At least RB4 is good news, but that’s not really on you, is it? Harmonix: The company Sony wishes it had the ethics of.

  • I’m playing: OlliOlli2, Helldivers, Dragonball Xenoverse, Hotline Miami
    I’m watching: Digimon fusion
    I’m listening to All that remains, Oceans ate Alaska, Feed Her to the Sharks

  • Is that a typo? Supposed to be *March’s* lineup?
