The Android-based Ouya console doesn't have many great games, but there is at least one standout: Towerfall, a Smash Bros.-style four-player combat game with an emphasis on archery. Now that game is coming to the PlayStation 4. Next year Towerfall's six-month exclusivity with Ouya will expire, and while we knew the game would be making its way to the PC, developer Matt Thorson has revealed that it will be hitting the PS4 at the same time as well. For those who bought the game on Ouya — the game sold just 5,000 copies on the platform — all of the new content will be available as a free update three months after Ascension launches.
Sony's PlayStation 4 is now in stores, ushering in a new era of high-definition video games. Perhaps you've already read the largely enthusiastic reviews, pored over the tech specs and watched the eye-catching online videos. And you've decided to fork over $400 and invite the new machine into your home.
The next-generation has finally arrived. You’ve waited for months, read all the coverage, watched the unboxing videos, fought with fanboys in the comment sections of your favorite websites — all for this moment. The PlayStation 4 launched at midnight with what Sony claims to be a record number of preorders, kicking off a video game console holiday showdown with the Xbox One. The PS4 is Sony’s chance to fix everything it did wrong last generation, and start this one on a positive note. Developers complained that the PS3 was difficult to develop for, so Sony made ease of use a priority on the PS4. The DualShock 3 was maligned by gamers, so Sony reworked the controller from the ground up.
