Over 60M PS4 Consoles and 487M Games Sold — Sony

There were reports recently that Sony might reveal details about a new Spider-Man game and the company went through with it at its E3 2017 press conference in Los Angeles.

However, this also raises concerns over the importance of Electronic Entertainment Expo in the gaming industry as more and more publishers and devs are moving away from it.

PlayStation 4 software has already sold 487.8 million units across physical and digital channels, along with 26.4 million paid subscribers for the PlayStation Plus service - both figures were accurate as of the end of March 2017.

God of War takes its subject directly from the Norse mythology while developing it a little bit to suit the actions of the game. Although this game was remastered for Sony's Playstation 3 back in 2011, this time it will be a full HD version.

This is because the firm is saving such announcements for later in the year (thanks, Push Square).

PlayStation has had success in keeping the focus on gamers and what they like. For anyone who has ever spent hours just fishing away and blowing off actual quests, you can easily understand why the game might have inspired a fishing PlayStation VR spinoff.

Yoshida explained that the game isn't a typical remaster, as we've come to expect from Sony with games like The Last of Us Remastered and The Uncharted Collection.

This game is a classic for the PlayStation 2 originally launched in 2005. But one of the bigger announcements from the weekend was the mention of Cross-Play between platforms.

The $499 product was built with the muscle for seamless play on ultra-high definition 4K televisions and will be available worldwide on November 7, according to Xbox team leader Phil Spencer. There are very few answers about what the game actually entails but it's a sci-fi sidescroller developed by Playful. There is more polish to the game now though there is no solid release date for it.

The move is in stark contrast to Microsoft's unveiling of its new Xbox One X console, during which mention of virtual reality games were glaringly absent.
