Still saving up for a PS4? If you said yes, well, hurry up because a fresh batch of triple-A titles are headed gamers' way this May and June.
Since its launch in November 2013, the next-gen system has been slowly amassing a library worthy of all the remaining free time you have this summer. Likewise, the system has been undergoing system updates that improve the PS4 experience.
Just recently, System Software Update v 1.7 was announced, which expands the system's broadcast features. With 1.7, the PS4 gains support for the Japanese video sharing website "Niconico Live," HD streaming via Twtich and video archiving on various online streaming platforms like Ustream. The Playstation SHAREfactory also debuts with the update, which allows gamers to add comments, stickers to video clips saved on PS4 and change music and background of game videos. Lastly, the update enables Remote Play for the PS4 via PS Vita TV, which allows gamers to stream PS4 games on a television placed in a different location.
Now, all that is fine and dandy, but as any gamer would attest to, it's the games that matter, above all. So here are eight that's coming to a Playstation system near you, really, really soon.
