That’s not all that’s new this week for PS4. Sony also revealed the first playable teaser (PT) on PlayStation for Hideo Kojima, and Guillermo del Toro’s new scaretastic Silent Hills game. Prior to the event it was also announced that Journey and The Unfinished Swan, two standout indies titles on PS3 will be getting ported to PS4. Another pair of titles to be ported over from PC were also announced this week, the macabre interactive horror The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is incoming as is White Paper Games’ though provoking first person exploration game Ether One.
Beyond all this, It’s been reported that Sony didn’t have enough room for all their new announcements and that at least one more big game reveal is to be expected at this year's Tokyo Game Show (set to kick off on 18th September) although unfortunately The Last Guardian is unlikely to be the game in question.
