God of War Launches in April on PS4

Cory Barlog, the creative director at Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Santa Monica Studio, announced on the PlayStation Blog that God of War will launch on the PS4 on April 20, 2018. You can pre-order God of War right now.

It’s a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man, outside the shadow of the gods, he seeks solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology. With new purpose and his son at his side, Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he has created…

You can pre-order the Collector’s Edition, the Digital Deluxe Edition, and the Stone Mason Edition now. Those who preorder any edition at a supporting retailer will acquire three legendary shield skins for Kratos to use to bash and defend against all manner of creatures. Players will need internet connectivity to access the shield skins.

If you pre-order any edition of God of War at GameStop or EB Games, you will also receive the Luck of Ages XP Tailsman, which improves the wearer’s luck. It increases XP gain, increases Hacksilver gain, and increases the ability to trigger perks.

The God of War Digital Deluxe Edition is $69.99 USD / $89.99 CAD. Digital contents include: Death’s Vow Armor Set, Exile’s Guardian Shield Set, God of War Comic #0 by Dark Horse Comics, God of War Mini Artbook by Dark Horse Comics, and Dynamic Theme. Those who pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition in the US and Canada receive an exclusive, limited-run God of War physical pin.

The God of War Collector’s Edition is $129.99 USD / $169.99 CAD. It comes with a 9” statue of Kratos and Atreus by Gentle Giant, a limited edition steelbook case, 2” Huldra Brothers Carvings, an exclusive Lithograph, a cloth map, and the full God of War game. It also includes everything in the Digital Deluxe Edition.

The God of War Stone Mason Edition is $149.99 USD / $199.99 CAD (EB Games Exclusive in Canada). It includes everything in the Collector’s Edition – plus four very distinct, rare items from the game. These include the Stone Mason Ring and the talking Mimir Head keychain.

4 Reasons to Buy a Sony PlayStation 4

PlayStation logoSony released some extremely interesting news at E3 2013! Those of you who have been trying to decide between the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Microsoft Xbox One now have all the information you need to make this a super easy decision. Personally, I believe that the Sony PlayStation 4 is the winner in this situation. Here’s why:

Price: Sony PlayStation 4 will be released with a “holiday price” of $399.99. That’s $100.00 less than what the Microsoft Xbox One will be selling for.

Privacy: Sony PlayStation 4 doesn’t come with Kinect (or anything even remotely resembling it). I find the level of detail that Microsoft Xbox One can identify with Kinect to be creepy.

Internet Connection: Sony PlayStation 4 does not require you to check-in online in order to play a disc-based game. The console doesn’t require you to have it constantly connected to the internet.

The Microsoft Xbox One will require you to check-in online. If you don’t check in and authenticate in more than 24 hours the Microsoft Xbox One will stop working. This means you have to keep the console constantly connected to the internet, even if you are playing a disc-based game by yourself.

Used Games: Microsoft has allowed publishers to block access to used copies of games on the Microsoft Xbox One. This means that gamers cannot save a few dollars by purchasing a copy of a used game from a store. They would have no other option than to buy a new copy for full price. It also means that gamers cannot choose to share one of the games that they purchased with a friend.

Sony PlayStation 4, on the other hand, won’t place those restrictions on used copies of games. If you buy a disc-based game for the PS4, it is yours. You keep the rights to that copy of the game (and can give it to one of your friends if you want to). Your friend will be able to play the used copy of that game on his or her PS4. Here’s how:
