Sony on Destiny PS4: PlayStation 4's Biggest Software Launch Yet

50°
2w ago - Sony Developer and Publisher Relations Vice President Adam Boyes revealed today that Destiny PS4 is PlayStation 4's biggest software launch yet!

To quote: What a week! Since [Register or Login to view links] launched one week ago, it has officially become the biggest PS4 game launch in North America ever.

The game broke records for being the fastest purchased and most played PS4 game during its first week on sale. In fact, last week was our single biggest PS4 hardware sales week since Christmas 2013! That's a lot of PS4s. Thanks, Guardians!

Destiny also racked up some impressive gameplay stats, with PS4 players across North America collectively accumulating more than 11 million gameplay sessions - that's a lot of Guardians! Destiny players have also made full use of PS4's social features; it was the most shared and most broadcasted PS4 game during its first week on sale.

From everyone at PlayStation, we want to say thank you to the fans - none of this would be possible without you! If you're like me you have been up until the wee hours of the morning playing 'just one more match' with your Fireteam (I'm still trying to get to 26 with my Warlock to prep for Vault of Glass!).

To quote: Hi PlayStation Readers, this is Viktor Kalvachev from HeSaw. Today is D-Day, we're releasing our Blue Estate baby on PlayStation Store and we're really, really excited about the launch so we wanted to share with you the launch trailer for the game:

For those who missed the latest video, here's an overview of Blue Estate.

Blue Estate is a darkly funny rail shooter based on comic books of the same name. Designed from the ground up to exploit the accuracy and precision of DualShock 4′s gyroscopic features, the game offers slick wit and punishing violence via a genuinely fun and intuitive control system, all set in an eye-popping technicolor mob world.

In Blue Estate, you play Tony Luciano, the homicidal maniac son of LA's crime boss Don Luciano, and Clarence, a broke ex-navy seal who has been hired to clean up Tony's mess. While Tony wages war with the Sik gang in an attempt to get back his kidnapped "Helen of Troy," Clarence has to try to end that war against increasing odds.

We have poured an incredible amount of power and innovation into PS4 to bring you the most immersive, jaw-dropping gaming and entertainment experiences imaginable. Now you get to see for yourself why PlayStation is the best place to play.

This past week we celebrated the launch of PS4 with bi-coastal events taking place in New York City and San Francisco.

With media reviews saying that the PS4 is "just shy of perfection" and that it is "an impressive package for gamers," it's clear that PS4′s horsepower, deep social capabilities, network features, and amazing gameplay have struck a chord.

A possible fix for this issue is to do the following:

1. Hold Home Button
2. Adjust Devices
3. Output to headphones -> All Audio

DualShock 4 R1 Button Sticking

There are several reports that units of the DualShock 4 appear to sport defective R1 buttons. After just a few hours of play, the R1 button seems to stick.
