Sci-fi epics and 'Mortal Kombat' madness: Sony's E3 keynote in three minutes

New, 6 comments

Sony's E3 2014 keynote started out promising the stars. The company devoted plenty of time early on to Bungie's upcoming sci-fi epic Destiny, revealing that the PS4 version of the game would ship with exclusive content and that the game's multiplayer beta would be available to PlayStation gamers on July 17th. We also got a better look at the crazy sci-fi exploration game No Man's Sky, saw an early glimpse of the next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V, and checked out some brand-new games, including the brutal medieval RPG Bloodborne and Abzu, an underwater adventure from some of the minds behind the acclaimed Journey. There was also an incredibly violent trailer for the newly announced Mortal Kombat X. It's not for the squeamish.

One of the key talking points of the night was that regardless of what other platforms they may be on, games are just better on PlayStation. To that end, the company announced plenty of exclusive content for big-name games — Far Cry 4, for instance, will let you play multiplayer with your friends even if they don't own the game. Outside of games, Sony also revealed that the Vita TV — now known as PlayStation TV — will be coming to North America later this year, and we finally got some details on pricing for the PlayStation Now streaming service. It was a lengthy presentation, but you can check out the most important moments condensed to just three and a half minutes in the video below.
