The next announcement regarding Destiny was a hardware bundle, featuring a glacier white PS4 along with a white DualShock 4, a copy of Destiny and a 30 day PS Plus subscription. 

Next up was the short, but sweet looking active cinematic demo of the much awaited PS4 exclusive, The Order 1886. In the demo, Sir Galahad whom you play as, comes into contact with a werewolf and a battle ensues. 

Immediately after the Order 1886 demo, Sony announced a brand new game called Entwined for the PS4. And here comes the best part, it’s already available for purchase from PlayStation Store for $9.99. A PS3 and Vita version will follow soon with cross-buy.

Fans of Little Big Planet can rejoice as Little Big Planet 3 has been announced for the PS3 and will be out this holiday season.

Each of the three characters have unique abilities to assist each other. 

The President of SCE World Wide Studios Shuhei Yoshida came on stage to announce a brand new PS4 exclusive title for 2015 called Blood Borne, developed by From Software whose previous works include Demon Souls and the Dark Souls games.

The creative director of Far Cry 4, Alex Hutchinson, presented a live demo of the game. Grappling hook, rideable autorickshaw, wingsuit gliding, seamless cooperative all was part of the beautifully rendered vistas as the enemy fortress was liberated towards the end. 

Next on stage was Adam Boyes who’s responsible for third-party development relations for the PlayStation brand. First announcement from him was a 30-day exclusive beta for Dead Island 2, along with a trailer for the game. 

Adam Boyes further revealed that the clickers and bloaters from The Last of Us would be making an appearance in the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on August 19. This was quickly followed by a world premiere gameplay trailer for Battlefield Hardline.

Boyes talked about the PS3 and PS4 players of Destiny to receive a standalone co-op adventures on Mars, on launch day along with Sony’s new partnership with Paradox Interactive to bring Magicka 2 for the PS4.

One among the biggest surprises was the announcement of Grim Fandango Remastered Edition, exclusively for the PS4 and PS Vita, by Double Fine Productions.
