Today Gearbox Publishing announced their first-person action / adventure game We Happy Few is coming to PlayStation 4 on April 13, 2018 with a PS4 trailer video below!
The alternative 1960s England style game takes place in the city of Wellington Wells where conformity is key with citizens blocking out their traumatic memories of the town's past using a literal happy pill called “Joy.”
Those who pre-order at PlayStation Store will also get a new PS4 Theme and the in-game Jolly Brolly parasol weapon, and here's more from Gearbox Publishing Community Coordinator Meredith Hershey to quote:
Sony's latest PlayStation Store sale is offering 50% off select PSN games and movies with PS Plus members saving up to 60% off them!
Here's more from Sony Digital Games Business Manager Brian Fujimoto, to quote: Head over to PS Store through the week to scoop up titles like Destiny – The Collection, Outlast 2 and The Surge – as well as movies like XXX: Return of Xander Cage and Hacksaw Ridge.
Check out the lineup below, but don’t wait too long. PS Store's Attack of the Blockbuster Sale ends August 22 at 8 AM PST.
Recently VVildCard777 tweeted a PSA out letting those with a stock PS4 1.76 and below console who haven't updated their Firmware know not to ever allow any of THESE Sony URLs to connect to it because when they do a special piece of data in the operating system is removed.
This comes after zecoxao's virgin PS4 OS backup comparison of the normal / JIG bank encrypted area inside the chunk at 0x9C0000.
Sony also removes the 'special piece of data' whenever a new PlayStation 4 console (regardless of OFW version) is updated from the stock version or accesses those URLs, however, currently scene developers are interested in those with untouched PlayStation 4 consoles on 1.76 and below.
Following his recent PS4 Playground 1.50b Port, PlayStation 4 developer zecoxao with help from VVildCard777 added PlayStation 4 Webkit Playground 1.52 and 1.60 Firmware ports to Github today for those seeking to examine pre-2.00 OFW versions before Sony ramped up the security.
