Yesterday, I watched PlayStation Experience 2015 keynote live on YouTube and I am gonna be honest with you guys here; it wasn’t what me and my friends expected it to be. For one thing, it wasn’t too exciting. However I did appreciate the fact that indie games and Play Station VR titles got a fair share of attention.
Regardless, PlayStation still knows how to make an entrance. The show started off with a video about a man speaking about much gaming has progressed and developed since the arcade era. Sony always makes sure to stress their dedication to their games and gamers and it did so too this time. The event went on smoothly, except for a minor hiccup during the VR on stage demo. Without further ado, here are all the announcements and trailers that were released at PlayStation Experience 2015.
Uncharted 4 gets a new trailer
The show started off with an Uncharted 4 trailer. See a UC4 trailer wasn’t surprising but seeing it at the beginning was. The trailer wasn’t explosive or action packed like the usual ones but rather it was a piece of exposition featuring Sam, Nathan’s elder brother. Uncharted 4 comes out on March 18th, 2016 exclusively on the PS4 and you can check out the trailer below.
