Star Ocean: The Last Hope Remastered US Release Date revealed

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

It has recently been revealed today via Square Enix, that the release date for Star Ocean: The Last Hope (AKA Star Ocean 4) will release in tandem with it’s Japanese date slated for November 28th. PS Plus users will be able to take advantage of a 10% discount making the game available for purchase at $20.99 USD but only for a limited time as this 10% off PS Plus deal is only available until December 12th. Also available now if you haven’t heard Star Ocean: Til the end of time. Is currently available in the PS Store as a PS2 classic for $20.99. So if you’re looking for your full fix of the Star Ocean experience PlayStation is where you need to be.

Editors Opinion: This is a great move as stated in one of our previous articles. I honestly speculated that this would be available for purchase in 2018. I’m happy to see that I was wrong very wrong. As I am looking forward to purchasing this game. As I haven’t finished a Star Ocean Game since PS2. Although I love the franchise the recent official PS4 iteration failed to keep me engaged. Although I enjoy the fighting system very much so. At any rate this is a great move and hopefully from the engagement and reception of these HD remakes it will push for Square Enix and Tri-Ace to move forward with a more immersive and satisfying story for the Star Ocean Series.

What do you think are you interested in this purchase now that it’s set to coincide with it’s Japanese release date? Are you excited or unphased by this announcement. Comment below let us know. For news like this and more make sure check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

Editors Opinion: Games like SingStar are great for parties, Although I haven’t taken part in any Karaoke events in a while. The Sing star series is great for kids and adults alike and if you’re familiar with the activeness from the PS3 community as it’s grown into the PS4 community the Sing Star Brand is one of PlayStation’s Hidden gems. Even at events like PSX (which we’ll have footage and articles of) You’ll come find that it’s one of PlayStation’s beloved franchised all while being in a niche gaming space. And with Android and iOS supported devices this has the possibility to expand into the next generation of PlayStation Gamer. Because who remembers having to pay for SingStar Mics right?

Andrew House Steps Down as President & Chief Executive of Sony Interactive Entertainment

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

In an abrupt wave of shock and multiple outlets reporting, It has been revealed that PlayStation Boss, President and Chief Executive Andrew House has stepped down from his position in SIE effective immediately as Deputy President John Kodera will assume his position. It has been stated that “House will remain on as a director and the chairman of SIE “through the year to ensure a smooth transition,” the statement said.

As of now there is no specific reasoning behind this move as it has caught many of us off guard in the same manner that the departure of former PS Boss Jack Tretton leaving PlayStation as Shawn Layden assumed his role.

Sources from Polygon report: House has been with Sony since 1990 and, after moving from corporate communications into marketing for what was then called Sony Computer Entertainment, he was involved in the launch of the first PlayStation. He took over as president and chief executive of SCE (SIE since 2016) in 2011, replacing Kazuo Hirai, who is now the president and chief executive of all of Sony.

Alongside this news via the Wallstreet Journal it reports that  The sales of 78 million PlayStation 4’s  have been sold under House’s leadership and PlayStation has grown into subscriber base of 70 million. It also noted the launches of PlayStation Vue and PlayStation VR under his term. “He has grown the Game and Network Services segment into one of the key profit drivers for the Sony Group,” the statement said.

“PlayStation has been a huge part of my life for more than 20 years but with the business having achieved record-breaking success, now seemed to be the right time for me to pursue new challenges,” House said in Sony’s statement. “John and the team at SIE are world-class and I know the future of PlayStation is very bright.”

It should be noted however that John Kodera has been with the PlayStation brand for while also as he has played a role in creating partnerships launches such as PlayStation Vue, PlayStation Video, and PlayStation Music, which is partnered with Spotify.

Upon the news of the change in roles Kodera stated:

“I intend to build on the amazing progress Andy has made enhancing the PlayStation brand and expanding the game and network services business,” Kodera said in Sony’s statement, “and will strive to further strengthen the unique value proposition we are able to offer via the PlayStation platform.”

Editors Opinion: We can only hope as PlayStation fans that the transition is smooth and that this change won’t effect the current quality of games and flow of things we’ve come to love this PlayStation generation. It also makes me curious as toward how the PS5 and PlayStation Experience events will change or if they will continue to transpire going forward. I’m not too educated on the inner workings of this level of business so from the outside looking in as a fan. One can only hope this doesn’t drastically effect what we know and love from the PlayStation Brand.

Enough of my thoughts, tell us what you think of this news so far? How do you think it will affect the PlayStation Brand? What do you want and do not want to see? Comment below and let us know. For more news make sure to check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

It was announced earlier this summer, a beta would be releasing for the shooter first on PS4 August 25th (for those who Pre Order), with the open beta starting for everyone else on September 1st. If you’re one of those people (like myself) dying to get your hands on the game, maybe this bit of information about the new create a class system will hold you until then. Call of Duty: WWII releases for the PS4 on November 4th, 2017.

Call of Duty WWIIThere will be five divisions which will be included in the Call of Duty:WWII beta, here’s an overview of each division from the PlayStation Blog:

Armored Division:
This Division specializes in laying down a withering offense to buy their team breathing room. Their bipod-equipped light machinegun shreds lightly armored targets, while their armor protects them from enemy explosives, tactical equipment and flamethrowers. When extra punch is required, the Anti-Tank Grenade sticky bomb is the ideal choice.

Division Skill:
LMG Bipod III: Protect territory by mounting your machinegun on ledges or while prone for less recoil
Division Training

Armored III:Immune to Shell Shock and Tactical Equipment. Take less
fire damage. Take less explosives damage.Amored Division

Mountain Division
Remaining undetected, this Division excels at covert operations and stealth gameplay. When armed with sniper rifles, the Mountain Division prefers to stay at a distance, waiting patiently for the perfect shot. If detected, smoke grenades and the S-Mine 44 “Bouncing Betty” provide opportunities to escape or retaliate.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Closed Beta Delayed Until September

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Bandai Namco announced that the closed beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ has been delayed officially beginning September 16th-18th. The closed beta sign-up date has also been moved, with the new date to August 22nd, instead of the original July 26th date. Dragon Ball FighterZ is expected to released on the PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in early 2018.

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. would like to thank all its fans for their tremendous support for DRAGON BALL FighterZ. We recently announced at EVO 2017 that the closed beta sign-ups for DRAGON BALL FighterZ would begin on July 26, 2017; due to the volume of excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this announcement, we have decided to expand the capacity of the closed beta in an effort to enable more players to participate in the program. 

We are also working to bolster our background systems to ensure that the closed beta registration and selection process can accept the volume of anticipated sign-ups. 

However, these efforts will necessitate a slight delay for the closed beta sign-up date, which will move to August 22, 2017 with the official start of the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Closed Beta officially commencing from September 16 -18. We would like to thank all of our fans for their patience and understanding; we look forward to sharing more news about the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Closed Beta program soon. Thank you.

The close beta will have nine playable characters, with newly introduced Piccolo, and Krillin joining Goku, Vegeta, Teen Gohan, Majin Buu, Freeza, Cell, and Trunks.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Piccolo’s character explanation: Piccolo is considered to be one of the most technical characters with his expandable arm to grab his opponents. He has various ways to break the opponent’s guard and he can also fire fast and powerful beams. Players can charge up for a stronger attack by long-pressing the button. To create a huge blow, Piccolo can use his ability to release Ki blast from afar or for an effective strike, players can even connect it with a combo move!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Krillin character explanation: Krillin doesn’t have that much reach and power but easily compensates with several different techniques such as the Kamehameha to fight a long-range game. He can also skillfully confuse his opponents by leaving an image of himself before turning into an attack. Furthermore, players have the choice to use the famous Senzu Bean. Fans will also be delighted to know that his signature and blockable attack is also included in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
