Sony has sold more than 30.2 million PlayStation 4 consoles as of Nov. 22, the company announced in a press release today, citing internal sales estimates.
According to Sony, the PS4 "continues to demonstrate the fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation hardware history."
The PS4 launched on Nov. 15, 2013, meaning the system reached its latest sales milestone in two years and one week. That would put the PS4 ahead of Sony's own PlayStation 2, the company's best-selling console, in terms of sales at the same point in its market availability.
In just over two years Sony's sold over 30 million PlayStation 4s. That tally was 20.2 million in March, and now ahead of the busy holiday shopping season we have word from the Japanese tech giant that it's sold through more than 30.2 million consoles to some 124 countries and regions globally. That's roughly 1.25 million consoles per month since then, as of November 22nd. Impressive! Of course, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One was the number one-selling console in October recently, and that Halo 5 was the best selling game last month, but as per usual didn't give out any hard numbers.
Bombshell, an action RPG currently in development from 3D Realms and Interceptor, had been set to launch sometime towards the end of this year. New developments have deemed that launch date to be premature, and the developers have made the decision to push the release back to January 29th, 2016. “Over the last several weeks, ...

What Is It: An open world action adventure game set in Victorian London, with all of the series’ usual trappings. Expect to pay: $60/£40 Developer: Ubisoft Publisher: Ubisoft Reviewed On: Intel i7 x980 3.33 GHz, 9 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Multiplayer: No Link: Official Site
Alexander Graham Bell, one of several historical celebrities I've met within mere moments of setting foot in Victorian London, has given me a rope launcher. Cool. With it I can quickly grapple my way to rooftops and create ziplines between buildings to slide across. It's fairly clunky and somewhat limited—I often find myself staring at a nearby roof and wondering why the hell I'm not allowed to sling over to it when I've reached smokestacks twice as far away—but it's still fun and gives me a way to escape, Batman-like, from a brawl I'm badly losing. It also provides an alternative to freerunning across rooftops, which feels the same as it does in other Assassin's Creed games: fun and dynamic at first, but ultimately a bit routine, and sometimes even exasperating. That's not a bad way to describe Assassin's Creed: Syndicate itself. There's a good first half where almost everything is fun and exciting, and slowly but surely it begins to drag.
The game takes place 30 years after Retro City Rampage, with that game's protagonist, The Player, coming "out of early retirement to rebuild his neglected corporate empire," said developer Brian Provinciano in a PlayStation Blog post. Retro City Rampage was an 8-bit take on Grand Theft Auto that parodied classic arcade games and pop culture from the '80s and '90s, and Shakedown Hawaii looks similar in its debut trailer, which you can watch above.
Along with 16-bit visuals, Shakedown Hawaii will offer destructible environments in its open world, plus "an arsenal of supercharged weapons." It also seems like it will serve as another send-up of video games: The title evokes Dennaton Games' Hotline Miami series, and Vblank announced the game with a poster (see below) that pays homage to the Max Payne 3 cover from Game Informer's July 2009 issue.
As previously announced, Star Wars Battlefront will receive its first pack of downloadable content, the free Star Wars: The Force Awakens back story The Battle of Jakku starting Dec. 1. Previously teased in a short trailer, publisher Electronic Arts shared new details today on what to expect from the DLC and hinted at the arrival of more free content in the future.
As seen above, EA released new artwork from the map, which will be available next Tuesday to anyone who pre-ordered the game and Dec. 8 for everyone else. While it previously confirmed that the Battle of Jakku takes place 29 years before the events of the upcoming film, EA emphasized that the two new maps you'll play through help to set the stage for The Force Awakens.
Not only does the DLC have a connection to next month's new Star Wars film, but it adds something new to Battlefront, too. The pack will introduce a new gameplay mode, called Turning Point. 40 players can take part in the Rebel Alliance as you fight off the Empire. To successfully stage a coup, the Rebels will have to clear various checkpoints on the way to capturing the Empire's base.
