A Look At Detroit: Become Human's Disturbing But Effective PSX Exhibit

In one of PlayStation Experience's halls within Anaheim's Convention Center, people are encouraged to do a little window shopping. The items up for purchase are androids from Quantic Dreams' forthcoming neo-noir thriller, Detroit: Become Human. The androids are obviously human actors, but for a brief instant, every showgoer who walks by is transported into a world where people shop for helpers. The android vending machines feature display screens that inform you of their functions, price, rental options, and even something called a "replacement campaign."

As you walk by each machine, the androids look at you quizzically. Some will even wave or offer a polite (yet robotic) smile. Just thinking that you could walk up to one of these machines, and spend $7,999 to walk away with a human-like helper is unnerving. It's a clever display on Sony's part, as you immediately start thinking about what it would be like to live in that society.

You can see a brief video of the display below. The empty container is for showgoers who want to pose for photos. Apologies for the video quality. I'm mobile on the show floor and the only way to get the video up was to compress the hell out of it.

Capcom Brings Street Fighter 1, 2, 3, And Alpha To PS4 In One Collection

Capcom started off its yearly Capcom Cup tournament with a bang, announcing something fans have wanted for a long time: A Collection of pretty much every major Street Fighter game save for Street Fighter IV and V.

The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection includes 12 games, which might sound weird since there aren't that many numbered Street Fighter titles. But the various versions of II, III, and all three Alpha games (whose entries are more distinct than the later two subseries). The games included are:

Online play will also be included for Hyper Fighting, Turbo, Alpha 3, and 3rd Strike. The collection also promises "Arcade Perfect" gamplay, Image Galleries, Interactive Timeline concept art, a music archive, and sprite viewers for every game. The collection is due to hit in May 2018.

The Last Of Us Part II's PSX Panel Introduced Us To The Cast

PSX's big closing panel this year was an introduction to the cast, both known and unknown, of The Last of Us Part II.

The panel opened with a performance of a new song from The Last of Us Part II, with Joel's voice actor Troy Baker and Ellie's voice actress Ashley Johnson singing a soulful song with possibly literal or symbolic lyrics that director Neil Druckmann refused to show his cards on.

Baker, Johnson, Druckmann, and co-writer Halley Rose sat on the panel and talked about their roles in bringing the world a sequel to The Last of Us. Rose, who has written for TV shows like Westworld, pointed out how different video game writing is from TV. Explaining that she came up with an idea to get the characters from one place to another, Druckmann asked her what the fail state for the scenario would be, which Rose didn't understand at the time.
