Welcome to another episode of our Monthly Releases Spotlight, the video series where we run down all of the games coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita over the next 4 weeks.
Lifted from our detailed releases schedule, September is jam-packed with AAA blockbusters and delightful indies, toplined by Konami’s hotly-anticipated swan song, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Keep an eye out for PlayStation LifeStyle’s Monthly Releases Spotlight at the beginning of every month or the last week of the previous month to know which games to buy for the following month.
Please bear in mind that these release dates are subject to change, and if you’ve noticed a hitch don’t hesitate to drop us a line at email@example.com.
Tell us, do you plan on picking up any of the aforementioned titles? Let us know using the comments section below.
As the headline states, some retailers have broken the September 1 release date and are selling MGSV: TPP a tad early.
So, don't watch streams, be careful of social media, and just do everything you can to avoid spoilers. I mean, one of the franchise's strongest points is its story, right? Best to experience it for yourself fresh.
Konami is Defending the Micro-Transactions in PvP...
Erm, yeah. Not a fan of micro-transactions? Apparently early reports mentioned how the FOB mode is hidden behind a paywall (which isn't true).
Here's Konami's statement:
GameSpot posted an article following the review that the PVP (FOB) mode in MGSV TPP will be restricted behind a micro-transaction paywall and that is simply not true. The FOB mode will be fully accessible at launch and the micro-transaction layer to that specific feature in the game primarily acts as an accelerator. We’ll have more details at launch, but we did try and clear these rumours up when they started circulating during E3. We even addressed this in our official E3 2015 demo when it went live during that show.
Thankfully, Sony's now-gen console is the one getting the best versions of most games these days (unlike last-gen). PS4 version of The Phantom Pain runs at 1080p/60fps! Xbox One is not far behind, but not up to par, which isn't surprising at this point.
