It’s funny, because only Canadians want hockey, right Joey?
I’m starting to become a bit more impressed with my PlayStation 4 these days. It was a rough first two years, but we finally have the kind of stuff I’m into: quality Japanese releases like Bloodborne, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, not to mention the huge library of JRPGs over the horizon. I can finally say that the software line-up matches the value of the dropped price.
The PlayStation 4 is worth your $349.99, and if you haven’t picked one up yet, wait until tomorrow!
