Superlatives are fun. “The PS4 is going to kick ass.” “The PS4 will be the best ever.” “SQ is probably the best website you’ve ever seen.” Mark Cerny, the lead architect over at Sony’s PlayStation 4 department, has resorted to that very linguistic avenue when he recently described the upcoming PS4 launch lineup. In a recent three-page interview with GamaSutra, Mr. Cerny made this very bold, yet extremely vague launch prediction: “The launch lineup for PlayStation 4–though I unfortunately can’t give the title count–is going to be stronger than any prior PlayStation hardware.” While pretty much every hardware maker believes this (just to keep the superlative train going), Sony is now just coming out and saying it. While it is arguably the most vague statement of the year, it does feature two words that I think give away what he’s basing his claim on. Hit the link below for our Slightly Qualified take.
No, this has nothing to do with the popular video game series from Bethesda (which I could never really get into; first-person RPG’s and me usually don’t mix), but it does look like it will be pretty stellar. On April 19th, Tom Cruise is back on the big screen alongside Morgan Freeman and former-Bond girl Olga Kurylenko in what looks to be a very cool, post-apocalyptic, fight-for-Earth, sci-fi thriller.
No this is not based on the Elder Scrolls: Oblivion role playing game, but it does look pretty awesome if you enjoy a good sci-fi thriller. Starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, and former-Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, the film is set well into a post-apocalyptic future on earth as Tom Cruise attemps to figure out where he remembers his past, fights off what appears to be an always impressive alien counter-attack, and put the moves on Olga with his special forces, “operator special”, Yankees baseball hat. Oblivion lands in theaters in less than thirty days on April 19th; enjoy the trailer, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
