Playstation 4 Play Everything Road Show in SM North Annex
Yesterday, I manged to take a little peak at the Playstation 4 Play Everything Road Show in SM North EDSA. Since SM North’s pretty big, it’s in one particular place. The place is called the “SM North Annex” where majority of the gadgets and technology are. In this event, people get a chance to play PS4 games that are not yet available. Some of these games include Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the much-awaited Gran Turismo Sport, Knack II, Just Dance, NBA 2K18 some VR games, and Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session.
What was going on?
During the show, gamers from all around the city and the metro then had a chance to play a couple of PS4 games of their choice. They even brought simulators as to make some of the games more fun. One of the games that had a long line was Gran Turismo Sport.
Gran Turismo Sport
Players had a chance to experience the new cars and the racetracks here in the Playstation 4 Play Everything Road Show. However, to get a chance, there was a pretty long line. Each player took at least an average of 5-10 minutes on the console. Hence, it’s a bit of a wait but it was definitely a chance of a lifetime. If you didn’t get a chance, they were selling the simulator controls such as the pedals and the steering wheel right next to the booth.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
90’s kids, remember everyone’s favourite bandicoot? Remember those times you ran the Oriental Express again and again just to get that relic? Or, the SFX of when Crash or Coco get Aku-Aku as an ally? Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy resurrected that in the Playstation 4 Play Everything Road Show except with a few twists. In Midnight Run, they added a few obstacles. Also, there were some delays in reaction time especially in the response time coming from the models. However, this is what adds to the fun in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Players then needed to anticipate the incoming obstacles before they get killed.
Taiko no Tatsujin
Taiko no Tatsujin is a kid friendly game that people of all ages can play. Similar to the arcade version of this game, players get to play a variety of songs on the drum. One of the songs were Let it Go by Takako Matsu from Disney’s 2013 Movie: Frozen. People could even play the classical music like certain a certain Overture. Players could also select how difficult they wanted it. For those who were hard core gamers for Taiko no Tatsujin, some selected hard mode.
What happens after completing those games?
Upon entering the Playstation 4 Play Everything Road Show, there’s a ticket-like board the staff will give which will serve as your Ques
Upon receiving your quest card, you have to play 3 out of any of the games within the area. After that, you receive a stamp for every time you play a certain game. Once you complete the game, you’ll have to do a survey and then you’ll get a prize. Some received posters but others also received Icon Clips or Paper clips after finishing all the games.
With that, it was a pretty fun experience. People could also buy PS4 controllers and specialized kinds of controllers for lower prices. Others could also buy 2 PS4 games for the price of one. It was a pretty good showcase of games especially for those not yet released in the Philippines.
