Third party support for PS4 includes Blizzard and Diablo III

Sony has announced that practically every publisher in the world will support PS4, before inviting a few of them to the stage to show of their games.

First off was Capcom, which showed off an incredible looking title known as Deep Down. The game uses a new rendering engine which has been built to utilise the power of the PlayStation 4.

The game looked very fantasy based and pretty impressive.

Next up was Square Enix who showed off its new Luminous Engine. The demo shown looked very familiar, in fact it may very well have been the same footage shown at E3 when Square was showing off its engine then. Either way it was very impressive since it was running real time on the PS4.

Square couldn't leave without an announcement and that was that a new Final Fantasy title is in development for PS4 and that it will be detailed at this year's E3.

Ubisoft was next to take the stage, announcing that Watch Dogs will be coming to PS4.
To explain more on the game Ubisoft went into more detail, revealing that you'll be able to tap into everyone's lives and explore the open world, which they say has never before been so engaging.

A new demo was shown of the game which looked very impressive, showing the main protaganist wandering the streets and interacting with passers by. Doing so he was able to hack their bank accounts, look into their personal details and more.?

To continue the third party support Sony then introduced Blizzard to the stage. Obviously this was quite unexpected, however there was a reason. Blizzard have teamed up with Sony to bring console players to its best games, including Diablo III which will be released on PS4 and incredibly PS3 too.

Finally, Bungie also took to the stage, revealing that Destiny will be coming to the PS4, while also showing off a new video of the game. In addition, it was revealed that the PlayStation community will get exclusive content for the game.

Really wanted to play Diablo 3 but my pc is rubbish, so its ideal that this will be coming to PS4. And a new final fantasy? hopefully it is more like the originals rather than 13.

New final fantasy game....PS4 exclusive destiny content. What's not to like here! Just please make sure they release a decent Final fantasy title now. Been to long since I played a good RPG with good story. Miss the days of ff7 and xenogears :)

I hope Blizzard are able to bring more games to the PS4. Diablo III is good on a run through but it does tend to get repetitive. But it's good to see them entering the market. Destiny I can't wait for, it's going to be brilliant.

Watch_Dogs looks pretty damn insane, but I must stress the previous demo showed off looked far better. Why? PC Everybody.

Are you mental? It didn't look 'far better' at all. The only difference was one is based during the day, and one is based during night.

Well this is good news for people who would like to play it on the console, but would people really buy it again? I haven't played it since I have a problem with the "view".
