Hotline Miami and OlliOlli Coming To PlayStation 4
Two new titles will be joining the library of games on Sony’s next generation console. The first one is OlliOlli, a game that is out for the PS Vita right now. It will be coming to the PS4 and PS3, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog by Simon Bennett, owner and Director at roll7, the game’s developer.
“We met with Shahid Ahmad and Spencer Low who help run the Strategic Content team at SCEE, and they recommended that we get the game onto PS4 and PS3. So that’s what we are doing! We have partnered with BlitWorks, based in Barcelona, Spain. We already have a first playable version up and running on the PS4 and a big screen, it’s like our little OlliOlli grew up and got some balls! It really feels amazing on the Dualshock 4 too.”
“OlliOlli will remain a PS Vita exclusive until summer 2014 and Roll7 is very close to getting the crash bug that some of you have complained about fixed. When the patch is released we’ll bundle in a nice little update that should put a smile on people’s faces too.”- excerpts from the PS Blog post
OlliOlli is a 2D skateboard game that challenges players to perform the perfect tricks in midair. Gamers have to perfect a level with even the smallest mistake taking away a lot of points from you. Those who persevere will however be able to attempt far more challenging levels as they unlock.
Hotline Miami is the other game that will be coming to the PS4 with cross-buy support, which means that if you own the game on the PS3 or Vita, then you’ll be able to play it on Sony’s next generation console. Nigel Lowrie, the “head important guy” at Devolver Digital, the game’s publisher, revealed the news in a conversation with Destructoid.
“We feel like if the users bought it on a PlayStation platform, they have the right to own it on Vita, on PS4, on PS3.” – Nigel Lowrie
Hotline Miami is a 2D top-down action game from Dennaton Games, that blends stealth, insane violence and surreal storytelling. The nameless protagonist wakes up and follows the cryptic instructions on his answering machine, like giving a VIP at a hotel a “great stay.” All of them are metaphors for killing everyone in sight.
