Hotline Miami is coming to the PS4 on August 19, Sony just announced. If playing this excellent hyperviolent indie game on the new console isn’t enough good news, Sony also promised will feel even more violent than ever before thanks to some newfangled DualShock 4 features.
Gamers can now use DualShock 4′s touch pad to look around and lock on enemies, and actually shake the controller itself to perform execution moves when you have an enemy pinned on the ground. And to take the violence to the next level, the sounds of those same execution moves are amplified through the speaker on the DualShock 4 itself. Ouch.
There’s nothing quite as exciting as inspired game developers using ambitious new technology to give gamers ever more means to experiment with “creative brutality”, now is there?
