Hotline Miami Coming To PS4 On August 19

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?


    Cross buy, too, which is nice for those of us who already bought it.

      Awesome, came here to find out if that was the case. Cross-buy is a brilliant feature.

        Yeah, I'm really liking the number of my old PS3 games that are getting cross-buy PS4 versions. The forthcoming PS4 version of Spelunky is also cross buy, and hopefully the PS4 version of Journey will be, too.

        In the absence of backwards compatibility, this is probably the next best thing.

    Got it when it was on PlayStation Plus for Vita. Do not regret downloading it one bit. Very unique game and THAT soundtrack!

      I got it for $4 during the Christmas sale, and am eagerly awaiting the sequel!
