The world of Hohokum is full of surprise; even running into certain objects can be its own reward as the interaction produces a tune or sounds that add to the level’s music track. From the way a player navigates the world to the various ways characters communicate to the abstract vivid artwork, Hohokum is an expressive and mesmerizing universe.

I bet PS4 will have 50% or more marketshare by end of 2015, RubberWhistleHistle bets it won't.

I bet PS4 will have 50% or more marketshare by end of 8th gen, RubberWhistleHistle bets it won't.

Yep August should be a good month for PS4. Don't forget The Last of Us as well, late July release most places and 1st August release for UK.

Oh, I forgot about TLOUR, that will push some consoles.


NPD?!? So 350k-370k in only US? Are you sure about that? That would imply that if we take europe vs US trends right now, that PS4 will sell nearly 1 million in august. I think not.
