PS4 trailers of E3. Hold onto your wallets
E3 2014 is underway in LA and, as is tradition, trailers are being unleashed for all the new games.
The next-gen titles of the PS4 look stunning at the best of times but when rolled into perfectly edited trailers for the gaming event of the year you get something really special.
We've got the best of the PS4 trailer bunch for you to enjoy in one place right here.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
The trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End starts off with the subtly self aware line, "Well. What do you think?" before opening on a close-up of lead character Nathan Drake. It's clearly a question aimed at the viewer as well as the dialogue focus. We think it's staggering, the most realistic looking Drake yet.
You can tell Drake has aged a bit looking more haggered from the years of jungle, treasure hunting battles. The intensely realistic graphics just add to that.
We can't help but notice the repeated mention of "one last time"? Does that imply it's the last outing for the franchise, or is it all for added hype? Either way as a PS4 exclusive this is a really compelling reason to go next-gen for anyone that hasn't already.
Little Big Planet 3
One of Sony's most loved franchises is due to make a return this Christmas. Little Big Planet 3 is here for round three and this time it's the cooperative multiplayer action that sees the greatest boost.
Our hero Sackboy returns, complete with new powers such as the ability to climb and use his "pumpinator" - it's more like a leaf blower, nothing dodgy - to shift platforms out of the way. The world in Little Big Planet 3 also contains more layers of depth - areas to access in front and behind of the usual play arena.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Seige
Rainbow Six is back and it's making multiplayer amazing. The game was always made as the best possible action scenario for a team-up. Now with wall-destroying detail it looks better than ever in Rainbow Six: Siege.
Shown off in a live multi-player mission, the game's "protect the hostage" scenario shown here took "capture the flag" to another level. Despite some over-the-top commentary throughout, the game looks like a hot addition to the series.
Mortal Kombat X
The latest blood-soaked edition of Mortal Kombat is nearly here. And judging from the trailer it's going to be the most gory version so far.
Next-gen graphics make this game one that's already a hot topic for censorship. The death scenes are graphic to say the least, but isn't that the whole point of the series?
The massive other-world shooter from Halo creators Bungie has been shown off on the PS4 at E3, and it looks stunning.
The Destiny New Beginnings trailer shows a little more story and the in game graphics. It also features the voices of Peter Dinklage in the game and Bill Nighy voicing the trailer.
Destiny will be a persistently online gaming experience with single and multiplayer aspects intertwining in a game world that is massive.
Ubisoft's The Crew has been announced for an 11 November release on the PS4 as well as Xbox One and PC. And the trailer was on show at E3 to celebrate that.
The open-world nature of the game - which is based around the entirety of the USA and depends on online crews to pit against each other in varied missions - gives it individual flaire. It also allows for multiplayer teams that should make for infinite variable outcomes in game.
Far Cry 4
The Far Cry 4 trailer follows you attempting to cross the Himalayan border, but things quickly take a turn for the worse. Dan Hay, the game's executive producer, came on stage at E3 after the trailer and put it eloquently: "we give you a passport, some money, and after that, well, you're f-ed".
The cut scene trailer shows just how cinematically effective the game is going to be. Here's hoping the gameplay is up to a similar standard.
Not only was Battlefront Hardline shown off at E3 but there was also an announcement that the game would be available in beta for PS4 owners immediately.
Battlefront Hardline has completely rejigged the franchise, pulling the action away from traditional soldiering and war battles to the streets of Los Angeles - the location for the game's reveal. A battle still rages, but this time it is between the LA Police and well-armed criminals. And based on the gameplay shown during the company's briefing, it's loud, spectacular and different.
Mirror's Edge 2014
The free running adventure Mirror's Edge 2014 is here as the sequel to the much loved game. The game still isn't ready but it's shaping up to be something pretty special.
Accordingly to game developers DICE, "Mirror's Edge is all about fluidity, physicality and movement." No word, or even a sniff about a release date, but you should take heed in knowing that Sara Jansson, the game's senior producer, is "fortunate enough to play the game we are building every day and cannot wait to share it with all of you."
