Sony has made it a point to embrace indie and other small developers to fill in the gaps between the PlayStation 4’s big AAA-budget games. As such, the PlayStation 4 is now getting weekly releases, such as today’s Doki-Doki Universe.

Today yet another upcoming PlayStation 4 title was announced. Voofoo Studios, the makers of PlayStation 3 (and PS Vita) games Hustle Kings and Pure Chess have announced that they are bringing a pool game to Sony’s next-generation console. Titled Pure Pool, the game promises to simulate a real pool hall, complete with extra-shiny next-gen billiard balls. Over on the PlayStation Blog Voofoo Studios Creative Producer Shaun Read stated that the developer will “blur your perception of what’s real and what’s a game” and “won’t be happy until Pure Pool is…an essential purchase for every proud PS4 owner.”

Along with the announcement, Voofoo has released a teaser trailer for what PS4 owners might expect from Pure Pool. Though the video is little more than a tech demo, the end of the trailer is interesting in that it announces Pure Pool will be coming to PlayStation 4 sometime in 2014.

    Isn’t it amazing how sex is used to sell everything in America. Men are constantly bombarded with it. America really is a walking hypocrisy. We tell everyone sex is evil and then we turn around and use it to sell everything under the sun. A good friend of mine is actually in jail because of sex. He had sex with an underage girl. The girl didn’t press charges. She actually writes him in prison. The state pressed charges. So his life is ruined because of a consensual event that harmed no one and the girl still writes. I don’t blame the girl. She did all she could to stop the system from sending him to jail. She even got up in the middle of court and told everyone she knew exactly what she was doing. It is just sad how America is. We are so selectively moral about everything and we create harm when there was none to start with.

    The girl in this ad made me think of that and how we send mixed messages to everyone. What does a sexy girl have to do with shooting pool — nothing. Yet, most of the people playing this game will be 8-14 year old guys. I wish we were more responsible with this. Stop using sex to sell everything and on the other side, stop ruining peoples entire lives when they have consensual sex. You aren’t making the world any safer. After all, the people consented and people will always consent when it comes to sex. Attraction doesn’t know ages.

    By the way, I played pool my entire life. Real pool is better than video game pool. A lot more fun. I love video games though. But not for pool.

      i dont know the story. But the reason they sent him to jail is because its illegal for them to do it . Kids are just hitting puberty and stuff . they arent in better control of their emotions nor do they have the maturity and age to give consent . it like how when your a infant u crap your self you have no control , nor are you potty trained . it wasn't consented u perve because she cant give consent . It true every person is different . its possible she could have been mature and evolved enough . But an another main reason is if your younger and u have sex you could have a child and your body wouldn't be physically strong enough etc etc to bear a healthy . because your own body would still be developing
