PlayStation 4, the ever-coveted game system that boasts hi-fi graphics, is in the headlines this week after retail giant GameStop announced they would be donating several of them to the Ronald McDonald House.
The charity organization provides a safe place for families to stay while their children receive treatment at a hospital located far from their home, and a representative for Sony–the company that makes PS4–says their goal is to give visitors to the houses a chance to relax and have fun.
“When families come to a Ronald McDonald House, they are going through an extremely difficult, trying period. Our hope is by teaming up with GameStop we can help add some fun to the homes and bring excitement and laughter to families when they need it most,” said director of sales Chip McTighe.
Each of the 180 Ronald McDonald House locations across the country will receive a PlayStation bundle, which will include an extra DualShock 4 controller and these games: LittleBigPlanet 3, Driveclub, and MLB 15: The Show.
PlayStation 4 is on the minds of many gamers this week after a firmware update was released; according to VG24/7, the update will improve system software stability during use of some features, as well as operation quality.
Several new games have just been announced for PS4, as well, and Square Enix is at the top of the list of companies who will share their titles with the system. Producer Shinji Hashimoto sat down for a recent interview, saying their goal is to put out even more games this year and next than have been announced.
“We want to help spread PS4 even more. If that happens, even more games will come out, which would make me even happier,” Hashimoto said.
