Manila, Philippines – Following a historic year marked by successful partnership launches with renowned global brands like iflix and Fox Entertainment Channels for content, and Microsoft and Intel for the TVolution Stick, PLDT HOME, the digital services unit of leading telco PLDT, is back in the spotlight, this time, to herald the arrival of a new era in ultimate gaming at home.
After bagging the best digital innovation honor at the recently concluded CIO Asia Awards, PLDT HOME’s most powerful brand, Fibr, in partnership with multinational entertainment giant Sony, is set to provide the best home gaming experience with an exciting partnership offer for fun-loving Filipino families and gaming enthusiasts.
Considered by gamers as one of the most powerful gaming consoles in the world, the PS4™ provides deeply immersive experiences through rich and high-fidelity graphics. It is powered by a custom chip that contains eight x86-64 cores and a state of the art 1.84 TFLOPS graphics processor with 8 GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 unified system memory. This translates to easier game creation and enhanced richness of content achievable on the platform.
One of the most popular games for PS4 is the Nathan Drake series dubbed Uncharted. Widely known as one of the most revered game series of all time, it is recognized as a genre-defining epic that changed the game for adventure storytelling. After three successful installments, a fourth chapter, entitled Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, is expected to be released this year. It picks up several years after the last adventure of retired fortune hunter Nathan Drake as he is forced back into the world of thieves.
PLDT VP and Home Marketing Director Gary Dujali said, “Last year, we raised the bar for home entertainment with our compelling product and multimedia content portfolio. This year, we’re bringing gaming into the fold and leveling up the experience for our subscribers by empowering them to enjoy ultimate gaming at home.
PLDT HOME Fibr will be bundled with a Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4™) gaming console for an additional P749 per month within a 36-month period. And for only an additional P100 at P849 per month, subscribers will also get complimentary copy of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End when it launches on May 10th.
“We’re thrilled to be working with a like-minded digital leader like PLDT HOME.” President and Managing Director of Sony Philippines Nobuyoshi Otake added.
PLDT HOME Fibr delivers the first and fastest Internet of up to 1 Gbps, allowing high-speed browsing of multiple websites and the country’s first symmetrical speed service.
