6d ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin announced today that Transistor comes to PS4 on May 20th, 2014.

To quote: Transistor is coming soon! Mark your calendar for May 20th, 2014 – In just a few weeks, our next game will be available on PS4! We've been putting the finishing touches on it, and we think it's just about ready.

If you're not familiar with the game, Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city.

Gameplay seamlessly integrates thoughtful strategic planning with fast-paced action and rich atmospheric storytelling. During the course of the adventure, you'll piece together the Transistor's mysteries as you pursue its former owners.

This week at PAX East in Boston, several of us from Supergiant will be taking a short break from development to show you some of our latest progress. We'll have a near-final build of the game running on PS4, which you'll be able to get your hands on at our booth (#892). It was one year ago at PAX East that we showed Transistor for the first time!

We'll have more details about Transistor in the days leading up to our launch next month. Until then, here are some quick facts we wanted to share - stay tuned for...

17w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov announced that Furmins is out on PS Vita beginning today!

To quote: Happy holidays, everyone! Furmins - an innovative physics puzzle game - is out today on PS Vita.

In Furmins, players guide a bunch of adorable creatures across cunningly designed levels by rearranging a variety of items, as well as using bumpers and conveyor belts in real-time with coordinated precision.

The quest at hand: to travel across the length of their world to wake up their King, who has fallen asleep and rolled over a river to form an impromptu dam that threatens their very existence! Strategically placed items create pathways and physical chain reactions, which guide the furmins to the basket - and level completion.

The PS Vita version offers exclusive features such as a brand new scoring system, global and per-world scoreboards with filters (overall, friends, your score), and the possibility to play with both the touch screen and rear touch pad.





Features

•A complete version of the game containing 108 levels across 9 game worlds (the 9th world coming as DLC)
•Unique blend of physics-based, set-up-and-go play with real-time interaction

18w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King announced that Pinball Arcade PS4 is officially out tomorrow on the PlayStation 4.

To quote: The holidays are here, and we're happy to be launching Pinball Arcade on PS4 tomorrow!

We've been working hard all year on remastering and relighting the classic pinball tables in our game to take advantage of the PS4′s power. And you're getting a table on PS4 for free.

That table happens to be one of the best pinballs of all time, Tales of the Arabian Nights, which was designed and manufactured by Williams in 1996. We can't wait for people to try it who may never have tried pinball before. Pinball is a much deeper game than some people think.

Out Tomorrow

The digital version goes live this week in North America. The blu-ray is also getting delivered to a few retailers this week - a great stocking stuffer for anyone who likes pinball (hint hint).

We're launching with all of our Season One content available. That's more than 20 tables worthy of first ballot Pinball Hall of Fame inductions. In fact, nine of the top fourteen ever, according to pinside.com are available from day one on PS4. We're humbled to get to recreate these masterpieces for all of the real pinball fans out...
