Video: Octodad: Dadliest Catch Flails to PlayStation 4 on Tuesday

50°
22w ago - Sony Creative Director Kevin Zuhn announced today that Octodad: Dadliest Catch flails to PS4 this coming Tuesday with details below.

To quote: Hello octopus fans, I've got great news! Octodad: Dadliest Catch is launching on PlayStation 4 next week!

For those of you unfamiliar with Octodad, he's a normal everyday father with an adoring family, but he just so happens to be an octopus!

Life for him is a neverending struggle to control his wobbly limbs and to conceal his cephalopod secret from his loved ones. In Dadliest Catch, Octodad and his family take a disastrous trip to the aquarium, putting him at odds with marine biologists, a manic sushi chef, and his wife's ever rising suspicions

We started Octodad as a ragtag group of students, and it's been a long and crazy ride getting our silly game on the PS4. This is our first foray into consoles, and we're proud to be here.

We released Octodad on PC back in January, and since then we've taken the time to improve it based on feedback from our players. The latter third of the game in particular has gone through some radical changes, with added challenges like deck swabbing, jig dancing, and new disguises to wear!

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Crashes, Stumbles, and Flops on to PS4

67w ago - Young Horses President & Co-Founder Phil Tibitoski announced at E3 today that Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be crashing, stumbling and flopping on to PS4 / PlayStation 4 console.

To quote: Have you ever felt out of place? Just don't feel you're good enough, no matter how hard you try? Maybe you've got something to hide from the world.

Maybe you're not really the perfect human husband and father of three, but actually an octopus. This is what Octodad: Dadliest Catch is all about. You have a loving wife. You have adorable kids. They, however, have no idea of your secret cephalopod nature.

[Register or Login to view links] is the first slapstick fatherhood simulator, and we're excited to say that we'll be bringing it to the PlayStation 4 in 2014.

You may be asking yourself, "Well, what's so difficult about being an octopus?"

Well, first off, you're an invertebrate, so you have no bones. Your body is gelatinous. As you can imagine, that makes it hard to simply move around outside of water.

All those things we humans take for granted, like counteracting gravity, are a constant challenge. Oh, and you have eight arms you've managed to stuff into a fancy suit to form a human shape. There are...
 

Can Sony's PlayStation 3 Console Catch Up to the XBox 360?

500°
296w ago - Microsoft has recently been boasting that it has an 8 million global lead over the PS3, and that the PS3's sales figures aren't dramatically rising.

However, analyst Michael Pachter believes that if they were to price the PS3 at parity with the XBox 360, then sales of the PS3 would eventually exceed the XBox 360 sales and Sony would catch up.

To quote: I expect it this year, as soon as their cost structure permits a cut. My Monday note said April, and that is nothing more than a guess. It could come later, but it seems to me that it must come some time in 2009.

With that said, I think that PS3 will sell well once competitively priced. The company has an insurmountable advantage in Japan, and an overall brand loyalty in Europe. Should they price at parity with Xbox 360 ($299), I think that PS3 sales would exceed 360 sales, and eventually, they could catch up.

At present, it doesn't look like that is happening any time soon, so Sony should be prepared to remain in third place until well after they cut price.
 

PlayStation 3 for $250, Same Price as Wii but Includes a Catch

350°
303w ago - Pop quiz: Which is the cheapest current-gen home console? If you said the $250 Nintendo Wii, you'd be wrong – it's actually the $200 Xbox 360 Arcade, which eschews the hard drive, headset and premium cables of its Pro cousin to shed a full $100 off of the regular price.

But though the entry-level 80GB PlayStation 3 usually clocks in at nearly twice that last price – with "no plans" for a March price cut – a new Sony offer will put the PS3 in a very close third-place finish with its rivals. If you're willing and able to sign up for the new Sony PlayStation credit card, you can get a PS3 shipped to your door for exactly $284.

While I would not advocate credit even if the US financial market wasn't currently in death throes due to its mismanagement (I avoid credit cards as a matter of principle) for those who don't feel similarly bound this actually appears to be a pretty good deal.

There's no annual fee, the standard APR is 11% variable, and there don't appear to be any unusually nasty penalties –...
 

Nintendo of Australia out to Catch Nintendo DS Pirates

50°
308w ago - Just before the holiday season, Nintendo of Australia is cracking down on NDS gaming pirates.

The hand-held Nintendo DS is expected to be one of the biggest-selling toys this Christmas, with company officials predicting sales of 750,000 by the end of the year.

But with legitimate game cards costing up to $70, there are reports of a boom in parents buying pirated gaming software that allows users to play games that have been illegally downloaded from the Internet.

Greg Arthurton, director of marketing at Nintendo, said the company was taking steps to protect its intellectual property.

The company has sent cease and desist letters to backyard operators in Australia who are selling equipment that allows users to play pirated games.
