Sony Announces Close Castles Coming to PS4, Play at PS Experience

50°
2w ago - Sony's Asher Vollmer announced that Close Castles is coming to PS4, and PlayStation 4 fans can play it at PS Experience!

To quote: I have a love/hate relationship with real time strategy games. I love them, but I hate playing them.

Let's face it: RTSes are miserable pain engines designed to give players the worst possible experience. They're kind of fun (though deeply stressful) right up until the first interaction with another player and then it's all downhill for the next forty-or-so minutes.

You play until someone gives up. They are lonely exercises in sadomasochism. Anyway hello. My name is Asher Vollmer and I intend to fix all that with my new game, Close Castles.

I made [Register or Login to view links] because I love small, minimalist games. Close Castles is no different. The games are incredibly quick: they average around three minutes each on the fastest game speed.

Buliding the game for a controller has inspired me to make the controls as simple as possible. You move your cursor around the field and press a button to build structures. What you build and where you build it will determine you and your opponent's collective fate.

The game is built for local multiplayer, so there's no hidden information. This means...

Rumor: Sony Close to Acquiring High-Profile Cloud Gaming Firm

800°
133w ago - Following up on our previous article, today MCVUK (linked above) reports that according to their sources Sony is indeed close to acquiring a high-profile cloud gaming firm.

To quote: "In a move that will rock the next generation of console gaming, Sony is close to agreeing an acquisition of a high profile cloud gaming firm, MCV understands.

It was reported earlier this week that Sony was to reveal a partnership with a cloud gaming firm - specifically either OnLive or Gaikai - at E3 next week.

Subsequent chatter had seemingly calmed the rumours, suggesting that the proposed agreement was to do with Sony streaming TV services, and not consoles.

However, MCV understands that the deal is far more extensive than anyone could have predicted and will see Sony fully acquire one of the two firms. The deal, our source says, "is close to being signed".

The acquisition has implications for all parts of Sony's business, both in the consumer tech and console divisions.

Although work on PS4 is already well underway, Sony is very likely keen on bringing its PlayStation gaming content to non-console owners - a move finally made possible...

156w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has announced today alongside some new [Register or Login to view links] that the Starhawk Private PS3 Beta is slated to close on January 3, 2012.

To quote: As of Tuesday, January 3rd, the lights will go down on the Starhawk Private Beta.

It's been a wild, wild ride and we want to thank ALL the participants that took time out of their schedule to help us test Starhawk. We've learned an enormous amount and have applied much of it already.

We've still got a long way to go but the leg up this info has provided us is incredibly valuable. The Private Beta was our first step to try out the game in the wild and it's been simply awesome.

And because of this success, we've decided to keep the Private Beta live through the holiday break. After all, what would ringing in 2012 be without a little Starhawk beatdown session?!!

So what's next? Why, the Public Beta, of course! In the next few weeks we'll be announcing the dates for this important step.

Many more players will be allowed access, including the UNCHARTED 3 owners who received a Public Beta voucher when they purchased the game! Look for more information and specifics very soon.
