Sony Cuts Costs of PS4 Hardware Production, Price Drop Coming?

350°
4w ago - Today Sony has made available a [Register or Login to view links] revealing that they have already managed to cut the costs of PS4 hardware production which leaves PlayStation 4 fans curious if a price drop will be coming soon.

To quote: "The cuts have allowed Sony to revise its financial expectations, increasing its projected FY2015 operating income for its Games & Network Services division from 20bn yen to 25bn yen.

"Sales are expected to be higher than the May forecast primarily due to the strong performance of the PS4," Sony said in its latest earnings report. "Operating income is expected to be higher than the May forecast primarily due to PS4 hardware cost reductions."

The reduced costs suggest Sony could be better placed to cut the price of PS4 at an earlier point in its life-cycle - or continue to reap improved profits from ongoing sales.

PS4 sales stood at 7 million in April although Sony has failed to provide an update since. PS3 and PS4 sold a combined 3.4m units between April-June 2014, however, of which the vast majority are expected to be PS4."


 

Video: Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut Arrives on PS4 / PlayStation 4

50°
20w ago - Born Ready Games Community Manager Jamin Smith posted up a video announcing that Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut arrives today on PS4 / PlayStation 4 consoles with details below.

To quote: Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is out today on PS4. Space combat has returned to consoles for the first time in what feels like millennia.

Strike Suit Zero was born out of a passion for space combat and the sad realisation that the genre was severely under-represented. As game developers, we had the opportunity to rectify that.

The Born Ready Games team grew up on a steady diet of Wing Commander, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, Freelancer, Freespace - all the classics from the 90′s heyday. We wanted to create a space dogfighter in the same vein, but with an updated look and feel that would make it relevant to today's audience.





The first thing we did was introduce a mech to the heart of the game. The Strike Suit - a fighter that can transform into a devastating suit of space armor at the touch of a button - eliminates issues with older games we refer to as "jousting" and "circle chasing."

The Strike Suit is quick and agile, allowing the player to turn 180 degrees quickly and take out any enemies that...
 

PlayStation Plus: Lone Survivor: Director's Cut Free for Members

50°
25w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced Lone Survivor: Director's Cut is free for PS Plus Members as part of this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates.

To quote: It's easy to look at Lone Survivor's art style and think it's not going to scare you, but this game is legitimately freaky. You'll take the role of a creeptastic guy attempting to survive in a city overrun by disease, which apparently turns you into a nasty walking ball of fleshy bits.

Given the scarcity of ammo, you'll likely be focused on hiding from the flesh monsters roaming the world versus conducting constant head-on assaults.

The story unfolds based on your choices throughout the game and there are multiple endings to discover as a result. The final bonus is that this title is Cross-Buy, so PlayStation Plus members will receive both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game.

The Spring Fever sale continues this week with day 1 discounts on Towerfall Ascension and Vessel. The franchise portion of the sale this week focuses on Call of Duty, so check out all of the discounted bundles below.

You can download Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 3/11.

Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut Coming to PlayStation 4 This Month

50°
25w ago - Born Ready Games Community Manager Jamin Smith announced today alongside a video trailer that Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is coming to PlayStation 4 this month.

To quote: Hullo, I'm Jamin Smith, Community Manager and writery person over at Born Ready Games. I'm here to announce that Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut will be heading to PS4 later this month. If mechs, space, and blowing things to smithereens with mechs (in space) are your thing, read on.

Strike Suit Zero is a space combat game that harkens back to the days of Wing Commander, Freelancer, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter – all the classics - but with a mech twist to the dogfighting, and a next-gen lick of paint. At the heart of our game is a ship that can transform from a traditional fighter to a lethal suit of space armor: the Strike Suit.

This really changes up the core concept of dogfighting, allowing pilots to transform, turn 180 degrees, and unleash a barrage of missiles without having to go through the laborious procedure of 'jousting' that older space combat titles relied on.





The Strike Suit was designed by Junji Okubo (Appleseed: Ex-Machina, Steel Battalion, Infinite Space), who has a very functional approach to mechanical design. As...

29w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced that Ethan: Meteor Hunter is headed for PS Vita, complete with a PS3 demo and price cut with details below.

To quote: Hey guys! You've asked for it, and it's happening! I'm happy to announce that Ethan: Meteor Hunter, often described as "when Super Meat Boy meets Braid" and released in October on PlayStation 3 and PC, will arrive on PlayStation Vita very soon!

We will announce a definitive release date soon, but expect it this spring!

Can't remember what Ethan: Meteor Hunter is about? Let me refresh your memory. You can freeze time and manipulate the world with dynamic use of physics allowing endless possibilities: overcome challenging platforms and tricky puzzles the way YOU want.

Nothing is scripted, levels can be solved in multiple ways. You'll die repeatedly but you'll enjoy it - master the one-hit kill gameplay and feel like a hero when you succeed!

The game features leaderboards (shared between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita), 50 levels within three different worlds, secret bonuses and challenging trophies!

You will also be able to use the touch screen as it just made sense with the freeze-time feature to move objects around.

And you can use the Rear Touch Pad to rotate objects...
