50°
18w ago - Sony Vice President, Developer and Publisher Relations guru Adam Boyes shared a roundup summary today of 12 new Indies coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita complete with videos below!

To quote: Hello PlayStation fans! We held an awesome event at our offices yesterday, and in case you missed some of our new game announcements I wanted to round them up for you below. Also note that all of these titles will be making their console debut on PlayStation platforms.

Independent developers are continuing to create incredible games for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, and we can't wait to bring them to you throughout this year and beyond.

Apotheon (PS4)





"Looking back, making our upcoming action sidescroller Apotheon in the visage of ancient Greek pottery seemed like an obvious choice. Everything is already there.

The 2D perspective, the awesome narrative and setting possibilities, heroes fighting monsters and magical goat-men with no pants... All we really had to do was figure out how to make the art on those pots move around and make it into an interesting game."

Axiom Verge (PS4/PS Vita)

Videos: SHAREfactory: Sony Demos PlayStation 4's New Video Editor

50°
18w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared some PS4 video footage today demonstrating the PlayStation 4's new video editor below!

To quote: SHAREfactory is now available on PlayStation 4, alongside PS4 System Software Update v1.70.

A dead-simple rich video editor, SHAREfactory lets players capture gameplay clips (a process that's been streamlined as part of the v1.70 update) and add transitions, music, commentary, and more to turn their raw footage into full-fledged videos.

The PlayStation.Blog team - with painfully little knowledge of video editing - ventured blindly into this new app to see what we could come up with... and we think the results are pretty admirable given our lack of expertise! As it turns out, SHAREfactory is deceptively full featured, despite its instant accessibility.

Watch our videos below, then tell us whose is best. The editor who gets the most votes will forever bear the title of SCEA SHAREfactory Champion, and all privileges associated with it (I'm getting a belt made). Of course, we want to hear your arguments for each of our entries in the comments, as well.

First, I put together a tips guide for inFAMOUS...

18w ago - Infinity Ward Senior Community Manager Tina Palacios announced that a Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer PS4 and PS3 demo is coming this weekend!

Below are the details, to quote: Grab your friends and ready your trigger fingers - the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer demo is coming this weekend.

From May 2nd (10:00 AM Pacific) until Monday, May 5th (10:00 AM Pacific), gamers on both PS3 and PS4 will be able to download the demo and try out Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer for free.

Three popular multiplayer maps are included:

• Strikezone: Set in a baseball stadium in war-torn San Diego, this small map is ideal for close-quarters combat. Complete a field order for an opportunity to call in a KEM strike, which will transform the landscape of the entire map.

• Warhawk: Taking place in a small American town, this three-lane map caters to many different play styles. The main street can be a convenient rush route, but beware of enemy snipers in the buildings on both ends.

• Prison Break: Fight in the jungles on this map located outside of a prison. A large hill dominates the central portion of Prison Break, a crucial area for your team to hold in the fight for victory.

As part of this demo, you can try three fan-favorite multiplayer modes: Team...
 

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 PS3 Demo Out Today on PSN, Details

50°
29w ago - Konami Community Manager T.K. Shrodes shared details today on the new Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 PS3 demo that is out today on PSN below.

To quote: Want a taste of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2? Originally available only to owners of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD and the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection, the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 demo will be available for everyone today on PlayStation Store.

Download it today, and draw first blood against Dracula's many enemies in this demo, which highlights Gabriel at the height of his power.

Lash out with the Shadow Whip, a cruel remainder of Gabriel's once holy Combat Cross, or steal your enemies' very souls with the Void Sword. Employ my personal favorite, the Chaos Claws, to break down your foes' defenses and smash them into a very satisfying paste.

Dodge, jump and combo your way from Dracula's own throne room to an enormous assault against Dracula's castle, showing off differences in scale from the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the many additions to the Mercury Engine that make this title bigger, better, and just like Gabriel's turn... Darker.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is available on PS3 in North America starting February 25th. Stay tuned for a special deal for...
 

Video: PS Vita Dual Firmware Boot Proof-of-Concept Demo Arrives

400°
32w ago - Today Sony PlayStation Vita hacker Katsu released a VPS Vita Dual Firmware Boot Proof-of-Concept demo video with details below.

To quote: It didn’t take long for Yifan Lu’s investigations to become useful for other hardware hackers! Our community member katsu, guided by Yifan’s precise description of the Vita’s NAND pinouts, was able to hack his PS Vita in order to boot from a previous firmware, technically performing something very similar to a downgrade. Check the video below, it’s cool and full of “electronicsporn”, like your favorite cyberpunk movie.

What katsu did was dump his firmware 2.12 (on the NAND), probably using Yifan Lu’s technique. He then copied that Firmware dump to an SD card. In the meantime, he upgraded the PS Vita to firmware 3.01. On the video, you see him inserting his SD card in a reader connected to the Vita. The Vita then reads the content of the SD card (the firmware 2.12 he dumped earlier) instead of its own 3.01 NAND.

What the hell does all of that mean? First of all, that Yifan Lu’s little experiment in the hardware world is proving successful, by providing inspiration and documentation for other talented hardware modders.

Secondly, that downgrading a PS Vita is a possibility under certain...
