5d ago - 2K Games Senior Community Manager Ronnie Singh posted up a video today showcasing NBA 2K14 as part of their PS4 Developer Diary dubbed MyCAREER on PlayStation 4.
To quote: MyCAREER has been one of NBA 2K14's most-played modes. The question is, with the next generation of technology, how do we create a fresh experience beyond playing games on the court? Creating a new cinematic experience that rivals a Hollywood film - that's how!
With over 300 pages of script, MyCAREER on PS4 takes you on an emotional journey like you've never experienced before. Our goal was to place you IN the game. From competing on the court, to decisions you make off the court, the experience has been expanded in an immersive journey through next gen technology.
For example, early on you may not get the minutes you want as a rookie. As your team calls a timeout, you have a decision to make - remain sitting or get up and celebrate with your teammates. Each decision affects the way you are viewed both from your team's viewpoint and the way fans look at you. This is just one of many deep decisions you make, with your actions opening up hours and hours of completely new content both on and off the court.

To quote: Since a long time ago, some users have requested me to write a tutorial so they could create their own Showtime plugins. This is an initial attempt to it, I hope you like. If I make some mistake, I'm sorry, I'm not a teacher.
3w ago - Many are aware Sony's PlayStation 4 video gaming console uses FreeBSD Open Source Software as outlined on Sony's site HERE, and today Software Engineer Don Olmstead briefly discusses WebGL / HTML5 and the PS4 while PS3 hacker kakarotoks confirms PS4 is running Webkit alongside preliminary PS4 Save Encryption from flynhigh09 as detailed below.
From Don Olmstead, to quote: "Now that the #PS4 has been released I can finally start talking about my piece of the puzzle.
When you login to your PS4 you are running #WebGL code. The PlayStation Store, the Music and Video Applications, as well as a good chunk of UX are all rendered within the browser.
I spent a good amount of time tuning our WebGL rendering engine, and I will be speaking at +SFHTML5 about how to optimize WebGL usage within the context of that work. There will be plenty of great tips on how you can speed up your own WebGL applications so get your slot now. And for those of you can't make it in person it will be live streamed on Google Developers Live."
