21w 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: OlliOlli for PlayStation Vita Drops in on January 21st, 2014

50w ago - Roll7 Director Tom Hegarty posted up a video today announcing that OlliOlli for PlayStation Vita drops in on January 21st, 2014.

To quote: We've finally finished OlliOlli, and what's even better, we now have a release date: January 21st!

As you may know, this our first PS Vita game, so it's been a big challenge for us - a challenge that's been well worth it (and we hope you'll think so, too). We originally planned to launch before the holiday, but due to some technical issues we had to push back.

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who patiently supported us throughout 2013, including fans, press, and all the crew at PlayStation - especially Shahid and Spencer.

Now that we're on the path to releasing OlliOlli into the wild, it seems pertinent to give you the final details about all four modes and the game's Trophies (in case you didn't see them when they accidentally leaked last month)!

Career Mode: 50 deviously handcrafted levels split between Amateur and Pro. The further you progress, the more accuracy and timing you'll need to reach the adoring crowd at the end of each run.

Each level has five challenges, including Combo and Score attacks, and is linked to its own global leaderboard. Think you can get that number one spot?...
 

Video: Foosball 2012 Drops on PlayStation Network Today

50°
126w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has announced that Foosball 2012 drops on PlayStation Network today and has shared the official launch trailer below.

To quote: Jakub from Grip Games here! Today is a great day for our small indie studio - Foosball 2012 is out today on PSN! I'm stopping by today to answer a few questions about the game.

Foosball 2012 is another entry in the line of not-so-typical-for-a-console-game sports, like darts, bowling, pool, or golf that we have seen recently on the PlayStation Store. If you weren't sure which platform to get the game on, we think you'll appreciate that when you buy the game for PS3, you'll get the PS Vita version for free and the other way around!

A lot of people ask us "Why foosball?" and we keep telling them "Why not?" Other games that wouldn't seem to be well-suited to a console experience managed to capture the essence of those games, and we hope to do the same with Foosball 2012.

It is not just about playing foosball, it's about playing a quick, skill-based game, that is easy to handle, but difficult to master. A game with a great multiplayer component and entertaining single-player mode, lots of customizations and Leaderboards to keep track of where you and your friends are standing against the global competition.
