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

350°
20w 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."


 

Entwined: Introspective Look Back at Pixelopus Emotional PS4 Debut

50°
23w ago - Pixelopus Creative Director Dominic Robilliard shared an introspective look back at the emotional debut of Entwined alongside a PS4 video trailer below today.

To quote: Hi there! Dom here again. It's been a whirlwind since Entwined was announced and released onstage during the PlayStation E3 2014 press conference and we've been overwhelmed with the amazing response to the game.

If you haven't seen Entwined yet, it's a vibrant, abstract action/arcade game about two souls who are in love but can't be together.

These souls are represented by a bird and a fish, which you must learn to control simultaneously. Our team is as unique as the premise, so Jeff and I thought it would be great to hear straight from the rest of Pixelopus about what was involved in making Entwined.





Prototype: Eric Zhang (Engineer)

At the very beginning when Pixelopus was formed, we had a period of time for full group brainstorm sessions, where we tried to find innovative fun game ideas that were relatively small in scale yet could fit our team's size. We took a lot of inspiration from our time in school, at Carnegie Mellon and San Jose State, where we would rapidly prototype as a part of our curriculum.
