Video: Drawn to Death, Hand-Drawn Arena Shooter Coming to PS4

50°
2w ago - Video Game Designer / Director David Jaffe made available a PS4 video trailer video today announcing that Drawn to Death, a hand-drawn arena shooter, is coming to PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hey y'all! David Jaffe here, game director at The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency.

Today's a big, big day for all of us at our little game making and ghost hunting studio.

As for the ghost hunting team, Bartlet and crew have made some big discoveries in the whole Al Capone opera house haunting. Keep an eye out for an update that should be hitting your favorite ghost hunting site soon (and perhaps major news sites as well if what Bartlet thinks they've found ends up being authenticated!)

As for the game making part of the company, today is the day we're finally able to reveal DRAWN TO DEATH, the game we've been making with the fantastic crew at Sony San Diego!

And if I may, before I jump into details, I gotta say: MAN it feels great to be back with my Sony family!!!

I remember sitting in Scott Rhode's office 18 months ago, pitching him the game and trying to be cool and pro and not express my excitement when it started to become clear that Scott was going to give Drawn To Death the go ahead and that PlayStation 4 would be the home of the studio's first...
 

Wattam PS4: From Katamari Damacy Creator Keita Takahashi

50°
2w ago - Funomena Co-founder Robin Hunicke officially introduced Wattam PS4 from Katamari Damacy Creator Keita Takahashi today alongside a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: Hi! This is Keita and Robin here to share with you this first glimpse of our new project at Funomena. When we told people that we had begun to collaborate on a new game, they were very curious about what it could be. It is called "Wattam".

The idea for this game came from when Keita was playing with his two-year old son, and wondered about what if all toys lived, and connected by themselves? It would be such a fun world to explore and play with!

The word "Wattam" itself is actually composed of the Tamil and Japanese words for "making a circle" or "making a loop". The initial prototype for this game was made by Keita and his friend Vikram, who are from these two cultures respectively, and this new word acknowledges one of the game's core inspirations: making connections between different types of things.





But what you'll see here today is actually about a square-shaped person. It is a sneak peek into the life of the Mayor of the world of Wattam. We hope you enjoy meeting him, and the other characters of Wattam, as we reveal...
 

Video: Inside the Creation of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell's Music

2w ago - Creative Director Steve Jaros posted up a PS4 video today taking an inside look at the creation of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell's music on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Music has always been an important part of the Saints Row franchise:

• Saints Row was inspired by over-the-top hip-hop music videos.
• Saints Row 2 introduced sing alongs.
• Saints Row: The Third showcased the sing alongs as a bonding moment between characters, as well as key licensed tracks to enhance emotion.
• Saints Row IV added dance into the mix (originally we wanted to end with a Bollywood dance number but scope reduction transformed it into the soul train line).
• How The Saints Save Christmas ends with a Christmas montage (originally set to "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey).

So when we decided that Gat out of Hell was going to be Saints Row's take on a Disney-esque fairy tale, we knew pretty early on that a musical number was essential to the experience.





This was exciting to me for two reasons: First, the introduction of a musical number wasn't going to be just some gag, it (like all musicals) was going to convey central plot points and character motivation just like any cutscene.

PlayStation Store Gets Discount Code Feature for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

100°
5w ago - Following today's scheduled PSN maintenance update, users have now confirmed that Sony's PlayStation Store now offers a Discount Code feature for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: "After today's PSN maintenance, which incidentally ended early, the PlayStation Store got an interesting addition: a field for "10-digit discount code" has been added to the cart on the web and mobile storefronts.

This feature is normally present in most online stores, with codes distributed as part of promotions, as purchase incentives or simply as bonuses to previous orders, but it wasn't supported by the PlayStation Store before.

At the moment we don't know how extensively the feature will be used or when the codes will start appearing in the wild, but considering that we're approaching the Holiday Season, it's definitely promising."
