Video: Experience More Together: Introducing the PS Plus TV Spot

50°
22w ago - Sony PlayStation Brand Marketing Senior Vice President Guy Longworth shared a video today inviting fans to experience more together and officially introducing the PS Plus TV Spot.

To quote: It's hard to believe that PlayStation Plus is nearly four years old. Since its launch, we've continued to add benefits, including our wildly popular Instant Game Collection, deep game discounts, cloud storage and online multiplayer on PS4.

We've continued to up the ante with recent Instant Game Collection offerings such as Game of the Year nominee BioShock Infinite, PS3 action epic DmC, headspinning PS Vita adventure Gravity Rush, and most recently, PS4 favorites Resogun and Outlast.

Today, I'm delighted to show you our very first TV spot for PS Plus, which debuts this week and celebrates the fact that with PS Plus you can experience more together.





I hope you enjoy it and thanks to you all for your amazing support.

Video: Rocksmith 2014 Edition: An All-New, Inclusive Experience

200°
39w ago - Ubisoft Senior Community Developer Mike Madavi shared a video introducing an all-new, inclusive video gaming experience dubbed Rocksmith 2014 Edition.

To quote: Rocksmith 2014 Edition is finally out today! Since we announced it at this year's E3 Conference in June, we've seen an outpouring of excitement, questions, and speculation from old fans, as well as those just hearing about Rocksmith for the first time.

Everyone wants to know what's been updated, fixed, and improved upon - all valid questions with a simple answer: Rocksmith 2014 Edition is a full-fledged sequel that has been built from the frame up to be the best, most fun, and fastest way to learn guitar or bass!

Even though the game was announced in June, our Development team at Studio SF in Ubisoft's San Francisco office has been hard at work on Rocksmith 2014 Edition for two years. The process was long, but ultimately worth it as the team took a hard look at the original Rocksmith and decidedly improved on every existing feature while dreaming up innovative new ones. In the words of Paul Cross, our Creative Director, "We set out immediately to do something different."

The entire format has been reduced to the core functionalities and experiences users want out of playing guitar - a simple menu with clear options,...
 

CCP Games Outlines Dust 514 on PS3: The New Player Experience

50°
42w ago - CCP Games developer CCP Greyscale outlined what he calls the New Player Experience in Dust 514 on the PS3 entertainment system today.

To quote: Greetings, Mercenaries. Our motivation for the release of Uprising 1.5 was to do whatever we felt necessary to improve the chances of new players making it past Day One of playing DUST 514.

The first step was to consider what sort of players we were aiming at, and decide which teaching approach to take.

Our target audience is, for the most part, gamers who are familiar with other console first-person shooters and want to try something a little more interesting. This led us to focus primarily on teaching the differences between DUST and other FPS games, rather than trying to teach people, for example, what a gun is and how to move around.

To accomplish this, we considered two major approaches: instruction-driven and objective-driven. An instruction-driven approach ensures that players are clearly shown what to do at each point along the way.

Commonly this means highlighting every interaction, locking out everything else, and ensuring that every single step is explained.

An objective-driven approach, by contrast, tends towards giving players goals to complete, and telling them just enough to let them figure...
 

Video: Assassin's Creed IV on PS4: A Truly Next-Gen Experience

45w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani posted up a video today showcasing Assassin's Creed IV on PS4, proclaiming it is a truly next-gen experience on PlayStation 4.

To quote: A lot of people have asked us what kinds of technical advancements can be expected from Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on PS4, so we asked Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier to give us a couple of examples...

He went a little nuts, and delivered an entire video detailing a ton of improvements.

CAUTION: Things are about to get a little techy, so put on your coder hats!

Some of the highlights include our use of real Beaufort scale waves for a realistic ocean and the new sea engine, which follows real world physics. Complex shaders work to give the ocean that translucent appearance.





Each raindrop is an individually lit object, puddles accurately mirror the world around them and volumetric fog accepts and reflects light from different sources. Dynamic Navmeshes (three dimensional objects you can run around on) ensure that you can jump from one ship to another without encountering weird collision issues, and can seamlessly interact between two ships involved in a boarding action.

We can use the...
