8w ago - Creative Director Nathan Gary of External Development at Santa Monica Studio announced today alongside a video trailer that Flower, flOw, Sound Shapes and Escape Plan are coming to PS4.
To quote: Hey, this is Nathan Gary over at Sony Santa Monica with some great news for PlayStation fans. For years, the team here at Santa Monica Studio has been pushing the boundaries of gaming with small, innovative games.
Now, some of our best titles are making the jump to new PlayStation platforms - including PS4.
As you may have heard, thatgamecompany's Flower is coming to PS Vita. Today I am happy to officially announce that it is also coming to PS4 and that both versions will launch on November 15th. Now this beautiful, meditative game can be experienced at 1080p and 60fps.
I'm also excited to tell you that Sound Shapes, the ground-breaking musical platformer from Queasy Games, will also be joining Flower in the PS4 launch line-up on November 15th.
Flower isn't the only thatgamecompany title making its way to new places. We are also bringing flOw to PS Vita and PS4. This is the first game TGC released - the one that started it all. It will release for both PS4 and PS Vita on November 29th.
To quote and from the PS3 NFO File: Thanks to bubba we are able to release the full source code of PS3Flow aka PuneFlow, a tool that is very similar to the famous WiiFlow. The source code is two years old and now it is up to you to make something nice out of it and release it asap!
Special thanks to GiantPune for building it. Awesome work! PS3Flow is like already like 90% complete. Find the download link attached below. On the download page you will find all the hints that are needed to get the final 10% done.
PuneFlow (PS3FLOW) goes Open Source!!!
(Two Years Ago) We had the Dream to bring PS3Flow to the Ps3. It will Flow. Bubba went out and got a great coder from the Wii scene.. that was Giantpune!!! Then I added another coder from Wiiflow (MXXXXX)...
Then we sent them two PS3 systems to build it... Too bad MXXXXX didnt do sht and pissed off Giantpune....
53w ago - Following up on the previous Nintendo Wii U hacking news, today console hacker and mod-chip developer Marcan42 of fail0verflow has shared a Wii U teaser video via 0xf0f on YouTube demonstrating The Homebrew Channel below.
To quote: "We finally have a YouTube channel and we thought we'd kick things off with a little teaser:
Keep in mind that this is purely a demonstration at this stage. Depending on how things progress and what direction development takes, we may or may not release something like this in this form. Please don't ask for release dates. We'd rather spend time investigating the new system than putting together a release that may or may not end up being the Right Way to do things in the future.
Please ignore the blue blinks. The monitor kind of sucks at syncing to component video sometimes. I would've used HDMI, but the Wii U cannot output analog audio simultaneously with HDMI (at least not for the Wii U menu part), and I cannot capture HDMI audio."
On the Wii U specs, Marcan Tweeted the following:...
58w ago - Today Spanish PS3 homebrew developer Estwald has updated the COSPKG and COSUnPKG PlayStation 3 CORE OS PS3Tools originally released by Sven Peter of Fail0verflow attempting to fix some of the prevailing bugs.
Below is a rough translation, as follows with a better one HERE courtesy of daveribz: Hello, when the team fail0verflow published his tools, it was clear that not all were functional, or lack of certain bugs. Waninkoko had the "honor" to check in their own flesh (unfortunately) when your CFW few bricks caused due to incorrect operation of certain tools.
Recently brought new CFW that apparently have the same problem when composing the CORE OS package (and at least I could check in on Rogero cospkg being used...
61w ago - The Game Atelier Lead Designer Dr Lakav has shared a fresh video trailer today announcing that SunFlowers will shine on PlayStation Vita this coming Tuesday for $3.99.
To quote: Good news, everyone: we have an official date for SunFlowers - next Tuesday, October 9th for $3.99!
SunFlowers is a brand new puzzle-shooter game for PS Vita, including two unique worlds: Classic and Tropical. Each world has more than 160 flowers to collect.
Now let's take a closer look at the second world from SunFlowers: Tropical. In this world you will discover new varieties of flowers, including pirate-themed blossoms, but every flower is still based on a real existing species.
When you play on this tropical island, you will quickly discover that the climate is very different from the Classic world, and the weather can be unpredictable. From the tropical rain flooding your flowers to the big sand dune that dries them out, you will need to be very careful if you want to keep them all alive.
There is even a dusk stage where every cloud and flower is backlit, so you'll need to hold your PS Vita close to a light source if you want to clearly see what is happening.
