3d ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty announced today that the IGN PlayStation application is out today on PS4.
Below are the details, to quote: Greetings once again, PlayStation.Blog! My name's Colin, IGN's Senior Editor.
You may have seen me skulking around IGN PlayStation and making terrible predictions on Podcast Beyond, but today, I'm not here to make any pizza bets with you. No, I'm here to tell you about something exciting we've cooked up for PS4 owners.
IGN for PlayStation, our new app for PS4, is available today, and I'm pleased to tell you that you can download it for yourself - free of charge - when PlayStation Store updates. The app is currently exclusive to PS4, and will come to PS3 and PS Vita next year.
How does this benefit you, exactly? IGN's PS4 app will make you more popular with your friends, give you more energy, and even make the food you eat taste better (that's not true). But more importantly, our PS4 app will give you direct access to all of IGN's video content, letting you create custom playlists, while finding and consuming the exact content you're seeking.
What's truly cool about the app, however, is how granular you can get with it. You can rapidly come in and out of full-screen view, minimize a video...
1w ago - XGen Studios CEO and Founder Skye Boyes shared details today on how to earn a PS4 Fortune in Super Motherload on PlayStation 4.
To quote: Hello, fellow miners! In case you missed the news, PS3 owners can now get their hands on Super Motherload and dig up some Martian gems with their friends.
In the wake of the PS3 launch, and to treat our players on PS4, today's post is all about tips and tricks - helping you to maximize your mining (and edging out the "friendly" competition). Follow these tips and you'll have your gold Trophies in no time!
Faster, Stronger: Dig straight shafts down to expedite returning to the surface. It's often worth the cost of bombs to ensure a better tunnel for speedy, collision-free travel.
Efficiency = Much Better: Fuel consumption is highest when digging and flying. Refrain from revving the engine when descending and stay still while figuring out puzzles to conserve fuel.
Make a Small Fortune: Consider your actions carefully when solving puzzles. A careless blast can render the reward irretrievable and result in bomber's remorse.
Be More Cautious This Time, Comrade: C4 destroys a 5X5 area, TNT destroys 3X3, and Shaft Bombs destroy 1X9. This can can mean the difference between grabbing valuable...
4w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Need for Speed Rivals for PlayStation 4 with details below.
To quote: When the idyllic forests and glittering coasts of Redview County are screaming by your window, there's precious little time to appreciate online functionality like Alldrive. Which, in a way, suggests how well it's been implemented in the blazing-fast Need for Speed Rivals.
From the newly minted Ghost Games in Gothenburg, Sweden, Rivals launches alongside PS4 on November 15th. It puts players firmly behind the wheel of either a cop or racer in a massive network of roads, laced through boiling desert and rainy hills.
Rivals made an impressive appearance at the PS4 launch event here in New York City, with a live demonstration of the Alldrive multiplayer functionality, and even a few perilous night races using PS Vita Remote Play.
With DualShock 4 in hand, I dropped into Redview - which was heavily inspired by the California coast - where several players were already burning through the map. Ghost Games' Founder Marcus Nilsson was at my side as a fellow cop.
No pressure. Pulling up alongside his beautiful patrol car, he started a pursuit event. One touch of L1 and we were in the event together, chasing after a group of racers...
5w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared details today on cleaning up with Dustforce for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.
To quote: Sprint, leap, and clean towards victory. Dustforce celebrates precision platforming, and embraces its 2D roots by spritzing the whole experience with colorful characters and a grooving anime twist. In Dustforce, players gun for the best time and most complete run through more than 50 stages.
Originally developed by a small indie team for the PC crowd, Capcom is bringing Dustforce to PS3 and PS Vita. All the charm and addictive play of the PC version returns, along with online multiplayer (ranked and private), shiny Trophies, and cross save support. Now the PlayStation community can train to become the greatest of ninja janitors the world has ever known.
The Capcom crew brought Dustforce by for Justin and me to play. Listen to our interview with them below, then read on for our full impressions.
Dustforce gives players room to breathe. At the start, stages are short, simple, and teach newcomers how to successfully navigate obstacles and clean up the most dust to achieve high scores. Jumps are cozy, and the levels themselves are designed to pull the player into a flow.
One run through a stage reveals the layout and enemy placement,...

To quote: The wait for a next-gen games is getting unbearable! And our team at Ghost Games has been pushing themselves to be a part of PlayStation's big launch day. We're excited to announce today that Need for Speed Rivals will be a launch title for PS4 in North America on November 15th.

Even as we play Need for Speed Rivals, we can never be sure what'll happen next. Just recently in a Pursuit race, one of the racers dropped a stun mine at the bottom of a jump - another car landed right on top, wiped out, spun out of control, finally...
