6w ago - Polytron Producer Marie-Christine Bourdua announced today that FEZ turns heads on PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita on March 25th, 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: This is it. We've come to the end of development, and Fez is finally coming to PlayStation on March 25th!

It's been an incredible adventure, and we couldn't have made it without the amazing work of BlitWorks and the support of Sony's team. In the name of all of us at Polytron, thank you so much!

People have been asking for a PS3 version of Fez since day one, and we believe it was worth the wait. Blit took the time to make a solid C++ port of the game, which runs smoothly at native resolution on PS Vita, and 720p at 60 frames per second on PS3.

The PS4 version is what we consider to be the best-looking and smoothest Fez experience you can get on a TV set, running at beautiful 1080p (and yes, 60fps too). You wouldn't think that upping the resolution would make a big difference in a game like ours, where the pixels are the size of Gomez's fist... but it really does look even crisper and blockier - in a good way.

No one's going to blame you for digging around, but you won't find many big changes in these versions of the game. However, there are a few surprises... especially...

Rumor: PS1 / PS2 Games Heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via Emulation

11w ago - Today Eurogamer (linked above) reports on rumors of PS1 / PS2 games heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via emulation with details below.

To quote: Backwards compatibility is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Now is only part of the story. A well-placed source working with Sony's streaming service reveals that only PlayStation 3 titles are currently scheduled to use the "gameplay over IP" cloud service. PS1 and PS2 titles are set to follow the more conventional route of running locally under emulation on Sony's latest console - but with the possibility of HD visual enhancements.

While Sony effectively phased out hardware emulation of previous platforms during the early stages of the PS3 era, it has worked consistently on opening up the PlayStation back catalogue to publishers via software emulation and PSN downloads.

Internally, PlayStation 3's firmware contains emulators for PS1, PS2 and even the handheld PSP, while Vita is capable of running PS1 and Vita titles virtually flawlessly using the same technology. In short, there's a proven codebase that can only get better for the vastly more powerful PS4.

Our information suggests that the same internal emulator strategy is planned for PlayStation 4, and we understand that Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to...

21w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli shared a Neil Druckmann PBS interview video today for The Last of Us below.

To quote: Our first-ever single player DLC, The Last of Us: Left Behind, was unveiled last week in New York during the PS4 launch event. If you haven't seen the teaser, check it out now. There are some cool hints as to what kind of gameplay you'll be seeing in the video.

The Last of Us: Left Behind is one element of our $19.99 Season Pass. We wanted the Season Pass to be all-inclusive and a great value. The first piece of DLC for the Season Pass was our Abandoned Territories Map Pack. The Abandoned Territories Map Pack released in October and it's a blast, with four brand new maps for the Factions multiplayer in The Last of Us.

In addition to our behind-the-scenes documentary, Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us, we added over 60 multiplayer head items to the Season Pass. The Country Flag Hats and Nightmare...
