5d ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman posted up some new videos today announcing that Soul Sacrifice Delta, Freedom Wars and Oreshika are confirmed for North America territories with details below!

To quote: Today we're really happy to announce a trio of brand new PS Vita games from our JAPAN Studio: Soul Sacrifice Delta, an expanded edition of last year's acclaimed dark fantasy adventure; dystopian action RPG Freedom Wars; and stunning JRPG Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines.

Soul Sacrifice Delta will be first to arrive on May 13th, and we'll confirm more details around Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines and Freedom Wars in the coming months. For now, I'll hand over to the games' respective producers to tell you more about each title. And then later today look out for an interview with JAPAN Studio chief Allan Becker.

Soul Sacrifice Delta

Soul Sacrifice Delta is the ultimate edition of Soul Sacrifice with tons of new content and improvements. Grim, the faction who believes in neutrality in all things, joins the blood thirsty Avalon and the merciful Sanctuary, and adds a third angle to bring the Delta in Soul Sacrifice. Grim's beliefs, rooted in the prophecy they will seek to realise, will bring about irrevocable changes to the world as we know it.



 

Video: There Came an Echo: Voice-controlled Strategy on PS4

1w ago - Iridium Studios Lead Designer Jason Wishnov shared a video today spotlighting There Came an Echo, a voice-controlled strategy game on PS4.

To quote: Hey, PlayStation fans! Quick backstory: we were making this game, and market research showed us that people who own PS4s like games.

After extensive trend analysis and writing numbers down on paper in the hopes of making it look like we knew basic mathematics, we made the executive decision to bring our title, There Came an Echo, over to the Sony side of town. There's a trailer above, which you should probably watch, but if you didn't, it's okay, we're cool.

There Came an Echo is, if you'll pardon the torrent of hyphens, a voice-controlled squad-based real-time strategy game. You don't play directly as the soldiers in the field, but rather as the tactical commander, issuing strategic orders via headset.

Ever felt annoyed when someone in your earpiece told you what to do in a blockbuster, AAA first-person shooter? Well, now, you're the someone in the earpiece. Some direct influences on the game include X-COM: Enemy Unknown and Tom Clancy's EndWar.





A lot of you might feel a little antsy about voice recognition. And we understand! But we'd...
 

Q&A: PS4 By the Numbers with Sony Vice President John Koller

9w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a PlayStation 4 Q&A today dubbed PS4 By the Numbers with Vice President John Koller below.

To quote: Though the slimmer, lighter PS Vita - and its upcoming North American release - was squarely in the spotlight of this week's PlayStation Showcase, PS4 wasn't left behind. Today, I caught up with Sony Computer Entertainment America Marketing Vice President John Koller for a status check on PS4's global rollout - an especially relevant topic, with the Japanese PS4 debut less than two weeks away.

PlayStation.Blog: Can you share any updates on PS4's global sell-through?

John Koller: The response has been fantastic. In the US, PS4 was #1 in sales for next-gen consoles in January, nearly doubling the nearest next-gen competitor. And PS4 remains the cumulative leader here based on today's report from the NPD Group.

Globally, we announced last month that we've sold through more than 4.2 million units as of the holiday season, making PS4's launch the biggest in console gaming history. I think the PS4 demand is indicative of how we've tapped into something special - and that's that gamers want to be recognized for their greatness and want to enjoy experiences together.

We're looking forward to what 2014 has...

10w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced that Ethan: Meteor Hunter is headed for PS Vita, complete with a PS3 demo and price cut with details below.

To quote: Hey guys! You've asked for it, and it's happening! I'm happy to announce that Ethan: Meteor Hunter, often described as "when Super Meat Boy meets Braid" and released in October on PlayStation 3 and PC, will arrive on PlayStation Vita very soon!

We will announce a definitive release date soon, but expect it this spring!

Can't remember what Ethan: Meteor Hunter is about? Let me refresh your memory. You can freeze time and manipulate the world with dynamic use of physics allowing endless possibilities: overcome challenging platforms and tricky puzzles the way YOU want.

Nothing is scripted, levels can be solved in multiple ways. You'll die repeatedly but you'll enjoy it - master the one-hit kill gameplay and feel like a hero when you succeed!

The game features leaderboards (shared between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita), 50 levels within three different worlds, secret bonuses and challenging trophies!

You will also be able to use the touch screen as it just made sense with the freeze-time feature to move objects around.

And you can use the Rear Touch Pad to rotate objects...
