Rumored Sony E3 2014 Press Conference Details Leaked

50°
11w ago - Today some rumored Sony E3 ([Register or Login to view links]) 2014 Press Conference details were leaked by an anonymous source via DualShockers (linked above) which include Uncharted, The Order, Guerrilla, Media Molecule and more outlined below.

To quote: "We’re just a bit over a month to E3, and today a source that opted to remain anonymous contacted us to share what he alleges to be Sony Computer Entertainment’s plans for their press conference.

Our source mentioned that the information comes from contacts within Sony’s worldwide studios and a further contact at the BBH New York marketing firm, which works with Sony for part of its promotion.

The info reported below is awfully detailed, which is one of the reasons why we decided to publish it, but we were also able to confirm part of it with a second source. The double-sourced information is bolded, so while you should take everything with the customary grain of salt, the bolded parts stand on more solid ground than the rest.

• Uncharted PS4 3 Minute Trailer showcasing "In-engine" footage interspersed with gameplay segments. Visuals are supposedly unprecedented and set a benchmark for console graphics. Summer 2015 release date. It looks absolutely stellar. Features tropical...
 

Video: Leaked PlayStation Now Beta Shows UI, Games, Loading & More

350°
11w ago - Following up on the news of Private Beta Invites going out, today some leaked PlayStation Now Beta video footage surfaced which shows the UI, games, loading, a connection test and more below!

To quote from DualShockers (linked above): If you’re not in the PlayStation Now beta (or if you’re not American like me) but want to see what the service looks like, a reader that opted to remain anonymous sent us a real treat in the form of a full fledged video walkthrough of the current beta.

The video starts from the launch of the service and basically goes through everything there’s to see, doing a connection test, browsing the games catalog and even loading and playing a couple games (Puppeteer and Saints Row: The Third). Incidentally It’s also very well made (kudos to the author, really). If it wasn’t recorded off screen it could almost be mistaken for an official trailer.

You can check it out below, but remember that, as you can read at the bottom of the screen, what’s shown in this sneak peek is for testing purposes only, and is not indicative of the final service.



 

PlayStation Now Beta Game Loading Times Leaked, New Improvements

50°
14w ago - Some PlayStation Now Beta game loading times have been leaked from an anonymous participant and have since been compared to the previous phase of testing with details below.

To quote from DualShockers (linked above): "Back in February a reader that wished to remain anonymous sent us a list of the loading times of all the games that were available in the first phase of the beta of PlayStation Now.

The beta has now moved on to the second phase, with a whole lot of new games available and even some returning ones. The same reader took it upon himself to clock the loading times again using the same internet connection and shared them with us.

Like last time, each timing in the list below is from the launch of the game to the splash screen. We were provided a video as evidence, but we were asked not to publish it to protect the tipster’s identity (and account).

Between parenthesis you can also see the loading times of the returning games in the first phase of the beta, for comparison’s sake.

Current PlayStation Now Beta List:

  • Shadow of the Colossus - 46.72 (old time: 53.98)
  • WipeOut HD - 57.19
  • Dead Nation - 40.05
  • PixelJunk Monsters - 39.90
  • Shatter - 38.86 (old time: 39.77)
  • Guacamelee! –...

 

FIFA 11 Exploit Released for PS Vita Firmware 3.01, Leak Details

550°
24w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today hgoel0974 shared news of yet another PS Vita Firmware 3.01 exploit using FIFA 11 alongside another leak with details below.

To quote: Ok guys, you might want to hurry up and grab the game as Mathew_Wi has decided to release the exploit now as the game seems to have been leaked. This is quite disappointing actually because this is the second leak for this kernel exploit.

So, the game is Fifa 11 and it is available on the US and JP stores. Although Mathew hasn’t described where the leak happened, I’d like to send out a message to the leaker saying that he hasn’t helped anyone by leaking and instead he has not only ruined many of our plans (like my sleep ) but has also ruined it for all the people who were going through the ninja release the right way.

I’d like to point you and everyone else to the “Regarding ninja releases” thread just to remind you about how a ninja release works. Anyone who has ever wondered why we do ninja releases, it’s because leaks like this just ruin it for everyone.

On to the release, Mathew_Wi posted here on the forums about how annoyed he...
 

Sony PlayStation 4 Audio Processor (ACP) PS4 Details Surface

200°
43w ago - Following up on the previous PS4 updates, today details on the PlayStation 4 Audio Processor (ACP) have surfaced from Sony documention.

To quote (via VGLeaks.com, linked above): "Mark Cerny confirmed in an interview that PlayStation 4 uses hardware expressly dedicated to audio tasks. What are the capabilities of this hardware? What is Sony telling to developers about it?

Here we have some material from Sony’s presentations where you can learn more about audio custom hardware in PS4. This dedicated hardware will manage basic tasks, for game or system, relying on the CPU or GPU for advanced tasks.

Another important point is that this audio block is not programmable by developers directly, they could only access it via OS."

PS4 Audio Processor (ACP)

  • Custom Audio Block
  • Access mediated by OS
  • Not programmable by game teams
  • Performs encoding and decoding
  • Game: 200+ MP3 or equivalent streams
  • System: Encoding and decoding for voice chat, etc...
  • Filtering and effects performed by game code
  • Presumably CPU, but GPGPU is also a possibility
