4w ago - Senior Creative Director DCUO Jens Andersen is here with answers to some PS4 fan questions on DC Universe Online for PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: Hello, everyone. My name is Jens Andersen, aka @Spytle, and I'm the Senior Creative Director on DC Universe Online. When PlayStation first put a callout for DCUO PS4 questions on Twitter, I was excited to see them roll in; it was hard to keep myself from answering them right away, but I managed to restrain myself.
Thanks to everyone that submitted questions - it's great to see so much interest in DC Universe Online on PS4. I'm excited to finally start answering them, so without further adieu, let's get started.
@Arkham_InmateJH: What exactly is changing with DC Universe Online? (source)
Jens Andersen: There are a ton of things changing in DCUO right around the time of the PS4 launch - many of these will be available on all platforms.
First of all, players will see the amazing power of PS4 popping off the screen thanks to the art enhancements we made to the PS3 assets. The game looks and runs amazingly smooth - performance has really improved. We're targeting 1080p at 60 frames per second.

This top-down action game requires careful planning to execute the perfect take-downs. Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download Hotline Miami for free on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
There are also loads of spooky titles on sale as part of the Sale of the Dead, including recent sensation The Last of Us and other zombie favorites like Dead Island, Dead Nation, Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare and Telltale's The Walking Dead episodes.

7w ago - We've all heard of the dreaded PS3 YLOD (Yellow Light of Death) syndrome, but today a photo surfaced showing a demo PS4 console overheating and displaying what has been dubbed the Red Line of Death (PS4 RLOD) followed by Sony responding.
To quote: The picture was taken at a PS4 event in Spain and posted by Elotrolado member Homer J. Simpson in his report (via elotrolado.net/hilo_playstation-4_1864860_s36130#p1733944694) of the event. Here are his complete updated comments (roughly translated from Spanish):
“In terms of sound, practically none, you can hear the fan if you listened closely but nothing exaggerated. they had ventilated consoles and others put in enclosures completely closed that were running from 9am without stopping (we got there at 18:00 in the evening). they were running fine and were quite warm on the surface but nothing like our current generation consoles.
The only exception to that was one console that was completely enclosed in an acrylic case, it was showing a red light (where there would typically be a blue light) and there...
