11w ago - Frogwares' Olga Ryzhko announced today that Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is coming to PS3 and PS4 platforms with both details and video footage below.

To quote: This is Olga from Frogwares, and I get to tell you about our latest game, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments.

We've been developing Sherlock Holmes games for over a decade now, and the recent reinventions of Sherlock Holmes in the new movies and series have put a spin on the character and the world he lives in.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments is a detective game; it needs you to think. The game focuses heavily on investigation, and with an emphasis on narration, too.

There's a lot of exploration and clue collecting, speaking to witnesses and suspects, and - the most important aspect - bringing all of these together to make your own deductions and bring the culprits to justice... or setting them free.





With this new Sherlock Holmes game, we really wanted to involve the player to a degree that they've never experienced before, both emotionally and intellectually.

In Crimes & Punishments, your brain will be, once more, put to the test. This time we're offering...

17w ago - Sony Game Director Mark Cerny shared details on unlockable characters and challenge modes in Knack on PS4 below today.

To quote: Knack launched alongside PS4 in every territory, and now that there's been some time for the players to get up to speed on our game, I wanted to talk a bit more about the unlockable features waiting within.

As you probably know, there are hidden treasure chests in secret rooms scattered throughout the story which contain random items.

Some of those items are parts of gadgets that will help Knack in his quest; however the treasure chests also contain more exotic items called Crystal Relics.

There are six different types of Crystal Relics, and if you collect enough of one type, you can unlock a special Knack that can be used when replaying the game, or in one of the challenge modes that you unlock upon beating the game.

For example, collecting 15 Ruby Relics unlocks Vampire Knack, who has stronger attacks, but also a weakness - he's slowly melting, Parts drop off his body and he loses health as he fights. He can replenish that health by defeating enemies, so in a sense he's sucking their energy into himself!

So as soon as you collect the required 15 Ruby Relics, you can start the game from the beginning, playing this time...

Below are the details, to quote: PS4 released in North America on November 15th, and it was wonderful to see the response! We sold over a million units in the first day, which set a record for any console in the PlayStation family.

Knack released alongside PS4, which was also very nice and a culmination of a lot of hard work! We're excited to have the game out in the wild, so to speak. Now that it's out there, we wanted to take a little time to explain how having friends on PlayStation Network can enhance the game by boosting the number of gadgets you can collect.

There are over sixty secret rooms in Knack, and contained within these rooms are treasure chests - when Knack opens a chest, a random item pops out. Most of these items are parts of gadgets that will help Knack in his quest.

There are eight gadgets in all, and they vary greatly in their difficulty to construct. Simpler gadgets are made of three parts, and the tougher gadgets are made of up to seven parts.

However, you have help! If any of your friends have found this same secret room, you can see the item that they found there. If you'd prefer the item that a friend found - perhaps it's...
