2w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman made available a video today while talking to Hideo Kojima about Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes on PS4.
To quote: Set after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker but before those of the upcoming MGS5: The Phantom Pain, MGS5: Ground Zeroes gives the player total control over how, where, and when to execute espionage-focused operations.
Playing as Snake, aka Big Boss, players will sneak into enemy encampments, stalk targets, interrogate enemy agents, and recover secret intel while piecing together the game's story mission by mission. The result is an open, fluid adventure that will play out a little differently each time.
On PS4, Kojima's proprietary FOX Engine coats the game in a convincing layer of next-gen grit. Eerily lifelike character animations bring new punch to the game's CQC, while a new global lighting system means that day and night pass realistically, complete with changes to guard behavior and visibility.
Engine brings a host of other benefits, including an upgraded weapon physics system that accounts for bullet drop. This will be a profound change for fans of the tranquilizer gun and other low-powered projectile weapons, which now require far more finesse to use at extreme distances.
3w ago - Konami Social Media Manager Dalton Link announced today alongside some video footage that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is getting a PlayStation-exclusive Deja Vu Mission.
To quote: Metal Gear Solid and PlayStation are two brands that have been bound for greatness since the beginning. And isn't it fitting that, in the wake of the eighth Metal Gear game to grace PlayStation, we've decided to go back to the start, in a big, big way.
We're proud to announce that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be coming to PS3 and PS4 with the exclusive Deja Vu throwback mission! By setting up shots from scenes based on the events of the past, you'll be recreating the events of Shadow Moses as you take control of Naked Snake as he tackles Camp Omega in totally new, yet oddly familiar conditions.
From Genome Soldiers to Hind D helicopters and FOXDIE, you'll be seeing old faces and new twists that will have you shouting TIME PARADOX by the end.
Also, check out a lengthy demo of Ground Zeroes running on PS4, below!
6w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced that Ethan: Meteor Hunter is available on PlayStation 3 today with a launch trailer video below.
To quote: Hello guys! I know, I know, we're a bit late since our first post here, promising a late summer release. But quality takes time, right?
At Seaven Studio, we're feeling super happy (and super tired), because you can enjoy our puzzle-platformer, Ethan: Meteor Hunter, today. It's available to download via PlayStation Store for PS3!
You play as Ethan, who has a great power: telekinesia. He can pause time and move objects around in order to solve puzzles. He has 50 levels to get through, set within three different worlds that feature dynamic use of physics.
These physics allows for multiple solutions to puzzles; each player can find his own way to solve a puzzle, or find the fastest way to the end of a level.
But don't take my word for it. Ethan: Meteor Hunter has been a finalist at the Develop 2013 Indie Showcase, and at the Indium Game Contest 2013! It's also been said that "Meat Boy fans will want to see this..."
I hope you enjoy it, and let us know what you think on Twitter!

To quote: Hi everyone! It's that time again where I have the pleasure of announcing the upcoming goodies coming your way courtesy of PlayStation Plus. We have a couple of huge PS3 games this month as well as two PS Vita classics to keep you entertained as the nights start to draw in!
New PlayStation 3 games:
First up this November we have Konami's masterpiece Metal Solid Rising: Revengeance. Set four years the events of Metal Gear Rising 4: Guns of the Patriots, you must take up the role of Raiden, a cyborg who confronts the private military company Desperado Enforcement.
Developed by the crack team at Platinum Games, this is one of the wildest, most entertaining pure action titles of this console generation.
Next, we've teamed up with our friends at Capcom for a title I'm personally very excited about: Remember Me.
The setting is Neo-Paris, 2084. Personal memories are now digitised, bought, sold and traded. You take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people's minds and steal or even alter...
