9w ago - Supergiant Games Audio Director Darren Korb shared a glimpse behind the music and sounds of Transistor on PlayStation 4 below today.

To quote: Hey everybody! I'm Darren, the audio director at [Register or Login to view links] and composer for Transistor. I've been blown away by the amazing response the game and the music have been getting, and I thought I'd tell you a little bit about my approach to the game's music.

From our point of view as a team, audio is a really important part of creating an immersive, atmospheric experience, and everything I do as audio director is in service of that.

Supergiant is based in of San Francisco, but Logan Cunningham (our talented voice actor) and I are all the way in New York. Since we're a small team, we have to make do with whatever we can get our hands on when it comes to making games!

That's my apartment (and dog and baby) to the right. Just about all the sounds and music in [Register or Login to view links] were created here. The constraint of working out of my home studio, with only the resources available to me, is a big part of my creative process.

It means that all the music in the game is made up of some combination of recorded instrument parts that...

10w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino invites PlayStation Vita fans to promote real music in BigFest on PS Vita in a video trailer below.

To quote: Revealed at Gamescom 2013 for PS Vita, BigFest is about building your own festival that will promote real, unsigned bands. Players will go on a journey with the bands with the goal of building their own thriving festival and becoming the most successful promoter in the world.

Do you have what it takes to discover the next big thing, and take them to the top of the charts?





Before you take a band to the top, you'll need to give them a platform, and that means building the best festival you can. Starting with a small stage in a field, it's up to the player to build their festival their way.

Choose the basics from shops and stalls to earn money and use that money to enhance your festival by installing the right speakers, lights and video screens, increasing the "vibe" as you go.

The levels themselves are run as Festival "Posters," with headliners and support acts. Some Posters will let you play whatever music you want while others will have specific needs to succeed. Visitors to a rock festival will have different needs to those at a dance...

11w ago - Square Enix Senior Product Manager Sakura Minamida posted up a video today showcasing Drakengard 3 on PS3 dubbed Making Music with NIER Composer Keiichi Okabe below.

To quote: It feels like only yesterday that we announced Drakengard 3 on PS3, but in just two more weeks the game will be in your hands.

We're rolling out some of the best content yet in preparation for the launch, starting with this interview with the incredibly talented sound director of the game, Keiichi Okabe.

If you're familiar with the NIER soundtrack, widely acclaimed as one of the best game soundtracks ever created, you already know his work.





Okabe's interview is insightful and candid, as he discusses his musical group's unique approach to creating music, and even how the Drakengard 3 soundtrack will come across to fans of NIER's haunting compositions. But I won't go into too much detail, because you should watch for yourself!

Coinciding with this music-based interview, we've also updated the game's official Web site, [Register or Login to view links], which now features cuts of almost every track on the Drakengard 3 soundtrack, which is also available to purchase from the [Register or Login to view links]
 

Video: PS4 Music Player App Revealed by Shuhei Yoshida's PSN Profile

100°
12w ago - Following the rumors that MP3 playback is coming soon to the PlayStation 4, today what may be a Sony PS4 Music Player application was revealed by Shuhei Yoshida's PSN Profile!

To quote: There have been rumors of MP3 playback support coming to the PS4 with a future update, and something found by one of our readers that snooped on Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida's PSN profile definitely seems to add solidity to those rumors:

Apparently Yoshida-san ran a "Music Player Demo" app yesterday, and it left very visible tracks on his PSN profile, as you can see in the pictures at the bottom of the post:

Of course we don't have clear information on what the "Music Player" entails, or if it'll really play MP3 files, but now we know that it exists, and it's being tested internally at Sony Computer Entertainment.

It's worth mentioning that normally this kind of unannounced app is kept hidden from profiles, but apparently someone forgot to flip that switch.

We'll have to stand by and see if the app will be announced any time soon, or if it'll make it in the upcoming 1.7 firmware update.

This one will tell you all about the splendid sounds and music we made especially for the game, including a completely bespoke original score.
