50°
6h ago - Sony PlayStation Brand Marketing Senior Vice President Guy Longworth cordially invites PlayStation 4 gamers to a little bit of friendly PS4 competition today.

To quote: It is hard to believe that it has been nearly a year since [Register or Login to view links] arrived in stores.

Since then, we've seen the incredible passion of the PlayStation Nation, and plenty of new converts too, rise up in support of the connected social experience at the heart of the new console. To date, millions of screenshots and videos have been shared around the world, but perhaps the most important thing to be shared is the amazing experience that friends get when they play together.

There's something special about grabbing your PS4 controller, sitting down with a friend, and starting up a game. Whether side-by-side on the couch or online, there's nothing quite like getting ready for some real competitive or cooperative gaming.

Here at PlayStation we know that feeling very well, and always enjoy the chance to talk strategy with a friend the next day, or help them remember their defeat.





Our new video is dedicated to those...
 

Video: Hellblade PS4 Dev Diary: Creating the World on PlayStation 4

200°
1w ago - Ninja Theory Product Development ninja Dominic Matthews posted up a PS4 Development Diary video which covers creating the world on PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hello, Dominic Matthews here from Ninja Theory. I wanted to come back to PlayStation.Blog to share our latest development diary with you and to also give an update on how things are progressing with the creation of our new PS4 title Hellblade.

Back in August we announced Hellblade at PlayStation's Gamescom Press Conference, which at the time was just 4 months into development. By traditional standards, we were announcing the game incredibly early in development.

The reason for such an early announcement is that we want to share as much of Hellblade's development with you as we possibly can.

The standard approach is for games and their development to be hidden away, with details slowly drip fed to players very carefully and slowly over time. But we want to do the opposite. We announced early so that we could start sharing our development approach, creative exploration and decision making from the very beginning.

Since Gamescom we've been updating our site with regular development diary videos, blog posts, concept art and live streams. We've released three development diaries to date, focused on the announcement...

To quote: It's really exciting to finally bring the Defense Grid franchise to the world of PlayStation! With the release of [Register or Login to view links] on PS4, we now get to share the balance, polish, and creativity that has made Defense Grid famous.

It's considered one of the very best Tower Defense games ever built and we now get to share a new experience with a new set of players - and on a great next-generation platform.

To take on this challenge, we looked closely at how Defense Grid 2 could be its very best on PS4. All the key game features are here, of course: the full story campaign with 21 levels, extensive challenge modes with hundreds of towers and aliens all active at once, smooth performance, great control and response, superfast load times, and dynamic music, voice acting and story that gives a Defense Grid campaign its character and ambiance.

When we brought multiplayer to Defense Grid 2, its integration with the PlayStation Network really shined. Not only does Defense Grid 2 make it easy to invite a friend or search for a particular...
