4w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman officially announced today that the PS4 launch has begun, and has shared some new PlayStation 4 videos below!
To quote: It won't be long now! PS4 is is just hours from making its grand debut and lines are filling up at retailers nationwide. Meanwhile, the PlayStation team is holed up at The Standard, High Line, a luxury hotel in downtown New York City in preparation for one of the most dynamic launch events in gaming history (and psst: You're invited!).
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the week's buildup, including a dazzling interactive light show and live PS4 gameplay projected on surrounding buildings. If you're in the NYC area, this is one console launch you won't want to miss. And yep, we've even got a special order of PS4s on sale just for you.
In other launch-related news, I had a chance to speak with Sony Computer Entertainment President and CEO Jack Tretton about PS4′s unique place in PlayStation history.
6w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with a preview of the PlayStation Plus November 2013 content below!
To quote: It's going to be quite the month for PlayStation fans. PS4 is almost here, and it's going to be mega awesome when I fire mine up for the first time and already have two free games to play.
Yep, both Resogun, the intense and beautiful shoot 'em up from Housemarque(the amazing people behind Super Stardust) and Contrast, a unique 2D/3D puzzler platformer with a stunning art style will be available in the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members on November 15th.
Of course, we have plenty of other great games to keep you busy until then, like Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, which is an expanded and enhanced version of Capcom's original IP Dragon's Dogma. There's a new area to explore, a fast-travel system and plenty of new quests and weapons to keep you busy.
Later on this month we'll add ibb & obb, a 2-player co-op puzzler and Binary Domain, a third-person squad shooter. PS Vita owners can look forward to two amazing action-adventure titles: the classic Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and the ever-epic Soul Sacrifice.
These games will hit the Instant Game Collection at various times throughout the month, so check back with...
To quote: For best performance you should use the MAME romset 0.78. I have tested using lower romsets such as 0.37b5 and that romset worked well, but again for best performance and compatibility you should use 0.78 MAME romset. There are some things to be aware of that i have outlined below. As this is still an experimental core and could have some issues not discovered yet.
MAME romset 0.78 is required for best performance.
At first screen of MAME agreement when ask to type OK, Move Left Stick - Left to Right to signal "OK"
R3 will access the RetroArch Main Menu.
R2 will access the MAME Menu options.

Core is based on v0.9.8 of RetroArch (not the current 0.9.9).

To quote: Hey, PlayStation fans. It's awesome to be at Gamescom this week.
For the first time ever, we're showing off live demos of Destiny at an event that's open to everyone! Since our new action game is more fun when it's experienced with other people, it makes all the sense in the world to welcome gamers to explore the frontier with us.
If you weren't able to make it to the convention, we have no intention of leaving you behind. This week, we're delving deeper into the details for how you'll become legend in Destiny. This video helps us tell that story.
Check out the adventure that awaits you in our brave new world. Create a character. Defeat your enemies. Complete your missions to earn sweet rewards that make your Guardian more and more dangerous. You'll need new ways to fight to tackle the story as it unfolds before you.
We'll be sharing more of Destiny in the months to come, but this is a chance to take another step toward this exciting experience that we're creating for PS3 and PS4. Thanks for watching!
