8w ago - Now that you can pre-order PlayStation 4 titles such as Knack and Warframe on Sony's PSN Store, they have adapted a new PS4 digital DRM (Digital Rights Management) policy as detailed below.
To quote: "With the PlayStation Store, you can download your games to two systems. However, playing those games is a different story. When you're on your primary system, the one you use all the time, you can play as you normally would.
But to play on another system, the owner of the game must be signed into his or her PSN account. So for instance if I go to a friend's house and want to play Knack, I need to stay signed into my PSN account in order for us to continue playing. If I am on my PS4, I can play it without signing in.
This is different from the current digital DRM practice with the PS3 where you can download on up to two systems, but don't need to be signed in with the purchasing account to play said game.
The PlayStation 4 will be available in the US on November 15th and Europe on November 29th."
12w ago - The Mark of Kri Executive Producer Jonathan Beard revealed making The Mark of Kri today, which is coming to PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Editor's Note: Beloved PS2 Classic The Mark of Kri will be available on PS3 via PlayStation Store next Tuesday, so we reached out to the game's Executive Producer, Jonathan Beard, to ask for some stories and insights from its development.
He responded in kind, with one of the most detailed write-ups in PlayStation.Blog history, and a bevy of heretofore unseen concept art. Enjoy.
In the early 2000′s, I had taken over the role of studio director at SCEA San Diego, and moved from Foster City with some key members of the Blasto team. Tim Neveu who was the lead artist on Blasto was given the chance to produce his first game.
Tim and I had known each other for a while and shared a lot of the same interests. We often discussed classic games and were alligned on the kind of game we wanted to make - a "fantasy" game - big guy and a sword, maybe an axe.
13w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani revealed today that Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is coming to PS3 with details below.
To quote: After staggering demand, we're extremely pleased to announce that Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD - originally released last year on PS Vita - is set to arrive on PSN as a digital download in beautifully re-mastered HD!
Starring our first ever female playable assassin, Aveline de Grandpré, Assassin's Creed III: Liberation has received a comprehensive overhaul in preparation for its debut on PS3.
Aveline has quickly become a fan favorite within the Assassin's Creed universe, and we're excited to bring her machete-swinging, poison-dart blowpiping, whip-snapping, and pistol-wielding action to a broader audience.
The groundbreaking AnvilNext engine returns to bring the steamy Louisiana bayou and mystical Mayan ruins to life with its unique tree navigation system, detailed physics simulation, and smooth animation.
Liberation HD capitalizes on the move to more powerful hardware in every possible way, with improved graphics, re-mastered music and new sound effects, and added gameplay bonuses like new missions!
