1w ago - Sony Game Director Mark Cerny shared details today on mastering Knack's unlockable gadgets on PlayStation 4 / PS4.
Below are the details, to quote: PS4 released in North America on November 15th, and it was wonderful to see the response! We sold over a million units in the first day, which set a record for any console in the PlayStation family.
Knack released alongside PS4, which was also very nice and a culmination of a lot of hard work! We're excited to have the game out in the wild, so to speak. Now that it's out there, we wanted to take a little time to explain how having friends on PlayStation Network can enhance the game by boosting the number of gadgets you can collect.
There are over sixty secret rooms in Knack, and contained within these rooms are treasure chests - when Knack opens a chest, a random item pops out. Most of these items are parts of gadgets that will help Knack in his quest.
There are eight gadgets in all, and they vary greatly in their difficulty to construct. Simpler gadgets are made of three parts, and the tougher gadgets are made of up to seven parts.
However, you have help! If any of your friends have found this same secret room, you can see the item that they found there. If you'd prefer the item that a friend found - perhaps it's...
4w ago - XGen Studios CEO and Founder Skye Boyes shared a video today on Super Motherload on PS4 which explores both the story and game modes below.
To quote: With just one week until Super Motherload launches alongside PS4, I'm eager to share with you PlayStation.Blog readers a bit about what makes Super Motherload tick, as well as show off a brand new video to set the scene.
Super Motherload is an arcade style digging adventure for one to four players, set on Mars in the retro future (And if that's not a mouthful enough, you're welcome to add "Soviet space race," "B movie sci-fi," and "mining puzzler" to the mix!).
Inspired by our original game, Motherload, we wanted to bring Mars mining to consoles and breathe some life back into the four-player, couch co-op style of gameplay that we love and miss so much. Online play can't hold a candle to a good, "reassuring" elbow to the ribs when your buddy goes in the wrong direction with no fuel to spare.
Super Motherload's visual charm is no doubt rooted in some of our favorite movies and tv shows of past decades, including Battlestar Galactica (the original), Buck Rogers, and Moon, to name a few. Those favorites, along with an '80s inspired soundtrack, all lend to...
4w ago - 2K Games Senior Community Manager Ronnie Singh posted up a video below today announcing that NBA 2K14's Eco-Motion Engine brings players to life on PS4.
To quote: What an exciting year for everyone in the video game industry. The team here at 2K has seen a lot over the years, and experienced countless new system launches.
But we've never seen one like this year, with the launch of PS4. It's an old cliche that new technology allows developers to take their products to the next level, but that's never been truer than now.
As work began on NBA 2K14 for PS4, the next-gen technology inspired our developers at Visual Concepts to develop a completely new experience from the ground up. NBA 2K14 on PS4 will feature re-built game modes, stunning life-like graphics, and a brand new gameplay engine.
With that said, 2K is excited to unveil the all-new Eco-Motion Engine for NBA 2K14 on PS4. With Eco-Motion, the entire NBA experience comes to life in ways never before seen in a video game, including crowd reactions, atmosphere, coaching strategies, real player voices, and most of all the emotion of the game.
Player animations are dynamic, and evolve on the fly as you play. Player personalities...
4w ago - HumaNature Studios Founder Greg Johnson made available a video today on discovering humanity in Doki-Doki Universe which arrives this December.
To quote: Greetings fellow humans! I'm Greg Johnson (creator of Toejam and Earl) and I run HumaNature Studios, the small Northern Ca. studio that has been busy building Doki-Doki Universe for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. I hope you'll enjoy seeing the trailer and pretty soon, our game.
I'm here today to talk a bit about how we're creating Doki Doki Universe, which will be available in December 2013 for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
In Doki-Doki Universe you play the role of a forlorn little robot named Model QT377665 (QT3 for short). You have been abandoned by your human family and are about to get scrapped by the factory that made you, unless you can prove that you're able to learn more about what it means to be human.
On your journey to become more human, you travel across planets and meet all sorts of crazy characters to help solve their problems. You can even take fun personality quizzes where the doctor will evaluate your progress. Along the way, we hope you find something out about yourself too.
5w ago - Sports Product Marketing Manager Tyler Vaught announced today alongside a video that MLB 14 The Show is coming to PS4, PS3, PS Vita in Spring 2014.
To quote: The 2013 baseball season may have just ended, but we're not ready to stop talking baseball here at PlayStation. We're proud to announce the award-winning MLB The Show series will be coming to the PS4 system next spring with MLB 14 The Show. The beloved franchise will also launch on the PS3 and PS Vita systems, making PlayStation your home for baseball.
With a new generation of consoles comes a new face for MLB The Show. Last year, you - the fan - voted on which superstar should be on the cover, and chose superstar Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates. With this year's iteration of The Show, we did something that's never been done in video game history - we let the ball players vote.
Our cover athlete was chosen by his fellow players, by the opponents who compete against him day in and day out. Every player in the big leagues had the opportunity to nominate one player for this year's cover, and earlier tonight at the 2013 Player's Choice Awards on the MLB Network, the winner was revealed.
We're proud to announce that eight-time All-Star, 2012 American League Most Valuable Player, 2012 American League Triple-Crown...
