10w ago - Sony Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman at Santa Monica Studio announced today that Journey and The Unfinished Swan are coming to PS4.

To quote: It's always fun to see what a new game console can do. Seeing as PlayStation 4 isn't even a year old yet, a few studios based in Santa Monica wanted to bring their award-winning games to the PS4.

Read below for the details on two very special announcements from two great studios that are part of the PlayStation family.

Experience Journey on PS4

Hi everyone, this is Jenova Chen, President and Creative Director of [Register or Login to view links]. It's been quite a ride seeing how far Journey has come in the two and a half years since its launch on PlayStation 3.

Thanks to the many referrals of our players over the years, we've seen a steady flow of new players discovering the game and a community of veterans helping them along the way. Many players who bought a PS4 wrote us wondering if they will be able to experience Journey one day.

Today we are happy to share that a whole new generation of players will experience the wonder of Journey when it comes to PlayStation 4 later this year.





Thanks...

64w ago - Creative Director of External Development Nathan Gary at Santa Monica Studio announced that Journey and The Unfinished Swan bundles are on sale today for $14.99.

Below are the details, to quote: Today, two beautiful games are going on sale together. Journey and The Unfinished Swan are both moving, deeply personal experiences.

They evoke wonder and mystery, and chart new territory in the world of games. Together, they are amazing examples of what makes the PlayStation experience so special, and starting this week, you'll be able to play them both for yourselves for one great price.

Read on for a few words from the creators of these uniquely personal titles.

Journey was a three year labor of love from thatgamecompany, but its true origins began considerably earlier. It started back in 2006 when I was still a student dreaming of making games professionally.

I was playing MMO games for a few years and began yearning for something more from the experience. The notion of an online game where players - actual strangers - would wish to stay close together, to care for and be cared for together, was taking shape. I was looking forward to one day creating an experience where anonymous players were able to develop a real human connection.

Even as Sony...
 

Video: PS All-Stars Zeus & Isaac, MediEvil + The Unfinished Swan Level

86w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has shared some video footage today spotlighting the new PS All-Stars Zeus & Isaac, MediEvil + The Unfinished Swan level below.

To quote: Happy to be back to tell you about some new surprises from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. More costumes? More minions? Well, okay, yes. But also more new characters!

Our newest challengers are Isaac Clarke from Electronic Arts' [Register or Login to view links], and Zeus from... well, from some of the foundational myths of Western society, but also from a little PlayStation game you might know called [Register or Login to view links] by SCEA Santa Monica Studio.

How did these two emerge as All-Stars from the vast PlayStation multiverse? Synchronicity. We were talking with some friends over at EA who were hard at work on Dead Space 3, and with a lot of Dead Space fans on our team and all the cool tools at Isaac's disposal, some quick concepts emerged and we knew he'd be a great addition.

We've also wanted to add another "heavy," hard-hitting character into All-Stars (Big Daddy was getting lonely), and with all the work on God of War: Ascension around Sony Santa Monica, Zeus emerged as a perfect fit.



 

Video: The Unfinished Swan: Art and Design Developer Diary

105w ago - Giant Sparrow Game Designer Ben Esposito has shared a video today spotlighting the art and design as part of their The Unfinished Swan developer diary.

To quote: Like a lot of folks, I first saw the tech demo for The Unfinished Swan when it made the rounds online in 2008. The idea stuck in the back of my head but it wasn't until later when Giant Sparrow put up a job posting that I decided: I had to make that game.

I had just graduated from college without much professional experience, so I did what I do best and made a game for them. You can check it out [Register or Login to view links] if you'd like. The video cuts off because the end of the game says "Call me" and has my phone number on it.

It got the attention of the Giant Sparrow team, and I ended up flying out to Los Angeles to work on the game. I was elated and a little shocked, but I came to learn that at Giant Sparrow, the player experience always comes first - and my little game was designed to create a very specific experience.

Now, in October 2012, The Unfinished Swan is out in the wild (well, to PlayStation Plus members) and we're proud that we were able to make a truly experiential game.
