To quote: Hi everybody! First of all, we've been live in the United States for two days now and, according to your user reviews, we've been getting a whole lot of love.

But we'd be thrilled to hear what you think in the comments below or on Twitter. And hey, there's still a couple of days left on the Spring Fever promotion for all you PlayStation Plus people out there - which means 20% off on SteamWorld Dig as well as a whole bunch of other titles. The sale lasts until March 24th, so don't miss it.

Today we'd like to dive a bit deeper into the gameplay of SteamWorld Dig by dishing out a few spoiler free hints and tips.

Also, because a lot of you have been asking about cross buy, we're happy to confirm that SteamWorld Dig is cross buy across PS4 and PS Vita. And now for a few hints and tips to all you new diggers out there...

Don't Get Greedy

Even though SteamWorld Dig is a mining game, hoarding is not recommended. If you're unfortunate enough to fall to your death or get crushed by a falling boulder, you'll be reassembled back in town. But reassembly comes at a price. Half your mined gold is the standard fee....
 

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PS4 - PlayStation 4 Beta Tips

8w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens posted up some PlayStation 4 Beta tips today for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PS4.

To quote: It's now Saturday. The floodgates have opened, and our login servers are starting to grind their gears in earnest - the PS4 beta has begun!

For those of you that have not yet found your way into the realm of Eorzea, this is for you. If you haven't download the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PS4 beta, just jump into PlayStation Store now.

First Steps

After you've logged in and updated the game, you can go straight to the character creation process. This is really straightforward - choose whatever suits you best! From hulking Roegadyn to tiny Lalafell, all is available to you.

But an important note: if you want to play with friends, you'll want to make sure that you choose classes that start in the same city! It's a long trip from city to city, until you do the quest to access a new travel method at level 15.

While you work yourself through the introduction, you'll be in an instance (a sealed-off area in the game) that only you are in. That's normal - as soon as you've finished the first few quests, you'll find yourself among tons of other players.

The game will introduce the...
 

Video: Mojang Outlines 10 Tips for Playing Minecraft on PS3

50°
17w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill outlined 10 tips alongside a video today for those playing Minecraft on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Hi again guys, Owen from Mojang, here. Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition launched a few days ago. We thought it would be nice to get some tips from the developers to help you learn the basics.

I asked around the office and gathered these for you. Hope they help!

1. Never dig straight down! It's a lot harder to get back to the surface, and you might end up dropping into lava. Lava is uncomfortably hot.

2. Never dig straight up! You might end up with a head full of sand, gravel, or the melty hot stuff we mentioned earlier.

3. If you come to a junction while mining, and one of the routes leads upwards, take that one. Explore the safe options first, and then go adventuring deep underground.

4. Always watch your back in dark places! There might be something scary behind you... waaah!

5. Make sure you bring torches. Place them first, then collect the resources later.
 

Twitch on PlayStation 4: 7 Tips for New PS4 Broadcasters Detailed

21w ago - Twitch Content Director Jon Carnage shared 7 tips today for new PS4 broadcasters on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Editor's note: We'll be streaming PS4 games regularly over on the PlayStation Twitch channel - tune in!

It's been less than a week since PS4 launched with Twitch broadcasting functionality, and the feedback we've been getting from new broadcasters has been phenomenal!

To help new streamers ease into the Twitch community - which is already 45 million members strong - here are some tips for first-time broadcasters:

• Be a curator of conversations: Drive conversation with your viewers. Talk about everything and don't just focus your conversation about the game or games in general. Talk about life, pop culture, music and everything in between.

• Go live longer than an hour: It might sound shocking at first, but Twitch is long-form entertainment. Our broadcasters stream for hours, so find a sweet spot and before you know it you'll be rocking a 24-hour broadcast in celebration of a new game release.

• Find a genre: When laying the foundation for your channel, don't feel the need to be the best at every game. However, if you are good at one genre (FPS, Platforming,...

21w ago - Armature Studio Game Director Mark Pacini shared some Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate PS Vita tips and tricks today in video format below.

To quote: Hey everyone, Mark Pacini here, Game Director at Armature Studio for Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate. We have some videos highlighting our latest game on PS Vita.

Blackgate is a 2.5D Metroidvania take on the popular Batman: Arkham series. The game itself takes place three months after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins, where Batman is sent in to investigate a riot at Blackgate Prison.

We recorded several "Case Files" to both introduce people to the game, as well as give a few hints here and there. We want you to be able to get the most out of Blackgate, as we tried to pour as much variety and intensity into it as possible.

Combat

FreeFlow Combat is one of the core pillars of the Batman: Arkham franchise, and we've adapted FreeFlow Combat from the console editions of the games into the 2.5D perspective of Blackgate. We had specific challenges in bringing this combat into the 2.5D plane on a completely different game engine, while maintaining the feeling of "being Batman" in combat.

This video highlights the various combat encounters in the game, including the different thug types, as well...
