3w ago - Zoink developer Klaus Lyngeled shared a video today announcing that Stick It to the Man is out tomorrow on PlayStation 3.
To quote: Wow! It has been a great week here at Zoink: years of sketching, painting, story writing, puzzle coding and voice-acting have come to an end, and this week you can all Stick It to The Man on your PS3. And it actually looks like we did something right. Reviews are popping up all over the place and it's looking good, actually amazingly awesome! Mostly 9 out of 10!
Besides floating around on pink clouds with goofy smiles on our faces, we even managed to throw a brand-spanking new gameplay trailer together. Check it out - it'll be much easier than me trying to explain the game to you.
We internally call it the Crazy Trailer. It's just crazily overloaded with stuff; we had a really hard time choosing what should go in, so we just packed it pretty full with a bit of everything!
You can preorder the game now, or wait until PlayStation Store updates tomorrow to buy it. It's cross-buy, so when the PS Vita version is released in December you'll get that too! For updates check out the Web site or head to the Facebook...
3w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus updates today, which include Binary Domain and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath free for members.
To quote: Chances are, if you picked up a PlayStation 4 last week you're still enjoying our PS4 PlayStation Plus titles, RESOGUN and Contrast, and that's totally cool. However, if you're anxiously waiting for your PS4 to arrive later this holiday season, we've got you covered with a new PlayStation 3 and PS Vita game this week.
Binary Domain, a futuristic third-person squad-based shooter, is hitting the PS3 Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Morality meets gunfire, Binary Domain's Consequences System means you'll need to be aware of your actions - how your squad views you can impact the game as well as how the storyline progresses.
On PS Vita there's Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, an action-adventure where you step into the role of Stranger, a bounty hunter. Whether or not you head into your bounties guns blazing or prefer a more stealthy approach is up to you, as well as whether you apprehend your subjects alive or dead.
Your main goal is to earn as much money as possible, so it's kind of like real life.
You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store...
4w ago - Following up on the previous PlayStation 4 Teardown Video and North American PS4 Launch, today iFixit (linked above) has shared a PS4 Teardown and Review video of their own below with pictures available HERE.
To quote: The thorough analysis from the Web site rates the PS4 an 8 out of 10 based on repairability, additionally showing that common hardware issues preventing the PS4 from outputting a video signal to the display is likely the cause of a bent or damaged HDMI port on the console.
The PS4 breakdown also gives a closer look at the user-replaceable hard drive which can be replaced "with any off-the shelf drive you like" as long as it is no thicker than 9.5 mm and no smaller than 160 GB.
Deeper into the belly of the PS4 shows the system's power supply is rated at an AC Input of 100 to 240 volts, meaning "you can take your game around the world with your trusty PS4 always at your side" as...
4w ago - Sony President & CEO Jack Tretton cordially announced today that the PS4 videogaming and entertainment system is now available in North America alongside a PS4 Launch Games List below!
To quote: Today is a historic day for PlayStation - and gamers everywhere - as we usher in a new era of gaming with the North American launch of PlayStation 4.
We have poured an incredible amount of power and innovation into PS4 to bring you the most immersive, jaw-dropping gaming and entertainment experiences imaginable. Now you get to see for yourself why PlayStation is the best place to play.
This past week we celebrated the launch of PS4 with bi-coastal events taking place in New York City and San Francisco. I can't imagine a better way to introduce a new platform into the growing world of PlayStation than being in two of the biggest cities in the U.S. and live streaming all of the action to you.
Since we introduced PlayStation 4 earlier this year, feedback from the gaming community has been phenomenal. With media reviews saying that the PS4 is "just shy of perfection" and that it is "an impressive package for gamers," it's clear that PS4′s horsepower, deep social capabilities, network features, and amazing gameplay have struck a chord.
