50°
3w ago - Sony Vice President of Developer and Publisher Relations Adam Boyes announced that PlayStation still loves devs and is now 1,000 self-publishers strong with a video below!

To quote: PS4 has been met with an amazing amount of enthusiasm and excitement from both gamers and developers alike since its launch back in November, and the 6 million gamers who have already bought PS4 have really embraced this next-generation gaming experience.

We've got more than 100 games scheduled to launch on PS4 this year alone, including Watch_Dogs, The Elder Scrolls Online, Destiny, and The Order: 1886.

That amazing lineup is made possible by the development community, who have been hard at work with our hardware, already pushing it to do things that we never expected. Recently we reached a significant milestone with more than 1,000 developers licensed globally to self-publish on our platforms, 200 of those licensed in North America since PS4 was unveiled in February 2013.

A year ago at the Game Developers Conference, we kicked our support for independent developers into high-gear....
 

Video: Mind Zero is Coming to PlayStation Vita on May 27th, 2014

3w ago - Aksys Games Marketing Manager Russell Iriye announced today that Mind Zero is coming to PlayStation Vita on May 27th, 2014 alongside a PS Vita video trailer below.

To quote: Greetings friends! Russell here from Aksys Games. Today, we announced that our newest title from Acquire and Zero Div will be hitting PS Vita on May 27th!

To celebrate, we've updated the Mind Zero website to give you a full rundown of the game, as well as posted a trailer. Mind Zero is a first-person dungeon crawler where you fight with your MINDs (literally and figuratively). We're here today to touch upon the story and get into a bit more details about the battle mechanics of Mind Zero.

Kei is a normal high school student until his life turns upside down when he forms a contract with a MIND, a weapon/being with deadly powers. With the government and other forces trailing him and his friends, Kei will need to discover the secret behind MIND before it's too late. Suspenseful stuff, right?

When you battle it out against the various other MINDs in the game, you'll have a choice to duke it out by yourself, use your MIND, or do a bit of both. There lies the challenge and fun of Mind Zero. Not only will you have to think about protecting yourself, but your MIND as well.



 

Video: Watch_Dogs: Welcome to Chicago on PS4 and PS3, Details

100°
3w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt made available a new Watch_Dogs video today dubbed Welcome to Chicago for PS4 and PS3 fans with details below.

To quote: As the third largest city in America and an iconic urban landscape, Chicago also holds the distinction of being the most surveilled city in the nation.

Its network of cameras and security systems makes Chicago the perfect setting for a game like Watch_Dogs. One of the challenges of rendering a real city in a game is balancing creative vision with reality: people must be able to recognize and believe in Watch_Dogs' Chicago while allowing the game's unique tone to shape its atmosphere.

With the freedom afforded by Disrupt, an impressive new game engine exclusive to Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft has created a version of Chicago that is almost impossibly alive. Learn all about the new engine and how we've created a living, breathing Chicago inside Watch_Dogs here:





Watch_Dogs is never just black and white; whether in expressing Aiden's morality or building the city in which he lives, there is always another layer to consider. On the surface, The Wards may be crime-ridden, festering in the shadow of the Mad Mile, but beneath the mirrored sky-scrapers and...
 

Video: Arkham Knight: Building the Ultimate Batmobile on PS4

3w ago - Rocksteady Studios Game Director Sefton Hill posted up a video today showcasing Arkham Knight on building the ultimate Batmobile for PS4.

To quote: I've always said that working on a Batman game is a huge privilege for us. Even though we have been working on Batman for over seven years, we've never lost sight of the fact that we are the current custodians of a very special universe.

So it was with great excitement, and not a small amount of trepidation, that we decided to add the fully playable Batmobile into the Arkhamverse, knowing that it would disrupt all of our existing systems and bring with it a huge amount of pressure to deliver on expectations.

I guess this is what excited me most about integrating this very special vehicle. Taking on challenges which don't have an easy answer is where the best innovations come, because you are forced to do the unexpected.

As it was with taking on a character that cannot kill and is powerful but vulnerable, so it is with taking on a car that is (in most right-minded people's heads) the single greatest vehicle ever.

Integrating the Batmobile married up with our design philosophy at Rocksteady:...
