49w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements revealed some PS4 and DualShock 4 secrets is a Thief developer Q&A session below.

To quote: With the power of shadows at his beck and call, master thief Garrett returns to PS3 and PS4 in 2014 with a new bag of tricks.

The well-loved stealth series has always empowered gamers with a broad array of in-game choices, whether it was using lethal or nonlethal tactics to drop nosy guards, or leveraging magic and technology to overcome adversity. The upcoming Thief is no exception.

In order to learn more about Thief's stealth systems, storytelling, and PS4 benefits, we turned to Producer Stephane Roy. He shared some incredible insight into Thief's design process, and even sheds new light on how DualShock 4 will empower PS4 thieves.

So let's see what Garrett's gotten himself into this time...

PlayStation.Blog: While developing for both PS3 and PS4, do you have any predictions for what's possible on PS4 that isn't possible on PS3?

Stephane Roy: There are multiple components to this question; an AI component, an audio component, an art component. It's very important for us to immerse players in our universe.

We want to make sure players really feel like they're Garrett, that they're...

100°
50w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska posted up a fresh PSN video trailer today alongside revealing both the release date and pricing information for Atomic Ninjas on PS3 and PS Vita below.

To quote: Hey everybody, this is Jakub from Grip Games. Our newest game, Atomic Ninjas, is almost ready, and I return today to finally announce the release date and price!

Atomic Ninjas will be launched for PS3 on October 8th for $9.99! It will launch on PS Vita one week later, and it'll be cross buy.

With that said, let me introduce you to the craziest and most hilarious feature of the whole game. It's something we've been looking forward to show you for a very long time: the Noob Rage.

Sometimes, the biggest loser in the whole match who's getting massacred by all the other players, is given a very unfair chance for sweet revenge.

He'll become a raging, screaming, unstoppable hulk for a few seconds - an absolute ruler of the game who dominates the arena. When you see that one of the other players has turned into the Noob, you only have one strategy to use: run for your life! Hilarity ensues.

As if Atomic Ninjas wasn't a crazy enough game, the Noob Rage is pure chaos. The player who gets this advantage can use it to increase their score, or he can use it...

PS4 Virtual Reality Headset to be Revealed at TGS 2013

52w ago - According to CVG (linked above), Sony is preparing to reveal the final piece of its PlayStation 4 hardware strategy at TGS (Tokyo Game Show) 2013 by showcasing a PlayStation-branded virtual reality headset for the upcoming PS4 console.

To quote: "It originally intended to reveal the headset at Gamescom but plans fell through at the eleventh hour. The company is currently weighing up whether the PS4 device should be pitched as a key differentiator for the console or a non-essential add-on.

The matter has been slightly complicated, but not derailed, by the growing industry support for Oculus Rift. Sony's device will be a categorical rival to Oculus, and for months there have been rumours suggesting the two companies are seeking a partnership.

A games developer familiar with Sony's plans, who wished to remain anonymous, told CVG that Evolution Studios is currently working with the device to simulate a cockpit view on its PS4 title Drive Club.

Another developer claimed the virtual reality headset resembles the 3D headset that Sony first revealed in January 2011. The head-mounted display will be available separately, like with the new PlayStation Eye, in order to keep the baseline PS4 price as low as possible.

In August, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida suggested...
