Sony Goes Hands-on with Strider PS4 on PlayStation 4, Details

50°
12w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Strider PS4 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: The wintry streets of Kazakh City are teeming with soldiers, automated sentry turrets, and terrified citizens.

This striking blend of Russian architecture and dystopian elements set the stage for Strider, which launches for PS3 and PS4 next month. When we first saw Strider running last year, we enjoyed an early look at the PS3 version. This time the PS4 version took the spotlight.

Set in an alternate future of Earth, the world is ruled by the mysterious Grandmaster Meio. Hiryu, the youngest recruit of the Strider program, accepts the mission to eliminate Meio and end his tyrannical supremacy. Hiryu arrives in Kazakh City and is quickly engulfed in conflict.

At its core, Strider is a side-scrolling action game with breathless combat and a near feverish pace. Players explore Kazakh and earn upgrades and powers along the way, which in turn enable them to access more areas of the map.

All the action revolves around Hiryu, who blazes across rooftops, over wires, through buildings, and down walls with an absolute dominion over fear. Anything that stands in his way gets sliced...

12w ago - Today Sony reports (via Eurogamer) that they are investigating PlayStation 4 error code CE-34878-0, which according to reports corrupts PS4 save files and share captures.

To quote: Sony has told Eurogamer it is aware of a mysterious PlayStation 4 error which is affecting users' save files.

PS4 owners who experience the mysterious CE-34878-0 error have reported finding their saves corrupted for some of the platform's biggest games.

"We are aware of the cases and we appreciate your patience while we investigate," a Sony spokesperson told us.

A 36-page thread on the official PlayStation forum, dug up by IGN, documents the troubles of hundreds of PS4 owners.

The thread includes cases of users losing progress in an array of titles, such as Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, NBA 2K14 and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.

The spread of the issue - across multiple games and publishers - suggests its origin lies with Sony's hardware itself.

13w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation Game Releases for the week of January 21st, 2014.

To quote: If there's one thing that video games have taught us through the years, it's this: don't fall on your face. Really, just let that one sink in for a bit.

Falling on your face hurts, it's embarrassing, and more often than not it interrupts your score combo. Fortunately, a new, retro skateboarding game named OlliOlli is here to train you on avoiding faceplants. It launches this week on PlayStation Vita.

OlliOlli combines the fun of pulling off tricks with the thrill of one-life gameplay. In order to keep your score going, you'll need to hit every single landing perfectly. No falling on your face.

OlliOlli features more than 120 tricks and grinds to master across 50 brutally challenging levels. Train up, and you could even take on the Daily Grind - a worldwide, one-time-only challenge to earn a highscore in a 24 hour period.

For a complete list of games and demos coming to PlayStation this week, head below. And enjoy the Drop!
