6w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 4 complete with a PS4 video below.
To quote: The dedicated team behind the next-gen edition of NBA 2K14 has an eye for detail. And not just a normal, everyday eye; they have hundreds of eyes, hell-bent on making this the best basketball experience in video game history.
Their passion just about bled onto the floor of a crowded San Francisco bar earlier this week as they presented NBA 2K14 running on PS4. It was easy to see, from the first trailer to the final multiplayer tease, that NBA 2K14 is visually arresting, and damn fun to play.
As the footage of NBA 2K14 looped over the massive bar displays, the team were insistent that the PS4 version was not a simple port job. It was built from the ground up for next-gen tech, and they made their point by announcing the brand new engine powering the action: Ecomotion.
The art assets in NBA 2K14 have been built from scratch - not a single legacy piece of art remains from the current-gen version. As Studio Art Director Anton Dawson said at the demonstration, making this look like a real, next-gen basketball game came down to "thousands of little things, and the interconnectedness of those thousands of little things."
6w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco announced today that The Wolf Among Us is coming to PlayStation Vita this Fall complete with a video trailer below.
To quote: Hey everyone! We're super happy to announce that The Wolf Among Us, the latest episodic series from Telltale Games, is coming to PS Vita for download later this fall!
What's this "Wolf" stuff about? Based on the award-winning Fables comic book series, The Wolf Among Us is an often violent, mature and hard-boiled thriller where the characters and creatures of myth, lore and legend are real and exist in our world.
These aren't quite the characters you might remember from childhood stories though. Playing as Bigby Wolf - the big bad wolf in human form - you'll discover that the brutal, bloody murder of a Fable is just a taste of things to come.
If you've already played The Walking Dead on PlayStation 3 or PS Vita, you'll be familiar with the gameplay in The Wolf Among Us. It's all about choice and consequence, but we've definitely upped the ante (especially in the action sequences)!
In case you missed it the first time around, be sure to check out the recent PlayStation Blogcast with Episode 1 co-director Nick Herman for more details on the...
6w ago - Mighty Rocket Studio CEO Francois Potentier announced today alongside a video trailer that Final Exam is coming to PlayStation 3 on November 5th, 2013.
To quote: Hey, I'm Francois. I run Mighty Rocket Studio, and I'm pleased to talk about Final Exam with you. There are nine people in the studio, and this is our first game. We created the studio for this game. So we hope that you'll love it!
Final Exam is a beat'em up in which your goal is simple: survive. You were going to a class reunion. It should have been a fantastic party... and you suddenly realize that there are monsters everywhere... and they're after you.
You can choose from 4 characters that are all classic, teen archetypes. Brutal Joe is the quarterback of the group. He likes hitting and everything related to raw power.
Cassy is a street dancer (I'm sure she was a cheerleader in school), and her special attacks are dance moves. Nathan is a geek. He loves technological stuff (and he's my favorite). The last one, Sean, is the handsome guy... but the bad boy. He likes playing with firearms.
Each character has unique, powerful attacks based on their skills. Each skill has 4 power levels, up to the ultimate attack that blasts everything...

7w ago - Frogwares Olga Ryzhko shared a video today announcing that Magrunner: Dark Pulse is out today on PlayStation 3 with details below.
To quote: Magrunner: Dark Pulse is out today on PS3! At Frogwares, we consider ourselves to be quite experienced in puzzles and riddles; mainly due to 13 years of experience making Sherlock Holmes games. Some of you may have even played our latest one, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes on PS3.
However, we wanted to work on something that would expand on the games and puzzles we normally offer. We wanted to go further and explore some really dynamic puzzles, which is not really possible with the Sherlock Holmes games. Sherlock is quite the gentleman - he doesn't even run! And this is where Magrunner, a first-person puzzler, comes in.
Magrunner is based on reasoning, logic, and thinking. You'll be shooting things - you won't be gunning down nameless hordes of enemies, soldiers or zombies, but this is where the action part of the game pops in. This is our attempt to find the delicate balance between fun and challenge, between thinking and reacting.
Magrunner: Dark Pulse is an action-driven puzzle game that combines cosmic horror with a near-future cyberpunk world on the edge...
