35w ago - Sony's Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new New Sony PS4, PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

In the wake of the PS4 launch, the world of PlayStation continues to grow with rubber-burning races, online fighters, shadow puzzles, anime antics, and farming?!

If you've yet to purchase a PS4, the latest edition in the Need for Speed series hits PS3 this week with enough breakneck competition to satisfy the most seasoned adrenaline junkie.

Need for Speed Rivals features the AllDrive system, which fuses single-player driving into a seamless multiplayer world, where your friends can race in and out of events without the need for lobbies or loading.

But if you're more in the mood for a colorful, thought-provoking challenge, look no further than Contrast, which also lands on PS3 Tuesday.

And for those of you gamers that still fondly remember crossing blades in Soulcalibur II, perhaps you'll want to note the imminent arrival of Soulcalibur II HD Online - a visually upgraded take on the classic fighter.

Hungry for more? Head below for a complete list of new games joining the PlayStation family this week. Enjoy the Drop.

Sony Goes Hands-on with Dying Light PS4 on PlayStation 4

36w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Dying Light PS4 on PlayStation 4.

Below are the details, to quote: The art of parkour already has ample thrills for any athlete. You certainly don't need hordes of snarling ghouls nipping at your heels to make it any more exhilarating, but Dying Light blends the two together in a huge world devastated by the undead apocalypse.

Designed by the same team that brought Dead Island to the gaming masses, Dying Light is a first-person survival game. It boasts a new combat system and tremendous player freedom in complex environments. It also, as you might expect, includes lots and lots of infected (and ways to kill them, too).

The developers at Techland brought Dying Light to the PS4 launch event here in New York City this week, demonstrating the broad array of tactical options players have to approach any situation in game. Both combat and movement are essential components to the experience - running away from danger is just about as much fun as running straight into it.

Dying Light is set inside the wrecked and ruined city of Harran, a fictional locale with an ancient history. Game Designer Maciej Binkowski likens it to Istanbul, Turkey, as he boots up Dying Light on PS4, passing me the DualShock 4 with an eager...

Sony Goes Hands-On with Need for Speed Rivals for PlayStation 4

36w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Need for Speed Rivals for PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: When the idyllic forests and glittering coasts of Redview County are screaming by your window, there's precious little time to appreciate online functionality like Alldrive. Which, in a way, suggests how well it's been implemented in the blazing-fast Need for Speed Rivals.

From the newly minted Ghost Games in Gothenburg, Sweden, Rivals launches alongside PS4 on November 15th. It puts players firmly behind the wheel of either a cop or racer in a massive network of roads, laced through boiling desert and rainy hills.

Rivals made an impressive appearance at the PS4 launch event here in New York City, with a live demonstration of the Alldrive multiplayer functionality, and even a few perilous night races using PS Vita Remote Play.

With DualShock 4 in hand, I dropped into Redview - which was heavily inspired by the California coast - where several players were already burning through the map. Ghost Games' Founder Marcus Nilsson was at my side as a fellow cop.

No pressure. Pulling up alongside his beautiful patrol car, he started a pursuit event. One touch of L1 and we were in the event together, chasing after a group of racers...
