200°
4w ago - Following up on the previous PS3 Ban Wave and more recent PS4 Ban Wave, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 users are now reporting that a massive PS4 and PS3 ban wave is hitting COD: Ghosts with Activision stating the bans will not be reversed.

Below are the details, to quote: Reports are beginning to surface of a massive ban wave that appears to be primarily targeting PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 users playing Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Ghosts.

While most of the bans are presumably just, a number of users are claiming bans were issued to them through error and are looking to resolve the mistake.

User “tcsdaniels” wrote a lengthy post on the official Call of Duty: Ghosts forums explaining his situation, saying that he and his son have been permanently banned, despite their more casual approach to the game. ”After a bit of research and reviewing the past week or so of the games my son and I played, we believe the innocent players that did not either back out of a hacked...
 

Video: Aztez is Going to Blow Up Your PS4 and PlayStation Vita

4w ago - Team Colorblind Combat Designer Ben Ruiz boasts today that Aztez is going to blow up your PS4 and PlayStation Vita consoles.

To quote: Hi! I'm Ben Ruiz, the artist and combat designer at Team Colorblind in Arizona.

I'm super excited to announced that Aztez, the brutal, bloody, expressive, difficult, and replayable action game I've been working on for two years now is coming to Sony's magnificent, next-gen beast machines. For your own information, Team Colorblind is myself and also Matthew Wegner.

"Brutal, bloody, expressive, difficult, and replayable?!" is probably what you're thinking as your eyes widen in the dim glow of my audacity. But I sincerely believe that we are cooking up something you will like! At its core, Aztez is two games. One of those games is a full on real-time beat 'em up combat experience.

We've piped in the feel and creativity of Bayonetta, the sensationalism and mobility of Capcom's Alien Vs Predator, and the precision difficulty of classic Devil May Cry. As the combat designer, I've been studying these types of games for years, and I refuse to produce and hand you something that won't dangerously raise your heart rate and dopamine levels.

Videos: InFamous Second Son: Ruthless vs. Heroic PS4 Gameplay

4w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared some video footage today spotlighting InFamous Second Son PS4 gameplay dubbed Ruthless vs Heroic below.

To quote: In inFAMOUS Second Son, your gameplay style and moral choices influence your superhuman powers in profound ways. If you're a goodie two-shoes when using your Neon powers, you'll be able to briefly slow time while zooming in for precise shots - crucial for pegging foes in their legs and immobilizing them.

If you play as a power-drunk renegade, you'll want to kill enemies in rapid succession to keep your combo meter growing, which unlocks new abilities more quickly.

We've invited two community members to take a shot at playing the game in two different ways. Below, YouTube raconteur whiteboy7thst takes you through the finer points of the Ruthless playstyle, while Minecraft kingpin HojjoshMC shares his Heroic experiences.

Sony Announces Indie Horror Game Home Coming to PS4, PS Vita

50°
4w ago - Benjamin Rivers Inc Director Benjamin Rivers announced via Sony's Blog today that Indie horror game Home is coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Home was a welcome surprise to horror game lovers when it launched on PC in 2012, and it delighted a whole new audience on mobile in 2013.

Its simple controls and heavy reliance on rich sound and atmosphere, though, make it a great choice for a console system - so I'm happy to announce that Home is making the jump to PS4 and PS Vita this year!

Part of Home's charm is that it's entirely dependent on the player; it isn't a march toward Ending A or Ending B - it's the journey itself that is affected, as all your little choices subtly change how your character perceives the world around him. It's a game that people love playing and then discussing afterward to compare notes and theories.

More importantly, it's a game that's meant to be played alone, in the darkest room (or alley, or barn, or deep, dank forest) you can find. On PS4, this means you can turn off the lights, crank that sound system and let the dread wash over you.

If you're extra brave, you can play the game on your Vita - somewhere scary, where no one will find you, and with a fat pair of headphones, of course.
