4w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino shared details today on more ways to play Knack, including a PS4 co-op mode and mobile application as outlined below.
To quote: Hello, everyone. We're just a little over a week away from the launch of PS4, and I can't wait for everyone to finally get their hands on Knack.
If you're looking for a taste of something different, something a little more old-school, Knack is the perfect PS4 game for you. With Knack, not only are we taking gamers back to the days of classic games like Crash Bandicoot, we're also introducing some new and unique ways to experience the game.
We have a unique two-player coop mode that puts a fun twist on traditional co-op games and is a great reason to pick up an extra DualShock 4 controller. If you own a PS Vita, there's of course Remote Play, which can even work in conjunction with our two-player co-op.
We have a fun social connectivity feature that lets you unlock collectibles faster through your network of PSN friends, and finally, we have a brand new standalone mobile game app called Knack's Quest. I'm here to talk about all of these today.
Knack's co-op is a little different from some cooperative games you may have played. From the very beginning, Knack was meant to be both a challenging...
4w ago - 2K Games Senior Community Manager Ronnie Singh posted up a video below today announcing that NBA 2K14's Eco-Motion Engine brings players to life on PS4.
To quote: What an exciting year for everyone in the video game industry. The team here at 2K has seen a lot over the years, and experienced countless new system launches.
But we've never seen one like this year, with the launch of PS4. It's an old cliche that new technology allows developers to take their products to the next level, but that's never been truer than now.
As work began on NBA 2K14 for PS4, the next-gen technology inspired our developers at Visual Concepts to develop a completely new experience from the ground up. NBA 2K14 on PS4 will feature re-built game modes, stunning life-like graphics, and a brand new gameplay engine.
With that said, 2K is excited to unveil the all-new Eco-Motion Engine for NBA 2K14 on PS4. With Eco-Motion, the entire NBA experience comes to life in ways never before seen in a video game, including crowd reactions, atmosphere, coaching strategies, real player voices, and most of all the emotion of the game.
Player animations are dynamic, and evolve on the fly as you play. Player personalities...
4w ago - Senior Creative Director DCUO Jens Andersen is here with answers to some PS4 fan questions on DC Universe Online for PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: Hello, everyone. My name is Jens Andersen, aka @Spytle, and I'm the Senior Creative Director on DC Universe Online. When PlayStation first put a callout for DCUO PS4 questions on Twitter, I was excited to see them roll in; it was hard to keep myself from answering them right away, but I managed to restrain myself.
Thanks to everyone that submitted questions - it's great to see so much interest in DC Universe Online on PS4. I'm excited to finally start answering them, so without further adieu, let's get started.
@Arkham_InmateJH: What exactly is changing with DC Universe Online? (source)
Jens Andersen: There are a ton of things changing in DCUO right around the time of the PS4 launch - many of these will be available on all platforms.
First of all, players will see the amazing power of PS4 popping off the screen thanks to the art enhancements we made to the PS3 assets. The game looks and runs amazingly smooth - performance has really improved. We're targeting 1080p at 60 frames per second.
5w ago - Tribute Games Writer Yannick Belzil posted up a video today announcing Mercenary Kings is coming this Winter to PS4.
To quote: It's great for us at Tribute Games to be back at the ol' Playstation.Blog. Ah, has it been that long since our hotly commented post (16 scorching comments!) back in the summer of 2013?
We're simply thrilled to be part of Sony's indie line-up for PS4. Having been a part of the E3 presentation is still a big deal to us.
If you don't know us at Tribute Games, we're an indie developer way up in Montreal, Canada. We create classic-looking games with modern twists - in this case here, Mercenary Kings, which looks like a nice, old-fashioned, run-and-gun platformer from the bygone '80s and '90s... but it's actually ENHANCED with a deep weapon and item crafting system!
You can try to make your way and destroy C.L.A.W. (Cyber Loyalists Active Weapon) clan with your regular pistol, but as you progress through Mandragora Island and pick up materials, almost every character back at your HQ offers huge crafting possibilities. There are more than 300 gun parts to mix and match.
You could enhance your weapon's magazine capacity, or forge an elemental blade that can freeze your...
