100°
6w ago - Sony VP of Platforms Marketing John Koller announced at E3 2014 today that several new free-to-play titles are coming to PlayStation!

Below are all the details, to quote: We firmly believe that the best game development ideas can come from anywhere and anyone, and as the brand that stands for gamers, we want to make it easy for gamers to step outside of their comfort zones and experience these new types of games.

Tonight at our E3 Press Conference, we announced more good news for gamers: with the help of our amazing Worldwide Studios team and third-party partners, PlayStation is introducing a robust catalogue of Free-to-Play (F2P) games with a goal of offering more ways for gamers to discover and connect with a larger variety of titles and experiences.

The PlayStation F2P initiative will give gamers the opportunity to try a variety of games that they may have not otherwise played, at no cost or financial commitment. We'll leave it up to you, the gamer, to decide how much you want to invest in the game.

The development community was central to PS4 platform development and ultimately has helped us create an expansive library of unique experiences. The F2P initiative is another testament to what makes PlayStation a leader in the industry. From Triple-A blockbusters like...

50°
6w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced that Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is free for PS Plus Members as part of this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates below.

To quote: Everyone's favorite raccoon thief is back in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Fans of the original series can get reacquainted with the gang - Carmelita, Bentley and Murray.

Since burglary is usually a stealth-oriented affair you can choose to stick to rooftops and shadows, or if you're feeling a bit more aggressive you can take a more head-on approach with your trusty cane. Bonus - Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is a cross-buy title, so Plus members will get both the PS3 and Vita versions.

We've got a bundle of new discounts as well, including a variety of sports titles and our E3 sale, which features titles that have appeared at past conferences.

You can download Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, June 10th.

Reaper is Coming to PlayStation Vita as Free-to-Play Action RPG

50°
7w ago - Creative Director Luc Bernard announced today alongside a PlayStation Vita video trailer that Reaper is coming to PS Vita as a free-to-play action RPG!

To quote: Hello, I'm Luc Bernard. I'm the creative director, and art director, and - well - I look after many other roles on Reaper for PS Vita. Now this is my first time doing a post on Playstation.Blog, so it may sound a bit all over the place!

I don't know if anyone remembers, but years ago Reaper was announced back in 2010 for Playstation Portable. The title had to be put on hold for a while sadly, but now it's back. I'd say it's a great thing that I waited this long to resume development and show it to the world.

Reaper is a free-to-play title exclusive to PlayStation Vita. Personally the Vita is my favorite portable system for many reasons, which I don't think I need to go into since you Vita owners already know them.





Now let's talk about the gameplay. Reaper is an action RPG platformer, so you'll be leveling up, pulling off combos, destroying enemies, and all those kind of things.

But what makes it unique is the card system. Now don't worry, it's not like those mobile games that have cards where you can't do anything with them -...

50°
7w ago - Edge of Reality Creative Director Mark Nau announced that PS4 console exclusive Loadout is coming to PlayStation 4, is free to play and includes billions of weapon combos!

To quote: Greetings, PlayStation folks! My name is Mark Nau, and I'm the Creative Director at Edge of Reality. We're the folks who made Loadout, a game about resolving your differences by blasting, burning, and/or exploding anybody who disagrees with you.

I know you PS4 fans are a pretty tight-knit community, but let's face it - once in a while, you're going to feel the need to shoot somebody's legs off, and I'm proud to announce that we're giving you billions of ways to do that.

In case you haven't already guessed from the blog title or that introduction, we're bringing Loadout as a console exclusive to PlayStation 4!





Loadout is a game that lets you concoct the weapon of your dreams and/or nightmares from hundreds of component parts, and share their payloads with your friends in fast-paced matches, with violently comedic results. Giant death beam?

We've got it covered. Bouncy Tesla balls? Sure. Laser-guided cluster-bomb rockets? Hey, we're not here to judge. Loadout has literally billions of different weapon combinations,...
 

PlayStation Plus: Trine 2, PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, NBA 2K14 Free

100°
7w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates, which include Trine 2, PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, and NBA 2K14 free for PS Plus members!

To quote: A rogue, a wizard and a knight are the best of friends (well, they work together at least) in Trine 2: Complete Story.

You'll either play as all three characters, rotating between them as you need their unique abilities, or you can grab a couple friends to take control of the two other heroes. Of course, you might all be too busy drooling at the art to solve any puzzles, but that's okay.

In case you missed it in the PS Plus June Preview, you'll be happy to see that there's another PS4 game free this month. PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is a combination of the well-loved twin-stick shooter games (PixelJunk Shooter and PixelJunk Shooter 2) that released on PS3.

Not only is the Ultimate version cross-buy, which means Plus members will also get the Vita version, but it includes cross-save and cross-play functionality.

Last, but not least, we've got NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 3 for you - just in time for the NBA Finals. LeBron James stars in the new Path to Greatness Mode, where you can suit up as the reigning NBA champion and develop your own future for him.
