37w 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.

Backgammon Blitz is Coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita This Winter

38w ago - The Fyzz Facility Head of Mobile Manager Robert Karp confirmed today that Backgammon Blitz is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this Winter.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi! I'm Rob Karp. You may remember me from my role as producer at XDev Studio, where I worked on a number of Sony's first-party games over the years.

Today I want to tell you about my latest venture, which is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this winter. It's called Backgammon Blitz, and it's a game I'm pumped for.

Backgammon has been played for centuries by gamers young, old, and ancient. It appears to be a simple game about getting your checkers around the board before your opponent, but has immense layers of depth and strategy to it.

I'm just the messenger, of course. The talented folks behind this lovely little title are VooFoo Studios. Having made a name for themselves with Hustle Kings and Pure Chess, Backgammon feels like a step onwards and upwards for the studio, taking all of their strengths (gorgeous art design, a subtle but stylish approach to UI) and none of their weaknesses (cake night every Friday) into the next generation of platforms.

The team are so keen to whet your appetite for the world of backgammon that they're offering a trial version of the game that'll teach you the...

39w ago - EA Community Manager Jessica Damerst announced today that Need for Speed Rivals is coming to PS4 on November 15th, 2013.

To quote: The wait for a next-gen games is getting unbearable! And our team at Ghost Games has been pushing themselves to be a part of PlayStation's big launch day. We're excited to announce today that Need for Speed Rivals will be a launch title for PS4 in North America on November 15th.

We're stoked to be the first racing game on PS4, and believe we're setting a new bar for driving gameplay and visuals. PS4, coupled with the Frostbite 3 engine, will give players unparalleled next-gen gaming - epic locations and vistas, stunning time of day and weather changes, and super high fidelity cars.

But we're not just about looks - what's under the hood counts, too! With Rivals, we're introducing AllDrive, a new feature which allows players to choose seamlessly between single player, co-op, or multiplayer, and a completely new way for you to play Need for Speed.

Share Your AllDrive Moments on PS4

Even as we play Need for Speed Rivals, we can never be sure what'll happen next. Just recently in a Pursuit race, one of the racers dropped a stun mine at the bottom of a jump - another car landed right on top, wiped out, spun out of control, finally...
 

PS4 Virtual Reality Headset to be Revealed at TGS 2013

47w ago - According to CVG (linked above), Sony is preparing to reveal the final piece of its PlayStation 4 hardware strategy at TGS (Tokyo Game Show) 2013 by showcasing a PlayStation-branded virtual reality headset for the upcoming PS4 console.

To quote: "It originally intended to reveal the headset at Gamescom but plans fell through at the eleventh hour. The company is currently weighing up whether the PS4 device should be pitched as a key differentiator for the console or a non-essential add-on.

The matter has been slightly complicated, but not derailed, by the growing industry support for Oculus Rift. Sony's device will be a categorical rival to Oculus, and for months there have been rumours suggesting the two companies are seeking a partnership.

A games developer familiar with Sony's plans, who wished to remain anonymous, told CVG that Evolution Studios is currently working with the device to simulate a cockpit view on its PS4 title Drive Club.

Another developer claimed the virtual reality headset resembles the 3D headset that Sony first revealed in January 2011. The head-mounted display will be available separately, like with the new PlayStation Eye, in order to keep the baseline PS4 price as low as possible.

In August, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida suggested...
