3w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman made available a video today while talking to Hideo Kojima about Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes on PS4.
To quote: Set after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker but before those of the upcoming MGS5: The Phantom Pain, MGS5: Ground Zeroes gives the player total control over how, where, and when to execute espionage-focused operations.
Playing as Snake, aka Big Boss, players will sneak into enemy encampments, stalk targets, interrogate enemy agents, and recover secret intel while piecing together the game's story mission by mission. The result is an open, fluid adventure that will play out a little differently each time.
On PS4, Kojima's proprietary FOX Engine coats the game in a convincing layer of next-gen grit. Eerily lifelike character animations bring new punch to the game's CQC, while a new global lighting system means that day and night pass realistically, complete with changes to guard behavior and visibility.
Engine brings a host of other benefits, including an upgraded weapon physics system that accounts for bullet drop. This will be a profound change for fans of the tranquilizer gun and other low-powered projectile weapons, which now require far more finesse to use at extreme distances.
4w ago - Compulsion Games Producer Derek Elliott announced that Contrast is out today on PS4, and is free for PlayStation Plus Members.
To quote: Contrast, our PS4 launch title, is out today. If you were born in the '70s (as I was), or have watched "Arrested Development," you'll know the song "The Final Countdown." It is cornily (Is that a word?) appropriate when your game is close to launch status.
It can pump you up and can also bring you back to all the good and bad that was the '80s. Much simpler times when two programmers would make all of the design, art, animation, sound, and code for a game. And back then, game design counted for something. Be damned you kids these days and your fancy save games and discs you don't have to blow on to play.
Games like Paperboy, Dig Dug, and - one of my personal favorites - Racing Destruction Set were profoundly fun because they were simple. But simple didn't mean easy. These games somehow got made because of a genuine fire to develop something new and have fun in a brand new industry.
The early Godfathers of video games were passionate because they accomplished something special, were published, and people responded to their creations.
4w ago - DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic announced today that Battlefield 4 is out today on PlayStation 4 with a fresh PS4 video trailer below.

4w ago - Housemarque Community Manager Tommaso De Benetti announced today that Resogun is out now on PS4 / PlayStation 4 with details below.
To quote: To celebrate the official release of RESOGUN and PS4 in North America, I am delighted to to share yet more details about the game, from the team at Housemarque, and of course, some more great explosions!
I know a lot of readers skip right ahead to the videos, but I am going to start with a piece of concept art, depicting a whole bunch of initial enemy designs.
A few of these may not have made the cut for the final game but most of them lie in wait for you to blast them to pieces.
Did I mention blasting? Ok, it's definitely time for some explosions then and the most epic RESOGUN video yet!
