Baseball is Better: MLB 14 The Show PS4 Screens, Release Details

50°
31w ago - Sony Community Manager Ramone Russell of San Diego Studios shared new information today on MLB 14 The Show including PS4 screens and PlayStation 4 release details below.

To quote: We know anticipation is high, especially given we're making our next-gen debut this season, and this week we were able to share a glimpse of what we've been working on for the past 10 months. Here's a look at some of the things we've got planned for MLB 14 The Show.

I've been asked what our goals are this year, and the answer is simple. Everyone on our team takes great pride in chasing our goal of producing the perfect sports game. It's what has made The Show the highest rated sports franchise over the last 8 years.

We've already covered some of what's new this year in our previous post here on the PlayStation.Blog. To recap: there are more than 50 new features and improvements that will enhance, deepen, streamline, and better your overall experience.

Quick Counts will cut game completion times in half. A new UI, built from the ground up for PS4 (but carried over across all versions) has been optimized for maximum efficiency and responsiveness.

Here's Mike Napoli on PS4 (top) vs. PS3 (bottom). Note the revamped lighting engine, meticulously rendered facial hair, and rich stadium detail.
 

Rumor: PS Vita Slim Set for Release in Europe and North America?

50°
34w ago - IGN reports that Sony has invited press to an exclusive breakfast briefing with PlayStation next Thursday, January 30th, where it is rumored that they will unveil a PS Vita Slim (or perhaps a PS Vita TV international release) for Europe and North American regions.

The invitation (below) reads, to quote: "You are invited to an exclusive breakfast briefing with PlayStation.

Following the biggest launch in PlayStation history, join us for an introduction to the slimmest.

When: Thursday 30th January 2014 | 09:00-11:00"

The PS Vita Slim is already available in Japan, and is 20 percent thinner than the existing model, as well as being 15 percent lighter.

It does away with the OLED screen for a 5-inch LCD display, which helps the battery to supposedly last up to an hour longer. The Japanese one is available in six different colors too, though we've yet to see if that's replicated in the west.

Of course the announcement could be about something else entirely, but the Vita Slim seems to be the sensible option, especially given the new appeal the handheld has thanks to the PS4's remote play functionality.

Having only just launched the PS4, it's exceedingly unlikely that Sony would announced a slim version of the console right now as they traditionally...

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD PS3 Release Date is Announced

50°
47w ago - Ubisoft Sofia Producer Momchil Valentinov Gindyanov announced the Assassin's Creed Liberation HD PS3 release date and some additional details below today.

To quote: Greetings, PlayStation Assassins! We're very excited to announce that Assassins Creed Liberation HD will be coming to PS3 via PlayStation Store on 15th January 2014.

When we set out to do Liberation HD, our objective was simple: improve upon what worked on the Vita and adapt the gameplay and missions to be the most fun and enjoyable they could be. As a result, each mission has been reworked in order to improve its pacing, and the challenge it poses to the player.

Liberation is set in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780, in the period between the end of the French and Indian War, up to the middle of the American Revolution.

Liberation tells the story of Aveline; a female Assassin of mixed French and African heritage. Brought up in a world of privilege and contrasts, Aveline becomes a strong-willed woman and an avid opponent of slavery.

Recruited to the Assassins by an escaped slave, Aveline joins the struggle against the Templars as they try to take control of New Orleans following France's handover of the city to Spain. Striking hard and fast, she is instrumental in the Louisiana Rebellion that forces...
