Video: Sony Goes Hands-on with NBA 2K14 on PS4 / PlayStation 4

50°
49w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 4 complete with a PS4 video below.

To quote: The dedicated team behind the next-gen edition of NBA 2K14 has an eye for detail. And not just a normal, everyday eye; they have hundreds of eyes, hell-bent on making this the best basketball experience in video game history.

Their passion just about bled onto the floor of a crowded San Francisco bar earlier this week as they presented NBA 2K14 running on PS4. It was easy to see, from the first trailer to the final multiplayer tease, that NBA 2K14 is visually arresting, and damn fun to play.

As the footage of NBA 2K14 looped over the massive bar displays, the team were insistent that the PS4 version was not a simple port job. It was built from the ground up for next-gen tech, and they made their point by announcing the brand new engine powering the action: Ecomotion.

The art assets in NBA 2K14 have been built from scratch - not a single legacy piece of art remains from the current-gen version. As Studio Art Director Anton Dawson said at the demonstration, making this look like a real, next-gen basketball game came down to "thousands of little things, and the interconnectedness of those thousands of little things."

Video: Sony President Shuhei Yoshida on DriveClub PS4 Update

50°
50w ago - Today Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida shared details and video footage on a DriveClub PS4 update for fans.

To quote: SCE Worldwide Studios and the team at Evolution Studios have made the difficult decision to delay the release of DRIVECLUB and DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition until early 2014.

DRIVECLUB will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision - and I'm fully confident the game will surpass your expectations.

This decision also affects PlayStation Plus members' Instant Game Collection for launch. To be clear, DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released.

For the PS4 launch, in addition to Resogun, I'm pleased to announce that Contrast, the highly anticipated game from Compulsion Games will also be available to PlayStation Plus members for free as part of Instant Game Collection.

If you're not aware of Contrast, it will whisk you away to a surreal vaudevillian, film-noir inspired reality full of performance, intrigue, shadow-play and drama. Please check out the trailer below. I'm sure you'll agree that it is unlike anything you will have played before.

Video: Sony PlayStation 4 Interface, PS4 Overview & Features Demo

50w ago - Today ElitePixelEnemyHD has made available a 16-minute video of Sony's PlayStation 4 interface, including a PS4 overview and its features demonstrated.

Check it out below, and to quote: "We have gotten a new video which details the PlayStation 4 UI and goes in detail of the interface.

This video comes courtesy of ElitePixelEnemyHD and is unfortunately kind of blurry but it really gives an extensive tour of the PlayStation 4 UI and its various menus.





The UI looks pretty simple and clean to me. More like an evolution of PS3 UI. They also show the browser and it seems to be a step above what was on PS3.

The original video is from GamekyoLive and is a 1 hour extensive walkthrough of PlayStation 4 and its games. It also has a cleaner sound as opposed to the above video."




Finally, below is another PlayStation 4 at Gamers Day'13 PS4 Overview from Izhan Shafiq via YouTube, as follows:

Sony PlayStation Store Reveals New PS4 Digital DRM Policy Details

500°
50w ago - Now that you can pre-order PlayStation 4 titles such as [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] on Sony's PSN Store, they have adapted a new PS4 digital DRM (Digital Rights Management) policy as detailed below.

To quote: "With the PlayStation Store, you can download your games to two systems. However, playing those games is a different story. When you're on your primary system, the one you use all the time, you can play as you normally would.

But to play on another system, the owner of the game must be signed into his or her PSN account. So for instance if I go to a friend's house and want to play Knack, I need to stay signed into my PSN account in order for us to continue playing. If I am on my PS4, I can play it without signing in.

This is different from the current digital DRM practice with the PS3 where you can download on up to two systems, but don't need to be signed in with the purchasing account to play said game.

The PlayStation 4 will be available in the US on November 15th and Europe on November 29th."
