Video: How DriveClub Aims to Make Rage-quitting Extinct on PS4

50°
8w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton outlined how they plan to make rage-quitting extinct in DriveClub DriveClub on PS4 today.

To quote: We've all been there. You're tearing round the last lap in, say, Gran Turismo or Need For Speed, defending a narrow lead over the chasing pack, when your concentration slips for a second and you find your car buried in a hedge.

With the race all but lost and any rewards snatched away, it's understandable that throwing a quick tantrum and furiously jabbing Options > Quit Race can be an instinctive reaction.

The racing game rage-quit is a real conundrum for designers - not only does it rip you out of the game and compromise your enjoyment, but it also inhibits the integrity of the online multiplayer experience. Duly, it's an obstacle that Evolution Studios is tackling head on in DRIVECLUB on PS4.

"I like the idea that that you don't have to be in first place," explained Game Director Paul Rustchynsky when we stopped by the studio last week. "I want everybody to enjoy the thrill of racing."

"I play a lot of racing games and I'm a pretty good driver, but I'm not always the guy who's in first place. I like to have fun and take risks, rather than obsess about perfecting every single corner. The problem for drivers like me, and I think we're...
 

PS4 Game Genie in Development via PS Vita Remote Play Loophole

350°
8w ago - Following up on news of the Game Genie for PS3, today Hyperkin Product Manager Chris Gallizzi revealed that a PS Vita Remote Play security loophole in the PS4's design may allow them to bring their Game Genie cheat device to the PlayStation 4.

While this may not be related to the rumored PS4 vulnerability or purported PS4 exploit found, it does sound promising indeed using a hidden Wi-Fi signal to detect a backdoor entry to the system!

To quote: GAME GENIE EYES PLAYSTATION 4

In 2012, just over two decades after its creation, Game Genie made a quiet return to market. It had a new look and a new company backing it, and it operated in a completely different style than its predecessors. This new Game Genie, developed by Hyperkin for the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS, modified your save game...
 

Video: Hands-on with The Order: 1886 PS4 on PlayStation 4

50°
8w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with a PS4 video showcasing The Order: 1886 on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Sir Galahad stands with his back against a pillar, gunfire peppering his cover from the balcony above. I blink. For a moment, I've forgotten that The Order: 1886 on PS4 is running in front of me, and control has already shifted back to the DualShock 4 in my hands.

There is no camera crew following the brave knight through the besieged streets of London. There is only the highly cinematic third-person shooter that Ready At Dawn Studios has crafted from its own interpretation of Arthurian lore.

Dozens of details contribute to The Order's palpable realness. Every action taken and word spoken has been captured by actors. Coats flutter as the knights stride down alleyways and through dimly lit houses. Lamps collect dirt and flicker on countertops, nearly forgotten. Dogs bark in the distance between the sound of combat. The Order: 1886 puts the player squarely in the center of this conflict.





As Galahad moves through London in an effort to suppress threats to the crown, many of his actions are interactive. Players can snatch up a discarded map and turn it over with...
 

Video: Aaru's Awakening is Coming to PS4 and PS3 This Summer

50°
8w ago - Lumenox ehf Marketing Director Johann Ingi Gudjonsson announced that Aaru's Awakening is coming to PS4 and PS3 this Summer with a video trailer below!

To quote: When Aaru's Awakening started out as a school project at the University of Reykjavík, we wanted to create an original platformer. The genre is congested, so new ideas are essential. Inspired by the teleportation gun in Unreal Tournament, we came up with the idea of a teleportation themed platformer.

When the project moved from being a mere school project to winning the Icelandic Gaming Industry Game Creator competition - and thus giving us the funding to start a company around the game - we realized that we'd have to do something more than just rely on the teleportation mechanic.

That's when we decided to add the charging mechanic that would serve as a double jump and make certain objects breakable, as it would add fluidity to the game and allow for some intense in-air moments. We also knew that to really grab the attention of gamers we'd have to create an original art style, so the art director proposed we'd do it completely hand drawn.





When implementing the teleportation mechanic we were focused on having it deeply intertwined with the...
