PlayStation 4 / PS4 Rumored to Use Real Names for Online Gaming

550°
95w ago - Today Kotaku reports that Sony's PlayStation 4 / PS4 console is rumored to use real names for online gaming.

Below are the details, to quote: "Among the bits of information dropped during last week's PlayStation 4 announcement was this from PS4 lead architect Mark Cerny, as he discussed the system's enhanced social features:

"With the PlayStation 4 we are transitioning to a friends network based on real world friends. We'll keep around the alias and icon used in today's multiplayer matches. These are great to have when anonymity is important. But most of the new social dimension to PS4 will be interacting with friends using real names and profile pictures most likely seeded from your existing social network."

Some crucial-sounding words in there: "Alias." "Real names." "Profile pictures." "Anonymity." But what exactly does all that mean? Like so many other things introduced at the PS4 event, it's not entirely clear.

Since its inception, the PlayStation Network has for the most part been a gateway to buying content and a loose way to connect with your friends to play games. But Sony appears set to turn their service into much more of a "proper" social network. And parts of that social network are going to involve your real name.

Let's scrounge for crumbs of information...

95w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared a video today recapping the PS4 / PlayStation 4 announcement featuring some of PlayStation's Top Game Creators below today.

To quote: One week ago, PlayStation 4 was announced in New York City in a presentation streamed by more than 12 million gamers.

We met the new DualShock 4 controller, soaked up some impressive hardware specs and services, and watched a barrage of upcoming PS4 games, from inFAMOUS: Second Son to Bungie's new title Destiny.

During the presentation, Lead System Architect Mark Cerny remarked that the PS4 was made "by game creators, for game creators."

To test that theory, we met with two of PlayStation's top game creators, SCE World Wide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida and SCEA World Wide Studios Senior Vice President Scott Rohde, to see which of PS4′s new features has them most inspired.

To quote: Being a small developer like [Register or Login to view links] can sometimes force us to take things a bit more slowly, and this is why we are both apologizing for taking so long to start making games for PlayStation 3, and why we're hoping you'll welcome us with big ol' greasy hugs when we get there. You see, we have something very special with Runner2, and we're incredibly excited to share it with you on PSN on March 5th.

Also, if you're brave and keep reading, you might find a little nugget of gold at the end of this blog post...

The Magic of Runner2

While working on the original BIT.TRIP series, we knew we had something special, and we loved making those six games. But it wasn't until all was said and done and we had time to reflect on the mess we'd made when we realized that BIT.TRIP RUNNER was one of the funnest projects we'd ever worked on, and as we contemplated our next steps, we looked at each other and thought, "You know, I bet we could murder peoples' fun-glands with a sequel to this beaut."
