Video: Knack - A Brand New Platformer for PlayStation 4 / PS4

50°
96w ago - Game Director Mark Cerny has shared a video today unveiling Knack - a brand new platformer for PlayStation 4 / PS4.

To quote: It was a great pleasure to be able to introduce the title at the PlayStation Meeting in New York. With our new project, Knack, we are really trying to take advantage of everything that the PlayStation 4 supports, from the graphics capabilities of the platform to the physics simulation necessary to handle our very unique hero.

Over the years I've been involved in a number of character-based action titles - Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet & Clank - and with the gameplay of Knack, we're trying to focus on the essential fun behind the action/platform gameplay. I'm hoping that we can make something that excites those that played the classic games back in the day, as well as something that attracts new fans to the genre.

I'm sure you saw a lot of things in the trailer and might be wondering what exactly the game is all about.

1050°
96w ago - Following up on the PlayStation Cloud news, today Kotaku reports that according to their sources the PS4 / Orbis console will be out this November, and purportedly users will be able to control it with a phone.

Below are the rumor details, to quote: "A reliable Kotaku source has informed us that the PlayStation 4, codenamed Orbis, will be out this November in the United States.

Our source - the same reliable source who back in early 2012 told us the codename for Sony's next console and the codename for Microsoft's next console - tells us that there are two models planned for the new machine, and that pricing won't be announced until later this year, possibly around E3. The current plan, our source says, is to release them at $429 and $529, but that could change.

Although nothing is confirmed just yet, as we get closer and closer to the release of Orbis, which Sony is expected to officially announce during an event in New York City tomorrow night, we continue to hear more details about what will ship with the new hardware.
