Rumor: PlayStation 4 (PS4) to Debut in 2013, Codenamed Orbis?

800°
107w ago - Today Kotaku (linked above) reports that Sony is rumored to debut the PlayStation 4 (PS4) next-generation console in 2013 which is currently assumed to be codenamed as Orbis.

While PS4.SCEDev.net does not currently work, the URL Orbis.SCEDev.net currently resolves to Sony's developer network Web site.

To quote: "While the official reveal of Sony's next home console could still be months away, if not longer, Kotaku has today learned some important details concerning the PlayStation 3's successor.

For one, the console's name- or at least its codename/working title- is apparently Orbis. And it's being planned for release in time for the 2013 holiday season.

The details in this story come from a reliable source who is not authorized to talk publicly about next-gen hardware but has shared correct information with us before. What they're telling us in specifics matches much of what we've heard and reported in generalities in recent weeks.

A Sony spokesperson declined to comment about these details, citing the company's policy not to comment on "rumors or speculation."

WHAT'S IN A NAME

Orbis. Say it out loud. Sounds a little like the word "four", doesn't it? Only it doesn't make the next PlayStation sound like a bad horror movie sequel.
 

Stickmen Studios Announce Doc Clock Coming to PlayStation Store

100°
107w ago - Stickmen Studios Head of Projects Henry Lane has announced today that Doc Clock is coming to Sony's PlayStation Store with details below.

To quote: Yes that's right; the Doc Clock universe will soon be available to everyone from PlayStation Store.

This is your opportunity to join Doc Clock and his super sarcastic robot companion, SACK, on their first time-traveling adventure.

Save Doc Clock's pet cat Franklin from spending the rest of his life as a potted Cactus.

Build incredible inventions, contort the flow of time and navigate a future controlled by armies of laughably dangerous techno-phobic hippy robots.

Now slow down a second... we're talking about a pet cat... spending his life as a potted plant?! Yes! Well, "Catcus" is more accurate; Doc Clock's inventions have been known to have a slightly limited safety track record. And by 'slightly limited' we mean nonexistent.

Needless to say it was Doc Clock's attempt to make the world's most awesome 'Toasted Sandwich Machine' which resulted in Franklin mutating into a very prickly situation!

Everyone experienced in turning their cat into a photosynthetic hedgehog will know the most logical step to remedying the situation is... to build a time travelling machine. Obviously.

107w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today that their reVITAlized PSP price drop event is now live on PSN.

To quote: We (the fine people at Atlus) are dropping prices on our PlayStation Store library of PSP system titles, not unlike the PS Vita's undocumented ability to drop smaller articles of sub-clothing. We're calling it...

Want to own the complete PSP Persona collection, including Persona 3 Portable, which is tied for the second-best-reviewed PSP game of ALL TIME, according to Gamerankings.com?

It is now far more affordable to do so. Also getting a drop in price is the very recent Persona 2: Innocent Sin, a stunning handheld remake of one our company's most highly anticipated games!

Always been a fan of Sting's series of Dept Heaven RPG and SRPG genre-benders? Perhaps you've always been curious to see how Knights in the Nightmare, with its incredibly novel blend of tactical roleplaying and bullet-hell action, looks and plays?

Well, for less than half the price of a new console game, you can own every PSP Dept Heaven game we've ever released (which should set you up nicely for the upcoming June release of Gungnir for PSP, the next entry in the acclaimed series).

Besides the aforementioned two collections,...
