Sony PlayStation 4 Development Unit / PS4 Dev Kit is Unveiled

550°
75w ago - Recently we reported on a Sony DUH-D1000AA PS4 Dev Kit FCC filing, and now Gizmodo (linked above) has made available a picture of what a PlayStation 4 development unit looks like.

Below are the details, to quote: "The cat may already be out of the bag, but for many months we didn't know what the PS4 looked like.

Now, we know what the retail version will look, but what about the developer box Sony hid during the big reveal and on Jimmy Fallon? Well, here's an exclusive image we've acquired of some developer boxes that were used at E3.

Like any PC you'd build yourself, the guts are what actually matter and in the case of game consoles, the developer units typically just hide final console design. They're never really that attractive, which is the exact opposite of what we'll be seeing this holiday season."

75w ago - Today Brian Fleming at Sucker Punch Productions posted up some video footage of conversations with creators from Infamous Second Son on PS4.

To quote: Hope everyone is enjoying their summer outdoors in the nice weather! We've been looking through our windows with envy as we continue working hard on Second Son.

Last time we checked in, we were debuting a trailer and a taste of Delsin's smoke abilities at E3... It was really exciting for us to see the response from all of you - and we were also grateful to leave E3 with an armload of nominations and awards from the media.

It all was a nice lift for us as we continue to try to make Delsin's story in Seattle into something special...

Here's something else for you to take a look at, another entry in the "Conversation with Creators" series. The crew behind these came up and interviewed us about what it's like making PS4 games, and our experiences with the DualShock 4 controller (which is great, by the way!).

In addition to myself, Sucker Punch senior staff members Nate Fox, Jaime Griesemer and Horia Dociu discuss what developing Second Son has been like, and some of the things we're each excited about...
