4w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a PS4 video today and discussed Battlefield 4 Commanders on PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: With PS4's North American launch just days away, we wanted to provide a quick update on our experiences with Battlefield 4 and show off our new interview with DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson - watch it below.
On the PS4 multiplayer side, Battlefield 4 boasts an impressive visual presentation, rendering atmospheric lighting and lavish weather effects you won't see on the PS3 version. The game's visual variety is a major strength: I waged war across a startling array of environments, from Flood Zone's waterlogged alleyways to Golmud Railway's dazzling blue skies and emerald fields.
Throughout it all, the multiplayer side zoomed along at or near 60 frames per second, giving the game a brisk, responsive feel that gives the game's infantry combat a huge shot in the arm.
Of course, vehicular combat is a huge part of Battlefield's appeal, and BF4's jets, tanks, jeeps, and boats don't disappoint.

5w ago - HumaNature Studios Founder Greg Johnson made available a video today on discovering humanity in Doki-Doki Universe which arrives this December.
To quote: Greetings fellow humans! I'm Greg Johnson (creator of Toejam and Earl) and I run HumaNature Studios, the small Northern Ca. studio that has been busy building Doki-Doki Universe for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. I hope you'll enjoy seeing the trailer and pretty soon, our game.
I'm here today to talk a bit about how we're creating Doki Doki Universe, which will be available in December 2013 for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
In Doki-Doki Universe you play the role of a forlorn little robot named Model QT377665 (QT3 for short). You have been abandoned by your human family and are about to get scrapped by the factory that made you, unless you can prove that you're able to learn more about what it means to be human.
On your journey to become more human, you travel across planets and meet all sorts of crazy characters to help solve their problems. You can even take fun personality quizzes where the doctor will evaluate your progress. Along the way, we hope you find something out about yourself too.

To quote: Simplicity v2.58 - A Simple Kind of Loader - Brought to you by StephenCapes
Simplicity is a modified version of the well known backup loaded “Iris Manager”. The source version I started with is v2.58 by Estwald. The main reason for this fork was to simplify the GUI and make it look a little more polished. This is my first PS3 Homebrew release so go easy on me and let me know areas I could improve.
