Sony Goes Hands On with The Last of Us Remastered on PS4

50°
7w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Manager Sid Shuman goes hands-on today with The Last of Us Remastered PS4 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: With [Register or Login to view links]'s PS4 release just weeks away (July 29th), I dove into a pre-release version of the game to see exactly how Naughty Dog is leveraging PS4's hardware to upgrade last year's biggest Game of the Year winner.

First, there's the immediately noticeable bump in native screen resolution. The jump from 720p (PS3) to native 1080p (PS4) gives the visuals a major shot in the arm. The crisp new presentation banishes those nasty jaggies to the margins, while higher resolution environment textures adorn the lovingly crafted post-apocalyptic environments.

But the kicker is the new framerate. I'll admit to being at least a bit skeptical on hearing that Naughty Dog would target a smoother, more fluid 60 frames per second for The Last of Us Remastered. I wondered whether it would add a distracting layer of artificiality, that it might somehow interfere with the game's cinematic look and feel.

Luckily, based on my hands-on experiences at a recent media event in New York City, those concerns...
 

Borderlands 2 PS Vita Update Out Today, Improved Stability & Control

100°
11w ago - Sony Third Party Production Director Gio Corsi announced that the Borderlands 2 PS Vita update is out today, which features improved stability and control.

To quote: It's been a few weeks since we launched Borderlands 2 for PS Vita and so far we've been overwhelmed by the community response.

We're happy to announce that title update 1.04 is available today, which should further improve the overall Borderlands 2 PS Vita experience and addresses some of the feedback from you the fans.

•We've worked with Iron Galaxy Studios to improve stability and performance throughout the game, including addressing known issues with audio playback.

•Gyroscopic controls can now be independently inverted. This should ensure that fans of inverted vertical look will also be able to enjoy Gyroscopic aiming as well!

•There are now scaling sliders for rear touch inputs in the Options menu. Many users mapped lesser used actions to the rear touch but reported that in gripping their PS Vita systems, they'd still accidentally trigger those inputs. Users can now scale the input area down to much smaller zones, mitigating this.

•Lastly, we've addressed an issue where players were not notified that their online session had expired, which caused players to incorrectly appear...

Video: Hands-on with The Order: 1886 PS4 on PlayStation 4

50°
14w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with a PS4 video showcasing The Order: 1886 on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Sir Galahad stands with his back against a pillar, gunfire peppering his cover from the balcony above. I blink. For a moment, I've forgotten that The Order: 1886 on PS4 is running in front of me, and control has already shifted back to the DualShock 4 in my hands.

There is no camera crew following the brave knight through the besieged streets of London. There is only the highly cinematic third-person shooter that Ready At Dawn Studios has crafted from its own interpretation of Arthurian lore.

Dozens of details contribute to The Order's palpable realness. Every action taken and word spoken has been captured by actors. Coats flutter as the knights stride down alleyways and through dimly lit houses. Lamps collect dirt and flicker on countertops, nearly forgotten. Dogs bark in the distance between the sound of combat. The Order: 1886 puts the player squarely in the center of this conflict.





As Galahad moves through London in an effort to suppress threats to the crown, many of his actions are interactive. Players can snatch up a discarded map and turn it over with...
