Roll7: OlliOlli is Out Today on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3

50°
5d ago - General Dogsbody Simon Bennett at Roll7 announced that OlliOlli is officially out today on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: OlliOlli almost never happened. It was only a kick under the table from Studio Director Tom Hegarty that pushed Creative Director John Ribbins into taking the prototype out of his pocket in our first meeting with PlayStation. Shahid Ahmad at Strategic Content signed the game there and then and the rest, as they say, is history.

The game has since been a runaway hit on PS Vita, topping the charts, getting a GOTM, and sitting alongside AAA monsters in top game lists for 2014.

However, in hindsight celebrations on January 21st were a little more mixed at Roll7 HQ in Deptford, London. As the team sat together on launch of the game, news of a bug was already circulating with a handful of journalists - there was a genuine worry that the bug might affect a significant user base. We kept an eye online from the moment that the game hit and thankfully it appeared that only a few small number of users were affected.

The team was due to start work on an as-of-yet unannounced project, however we never questioned getting the bug fixed at all costs. Possibly it was naivety on our part, possibly it was stupidity - but we put...

6d ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with this weeks new PlayStation and PSN game releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

Thank you for your patience this weekend, and enjoy the belated Drop!

The smoke-slinging Delsin Rowe made a huge impact on Seattle during his quest for vengeance in inFAMOUS Second Son. But he wasn't the only Conduit stirring up trouble for the DUP.

Abigail "Fetch" Walker leveled her own deadly talents against those that wronged her, and her story continues in inFAMOUS First Light.

First Light hits PS4 this week as a standalone download from PlayStation Store. In it, players can explore Fetch's tragic past and her weaponization at the hands of the Department of Unified Protection.

This means even more neon abilities, new ways to traverse Seattle, and more insight into what makes Fetch so incredibly badass.

Of course, that's just one game coming to PlayStation this week. Read on for a complete list of new releases, and enjoy the Drop!

Video: Toy Soldiers: War Chest on PS4 - PlayStation 4 Hands-on

50°
6d ago - Sony Social Media Senior Manager Sid Shuman shared a PS4 video today showcasing Toy Soldiers: War Chest going hands-on with PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: If I'm frank, I wasn't really sure I was the right fit for this game. Mostly because I'd never played the earlier entries in the (well-respected) Toy Soldiers series, but also because toy collector culture doesn't much tickle my fancy.

So imagine my surprise when I went hands-on with Toy Soldiers: War Chest on PS4 and discovered not just a clever fusion of tower defense and third-person action, but a fiendishly addictive vortex that quickly reduced me to shrieking "kablammo! kablammo! boooosh!" while I bombarded hordes of rainbow ponies with mortars. Watch our new video above for the full story.

At its core, Toy Soldiers: War Chest is a classic tower defense game set in three-dimensional environments, a nice upgrade from the static 2D backdrops of most TD titles. You'll set up turrets in between waves of approaching enemies, feverishly upgrading and repairing them to prevent being overrun.

You earn gold by slaying incoming enemy hordes, then spend the proceeds on new specialized turrets (anti-armor, anti-infantry, anti-air) and fancy upgrades that increase your attack range, damage and so forth. So far, so good - it's...
