5w ago - Housemarque's Mikael Haveri shared some video footage today inside the explosions of Resogun on PS4 / PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: As final platform testing comes to an end, I'm here on behalf of Housemarque to share some new footage and a few development insights for Resogun, our incredible new shoot-em-up launching alongside PS4 on November 15th.
First off, a short video from the team telling you exactly what Resogun is about.
As the guys explained in the video, everything in Resogun is constructed from gazillions (too many to count) of 3D bricks/cubes, known as voxels.
Voxels aren't particularly new, but it's difficult and time consuming to build intricate structures with them, so designing the game worlds of Resogun has been a really interesting challenge.
Here (below) are some images showing some test buildings that we created.
The final worlds are, of course, much more sophisticated, but the cool thing these images illustrate is that the entire world in Resogun is literally a huge pile of bricks, begging to be blown up at any given moment. And one of the best things about Resogun is that stuff blows up all the time, and when stuff blows up in Resogun, it blows up BIG!
5w ago - Digital Extremes Associate Producer Pat Kudirka detailed the PS4 pre-order bonuses today for Warframe on the PlayStation 4 video gaming system below.
To quote: We are less than a week away from the PS4 launch, and the Digital Extremes' team has been hard at work polishing up Warframe and getting it ready for its debut on launch day, when players turn on their PS4s for the first time. We're imagining the squeals of delight at the thought of firing that baby up on Day 1... ZOMG!
So, what have we been up to? In addition to working on the game, we've also been coming up with ways to help PS4 players get into the game quickly. Not too long ago, we released our special Warframe: Ultimate Fan Pack - a pre-order Pack specifically for PlayStation fans that includes an exclusive PlayStation Braton Rifle weapon skin, 50 Platinum, and 20,000 Credits.
With this pack you'll be able to get a step ahead of the enemy, and take advantage of items in the Market utilizing your Credits and Platinum (and look good doing it with your PlayStation branded Braton Rifle). Oh, and did we mention the pre-order and everything in the pack are absolutely free?
To get this pack on launch day (or when you get your PS4), you'll have to pre-order Warframe either through SEN on the web, or through PlayStation...
7w ago - Following up on his previous update, today Sony's Shuhei Yoshida discusses PS4 automatic game caching, voice commands without the PlayStation 4 PS Eye and more below!
To quote: Shuhei Yoshida via his personal Twitter account has revealed never heard before details about PlayStation 4.
Yoshida first confirmed that PlayStation 4 does automatic cashing to games, and its not the mandatory install. This is really huge news for Playstation 4, it basically mean, if you want to play CoD Ghosts and Killzone, you won't need 100GB of space (50GB each,) you'll just need 50GB to cache them. That's so cool!
David Magalhaes (DiamondDM13): Sorry to ask this here, but I'm confused. Does the PS4 have mandatory game installs to the HDD? Or is that optional?
Shuhei Yoshida (yosp): it's automatic, not install but caching data
Furthermore, Yoshida went on to confirmed Voice Commands are available without PlayStation Eye i.e via available via Mic and DualShock 4 controller.
Jefferson Keane (Jefferson_Keane): Voice commands are available without PS eye ? I mean with the mic and the DS4 ?
7w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with The Witness on PlayStation 4 with a fresh PS4 video trailer below, as follows:
Shortly after I heard the phrase "PlayStation 4" for the very first time, I received a blog post, a batch of screenshots and a trailer for a game called The Witness, from legendary game designer, Jonathan Blow. This was my first exposure to the impending next generation of video games.
My excitement for The Witness may, admittedly, be amplified by my sentimental nature (it is the first PS4 game I ever laid eyes on, after all). After getting a chance to play it at an event last week, however, I'm relieved to know that my excitement is justified.
Jonathan Blow helped to bring mainstream attention to the indie game development movement with his modern classic, Braid, which famously twisted the minds of gamers worldwide into knots. As such, it should be expected that the challenges you'll face in The Witness will put your mental capacity to the test.
Thankfully, you won't jump straight into the mind-numbing brain-twisters - The Witness is designed in such a way that you'll be gradually introduced...
