22w ago - Today AllGames.com (linked above) reports that Sony's PS4 / PlayStation 4 release date of November 30, 2013 has been revealed by a kiosk in a local Best Buy retail store.
Previously, Sony stated that the PS4 / PlayStation 4 release date would be officially unveiled at Gamescom in Cologne from August 21-25, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: "Exactly when will the PS4 be released?
The answer lies in what I would describe as an impressive pre-order display touch screen system located at a particular Best Buy I went to recently. Using the touch screen, you can pre-order video games and/or the new video game systems.
While I was at Best Buy, using the touch screen, I decided, on a whim, to select the video game consoles category since I was curious as to what would be displayed for the PS4. I touched the screen that showed a picture of the PS4 - when lo and behold - I saw it! There before me on the big screen was the release date for the PS4.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so take a look and you will see what I saw as the availability, release, or launch date for the PS4. Rather than me telling you the date - check out the visual below. Pre-order touch screen at Best Buy shows availability date for the PS4 as 11/30/2013.
27w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared details today on the Rain: the story behind 2013's most intriguing PSN release below.
To quote: Hopefully you found the time last week to take a look at the haunting new trailer for Rain - the new adventure game from Japan Studio heading to PlayStation 3 later this year.
It's shaping up to be one of the most intriguing PSN titles of the year, channeling the same sense of freewheeling creativity that made Journey, The Unfinished Swan and Tokyo Jungle such stand-out experiences.
The setup is simple - you play as a lone boy who finds himself alone in a mysterious rain-soaked city. The twist? He's completely invisible, except for the outline of the precipitation running off his body.
You'll guide him through this strange world as he goes in pursuit of a girl who's seemingly suffering the exact same predicament, while also trying to evade malevolent hostile forces.
I sat down with the game's producer Noriko Umemura when she was in London last week and dug a little deeper into this fascinating title.
PlayStation.Blog: Rain has one of the more unusual set-ups in recent memory. Where did the idea come from?
Noriko Umemura: When we gathered together, we had one thing in common - we wanted...
36w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore revealed a release date and hero heads for Puppeteer on PS3 today alongside a fresh video trailer below.
To quote: I'm just back from the wonderful city of San Francisco and the 2013 Game Developers Conference.
Whilst I was there, I met with some members of the press to give them an exclusive look at the first two acts in Puppeteer, and also share an exciting gameplay reveal... Hero Heads!
As Kutaro, you'll find all sorts of amazing heads to act as your noggin as you journey to get your head back from Moon Bear King. Be careful to collect and keep the right ones, as some have the power to change and shape the world around you, while others unlock bonus stages - adding even more adventure and hilarity to this dark and fantastical tale!
I'm excited to finally let the cat out of the bag (no, not Ying-Yang...I mean a metaphorical cat) about four very special heads that Kutaro will encounter on his journey and aid him in his quest. Each Hero Head possesses a power that once belonged to one of the four legendary "Moon Heroes" who fought valiantly to protect the Moon Goddess from being overthrown by the evil Moon Bear King.
Alas, their powers were no match for Moon Bear King's twelve generals who ultimately defeated...

To quote: Hello racing fans! It's been a busy few weeks for GRID 2. We've confirmed a 31st May release date in Europe, announced some pre-order bonuses and today I'm here to talk a little bit more about the game. So let's jump straight in...
Introducing: World Series Racing (WSR)
At Codemasters we love racing of every flavour, but professional motorsports has always been splintered into different disciplines and formulas around the world. One of the questions we've kicked around for years in the Studio has been simple - who is the greatest? Which driver from which series is the best?
In GRID 2, we're looking to answer that question with World Series Racing - WSR. It's a new motorsport series that starts from the grassroots and grows into a huge Prime Time competition.
Racers from different disciplines - street racers, drifters, track racers and more - all come together in one global series, with each driver moving in and out of their comfort zone. So who is the greatest? Join WSR in GRID 2 and find out...
