2w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation and PSN Game releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

There's a place for both fantasy and sci-fi nerds this week, as Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut and LEGO The Hobbit come to PlayStation. Rejoice, and bask in the glory of either fandom (Or both!).

Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut on PS4 propels gamers into heart-racing battles through space. Participate in an interstellar war and save Earth from destruction using the awe-inspiring Strike Suit - a powerful ship that can transform into a suit of armor.

Take on 17 unique story missions, match wits with intelligent enemy fighters, and face colossal capital ships for unparalleled glory. Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut features customizable weapon loadouts, multiple craft, and unmatched dogfighting action.

If swords and questing sound more suitable, explore a delightfully blocky Middle-earth with LEGO The Hobbit on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. Experience the first two feature films in a whole new way, with iconic characters rendered as loveable LEGO heroes. Guide Bilbo, Gandalf, and the Dwarves through familiar locations in an effort to reach the Misty Mountains. Forge new items, mine for gems, and take incredible loot from enemies.

2w ago - Today GamePointsNow (linked above) has detailed the Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) game installation sizes primarily intended for those who haven't upgraded their stock 500GB PS4 hard drive.

To quote: PlayStation 4 (PS4) Game Installation Sizes

With the release of the next generation consoles it’s clear that Sony has one eye on a purely digital future with day and date digital releases and of course it’s excellent PS+ offerings.

But with only a 500GB hard drive included in the PS4 console and mandatory installs for every title (and 92GB reserved for the OS), just how long is it going to take before you have to switch it out for a bigger drive? We at GamePointsNow have produced a reference guide for all PS4 releases to date*

*Initial downloads only, correct at date of publication. Further patches may be required.

Game Title / Publisher / Game Size

Sony Details First 2 Hours of Child of Light PS4 on PlayStation 4

2w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements detailed the first two hours of Child of Light PS4 on PlayStation 4 below today.

To quote: Before a crumbling statue in a dark wood, Aurora faces her first enemy in Child of Light. As it screeches in the little girls' direction, she hefts her oversized sword into the air with supreme confidence.

She's unfazed by its arachnid frame and menacing gait. This encounter depicts Child of Light in its purest form: unflinching, beautiful, and defiant of expectations. It's a PS3 and PS4 RPG that celebrates the RPG tradition while striking out on a new path, wholly its own.

When I first wrote about Child of Light last year, Aurora had already embarked on her adventure through the enchanting world of Lemuria.

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to play the opening two hours, uninterrupted. The result: an unassailable emotional connection to Aurora and her quest. The team at Ubisoft Montreal has crafted a heart-rending story, steeped in detail and welcoming to young gamers as well as old.

Aurora's arrival in Lemuria is immediately tragic. Daughter to an Austrian duke, the young girl falls ill and wakes in...
 

Sony Announces PlayStation Vita Pets is Coming on June 3rd, 2014

2w ago - Sony Producer Jenny Murphy announced today that PlayStation Vita Pets is coming on June 3rd, 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: We are very excited to announce that we will be releasing PlayStation Vita Pets exclusively for PS Vita.

PlayStation Vita Pets is no ordinary pet game! The team at Spiral House set out to make something that was more than just a pet sim - we wanted to make something that felt like a real game, with characters, fun and adventure, so that's exactly what we did.

In the game you pick from four different puppies, each with their own personality, sense of humor and character traits. Once you've gotten to know each other and learned the skills needed to venture outside the safety of your home you'll be able to embark (no pun intended) on the adventure of Castlewood Island and uncover the long lost legend of a king and his dog.

That's right; outside of the home where you dress, play with, bathe and train your dog is a whole island of adventure to explore and puzzles to solve.

Together you'll be able to explore a massive forest, venture into multiple locations like spooky old mines and graveyards to ultimately make your way to the legendary castle...
