Video: Knack at E3 2013: New PS4 Trailer, Connected Play and More

50°
44w ago - Game Director Mark Cerny made available a new PS4 video trailer today spotlighting Knack at E3 2013 which showcases connected play and more below!

To quote: When I first introduced Knack back in February at the New York press conference, I focused on the unique character of Knack, as well as his world and the story of the game.

We took a different direction with the latest trailer, shown during the E3 PlayStation press conference: as you can see, it focuses more on the excitement and the variety of the gameplay.

The Knack World

One essential element of a character-based action game, whether it be Crash Bandicoot or Jak and Daxter, is the vibrant and varied environments to explore.

With Knack, we took the increased power of the PS4 as an opportunity to increase the depth and richness of these environments, with enemies and challenges around every corner.

We also worked to add a deeper and more involving story - in many ways, the game is a mashup between a classic platformer and a CGI movie starring the very distinctive character of Knack.

One Hero, Many Sizes

The playable demo in the E3 booth focuses on the different challenges and combat scenarios in the game, which call for unique abilities that only Knack...
 

Video: Gran Turismo 6 E3 2013 PS3 Trailer Shows Willow Springs

44w ago - Sony Associate Product Manager Ken Chan posted up a new Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) E3 2013 PS3 trailer video which shows Willow Springs and GT3 race cars below.

To quote: 2013 Press Conference, we proudly presented a new trailer showing highlights and new evolutions developed exclusively for GT6.

Without giving too much of the trailer away, pay attention to the effects of the new physics engine as it accounts for all the intricacies and complexities of a car's behavior, especially during cornering.

With help from KW Automotive, the suspension system of each vehicle, most notably the shocks, more accurately showcase how a car reacts to various lateral loads, reproducing body roll and wheel slip in an amazingly real manner.

Polyphony Digital worked closely with Yokohama Rubber Corporation to produce a new tire model that reflects the tire compound, tire structure and changes in characteristics during extreme load conditions.

Improving the overall look of GT6 is Adaptive Tessellation, the next generation in 3D model rendering technology. Tessellation involves dividing a polygon into multiple geometric tiles; Adaptive Tessellation takes that science one step further by automatically dividing the polygons to become finer according to the viewing distance and position.
 

Video: Klei Tells PS4 Fans Don't Starve on PlayStation 4 at E3 2013

44w ago - Klei Co-Founder Jamie Cheng told PS4 fans at E3 2013 today Don't Starve is coming on PlayStation 4 with details and some video footage below.

To quote: Very recently, we decided to throw our lot into the PS4, and announced that Don't Starve is coming on the platform. If you haven't heard about Don't Starve, it's an uncompromising, wilderness survival game full of science and magic.

You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Living in a randomly generated world, Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape. Basically, you try not to die, but you will. A lot.

Don't Starve was created to bend the rules of engagement. How do we build a game that focuses entirely on creating intrinsically rewarding gameplay?

That is, rather than the game giving the player external (extrinsic) rewards, such as loot, levels, points and trophies, the fun part of the game is simply the experience and the challenge of playing it?

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Crashes, Stumbles, and Flops on to PS4

44w ago - Young Horses President & Co-Founder Phil Tibitoski announced at E3 today that Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be crashing, stumbling and flopping on to PS4 / PlayStation 4 console.

To quote: Have you ever felt out of place? Just don't feel you're good enough, no matter how hard you try? Maybe you've got something to hide from the world.

Maybe you're not really the perfect human husband and father of three, but actually an octopus. This is what Octodad: Dadliest Catch is all about. You have a loving wife. You have adorable kids. They, however, have no idea of your secret cephalopod nature.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the first slapstick fatherhood simulator, and we're excited to say that we'll be bringing it to the PlayStation 4 in 2014.

You may be asking yourself, "Well, what's so difficult about being an octopus?"

Well, first off, you're an invertebrate, so you have no bones. Your body is gelatinous. As you can imagine, that makes it hard to simply move around outside of water.

All those things we humans take for granted, like counteracting gravity, are a constant challenge. Oh, and you have eight arms you've managed to stuff into a fancy suit to form a human shape. There are...

44w ago - Sony Community Development Manager Jamie Brayshaw made available a new DriveClub PS4 / PlayStation 4 video trailer today alongside an official E3 club challenge below.

To quote: Your reaction to #DRIVECLUB at the #playstation2013 event in February really got everyone at Evolution Studios fired up! We're so excited to finally be able to show you more of #DRIVECLUB, I can barely contain my hashtags!

We get excited about E3 every year - even to the point of setting up TV's around the studio to live stream the whole event so that we can all keep up to speed with what's hot and what's new while we work - but this year it's going to be on a completely new level.

Not just because of what 'next generation' means for games and PlayStation, but because the game we've wanted to make for almost 10 YEARS is finally going to be there at E3 (and so am I along with a few members of the team)!

I know a lot of you have been dying to see more of #DRIVECLUB in action on PlayStation 4 since the announcement, so before I go on to tell you more about what we're doing at E3, WATCH THIS VIDEO!





We're bravely letting everybody who comes to our experience room at the PlayStation booth on the E3 show floor actually...
