Rumor: PS1 / PS2 Games Heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via Emulation

400°
11w ago - Today Eurogamer (linked above) reports on rumors of PS1 / PS2 games heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via emulation with details below.

To quote: Backwards compatibility is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Now is only part of the story. A well-placed source working with Sony's streaming service reveals that only PlayStation 3 titles are currently scheduled to use the "gameplay over IP" cloud service. PS1 and PS2 titles are set to follow the more conventional route of running locally under emulation on Sony's latest console - but with the possibility of HD visual enhancements.

While Sony effectively phased out hardware emulation of previous platforms during the early stages of the PS3 era, it has worked consistently on opening up the PlayStation back catalogue to publishers via software emulation and PSN downloads.

Internally, PlayStation 3's firmware contains emulators for PS1, PS2 and even the handheld PSP, while Vita is capable of running PS1 and Vita titles virtually flawlessly using the same technology. In short, there's a proven codebase that can only get better for the vastly more powerful PS4.

Our information suggests that the same internal emulator strategy is planned for PlayStation 4, and we understand that Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to...

Video: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Out Today on PlayStation 4

50°
11w ago - Crystal Dynamics Community Manager Meagan Marie announced alongside a video trailer that the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is out today on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is often declared a passion project at Crystal Dynamics, and in my opinion it shows. Lara's next-gen debut united three studios - leads from Crystal, longtime partner Nixxes, and Sleeping Dogs' United Front Games - to usher Tomb Raider into a new generation of gaming.

Definitive Edition pairs the vision and artistry of the original release with technological improvements that allowed for a truly definitive experience, and one that only hints at what the future holds for Lara.

We're really eager to get Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition into your hands, or the hands of your friends if they've yet to venture to Yamatai. Below you'll find a few words from the team thanking you for your support, and for spreading the word about Lara's first journey on next-gen.





"Thanks in advance everyone! Enjoy the improved Lara!"
Mike Abahazy, Senior Technical Artist

"I just wanted to say thanks to all the TR fans out there - old and new! It was great fun working on the Definitive Edition....
 

Second Son's Seattle: Bringing the Infamous City to Life on PS4

100°
11w ago - Sucker Punch Productions Art Director Horia Dociu is here with a video which brings the the infamous city Seattle to life in Second Son on PS4.

To quote: From the start, Seattle felt like the perfect locale for Second Son. Sucker Punch Productions is located just outside of Seattle, and we saw this as an opportunity to recreate the feeling of our home town.

We wanted to capture a level of detail we had never attempted before using the amazing speed, graphics processing power, and high resolution output of PS4. Not to mention, being from here, we just couldn't build a fake city with a fake Space Needle... I mean "Galactic Tower" just doesn't sound right to us.

Our goal was to create an urban playground for the player as they experience Delsin's amazing superhuman powers, so it was paramount that we capture the essence of the city. We wanted to give the player the feeling of walking down an alleyway and seeing the rain accumulate between the cobblestones, and the reflections of the rain-streaked, brick buildings and neon market signs.





Or the feeling of looking up at the sun as it breaks through the clouds, sending rays of light through enormous pine trees. We challenged our team to create all the painstaking...
