15w ago - Today at Gamescom 2013 Metanet Co-Founder Mare Sheppard made available a video introducing fans to Ninja Platformer N++ for the upcoming PS4 / PlayStation 4 video gaming console.
To quote: Hello! We're Mare and Raigan from Metanet Software, and we're really excited to finally be able to announce that N++ will be coming to PS4!
One of the requests we get most frequently is a version of N for PlayStation, so we're delighted to reveal that yes, it's happening! And it's gonna be great.
If you haven't heard of us, we're the creators of N, N+ and now the upcoming N++. If you want to read more about those games, check out this post about their backstory.
Next year will mark the 10-year anniversary of N, which should tell you that we've been working on this series for a very long time. We've learned a lot about N over the years, and now it's time for us to take all the loose ends, crazy experiments, and things we never got a chance to do, and combine them all into one final version. Our goal is for this to be the definitive version, the one which we ourselves would want to play over all other versions: N++.
We can't wait to say more! In the meantime, the teaser trailer above should...
15w ago - Chucklefish Lead Writer Ashton Raze announced today that an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure called Starbound is coming to PS4.
To quote: Hey there! We're Chucklefish, a studio working on our first project - an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game called Starbound.
In Starbound, you take on the role of a character who's just fled from their home planet, only to crash-land on another. From there you'll embark on a quest to survive, discover, explore and fight your way across an infinite universe.

Starbound lets you live out your own story of space exploration, discovery and adventure. Settle down and farm the land, hop from planet to planet claiming resources, or make regular visits to populated settlements, taking on jobs and earning a living. NPCs are scattered about the worlds, offering quests and challenges for those looking for a little extra excitement in their lives.

15w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt shared a brand new Watch_Dogs PS4 / PlayStation 4 trailer video today at Gamescom 2013 below!
To quote: Hey guys! Couldn't make it to Gamescom? No worries, we've got you covered. Here's the trailer that was recently shown at Sony's conference. It introduces a rather intriguing group.
We already knew that even though Aiden was kind of a lone wolf, he wasn't always acting alone. He had some help. But in this latest piece, we're realizing that he might be facing more resistance than he had initially planned.
DedSec, an unorthodox group of "hacktivists" very active in Watch_Dogs' Chicago, doesn't seem to approve of Aiden's actions - even though in a way he's helping them uncover the many flaws of ctOS.
Therefore, they seem committed to exposing him and denouncing his actions to the population. And much like Aiden, DedSec appears to have plenty of resources, making him even more vulnerable.
So what's Aiden's real connection with them? Are they friend or foe? On top of dealing with his own problems and the occasional police chase, will he have to watch his back for DedSec members? I, for one, have trouble believing him when he says he's not in any trouble.
15w ago - Sony Network Entertainment Director of Music Services Anu Kirk announced today that Music Unlimited is getting amplified on the upcoming PS4 / PlayStation 4 console.
To quote: During E3, we mentioned that the Music Unlimited service would be available for PlayStation 4 at launch and today during Gamescom we revealed some great features we think you'll love.
The new Music Unlimited streaming service features a completely redesigned user interface that was specifically enhanced for PS4. It is faster, simple to use, and enables gamers to easily discover new artists and songs from the Music Unlimited global library of over 22 million songs.
Additionally, we added new features that many PlayStation gamers have requested. You will now be able to listen to music in the background while playing games and access Music Unlimited controls on the fly without completely exiting game play or other apps.
Simply press and hold the "PS" button on the DUALSHOCK 4 to access a pop up menu that will enable you to quickly pause or skip tracks, and adjust the volume.
Look for the Music Unlimited app when PS4 launches on November 15. Meanwhile, if you aren't a subscriber, don't miss the special Premium annual subscription offer available today for PlayStation Plus members and others....
