To quote: Official Killzone Shadow Fall Game Page
It's been 30-odd years since the events of Killzone 3, and my, how things have changed. The fearsome Helghast are now refugees, their homeworld annihilated in a nuclear firestorm. In a desperate bid for survival, the surviving Helghast emigrate to an idyllic planet controlled by their mortal enemies, the ISA.
Unrest simmers, leading to the construction of a vast security wall intended to separate the Vektan haves from the Helghast have-nots. A long, fragile peace is shattered following a terrorist strike (seen in Killzone Shadow Fall's February 20th at PS4's debut conference), prompting the ISA leadership to bring out the big guns. That'd be you, elite Shadow Marshal operative Lucas Kellan. Your mission is simple: Restore order at any cost.
Launch game or no, Killzone Shadow Fall's campaign is a visual stunner on PS4, rendering a smorgasbord of reflections, dynamic lighting, and billowing smoke at a razor-sharp 1080p native resolution (1920 x 1080). It's as if developer Guerrilla Games wanted to cast off every...
6w ago - Compulsion Games Community and PR Manager Sam Abbott shared details today on the dark inspirations of Contrast on PS4.
To quote: Why hello there, Playstation.Blog readers. We hope you're sitting comfortably. If you're not, please do - grab yourself a tumbler, take a load off.
Tonight, we're taking you way back to the 1920′s, to a time where jazz was king and the world was getting back on its feet after a devastating war. It was a world of class, depression, and the working stiff. A time where suits weren't just what you wore to a job interview, and evening dresses fit women like gloves.
Welcome, to Contrast. I want to ask you a quick question before we start: when you were a kid, did you ever wish you could become your shadow?
Contrast is... unique. Set in a film noir inspired "dreamscape," the world of Contrast is centered around a little girl named Didi. Didi lives alone with her mother, Kat - a cabaret singer at the biggest show in town. Her father abandoned the family a little while back, which left them in real trouble.
In Contrast, you play an imaginary friend, Dawn. We were inspired by Pan's Labyrinth, where the main character is a little girl who invents an imaginary friend...

7w ago - Following up on his previous update, today Sony's Shuhei Yoshida discusses PS4 automatic game caching, voice commands without the PlayStation 4 PS Eye and more below!
To quote: Shuhei Yoshida via his personal Twitter account has revealed never heard before details about PlayStation 4.
Yoshida first confirmed that PlayStation 4 does automatic cashing to games, and its not the mandatory install. This is really huge news for Playstation 4, it basically mean, if you want to play CoD Ghosts and Killzone, you won't need 100GB of space (50GB each,) you'll just need 50GB to cache them. That's so cool!
David Magalhaes (DiamondDM13): Sorry to ask this here, but I'm confused. Does the PS4 have mandatory game installs to the HDD? Or is that optional?
Shuhei Yoshida (yosp): it's automatic, not install but caching data
Furthermore, Yoshida went on to confirmed Voice Commands are available without PlayStation Eye i.e via available via Mic and DualShock 4 controller.
Jefferson Keane (Jefferson_Keane): Voice commands are available without PS eye ? I mean with the mic and the DS4 ?
