3w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford posted up a video today spotlighting Media Molecule, the team behind Tearaway on PS Vita below!
To quote: The last video in our little Tearaway miniseries is all about us: Media Molecule, the studio behind Tearaway and our first game LittleBigPlanet.
The video focuses on how we work, and how we assure everyone's ideas are counted. Mm is an interesting place, a rather chaotic place where the term 'herding cats' gets thrown around a lot, but where somehow the chaos is channeled into communal creativity and the games we love to make.
We love to inspire creativity in people, and we love to create our own unique games that we think will give people experiences unlike any they've had before.
Tearaway is out this Friday, November 22nd and we hope it will provide players with exactly that - a new game experience unlike any other - we'll let you be the judge!
We hope you enjoy this last video in the series- remember to pre-order Tearaway to secure the cool pre-order bonus items. Week one orders at the PS Store will also include the bonus items, so those who prefer the digital version will not miss out!
3w ago - Sony Santa Monica Senior Producer Zach Wood shared a video today detailing Sound Shapes on PlayStation 4, PS4 DLC and Art Packs below.
To quote: Okay, this is a big one. Are you ready? Here we go.
So you probably saw the PS4 launch last week - pretty exciting, right!? Did you get one? Lucky lucky if you did.
We've been playing with the PlayStation 4 for a while, because we've been preparing Sound Shapes for this screaming fast new machine. Sound Shapes doesn't exactly push the hardware, but it sure looks sweet!
We've also added new functionality with DualShock 4′s touchpad, light bar, and speakers. It also takes advantage of PS4′s social features, like the new Share button that allows you to easily livestream your game with friends and share vids of your levels.
With all these improvements, this is a great time to pick up Sound Shapes (we're impressed with your monk-like patience if you haven't). If you're already one of our thousands of supporters, we have great news... The PS4 version of Sound Shapes is free for you!
That's right, everyone who's already purchased the game from PSN for PS3 or PS Vita also gets it for PS4 (isn't Cross-Buy great?). The flip is...
3w ago - Zoink developer Klaus Lyngeled shared a video today announcing that Stick It to the Man is out tomorrow on PlayStation 3.
To quote: Wow! It has been a great week here at Zoink: years of sketching, painting, story writing, puzzle coding and voice-acting have come to an end, and this week you can all Stick It to The Man on your PS3. And it actually looks like we did something right. Reviews are popping up all over the place and it's looking good, actually amazingly awesome! Mostly 9 out of 10!
Besides floating around on pink clouds with goofy smiles on our faces, we even managed to throw a brand-spanking new gameplay trailer together. Check it out - it'll be much easier than me trying to explain the game to you.
We internally call it the Crazy Trailer. It's just crazily overloaded with stuff; we had a really hard time choosing what should go in, so we just packed it pretty full with a bit of everything!
You can preorder the game now, or wait until PlayStation Store updates tomorrow to buy it. It's cross-buy, so when the PS Vita version is released in December you'll get that too! For updates check out the Web site or head to the Facebook...
3w ago - Following up on the previous PlayStation 4 Teardown Video and North American PS4 Launch, today iFixit (linked above) has shared a PS4 Teardown and Review video of their own below with pictures available HERE.
To quote: The thorough analysis from the Web site rates the PS4 an 8 out of 10 based on repairability, additionally showing that common hardware issues preventing the PS4 from outputting a video signal to the display is likely the cause of a bent or damaged HDMI port on the console.
The PS4 breakdown also gives a closer look at the user-replaceable hard drive which can be replaced "with any off-the shelf drive you like" as long as it is no thicker than 9.5 mm and no smaller than 160 GB.
Deeper into the belly of the PS4 shows the system's power supply is rated at an AC Input of 100 to 240 volts, meaning "you can take your game around the world with your trusty PS4 always at your side" as...
