6w 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 ?
7w ago - Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.56 with the changes outlined below.
To quote, roughly translated: IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG , restart the PS3 , if it was loaded before Iris Manager
What's New in version 2.56:
Added support for devices with NTFS (Windows , read / write)) and EXT2/3/4 (Linux , read only) from "Archive Manager" (support to EXT2/3/4 filesystem partitions in external devices (only read access) from "Archive Manager")
Added support for BD Emu PS3_GM01 activated (support to "direct multiboot" discs using the disc structure: dev_bdvd/PS3_GM01/ in "BD emu" mode)
NOTE: Remember that writing is experimental support and assume risks when using it: check with "chkdsk " to ensure that no data is lost or corrupted.
With the partitions "ext" to be in read, no problem that can corrupt anything.
7w ago - WB Games Montreal Narrative Designer Ryan Galletta announced today via Sony's Blog that Batman: Arkham Origins is officially out tomorrow on PS3!
To quote: This year, Christmas comes on October 25th when Batman: Arkham Origins launches on PS3. Just like the night before Christmas, the team at WB Games Montreal is staying up late, anxious and excited to see what the morning will bring.
Over the last two years, this team has worked incredibly hard, giving much of their lives to ensure that we honor the name "Batman."
We can't wait to show off our boss fights. In particular, Bane and Deathstroke are going to test your limits in brutal contest. We think Copperhead will come out of Arkham Origins as one of the coolest interpretations of the character.
And the team would be sadly disappointed for anyone who misses out on the Mad Hatter Most Wanted mission. Setting aside how beautiful the rest of the game looks, the art team went a little crazy there, and Peter MacNicol really knocks it out of the park as a very mad Hatter.
All in all, there's a massive playground for you to explore, and the team has made sure that there's a reason to visit every corner of it.
Batman's pain and anger will be channeled straight to the hairs on the back of your neck, thanks...
