3d ago - Some PlayStation Now Beta game loading times have been leaked from an anonymous participant and have since been compared to the previous phase of testing with details below.

To quote from DualShockers (linked above): "Back in February a reader that wished to remain anonymous sent us a list of the loading times of all the games that were available in the first phase of the beta of PlayStation Now.

The beta has now moved on to the second phase, with a whole lot of new games available and even some returning ones. The same reader took it upon himself to clock the loading times again using the same internet connection and shared them with us.

Like last time, each timing in the list below is from the launch of the game to the splash screen. We were provided a video as evidence, but we were asked not to publish it to protect the tipster’s identity (and account).

Between parenthesis you can also see the loading times of the returning games in the first phase of the beta, for comparison’s sake.

Current PlayStation Now Beta List:

  • Shadow of the Colossus - 46.72 (old time: 53.98)
  • WipeOut HD - 57.19
  • Dead Nation - 40.05
  • PixelJunk Monsters - 39.90
  • Shatter - 38.86 (old time: 39.77)
  • Guacamelee! –...

 

Video: Atlus Announces Conception II is Out Today on PS Vita

3d ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin announced that Conception II is out today on PS Vita with a fresh PlayStation Vita video trailer below.

To quote: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is out today for PS Vita, and you know what that means? It's time to start classmating!

Conception II is a dungeon crawler/social-sim hybrid where you're put into the role of "God's Gift" - a teenager bestowed with unprecedented amounts of power from the Star God. As a disciple, you're tasked with saving the world of Aterra by pairing up with one of the game's seven heroines and clearing out infestations of monsters.

Of course, to do that, you'll need your army of Star Children - magical beings that fight for you in battle. You make these Star Children through a magical ritual with the heroines, and you can bring up to nine Star Children with you into battle.

There's 30 classes of Star Children to choose from, and the stats of the heroine, the heroine's mood (You gotta be nice to them!), and other rare items affect what classes are available to you, so spend your time wisely.

Oh - and be sure to turn on your ad-hoc networks; you can actually classmate with another player's heroines or even the other players themselves in a process called "classmanting" (Yeah, that's a thing).

3d ago - The Gameroom Product Development Manager Ashley Hodgetts announced that That Trivia Game is out today on the PlayStation 4 video gaming system with details below.

To quote: Get those thinking caps on and ready the crew for an intense battle of the minds - in a "not too serious" way. It's time for That Trivia Game!

That Trivia Game on PS4 is all about trivia. We spent a large portion of our time researching and creating questions that cover a wide range of categories and topics.

A thousand questions were hand-picked out of the thousands of candidates to ensure we had a fair and balanced collection of relevant and current trivia. The difficulty levels were carefully balanced so that everyone can get involved - there's nothing worse than being the only person playing that doesn't know any of the answers.

That Trivia Game has four rounds with fun and varying ways of playing. Each round adds its own twist to the trivia format, making every round fun and engaging, while still being easy to play.

As mentioned earlier, That Trivia Game has more than a thousand questions in a wide range of categories. This means that you can play around 40 games of That Trivia Game without seeing repeating questions. And at the price of $9.99, that's less than 1 cent per question!

To quote: A few weeks ago we added two classic Killzone multiplayer maps to Killzone Mercenary.

Since then we've been working on adding more to Killzone Mercenary, and finally it's here on PS Vita. We're very pleased to announce the release of our latest update for Killzone Mercenary, delivering an offline multiplayer experience to our 8 maps.

With the purchase of the Botzone Soldier Training Pack, all of our multiplayer maps can be played offline in Mercenary or Guerrilla Warfare modes, against up to 7 AI soldiers. As the game host, you'll have control over the number of teammates and enemies joining you in battle.

In team modes, you have the luxury of picking your compatriots and foes: play with 3 against 1 for a quick kill, or go brave and take on an entire team of bots alone. Your choice, soldier!

Killzone Mercenary Botzone brings new skills to the series' traditionally strong AI bot experience: Vanguard usage, zip line navigation, interrogations, rescues, capsule hacking, and valour card collection are all behaviors unique to the game and our AI is going to challenge you with all of them. Not only that, but our cunning bots...
