3w ago - Following up on their previous confirmation that the PlayStation 4 / PS4 console won't block used games, some top Sony employees have also responded to the Twitter movement (hashtags #PS4NoDRM and #PS4USEDGAMES) to accept used video games and remove DRM (digital rights management) protection from them.
The movement started (via neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=568033) with the intended goal being to convince Sony not to take the same route as Microsoft with the PS4. They also want people to tell Sony that the PlayStation 4 should be region free and have free online play.
Below are some excerpts from some high-ranking Sony staffers revealing that the company is listening to consumers and gamers alike, as follows:
John Koller, the head of Sony Hardware Marketing commented (twitter.com/jpkoller): This is why I love PlayStation fans- the passion bucket overflows #playstation
While Nick Accordino, an SCEA producer, added (twitter.com/Nikoro): Humbled by the outpouring of passionate PlayStation fans and their willingness to talk to us directly. Please know that we hear you. <3
3w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
Fuse follows a team of four elite agents obliterating enemy strongholds using fringe-tech gadgets and lethal teamwork.
The members of Overstrike 9 are comprised of an ex-mercenary, Interpol's most wanted thief, a gifted young scientist and a decorated detective. Collectively, they are the agency's outcasts.
But a shadowy organization threatens to wipe out humankind. Thanks to each agent's unique talents and a tendency to completely ignore protocol - Overstrike 9 is the only option left.
Fuse blends developer Insomniac Games' flair for exotic weaponry and immersive storytelling with a touch of humor in this 4 person co-op action game for PS3. Enjoy this week's The Drop.

4w ago - Today GamingBolt.com (linked above) reports that Sony India's Web site has apparently leaked the rumored PlayStation 4 / PS4 250 GB SKU retail pricing with details below.
To quote: "Sony India apparently updated (now removed) their Web site to reveal the pricing for the upcoming next generation PlayStation 4 console. It listed the console along with a 250 GB hard disk drive as retailing for 399 Euros.
Of course, a while later, they realized their slip up and proceeded to delete the information. Not before other sites could latch on to the info however (thanks NeoGAF), and report on it.
As it stands, this would validate rumours that the PlayStation 4 would be retailing for $400 to $500 dollars (with 399 Euros roughly translating into $513). While we doubt that the price in the United States would be that much, we'd be surprised if Sony priced the console lower than $400.
Of course, this hasn't been officially announced by Sony worldwide - and they would at least use a platform like E3 2013 to announce the price of the device. So remain skeptical. It could very well have been a complete slip-up or just something completely wrong that couldn't be removed quick enough."
