Destiny on PS4: First PlayStation 4 Hands-on Details Revealed

50°
12w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands-on today with Destiny on PS4, revealing the first PlayStation 4 details below.

To quote: Having spend several hours with a pre-release version of Destiny on PS4, my sense is that Bungie's vision is no less than a complete rethink of how multiplayer shooters work.

Destiny is a deconstruction and reconstruction of a genre that has languished in sterile matchmaking lobbies for far too long.

If you don't have a particular agenda, Patrol is a good place to start. The Patrol structure is deliberately relaxed and freewheeling, with locations covering a large swath of exterior and interior spaces.

You can hunt for beacons to trigger side missions, or just blast enemies, collect loot, and explore at your own pace. Patrol missions seem to vary considerably, tasking you with everything from collecting uranium to interrupting mining operations and assassinating enemy leaders.

From time to time you'll cross paths with other Patrol players, sometimes in the form of dynamic "social events" that pit you against a bigger challenge.

It's always optional: Tag along with the new guy, or hop...

Video: PS4 Music Player App Revealed by Shuhei Yoshida's PSN Profile

100°
12w ago - Following the rumors that MP3 playback is coming soon to the PlayStation 4, today what may be a Sony PS4 Music Player application was revealed by Shuhei Yoshida's PSN Profile!

To quote: There have been rumors of MP3 playback support coming to the PS4 with a future update, and something found by one of our readers that snooped on Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida's PSN profile definitely seems to add solidity to those rumors:

Apparently Yoshida-san ran a "Music Player Demo" app yesterday, and it left very visible tracks on his PSN profile, as you can see in the pictures at the bottom of the post:

Of course we don't have clear information on what the "Music Player" entails, or if it'll really play MP3 files, but now we know that it exists, and it's being tested internally at Sony Computer Entertainment.

It's worth mentioning that normally this kind of unannounced app is kept hidden from profiles, but apparently someone forgot to flip that switch.

We'll have to stand by and see if the app will be announced any time soon, or if it'll make it in the upcoming 1.7 firmware update.

CI Games: Lords of the Fallen on PS4: A Challenge Worth Facing

50°
13w ago - CI Games Executive Producer Tomasz Gop shared details today on CI Lords of the Fallen for PS4 who states it's a challenge worth facing!

To quote: I've seen my share of challenging games, and I loved a whole lot of them. And honestly speaking, I could never put up with so many people that quit playing them early.

But I've come around full circle to the point where I don't see their impatience as a shortcoming anymore. There's room for improvement in game design. And I believe that the team behind Lords of the Fallen on PS4 is after something that will narrow the gap between mainstream and core players. One bit at a time, that is.

First things first: we decided that if there's a main feature of Lords of the Fallen that will be complex and challenging, the rest should be more or less streamlined.

I'm not trying to say that we dumbed down anything. Take books written by Dan Brown or Harlan Coben, for example; they're not deprived of any intellectual value. They've been skillfully written for the mainstream audience, so... why not games?

Lords of the Fallen will try to tell a story without imposing it. You won't have to remember that the Fallen God's name is Adyr to face him. You won't have to memorize the names of crucial NPCs to follow their plots. But...
