17w ago - DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic revealed today that fans will be able to bring their PS3 stats to PlayStation 4 in Battlefield 4 on the upcoming PS4 video gaming and entertainment system.
To quote: This holiday, DICE will unwrap the next generation of all-out warfare with Battlefield 4. That means best-in-class multiplayer is coming to PS4 with huge 64-player battles, running at a smooth 60 frames-per-second.
Even if you start playing on PS3, we want to make your transition to PS4 easy. That's why we're notifying the devoted Battlefield and PlayStation communities that all of the time and effort you spend building up your Battlefield 4 stats will carry over when you upgrade to PS4.
That way, on October 29th, you can get in the game without any worries that you'll have to start ranking up all over again when PS4 launches. We got your back.
Today we also wanted to inform the community that DICE is promising to keep the action going all year long with the return of Premium membership for Battlefield 4.
With membership, players can expect themed digital expansion packs, new weekly content, and personalization options. And just as your stats, unlocks, and rank will be transferable from PS3 to PS4, so too will Battlefield 4 Premium membership.

17w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani posted up a video today spotlighting Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag for both PS3 and PS4 platforms complete with Stealth details below.
To quote: Game Director Ashraf Ismail takes you on a stealthy tour through underwater caverns and the Spanish city of Havana in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag.
In the following video, you'll get a tiny glimpse of the stealthy new skills we've included in Black Flag, which enable Edward Kenway to slip in and out of assassination contracts while causing minimal commotion.
Sneaking silently is nearly as important to Edward's successful execution of assassination contracts as his skill with his dual cutlasses (not to mention the extra money you can earn from a Stealth Bonus). Consequently, we've provided a variety of new mechanics to help Edward remain out-of-site and off-the-radar, like:
• Updated Eagle Vision - enables tagging of enemies and targets so you can see them through walls.
• Hiding door - a new hiding spot for quickly taking out guards while also hiding the body.
• Berserk Blowpipe Darts - diverts attention by causing an enemy to attack anything nearby, like fellow guards!
17w ago - Following up on the previous rumor, today an anonymous retailer schedule purports that the PlayStation 4 will be launching on October 21 although the PS4 was listed as an unnamed Sony console.
Below are the details, to quote: "Here's a juicy rumor for potential PlayStation 4 buyers. According to a NeoGaf user by the name of Nealand Liquor a listing for an unnamed Sony console notes the release date as October 21. Barring Sony working on a PlayStation 3 revision or a PS Vita 2, this release date falls within the rumored release window for the PlayStation 4.
Nealand, however, is persuaded that the listing is absolutely the PlayStation 4 and believes the release date to be officially confirmed by Sony. He states that in previous product release schedules revisions like slim consoles are listed by their official names, where new platforms like the Wii U, 3DS and Vita are only referenced as a Nintendo / Sony console. He also states that release dates, if unconfirmed, are listed as TBA. If a release date is listed, it has been confirmed by the product's company.
"Rumor: Our internal product release schedule from head office dropped yesterday and on Oct 21st an unnamed Sony console will...
17w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Kim Belair posted up a fresh Rules the City PS4 trailer video today on the upcoming PS3 and PlayStation 4 title Watch_Dogs with details below.
To quote: Last time, I was pumped to share the Honored Trailer for Watch_Dogs, and now I'm here with some new gameplay footage that'll give you the rundown on how to operate in the world of the game.
As you may know, Watch_Dogs' interpretation of Chicago is a web of technological connections, all overseen and managed by ctOS, a piece of centralized software designed to watch over the city and keep it running smoothly.
ctOS controls everything from emergency response to the network of indoor and outdoor security cameras dotting the urban landscape. In the hands of a skilled hacker and strategist like Aiden Pearce, ctOS means nearly unlimited power. And in your hands, it means incredibly fun and engaging open-world gameplay.
So check out the Watch_Dogs Hacking featurette.
Whether you're looking for a tactical advantage in stealth and strategy or just a bit of gossip mongering through strangers' private texts and scandalous emails, hacking into ctOS gives you total access, and it's an amazing feeling to play...
