21w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan shared a video today spotlighting Killzone: Shadow Fall: OWL Drone details alongside PS4 pre-order bonuses below.
To quote: In Killzone: Shadow Fall, being a Shadow Marshal is all about dominating the flow of combat and fighting on your own terms. Your OWL combat drone gives you enormous freedom in choosing how each fight plays out.
The OWL has several modes of operation you can activate via DualShock 4's touch pad: a stun mode, which creates an area-of-effect shock blast that stuns enemies and disrupts electronics; an attack mode, in which the OWL attacks anyone within range or targets a specific enemy; a shield mode, which creates a one-way energy shield in front of you; and finally, a zipline mode, which allows you to quickly and safely reach lower areas.
To allow you to tailor your gameplay experience even further, we're happy to announce the Shadow Pack - a bundle of exclusive content you'll receive for pre-ordering Killzone: Shadow Fall at participating retailers! The Shadow Pack will gain you access to these extras:
Give your OWL a unique appearance with these exclusive skins. Who says combat drones need to be devoid of personality?
21w ago - Today AllGames.com (linked above) reports that Sony's PS4 / PlayStation 4 release date of November 30, 2013 has been revealed by a kiosk in a local Best Buy retail store.
Previously, Sony stated that the PS4 / PlayStation 4 release date would be officially unveiled at Gamescom in Cologne from August 21-25, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: "Exactly when will the PS4 be released?
The answer lies in what I would describe as an impressive pre-order display touch screen system located at a particular Best Buy I went to recently. Using the touch screen, you can pre-order video games and/or the new video game systems.
While I was at Best Buy, using the touch screen, I decided, on a whim, to select the video game consoles category since I was curious as to what would be displayed for the PS4. I touched the screen that showed a picture of the PS4 - when lo and behold - I saw it! There before me on the big screen was the release date for the PS4.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so take a look and you will see what I saw as the availability, release, or launch date for the PS4. Rather than me telling you the date - check out the visual below. Pre-order touch screen at Best Buy shows availability date for the PS4 as 11/30/2013.

21w ago - Guerrilla Games Director Steven Ter Heide revealed the actors today for their upcoming PlayStation 4 / PS4 title Killzone: Shadow Fall below.
To quote: Although they've shared the same planet for thirty years, the Vektans and the Helghast are now on the brink of war. With both factions eager to protect their home and reclaim what they believe is theirs, trust has reached an all-time low. The wall built to separate both sides can no longer contain the enemy.
In Killzone: Shadow Fall, you'll serve as a Shadow Marshal under Vektan Security Agency director Sinclair, who has you perform the difficult missions that ensure the balance remains tipped in favor of the Vektans.
But Echo, an intelligence operative for the Helghast, has similar orders - and she will stop at nothing to accomplish them.
To bring these two key characters to life, we are very pleased to have secured the amazing talents of David Harewood, who plays Sinclair, and Jamie Gray Hyder, who has taken on the role of Echo. Watch the Killzone: Shadow Fall story teaser here (below) to see them in action.
David is a British actor best known for his role as that other intelligence agency director - David Estes, the deputy...
