20w ago - Sony's PS4 development kit FCC filing shows off extra ports alongside a 2.75GHz max clock speed with details below.
To quote from Engadget (linked above): "Sony proudly showed off its PlayStation 4 hardware for the first time at E3, and now we're getting a peek at what developers are working with this generation thanks to the FCC.
The DUH-D1000AA prototype Development Kit for PS4 is listed in these documents, tested for its Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi radios. As one would expect, the diagrams show it eschews the sleek design of the consumer model for extra cooling, a shape made for rack mounts plus extra indicator lights and ports.
Also of note is a "max clock speed" listing of 2.75GHz, and although we don't know how fast the game system will run by default, it's interesting to hear what that 8-core AMD Jaguar silicon may be capable of while maintaining a temperature between 5 and 35 degrees celsius.
Hit the link above to check out the documents for yourself, after seeing this and the system's controller become a part of the FCC's database all we're left waiting for is Mark...
21w ago - Sony Marketing Promotions Specialist Michael Steranka announced today that PlayStation 4 will be present at Comic-Con 2013 including the first public PS4 hands-on presentation with details below.
To quote: As Comic-Con regulars know, there's nothing more valuable at the yearly convention than time. With panel lines literally out the door and the Exhibitor Hall packed wall-to-wall with scurrying people, it's often hard to decide how to allocate your precious time. This year, we're making that decision a no-brainer. Want to know why?
You guessed it (probably because it's in the headline of this post!) - we're bringing PS4 to Comic-Con 2013.
For the first time ever, gamers can go hands-on with the PS4. On top of that, we'll be showing off some of this year's most highly anticipated PS3 and PS Vita titles, as well as participating in a number of panels throughout the weekend. If that's not enough, we're also hosting contests at the PlayStation booth every day where we'll be giving away PS Vitas!
To help you plan your Comic-Con experience accordingly, here's a list of everything PlayStation at this year's convention:
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.
