7w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is back with a Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 video today alongside answers to PlayStation 4 questions from fans below.
To quote: As Killzone Shadow Fall gears up for PS4's November 15th launch in North America, we caught up with Game Director Steven Ter Heide to get answers to your burning questions across single-player and multiplayer.
We reveal new details on co-op, dedicated servers, weapons, DualShock 4, and much more. Enjoy!
@ShawnMacLean: Is Killzone Shadow Fall a good entry point to the Killzone franchise?
Steven Ter Heide: Absolutely! In many ways, Killzone Shadow Fall is a fresh start for the franchise - the game takes place some thirty years after the original Killzone trilogy, so most of the characters and story arcs from those games have passed into history. And while die-hard fans will appreciate the nods to earlier Killzone titles, no knowledge of the Killzone universe is required to get into the story.
@nick_serio: How long is the campaign?
STH: Killzone Shadow Fall's campaign should last well over 10 hours for most gamers.
7w ago - Today a screenshot has surfaced showing the Friends List crossover from PS3 to PS4, which depicts a user playing Killzone: Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4, seen on friends list on the PlayStation 3.
To quote: "Someone recently leaked a screenshot showing what is the first ever PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 crossover.
As you can see in the above image, this is the first case of a PS4/PS3 crossover. If you do not understand what's going on in the picture allow me to explain. If you have a PlayStation Vita, then you know that you can see what everyone on your friends list is playing. The only difference is that PS3 users can't see what PlayStation Vita users are playing... yet.
This looks to NOT be the case with the PlayStation 4, because as you can clearly see, this XMB shot was taken from a PS3. It's only a matter of time until the PS4 arrives and this screenshot is only building my anticiption more and more."
7w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today and made available some video footage of old-school shooting with new-school technology in Resogun on the PS4 video gaming system!
To quote: Fire up Resogun, muffle out the world with a pair of killer headphones, and get lost in a flurry of bullets. This is the kind of shooter that demands a gamer's full attention, and it's the kind of demand worth giving in to.
Resogun, which launches alongside PS4 next month and will be included as the first Instant Game Collection title for PlayStation Plus members in North America, marries the joy of chasing high scores with cutting-edge graphics tech.
Like developer Housemarque's other downloadable games (Super Stardust HD, Super Stardust: Delta, Dead Nation), picking up the controls only takes a few minutes. Move with DualShock 4′s left analog stick, fire with the right. Your ship has a boost attack, bombs, and a devastating overdrive attack - all executed with the triggers.
But getting caught up in the pounding, explosive flow of Resogun will inevitably lead to score chasing and an almost meditative state, as bullets coat the screen and explosions churn with the thump of the music. Resogun has killer sound design, which amps up the pace of each level - the perfect...
7w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino shared a video today which offers a deeper look at the PS4 world of Knack on PlayStation 4.
To quote: Hello, everyone. We're coming to the final stretch before the launch of PS4, as well as Knack, a game I've been honored to be a part of. It has been great working with the very talented folks at Japan Studio, not to mention Mark Cerny, a true living legend.
Our goal with Knack was to deliver a different kind of experience for PlayStation fans at launch, outside of the realm of gritty shooters and mature action games.
Knack harkens back to the golden days of Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter, when controls were simpler, but challenges were large enough that those control schemes had to be mastered by anyone intending to finish the games. So, who better to create a game like that than one of the creative forces that brought Crash and Jak to life, Mark Cerny himself?
Knack has a lot to offer, so I'm excited to be able to share some new details on the story, and some of the cool transformations that Knack takes on during the game.
The story, of course, revolves around Knack, mankind's secret weapon against the goblin...
