To quote: Happy GDC! Today we're announcing that we will continue to strengthen our support for the global independent developer community by introducing more tools and middleware solutions for PS4.

SCE has entered into strategic partnerships to bring new native solutions from popular middleware vendors GameMaker: Studio and MonoGame to PS4, further expanding an already robust set of development tools.

We're also announcing that fully integrated solutions for Unity are now available for PS3 and PS Vita, with the highly anticipated early access version for PS4 coming in April 2014.

Unity, GameMaker: Studio and MonoGame represent the most popular game development tools leveraged by universities and independent developers alike, and are used for both prototyping and full-scale game development.

Jointly developed by SCE and YoYo Games, a GameMaker: Studio-native solution for PS4 is now available free for all SCE-licensed developers, making it even easier for developers to bring their 2D games to the more than 6 million global PS4 owners.

5w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced today that Stealth Inc: Ultimate Edition is out today on PS4.

To quote: Hey everyone, Rob from Curve here. We're happy to announce our very first PlayStation 4 title - Stealth Inc: Ultimate Edition - is out in stores this week.

We originally released Stealth Inc last year for PlayStation Vita and...
 

Sony Announces Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is Out Today

5w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is officially out today on PS4 and PS3 consoles.

To quote: Snake moves across the dirt and rock with immaculate care, crawling in silence as rain soaks his suit. He blends into the darkness, and the passing chopper screeches overhead in ignorance of his trespassing.

As the camera pans to reveal his face, each wrinkle on his brow betrays his great military experience and troubled past. But this is just another mission for the iconic hero, who returns to PlayStation today in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for PS3 and PS4.

Following the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Ground Zeroes finds Big Boss infiltrating a military compound in Cuba, with a mission to extract two high-value targets before they're executed... or worse. Ground Zeroes establishes the initial story arc that will continue in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Think of Ground Zeroes as an appetizer to the main course.

The talented team at Kojima Productions have worked marvels on PS4, lending a breath-taking sense of realism to Ground Zeroes and the characters therein. The character models and animation have reached new heights for the series, while the large military base brims with detail, both large...
 

D-Pad Studio Announces That Savant Ascent is Coming to PS4

5w ago - Today D-Pad Studio's Jo-Remi Madsen announced that Savant Ascent PS4 is coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Hey everyone! My name is Jo from D-Pad Studio, and it's our pleasure to announce that Savant Ascent, a game about robot infested towers, magic missiles, and claiming ultimate power, is coming to Playstation.

Music and style are what the game is all about! Savant in real life is an electronic musician, and in the game you play as Savant as he appears on Savant's 5th album cover, designed by our art director, Simon S. Andersen.

Our team has been close friends with Savant for a long time, and last summer we decided that:

• We should create a game together.
• We'd use Savant's music and Simon's characters as inspiration.

We ended up with a beat-pumping, dodge-and-shoot action game, stylized to fit with Savant's tracks. Tracks could be unlocked, giving you an introduction to Savant's music, and also acting as powerful upgrades. This makes you feel like nothing can stop you once you get the hang of things.

We didn't think it was enough to only be able to shoot magic missiles and defeat robots, so we added some varying stages,...
