Sony Goes Hands-On with Infamous Second Son on PlayStation 4

50°
59w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Infamous Second Son on PlayStation 4.

Below are the details, to quote: Things don't go as planned for Delsin Rowe, the smug but likeable hero of Infamous Second Son. Following the catastrophic events that shook the world in the first two games, Delsin's super-powered status as a Conduit is laid bare after exposure to other superhumans.

Delsin can absorb the powers of others, and then employ them for his own devices. He has serious potential, and that immense potential was on display during the PS4 launch event here in New York City this week.

This third-person, superhero action game already looks electric running on PS4, with fluid animations and sharp bursts of light around every rain-soaked corner.

At the event, we join Delsin and his cop brother Reggie as they attempt to pass through a Department of Unified Protection (DUP) security checkpoint. Their dark, menacing uniforms stand in stark contrast with the bright yellows of warning signs that litter the scene.

But unfortunately for Delsin, things don't go as planned.

Sure enough, Delsin's spectacular abilities trigger an automated warning at the checkpoint, and the DUP descends upon him with rifles ready. This is where the first...
 

Video: Sony Goes Hands-on with The Witness on PS4 / PlayStation 4

61w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with The Witness on PlayStation 4 with a fresh PS4 video trailer below, as follows:

Shortly after I heard the phrase "PlayStation 4" for the very first time, I received a blog post, a [Register or Login to view links] and a [Register or Login to view links] for a game called The Witness, from legendary game designer, Jonathan Blow. This was my first exposure to the impending next generation of video games.

My excitement for The Witness may, admittedly, be amplified by my sentimental nature (it is the first PS4 game I ever laid eyes on, after all). After getting a chance to play it at an event last week, however, I'm relieved to know that my excitement is justified.

Jonathan Blow helped to bring mainstream attention to the indie game development movement with his modern classic, Braid, which famously twisted the minds of gamers worldwide into knots. As such, it should be expected that the challenges you'll face in The Witness will put your mental capacity to the test.

Thankfully, you won't jump straight into the mind-numbing brain-twisters - The Witness is designed in such a way that you'll be gradually introduced...
 

Video: Sony Goes Hands-on with NBA 2K14 on PS4 / PlayStation 4

61w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 4 complete with a PS4 video below.

To quote: The dedicated team behind the next-gen edition of NBA 2K14 has an eye for detail. And not just a normal, everyday eye; they have hundreds of eyes, hell-bent on making this the best basketball experience in video game history.

Their passion just about bled onto the floor of a crowded San Francisco bar earlier this week as they presented NBA 2K14 running on PS4. It was easy to see, from the first trailer to the final multiplayer tease, that NBA 2K14 is visually arresting, and damn fun to play.

As the footage of NBA 2K14 looped over the massive bar displays, the team were insistent that the PS4 version was not a simple port job. It was built from the ground up for next-gen tech, and they made their point by announcing the brand new engine powering the action: Ecomotion.

The art assets in NBA 2K14 have been built from scratch - not a single legacy piece of art remains from the current-gen version. As Studio Art Director Anton Dawson said at the demonstration, making this look like a real, next-gen basketball game came down to "thousands of little things, and the interconnectedness of those thousands of little things."

Since the release of God of War: Ascension last March, we have supported Multiplayer with a vast amount of DLC - from new weapons and maps, to our brutal 1v1 mode, a fan-driven cape contest, new marks, and more. Even the Gods could not have predicted the level of popularity and impassioned connection to our Multiplayer mode driven by the PlayStation Nation.

As of today, we will not be producing any more DLC content (maps, weapons, armors, marks) for God of War: Ascension Multiplayer, as our primary...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Child of Light for PS4 / PlayStation 4

50°
67w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements has went hands-on today with Child of Light PS4 for the upcoming PlayStation 4 video gaming console.

To quote: With a small build, dainty crown, and a sword too big too wield, Aurora is an unlikely heroine for an adventure. And yet how perfect a character, and champion, for Ubisoft's upcoming JRPG tribute, Child of Light.

This dazzling array of fantasy aims to open the gates to the world of JRPGs for all gamers, welcoming both long-time enthusiasts and complete newcomers.

It's disarmingly beautiful, lacquered in charm, complexly elegant, and even a little haunting. It's scheduled for launch sometime in 2014, on PS3 and PS4.

Aurora, our star of the show, is a petite fairy of a girl, and daughter to a duke from Austria. She finds herself in a mysterious land called Lemuria, enjoying the company of an agile little flame named Igniculus. Her adventures to defeat the Black Queen will take her through a host of mystic environs in search of answers and, more importantly, home.

Child of Light is built with the same engine that powers Ubisoft's recent Rayman games: the dazzling UbiArt Framework. This means Child of light is built with layer upon layer of breathtaking, HD artwork. The characters and scenery move and leap...
