27w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced today that Daylight on PS4 dubbed The Power of the Unknown is slated to hit PlayStation 4 in 2014.

To quote: In an age of horror games with carefully crafted scares and achingly detailed environments, Zombie Studios is trying something new with its upcoming horror game, Daylight.

Players awake inside an abandoned hospital, with only the light of their cellphone to guide them through the thick black. But unlike other horror games, Daylight changes every time you play.

To better understand Daylight, and the scares within, we asked Zombie Studios Creative Director Andre Maguire to explain how the game came together and why procedurally generated scares give the horror genre a shot in the arm. Maguire also tells us about developing on PS4, and what inspirations fueled the team members in their creative process.

Daylight is tentatively scheduled to launch in early 2014.

PlayStation.Blog: What inspired the team at Zombie Studios to develop a hardcore horror title like Daylight, especially following successful first-person shooters such as Blacklight?

Andre Maguire: We love the horror genre, and we wanted to try and create a game that would be scary every time you played it. We knew that...

We're also releasing an exclusive Western Costume for $1.99 that will only be available in select SCEA territories. This costume will boost repair ability of the Spirit Vessel and improve sorcerous bullet power and repair speed.

Video: Dishonored Game of the Year Edition Hits PS3 Tomorrow

28w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff announced alongside a video that Dishonored Game of the Year Edition hits PS3 tomorrow.

To quote: It's hard to believe this week marks the one year anniversary of Dishonored's release. it's been rewarding to see so many people people get the game Arkane set out to develop.

It's wonderful and very humbling to see the game win numerous Game of the Year accolades (and be able to release a "Game of the Year Edition"), but there's even more satisfaction in hearing fans embracing the fiction and emergent gameplay.

When Arkane was making the final push on finishing the game, their building excitement to see the game in the wild was palpable - like children on Christmas Eve. Visions of YouTube speedruns danced in their heads.

They weren't disappointed. Launch day and the months that followed provided endless entertainment - seeing the variety of ways players took on the role of Corvo - non-lethal playthroughs, absolutely brutal and literally unthinkable killer moves, and everything in between.

Amazing cosplay, fan-fiction, and fan art embracing provided icing on the cake. You guys really like The Outsider.

28w ago - Armature Studio Technical Director and Co-Founder Jack Mathews confirmed today that Injustice: Gods Among Us hits PlayStation Vita on November 12, 2013.

To quote: Armature Studio is proud to announce our next game for PS Vita, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, is hitting stores on November 12th.

When developing Injustice on Vita, our primary goal was to make sure it could hold its own next to its console counterpart.

The PS3 version has beautiful lighting, destructible environments, and - most importantly - 60 FPS fighting. We worked tirelessly to bring this experience to the handheld, and pulled out all the stops to push the PS Vita as hard as we could to make all of the above happen.

In addition to all of this, we've included ad-hoc multiplayer, traditional multiplayer over wifi, and touch controls to Story Mode and various S.T.A.R. Labs Missions.

Also, since this is the Ultimate Edition, the game will include all downloadable content that was released for the console edition.

Our friends at NetherRealm Studios made such a wonderful game in Injustice: Gods Among Us. We're just happy to be able to use our experience on prior PS Vita projects to take what they did and spare no expense in creating a version of the game that allows people...
 

Video: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus Hits PS3 November 12th, 2013

28w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson announced today alongside a video that Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will be hitting PS3 on November 12th, 2013.

To quote: Everyone here at Insomniac has been working really hard to bring you Ratchet and Clank's latest adventure, Into the Nexus, and we're happy to announce that it will be available in stores and online on November 12th, 2013!

An epilogue to the Future games (Tools of Destruction, Quest For Booty, A Crack in Time), Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is packed with an all-new story, an all-new arsenal, and all-new gadgets - and it's only $29.99.

Some of you have asked us why we made a shorter Ratchet game. The truth is, we relished this ability to tie a bow on the PS3 era of Ratchet with a shorter title. All of us love the Ratchet universe - and after 12 years developing the series, it feels like a very close friend.

We have a lot of stories to tell, some longer, some shorter. This one felt just right. It's a very polished self-contained return to the Ratchet adventures of yore. It's impactful, too; filled with planet-hopping, guns blazing, joke-cracking Ratchet & Clank, and events happen here that will change Ratchet forever. Think of it as a small epic.

Another question we get asked a lot is how...
