Sony India Leaks Rumored PlayStation 4 / PS4 250 GB Retail Pricing

650°
47w ago - Today GamingBolt.com (linked above) reports that Sony India's Web site has apparently leaked the rumored PlayStation 4 / PS4 250 GB SKU retail pricing with details below.

To quote: "Sony India apparently updated (now removed) their Web site to reveal the pricing for the upcoming next generation PlayStation 4 console. It listed the console along with a 250 GB hard disk drive as retailing for 399 Euros.

Of course, a while later, they realized their slip up and proceeded to delete the information. Not before other sites could latch on to the info however (thanks NeoGAF), and report on it.

As it stands, this would validate rumours that the PlayStation 4 would be retailing for $400 to $500 dollars (with 399 Euros roughly translating into $513). While we doubt that the price in the United States would be that much, we'd be surprised if Sony priced the console lower than $400.

Of course, this hasn't been officially announced by Sony worldwide - and they would at least use a platform like E3 2013 to announce the price of the device. So remain skeptical. It could very well have been a complete slip-up or just something completely wrong that couldn't be removed quick enough."


 

Just One More Minute: Taking to the Skies in Luftrausers Details

50°
47w ago - Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced today that fans can take to the skies in Luftrausers with details below, as follows:

LUFTRAUSERS is a short game. To be precise, it takes about thirty seconds. We're not talking in terms of hours you need to complete the campaign, although you technically could beat it within two minutes.

We're not even talking about how many hours you'll be playing the game in total. What we're talking about is the amount of time a single round of LUFTRAUSERS is going to take you.

When you boot the game for the first time on your PlayStation 3 or PS Vita, you'll see the logos of Vlambeer and Devolver Digital - as you'd expect. There'll be a short introductory cutscene, as a lone dot appears on enemy radar. A submarine rises from the water.

The structure of the game is really simple. You start out with the original LUFTRAUSER, the most powerful airplane ever built. It is launched perfectly vertical from a submarine that only submerges for the shortest of moments to allow you to establish yourself as the nightmare of the many enemies surrounding you.

A game of LUFTRAUSERS is essentially you trying to survive against increasing odds. While at first you might engage only basic fighter planes, it'll take an average player just moments to lure...
 

Sony Reveals The Current Divekick Character Roster, More Coming

51w ago - Creator Adam "Keits" Heart has revealed the current Divekick character roster below with more coming, as follows:

Seeing a character is one thing. Playing as them is another. But really, what you want deep down, is to get to know each of the playable characters in a fighting game. What are their motivations, birthdates, likes and dislikes?

Without this knowledge, how can you form the emotional bond needed to find success in Divekick? As such, we've collected each of the presently known characters' bios for you - tune into twitch.tv/irongalaxy every Monday at 9:00PM CST for new character and content reveals.

Dive

Health: 1,000 // Power: 1,000,000,000

Dive was raised in West Philadelphia with his fraternal twin brother, Kick. When trouble brewed at their local park, the boys' mother sent them to live with their Uncle Sensei in Bel Air to learn how to Divekick.

Dive strives to perfect the art of diving into the air, using his love of math to ensure that he is always at an angle that will lead him to victory. His massive study sessions and dedication to his schoolwork have left him with less time to focus on his kicking, however.

Date of Birth: 12/07/1988
Place of Birth: Philadelphia,...
 

The Many Classes of Zombie Tycoon 2: Samurai, Engineers and More

50°
52w ago - Frima Studio's Laurent Mercure outlined the many classes of Zombie Tycoon 2: Samurai, including Engineers and more below today.

To quote: When we announced the release of Zombie Tycoon 2 right here, we were purposely a bit vague about the gameplay. But, now that the game's release is only weeks away, we've got nothing to hide!

Zombie Tycoon 2 is a tactical real-time strategy game in which you will lay waste to your enemies by controlling two squads of zombies, one hero-like monster, and one zombie-spawning vehicle. We use the term 'tactical' because the game is all about managing your units and deciding how to tackle the warzone.

There are no resources to gather, no structures to build, and no tech-tree to climb. As you capture buildings, your zombie army grows, you unlock the ability to transform your zombies, your monster gains levels, and you expand your control over the battlefield.

Our biggest challenge as a developer was coming up with controls that not only work well, but feel intuitive on both PS3 and PS Vita. And guess what?

Impressions so far are unanimous: we pulled it off! Your squads of zombies are linked to two of your face buttons, while the other two buttons control your monster and your spawner. All four of your monster's active abilities are...
