8w ago - Now that you can pre-order PlayStation 4 titles such as Knack and Warframe on Sony's PSN Store, they have adapted a new PS4 digital DRM (Digital Rights Management) policy as detailed below.
To quote: "With the PlayStation Store, you can download your games to two systems. However, playing those games is a different story. When you're on your primary system, the one you use all the time, you can play as you normally would.
But to play on another system, the owner of the game must be signed into his or her PSN account. So for instance if I go to a friend's house and want to play Knack, I need to stay signed into my PSN account in order for us to continue playing. If I am on my PS4, I can play it without signing in.
This is different from the current digital DRM practice with the PS3 where you can download on up to two systems, but don't need to be signed in with the purchasing account to play said game.
The PlayStation 4 will be available in the US on November 15th and Europe on November 29th."
8w ago - Sony PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks PS3 and PSN Game Store updates below, as follows:
Mankind must turn to Knack, an unlikely hero, to protect them from a dangerous new threat. The unassuming Knack stands at a mere three feet tall, but thanks to the power of mysterious ancient relics, he can transform into a powerful brute or even a gigantic wrecking machine.
Knack is mankind's only hope for turning the tide against the invading goblin army, but trying to harness the true power of the relics could threaten to put the whole world at risk.
From Mark Cerny, one of the greatest minds in video games today, Knack is a fun-filled adventure of colossal proportions that invites players to wield fantastic powers and discover a unique and vibrant world, available exclusively for the PlayStation 4 system.

9w ago - Casual Brothers designer Nacho Sanchez announced that Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion is out today on PlayStation Store.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi, my name is Nacho Sanchez, and I'm a designer on Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion.
We're a little development studio, and most of the guys on our team are Spanish, but we work out of England. We're finally done with our first game and we'd love to share some of the finer points with you.
When we first sat down and got Orc Attack running about two years ago, our team realized we had created a silly, sophomoric game. I mean, it's called Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion, so right there you know it's going to be for the gamer that enjoys joking about farts and burps, and what happens when you combine them.
We know that before games got a little too serious, and the lead characters all started looking like bald, meaty marines with green goatees, that there was a long line of fun, silly games that were wildly successful that are similar in concept.
We loved playing Earthworm Jim and Booger Man on our 16-bit systems and, while not so much about farting and burping, the seminal indie game Castle Crashers was definitely another influence on Orc Attack.
Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion follows the classic...
