Ex-Sony Engineer Kazuya Sakakihara Left His Name Inside Every PS4

400°
2w ago - Today Kotaku reports that Ex-Sony Engineer Kazuya Sakakihara left his name inside every PlayStation 4 console, and requires no PS4 decryption to see it because it's written as a text string.

Below are the details, to quote: "Kazuya Sakakihara spent ten years working at Sony as a senior software engineer, helping bring both the PS3 and PS4 to the world. He's no longer at the company (parting ways in early 2013), but before he left he made sure his name quite literally lives on inside the code of pretty much every PlayStation 4.

As you can see here, in this snippet sent in by [Register or Login to view links], Sakakihara has left his name inside the PS4's HDD code. Now, coders leaving "calling cards" is nothing new, it happens all the time, but it's usually left in the "[Register or Login to view links]", the parts where humans leave human messages for other humans. And even then, it's often in the form of initials. Sakakihara's full name is lying there in the actual code, and doesn't require any kind of decryption to see it.

Sure beats scrawling it on the bathroom wall on his last day at the office.

Interestingly, his name also has a typo. I wonder if that was just that, a typo, or whether it was a concession...

Sony Announces Freedom Wars: Special Operations Start Today

250°
3w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino announced that Freedom Wars: Special Operations start today with details below.

To quote: My fellow sinners,

Let me be the first to say that I've been completely overwhelmed by all of the love we've seen for Freedom Wars since we launched last Tuesday - I can't say thank you enough.

Reviews have been great, the online battles have been intense, and I've had the pleasure of fighting alongside some of the most amazing Sinners I'd ever imagined. It's hard to believe how many of you are already at CODE 7 and 8.

But what's left to challenge you after you've reached CODE 8? What kind of extra-tough challenges are there to keep you busy once your Panopticon is at the top of the charts? Allow me to introduce the downloadable "Special Operations" - extra difficult missions meant only for the highest-level teams out there, rotating in and out on a daily basis.

"But what's in it for me?" you might ask. What if I told you that certain rare resources will only be available to those who complete these Special Operations? That the key to completing that weapon you've dreamed of lies within one of these extra difficult missions? Tempted?

I hope so, because that's exactly what's at stake here. Co-op is highly recommended...

Sony Announces Dragon Age: Inquisition is Great for Newcomers

100°
3w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced today that Dragon Age: Inquisition is great for newcomers to PS4 and PS3.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links], the latest chapter in BioWare's sweeping fantasy saga, wastes no time beginning its urgent, world-splitting story.

Truth be told, the developers have sewn a great amount of detail onto the main menu alone. Starting a new game catapults the idyllic scene of a snowy peace summit into utter devastation. And that's just the menu.

For those who have followed previous chapters of Dragon Age, the story is dense and rich with lore. But when a seething, green portal opens in our world and welcomes in legions of demons, players have a straightforward cause to rally behind.

In Dragon Age: Inquisition, players follow the story of a survivor that emerges from this demonic blast (almost) unscathed. The site of the explosion had been host to a peace summit organized by Divine Justinia, who sought an end to the strife between mages and Templars. With those plans wholly awry, the main character – the Inquisitor – is tasked with upholding Justinia's legacy and hunting down the demonic agents haunting the realm.
