Set to roll out this summer on PS3 and PS4 - followed by PS Vita and an array of internet connected devices such as 2014 BRAVIA TVs - PS Now will enable users to stream a library of PS3 titles in real time over the internet.

Hands-on with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4

37w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is back with a hands-on peek with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4 below!

To quote: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is not a simple, upscaled version of last year's critically-acclaimed adventure. It's a colossal effort, soaked in visual enhancements and technical optimizations. Just when we thought Lara Croft hit her peak, she keeps on climbing.

One of the first challenges Crystal Dynamics faced was Lara herself - even though the team had smashed expectations with the impressive original game. A new head and face model have been implemented in this portrayal of Lara, bringing new life to the legendary heroine.

Among the torrent of improvements made, the developers worked with subsurface scattering technology on Lara's skin. This means light will actually pierce the top layer of her skin and diffuse, giving it a realistic glow.

Lara's equipment has also been given abundant attention. Her bow and pickaxe clatter, bob, and move with her body, giving her entire character a renewed sense of authenticity. She sweats and bleeds like the best of us when put under extreme duress, and the remarkable animation and voice work continue to instill Lara with life.

There was no slowing down for Crystal Dynamics after...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Dying Light PS4 on PlayStation 4

45w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Dying Light PS4 on PlayStation 4.

Below are the details, to quote: The art of parkour already has ample thrills for any athlete. You certainly don't need hordes of snarling ghouls nipping at your heels to make it any more exhilarating, but Dying Light blends the two together in a huge world devastated by the undead apocalypse.

Designed by the same team that brought Dead Island to the gaming masses, Dying Light is a first-person survival game. It boasts a new combat system and tremendous player freedom in complex environments. It also, as you might expect, includes lots and lots of infected (and ways to kill them, too).

The developers at Techland brought Dying Light to the PS4 launch event here in New York City this week, demonstrating the broad array of tactical options players have to approach any situation in game. Both combat and movement are essential components to the experience - running away from danger is just about as much fun as running straight into it.

Dying Light is set inside the wrecked and ruined city of Harran, a fictional locale with an ancient history. Game Designer Maciej Binkowski likens it to Istanbul, Turkey, as he boots up Dying Light on PS4, passing me the DualShock 4 with an eager...
 

Sony Goes Hands-On with Need for Speed Rivals for PlayStation 4

45w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Need for Speed Rivals for PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: When the idyllic forests and glittering coasts of Redview County are screaming by your window, there's precious little time to appreciate online functionality like Alldrive. Which, in a way, suggests how well it's been implemented in the blazing-fast Need for Speed Rivals.

From the newly minted Ghost Games in Gothenburg, Sweden, Rivals launches alongside PS4 on November 15th. It puts players firmly behind the wheel of either a cop or racer in a massive network of roads, laced through boiling desert and rainy hills.

Rivals made an impressive appearance at the PS4 launch event here in New York City, with a live demonstration of the Alldrive multiplayer functionality, and even a few perilous night races using PS Vita Remote Play.

With DualShock 4 in hand, I dropped into Redview - which was heavily inspired by the California coast - where several players were already burning through the map. Ghost Games' Founder Marcus Nilsson was at my side as a fellow cop.

No pressure. Pulling up alongside his beautiful patrol car, he started a pursuit event. One touch of L1 and we were in the event together, chasing after a group of racers...
 

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

45w 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...
