Video: New Driveclub PS4 Demo Shows Day / Night Transition

100°
32w ago - Evolution Studios Community Manager Jamie Brayshaw is here with a new Driveclub PS4 demo video today which shows day / night transition below.

To quote: Check out the latest in the series of our #DRIVECLUB direct feed videos. This time, we showcase the dynamic shift in the time of day, set against the stunning Salar de Surire in Chile between 18:00 and 21:00.

13 things we'd like you to know about this video:

1. If you'd like to see a version of the video with significantly higher image quality than shown on YouTube (and a closer representation of how the game looks on PS4), you'll be able to download the 1080p video online soon.

2. The time of day is accelerated by x60, which is why the video covers from 6pm - 9pm in Chile in just three laps. Accelerating the speed of time is something you can choose to adjust before you race and it's also why the sunlight disappears so quickly at 1:58.

3. Design Director Paul Rustchynksy is the driver. He's using a Thrustmaster "T80 DRIVECLUB Edition" wheel, which explains why his last lap (in first person racing view) is the fastest.

4. The video was captured in one take from a version of the game still in development. Optimisations to the visual quality of the game are made every...

Video: KickBeat Never Ends - How to Make Your Own KickBeat Tracks

50°
35w ago - Zen Studios Community Manager Bobby Loertscher posted up a video today demonstrating to fans how to make your own KickBeat tracks.

Below are the details, to quote: In case you haven't heard, KickBeat is coming out for PS Vita and PS3 on September 3 and supports Cross-Buy.

If you are headed to PAX in a few weeks, make sure to stop by the PlayStation booth and play the game before it releases! HUGE thanks to Sony for having us in their booth at PAX!

One of the coolest things about KickBeat is that the game really never ends. Yes, we give you 18 licensed tracks in the single player campaign, but we thought that many of you would love to experiment with your own music and make your own KickBeat levels.

If you really want to beat your enemies to the latest Bieber track, well, you can do that in the privacy of your own screen.

The process of creating your own KickBeat tracks is quite simple and we do 99% of the work for you. We made a nice little video outlining the process of using your own music to make KickBeat tracks:





We have been experimenting with many different kinds of music, ranging from classical to rap, dubstep and even metal. It's really fun to see what kind of fight...

Video: Gran Turismo 6 E3 2013 PS3 Trailer Shows Willow Springs

45w ago - Sony Associate Product Manager Ken Chan posted up a new Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) E3 2013 PS3 trailer video which shows Willow Springs and GT3 race cars below.

To quote: 2013 Press Conference, we proudly presented a new trailer showing highlights and new evolutions developed exclusively for GT6.

Without giving too much of the trailer away, pay attention to the effects of the new physics engine as it accounts for all the intricacies and complexities of a car's behavior, especially during cornering.

With help from KW Automotive, the suspension system of each vehicle, most notably the shocks, more accurately showcase how a car reacts to various lateral loads, reproducing body roll and wheel slip in an amazingly real manner.

Polyphony Digital worked closely with Yokohama Rubber Corporation to produce a new tire model that reflects the tire compound, tire structure and changes in characteristics during extreme load conditions.

Improving the overall look of GT6 is Adaptive Tessellation, the next generation in 3D model rendering technology. Tessellation involves dividing a polygon into multiple geometric tiles; Adaptive Tessellation takes that science one step further by automatically dividing the polygons to become finer according to the viewing distance and position.
