To quote: Official Killzone Shadow Fall Game Page
It's been 30-odd years since the events of Killzone 3, and my, how things have changed. The fearsome Helghast are now refugees, their homeworld annihilated in a nuclear firestorm. In a desperate bid for survival, the surviving Helghast emigrate to an idyllic planet controlled by their mortal enemies, the ISA.
Unrest simmers, leading to the construction of a vast security wall intended to separate the Vektan haves from the Helghast have-nots. A long, fragile peace is shattered following a terrorist strike (seen in Killzone Shadow Fall's February 20th at PS4's debut conference), prompting the ISA leadership to bring out the big guns. That'd be you, elite Shadow Marshal operative Lucas Kellan. Your mission is simple: Restore order at any cost.
Launch game or no, Killzone Shadow Fall's campaign is a visual stunner on PS4, rendering a smorgasbord of reflections, dynamic lighting, and billowing smoke at a razor-sharp 1080p native resolution (1920 x 1080). It's as if developer Guerrilla Games wanted to cast off every...
6w ago - Compulsion Games Community and PR Manager Sam Abbott shared details today on the dark inspirations of Contrast on PS4.
To quote: Why hello there, Playstation.Blog readers. We hope you're sitting comfortably. If you're not, please do - grab yourself a tumbler, take a load off.
Tonight, we're taking you way back to the 1920′s, to a time where jazz was king and the world was getting back on its feet after a devastating war. It was a world of class, depression, and the working stiff. A time where suits weren't just what you wore to a job interview, and evening dresses fit women like gloves.
Welcome, to Contrast. I want to ask you a quick question before we start: when you were a kid, did you ever wish you could become your shadow?
Contrast is... unique. Set in a film noir inspired "dreamscape," the world of Contrast is centered around a little girl named Didi. Didi lives alone with her mother, Kat - a cabaret singer at the biggest show in town. Her father abandoned the family a little while back, which left them in real trouble.
In Contrast, you play an imaginary friend, Dawn. We were inspired by Pan's Labyrinth, where the main character is a little girl who invents an imaginary friend...

6w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford shared a new Tearaway PS Vita story trailer and details today on the upcoming PlayStation Vita title below!
To quote: The PlayStation.Blog team came to visit us at Mm towers recently to make a series of videos about our studio, and our latest game, Tearaway. This is the first video, which features Rex, Kenny (And me!) talking about Tearaway's world, story, and music.
What we don't talk about in the video enough are these guys, iota and atoi, the messengers. Tearaway differs from other games, in that you play alongside the main character, not as them.
You first meet iota or atoi at the start of our journey, when a strange message is sent to you from a papery dimension. Before you can read it, it falls back down into the papery world it came from, and comes to life.
Some villainous Scraps immediately try to stir up some trouble, but you sweep in and save the day using your giant fleshy fingers to squash them.
Glancing skywards at your face peeping through a hole in the sun, your messenger sees it was you that saved them, and from this moment forth the bond between you both will grow stronger and stronger.
