1w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer announced today that The Last of Us Remastered is coming to PS4 in Summer 2014.

Below are the details, as follows: Well, it's no secret that we have been working night and day at the studio to bring The Last of Us to PS4. We're calling it The Last of Us Remastered.

Moving our efforts to the PS4 has allowed us to remaster an already phenomenal looking The Last of Us in 1080p with a list of upgrades including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements.

We love setting challenging technical hurdles for us when working on each game - and this is no different. We've been working hard on The Last of Us Remastered to release a next-gen evolution worthy of the 200+ Game of the Year awards, not to mention the acclaim and expectations of our fans. We will be revealing more detailed information about the upgrades for the PS4 version in the coming months.

In addition to all the technical updates, we're also including an exclusive director's commentary for all in-game cinematics featuring Creative Director and Writer, Neil Druckmann; Voice Actor, Troy Baker, who plays Joel; and BAFTA Award winning Voice Actress, Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie.

We've...

1w ago - MixedBag Cofounder Mauro Fanelli announced today that Futuridium EP Deluxe is coming to PS4 with details below.

To quote: Just a little over a month ago, we announced that our first game - the crazy fast-and-colourful space shooter, Futuridium - was coming to PS Vita in an all new, exclusive, greatly enhanced and expanded version titled Futuridium EP Deluxe.

And what was one of the first reactions we received from our dear PlayStation.Blog readers? "We want it on PS4, too! And fast!"

Duly noted. We just couldn't ignore such heartfelt appeals, and so after some help from the amazing European PlayStation team - and some wizardry (read: programming and boring stuff) - we can now announce that Futuridium EP Deluxe is coming soon to PS Vita and PS4, exclusively. Here's a little gameplay preview from the big console version:





For the readers not familiar with the game, Futuridium EP Deluxe is a fast, old-school shooter inspired mainly by the 8-bit classic Uridium, with an added hint of Zaxxon. Shake all that up in low-poly graphics, topped by a ton of fullscreen post processing effects, and served ice cold for your cube blasting pleasure.

As a lone...

To quote: This weekend, evil takes hold of our Bethesda Booth at PAX East in Boston, MA.

Throughout the day, we'll be doing the first North American public demonstrations of The Evil Within - the new survival horror game developed by Shinji Mikami and his Tango Gameworks team based in Tokyo, Japan.

During the demo, the game's main protagonist, Sebastian Castellanos, will square off against one of the game's most terrifying creatures: Boxman.

Be sure to stop by our booth and check out the presentation. And if you happen to dress up with The Evil Within cosplay, we'll reward you with a spot in the front of the line.





Can't make PAX? Be sure to watch our new PAX East trailer for a glimpse of the Boxman boss battle.

Stay tuned for more info on The Evil Within - coming to both PS4 and PS3 on August 26th.
 

Video: PS4 Keyboard and Mouse Support for PlayStation 4 Games Demo

To quote: Keyboard and Mouse for PlayStation 4 Games (second prototype)





Why did you do this?

I like playing shooter games on PC but my laptop is too weak to play them. Game consoles do not support USB keyboards and USB mouse, they only support gamepads. Gamepad controls are not suitable for shooter games, using a keyboard and mouse is much more comfortable for gameplay.

How does it work?

I designed a circuit that features a microcontroller and USB hub. The keyboard and mouse plugs into the USB hub, and then the microcontroller takes the data from the keyboard and mouse, translates them to the data format used by the PlayStation 4. It does the translation in a way as though the mouse was the right thumbstick, and the keys are mapped to buttons (the WASD keys are mapped to the left thumbstick).


 

Video: Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut Arrives on PS4 / PlayStation 4

2w ago - Born Ready Games Community Manager Jamin Smith posted up a video announcing that Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut arrives today on PS4 / PlayStation 4 consoles with details below.

To quote: Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is out today on PS4. Space combat has returned to consoles for the first time in what feels like millennia.

Strike Suit Zero was born out of a passion for space combat and the sad realisation that the genre was severely under-represented. As game developers, we had the opportunity to rectify that.

The Born Ready Games team grew up on a steady diet of Wing Commander, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, Freelancer, Freespace - all the classics from the 90′s heyday. We wanted to create a space dogfighter in the same vein, but with an updated look and feel that would make it relevant to today's audience.





The first thing we did was introduce a mech to the heart of the game. The Strike Suit - a fighter that can transform into a devastating suit of space armor at the touch of a button - eliminates issues with older games we refer to as "jousting" and "circle chasing."

The Strike Suit is quick and agile, allowing the player to turn 180 degrees quickly and take out any enemies that...
