11w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with the Destiny PlayStation 4 Beta with details below.

To quote: Today, PS4 and PS3 owners will get a chance to experience Bungie's galaxy-spanning epic [Register or Login to view links] for the first time.

Assuming the role of a newly revived Human, Awoken, or Exo, players will explore the ruins of a Russian Cosmodrome and battle hordes of formidable Fallen and feral Hive, all while earning new skills and collecting increasingly effective weapons and armor.

The crisp new presentation banishes those nasty jaggies to the margins, while higher resolution environment textures adorn the lovingly crafted post-apocalyptic environments.

But the kicker is the new framerate. I'll admit to being at least a bit skeptical on hearing that Naughty Dog would target a smoother, more fluid 60 frames per second for The Last of Us Remastered. I wondered whether it would add a distracting layer of artificiality, that it might somehow interfere with the game's cinematic look and feel.

For those who may not know it, Puddle is a liquid-physics based platformer, in which you have to reach the end of a level with the greatest amount of liquid and as fast as possible.

Puddle features 49 remastered levels in a wide range of environments. It's also got two difficulty modes, so you can enjoy Puddle even if you're not a hardcore player.

With DualShock 4, you can either play with the R2 and L2 buttons, the controller's built-in motion sensors, or the touchpad! Additionally, the controller's Light Bar will change as you progress through the different worlds of Puddle.

You can get Puddle for $7.99 , which will net you both the PS4 and PS Vita versions of the game. If you have already bought the game on Vita, it will be made accessible for PS4 at launch. We hope you'll enjoy Puddle on PS4!

14w ago - Following up on their Urban Camouflage and Glacier White DS4 models, today Sony announced that the Wave Blue DualShock 4 Controller is coming to the United States this Fall with details below.

To quote: "While the DualShock 4 controller is (arguably) the best PlayStation controller ever built, it could stand to be a bit more stylish. This fall, it will get some color with the release of a Wave Blue controller.

As you can see from the gallery below, this thing looks slick! The entire controller isn’t blue, just the face. This design choice makes it look that much more distinctive and eye pleasing.

Other than “Fall” we don’t have a concrete release date but when we find out we’ll let you guys know. In the meantime, check out the pretty pictures below."
