Sony Introduces Mighty No. 9 for PlayStation 3, Details Available

50°
65w ago - 8-4 Ltd Executive Director Mark MacDonald introduced Mighty No. 9 for PlayStation 3 today with details below.

To quote: What are you gonna be doing come Spring of 2015? No plans yet? Well here's one appointment to put on your calendar a bit early: Mighty No. 9!

Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game coming to the PlayStation 3 (and maybe PS4 and even Vita! But more on that later...) that harkens back to the best aspects of the old 8- and 16-bit classics many of us grew up with, only evolved and transformed into something only possible today.

As the titular hero (known as Beck), you'll need to run, jump, and blast your way through your fellow Mighty Number robots, stealing their powers to fuel your unique skill to transform your body into new shapes for added abilities!

Maybe your limbs could become giant magnets, enabling you to walk up walls or rip away enemy shields... Or maybe extendible spring-loaded hands would let you to activate far-away switches or work as a grappling hook...

Or a tank-like body might let you easily cross over spikes or push objects around the levels... These are just a few possibilities we're considering (the game is still in the design phase), but you get the idea!

You might know Mighty No. 9's...
 

Sony PlayStation 4 Audio Processor (ACP) PS4 Details Surface

200°
65w ago - Following up on the previous PS4 updates, today details on the PlayStation 4 Audio Processor (ACP) have surfaced from Sony documention.

To quote (via VGLeaks.com, linked above): "Mark Cerny confirmed in an interview that PlayStation 4 uses hardware expressly dedicated to audio tasks. What are the capabilities of this hardware? What is Sony telling to developers about it?

Here we have some material from Sony’s presentations where you can learn more about audio custom hardware in PS4. This dedicated hardware will manage basic tasks, for game or system, relying on the CPU or GPU for advanced tasks.

Another important point is that this audio block is not programmable by developers directly, they could only access it via OS."

PS4 Audio Processor (ACP)

  • Custom Audio Block
  • Access mediated by OS
  • Not programmable by game teams
  • Performs encoding and decoding
  • Game: 200+ MP3 or equivalent streams
  • System: Encoding and decoding for voice chat, etc...
  • Filtering and effects performed by game code
  • Presumably CPU, but GPGPU is also a possibility
