23w ago - Digital Extremes Associate Producer Pat Kudirka detailed the PS4 pre-order bonuses today for Warframe on the PlayStation 4 video gaming system below.

To quote: We are less than a week away from the PS4 launch, and the Digital Extremes' team has been hard at work polishing up Warframe and getting it ready for its debut on launch day, when players turn on their PS4s for the first time. We're imagining the squeals of delight at the thought of firing that baby up on Day 1... ZOMG!

So, what have we been up to? In addition to working on the game, we've also been coming up with ways to help PS4 players get into the game quickly. Not too long ago, we released our special Warframe: Ultimate Fan Pack - a pre-order Pack specifically for PlayStation fans that includes an exclusive PlayStation Braton Rifle weapon skin, 50 Platinum, and 20,000 Credits.

With this pack you'll be able to get a step ahead of the enemy, and take advantage of items in the Market utilizing your Credits and Platinum (and look good doing it with your PlayStation branded Braton Rifle). Oh, and did we mention the pre-order and everything in the pack are absolutely free?

To get this pack on launch day (or when you get your PS4), you'll have to pre-order Warframe either through SEN on the web, or through PlayStation...

To quote: Hi everyone! I'm back with the second video in our series, taking a look at Tearaway and the things that we think make it special (the first came out last week).

This new video is all about the paper Tearaway is made from, and the papercraft models that you'll be able to make once the it comes out.

It also details tearaway.me, which will be the community site for the game where all your in-game photos and papercraft plans will be stored and shared from. The site isn't live yet, but it will be soon, so watch that space!





You can pre-order Tearaway now directly from PlayStation.Store, with both the Jukebox and Special Delivery options available, allowing you to choose from a great selection of pre-order bonuses, including a special skin for the rideable pig (and papercaft plan to match), the soundtrack, and even some special Messenger costumes for Sackboy!

Tearaway launches on November 22nd. So soon!
 

Cleaning Up with Dustforce on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, Details

50°
23w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared details today on cleaning up with Dustforce for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

To quote: Sprint, leap, and clean towards victory. Dustforce celebrates precision platforming, and embraces its 2D roots by spritzing the whole experience with colorful characters and a grooving anime twist. In Dustforce, players gun for the best time and most complete run through more than 50 stages.

Originally developed by a small indie team for the PC crowd, Capcom is bringing Dustforce to PS3 and PS Vita. All the charm and addictive play of the PC version returns, along with online multiplayer (ranked and private), shiny Trophies, and cross save support. Now the PlayStation community can train to become the greatest of ninja janitors the world has ever known.

The Capcom crew brought Dustforce by for Justin and me to play. Listen to our interview with them below, then read on for our full impressions.

Dustforce gives players room to breathe. At the start, stages are short, simple, and teach newcomers how to successfully navigate obstacles and clean up the most dust to achieve high scores. Jumps are cozy, and the levels themselves are designed to pull the player into a flow.

One run through a stage reveals the layout and enemy placement,...
