3w ago - Sony Hardware Brand Marketing Manager Crystal MacKenzie announced details on some Black Friday deals for PS3, PS Vita, and PlayStation Plus today!
To quote: November has been a huge month for PlayStation, and there's never been a better time to join PlayStation Nation. We've got some incredible Black Friday deals for PS3, PS Vita, PS Plus and more, to keep November going strong.
We're putting two of the most popular PS3 titles of 2013 together to bring you the PS3 Black Friday Bundle for only $199 (MSRP). This bundle includes a 250GB PS3, Batman Arkham Origins, and The Last of Us - one of the highest-rated games of the year. That's $165 worth of savings.
So Black Friday is the perfect time to pick up a PS3, and we're continuing to bring you great content on the platform. Gran Turismo 6, the latest entry in one of the most popular franchises in PlayStation history, will launch exclusively on PS3 on December 6th. Not to mention blockbusters like Grand Theft Auto V, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, Battlefield 4...
It's also a great time to pick up a PS Vita, so you can play Tearaway - which launched today to stellar reviews - and recent hits like Killzone Mercenary, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition,...
3w ago - Spearhead Games Co-founder Simon Darveau shared a video today announcing that Tiny Brains is launching on December 3rd for PlayStation 4.
To quote: Hi! It's Simon from Spearhead Games, here again to talk about our upcoming PS4 co-op puzzler Tiny Brains. We finished our very last updates earlier this week, and we're finally done - it feels so weird to write that after Tiny Brains consumed my entire life for more than a year, but it's true.
The whole team is incredibly proud to be bringing Tiny Brains to PS4 on December 3rd. Thanks to PlayStation's support of indies, we were given the option to be featured on PlayStation Plus for the launch - it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up!
So look out for Tiny Brains soon, and in the meantime, I wanted to share our brand new launch trailer, and tell you a bit about how we're trying to get you back in the living room for some old school co-op with a next-gen twist.
When I was a kid, one of the best feelings in the world was getting a new game and rushing home to call my friends to come over and play. Crowded together in front of the screen, all excited to game late into the night; elbowing for room on the couch, gloating and swapping tips - these things are what gave me a lifelong love of video games.
3w ago - Today Kotaku (via Digital Foundry) shared a video demo on running PlayStation 4 / PS4 games (with latency) through XBox One's HDMI input with details below.
To quote: You Can Play PS4 Through Xbox One, But You Probably Wouldn't Want To.
What happens when you plug a PlayStation 4's HDMI cable into the back of an Xbox One? The same thing that happens to everything else.
The fine folks at DigitalFoundry plugged their PlayStation 4 into the Xbox One's HDMI input and - contrary to my fevered speculation - a singularity was not formed. Instead, they got the PS4 video in their Xbox One dashboard.
From there they could navigate PlayStation menus, fiddle about with settings, or even launch a game, though lag issues make it a less-than-ideal means of doing so.
Either way, it's lovely to see the two of them getting along so well.
