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

38w ago - Below is a demonstration video of unofficial PS4 Keyboard and Mouse support for PlayStation 4 games courtesy of electrical engineer and DIY hobbyist Frank Zhao (aka frank26080115) via Eleccelerator (linked above).

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).

Luftrausers Launches Today on PS3 and PlayStation Vita Platforms

41w ago - Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced that Luftrausers launches today on PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: We started Luftrausers halfway through 2011, when Jan Willem at Vlambeer was staring out of a window on a late flight from San Francisco to Amsterdam after the annual Game Developers Conference. He decided he wanted to expand on a little prototype we made back in 2010.

The pitch Jan Willem had for me was simple: the prototype had been made in two days, but had been played by hundreds of thousands of people. Jan Willem felt we might've run into something special with the simple high score game we had released for free to the internet. We started working on the very first version of our little 2D dogfighting game in just four colors.





We made a deal not to play the original until the new version was as good as we remembered the original to be, and we were surprised at how much of a struggle that was.

We added bigger explosions, we worked on a dynamic camera system, we added trails of smoke on crashing jets, and we even added extra colors to the palette. It still took us almost a month to achieve the same level of speed, of chaos, and of impact that the far simpler...
 

Video: What is N++? An Intro to the PlayStation 4 Action-Platformer

200°
43w ago - Metanet Co-Founder Mare Sheppard is here today with an introduction video to their PlayStation 4 action-platformer called N++ below.

To quote: Hi everyone! This is Metanet, back with another update. Since our last post, we've been focused on getting N++ into an alpha state, which has mostly involved adding all of the particle effects, sounds, and animation that help to really bring things to life.

While the main core of the game has been working for a while, it's nice to finally see things with more bells and whistles!

We've also been making and arranging levels - a continuous process that will go on right up until the game ships - as well as doing some playtesting. People are responding well to the new levels so far, although we may have made some of them a bit too hard.

The good news is: we now have a playable demo which we'll be showing soon at [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links]. If you'll be at either of those events, please stop by and check it out!

For those of you who don't really know what N++ is, today we're going to delve further into one simple question: "What is N++?"

Video: Sci-fi Adventure Forma 8 is Coming to PS4 and PS Vita

43w ago - MixedBag Cofounder Mauro Fanelli shared a video trailer today announcing that Sci-fi Adventure Forma 8 is coming to both PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

Below are the details, as follows: Hi! Italian indie studio [Register or Login to view links] here again. Last Tuesday, we announced our crazy shoot 'em up Futuridium EP Deluxe, coming exclusively to PS Vita. Today, we're here to bring you more PlayStation love.

Our big project - the one we opened MixedBag for - is a game we always wanted to make. We're immensely proud (drumroll) to announce forma.8, coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

forma.8 is an action adventure game and our own personal take on the classic Metroidvania formula. We started working on forma.8 more than two years ago, beginning with a little gameplay concept centered on an experimental control system for touch devices. It evolved into an adventure of epic proportions.





In the distant future, a small exploration probe, forma.8, is stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. It was parted from its companions by chance, and has a life or death mission to accomplish: it must find and recover a powerful energy source deep under the surface before it's too late.
