Sony Announces Sportsfriends Vaults to PS4 / PlayStation 4 Soon

50°
26w ago - Sony Producer Doug Wilson announced that Sportsfriends is vaulting to the upcoming PS4 / PlayStation 4 video game console soon!

To quote: Hello PlayStation peoples, By now you've seen our upcoming game Sportsfriends, right? Local multiplaaaaaayer represent!

Last time I posted here was during E3, to tell you all about some of the new features. This time, I just want to share a simple announcement... We're bringing Sportsfriends to PlayStation 4!

Better yet, those who backed our PS3 version on Kickstarter will be entitled to download the PS4 version for free. (For everyone else, we're still determining whether we'll be doing cross-buy.)

We don't have an exact release date for the PS4 version, and it will likely come after the PS3 debut. But a PS4 version will come in the not-so-distant future.

Personally, I'm especially excited to get my game J.S. Joust running on DualShock 4. That thing even has a light bar on it!

Meanwhile, we're still working on an exact release date for our PS3 debut. We're not quite there yet, but we're getting close; our current plan is January. All four Sportsfriends games...
 

Video: Strider Hands-on: Remember Your Ninja Training on PS3 / PS4

50°
27w ago - Capcom Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a fresh video today reminding fans to remember their ninja training for Strider coming to both PS3 and PS4 platforms.

To quote: Amidst a flurry of snow and the lazy trundle of passing airships, Strider Hiryu blazes across the screen, cutting down any and all that stand in his way. This classic ninja hero returns in Strider, a rebirth of the side-scrolling classic made famous in late '80s arcades.

The new Strider, which launches in early 2014 for PS3 and PS4, enhances the fast-paced spectacle of the original with HD visuals, while preserving the frantic combat and momentum that long-time fans will fondly remember.

Set in a dark and oppressed future, the world suffers under the tyranny of Grand Master Meio, the complete ruler of the planet. Players control Strider Hiryu, along with his indestructible Cypher weapon, in order to terminate Meio and restore balance to Earth's governments.

As the youngest Special-A Class recruit in the Strider program, Hiryu catapults into this mission, empowering players with a variety of eye-searing attacks.

Strider is a side-scrolling action platformer, set on one sprawling map. Similar to other RPG-influenced side scrollers, like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Hiryu...

Hands-on with Deep Down on PS4: Ambitious Dungeon Crawling

50°
29w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton went hands-on today with Deep Down on PS4, which he states offers some ambitious dungeon crawling!

Below are the details, to quote: Tokyo Game Show was arguably a little light on big, never-before-seen new games this year.

Sure, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Driveclub, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, Resogun, and the like were all present, correct, and looking very shiny. But if you were after something truly fresh out of the oven, pickings were slim.

There were a handful of exceptions, of course: Yakuza Ishin from Sega (as yet unconfirmed for a Western release), the very sexy looking Soul Sacrifice Delta on PS Vita, and Deep Down - Capcom's ambitious PS4 exclusive.

Along with Yakuza, Deep Down was the game that scored the biggest queues at the show, and my very first port of call. On the face of it, it looks like something gamers will have played more than a few times before.

You step into the sabatons of an armour-clad knight as he explores a dimly-lit dungeon, crawling with hideous creatures, and armed only with a lance. So far, so Dark Souls. However, there are three aspects to the Deep Down experience that set it apart as something entirely different.

Firstly, all its dungeons are procedurally generated. As with, say,...
