Ex-Sony Engineer Kazuya Sakakihara Left His Name Inside Every PS4

400°
2w ago - Today Kotaku reports that Ex-Sony Engineer Kazuya Sakakihara left his name inside every PlayStation 4 console, and requires no PS4 decryption to see it because it's written as a text string.

Below are the details, to quote: "Kazuya Sakakihara spent ten years working at Sony as a senior software engineer, helping bring both the PS3 and PS4 to the world. He's no longer at the company (parting ways in early 2013), but before he left he made sure his name quite literally lives on inside the code of pretty much every PlayStation 4.

As you can see here, in this snippet sent in by [Register or Login to view links], Sakakihara has left his name inside the PS4's HDD code. Now, coders leaving "calling cards" is nothing new, it happens all the time, but it's usually left in the "[Register or Login to view links]", the parts where humans leave human messages for other humans. And even then, it's often in the form of initials. Sakakihara's full name is lying there in the actual code, and doesn't require any kind of decryption to see it.

Sure beats scrawling it on the bathroom wall on his last day at the office.

Interestingly, his name also has a typo. I wonder if that was just that, a typo, or whether it was a concession...
 

Video: Lost Orbit PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4 in Early 2015

2w ago - PixelNAUTS Co-founder Chris Iacobucci posted up a PS4 video trailer today announcing that Lost Orbit is coming to PlayStation 4 in early 2015.

Below are the details, to quote: Stranded after his ship is destroyed in deep space by a strange anomaly, Harrison, a lowly maintenance worker and our hero, must struggle to survive.

It's been a challenge defining Lost Orbit from the beginning. At its core, it's a fast-paced action game, but there are flowing moments of serenity. It's not unfair to describe it, as we often have, as a death simulator.

It's the union of three distinct elements: fast paced action, flowing cathartic flight, and death. In truth, the best way to describe it is to make up a new phrase: Lost Orbit is a "dodge 'em up."





On Speed

Our pathetic hero, Harrison, must take matters into his own hands in order to find salvation quickly before he freezes, or starves to death in the depths of space. There is a lot of motivation in Lost Orbit to go fast.

Not the least of which is that it's fun. Lost Orbit presents you with simple to learn mechanics that, once mastered, will enable you to blaze through levels. Upgrading Harrison's kit allows players to customize...
 

TowerFall Dark World Expansion Coming Early 2015 to PlayStation 4

50°
2w ago - Indie Game Developer Matt Makes Games Inc Matt Thorson confirmed today that their TowerFall Dark World Expansion is coming in early 2015 to PlayStation 4.

To quote: It's hard to believe that it's been 8 months since TowerFall Ascension launched on PS4. I have to thank all of our wonderful fans on PlayStation - the community response has been fantastic.

Since launching TowerFall, we've had countless requests for new levels, characters, power-ups, and modes. A lot of your suggestions have been really valuable, and after I recovered from the game's launch back in March, I began forming new ideas of my own. Slowly but surely, our plans for an expansion took shape. I'm excited to announce that the Dark World Expansion will hit PS4 in early 2015.

We want to call this an expansion rather than DLC, because it expands the game in every direction rather than providing small incremental additions. Approaching it this way allows us to tie all the new stuff together in a very cohesive manner. For you this means more playable archers, levels, modes, power-ups, variants, trials, and more.

Joining the roster we have the red archer, the Vainglorious Ghoul. As her appearance suggests, she captains an infamous ghost ship known as The Amaranth. The Amaranth, it turns out, is also one of four...

2w ago - Co-founder at No Goblin Dan Teasdale posted up a video today announcing that Roundabout is coming to PS4 and PS Vita platforms and confirmed the title will be playable at PS Experience.

To quote: Hey again, pals! I'm Dan Teasdale, and I'm one half of semi-new indie studio No Goblin. I'm super excited to announce that Panzer and I have been busy bringing Roundabout to both PS4 and PS Vita!

What's Roundabout? It's a '70s B-Movie game where you get to drive a constantly spinning limousine. As famed revolving limousine driver Georgio Manos, you'll drive around the open world of Roundabout picking up passengers, finding collectibles, competing in challenges, buying hats, and much more!

We're using a cutting edge next-gen technique called "full motion video" to recreate and render each passenger that rides in Georgio's limo with lifelike accuracy.





We're doing a ton of special stuff for the PS4 and PS Vita versions. We're remastering all of the FMV in high-bitrate 1080p to take advantage of the PS4′s horsepower! The PS Vita version is no slouch, either - in fact, it's the same full...
 

Speakeasy on PS4 Brings 1920's Brawling to PlayStation 4, Details

50°
2w ago - Junior Producer Ben Strauss announced today that upcoming PS4 title Speakeasy brings 1920's brawling to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Gun Media and SuperSoul are proud to announce their first title for PS4: Speakeasy, an engaging, local-multiplayer party game that blends rock-paper-scissors with the styles and sounds of 1920′s Roarin' America!

What makes Speakeasy so great is that it will bring you and up to 15 of your friends together in a party game that keeps you engaged from the moment you pick it up.

While it might look like a fighter on the outside, Speakeasy is an incredibly simple to learn, but difficult to master game that will require you to match wits with your opponent, who happens to be standing right next to you.

Each player will take on the role of a fighter vying for the Fisticuffs League Champion crown! The rules are simple: land one punch to win, but be warned, you only get one punch, one block and one fake each round. And with each round lasting only 10 seconds, you must choose your moves wisely.

To liven things up, you will be able to choose from multiple fighters vying for the championship. From characters inspired by famous celebrities and personalities of the 1920s, each fighter will also come with multiple costumes,...
