29w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton is here with a video showcasing Watch_Dogs which goes behind the scenes with 2013's rule-breaking action epic below.
To quote: As with any jump from one console generation to the next, PlayStation 4 owners will expect to see hardware that sits at the very cutting edge of innovation, offering unparalleled processing power and an arsenal of exciting new features.
However, the onus on game developers to bring bold new gameplay innovation to the table is every bit as integral to that generational leap, and it's a responsibility that the whipsmart team behind Ubisoft's future-tech open world action title Watch_Dogs are really tearing into.
As detailed in our coverage last week, the game's core conceit - that its central hero, hacker Aiden Pearce's primary weapon is not a gun, but an entire city - is one of the boldest, most ambitious ideas to come along in some time. To find out more about the game's attempts to re-write the action rulebook, PlayStation Blog sat down with the game's creative director Jonathan Morin...
What was the first seed of the idea that later grew into Watch_Dogs?
Jonathan Morin: It started as a conversation. Four years ago we were talking about humans exchanging their lives and their...
30w ago - Earlier today a purported PlayStation 4 / PS4 E3 2013 trailer went viral on YouTube, and has since been confirmed as a fake by Sony.
Below are the details via Kotaku (linked above) alongside the PlayStation 4 / PS4 trailer for those who missed it:
That Cool 'PS4 Teaser' Is A Fake, Sony Says - Whoever made this clip wants you to believe it’s the first look at the PlayStation 4 hardware. But, Sony tells me it's a fake. Too bad.
Nevertheless, I wouldn't blame someone just wandering over onto the Internet for guessing it wasn't. Let's consider the footage, shall we? Sure, E3 is right around the corner and the super-slick 44-second video seems like it might be the work of a professional creative shop.
The facial reaction shots are intercut with looks at an already-announced PS4 game - Infamous: Second Son, in case it's not clear - and hardware but the images and video in those segments are readily available all over the Web. And the supposed hardware could be one of the many fan-made renders that are jostling for attention on the Internet.
Granted, this could be the work of MOFILM, the firm that Sony recently hired to handle crowd-sourced advertising. As good as it looks, it almost certainly be the work of a dedicated fan looking to capitalize on the excitement leading...

Cross-Buy Guacamelee! for PS3 and PS Vita on PSN this week. Guacamelee! draws its inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore, and features many interesting and unique characters.
The game also blurs the boundaries between combat and platforming by making many of the moves useful and necessary for both of these.
The game features a down on his luck Mexican named Juan Aguacate, who sets out to save the world when El Presidente's Daughter is kidnapped by an Evil Charro Skeleton.
The story takes place in and around a small village in Mexico, and has the player travelling between parallel dimensions on his quest to rescue the girl he loves. Enjoy this week's The Drop.
